"I'm Martin Lee, and this is the auto sport podcast. Earlier today, McLaren revealed their MCL 60. Yes, they're breaking with their naming convention and celebrating the team's 60th anniversary of their 1963 founding. Their launch event was at woking, and they presented their new driver Oscar piastre alongside team leader. I guess we'd call him that. Lambo Norris, and their new team principal Andrea Stella, who takes over from Andreas Seidel who's going to salberg slash Alfa Romeo slash Audi, call it what you will this was very much an evolution in terms of the concept that began with their previous vehicles with some additional details to the down washing on the side pods, and also a change to the front end, slightly but there's no doubt these cars will look different in shakedown. They look different in testing. They look different when they roll out for the first time at the beginning of the season as well, but we are seeing some new details on these cars so we dispatched our man Luke Smith to McLaren headquarters in woking and I had a chat with him earlier on for our YouTube channel. Good morning, Martin, we had a lot of it has been about the history of McLaren's day. They're renaming the car out of sequence for this year, the NCL 60, 6 years since Bruce McLaren founded the company and yeah, the launch was a lot about the history of the team, but also about the future. There's been a lot of off season change that I know we're going to get into and yeah, the car behind me, they're going to be racing this season. As with most of the cars this year, it is an evolution on what they had last year, but there's definitely a noticeable amount of change around the side called area. I think we're going to see that being a running theme throughout launch season. And they've kept a lot of the black carbon areas. We know why teams did that last year for weight saving. I think it's similar to story again this year. But overall, the car, it looks great. The drivers are excited. The team is excited. A lot of it is about the future and where they're building towards, but this is nevertheless a really important year for McLaren. Lots of off season changes. We had the Red Bull launch already a very smiley Daniel Ricciardo on stage back in Red Bull team colors, but Andrea Seidel management out of the team as well. Oscar piastre inn and Andrea Stella promoted, what's the vibe in that building that you're in right now as a result of all these changes? It's honestly pretty good, like didn't changes that they made over the winter. Zach Brown said it felt like it was pretty much overnight because it was the plan was always trying to address stellar two step up into that team principal role. So it's something they've been planning for for some time and there was a question I put to Lando Norris as well what the vibes like in the team and this is what he had to say about it. I would say seamless from my perspective and I think even from everyone I was working here I guess it's quite a senior role is a big role to have changed. I'm probably a little bit by surprise for everyone. But at the same time there's no one that I know better to have fulfilled their role than Andrea. He's always been in Formula One for many years. A very down to earth hardworking guy and I think already given everyone a fresh new perspective a clean sheet on how we go about racing, how we can improve as a team, both from a car side of things, but also off the track having the mentality we need to fight against Mercedes Ferrari Red Bull. And we have a car that can fight there, how we can perform as a team. And I think everyone's got a better mentality and like you said, the vibe is, I think, better than ever. Everyone's still as motivated as ever. It's just these extra things which we're trying to work on, but it just takes time. You know, that's the life of a Formula One, is it just takes time and you got to be patient? But we have a good plan in place. Everyone's working extremely hard. It was what good roles to play. And I hope that all comes together. Yeah, he certainly really happy entering this year as a team leader and his 5th season. How is that possible? It seems like 5 minutes ago, but it is getting more and more experienced all the time. How is he feeling about taking up that frontline role alongside a rookie teammate? That's worked out pretty well for McLaren in the past, but how big a season is this for Lando? It is a very big season for Lando. He's well up for that role embracing it as the team leader. Zach Brown called him a veteran during the hearing introductions, which for a young man of 23 years old is quite strange to hear, but as you say, it's his 5th season in Formula One now. And I think he's really going to be the man leading McLaren forward this year. He knows the team, his stock has just been rising and rising with every single season. Zach Brown gave him the shot as a rookie back in 2019, and that decision has really always paid off. He knows what it takes to fight at the very front of the grid we've been seeing that. He knows that he's going to have to be patient with McLaren will take a bit of time. But yeah, it's quite clear talking to Zach Brown that there's real confidence in what Lando can do that you can take another step forward with the team this season. And yeah, this is what Zac had to say about Lando and his hopes going into 2023. You know, he continues to impress us. He's getting better and better and as you said, he's only 23. You know, I'm looking forward to seeing Oscar race with him. I think Oscar gave him a good push. We'll always help, you know, kind of take you to the next level. So hopefully they're very competitive with each other and he's certainly capable of winning races as he's demonstrated in the past, unfortunately we didn't execute. And the one opportunity that we had, but Phil had plenty more opportunities to win and looking forward to winning races with them. I reckon getting Lando signed up on a long-term deal was one of the smartest bits of business in Formula One for Zach and his team. But let's not forget about the other big bit of business they did. And that is Oscar piastre. So much said about his arrival prior to getting into the Formula One paddock, and we still haven't seen him turn a wheel in anger yet, though the contract saga last year, his junior CV, one of the most impressive on the grid. You've spoken to him today. How is he feeling about his rookie season? Very upbeat, yeah, Oscar's really an integrated himself into the McLaren team, very, very quickly and very, very well by the sounds of things Andrea Stella the team principal. He said that Oscar's quite unhappy at times in terms of the once more and more and he said, that's a really good trait to have in a driver. Oscar himself, as you say, there was a lot said through the contract saga last year and just before we started filming, he said, I'm glad she's getting down to business now and it's a really good chance to

"Auto sport magazine, I'm Martin Lee, and this is the auto sport podcast. Today we're talking the Aston Martin autosport BR D.C., young driver of the year award, something which started back in 1989 to find and assist the best junior British racing drivers. And since 2019, Aston Martin have been on board and it's a heck of a prize 200,000 pounds in a Formula One, test drive. So, what it all about, who have been the previous winners? Is it so useful that it can change a career? Let's answer all of those questions with today's podcast and welcome back to the show our chief editor, Kevin Turner. Welcome back. Hi, Martin. How's it going? Very good. Let's get up to speed then on the award former winners include world champions like Jenson Button, a 13 time Grand Prix winner David Coulthard, Dario Franchitti, Anthony Davidson, George Russell, Lando Norris. This is good company that the winners join. And it's not bad list, is it? So yeah, we've had 32 winners. 7 of them have started the world championship Grand Prix. Three of them have won a Grand Prix as you say so D.C. obviously the first one, Jensen, and then of course most recently George Russell, with his win in Brazil and he liked it at Lando will join that list at some point soon. But even the ones that haven't made it to F one almost all of them have become professional racing obviously as you say, Frank kitty is a bit of an IndyCar legend and Davidson won the won the world endurance championship. Missed out on LeMond, but we've got quite a few LeMond class wins in the former winners list as well. So yeah, it's Chris is a pretty, pretty cool list. Any pressure to keep that going on the judges? Yeah, I think there's always a little bit, but you've also got to realize that you're not going to find a Grand Prix driver every year. That would be ridiculous. On the other hand, I think we're very fortunate in Britain. We've got such a good motor sport foundation. We've got more club championships than anywhere else in the world, I think. We've got lots of teams, F one, a lot of F one teams are based here. So there's always somebody who's proper in who wins it basically. So even if they're not going to get to F one, they'll make a professional career, whether it be in sports cars or maybe touring cars or something else like that. So the list of the list of formalities is impressive. I guess there is a bit of a bit of pressure, but you can only, you can only do the best job with the drivers you have. And then we're pretty intensive the data and the testing that we go through. It's moved on a lot actually the awards since I joined in 2008 and there's a lot of data if you need it. So it probably makes it easier for us to make the right decision. It's much harder for the drivers out on track. Well, let's talk about our most recent winner then. Who was that? And when was the last time you saw him? Zako Sullivan, won it last year, and our last saw him when he was having his F one prize drive at Silverstone in the Aston Martin AMR 21, which I pointed out the other day means he's probably driven the fastest F one car we've ever seen at the test because previously it's been the previous generation of cars. And because this is last year's car, it's actually quicker than the current. The current generation of F one car. So it's about as quick as it gets really. So what's that like then? How does that day go when they finally get the chance? Because he had to wait a long time since being crowned the winner to finally get inside the car. Well, it used to be, it used to be longer because obviously sometimes if these drives have only driven quite a lower category car, like some of the old days, it would come out a formula Ford or to go from formula four no slicks or wings and stick them in an F one car within a year. It's a bit of a shout. So in the old days, it used to be two, three, four years before they got there, F one test, but now we try and do it. Yeah, they're basically a year on. So at the following year's tests. And it's nice to get the file list for that year to get there as well and go, look, this is what you could be doing next year. It's really cool. They quite often know each other because they've been coming through the junior ranks together. So it's nice to get family and friends and whatever together. So yeah, but I mean, for Zach, he's driven in 2022, he was in FIA formula three. So even from that to an F one car, he is a big old jump. You know, he said that the biggest thing was breaking. He was breaking 15, 20 meters later than the F three car but arriving 80 to 90 miles an hour faster. So he said Silverstone Sunday seemed a much smaller circuit than it had done in anything else. And that's how quick F one cars are. So what preparation does Zach get under the winners get? Do they get time in a simulator? Do they get to woody have spent time with Aston Martin before just rocking up at Silverstone that morning? Well, it varies a little bit from year on year depending on what's available when timing and other commitments, but and of course he's a Williams academy driver as well. So you have to be a little bit careful with that. But yeah, he had some time in the simulator. And obviously, I mean, just working the steering wheel of a modern F one car is like requires a more PhD anyway. So he was given all that information. But he's a very sharp guy. When one

"The SEC got involved because Kardashian's post failed to say how much she was paid to promote Emacs. That's rule when you promote securities. In the meantime, judge Fitzgerald said that he would be issuing a final written order in due time. Thursday. Chainlink labs announced today that they have a product available that's designed to help resolve cryptos, trust issues. Their proof of reserve product was announced on November 10th. It was in a tweet thread that chainlink labs asked their followers quote, will crypto continue to repeat the mistakes of traditional black box financial industry. Or will a better system emerge? And they said that a better system is available. They offer proof of reserves as a way of providing transparency for the user. They said that POR is good for verifying centralized exchange asset reserves off chain bank account balances, cross chain collateral, real world asset reserves, and much more. This, of course, is in response to the biggest story in crypto right now. The black swan event of FTX. They've been processing withdrawals slowly, if at all, due to liquidity issues. And now, not only FTX, but the whole crypto market is being affected. In the aftermath, one solution to the trust issues that was offered was requiring exchanges to use a proof of preserve system. Proof of reserve is something that lets users audit the reserves in exchanges holding in real time. Some exchanges have already put such a system in place. In fact, binance CZ has said that all exchanges should offer this. However, other exchanges have said that this will take significant time for them to implement. Inter chain link labs, because they say that their product is an out of the box solution, which means exchanges can just stand up their own system immediately. And simply put, what chain links system does is verify off chain assets and reflect the amounts of those assets on chain. So they're hooking their chain link nodes to the exchanges API. These nodes are all linked to a proof of reserve smart contract. And it's a pretty decent solution from what I can see, the smart contract can be queried by anyone on the network. Then the query is basically, do they have more assets than liabilities? So far, binance has posted a page called proof of assets. This page clearly details finances, activity for both hot and cold wallets, although to be clear, they didn't use chain links system when they set their own up. Friday. Would you trust a dog with your fortune? If you said no, you're clearly not thinking like a cryptocurrency exchange. One of the effects of the collapse of FTX is likely to be the proliferation of proof of reserves. People are going to want transparency into the platforms that they trust their money on. I think this is going to extend beyond exchanges. I think we're going to see proof of most parts of the crypto space that deal with custody, other people's money. And while full on, proof of reserve disclosures aren't a thing yet, crypto dot com is one exchange that has taken a preliminary step of sharing wallet addresses with nansen. Nansen is a blockchain analytics firm. And nansen has created a dashboard that shows crypto dot com's nearly $3 billion worth of reserves and assets. And there are a number of things that you would expect to see on that list, and you do. Bitcoin makes up 30% of their holdings. Ethereum makes up 17.19%. Now what's interesting is how much crypto dot com has invested in chiba. And while I know there has been interest into making into a more serious cryptocurrency, most consider it to be a meme token, inspired by a joke token. And it's very volatile. So roughly $558 million of crypto dot com's reserves are in sheba. That's more than they are storing in Ethereum. The exchange only has 487 million in Ethereum. So you think about that. It seems weird, right? Maybe not. Because a spokesperson said quote, the reason our proof of reserves include chiba is because we hold customers balances one to one. Thus, our proof of reserves are dictated by our customer holdings. So they're holding so much ship because users are holding so much ship. Martin Lee is a data journalist at nansen, and he said that the large amount of Shibuya is a direct reflection of the interest of their customers. He said quote, in an ideal world, we'd want the best assets to be worth the most. But sheep and doge both have extremely high market caps. Not super surprising that retail heavy exchanges will have a higher concentration of such tokens. And regardless, as an exchange, your main source of revenue would likely be trading fees. Whether it's meme coins or more fundamentally sound assets, your business model is intact. So serious token or memecoin, shib is still one of the most popular cryptocurrencies out there. They have a $5.74 billion market cap and a 24 hour trading volume of about $350 million. And we're going to leave it there for the night. I want to thank you, my listeners, because when you stop listening, I will stop talking. We'll see you tomorrow night.

"Sport that common also sport magazine. I'm Martin Lee and this is the auto sport podcast. NASCAR has seen nothing like it. A final turn overtake by going round the outside and hitting the wall intentionally. It's something out of video games as our editor Charles Bradley said part inspiration part insanity. Even the driver said, his eggs were slightly scrambled afterwards if you haven't seen it Ross Chastain didn't even lift off. Didn't even break for turn three on the final lap of Sunday's NASCAR Cup Series playoff race at Martinsville. Instead, he grabbed 5th, nailed the gas and went round the outside by using the wall to bounce off. Like I say, this is video game stuff. But had he practiced it had he thought about it in advance, will any driver want to do it again and is it even safe to do that if you pre meditate it? Let's get up to speed with motor sport dot com as primary NASCAR editor. Make the great Nick a probably a debut for you on the auto sport podcast. So welcome along. Yeah, it's cool to be here. I do believe this is my first time. So let's talk NASCAR because this is captivated the world. The clip's gone round the world many times. NASCAR is about entertainment. Let's face it. And this was the most entertaining thing a lot Fernando Alonso tweeted this is motor sports best moment of 2022. I've briefly introduced what happened there. This crazy intentional crash. Sort of. But can you just lay the table a little bit for us? Where were NASCAR right? For any of our fans that aren't following it week in week out. When NASCAR racing, what was the format of the race, you know, how many cars, what was at stake for finishing that high up? Can you let us know the background leading up to this event? Yeah, so after the first 26 races, NASCAR resets the championship for the top 16 people in points, sometimes it's not so much the guy with the most points. It's the guys with the wins and then they go buy points because winds get preferential treatment over playoff points, but once we get into the playoffs, they start chomping down the field. Every three races, down to 12, down to 8. And each round is three races, and this last race, the penultimate race of the 2022 season in Martinsville speedway a little half mile short track, that cut the field from 8 to four. And those final four get to battle for the championship this weekend. No points, highest finisher among them is the champion. So it's really the big one you need to get if you want to win this championship. It's the last step onto that final pedestal so you can really go for it and Ross Chastain in his first year as a NASCAR Cup Series winner and track house racing's first year as a fully autonomous racing organization. Have a chance to make it to the final four with the most established teams in NASCAR Penske Gibbs hunter and so on. And he's two points out on the final lap. Danny Hamlin, NASCAR veteran. He's never won the championship, though, one of the most successful drivers in history without a title, he's 5 positions of the road from Ross. And each position is one point. So Ross needs to pass two cars on the last lap. His spotter tells him that a screw chief tells him that. And they think, okay, he's going to send it off on the final corner, just run over people, because unfortunately we see a lot of that. At this point in the playoffs, people get very desperate and it can get massive. It can get dirty. But he found another way. He threw that thing against the wall like you said and let it ride. Wide open and made up 5 positions and made the final four is just incredible. It defies physics. I've seen some stuff afterwards saying that when he grabbed 5th a gear you wouldn't normally use on this track, he pulled 5G's in the first part of the corner at a 125 miles an hour easily the fastest ever lap by something like 1.8 or two seconds. And it worked. And he pulled it off, he intentionally sent it into the wall. Like, these cars are built tough. I couldn't believe what I was watching. He didn't spin, he didn't wreck, just it's something out of a video game and I'm sure if anyone listening hasn't seen it, they're going to go. And watch it right now. But let's get into what happened. So he and Hamlin are tied on points. He has to pull something off. Now, NASCAR drivers have spotters and he spotted tells him what I think I've tried to watch this in real time. He's unlike turn two or something where he spotted says, you need two spots here, because it all happens so quickly. Ross replies got to get him and the spotter says, yeah, gotta get him. Need two, and at that point, I think bell crosses the line to win. No one's talking about the winner, by the way, after this event. He had a great race too. What is his way to the 500? Nobody cares. No one cares. And he just absolutely full wide open hits the wall and rides it around the outside at speed. Phil Serge and the crew chief is immediately on the radio guy like that's ridiculous dude. You start to hear the other drivers Joey Logano goes holy bleep. Did you see that? Chase Briscoe says that's literally the coolest thing I've ever seen in my life. Now the opportunity to race for a championship with Logano Elliott and Belle looks 75 years of NASCAR is it next year? I can't think that anybody and I'm not the most hardcore NASCAR fan, but I can't think I've ever seen this before. But what I want to know is, has anyone tried it and failed before? Yeah, when you saw the NASCAR industry people on that last lap, they're genuine reaction. It tells you that's never successfully been done before, but it has been attempted. A few times, and I think the key here was the car itself because we've seen it in previous years, Kyle Larson, who ironically enough was kind of critical of it after the race, one of the only drivers

"Sport dot com and also sport magazine? I'm Martin Lee, and this is the auto sport podcast. Formula One 2022 could have been Ferrari's triumphant return to the top, a drivers and constructors world championship were in play. Three races in, Charles Leclerc was 46 points clear of eventual winner, Max Verstappen, and more importantly, Ferrari looked like they had pace in their pocket at the start of the year. In Suzuka, just over a week ago Verstappen's title was more of a coronation or a formality with the margin of a 113 points over leclerc and in Austin this weekend, Red Bull could well clinch the team battle two. Ferrari weren't just bested, they were well beaten. With four races to go and no major rules change going into next year, today we ask, what next? For Ferrari. How much of a missed opportunity was this year? How far away are they at the minute from beating Red Bull and what the drivers can take forward into next year, let's get up to speed with auto sports, Luke Smith, Luke, welcome back to the podcast. Thank you Martin pleasure as always to be on. So let's look at the F one 75 as it emerged in testing in the context of recent Ferrari history over the last few years. What did you make of it? I think the initial science was very, very positive. I think everybody saw Ferrari coming out of the box pretty quick. We always expected a big upward swing from them given just how bad 2020 in particular had been when their engine was obviously so far down on power, and they made a good step forward into 21, but we knew that the regulation chain for 22. That was their big opportunity. That's what they put all their chips on to really try and make a big step forward. So yeah, when we saw through testing that Ferrari were looking pretty, pretty strong, pretty comfortable. I must say, compared to what Red Bull and Mercedes were doing, Mercedes in particular was struggling quite a bit. I think there was a definite sense of expectation that, yeah, Ferrari may well be back. They may well be really in the hunt this year for both championships once again. We knew they had two very, very good drivers who just needed the right car underneath them. And I think that, yeah, what we saw in testing and then obviously into the first race in Bahrain, that kind of proved the point that Ferrari was definitely going to be a threat in this championship battle, also we thought. So in the beginning, we had Ferrari leading the season. For the first time in years, no dominance, Mercedes, at this stage of the year, how did Ferrari manage to take first blood? Well, the car, I think, weirdly, in what actually turns out being the weakness. So Ferrari as we get later into the season. But reliability was what really got them the upper hand to begin with. We saw that in the opening three races, Red Bull really, really struggled with that. We saw them lose both their cars later on in the season opener and Bahrain, Red Bull that opened the door for Ferrari to take a one two finish, and then once again, in Australia, then Friday they were clearly quickest, Charles Leclerc was controlling that race, and then another fuel pump issue hit Max Verstappen and forced him to retire Verstappen, as you said, was a long way adrift of leclerc in the point standings by that time and the season. Even then, max was saying, oh, it's going to take a lot to turn the champs around now and 46 points behind or whatever it was. And now we are forays from the end of the season and it's all finished already. So it shows how quickly things can change. But the Ferrari code just looked like a very, very good old rounder at that point. It was clearly very, very strong through the corners. I think that was a big, big thing. And I think that it looked like it really could go toe to toe with Red Bull. They look very much sort of equal pegging, but Ferrari actually seemed a bit more reliable at that time of the year. And that would all turn around as the season wore on, but I think that in the early part of the season, it did really look like Ferrari and Red Bull. We're going to have this ding dong battle right the way through back and forth to the end of the season because it was a really good start by Ferrari. A lot of good confidence. I think from the team, even in imola, we were talking about do they need to get behind one driver or the other, do they need to put all their money basically and everything behind the clerk and if they're going to win this championship, it's all kind of faded to nothing in the end because here we are for a season and Ferrari not even close to winning that breakthrough championship. So as things began to change for the worse for Ferrari. What happened next in the season and was it something sudden or was it a slow kind of drip drip drip of them losing performance? What happened next to bring Red Bull and well specifically Max Verstappen back into the title hunt. The performance definitely did start to move more Red Bull's way. And I think we didn't see that take a huge swing really until after the summer break. I think that's when you can really say Red Bull moved clear and definitely had the quickest car. But up till then it was very, very even between the two teams and I think if you look through the sequence of races, you look at imola, for example, leclerc and Verstappen had that very close battle in the sprint race, then the clerk made that really costly error come the race day and that cost him a surefire second place dropped him to 6th in the end. Miami we saw the Red Bull were just like a little bit quicker and able to defeat Ferrari and then comes the runner races where I think the season did seem like it fell apart for Ferrari, the Spanish Grand Prix, Charles Leclerc was leading pretty pretty comfortably. I must say in the opening stages Verstappen had already gone off and made a mistake. It looked like leclerc was going to win that race and the engine failed. He was forced to retire from the race. Then we get to Monaco again Ferrari in a good position. Leclerc arm pole position, finally trying to break this home race hoodoo that's placed right the way through his career. And again, they just get their strategy a little bit wrong. Leclerc gets stuck with traffic, ends up forth, Red Bull win the race with Sergey parrots. Azerbaijan, leclerc again, leading the engine fails again, Max Verstappen went. It all starts to add up, and I think that it was really a time when Ferrari, they clearly did have the ability to win all of these races. You look at that run

"Sport magazine. I'm Martin Lee, and this is the auto sport podcast. Another round of the world rally championship at the weekend and home hero couldn't quite bring it home first, but he wasn't far behind. Hyundai's tanakh though held off the world rally championship leader Kelly Robin Pereira to claim a stunning victory at rally Finland. But the Finns weren't absent, like I say, from the top of the time sheets and there's so much to talk about today, including a thrilling weekend of rally. Filling up your leaky car from a Lake and a hot new co driving talents that's the talk of the service park. That's long-term listeners know what I'm referring to. But we'll get back to you. I think you've made a very, very poor judge for that. We'll get to Tom's exploits at the end of the podcast, but first of all, I'm joined on gravel notes by Tom Howard fresh back from Finland. You got in yesterday, but you were there for quite a while because like I say this cove co driving stuff, we'll get to, but you fresh back, what did you make of that rally Finland and the result? Yeah, yeah, what's a rally? I think we've been spoiled this year for rally just in terms of the quality of the competition and just exactly just some of the events that unfold during them. And I think, yeah, it's going to be hard to top what happened in rally Finland. I think this year, I think for many people, this will be so far what the standout rally in terms of not only the competition, but the support behind it, the amount of people that turned up to watch just the hype surrounding it all. Yeah, it was unlike any of the other rallies of visited this year. So yeah, absolutely extraordinary. And I have to say hats off to a talent. That will probably be one of, if not, the greatest drive he's had so far in his career was absolutely astonishing. You described it as an against the odds performance. And that's because the odds were in the favor of rally favorite Cali rob perra and the Toyotas, which have been barnstorming. The Japanese manufacturer having a huge winning run at rally Finland. And also just the fact that he had to be the to win this rally had to do the equivalent of qualifying laps for the whole weekend, complete maximum attack mode. Tell me about that. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, just to put this into context, just two or three weeks ago and rally Estonia, which is obviously ten X backyard and was expected to obviously perform, but this remember the hind eye isn't as good a car as the Toyota so it was always going to be a bit of a tall order for him and in Estonia. He was beaten by Callie Robin pair by almost two minutes, so and these roads are very similar to fill and not quite as extreme, but it's a similar type of rally. So to come to Finland to Toyotas backyard Cali rob Perez backyard and two with a car that let's be honest isn't as good as the Toyota and to be able to fend off these Toyotas and win fend off Callie Robin Pereira and when this rally, yes, simply astonishing, nobody saw this coming. You would have got very long odds on a result like this happening. I mean, let's be honest tanak is good, very, very, very good driver at a 29er 19 world champion and a two time rally Finland winner before this weekend. So we know he can go fast here, but what he did and if you ever get the chance to watch some of the action, he's just on the edge the entire 22 stages, which you just simply, you can't do this in these days in WRC. It's impossible to be absolutely on it for the entire rally, trying to haul a machine that isn't quite as fast as a competitor's to victory. It was, yeah, just amazing. I don't know quite how he did it. It was just an inspired performance from tannic to, as I said, produce an against the odds victory. We're going to hear from all top three on the podcast today, so let's hear from tanak talking to you as he talks about his satisfying win. Your most satisfying victory. It is that teddy is very satisfying and it's very special.

"Also sport magazine. I'm Martin Lee. And this is the auto sport podcast. Well, that was epic and I'm not just talking about David avali, pit lane interviews. I'm getting my request in early for him to do more of those. He brings the energy from his commentary. Now to sprint race weekend, 5 red flags in qualifying. Conditions variable changeable will say. The Emilia romagna Grand Prix sprint race was well and truly shaken up the grid I should say, shake it up with Max Verstappen on pole. For the first time as defending world champion. Charles Leclerc's Ferrari lining up alongside him with his, oh, just the minor matter of a 46 point lead over Verstappen, even if he is in damage limitation mode this weekend. Leclerc is in the right place. McLaren should be delighted with Lando Norris in third, even happier will be huss with Kevin Magnussen in fourth, joining me on the podcast. Today is also sport dot com. Editor, Hayden Cobb, well that was a bit of a qualifying session, a long one. It really was, I think it's probably going to be the longest session of the entire weekend, which is a bit odd when you think it's a sprint weekend, and that was just qualifying. Yes, it was 5 red flags across the sort of three mini segments of qualifying an hour of 40 roughly all told. Yeah, it was a long stint for everyone involved. As I saw someone on social media say, quite inconsiderate of any racing to get in the way of what was basically one long red flag session. I told you the grid was looking different though Fernando Alonso alongside Daniel Ricciardo for 5th and 6th Perez down in 7th Bottas in 8th even though he retired the car in three Vettel in 9th and Carlos Sainz intent, even though he never even took part in the session. The two Mercedes lining up 11th and 13th for Russell and Hamilton respectively. Where shall we start? Let's talk through the red flags actually because this was a session which I've seen people saying afterwards that Max Verstappen locked in to poll. I disagree. I'll tell you why on that right. First red flag, Alban's exploding rear brakes, any muse online or to sport dot com about what's causing that because this is starting to become a bit of a Williams pattern. Any idea how they said afterwards, I've not seen the quotes or anything. Have you seen anything to do with what caused that? So they're still doing the formal investigation, but it very much seems like you said about the pattern of what they had an identical issue in pre season testing in Bahrain, which was happened to Latifi at the time. And it sort of strokes incredibly quickly as in the team don't even really get too much warning of it. The brake temperatures go through the roof and suddenly it's on fire and it's the rear brakes in particular, which is exactly same thing that happened to Alban in Q one of qualifying. He was about three or four corners into a push lap and then would you know it, the right rear brake is quite literally on fire and then explodes. It seems to be if it is the same issue, the sort of caked in brake drum causing this friction catching something and generally the temperature within the brake drum going sky high. And before they know it, it's in flames. It's always very visually eye catching. It was in Bahrain and even more so this afternoon because it literally has the TV cameras caught it. It literally exploded in a fireball that sent bits of carbon fiber and a bits of Williams cars sort of everywhere. And there were some fantastic shots of a bit of pace on fire run over by one of the McLaren's. It was thankfully nothing else happened after that. It was very, very great visual to grab. But yes, that was the first red flag. And it sort of carried on from there in various amounts. I really did say he couldn't set a time he did three laps in total. Also knocked out in the Alpine Esteban ocon and also in the Williams Nicholas Latifi and the two alpha tauris. Now that's going to be a big, big blow to go out in Q one for gasoline and sonoda. Because earlier in the season, they've shown real signs of pace, any clues yet as to where that pace went in imola. Yeah, strange one. I think they really misjudged the Q one time is with these sort of red flags in The Rain coming in and out. I mean, they were on track and on the right tyre, IE the dry tyres. So they didn't sort of mess up strategy wise, just pace just wasn't there in that particular session. They had no K one practice session on the Friday. And of course, that's all or anyone had because of the sprint race format. So maybe they just didn't get the tire in the window and you know, obviously with time ticking and Q one, there's no second chances. And granted sonoda did miss out by 0.004 seconds. To Lewis Hamilton being knocked out in Q one of all people. So they would just fractionally off it, but yeah, I mean, those are the fine margins in Formula One and that's why they were both out in Q one. And then going into Q two, so Carlos Sainz had set a pretty decent lap. He was two tenths off of Max Verstappen in the final Q two timings, but he was on a second flying lap. They asked him to do a second push lap. And when I say that he was finished tenth, that's because his time was good enough to get through to Q three. He just couldn't take part in that because he bend it and after the qualifying session, he seemed really frustrated. And I've seen some feedback afterwards, maybe Ferrari fans, I don't know, saying, he just can't catch a break. He's so unlucky. Yes, but Australia was his doing. And technically today was his doing. I mean, he got onto the slippery painted white line, and it spun him round, so yeah, I don't want to be hard on the guy, but that's two mistakes in a row. And I think he's equally frustrated because he said afterwards, he wasn't even pushing that hard, even though it was a second push lap. He had plenty in reserve, and you hear him on the radio back to the team, just apologetic, and yeah, he went into the weekend signing a new two year deal with Ferrari, but look, the more this goes on, the more he's going to be.

Well, you asked me about the Martin email I quote. And of course, it's in my Bonham for book, but it's everywhere. Martini Mueller was a hero, a German hero, he fought in World War one. He got into the ministry, and he was just an incredible guy. But he was slow to wake up to the Nazi threat. He thought, like a lot of people do, like, well, we can work with them or they're not so bad or something, right? Well, when he finally woke up, it was too late, and he wrote a poem and you were talking about it. It's a famous quote where he says, when they came for the trade unionists, I was not a trade unionist. So I didn't speak up. When they came for the communists, I was not a communist, so I didn't say anything. I didn't speak up. When they came for the Jews, I was not a Jew. So I didn't say anything. I didn't speak up. And then when they came for me, there was no one left to speak up for me. And that's the idea is that we need to stand with others. When they say, I'm going to cancel so and so. I'm going to cancel I'm going to come after so and so if we don't all stand for those people, I say it's about Mike lyndell. I tell people buy pillows you don't need. Use the code Eric.

If you're wondering about the areas political future, and for more, let's go to Hong Kong down Bloomberg Daybreak Asia host Brian Curtis Johnny in the coming week, Hong Kong will hold the election committee subsector elections. Only those vetted to be patriots are eligible, so it's perhaps better to say the committee will be formed in the coming week. There will be 1500 members of the Election committee. This committee is responsible for electing 40 of the 90 seats in the Legislative Council in the 2021 election that's coming up in December. And the chief executive in the 2022 election. Joining me is Matthew Brooker, columnist for Bloomberg Opinion in Hong Kong, and Ian Marlowe, senior government reporter. Ian, perhaps I can go to you first. Well, let me just tell the audience. We have opposition parties that have disbanded here in Hong Kong. We have leading opposition figures like Martin Lee and Lee Wing tat, who have either retired or left Hong Kong many democracy supporters like Jimmy Lai, who are currently in jail and others. Student leaders, former student leaders like Nathan Law and others have resettled. Abroad. So first let me put it to you. What is the threshold for politicians here to prove that one is a patriot? Yeah. I mean, I think there's a low tolerance for any sort of, uh, opposition sentiment at the moment in Hong Kong. I mean, we've we've We've always had a situation in Hong Kong where people had to be. Had to be judged to have genuinely up held the basic law of the mini constitution here before running for office. But the situation now is that people are being over the last year and a bit disqualified, kicked out of office of fully jailed for National security crimes or alleged crimes that were, you know, basically in yesteryear. We're just regular parts of political organizing. I think the The election committee that's being formed now is sort of the you know, In some ways, the final coffin of Hongkong's, You know, sort of attempt to move towards some form of fuller democracy and They're basically going to be appointing quite a large chunk of Ledge Co. And then you have this other committee that will be vetting candidates for suitability for office based on patriotism and another qualifications and just the other day, there was a long Press conference from Carrie Lam, the chief executive about the oath, taking the kind of loyalty pledge to China that they were making all these district councillors take, which has led to an exodus of 260 of the nearly 500. You know, Um local district councillors who won office back in November 2019. So it's a It's A It's a high threshold for patriotism and, well, that was an election that that scared the establishment here and also, Beijing had 85% of the seats won by Quote unquote opposition politicians. So Matthew, in your view, is politics dead in Hong Kong. Bone in any, uh, conventional sense that we would understand it from the democratic world. Yes, obviously it is theirs. Almost no tolerance for departure from the kind of official pro government line at this point. I mean, we've seen that there's been a, uh, correctly described by Indians very good in our systems approach. I mean, that's what we've seen. It's been a purge of the opposition pretty much in its entirety. If I could draw a comparison with the regulatory crackdown in China, we have seen the party in a couple of instances, seemingly get on the defensive and come out and try to soften the blow of this. Matthew, Have you seen anything like that in this realm? No, not at all. I think Um, I think it's very clear that they, um they just the Communist Party decided they were. They were very, I think alarmed by the progress of events in Hong Kong. Probably particularly by the District Council elections at the end of 2019. After all the unrest, uh sometimes violent protests. Um, and there had been this line pumped out by the government and its supporters that there was a silent majority who were against the protests, and I think they really actually believe that they expected these people to come out. Uh, and repudiate what had happened in Hong Kong in the course of 2019, and we saw the opposite We saw at landslide for the pro democracy parties. And I think they decided very clearly, then that that's it. We're not having any more of it, Matthew. Thank you. Matthew Brooker, columnist for Bloomberg Opinion here in Hong Kong, and Ian.

"Conviction rate of the criminal legal system nevertheless we still persist and legal reform. So let us not dismiss article foreign five because of the imperfections of a un or international human rights system. The second suggestion are wanna say is that we need to maintain attention to the cases underway. It is complex overlap. Many of the thousands for the alab cases from two thousand nineteen or overlapping with the twelve. As well as the forty seven. So i think we really need to maintain attention to this. What happens to them. Democracy dies in darkness but the protection of the rights of the people in custody cannot also disappear into a black hole and this requires all of us to be paying. Attention are specific platforms. Perhaps jerry we can talk about and that is that could be deployed like the olympics. Twenty twenty two a hong kong upcoming iccpr review at the un and etc. But i i look forward to the discussion. And because there's quite a rich and diverse depths of expertise and i look forward to the passions and discussions l. We've heard a second very powerful than comprehensive statement. I'd like to begin the discussion by five o'clock a we have a few minutes for my own. Immediate questions In listening to these wonderful talks it seemed to me. there are three other issues. I'd like to hear more about first of all and this is a matter of concern to all of us taking art here is. Are we by holding this meeting in violation of the national security law hong kong. We haven't focused yet on the overseas. Reach that the pr. See the hong kong government claims to have in exercising jurisdiction of what we say outside of hong kong. We're not chinese nationals. Were not residents of hong kong at this point Do they have any rights at charge us. After i noticed the last time we had an in person roundtable that the council on hong kong were the speakers. Martin lee the great. Us civil libertarian. Lawyer and jimmy lai the publisher of the full of now been convicted. And martin is uh spirit. Jail at this point sees eighty two jimmy. Lai's a seventy three i think. And he's likely to be there the rest of his life. I was disappointed when we have that session. That are martin was his usual incisive fearless. Self jimmy lai will never met before was disappointingly. Moderate and at one point. I whispered to him. You could be outspoken here. The council is free. it was off the record Talk and for reasons. I couldn't understand. He seemed much more moderate than his image. So that's one question. What is the reach. Legitimate reach of this national security second and a dentist started to touch on this is what is the role of foreign judges. I supported e continuing participation on the court of final appeal of hong kong of the permanent of the non permanent judges from the uk and canada. Australia cetera. i've i changed my view since the national security though because i ask myself and others. Nobody's answered denison the physician to answer this What role do these aren judges. Play a court of final. He did they get to consider the bail. Application of jimmy lai. I didn't see them participating. Do they take part in these other issues. That our national security law cases or even sedition cases. Are they mere decoration. Are they just window dressing. And i think if i were asked and you notice they never ask. American common law people who were experts to serve interpret common law in the basic law of mean commonwealth. But if i were asked to serve or any american good. I wouldn't do this now. It's a misleading of the public. And i want to hear what our experts say. The third question. I have is. We haven't mentioned the most recent development. Which is the effort by the government through writing a letter to a civic organization to insist that it reveal all its records going back decades. Its membership its finances foreign funds. It's received and i thought this law is not applicable as jared has emphasize it's not to be retroactive. But what should the defense do in these cases so they three issues. I'd love to hear some brief comments and then we have a great audience. I'd like to talk to them so we need brief answers area. I'll i'll try to answer question. Two and free briefly You ask what is the roll off the foreign non-permanent judges in hong kong. And i agree with you. That what i think. The s the question is what are they actually doing going to hong kong. First of all they will not be allowed to hear national security related cases. Because i'm in under the era of a patriots administrating hong kong okay Do you think they would regard. These foreign judges stayed being. Beijing asked patriots of china. That's ludicrous to say that. The british or australian judge will be regarded as a patriot. fit to administer hong kong especially when it comes to these national security cases so these judges will not be allowed to hear a national security cases. Where the rule of law is under most severe attack. they would have nothing to do with those cases. That's number one number two is. How much do these judges really understand. What's happening on the ground. go up to hong kong. Maybe one or two months per year. They lift than mandarin oriental with driver and know day. Go in and out of the court of final appeal building here a few cases which is across the street from there..

"Marco werman the world. It is good to have you with us on this friday. We begin with news out of russia yesterday. The biden administration slapped sanctions on the kremlin this afternoon. Moscow responded the rules. Daniel offman has been following the story for us and gets us going today. Daniel just remind us of the valleys in this back and forth. What were some of the measures. Us put in place yesterday and house. Russia now responding. We'll since president biden has come into office. His administration said that they would review what they call. Malign activities from the russian government and yesterday was the day when they announced robust sanctions against russia and that included sanctions against russia's economy that included kicking out ten russian diplomats from washington some of which the by administration said were intel agents and they also sanctioned thirty two entities and individuals who the biden administration. Say attempted to influence the twenty twenty presidential election so what is russia now doing in response so from russia's perspective. This is tit for tat. So russia is going to expel ten american diplomats from moscow. Russia will sanction eight members of the biden administration. Personally finally russia's saying that. It wants john sullivan. The us ambassador to russia to go back to washington for quote consultation. The us and russia have long. Been at loggerheads. Daniel can you some. How the relationship got to this low point. Well we could go. As far back as the obama administration remember. When obama came into office. they tried a so called reset. With russia with the kremlin and that didn't quite work out because of a number of factors one of which was russia invading crimea in two thousand fourteen and illegally annexing the peninsula and also leading to a war in eastern ukraine and that was followed in twenty sixteen with russia. Meddling in the us elections so many of these themes linger in addition to some other malign activities that the biden administration says russia's responsible including hacks and other influence campaigns so with all of that lingering. The tensions are only rising which has led to the sanctions we saw yesterday and now the counter sanctions that we're seeing from russia today right and very little correction to the relationship under trump. What kind of pathway forward is there now for the us. russia relationship. We'll earlier this week. President biden did call. Russian president vladimir putin in part to say that the us stands with ukraine and supports ukrainian sovereignty. But at the end of the call both leaders also mentioned that they would like to meet in person for a summit so there is a sense that both sides would like to talk even with tensions being high but it seems like that won't happen anytime soon. Due to these heavy sanctions from both sides. The wolves daniel offman. Thank you for being on this news. Thank you very much marcle. It seems mainland. China is not hitting pause on its crackdown on democracy in hong kong today. Multiple pro democracy activists and opposition politicians were sentenced in hong kong court including prominent democracy advocates. Like jimmy lai and martin lee. we're joined by jeff wasser strength professor at the university of california irvine where he studies modern chinese history. First of all professor your reaction to the sentences. I mean these are some high profile hong kongers and some of them are not young. Are you surprised by any of this. Well it's not surprising that it's happened now the sentencing. It was a surprise a year ago when they were arrested. Because it's not just their age but it's also they were largely seen as moderate figures within the democracy movement so it was surprising how widespread the crackdown on anybody who has supported even the mildest form of protests. And even the most gradualist moves to try to bring more democracy to hong kong which has never been fully democratic but all the partially democratic aspects of it have just been hammered away during the last year so these two prominent figures who were sent us today. Jimmy lyon martin. Lee remind us who they are. So martin lee. Whose was part of the group of lawyers who actually helped negotiate the deal by which hong kong will become part of the people's republic of china guaranteeing that it would have some degree of difference from mainland cities went to became part of the pr c and nineteen ninety seven when it stopped being british colony. He's a key figure in the democracy movement. I would add a third figure. Margaret ing is also crucially important. She's a highly respected legal force within hong kong and another person who's seen is very moderate. Jimmy lai is more of firebrand journalist. He's the publisher of the highest profile pro democracy newspaper so the three of them really stand out and marketing. Had i think the best lines she reta statement about the fact that the law needs to serve the people not people be forced to serve the law. And it's a really powerful statement. Jeff from where i sit. It seems like some of the younger protesters and hong kong have been much more vocal. In out mistreat strategically finding ways to out with the police. Generally more of a difference against beijing ruling hong kong then like jimmy is. Is there a reason. Beijing is going after these higher profile moderates. So jimmy lai has a very powerful voice through apple daily his newspaper and the whole media group and so going after him symbolizes going after. What's laughed of freedom of the press in hong kong going after margaret. Hang in a sense is going after. What's left of hong kong. Having courts that had a high degree of independence a legal system. That was quite different. I think it's important that the british colonial system it was never democratic in hong kong. At all there were just small places where people could express their views and there was a high degree of rule of law on the mainland at has often been much more rule by law with the government using law to shape how society works rather than lobbying around in which people can contest things that the government is doing so in realm after realm. It's the government trying to rein in the areas of hong kong life. That could be separate. But you're right. These are not figures who were on the front lines doing the most militant actions during twenty nineteen. I mean it really seems like many. Maybe most of the prominent pro democracy. Lawmakers the protest organizers the public figures that they're caught up in the government's crackdown many of them now facing jail time what is left of the movement the pro democracy movement at this point so the movement. You're right anybody who had any degree of kind of leadership who is still in hong kong is either in prisoner expecting to be in prison soon the important thing to notice that a fair number of people have gone into exile and i hate to ever for close possibilities because hong kong has shown a steady process of making fools forecasters. It was never supposed to be a great city and it did. There was a lot of expectation that right after the handover in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven it would immediately die and become just like any other mainland city and yet somehow it managed to preserve a degree of difference. I think it's important not to think of hong kong as being dad but the one country two systems framework that provided a lot of breathing space for there that i think is dead by move such as this and the whole last year of moves like it that have been coming jeff. Wasser studies modern chinese history at the university of california irvine. We've been speaking about today. Sentences of democracy activists and high profile leaders in hong kong.

"Los Angeles Children's Hospital Los Angeles because your child's health is essential first for Arizona State. Their head coach is Bobby Hurley, the great guard from Duke fame back in the early nineties, his sixth season now and Arizona state, and this is not the lineup he wanted to put out this evening, but this is what he's got left there without four key players. Most importantly, Remy Martin Lee, all Pac 12 Point guard, who returned for his senior season. He is out due to covert protocols today in his place in the backcourt. They're two stars will be Alonzo Verge Junior, a six to senior from Chicago 17 points per game 4.5 rebounds per game. He is the reigning Pac 12 6th Man of the year. There. Freshman Phanom is Josh Christopher. He's the Southern California guy from Carson 65 freshmen. He averages 17.5 points per game to lead Arizona State. 5.5 rebounds also leads the team in steals. Holland Woods will take a starting lineup spot 6 Ft. £180 grad transfer from Phoenix. He comes from Portland State, where he was all Big Sky Last season. Marcus Bagley, a 6 Ft. 8 £215 freshman from Sacramento. He is the Younger brother of Marvin Bagley, who is a star for the Sacramento Kings. Marcus averages, 12.5 points and 6.8 rebounds per contest, and inside will be Chris Austin. 6 FT. 9 £210 junior from Crowley, Louisiana Elite College JC Transfer. He's one of those guys really being pressed into action, The Arizona State will likely only have an eight man rotation today. The Trojan should have the full complement of players, a deep USC team for Andy Enfield to choose from, but he has been Consistent of late with his starting lineup. The head coach now in his eighth season, fourth and U. S. C s all time wins list looking for his 140th USC win here today, and he will start by sending out Taj et. The point guard. Et has played a lot of minutes for the Trojans. He's the only true point guard they have right now. With Ethan Anderson still out, We're hoping that Ethan will be able to return next week. He has missed six straight games. ET leads the team in threes, leads the team and free throw percentage. He's second in assists and scoring and he's Leading the team in scoring in Pac 12 play. Joining him in the back court will be Drew Peterson. Peterson has a lot of point guards skills, has more of a wing build. He has 19 rebounds over the last two games. He flirted with a triple double on Thursday night had 10 assists, tying his career high, also had eight rebounds and seven points to go with it. On the wing will be Isiah White. Isaiah had a season high 22 points versus Arizona member against Utah in the previous game. He had a season high in points with 12. So he upped up by 10 and went for 22 against the Wildcats in McKale, a big time game for Isaiah White. He made three threes in that game against Arizona. He had three threes all season, coming in. And he leads the team in steals as well inside for the Trojans. It's the Mobley brothers, Isaiah Mobley found out the other night. He was playing so well to those unfortunate he just could not stay on the floor was getting cold for a lot of loose about loose ball fouls on rebounding attempts. The action in the paint on Thursday, But Isaiah ever since the restart when USC had the long layoff between games, he seems to have refreshed his offensive game a little bit. He's 14 of 24 from the field since the restart. That's 58% before the break. He was at 41%, so he has been much more efficient since coming back from that covert break. And then, of course, inside for the Trojans. The seven footer, the freshman Evan Mobley had his third double double the other night 19 points and 11 rebounds. He's top three in the Pac 12 in rebounds, field goal percentage and blocks. He's averaging 2.7. Blocks per game, which is number one among all freshmen, and he is a national player of the year candidate. He made the wooden awards mid season top 25. So the headline match up for this one will be those two freshmen the scouts to be looking at Evan Mobley in Josh Christopher. But for us see the real advantages, Just the overall death and size of this Trojans team going up against a small Undermanned Arizona State squad should be plenty of advantages for USC. But We know Bobby Hurley will counter by trying to make this.
