"Mister Barr Coming up today stay tuned for our interview with CEO of McLaren racing Zach Brown that is straight ahead on the show but first let's dig into some of the top stories making headlines in the business of sports and probably one of the biggest ones Colin Kaepernick he's working out for the Las Vegas Raiders Damian does this mean that we're going to see Colin Kaepernick come back Well he's been trying to come back for some time I mean Michael it would be awesome to see him come back You know we all know the history there You know the grievance against the league I think that was settled for something under $10 million But you know he's been trying out for quite a bit of time you know I'd love to see him go back to the Raiders I mean they have David Carr obviously But if he gets some time behind center throw into a guy like devonte Adams I mean that could be very cool to watch You think this is good PR for the Raiders I definitely do especially after what we saw last week with Gruden So yeah no absolutely you know it's a little bit of PR there but he definitely can serve a role as maybe mentoring you know David Carr you know serving as a bit of a figurehead in the locker room and all that kind of stuff So you know there's a reason they brought him in I hope And it would be great to see him suit up and get behind that or again Can you imagine him coming if he does come back the sponsorship opportunities he's going to have Oh my goodness can you imagine I mean look Josh McDaniels knows that too right I mean this is dummies out there in Las Vegas They know the value of a dollar But I think you know in the same breath in Kaepernick's last season with San Francisco they didn't do so well I believe they had only one win that year So that has obviously a lot to do with the team itself But you know yeah I mean let's give it a shot I mean let's see if the man can still run the ball I mean he was you know not your typical pocket passer as you know Michael He used his feet quite a bit and he knew how to score touchdowns Now in being humble about trying to come back on the field he said look I'll come back as a backup quarterback Well in this case he may not have any choice right I think it's David Carr's team especially given the fact that they signed devonte Adams who is David Carr was his college quarterback The main reason he's there is because of David Carr but you know look this is the NFL anything happens Injuries abounds You know it would be very cool to see him take to the field again If the Raiders sign Kaepernick what are the pros and cons I mean look you know obviously from a media perspective there's a lot there that is good It's good for the franchise It's good for the team I think But most Vegas wants to win right They made they made some strides in the off season They had some really really big signings you know on both sides of the ball And so you know bringing in someone like Colin Kaepernick might add a little bit of something there you know a little bit of ghee You know I'm excited for the season We're getting close here I'm keep in mind Kaepernick's only 34 years old and I say only 34 years old because if you look at Tom Brady he is well into his 40s So Kaepernick if you go by those rules he still has a lot of time and his legs are fresh Yeah I think the real catch up for him is going to be getting accustomed to the offense you know shaking off the cobwebs in terms of how to read today's NFL defense Yeah it's going to be interesting Let's talk about soccer league Premier soccer league And the sale of Chelsea it's nearly complete And part of that puzzle now is because the Portugal government has ratified the takeover from Todd Bowles purchase Todd boley by the way owns a part of the Los Angeles Now I need to explain the reason why the Portuguese government was in on this is because Abramovich holds a passport for the European nation So that's why they had to give their okay on this as well Chelsea this has been a long going dramatic story Damien are we finally going to see now Chelsea in Todd bully's hands Well I think Michael the big one F was you know they needed to be assured the regulators that is that the proceeds from the sale were not going to recruit to Roman Abramovich right Due to the sanctions placed against them So you know I think they've gotten through that I think they've made the proper assurances there It looks like Todd Bowie is going to be the owner of a yet another EPL club and you look this is coming at a very interesting time I think for English premiere And the reason I say that is because you've had a lot of Americans the glazers for one come into the league in recent years and they're just not spending the way some of their peers from the Middle East for example are I mean we know that the deputy prime minister of the UAE owns man city and he spent a lot of money on that We know that Abramovich spent a lot of money on his team as well But if you look at operating profitability it's come off quite significantly And I think what I'm hearing is that Todd bowley wants to be a little bit more conservative with the purse strings than his predecessor And so however the fans react to that remains to be seen I think they're welcoming Todd right now but if they don't start to put some wins up you know things can change in a hurry Finally Damien we're moving to another topic but you know what it's all about because it is Sunday Sunday Sunday It is time for racing F one at Monaco the back end of it We've got it the Coca-Cola 600 for NASCAR and in between the Indy 500 Oh my goodness gracious And Roger Penske of course owns the track I'm looking forward to seeing butts in the.

"You know, forget the first stint in 1980, but when he arrived in 84, he was part of that building process and I feel like he, together with Barnard and Ron and again, you know, I think he was a key part of putting the building blocks in place for the future, which then center benefited from in some ways. I feel like, you know, in terms of his contribution to McLaren crossed over his period of time there had a bigger impact into making the cloud and great, which I think was for me the determining factor. It's a really hard one because you're absolutely right. If you look at 91, for example, very few other drivers would have won that championship in a McLeod. I think Senna won their championship despite not having the best car. And, you know, the great you could count to that with prostitute the same in 86. So it is a really it is a difficult one, I think, to split the difference. I sort of flip flop, but it ultimately, to me, I just feel like in terms of the long-term success of McLaren cross made a bigger contribution in terms of putting the foundations in place. I think that the strong case for that, I would say though in sort of evidence defense, there are two occasions where I think he's quite key well, actually you could say generally, he's a Honda man, right? So he kind of was really into engines and the Honda guys warned her and in fact to the point where I think Alan feels that he was probably sometimes a bit hard done by because of that strength for that relationship. So in 91, I completely agree with you, but it wasn't just the driving in the car, you know, he pushed really hard to make sure McLaren and Honda were pushing and that Hungarian Grand Prix pole position lap. And I think he even said it himself, this is because of the work we've done. It's not just send a special. He brought the point where McLaren Honda had actually responded to William dren in 1991. Everyone remembers that as being, oh, we'll say they've got those points on the board early and then Williams were faster, but actually McLaren did strike back and was a big part of that. And also remember they got their rear diffuser wrong on the 1990 car and had to do quite a lot of work on that. And I think it carried them a bit through that situation as well. To argue against myself, I'd rather doubt that I'd rather doubt that committing only in a race by race basis in 1993, rocking up on the Thursday and demanding a million quid a race. I think that probably didn't do an awful lot of good for McLaren's development or continuity. So I think it's always the end of his time there when he was even when he was delivering on track. He was when he was trying to worm his way into a William's seat in 92 and three. That probably didn't help McLaren. But yeah, as you said, you can argue either way. I think my favorite is Prost, but I still struggling to get away from it and being the number one in this list. What do you think then, Alex, do you have not, you've been very, very neutral so far. So where were you at? Fortunately, I was already deciding in my head that I was going to be so bold as to become judge in this argument. And I have to say having heard both of your positions. I think I would go with karoon. I think I would swap them around and have Prost ahead of center for two reasons. One, the building up into the McLaren CP team and the work that he did then. And also because we've argued that Fernando Alonso isn't in this list for being a destabilizing influence of having a negative impact on the team and Senna has that name and I'm sure there are. There is that as well with frost in terms of the collisions and the fact that it boiled over at times. But just for those two reasons, I'd swap them around. And as you know, I'd like to annoy you. Well, no, to be honest, I was thinking I've been, so in the Ferrari one, I was argued out of Kim your argument was on my list and argued out in favor of Jacky ickx, which again I'm very happy about that on a personal note. I'm certainly not going to be too upset about Alan bean coming out ahead of ahead of it. And I probably wouldn't sort them around if I rewriting it, but I'm perfectly happy with the outcome of your decision. I respect your position. Well, you've got the opportunity to if you're going to rewrite it for having Niki lauder had Lewis Hamilton. Well, we need to give it a while. Let's see, let's give it two or three years and see if Lando Norris can get some obviously he signed up for a million years now with McLaren, isn't it? That's just been recently announced. So, you know, from a car and can keep coming and bring all their facilities together and he can start winning races and world championships. Maybe he'll force a rewrite of the feature anyway. Indeed, indeed, well, thank you very much. That's our podcast for today. Thank you, Kev. Thank you, karoon. Now if that animal scores, thank you to the listeners for listening along, but just before we do go, karuna's written the cover feature that will be leading auto sport magazine. I don't know when exactly the podcast will be released, but it's.

"Conversely, Mika feels, I think, so deeply loyal to McLaren even today. When you talk to me, you know, when you talk to him about the cloud and you're talking about Ron, you see him almost light up, you know, there's like there's genuine love and admiration for everything that McLaren and Ron did for him in that era. So to me, he is, he is in the same way we've talked previously about Manson being a Williams driver through and through. Mika, to me, is a McLaren person through and through. And having him at number three was I toyed with having louder number three, but in the end, I think the fact that Mika was so devastatingly fast and helped to rebuild McLaren from that period of you think of between 92 and 95 they had Ford Peugeot Honda Ford Pelosi and Mercedes, they went through full range of manufacturers in four seasons. That's unbelievably disruptive for any team. And throw in a test for the Chrysler Lamborghini in the middle. You know, that's 5 different engines in the back of the race car in four years. And Mika was a constant in a lot of that era, you know, from 93 onwards. And I think he then, from 97, really when the team started to get their get their act together, he was there at the forefront, and the championship campaigns he put together in 98, particularly, but also in 99. And I think 2000, he drove a great season in 2000, he got beaten by Michael, but I thought it was a really, really good championship battle. He put together arguably better than the one he had put together in 99, I think. So yeah, I'm not going to argue in the end with Nick at number three. Well, we arrived at the point in the podcast where just before we get to the top two, we need to consider if there are any drivers that aren't on the list that could have made the cut. So Kev, were there any particular ones? And I guess my main question is, in terms of impact on the team, why isn't Bruce McLaren in the top ten McLaren drivers? Yeah, that was going to be the name that I was going to mention first. Ultimately, I just don't think he was really quite a good enough racing driver. And I mean that with the greatest respect because obviously he did win grown pretty did take McLaren's first world championship Grand Prix victory in. He is the, it's called McLaren, right? So you can't really argue very much is impact on the team, but it was really, I think I was leaning towards the on track stuff, and I think I don't think either Bruce would have said that he was the fastest driver of the best driver of his generation. So yeah, he's almost if you're doing sort of McLaren's most important figures. He's number one on that list, isn't he? But in terms of purely focusing more towards the drivers, then he didn't make the cut for me. Similar reason for Denny Holm, not making it as well. I think probably John Watson deserves a bit of a honorable mention as well. So yeah, that's what I mean. There were quite a few candidates for getting on the getting on the list, but one way or another. They didn't quite have the combination of success or impact that these ten had. Is there anyone that you think we should have mentioned? I'd kind of forgotten Denny Han but now you mentioned you're probably right. I think yeah, Bruce was the one that I was thinking of. But I think you're justification is probably valid. Fernando is a funny one, isn't it? Where do you love that? But I think ultimately, you know, it was so, so I think the negatives outweigh the positives of Fernando's time at McLaren both stints really, you know, brilliant. Even today, if people ask me, you know, who's your favorite driver, the greater I often say Fernando Alonso, because I love watching the guy, I love watching the on board with him. I love watching the first laps. He's just an unbelievable racing driver. But in terms of what he brought to McLeod, and I think the negatives of where the positives. Absolutely. Well, let's come on to the top two in Kev's list. Starting at number two, Alain Prost. Jo form McLaren in 1980 and then between 1984 and 1989, it started a 107 races one 30 times and took three titles, 1985 and 1986 and 1989, and at number one, I think everybody's really worked out by now. Ayrton Senna, Joe fort McLaren between 1988 and 1993, started 96 F one races for the team one 35 times, also took three titles, 1998, 1990 and 1991. So I'm going to have a witty had some stick about this, which I think is probably predictable given that center and probably polarized F one fans in a way that well, I don't think we've seen before, actually. We'll see there have been some great rivalries prior to that, but I think that that was social media being around then it would have been devastating, I should imagine between those two. And my personal preference is that I'm a Prost fan, right? The way Prost went racing is the way that I'd want to see bass and drivers go. For me, senator falls into the Verstappen Schumacher camp of where's the line. I really struggled with this one. And in the end, there were a couple of things that pushed me towards putting center ahead of Prost. One was one was the sheer numbers in terms of he took more wins and more polls. But more than that, the two things were won. I can think of when I think of proscribed moments. I think of him in other things as well. You know, I think of him Ferrari and even South African Grand Prix for Renault and he's just a great driver. Is if I think of sen and it's just got to be that yellow helmet in a Marlboro McLaren. I know you obviously did great things at lotus, but he used a McLaren driver and the deciding factor for me was that Prost was the one that left the team when the teammates the situation did get toxic between the two of them and in the end for whatever what happens behind the scenes McLaren went for went for it and so he kind of won their intra team contest even though I'll see all and then went on and was very much a thorn in his side elsewhere. So that was kind of the reason I put it in the head, but it was, as I say, I'm more of a Prost man than the center man, but I just thought for McLaren, Senna's Senna's numbers and impacts are just too big for me to ignore. But I'm very I'm very interested to hear karun's counter counter position. I think my counter arguing goes back to impact on the team and the era they would, you know, I feel like center of arrived at mccloud and when they were already well and truly established as the best team on the grid in 88, clearly with that car, they were the best team on the grid..

"First proper proper driver development program that delivered a world champion, you know, and really built this driver all the way through. So I think in that respect, a huge part of the mccloud and story, but so much of Lewis careers come from his Mercedes era. I think people forget that McLaren era that he had sometimes, which is a shame because he drove some great races. And I think, as I said, 2007 for me is the gold standard of rookie seasons in F one. It was amazing right from the office with that move at the first corner in Melbourne. But let's come onto the driver. We've got at number three. I think corinne think you judging by what you said earlier, you agree with this ranking. It's Mika hakkinen at third in the list. He showed for McLaren between 1993 and 2001 started a 131 races, one 20 times, and of course two world titles, 1998 and 1999, Kev, why have you picked hacking in at number three? Before we go on to that, I just wanted to reveal that I've done something that I don't know I've ever done in one of these top ten debates before. I think Korean made such a good case for Niki Lauda I've actually put a little note to swap them around. So maybe there's an interesting version of that automate normally, normally it's good to be back. And you think, oh, you could go either way, but that one was such a strong argument that I think that was a great shout. So I should be a lawyer. We should bring in titch marsh into the next. Yeah, I mean, make hack and say, we want to double world champion at McLaren after it after a run of that sort of difficult period they had after Senna left, the rebuilding, if you look at in terms of McLaren wins, I won't give away the top two. I think that's a fairly obvious, but it's Lewis Hamilton on 21, a meeter on 20, so right up there, but he did win two, two titles. And I think in relationship with Ron Dennis, after he was almost killed in a killed in a McLaren, I think that there was a special bond there. In fact, David Coulthard was talked about this as it almost felt like this at the gooseberry in that situation didn't feel quite the same level of support. So I think for me, Mika is very much a McLaren driver. And for that period, I should have won race. He should have won races before her F 97, of course. So it's a bit unfortunate to have to wait that long, but when he did, he reeled off some superb victories to the opportunities that were given to him. 99 was a bit shaky, should have won that championship more easily after Schumacher broke his leg, but I think that was as much down to silly things happening like wheels falling off and things rather than on getting punted around by D.C. and Austria and that sort of thing rather than anything that Mika was doing. Delivered two world titles and even in his last year where you'd say perhaps he's motivation was waning a bit and he wasn't quite the hacker and of old. He still delivered two of the fantastic victories. And the one at Indianapolis, the tyre technicians and the team, the lap times he was able to do with the tyres in the condition they were in. And they said it was just unbelievable. So, you know, I don't think it was a complete driver of some of the other people on this list and not even as complete as drivers say there is Hamilton that we've just talked about, but for that period of time he was the guy and he was going up against Marcus Schumacher and Ferrari one of the great combinations in F one history and came out on top twice. So yeah, he had to be high up this list. I think it back to an interview that I saw Ron Dennis Stuart Martin brumlow on sky. I think it must have been 2014 or 15. And Martin asked him about which mccloud and driver of the exact word on paraphrasing, but was your favorite or would be the one that you'd resign and Ron to quite quickly actually answer Mika hakanen. And I think it was because he was just uncomplicated and unbelievably fast. I think you have to think of that time where he arrived in a cloud, right? They've gone through the process era. And 93, although they weren't fighting for the championship. I think it was quite a fractious year in terms of sinner deciding whether he wanted to drive, not try showing up the last minute last minute at race weekends. Getting paid a million arrays reportly to drive that season and I think it was all quite fractious for Ron and for the team at that stage. And then you suddenly had this Finn arrived at Portugal 93 who was quite minimalist in what he said, very, very quick in the car. I had some shunts, made some errors, et cetera, but he showed that he had the speed to be a team leader. And also, I think, offered a period of calm, which McLeod needed after the process era. So I think they really appreciated the loyalty. And conversely, Mika feels, I think, so deeply loyal to McLaren even today. When you talk to me, you know, when you.

"So to me, he filled, he filled that whole that Emerson left because anything caught mccloud and completely by surprise. I mean, who leaves a world championship winning team to go join a team started by your brother? I mean, it's just a bizarre thing to do. He's almost sort of Jacques Villeneuve, isn't it? When he went to be AR and neither of those moves worked out particularly well for him Jacques and so yeah, I think James filled that whole very nicely and made my child in a tidy contender and it was obviously a controversial year where it's qualifications and all sorts of bits and pieces. And he was very quick in 77, those four positions early on very, very competitive. But ultimately I think in terms of the impact he had on McLaren as a team, I think I put him behind Emerson on this list. Well, moving on to the driver at number 5, he talks about him, just then, Niki Lauda, drove from McLaren between 1982 and 1985, started 58 times for the team, won 8 races and won the 1984 title. Kev, obviously we discussed a little bit louder that was climate Ferrari, but why is it number 5 in this top ten McLaren drivers list? Yeah, it's quite difficult to play because I guess it probably depends on your age as to whether you think immediately Ferrari or McLaren conversely I kind of feel that loud as a Ferrari driver. But he's higher on the Ferrari list as we know. But I put him in a pretty far. I mean, I don't think he should have won the 84 world title. I think pros was better that year and should have been champion but was unfortunate, but he did get that title just discussed that with James something. He did get the job done. But the reason he's that high actually is because of his efforts and work to get the tag the tag Porsche turbo sorted. I basically bought going behind John Barnard's back at the end of 83 and going. We have to run this car now and get the get the bugs out and make sure it works. And he drove the McLaren tag sort of prototype, if you like at the end of the 83 season and showed that it was quick and that it did have bugs that needed ironing out and of course he was right. He'd effectually contributed to making that package brilliant for 84 and you can slightly see why he would have been a bit knocked when suddenly he's got a land process as his teammate instead of John Watson, but then they actually worked well together. So it was good for the team. It was one of those rare occasions in McLaren 1980s history where you had the two superstars in the team and it did work. And they won the constructors and drivers titles, both years, 85 was quite poor. You'd fall away quite a lot then Andy also attracted a lot of the bad luck, so nowhere in the points. But I think he's contribution to go to rood's point. I think he's contribution to that. So the Ron Dennis super team rise is kind of what gets him into that spot. To me, louder actually, I was toying with having louder either third or fourth and ultimately I had him fought on my list. Because to Kevin's point, he won the world championship in 84, arguably should have won that season. If Monica wasn't half points, for example. But I think. You know, the loudest impact on the cloud and actually was outside the car was much, much bigger. You know, Ron Dennis worked very hard to get him back out of the time and I don't know if you guys have read John Barnard's book or the book about John Barnard called the perfect car. For anyone listening, if you haven't read it, strongly strongly recommend is one of the best books I've read in the last three, four years on Formula One. And he really highlights what a key role lauder played at mccloud and in terms of getting the tag Porsche steel done earlier getting the engine developed quicker and onto the car. Earlier than even Barnard wanted to, and he was obviously technical director at the time. Lauda was massively influential with Marlborough and with John Hogan and keeping that part of the commitment to the mcclaren program and he was a huge part of the team. So if you think of all the success, McLeod have had, it all, to me, so much of it goes back to 82 83 and what louder built as this McLeod super team as Kev just described it. I think that. Quartet of Barnard Dennis louder, John Hogan, they set McLeod and up for everything that they achieved through the 80s and 90s into the 2000s really. And I think that key between 82 and 84 can not be underestimated and allowed us to and that can not be underestimated. So in terms of impact, yes, he won perhaps less world championships than some of the other drivers on this list for McLaren, but in terms of impact, I think he had a huge, huge role to play. So to me, I was toying with third or fourth, but ultimately I'm going to go with fourth for loudoun at least. Okay, well let's go to the driver that Kevin's got a number four. It's Lewis Hamilton. Drove for McLaren very famously, of course, between 2007 and 2012, started a 110 races one 21 times and of course took the 2008 world title. Kev, why have you got Hamilton at number four? Well, greatest season in rookie F one history is a rookie or an in 2007. And I don't think he's really ever been, it's never really been suggested that he was into the political games that actually created the problems at McLaren. And I think really his main contributions that was just being really fast. And not really wanting to sit behind Alonso. Which was then a situation that was mismanaged, but I don't think that's Lewis's fault obviously then became team leader and world champion the following year. Now he did he did have a wobble as we mentioned earlier on there's no doubt in that sort of particularly in 2011 yeah, I think he wasn't in a good head space. But I think he bounced back in 2012. I think he was superb and although I think that McLaren's decline after 2012 is down to lots of factors, some of which have been around for quite a while. You can't help but say that after he left the team was the team was a lesser, a lesser thing and has had a long time to rebuild. So delivered a world championship. And I think apart from that blitz delivered on what the car was, what was capable of more often than not. And if you're bringing louder up, are you shuffling Hamilton down or are you elevating him even further? I am, I'm swapping louder for Lewis, I think. You know, I think just yes, Louis arrived at a time as a rookie and it was quite rare if I'm not mistaken for McLaren to sign a rookie at that stage. Obviously, they'd had Andretti before Mika had already been at lotus and things like that, but and the Andretti experiment hadn't really worked out. Let's ignore the cameo from Jan Magnussen, but apart from that. In general, McLaren we used to having established drivers really Kimi was as close to rookie as they had. So for them to get a complete rookie in and then I, you know, I've said a lot of this winter actually and for me Lewis's rookie season in F one 2007 will go down as probably the greatest rookie season in F one history. I think what he did in 2007 was unbelievable. I think the team probably could have helped him a bit more to be world champion in that year, really. China being the obvious one, but I think across the board, so to me he was very much a part of he was obviously a part of the furniture at McLaren, but he was a big field good story for McLeod as well. They take in this kid from counting and made him basically made him world champion across a 15 year period, and that's a remarkable story. If you look at driver development programs, that was probably the first proper proper driver development program that delivered a world champion, you know, and really built this driver all the way through. So I think in that respect, a huge part of the mccloud and story, but so much of Lewis careers come from his Mercedes era..
"mclaren" Discussed on The Autosport Podcast
"I see the field, right? So he was fantastically fast at McLaren, didn't quite get the job done now. Some of that was obviously due to the car reliability, but they're also things like flat spotting the tire at the Nurburgring. I know that he was very unfortunate. Last year that longer brilliant, but really it was being put under pressure by someone in a car that wasn't as fast. And I think Fernando Alonso was the right person to win the 2005 titles. I think Kimi was faster Fernando was better, essentially. And yeah, it just never caught a distinct quite come together for him. And of course, the last season that he had there actually was the least one of the least competitive for McLaren, although of course, again, the same with the Jensen argument you can really blame Kimmy for that as such, but there are people at mccarran say he's just his feedback just wasn't enough. There wasn't he might tell you something once, but he wouldn't wear a mask Schumacher or even probably a Lewis would make absolutely damn sure that you knew what he wanted. Kimmy was like, well, if you haven't, if you haven't done that, you haven't done it. It's a spectacularly fast. I think it really sums up his career. Spectacularly vast brilliant on his day but didn't make the most of the skills and talent that he obviously had. I think between 2003 and 2005, there was no faster driver on the planet than Kimi, honestly, I think that the Michelin tyre in that era really suited his driving style. He just sort of seamlessly filled the hole that Mika left at McLaren. He arrived and the 2002 Ferrari was a dominant car, but he was already there fighting. 2003, he was in the old car in that year and was a contender for the championship all the way until the end. So I think, yeah, I think he did fulfill his potential in Formula One across his career. No. Let's get just mentioned. But I think the way we've ranked him is probably right. You know, he won races, he won, he made McLeod in a tidy contender. Again. And yeah, filled the whole very nicely that Mika left, I think. Indeed, well, coming is one of the, by the way, I should point out this is one of the two along with Mika. So it's a two fins that I actually agree with carelessly. I argue with everything else. Okay. Okay, well, I'm sure we're coming on to make hacking and very soon. But before we do, let's get to drive at number 7. Who is not hacking them? We shocked to discover. It's Emerson Fittipaldi. Joe McLaren between 1975 and 1970 one. Joey for McLaren in 1974 and 1975 started 28 races one 5 times and took the 1974 title Kevin's 50 pound eat at number 7. So he's there because, as you say, he was a he took the world after his first year at McLaren 74 and he was sort of a contender, if anyone was a contender against Niki Lauda Ferrari in 75, it was probably Emerson. Why isn't he higher? I think he basically inherited what was essentially the quickest car in F one that hadn't had a top line in it yet. Jodie Sheik was too raw Danny Holmes never the fastest F one driver and Peter revson wasn't the top notch girl. I think if McLaren had had a front run in 73, they would have been able to bake tear and lotus. They got a FrontRunner in Emerson and he duly delivered the duty to deliver the tartly wasn't the fastest driver that year Nicola and Ferrari should probably have won the championship. We weren't reliable enough. So he did a he did deliver, but I don't think he was quite so significant to McLaren as some of the drivers on this. I mean, it's significant in history, because it's the first one, so he gets bonus points for that. But yeah, and then he left, he made decision to leave in 75, which left them in a little bit of a hole as well. To go and find his brother's team. So yeah, just there for a couple of years, did get a championship, but I don't think as impressively as the other people on this list, but I'm looking forward to hearing what karun, what career he thinks of that one. Yeah, karoun, I'm guessing you'd have had Fittipaldi higher up the list. I had Fittipaldi ahead of I basically swapped the next two, so I had it in my head of who Kev's got a number 6 because I think there was. Connect if I'm wrong, but he was quite instrumental, wasn't he and making sure the Marlboro backing went to McLaren. And I think when I think back to my reasoning for putting a list together like this, it's going to be about impact for the team. And that Marlboro backing was essential for McLaren success for the next two and a half decades, probably. So I think a, that was fairly instrumental, be arrived, and one of the world's championship very quickly. And then finish second in the following year, you know, is only there for a couple of years and then finished first and second in the world championship. So that's yeah, so to me, I would have Emerson, one place higher up than where I kept going. Well, let's go on to that driver at number 6. It's James Hunt. Drove for McLaren between 1976 and 1978, started 49 races one 9 times and of course took the 1976 title. So Kev, we know where karoon would have had James Hunt. Why do you got them at number 6? Yeah, I mean, the thing that it is a very good point is kind of on the sponsorship side. In terms of the team side, I think hunt was just plain faster. I think he was the first driver to really show how quickly M 23 was. And yes, he was fortunate to win the world championship course because of what happened to Niki Lauda Ferrari louder and for I should have won that title as well. But I think he did incredible things with that with that car. I think in some ways he drive even better for McLaren the following year, but they didn't have the rubber green. They were a bit unlucky. Hunt Andretti and John Watson all should have won more races and being higher up in the championship in 77, but had various reliability problems. So I just think he made more of his time at McLaren than Emerson did. And if you also think that Fittipaldi joined as a world champion, there was a certain level of experience and expectation that he had, which hunt arcade one one Grand Prix, but I don't think anyone's yet convinced he was a well titled contender. So a little bit like the khaki Rosberg situation at Williams that 82 was kind of thrust into a situation, absolutely grabbed it with both hands. So I guess I put him ahead of Emerson on the basis so I think he's peaks at McLaren were higher, but it is hard to argue with the bringing into decades of sponsorship that Emma was key to. What's your thoughts on James Hunt in his place in F one history? If you'd have him on further spot down the list, now one of the extremely famous driver from the past because of it's even it's even gone as far as Hollywood with the excellent film rush. Yeah, but that's not what we're talking about here. And I think, you know, I think ultimately he won, of course he won the world championship and he was a very, very fast racing driver. There's no question about his speed. Would he have been one champion if loda had a crash at the Nurburgring? I think Kev's answer that question already..
"mclaren" Discussed on The Autosport Podcast
"And instead because he was more willing to sort of get stuck in, indeed, well, let's come on to the driver at number 9 on this list. It's 2009 world champion Jenson Button. Of course, after immediately winning that title with Braun and then became Mercedes, he left to join McLaren in 2010, raced there until the end of 2016, then a wonderful appearance at Monaco in place of Fernando Alonso doing the Indy 500, start a 136 times for McLaren one 8 times, of course, impressed everybody by winning sort of almost art from the off in 2010. Kev, why have you got a button at number 9? So there were three drivers finding out for these two slots. And actually until the very last minute I had D.C. at 9. And for me it came down between Jensen and Fernando because I think in terms of what they delivered in the car Fernando Alonso is absolutely astonishing at McLaren and Ferrari and he's very high on my list of I think probably he's one that drives you the biggest disparity between how great he was in his record of titles, which sounds ridiculous for a double world champion, but he should have had more. But he's also very divisive character and obviously the McLaren McLaren neither McLaren era went quite right for him obviously there was the thing that Lewis in 2007 spygate is involved in that and then of course he upset hundred a little bit. Sometimes justifiably when he was there the second time. So when we did a I did have a little bit of an office straw poll on that one and I think the decisions that Alonso was just a bit too divisive to make it into the list. The reason that Jensen gets ahead of David on this pot for two reasons really one is interesting what Korean thinks of this, but certainly people I spoke to at McLaren say, it's basically the reason that Jensen and Lewis worked together so well at the team was down to Jensen it's just still a bit still a bit young and a bit everyone McLaren weren't very good at managing, managing drivers, I think that's been that was certainly the historical problem and it was Jensen that kind of did a slightly older brother thing of we've got different approaches, but we can work. And they were really good team. The only reason they didn't win a world championship while those two were together was because McLaren couldn't quite deliver a combined enough reliability with enough speed against red born Sebastian Vettel. I think Jensen's 2011 season was absolutely superb probably on a pars not better than his world championship winning campaign with Braun as well. And I would argue probably better than any single season that D.C. managed as well. So very nip and top between the two of them. They both are there a long time. Both had some brilliant moments, but Jensen outscored those Hamilton across the three years they were together in terms of points and there's not a lot of people that could say that. Well Kareem, we know you have shuffled button one spot down on the list the number ten. But yeah, what are your what's your assessment of his impact at McLaren and also his impact sort of as a Formula One driver generally? Now, you raced against him in 2010 the first year of his time at McLaren. So yeah, what do you think of Jensen and his place in Formula One history? I think Jensen is a funny career, isn't it? Because I go back to 2000 and he arrived in F one. And, you know, it was like, oh my God, this is the Michael Schumacher beater. He's arrived in the Formula One, unbelievable qualifying at spa brilliant race at hockenheim, Brazil, you know, just this is it. And then it kind of lost momentum in the benetton Renault years. I think it took a little bit of fizz out of him, and then 2004, he had a great year at BAR, but then they weren't ever quite there. Then you had the disasters of 2007 and 8. And you go to 2008 and it's like, we've had Jensen's had nearly a decade in F one. We've never seen him have that real championship opportunity that, you know, we all thought his talent deserved back in 2000. And then he got that in 2009 and I think when he went to McLaren, obviously a lot of eyebrows were raised, a lot of people wondered just how he'd stack up against Lewis. And I think actually looking back, Lewis had a bit of a wobbly period with variations, mainly with Philippe Massa team, didn't that period. But I think looking back, even though, is funny how, although we know the stats, I think people are always slightly surprised to hear that Jensen outscored Lewis in terms of the number of points in that era. Maybe it's because of just the level of success that Louis has had since then. But I think Jensen was was good for McLaren at that time. You know, when after 2007, they'd had a couple of years with high key and he was never really close enough to push Lewis in 2008 9. I think they, McLeod and prior to that, have always tried to have two number one drivers, basically having that they've tried to have two drivers who are right up at the top and then obviously mathematically have won the championship challenge and they favored him, but they generally have that and finally when Jensen joined in 2010 and started winning very quickly, I think it was Melbourne and in China, wasn't it? He won early on in that first season and before you know it, he's ahead of losing the championship and he was a title contender all the way through that year. And he had drawn some brilliant races. I'm thinking of spa 2012, I think it was where he was just unbelievable Suzuka is winning against Vettel and the dominant Red Bull of Suzuka. Incredible performances. So he had some really big highs, none bigger than Canada, 2011, where we came from the back to win. But it was also at a time where they came up against the Red Bull juggernaut, really. And I think when they had some opportunities in 2010 and 12, they were never really tidy contenders in the same ways that they were before. But I think he had a very calming influence fairly professional is the word that gets used a lot by people at McLaren to work with him and I think he was generally very well liked. I think also and this sounds ridiculous given that he arrived as raining world champion. I think he's McLaren is sort of add an extra sort of credibility to him as a driver. Because he had such that interesting first decade in F one, which culminated in a shock title and he then went right well, I'm going to go and join McLaren and be against the guy that everyone thinks she's probably the fastest driver in F one. And I must admit, oh it's kind of a Jenson fan at the time and I was one of those people raising my eyebrows. Are you sure, Jensen? I'm not sure that's a great idea going alongside Lewis, but you know, he showed that he was top top quality. So I think it added to although he didn't add a title, I think it added to his standing in the sport his time at his time McLaren. He could argue, obviously, that McLaren was less competitive by the time that he left than when he joined, but I don't think that you would say that that was Jensen's fault. I don't think there's a lot you could do about someone that developments that went on there. No, definitely not. Definitely not. Well, let's move on to the driver at number 8 in the list. It's Kimi Räikkönen. Drove for McLaren between 2002 and 2006 went on the following year to win the world title with Ferrari, started 87 races one 9 times, but didn't take a title at McLaren. Now Kev, it's interesting because when we talked about Kimi raik in his place in the top ten Ferrari drivers podcast, we said, well, actually, his better years is more impressive years had just come when he came from McLaren. So why have you got him a number 8 on this list? Well, I mean, I think if it was on raw speed, he would probably hire up the list. I think he was absolutely phenomenally quick at times at McLaren. I mean, everyone thinks of 2005 is the obvious one, but actually there were examples outside of that. I mean, these win at spa against Schumacher 2004, that dominant F 2004 was I think one of his Gracie's drives and against someone who knew out of new outer race right, whereas he's Suzuka win, which is more famous. And I did put number one in the rocket and top ten drives this, but physical I think there are ten drivers on the grid who would have not defended thin air quite so early in those last couple of laps, but it was still an incredible show..
"mclaren" Discussed on The Autosport Podcast
"We're discussing a squad that has gone 14 years without securing a title, but did return to winning ways after a long dry spell last year, and it's McLaren. But before we dive into ranking our top ten McLaren F one races, let's ask the person who's come up with a list who has done the ranking to explain just how he puts these lists together. Kev, I mean, yeah, what is the method rather than the reasoning behind you do this? What is the what is the way you is it all stats based? Is it like reading all autos for what reports, books, how do you do it? Normally I sort of have a brainstorming session where I just write down the drivers I think would be the rough order of just based on being old and having read loads of stuff and all that sort of thing. And then I do the proper job and go and look at the stats that cause some races, they've got people have said, try and sort of get into a bit more detail. The idea of this isn't Kevin Turner's ten favorite McLaren drivers. This is supposed to be the drivers who won the most at McLaren also contributed the most, that's kind of the main crisis. It's what they did at the team. So that's the outside wins and titles, but also some of the background stuff as well. What they contributed to the constructors championship as well. So some drivers are very successful but can be selfish. So yeah, it's quite a difficult set of criteria to balance really. But there's always a problem with every top ten list. So it's just a matter of what flavor it is. Indeed in the listeners, you may have spotted I was so keen to ask Kev to present that little bit of nugget in a different way. I completely got to introduce him, which I suppose chief editor Kevin Turner. But anyway, we've heard from you now, Kev, let's get into introducing our second guest once again, we've got a very special guest on this podcast. You heard him in the last episode in this series discussing Williams top ten F one races. He's a former F one racer himself and current Sky Sports pundit, his career in Chandra, green, welcome back. How did you find going through the top ten Williams drivers on our last episode? That was relatively straightforward. I don't think we argued too much about that. The McLaren list is a bit is a bit trickier, I think. We're looking at a slightly longer period of time to do an extra decade. And there's a yeah, there's a few in there that I argue with Kev's list. So I'll look forward to getting stuck in. Yeah, we were promised, promised fireworks in the last episode, so let's see what comes to the bus this time around. It is interesting to say that because this was much harder to put together as well in the first place. I mean, just give you an idea of McLaren has had 20 winners in the world championship and Williams had 16. So that was it was a bigger starting list, so it was and some of the audio. There's one obvious person not in the list too, I suspect karoon wants to talk about, but yeah, this is one of the hardest of the list of the series to do, I would say. And Dave, well, as ever, for each century, Kev, you're going to explain why that driver is in that slot and then career it's up to you to examine Kev's cave's reasoning and justifications to put in the drivers there. And of course, as we go through the list, then I'm sure there'll be a certain time as well. We'll assess the drivers that didn't quite make the cuts. But starting off at number ten, it's another former F one driver turned very successful broadcaster. It's David Coulthard. Drove from McLaren between 1996 and 2004 started a 150 F one races for the team, one 12 times, of course, didn't take the title. So Kev, why it's called hard at number ten. So partly it's longevity, contribution over 9, 9 seasons, and yes, I mean, there were times there were times where you would say was effectively number two. I mean, he's never officially that, but he was a step behind Mika hakkinen when he was absolute peak, but not far behind. There were certain tracks where he was just quicker and he was never usually that far behind, but over the course of a season, he tended not to lead the charge. When he did lead the charge, I think in 2001 he was brilliant there, but there was two things that happened. One, he was a bit unlucky into Ferrari was in the Ferrari Schumacher era was properly up and running then and was probably a bit too far out of reach to be beaten, so it's arguably his best season at McLaren, but by then the opportunity had perhaps as perhaps sort of ebbed away. So he didn't get a championship, but he did contribute to constructors titles. A long-term team player, I don't think McLaren is in the business of employing someone for nearly a decade if they're not really hardworking contributor to the team. So that's what gets him on the list, really. And karoo, how do you feel about David coffer being at number ten? Would you have had him any higher or is there another driver you would substitute in for his spot, which is always the contentious one at number ten? I would actually swap D.C. with who Kev's got in 9th place. I think for all the reasons you've justified D.C.'s role and name at McLaren on this list, I think he deserves another place higher up because if you look at the era that he arrive at McLeod, they were just coming out of the dold on Susan. It was 96 was a second year of the Mercedes partnership. They were very much in that phase of rebuilding and he'd come from Williams who were the benchmark team at that time. Williams were in the middle of winning is it 5 constructors world championships in a row? Between 92 and 97. So they were not at all in D.C.. It obviously been their test driver and race driver. So I think he arrived at McLeod and at a time where it was taking a step back down the grid although very quickly, of course, once new year arrived and the rules changed to the narrow track proof times, because in 98, it looked like a genius move for him to go to McLeod. And but they were at a time when there was a fierce rivalry against Ferrari. McLaren, this is Ferrari at that time, was a proper battle when you look at 98 till 2001, really. I think was and D.C. was a really integral part of that team. You just need to look back at some of the old older sports and you look at the number of days of testing that they were all doing and pounding around and around and I think David played a big part in keeping that whole team competitive in that championship battle. I think also which I forgot to mention. I think that he was better at racing wheels with Schumacher earlier than hacken was. I know everyone remembers the Belgian Grand Prix pass, right? But before that, they were quite a few instances of Mika just sort of falling out the way or fairly lamely racing against Michael. Whereas David really got stuck in. I mean, obviously the French Grand Prix that he pictures the race of his life when we spoke to him a year or two ago. That was a proper wheel to wheel battle there and obviously hand gestures and all the rest of it. I think he was quite a good if Alan Prost was close to it in center overall in the list of greats. Mance was the one you'd want to put into the wheel to wheel fight against center. Kind of a little bit like this. I think Mika was close to Marco overall, being a will to fight certainly early on at McLaren. You probably throw D.C..

"In 2022. But before we get to today's interview, we're going to kick off the show with a marketing minute, where we invite a friend of the martech podcast to help us answer a listener question in 60 seconds or less. Here for today's marketing minute is will Barron, who's the managing director of salesman dot org and the host of the salesman podcast, which is the world's most downloaded B2B sales podcast and a fellow member of the HubSpot podcast network in his podcast will help sales professionals learn how to find buyers and win business in a modern effective and ethical way. And will has been kind enough to answer a question from Katie rose, who is the director of sales enablement at spark post, which is one of the world's biggest email senders. Katie asked, what is the best way to scale and enablement program for B2B SaaS companies with limited resources? Okay, here's well's answer. Hey Kati and thanks for the question. There are three things to consider when scaling a sales enablement program. Your influence, the software that you're using and your internal insights. So let me explain. Your influence because sometimes in the corporate world, rightly or wrongly, return on investment, case studies and data is just not enough to break through the status quo and to get things moving. And so I would focus just as hard on adding value and building relationships with your internal stakeholders as I would on the sales enablement itself. Next software tools. Now, they're all pretty similar. It's the resources within the software that's going to impact the numbers simpler sales movement software that gets used is way way better than complex software that no one bothered with. And finally, your internal insights. If you've got sales reps exceeding the sales quote right now, they should be defining what your sales enablement looks like. Don't give your sales team what you think that they need, give your top reps whatever they want and give everyone else what they require to become a top sales rep. Thanks, will.

All right, here's my conversation with Michael McLaren, the global CEO of merkle B2B. Michael, welcome to the podcast. Thanks Ben. It's great to be here. I'm excited to have you on the show and to talk a little bit about B2B marketing this week. We're going to start off with who's in charge. We're kind of getting out of the area where the old gray hairs are running the marketing department. The kids are taking over. The millennials. That's very true. It's not your grandfather's B2B. That's for sure. We're seeing the increasing influence of millennials and gen zs in the B2B buying process. And they're there both in terms of influence, but increasingly in terms of buying power. So they're becoming increasingly significant. There's an increasing importance to their role in the B2B purchase process. I remember when I was 24 years older, so I was living in Dallas, Texas. I was working a low to entry level job and me and all my Friends were scraping together our shekels and pesos to try to buy some light beer and have a good time on the weekend and this is back when people used to read magazines and I remember there was a Time Magazine cover that said millennials, when will they grow up and it was a 25 year old man in his childhood bedroom with his mom tucking him into bed with the picture on the front of the magazine. And I was so offended because I think I'm on the border of millennial myths. I was born in 1980, not to date myself, but I'm going to date myself. And the idea was we were the generation of millennials where the generation that wouldn't grow up that wouldn't leave mom and dad's house. Now nobody mentioned that we were riddled with college debt and that the job market wasn't great when we graduated. Now all of a sudden, hey, we're in charge of B2B businesses. So are you finding that people are taking their zoom conferences from their childhood bedroom at their parents place or do the average millennial move out, get some roommates? What are millennials stand these days? How do you think about the millennial buyer? Well, I think they're very savvy, very smart and very demanding. I think the data is showing us that it's a cohort that brings new expectations to their engagements with B2B brands. And a lot of those expectations are being informed by their experiences as consumers. This is a generation who largely grew up with all the digital tools at their disposal. Certainly from teenage John. So they've been used to a mobile first digital first kind of immersive experience that they have with different brands. And I think they're bringing that expectation with them increasingly to how they want to do business as they move through their careers. So that's one big change. And I think it's a significant difference. The idea of a digital native versus a digital migrant, someone who's immersed in all the tools and they're familiar with navigating digital ecosystems, they're familiar with searching for content, they're familiar with screening things that are not relevant to them and very frankly adept at it. So I think it's a really interesting audience. There's certainly not slackers, which is often how they've been painted but in the media. That's definitely not our experience there. Savvy smart, and quite sophisticated. Mom, if you're listening, we're not slackers. We're savvy. We're smart. We're sophisticated. All words that start with the nest. You mentioned the difference in not only the research, but buying behaviors of millennials. It's not a salesman knocking on their door, trying to sell them a vacuum cleaner. It's not a conference and cocktails. It's a website. It's content that's found in a search engine. Does that mean that millennial decision makers are less interested in personal relationships? When you think about what actually drives consideration, is it all fact finding in digital content or is there still a personal.

I love this question because i think there are so many simple ways that we can give back using our passion that oftentimes they they may seem to small and and we just think oh. That's not big enough but every little thing that we do can have an impact. Like i wrote this book because i really believe you can use what you're passionate about to do. More good in the world so it makes me think of two categories like a business category and a personal category. And when i think of like business. I think of you know my husband's do mclaren and i we have. We have three or four businesses and one of his businesses. which is you know his. Try brand though. He does a membership Software day give back to our nonprofits. What they do is that every month. They do not every month one month a year. They donate all of their profits to our village impact to cover our overhead so they've implemented it and we've put it into that business from day one. It's a lot like you know. Russell brunson from click funnels ever. Since he started click funnels years ago. He said you know every dollar every funnel that has created one dollar goal to the cause So i think it's imp- it's putting some money aside from your company from the very beginning to other causes that you're passionate about so it gives back another cool way that you can do within your company or community is have your team come with three or four three or four different Charities or that they want to support in the team can vote on which one to support so then it it like brings the staff to get involved in who they're supporting it brings the community alive because they're looking at different things that they can support to so it's involving your community involving your staff into giving back into your business.

Surging Virus Has Michigan's Whitmer at Loggerheads With Biden
"About two. Dozen hospitals in the great state of michigan are at ninety percent capacity or above as that state steel. That state deals with a huge surge in cova crisis at least one michigan hospital the mclaren port huron hospitals at one hundred percent capacity as of this morning chief medical officer. They're saying that when his hospital tried to transfer out some of its patients with the most acute needs. They couldn't do it They faced long delays trying to move patients out because so many hospitals are so crowded. There's nowhere to move them. To as michigan cova cases and hospitalizations continue to rise inexorably without any relief at all. The michigan health and hospital association said today they expect the number of hospitalizations in the state to beat last fall's peak to head up higher than they have ever been before during the crisis at all. This is the daily new reported coronavirus cases in michigan. Right now there are dozens of states that are having covid case numbers spike across the country but michigan is by far the worst. Still though even in light of that today. The white house confirmed again that they're not planning to send an extra allocation of vaccines to to michigan. That is what governor gretchen. Whitmer is asking for to try to get michigan's crisis under control. The white house says they will send other resources to michigan to try to help but not additional vaccine supplies when you have an acute situation Extraordinary number of cases like we have in michigan. The answer is not necessarily to give vaccine in fact. We know that the vaccine will have a delayed response. The answer to that is to really close things down to go back to basics to go back to where we were last spring Last summer to down to flatten occurred to decrease contact with one another to chaffetz to the extent that we have available to to contact tracers. Sometimes can't even do it at the capacity that you
Secrets Of A Grand Prix Photographer, Bahrain Testing Day 2
"To go with today's action i'm joined by grand prix alex kalinowka and a special guest photography. Extraordinaire stephen t. To get his perspective from the front line. Stephen thank you so much for joining us today. it's been a very busy couple of days and bahrain How is the great nice to be here. Thank you for inviting me. Yeah it's been been okay at as you said. The weather was was fit. Weirder than we expected. I think everyone thought we were gonna come here. Very benign and a ball. They were able to really halt yesterday. And and we have to sandstorms but amazingly I think the amazing thing was caused the often is still managed to get to the time that they did a landau for about a day. That saying how amazed there was that you manage to get such a such a quick time in and he said that he thinks the because the track is Has got such a. It's a very rough track very wraps up. He seems to think that maybe the oldest a very very fine sand that was being blown around. What's going into the cracks and wasn't really effective in sumatra. 'cause they said it looks a lot worse. The cheap felt basically. So that's quite interesting. So how was that from your perspective because obviously it was very very sandy on friday. A love wins. And when you get bahrain as well you have to deal with the conditions of going from light to dark as a photographer. How does that change things. Foyer day these tests have been quite long. There's actually quite nice to have the dnc the otherwise everything will be a little bit one dimensional. You'd be reasonably nice light in the morning. He's got reasonably life nights. Layoffs at all or you should But it's nice. It's nice to have the opportunities to the lives as well. I'm here with them choosing mclaren so we're only allowed to even be on track or in team garage if you work and they see what folded at one team so we could allow full overseeing the garage then all out and circuit two very separate team says guys are on track. Spend the whole weekend on track guys in the in the cowards and spend the whole weekend in that garage is but so so it. It's quite nice to have to the you know the the change of life because as soon as the lights come on you can stop doing different things etcetera so It otherwise it would be very very long day on a bit. One dimensional when you set up for the weekends. You and the other talkers. Guts bahrain for the weekend diesel to come together make list of like the shots you want to get or is it very much A little bit more fluid than that shopping list is kind of creative. I in a client whether it be working might multiple dot com or ulcers. Full repay racing. We were We we put them yesterday. They they went suppress Last night basically. So they needed. They needed five parades and And pictures of every car. The team sponsors. We were all have big shopping list of stuff they need so it's very much driven by but yet you're absolutely right we do. It's around a on a breakdown. Who can do an five of the days. The best time to get the shot get shot there is a lot of discussion about basically and obviously in preseason testing updates as well which is quite important factor for editorially and i guess for you guys this photographer how do you kind of with that kind of aspects of preseason testing as well. What about talk of his mom. He's tossed with looking for that stuff and shoots just basically shoots stuff on circuit tries to get angles but my show walser. What the what. The teams are doing differently. So that's that's that's very much role this year because there's no active free actress to the line. I know access to other people's got the one working working working in it's it's very sham an od on the oneal and tracks Soup scenario about. He's been with this gopher nisa kind of see stuff so it's kind of interesting to hear it from especially within the time currently in but you know you've been you've been at the track stephen and you've been watching things happens. There been anything that's kind of caught your eye for the past couple of days. I mean just the number of laps they've been doing is one thing. Obviously we all know the calls on all the other they. They social differences to the merrill basically the same as last year. So somebody's been doing testing for chip more years than cats. Cats are remember One of the features of testing nor in especially you know going back a few years was the cause would sometimes do you know first day of testing four or five laps and spend the rest of the time in the couch being being get the updates in an engineer stunning scratching their heads over a various positive. But they've just been they've been pretty pretty now and they just been going round and round around so i think good other than that frustration for us i suppose The the there's been a lot flow is on the cars and And that's not something that Clients we go out to us basically because that gives away lots of secrets. So those those those locks have to be Speeches copy used from the laps. That's happening on and then hopefully they've been using the the arrow gates as well and a lot so That this There's been quite a lot of. Let's be quite a lot of that going on the last two days especially in the
Reaction and Analysis of McLaren's MCL35M Car Launch
"Twenty twenty one formula one seasons first major milestone took place that eight mclaren revealing. It's twenty twenty one call the mc l. thirty find and the team finished third and the twenty twenty constructors championship. And it's sayings powell. Thanks to trump as well as getting don ricardo as replacement for karla signs genius with all that change comes expectation and pressure and in this remark podcast recording. We'll be discussing what we learned from town. Today i'm joined sports f jonathan able to sports reports late smith and our technical editor jacob. Select and jake. I'm coming to you. I i question today what are the main takeaway technical changes that you've spotted on the mci five if he changes. There's a lot similar As we expected because twenty twenty cars we know very similar to was twenty. Twenty one calls with regards. Take the carry chassis for covid. Nineteen times Being still prevalent as well so does a few little changes Obviously we know that as the switch to mercedes and that's how big knock on effect to the rear of the car As we know every team has been lifted. Two tokens which they may spend on a certain area of the cost Areas requests takings to to develop The rea- off the chassis takes too so maclean seems to suspend its allowance on developing the era of the of the car. Try get as much bang free stock as it can because switching to the gym obviously if it can improve things there as well then. That's us what he's got a day. let's frontino which is relatively the same. As last year they introduce the. If you like mercedes star news In practicing magellan the carried forward. And i think part of the thinking behind that was because obviously that requires a cross strokes to change to to change in that requires tokens and so if they could do it right in the middle of the season than they wouldn't have to spend it going forward this season Hit them a little bit hard in when when the new updates first came out but they got it together. The end of the season. The place constructors championships. Obviously these changes date eventually bath fruits. But i think the key thing is of mentioned. The tokens have been spent on the rear of the chassis. The mercedes engine is not running power unit. It's a different architecture. It's a different layout and they've got to know. Just consider the mounting points on the chassis but cooling requirements as well and these will have a knock on effect on how the chassis is developed. So that's something they've had to consider. I think the most obvious showing if that is the change. The shape in the air intake before it isn't massively exciting. Last year. Had something of a darth vader mask kind of design which was is incredibly strange design. If you like is a lot more conventional this time it falls in line with what mercedes has every power unit has different cooling requirements Different architectures mentioned in the so getting the right cooling the right parts and the right amounts of cooling is is ideal so that's why they've gone to not direction obviously facing them say he's power unit into the back as well. That's that's something of a change so you'll the body sculpting in different way if you look to reaching point williams and mercedes as well last year. You'd see they'd have sleeping design on on the top of the sideboards and that's just to simply allow to drop down and on top of the floor and if you build you allowing high pressure that's to the floor. And if you building that pressure difference you're getting the disease to work harder now as we know another knock on effect of these regulations is the diffuse the as less potent this time around. They've had fifty millimeters lopped off the internal fences and so getting the to work as hard as it can is absolutely vital and say trying to get that clean athletes the back of the car. That's going to be so so important. In this situation to the regulations and other thing that we denote as well as the flows of changed mclaren has given us a glimpse of what it might look like by. Think that keeping their cards close to the chest on that one if you look at it. It's very very pads down. Let's say it's it's quite simplistic and we saw designs in practice the end of last year. That were a lot more complex. It'd be fat to say so again. Yeah the keeping something that keeping that caused cliffs that chest on that one because this might be an area of intense development of such but if team has a really good idea for that and is able to make up any ground. They've lost because they've lost of the all of these toys at the rear. End the slots the cuts if they can make up with what they do have available to them. It'd be a very lucrative area of development. So i think they're trying to sort of you know play expectations down on that front and just at the rear as well. The railing end. Play is brand new. If you'd seen that curved streak design something that has invented which is something. We don't say a whole lot on this on this channel but something they invent since one thousand nine hundred thousand. Something red bull ran with as well in in twenty twenty. So it's an interesting inclusion. it'd be interesting to see how how that works with the rest of the car. So there's a few to summarize a few new bits that we can see. I think there are more to come. By as a continuation. Looks very very sensible development of mclaren pops what we were
These Are the Most In-Demand SEO Service Right Now
"And you're kind of in the early stages of being consultant. So i want to hear from you about what are some of the services that you're figuring out the world at large needs from not only you but you know seo consultants what are some of the in demand services for seo's well interestingly enough seo and seo has a in is just wildly and demand right now you can go onto lean din you can go on any job site and you're gonna just see so many postings for roles and opportunities for individuals who know and understand search. I think i did a just at the end of twenty twenty is doing a little bit of research on it in the united states alone. There's over two hundred different or seo related roles at any given talk which is a remarkable amount of roles in an industry that is just growing at a crazy crazy quip. Two hundred open roles is alive. Considering there's about fifteen people in the world who know what they're talking about one way to look on this podcast for the record. One way to look at two hundred might seem low for a lot of other folks. But i can remember a time when i was applying for seo roles and there was maybe a handful of maybe a best a dozen legitimate real seo in the title type job functions but the job function had become very prolific and a core need for companies. Big and small in the interesting thing is i'm hearing from startups who just launched their websites to major enterprises who are trying to figure out. What the next investments going to be from an seo standpoint but in a nutshell. I think there's three things that i'm hearing the most in the market. So talk to me about what you're hearing. Yep and so. I'm hearing kind of three common threads. One of them as we are in desperate need of defining our long term strategy with seo. And how that connects with the rest of the company other marketing functions product engineering the services and solutions we offer in the market. The second thing that i'm hearing quite often is help a scale. We found something. That's really working but we're just not entirely sure how to take that from a hundred visitors. Two hundred thousand visitors and then the third thing that i'm hearing quite often and i think this is the one that's really exciting in for the folks that are in the seo field. That are listening to this. And i've been working in a while. Is there's just so much evergreen opportunities out there. There are new ways to define and refine the way you attract and source. Traffic and companies are realizing that this is something that you need to in boston early and often to secure this evergreen traffic. Okay so what i'm hearing from. You is just generally. There is high demand for seo's good news for everyone listening. Hey there is another job out there if you're unhappy but what people are looking for is strategy first and foremost. Hey what should we be doing over the long haul right. Where in a boat on the ocean. Sure which ways the shore can you point us the right direction right number two is we're going. You know two knots per hour. I'm just gonna butcher all of my sailing metaphors because honestly i've never sailed in my life. Let's much car. Were going five miles an hour and we want to put our foot on the gas. We wanna make sure that we're doing it in a responsible way and the third one is the realization that with seo. You're not building value just for today but you're building long term sustainable value which kind of goes back into. Why is everyone trying to hire. Seo's so all good things. What are some of the things that you've been surprised that companies now that you're consulting they do know and don't know about the modern practice of as you so the first one is the remarkable reality that many folks who either directly responsible or are overseeing seo or founder of a start up in. They're just getting their website going and seeing momentum with seo traffic the biggest thing. i see these individuals. Not recognizing is how connected. Seo is to other core investments. You're making across your business to give me an example. Yeah great content marketing and content generation thing. This is one of them that a lot of folks just don't realize that your content strategy and how you produce and implement and execute the contents will have a direct impact on seo in vice versa as you can have a direct impact on the a output of content. There is someone in the world who wants to focus on as you doesn't understand that the amount and the type of content that they produce impacts. Seo yes many what why. How is it well. I mean some of this stuff is actually quite traditional in the sense that content in s you have largely lived in silos especially in big organizations. Secondly there's often a recognition especially in early companies who are just developing their brand and developing their marketing strategy. Is they just start producing things and seeing what sticks rights but you fail to recognize. Is that it clearly. Thought out strategy in terms of knowledge. What you're gonna produce but how you're going to support it with things like seo or paid marketing or social actually have amplification capabilities in connecting. Those two things is really what people are. Missing is unnecessary. That they don't recognize creating content creates traffic. Everybody realizes that but what they failed to recognize. Is that kind of like far that without flint. You really don't have fire. And so what you need is the catalyst which is the driver of seo behind the contract right. So people don't understand the value of their content and how taking that content and syndicating it impacts your seo. Don't understand that you need content for seo bright mclaren. I was a little worried for the few size. Saw the fearing your is all right. So what are some of the other things that you've been surprised to find out that people are don't know that they need or think they need that. They don't yeah so outside of that. A strategy and the connection between different functions and investment areas. The next one that i think is really remarkable is the recognition that seo is by virtue something that just keeps on keeps on giving that. It's just it's always been there a big company coca cola. I've always had seo traffic. I always going to get us you traffic and this is a belief that i think is largely misplaced in. It's something that. I see and hear all too often not only from leaders and executives in companies but also more broadly. I hear from many vs ios in these organizations and please. If you're listening this episode do not believe that do not take seo for granted it is not something that's just going to keep coming.
Ford's New Rocket League Sponsorship is Perfect
"Besides the racing games which are a natural fit for car brands. There's one sport that made such a natural Fit For A brand sponsorship. I can't believe it took so long. It took it League yesterday Ford announced they're putting the Ford F-150 into the game. It's the first time a consumer-facing vehicle has been added to the game. So consumer-facing a key part of that. What does that mean rocket league has brought in a ton of different cars from media Universe has many of which are tied to actual Brands. You know, the Batmobile doesn't have a brand behind in the Dodge Charger is in game. So is Nissan's are thirty-four and so it's a Jeep, but the first two of those cars were tied to Fast and Furious DLC pack and they're based on old school cars for the charger it wage. 1968 and 1970 and the Nissan was based on the car from 1999 used by Brian O'Connor. The jeep was from Jurassic Park. So it's not like you can just buy these cars at a lot down. There was one other car that wasn't tied to a media franchise in rocket League's history. And that car is the McLaren starting at two hundred grand though. The McLaren is not a consumer car because it's a Subaru targeted at high-end customers. I'd wager to say maybe five people who play rocket League can afford a McLaren. Maybe that's generous Ford's F-150 is clearly different. The Ford F-series is the best selling Truck Series in North America nearly a million truck sold in 2019 when it comes to marketing you Market a Ford F series truck a lot differently than a new market a McLaren which is why it's fair to say. This is the first consumer-facing car that's existed in rocket League. What I think is really cool about the sponsorship. It says made up of a bunch of different parts first off the car inches the game great start it'll be available for purchase from February 22nd to the 28th. Then forward will also be a sponge for the upcoming rlcs winter major at the end of February that we taking over the in-game Billboards, which I still believe are a massive white space for sponsors Ford is also releasing a new ad around this partnership with the coolest part of that ad is that will be voiced by Bryan Cranston, you know the star of Breaking Bad also the dad from Malcolm in the Middle. Shout out to help crested also did for Superbowl at this year just to give you an idea about how much Ford is investing in the sponsorship and there's a final piece of a too which is also really cool Ford is hosting a freestyle competition people unfamiliar with rocket League freestyling is when you send your car turning like crazy to overcomplicate a goal in search of a sick clip, it's really popular on YouTube. It's doing tricks like flip resets double Taps Turtles and any other way to make a gold look really cool for it'll be inviting 8 freestyle rap. Our competition and the winner will receive an actual Ford F-150. Those are the kinds of small details that really make a brand sponsorship in Esports stand out to me. It shows an underscore the audience and the content that works with this audience as well. I really think this is the car sponsorship the rocket league has been raped for four years with the increased Esports investment from Brands like Toyota Honda BMW Mercedes and plenty more. I really can't believe it took this long, but good on Ford for finally making it
Testimony Under Duress with Brian McLaren
"Today. Special guest is the author of faith after doubt brian mclaren. Welcome to the show. Thanks great to be with you. Michael appreciate you coming on and sending me the book that's awesome. I always love getting books from the gas. Really fun the honest with you. Though man i was a little disappointed. There was no No autograph for you know. We'll have to try to remedy. That somehow awesome good. I like those special notes that they send me. Those are fun so does a little bit about your book. Well i was a pastor for twenty years and my life as a pastor. I had so many folks come to me over the years with their questions and doubts and things that just didn't make sense and Sometimes their questions really sort of the united my own questions and So i've always been interested about the intersection of pay out. Especially i grew up in a super conservative religious background. Where it wasn't real. You know ask asking questions and acknowledging that weren't really allowed so I left the past some years ago. And i i still speak primarily to pass pastors and i would say that hardly a week goes by where i don't hear from several people who tell me their pace falling apart or you're having serious doubts about this or that element of it and it's surprising how many clergy are also in that situation. So all that interesting together to say this is. This is something. I've been struggling with for a long time and Maybe something. I could help others with interesting. So do you think it's it's a good thing to doubt. Let's put it this way. It's a bad thing to just believe something because somebody else told you. You have two more threaten you with some punishment. If you didn't say that you believe honesty's important and stout important on a doubt in and of itself won't get us to where we need to go but faith without any doubt. is I think it's pretty dangerous. It among other things it sets us up to be exploited. It sets us up to the Ripped off by con artists because then con con artists. Were they they tell us to believe what they say and put son has been where Where we end up being manipulated manipulated by our ninety faith. Yeah scary stuff. A lot of cutler's out there and get you in you know you just go follow the group. Whatever the group does here drink this cool eight. It'll be great. do what what. What's a little scary is those kinds of Those kinds of connor artists exist in the world of religion and in the world of business and in the world of politics there hammer. unfortunately religious communities can easily become aggregate For people who want to believe and and then they become aggravates for people who can be manipulated. So that's why. I think it's important to help Christians and people of other religions well but for me as a christian especially how christians and especially i have a soft spot in my heart for pastors. Since i was one for so long to help passed a better job on helping people honest with their questions and doubts interesting. Kinda wanna go back to something. You said there for a minute. You said punishment if they don't say that they believe it. So do you. Do you find that if if if you don't believe something a punishment for not believing that is wrong or shouldn't be done a well. Maybe i maybe. I can explain it like this. I'm one of the things. I wanna the insights really that became clear from within. The book is how faith isn't just an individual. Aw an individual experience and doubt is not just an individual experience but because we belong to communities that are often bound together by agreements to certain creeds doctrinal statements or agrees that our social life is really wrapped up our doubts as well and And so what we end up experiencing a lot of its experience is that were part of a group and we just raise an honest sincere question and then people realize this is a question that our group is not allowed to ask and so The punishment might being new won't be allowed to be a small group leader anymore. Because we don't trust you anymore because you admitted that you have this question now. Probably a lot of other people that question through but they just hadn't admitted it or it could even go farther where people are at the face the possibility of excommunication and and there's not just the theological dimension that but that often means separation from family and friends. I in the beginning book. I tell the story the young man who came to see me he was a pastor. He he dared to question what most of us would consider an extremely esoteric doctrine of his little church and And he was kicked out and among the people who kick about were his parents and his gra- one grandparents so you can imagine how devastated.
NFL flexes Washington-Panthers to keep intrigue in Cowboys-Eagles
"Let's start with. The panthers and washington got moved to four zero five because they do not want the philadelphia eagles and the dallas cowboys to know that they've been eliminated if washington wins. They want the eagles and cowboys to still believe that. There's a chance dominated a chance during that game. So what do you got for. Washington carolina while for fantasy purposes It's well we're going to have to see who washington's quarterback is this week although rate before we got on on the podcasts. Here there was a situation involving dwayne haskins. Where their post on social media of of haskins Getting swag on at a at a strip club without a mask on look believe me. I know that there are Those are establishments where clothing is optional. but in the nfl masks are not right now. So washington is not going to be very happy about dwayne haskins. I think it was Tom pal sarab. Nfl network reporting that the team is handling that internally not happy. I'm sure. I think they want alex smith back this week. Anyway against carolina that would raise the ceiling of this offense. I'm still not one hundred percent. I as a matter of fact. I'm not confident at all antonio gibson playing this game turf toe is very painful so that should mean a big role for jd. Mckissic once again had a huge fantasy game last week against seattle. It was nice to see terri mclaren. Come alive in that game. A little bit with dwayne haskins at quarterback too good matchup against carolina. I would use him as a wide receiver. Three and over last month of the season only two tight end. Travis kelsey and darren waller have been targeted more have caught more passes and scored more fantasy points than logan thomas. He is a tight end. One now against the carolina panthers and i think everything would look better for washington if alex smith can play quarterback.

I'm really curious what's next on the the docket for the partnership with spunky McLaren. So what we're really focusing on is McLarens transformation, when when Zac Brown joined a few years ago. He really kind of set that Vision out on where he was just learning to go and it wasn't just Trackside is transforming the entire business and the way they think internally becoming a data informed and almost dangerous can as a culture. I think Dan would describe it as long as you know fearlessly forward is the way that they're trying to drive the company. So what we're really focusing on is looking at what that transformation matters so that whether that is when they're off on a a cfd computation on the supercomputer making sure that they can get every single last second out of the time allotted by the FIA to make sure that's productive through to really simple things. How do you bring the McLaren experience to the coffee dispenser in their offices? They don't want anyone distracted by this concept or something not working. So, how do we just Bring data to make everything just excellent too at McLaren and I'm so excited to watch their season so far. I think they're doing a phenomenal job and it just so exciting to be part of this ride with them. Absolutely. Well, I think it's it's absolutely wonderful to see the partnership with Splunk actually helping McLaren achieve its objectives and that's really what those great Partnerships are about as synergistic goals and it's been awesome to hear from both the two of you and also the other team members from McLaren tell us all about how really data is transforming. The world of racing how Esports is absolutely a critical component to the transformation in the development of drivers and and just it's been awesome to have you all participate in the virtual race to.com, and I certainly encourage everybody mm into tomorrow's race and our podcast as well.

We've got some cool ally interesting news about The McLaren announced that well, the Gordon Murray announcement that we wanted to get into. So we sort of got this job. So we can I hit that before we get started. Just, another word from our friends at Dodd's it's A. IT'S A it's time for dodge power dollars and that means for every horse power. You get ten dollars off your purchase on dodge challenger Dodge Charger and Dodge Durango come in and save dodge power dollars for pretty sweet deal. So as we As we are sitting down to record this. There's some news that's out there, and of course, the most interesting stuff that we're finding is Gordon Murray finally took the wraps off his. Off his new SUPERCAR, his t fifty supercar, Gern, Gordon Murray very famously designed a series of f one cars had a relationship with the Clarendon did the McLaren won Three Seater Central Driving Position Car I love that car bill I know you love that car it's sort of a wishlist amongst us all. I'm sure everyone who had an opportunity to get one at one point kicking themselves now because they keep going up thirteen, million, eight, hundred, million in life be knocked twenty million dollars going nuts So there was a great video presentation that came out. With Dario Franceschini taking a touring ordinary designs during Gordon, Murray on a moto and they took the wraps off this car and It's it's. It's pretty it's pretty cool. Gordon Murray's thing has always bands. About lightweight and from this car from. The initial design in his head all the way up to what it is. Now he said a goal of no more than one thousand kilos in weight and he hit nine eighty I believe puts it somewhere around twenty one, hundred, seventy, maybe twenty one, hundred, seventy, four pounds. This is extremely lightweight way in in. Today's world. Under twenty two hundred pounds. Of. A modern day car it. The Way to do that. And explain it when you go and you watch the videos, you read the press about it. Is. You have to design this thing from the ground up. With weight savings in mind every single step of the way, the the CAR IS MONACO CARBON FIBRE the entire bodies carbon fibre everything. That could be carbon. Fibre is carbon fiber of. The the engine he went to Cosworth and said, it needs to be naturally aspirated. It needs to be the twelve. It needs to be lightweight. needs to sound fantastic and it needs to be naturally aspirated. Of course, right? So. What they came up with was three point nine Liter v twelve.

You know I've A. Peak power is at eleven thousand, five, hundred dollars God, and the power to the Torah curved the I think the peak torque is around nine thousand. RPM. So between nine thousand and not red line of eleven five that thing just must sound insane and. Just skewed.

Bruce McLaren Pt. III - Life after Death: Road to the P1
"When we last met up with Bruce the young. Qe had left his home country of New Zealand and made his home in England working for legendary carmaker John Cooper in his factory. Bruce's racing career abroad had a bit of a bumpy. Start but after two wins at the Medina of Formula One. Not because I would say the machias Monaco Silverstone Bruce was finding his confidence behind the wheel is Medina. Like Madina Right. That's the first time I've ever really called on to city in Western. Saudi Arabia Coleman Anyway. It's the one thousand nine hundred fifty eight German Grand Prix. At the Nurburgring Bruce Finishes Fifth Overall and first in the formula to class. He was hanging in with the formula. One cars thing about how Formula One cards. You have to stay ahead of to be fifth overall but still win. The form from the to us about twenty-one sounds about right I'm not gonNA contest that's pretty crazy. Just like bump up a class like yeah I mean that. Just shows the prowess over. Yeah Yeah So. After the fifty eight German Grand Prix Hayman's mechanic Colin set off for England a race in brands hatch. Which was the very next day which I thought was insane. What these guys are always driving to raise amazing. They may act like now Racing is very posh. I guess like these guys are treated as athletes like you mentioned in the last episode. There's just so much data on them. They're checking their pulse. And their heart rates you know they probably like decompress the dudes after race in like check all their muscles and stuff like back then. It was a pretty like rag tag almost like the circus is coming to town. Yeah and it's there was no thought for scheduling. Yeah I'm really it's like. Hey we have formula one race in Germany. How will we go to Britain the next day? And there's like there's a race on there I don't know I guess two races back to back. In a day holiday weekend we might as well take advantage. Might as well make a vacation out of. Let's get some Carl's junior on the way. So they managed to complete the three hundred eighty mile journey from the nurburgring to brands. Hatch overnight and cooking. Yeah Bruce Hop in the car and finished third at that race and by the way. He wasn't the only one who made it to that raise. It was like pretty much the entire field in Germany. It's like a huge caravan of big old haulers and like probably station wagons and stuff just ripping down the autumn. Get on the M one. You know that's a local reference to angle everyone in the Midwest right now is like yeah. Three hundred and eighty miles. That's your commute. Yeah how far was la to Albuquerque for high low? It was like eight hundred miles so not that impressive. Sixteen hours twenty five dollars. God that was yeah. That was yeah. It was tasty blames my heart attack on that show. He's like like we just shot season. Two of high low the Z's are awesome now But like she was like very concerned while. We're shooting it because the last season was just so hard on us. This one was way easier by last time we work in eighteen hour days for like a month in a row and I had a heart attack like two weeks after it was weird man like that show like gotten the rhythm of that like you said eighteen hour days it was like okay you wake up drives garage work all day and then come home sleep for a little bit and then just do that and then after like two weeks this is like just a weird kind of few mind state. I forgot to pay bills beard dream state and like it's not like we're just going and work in it was like the highest pressure. Just everything was going wrong so much stress constantly and just like I think all of us cried. I cried cried cried. I was angry writing my lyrics by Bruce's twenty first birthday. He had competed in eleven European races and he had finished every one of them. Bruce believes it was because of the shared meticulous nature between he and his mechanic Colin they always tried to be first to tech inspections. I wants to practice and always have the car looking in tiptop shape in his book. Bruce maintains that quote. Three things are important. Go a long way towards winning races. I think it's time for just a little. Reminder of what racing was like back then the reputation that open-wheel racing has today as of precision and other worldly engineering and safety. But that's not how the sport was perceived in the late fifties. Now let no. Let's just listen to how Bruce describes a race. In Avis Germany. To my mind it was ridiculous to have a race. On the Avis Sick. It proved nothing and it was dangerous consisting of two two and a half Moss straights at one end by a hairpin and the other very steeply banked corner and when I say steeply banked boy I mean. Steeply banked is around forty degrees. It sounds more like something you'd see in running man to full throttle than a sanctioned race. I just think about. That's the most ridiculous racetrack I've ever heard. Yes big old oval that's not even oval is like hairpins up. Both sides knows a big bank at one side maintains a Frickin slingshot around the moon apart. And then you have to go through a hairpin shoe like the shape of the Caribbean her family. Yeah yeah so like you could just maintain a two and a half miles so you can maintain just like top out speed for. I'm guessing like close to six miles. Said Yeah they are in the book he says I think the average speed for that race was like one hundred fifty miles hour. That's absurd you remember. This is in the late fifties. Cars didn't have frigging seatbelts back. Then I don't think no no. No he goes on to describe the racing. At the Avis Circuit Race itself was like a group of boys and dodging cars wheels. Touching noses entails bumping jostling for the lead. But we do of that one hundred fifty miles per hour. Dodging cars are just bumper cars. Doug Jim Jim can't get a loan. I'm going to get some Cotton Candy Army Kit. The Dodoma's ooh that sounds. I'm going to try and win stuff bare minimum. There's a part of the documentary where he describes these like really steep banks. And he's going so fast that like it's hard to keep his hands in the bottom of the steering wheel like it's point his hands. Yeah isn't that crazy? That is insane. Bruce's appreciations about Avis testified as a crash sent one of the competitors flying thirty feet in the air and ejecting. The driver. The car went thirty feet. Car was out. Yeah the rest of the pack was able to dodge the car and continued their Breakneck Chase. Down the stretch back. Then they didn't even have like What's it like lotion rounds? Yeah they never. Yellow flag doesn't sound like as long as our cars on the way that's like a man. Keep it going. Crashes like these were not uncommon in racing back then. Bruce's car through a connecting rod that race by the way and the ejected driver also survived his crash with a broken leg and four. Broken Vertebrae like our racecar driver back. Then I'd be like okay. I'm down to race. Thank God I blew karate. Yeah certainly marina okay. I'm not going to win but at least I'm not dying today. There does seem to be at least a little bit of that kind of feeling. Drought the book because he when he describes time that it's car broke breaks down. He's also he's very sad obviously but also he then like in. The same breath described some horrific crash. Where someone just gets thrown from their car. His good friend got killed in a race and then he just like race the next day like they didn't even think about it. It was just like yeah. Of course I'm GONNA race guys used to die all the time.

Australia GP Cancelled - Heres 5 Times Other Races Were Halted
"One's twenty twenty Australian germ-free was efficiently tussled after McLaren member tested positive for corona virus. This Wednesday twenty Chinese free was already postponed after the strain of novel. Corona virus was believed to have originated in the country. Bahrain status is currently unknown. While the spread increases globally further races may be cancelled but these were not the first counseled races in Formula One. So let's take a look back at a few cancellations from Formula One's past and dig into the reason why each race dropped off the calendar after it got there. In the first place the most recent example a race cancellation the twenty eleven bar. Ingram pre was scheduled to be that year season opener but on the fourteenth of February. Twenty eleven a number of uprisings took place across the Middle East and North Africa known as the Arab spring as numerous citizens protested against oppressive regimes and the poor quality of life with us in mind embar rain. One such country experiencing civil unrest. The race was postponed until the end of the season. The plan was to reinstate the Bar Ingram pray to the thirtieth of October and in the process move the Indian grocery to December slot but unhappy with the logistics involved on the seeming disregard for Human Rights Implications the Formula One teams association photo vetoed the plan barring GP officials then subsequently dropped any plans to host the race that year instead wasting for its reinstatement in twenty twelve. The twenty twenty Chinese impre- is not the first race in China to be cancelled. The nation was penciled in Fritz inaugural F one race. Back in one thousand nine hundred nine back then then F ONE SUPREMO. Bernie ecclestone announced in nineteen ninety eight. The Joe Hi International Circuit was to host a Grand Prix on the twenty first of March. Which would make it the second round of the nineteen ninety nine calendar just months after its announcement. F. One announced that the Chinese Grand Prix would no longer go ahead as the FAA had been insufficiently impressed by the facilities at the second which needed work. If it was to appear on the following year's calendar however this never happened in. China had to wait until the two thousand four season to get its first Grand Prix. How'd Shanghai? Well they feel like the Joe Hi circuit describing similar to the Spielberg sects in Austria. We never got the chance to see it in f one action another race supposed to be on the nineteen ninety. Nine calendar was the Argentine Grand Prix but unlike China it had been a mainstay on the F. One shut you off the Argentine greats depression which began in late. Ninety eight the organizers of the race with feeling the pinch and were unable to much the funding that China promise to host a race but as we've previously mentioned the Joe Hi race was cancelled. The Argentine Grand Prix was reinstates the calendar with Provisional March Twenty Eighth Slot pending talks with parameters Formula One. But by the end of January the Argentine Grand Prix was also knocked off the calendar after formula. One was unable to come to an agreement the race at the Buenos Aires Sec. It was deemed not financially viable as several upgrades were requested but no ultimately produced the nineteen ninety eight Argentine Grand Prix. Then was the lost f one race out in Argentina and will they efforts were made to organize a street racing motto. Plateau off at the twenty thirteen season. It never came to fruition. Asterio at nineteen ninety-seven having been on the calendar for over a decade. Esther was one of the more scruffy venues on the floor. Shedu and the EPA had been battering the circus owners for years to make some upgrades but when the FAA formally requested a few safety changes ESTA ZONA scoffed after they've been on the calendar for years without having to make renovations why start now but in response. F. One cude is often pulled esther off the calendar replacing it with the Herath circuit in Spain. The caveat was if astro could make the safety changes required the FAA offered a loss on the calendar on the ninth of November. But the fixes weren't made in time while Ferrari and McLaren would believe to vetoed an eighteen race calendar. How things change as it stood. Herath hosted the season finale. And we know how that turned out South Africa. Nineteen eighty one. Despite the backdrop of apartheid South Africa was due to host the season opener of nineteen eighty one formula one season however the year began under the cloud of political wrangling between Governing Body Fisa led by Yomiuri Ballast and the Construction Association. Fokker led by Bernie Acoustic Visa. Wanted to change the date of the season opening race. Kyle Lami to April the eleventh two months after the original February seventh day. That had been previously agreed. Foam consisting largely of the British teams on the grid also had an agreement with Kyle Lamis Management for the February date leaving the two governing bodies in a little bit of a pickle. The race wasn't council per se but it was run as a formula libra rice rather than a formula one race meaning that it didn't have to adhere to the one thousand nine hundred regulations. We should heavily restricted ground effect dynamics so the focus teams ran it. Kyle Army with all the bells and whistles in a non championship race won by Williams driver Carlos Roitman but the race was ultimately stricken from the F. One record beforehand but with the threats of Krona virus rapidly spreading worldwide. More races may be cancelled their season. We'll have to find out if that's truly the case

What you know what I did? She it. And read didn't like it as much in. Right, right, red. It's gotta be the right read a straight up read. Yet, do it needs to be needs to be a little bit darker, sort of metallic read, the metallic needs to be in there, because there's like the concave kind of vent in the door that you, would you don't normally see because a lot of cars changing the color, they make it black to accentuate that with this car. You need the metallic to show the curves because it good metallic comes out almost a bright silver bright white when the sun is on it and that hot spot, and then the color sort of bleeds off of it. So you need a good blue metallic red metallic. Even silver be kind of cool. Wrong. I didn't say that. When I buy McLaren seven twenty s that I was going to older in asset gold. I just said, I enjoyed it on the prince card. Well, especially for tog Raphy. Let's get on camera. It looks great on camera and you're absolutely right. The metallic because that card does have all kinds of sexy curves to invents and, you know, from the back it has beautiful cover over the motor, and the carbon-fiber. So you know it really does show itself off. Well, fun fact, the seven twenty s has built in pizza oven. Yes, we found it didn't really kind of weird is on the bottom of the door. So it's got a scissor door. You open up the door and on the bottom of it like the sill of the door. There's two buttons and it opens the ton of cover, and there's a place to put like a briefcase like flat..

"Or there's some significance like one hundred nine or whatever of it, but the speed tail is, I think one of the fastest if not the fastest McLaren built to date. I say fast as I think, because of top speed not be not a zero to sixty because that's the whole point of the speed tail is that is the dynamics and stuff. And that's the three seater version that. Sort of brings up the, the McLaren f one your favorite car, right? Will be legal in the state. I think it is, I think it is street legal car. It's just gonna be a very limited. Like a hundred or one hundred nine or something like that. There's so I bought saying, I think that's a tough one to get on the list for obviously, you've probably have to. I'm just wondering about the seat configuration how they're going to. Look upon that I've seen I've seen leno's F one. And I've seen him open the door and climb over one of the passenger seats to get into into the center seat. And he's told me stories about taking guys for rides and that thing I don't know if I mentioned that story. So. Leno went to like a cars in coffee event like in tha Pango or something like that, or something like that. And, and to two guys to, to pretty pretty big dudes came over. And they're like, hey Jay, it's nice to meet you. And, and, you know, he meets people all the time these car vents. He's always very nice and tells people about the cars, but these two guys were like. Why don't you take for a ride in your f one? And you McLaren f one and he's like it's not normally my thing was a little intimidators too big dudes. And he's like have. But then what like where do I go? I'm alone with these guys. It's like it seems a little scary, but he's like, okay, I'll do it. So these two guys he climbs it in the middle seat. These guys are on his left and right. There's passenger seats on each side of McLennan f- wind and he's out there and he's going through the hills. And I don't know. He's like. Off of the one, one all in the like Malibu Kanaan's. And he's just he's just getting on the car having a great time with these guys and then a cop. Cop comes up behind them. Flashes, the light poles him over and he's like guys, I'm sorry. We were having a little bit of fun. He's like the cops going to come over the just get the ticket. The two guys. They look at each other. Like, don't worry about this j I got it. And he's like, no, no, no, no. You don't have to do that. We don't want to listen. I'll just pay the ticket, and they're like, no, no. We got it cop walks over these guys. Get out of the car turns out, both of those guys or cops. We've got James just taking us for a ride ahead a big laugh about it. He's like I thought you're gonna you're gonna fight. Like now. So he talked about that. Exact burial player. Right. That's the kind of story that happens guy like Leno which which is okay. So the speed tail is that thing. But this the McLaren GT, they wanted a traditional GT car. They wanted sort of touring car that they can get out there. So they came up with a McLaren GT, and which is interesting to me is it is arguably a very lightweight car. It was meant to be a lightweight cars. Gotta the carbon fibre monocoque tub and a lot of weight reduction in, in all the different components of the car. But what's interesting is, as GT car, you expect sound deadening, and nice leather and sound system and navigation. And like all the crew tremendous that you'd want in a nice, comfortable GT KARN. It does. Have those things, so they did all the weight savings, sort of in the engineering, not not really in the in the luxury portion of it..

"CEO Campbell McLaren for combat America's as somebody who spent a lot of time around the UFC, and a in fact, he wrote a book called invade the man cave, and I talk about it. It's such a huge sport combat America's is giant enormous. And that truly is a word. It's almost where do we begin with this guy? Our next guest is Campbell. Mclaren as I mentioned, according to his website. He is universally recognized as the co founder co creator of the alternate fighting championship. He is again, the CEO of combat a America's the first US, Hispanic mixed. Martial arts. Sports franchise in history. Wow. Campbell. Thanks so much for hanging with us. We appreciate it. Glad to be here. And you know, I'll be happy any time to talk about my favorite subject to them. Yes. So as you go into. I mean, first of all take us to that story. How does that happen? What was your background? Tv producer. I work for a company a very big company called Bertelsmann BMG music division. And we were doing a lot of music pay per views coming up on route twenty three years ago and the music Baker views were losing that giant company. John enormous amounts of money. That's never a good plan is. And I gotta tell you. The Germans really do not like to color. My job was to buy something at work and actually doing comedy some car racing. Stop and it was working pretty well and met haughty on Gracie. And I loved the game a video game time still row mortal combat. Chance to do something that looked like a reality version of combat and that's really what the first UFC tournament was. So. The tournament was a huge part of that back then to you know, as a sport has matured in a ball. It's very different. But when we started it there were eight fighters in one night, and they had to have three fights to win. So I think part of what really launched the USC. Would you got to see one fighter and in any usually was great? She back then you got to see one fighter. Go through three fights in a three hour period. Which is roic epic legendary all combined into one I think that's what really helped launch. Well, I never thought about this. But. Just kind of came to me while you were talking and describing this history almost twenty five years ago, but you now have John. Well, you know, I'm right there with you. But I just realized that I had never occurred to me that you have a whole new generation of fans that did not even know that that that beginnings of UFC, I mean them. They're saying something completely different. There were not even born. That's right. So how'd you had any experience in in boxing or wrestling or anything like that? When you when you started this. Well, surely started a lot of fight. I think I think what was interesting to me was. There was this whole. Seventies and eighties. There was a lot of martial arts. What we used to call kung FU and chop sake. Nonsensical martial arts. And what appealed to me with the US was a chance to sort of see what was on fought wasn't. And so I didn't have a background as a fighter, but culturally, the whole Bruce Lee, David, you know, all that sort of. Nonsense nonsense. And so this is a chance to sort of put all that stuff to the task. And I think we blew through a lot of paper Tigers like Chuck Norris and his ilk. It really didn't know what they were teaching and and we're kind of more bologna. And I think that was another cool thing about the early UFC. It was really of had a very strong BS.
