"Are down a road quite far now. We're whole season in. And then there was 6, 12 months of development on that concept before it even showed up. I would have stuck it out, honestly. Because I trust him to make the right decisions on that. Yeah, that I forget how to be world champions overnight. No, exactly. The people there to win again. Yes. John, you were there in the paddock. Blake's mentioned this kind of weird front end down force issue on Saturday. I mean, the last thing a team wants is to not know what the car is doing and to be discovering that as two, three, four races into the season. Can you tell us any more about what happened there and what they found out? Well, it didn't find an awful lot. I don't think I was told the following morning there was no smoking gun, no obvious explanation as to what happened on day two. They experiments planned for day three, but as soon as they began running on day three, the car was in a much better place. So it could be related to this, the term you kept hearing from lots of teams was chasing balance basically. I think with these new tires, the way you need to look after them over a stint tricky track as well Bahrain temperature fluctuations, track surface is quite rough. I think everyone's trying to get into the right window with a balance. And I think if you've got slightly out of it, especially with these new tyres being stronger on the front, potentially weaker on the rear max wreck and actually max reckon that the fronts were the same and it's the rears of a weaker, but we'll see how that pans out, but it could be related to slight wrong temperature, slight wrong balance, and the problem was exacerbated on the Mercedes, but it looked better. By the final day, but I agree with Blake about the efficiency. I think the Mercedes still needs more straight line speed, but they've already talked about a new sci pod concept or so I put update coming potentially around Baku time, I think. So that may well address some of these straight line issues and it'll be an area they hope push on forwards with. That doesn't inspire confidence, though, does it when they're talking about bringing significant upgrades based around the fundamentals or is that not bothered by that? Well, I think it's one of those things you can either view it as a glass half full or glass off empty, can't you that they've got a lot of performance coming like the McLaren can say we've got a big step coming for the car or you could look at it as actually we've missed this launch version up and we should have done a better job from race one. All right Blake, let's talk about your fourth point that you wanted to bring up on today's video. Your former team Red Bull looked so solid in Bahrain. And that was what was really interesting is that whatever run plan, they seem to do max seem to bounce out of the car. He seemed happy. That didn't seem to be any problems. But what was your take on Red Bull's test? I think having been at several of the tests in the winter, this looked like a really normal Red Bull test albeit with much better reliability than the old engine days. They were running through their programs, a lot of hybrid runs. So you do a performance run at the beginning, come in, change the flap, go out and do a high fuel run. And they were getting through lots of test items covering lots of mileage. I'm not a body language expert. When you see the drivers hop out of the car, max doing his Mac explaining with the hands and everything to the engineers. It looked good. But I'm not a body language expert. I like looking at data. And from what I can see, again, we go back to this point. If you're at the top of the time sheets, it doesn't necessarily mean anything good. But let's be off the back of last season, that car was a rocket ship. That DNA is still in this car. It looks like an evolution of the last year's car. It potentially a little bit better. They were very, very good on the tires, especially in the evening in the cooler stents. In the morning, when they put high fuel in the car, it wasn't too bad. It was in the mix, definitely not Ferrari look, but we, again, we don't know if they were pushing like hell or what they were doing. But the Red Bull looks like it's good on the tires. It's lap one day, three, the car looked like it was on rails. I had to stop and go back and rewind it and say, is that an out lap? Because it was planted in the high speed. There was no corrections. Just losing the rear tires just a little bit at the end of the lap, which as you were saying before, is very typical of Bahrain. It's very high on a traction. The rear tires are going to go away through a lap, especially on those softer compounds. Degradation looks good. There's no reason to be alarmed at the pace. I think Red Bull are going to lead the start of the season. Can you just explain a little bit for someone like me? This incredible analysis that you do of the data from testing. But when we look at what you're looking at, how can you tell on a long run pace that they had so little degradation? What are the things that you're pulling out of those data? To make that conclusion? Well, I think this is probably one of the most simple forms that you're literally just looking at their lap times. And one of the good things about, let's say when a team does a race simulation is they can't sandbag it or they can't put them. Because if they're going out, stopping for new tires and you know how much who you started with, you probably started with close to full tanks. So if you're looking at the laptop that they lose per lap and you see this, we'll get on to the other one, which is super interesting, but the example we go back to is Mexico last year when people like max was doing the exact same lap time for an entire stint. That is the characteristic description of very low dag, which is either which is very likely the fact that they have so much pace in hand that they can slow down so that they're not damaging the tires so they don't lose any lap time every single lap. You're just going faster and faster and if you're burning off that fuel, you're taking advantage of that couple hundreds of seconds from that lapse worth of fuel. Brilliant. John, can you explain for people watching and I've seen some comments over the last few days that yeah, in previous years, we've been at tests during Mercedes dominance era, where they have sandbagged a bit and we've looked at the data and that's led us to conclude actually maybe Ferrari are a bit stronger than previous years and then Mercedes have come out and just dominated.

"Your Monaco in Singapore, and they'll cover your monsters and spas. But if you have some fundamental underlying models wrong, let's say, tire model or the driver model as one, or you've mispredicted your drag, which I'll get back to, you can come up with an overall drag level of your car, which is super inefficient, and we've seen McLaren McLaren spend a lot of time at the low end of the speed trap, which was peculiar because that was a standout for the Mercedes powered cars. If you look at this year and they're saying we've probably missed that, another possibility is measuring drag in the wind tunnel is actually extremely nuanced and there's lots of things that you can miss in the data. And the whole thing that we keep talking about from last year to this year is making your tools match reality and all the assumptions you have to make. It's not a perfect science and teams will get it wrong. Mercedes being caught out the most last year with the porpoising phenomena and then having quite a narrow operating window that they couldn't move away from, the same thing could have happened with McLaren potentially it's either simulation result or a nuance with actually measuring the drag in the wind tunnel and they show up at the track again and they're scratching their heads thinking we're missing four kilometers an hour. And then your final thoughts on Alpine because John mentioned some short stints and at some point you've got to take the fuel out and see if you've got pace in the car. You were concerned as well about not even really seeing race, simulations. What's the problem with not doing that attesting? Well, this is their first opportunity to try all 6 of the new compounds or all 6 of the compounds we have some of them we know there's the new one of course. But you don't really understand the car's balance and everything else so they're talking about a lot of these new suspension systems they're working with and we saw the car quite a bit out of shape, which they didn't seem too alarmed about. But how does your car? What is your compromise in terms of how fast you can go and how long you can, how long you can sustain that pace. And if you don't know that, you could say yes, if we take 60 kilos out of the car, we'll be close to the front, or third row, right? But without doing it, there's no simulations you can run that you can do to predict your pace. And that's why you see teams last year. You saw it happen to Red Bull in Austria. You saw it for fry for the second half of the season. You can not, there's no models that predict that you have to observe it, and it's nuanced. And there's a lot of things that are uncertainties. And they don't have that data yet. Anything you want to chip in John before we move on? No, I think it's well covered. It just reminds me of 12 months ago completely. They had a terrible test in Barcelona. I think it was cut short by a few line fire. The DRS wasn't working. There was super heavy on field. And everyone wrote them off 12 months ago and they're kind of there was this bounce back. So that confidence inside the team. I mean, I think teams know if they're in trouble or not. And I don't think if they felt they're in trouble, they'd be talking about being cautiously optimistic and quietly confident. So we'll find out in a few days time. Okay, let's get on to Blake's second point that you want to talk about. And that is Ferrari. How did you see their test performance? Ferrari was an interesting one because I'm looking at the data from let's say when it's day two I'm looking at the day one day and watching the test in the background and I don't really feel like fry ever featured in many of the discussions. We're looking at the car, it looks great. It looks pretty reasonable. Nobody looks too flustered. But they just got on with the pretty standard program like a mix of hybrid runs where you go a performance lap into an extended run. It looked normal. They got lots of mileage, nope. I didn't hear anything about it, but two things that stand out to me. Their low fuel pace looks okay. And when they're in the mix, it's hard to say. Maybe they've got ten, 15 kilos more to pull out of the car. There's a couple tents. So very well could be finding for the front row. My gut feeling says, I think they might still be a little bit on the recovery. But I can not wait to be surprised. The thing that bothered me a little bit about looking at their car was their high fuel performance, especially at the start of their race simulations. Their degradation looked quite bad. And that was a bit of a carry over from last year, especially at the end of the season, so after we came back from the summer break, both Carlos and Charles were talking about the tires are overheating. It's both axles at the same time. And the only question mark I've got in my head is the 2023 front construction. They've obviously probably come out with a stiffer front tire to give more grip that was difficult for teams to remedy was set up alone. The only question Mark I have is that going to push Ferrari further into a bad spot. They've got typically quite a pointy car. Which is great for single lap. But is that going to hurt their race pace? They're race simulations, especially the first step when they're heavy on fuel didn't look spectacular. That's my caution for Ferrari. I think they're single lamp pace is good. Looking at their through lap performance high speed medium speed low speed, good grip, great high-speed performance. And decent traction on a single lap. What does that look like? What does that look like ten laps? 20 laps when you're 80 kilos of fuel. So when you say you're concerned about that long runs, is that specifically you talk about degradation on the tyres there? Absolutely. So how much lap time they lose per lap and it's always that compromise and you saw it a lot last year in teams talked about it. Do you hit the first stint very fast and deal with the degradation that you get? Or do you try to ease the tires into it? And I think that's the compromise. And they could have been playing with that. They could have deliberately hit some of those heavy stints. Super hard and see how much the degradation is on the tires. So maybe they're learning. I think that's one of the caveats. You've got to take for the test. We spoke to Fred Vasser on the final afternoon 30 minutes chat with him. In Ferrari, so quite a good thing for a change of atmosphere in maranello,

"Very well by the sounds of things Andrea Stella the team principal. He said that Oscar's quite unhappy at times in terms of the once more and more and he said, that's a really good trait to have in a driver. Oscar himself, as you say, there was a lot said through the contract saga last year and just before we started filming, he said, I'm glad she's getting down to business now and it's a really good chance to do his talking on track, which I'm sure he wants to do this year. And yeah, again, we had a chance to chat to Oscar and this is what he had to say about his hopes going into this year and why he's finally glad to just be talking about the racing and not all the off track stuff. Yeah, I'm really looking forward to just getting out there on track and I'm glad that everything that happened last year is behind us now. And yeah, just really happy to be with McLaren and to be finally making my F one debut. I'm looking all the history of the team as well that was part of the introductions and everything. What does it mean to you to be the next sort of chapter in that history? It's a very special feeling, obviously it's our 60th anniversary this year. Looking back at the history at the launch there was pretty special, you know, you've got names like Santa pross, Bruce himself, so yeah, it's very special to be part of that history and to be that next chip next chapter is really exciting for me and hopefully have a good career here with McLaren. Well, there he is in McLaren colors, but McLaren, not a dead sir for an amazing result this year they did slip to 5th in the standings last year, but on the bright side, the only team outside the big three to score a podium. So you've been there today you've had a good look around the car you've talked to all the key players. What do you think McLaren can realistically expect from their 23 campaign? I think the goal has to be progress. They may quite clear the 2024. That's going to be the year that all the infrastructure the new wind tunnel and everything like that really does come online and they got the chance to put everything together and make that big, big step forward. But until then, Zach Brown, he said that they made these steps forward over the last few years, even without all of these things in place. They've been able to do a lot of hard work, get some really good results, that famous one, two, at Monza, of course. And I think overall though, it's about getting to be best of the rest once again. They lost P four and the championship last year's Alpine, Lando Norris is quite open about the car being quite unsuited to his driving style, so I think a bit more consistency on that front, making sure the aero efficiency that was a big thing Andrea Stella said they want to work on is improved for this year. We're really helped them take that step forward over our Alpine, otherwise I think, yeah, making a big break, winning races against the likes of Ferrari, Mercedes and Red Bull, it might be a little bit trickier at this stage, but overall the main thing for them to see will be progress and hopefully regaining that best of the rest ranking in fourth place. Brilliant, all right, thanks, Luke. I was up at Silverstone a couple of weeks ago regarding a podcast with current Chandra for his big questions, podcast, that's online right now, and you can't help, but see when you're at Silverstone or the building work going on with Aston Martin and it's going to be a big year for them as well. That's your job right now, jump in the car, head up to Aston Martin and have a look at what they are unveiling a little bit later on today. You can join us on this channel for that video. And what do you think of McLaren's chances this year would love to know from you in the comments below have they got one of the best driver pairings on the grid? What if piastre shows Norris? What the car can do? What does that mean for Lando's career and possibly being a future world champion and we'd love to know what you think in the comments below. So let us know. Thank you for watching this. Make sure you subscribe to the channel if you love these launch videos because we've got another one coming. Oh, so soon for you. And we'll see you on the next one.

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

"You're looking at the sponsorship you're looking at the commercial deals you're looking at you're dealing with F one, you're dealing with FIA on big political matters. You're dealing with obviously driver contracts and overseeing that side of the business. You're making sure that you recruit the strongest possible technical team and then let them get on with the job, which includes track walks and things like that. Team principal doesn't need to be doing that. And you shouldn't need to do a track walk to get to know your drive as well and build a rapport with people. I mean, you can do that in lots of other ways. Team principal sitting in debriefs isn't something that I'm particularly familiar with. Again, what's up for? Are you checking up on people or are you are you calling the shots? Because you shouldn't be. I mean, if you're doing it because you don't have anything else to do, well who else is doing those important jobs who's on a Friday night if you're able to spend an hour and a half two hours in a debrief, who's having dinner with the sponsors who's taking out the drivers managers to make sure that when the driver contract comes up for a new all they do actually sign with you and don't jump ship and go elsewhere and all of those things. And looking after the big picture, as a team principal, team prison CEO role, you're looking after the overall business. You're not looking after detail. And that feature really I had a degree of astonishment at what was included and what wasn't included. And then I thought, well, who else is doing those roles? And my takeaway is, those roles are being those bigger roles are being looked after about other people. And that's because teams have broadened their management structure, so they've got commercial direct, not commercial directors in the old sense, but they've got chief commercial officers who look after the sponsors. And then you have an owner like Lawrence Stroll, who is clearly a very powerful individual. And powerful in terms of the way he operates as well. So ultimately it's his team. In my view, he's closer to team principles of old, but then, of course, you also have Martin whitmarsh, chief executive. But there's a little footnote in the piece saying, but he doesn't really come to races. So actually what you have is you have a broadening of the management structures, where everything being subdivided up into smaller and smaller units. And again, it goes back to the point you made about Alpine, who's in charge. Who's actually got the buck stops here? Is it Lawrence Stroll? Is it crack? Is it more whitmarsh? I'm sure Matt bishop could give us an answer as to who the buck stopped to have an organizational chart and they could tell us. But an organogram. Organic, but I came away from that feature thinking, wow. Things have changed to a great deal. It becomes too easy for people to swerve responsibility when things aren't on happening. And, you know, I worked with Eddie at Jordan for a long time. And we all have our strengths and weaknesses. But one of Eddie's great strengths was he always said, look, it's my name that's over the door. The buck stops with me. If we're not succeeding as a business, if we're not profitable if we're losing money, it's my head on the chopping block. And we have got to drive this business forward. And he was very strong in the way he would give a technical director that wherewithal to go out and deliver working on the commercial side, working on the political side, all of that, very, very strong entrepreneurial skills. That's not what you're seeing from a lot of team principals today. And I think it's one of the perhaps inherent weaknesses of some of the lesser teams. Final thing I'll say on this, very telling in the article where they talk about the fact that tilta wolff's the only person who doesn't sit in one of the few team principles who doesn't sit in the pit wall. And he sits in the garage. I think that tells you a lot about total wolf and his leadership style. He knows that he doesn't have a role to play directly in running the race. Of course he would come on the radio if there was a major political drama full unfolding. And that's where, again, as a overall, if he ever does come on the radio, you know it's serious because he isn't supposed to really be there. But toto is a delegator and the people on the pit wall, they're responsible for running the race, told his job is to oversee it. And he's usually sitting there in the garage with a chief executive of major sponsor, Jim rattler, fellow shareholder and the team standing beside him. He's looking after the business side of it. The thing is that the title team principal covers a fairly broad and often overlapping set of descriptions with particular teams. But also, as you said, we are well beyond the era where the team principal is the person whose name is above the door. Now, total is a little bit of an outlier in this case because he's a shareholder as well, whereas the mic crack style of team principle is very much an employee and a link in the chain and that chain goes higher up. And maybe there's an argument to say Aston Martin is one of those organizations that is maybe a little too corporate because they have lots of high powered marketing people. There's the chap at the top whose name I can't remember off the top of my head. There's rob bloom, who they got from McLaren, who's also got a C suite title involved in marketing. There's an awful lot of marketing people and that's reflected in the number of stickers there are on the car and how well they're doing commercially. But it's obviously something that they see a dividing line between the U lock get money and you lot make cargo quickly. And in their world, the team principal, his job description is to be ultimately responsible for the performance of the team on the race weekend. Again, an interesting to see how team structures and leadership structures have evolved. I think you're referring to Jefferson slack, whose managing director. Yes. Managing director. That's because he has a very strange name, which is why it's gone down the cracks of my mind. Yeah, I mean, you know, his background was getting across international sports business and. Aston Martin put in place a very strong commercial structure. And as you say, it's reaped rewards for them. I've had a formidable

"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..

"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..

"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 MarTech Podcast
"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. If you're interested in hearing more from will Barron on the salesman podcast or any of the other great hosts in the HubSpot podcast network, you can go to HubSpot dot com slash podcast network.

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.

G eighty obviously very popular now because tiger woods accident and i saw one of those cars up in up close and personal and it's a good looking called looks. It looks nice. They're they're supposed to be sending me you know whatever. The big engine is in the in the top trim package and i'm excited about doing kind of this road trip to try it out but you know we really been kind of liking the look of genesis. We haven't driven the suv yet. I thought it was the same platform as the kia. Tell you right. But i'm actually not really sure because i don't recall how big it is and i hate to say put. The whole tiger woods thing seemed to really be one of the biggest pieces of promotion for that vehicle. Ever always talking to a alastair from edmonds and he said after. That accident became the most searched for vehicle at edmunds dot. Com was the g eighty. And i think people were just wanted to see what it was and to of course the sheriff going on the news and going. Yeah this vehicle saved his life so people like. Oh that's how i like that. I like lifesaving gul's signed me up for that so it should be an interesting ride. They emailed me this morning. They said the car is tied up a photo shoot. Could we deliver tomorrow morning. And i said i'm leaving tomorrow morning. So hopefully they can get it to me by the end of the date. Well it's a. It's an interesting time because there's so much good product out there. I mean it really is a great time to be looking for something. That's relatively inexpensive. Genesis is obviously a higher end vehicle. But you know the the hyundai tucson and the the key is making some good stuff mazdas making some good stuff happening. There's always honda and toyota there. But those little compact kind of smaller size. Suv's there's a lot of good stuff. There's a ton of technology and they work and you know you can be. You may not get the the badge that you want on. The car may not say mercedes. Bmw but you can get a damn good quality vehicle for a real good price these days and that wasn't you know when when i was coming up you had your choice. You could buy something nice and spend a lot of money or you could get a little shit box because the car companies were kind of like ida girlfriend that had a hyundai something from you know. Nineteen eighty nine. or whatever. And that when you when you could choose the hyundai but you're gonna take your lumps. You know what i mean and you could. Even you know nissan was kind of that way even honda to some degree. But i mean if you chose an zuzu something all right that meant. You didn't have money but you you're going to be punished. And now after taking a look at some of these cars like the the tucson especially and spend some time in. That's like still big difference between this and the audi just just thirty grand basically but you'd be perfectly happy driving around with the air conditioning blowing listening to your satellite radio and bluetooth and all the touchscreen and all that in this car so it's really now everything works. everything's nice everything's safe and it's just about what what you want on the batch. Yeah we talked about even if some of these like the genesis is out of the price range. They seem to be pretty good quality. And there's a warranty there and if you can get certified preowned you get like a lease return or something. You might end up in in pretty good shape for something like that. So it'd be interesting to to to take a look at. Hopefully we get that. In the meantime let me tell you guys about dodgers you dig into your toy over there. I'm trying to open my nine thirty five.

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.

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
Voices of Search by Searchmetrics
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
The Bible Says What!?
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.
Fantasy Feast: 'Eatin
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.
