"Without doubling the amount of racing. I just seems like an obvious solution. Now, two things here. Either we accept that Monaco is unique and then we kind of turn a blind eye to some of the current stringent regulations regarding pit stops and fuel you need to have and tire allocations and what have you. So either we accept, turn a blind eye to those for this one race, given the extraordinary circumstances of monocoque Monaco. Or bay. Because if you recall, about those 1000 wasn't always a championship race. Oh, I see. You see where I'm painting outside. Outside the one rice. Yes. It's not a Formula One, right? No. You want? Whatever you want. You want to take the helmet off, you take your helmet off. Well I got it in everything. If you want to turn up with an IndyCar, be my guest. But good luck to you. Yeah. So what if we just to Formula One event? Yes, not that world championship race does it really matter that it is not a world championship. Rice. Because the Monaco Grand Prix is always going to be the Monaco girl on Prix. If we take away the points aspect, the championship permutations, if we make it just a stand-alone event, then you could have wild caught entries too. Teams that want to be in it. Yes. Yes, exactly. Wouldn't that be good then that Stefan GP team, they're still doing donuts in the Toyota car park and cologne. They can enter one race because it's a I don't want to say it's a junk rice because it's yeah, it's still very special. You need to respect the moniker Grand Prix. I don't know if maybe this has been formed because, you know, the Monaco Grand Prix, it's been one because it's been the same 300 kilometer odd race. So I don't know how I feel about that. Normally I'm pretty okay with that. However, in terms of just kind of discounting, well, bring what you what you can. Go nuts. Yes. I think the other thing I'd love to say, we've just had ND on the same day, obviously. Yes. But the indie goes for like a month. It starts off with the Indianapolis Grand Prix, which is just a conventional race three days, whatever Indy race is. And then you've got like weeks. When we talked about a couple of weeks ago, I got all those funny names for the days, carb day, bump day, leg day. All of the time. I got a day dedicated just to that thing where they pull your head with a massive rubber band or whatever that's called Nick die. Why can't we do the same with Monaco? Why does Monaco have to be through? Why can't they do? 'cause they close the road any, not they don't close the road, but they put up the barriers and stuff months in advance because I had formula E there. I think at the end of April, I started why can't they just do lots of random? Why can't we have carb day in Monaco? Yeah. Except fast, we just eat heaps of pasta. Rookie day. And then you've got to get in the car full. Rookie day. What a great idea. They should make it if Monaco is going if the Sunday is going to be a big crap. Let's be honest. Make everything else better. Just make it bigger, louder, bring that clackson back. So much more like a drew. I reckon.

"Whoever is standing in the way of the pit siren, please get out of the way. Because it's really annoying to everybody, this claxson that we're having. Oh, thanks heaven. Someone's got out of the way. That was the hero of the Grand Prix. It was something to do in the break. Let's be honest. Imagine figuring out, oh, hang on a sec. Okay, walking in front of it's like being at a licker land. And the door chime comes in every time you go to get out of a doorway. Yeah. It's annoying. I'm pleased to tell you, rob. That we put around with this 7, 6, 7, one of them. We are at 488. Oh, that's close. Come on, 12 short. Oh, is that an overreaction robot? I have a reaction, Jared. I have a reaction. Just 12 more people. Just 12 more people need to join. So close. To get to the half foul. Whatever you want to call it, I don't mind. We just need 12 more. So tell 12 of your friends and make sure you sign up may you sign them up. Make sure. The winner of the Monaco Grand Prix round from the United Kingdom. Tragically, name cut off. Can not read. I think this was raised in the Discord channel, in fact, by Mia that he could see the name. I can not. I can not see the name. It is all the lip system to me. I'll wait. Now it's all ellipses to me. And so you'll have to feel in the ellipsis on yourself. John D is Ukrainian breakdown filling the rest yourself. Killing the rest yourself. I'm sorry, I'm sorry, me. It's just what the website is doing to me. I'm trying to zoom in on trying to zoom out. I just can not, it just will not play ball with me. So maybe you've got a text in your names. But anyway, he was leading in Monaco. With 273 points, I head off Mick Schumacher's. I think you can figure out what's going on there. He was second AlphaTauri spelling. Spelling. Alpha Tory. You have to have watched the search. TV show on channel ten. I understand those references. This is the first time we've not had the great United States in the top ten or 13, in fact. Yes. Incredible. It's quite an Australian sort of showing. We should show up in the top ten every now and then, but this is true. This is the Commonwealth top ten. It's great. It's celebrating the queen's jubilee, presumably. Did that happen? She's still with us. Not with that. Not with Australia. He prove it. Well, he can't. So you just have to take it. It's like, just have to take it on its word. If the face is still on, if you pull out a coin in the face is still in the back of my understanding, is she still alive? I'm going to go protest and put up a sign and say, there's a grand conspiracy. Tame one. Yeah. Classic classic saying sausage curb launch control. That's all right. I enjoyed this one from Rachel day. Rubens Barrett checo. That's pretty good. And tali is very quite frankly. Getting very louder is the noise, the Daniel Ricciardo. What? If anyone needs to go on real overreaction. Then you ricotta. I think that's a tough one for another day. Yes. Or a number segment. Let's look at the overall rankings. Number one, the United States back where I guess they belong because they are dominating the top 5. Number one is Ricardo don't call it a comeback, another reference right there. But not leading by a lot. In fact, leading by only 13 points from sidebars, what side pods from Australia. Liquor Lando Norris, the people's champion is third. Fourth, Daniel Ricciardo's farewell tour. 5 spa rain. At least one of those circuits might be alternating with another one to talk about that labor. Technically he's the world champ 5. Could mean anyone. Who knows what he's talking about there? Now, I'm very annoyed because you know how much I enjoyed. What was it? It was liquor Lando Norris. The great sponsor. That is in context if you were paying for the edge. And is the paid sponsor that you did not receive. But in 19th, see, I came up with something more complicated and wordy. Liquor land, the stamp and send it. It's okay. However, stain. It's 220 points for the Monaco Grand Prix in equal 19th place. Very a lot of equal 19th. I would almost say it's a typo, but here we are. Sharing the 19th place podium with alongside other names such as pay this NFT and boring. Gunther Fox smash door. Yes. Leclerc land. At the very good. It was right in front of me. And I didn't take it. That is very, very good. That is the people's champion is the true people's champion. For the Monaco Grand Prix for those of you on the land. Watch the clear land. That is very, very good. We've also got a suggestion in on the Discord channel. So in liquor land watch myself, I was 52nd with 209 points. That's great. I'm happy with that, have we that? But I was usurped in 51 place, which was actually even better than I am. Yes. Never thought these two would be the strange bedfellows these two Jim Clark. That's also very good. I'm enjoying this vein of names. I'm enjoying the mash ups very much. 51st you were. That's great. I was like 300 something. What? Who is my friend? Forget who my team is. Who's on the lick of land bandwagon? For the Monaco Grand Prix, I had Valtteri Bottas. That's okay. Sergio Pérez. Yes, boys. Lando Norris. Oh yes. I'll train himself. I'm not bad. And to a lesser extent Ferrari. So that was pretty good. But my team literally, all right? Well, I didn't even finish on the podium, I guess. Alonso, Bottas, gasly. Kevin Magnussen, okay, he retired, wasn't his fault. And Ferrari, and yet I finished must be very close competition we've got here. Come on Magnussen. Ferrari again Ferrari's engine let me down. Looking at the overall leaderboard though, I am similarly disparagingly 328th. Is this out right? Yes. The real test this one. You must have improved. Nah, I think, where am I at? I am at the side of the top three 50 of 332nd. Oh, it's close though. It is close. If you want to join formula, mcginley, you can go to boxing to his dot com, the fancy F one button..

"Away immediately, that all the right things. But did you get a chance to speak to either of the hash drivers or the team after the race flight? Luke spoke to Bose. I spoke to both of them. Aren't you lucky? It was a very only very briefly to make. He was pulled away quite quickly, but yeah, he was taken to the medical center as tends to be the case with major accidents like this week. He said, look, I feel I feel okay and he said it was such a weird accident. He said he reckons he may be when a few centimeters onto a wet patch and quarter and then I just absolutely sent the car and it was just one of these things where there was only one line around that. If you go off the dry line you're in big trouble and I think Nick just caught a little bit of that with obviously very big consequences, but he was okay, which was good he's just said it's very, very annoying. Obviously this pointless run to start the season is it's not something he wants. I need to make a big breakthrough and I think the performances have been there have been good points, but we do need to see actual points to justify sort of what I guess what he's doing in the progress he's making. Sebastian Vettel, he was asked about mixed accident after the race and he said, I think you guys, I mean the media needs to sort of give him a break and stop being so hard on him, and it's like, yes, okay. That's a fair thing for you to say, but also it's our job to be critical and to hold people to account and to be journalists and to be analytical and I think that yeah, it is a mistake and it's the kind of thing that you look at and you say, look that cost you a chance to sort of be there when things all shook out. But yeah, so not what Mick would have wanted with camera. I mean, me and a lot of other people were like, oh wait, he's retired. So much was going on through the pit stops. It was only a few last place we actually thought that he was out of the race, but he was, again, surprisingly upbeat for a driver who just retired from the race. And he said that he thought that he was in a really good point. He thought that he had the pace to get past Bottas and he bought us up 9th, so could he have been in the mix for some points quite possibly, but he was a power unit issue in the end that ended Magnussen's race. It meant that Haas came away without any points today. Yeah, I did the same with Alex Alban. We haven't talked about Williams yet. I hadn't realized that he had retired on lap 48, such was the sort of focus on other things. And his teammate Nicholas Latifi, who I mentioned had that early lap one incident formation lap even in the treacherous conditions coming home. Probably no big Williams talking points coming out this weekend unless I'm wrong. Probably not. No, there you go. That sums up will be in a bit harsh. I had no cobblers. No, no, not at all. I mean, sometimes there's nothing to say about. Well, okay. They red hair. No, no red hair, the red hair. Yeah, that's not it's fading. But yeah, it's the kind of these kind of races that early in the season Williams were really capitalizing on and seizing the moment as the codders touched on earlier. But yeah, they weren't as able to do that today. Yeah, I think that I think for Williams, they, again, a bit like Aston Martin. It's like, where are they going? What more can they get out of this car? But this weekend was quite, it was quite anonymous. Latifi obviously had that crash on the formation lap and he's basically 5. The throttle got stuck. He just went on and it was something with the car, not a mistake on his part. So yeah, that would be something for William salty looking. But yeah, days of the kind of races where you would normally think, yet they're going to roll the dice and do something with Alban and maybe snare a point, but they weren't really in the picture at all today. Album was quick at certain points of the race. There were a couple of bits of the race where he was going purple, but that was because he was running on his own at the back, having committed a few blunders, he went off the track a couple of times. It just looked like a very difficult car to drive. They talk about it lacking down force. That's you sort of say, well, where in Monaco do you need down force? But these cars all run high down force packages to maximize what they have. And the Williams, that's just not in the car's skill set, unfortunately. And how many times over the past few years have we said that Williams is decently quick in a straight line, but lacks that ability to put down performance through aerodynamics. It's clearly some sort of ingrained problem that they need to address and it might even be a physical issue with their wind tunnel facilities, their research facilities because they've had a bit of a shake up a lot of bit of a shake up in their tech organization for a while. We could have asked FX demaison when he bumped into the lift ahead of us after we parked our car the other morning. Oh, I didn't realize that was him. Yeah. There we go. That's an hour. We move on to somewhere where there won't be those kind of downpours, at least highly unlikely air temple mid 20s. You would think for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. We're heading back to Baku, of course, we've mentioned already Sergio Pérez getting his first win for Red Bull their last year. Who is the fine fine team we are sending there to cover things for auto sports and motor sport dot com. We are sending Mac Hugh solo for also sport. I as some of my bids try and get some kind of work life balance.

"Yeah, I'm on the same page. Obviously, in Spain, max had his random gust of wind at turn four that sent him off and put him as a disadvantage, and that sort of very much handed the sort of lead as it were between the two to check out with this, I think there's no way you could say that Verstappen has been the better driver over the balance of the Monaco weekend. Obviously, Perez did it in Q three. Which will no doubt amount to a demerit when our colleague Alex Colin orcas comes to write his driver ratings, but we were discussing this in the car on the way back to our Airbnb. And just sort of mulling over what score he might give to max. And the fact is max has had would you say that if someone who finished on the podium in third place has had an anonymous weekend by his standards, yes he has. He seemed quite happy to be playing a supporting role today, he's in genuinely happy for Perez, he seemed to be there almost as his wingman. Like the roles reversed almost this weekend, like he seemed happy for him. And that speaks to the I think they've got a really good relationship. That's the thing. I mean, max is tended to get on pretty well with most of his teammates in Formula One, but I think we check either in a really good groove, and there's already talk about sort of like Perez for next year, like what's going on there. Christine Horner, he said, on Saturday that it would be pretty straightforward. He hoped because Paris is performing very well. I mean, after this today, like surely that's that only confirms that what I think we know is going to happen here. Check who's going to get another year because it's just such a good setup there. So yeah, you can tell there's real, I think there's real good vibes between max and shako. Matt's clearly is number one. Max's guy is going to be winning the titles for rebel moving forward. But Pacheco, he's got a great chance to be the wingman, but every now and then have things turn around as they did this weekend. So yeah, I think he's been he's been a really good fit for Red Bull and I think this weekend was that to an absolute tea. A popular win today, no question. Half an hour in seems like a good time to have a quick look at the rundown of teams and drivers. After the event today, Max Verstappen leading the way on a 125 points leclerc 116 then Sergio Pérez a 110 as we've mentioned already, George Russell continues his fabulous points scoring. We'll get on to George next actually in Mercedes. With 84 points, having scored a ten, a 12 and a 15, ten or 12 and 15 points, and then a ten, which kind of messes up the pattern. Carlos Sainz, a point behind 83, and then Lewis Hamilton and on 50 points and Lando Norris a couple of points behind in terms of the constructors championship Red Bull, extending that 235 points ahead of Ferrari's 199 Mercedes, still in thirds. You would say because of George Russell's performances, let's get on to Mercedes now guys that if we can, so George Russell, 5th leapfrogging Lando Norris and Laura Hamilton coming home 8th. Do you think they'll be happy with that point's haul today? I know Louis felt frustration at the time, but seemed to pragmatic afterwards about being stuck behind Alonso, which will get onto on those slow laps. But how a Mercedes feeling coming away from Monaco a track that hasn't been particularly kind to them over the years, actually. I think they'll take what they get really this weekend. At the moment, 5th and 6th is kind of the absolute maximum they're going to be getting. So yeah, it's come away with the 5th and 8th. I mean, I know it's not a massive success, but at Russell did very well to jump Norris through the tire changes. I think that was good. The pace of the car did seem very, very good. Yeah, as they sort of got into that dry, dry tyre fates for Lewis Hamilton. I think the not a brilliant day obviously got stuck behind Alonso's I know we're going to get onto. But at the moment it's kind of, yeah, just take we can get. That's all they can do, Hamilton said that the bumps, the bouncing has felt worse than ever this weekend, but he said it's not down to the porpoising issue that they had before because they remedied a lot of that with the Spain updates. So I think it just goes how the W 13 car was struggling around Monaco. As you say, tradition, it's not been a very happy hunting ground for Mercedes. So yeah, look, when you win 8 championships in a row, if you're not winning, it's kind of like whether you're 5th or 6th or 7th or 8th, it's like where it's all kind of academics, all the same. It's not really very good compared to where you want to be. So I think that's the mentality Mercedes got right now. They want to try and make these steps forward. This weekend, yeah, it was a tough one for them, but as Lewis kept saying after race, I just look forward to getting that to a normal track basically, and then we can really see what this car is like again. Yeah, I mean, to put George's achievement in context, we should note that there's a little bit of low level complaining in the background of he shortcut the chicane twice and wasn't shown a black and white flag which procedurally he should have done. But I think the unfortunate thing for George was that he pulled off an absolutely super overtake on Lando Norris around the pit stops, but unfortunately because it was all kicking off between Ferrari and Red Bull at that point. That was not actually shown on the main TV broadcast. He had to go to the on boards to look at it, but essentially Norris only did 5 laps on the inters and he came in to put the hard slick tyres on. 5 laps after it put the inters on. George stayed out. He basically did the science gambit. He stopped for the slick tyres on the same lap a science. A lap later Norris came in and Norris came out of the pits just ahead of him and George literally seized the moment and drive straight past him on the way up the hill, a really, really hard place to pass. Let's not forget that Carlos Sainz failed to do that on Nicholas Latifi thereby kind of been in the wind there albeit in slightly different conditions. But George was just brilliant there. Before the McLaren's tyres came up to temperature and he got an extra few points for his efforts. Landon Norris only this week I think admitted the full extent of how ill he was for Spain. Is he completely fully recovered now? Or is he still suffering? He sounds like he's still struggling, but he's not a 100%. He's most of the way there. And I think he will be for Baku, but yeah, he was all weekend like you could tell that he's still struggling a little bit.

"It just all fell Paris way. There was a tiny element of luck for Perez as well, because when he came out of the pits his first stop, he was on track behind Lando Norris, but Norris then pitted immediately afterwards. So he then ceased to become a factor and that was what contributed to Perez's swing because he then had that empty track in front of him. Okay, help me out with something because the TV coverage was talking a lot about how the overcut. In other words, pitting later than your opposition. The overcut is what won it for Red Bull. And yet all I could think of was, well, hang on, no, Perez pitted two, three laps earlier than the Ferraris. He pumped in some brilliant laps on the inters, closed the gap and isn't that what won it for him, or did I miss something? Can you help untangle that whole kind of undercut overcut? How the strategy teams won the race today? That was to beat leclerc, but then to beat science because what Ferrari did with science, he very early on said, as I said earlier, he didn't want to come in to make that switch to the intermediate he wanted to go all the way through to slicks. That's something that in 2016, Lewis Hamilton did brilliantly to win that race, obviously helped by Ricardo's dud pit stop, but it's a known thing in Monaco that, yeah, you do sort of try and cut out basically a tire and save a stop. Science very early on said, I'm going to do that. So that meant the once Paris pitted. He was behind science, the science had had the advantage basically in terms of like, they both had to come in once more. Perez was obviously able to gain a lot of time because he was on the intermediate compared to science he was on the wet towards the end of that stint. But the thing that her sciences race and actually he said afterwards, it ended my chance of winning otherwise I probably would have had it was that he here traffic on his in lap in the form of Nicholas sati, who he got stuck behind. Obviously Monaco is very, very hard to overtake even with bat markers to let another driver pass with blue flags. It is very, very difficult. And that costs him time and he afterwards said that's what he reckons cost him because obviously he came out in second place in his very, very close with Perez as we saw through those closing stages. But yeah, without that signs, I think I'd really good shot at the win. I spoke to someone who works very closely with Carlos after the race and said, is he disappointed? Is he frustrating? He said, it's not really frustration. He said, it's obviously just a case of, yeah, look, we know it's going to come at some point. This first win is going to arrive. But it is, yeah, it's obviously minor factors like that, particularly around Monaco, the do swing it completely. So yeah, I think that undercut for Perez on the clerk, that's what got him to beat leclerc and then for science, it was the over cut because science got stuck behind the TV that allowed us to get the jump and win the race. That is makes perfect sense. It's me being slow. Which is more than often the case in a kind of chaotic race. A frantic start to a non start to the race. I did make a note of how long I think I noted one hour 9 minute delay. Maybe the race start was three 16. Which means four 16 your time. No, it was four O 5 that we got out behind the safety car for the formation app and the official start. So yeah, now in 5 minutes behind schedule. And it was a combination of facts, obviously we have The Rain falling and that they wanted to give time for everyone to be able to get The Rain tires over so they could be prepared for that start. There was also a power outage on the grid as well. The contributed to the delayed start that basically impacted all of the start systems and everything like that on the grid. And that was also why we didn't have any standing restarts after the red flags and the race as well. That's why we always have rolling restarts and something the FIA clarified after the race because obviously that was a big country using factor in those lays that happened. Was that caused by The Rain or the fact that it's a temporary I'm not entirely sure. They didn't give us that explanation that they gave us an explanation in two stages. I think because they randomly actually seemed to care what people are saying about them, especially given that some of the drivers were being a little bit vociferous about it. But not long after the initial start, they explained their position that they'd been a power outage and then later on they explained that basically there was now there is no power to the stark entry where the race director actually starts the race or to the lighting gantry. That provides the lights. So the only way they could start the race was to run it behind the safety car. But obviously because there is shall we say a little bit less out and communication from the FIA during the race to broadcast this year as a result of some of the stupidities that happened last year. This wasn't made clear and nature a pause of vacuum. Into that asylum speculation rushed in. So a lot of people were thinking, well, you know, they've bottled it, what's going on. But yeah, it literally, they could not start it in the normal fashion. So what we got wasn't ugly compromised, but it was all we were going to get. And then apparently later on, power was restored, but they then didn't want to. They didn't feel confident enough in the robustness of the systems to do the restart after the mix Schumacher induced red flag. So they started that off behind the safety car because as of the beginning of 2020, there is a stipulation in the rules that you can have a standing restart rather than a rolling restart, but they thought they couldn't rely on the systems that they didn't want to basically press the button and it to say computer says now because that would be a little bit embarrassing. So just go with a safety car rolling restart is the safest option. We did hear a bit of team radio today saying come on let's get this race started. These conditions are fine. What's your opinion on that from what you witnessed firsthand today? Well, we're not the ones driving the cars. I think they're the ones we have to have to ask we're not the ones risking our lives and obviously going out there and it was, but it's a very valid question it's something that I put to most of the drivers in the media pen after the race, and there was a mix of views..

"Well, two red flags over an hour delay at the start and hopefully to have F one's finest live from somewhere in Monaco, having dried out to join me on the podcast that I to answer those questions and a lot more as well. Joined by Luke Smith and Stuart coddling as well. Where do you get to watch the Monaco Grand Prix from, by the way? Nowhere that glamorous as with all the other races you're in the media center, which a lot of people don't really know. I got this amazing view of the track or anything at the majority of them. It is kind of like a big classroom, lots of screens up with various bits of data and wild feed and whatever. But window next to our desks, which were saved by one of our colleagues very early on Thursday morning. Overlook sell our ass. So you could basically see all the cars coming through there. So it did mean when we hardly needed a picture for talk about the red flag for The Rain delay. Our colleague Alex Karl zebs run over and get a snap. Some expert photography from Alex there. Yeah, it's one of those, one of those things with the job that it's not like you're watching it from the peak of turn one or anything like that. And hugely uncomfortable chairs as well. I don't want to be one of those people that moans. But you're going to be. Well, I've started. So I'll finish. Second only to the funny little footstools of Le Mans in terms of uncomfortableness. Are described them as almost vindictive in the assault on your posterior. We have tens of thousands of people listening to this who really have no sympathy for you on a free trip to Monaco. So should we also dig into the greed and venality of some of the other people in the press room because the house kindly lay out a selection of cheese rolls and cheese and ham rolls, but when the cardboard box containing these things are placed out, there is the most incredible stamped. You know like that bit in The Lion King, where the horde of wildebeest stampede. It's like that for the sandwiches. And you see these people moving away from the scene of the crime and it is a crime. Let me tell you ladies and gentlemen. It is a crime. They come away with armfuls of sandwiches. So those of us who've been actually dare I say it concentrating on our work rather than keeping at least one eye on the chemicals table. Go without so this morning we stopped off at a hypermarket so that we could get our lunch in early and avoid the rush. This concludes my complaint about the monarch press room. Sergio Pérez won the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix ahead of Ferrari's Carlos Sainz and Max Verstappen finishing off the podium early leader Charles Leclerc coming home fourth once again victory at home evading him. George Russell from Mercedes in 5th Lando Norris in 6th and I will work our way down the finishing order as we get on through the podcast. So one of the questions we want to ask is how Perez won that race. And we'll get into some of the details at the start and the delay and all those things in the moment. From what was it looked comfortable watching on TV, a comfortable lead for leclerc. Can you explain how Red Bull strategy did that look or is it a case of how Ferrari strategy let down leclerc and he didn't even finish on the podium today? Yeah, it's definitely a bit of both. There are quite a few factors that played into that Perez was the first of the lead drivers to make the switch from the wets to the intermediates. He came in on lap 16. That was followed by leclerc and Verstappen, two laps later. And then science what he wanted to do and he quite early on he made clear as far as I don't want to take any intermediate so I just want to push the wets right the way through until the track is dry enough slick. So you have these interesting little different strategies playing out between the lead drivers there. But it was just, I mean, Paris coming in earlier. That really, really, that swung the race massively in his favor, I believe it was a 7 second swing on one of the laps that absolutely just wiped away the clerk's lead because the intermediates were absolutely the right tyre to be on and that allowed him to really carve into the advantage that the clerk had built up. And yeah, that compromised clerk massively the clerk struggled he hit traffic with the Alex Alban or no one of his art laps as well, which also didn't help matters. But I think for Chekhov, it was just a really clever strategy from red blood, and they saw the way things were going. They decided yeah, let's bring you on to the inters. They then recognize that the tracker dried so quickly, you had to get onto the slicks quite soon after. So yeah, I think it was some clever work from them Ferrari definitely through this away. But I think that paras and Red Bull, they recognize that they had to react quickly that has to be on the front foot and I think they're really were with that. So it definitely very different, I think, the way both teams are executed their races, Red Bull, it was all quite smooth, very serene, very, very clinical Ferrari we had some panic setting in the Charles clerk over the radio at one point was told. I don't know, stay out stay out, and he's like, well, it's too late. I'm already in the pit lane. So yeah, things like that that were the difference today, but yeah, that early start from Paris to get the undercut plus leclerc hitting the traffic plus, look at that, then I have to come in for a second time in the space four laps. It just all fell Paris way. There was a tiny element of luck for Perez as well, because when he came out of the pits his first stop, he.
"monaco" Discussed on The Autosport Podcast
"The reasoning being, you don't get to speak to the referees in football, which is fair enough pastry, but whatever it's always nice to get more accountability because it's all very, very important. But yeah, back to Carlos Sainz. Yeah, that's gesture that he deserved penalty or he's going to have trouble coming in his way. I think it's way off the mark because as he said in the press conference, it was as he turned right into Portia that the yellow certainly the yellow marker board lights up and I think if you watch onboard just ahead, I think the yellow flag is waving, but the fact that as he comes around the corner and he's looking at the next apex. It's all at one. He said, you know, he's certainly with the marker board. It comes on as he's already got the steering lock fully applied. So nothing he could do he saw the two things effectively at the same time, the yellow, the crashed Perez, and basically, I think science thought he could just about get through, but then he as he just agitates, just gets on that brake pad a little bit too hard, spun the car around. And yeah, caused more damage to Perez's car, he does think though that the Red Bull should be fine to raise tomorrow. That is some good news for Sergio Pérez and Red Bull, but one Red Bull driver who wasn't really a much of a factor in the poll fight was Max Verstappen. I think all weekend. It seemed like Paris just had that little bit of an edge over him. We saw that in final practice, Perez led the way there, then throughout qualifying, always seems like Paris were just a little bit of a step ahead of max. We've talked about the chemistry, and I think one of the big narratives going into this weekend has been team orders after what happened in Spain and for Red Bull, are they already putting all their eggs in one basket with Max Verstappen as though that was ever really a question anyway. But for max, knowing we've seen over the past few races it tends to be the Ferrari excel over one lap in qualifying, but then the Red Bull's race pace is so much better, but this is Monaco, you don't overtake it. It is sometimes decided on a Saturday. How much trouble really are rebel indie thing with their only third and fourth on the grid. And for max, how much for a big fight back is it going to require from P four to get up there and battle the clerk at the very front? Yes, I think he's already hoping that it's going to rain tomorrow. I think Charles Leclerc would like a nice dry race because this is we mentioned that that Monaco curse that he's got hanging over him not that curse is a really cool but you know he's just mounting circumstantial evidence with all the run of incidence he's had at home. But yeah, so Verstappen needs rain I don't think we can be under any illusions that if it were a dry race to the finished Red Bull would if they don't overtly swap the positions they'd find some way to engineer it. The risk they play there is that Perez is not an idiot. There's going to come a point where it's just going to get too much this constantly having to cede way to max despite the fact that it is clearly the Verstappen team. But anyway, let's cross that bridge when we come to it as I'm sure Red Bull would do tomorrow. But yeah, with the Ferraris and the rebels the long run pace in practice. I mean, long run pace in Monaco practice is a bit of a misdemeanor because you say Luke starting on pole position effectively wins you the race. You know, there's no reason to suspect why leclerc won't win tomorrow, but then he could say that for so many other races he's had here. So he'll have to deal with whatever the curse that doesn't exist those at him, but yeah, with what little race running was done. Ferrari looked pretty good. So many different factors and reasons why reasons why is we're overtaken by a ring in patient motorcyclist. We're still once again, it took us, I used to get out of the media car park. Leaving Monaco tonight, thanks to the F two cars they need to come back and we now stuck in another tunnel on the motorway to nice, which is where we're staying in a very nice Airbnb. It's got an excellent view over nice. But yeah, anyway, just very quickly going back to the race race, where I do have a certain slight edge, a couple of attempts a lap, but too difficult to read if that's going to definitively transfer over to tomorrow, but if science is second out of Sandoval and the clubs first, there's no way Max Verstappen is speaking, Charles Leclerc. And did the Red Bull guys they talk about why Verstappen has been slipping behind Paris this week and why is Perez managed to qualify max? Yeah, so basically Verstappen has said that effectively the Red Bulls just seem to be under steering a bit more than he would ideally like around here. And also he just wasn't happy with the balance, that sort of saps the confidence. But he finally found the balance and the feeling that he was after right at the end of Q three right on that final interrupted run and it's really interesting. If you watch the sex of times, he just said his best time of qualifying right at the point for the red flags come out. He still was a tenth down on leclerc and if the club was expecting to make the gains that he would, I still think Verstappen was fighting for second and he himself acknowledged that, but it's really interesting because he's absolutely furious when he comes across. He's the next car behind science. When he comes across the two, he's like, oh, this isn't fair. This isn't fair. And he said afterwards, you know, this really needs looking at this, you know, because he's point is as happened with leclerc, not that leclerc did it on purpose. You could secure the provisional poll as Michael Schumacher has attempted to do or did badly crash and secure yourself that pole position. So Verstappen's like we need to look at this. We need to look at this, but basically the understeer with the Red Bull. He said that Perez can just just likes it a bit more and it's helping him a lot around here whereas Verstappen, we know response a strong front end and then hang on to the rear ace is what makes him such a joy to watch because he's so exciting behind the wheel because of the way the car behaves in his hands. So yes, that's the difference to Verstappen, but as I think I do get the genuine sense he thinks that it should be him on the front row of the grid alongside alongside a cloud tomorrow. And I'm sure max will be hoping for a little bit of rain. I think I'm seeing varying percentages as to what chances we're going to get. But another person wanting some rain is Lewis Hamilton. He will start 8th on the grid. He was asked if he's going to do a rain dance, he was like, no, I don't dance. I won't be dancing. But then he said, I would actually like a bit of rain maybe to help him from PH George Russell in 6th for Mercedes..
"monaco" Discussed on The Autosport Podcast
"Well, as we know, all eyes will be on tomorrow. Tomorrow is what usually counts, although there is rain predicted on Sunday, so we could see a bit of a mixed up race. If you were listening to the Sunday Night podcast after the Spanish Grand Prix, you might have heard Luke and I, having a bit of a discussion about Monaco, I am have not historically been a fan of racing here. I think I've described it as almost like a messy divorce between Monaco and Formula One in that Formula One has gone in a direction that's different from what's needed to have good racing around here. Now, I went trackside for the very first time and I can definitely say unquestionably, I have never witnessed Formula One, like it. It will be moments that stick with me for sure, but what I'm always concerned about is it's all well and good at saying that. We get amazing access. The experiences that you don't get at home and isn't translated at home and I know that the TV broadcast is something that is criticized a lot around monetary because it's a different company that usually takes over it's a local monegasque company that is running the world feed this weekend. So I do want good racing. I want it to be a really, really good weekend. Not just because I'm here and I would like to experience it for myself. But Luke, what are you expecting from tomorrow? The arguably the most important day in Monaco. Most important day in Monaco, but I think also one of the most exciting days of the entire Formula One season. I think that when you hook a lap up in Monaco, I say it's like I know this, but I don't. It's the drivers of who I've spoken to. They all say that when you hook up a lap in Monaco, it really is unlike anything else. It's an amazing exhilarating experience, gasly said that he can sometimes do an absolutely perfect lap, and it only be good enough for 5th or 6th. So he said, if it's the fight for pole position, I can't imagine what that buzz is like. Fernando Alonso he said he's had perfect laps here and they've not been his poll app. So it is, I think it's why you see the drivers at the absolute best and peak of their powers in formula, which is very exciting. But as you do, rightly, say, Jess, that does not lend itself to exciting race. I think that's something that we've all come to expect in Formula One over the years. We know that Monaco Sundays and maybe not the highlight of the season. But yeah, who knows a bit of rain could spice things up potentially Pierre gasly he spoke on Thursday said that a bit of rain he just thinks of 1996 when Olivier panis on Felicia, so who knows maybe some drama can strike once again, but yeah, I think that as much as Monaco Sunday may be a bit of a snooze fest, I think Monaco Saturday is one of those must watch spectacles in Formula One. It really is an incredible scene to see the drivers of the absolute limit and going for it around these streets. All right, well I will the jury's out until Sunday. Maybe you're here. Well, you will hear of it because both Luke and I will be on the review podcast on Sunday, but until then, stay tuned, we'll be back tomorrow to give you all the happenings from qualifying around here tomorrow night and until then we'll see you next time..

Well, I mean, with a few exceptions, no one has said anything. You know, I watched that hearing with Merrick Garland, not one Republican senator, confronted Merrick Garland about what his DOJ has been doing to over 650 Americans. I appreciate what Tom cotton said to Merrick Garland. I appreciate that every Republican senator asked him about the letter that he allegedly wrote, which I'm not even sure that Merrick Garland is in charge of the Justice Department. He believe it's least the Monaco who is the deputy. It's really wrong in the show. We know that. But look, Lisa Monaco almost got a unanimous vote from Republicans in the U.S. Senate, including Tom cotton, they put a known Barack Obama loyalist, someone who was a collusion perpetrator who said nothing but horrible things about Donald Trump for four years in between allow his presidency and now Joe Biden's they confirmed her. Put her in charge of the Justice Department. What do they expect Lisa Monaco is going to do? Of course she's going to use every weapon at her disposal to go after

"I have literally walked across the entire country of monaco and it took me about an hour and that was taking my time. The corollary to being the smallest countries having the highest population density with a population of over thirty seven thousand people. It has a population density of around nineteen thousand people per square kilometer. The only other territory that has a higher population density is the chinese territory of macau that has a density of twenty one thousand people per square kilometer. There is pretty much no available land in monaco anymore. Which is one reason why. Land values in the country are so astronomical there's curly land reclamation project underway which will try to create an additional six hector's for apartment buildings and shops. Even though thirty seven thousand people live in monaco. Most of them are not citizens of the country. There are only about nine thousand montagues citizens who live in the country and speaking of citizens of monaco. The official language of monaco is french but the national language is called montague ask. It's a dialect of ligurian which is a form of italian which is spoken in genoa and the surrounding area. The other significant thing about monaco is that it has a lot of rich people. A full third of the country is millionaires. It has the highest per capita gdp of any country in the world at one hundred ninety thousand dollars per year. The poverty rate in monaco is officially zero with that much money. It also shouldn't come as a surprise that monaco is one of the safest countries in the world. The murder rate in monaco is zero. And there's one police officer for every one hundred people who live in the country also.

"Dot com slash skill share hundreds of years ago. The map of europe was much more complicated there were dozens of kingdoms and duchy's and principalities all over the place overtime however almost all of those tiny countries were absorbed into larger countries that we know today but not all of them did a small handful of very small countries managed through luck perseverance and diplomacy to remain independent. To the present day. I've previously known episodes on dora liechtenstein san marino and vatican city.

Monaco's contributor in canberra ardebili. Gary sent us. This report the news that ustralia is going to be getting nuclear-powered submarines came out of the blue five years ago. We signed an agreement with the french to provide us with diesel-powered submarines. It has since become clear that these technology would not be adequate to meet security challenges. Plus they wouldn't be delivered for almost twenty years at the same time. Need security partnership between australia. The us and uk was announced called aucas. All of this is pretty big knees. Even if you're not someone to spend a lot of time thinking about submarines the full details haven't yet been announced but it is clear that it's all about sending a strong message to china. Tensions between australia and china has been increasing over the past few years so this deal is all about australia. Proving to beijing that it has big and powerful allies that it can rely on but it will get australia. Offside with other friends new zealand and pacific countries are avowedly anti nuclear. Oh new zealand has already said it won't allow the subs in its waters. Australia is a signatory to the nuclear nonproliferation treaty.

For Beard's we try to do a different one every night, but I'm probably going to start running out of him after some point. All right. Frank. We got you on the show tonight and every once in a while we do some industry interviews we people on who work in the industry in different realms and everything we've had trailer editors. We've had audio people we've had musicians we've had directors and producers. We've had a lot of different people on the show. So. Give us a bit of a background about what you do where you work how long you've been there and you know anything else. You'd think people would enjoy hearing about you your job and and you know we could get into some fun stories and after that well, I've been at Warner Brothers studios for thirty years. This is my thirtieth year. Wait thirty, thirty years. They don't give people that much time for murder. Thirty years and I actually in the summertime I keep everybody. Cool. So we take care of the stages we take care of the office buildings we take our sound stages I I did Ellen for like ten years controlling her temperature I in the wintertime we take care of the heat keep everybody warm and that's what I've been doing for the last thirty years. Yeah and you've been I. Know You've been nights for a long time and that's like when people would shoot most often or yes. A lot of long hours Jim I worked seventeen years at night and I remember for example when. Brooke Shields had her pilot suddenly. Susan. On bring anybody remembers that show. But yeah, I remember that show. Yeah. So I remember they shot the pilot and then they wanted to recast one of the actors it's been. So long I don't remember but I stay two weeks till six in the morning. A Lot. That's one thing about working nights in these shows you're gonNA. Stay a long time with brick shields the one in like blue lagoon the. And Blue Lagoon she was. Married to a Agassi the tennis player. Okay. And I remember seeing him a lot on the stage always had his tennis racket in the stage. It was funny. He always used to swinging inside the stage while she was shooting was. The hitting hitting a ball just swinging it no wants a hit a ball. He was just swinging. It is practicing I. Guess that was like in his prime I. Guess. Yeah whenever you need to I guess it's like a gull for just dislike shoot blanks, golf balls or something you know exactly but no, but he was he was really cool and. One thing about working in, Hollywood, is you work a lot of hours, lots of our. Our friends and West Wing and they'd be there to four or five and Gilmore Girls I. Mean I was there to four or five in the morning every single night especially like well, for example, if they have a call time at six on Monday, two days going to be eight o'clock and then Wednesday is going to be ten o'clock and then Thursday's going to be you know noon and then Friday comes and their start time is to always do fourteen hours usually. So, I was there like every Friday I knew was there till four or five or six in the morning? And the actors and everybody there the whole time there the whole time. To work harder something and it's like a hard work. Well, it is. It is very hard because I remember once Gilmore girls were shooting. So I went over to my buddy and he was a sound engineer, the sound mixer at the time and I said Hey much longer got goes we'll be done eleven o'clock. So I go over there eleven o'clock he goes now we're still shooting I ended up staying till five in the morning. One of the actors couldn't get his line and it was very basic line and I remember he. Producer. He goes. Okay that's it. We're done just printed whatever it takes. That's good enough. We're going home I was there to five in the morning they're supposed to wrap at ten thirty. In the morning. That's good enough. That's what he said. He was just so fed up because it kid couldn't get his line I mean it was like and everybody on the show was really getting frustrated and they said that's it. That's enough. I mean, I'm like craft, service and food and everything is going the whole night. Oh Jeez Jim off while let's see friends used to ship in a while when friends had their audience. I think it was on Friday or Thursday it's been so long but they would ship in philly cheese steaks from. Chicago Chicago like pizza from. The. They had the best craft Sir I mean I'm not exaggerating I. Eat like a king go in there. Oh has some food Chinese food. philly cheese steaks You you'd be surprised what kind of food they had some of these shows and this is friends. This is friends Oh man, and so the main reason you're staying so you can help shut down the stage at when everything's over is with the heat and air conditioning. Well, you gotTA consider though With the middle of the summertime, these stages with these lights before they had led lights, they didn't have led now they got led lights that run a lot cooler than the old lights used to run. But yeah, those stages the gut to one hundred degrees if the air was a non Oh man because of the lighting. Yes. Because of the lighting I'm not exaggerating wow. Yeah it they'll stages got hot.
