"Musk going to be the next to pull embarrassing he doesn't want to be. Ceo tesla. yeah so. This is a book which is written by tim. Higgins is respected wall street journal. Reporter comes out next month called power. Play tesla elon. Musk in the bed of the century. And i'm sure it's well reported but somehow somehow they got Tim got somehow he got a story that there was a conversation when apparently e lan and tim cook met to talk about apple. Buying tesla there was a conversation in which elon musk says. Okay but i have to be the ceo of apple. And in which. Tim cook said f. you and hung up on him now. None of this is credible at all. Both parties have denied it. In fact both. Tim antion said you know what we've never even talked to each other. We've never even met before hesitant was yeah but before this book came out. That was like what they were saying on. Both i think he in his oddly out of character for him in being such a reticent fellow did mention that boasted that oh well apple had reached out to apple years ago. They could have bought the tire company for pennies. But he wouldn't even return my phone call. Yeah Is i mean would kind of make sense if apple wants to Do what apple cart that they kind of need. A car manufacturer I don't think they wanna get in that business. Maybe maybe they think they do. I just want it to be someone in germany. Not yeah. I think we'd be mistake to pick to get in bed with ilan and i'm just saying that comes and everybody else back. It sounds one tweet. One tweet and your entire retirement fund is like okay because i'm working till seventy four. I just think that the the the idea that so not even possible. I mean th th th. The idea that that tim cook would say that. To another ceo of any kind It just steve jobs might have said they said that steve jobs said that we like. Oh yeah that makes sense. But tim cook. That's tuesday jon. Apple to tesla with doj coin. Because that would have. You'd like. I believe mac report says and it is a rumor. That apple is expanding. Its california self driving test fleet to sixty two cars and ninety six thousand nine cars in ninety two drivers Maybe they're looking at the. Maybe they're looking at the actual filing. Maybe it isn't quite a rumor that is down though from october. Twenty twenty when apple. They reported that apple had one hundred fifty four driver permits so it is not an increase. Yeah did you know that. The apples actually filed a the Government agency has has a voluntary voluntary program for companies that are developing self driving cars To say file report explains what you're testing procedure is all you're using certification. Play tesla has not filed such a report but apple has yeah good for africa. Found very interesting. Yeah this from the california department of motor vehicles. Collisions apple has had three course way. Mos had one hundred eleven. That's waymo That's why veritas him video so they're fine. Yeah i you know and also related to how many miles driven and forth But i think it's interesting. Mean is no question because of these filings. That apple is absolutely in a working on self driving vehicles and they have increased. The number of cars decreased the number of drivers but increase the number of cards centered on going to sorry. I just just quickly. And it is actively evolving. It's not as though they are building a platform and just for testing software and right offers. The only thing they're telling you. Do there was an up to someone. there's on one of the autonomous vehicle blogs had updated photos of a apple car citing just a few weeks ago vich. They compared to a previous sighting of about a few months earlier noting that are new sensors on the side of the car. That weren't there before. Change some sensors that are on the top. So it is. It is a hardware project as much as is our software project which would not have that money on. I think also you're kind of waiting for the market to get to a certain point when it comes to self driving when it comes to you know apple has time you know. They don't need to make the money. They're not a car manufacturers so they can work out a lot of details And be figuring those things out. I mean i think that as a user i when i thought google put a car with no driver seat like just like. You're just going to get gonna drive around. Yeah i thought that was kuku now. I wouldn't buy a self driving car that actually had make makes me. I just want to get into byles. It takes me to the place. Don't want go well. that's that's the that's the ideal but there's a there's a. I think it's bad that for the entire For the entire platform for the entire tire industry. That tesla is the name. That's most closely associated with thomas vehicles. Because they're the ones they're the one company that is absolutely not doing that. They're also the company that is doing the most squirrelly things to get these cars on the road. You've intel you of apple you have google. All of whom are doing real indepth for real Investigations going very very cautiously and making sure that they're always doing things that are fully in line with federal and state guidelines but then you have tesla which are actively saying one thing when they're speaking to california transportation regulators but saying another thing or okay alon but but still When they're talking to the public there's they keep saying they keep talking talking to the transcript of the conversations with the california state regulators saying. No no no. This is level to driving only believe me if we ever do level three or above. We will not do that until we talked to you guys and get the proper permissions and certifications. But meanwhile here's any they have data people driving beta software that is doing self driving on for on like city regular residential roads. Not just a lane assist on highways. And that's that's sort of playing cute with the rules is a. I think. Reckless and be just makes me not respect. How approaching the enormity of this problem to era. Sorry no place. I was gonna say self. Driving is a lot of fun when you're sitting at headquarters watching your car moved three inches in the arizona. Desert very different. When you live with andy. I live and snow is indistinguishable from walls. You very seldom see people doing all these demos in the middle of a boston montreal winter. So there's there's a long way to go and apple has quite a bit runway to get there How do we feel about spatial audio..

Perseverance Rover, Ingenuity Helicopter, and the Search for Ancient Life on Mars

"On April 6th in this desolate Martian crater 170 million miles from Earth. Perseverance posed for a selfie with ingenuity. The little helicopter it had just dropped off. Two weeks later. The rovers cameras recorded ingenuity is historic First flight hovering 10 ft. Off the ground for 30 seconds. It may not look like much, but for those who work so long to make it happen. It was a reason to rejoice. Project manager Mimi on led the team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California that's been working on ingenuity for six years. How hard is it to fly a helicopter in Mars? Very, very, very hard. We really truly started with the question of is it possible? A lot of people thought it could not be done because it's really counterintuitive. I mean, you need atmosphere for the place to push atmosphere to get lived. The atmosphere on Morris is completely different than the world atmosphere at Mars is so thin. I mean the room we're in, right. It's compared to that It was 1% of the atmospheric density over there, so The question of really Can you generate enough lift, you know, to really build to lift up anything. That was a fundamental question. In subsequent flights. Ingenuity has gone higher and farther, traveling more than a mile in all over the surface of Mars. It is a triumph not only for NASA, but for its partners in the private sector, who helped make various parts of the helicopter. Don't Let it go. Don't freak out. Matt Keenan has a history of making unusual things that can fly as an engineer at a company called AeroVironment, which produces drones for military and civilian use. I mean, that's incredible 10 years ago for a military research project, Keenan and his team created this robotic hummingbird, which has a tiny camera on board. Whoa! Oh, there it is. Oh, my God. That's amazing. Keenan, an engineer, Ben Pipe Enberg led the AeroVironment team that created ingenuity is rotors motors and landing gear. Why was this so challenging because it has to be a spacecraft as well as an aircraft. And and flying it as as an aircraft on Mars is pretty challenging because of the density of the air That's similar to about 100,000

"At a minimum. They're Communist sympathizers. You doubt me? BLM black lives matter. You know it's a It's a terrorist group. That's a fact on them that I'm not gonna debate that. It's a terrorist group. The same tactics terrorists use burning down cities attacking people. Motor, you know, using political ideology to attack political opponents. I was attacked by them. I don't know if I don't think I've ever told the story on the radio, but leaving not physically, I'm gonna be. I don't do hyperbole like Joe Biden, who says it's not hyperbole. I was leaving the Republican National Convention at the White House. When President Trump accepted the nomination. He was kind enough to invite me and my wife. They followed us all the way back to the hotel, threatening to rape my wife Make me watch. They were going to beat the crap out. It was a whole bunch of bluster. Garbage. I don't ever do anything because they're big boys bags, but they do threaten you. And then you know when they burned, they attack impacts never by themselves, you know, because they're s'mores roasting wussies at home, But when they're around a group of their pact friends, they come out. Like terrorist savages, and they attack people. But you know, the BLM terrorists Sorry to get off on a tangent. They were talking about communists in the Democrat Party. BLM aligns themselves largely with the Democrat Party. They pretend not to. They pretend to be anti establishment. Make no make no mistake there. Communists just like their Democrat brethren. Well, they proved it yesterday. Black lives matter, and their official blue checkmark Twitter account put out a statement. Of condemnation on what's going on in Cuba. You're like, Oh, you probably listen home like Wow, that's really nice of black lives matter.

This is off the rails bit about the plan questions but something like that for young athletes like. There's obviously the training right but like something like lower dogs or a sport the way you make it a sport. What are your thoughts on that. I love it. And i do think there is a superiority. There compared to yet destroying touch the ram touched the backboard one. Just because it's more fun to to have success in the training right but then also there's this this component of it's not like a workout right. Where it's i've i've had this run. Training athletes honored kind of look at everything they're doing. I think they should get some junk reps in in going up hitting the vertex is just not as fun as dunking. you know. it's not. And i think just having that bond even that kind of creative like ideas based like oh this or i'm gonna i'm gonna try to don't one leg or whatever like having that kind of fun created environment. Deathly makes a difference for yet. Just motor learning side of things in the motivation side of things. Like yeah definitely like in the one on one training transacts like view just talent someone to go hit the vertex. Let's like let's say ten foot for ten times you know just not. This is not as good so. Yeah i definitely love the low rim dunking approach. Yeah even four people not small players. Yes i agree i. I was watching my some neighbor kids in the backyard. They have an adjustable hoop and they put it down like you know. These kids are like ten and eleven. They put it down to like. I don't know five six feet and they're trying to dump it out just thinking to myself. This is where it all starts. Non-judgmental it's and i think about the non-judgmental too. I mean i. I beat myself up. Training for years in the sense like l. ahead was the rim it's like am i getting higher on the rim. Am i not a good day. Was this a bad day. Even back when i was sixteen or seventeen and able to start dunking and things. That would be like you walk in the gym jimmy. You're not feeling it's like. Aw man but if you can have a rim and it's eight and you can just try to do something new or something. Then it's fun again. And it's i think for developmental as makes so much sense

You should have stayed But i was thinking about getting the hell out of bed before the traffic traffic But then i had another chance to contact ninety five when i had Yet shot half alesia. Dr didn i and so on the racists. Where i wasn't driving i would assume But then are on the saturday. I'd be in the years comfortable on the sunday. The bbc books. So that's where i have. I learn to work with married over an an understand television show that perhaps ended my phone on career early because if at the end of ninety six brundle stopping formula one driving. He's going to become a common tyrone on tv and it kinda turned It's interesting isn't it. How life works. Is you never quite round the corner of the mari was very Is well known for his marines. Which i'm sure anyone listening watching a real ten just off the top of the head of the ads. I mean you'll sort of developing a few you'll sell the the brundle 'isms they're not marias seen Hugging the a favorite grounded in bits and pieces of that it must be quite satisfying. Is this a sign that the public is a sign of endearment from the public in this world of social media in kind of a sort of hatred. Yes it is lovely when people come up to you and say how much you've given them over the years were wedding. That used to be allowed to come up to An approach in an airport or a underground in london or something but Let's hope we get back to those days. But yeah the reason is is because huma is a great way of communicating and one liners people remember. One line is the putman and relevant to what's going on track. They'll talk about it. They'll they'll occasionally. I'll get replayed back to me and obviously they. They can chinese whispers. They ended up being different to the word. You use meaning quite something else. But it is. And i've also noticed the people have very different sense of humors of course and they remember completely different things but it is. You gotta get information over bite size pieces. Little shiny magpie pieces that people wanna grab and take away with them. Because if you do a three minute monologue on how peretti ties work or don't and the meaning of life they just people's heads just turn off to you gotta give them the information in and bite sized bits. The obviously one of the lodge sort of things nine for his the gridlock Which i think kind of it wasn't a hugely plan saying it just seems to be developed. I think you said it makes us to make you nervous. Does it still make you nervous. Not section eight does. It's the only thing ready that gives me so. The live television excites me. So i always think is about thirty percents exciting to be on the grid with with live television as a with being a driver and often we've got two or three people talking are s while we're while we're doing the grid Somebody giving me a hard countdown producing and somebody else saying. Saying you know charlie humming. Talk up the front gun talk to them. And then i gotta find my next day my go to think of a question. Go to listen to the onset because that's the biggest crime if they say something really big can you. You didn't want a listing and workout where. I'm going to go next. So i like that challenge and it makes me nervous. Because it's eight nine minutes of live television unscripted unrehearsed and just go. Everybody might just sit back and wait for me to look a complete idiot in front of millions of people around the world which frequently do so it does make me nervous but mostly because i it smiletree go. I do not recognize that person interrupts. Three will champions having a conversation together. Enjoying the grade and i go barging in and an interrupted or some movie star. Just want to talk to me. Awesome football agents. Only speak spanish or something like that. But i had some classically good moments on the great and some classically classically bad ones. But i've never watched one. I hate i could better. What should on the telly anyway. I've i've never said this. So far through this pandemic. But i'm really pleased at an after at moment really pleased but by equally. I'll be really pleased when i'm allowed to do again talking about what does jensen. Dc story about serve making you watch a growing profits on my second but as one of the wonderful lines i found. This must be you on a grid walk and you said there's a story that justin bieber might be on the grid so to avoid it. If we get jobs something. I found the lines. One hundred zero without but if it is wonderful yeah is i get cheeky down. I get ready ready cheeky And i think there is that it is that silence i need. I need to fail if you just if you just practiced talking for nine minutes with not knowing any particular it's going to happen. Next is quite a long time..

I was <hes> two point seven poll so I was delighted without you know for two minute. Lop Up is more than happy with that and yeah I think finished five or six guys so I wasn't last but it was more just getting rained and driving relatively well for my standard not making any mistakes.

He thinks you're looking for this. Series are the things that you haven't done that. You want to do or the more I'd I'd love to go back to the moment because you learn so much and you feel that you barely scratched the surface I thought might have done an antique box and then I can move on but it really I call the Pug we learn so much that you want to play all the things that you learn that experience but top of them on Bathurst twelve hour nurburgring twenty four am..

This is something I'll always remember what privileges well because so many people want to do not not just your average fan who goes there and I wonder what we like to be the track but you know really high level professional drivers who've dedicate life this profession and they still have the opportunity to do it so here's me some dumpty that used to ride bikes.

The biggest thing is the ability to focus on ability to blockade distraction so it's exactly same. I'm like in the Kieran or the Kilo at the start. If you start dwelling on my win what went by lease he's the he's a fast a day or you know conditions or the crowd or as soon as you're looking at things that have obviously no banning on your own performance.

You know if I get this wrong over the might the oil here what happens if I had well disaster as soon as you dwell on the things that could go wrong. It's it can have massive increases your chance of doing that so you know even even a mountain biking if you're going down a hill the key thing is always look exactly what you want to go. Look uh-huh things you're trying to avoid which is the same much exactly so you focus on the lane you increase your vision you try and look through the corner on these things that new from cycling I passed across the motor sport but they're completely different skills so you know it's Z.. Come into it and you have the competitive instinct you help the desire to go fast. You have the desire to win but yeah you learn very quickly that it's going to be a you're starting at the very bottom level but that's part of what dreamy to quite enjoyed the thought of a new challenge the every time I get in the car. I'm going to be significantly better whereas on the bike you were spending a whole year or four year cycle trying to improve maybe half a tenth of a second you know the margins were so small. You're so close to the top level that you didn't have the headroom to improve but in the CAR RPG go a long way to improve which is which is good and did you were you surprised by those of the physicality of racing for for lots of your lost. My friends always ask why to racing drivers have to be so fat because they ultimate sit in a car turn it. It's I think it depends hands on the type of car. I think it depends on your level so you could get somebody who has huge amount expedience and skill and they could go right and with I you know barely raising the heart rate and barely.

Mechanism forgiveness back into racing ninety autograph or something didn't you wrote across? Yeah. That's right. You know? I always I I was lucky where I was brought up in my dad was he was a builder. He was involved in construction, and we had a massive yard Tomas of concrete yard. So I always had access to vehicle should be a van Faulk left or whatever. But as a kid, I love cars and was cars. So we had we had Many's had Ford cortina's, and I would just go dine there just Dr Ryan in the evenings for ours. You know as fast as I could. So I was always when I look back, and I was always developing my skills and my craft and then when I was fourteen there was an auto autographs club started up in imported iron.

And then you know, I have two boys nine that's what I said to them. You know, it's we go we go. I don't our carts.

As race in drove the let's let's let's go back to your day job. I mean hard to stop. He was was was some sort of a strong family connection with the sport back in the day. Or was it something you discover yourself as a kid yet from from. I was a kid and motor sport was was in three are high semi dad's. He rallied back in Northern Ireland and risked go-carts as alleman will know. My my mom did some co-driving for my does. But even before that's my grandfather marriages. Yeah. They the never seem to fall light. But you but before that McGrath father had at a real passion for for motorbike racing. Unday particularly road racing an airline, which is still a Muslim. And so I was brought up a local bike races my dad's sponsored local writers. He's he sponsored some local team Sunday. That was my mood sport education. You know, go into that l'amante t the north west two hundred and you know, just seeing that the spades. And the commitment of of of those writers, but I was always pushed away from from two ways. You know, we being involved in the sport. We saw the dangerous. We saw the accidents. You know, I remember only too well going to to the Royal Victoria hospital in Belfast to see Phillip McCallen when it come off the bike on. It was the closest thing I'd seem to to today on you know, his body was was in. Vets. And yeah and used to that that wasn't for me. So am I mean, how did you cut it until I suppose I hadn't really considered it? But you know, as as a kid that probably scared me on I thought I want to be I don't wanna be him. You know, I don't want to be in here. So so I have two brothers Sunday. My my older brother started started racing go karts cadet go-carts knots cornered in Northern Ireland. I Nazli followed them into the sport. Just just as a hobby just does. But if on something today at the weekends. How long was it before you? I mean, you you progressively coats ABI media pretty well. And goes get okay. I was an average Carter. Yeah. I was for me motor sports in those early years was was just a bit of fun. And I didn't take it seriously. It's all you know, I was I did my reacing, but I was more interested in just having a bit of player by with with the other kids. I was racing against and think carting back back when I did it. You know, that's you know, that's more than twenty years ago was wasn't as serious as as I say it is nigh, and yeah, it was just something today at the weekends with with the family. And you know, I was I think I won some. I won many racist. But I wasn't a top level Carter average. Oh. And by the way, I wouldn't really races. Yeah. Right. But one interesting story as you go karts can be quite fickle and unreliable and as a kid all you wanna do quiet and put some laps and keep going round and round, and what frustrates me the most was with the go carts was on the Saturday practice. Qualifying cart would be perfect. It would be singing. You would be. You'd be up the sharp end. You put it in in in the truck take it the next day. I wouldn't start wouldn't go. What's what's going on here? So it got me that much that after four years of carts said I can't take this anymore. That's I've I've had enough. I'm not enjoying this. So off I went to play golf. And the lasted all of six weeks. Slightly longer than not I wanted to do something completely different. And yeah picked up a set of golf clubs, son. And I really enjoyed it. I love you know, obviously, it's the polar opposite. I think of of motor sport. Bit taper. But you know, on we're blessed for some grit courses on clubs in in Arlon.

They have literally decades of modus boy experience, and I'm sorry to make the move sewn old and each of them as a worry had their own story driving career. So beings briefly as Cam was start with running down Stewart shoot start racing in the mid nineteen ninety s and formula Vauxhall had a few shunts, and then did quite well before he moved into sports 'cause he's done bridge GT. He's raced in America. He's competed at the montage four hours four times. Plus, he's also won titles in both the UK and European Radical categories Roger bramalea is very much child of radicals. But started on show over. So we'll talk about that later. He's been racing radicals for over a decade because he's got very little imagination anything else. He's been a champion in the UK and Europe. And now he works for the brand as a professional driver coach. And then Alex Mortimer was a successful British championship Carter before he moved into Porsche racing. He was British GT champion into. Thousand seven and then he moved into European GT's before going on to pay compete in the world endurance championship and also race at LeMond. So I wear all gathered here in motorsports London office to talk about how to get started in motoracing. How to do it? How not to do it? And we'll also talk about all of the pitfalls nervous. It can get caught in. Plus those surprise things that nobody actually tells you when you have a fever idea that starting racing campaign might actually be a good idea. So gents, I guess start with Africa driver Linden. You only had a couple of weeks to with radical to might your racing debut is that a particularly daunting task for somebody. That's never been in a car before. Then maybe a passenger now. And again, it was. Yeah. To be thrown in the deep end with an odds where you've never even been on track with anybody.

Faith in me that when I went out from my first test Donington, we Stewart, admittedly. He refused to get in the passenger seat with me. But it was such an experience that you just come econ. Imagine it until you actually sit in the car and just peddle faster and foster being told that you can do it is brilliant. And it was something that you wanted to do because it was quite not because your dad came along real family, February something you've been waiting quite a few years to actually get go about the nine who's counting.

"This is Freddie Spencer come into the last round of the two thousand eighteen Moto GP world championship in Valencia Spain. Now, this was always going to be an interesting weekend. And actually, I kind of look at it now because of is the last round and in the championships were already decided that it's that that raised that gives maybe someone the opportunity to get a win in that they wouldn't or hadn't so far some last chance opportunities if you haven't been on the podium this year to get on the podium, or maybe if you've never been on the podium before it's a great opportunity in the last round of the championship. And then of course, you have what is actually begin would begin the week after the two thousand nineteen testing in season. So it's it's exciting. And it's a race that I I've been to a couple of times and was down there for the race this year. Now, the weather was not that great. In fact, it was warmer and drier when. Are left London to good goods the plane down on on Thursday? But it's always was going to be exciting. And this weekend was certainly wise. Now, we as most of you know, if you watched it the weather was atrocious in many ways, there was really no opportunity to get any completely dry practice in. And so that puts a lot of a lot of pressure on the writers because and the teams in the motor GP class because they have to take advantage of of an opportunity if it is a little bit Dr which it was in in a couple of sessions to where they can get down and get a pretty decent time in. And but like I said because of the threat of rain you always have to be on top of your game. Now, I've ridden around ballooned see if you times they do a classic event there at the beginning of ever. Racing season the indefeasibly. I Amar Valencia classic. And and I wanna tell you something if you think it looks pretty tight on on TV. It is tight when you right around. And I've ridden the two fifty around there to phychi GP bike, and of course, five hundred three cylinder five hundred a few times. And it's a fun track to ride on. And and the reason why that that it is the way it is and shaped because the massive grandstands to get that effect of a stadium. And so the track was built with that in mind. And I think that it actually does a great job considering the modest space that have to work with. And so it's it's one of those tracks that you spent a great Bill dilatot thing, of course, accept them on the front straightaway. Either one side of the tar or the other. And so that really makes it critical in wet conditions that you got. Oh, really stay on top of your game, certainly the crew in and as to do your job is setting up to like Tron IX if you listen to the moti bikes on the front straightaway. You really don't even really here break traction that often the riders would feel it. But and certainly you can hear it's it's amazing. How proactive the electron IX are in that respect. But they still like I said have to be really careful and we saw that in the race of when they're carrying speed certainly on current corny entry. You're going to have some some crashes, and like I said because it is a track that you're either one side or the other and making the big, you know, in the sweepers. And then because there's not a whole lot of distance between most corners, the straight line is transitions from one side to the other. And so like, I say it really puts a lot of a lot of stress on the riders to really be on top of the game. One mean? Oh, that is is looking ahead making sure that they're really prepared and they have the right trajectory because rotting in the rang and carrying speed and trying to take some of the pressure off the load and is having the right trajectory, and and really also carry momentum. And Karen speed. Going into the weekend. Like said there was there was certainly a lot of riders that wanted in the season strong..

"I kinda like it in my head too. I mean, the first mobile phones had. Yeah. Yeah. Executive member of you wanna remember them. Just remember these PD don't remember for second battery life. That's one thing. But I mean competition, and that's two million. Brought I mean within four or five years we had friends this pagan the bathroom the week recycles. I mean, how long do you think is going to be before? Thanks, the comp- competitive element to form. The we have power powertrains at are actually, generally small compact and incredibly durable. Well, in that respect it's don't to the regulations, and then the appetite of people to get involved in it. So that was one of the major discussions about going into the generation to car so the season five car and also the generation three car the next one that will come along was do we want to open out in terms of relations? It's quite clear that there wasn't a big appetite for chassis development. Because is it relevant to electric cars road? Cars not really it at the namic, then it'd efficiencies irrelevant because if you've got Draghi car, then you use energy to fish. The straits efficient, but not don't force because we didn't want to get into situation where an essay we the collective teams. And manufacturers we. The that you basically would dynamically lead as opposed to drive train and electric motor lead. And so he brought it back to this particular point. And the the piece in between the battery then purely because of cost and also expertise, then we decided that was better to be white box. But a common battery forever white boxes and unbranded boot's common battery for everybody. And that is the stituation at the moment. What happens for that though the line? I think that could open up, but the ships, you know, it's forty years old, and it's not ready for that sort of explosion at the moment. And so therefore focused very much onto the electric drive train in their even year to year software development. Forget hardware software development would gaining a lot and we're able to the one I brought up at the lecture was actually printed last where with more power available with the same energy would able to go six laps longer. In comparison sees one and so they're going faster with more power. And they're you know, where the moment of energy nets meaning on software development. So therefore, there's there's a lot of gains to be made here, and it's a little bit like in my view, what it was the beginning of our diesel program where we were just on tapping the potential of it, and it was only when you go down and up the doors, and it was like Pandora's box away, and it's going to go in the same direction, but we have to keep control over the cost. Because as I said, it's still quite young with the old Cup. Virgins tell Angie reach into this point this now open a new door everyone's gonna blank canvass. It will be because we've also the open up of technology late brake by wire as an example. And as well, I think when you go back and being very honest voted season one season two predominantly teams and independent teams and season. Four five.

Anyway, when drive loaders come Alertus a A like. slow too soon. So that's how that all came about. And then of course, he came back to McConnell through Honda. Right. So the twenty five million didn't come from Marlborough. That there was no huge amounts of. Moneys to begin with it got to Manding towards the end of his career when I'm in your remembering those days, everybody was trained playing. Chess with engines and chassis and designers, and it was going all over the base hunter had offered. The engine. In a tortuous. You're gonna deal to Clara. Which included processed. I can't remember the exact details. But that's how it all came about. When we run a win the team run out of engines at one point. Because hundred pulled out into naughty naughty area. Correct. And. So wrong with stock with making making the best of a Cosworth that he could. And Senator I mean, this was the sort of five card trick. I'm not driving with you guys. The hundred till I've got the best engine. We can't get you. The best engine. Doesn't matter. I'm not driving. So which said, well, that's fine. How much you want to drives that was all about money in the end. We said they make. A million dollars a race. So that that that became the became rate. God, right. Where did the Penske tests come into the question from entropy? Asking how much involvement you hide in the? It was because is all more Penske was over at the end of the day. And I think Roger Roger Ron just rang. Roger and said, listen, I wanna. I wanna find I want to sit down a baseline for. Edwin IndyCar to see what he's like remember at that point in time. There was this tremendous pushing and shoving going on between Indy-Car and Formula one car. I mean full Indika was being written up on a regular basis as being the successor to former one. So you know, you had to react to that you had to. Make sure that Fulmer one got it's it's just as earth. So it's just you and Senate when to America oh, nine I know run run did a lot of pushing shoving on that as well. And Sam said at the end of that. I've learned what I need to know. What what does he mean? Void. But do you think whether we're gonna fall it? Simple as that. No signs involved during the. The heat of the Senate processed era McClellan, I mean, did you manage to maintain a good strong relationship with both of them? And if so how. Charm. Yes. I mean, I must say I'd feel quite comfortable if Allen PROST walk in here. Now, we'd be oh friends. I mean, we speak in a regular basis when I get dragged along though, former erasers. Friends. Senna absolutely friends. Absolutely. How did you keep yourself away from the politics? Politics between who between an Allen oversee the reach the point where they weren't speaking to each other and communicating by their engineers who. That was quite easy. You just say, listen, that's your problem. An and it really wasn't a problem. You know, they couldn't talk to each other. Then fine. Moving forward to when Marlboro and McLaren split how. Strange situation than when he had run heart west kind of the end of the phone, and you hadn't furry basically signed a ready to go out of that conversation. Go wrong. I suspect it would be quite easy from say, I'm leaving. He'll say, okay. It was it was it was a bit of a non Schwarzenegger. He's the baby. Yeah. It was that. I mean, I knew he he had Akron plane up to Germany literally an hour after I told him. It was the end of the road. Simple as that. I was always going to be very there.

"And I think it was a handful. So he said I'd love to come in and driver drive. Mclaren go nice why? 'cause McLaren wasn't any any better. I think a lot of rumors sprung out of that. Did he get they didn't sign him in seventy seven seven. Why did we? Yes. Patrick Tam by simple as that. Yeah. We were looking for more European better known driver. Remember Bill never that point. Nobody knew who he was from a former three Dr. Did you James tell you about Jill did that's an interesting story because James and Ellen Jones went to drive in a former Atlantic race. Yep. Things drivers to for money. Went to drive in formula. Grace to our Rivera. In Canada, and this bloat Vilna absolutely blew the pair of the month, two world champions got zapped by this Canadian. Nobody heard of and anyway, James who. Was always interested in young up and coming drivers. It was his Hopi almost said to me when he got aches. And you should look at that guy. Just fantastic. Believe me, he's fantastic. He's both Jones. And I in a. So did James note come to you rather than the team? Well. We we were the team. I mean, we're we will we worked. We all worked as a team. The the the team is a team in the sponsors sponsor, and we we knew we had a collective job to do moving forward. A few years. You said that. Keeping own young drivers bit of a Hobie for James. I mean I worked with them quite a bit during the nineteen eighties. When he was looking after going, how can McNish people that the mole Junius? Yeah. I mean, we he was really I mean, he seemed very actively engaged. The try was. No, I guess it was a frequent communication with keeping abreast of the program. He was he was probably into it. Yes. Yeah. I mean, I'd like to think that we were a little bit head of the game. Now all teams have got junior teams and things. And we just had drivers that we'd spot and keep an eye on help them alone sort of thing. And he he was instrumental in in guiding in the area. It was like a purchasing noise. Get it Ryan was a prototype bread pool system. And you never run out to drivers. But. Moberg sponsored youngsters that you made it through to the mall. Mika Hakkinen go through not many more responsive young the former wom- with other teams and things, but not all that many of them sort of stayed with mobile. Now, I'm because you couldn't really do that in those days, you didn't know enough cars. I mean, you'd you'd get the bloke into Formula one stay friendly with him and so on and so forth and hope it succeed. And that's frankly, all you can do. Is more of a marketing exercise than than than? Yes. Mclennan? Absolutely. We had a question asked about dejesus asking why mopus stuck with him? So long. He was potentially very quick. That that that was it. You know, he was quite quick. And he where did he end up alpha? Yeah. I mean, I under out or specific he ended up alpha. Then he went to leisurely. I think the end, but no we we stuck with him for a number. But you see that's a good example. We're always friendly with him right to the end. So that was important then talking of quick drivers center in the late did Ron continue to say if you want send a you have to pay him the twenty five million. Was it easy? Yes. I was. It was the the way Senate came to us was a bit more contorted with her. And this was Senate came to us through a guy called Domingus Pedotti and to Mingas who again is a is a spotter. He's a businessman these owned, right? But he's he's also spot came to me one day said it's not got this young Brazilian should appreciate he's remarkable. So said her her horizon would have a look so we did a little contract with a ten thousand dollars or something night to to wear them over budget. And so that meant that we had hold of sin that we had an opportunity to talk to Senator as progressed, that's very valuable. Then. He Senate was very independent choice. I and we we had a test day. So stone for up and commas Senate was part of that up and coming and it goes what he do. Eat bloom all Wade's the whole lot of say. But unbeknownst me run it already made his mind up. We wanted..

"And. So. So we we sort of mumbled. About the options said the options were James Hunt or Jackie eggs. I never told James, but I voted for Jackie. Anyway. So in the end, we you know, we went with with James, and I had I had the task of going and finding James this is a Saturday night and Saturday wet night in London where you start. In in the in in the mid seventies. So I found found fame phonies home in Spain. And his wife. I think on the phone and said, oh, you might find him here or there. I've found him at Hess goose. And he was entertaining. Jane Burbach at the time. And. So I went round I went round to the house and. He tried to play hard to get and I got options. You know, it's this or or you can get and drive a Lotus. And I knew he didn't want to drive a Lotus. I mean, there was quite a superstition about. Drive loaders in those days 'cause semi them that had accidents. And anyway, I knew you didn't want to drive a lotta so that was my card. Cud along story short. We gonna wake a deal signed sealed by the middle of the following week. What you said initially, you you'll you faded signing. X what we reservations about James? Oh, and it wasn't any reservation about James. Yes. I knew very good driver. I mean exit. He was what second in the German Grand Prix the week the year before something that I mean, he was very good. He is ready. Very good. And so it was a simple as a judgment deal cool. Lost of the close question with James not being willing to adhere to mulberry's shirt trousers. Yeah. That was interesting. How did how did you get round bell? We played played poker. Again. You know, he said I I can't wear that shit. I said what you're gonna have to. I can't will not I can't pay you. Okay. Say that that was. And talking of close when I think of Marlborough in the pits. You see the red trousers the white shirts that was kind of one of a kind of the time. What was the reception of the other teams that they look at the Marburg guys and think look all the infamous, I think JPS might have might have beaten to the draw on that stuff because they were all in black one. Yeah. And so I think that was one step ahead. I've always kept my on on Penske. Roger as a as a sort of a guide to all these things. And if a years. Russia had the smartest turn out. Yep. Forever in the whole a mode raising. So I will always kept on him. And then so and Roger was quite close to McLaren in those early days, and I picked up little hints from that fed. Will you know, that's the way to go. You've got to be smart Ferraris. I mean Ferrari who were. The top dog said to speak inform. The one. They they were still walking around in shell Karki overalls, which looked smart bet. They they just look smart. You know, was that the difference between Melbourne and the other brands was sponsoring that. They just made it that little bit more pressure on a little bit more. Yeah. Exactly was the real difference. We wanted to look slick what was just interested from a marketing man's perspective. Given as you said doesn't assumption. Give them. There was a British Grand Prix. If it was on the tool that you're five laps then they go back to Haydock park to show the horse is walking around the flipping racing. I mean where was the valley? You could advertise papers on TV in those days in magazines, the where where is where is the value from over? Well. Because he was still underground sports relatively. Yes. And no. We could see..

I read that somewhere the other day. I think was one of your magazine. Yeah. I mean, I've never. Seen a car being driven were on the road, quite so fast. I want. I was asked him how to get to any producer. And he said fuller me, I'm within about three minutes. Yeah. No. I had a similar experience going the SilverStone, you know, going up the back way and you end up in in front of stow. Yes. I was trying to follow him. I mean, he was just there's all junctions is flat through every one of them. With no gang. It'll be right. You've one tune record. And then Ron Dennis on you. I knew Ron tour. I didn't know run torn I was introduced by Toronto, Nick and. Run. I mean, I didn't know at the time that he was probably angling to sell them team at that point. But he was asking me about sponsorship and how it worked and so hopeful. So it was a little bit the blind leading the blind and. Yes. That was how that came about. But. And Ron tennis was had had. He was the official. Brabham formula two team that point. Graham Hill was one of the drivers. Has was Tim Jenkin? I think that's right in saying that will probably no, I'm not sure. That is. There were there were raises when when Graham thrust is in that race. I remember it was Graeme and Tim were drying. And then with Malta around later there would then teamed up with the lies of Williams and be ram. But I was like before you arrived at that. That was done before. I ride the same. Yeah. I joined more bro in September nineteen seventy three, and they they had Moberg already done deal with him and part of the thinking behind that was actually fairly interesting. Guy. Cool. Ronnie Thompson who was a international rugby player was president Phil Morris at the time, and therefore he's very sports oriented, and he he liked the way Frank thought and talked and so that was Frank's sponsorships taken care of. And then. The the R M situation was he even more interesting. Because one of wanna Ronnie's ideas was to have. Driver of a different nationality in each car. Each different race. So that's why we ended up with. Sometimes three cars a field sometimes with a Dutchman German, and Australian an Australian everything all in the same. On the same team. It was an interesting, I wouldn't just pooh-poohed out of hand. Because. Given that the entry. In in a grand prix in those days is quite low. I think it was about sixteen on have rich. So they weren't exactly struggling to fit you in the field. But it gave. And this is what Mowbray will really after it gave on international field. The whole thing. And just remember that knows days. No television. I mean, no television so other than that. Trying to find out the results from phoning up the phoning up the newspapers on a Sunday night. I used to do this phone up us pay was in Sunday night. Get put put through the sports as in you'd say. Can you tell me who won the former to raise it at Zolder? And they, but that was that was any communication so was winning Monica ideal base for them. Really? Because it's the biggest break it was. It was you're right. It was the only let me kid. Correct. I think it was only race at got on TV. Because ABC who in the rights holders at the time. Would only televise three events Monaco, Indianapolis, five hundred Allama. In hard. Dog you?

"Hi, this is Freddie Spencer come into after the two thousand eighteen motor GP raise the shell Malaysian Grand Prix from seeping international circuit. Now, you can count on a couple of things being the case when you go to Malaysia one it's is going to be hot. And it's going to be very humid every single day. The other is is changing whether conditions, and that means that there's going to be a lot of showers opportunities for that. And as we saw him Saturday, just when it rains it pours. And so puts a real premium on the opportunity to come when the conditions or dry. And so you have the riders won a lot of pressure on the writers because they know that every single app counts if it's dry in the beginning of session, you better get in and lap time when you can just in case, the rain does come the other is certainly on the engineers and the crew itself because if they are going to make changes they're going to improve the bike. They need to be on top of that. Because you may not have an a lot of opportunity in in future sessions, if the conditions aren't right. And so that puts certainly some pressure. The other is is the fact that the season is coming to an end in. So when you have riders and maybe hadn't won a race yet as the season is going on it's targeting a little bit desperate service. Start running out of time. Same things if you hadn't finished on podium, or if you need to get into good result to make sure that you get the best deal that you possibly can for the next season or a deal at all. And so it puts there's a lot of expectation there. Even though the championship is over with for the individual championship. There is the constructors championship, which of course, Honda wanted to get wrapped up if they could over the weekend. And so there's still a lot of things to be done and said now, let's talk first about the Yamal situation.
