Canada's national radio motor sport already the race line radio network in a never ending never end. Never tiring west, I'm trying to say to showcase Canadian racing talent. It just can't help very impressed by a twenty three zero pilot Montreal for TSN six ninety who's leading the pack it f- to a major development wrong in the Formula one ladder, working the France based dams racing entry. He's collective three winds of the first three doubleheaders at Bahrain Baku and Barcelona. And he's the current series points leader vote with the first of a two part interview. Let's meet nNcholas Latifi on race line radio. There may be better starts to seasons. But you've got to be pretty happy with this one. Said it's been an amazing start to the season. I mean much better than than I honestly would have subpoenaed going into the year. Yeah. I mean, oh, always going going into the new season for sure, you always have ice speculation be no Osman the until you start to get the first race on your belts. Never quite sure what you know how it's gonna play out, you know, especially coming into this year, you know what the goal to fight for the championship for sure. Starting off strong always built golfing. Then, you know, kind of Michael starts start this year. How house ending last year was, you know, quite. If you win podiums. And it's always back at the front towards the last third of, of last year. Let's say so. Yeah, manage to do that. And yet that I've won all this first race of the season. All the was was good. You know a good. Feeling myself number working in the right way. And then yet continued that no reporting in the first four aces. You said leading, both drivers and teams championship is, is quite nice quite, nice, indeed, Montreal's, nNcholas Latifi drives, number six Dilara for dams racing in the formula, two championship for those that don't know nNcholas was at the usual path for you in your career when you started as a kid that come from karting and just kind of go from there was at that usual path. Usual in the sense that, yeah, I started in karting, but tool defense that I started that only when I was two years old, which is actually quite quaintly. Okay. Yeah the racing. I mean most of the people I rec- and a lot of people, I'm starting back in Canada. I mean start around like eight years old got the extreme, you know, gassing in Europe, when you know, especially if the parents were involved in motor sports, you know, a lot of pub driving for the one they started with four five even earlier than that this thirteen of stumbled upon upon the sports and. Yeah. To got into racing more competitively by bid, please parts for years, my last year of racing karts with also my first year of racing cars twelve. Well, and then yeah, just kind of progressive guess my way formula three point five in the past few seasons in GP to now. Now too. Yep. Nncholas Latifi line radio. You know, it, it's one of those things where you always want to qualify, well, no matter what series you're in. But especially enough to you know you guys don't get a lot of looks at the racetrack. Not a lot. Not a lot of track time. So you really want to attack qualifying Nick. And I think that is something you really want to do to improve on because it certainly is a lot easier to do it. You do when you're starting near the front than if you're in the middle in the back, right? Going into this year. That was one of the main goal of mine to improve the qualify performance. I mean, I've, I've always had quite good race pace, which is kind of a skill and self how to manage his probably tires, which are very sensitive to, to, to dry reinforce overheating sliding, so you really have to have this driving styling in the race. But then call fine. Yeah. Was to be the weakness from last season. And as you said, when you start at the front, and just makes the race soul so much easier. You know, not having to battle with the experience, guys are, like kind of you'll take the self out of less of a chance axing to start just kind of manage everything easier. So you know every race that I found myself in a position at the front or in the lead in the first few laps I mean it, it definitely is much easier to control control everything and most violent come away with, with podiums from those physician. So that's yeah, that's definitely very important. You have done some development work, obviously for what is now. Racing point to know working with the Williams organization they've got they've got some work to do to get their car better, but the F two car and the Formula one car. You really can't compare anything to an F one card. But I would think that the F two car what I be accurate and saying might get close. Between the two and the one is very, very big be sure on the track. It could be twelve seconds difference of lot five. Yeah. Yeah. It is a really big difference, especially since two three years. That's one of the one we don't change regulations and the wider wings wider tires kind of improved pre four seconds and anything are for two car, which was new last year. It's almost like a second and a half floor appreciation, really. It's kind of a bit more more of a gap to differences is actually downforce issue for sure there's much more power torque. So, you know, going going fast in the street line is always fun with a racist. The differences is being child speed. And you said potential these cars the corners, which is every time I won. I'm even Houston Phil kind of shocks. Wow. That grippier. Well with three wins and the current points lead in the f two series. He's also test drive, by the way for Williams and f one hoping to get those guys better. There's part, one of our interview with Montreal's own nNcholas Latifi on race line radio is this guy got some talent? We're gonna roll part two of our Latifi interview next week really really has been getting some people to notice him. All right.

It's the twenty nineteen Subaru WRX STI, you know, that'd be at one our PM is peak power achieved with three hundred ten horsepower. Turbo charged engine.

Like when big word don't put a gap in there. She'll mounts on you dot CA. That's Eric at race line radio dot CA. Let us now go to the mail bag here. Oh, yes. I wanted to finish this often. I started this last week a young landing wealth Christian stinger, Lynn, gotta hope pronouncing that, right? It looks like the all the letters will fit in. That is in listens to our podcast sports net. Five ninety the fan. He's, he says Eric laid to know your Pinon onto make F one more enjoyable for the fans the idea, one, I got to go through the whole thing here. This is really well thought well-thought-out remove qualifying from all we can except for race one. This will save tires and money for the teams. Maybe two practices on the Saturday and no more Friday race. One is the second step for only the first race of the year. Have it all the same using qualifying to make up the grid order, and then three once the drivers start earning? Points after the first race use the points to determine the grid start for the remaining races. But in reverse order Hamilton twenty five points. We'll start twentieth race to eighteen points. We'll start nineteen to follow the only issue is when drivers are tied in the standings and where do they place on the grid right now? Six seven eight all tied with thirteen points going into Monica, but yet are place in that order. Okay. Maybe just go with that. Anyway, he thinks this, would you know what he's trying to do? Obviously is juggled the starting field here. I mean, there's all kinds of different ways that we've seen racing sanctioning bodies do things being trans to have the, the inverted five where they would take the top five including the pole sitter, and you, you, you work. Your guts out to get the poll, then they flip you down. You start fifth and the fifth place. Qualifier starts on the pole. There's a reason why Ron fellas and I used to call the perverted five because that's what it was. It wasn't a very good idea. Now, you know, and but Christian here how has some, some good ideas. And I know that they are every once in a while talking about how to change. The process of qualifying and, you know, yeah, reducing costs by having less runs. Less practice the you know the way they break through the qualifying down. It's not a bad idea. But I don't know Christian if they would be willing to go completely away, as I think you're missive here looks at it. I think that they would want to stay a little bit closer to what they have now, whether, I think, Christians idea as a say, it's very elaborate, it's very detailed and very well thought out. But I'm thinking, you know, one the way they've got it now, I think they may tweak it, but I don't know whether they would be willing to adopt anything, this radical, and I don't know whether radical is the right word, but look at it this way, the teams in the drivers in the and the organizations that they have they're always looking at ways of, of trying to make it better. You know, I, I know what you're trying to do. You've got Mercedes and Ferrari at the top, and then you've got red bull in there and, you know, we getting maybe some of the, the. Other teams involved at the top with Mick the racing better in theory, I suppose you're right. But again, you know, maybe just sort of put this aside and maybe on the back burner. But I really would kind of doubt that f one would would go radically away from the where the way they're doing it now. And of course, the argument on the other side, is that if you if you reduce anything that's on track that the fans get jumpy, and then the sponsors on the side of the race cars, get jumping because they're not getting the exposure that they need for full value for the sponsorship packages, and that is, what really drives, most of the decisions is it good for the sponsors. Because the sponsors on the side of those cars that fund those teams to the tune of billions of dollars every year, ultimately have the final decision on what form of on-track activity, you have to make sure that the sponsors, get the exposure that they need to make their packages viable understand what I mean. Anyway, Christian, thanks so much for your note, being the man that you are enlisting on the podcast on sports net five ninety two fan in. Motto Senator contest entries us Eric race line radio dot CA to connect the trivia question of the twenty nine nineteen Subaru WRX STI RPM the peak RPM wins in a cheap to the three hundred ten horsepower, turbocharged boxer engine. Let's work another pit stop right here. Donna, then Canada's Scott Goodyear. Tell us about a new gig. He was supposed to be the spotter for Nando Alonzo and the Indy five hundred.

Canada's national radio motor sport authority, don't you know, into our twenty-seventh consecutive year on the air across Canada. We are the race line radio network. Well field is all set now for the one hundred and third winning the biggest race in this board the greatest spectacle in racing the Indianapolis five hundred at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway speedway, Indiana, on the twenty six of may Simon passion for Penske is on the Paul candidates. James Hinchcliffe makes the field this year. Thirty-second middle of the very last row. And lots of is certainly to time f one champ for Nantou Alonzo with his own. Mclaren entry this time failing, yes. Failing to qualify with the Canadian who came within an eyelash winning the ninety two classic. Toronto zone, Scott. Goodyear scheduled to do some spotting for him on the radio. But Scott in this has an interesting retrospective on, Alonzo. So this was, of course recorded before the qualifying. So I am going to air this let you hear this because he has a nice, retrospective on Fernando Alonzo, fellow Canadian motorsport hall of Famer Scott Goodyear. Back with us on race line radio out of this, this all come to pass. Tell us how this came together. Yes. Timing is is everything, all met for NANDA couple years ago when you just hear racing for the team in two thousand seventeen and I was with ABC CNN. So you get to view and chat and get to know and take notes and everything about nature. So new that it was a good guy at that point in time. But when McLaren call just wanted to see if I was free in the month of may, and this may be chatted last time our series. Do anything in the month of may allowing all the cruise for the four three teeth turn around and let their guys come and work on extra cars run here at the speedway. So I was free and very interested in doing it. So now I'm sprucing something do in different here in Apple's five-hundred. Yeah. Your cars going around the background. I'm sure at this point in time now. Well of your if you're at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. We kind of expect cars in the background. I think what Maria's out there in the two. Seater is talking. He is every morning. Yeah. They have a couple of two cedars going around Mario's always here. Crocodile. You know, at his age, he still loves to get the race and and, and still goes fast. Yes. Perfect perfect. Now, listen is this just a spotter capacity for you with McLaren and Alonzo, Scott? Or is there any advisory information you may be relaying his well? Or is it just spotting? Well, actually, the, the head engineer Andy Brown. I worked with before. Yes. You know, we, we have the meetings in the morning understand what's going on, for the day for the running of the car, which always spotters always sitting in participating in and then generally just sitting and listening in on the debrief that go on at the end of the day. And you know, along those pretty amazing guy, they have an amazing group of engineers here at, at McLaren led by Andy Brown. Who is he's won the Indy five hundred here before you know, I'm just sitting there on the sidelines listening. And, you know, a couple of conversations maybe once in a while. But, you know, I think with everything that goes on today, the that on here to be able to actually listen in and not saying adding advice, but certainly love listening and have discussion here there. But, you know, they don't they don't from an engineering perspective. You let the engineers do what they do best. Yeah, exactly has for Nando taught. To you about what kind of spotting he likes? I mean you've been the other way around. You've had spotters before some like a lot of chatter Scott, others. Like sparse talking on the radio of you. Had any kind of an idea, you know, how much talk and how much spotting advice for Nando may require. Yeah, obviously, when you get here, and you go through that discussion, you know, and I should also share with you, that the in cook another Canadian that has raised up in Canada for years in the spotting for years the other spot, turn three for me. I've been I've been going through a little bit of a learning curve, just with that. But it's very easy to pick up 'cause you know what a driver wants and, and every driver's different into your point. Some drivers like a lot of information chat to them a lot and some just like it just the bullet points and as gone on for the tests, and these couple of days. We're just refining what he needs. And you know with drivers that level drivers at all level here. Indiana, eric. It's just, you know in for me. I didn't wanna whole lot of chatter in the year and Fernando's much the same way. Okay. That's good. That's good. Similar styles. In terms of what you want for NANDA was wired differently. Isn't he he's, he's, he's a different kind of a cat, but he is very, very intriguing. And interesting study. Isn't he? He is. Because he you know, I worked with him in the test year that we had a couple of weeks ago for the one day test, and also here for working on the, the, the amount of data that he seems to be able to absorb in recall, almost like he's got an extra computer chips in the dorm, I there, I'll tell you that, you know, and maybe, maybe that's the whole function from the situation where, you know, those guys are so data driven in one are in IndyCar, and every other time before motor sport. But I think more so at one and simulators, etc. Etc. So, yeah, it's been very interesting. For me just sort of see that and he's a guy that is so serious. But I'll tell you he's the most likable guy you can never work with because you get to know more, obviously just from a media perspective couple years ago. But certainly, now you get the chance to really see the guy behind the scenes and he is doesn't and it's nice as there is for a guy that has bachelor that he does. Will the motor sport. Yeah. It's pretty cool to see how normally but it's very interesting also that you can tell where the garages Fernando Alonzo because that's where all the spectators. Yeah. I mean, you know, we have various people to watch, and you'll former winners that are there, and of course, we watch, you know, Hinch being a Canadian watching very, very carefully. But certainly, a lot of attention around for non to Alonzo. His spotter for the five hundred will be our very own Scott. Goodyear, course her Rolex in, in, in ninety two tack little bit about if you can't just a couple of seconds, Scott. The difference really between the cars now compared to the car that you had in ninety two. The, the idea is still to get around there without hitting anything but, you know, the cars are, so are they so vastly different? Ores is the basic engineering in around them kind of similar, or they just so vastly different. Well, you know, I think certainly back in the day that we had cars without as much grip. We have so much worse, our back in the car era in the nineties, when I got involved, whereas our kept creeping up, and we were into nine hundred nine hundred thirty nine hundred fifty power on road courses, obviously de-tune, maybe a little bit, and you can't use all that sometimes on, on oval. But you know now they have, you know, few hundred horsepower, but the tires are better. The chassis is better. You know, I think that the teams have all resign up to a higher level. So, yes, you recall races that we're involved in, there was some neat racist going on. But, you know, there might have been two or three players at the end of the day you think about what's going on now with competition level only drivers. But teams then you've got you know, so many guys that are capable of winning. And that's the neat thing about today's racing. I mean, the field is deeper, thicker and competitions probably all the way through fifteen or twenty s deeper than what we had back in our day now, as we're talking here for Nando did have a trip into the wall, first guy, too. Do that. But I look at it this way he's fine. He got out and he's been cleared and he's and he's okay. And they've got a car to repair. But now he knows where the edge is doesn't. He. Well, you know, and I think that might have been little bit of dirty air from the car in front, and the front one little bit wide and raise the wall or free. I guess you can't say grace at two hundred twenty miles an hour. But, you know, the thing is that, that the thing that he said to be well, I guess I'm a member of the club now. So you're their member of the club, or you're going to become a member of the club run here as far as hitting the walls. He's going to be a better situation, you know, with Zac Brown in charge of the McLaren team. I mean the last time he ran there he ran in with Michael Andretti is huge organization. The fact that it's a little more concentrated. It's their own effort. Is that you think that's going to be a better situation for, for NANDA going into the five hundred Scott? Well, I think that anytime you walk into a turnkey operation, if you arrive here in your with an ready or Penske, or canasta, you know, Ed carpenter seems pretty stout here too. You know you sit in is I don't wanna call plug and play. But I mean, in plus you have emails around with you. And let's recall here that, you know, this is all brand new team, there might be three or four US-based people on this team. The rest are all from England. Right. So when you think about it, you've got these guys coming over not only learning Bacar learning IndyCar learning tires learning. Everything about the engine learning the track all the stuff that is going on other teams done here for years or decades. If you will McLaren's trying to get it all done here short space of a month. So I mean combine them with what they're trying to accomplish what they're doing and, you know, and there's no, there's none of this, where McLaren of where one with the guys. That's all they know they all got rookie stripes on their back and their whole goal to turn around and just make sure that the Lurs much off. Able in with the offroad extertion yesterday or wallet stirs. These guys were here late last night. And I thing this morning. So that's what Indies all about mo- Scott. It's perfect gig for you. You certainly have your own place in history with the Brickyard in the, the Indianapolis five hundred and I can't think of a better person to do some spotting for, for Mr. Lonzo solicit as we're talking going into qualifying here, the very, very best of luck with it, and we'll check in after the race and see how things played out. Thank you so much for the time. Scott's, always a pleasure. All right. Joy well obviously recorded prior to qualifying for the Indianapolis five hundred and as we know by now for none of Alonzo.

We are very much impressed so far with twenty three year old red hot shoe from Montreal for TSN six ninety who's winning leading points and two. That's a major development Steph one tilling the French dams racing team. He collected three victories of the first three doubleheaders at Bahrain Baku and Barcelona at after Monte Carlo. He is still the current f two series points leader with the second of our two part interview. Nncholas Latifi is back with us on race line radio. The new f two car last year and you said it's maybe a little bit a little bit slower. Is it is it more of a handful drive? An maybe have you had to adjust your driving style mic to suit. What is still a relatively new to car car? Car wash your heels. Heavier so around, like over hundred twenty five pounds heavier. Six triple now as opposed to V8. Nash, e straighted, the, the car doesn't make the car doesn't make a bit more downforce so, but heavier more downforce and yet the engines different. So it does change Quin characteristics, and how you have to set it up as well. Hey, dr. And I was one of the things that I really struggle with last year was kind of making the change from how driving the previous generation car, and kind of how might team was even set it up, which I was in quite a bit places that in two thousand seventeen having a very good. Jesus going, ten podiums when it change the car last year, I felt like as all the experience I had from the previous year, like had thrown out the window out of the batteries that sessions, they had of trying to reliant, what not experiencing gale washer worked since I was driving. Those are ups bowl and we were doing that in his and none of it was working. So it wasn't until, like kind third of last year. Where it kind of threw out the window released scratch kind of teach myself in the drive or the fact that you were able to adapt. I mean there are a lot of drivers out there. That would be kind of lost to be able to, you know, or to require to do that kind of an adjustment. So that's I think feather in your cap, nNcholas Latifi from Montreal drives the number six for dams racing in the formula, two championship are. Opportunity to speak with him across Canada on the race line radio network. Talk about this team have been around probably thirty years or pretty close. You think about some of the drivers that have come through this organization. I mean Sebastian more day is F one. And then, of course, as a, a stalwart on the Indy-Car side, Marcus Ericsson x f one is now teamed with fellow Canadian James Hinchcliffe over EROs Schmidt Peterson on the Indy-Car sign remain grows Yamaha's organization, peer ghastly. I mean, there's a long list of drivers that most people not come out of this team. So it sounds like you're in pretty good hands. Yeah. Looking back on their, their history in the sport. I mean and the definitely one of the most successful junior single seater teams are is from before, do two of three thousand and the recent many other screws is wall. Full no people in five and going back on the threes on. Yeah, they've always been a talk team. And you know, confront at the fund whatever they competed. And so, yeah, that's also one of the reasons why I've stayed with them for, for the past few years, absolutely a championship, like let formula to where you have sold them to track down. And you said, you know, having that kind of miliary and continuity, Paintin found replace department, you know, in the past four years of them. I think it's says, well, really distracting the relationship and kind of, you know, it trust between, you know, me land years mechanics, kind of, you know, when when they know to, like, trust me in terms of decision maker when I have to trust them and now with your success. In two, and you're f one development part of your career would it be overly simplistic, to think that you're definitely got your guns pointed on something in Formula one for your future? The first thing that's going to bring me towards you know let's the first part of that goal deriving from the one to perform enough to win to win the championship. So that's what the my fully focus on now. That's the goal. Another famous Montreal are involved in formula. One would be master land stroll. And the last time I talked to him, we made a little discussion about the Montreal Canadians. I got to think of your from that town, you gotta be halves fan on my right? Okay. So first of all of you thought a hockey fatty general. Well, that's okay in wrong with that, just. Actually drawn when I was six months old, I visited much y'all so much going up. And even now. Back during the painting grand prix, but yeah, so I really haven't peppers that they will use the house on his views. It'll fall over. Okay. Definitely was always the question. I got the going. I would imagine that would imagine. So, and that's fine. That, that's all right. I mean, that's a you've got you've got your career here to carbon that's fine. And listen, we've been dazzled by your success, especially, so far, this season nNcholas and we certainly on behalf of everybody up and down the race line radio network across Canada, wish the very best of luck, and good hunting for the balance of the schedule.

Plus, he is also a test driver for Williams. In f one, you absolutely have to because of all of this, and the success, he's had so far this year, that he is Canada's next strong F one possibility.

I think he's at the Brickyard may be back at the hotel are official wrap up of the Indianapolis five hundred back with us. Very good Powell Norris. Mcdonald high Norris. What, what I'll lead in. I'm going to have to send you a check for that. That's okay. The check the checks in the mail now before we get into anything. Right. This is a this is a special anniversary for you. Covering this event, isn't it? Yes, it is. Tell us why this marked my fifty years while the signed a credit reporter, the first one I covered for the global mail back in nineteen sixty nine while one and only race at Mario. That's what in the Bronner hawk absolutely. Clint Brunner chief mechanic and, and Andy granite telly. What's the owner? Of course. Everybody remembers Planeta Smoot Andretti kisser. He did something the Hollywood actress on on, you know, or or the festival. Yup. Yup. Great. Yeah. It was good. Now, I have to say you've taken in many more of these than I have. But I I've got to say that having watched that thing from start to finish what a performance by pageant, but Norris what a race especially in that thirteen laps shoot at a shootout at the end after we had that red flag Amine. Wow. I mean if you're not entertained by that there's something wrong with you. Right. Absolutely. Absolutely. Yeah. You know something, you know, Eric the guy who made that race. The guy who was responsible was fellow who finished second Rousey Alexander Ross. Yeah. Yeah. You know, that had been. A very routine race. Yeah, there's been a couple of things that happen in. To routine race until about one hundred fifty lap, Mark, and all of a sudden, Mr. Rossi said gonna win this and. And he went he, he went to town did. And it was at that point that pies got the message I was when Pence, he got the message the new garden into the lead there for a bit to try to suck rock draft him along. Yeah. Baby chasing a little bit too much using up a little bit too much fuel at sort of stop. And, and, and, and I'm telling you that lasts fifty laps was among the best at the Indianapolis five hundred I have ever seen. And if you said, you're absolutely right. You're an entertained by that your debt with yet from Toronto Star wheels, and a fellow Canadian motorsport hall of Famer very good friend, Mr. Norris. Mcdonald, live from Indianapolis, wrapping up, the one hundred third running of the Indianapolis, five hundred but you know what it, it may be just me. And you know in you, maybe you thought about this thing to the way, passionate was throwing that bright yellow Dilara Chevy around that around that track, even you know, getting in the way. And preventing Rossy from getting around him, especially down low. I'm thinking to myself, they're not going to charge him with blocking are they was being an alarmist there. What? Really? It's really interesting. Yes, it is. The post post race press conference. Right. Alexander Rossi was what's really angry? Okay. Okay angry. Because number one, the Honda did not have the horsepower to match to Chevrolet he did mention that. That's right. Number two was browned off that they'd had the problem with the fuelling equipment. Yes worse. But you know, as he said, we'd come here, four times three times we have had the same problem. You can't put fuel in the car. He was mad. Yes. Then he was obviously angry about the blocking. Absolutely. Yeah. I said to him. Yes. Mr. Rossi, I set some people might might have interpreted, what passionate was doing on the last lap as blocking did you did you consider an appeal. And he said, yeah, well, sure what's moving around, but he said, look at the last lap beginning after. Five hundred. Okay. They're not gonna do anything. No, I was going to ask him. Follow up company. Hillary had the microphone. I see was going to say, well, didn't disqualify the winner of the Kentucky Derby for the last hundred and fifty years. They did this year. They did this year's. Have been a possibility. First thing. Case, however, you know something day they all have to race together. Yes, they all have to go on from here in racially of the season. I don't think considering it's the biggest race in the world that anybody wants to really rock the boat. Okay. Now I see that I see that. Yeah. I understand that. Now, having said that, if the tables have been reversed, and he was blocked, Alex, and he was blocked. Yeah. What Roger Penske not considered high appeal. I'm thinking you probably would probably consider, but he got his eighteenth. So he's okay. And, you know, something it was funny because the word has been around since I got here Friday, right? That patch, you know is not a hundred does not have a lot of job security. Yeah, yeah. And of course, you know, he's been unstoppable all month. He won the grand prix two weeks ago. Got the poll for here. Ellison spending dominating. He led a hundred six of the two hundred laps over half something that's never happened before. Anyway, when Penske comes up for the post race press conference. Somebody said so patch, it'll have job security and Roger said you Betty does. But then Rogers said something interesting. I'm never said anything to the media about passion. Oh in, in jeopardy. Yeah. However, what he set there didn't say, passion, ovals job was never jeopardy's that. I never said to them. Yeah. He never said to the media. However, I think winning the Indy five hundred may may help is. Stock up is secure. I do not think that, that Elliott Castro Nevis, who had a one off and see, you know, he drives for Pinski in the series. That's right. Yep. And they brought, you know one more kick the can try three time winner. Yep. Yeah. Tried to get him a fourth didn't work out last year. Didn't work this year. Now. I would not be surprised if Mr. Penske goes back to four cars next year Rossi happens to be one of the drive that's been rumored for a while. That's interesting to feeling that. That's just might be in the work before we run out of, of clock here, and that's always annoying. When that happens Norris McDonald with this, wrapping up the Indy five hundred Hinchcliffe from the lash row thirty-second to finish eleventh, just outside the top ten I don't think we could expect more from him. Could we no no no? Yeah. He did a great job at Tim team did a great job. You know. I mean, sure if they'd had another couple yellows another couple of restarts. It's possible that he could have worked his way up a little bit further. But considering the way things went this weekend, and the way they went specifically today. Eric, I think James cooked at a marvelous job, he might you know, I think he wanted to top Ken, but he just missed by one but it's double points. That's it. And he got a heck of a lot more finishing eleventh. Any what if he finished thirtieth thirty seconds? Oh, yeah. I think he did fine. And I think you didn't get chance to see a lot of it may be in your in your travels. But I thought NBC in their I kick at it. I thought did very very well. I thought they had it covered head Earnhardt, jR in there in the danika there like Rico, and I thought they did a pretty good job nurse as you say, I didn't see the whole program there you are. Of course, I was I was actually trying to keep track on up there. Yeah. Here, though. I did hear that Gannett really did a good. Did. She did a good job. And she, she split, a lot of things about the emotions going technical stuff to sheiks plan. Apparently at one point she apologized everybody. See might have ignored when she was driving. People stick it out. You know, I read honor was it really was. And I thought the president. Drivers could care less joy deal to the second the get in the cockpit. True enough.

Four white nationals at Charlotte, we did exit rentals Tyler Scott and Welland based Larry Dobbs cardiac kids squad drop top alcohol. Funny car headliner any Whiteley using a over seven reaction time in five point seven five t two hundred and fifty two point two eight miles an hour pass for his very first career national event win an Wally how exciting let's find out. How he pulled this office? We meet Tyler Scott on race line radio. Has it sunk in yet? It's getting there. It was a dream weekend. And a lot of hard work and time and money. Everybody put in and all came to fruition that day. Yeah. Yeah. And we'll get to some of the some of the details in the second. But you know, after you finally get that first national event, Wally other people that I know that if one there I wanted kinda changes their their mindset a little bit and the word, and even the term mindset is such a a broad in wide kind of an idea now that you've won one. What what does it feel like in terms of getting back in the car? Now Tyler in trying to get another one. Which is the key. Right. Yeah. For sure I mean, basically, it just kind of makes you realize that it is possible. We can. And we go out and go to the race. And we were team not long ago that would just show up to track and just have a goal of qualifying just to make the field. And you know, you're going up against the best in the world. You're going on of against the Sean bell. Amir's and anyway, lease and John Lombardo's J pains, and it kind of transitions once you win one that you can hang with these guys. And it kind of reminds you that that's why they don't race on paper. You still got to go up and down the track. And we did a good job of that. We didn't necessarily the fastest car that weekend. But we we played the consistency game. And it all worked to you talk being consistent and going rounds. Obviously is the name of the game and drag racing. Don't have to tell you that during rounds one and two you banged off consecutive ET's of I think five of the five nine six, and then a five with a five nine two mean, this car was definitely dialed in the finding was too is that you hadn't had a lot of time in in this car this season prior to this weekend, right? Going in Q one was actually my first run of the year. Yeah. Our final. Yeah. Final raise last year was in October. And that was at the regional and Saint Louis, and then I had I had the whole winter off. So I mean, my my first warm up on the car was Thursday night. Second warm up of the year was was Friday morning, and yeah rolling up there for key one was my first stab at the track. And and to go out there, just, you know, told myself, it's just do you do any went down Q fifty six and brought the conference back real quick. I felt real good. My my vision was good get the ship points. And and yeah, I mean, my guys they they gave me real good car real quick to to get that conference. This is the cardiac kids racing team in and you mentioned him Larry Dobbs. I mean, this guy's a lifer in this in this game. I mean, this this win is yours, but it is much for for Dahmer. And for this crew because that car was was great. But I mean, you think about. Is like Leary, and how long they've been involved in the sport. And to get that win it this wall for him to isn't it? It's it's more. So for him than myself. I mean, I I've put my time in I've been working. But Larry's, you know, it's always a joke. He's been racing since the beginning of time. So he's he's been been in the game forty plus years the spent some time in the trae circuit. But when when not disbanded the local funny Kirk quest he he made the jump over and the changes to go NHRA racing. And it used been trying real hard for quite a while. And that was his first national event final. And yeah, it was a good day to see him get the finally lift at Wally up to the rest of the season. Look like for you in the team. It's going to be pretty similar to last year with the addition of my crew chief Ryan stacking he now has a license to so myself, I'm gonna chase the north central division and national points. And then if there's going back to Larry just wanting to go racing all the time if there's weekends off and they run in east region race Ryan's gonna go over and try his hand at that. Anybody that runs an alcohol flopper, obviously has fuel in their in their head is that an ambition for you realistically, think Tyner. For me to get out Golkar. So now, I'm here scratch my way into the season and found different ways to get in and start doing what I love. And of course, I mean, that's that's the Altima dream is to get new nitro ride, and, you know, stab the on one of those things a tremendous thrill to get your first national event Wally in the in the oklaho- funny car for for Larry Dobbs in the cardiac kids, congratulations again, Tyler. And here's two more wins. And some were great runs for the balance of the season. And for the future. We'll chat again soon. Thank you so much for the time. Thank you your first career NHRA national event, Wally that's after Wally parks, of course, the founder of the NHRA and the trophy has imam on it. And that's why it's called a Wally Adam know from some of the day's Lanny account AWali because that's why they're called walis because while he's on there anyway for for Tyner, Scott and Larry Dobbs cardiac kids team based out of Welland have been around this thing for a long long time. We take our hats off to them to finally crack that first national win. Oh, and thanks to other good drag racing buddy of ours of on Potter for helping set up the connection with tighter.

All Wendy Hollis, the very lovable in popular Maryville maniac in Saint Catharines who listens Ueli Sunday nights o'clock and Saturday afternoons at four on NewsTalk six ten c k TB our affiliate in the Niagara, peninsula and western New York. She says Eric I listen to the Talladega race on the radio. And I've come to a rather odd opinion is it possible, the new aero pack and the last minute changes that NASCAR made for the race from here on in level to see just a big wreck fast. Will this then result in NASCAR tampering again with the rules and regulations midstream my son confused, then I am am I the only one out here in gearhead jungle just asking. My answer to your trivia question, by the way, and this is post Mark McKay. She gets in the way leather seat option on the WRX STI is the Ricardo seat and she got this enemy. I didn't get to get to all of them right away. But I do get to just about all of them if not all of them, and she's postmarked. Okay. So Wendy Hollas in and she has to win the price back. Now. I don't know. It just depends on I think we need to see how this new aero package works on all on all of the speedways. We just had the race occa-. See that was excellent Richmond was boring. Talladega. Even without restrictor plates was yeah. Was a wreck fast. But you know, are they going to tweak it? Yeah. Maybe. But I you know, the consensus is out and in some people who finished thirtieth in races. Like Kyle Busch. Don't like it. Because when he doesn't win a racy complain about things like that. But that's the way the ball bounces some like the package. Some don't obviously Keselowski loves it because he won in a thriller. And that was a great race. The aero pack a Casey let those guys race pretty well. Lots of passing. Thrilling result of the end even though a win extra laps and I'm never a fund fan of. That as you probably know, but you know, what? The aero packed worked to KC at Talladega. They had the big breakfast didn't work that. Well at Richmond Dover was. Okay.

We're get set with one hundred and third running of the greatest race in the sport the greatest spectacle in racing. The Indianapolis five hundred at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway speedway. Indiana. May that twenty-six the solitary Canadian entrance from Oakville survive near fatal crash of the yard in two thousand fifteen recovering miraculously scored the polar year later and then heartbreak last year is he failed to make the field of thirty three. So forgetting about all of that. How is he looking at this year's classic starting off with a tribute to the late. Great dean McNulty as Canadian motorsport journalist. Always the stink pleasure to welcome back. The mayor of hinge town are very good friend James inch cliff on race line radio. Every once in a while in our game. We have to talk about the dear departed, and we lost one of what I call him. A journalistic giant, indeed McNulty longtime motor sport journalist for. The Toronto Sun departs this earth in his seventieth year. You know, he's interviewed so many people over the years, so many friends and such great respect by everybody. You must have fond memories of Dino because he was certainly synonymous with the sport in this country. Wasn't he? In your career. Dean of speed, call of the Jewish. You know, you're starting to make ways that in this. There's no doubt that you know, the kind words that he had to say helps me Michael trying to get to where they'd be calling one of the things that I always loved ones that are core went off. You know, we have very candidate innovative disposal. Inflation topics and very passionate about the sport. You could writing to see when you talk to them. And yeah, always took an interest in going on in your life outside of the sport. And how he's doing it cetera. So yeah, a sad day for everyone. It's gonna leave a void. But he was certainly certainly one of a kind in and a colleague, and friend who all of us into we certainly wish him God speed. And where we're certainly going to miss him on the other hand. Let's talk about something a little more out beat in your teammate, Robert Lincoln's continues to inspire around the world with his remarkable recovery. No, you keep in constant contact with wick just give us maybe some some latest. Insights, perhaps if if you want to on how recovery goes because it has been really hinged nothing short every marketable. He's breaking every every foundry set four by doctors being jumping sit heavily motivated health. Anybody doing process, and you know, I I would prove that in my accident. Robbie's bid been absolutely no difference. And the you know that you know, it on the head of the way inspire people. Just incredible ways varying journey I think he's been incredibly brave. Awesome. To kind of see the progress that he's been making sure everybody online. He loves the progress and self motivated needed more. And then he pushes fell harbor and he's been great very back at the racetrack. And he's really enjoyed you know, seeing smelling car to Dan in. From everybody in the motive force wound in even the motorsports world bitterness that us for so it on his behalf. Thanks, everybody. For reaching out. You can't. And of course, you went through a two when you had your accident the outpouring of support in the cards, and the the letters and the gifts and everything you can never underestimate the value of that knowing that there are countless people out there, pulling for you is is it's gotta get you in the right frame of mind to know that there's all that support out there you went through it. And no doubt Robert feels that as well, doesn't he? I think we both understand that the most most precious the person has is is their time in takes time to message or than you letter or won't concede. You know, it really is a personal thing which position knowing that someone willing to give up some of the most valuable things to another person is is so humbling so prefigured it's been great to see the pulling up support. And he he can use to be made by every every time shows up at the racetrack. Nets that case some of the racing people are the same people. But it's a whole new crowd of people. He's away every time you come out. And and, you know, see all these all these faces for the first time what what everyone has to say James Hinchcliffe Oakville, Ontario, drives a number five dilemma Honda for aero Schmidt Peterson motorsports in the NTT IndyCar series. Okay. I don't think there's another driver out there. That has seen the swing of emotions around this race, the crash there that almost took you from us your recovery to win the poll the very next year to the to the depths of despair when you don't make the field last year in a very short period of time. I don't think there's another driver out there who has gone through the swing of emotion that you have as we get set for the one hundred third running of the biggest race. There is the Indianapolis five hundred would I be accurate in all of that Hinch. Probably the most down do. But you know, we certainly had an extreme run there over the what eight or nine years you've been there now. So yet, it's interesting we're up we're up on the guys that have had a more of roller coaster time. Anyway. Yeah. You gotta get out there. You know, your fast enough to get you know, you've got forget about all of that. And get out there and start a new, and I mean, that's not easy to do. But that's what you need to do. Don't you? A lot of things in our sport. You know, when it comes to putting things lines. That part of I think any athletes job is different for me. Because he's in, you know, whether it was coming back from the wreck and fifteen we had to put that blind. When everyone's you know, you're on being poll and not having the greatest qualifying in seventeen eighty but that bind and after after landing now that we're gonna roll through the tunnel, you know, under under the short shoot in the south side of the track and intervening apple Motor Speedway. Like, it's just another may in. You know, we go in there with a lot of preparation on the team side and on my side highly motivated. And we're looking forward to run, you know. And there isn't another track is there on the circuit. He just happens to be the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. And we talk about this every year. But it is so important. You can do all the prep you want which have really got to be almost a weatherman at Indy too. Don't you mean, you've got to watch, you know, with the sun goes down behind the grandstands the wind and the track temperature all of that. It's it's most critical at this place. Probably more than any other track on the circuit. Would that be accurate? Yeah. No doubt even thought a little bit just be the open. And you know, it's it's it's funny. You know, seeing partnerships is get wide when I tell you got to look at the wind sock on pylons into one and on the grandstand free laugh, Jeff wittingly. It is a fickle track in that sense. You know, I remember. Eight sixteen. I could tell the team exactly when the track. Temp went above one hundred eighteen degrees Fahrenheit because that's when I started to lose about my race car hovering just above and below that point cloud can for bait. The car came alive and third falling apart come on the Rover one eighteen artery reading when. It's that big a different. Yeah. You got to be that tune into it and obviously darn Frank. When I won by being a pretty pretty damn good weather, man. Yes. There's always the right now, you gotta try and predicting things. Exactly. Yeah. The rain you're gonna keep you Ryan that as well. James Hinchcliffe with us on recently radio were previewing the one hundred and third running of the Indianapolis five hundred wanna get your take on this AFP Gizmo, the advanced frontal protection device designed little fin there in front of the the cockpit to deflect debris away. There's been some talk that maybe at creates some some helmet buffeting. Give me your impressions of this little Gizmo, a hint, you you had a chance to do some testing within. I guess maybe not a lot. But maybe give us some first impressions of this thing. Yeah. What whatever they call it. I call it the shark fin. I it's a good step. Obviously, you know, we've been behind the scenes very, actively pursuing. A more complete, you know, head protection. Right. This them. You know, it can't be you know, IndyCar is not shy about the fact that they're behind where they wanna be.

Great little facts that about Tatyana Calderon and during the recent one ACOG on pre Alex Jake's caught up with Tatyana to put some big questions to her about life in formula, too. So tax code woke him to are incredibly glamorous location for f- to the road to f one, you are first guest on the podcast. And we're next the Mediterranean Sea, you can hear it in the background outside of the paddock here, which is in a rather glamorous car park for formula two, it's great to have you on the podcast. You must be on it to be our first driver appositely, like you're, you're making that rule applied of ladies, first and Yelm, definitely enjoying these view, Monaco, for the first time in my career. So it's a very special weekend for me. Okay. So let's go all the way back to growing up in Columbia Tempus about your upbringing in Columbia. So I started when I was nine years old, and it was because my sister Powell. She took me to our rental Guca track near house, and we bought a five minute ticket and I fall in love with speed with the journaling, and it was right by the time one problem on Toji was making into Formula one so it, it all just came together. And yet, they were some really, really good days out there. So that was the moment that you got the bug that you call it the most spoilt bug. Did you know in that moment that you wanted to do it permanently that you wanted to carry on go carting, or was it just a great day out at that stage of power? Yeah. No, it was like love at first sight to we on the, we were going there every day after school. They had some night raises, and we started winning that. And, and then it's like poem Pablo's that he took the first like serious championship for karting in Columbia, and that's, that's how we started. But I've always been sport lover. I, I had to choose between tennis football and and car thing. Under. You're one of those irradiating people this time into the everything. Yeah. Well, I the sport science, I, I love it, and, and yeah, I was one of these kids who was competitive for everything event to the elevator button with my brother, so, yeah, I, I love competing and support. So you had the choice of the other sports. He clearly have a passion for sports in general. Why did you in a motor sport? Walk point. Did you decide to take your passion for motorsport and make a career? Yeah. I did. I think it's you know, they're always pushing yourself. There's there's no limits in, in a sense in, in motor sport than an how you influence the car. I, I love every detail of how you can make the car work for you. And I think that, that passion just keeps developing. And, and that was like, the, the obvious choice for me. I'm I couldn't live without that adrenalin, which is. Like like a drug really? And so to pursue that as a career, you have to take the step that every South American driver does and move to Europe. How was that change coach will change for year when I was seventeen years old? I straight away moved to to Europe when you it was huge. Because it was the first time I was living alone was right after I graduated, I didn't know that you had to divide the clothes on the white ones the color ones. I mixed everything I didn't know how to cook. It's a complete different culture. South Americans, where we express her feelings for everything. We cry with screaming and here. Everyone's a little bit more quiet no jokes. So it was a little bit difficult. Time for me when you came over here and, and difficult to get your bearings to feel comfortable. Yeah. Yeah, it took a little time. I was also like living alone, and then my sister joint, so it, it made a bit more more nice for me. But yeah, that, that culture that first impressions and it was in definitely tough. But, but I love what I do so much that it was worth the sacrifices. Let's say so you mentioned your sister. Tell me about the fact that she is had on your career. And I think she has her hands full to be honest. She's like, you know, my first my best friend, my sister, we do everything together. And then she's, she's my manager. So she does absolutely everything for me. Coordinates all the traveling, the media TV's with the team. So it's it's been a real real help and. The you have somebody that wants the best for you surrounding Izzo, AmEx really lucky to have her by my side. Do you take pride in being the first woman driver to reach formula? Yet mean to, to reach formula to. It's already incredible. It's one step below Formula one and while to be the first female to compete in this championship. I think it, it just I want to send the message you know, you, you can do everything that the put your site on. If you're willing to work hard. And of course, it's, it's a privilege for me to, to compete in the championship, you mentioned the having an influence. You hope that your presence in, in this championship will have an influence getting more women into motorsport. Well, I hope so. I mean it was not like my first intentional first thing that I was thinking of bad. I hope that if, if he can help some, some young girls to, to find out that, you know, we can compete in equality in motor sport is one of the only sports where where we can do that. And, and in, in the highest level, which formula to one and hopefully for me in the near future Formula one, so I hope that, that I can inspire some of them to follow their dreams, you know, a female role model in motor sport. But who your sporting heroes, when the when I when I started racing, it was monta because he's Colombian and he was in formula. One. But since I moved to Europe in, I discover that Susie Wolff were starting to test for Formula one for Williams. So I definitely follow her career very closely in, in formula. One in Danica Patrick was the only female who's one on Indy IndyCar as she's let Indy five hundred. So I think we, we have really good representatives in the past that, that has helped to really open the doors for, for women in, in motor sport, in particular, Suzy with, with Danish, evolve there to be different. I'm also part of the FAA woman in motorsport commission. So I think it's all moving in the right direction and I am very thankful that she has also been really helpful in, in my career. So I, I admire what she she did down a little deeper. What sort of mental strength tighten to be the one out. In a in a bad way. I mean factual way to be the different person in the paddock going through teenage years, and your the different one that would be tough in any environment, any industry, let alone motorsport. How was that for you? And, and Tokyo's three days it is extremely tough because people never expect anything from you. But the site I knew I could do it, and it's too combines these people that you're not there to just do laps you know, you're there to compete to win. So in that sense, you're, you're there, all alone, people, not, not really believing in your capabilities and you're trying to prevent wrong. So in a sense, it's, it's been tough. But I think it has also made me become a much better complete driver to go through that. Then, of course, being a female, you know, we, we do things differently doesn't mean it's, it's better or worse is just different and some people they, they don't like to give you the chance to, to experiment, the different way of doing things. So you're you have always to fight against that against like the gonna me of the car, for example. It's. For me. It's been a discovery to how, how can I be maximizing my strength because we have thirty percent less lean muscle than than men. So to, to make sure that the, the perils are in the exact right position for me not to suffer. It's it's been a tough journey Barra of loved the hallway. Very people in the formula. One paddock who are on the record. Let's not mutterings that go on in the paddock. There are people who have spoken on the record in twenty nineteen saying that they didn't think women drivers again to be as capable as men. What's your reaction to that because must infuriate you any hair it, yet that really Marty even more religious, you know, they say that the physical side were after even a Formula, one Curran in some sense. I think it's easier than formula tour from route three car with the steering wheel. Of course, the forces are higher, but there are studies that suggest that women cope with G forces better than men. So for me when, when they do these statements, they have absolutely no research. They really don't know because we have in Harrow female driver in more than forty one years. So I hope that I can at least proof or get the chance to prove that. But those claims around okay, let's talk about this seasonal the step up from what was GP three is now formula three to formula to how have you found the adjustment going to these, the more powerful that more downforce? Tell us about that transition. And he's, he's been a tough transition to be honest because you, you have the, the two compounds of tires per weekend. You have very limited track time with, with repack. These you, you don't use the same compound as you doing qualifying. You have to lapse in qualified wood, everything together, the carbon brakes to understand how to bring the tires into temperature as he said down for the longer races. It's, it's pitstops. It's a huge challenge. It's a, it's a lot that you once you signed, you, you didn't consider all those those, those things now where I'm I think the team is doing a great job where slowly but surely catching up to, to. Guys in front. Of course. I, I always want more. Are you happy with your results, so far this season? No. Definitely not. I, I mean, I think I'm capable of doing much more than than what I have shown. But for for different reasons, for example, back we had the technical issue than I I made a mistake race to some, some calls with strategy of we, there's a lot of things still to learn better. I, I am sure that we can be challenging for points regularly and were all your strengths behind the wheel. What would you highlight as your your best attribute behind the wheel? I think I'm a good starter. Definitely and I think I have a really good feeling for, for the for the tires in, in the long races to the tire management has always been one of my strengths. So, yeah, I hope that I can make the most out of those two for the rest of the season. And who do you see? Yuki competitor this year on the grid. He measuring payment. Yes, veasley. The first one you wanna beat your teammate because he sort of has a similar to you. And he's a GP three champion. So I think it's a great reference for me. And he's doing a really good job. So I, I hope that I can catch up and start to, to beat him in at some point decision. Apart from you here. Do you think the best driver on the grid is this season? Well. That's a tough one tough controversial question. I don't want anybody blocking mean qualifying because of what I'm gonna say. Well, I think Nick Brees is probably one of the quickest guys out there. So yeah would say he's got the experience right now. What do you need to change this year to bring out the strings to listed, and needs to change? Go further forward and to make the season. Good one by the end. Yeah. I think I'm lacking, a little bit of confidence on the breaking and an how to operate the tires in get get them up to temperature qualified. And I think once a qualifying starts to get better than than the results will will come a little bit issue. So I hope that I can improve my my qualifying pace for for the rest of the season. So you mentioned one earlier on last year. In Mexico City, you got a chance to test for Salva that must have been an amazing experience for you was incredible. I, I dream of, of driving Fonua anchors in since I was nine years old. And an I. And I got the first days in, in the actual car in the twenty eighteen of Romeo, sober at one car in Mexico, which is the closest that I have to home. So it was an incredible day by far the best one of, of my career and to experience, what Formula one car is. It's beyond what you can imagine the power, the breaks the downfalls, working within years. It was incredible. And, and I think it was a good test for me physically mentally, and, and I feel like I can I can do a good job. If if I'm giving the chance. So I hope that I can do a good job in formula to the chance. So with the F one tests, you had the absolute limit the total cutting edge technology of Formula one. He said earlier on the podcast, it's harder to drive a formula, two car. Why's that yet? Yeah. I mean, I, I don't wanna discredit Formula one. And of course I haven't done a raise. But I mean the steering wheel informant to we, we don't have power steering, like we doing Formula one. There are many, many other factors that, that make it. I mean for me, it's always been the stating with the most difficult part the brakes as well. You can adjust everything so well to your liking in, in a Formula, one car that in a way, also, you're competing mostly against your teammate in formula, too. You have twenty guys who, who wanna grab that. F one-seat equal cars. It's so competitive. And so the data, of course, he's a great preparation in a way I feel like it's a little bit easier. In some ways, as I said, in the for more on car, you mentioned Formula, one has to be the ultimate goal to get there to get to the top championship emerging sport, is that still the go. It is. It is. I know. That I need to focus on, on doing one step at a time formula. Two is a huge in my career. And I think if you can do a good job here, then, then definitely you'll have a chance to German foam one car and, and to earn Formula one seat. So great to hear from Tatyana Calderon there. Now we've heard from the lady herself. But what others within the formality paddock, thank Tathiana straight off the interview, Alex Jake's caught up with three of the nearest embarrassed people to find out more about her. Care, and team manager first impressions Tatsiana when she joined the style of well touch Yana. We've actually have a previous relationship in that she drove for the art and GP three not so long ago. So I know Tatyana quite well and her sister powder. So, yeah, obviously, she, she put into place. She's different in cheese, female, and in a world of male dominated sports. It's quite nice to have a female perspective every now and again, but yes, she definitely ants has the strength of the team. I was I like behind the scenes, what she'd like drive is briefing as she quick to point pump, if she's not happy with the guys of set things up. She swears she's quite forceful, so she's very strong minded, and yeah, she's a joy to work with actually she's really good. She's really, she's very messy. And I have to clean up after every evening. The driver area is, you know, I've got I've got chalk, and cheese, people like Pir Ghazi here, we've run in the past OCD match put antone in that category where everything is lined up shoes glasses. Everything has a place. Everything has a home Tatyana sticky drink all over the floor. Jumpers missing found sock wounds in the ladies toilet, test and harassed. So she, she, she definitely she definitely is bit more careful on track than she is in their personal life on their teammates. Tatyana coder on. Can you tell us around Tassie on behind the scenes what she like is, who? That's white question. An open question. She, she's a real nice person to be honest really nice to work with ROY smiling, even when she had the death time. So that's really a proceeded to work with this kind of person, you know center is easier. Working with your teammate when you want to be team all things like this. But to be honest, she's really nice on this under Spartan. I really appreciate working with. She said, you really reference as team may because he came in as the champion from GP three. What do you think? Her strengths hours drive out. Consistence. Title management. We've seen in raciest that, for example in Boston. I should use quite twelve finishing Shelton's in both races. So that seems to be where she she's strong. I think she she still needs work on a routine pace in qualifying and yeah, just try to gain the some confidence power counter on great to have you with us. So tell us what did Taty on north let us know about growing up. What what she really likes system back in Colombia at school. She was the best, even with the traveling. She graduated with honors and playing tennis actually was super good service. She's the favorite child results. Yeah. And it's strange because she's the one in the middle. So you started all of this. You started to go up by buying that ticket for five minutes. Is your phone? Yeah it's my fault. But it's one that I like to take blame off. And you're now manager, you're always by her sign throughout a race weekend. This must be a incredible journey that you're both on together. I'm really happy to be able to do this to join her on everything, and it's really an advantage as well. Because we look at each other's eyes and we know everything what's going on. So yeah, it's really nice. I can make different from most manages in the paddock definitely Levin Louis, share everything, and it's a nice journey to church together. Surprise Tatyana that now we know she can handle the pressure of wheel to a racing. But can she handle the pressure of our quick questions? Okay. Quickfire round tatty on a coder on if you weren't an f one driver, you'd be a tennis player. What's your favorite hobby tennis? What's your favorite movie, rush-, who's the funniest person in the paddock? Wow. Finest jacket. Gin. Here's your closest friend in the F, T paddock jacket. Who's your biggest rival in formula? And when he what's your. What's your favorite country to visit Columbia? What's your favorite country other than Colombia to visit? I enjoyed new-zealand, I'm also last place that you went on holiday. Where did I win? Holiday. Sounds like you need to book holding. Mexico. Okay.

This is race line presented by Subaru a range of violence this week at your local Subaru dealer. Anyone along the race line radio network? Back on radio show. Good podcast. Subscribe to podcasts of good show tunes or with your favorite podcast sports net. Five ninety the fan. Onto. Mba's national radio motor sport. Authority the race line radio network outy. Okay. Journalistic decision here. One or two run our two part media question. React session with Kyle Busch. Right after he claimed ask cars career win number two hundred. But I had to put it in storage while we focused on Parker Thompson and Stewart freezing stories the mandate of the show, of course, is to focus on Canadian talent and deeds. I still want to run the Bush sound so you can hear his mindset as he made two hundred wins and his thought process going forward since he is the hot commodity in Cup right now. So if it's cool with y'all away we go reacting some post media questions for Kyle Busch part one on race line radio. Kyle the often say that there is nothing more emotional than your very first victory. But two hundred in total has I think has got a rank right up. There. Can you compare that first win on this track? Ironically way back in September of two thousand five to this win at this particular moment to make it two hundred king can you compare them at all. I remember a little bit about it, obviously. But I don't know. I mean, I think the emotion of it on the first one was way greater just because it was the first one. I mean, I'm mom was in tears today. She was in tears on the first one, I don't know how many of them between one ninety eight. She was in tears four. But I'm sure there were a few of those as well to. It's just been a crazy ride to book end number one in two hundred here at the same place. It's kind of crazy on the same asphalt. It's place hasn't been repaved. So that's been pretty cool as well too. And just being able to to to win about. Yeah. That is what it's all about. Kyle Busch with us on radio two hundred victories. We all know about Richard Petty's two hundred all at the Cup level. But when you were asked about this, you know, a high number of victories in and all the talk was about you being compared to petty. You actually use the basketball analogy mentioning guys like LeBron James, and Michael Jordan, a how do you compare those NBA stars? And what they accomplish to what the king Richard petty accomplish call. So somebody asked me about whether or not I was the greatest of all time. And I was like I'm never going to self proclaimed that you know, that's for others to debate. But you know, I just look at LeBron James is obviously really really good in basketball. So is Michael Jordan into them. You know, arguably one of them which one or the other could be greatest of all time. But in my opinion, I don't know if if in this day and age now anymore with how many eras we've been through in racing or basketball or football, or whatever if there is truly a greatest of all time. I think there's obviously greats and I would just like to be attributed or you know, in that mix of the top five top eight guys. I think by the time I'm all said and done I could be in the top two or three of those guys of greatest of all time. But I think it's going to be really really hard to exactly pinpoint how you can define greatest. When when that time comes Kyle Busch radio courtesy of NASCAR media, Dale Earnhardt toll. Jeff Gordon way back when early. In his career. Listen, don't worry. What the fans think as long as you're getting attention and making some kind of noise in all, but but fans always seem to like winner. Sometimes they will you when you win too much. I mean Earnhardt got booed you Jeff Gordon got booed Jimmy Johnson. You've got you've been booed as well. But DEA feel though that your fan base has grown not because you're controversial. But because you're winning a lot. Yeah. I mean, I just feel like my fan base has been picking up over the years just of growing up a little bit. You know, obviously, I turned off plenty back in the early days. And and you're never gonna change those lines, which is fine. But winning obviously kind of helps that you know, I I certainly have to give a huge shout out and praise to the rowdy nation fans that have been with me since the beginning that have been with me since the the five Kellogg's days or heck even my extended days before I was a coup- guy, whatever. So I even in Las Vegas when we go out there and I signed autographs at Eminem's world. There's people that I see there that come out that. Remember seeing the bullring in Las Vegas, you know, and they're still Kyle fan. So those are the core group that I certainly very appreciative of and and that are very passionate about me. This win two hundred. Do you feel the accomplishment is also very important to lots of other people as well. Certainly it's important to you to you know, Joe the team that the sponsors the manufacturers you have it made two hundred all by yourself. And I know you know, that I mean this was win number two hundred. But there's so many of the two hundred that are special or meaningful. And I don't know how you can categorize or characterize all of them. And you know, people ask you what's the biggest one of your career? And I'm like, well, I guess homestead twenty fifteen probably the biggest right? So where does number two hundred two hundred win and auto club speedway stand. I don't know. You know, it is it in one of the top ten most memorable. Probably because it is number two hundred. But just because of that, you know, it wasn't like it was the Daytona five hundred. Got it or the coq six hundred or Brickyard four hundred or anything like that. So it was one of our our racist. It's on our on our schedule, and it just so happened to be out here in California. But you know, they've all been cherish -able for their particular reasons, and I don't want to discredit any of them. I think that this milestone is obviously a special one to me too, many of those that are around me, my wife might my son will one day be able to recognize that and that Stevens guys, I know many of the the crews and crew chief people that that I've worked with over the course of my career, obviously feel something about it as well too. So it's pretty cool to to hear from those guys. There's part one of our media at question re ask session with Kyle Busch on his two hundred career NASCAR wins. What what is it now two hundred and three or something like that on Rashawn radio part? Two of the session comes up a little later in our second gift segment, but right here.

Wayne, Bratton Simcoe Ontario. He now seventy one years old. He says ATM and longtime listener, and I still listen to your show regularly. Federally to share with you, a true story that happened to my friend. And I this was back in nineteen ninety eight. We were preparing to go on vacation the first night race for the July, Pepsi four hundred at Daytona. We got close to traffic sought was all backed up as closer. We got. The trooper said we have to turn around because of wildfires in the area the smoke was so thick NASCAR had to cancel the race. I remember this. I think we all do the smoke so bad. You couldn't see since it was only chance to see the race. Well, we decided to sell our tickets went back to the airport went into the bar to have a beer, we met this gentlemen and his wife. They said where are you from? We said we're from Toronto she says, well, we're from buffalo and where you're gonna go to the race. But got smoke does. Yeah. We were. So she says, I'm the manager of the local Pepsi Cola plant in buffalo view, if you think you can go back to the race on October, call me, and I'll try to help you out. We'll come September, my friend, and I were able to get more time off I foam this Pepsi lady as he calls her. And this is when it got crazy set, my friend, and I were to meet her and her husband at the airport, and we will be on the same flight. She had the best tickets to see the race for us and sit with her husband the also paid for our motel. I thought. Wow. You know, I thought I'd won the lottery, and I could not believe it or not. You mean, Wayne, that's terrific. We aren't this day. Still best of friends. We've isn't he? Each other a couple times a year. Sure goes to show that there are still really good people in this world.

Let's work in another pitstop right here. Well, then part two of our session with nascar's two hundred plus men Kyle Busch. This race line presented by Subaru for the element of handling. You can test drive at the sports coupe this week and do it anywhere along the race line radio network. You're listening to race line. Did Bob mccowan just say what I think he said you can rewind primetime sports by gas. When you subscribe it. I tunes or with your favorite pod. Catcher sports five fan on demand. Demand band. And those national radio motorsport authority into our twenty seven consecutive seasons on air across this land. We are the race line radio network. But right now, he's actually collected. I think it's about two hundred and three NASCAR wins in his still very active career two hundred was his Cup win plateau, of course, a few weeks ago at Fontana, California. But after focusing on the Parker Thompson Stewart freezing stories because spotlighting Canadians in the sport is what we do. This is the first chance we've really had to air our session with Kyle right after win number two hundred was recorded as for the courtesy of NASCAR media. We re asked a selection of questions put to him by the media. Kyle's way of processing all of this is interesting in the reason, why mothballed this thing and after all Kabua's right now heads to be the hottest driver in NASCAR. Well, you've heard part one in our first guest segment for not so now Linda's role part two with Kyle Busch on race line radio. Now, you've made it to two hundred is there, maybe a higher total. That you have in the back of your mind, or is as you've often said as well, you just go out there and try and win everything and the total kind of, you know, looks after itself I could go lightly and say, well, yeah to fifty you know, where I could go reach for the stars and say three hundred was wrong with that. I would be banned from all of them by then exactly you know, if I want one hundred Cup races. They'd probably be like, all right? That's enough. You're done. Yeah. I don't know nobody from effluence calling. So you know, that's about the only thing higher. I guess that I could try to do, but you know, with being close to one hundred on extending that's kind of what I said, I'd I'd quit at the truck stuff being in the fifties. Just I'd love to be able to continue on with that. And be able to raise those there my trucks and then on the Cup side as well too. You know, somebody asked me like well is a hundred hundred number. I was like sure, you know, we'll we'll set the next number on the Cup side at one hundred and it's going to be hard to get there. You know, but you might as well set your goals I and and go out there and strive to achieve Kyle Busch with us on race line radio reacting. Some. The media questions after he bagged his two hundred NASCAR win with the wind at at fun Tanna. I want to circle back. I can Kyle to your basketball LeBrun, James, Michael Jordan thing, you know, Jordan's one what half a dozen championships with the bulls. Lebron had three with the Cavaliers. But there are other records that LeBron has reached you know, has as cheap as well to put him in that goat conversation. Jiawei T greatest of all time. It seems though in this sport not necessarily just NASCAR. But in this sport, we only associate the goats or the greatest of all time with the number of championships driver has won. So with you now at two hundred wins is it really fair to talk about the greatest drivers of all time by titles and not necessarily by wins. Do you know what I mean? Like, I said in different eras. There's so many different things. Jimmy johnson. He should be the go, right? And he's the greatest of all time. He won the most championships in the most different ways. Of having to win a championship in the most different cars that he had the drive to be able to win races before two thousand four. It was always the whole season was the champion right now. Then we had the ten race playoff. Now. We have three three three and then one you know in on. Unfortunately, for me, I've made it to the final four the last four years, and I've only won at once, you know. So I feel like LeBron James where I can make it to the finals. But then once I get there. I can't quite close it out and get it all done. You said it to comparible 's that not every single one person is going to have every single one of them. Right. There's going to be this guy's got this. This guy's got that. That guy's got that. This guy's got this. And so I think that's what makes it to where you can't always say that there's a greatest that. There's greats true enough Kabua's with sunshine radio celebrating two hundred wins. Now more than a few ears pricked up when you mentioned Formula one if a door opened up your brother's done the IndyCar thing if a door opened up for an opportunity with a good team, but meant walk. Walking away from NASCAR. Would you consider such thing? Call the they're going to have to spend a hell of a lot of money to buy me out of Joe Gibbs racing. So I don't know if it's going to be worth their investment. You know, there's probably too many things that those guys think about that. We'd never be good at at being able to drive those cars, I know Jimmy gave it a shot a couple of weeks ago. Jeff's given it a shot, and I'd love to be able to give it a shot and kind of see, but I just I don't forsee the the opportunity really blossoming and becoming something that I could take advantage. All right, fair enough sponsor of this program. Subaru Canada allows me on occasion to mention other manufacturers if it's germane to a good story. You drive a Toyota Camry and other Japanese manufacturer, and it's worked certainly well for you. When the the entire Joe Gibbs stable with two hundred wins now might the head office in Japan some anew for I don't know some kind of a special congratulatory presentation. You know, unfortunately, back when I when my championship I was invited over there and just timing didn't work out. And I wasn't able to get over there in order to be able to go and see those guys. There's only one guy that I need to be my fan over there in Japan, and that's all Kyo. So as long as occupies a fan. Then all said, I'm good. But no, I'm sure we've got plenty of of Japanese fans from Japan that are huge about being Toyota followers until Yoda supporters. And you know, it's cool to be able to have them over here, and I much influence as they have on the US economy, and the things that they do building cars here in the US with nine or twelve twelve different plants over sixty thousand employees American employee's that that have jobs here is pretty remarkable. So obviously, we wouldn't be in our position today without their support. And the men and women of Toyota to your do such a great job to get us fast race cars each and every week to the racetrack. Of course, same thing with Subaru and their factories in North America. I think we sometimes forget. At its Japanese manufacturer. But you know, what I mean like like Subaru? They employ thousands of workers main cog in the North American automobile academy. Now, I wanna talk about the race itself on China before we run at the time here. Kyle you scored win number two hundred Fontana, you know, pretty much par for the course for you. When you watch out there in the number eighteen you make some pretty darn bold moves to get to the front. How were you able to find openings where seemingly there aren't any openings? I i'm. I'm. These term this. I'm pretty good with you know, how in movies like you can like when you go into the head of somebody that has like that vision where you can like it's got like all that like a fighter jet vision. Right. Like, you can see I have that. Yeah. You know? So I could see the gap. I can see exactly how wide the gap is to know how wide I am, and I can fit that gap. So I have that vision. That wasn't funny kid good. So. When I go, and I get a run, and I see opportunities to to make some of those moves, it's it's whether or not the the gap looks big enough. And if it looks big enough, I'm going for it. And I'm shooting it, and if it closes up, then we might wreck. But fortunately, the the guys up top on the spot or standard in getting a lot better at knowing that I'm crazy idiot, and they'll tell their drivers to leave room sometimes. So I can get through their Kyle different with every driver when they're about to pull off a monumental historic victory. Like, you did it at fun channel to make two hundred win where you certainly that you were going to win and bag that two hundred victory is before the race started. Okay. What was the question? When did I know I was gonna win. I don't think you ever know when you're gonna win. I guess, you know, you kind of the relief sets in when you take the white flag because you know, you're coming back. No matter what to two in the race. So that's kind of when the relief sets in. So you know, it it obviously was you're hearing every single little noise in the race car in and things like that for the last twenty laps of the race. You know, you're hearing rocks flying up in the quarter panel thinking that rubber chunks tire coming apart. You know, and so she's crazy that you hear everything that that you don't wanna hear in in the final twenty laps. But I would say once you take the white flag that's pretty much when you seal the deal well from everyone up and down the racial radio network. Congrats on your two hundred wind and and many more before the end of the season. Call already thinking, well, they're finally as he leaves the microphone are two part session with nascar's Kyle Busch on rice line radio reacting a selection of media questions right after he scored his two hundred career NASCAR win a few. We. Ago, but I did want you to hear of the interview and his whole perspective on the entire thing. Of course will always be an asterisk besides the total Bush's two hundred wins were scored across all three NASCAR national touring Series Cup, affinity trucks. People wanna compare it to king Richard Petty's two hundred which really can't because Pettis two hundred wins were all tallied at the Cup level bushes achievement though is tremendous regardless and it was important as I said for you to hear the audio. Okay. Well, let's work up the final pitstop, then will return them last laugher next week show lineup and more. This race line presented by Subaru?

They're also in the hall of fame, you know, nice work, there boys and despite no-shows in Canada or along our network this season.

Racers, of course, have gone counterclockwise gonna go back to clockwise for this one stay in karting mood with Ron fellows, coming up in our second guest segments talk about his new championship. That's it for this week on the race wrap questions. Opinions always welcome to share thoughts and theories of gear heads across the land of grand prize in the Subaru Raisani mailbag trivia contest that comes up later. All right. Jacob pitstop here, the once back to green previewing, the June twentieth thirtieth night for nationals with Todd Peyton this race line. Presented by Subaru a range of formats ride this week, local Subaru dealer, anywhere along the race line radio network. This is Joseph new garden. And you're listening to race line radio. Like when he read a game and sign up for credit card just to get the prize. And then you mmediately cancel the credit card because there's no prize. When you sign up for a radio shows at I tunes for with your favorite podcast, Schwarznegger, five, ninety the fan on demand. Hanada's national radio motorsport authority. Yes, indeed the race line radio network only drag racing show in this country this season that features nitromethane cars. Capable of speeds in the three hundred mile per hour range is June twenty eight to thirtieth nitro nationals at Toronto motorsports park Yuga in global NewsRadio nine hundred C H L coverage. But he crane berry in the TMP gang using the power of the race line radio network to promote it. All we're proud to help them fill their grand stands for our second preview. The nitro nationals going to bring back the main man in Canada. When it comes to nitro drag racing Bill. Funny cars on top rails, from the first family of nitro Todd Peyton back with us on race line radio. You have some unfinished business at this place. You have a few things to fix them. And just kind of tell us why you have that to do this year. Well, yeah, we're gonna bring the hot rod out there. And actually, we're, we're, we're, we're really silly. We're gonna bring both our top fuel cars this year. Be running our to karma traits. But yeah. Last year, I promise you a great three hundred mile an hour run and wanted to show you how this thing happened and give you that up close in, and, and the intense experience, you can only get with the top fuel dragsters. We were there. And, and yeah, when I went to launch the car last year on the very first attempt he safety system had activated an overwritten throttle controls went to the fraud, expecting grand bit of acceleration. And there was nothing the Fatah cable of the century gone slack. Boy, no. And every once in a while that's going to happen. But then it was funny because you jumped on the cell phone and say, hey look where we're we're going to get back out here. And, you know, the idea is, whether you're doing at NHRA national event Todd, you're doing one of these, you know, maybe you don't call it a match race or an exhibition run. Whatever it is, the nitro nationals, it's still pretty serious stuff. But you've got to put that behind you and say, we know this car is, is better than that. We know that every once in a while, these mechanical gremlins are going to hit you. But you've never you know the years I've known you never been one of those guys. Let's that bother you, you know. No, no. And even you're exactly right. Even last year I didn't even get out of the fires. We brought the car back to the pit area. Didn't even warm it up on what the what, what the bad circuit was as far as the air system went, and just simply refueled it and got back in there and managed to get down the track about forty five minutes to an hour later. So didn't even bother resetting the clutch or anything. Just dragged it up there and went right down the track again perfect bringing to rails to nitro rails. You can only drive one at one time who's in the other one looks like we're going to be putting our local friend of ours. Jeff Chaderton's gonna be driving. We nice. He started his licensing procedure last year. And he's he he wants to continue on through that. So we're gonna go out and run to Peyton cars side by side. We were there in the pits with my daughter and son-in-law last year. We were there for the entire time the entire rebuild the motor, it's tremendous amount of work to get one of these things, you know, ten thousand horsepower, ready to go with nitromethane now you've got to does it just automatically double the work or is there. Some kind of paralleling there that you can maybe, you know, work or is it just double the amount of work to get to cars, ready? It's, it's pretty much double the work. We, we ran both cars few weeks ago at an age raven in Virginia. And we we we'd previously plan. We're only going to run one car in each of the qualifying sessions. And then if we were fortunate enough that both cars would be qualified for Sunday's field. We'd run both of them. Obviously, one car didn't make it. My car was, I was lucky enough that my car was the one that actually did make it into the field. So we're pretty happy about that. But then point in time it was it stressed. The crew to the MAC. So, so you had to be able to, to, to run both cars here. We actually have a few extra crew guys and our car chief, Mark Morris. And, and of course, he on who handles everything and just keeps the show running smoothly. They'll be riding over everything making sure both cars prepped and ready for both laugh. Now. The von does a wonderful job. Now, you know, again, it's not a national event, but you still wanna put on a good show where do you find that happy medium between, you know? A national event where you the phrases set the car on kill and not set the car on kill for this because you don't wanna blow up your stuff. You know, there's that happy medium. There's is that? Is that hard to find when you do when you're doing an event like this, sometimes it is, and mainly because you wanna put on the best possible show for the fans having a cargo up to three hundred feet and, and throw the motor out on the ground isn't necessarily the best show. No, you to go out there and, and, and, you know, and it's tracked you know, it's it gets a lot of running on it. But it doesn't have sixteen top fuel cars and sixteen Nitra funny. Cars going down at all weekend long. That's right. So, you know, it is it is kind of tough to apply all the power to it that we want to. But at the same time, we can adjust the clutch and, and the fuel volume accordingly. We're not going to go out and try and run a low three point eight second thousand foot run. You know, we'll, we'll I live back throttle back a little bit. Maybe we'll we'll run four flat or three ninety and see if we can just barely clips, the three hundred mile an hour, Mark, no need to go. Three hundred twenty five miles an hour here because no, not not entirely sure that we can crank enough. Winging it to keep it hooked up at the far into the back. So just just just best. We can do as far as putting out a good Representative run for the conditions and for the crowd. Well, tell you what everybody looks forward to this, and it looks like we're going to have the best nature. Nationals, we've had ever. And with all the content there. Todd. Thanks so much for this. We're riding with you will see you in the pits. And best of luck this year for full runs at top speed of the nitro nationals Toronto motorsports park.

So we're okay he says, what can you do the you know you can't appeal the the the vessel penalty in Montreal? So just take it like a man, and that's probably good advice ever them available didn't get penalized for not bringing the car to the podium. It looked like a fine or another action for the driver when that happened. Yeah, you're supposed to being a part for me. And after the race in Montreal Avila, did not do that. He was a little bit upset. Almost didn't go on the podium, but the persuaded him to do that. But didn't bring the car park for may and. Yeah, you can be fined for doing that. But they didn't this time, of course, Ferrari tried again to give some evidence at Paul Ricard of the French Grand Prix that his reintroduce the track on lap forty eight was okay. But. Stewart said, Nope. We still think it was an unsafe entry a little move there that almost got Louis into the wall in Montreal. But that didn't happen. Anyway, the finish will stand. And they gave the win to Lewis Hamilton. When I still think that the they really job that'll anyway. Steve ceremsak who listens. Loyally speaking of loyal listeners Sunday nights, eight o'clock on AM, eight hundred CK L W in Windsor slash Detroit.

I thought was a travesty, and he goes right, along with what we're just been saying here, that'll got ripped off plain and simple. I guarantee the same it happened to Hamilton, and Shirley, wouldn't have been overlooked. I think this is a controversy that may last two while Hamilton have overtook vessels for Ari. Maybe so maybe not. But I don't know how Lewis and Mercedes can accept his victory and have a clear, conscience. Well, Stewart said this was fair and square. So he says my rant is over. That's fine Stevie rant on this program, anytime you like here's a try. The Subaru trivia question the twenty nineteen Subaru WRX. Develops peak efficiency at horsepower. He's got it right chairs.

Run every time we hit the summer solstice this time of year in June. It's it's we just finished with, you know, the, the twenty four hours of the mall or the Lamont twenty four is everybody seems to call it now, certainly recalling. Your, your three triumphs on the GTE division back to back an old one two did it again with corvette in four every time we. Hit the latter part of June. You got gotta whisk your mind back to those, those victories and fond memories of recording. Some great success for you and your career at cer- que-, Dula Sarthe at demo Francais as they say, we. It is the single event that I, I miss the most. Sure, it's also the single event that I don't miss now that I understand what you're saying. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah, it is. It's the most difficult, you know of, of car races. It is the most difficult. It is. You know, when you're when you look at the Lincoln tractors, the low rate, nap miles twenty seven twenty cores it's a task, you know. No, no. For air super challenging, and it is in twenty for hours, you share with the two other to other drivers. It's yeah. It's, it's bloody hard work. And which also makes it makes it that much more rewarding with it as, as, as difficult, it is for or you know, drivers drivers improve that necessarily in that order. It. It's, it's true. Test of, of. The, the teamwork and the. Ron. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It is. It's just an awesome that that because it's in terms of, you know, global sporting events, there's, you know, it's, it's, you know it's up there with with, you know, things like the Kentucky Derby at Indy. Five hundred five hundred absolutely. Yeah. Ron fellows on race line radio fellow Canadian motorsport hall of Famer certainly considered on this program to be the best road. Racer this nation has ever for -duced. Now, let's get to the to the business of this. You have had Ron karting championships in the past, and, and we certainly have been following that now resurrecting it again, with a modal master Ron fellows karting championship. Tell us why you thought it was, it was critical. I mean, we know why you need to develop young Canadian talent. And we know that your partnership with Canadian, of course, Mojo masters. Brand of. There's why resurrect this now. Why, why do you think was the right time to do this run? It's really an evolution the idea was. A let let's just try to support one single large events, and that's it. So it started in two thousand ten with, with Kate entire supporting the Canadian Cardi, Jim eventually which they've done every year sips. And in the missing ingredient was the gap was we needed something in hockey terms we needed to now get back to creating a more triple A level down the sheri- where getting tires master brand have have stepped up to, to help build this and, and sort of reestablish that, that level, and we didn't have a, we didn't necessarily have a national series in, in, in jarrow Quebec to, to accommodate that. So this is this is sort of the first step in making that happen in masterful continued to support the. The that Canadian championships, which, again, will be a sport park. And also supporting the, the Quebec contingent with their with the with the Lord master Canadian Open. It's called which is in trouble. Sure the thing about getting involved with developing Canadian racing talent at this level. I mean, this is the entrance level and as for sure when you when you look back at all the guests that we've had on our show over close to thirty years on the air doesn't matter what they're doing you guys like wiccans and Hanshin, Paul, Tracy, and Scott, Goodyear, yourself crying out loud and anybody else we can possibly imagine that has anything to do with racing in this country, primarily on the road courses. But, you know stock racing as well on ovals got their start on the karting tracks in, in the car, and one of the good things about it. The Ron and you've seen this improve of his positive what you teach kids at the, at this age up to the age of say, like twelve starting whatever age. It is the racing rudiments that. You them in at this level stays with them the rest of their career. And they, they apply it, when they're an adult in the racing series at the Renne you've seen that proof time and time again, haven't you well in and apply. The great word the lessons that kids, learn is worked, particularly in life and in motor sports. Is that, that display the focus like you say they apply themselves to, you know, competing in, in doing everything you can to do it. Well, yes, the most important ingredient that, that Koerting teaches you is, is the race craft that's it was difficult part to learn learning how to race is is comes with years of years of doing it out of play that, that, that, that I speak chess game that position yourself making causes ending when you know when. To, you know, the high percentage moves versus low percentage moves. And again, I think it makes it builds character rate, great great territory. Absolute people not only do you to learn the race graph, as you also learned presentation, how to present yourself out of market yourself. Yup. 'cause that is as important it's an investment in the racing future of Canada is the way. I look at it. Yeah. Exactly this, it is. And you talking about great people that are with this. I mean, your, your son Sam is involved. Trevor wiccans involved. End eleo we've had him on the show before he's involved in this, in terms of providing information. So you've got some good good people helping you run this thing run. Yes. And we've got you know, you've got help from the sanctioning body. You know, pauper. Yep. Yep. And SRI SRI cooked run a and Canada or or at these cardia Dench. Here's a guy that's got decades and decades. Experience is not above into be, you know, dealing with Formula one weekend. And he's in Hamilton a couple of weeks later. Yeah, that's right, at a at a carpet. We've had great support only individuals but certainly the he'll look at the, you know, the support now from from Canadian turtles. So the fast brand they've been supporters of carting like I got Chris to help us out starting starting in year two in back in those three and Chris's contributed, every year to helping helping helping series providing cash awards and opportunities to do you know to help helps at the costs. Prizing. And he looks, you know, the, the, the kids that the kids that that race for him have have come through through karting and through the series that he supported. Yeah. Yeah. Good. Chris green and kids like that good series because there's good people running it. And you've got a couple of dates coming up at Canadian tire Motors park and finishing off in September at Goodwood cart ways. Ron we're out of time here as you know. And I wanna thank you for your time in talking about this because, as I say, I think things like the, the modem ouster run fellows karting championship are solid investment in the racing future of this country. And you're to be congratulated for getting this organized, you know, along with f I ain't everybody else involved with the karting seen in Canada. Congratulations on this the best with it.

Canada's national motorsport of already is indeed, the race line radio network. Do you expect run into an old buddy of ours? Nascar sage Ken Schrader who brought the U N P dirt modified tour to Canada's oldest and longest operating dirt track Myrtle speedway. Saint Catharines in NewsTalk six ten c k TB, Niagara, western New York coverage. Nice to get caught up with very friendly and approachable Missourian who still having lots of fun running tracks. The interview, though, taking an interesting turn when I asked the winter of eighteen career NASCAR races what he thought of the current Cup show. Always lots of fun to spend a few minutes with legend Ken Schrader exclusively on race line radio Ken. It's been a long time since we've chatted we go back to well, the old Cuba speedway. Bob slack days and running some ASA stuff in these C T stuff there and you always seem to be coming back up to Canada every once in a while, it's a bit of a different gig. But there's some some good memories for you in this country. I would think. Yeah, we've had a lot of fun. Guttering cayuga. I don't three or four times and. Primer end couple times. And then ran last year when they reopen it. And we've been up here run some tricks of. Last weekend. And well, I'm r- stone and south Buxton and here you are. And here we are looking forward to it. You know, you never have been that far away. Most people remember you from your NASCAR pursuits, but you always were connected pretty closely to the dirt stuff, member, you being super dirt week at Syracuse Jimmy Horton. I mean, you're, you're not that far away from the roots are. Yeah. Especially here with with the U. N P modifies while we grip doing it and only start around Cup car. We never quit doing it now, we still we still continued continue to run twenty five thirty five races a year. Did art cars so you know now we've just stepped back up, you know not doing any of the other stuff. But yeah, we, we never were not involved. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Sort of the NASCAR thing with the earth was always earn either and you need to make sure you stay connected to that. Because you say that's the roots of what you've always done. Right. Well, if you want to, you know. You don't need to do it. But we still enjoy the dirt racing big time. Yeah, Chelsea about the U. N P modified why these guys why not dirt modified or sprint cars, what attracted you to do some touring around in Canada, with you MP's. Well, I'm not the dirt modified your great this part of country. They run them. You know, I mean you know, in the northeastern states and then and here in Canada. They're, they're not a very pop. I mean they're not a popular car at all throughout the country. The US the little dirt modified. You can run them anywhere. You can run a midget name where you can run sprint car anywhere. You ran late mile about anywhere. Those cars very, very regional. So they don't make sense for us to, to do that type of reysen now. Do you, do you find that you still have a lot of fun doing this? I mean obviously you do otherwise, you wouldn't be doing it, but it's got to be spatial kick on driving a modified like this around the clay track as opposed to driving Cup car somewhere. You know, whatever it was. Well I mean the Cup car was great job. This is this is fun. Yeah I mean I loved driving the Cup car, but it's all different. I mean this is just out here 'em. Fun talking to Bobby Allison and a few other of the I hate to use the word Kenny old guard. But some of the guys that you, you think about no problem the way the situation is now there's lots of criticism about stage racing. You know, giving people their lap back and the lucky dog and things like that when you sit down on, you watch it now, I'm not asking you to hang anybody out here. But what, what? What is your comment on the way the product that you used to be so very closely involved with as it runs now, I think the product you watch now is ten times better than ever was tell me why I off the stage race as well stages. They're only two stages has only two yellow flags and most the racist through the six hundred three but it's only two yellow flags that, you know, when are going to be that's all it is, you know, and it's made those guys run harder, because the points they award and stuff, then we ever used to have to run before we got more cars in a pile on the lead lap than there's ever been. I think the product for watching right now is the best that NASCAR. The premier series of ever been Ken Schrader with us unreasonable radio. Some people say that maybe the racist need to be shorter and that's why we're seeing fewer people in the stands TV ratings have gone down. Some do you agree with that kind of an idea? You know, people's viewing habits have changed Kennedy's to be short attention span theater. Well, then we probably need to have less endings in baseball, because they don't have as many people grandstands that we need to have shorter quarters or whatever the hell they are and and football. You know, we want twenty-five lapses too much Saturday night then because because, you know, we don't have as many fans as we used to have. So, you know, I need to come up with a better reason for me than that can always a pleasure to get caught up with you, and good to see here though speedway. Welcome back to Canada. Don't be a stranger seized again soon. All right. Thank you, Ken Schrader ran NASCAR Cup from nineteen eighty one two thousand thirteen. And as we said winning eighteen times at the Cup level. In addition to the U, N P modified on dirt, he still runs the Arcus part-time and NASCAR trucks on the clay, especially at L Dora speedway where the only run under there. He likes the current NASCAR presentation as you're just fine. Thank you very much, Ken Schrader on race line radio. Would you wanna thank Don?

See we can't get a couple of minutes before we do that. Yes, yes, yes, you heard probably by my tone and the fact that I mentioned the word horrible about nine times to describe the, the steward's decision at the Canadian Grand Prix Montreal to penalize Sebastian vessel, five seconds for that move when he went off the grass, turn forum lap, forty eight seventy when he got onto the grass got back onto the race track. And when Lewis Hamilton following closely in second, he says he forced into the mistake I don't necessarily believe that any any moved over and, and Louis was trying to get around on the outside vessel jump back onto the race track and started to force Louis into the wall, never did quite make contact while the stewards in their infinite lack of wisdom decided that that was. An unsafe re entry under the race track penalized him five seconds. The gap at the finish. Even though Vella was the first across the line is, you know, it's all over if you haven't seen the race in spelled it for you sorry, but there's it's all over. It's all over social media can watch it and get your own opinions. But, you know what mine are that was not an indictable offence. It was not a the they that was a racing incident. That was not earning was not, you know. To award a five second penalty for that. I'm befuddled at to find the right word. I don't think justified at all. I think they blew that. If you watch it. Look at social media guessing Mary Andretti. Nigel Mansell are agreements with that they said that was a recent deal that should not have been a five second penalty, Directa finish, and you can see vessels response. I mean he stopped the car at the top of pit road was not even going to be part of the of the podium. So he went back cut through cut through the Mercedes garage offices. And then he went back into the Ferrari, hospitality area, and they said, no, you better go back and do the, the podium. So he did when back into the holding room for the golden, the podium was, was icy in there, but it's not Lewis's fall people when he came out. They were booing Lewis Hamilton, why they blowing him. They worded in the win. Yeah. The Ferrari fans got ripped off. Yeah. But lose didn't make the decisions. Don't do him. Amerifactors, leave and said, so don't believe boo. Lewis booth, the stewards made this bonehead decision to penalize him. I didn't think it was right at all. They ruined the finish of the race. The fans got ripped off and, and. And every once in a while formula. One puts their foot in it, and they did it again this time. And I just do not think I don't think that it was justified at all. I think that that'll, I don't think Vel should have won that race. I do not think that Lewis Hamilton had enough power or opportunity to get around him. It should have been vetted. I one of the season, but it wasn't of course, in the end in part for me. He takes a little stanchion with the one first second third. He took the number two and put it in front of Lewis's carpet to the, the, the jubilation of the fans in the stands anyway. Not fair. I think f one blue that anyway, Ferrari says the the the intend to appeal it. But I don't think you can, you can appeal a five second time penalty will wait and see if the actually do it, they have ninety six days or so to come forward with the appeal, but according to the regulations as I understand them. I don't think this is an appealable offense. So is going to stand the way it is, you're not going to get a reversal of the finishing order at the Canadian Grand Prix. And that. Indeed is a shame awesome entry. Let's get to that before we run out of time here done a sports net. Five ninety the fan is where million or Milan Delic listens to the show.

Canada's national radio motor sport authority are twenty-seventh, consecutive sees only across Canada. We are the race line radio network. Good to have you with us. We keep very close tabs on motorcycle racing. We do world. Modo G P. And of course, the variety with Canadian superbike championship as we are talking around to the season of the grand Ben motor plex, a very talented and personal writer, born in Bathgate Scotland just east of Edinburgh who now calls calling, what on -tario home. He won the season opener at Shannon, to sit atop the Canadian superbike point standings doesn't win again in the latest round is talking grand bend to a pleasure to have been young back on with us on race line radio. I guess it kinda dream about racing weekends. Like he had in the season opener. Right. Yeah. For sure. Yeah. All came together pray while, you know, Shannon does not so much a strong track for us in the past years. Yeah, it was really good to get the start from right from the get-go. I knew a new rule and into Friday practice. We need to be fast rail the bat. You know, and make sure we did what we did on Friday and are truly surprised to see the pace contain you voice pictures the whole race through, and it was good to, you know, to get my second career when Canea through Reich after end in, in such a great style last year, most were when the bike is, is running so well. And it feels so good. You know you still need to do. Tweaks on the thing. But, you know, at the same time, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. So Honey, go boat. You know, adjusting things when you it feels so good. You're really reluctant to do anything to it because it is so good. Yet, you do need to make some adjustments you, how do you balance that in your mind? Yeah. You like you say, you're right? Is hard to, you know, if it's not broken, don't fix. The problem also is we're always going. We're all pushing to go faster. So we're always pushing the limit. So therefore, you know, we're always having to change the bike to make sure it, can, you know, take the PC's through nor for only the one lap for the twenty to outrace, so. Yeah, it's tough. You know, I've got lots than trust in my crew worked together for many years. So I know that, you know, the changes those guys are making are the right ones, and we know that if we are have a pretty good south where we're out. We're not gonna mess with that. But yeah, you know it's just faith and trust in the boys and knowing that the, you know, they're I, I respect and and Meyer there ambitions, also as much as, like the have just as much emission to when f no more than I do you know, that we're all in it for the reason, so at, we're always working hard and making sure that we are making the right changes while you're on top of things as well. Yeah. Exactly. You can tell by the accent born. In Scotland, but now lives in Collingwood on -tario. Our guest is been young after winning the season opener in the Canadian superbike championship at Shannon Ville. So now it's historic for the first time in about a decade, the second round of the of the championship going into two grand bend, as we're talking you head in there as the points leader and Zoki, even second. He's third. So not only do you get the win. You've got the points lead as well. And that's gotta feel pretty darn good to yet, for sure. You know, the that is as nice. Nice. Thank to hop for sure a lot people CI's as a way on the shoulders for myself, you know, it's only the second Ryan this series is not a long series. But we sure we make everything Karen and. Yeah. Grand band, is, you know, it's not, you know, it's not really on no less favorite chocks, always seemed to gel with that as being good. So definitely having Kenny their round one help us to some points between us. And also, of course, pasta slop pole position and the race. Then. All those points off at the end of the year. And those are the ones that carried, so it was important to make sure we all the points Bill. Shannon Ville, and make sure we keep it rolling into into expedition. So, like I said, no, no extra weight on my shoulders. You know it's still early in the season, myself in the team know where we have to do. And we're gonna make sure we do our best. Sure as we talking, the res coming up grand been of course in C joking coverage on the network a year ago, nearly one your first pro superbike race. They're leading on the final lap. And then you made a little a little boo boo in the second last corner and the resulted in a win for Jordan's oh, but I mean, you can't think about that as you say, it's not necessarily a strong track. But you as you say, you gelled there you like it there. Forget about the air. You made last year. Right. The era. I mean last year was just straight. I of, you know, lack of experience judgment on my behalf. It's not a situation. I've been in all many times all, you know, recent against Jordan who's got fraud even know what what is when kens now. But so many wins in the Canadian survey series against, you know, me, you know going through my first. So, like I said it was straight down to lack of experience, when it came to the loppers, and I made the wrong move. So, you know is one of these things you need to learn off of not look back on into on it. So we, we learned our mistakes, and even going to Shanna there, when we came up to loppers wasn't mess around. It was pretty good. You know, you know stuff you know bars are going to get banged. If it comes in. Yeah, I guess that was just the lack of experience and making sure we're not going to do that again. A little more good news. You've got a new sponsor for the bike coming into this of immigrant van, don't you? Yeah. We have vandal there's home team joined as this for this race weekend, which is great and a local company to us in calling on sound a company that I work with in my job as a carpenter, we use their products and all their windows and everything. So it's great to, you know, work with the people that I work with on my job. And that. Yeah. Looking looking forward to, to have an on board for the weekend, and having some of their crew come and the owners come and visit and see sphere. And you know they're a racing family. Also in the on the snowmobile site. That's there. So it's great album, oats road race and should be a good weekend. Come joint radio, the bike the number eighty six buried trim. Scott built BMW s one thousand double are in some big mouthful. They say certain Mike racers have certain bikes because it suits their style this, Mike, I would have to think safely suits, your style for sure is actually one of the only survivor. Of race of how to go on a stock racist that extend back in twenty fourteen which is quite different to what the are now. Right. And actually up in Calabro Ye last weekend and Kenny, actually wrote Thomas Casaus is our one and, and Tommy road Canis that extent, and, and it was quite interesting to hear their inputs different an input. So I didn't write any other bikes unfortunately, but it was quite interesting to hear their differentials on the bikes. But yeah, no, the bait the bikes were great for the last three years and really looking forward to getting our Hindes, on the twenty twenty more dole when the come into Canada. Get not Bill Taupin in recent next year should be should be a real treat to have something new. It's, it's comfortable.

Fortunately, we are not recent bogey. That's just a vent for the lightly. Okay. VR as so unfortunately surveys won't be there. Yeah, no, it would be nice to get more. But at the same time, you know, the way the, the economy, is days, and is very hard to recent such a big country, you know, grown up in Europe and watching recent the kid, yeah. Just so much easier. You know, with how small includes everything together grand bands are closest to track it, two and a half hours. But when I was racing in the states when I was, you know, in my teen years, our closest track was jersey, and that was eleven hours. Yeah, no travel when I re and the bread survey, the furthest shock away was four two half hours for where I was based in, in the UK in presential. So you know, they just they're spoiled with how it is. And, and they can afford to do that, because they're not traveling as far the you know, they have all the find beast because, you know, such a smaller countries he to do that. So it would be nice. They get more. Ryan spot. You know, I feel like this. Series is a very good job with what we have right now. And unfortunately, we lose senior stash the collar next year with with the take over there. So we won't be there, but I know they're working very hard to get another racing Quebec because, you know, the fans in Quebec great great. They're, they're so ensues Yossi very European style. You know, when it comes to the racing and the law, that so it's, it's always great to raise their and hopefully, we can snatch another on their next year. But yeah, the series is looking up and it's moving forward. I definitely say one of the strongest positions as being in the last three years that Nive in the series. So and, and again, with the involvement of, of these other manufacturers coming in, and you know, it's, it's great to see that. And just keeps building this invent thanks for doing this.

So the fronts, not a classic race by any means. But will nonetheless produced it's fashion talking points. I'm your host. Joel joining me to look back at the French Grand Prix. I is Scott Mitchell. How are you enjoying your Sunday night, Scott? I'm quite tired to be honest. I don't know if I think, is a combination of, it's been really, really warm, but Paul Ricard in the south of FRANZ this week bloody roasting the last few days and been really, it's been quite long date, as well the fried, I think that we left the track until ten pm we go back to the house at ten pm tonight. We've plenty of work to do, and we're recording. The podcast was the time now ten forty three. Oh, yeah. So, yeah, that's quite well. We we still go. To get free away and then heading to Australia. First thing tomorrow, pretty much knows first thing is your next guest, though. He's a he's leaving at a time in the morning. Yes. We have four minutes to three. Correspondent Jack Benny new, of course, of course has been here this weekend. Looking forward to getting up at four o'clock for I know I'm not looking forward to that. But I have a very enjoyable weekend even have to show with you guys. And it's almost a year since I made my also a foreign pocus debut, which was in Australia, which next week and I think the, the whole that kept talking over as what we were trying to recall that book made into the top ten moments of the seasons disagrees Scott Mitchell has not been heard from for some time. My very very much. Like the one thing you were concerned about Japanese was living in the roof of our IBM bay. Have you worked it out? Whatever whatever it was. It was extremely active overnight last night. It didn't bother me because I sleep quite well. And I do snores, you both know. So quite a deep sleep. Whereas you seem to seem to bowl, the burn of the noise coming from the roof. But yeah, I mean it's been quite good Airbnb. And we have to credit, Scott Mitchell for his choice of his choice of stay this weekend is much better than last year is broadly, the reason I'm still in this job because of my Airbnb skills with IBM bay. Can you tell me if he's one large thing that lives in the racial, several small things, I think he's I can't work out, whether it's? Many, many duck sized horses or whole size duck. I'm really not sure is one of the other, which would you prefer to fight is standard question, then? Loss of horse size, ducks I can wait. No way. You've changed. Literally, the duck sized horses. I could tell you kick them. The we gotta say your first answer, so you'll done. Date, lots of duck size horses. What to everyone who is racing against Louis Hamilton, thought they were facing this weekend. The nice segue house, very, very with that. We can now glide ethically, working about the French going free. So Lewis Hamilton put it on poll, and he wanted niece, go. Basically the rice, what do we do for the next forty minutes? Oh, there's plenty to talk about. But it was it was an absolute Mercedes weekend. We always knew this track would be favorable to some SAD's are expected to be anyway. And so that, that prude and I guess the interesting thing was that up until Keith restarted victory. Potus lit like he had a. He may be were slender favorites Tapu position because even quicker on the performance runs quivering on in key to and then come usury. It was Lewis Hamilton. And by the end of the race, it was Lewis Hamilton by will eighteen seconds. I think he won by. The the gap was a bit distorted by many things. There was a phase of the race where he wasn't pulling away from bought us. So what he couldn't have done, and then it will go where to the reports having problems on the like nearby. Think I think it was also. Hamilton just has the ability to look after tires in the way that both has can't quite due to the same degree. Not, not when they're together. But if drivers struggled with blistering on the fronts, but, but Hamilton just seem to be able to get it back under control. Whereas Batas was constantly in conservation mode, and nursing to the finish. The reason I mentioned the deficit is because both us was on top of that p two on topping F B free on topping key, one on topping Q two, then Hamilton snatched. It were counted. And then translated into a really dominant. Rights performance in, you wouldn't have thought that bought has would be defeated so comprehensively any other point on Friday or Saturday, any other point of the weekend. You think you'd think that Batas would have been right there arms length? Maybe to just kept adrift not quite I was a long time, but I wouldn't have expected him. I can't think of anyone who would have expected him to fall nearly twenty seconds adrift by the end of the rice. We're looking at the rice. You mentioned the tire management thing, and it was very, very clear actually in the rice with with way, the pattern of the first stint. When of course, the top eight who are qualified on the mediums in Q two. So I start on the mediums. The software was not what you wanted to be on peak. As new Nancy this to the two slowest drivers in, in huge. Three ended up having to start on the software that might live JV Nancy in particular. But both of us had that period at the start when he stayed reasonably close to Hamilton. So a lot fourteen two point nine nine five seconds behind. Hamiltons edging away a point one five lap. But then on the next eight laps mistakes, stop says inland. The average goes up two point five seven six as both our struggles increasingly with with the ties on. He has a little bit troubling traffic and we've seen this a few times before Hamilton's fantastic and underrated ability to manage the towers through stint bosses struggled with that. In fact, last year, one of the reasons we kept seeing are slumping in rices whilst they stole management. It's been less of a problem this year, but we have seen it a few times. I this is another one that, of course, wants the pit stops play out. He was eleven seconds behind. And now that the rice the rice was done for processing terms of giving Hamilton, anything's think about so. I think this was one where we saw protests being similar place to Hamilton, maybe a tiny bit back. But then, when it comes to race in just that crucial management, let him down. We'll Veltri said after the race the when the star of the stints, they were fine. You know there wasn't anything really between them. It was pretty much like it was a weekend. And then yeah, she said the longer the state went on for the more exposed battery was to the point where you almost overhauled by LeClair at the end of the race because he was nursing the front so much the class slashed the deficit. And I think he finished like no point nine seconds behind thought about having a go into the final corner. He wasn't quite close enough to still second. Yeah, it was really close few problems at the end. Yeah. Misfired appeared lost seven ops from something other that held him back a little bit and the shoulders. The, the privacy of that VISA, which was deployed for Alberton joke. Kicking the ball down the track? It's one when when he clips, a Basu, slowly coach apple how sure that walls and ended up losing a bits onto the vast say, so kind of everything. Because of communist decried pressure on tools, the tools, the end of the rice. But ultimately, it was an enormous eighties concern. I guess Japanese of watching the rice ones after three gypsies were while even it's. It's frustrating when you don't even quite have that battle between the two. The two teammates when it comes to the rice, isn't it? Yeah. I think all the stars as we saw a really strong Veltri both us ready yet kicks any season. Exactly what we wanted to after a few last year. We've seen Lewis Hamilton rarely comes to the fore, now and really extend that got between them hunt win in the previous races. And yeah I mean Louis today. Just looked like a class above almost like he was in a different concert compared to, to everybody else. And it's it's always difficult. When you when you teammate is so completely dominant like Louis was today and voluntary. Still seemingly having a few issues tire management is you've talked about. And then I think also mentioned fuel niggly issues seem seemed like had misfire at the end. So yeah, difficult one for him is always difficult. When you beaten so comprehensively by teammate, because you affectively shut up the same machinery, mentally after try bounce back from that knowing the you've had the same con in, in essence, you've been set year seventeen. Down the road. He's in the position both. Because I'll say wolf about this often the rice because it seems to me that the falcons welts and low things with the biggest problem is still that's high management compared to Hamilton. Because if you look at the qualifying gap on average, although Hamilton's five three up in the qualifying to hit the average advanced Charleston's go is just six hundreds of a second point zero six one, so about says really done well on qualifying. And even when he's lost avenue style by pushing three ten sabre qualifying Lil bit misleading because he, he was not quite able to get things ROY in Ray with a with the window searcher and Hamilton picks up. So I think puts us was on a single up strong only comes to the races struggling a little bit. Like what we saw from Ross Bergen. She was twenty four when he's off non poll Hamilton, Madani turning around in the rice. And I think it just shows water challenge, pulses, God said to, to bother Hamilton economy needs to be absolutely is best only. He's been very good this year. But just it's. The usual thing isn't that you got your against all time, great driver. And they tend to make the very very good look ordinary tonight. I think I think bought us it looked. They seem like you guys on all about the Mabel. It seemed like he sort of dealt with this new tire better start the season and Louis seems to be struggling a little bit more with the with the new tire start the air, and that was real chance to, to gain some headway and pull some points on, and now alert seems to be in that window where he's he's got ties waking as as well as they possibly can oversee the teams this a little bit of uncertainty. When they're dealing with these tires. It's not one hundred percent knowledge going into a race about what they're gonna do, but they have a better idea now much more. You sorry many more races under our belt with, with these new tires, so, yeah, I think now Lewis is buckled speeder. Oh, but it's gonna be very difficult for poultry to find something is going to allow him to to overcome Lewis over the course of the rest of the season. What do you think Scott, you think assuming things continue as they are? And I think while we call them one hundred percent rule for our out of it. The title fight mistake something pretty for. Donal for to change. We'll ninety nine point five percent rule them out of the voice is down the protesters. And then I think the best will in the world is going to be very hard for him to to really overseas in well, the Amilton thinking that why is it Louis? Canal Ford finish second in the next five races and still being from the championships. Thirty six point guy, he's go here. She's massively to have this stage of the season. And he's seventy six points. I think clear vegtable. So the Ferrari out of it. They when be furry toy to the year. This it's an Oma. It's an old Mercedes fight at the front, and the moment, but has simply not doing enough eight races. Six wins for Hamilton to for bought us for our is don't look anywhere near in enough in the picture regularly for both tester to, to count. Both has basically can't win this title by winning that. We can't win a third of the number of braces. Louis they share when you talk to because if for that to happen, he needs to win races. And in those races Hamilton needs to be finishing fourth or fifth it 'cause Hamilton's is going to keep building up this run of a seven point gain here, a ten point gain here at seven point gain here. And if Potter supplements that with a win every four, aces, or something. He Trump is going to be over before we get to the flyways at the end of the season that, and that's a massive shame given how the season started. But how much is just amazing form of the moment bought asses started to struggle and the worrying thing is okay? Here we go to Australia next week, but as is very strongly. Isn't easy pin on two years protests? Yes, he housing evens Williams dies was strong as well. Exactly. So, yeah, we're going to rebel ring, and here we strongly on show. But then that's this is worrying is within firmly into the policies in where Hamilton gets mega Milwaukee is both are slowly drifted away. And as soon as I mean, we're already at that point where he knows that he's got massive gap toy the whole, so even needs Hamilton to retire from a rice, not the not the entire sport. He even Hamiltons have retirement about has gone to winning streak, otherwise will begin to be going into the summer break. Both as now. He's probably defeated and a receipt head dropping like the last couple of years and things just the season just ebbing away from hang him. An he all of our hopes rest on him. So vanturi on the options. You're listening to this employee. I beg you on behalf of f one and everyone following the twenty thousand season. Please kick Lucy's, awesome of the rebel ring. And if you could just put him off the road while you do it, and spice things off a little bit. That would be absolutely fantastic. We should disgrace in both us no copy ultimate challenge. His real challenge. This year is to sustain this level through the season getting Notre for, for the past two years. Because right now he's doing the job the Mercedes need him to really. So just. Joke them, the most drivers probably would he's running Louis, so close for all through the weekend. What were they separated by hundreds workday? That is so, so difficult to Batas. He's driving over one lap, especially to mentally higher standard at the moment, but he just e gone on top of this time management problem, otherwise the display Lynch shot the he's had a to the season is going to slip away, unless he gets on top of that, then his quietly will jump in Chica could plug into Colorado, where by job toba, I think all that shows is in a parliament told about quite a lot. But I think we're just saying how good Lewis in is, and we could I'm sure we could dedicate a whole pocus to looking at how Lewis is interpreted by people who follow this bowl, the funds journalists everybody birth. What, what you're actually saying is an absolutely phenomenal driver in voluntary. Baltimore is doing this year. Basically mitt picking into pieces in a year. Nice things is of looking for a championship five as the, the key thing in agent of see Ferrari this weekend, updates on the car. Must have been also going into the weekend is important for the direction, and then, of course, is very much a mixed bag where all they have they ended up only running the new front and rear wing in the rice, nothing. Apparently that the flow like went spec. They went so was two steps backs. They're obviously trying to find something Ferrari and. They tell stories about not being quite satisfied. That is, it's not great is because we hoping this weekend would get froylan, even even kale in the performance is less the baboons, he can put to one side of the fat that everything hasn't worked. So like there's a big concern. Yeah, they've got homework to do that was what not I said off of the race. It will it wasn't the, the upgrades, and everything they bought this weekend. I, I never expected them to launch them into contention because. They were always expecting to be behind. It was was always defined as something that was going to be really important for defining the next development steps rather than. Rather than transfer transforming their competitive pitcher at the moment, and not so seemed very fifty fifty after the rice, definitely can't be happy with former differently. Can't be happy with the father upgrade, certain upgrades didn't work, but easily say so keeping an open mind, the very much going down a different aerodynamic path now for the rest of the season. Now we add in downforce onto the call to the detriment of the top speed moving away from the aero efficient philosophy do Bank on of the star of the year. There's just not quite working. But if again, until facing because the officers said, the seasons basically down the not gonna win either talk so but they're not creature phase. Now where they're going to bike in some flawed concept into the twenty twenty car unless I the, the civil ready works out all they get some tangible on track results quickly, who cares really understand on your percent. What the problem is in announcer, solving that'll set that setting the direction certificate just difficult weekend. We could see they certainly a little bit with the front, send Vel seated announce his cO finances. So they're probably worth explaining, because he ended up qualifying down in seventh. But we could see what he was struggling with his. Well, yeah, he, he just he just didn't have any success really with the front end of the car certainly not as much as as the clouded throughout the lap. It was evident in the slow corners in this whole faster w PEX stuff towards the end the lap. The star he was he was visibly. Muscling the car harder than mcclary was going for tighter line being really greedy with, with the cubs on the run into the ten free right hand. Then you go left for four. And then into the slow riot five which is leads it's over like a double. Right is need five and six into free in five. He was he was much more aggressively over towards the curve is obviously a add Morlock applied to the stadium as well. So you see, see someone wasn't quite as comfortable when they turned in the car would stick, and then in the second part, the lap when it required really Muslim, the car back to the after the lone sweeps through the for the final few corners. Vestiges couldn't hurry, the car either not to the same degree, LeClair date. And then he ended up with running a grip in running wide out the final corner. So he was pretty much before. It was on the curb, whereas the LeClair held a bit tighter. Knit. Will there wasn't one moment, much like there, there hasn't really been one outstanding moment? The veteran just hasn't been able to match Lukla is just the series of minor, but significant setbacks. If you few why main minor in the sense that they weren't front off the road. But significant in the attempt ten and a half two tenths adds up if you make if you have four or five of these corners, I've let out with a causes not doing what you wanted to do. Exactly the funding pretty much condemned vessels finished, fifth, ultimately managed to pass the two McLarens of color songs, some landowners, unveil Troy to extend that I in lockup and called himself in basically lap on thing, the long I would have done much women in this somehow him extending master even further because the safety car, which would have helped him, but you have a different lots. I think declared deserves a reasonable credit this weekend. A decent performance from anything you go myself, because of pressure on key three performances, but. He he called the best. He could out the coffered in qualifying. Third in the rice had that little nibble of butter at the end. So actually even I've had a few feet problems, Leclerc credit soon forgetting what he could have also the car within that's a post, if we can. Yeah. Retied it we've talked before about the flow that we felt we had last year. The we didn't think it was a coincidence. Did we that he was the worst driver last year first string together laps the ideal lap in qualifying? And so is that the star this year is now knowledge that he's been too messy in qualifying hasn't been gearing. The car outright for Fakih freeze, nothing approach in the session with the idea that crescendo in key free. Getting the most out of it, then a soldier's goes out there rags every time and tries to get the best lap from man. It's just not that piecing it together. But he was I think he was flawless, actually I think he did a really good job in qualifying in the rice, he managed to battle by the attention of max stopping at the start didn't. And then as we said earlier, almost very nearly had the had the pace and the awareness, and opportunism to, to sneak second. Okay. He didn't. But I still pretty good. Second podium in a row further the season Ezer is building building. Noyce bit momentum now. And he's fairly come to become a maximum stop and red bull struggling a bit for pace and stop non-saudi comfortable with the car, and when they got on the radiator Clarence I we need a bit more over Verstappen's may show. We don't widow vulnerables. They undercut he pulled away in the gaps about six Atkins. He's always while Claire Verstappen. So, yeah, right. Bill very much third best of the big three stopping fulls place. Edit Vattel much battled. It close in Muncie. Clay the clay the McLarens once the second stint on the heart size to stop and be able to, to handle that gal sickles Vattel got to do the, the late pitstop for, for faster slobber with not having me on, on this job main skull tells about this before where do you stand on the point for fails to slap on the fact that it, always it goes to the person with the fastest car older person? He's done worse in the front grape another free pitstop familiar, just feels like a bit of a gimmick to keep the end of the race, excite in which I'm not completely against it. Out the little extra flavor to the to the end of the race. It can give someone who's other about weekend or some sort of issue joined the rice, and opportunity to come out with something in take some volume from the right. So I don't know. I don't think it's about thing oversight usually comes about by either. The person is checked off out into the distance, you know, how Vinson clean Arab push for up that vote isn't ready made much difference or someone who's who's not far drafted. I've got time to, to make a stop in person. I is on. So he's inconsequential in terms of the race. But in terms of giving you some watches a fan, I suppose it does give out a little bit of excitement towards the end of the race. It's almost in some ways a little bit more interesting because Hamilton was able to have a go at defending that fastest lap because. Vattel Bisi Canaan, St. the fastest lap on the on the last lap and events on his lap. He did have a little bit of a small battery issues. He describes he can charge everything. But so you're having certain on the last lap. Had to go at trying to cover. It was only twenty four thousand slower than than Velos, MRs on lap, fifty three and eight stops in twenty five so. So, you know that that shows the, the pace of the of the Mercedes is able to get that pace out the hearts is competitive battle during a lap on, on fresh soft. Yeah, sure. And the, the fact that you've ever the end surprised me a little bit. When I read after the race that he was worried about the tires seemed team if you want to be taken explain the drivers will move worried about the places in the team or because they were quite shallow. They look quite bad with their quite shallow, apparently, so that so I said, we'll says we weren't worried about them, but they were interesting is the phrase, the put them so they was. I think if you're a droid inevitably it's a bit more worrying Lewis Hamilton mentioned the lawn stroll blowout last year. And obviously, you don't have a tired, I can go when you're going through seen Flatow under ninety miles an hour. Now, how much runoff there is you don't you don't won't happen. Hamilton talked about the fact that he could see the problem developing on the tire. So he's obviously reacting to some invisible, which I'm sure is much more concerning than when you're in payments position in you're actually looking at various data in. Thinking naturally, this is fairly manageable to the end, but can definitely see why rejoice point of view, you would be on the sort of coercion, not ever says stopped Lewis gun for foster slap, because he'd realized by that point in that you go to control. Yes, credit for having a goes, well, incoming coming, so close on on on aged rubber. That's the says a law about the pace of the of the of the Mercedes, and yeah. A funded obey retyping when the driver in the back of out later just takes the phrase, Stephanie fats such skull. So the third of the way through the rice. I was gonna get sloppy you could see wasn't gonna go forward. And he already other gaps to the, and so it's just he was the guy who's going to do CPR gas and he's done a few times, by quite difficult rice, and ended up finishing while ten eleven on the road. You finish pay to pick up her appoints. I wasn't in a position to in the, any other Ed Bill. So yeah, it's a tough. I just I just find it a little bit strikes fear. Sometimes rewards the wrong thing. We know why I disliked the feather Hamilton lost the fastest lap. Tony. Denied him. His six grand slam. Yeah. Exactly. I spotted. Occurred to me, so bad teeth by free, the rights until hope hang on Lewis extended his pitstop. So he led every lap. Normally you might have one or two laps Wade, where you dip dip out. So you aren't Powell he'd led every lap who's gonna win. I need any go fast. It's lab. And so he's only had five sunny five times in his career. He's had that grinds very hard to do that. So amazingly difficult surgeries. Nice. Yeah. Definitely. So also, last client coal guy. He's one. We'll see on seventy nine wins. Today was seventy nine win. I think seventy nine wins ridiculous number of pope positions on yet things fifteen times. I think he's got fifteen tricks Paul foster slap. Unease go because only ever had five races, where he's one one, one the rice after starting from pole leading every lap answer forces up, so difficult. And I thought it'd be really cool if he go it today, because it's just not something you see very often. So I went in veteran, nicked it literally with the law slap the rice off the Hamilton, gone uncertainty that record on the last lap of the rice of all that, sir that slightly, less cool, but it must have a horrible feeling that must have been for Ferrari, fettle had a bit of a battery issue to didn't get full deployment on that final lap. But how much of a sinking feeling must have given them to go out there on a fresh set soft ties and pumping a lap? That was full hundreds of a second quicker than what Hamilton could manage on on rag at hearts, yet very very much. So you're famous. General twenty four Amilton fitted on. So, yeah. I mean, they were very they were well used cars, even the hall to a pretty pretty terrible is actually really important. The Trumpster was well, if you look at it because there's only eleven points clear if so those two points, quite important. Obviously, there's there's a lot to play out in the championship. I think a lot of the talk fosters point came in was was it going to affect the championship and how it played out when it comes to the end of the if the if those to remain. So close together, then, you know, we, we could be looking back at this Foster's really crucial policies and. Yeah could be could be difficult. It's just a thing, the way, the way formula tires in the rules really lend themselves to being a genuine so thankful that we've discussed that before.

We can call a science finished finished, six. This was a strong McLaren. They were so similar performance level relatives the front as I web in Bahrain, seems seconds, second very well, and they should have been six six and seven alumni, Norris at his had had his problems, which will talk about in a minute. But. Think McLaren of, of made some good strides racing in light of I think that that's of understanding of the sets up deepen the fact that in in, in Montreal in life. Go to call this working quite well works. Well in the long Cohen is now in particular call songs off to the rice. And he said, I feel about China and the loan combs we, we were struggling. But now they call the call working since doing all the one nine zero three instability here, speed through the Conan's going really well. And if you look at also the comparison with works Renos saying, McLaren seems rails, a guy while you're only a little bit more downfalls while maintaining the pace in the Middlesex. I maybe something more efficient car. We know that cost reasonably efficient one so could from claritins for them to be able to, to come to post close bay as we call it, and I should have had a say is, is very positive for them in the fact that it's I lost yet the tracks auto price and getting the best out while they had they pretty good. But the, the developments in the water tentacles, I was the second place seems to be. A year. Isis in, we can say actually, this is encouraging invited promising for them. I think say the, the qualifying sim was was was phenomenal when it was a bit of a condition of the, the circumstances of the weekend with the tracks facing the, the, the ambient temperature untracked temperature. But when we saw the McLarens going out there on the mediums in key to on showing plenty of pice comfortably quick enough ticket for on the mediums. That was that was immediately ah, an indicator of how quick they were but awful, what was quite interesting with Nico hokum bugs verdict on the cloud after the after the rice, he was asked by none other than our stained colleague, Jonathan Nagel, who said he wanted to know if nica was surprised by how quitting McLarens were on Nico said. Yeah, they were selected. They went night uneven. Uneven seriously, you send expect to them to be down the road bikes on how quickly wherever one lap and on Friday, but actually he, he answered abyss fulfill, the Renai was actually full of quickest call over rice distance. I still think that McLarens with the show. This is where it comes back down to the whole thing. About your qualifying performance is not gonna thing. So, yeah, we also have to remember time and didn't have engine upgrade. Welcome back to neither, but in Donnybrook that's Esther is difficult to compare as well, because she helped him background stuff, sit on the hearts, whereas chirons or on the medium, and then the heart heart strategy. But yeah, that's going to be very interesting battle. This doesn't mean McLaren's gonna be the full fosters call week in week out. But it's a it's a promising performance. And I think just the fact that making progress with the colors as the is the best thing in the course. London hours, you tried well, actually actually Norris, in many ways a better weekend sewing seem to be struggling much more on, on Friday normally, we've saying sewing kind of being chunk ahead on Friday and annoys having close white back the other way round this weekend. And then. Songs was able to get hats may depend to stall and he was a head an attacking for stopping. The first few corners of, of the rice sunset sakes, comfortably Norris had seventh basically wrapped up until until the last lap. We heard he was battling haj-ali problems, because he was told he wasn't allowed to use the IRS. And then there was talk about those problems with rail law, caring. And, and the shifts were working quite quick is hugs and staring gang heavy. So he was basically trying to get home in the car that was deteriorating, but it was a good good, good effort, even though he started the law slop. Seven finished at ten the Nangle promoted tonight off the penalties. I once you mentioned that north is in trouble. I switched to his own boat for the for the remainder of the growing praise. So had his radio China open house, well shave from his point of view. It's fascinating hearing him and McLaren talk for how to deal with it. He was reporting the problems. Macara Bisi sign. Sorry might this is this is gonna be. What you go because this department advice in token for so of what problems he'd have, and there was a brilliant bit wary. Okay. Landau. I the Tracy's told for the consequences, so just signed this is the, the, the cause gonna that the cause handlings gonna change steerings gonna get heavier than just pre warning him. And he signed steerings already go bit heavy in a since we've really breaking things we really inconsistent in yet. That's that's OPA the same problem. Just deal with it. The best you can. And then at one point they even said. We've seen cars get to the end with this. So there's obviously a serious bit of who is the car even gonna make it to the finish. And then of the season, a heartbreaking that last lap because he's done, so well think he'd done a brilliant job. Especially when you're nervous in Cobb team of kind of make him realize this isn't few tall. Just do the best you can, and you'll my stead way, start law lap sevens parts yonder type from from Ricarda in controversial fashion. While exactly what we call the attacks the chicane. He went wall in color, coming back on. This is very much to regard the topic of leaving the track and rejoining when he rejoined in the middle of the chicane dot full Norris void off the track. And then, of course, because helped Murden ROY with a Norris lost allies prices drop at the time for the Roy Keane. And briefly cops or seventh recalled us a little bit beyond the track on the runs the scenes retake that seventh-place so recalled. Got to separate five-second penalties separated by about five seconds for the offenses for those those things. So what, what do you make about? You think that was that was fat? Yeah. Think so it's not often you say driver tip different penalties it fit specially when it's for the same thing, basically, our felt you overstay she said the whole issue of going off track coming back on, on safely, forcing another job of track is a hot topic since will happen between Hamilton invested in Canada. But I think this on this occasion, justified on the grounds the recalled, I did run wide he Alan. Hey comes back on in a manner. The force is not only forces nine landowners of the track. But it drops in two was to free places until you mobilize team place. So. I think he's playing come on, like we should remember as well. Recall, there was rejoining, whilst as a result of going off while trying to pass Norris. Yeah. Exactly. So it wasn't like it wasn't like it was just a just a mistake on his art. All he was defending Roy's content just but recall, the I couldn't quite work out, because he was bit. They go Larry on Twitter afterwards tweeted, one thing deleted tweets, the slightly modified version of that than shed another tweet, and he, he was obviously annoyed of go paint allies. And he said, basically glad I went for instead of just sitting back. Fair enough. But ultimately did cross the line on. You've got to pay the punishment for for that. Unfortunately. And it was hard rising in decry a really cool image of the free for cause was just overnight briefly. Get full wide at some point down the, the round to sing corner. Yeah. He can't get away. We can't get away with that. So thing I think it was a justified penalty. I would I would say sin, as we go Benon were hit with us. It wasn't the worst, but of driving standards over the course of the, the cost of the weekend is a whole for a Paul Ricard two separate penalties. Might be quite rare for a drama been banned one weekend. Even if it's not NFL. Drove himself is, is quite unique, isn't it? I think first time since the penalty, which was ensures that phone in twenty four in the driver's been bundy's not system. Mahavir recognizing the MP motorsport driver receives is twelve point over the Costa Rican for three infringements on virtual safety goals over the course of rice. So it was quite interesting. Even more interested in is the fire you're gonna look at rule in future now for for the support service because that rule obviously designed for Formula one so. The the word and of the rule is for the next round and therefore Matvey was able to raise today in the sprint race. But is now banned for the next round in Australia. So unusual punishment but basically, probe by some some regulation word, and we've talked about quite a bit recently in many different parts of especially Canada. So I know it's the mossy Obama look a lot with his contemporaries over the next few weeks and fumes in Dublin making a change for next year. But yeah, some there's always been just endorphin standards in influence in and former three but yeah, it's, it's, it's interesting. The is kind of a weekly occurrence for for those championships. Whereas the intensive the of magnifying glass on I've wanted them in is, is seemingly a lot higher than usual, so yeah, for may the recall the incident with Klay. He was trying to pass Norris. Wasn't like he was a head. So for me to give back in a difficult one. I mean, Donna, must've known the London problems at that point, obviously time has run out. Out in the race to make that move. So I guess Donyo fell a little bit buns. I about trying to make that corner. And it's the lost obvious place to, to make them eve what you've been able to do it later on a lot with, with London shrew in one hindsight issue that you can have really nothing. She came was his John's ultimately, I think I'm blaming for having a guy or just shook owls wasn't quite rise that left us with Kimi Raikkonen finishing sevens. Nicole guy, Londonorce ninth. And he picks the final point. But scientists Ricardo shuffled also the points to eleventh place with with title of ten seconds penalty. Those five seconds in quick succession for for him. But he yeah. Bet big Kosti for the iron rice Noces, all the talk about runner-up rights called an Jenin this economy, the railroad iphone. So if I was that might be. It's not terrible. But it's a little bit. It's still not quite where they wanna Bachchan, recite. I think run by shipping and position, whether whether I the front of the frontal, second best in class b most of the time, it's still still not quite whether expensive say to pay attention to be that consistently. I free every single rice lot winning Cosby breaking away from that pack. I think we need to see what happens in Australia to be honest because. Paul Ricard this weekend was a little bit weird. The temperatures the track conditions made it slightly older than it's into a big swing in performance, if you if you hooked up. So even bigger than we've seen other races this year. When they've been biff. Tire with Thai witness going on. You could argue that Canada will be the new normal. France was one of. Will tentatively from the, the level of performance runner heading candidate among, I've been one often that actually just yoyo all season long. The upgraded engineer Nakada is call seemed to be a good step forward yet. Jury's out on the upgrades hockberg wasn't massively sold on them by the end of the rice weekend. So that will give the engine as Lopate what they probably not quite to the same degrees Ferraris filed out grades. But I think I think Brenner yet may may be way. We'll give them to a free rises to get on top of the chassis upgrades, enrolled out the engine upgrades across a full calls in judge them properly. But the, the students to save it more from them, because it has helped him back said they might will be the full fastest car in the rice. But that means nothing in modern one. If you can't qualify is the full fustest not very, very sad. So significant flam looking, but further down rising point such oppress, twelve long stroke, thirteenth, Peres, obviously, and also team symbol so mall. Snap SAF now were concerned about the he'll at five second penalty went off its threat lockout. When round the ball of us mind say about then did also rejoin it's and five a couple of positions higher. Now, the I think Peres arguing they will follow the rules. I went around the Bullard has requested and rejoined well swells the problem but ultimately asking each by not making that penalty. Also justified. I know. The there is the limits instructions exist to try to enforce the rule that if you got onto off try guy advantage, but it doesn't mean will on the rule is quite simply econ go off the track and guidance advantage. And if he made up places than us we did. So we'll see spanked rise, isn't it? Yapping is pretty pretty click on, I think one rule ivory the other other, otherwise, you could theoretically will stop him if he says, all ago I ago for the breaking on just tighten taking locking onto degree cone. I'm just rejoin the leads went around the Pohlad. It doesn't it doesn't work. Exactly. Unlike tight take to take it to an extreme. So you've got one a setup where he's actually quick. It's going through a pit line than it is to, to go free. The final PA ah lap or something like that, then you might as well just cheat at some point that gives you a dry free penalty tight the free penalty because not actually gonna punish any like I said, it's no way to this does not. We rise, the penalty, the system that exists to, to stop people getting adventure. But guy off the track is for normal situation on a normal lab. You go off there. You have to go around that Balado name rejoin night, will be slower they die simple. But on the night when there's concertina effects in everyone the, the field compresses in a bit stop-start. Yeah. You gain an advantage in has said Bank to rise reported without penalty. You can you can have drive as go off pasta bald as well. So happened in free rights with rep where he was, so he had sake of AC of action attorney and was already possible ought to the point where he took the evasive action. So we quite rightly pointed out, there would about to turn round and going back to go around the bald. So he was actually paying lies in the race for even possible. And then it was actually rescinded during the race, which is quite unusual, but could see Schumer to keep an eye on things in, you know, willing to go back on the changes they've made but. You can't live in Diabolo all got to be. He's at Princeton seychas merchandise. I'm can way you can't live will come on, on the podcast wants, and I give you a bestseller worldwide t shirt to, to show for it. Yeah, we'll look at the, the online podcasts shop up running in a few months starts starts on. I think that it's clear. These sources circuits office writing there has to be some kind of common sense applied to some of these some of these things of Saito also have been a difficult weekend. Caveat was always going to stop in the back, yet the specs Ray hung the parts and not chicken crip penalty candidates, full Saint out of Alexander Alvin who started eleventh, but he ran wide coming out of the first call now. And then he, he said he lost another couple of places Tutu thing. Thing, right. Peres rejoining cost him a little bit Iraq. And that's that mandatory size memory points in scientists. I finished ahead of JV Nazi, you feel a little bit sorry for because he make you three. He's been call unfortunately this year, and I think people have right now. I don't think he's the night show the club. He's a good driver needed. He's not qualified. He's out paced rocking. The three times in the last fall prices in qualifying. And I think I'd like to save over just a good smooth normal weekends and might be picked up a pulling till safe for the fest, Oxy, still pointless, Sadruddin Costa Williams drivers back, Roper Cape. It's finished ahead of Russell Russell Troy Topolski bet so early on around outside of saying, Ron wallet took up a lot. And then nights, stop in order to change the, the front wing. Interesting. Random status that jobs. Russell Crowe growing that's the first time he's been classified lost in grand pray, which considering he's been condemned to the worst color by some margin for allies know about that's not a bad record typical Josiah's will start and the bringing some the podcast is interested in the old three of the to promote east. The I the share all had nightmare raises poor called law share in out of all three of them had pre-poll racist. She comes welcome. I think that will be happy to leave Londonorce. Stole in his cO last year. Joe rusada some censorship from memory on the on the Sundays after winning the Saturday race. And Alex open-heart engines rolling qualify. Michelle manifested. Again, in the racist is also not a nice place for to promote the combs circuit Paul Ricard. And I'm sure all those jobs will be happy to leave very much hasn't. Eight will strive is another very very difficult weekend. Current maximum seven. Saints grow is college, retard lights on these going nowhere. That's still struggling baffled by the car. Just just Konkan. It cannot this is now becoming quite serious fast. Because I go caller fundamentally should be called correct religious called anything with going to Stein. Describe your think is the worst weekend in the team's showed history. There's a Mexican growing pre a few years ago, but moronic it without Ed horrible Mexico. The expectations is high about them. Australia starts firing off. I think he's, he's writing this situation. I need to find a way round dos bites Kevin magazine, also the rice and he just. Got. No. You also you still saying, well, gee to do even failures to what was causing this just deny that can't get any is there quivalent of Ferrari, turning up to a race weekend than just inexplicably failed into to, to make indicate for just on on on role struggling donning nine ten for eleven four something under to explain why that's how far of hassle from where they where they should be on. If you're gonna say, what the role potential of each Colorado's has his much, much better much quicker than it's been able to shy definite is happening. So many times now. So this serious work to be done that I guess, we should because we mentioned after a little bit Jerry Jones gave us a little bit uptight on where things all with after to could we convict race was not it was good evident race, hasn't overalls, fecund, which is the reasons possibly. Cover them in champagne. He did it did quite interesting story, actually, after the after the bucket around which follows formed, one his laundry, backwards throwing the Ben accidentally. So his overalls were wind and the he had to pop song. Throw in the Ben because of off. He he showed a willingness to throw a bits all using true, but it wasn't. It was row pushing it was a member of the L take won't pre-tape who will remain anonymous for the rest of history for the safety thoroughly enjoy posturings good all school thrive with oversaw cards. So it's good. That was a shame because Ralph is really struggling for budget. And seems to be more technical issues in the most of drives contract hope he'll make it off share. But yeah. Nick the race. How does bend overalls and had to borrow formula, three driver David Batman's overalls, which meant he was apparent on the restroom with German flags as a as a stronger, which was quite an interesting image to say, but in that period of, of wearing payments overall you want to raise his and finished fifth and seventh and had a fantastic and it's rare. Deployments championship contention stole the lead of the Trumpster this weekend from nNcholas Latifi the Williams junior. He made his F B one debut with a team in on a on a race weekend, anyway and nNcholas alot belts, pastry and admitted the is, is mccaren junior. Dumb team might suggest has come cameras. The better of the two drivers this weekend and really struggled. But still he was cooperative. A fitness was about weekend him. That's that reflects a good week. And in that sense, bionic diverse taking the Trump's laser set. Unfortunately, we can make sure he was smashed into into by teammate sent into an apple collision claves. Okay. But yeah, he's really struggling fifteenth the championship. So I'm sure the, the F podcast listeners will be interested to know how he's got on the minute not very well. And yeah. Of c-, we've got the Northridge temperature which is emerge of the European formula, three and GP three from Russia. Good start for Robert Schwartzman. The Russian drivers a junior also backed by SMP rice in as well. He took a, a sprint rights victory from seventh on the grid today and. Yeah. Interesting weekend. The Saturday was yon dollars. Dive him and primer of one every single rice. I for over the, the earth race have also is can be interesting to say, how develops nice that we've got after having a massive gap between boss learn Paul recalled for three. We're gonna have a about about weekends. So be interesting to really gets great without season, and ready savings knots plow. The yes, yet to ready. Probably tight shot gap, it will fairly fairly rapidly. So some really could rising Ireland and f two and f I suppose sculpt, we should very, very briefly, and I am going to say this guy briefly, we do have to refer to the Ferrari petition Canada thing just to explain it, but we're gonna do it very, very quickly. They lost. They did lose. They won't the position to appeal the petitions a review rather. They had to present some significant new evidence to the stuarts in order for the stairs site. Yeah. Okay. We'll. Open up for review, and then we'll have the review hearing they presented about your seven things which were camera angles to mature GPS tighter was whatever. Was different current velvet this testimony carrying Chan dogs. The analysis from Scott very, very good piece of television. Franken piece of analysis, not piece of opinion very competes within not evidence. And basically, the seven things that this Jared side will five of these things are not, not new. They said Jan hooks analysis is new, but it's not relevant, which we took great joy mentioned into him than we think dozens. And dozens of member of members of the farm. Paddock didn't by the seller the best. The best thing was, I think, assoc- Korean friend of the podcast is one of the few rice he's not this year, and, and every time so happened related to him to this. Here's getting messages from people go. Let's go ahead. Each just thinking dot Phillipi. So if from going to very, very funny, but yeah. So that the students said no, that's not relevant is new, but not relevant. And then the, the other one they, they set that the helmet have rather stay the camera pointed towards battles helmet. They said yes, that wasn't you. But based. Showed us while other footage. Anyway, so it's not it's not significant. So they seven times, I think, basically throw he's throwing the kitchen sink in to try and price door and guy review. They didn't work Sebastian. Vales five-second, melty. Stands. Louis handsome, integrating cooperate. Yeah. There's a very good summary. Yeah. It wasn't. It wasn't a very good. I don't think he's a very good attempt to get review. It was interesting for me from watching it from the outside because it looked like Ferrari trying to trying to close this off and they kind of the only spoken about anymore, and they want to move on. And they want they wanted to focus on, on the Paul Ricard weekend. Whilst also present in new evidence, and keeping this going. Yeah. That'd be the reason it got dragged out. But I wouldn't let us asking questions about it. Absolutely bizarre. Just one of those things is now think it was, I think, instead of the loss podcast is always a tremendous longshots, and they just they just try to get something to stay together. Even then I think it was the regardless of what you say about, whether that should have been a penalty, I think, as we've discussed before, under the rules as it was a correct penalty and the stewarts kind of the three of three students came in person including payroll, the former phone drove the multiple among winter. And I think I came in require open minds to look at this evidence, but you said. Oh, that's just that's just nothing. Yes, I was all about that. A bit of a damp scrape an entirely predictable. Nothing again. Morticians. It's been so interesting to watch it. Play out for me the way it's been handled by for the whole situation is a perfect reflection of holiday seasons gone. Yeah. Yeah. It's it's been ill managed dragged out on after. Exactly. Yeah. It's been. It's not been good. Nothing. That was a wiser. I don't know whether for all we felt I had a series, John states. What was the phrase they use overwhelming evidence? Quiet overwhelming, contact welding evidence. I'd say, very, very underwhelming evidence. Take books, questionnaires isn't it is your is your evidence quite overwhelming. Very overwhelming. Not very overwhelming or not overwhelming offering John doc. So I think it was a doll. I love to know if I really thought Matt a chance this other, it's just a bit of a hits an higher. If they've been able to get it into a review situation, they could have argued that a little bit differently, but they had to show his Nissan anyway. We're not going to on that, but we did have to have to wrap it up, and we shall never speak of it again, because it's it's dragged on quite low enough where we're going straight on the Australian grown pre. Beheading heading out there tomorrow and yeah, I think it should be. Potentially not no circuit that the gives Mercedes, quite the same same volunteers parts thing anyone's dispensing frog to go there. And, and when so more of the same nine in a row expected. Yeah thinks I, although I did implode in Australia last year. So there is hope Aucoin Jodi last year when Maxie staff on one for red borders, red bull. The Austrian of really good event. I really offend sweats rentals per so much insa into motorsport and remember last year after the rice, teaching Massachusetts that the owner of red Bill of sleaze. Somebody speaks a lot may dot com thing and he was panicking. He was just beaming. He's ready to light it, because obviously, I think cats the this red bull grown previously offensively as with a with a victory. So, yeah, no not tipping Verstappen to, to win, but it's it was nice last year. So we'll be bad thing again. But yeah, these are ensure on almost the title and unless something seismic happens pretty quickly. An interesting thing will be safe if possible rebound, and if he can get some momentum going because it would be his third polarizing, suppose. Is he really needs something to tennis? Rounding is explained earlier in the podcast is the list is mountain as to what he has to do to beat Lewis how to in who just happens to be one of the best drivers. We'll time so you really need some something spark often, maybe Australia without point in aids to kick. Kate by contraction every truck like so, yeah, let's see if he can he can live and things up. What do you can read all the fallout from the scullery remember where we are from the French groom prayer, or I was, I was talking earlier as if Hungarian going pre next week, I was getting to the via this told me the rice comes they can.

Is Mick Schumacher the real deal?
"From. Spoke. Kost. We look ahead. Twenty nine four minutes. Suzy's an osc is MC Schumacher the real Dale. With its three drivers from lost year's field all racing in Formula one this season foam credibility is proving ran for drivers on the brink of the big time has never been higher. But can this year's possibly live up to the one that brought us George Russell Londonorce, Alex and his mix you mce up to the challenge filling shoes on your heist? I'd struggle. Joining me to look ahead. Not just this weekend's opening round in Bahrain. But the whole season is fest all correspondent, Jack Benue ramming. I am go got my old socks on today will down syndrome Wednesday and very excited about that. And I'm looking forward to discuss in the season ahead. You've definitely given away record. When we go to this as well. Yes, I'll have a good day the smoke and mirrors have been removed. Cool. So I'd have problem about Weldon fuel for your worthy slinky's. They're also the American flag which works quite well today as on my welcome has been announced alpha reserved to one of our two drivers. I very much. He said enjoy we will briefly mention vodkas show much reliable talk about him. But, but then we also joining me as genius single-seat specialist, Marcus Simmons, very familiar with a lot of the drivers informants failed. I'm a little bit concerned because you are legendary former three journalists and foam three kind of as we know it is sort of ceasing to be now see there is formula three that's amalgamated with GP three, but it single Megan's kind of old f three in the frontline doesn't really exist anymore. Does of it were you might be lost well legend Cioni, you at many maybe infamous, and yeah that the F I formula three championship as as really I just. The J three under under a new identity. And no there's anything necessarily wrong with that. And because Jay three produced a lot of good drivers over the as, but it's very very different consent. We will start with you Marcus with a knife three repeated question because as a huge amount of attentional mix shoe mce son of Michael she mce graduates to with primary seeing this year. Of course, very successful driver enough. Very, but what should we expect from him? I'm what you should expect. I think he's flashes of really good performance. Potentially potentially the old run at pope -sition and a few podiums over the AMA may be winnowed say, I'm if he's not quite and up to that level, then definitely consent if a reverse grid wins and just as you know, may expect someone who's one that European three championships at today in the festival minutes as in. I didn't see him as being an astronaut favorite by any main seat, you deploy that to driver like Nick, defrays and. Well, what we have to remember is that the championship. He won last year and formula three it had eleven different winners over the season. And really in a in a championship that doesn't have any gimmicks like reverse grades, or and success, ballast or whatever. And this shouldn't be eleven different winners over the season. It's that's amazing Mark that it wasn't a particularly outstanding. Yeah, decent. No. You stunned. Exactly. And there was some. Potentially. The standout drive is the ones rookies or in their first year of the championship last year who given a second year would have then looks really fantastic. And and people people harked back when people took classic f three seasons. They took the nineteen ninety three championship between ads and center mall, Tim Brando. And and that was the where those two drivers one but two to the races. And and one that they didn't win was when they took each other out and another one they didn't win was when they ran illegal tires because there was a there was a concurrent European championship rice, and they decided to do that. Instead. So they went on the control to say p people talk classic seasons in in a formula three as being ones where there are two or three absolute standout drivers. He everyone knows going to the top. But I didn't see that in in the European three championship last year. Not a lot of pressure on makes you mce given who he is. And and on the family name and everything that you think that has any kind of impact on him. It means there's a lot attention on him. There were lots of rumors swirling around last year when you had that strong runs who will end of the season about how level the playing field, etc. Guessing EV it's ably draw ver LA that will attract those kind of that kind of tool excetera. You're right. I mean as far as the pressure in expectation of the name and the people around she MAC and his family and his management and the primates aim as well did a very good job of insulating him from that, and the they would know media sessions or anything that other than press conferences, so say he was he was kept well away from that and the prime raisin for that was the the German the Germans have Lewis in there is bad as the tabloids. So. They oversee once it's just protects him, which is which is heading to this question. Vice fall conditions. That's right. Yeah. So they did they did a very good job of that. Even if it was frustrating for the specialists like ours, and and that catch him nicely protected from from the expectation, and and all that kind of thing and towards the towards the end of the season, they they lift it, and there was some sessions at Hockenheim at the final round. And which finally enough it was the weekend. He he won the championship and he had a slight dipping form that weekends. But then not often happens when someone I only has to do the minimum to win the championship in you got some slightly nervous steps but going back to what you were mentioning about his his eye opening form in the second half of the season. And it did it caused a lot of rooms to be swirling around the paddock and is. I don't think the truth is gonna come out for many years, and and. And whether whether there was anything guiding on we just can't say all I can say is that primer. Are at say pride themselves on providing SAPA quips who'll that drivers say so I would any out anything that if anything has happened. It would be something completely out side of their of their wishes or control, but did seem to be a little bit of a split between the drivers towards the end of the year. And robot Schwartzman was the other premature he was performing exceptionally. Well, at the end of the year in at the same time and the other three Marcus Armstrong. Ralph our in Guangzhou. Fulham came inconsistent. Oh, mediocre. And and that was a very difficult thing. So put your finger on and I did. So it's one of the drivers and towards the end of the air. Just just asking. If you got to the bottom of what was going on. And on the answer was that that if if I if he told me, then he would probably revising the end of his career. That to me suggested. They're awesome politics going on in the background away. Having said that I'm sure that nothing illegal was done, but we should sign fence to make she Macura that the kinda step in full, and this is based on basically following your coverage of the championship that he did kinda take a step in qualifying pice. The rice space always been a fabric stronger should recite. So there was also, you know, it's ever adopting and learning and getting the best out of themselves as well. So he's clearly a good driver. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. That's that's why that's why it's shame that that these. And whispers were coming up to the end of Los as him because he is. He's a good driver. He's he's learnt well, he works hard. He's popular with same wait way till we do like a driver like that today. Well, because he's actually a nice chap as well. And say what what is important is that? His career is seen to be one where he's gaining his results because if because of his talent, and I'm show I'm show that he's capable of getting some good results in full minutes. Say you engine to see how she gets on jet. Will you expecting them in line with what Marcus says in terms of getting consistent results? If you podiums may be Nikko Nikko in lighter and seasonal ROY or Sunday victory with a reverse grid. I think it's gonna be really interesting to see how mitt guts on. I think the biggest thing to to consider with F to pretty much any driver at all times is that the the most important thing is to get the best out the pearly Titus over say make his is following that step that many of made coming from the pain of three championship on the quite gerbil hung cokes very difficult to manage parolees. The biggest problem is you don't get any sense is on the tires. So join race as you call monitor temperature. So the drivers have to warm up the tires on fail and the Pearl. He's a very narrow window to get tired. And now we've already heard from Mick and Renna. Reni Roseanne from primers. Well, that that Macau struggled at times to adopt to the Perlas intestine. Nothing new. Nothing. New not surprising thing, it's whole for driver. Coming from European rates a few problems with parolee. So it's gonna be interesting to see how he manages that new thing is the the amount of time that the guy's got enough to and the variable track conditions, they get so definitely along with the and the ties into the right window. The most the second is important things. Remember about activities the decision will be done on the on the medium tie that weekend. And then they'll go into the qualifying quite often of six seven eight hours apart. So the conditions would be completely different. And the known to us off tire that they won't of you so far not weekend. So the ability to adopt and to be on the pay straightaway against some really tough Junius Anglesey or position is ready. What makes you know to thoughts of? That place where you can really craft some some brilliant drivers. Because some would argue that you don't have to be the best driver today. Well, enough to adopt adopt into too difficult consequences is is the hallmark of you know, any good driver. So we've seen London OI, George Russell, Alex Albany graduate. So I formed you alluded to at the star and friendly enough. I think the this after season is gonna be very similar to Marcus described law. She has three season with the eleven winners. You mentioned doesn't always show the sign of a good F T season. I think we've got some good jobs in this championship. I really do. I think this could possibly make that next step. But in terms of last year, you can't judge this after failed based on what we were looking at last year. You know, Georgia Roussel went straight from winning GB three into into after one or two, you know, it's it's a real shame is gone in Williams because I think if he'd gone into a better team he could have done a fantastic job against the strong teammate. I think he's the real deal Landau. I think we discuss this. Day add to think Lundu how to a few difficulties with qualifying which has never really happened in his career before. And I think a lot of that was getting the Perlas into the right window and struggling with without through the season. And Alex album was a really interesting concept because he was an one picked favor and so of came on massively through the season really buoyed by this dumbs team ready gave him the encouragement that you needed to to push on find that next at which obviously phone Leonov jumped him into the best iphone say the spy London, George out formative most of the season. So yeah, I think it's is going to be a very interesting season. We haven't got low stunned out characters that we had last year. But we've got love drives on an equal footing, and that should make for some really interesting by truck while we get on some of those is in a moment, let's say from McHugh macaroni. And this interview put out Kremer racing recently. He talks about his preparation objectives for the year adopting the inevitable comparisons to his father so here for mixture macro, and then we once apart. So you where we can talk a little bit about the the preseason favorites. How testings go. For myself. The winter will I guess like many racing drivers. We train a lot. I did some different things this year such as maybe a little surfing a bit of running biking. I went to won't place to be able to do that. So it was for. Sure. Nice. And then. Yeah. A little gym neck training. I think the the really the special parts we had to do for forgetting hundred percent prepared feel one hundred ten prepared. So you know, the three good and feel just motivated to get back into the con-. Oh, my goal for this year is I think even more so this year to learn as much as possible, you know, gather all those informations around me work with as many people's as can to be able to to learn from everyone and news information for my for my good. And so, you know, it's going to be a bit of a different challenges. Here. We have a lot more people surrounding the car. So that's. To be for sure. Nice and different. So I guess that's something we have to get used to to to work with so many individuals and every individual has his work to do on the car, and I think to be able to work with all of them together in teams going to be very nice and very special. So to to be able to get a bone to them is I think very important especially at the beginning of the year. My first impressions of two was very good. It was very good to feel how the tire the grade and and how the taiw- works. Therefore, I'm very curious about how the real tires will work as. As in the right temperatures as the right grip on track and everything. So I'm very much looking forward to that. The F two-car itself. Looks a lot more aggressive in one way. It looks a lot faster than than the three. It has just, you know, more pointy, edges and kind of special sizes. Oh, because it's very big total the car. So it looks a little look closer to f one car in in a way. So that's something that are, you know, it's good to see on track. I think the step itself, isn't that huge. You know? Okay. We do. In terms of lead times, we're quite a bit quicker than F three. But it's more. So I'm stunning attire. Yes. To understand the tire one hundred percent, and you can be sure that you will do good job. So I think that that will be the most difficult part in a way to to understand and also to you know, to to grow with. I think that the tire will be one of the biggest challenges this year. Even though. Working with the team as close as we do in two. Now, I think is also a good challenge. And it's something that you can you can kind of get into into knowing for maybe some future steps, whatever that is something you get first inflammation, I feeling for. So that's good. So in terms of different and driving. The if car is a little heavier festival. So the low speed corners the cars bolaise year. So you have to really, you know, work the car around the corner to to get the rotation was the three was. Yeah. Quite a bit lighter. So it Drexel foster as well. So we could sling through chicanes foster in most be otherwise in high-speed. We have a lot more downfalls with you have to but a little must beat as well. So the speeds in the corner itself and high-speed are lot greater and therefore. Yeah, we we have to work the car won't. I'm part of the Ferrari drive academy this year, which for me in the step. I am now. So the two step is very positive. I can learn so much from Ferrari because they have so much experience. And so that's going to be a point where one to work with them to be achieving maximum. I can. The first impression is I had from Ferrari were so hard opening, you know, coming me in family, which was always part of my family. So I guess, you know, the combination of of both was very very positive. And and yeah, I'm very happy. Being compared to my father was never problem for me as it's pretty simple for me. Being compared to the best driver in history is the goal. You know, you wanna chief and to have that as my my idol, and my father is is something very special, and I feel honored to be to be compared to him because I can just learn and try to improve the fool we return to the world of formula. It's time for an update on the progress of the Facebook seem in GP manager, which is available to download on on -joyed. You sign up Lincoln the in scripture of the show, you will put coastal night. If you have valuable click through the sign of it's well worth doing. It's also valuable in prowls as well. Well worth a go. So we had an online poll to decide whether we would work on the breaking all the the handling and sounds about grades quite close. It's breaking might get up in the end. We went for the handling upgrade handling one of the many things you can focus on rather than different. Pulse of the call. You can focus on characteristics, which obviously similar in previous varies the cost that you can go for celebration. Breaking cooling, downfalls fuel economy handling reliability and we've gone full handling based on Twitter votes on auto sports accounts. So that put us into the Chinese girl impre- with a improved co and improve results Alta finishing sixteenth and lost in the St. rice managed to finish fifteenth. So we would call incremental progress. Always thing you can only improve putting one foot in front of the other step by step as they say. But the pressure the pressure is on in those few areas of the call we still need to improve. But it's a it's a great league. It's been some really good racing. Jason mo- some serious teams in the in the OT league that we're trying to look respectable in. But currently firmly the back and looking at ways of improving again resisting temptation, so to blame joyful who'll preps fool the next rice. Coming up, which will appropriately enough be in Bahrain. But that will be next week. It's interesting interesting second could be a bit of a challenge because it's quite home fuel consumption and one of the you can look at the characteristics of the circuit before the rice to say what your takings like the track services like it's high whereas like in the field consolidates haunt fuel consumption. I say cars right to one on fuel consumption. So Shelby speaking. So you ought technical director about that particular challenge because we do need to see some improvement in. That regard technical director, incidentally, is named Manoel son chests, and obviously on the precious you recruit stuff technical directors chief designers will doctor to look after the off the joy such so yeah. Wake gradually getting on soap of myself and my management same for it is not a single handed effort. It's a very much a team also split we're working on on getting more competitive and hyping fight for points fairly surely though, I think now we're at the point. Describing the first full rights of the season as an extended test. And then when we get to Spain new rights that that's when we really what will happen, and we'll be able to show up fullness. I again, I'm signing reluctant principal abbots. Yeah. It's well worth ago. It's a an engrossing addictive game. You kind of struggling in the pack. It does it does just like in reality. So GP manager Ohio SA enjoyed check fraud sewing up Lincoln safe. You can do a little bit better than us as a little teams that better than than been doing. So it is possible. And yeah, just gonna keep plugging away and after a difficult start with confident we gotta come through his season progresses. So download GP managing now. This study Larry history won't be made millions will watch as eighty years of unjust stigma is left in the past a product the drove good people to the black market will be revealed as one that's creating a new global market, this February what inspired the symbol of counterculture will at long last be seen as just culture. The new normal is coming. Will you be one of the first to see it? Visit men dot com to watch an exclusive preview. Japanese we've had six as a preseason testing spine spread out across serandon ball, Selena. So he's been catching times and who who you'll title favorites? Well, mocha's lead to Nick Therese's being favor. Eliana think is halted poss- him looking at the preseason testing times. He talked to all the days apart from two. So we had a three detested Herath unafraid ice boss Lona job is to top on any point said Joe said Tacoma who dumbs show talk about him in a minute. And also make sure mccoo spoken about limb for a day. So the the these names to keep cropping up. Don't the the same kind of names of crop. Nick show. A lot of pace switch from from primary was with air. And now he's with Guam prey drive. The the call George Russell took to the last year. So there's gonna be no problem with the with the machinery is going to have underneath in this year. I think a lot of people wanted him to to well, we're expecting entity battle Aaron he sat some brilliant pole positions of say, the the Buddha. Best police and spa as well. We're up -solutely tastic when he hooked about prime call. I think he was emotional touchable. Because combination of him and not call were were upset brilliant just a lack of consistency through this as in few silly mistakes, look as well, not ready humpity as and when you find against people like gross old Norris Albain really can't afford to be having these inconsistent weekends way. What you're dropping points. So there's not really any excuses from this year. He's going into a call that we know he's going to be very very quick with a good base SO, which is for f- to for the reasons that we talked about before about need to adopt quickly. If you've got good pace S pin. Then the easier to make small changes in into ready to get the car in the right window so base. That's the goal is is is very good. And Nick should be Nikki definitely be from running. Like, I says he's the highest rank returning from Las tease full championship. Austria interesting thing with very sommes. He's always been quick drive. US strokes joy who may be struggles. Tiny bet for that consistency. I. Your season. That's maybe been his on doing. So is that is that the cave him this year, the aides to make sure that the Ricans pets because we know he's good weekends are going to be very good one hundred percent. I think the you know as enough to drive you've averaging twenty points a weekend. If you want to win the championship thing, that's the kind of baseline. You've you've got to go full points for feature ice one twenty five. Okay. So you need to base it needs the average of say weekends gulping down. You're gonna you're gonna have retirements in Bhadra reliability instaflex dot, but I think you know to beverage in twenty two Russell was about twenty two. So if you can be about, then, you know, you're gonna be a championship contender in like you said Knicks struggled, sometimes you've consistent sable. You know, this is as investor you now, and he's not ready to excuse after that he's been fighting against some some good opposition. He's very good teams. He's had very good opposition this point. Now, the lessons to be learned. And if you if you're driving look into tight lot next step, and if one is the gopher finnick, then this as in really has to be a dominant display all. Of taking over polls fusses lops wins. He's ready come out fire in and show that he can e Ican stand the heat, and that you can pull into pressure because what we've had with with the likes of of Russell. I mean, you can does Jochem from Los as on most fallen teams basis on teams looking to happen after what happened in two three or four years ago. And last year we had album excluded. We had Norris. Russell two rookies you came as the jumpy chip did really well dominated season gone straighten. So I fall so now they're phone teams that that look in a rookies who come in and doing very well. And the sold looking at drivers two or three seasons into that career everything can why haven't they won't straightaway away like like, George Olindo half. You know, what's wrong? What's happening? So is it difficult for Nick to be gone into as few drivers outshone the greater going into the full season. So for me for them to ready make that next step. They have to be completely dominant is not going to be in a full them. So if you set the races five of your amendments such. On suppose, we should bring Marcus. So you know, him from three he was replicated joy in threes. No longer, rebel Jarvis. Okay. Tell us about says set, and what you've seen him in An Giang, quiet. Fan of set Kamar. He isn't an justifiably say, and that was something that we that we so flashes over in formula three say, hey spent he spent two years in the European ship. Driving might spot. The fest was promising and not go him the red boo genius support for his second year. Now, they're occasions where he was absolutely blinding and. You just couldn't full him it. So he would an baseball lap time. There are other occasions hippie mired in the middle of the pack for nine Oviously reason, it could even be could even be the same day on the same track. Just different qualifying session on a did that did seem to be a question. Mark IVA his his mental strength because the fluctuations in performance had ni- ROY Moore raisin say the menu wondered whether. Having dumb. Well in one session. He was in applying the pressure to himself and underperforming as a result of that. There were mistakes as well. He was very unlucky in his seasons. Red boo janea in fullness Ray with engine reliability. But I know the drivers in the same team went having engine. Let's see. Let's see and. He just really wanted Ike. He's brilliant quick. But does he is he the complaints? Cool. Not sure about that. He was he was brilliant in Macau the end of that year when he when he was yes, she went to call in for the Macau grown prayer. And he let that rice and up up being really interested to say how he's done in two years two and please for him as well because. Yeah, he's a he's a good guy. And he he really seems to have and turned to Kona really in and and become a much better round drive at any appear to be three days. Nothing you points. Very volley demo 'cause I agree with all of those. Yes. To show this in all the lot more rounded drive because that's the bit. That's been missing. While thing will say very interested in this situation with we've set Kamara is. Overstates well-known that Nick race has been mccaren junior his career, and there's been no solve official announcement as to continuing the share or with the of preseason team pitches and things like that sets a camera was included in all those. And there was there was no solid Nate, debris, so not racial. Exactly. What's going on there? But I think it's very interesting. The McLaren of hot essays of saying what set set is all about. They've had the data that London has been producing from from f to and they've seen a direct comparison between London and surge, Kamara and they've been impressed that they've taken him on the test development driver. So this clearly something clearly talent in this clearly something that McLaren of picked up they needed someone to do. The simulate that London has been doing for for the past two seasons. And the the person they've picked they've not gone with someone who's been while it looks like they've not gone gone with someone who has been a pre existent McConnell junior in diverse. They've gone with set Kamara instead. So the the the big question Mark for comedy share is a switch the dumbs because he was with. Calling the team's champions share team knows. Well, as you said Marcus from from Macau, we knew them from there as well. So team he's got to know fairly well over the past few years. And now he's switching to a completely new completely new team. And after after the first test he was completely left scratching his head. Because he couldn't believe how different the dumbs drove to the calling call. He just he said it felt like a different car almost that he was driving. So very interesting to talk about his mental so situation because he used to eat taught me through his thought process while while this was happening and he got in the car, and he wasn't particularly quicken in her. I thought he was in the car to start with and at this point. He was thinking I need to tell the engineers to change this needs. Tell them change that needs to tell you know, I need all these things change in for for the car to work properly. And then he said I sat back and I thought Alex Albin set three polls in a row. So of power rain is are the three next races albums on police around. And he said if the call was good enough Alex albums put on Paul for three races in a row than his clearly a good car in the pro maybe not. The problem. But the solution hair is for me to adopt my drive in style. So he spent the rest of the Herath test just into the card different driving styles and stuff like that. And then when we came to the boss loan test dentist this time on the second day is looking a lot more confident in the car the race paces from tastic, arguably better than the Alta if not on par and the only sort of the only issue looking at the start the season qualifying pace. But the other thing we've got remember there is when you look at test in conditions cooler in Barcelona, then they're going to be in Bahrain. So I think we're going to say a little bit of moving around from what we saw in testing through to Basel free to borrowing. But yeah, I think KOMO is definitely a an interest in prospect similar to the reason this ends that got show that he can provide the consistency. Huddle of reliability starve season and that kind of thrown off a bit. But he came back after the broken hung came out very strongly after the after the Monaco crash and showed a bit of mental force Judah. So this definitely question marks. Over is no doubt about that. He's not the finished product. He's not ready to go to form right now. But. Over the course of the season. He's got the he's got the chance to prove with without McLaren buck in them. No in east got the pace. They've, you know, he's ready to call that Johnston press share and show the he's he's ready for next up. So you happy with the racist. Your number one favorite in such Mars. You olympic? I think looking at the race. If he can replicate the flashes of speed that showed, you know, made it to the east is driving the car from share with a load of data from George Russell. You know, you have to make him the favor on that basis. It was a scrappy season frolics album rarely could have been you know, he could have been much closer to title. Finding could have pushed George law forever. If thumbs about a few weekends, and they did have. So for me. I I still think that car is the best and the combination of you know, Nick, potentially look and how he is intestine. Look seem seems to be on for if he can replicate that still think he has to be the favourite by think that there's more upside to search. So does that make sense? But we've had a good chat about three drivers Nick racist favorite for say. Sergio set Kamara dams as the as a kind of number two favor. And then we've covered mix you Mak. He's at primary a little develop drivers worthy of no Marcus, one of those is job unite wealth from three rice winner in European after five memory says he's Guangzhou. Oh, yes. I wondered how does he you're introducing there. Complete field of what it Polk that's a good question. Probably very actually if you just want to say one Pyrenees take formula Reynaud performances. I remember I remember saying Nick defrays absolutely wiping the floor with everyone in phone arena rice runner, junior drive hype nation only shoulders in China. So he's a joy with is a lot of interesting. I guess he's career up to now is been maybe not quite lived up to the the interest. There has been an embassy house showing some some flashes of real speed. Yeah. He's he said, he's a quick his equipped land. And he he came into this started last season in formula three which she's third with with a winner. Po in the first round save which oversee made in the championship leader. But some when when I say that says former three obviously everyone's going to tell you what he spent a long time in that category. Then didn't they but some video she only had one year car racing before he moved into three weeks, which was a season predominant in the predominantly in the Italian F O championship. For memory. I think that. The intention was to Cavaliers at four. And but the first season went so well, and then finished runner up in the championship that it kind of carried him into f three almost before. He was ready really say what we what we saw in his first season after it was very rough and ready Ghana say, hey, occasionally would would bang on the podium. I'm a lot of the time was buried in the middle of the field. And he did he did develop a lot either the remainder of his time in the category. And and people forget that he was a proper title contender. I with the first half of last season in the European f three championship bit about half the field were because of what we talked about before Sam he he was up there. Maybe his consistency. Wasn't as good as you might expect from a title contender on his good days. He was. Scoring enough points to to keep him at the front if that am title battle and then middle of the season. Just at the point. When shea MAC is forum started to become ready good. He got involved in the most ridiculous run of incidence. None of which his full he was just he was just Mr. unlucky really wrong place at their own time. And Anna that firmly knocks him out of out of the hunt se. So I'm pleased to say him maybe formula say after after three as and three publicize ready. I'm he can perform well because the vet UIC team. Jacks had more recent experience of but but off nine Andy writes, the same boss there for for almost thirty years now, and he's that was back in his David Sears motorsport days in formula Vauxhall ISIS and before then he was engine nearing Pacific racing. When they ran JJ later the project three jumps in nineteen eighty eight. And then he spent a long time at supernova in formula three thousand one which basically was David says, my sport, but just with under a different name when they were the absolute dominant force and say virtue is e we've been running Russian. So I'm for the past four or five years. Let's look familiar got I experienced. That's right. Yeah. They're really top notch organization and just the the majority of casual casual formula, eighty followers. No, not know the name of really say. And alongside is. Dr Who I think is really underwrites it Lukic iota. And I remember when he was battling for the three Tartu Esteban Okon twenty fifteen and. Yeah. And everyone was thinking there must be something. Funny going on there if guilt oh can be battling esta Vanna Cohen who you know, is really really talented for the championship for. That's more foolish. Really? Because I think what what he's done in GP slash f two since then as shown he is really an decent prospects. He's massively underfunded from what I understand. And it's always a bit of a struggle for him. But but please to say him in there. And I think there's no question that Kyoto is going to lead that team, and he's going to probably be very very good benchmark for for Joe Guangzhou said measuring himself up against the Luca was in dot team with Russia time in two thousand seventeen when they won the teams championship. So Lucchino team. Very well speaking to underwrote as you mentioned before over earlier in the week. And he he thinks Luca your social beer talk three prospect, which is a race winner. In this lovely didn't win rice last couple of Winstons night had a difficult season become pasta don't think that was ready to be you know, on the podium, really. We saw boom raceway at about Alex Alberton, call just edit size completely. So I don't think that call was read in Lucas got very frustrated towards the second overseas. And I think that you know, they weren't close from USO of maybe like he was wasting an or the end this is a big year for him. Now. It's virtuosi underwrote seems to think it will be in the top three. I think he's got to prove that, you know, if he wants to take his career further, the one thing I will say about virtuosi is with with Russian time year, they under a certain extent with I was gonna mention Tatsu Makino, you know, very, well, Marcus as well, he did very low racing outside of Japan and still didn't know many of the tracks. When he was enough to share in. Thrown in massively that Eappen forty soon in in my opinion, still as the Russian time lots to tell me one just as many races London slushayete because he won. He won the Monza feature as without outrageous strategy, call whether started on the on the median tires in the head of the rate is at the head of the race from fourteenth on the grid before anyone even made a pit stop the their strategy is not good. So the the point being there that the team know how to bring on a driver who's inexperienced, maybe doesn't know the trucks or is is new to the championship in. They did the same with awesome Oncle spent five years in table came in as a pretty green rookie didn't star of that. And I think that's where Jerry as as as everyone calls him gone Yuzhou Israeli gonna benefit from that experience of that teams go it's the same personnel that Russia time of hard for for many years now. And I think that's a, you know, a situation team is really going to excel in because they so used to bringing on drivers he may be on the finished product when they come in. But when they leave their abetter better driver in a better prospect and. That's why that team actually is a bit of under aid under the radar pick for you know, challenging for the championship. Joey should be in the top seven or six or seven a law of the season. And if you believe what one the Roach says and Lucretia fighting for the championship in his difficult to to prove try and proven wrong, this point to be honest. Well, thank you slightly scattergun approach to the rest of the failed. Throw a few other names that we should talk about them. Strove nNcholas Latifi, Jack. He's a driver. He has had some success this level last year was was disappointing. So he saying him as a credible threat. Or was he may Maleeha sort of win on his day top driver. Well, he's a driver's got one experience. Now from is reserve drives law of testing with the likes of race in point switch this year to Williams junior. Also doubt we balloon in much more with his is Williams out than he would have done with this race in point ones last year ever. Always to drive the Williams Formula one segment because of that light star missed out. Exactly, exactly. So not the best in that sense. The maybe the one point now, we've nNcholas is the Los in is law. Of is sort of is difficult difficulties any down to his illness in preseason testing, which many lost the loss of the ruining their and what actually happened this season was completed all apps anybody else enough to so he's definitely not gonna have that excuse later in the air performances up to scratch, but he showed a lot of a lot of pace in the second half of the season. I it looked like spoke to him. And we were trying to work out a phrase that described what happened, but it was like something clicked I think was the one we we came to Indian something clicked around Budapest than his his second half the season was much stronger pretty much on par with Alex actually second of the season. So much improved in the second half the season all is points lost in the in the first half, and it was difficult to analyze what was going on because he'd been so quick, oh, this is his two career in you know, really fought for race wins. And then suddenly it was just in really the back of the grid especially in qualifying. So the big step in this year is going to be as qualified forms. His needs to put himself in position to fight for you know, better positions by qualifying better. Especially in the first grade races. So. I think that's going to be the key talk get him this year. So I was going to mention when he was talking about Saturday set Kamara at shea that I think that will be quite interesting him up against alongside Nick Latifi in the times lineup because people people have this perception of him as being rich boy because, you know, long straw, wealthy Canadian, but he's actually really really quick on his day and always has been throughout his career is just a question of making those days more frequent and which he has been doing in the last couple of years of his career and going back to his early days in three he was he's always safer fast in the quick corners. And and quite good Suwat spits. But yeah, he's definitely not want to underestimate. He's got one of those qualities as well. As some, you know, many of the job is already have don't get used to is that when he gets out fern is very difficult to pass it. You know, what if he's on pole or if he's got to the front of the park, then you believe it's going to be a difficult race. If you wanna win it because nNcholas. Brilliant from the front of the race controls racist. Really? Well, so if he can if like I said if you can just qualify better, you'll be sorta position to really fight for proper points in and bear championship contender this year. The third highest rang last year those returning so also gonna make some credible one. Let's look at grouping of drivers because plenty of the the leading GP three drivers graduating this year, you've got Makita Pinna. I ought say Kalomo alerts in salvage units, which is which is the surest team answering Huber who won the three total art and Andrea Lacey something Sunday rice specialist for Charleston. So those four who'll preeminent GP three drivers which allows you getting excited about particularly difficult, isn't it? I think some of those rookies are gonna really tough time to share Juliana lazy tried and they were there the back of the grid of the constructor's championship point. So it's going to it's going to be difficult to expect too much of him. Try obviously that difficult season where that so of horrendo-. This mix of all your mind in Sonnino fruit and in Sunday, no fun for a while. It was good to involve. It was good to watch from the outside. But it told team apart effectively, you know, not just from that incident. But from well before the incident, the the tension in the team was was awful in some really lovely play room, not chart and say, and it was it was horrible. What was happening to be honest, but Giuliano not game sickly excited about I mean, a little surname. I love the same helmet. That's really cool and you see that call game around. And you takes you buckle Ober, but only only one reverse grid races last year. So not to not to not expecting too much from Giuliano and his first two simile. We've got all eve a rookie lineup in on Hebron and Tatiana Calderon earlier in the week for for I've see preview which comes out today. And he obviously discussed the situation ordinary, and they had a difficult year last year, the one of the the racist over stone. Marcus. She would have dealt with max at great length in twenty seventeen fight with London. Orrason kind of started season expecting those to both be fairly similar for coming into. After certainly not one of the front of the one of the back in you know, that was down to to the team. The drive is to take some responsibility for up in their last year with with no food Kazimi same as well. But a lot of that was down to two Auden. They've signed this partnership show. Hey for this year, which they're hoping is going to drive them forward. But hey, subway, not particularly experienced in in single seaters. And also the relationship was soft signed quite late. So there's not been like, a, you know is not gonna sake monthly time. If h two engineers kind of helping out Auburn hair, this has been a very of quick thing. That's happened rapidly. So often definitely really struggling qualifying pace at the minute, which was very obvious intestine. So if you're struggling qualifying pace as much as they are they're really gonna struggle to score. Good results. Antoine's very, I think systematic driver would be the word. Describing lights going for the data is never happy with his own performance. He's always unlike and everything is done. You know, some people say that using GP three too long. You know, if he's going to, you know, make appropriate would have come out of GP, three quicker, actually think the the lessons learned and the the maturity that you showed in GP three law shares as shown while is not ideal spend seven years and GP three and seventy years on the junior singles each a ladder. I think he's learning lessons, and you know, he could be he wants to watch if the machinery starts to perk up so of second office Asian, and then we had Callum Isla. Do you wanna talk about columi- lamarcus as on very well? I mean at guest on the podcast. Yes. Exactly ads of out of those JP three graduates coming in. Art say I'd say calomel is is easily the possessor of the most natural talent. Probably a question of using that natural talent and put it in place to get results. And because his he's he said it. Himself his formula three form he was he was incredibly quick sometimes, but lacked consistency. That said a pretty fair assessment. Really? And then J P three Las Jay said. It was funny that he was not very quick with the consistent. Now, I can't believe it can be as simple as that. That a driver is going in one year from being quicken inconsistency, consistent and not quick. And the there will be underlying reasons behind the form that he showed in nj P three. But yeah, we saw him back in three McCullough at the end of last year Carl and he was right up there throughout practicing qualifying. It went adrift in the in the race. But he I think he's I think he's super talented, and if his potential can be harnessed, hey is a proper contender is just a question of doing that. He's a. Yeah. The sabotage same as he mentioned shrews. Hey, they're a decent amount. But I've no. And they haven't. Had become a top team this level yet. Let's not say they won't be. I'm not quite sure I can see that happening this year. But I think Kalomo is someone who's prototype of some some really good results, but we wouldn't expect a championship challenge. And he talks about twenty bad, Jack, who I I really like the way you guys about things 'cause I think he's the fastest driver on the planet. But he is very very methodical with the way he does things and yeah, we we had him in the European three champs ship for season. And he was appropriate contender and wanna race in that. But I'm one the we didn't mentioned up to now other than your brief recap of J P three graduates indicates a massive pain. And we we can't forget that. Okay. He's F three four is pretty patchy. Hey was a property p three title contender last year. And and and he's in alongside. Fraser IOT say. So he's going to he's gonna get some good results. And I'm from what I've from what I've heard he's since moved out of three he's been working so much harder on his racing. And we we saw we. So he had silent NF three. But he's now applying that and he saw the result last year. I think it's going to be learn if Nikita he's got legal George Russell data to go off in a very experienced to drive in degrees alongside himself. This is going to be a, you know, he can he can sort of not take a box because offensive toward him because he will be very quick. But it's a it's a year where he can take in. What's around him? Can learn a lot from what's around in the air after he should be a proper Trump contender? And I think we all those drivers who taught by linked to Hiba Mazatlan. Jay cues doing a f- I threes. And was the other team. I am Kalomo law. I think if you look a OT through through G P three history they want pretty much every title apart from apart from the one with call. And there's usually a couple of drivers are very quick you saw of Sofer from being in the this confines of four call team so competitive, I think Kellerman, and Jake were probably the two that got that last year and Nikita while mobile we're able to keep that consistency through the season and seem to seem to have that balance. Right. And we're just able to compete on a on a weekend by we can basis. So his Collins a lot to prove the share today, but he seems to think they have to call sue style a lot better than the GP three-car, and he was quitting JP three as it was. So if you thinks he's going to be some massive step forward enough to really really looking forward to seeing that and cheroots it was I Eason in to share in after a massive step for shrews all of the World Series by Renault. Their recent stuff is Ben in foreign now they've gone three as. So they're trying to build a proper ladder of junior singles e- championship teams of people from venomous of offer a cherise and run the team this new people in there as well. It's all Varmus for personnel. But but some here experience math ratio, they they've got a chance and not sob link-up is a lot more is a lot more of a heavy investment from from sour Berlin. Maybe for oil last year, they had the Ferrari name on the call last year. I don't think that rape brought a lot of the team. Whereas this the Sabadell sober intent on given as much as they can to these drivers really helping them move on. So they're going to be an interesting prospect racism on Tonia Falko last year and efforts to so we can only hope that they're gonna step forward again as well. And we mentioned career at the top of the show, we weren't gonna talk about them too much. But he got very ego rap in GP three last year. He was he was a head of David Beckmann in the points before Batman made a midseason switch, Detroit and instantly started winning races. So I think he stated Jens over the whole for the whole. Season and definitely open up there. So he's a very inexperienced driver. It's going to be very interesting to see how he goes up against a rapid team. In in Kalomo. We've mentioned his team champions is calling. But we haven't talked about that drivers. They've got Louis trash coming back for another year after finishing tennis lost journal. So Nope Hiramatsu sheets are returning so f-. So he's, but he's been here before remember putting on the front ROY for his his w e Kende things kind of went downhill from there to patchy Tyne moments. A quick jog your couldn't quite get all together. What do you think about lineup? Do you think your teachers are going to be able to step up and get the kind of results we expect from a team champion saying this very impressed by Louisville dodgers's patient intestine, actually, Louis very likable art, so no, if you're Dennis the phone driver, and he's had a lot of experience in in different junior, singles forma formulas. Now, he has a lot of superlicence points. But now he has to step up and prove he can drive onto forward on because that's what he wants to do is. Y fall on target drove the car in the Abu test at the end of last year. So how some experience of a pretty current Formula one car? The the big thing for him is making that step is going to be quite difficult to mature. So we've talked about ready. It was I season to this is going to be Louise, I I with the prophecy enough to in the sense of when I say proper does sound disrespectful assuras but team won the championship last year is clearly a proper outfit. So Lewis got a good team in Nobu east got to deliver on that testing pace. Now, it's difficult because who didn't really say the best of of Louisville atrocity share, and it's difficult to pick out one thing needs to work on because really needs to work on on pretty much everything. But also think ever could have done a bit better sharia Sasha quite a bit of bad luck taken out of quite a few races. Hudson technical problem so things together for him. He he seems to think that he's going to be a championship contender their share genuinely believes that. And looking as pace intestine. You have to say he's going to be you know, it's hot five contender for sure. And then nobody seems to be a little bit behind. Louis at this point after testing, but has had a time as you discussed and coming back into the fold in this new cars going to be different. Forums got used to drive in the the turbo the cars. Heavier the halo. So in that sense. He's he's at a bit more of a intensive preseason tested. Insensate? You've got a lot to learn. Whereas Louise been able to work on his on his race pace on his qualifying pace to sharpen those things a little bit more the the or you need from last year. So it's a very dynamic and interest in line about one one that's got the, you know, maybe people don't know Louis to well, but but he's definitely someone to watch for for for top five finishes, and nobody we don't really know is going to be a maybe a slow start season for impossibly. But I think towards the second of the be she'll being contention for wins Canonica protection. You can. Well, I this. This is a little bit dependent on Massachusetts getting up to speed in as a car that he's not rice before overseas had plenty of experience in the J P T, F T and see. Formula last year. But Karlin won the teams championship last year. Looking down the list identity anything with two surefire contenders? Whereas both Carleen drivers properly solid top five or six in the championship. And I think calling could will win the teams championship again. Very well run same. I'm really well organized. Good engineering and two very solid Drovers journal. The damn slow surely don's is good lineup is is is we've always thought about this early. It's a it's a very equal field. I think is probably the best word to us. There's a lot of good drivers. In the law of teams think one thing I mentioned about Louis was sort of rekindles Israeli ship. Stuart king call in who engineered him at full tax this runner up spot in in World Series by Renault. So he's with an engineer that you knows well in as aloft success with Marcus. I completely agree thing. Call him on the Trump to share and they did that through heaven consistent finishes. You know, all Ghibli times drivers were better than their finishes. But they they they offered consistent results didn't make any mistakes few mistakes pitstops last year. But they can if they can nail down. It'll be very interesting saying, I think this is always answers and say over Sergio nNcholas in the sense of you know, we saw nNcholas the first nNcholas the first off, you know, he went missing. And you know, for whatever is not was it didn't the yield results we've talked about Sergio need into too much his outright speed with consistency. Whereas Luen Nobel just really solid drive as Marcus Eddie. We're just gonna from the from the word go they're gonna get good result straight away. And if you talking about teams championship you talking about consistency. And I think that might not be the fastest line those too. But definitely the most consistent in looking at the paper now about every single there's any others will we'll talk about we'll see jackass compulsively disappointing season last year. But you know, he's a job semen championships in the past. Strong on Jordan King coming back with M P motorsport likely. We don't know that one yet while I'm all out could I have done. Jordan Ken coming back with with MP, multiple such colder on was mentioned in passing. She salver -ffiliated links. Take a step forward from the level. The cheat in GP thrilling. It's fair to say drivers people excited about seeing. They I'm interested to say how jacket can gets on campus racing. And you might have been wondering what the scrap of paper here is that. I brought in now. Yeah. Chuck aching sea scrolls say he he had a. Could say it was a nightmare as a RT alongside George rustlers. J finished eleventh in the championship. It's I that's pretty grim really. But when when you look back. You have to go back to twenty twelve to find the last time. I ought as second driver finished in the top in the championship. There's always they are the the the absolute. Dream team two guys if you wanna be a championship contender. But there's always someone in the other car he struggles if you only have to back one year one year beyond Jack to twenty seven Alexandra and finished tenth in the championship. And he went onto damsel austere in oversea launched himself to a Formula one career on. I'm I'm not gonna I'm not gonna say I oughta can only run one car roughly because that's just a lazy thing that people would would jump to conclusions about, but it is quite a funny. Qualifying run I'm going to Daniel apps in twenty thirteen finishing twenty second in the championship. And we know a bit better than that. Good. Good fact, you ought to proceedings, but gains campus, he's re linking up with an engineer. German engineer who Suman who he work with a coherent and in formula Renault, and I'm John seaman wasn't on Jack's car there. But he hears from what I understand in formula CEO. And he's he's moved up from campuses. What was JP three-team austere, and they actually I would say points per pounds. They probably outperformed everybody in that category last year, and when you consider the budget rep against so that's that's going to be quite quite a good thing. Jack's very and cerebral driver, very very intelligent exactly the kind of person you can combine. Well with a good engineer. And I think we haven't seen the best of him yet in in formula to and moving onto Jordan King. Funny step back from IndyCar. But some he's going to MP may sport which hasn't had a very good track record in the category. Mainly because of the drivers haven't been up to it since since I Oliver Rowland or the budgets haven't been implies or just a combination of that. And but Jordan. Is very very friendly with the engineering stuff MP, which is offensive the Mana competition formula Renault team, he took his really his first proper steps in car racing with and he had had a very good song with them in twenty eleven twenty twelve and he always works very well with them. And and I think the same. Okay. Maybe he's not gonna charge for the ship. He probably even if he was running up at the front, you probably wouldn't do anyway. 'cause he's got miss a couple of rounds, for example, Moniquet because it crashes with the Indy five hundred and pets, but you wouldn't you wouldn't want to discount them from some from from decent performances this year. So very Mary situation that orders Roberta Murray of formal forty one driver so of compete with NPR sport last year, and and delivered a few really good results. Actually, there was a couple of results that were taken away from the much. They the the podium in Paul Ricard for for Roberto springs to mind is a very seems like a very similar situation. You drivers needs to be quite over qualified for that role. Coming back in giving the given the hunt. Hopefully, it can help them step forward because the digital goulash air in no doubt that they had probably higher number of technical issues than Kuala teams. Actually, they especially on Ralph car for most of the season. So the they they weren't date him with the optimal machinery in that sense. Share, but hopefully, someone of Jordan kings experience and someone like you said, he will gel in that team instantly know, all team ready. Well, sometime Rosemary probably didn't does as well. Jordan, elite straight back into the fold there, and it'll be like AB likes rewind and five or six years away. So yeah, I'd be interested LEGO what briefly Jack now we've run through the failed. We should just talk about that the car problems. We had a lot of those last year in particular so called slow off the line clutch was quite tricky supposedly improve now. So what are we expecting from? After you call this year by concerns of styles on their whiter functionality recite it set a lot in the at the end of the season. When Georgia slid won the title in the in the press conference afterwards, he decided to focus on the problems of that two car not look forward to f one career, you know, signed a deal with Williams will to championship. And the first thing he did was called out. The the fact that after you needed to improve that call equaled, the stop seizure, absolutely woeful, whereas words, and he said, absolutely. Must be fixed for finance season. So never tempted to improve those star problems. They did all the way through last year. We had the the instance who are there dictate how to roll in starts to your Acis. So they would make improvements all through the bringing software updates and Paul dates on on a number of occasions as well. I think all stem to the car was in shoes very quickly and didn't get tested full season started. You know, for whatever reason the call was was brought in quickly in the lead Thomas. Oh, sure, you know, very difficult situation to deal with in the sense. You know, the car was employing while the whole that they could they could do about it. They were kind of mired in a in a bit of a road, and it was very difficult for them to fix saying. Not they seem to have worked hard and off-season drivers after testing report in the the sort of updated star procedure is much improved. I can only talk hypothetically because formula to refused to outline the improvements that they've made to us. So we don't know exactly what the changes are. In an official capacity. But from what the drive's have said, there's a centimeter more travel on the clutch, which makes the clutch easier to move up. So you got bit more travel in the clutch went on the by point. So theoretically B's manage managed by point and bringing the power better. We've got mandated Gary shows for this year. So we've got shorter I gave which will give more power because the main problem nausea was a lack of talk turbocharged engine introduced and Serbia like seven kicking it until I open the Reverend non of power on down low. And also the clutch was when the when the drivers would pull the clutch on the steering wheel. If they for example, if they engaged eighty percent, the the clutch would engage ninety percent and then comeback to eighty. So we have the situation where the culture's going too far coming back in the drivers stolen. So it was a difficult situation. Many some of the teams were unaffected Louisville Johnston have stalls for fisheries LA season. But the majority did of problems, and it was definitely something that needed to be worked on. So it lowering when you're picking out a driver. He didn't have any stools as the exception. If you've said, all right, unfortunately for the job, unless you look appears in in most cases, the cream Nebraska, the top last year, we did gather the result and championship, and it didn't affect that too much even though Georgia so could have been even further had given the number of problems that he had especially in the first half the season. But it looks like they worked hard on that only time will tell and the thing is they they really can't afford to have a repeat of last year. They really can't afford it. Because you know, it was about an awfully share and your heart London Orrason Georgia, so pointing out the problems, but this year, we've got make sure marker and Guangzhou to markedly important people former one, you know, whether they're important to people watching on from from afar is almost the relevant. The the fact is that almost certainly the higher ups f on will identify these two drivers as future stars because of their relative background. So make obviously with the market name is no need for an explanation there. That's a massive name for on the Ferrari link is really big for our junior driver. So one really need to get two phone for the for the publicity value in for the you know, for the for the stardom that he should reach. And then you've got one usually represents a massive Chinese market, which F one has tapped into if the Chinese gone pre, but could do so much more in marketplace in with the driver like Guangzhou if he can force his way. Into a say, it's got a very perfect link. Actually, we've Reynaud who already push not Chinese market the minute and trying to pull themselves out there. So they're they're marks in him as well. They're interested in pushing his vision as well. So if we get to a point where we've got more car issues ET megastars in to constantly being affected by changes. It's going to cause massive problems with homeless save. So I think most likely they've worked very very hard over the winter, although they won't tell us, and I think the chances are the is going to be much improved. A lot more time to get the cards gather we've had a relatively smooth six days of preseason testing on the three days of the postseason test as well. It sounds problems are very much of the past.
