"You've got massive chasm. I think Red Bull are being phenomenal. And the RB 19 is a mega car with no last year we talked about the RB 18 has a weakness in it. It wasn't done at the minimum weight limit, and that was hurting. Verstappen, they had to develop the weight out, et cetera, et cetera. I think the problem now is everyone else has dropped the ball, Red Bull has got this mega concept they're developing. We've seen Mercedes stick with their concept. But even if you take away all the flaws of the Mercedes, they've still got this thing of and Baku with a revised format expose it particularly. They start off slow. And then by the final stint of the race weekend, the pace is mega. It's not as good as Red Bull. But they lose what three, four sessions, getting to that point. Like Lewis Hamilton, what was he 12th with 15 laps to go and then finish his 6 because suddenly the car comes on song, it gets off the hard tyres and he's belting. And Ferrari, it's the same thing where there's a flattery almost off Red Bull because they've dropped the ball with this car. They finally got a setup window. They think right after Australia and found some performance. And certainly over a lap, it's mega. We've seen that in Baku, but leclerc is in if I may say a 2020 state of realizing he needs to overdrive the car to sort of make amends for Ferrari's shortfalls bins in qualifying so they're starting from further back and they've brought in a new floor. Which is all about they say jock cliff said it's about making the car more benign. Well, you've had leclerc, lose it from over driving. That wasn't like an aero instability or going over the bumps. But then bio drivers have said after the race there is zero flexibility in this car. It can not do what we're asking it to. It can't work with certain tyres. They're leaving loads on the table. Aston had made this mega step forward, but for them to go from 7th at the end of last season to fighting with Red Bull teeth and now isn't going to happen. And you can apply that certain deficiencies all throughout the great LP amateurish according to their boss McLaren have a massive reality check according to their boss. And so Red Bull are doing a fantastic job, which strategy the way they're executing everything the drivers doing mega. But they're allowed to look if they're doing a 9 and a half out of ten job. There are made to look like a ten out of ten job because no one's there breathing down a neck just in the same way that leclerc last season cracked Paul Ricard or the strategy or whatever was made to look fallible because they were under pressure and Red Bull don't face that in a minute. So they're allowed to execute everything well. Like Charles said, there are points when there is a one second fluctuation in their pit stops, but no one was there to make them pay. Oh, Charles, thank goodness for Alonso and Aston Martin. Alonzo starting to get a bit itchy now because he keeps getting third places, which is kind of funny because rewind 5 races and they would buy your hand off for a third place, but thank goodness for Aston Martin for for giving us something in the midfield to talk about for an outstanding performance but unless Red Bull falter, they're not going to get a win this year, aren't they? Because if Red Bull are reliable and don't bin it, I can't find a track where Aston Martin are naturally going to be fast. I mean, somebody like Barcelona perhaps they could do a little bit better, but what do you think about Aston's chances? I think the only chance we've got for Aston and Fernando to win is probably a sort of turkey style Red Bull collision. From all those years back with Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber, it could have happened today, you know, obviously max had to pass Sergio really, it was Sergio was the only car that put up any resistance to him all day, and we saw him running a little bit hard and then try and come back at him into certainly into turn one. It looked a little bit fruity for a couple of seconds there. But you know, to use an American term, it was no harm, no foul, was it. Anyway, I want to live here for 7 years. You think I had no kind of it's been a long day. But yeah, Fernando, four podiums, 5 races, it's a remarkable street that he's putting together. It's what you expect from him really, isn't it, you know, when he came onto the scene in the mid 2000s with Renault and took the fight to Michael Schumacher, deposed the king at the time and we thought this was the guy who was going to win 7 world championships rather than obviously it was a Lewis he went on to do that and Sebastian Vettel fall with Red Bull two. And yeah, but he's always there and you give him a sniff of an opportunity and then you start really starting to kind of chip away at it and you know he says he wants to go higher. He wants to go faster, but at the moment he's also very realistic and he knows that they're real aim is keeping him Ferrari and Mercedes behind them at the moment, which you just at the start of the season you just never have really expected, would you the way this the pecking orders changed around quite so much? It's almost like the light that almost arsenal story taken the fight up to man city for a while and the Premier League in England. And that's really before all the investment from Lawrence Stroll is really going to come on stream with the big factory. So I think even brighter future ahead, but I think they are ahead of the curve. Yeah, I was up at Silverstone last Thursday. What is the day is Monday morning now, my time 3 o'clock in the morning, but last I was there last week. And that factory is really, really coming along. You come out of Silverstone you look across the roundabout and there's so much development work going on that you think, well, if that investment is repaid on track and then that is it can be a virtuous circle counter of development, hopefully. And also, you know, as entertaining as Fernando Alonso is when things aren't going well. And I mean that in the nicest possible way. But when he's in a bad car, it's entertaining and upset at Fernando Alonso. It's actually so much nicer to see him with a big smile on his face and the talent that he's got. It just being rewarded with yet more podiums. Let's talk a little bit about the battle Mandy going down the grid a little bit with Aston Martin and Ferrari and Mercedes. Are you happy to see Aston Martin, at least giving us something to talk about there because both Mercedes and Ferrari have both got their own woes in their own way that Aston's a bit of a feel good story. I am all about 5, 6 way battles. So with the new regulations for a lot, I don't know. I think for a lot of people in general, right? We wanted to see more people upfront. Acid Martin fighting was like probably one of the biggest reasons why I think people are watching. It's awesome to see, especially after such a horrendous last year. I mean, I remember talking to the mechanics that they were just like last year, like we're so far behind. We're like, worse than us. We have a terrible car. And I saw like the mechanic that told me that today, a year ago, a year ago, we were here in Miami and you said, we have a crap car. Now what do you have to say for yourself? They've done the work. And it's amazing. Like I said, when you see a team that is struggled so much doing so well up there, it's great. Yeah, I would like to see Ferrari up there. Who doesn't want to see Ferrari up there fighting? We all want to see that. Max is doing a phenomenal job. People will want to take that away the same people that are

"Get the experienced Nico hulkenberg that will keep it out of the wall rather than risk, you know, Mick Schumacher having another couple of 7 figure crashes because he doesn't have the experience and he then loses that practice session and then if the experiment turns out to be a hit and we go from 6 sprint races to ten to 12 whatever, then there is zero chance that the little rule that says you have to run rookies three times a season stays in a regulations and then you go to Vegas, which is a massive commercial driver and it is just Formula One. There's no support races or whatever. But when there are support races, they have to run to Abu Dhabi, which means by the time the F two champions crowned the F one silly seasons long over. So I know it's a slight tangential point, but it does sort of serve to undermine perhaps younger drivers less experienced ones when you can look at an older person in their advancing years and if they're still doing handy job at minimize the risk, then the shoe them in and never mind you, F two runner up, getting an epi one driving, doing a Nick devries and winning in or getting 7th place in monzo. I don't know. It's interesting you should mention Nico hulkenberg because the very first Grand Prix in Azerbaijan, if you recall, was anything but it's a thrashing crash fest. Everyone was very conservative. And that is because the drivers at the F one drivers were watching the carnage that ensued in what was then GP two, which had a number of safety car periods followed by ridiculous restarts followed immediately by safety car periods. And I was actually talking trying to speak to Nico hulkenberg in one of the many badly scheduled driver press conferences of the weekend that took place while there was a race on with a monitor in their eye line. So instead of talking to you, they were drifting off and watching what was on the screen and he watched one of those shunts on the restarts and I can't repeat what he said. Because it would cause us probably be blacklisted by Apple, but the word rhymed with duck's wake. And you can see why the F one drivers decided they were going to be conservative that weekend. So, you know, there might be an outbreak of conservatism for the sprint race. Or they might just have what the Italians would call. To the head. Well, I think so long as your good land stroll trying to keep pace with the Fernando Alonso. There's likely to be a massive shunt. Right. To be fair to mark's comment. I think. There's three there are three practice sessions qualified. But anyway, in qualifying last year, I think he was in two sessions and he crashed three times. That's quite a good, quite a good return rate for Azerbaijan. So ya boo and sucks says the Lance stroll. Do we have any members of the land stroll fan club in our listenership? If you would like to make yourself known, then please email Matt dot Q out from to support dot com. I think I met both of them at the Montreal Grand Prix. Stuck in the elevator momentarily. Do you have an Aston Martin cap behind you? Is that Vettel? Was that Alonso? Is that Lance stroll? Oh, yeah, you're looking at what Christian Horner during a Zoom interview rather snotty described as my partisan bookshelf. I'm sure he's really concerned about your support for Valtteri Bottas. So it's actually both. So Sebastian Vettel and Lance stroll have, I'm not sure who's actually what. I should probably keep this out of the sunlight because the sharpie mark is fading, but it won't perform as well on eBay then. As is well known, I'm banned from eBay. I tried to sell some of my own books. I canceled the sale and threw me off and told me I was a security risk. Did you have to poke them inside? Well, the local arcs fan is now saying, well, another one of these. What? I'll be keeping the Aston Martin baseball cap because it actually covers up a rather annoying blue stain on that shelf caused by a expired ink cartridge that I'd put in one of those macmillan charity envelopes. The residue leaking through the bottom. So there's a cyan splodge on that shelf. So your summary is that the benefit of having a signed acid Martin cap is that it comes up the stains on you. That's terrible. That's terrible. Oh, dear. I think it's as we come up to the hour mark in this podcast. It's time for us to leave it there with our listeners, visualizing peculiarly colored stains on market share. You really need to wrap this one up colors. Yeah. Well, thank you everyone for listening

"They then progress onto this? Or is it a step too far for them? Is there actually are they quite happy doing what they're already doing? So again, this is goes back to the point where making before they've combined it with sports 1000, so it's not going to be on a stand-alone grid to begin with, so you can judge how much interest there is. Cool. Okay, what's the next? Is the Audi TT cut race in series from the BRS EC. So this is open for Mark two two liter models of the Audi TT and it has proved a real hit already because in terms of the sort of conversion kits that SW motor sports, the company behind the series have produced over 40 of these have been sold already, and it's likely that they're sort of 2025 cars at the first round, which for a completely new tatter is really, really encouraging. And the potential for this to really grow into something quite huge. And it's because it seems to be hitting that sort of middle ground. It's a step up from some of the more basic entry level categories, but it's still really cheap, because it's still under 12,000 pounds, which require of that performance is a very reasonable price tag. And it seems to be sort of borne out by the amount of interest that's been so far. Yeah. Absolutely. And former Audi TT owner here, only the baby one, because there's two engine sizes. And I never drove it quickly anyway. Because I drive cars very quickly. But super fun car that makes me smile whether it's driving one or watching them race. So yeah, really interesting. And what's last up? Well, this is something very new, something we've not had in club motor sport before, and that whether you're a fan of it or not, it's an electric category of fully electric category. This one is from the RCC and it's formula foundation E, which is for a base around a single seater. So bespoke machine created by our RSR technology and it is powered by electricity. So it's something that's very different to anything we've had before. And therefore, it's not going to be the sort of work for a moment. This is not necessarily going to grow and be an enormous hit right from day one. And it's understandable that it's been launched on a sort of fairly cautious basis. They're not necessarily a whole load of track time this year when this still got to do a lot of work and building that interest and actually creating the cars themselves because they are brand new. A whole load of cars out there that you can convert for this. So it would be really interesting to see how it takes off the trouble is these cars at this moment in time are still enormously expensive compared to an equivalent single seater with a petrol powered engine. And that's going to be a stumbling block is particularly in these times of rising prices and people not having the sort of disposed wind can. And who knows if it's going to work or not at the moment it's far too early to say, but I have to say kudos to the bureaucracy for trying it because it's about time that someone put their head above the parapet and went for it and said, you know what? Let's give it a go. Let's see if we can introduce electric series into. Club most. I was going to say exactly the same thing even if this doesn't work out this time. We're going to get there. We're going to have to have. Whether people are like, yeah, then I think there will be younger generations coming through that don't have the stigma about electric cars because they're growing up with electric cars all over the place. Whereas we're still in that phase where a lot of those sort of fans remember being loud, V8s and all that sort of stuff. Which obviously there's still a lot of in club racing in this diet racing, but in 2030 years time we are going to be having electric club racing, hybrids, we have to get started somewhere. And obviously it's almost a decade into pulmonary existing hybrids have been at LeMond for a long time from Rwanda has been hybrid since 2014. So obviously it's going to take a while because it seems as it's expensive. It's complicated and if you are a club driver, it's you probably think, well that's a bit even if you're not got the stigma about electric and I go, well, I don't know how to run an electric car, don't understand how they work. So it's going to take time for this to be added in, but I can't see how we're not going to be able to carry on just burning fossil fuels in all these different categories. Even if we bring in synthetic fuels, which I think is ultimately what's going to happen, we're going to have a lot of synthetic field racing, Sebastian Vettel showed here in his 1992 Williams, basically, when I do it with this, why can't you do it with yours? And it's interesting that circuits are going to have to think differently about their infrastructure because plenty of power, three phase power is going to be coming into a race circuit and goodness knows they've got their own substations and depending on the size of the circuit, et cetera. But they are not set up for charging one electric car, let alone a grid's worth. It depends how quickly you want to charge the cars. Of course, and how long those races are going to be, whether they're going to be 15 minutes or 45 minutes. So lots of work to do there. That's the thing, isn't it? And that's why we've perhaps seen more initial sort of electric cars appearing in other disciplines of motor sport, whether it's hill climbs, which are really short,

"There is an argument that there's not a lot that you always nothing they can do about Aston Martin developing their way into a good position. But yeah, where do you see Alpine and McLaren making that? But having just said that, who could have predicted what Aston were going to do. So it is possible. And I think it's really interesting talking to some of the members of the team, particularly some of you guys down at Williams. They're actually inspired by seeing what Aston have done because it's like right. This is possible. It's a good story for Formula One and it's a good story for a lot of the teams. It's just ultimately, you know, it's the prize money thing, right? They're going to end up not doing as well because they haven't done good enough job. I'm going to get into that. Next, take a quick break and I'm going to dig into that a little bit more about what we should be expecting to see teams doing this year. Stick around back in a second. All right, let's talk about that. At the point, Alex just made teams being inspired by Aston Martin, revealed a car a year ago that was second slowest and by the middle of the season had a new development path and were on their way. And yet multiple times when I've asked people about Mercedes since the beginning of this year, I'm often told how Mercedes is going to dig themselves out of the Maya and people often say, well, in a cost cap era, that's really difficult. So those two things can't be true, Aston Martin did it in a cost cap era and didn't break the cost cap. So Mercedes should be able to do it. They've got a team of people that know how to win. Well, championships am I being a bit too simplistic? Only because astin made its major gain over a winter, like it did make significant gains in 2022, like I said, Phil, we're about to go after Melbourne, and I remember watching FP three with Andrew van leeuwen and Sebastian Vettel which has binned it because there was no down force and it was porpoising horrifically. And the car was just slow. They had made significant gains. They were up there a threat to the podium positions on merit in Austin and things like that. They would as well inconsistent. But then they had the new car coming behind. And that's really where they've made their game. So I take the point, I do take the point, but that is not quite the same comparison. Okay. Okay. So while the teams can do it, they can do an Aston over the next year or 18 months. It just refreshing to see this narrative of the cost cap has baked in this advantage for the big teams and the small teams will never be able to make a big step. I think that's been dispelled and I think that's really encouraging for Formula One. Let's look at I'm not giving a full rundown. Apologies listeners. A terrible podcast host. I should do that at the beginning of the podcast every week. You know Sergio Pérez won from Max Verstappen and Fernando Alonso, who is back on the podium. George Russell Lewis Hamilton, science and leclerc in 6th and 7th, then ocon and gastly all going two by two and Kevin Magnussen in the house. Yuki tsunoda was just outside the point. He was inside the points, but he was 11th Nico hulkenberg 12th. Zhou guang yu in 13th Nick de vries in the AlphaTauri 14th Oscar piastre got past Logan sergeant finish 15th legan sergeant 16th, which I still think a good drive though, by the way, we get into that. And Lando Norris 17th Valtteri Bottas, classified 18th. Let me talk a little bit about McLaren, the Williams and that back end of the grade with AlphaTauri teams that are not where they should be or teams that are probably quite happy with how they're doing. McLaren couldn't pass. Well, okay, so Lando Norris in a McLaren couldn't pass a Williams, even with DRS. That actually panic stations at McLaren. Well, whether it's team orders and piastre got past him, he did get past Logan sergeant. Eventually. But Kev, this is, this is a difficult Monday morning to wake up to at McLaren, isn't it? Yeah, but they were kind of expecting weren't they? We talked about this after Bahrain that they were quite pleased because they thought it was going to be even worse than it was. And they got a load of updates coming. So I think they'll be encouraged by piastres performance in qualifying. I think we now can see that he is for whatever reason to step up from Ricardo in the second car. Obviously Landau had a little mistake in qualifying, which had big consequences, so he was kind of out of it from there. I was not like carrying a problem. Why did they switch the cars around? If Lando's the number one. Can I just jump in very, very quickly? It wasn't a little mistake, Kev. You didn't beat in the car. But it was a poor mistake. It was important. A little fire, a little size mistake, but it was bad from land. I think, and I know he reads my driver ratings. He should be very lucky that he's not being rated on qualifying this season now. Okay, so I think panic stations at McLaren more so than I ever ever have done based on today's you run. I mean, by which I mean the reason why not the 80s. Early 90s. I don't think there was many panic stations during that era. But yeah, I'm still not yet. Let's get to some more normal tracks. I don't think it's going to be quite as terrible as it looks at the moment. Don't forget they both had incidents on the first lap. They weren't down the back on Lando's end yet because you hit the wall and then you had to come in and get his nose changed and pastry was just, was he unlucky? I think it was just one of those unfortunate things that at that corner is possible to get a little bit squeezed and he just did with the Alpine. So yeah, unfortunate more at the start there for McLaren than any sort of shock reason for them being back there.

"It will be exciting, but it will also be disruptive. And I would have thought that we should really start to see all the benefits of their new facility, not so much in 24, but 25, and then into the new era, new regulations, 26. So it's a really important investment. And incidentally, you know, obviously Aston Martin having had a very good pre season test. More good news on today while we are recording the podcast, which is a vast and not in the gonda. Lawrence Stroll's car company that he's invested so much money in and spent a lot of time and effort trying to get pointed the right direction. They have announced today profitability for the first time since the company was floated on the stock exchange four and a half years ago. And the share price is soared by about 14% just today. So it goes to show that things are pointing in the right direction generally, both for the not just the F one team, but for the car company. And fair play to Lauren stroll for sticking at it and putting the money in to make all of that possible. Shame land stroll can't point a bicycle in the right direction, isn't it? Do we know for a fact that he came off as well as his bicycle he came off, did he break both wrists? Well, there's a lot of things that are being said. They say it was a bicycle accident, obviously there are those people who say, is this like quite a man Pablo Monty. Han man Pablo Juan Pablo Montoya's so called tennis accident. The tennis accident stood in the tennis ball. And then there are people quite close to the team who say that there are he does have or at least last week did have steel pins in there, which suggests he won't be racing, but yeah, the bizarre cage eNOS of the team in the run up to the first Grand Prix and the test whilst very bizarre and you kind of feel that perhaps that was driven by Lauren sim himself who has faith in the power of his money and Swiss clinics to make anything happen and so he didn't want to rule out the possibility of Lance driving. And indeed, you know, as we speak, there's still been no news. It's looking like it was going to be Felipe drugovich. There was a very silly story doing the rounds based on speculation that Sebastian Vettel would pop out of retirement. It's actually in Vettel who is on holiday with his family and entertaining his kids by the beach right now, so not available for the Bahrain Grand Prix. It'll be great if drug a bitch gets that run because I do think too many times GP two champions in formula two champions have sat by the sidelines and kind of stalls their career and wouldn't it be nice to see a formula two champion not only get the break, get the break in the first race with the team that seems to have got a pretty handy car. So it'd be a nice turn up for the books. It'll rather it'll be very interesting because Lance Lance is clearly a competent racing driver, but the team will see what drugovich can do in that car. And it'll be very interesting then to look at the data that they get from that. And if lands ends up out for a second race of drug events, we should do the first two races. He will get to know the car very well and it'll be very interesting to see how he matches against Fernando Alonso. I've always had the belief that sooner or later Lawrence and Lance will have the conversation that he's had his opportunity and the team will move on and I think it's still too early for that to happen, but that will happen one day and should happen one day. And it'll be an interesting dynamic to see what happens with Lance being replaced in this first race or two. If I could have it at a flip on extra to that of the more number of races that Lance stories out on the sidelines, the longer it delays the inevitable fallout between Alonso and bowed strolls, I suppose. So it would be interesting because Mark saying sort of about what Djokovic can do and how close he gets to Alonso, but I suppose that that curve is sort of exponential, isn't it? Because the longer Djokovic is in the car, the more familiar he becomes, a more refined, and more ingratiated to the team. The bigger the catch up that Lance has to do having come back potentially from a physically quite severe injury. There's rumor that he's being treated by the same specialist that basically reattached Marc Marquez's arm. So the longer he's rusting us, the physical demands, the lack of time he'll have in a simulator and then it becomes one, two, three races, obviously Lance trolls had several seasons, F one, but maybe it's one, two, three races for him to get back to speed where Djokovic was and then before you know it, that could be first third of the season gone. We don't know, but an interesting and interesting sub thread. Well, I suppose that's what Reddit is. A subplot is what more traditional, isn't it? Yes, and this is the Reddit. This is a corner of the Internet, so I don't delve into being a bit late. I was interested and slightly confused not to say bemused by the run plans they had for drugovich during testing because he sort of seemed to be doing the majority of his running during daytime. He took the a.m., but like the pre lunch slot on the days he drove. Which basically is track conditions completely irrelevant to the way the Grand Prix would pan out on the Grand Prix weekend. So you couldn't really draw anything, particularly from the times he set, and certainly even if they had bolted on a set of sticky tyres, he wouldn't have been able to set a particularly representative lap time. Oh, well, representative of the condition as they were before lunch. But not in ideal time. So you kind of think what were they playing at? Completely. I wonder, again, the cynical part of me wonders how much of that might have been a Fernando Alonso land grabbed that I want the most competitive Sessions the most representative so I'm in a best dad and obviously that's to some extent that's in the team's interest because if for this first race while everyone's getting up to speed, there is a 5th place fragrance site going up for grabs, maybe it's better to get one car in 5th and the other one in 12 than it is to get to one night and once tenth with a sort of smaller spread. So I wonder if that's attached but I'd also say maybe we're reading too much into it because I thought considering they are rookies you need to get off up to F one's speed. I thought piastre drugovich and Nick de vries had really bizarre run plans like piastre was just given not even racing relations, just tool around evaluate certain things and P two seconds off the pace. If it wasn't for Alpine just doing nothing representative because their run plan I spoke to a few people at the team was literally we've got this new suspension. So we're going to go through every single click to see how it reacts and not chose times. We just want to isolate what does what? So apart from those guys going really slow, none of the rookies were sort of really, really up there. And you looked they were just some of them were just sent out on the prototypes or the hard tyres and we'll see you in a couple of hours sort of thing really sort of lame and up and representative. I know a few of them have said that they're qualifying their forte. So maybe they're hoping they can just sort of for FP three and Colleen and Bahrain they can just turn up and nail it. But maybe they haven't had the privilege of a low fuel dusk run yet to see what they can really do, but perhaps that's why they're out of Kyoto and Djokovic victim victim to that perhaps a little bit. Just picking up on what you're saying there I also thought it was very interesting that max was Max Verstappen was quite happy to let Sergio Pérez do the final part of the test and its entirety. It was almost a kind of an indication of the degree of confidence. I don't even need to do that. I think we know where we are. Actually, we could do with helping Sergio to get up to speed and get himself a little bit more geared into that car. So yeah, you can read there's a lot to be read into who does what and during those testings. But testing, but I thought it was quite telling Red Bull's confidence and Marx's personal confidence in the car is pretty sky high. Max seems to have

"Of didn't engage in that. It wasn't quite like a Q three shootout, but that under the lights and the cooler, best conditions, several teams going for finally doing a bit of performance running. Aston didn't do that. So what does that tell me? To be there very, very confident about the package. They've got one is to do their own thing. And as you say, Fernando Alonso, very happy, enjoying what I'm told is a sort of a honeymoon period with his team. But hey, if it carries on being this good, being successful, maybe it'll be a marriage that finally for Alonso lasts very nicely Formula One. Someone in the comments from that video we made over the weekend said that I wasn't big enough Aston enough and I promised them that when Alonso gets his first podium this year, we'll do a video podcast and I'll be wearing my green Aston top just to keep that one person happy. But let me tell you about the reaction to Alonso and Sebastian Vettel being a partnership this weekend. It just broke the Internet. But is that just because we put up a post on our social media, we put the two together to say, well, look, if stroll can't race this weekend, you took in drug events, your van dono, hey, what about two multiple world champions? Alex, is that just pie in the sky? Did the paddock just laugh that off is there no chance vet would come back this weekend? I certainly for Bahrain are ask them I've already come out and said that if Lance stroll can't race, that it will be Felipe gigabits. I think that if I'm not quite sure it's obviously some they're very the same right now being very cagey some sort of PR game but if you believe the rumors about how severe answered injuries are there's no way it'll be racing in Bahrain this weekend so I wouldn't be surprised at all if Felipe Djokovic does end up making its debut. That will be good for him for four minute two champion. You'd like to see people making the step up. But the sort of thinking more long term is that maybe they could get Sebastian Vettel in for Saudi Arabia now might crack answered that question considered it. He didn't dismiss it out of hand is that they have been talking, maybe there are a few whatsapps and text exchange. You never know. But in terms of ultimately boils down to there's one on the one argument, it's like, oh, it makes a mockery of having a reserve driver and things like that. But this is a business. Ultimately, it's based on results, you got to think about getting the best results possible. If I had to make a choice between a short term short term thinking because Lance stroll is going to be back eventually. Do I want Philippe drill pitch or do I want Sebastian Vettel? Well, it's not a choice. Of course, I'm going to go for Sebastian Vettel. So I wouldn't shock me if it did that. But you never know. If this car is doing as well as we hope and I think it might and I say hope because let's face it we need something to keep it interesting if Microsoft is going to water his way to 2023. So 23 F one wins in 2023, then it may be a bit to be able to do a good enough job and he could keep that drive for as long as long as Lance stroll needs him to. Absolutely. Get well soon, Lance. When we say the rumors in the paddock, they're not just people saying, oh, you know, he's really ill, but actually hearing specific things like the people working on him are the people that put marques from MotoGP back together. And they're quite specific things that you get told in the paddock and you think, okay, so it's not official from the team, but that's quite serious. So get well soon, Lance, if he is properly properly poorly very quickly finally Matt, I'll come to you because a story came out with the drivers getting together to give a bit of a pasting to this news about the proposed tyre blanket, ban. It's all in the effort. I think I've understand of saving money, but why are the drivers upset about this? They're saying it on the grounds of safety, really. Because you come out on cold tires, low traction, and it means you're filtering out the pit lane really slowly. You know, the potential for occlusion is massive and they're going, or some of them is quite a big split Verstappen in favor, signs and Lewis Hamilton against, but they're saying, if an accident happens, it's on your hand. I did notice that on Twitter James Hinchcliffe Indy car driver said, you know, I don't get it, I think it's a great spectacle. And they're sort of the debate around does scrapping tyre warmers and not having to heat the tires, not having to bring the infrastructure does that save the planet. Does it help which F one sustainability or does the sort of square around and whatever to put heat back in the tires? I've set that. The thing I'd add is I don't think it will, you know, the intention is to spice up the racing. It depends what you want. It depends if a DRS overtake is particularly satisfying to you, because DTM tried this a few years ago, they scrapped the tire warmers. And yes, by statistically, there were more overtakes but they were really unsatisfying because one car comes out the pits with cold tires. And it's a foregone conclusion. They can't put up a fight. They just resist and wait for the next pit stop when their tires are up to speed in a person it's just overtaken. It was called off. So yeah, there might be more trading of position, but you know, you want it to be satisfying protracted thing rather than just sort of easy like someone to turn the settings down a little bit. So that's my reservation, but F one's coming in from cost and sustainability angle. Well, that was going to rumble on. Guys, thank you. Have a great weekend this weekend. I'm sure we'll catch up with you. So, Alex, enjoy The Rain in Bahrain. That must be fun. But it's still incredibly windy. No one's even sitting around the swimming pool. That was going to be too much work to do to be doing such things, but yeah. Okay, sure. I might be the speeders will be on later.

"His odd, maybe they are simply overheating or wearing out too fast through the first half of the lap. Yeah, so the drivers who are out are at 11th is just about off on 12 Sebastian Vettel that he's got good penalties, of course, Antonio giovannucci doesn't have a grid penalty, but he's just in 13th. Fernando Alonso in 14th and judgmental in 15th, but he had his time deleted. So the back of the grid will look Russell 20th Alonso 19th and Vettel 18th. So, you know, it could be worthwhile for sure. But he's got the two hearts in front of him he'll probably make short work of him next in no time. So good practice for lapping them next year. Exactly. So I don't know. Let's start with you. So given the roundup, again, Verstappen, three tenths faster than the Mercedes. This time on the medium tyres, not even on the soft tires, like it was in Q one. It just look advantage Red Bull, but as we keep saying, you know, what I'm going to say destruction are they playing the long game here? Yeah, they might even be sacrificing the pole position because it's on the outside of the racetrack. And you can actually sort of dive bomb down the inside into turn one quite nicely. But it was a bit of a wham bam, thank you, man lap from Verstappen, 3.333 faster than Lewis, who didn't go out again, I don't know if Lando improved when he went out. I think he I think he came straight back in. I think he did one of those. But yeah, I mean, Mercedes have got Bottas currently quicker than Perez, which could be important for strategy. But at the front, it does look like it's advantage for Stepan at the moment. But Hamilton has got over a hundred pole positions.

"In FP three. I remember seeing them on them. No, so they're going to want to fresh set for tomorrow. They might go medium medium hard. Well, as it turns out, you have absolutely nothing to worry about, because such a press goes. Sorry. For all the accurate branding that they've put on that Red Bull it also still says Honda on the back of it. Yeah, there's probably like some contractual. Yeah, the power unit deal. Yeah. But Honda and Acura are basically the same company as far as possible. Yeah, yeah, it's just home accuracy, American armor, effectively, I believe. Yeah, that's why accurate or the car this weekend. Yeah. It's like opal and Vauxhall. And then Holden in Australia. You've got GM and Ford as well. Yeah. So we haven't seen for stop and return to the track as our mentioned, neither Mercedes have come out onto the track Charlotte Clare, also in fourth, has also decided to remain in the pit lane. We're currently seeing Daniel Ricciardo in his lap. Not put one on the board. He's on the medium. He's got a minute left. Lando Norris who is not a small margin, either. That's .3 of a second. That's pretty much. I'd say Ricardo because you'll need to do a cooldown lap. This is the for me. I don't think he's going to make it through. Unless maybe he was just you know, it could be to be honest that watching it through the first sector, because the final sector is where you need to start faster than sonoda, who is sat in tenth in the middle sector. And they can only put his card 9th he saw them in Q one. That is that's a shock. Over Nazi who was in the danger zone, he can't go faster, Fernando Alonso here, what is he going to put his? I've just seen him put his green second executive, but it's 8 seconds off. Yeah, because he was 30 and a half seconds off. So he's he's not pushing. I think he's just gone up for a bit of a stroll here. Ofcom managed to push himself into the top ten, but Yuki sonoda has taken that place back, but we still got to see Vettel and Russell, who both have penalties on be surprised if they even they'll just be trying to get ahead of Fernando Alonso here. Which won't be difficult oxygen, his time was basically a cruise lap. Squeaky bum time for Danny Rick. And Louis, whoever's ahead of me, please don't spoil that. I'm not spoiling it. I'm still worried about that. So. Russell's probably not going to time is.

"But yeah, some, well, Q one's always Q one, isn't it? You have pretty much all both has to go in now. Nothing against the drivers even has a pin, but that car is just atrocious. I mean I'm not an F one driver. I don't think I'd want to know. I know I wouldn't fit in an F one car. But, you know, so I don't obviously know the exact ins and outs of it. But when you see a gun on the surface, you can see how terrible it is. Raikkonen, unfortunate, I think he ended up getting the last time deleted. But that alpha not much better. Latifi just yeah. And then it was a bit of a poor run by stroll. Shoulders didn't look happy with the car, at all. Because I got on board, I saw of him when he literally started fighting the understeer. It was pretty atrocious. I was really load into Q two. Yeah, so the green light has just gone on a Q two. Both Mercedes out straight away as you'd expect on the medium tire. I think you'd say the three drivers who have well going to the back of the grid. They all got into Q two. So fair play to them. Despite the fact that they will be starting 20th, 19th and 18th. Respectively, so I wouldn't expect to see much running from either Vettel Alonso or Russell in this session. But yet medium tires opted, we've already discussed this before, but it just looked like they are going to be the good race tire along with possibly the hard tomorrow. Such a pair is out in the softs at the moment. Oh, is he? Everybody else. Science is on soft little azz on mediums. Gaslit is on mediums. Icons on mediums, apparently..

"Horrible, understeer there. Coming for the round, I thought that counts as two and 18. You could actually see him fighting the wheel there. Yeah, he's put so much lock on. Is that a deletion there? No, because I thought it was I didn't know if it was white line or is the white light. Or I must be turned 9. No, sorry, it's turned 6 where you have to keep something on the part of the car on the curbs. Lines. They've got a police it, but here because I remember in the IndyCar a couple of years ago, you saw them go in. Yeah, just fully off the track. As well have been in Mexico. It may as well have been Fernando Alonso in Russia. So before they go back out on their next runs, I wanted to point out a trend that's carried on at the moment in Q one from FP three, which is science. In another district to the Clare. Nearly a second off the pace and sciences up in 5th, just over a two tenths off of the fastest time at the moment, which for another guy who's generally not considered an outstanding qualifier, that some effort. There as well. Yeah. Who is a good qualified? Very good qualify. So with four minutes left to go just under now the drivers are coming out for their final runs. I'll give you a quick run through of where the drivers are at currently in Q one. We've got Verstappen and Perez. Followed by the two McLaren Ricardo and Norwich stadium color science in 5th bot us is ahead of Hamilton. He's in 6th hunt and 7th. Gazley in 8th Leclair in, you know, in tenth, not to not too shabby. Vettel an 11th juvenile in 12th stroll is 13th Russell 14th, Espana is the last of well who would survive and then in the danger zone at the moment is Fernando Alonso in 16th Latifi in 17th Mick Schumacher in 18th and then Raikkonen and mazepin. I believe don't have lap times as they were deleted for various track limits just awful. Quick shout out to the fire octopus on the inside of the boat. Just seeing that. I just see that that is where it is looking big weight away. What's that about keep Austin weird? Okay. That is like something, if any of you ever played the game watch dogs. No. Well, yes and no. Yeah, that reference will be the last one you know. It reminds us something from Doctor Who. What about the macro or I'm not a big Doctor Who fan? It just looks like something would fit there. Yeah. It looks like something I would expect to see from robot walls back in the day, brilliant. Robot water, Craig Charles, Jonathan Pearce, on the commentary. Are you all going to remember that? Yeah. I've been to see robot wars. Okay, I'm 21, but I do know what road was..

"That's what I would deem that to be. I think you're probably right there. He's not going to want to hear that. Yeah. Again, I'm just speculating. One thing's for sure. He is best. He is angry. That's for sure. Yeah. Another guy is going to be pretty raging after this race is Sebastian Vettel giardi ended up finishing down in 12th after getting hit about three or four times or something like that. People just seem to be attracted to his car and they ended up suffering because of it. Out of the points, it's a pretty forgettable weekend for him, really. Yeah, it's forgettable, that's the only word I've got for it really. And it's, you know, as much as we want to see Seb do well and everything. Yeah, getting beat up by our con the and then just nothing nothing really for him like he didn't have a great time in the sprint race. Either I think he finished 11th or whatever qualified. So effectively went backwards during the Grand Prix. So, you know, that's the thing like I just want to pick to Lawrence Stroll at the end of the year and what does he think about how the whole year's gone? They had a podium, you know, they had a podium taken away, but overall it's been a hot mess for Aston Martin this year, you know, like big brand, a lot of new sponsors coming on board big investment. You would have expected a bit more show bodie kind of results, but yeah, it's just look forward to 2022. And I don't know if you guys have heard speculation and stuff coming in about that all possibly not racing next year. It all sounds rubbish to me, but yeah, this is like, why bring it up? I don't see it. I've not heard any of that personally, but I don't think that's going to help. And I can he's going to honor his contract to me. If he was ever going to give up, we would have given up the Ferrari last year, you know. He's a guy who owners his deals at the end of the day..

"Figured out for whatever is going to be the outcome of the Sebastian Vettel. He'll the next race is August 29th. In Belgium, I, I'm kind of grateful, I'm in the middle of moving. I need a little bit of a break. I just, I really I, in fact, I know for a fact there are really good videos out there covering, I haven't watched them. But I see the titles on YouTube, you don't click on my busy, but even if you like, even if you Google Sebastian, Vettel a bunch of videos come up. So I would encourage anybody who's curious, go look up, whatever videos you can find dead. About Sebastian, vettel's appeal and the fuel problem. It's it's very weird and it felt very trivial and I felt like the FIA kind of targeted him for God knows what reason. There's a political reason I'm not going to go into it. It's I don't know, but it just was very very bizarre and very, very weird. I want to see if there's anything else worth mentioning. I think that's pretty much it, man. I I've been slammed moving. This a hard race to discover because of so much uncertainty. I thought maybe if I waited a day or two then the Sebastian Vettel. I've been busy too, but I thought maybe the fashion Vettel appealing, get wrapped up, it doesn't appear, that's going to happen anytime soon. And it is worth mentioning Mercedes cost them first place because they did not switch their time. You know, there was a moment where Lewis Hamilton during formation left, could not get radio orders and he did not go into the pit Lane and stuff everyone else went into pit Lane. He didn't want to risk losing his first place spot. So he didn't and had to do the research job. On what with wets instead of flicks for the race. And so I don't know man. I'm really I just this race, I felt for Red Bull here. They got screwed over off valve, turbo, tosses the teammate of the year but also I really firmly believe more now than ever that George Russell's going to eventually replace battery botas as a nice one driver for Mercedes. It just every little news story. I see, it's like so obvious. I don't know why they won't announce it, but if Mercedes was planning on keeping battery botas, they would have already announced that binome fact that they haven't is incredibly telling. So interesting to me, I want to shift gears now to a couple of other things in the Sports, World stories and stuff going on. Let me just say the Olympics are going on. I couldn't care less about the Olympics. I don't I haven't really watched them at all. I don't care. It's weird. There's no fans. I it's like I don't care about pole vault. And what's the one shot shot? Put isn't compelling to me at all, some of the racing like running running races or interesting stuff like that. Here is the one thing that blows me away about the Olympics, though. I bought it. My token topic about the Olympics for whatever it's worth. Exactly. It only happens, every four or five years you know, five years cuz of covid-19 year imagine you know.

"Races I've ever seen in form of the one weird, because for, for many reasons. First of all map, one that reboot. Mercedes driver crashed, you took out both Red Bulls. The session got stopped Max. First happens car for red bull attack. Damaged here. 1 2 3 4 5 6 drivers did not finish the race. Lando Norris Sergio Perez. Lance stroll, Charles Le Claire about your Botox himself and of course Ben. What's it Nikita mazepin? That's his actual name. Hate that guy. Just what a weird race. So how do we? What are you begin here? First of all, there's light rain early on in the race, they read they, they red flagged the session they stopped after a while. Everyone had to restart. They tried to, like, literally rebuild Max first happens car, he had no downforce could barely pass mix. Schumaker, literally took him like 30, freaking laps to pass mix Schumaker and that's kind of one of the weirdest parts of this race is that, you know, Lewis Hamilton was in first going into the race restart app. So they did a formation lap and Lewis. Hamilton goes to the start cuz he's in first month. And every other driver went into pit Lane to change their tires, because they realize detractors way drier than we thought. So that put Lewis Hamilton a massive disadvantage. Had to go all the way around the track before he could pit. He put a new tire set. Put Louise Fulton in last place in the races at 14th position. Max's happened was in 12th now Max. Sorry, Lewis Hamilton. It was really my favorite part of this race. Was it, Lewis Hamilton? Just drove through the whole pack, slowly passing people overtake after overtake after overtake month ended up getting well third-place. Then second here is another reason why this race was incredibly weird and I'm not going to make this into a full break out just going to make it part of the podcast. You know, Sebastian Vettel second place in this race and got disqualified. I'm going to read you. The reason it's, it's the weirdest reason I've ever heard for a disqualification. Basically the real-life birds are unable to take the required amount of fuel for sampling following the race. So they needed one liter then they got zero point three litres from his car and it sounds unbelievable. They actually founded his car because Aston Martin is challenging and appealing what happened there saying, hey, there's still like should be over a litre of fuel in the car through the all of the pipes and off. The the system. So it should be possible to get that much feel out there. They're furious. And I I thought maybe be resolved by now, but remember, form of the one is on Hiatus. They have a break. The next race isn't until August 29th because they're on summer break. So, I don't know when it's going to get resolved. I thought that Sebastian Vettel should have legitimately gotten second in the race. I seems like a weird BS nonsensical reason to take away from him and just just very weird. Now, I want to talk about estimate akhon, because estimate okan be got sick, I got first place in the race partially cuz everybody crashed partially. Because when that happened he took over and Luis had to go to the back of the pack and you held on and there are two heroes in all of this. Number one is Esperanto cons parents..

"End up letting botas and Lando through just to you know, he's got to finish the race and didn't want to hold up. A voucher e, Sergio Pettis was back in 64, Red Bull member. Sergio Perez ran wide into the gravel early on the race, trying to pass land in North anyone's lap four or five because there was that restart after the fashion and so later than not only Sergio Perez wipe out and have to kind of lose a lot of ground in the in the field. He also got to 5 Second penalty. So, 10 seconds total of time penalties. Well, defending against Charles LeClaire. Also forcing Charles, LeClaire off wide of the track. So I'm Sergio, Perez, kind of recovered made it to 6. I think should have got V, but had to time, penalties. Lando Norris also got a Time penalty 5 Seconds that happen when Sergio Perez ran wide trying to pass them early on in the race. I did not think I was deserving. I did not believe Lando deserved a penalty there. I thought he should have been more patient. I mean, Sergio Perez. So I guess let me say this if anybody should have been at fault there it was Sergio Perez who I think made a dumb move. You know, not being patient trying to make a move to a quickly and you know should have waited for better opportunity to pass land. Oh, I'm like early in the race. You're like Sergio, why are you making this move right now? Are you trying to catch Max? Like, this is weird and it felt like the wrong time for Sergio to make a move. Try to go around the outside. He ran wide into the gravel. I don't blame landle 4 that I believe in surgery or being impatient. So it was ridiculous. Atlanta got blamed if you ask me, but I still go to say the super cool to see Lando get a Podium. I thought he could have got second if it weren't for that time penalty and whatever else. Who knows? I mean it just interesting right? Like what would have happened if we hadn't had that nonsense to deal with. Now, the battle between McLaren and Ferrari continues. McLaren got 21 points. His language got 15 points and third. Daniel ricciardo got six points in seventh and then Ferrari got seven points on the day. So McLaren got twenty one, seven points behind them, was Ferrari on Sunday, Sans got 5th, place for ten points and Charles LeClaire got four points for eight place. So, fourteen points of the day for a Ferrari 21 points on the day for McLaren. Now, Alpena had a really rough weekend. The French team. Esteban ocon was the only driver on Sunday to retire early, and did not finish the race. Meanwhile, the other Alpine driver Fernando, Alonso time to get screwed over in Q2 of qualifying, he was almost qualified into the top. Ten was going to go to Q3 off. And then at the end of his lap, he ran into a bunch of traffic and Esteban sorry, Sebastian Vettel, Sebastian Vettel in particular gotten his way. So Sebastian Vettel got a bulb.

Yes, I I understand. I get the point, which is that they're trying to show that you know, there's a parallel here between what? You know the type of dialogue that was going on about Trump, you know, punch him in the face. Take him behind the gym. Do all of that, But but this was something that was so dramatic, and I really do believe Trump could have stopped this if he wanted to, And I think that's a big point is that if he had said at some point if he had some point had said, stop this. Don't do this, whatever. But there are a lot of reports, John that, you know. He sat by and watched and he didn't do anything and people were begging him to intervene. He didn't do it, and that does show a tremendous lack of remorse and a lack of judgment. Yeah, well, Uh, I I don't think I would. I would not vote to impeach. But I would find something else to do. You know, because it's only gonna make a martyr out of him on. Don't say this. I'm I read one only run one piece. I haven't seen any bells to anything in it. What was happening when the riots were going on? Where was the president? And he must have been made aware of all of it right? So something needed to happen where he did. This is terrible. Just pure conjecture. But, hey, let's talk radio were not held responsible for anything. We say nothing. First of all, Just put it this. The five people that died. One of them was a police officer. We're not sure how he died. One The other four was a woman that was unarmed. Going through the window. She was shot and killed by a police officer. We still don't know his name. The other three. We don't know where they were. We No one was a heart attack. One was a stroke and one also the woman. The person might have been crushed. We're not sure by the crowd, but were they inside the Capitol? That time? We're not sure it seems like none of them were So that aside um I would say that why most disappointed by the president on it States that during the time for like, one o'clock in the morning or one o'clock in the afternoon when they first breached and went in there. Where was he? At that point? Was he watching it? He must have been watching it all on television because they have a recovering it like you know, from All the way stem to Stern. I don't know what he could have done other than not tweet out like, how could he have stopped it right as he's As the running in there, running around and taking Selfies. Nancy, where are you all and they're down there on the floor. I don't know what What if it was a movie? It always asked time. What would you do in the Harrison for playing the president? What does he have to do? Fly over in a helicopter with a bullhorn? And but someone's holding onto his hit the back of his pants. He doesn't fall out the window and he's telling you that this is your president. God, EJ to break it up, everybody. He didn't do anything for that time. And even if he had just tweeted stop this. Stop this and they didn't stop. It would at least look like he was concerned with the capital, the people in the capital the lives that could be lost and step up as a leader. I don't believe that. You can say that the words that he was using prior to and then the speech that he was giving because he's using the word fight. They used the word fight all the time. But I deeply disappointed by the actions of the president of states during that time from one o'clock to whatever, three o'clock in the afternoon where he was not Kind of there at the breach, saying something to people or at least you know, going on television and saying I denounced this in. This is terrible. Was he sitting back? And quietly watching and God, I would hope not that he would be enjoying it. God, I hope not. I haven't heard anything. And I would hate to think that that would be the case. But wow, that would that would be one vindictive person and again. Don't know. Don't know where he was. I don't know what they were doing behind the scenes of it loved it. Find out Right. And I agree with you. There was very little. I mean, they are going to. They're going to look at their phones and say, Hey, everybody stopped the president just, you know, tweeted something. I mean, I agree with you. That probably would not have happened, but just in terms of optics for him to wait as long as he did and do so little really just shows such a disregard for human life and for what was going on and And then everything so and it's interesting. I watched a lot of it yesterday and and most of the commentators that I watch said that if this vote was taken in secret He would be impeached that most people are afraid the Republicans are afraid of the political blow back, so they're not going to vote. But if it was in secret, they probably all wood or a lot of them. What? Yes, I agree. The Democrats are doing this primarily to split the trump supporters from the GOP. Sort of just normal guys. Members of the club that have been there for a long time. There are 34 senators. I believe up for 11 reelection in 2022. I think 20 of them might be 20, I think are Republicans and in that regard there are trying to pick a few of those guys off a few of those women office. Well, so if you could somehow hang that vote on top of them when it comes out for time for a commercial, uh and ad against them, they might be able to do that. So generally this it does not broken used yet. But Democrats also plan on impeaching Thomas Jefferson for owning slaves. Um, and then also Andrew Jackson. There they plan on impeaching of Franklin Delano Roosevelt for putting cake clansman in the Supreme Court. So just some of them and then also, Candice Owen will be impeached now by Nancy Pelosi so she can't run in 2022 so Little comedy. Lighten. Well, something like except, uh, Chris pulled this. This is Do you have the sound of his team saying What about the rights in Portland? No, I didn't pull that. I didn't pull that one. Okay, well, you put it down the paper here and I don't want to. I don't want to say anything in front of everybody in Paris. You know, it's okay. It's all right. I know what they said. If you want to hear it funny, but it wasn't funny, but I think this this part was funny. Thistle so his his attorney, Michael Vander Wien, said when violent left wing anarchists conducted a sustained assault on a federal courthouse in Portland, Oregon, said Vander Wien. Mispronouncing Oregon, which I just don't know how you do that Oregon. Okay? Speaker. Pelosi did not call it an insurrection. Instead, she called it the federal lawmakers protecting the. Instead, she called the federal lawmakers protecting the building Stormtroopers. That was what he said about that. That's right. Yes. Um, I don't know how many people that stormed the capital went in there and went to the went to the Big January 6 speech from President Trump and I've seen during the summer We watched everybody running around smashing windows and marching and yelling and screaming, and it somehow being justified because of 400 years of oppression. And this is going to get a lot of people to write and hate me, but that's okay. I believe event lies that are told to people in order to create unrest. And whether it was the Nazis telling people ally and then creating unrest in order to get the people to do something. I believe a Vettel number of people in America were lied to And I've always asked for where is the actual evidence?.
