Intro: Howling (Sting) - Gunnar Olsen

Outro: Your Intro by Audionautix

Yeah, man, I think honor like performed some you know, do you heard something? Some rich will probably sacrificed a good or something true, went back whis came back, walk five times, reverse or something. Whatever it is, hello and welcome back to a fun fan fiction. Now, if you're wondering why this tone is very mellow, that is because they're going to be full pumped up energy coming your way. Man, what a weekend this was. We are your first. I am a gosh and I'm sorry, and let's get that's for a second. I was like, I have you not, you know, woken up something, no matter what it is. Started all off with some some Asmr s of some some Asim are sort of voice, because this episode is definitely going to be but the weekend was now, but like before reading into the big ticket items, because, I mean, everyone's talking about it. So many people have missed the highlight yesterday of what has happened otherwise on the track beyond just Max I, FIA Perez and Hamilton. So let's let's get into it with some some some, Mr Name some missed performances, and I want to start with right next to the podium, like Pfour and P Five, I don't know many people know this, but Pfour and p five went to Yukis to know that and P are ghastly what. How did they end up being there? It was, you know, I I think I'd pincked you this. It was completely a mic drop by Honda just before leaving a fun you know, three cars and top five is just amusing racy, right. I mean sure, Gaty has had some splendid performances over the year. He's had a splendid season. He's surprised with some brilliant performances over takes defenses and whatnot. But Yu Ki, I mean he started off with someone who was himself surprised why he got his contract when you and then exact last few races. I don't know what's got into him before. Man, what what was he on yesterday? I want to have what he had yesterday. Yeah, right, I think I think it was Honda had like injected all of their drivers with some special juice yesterday because everybody was on the top game. Yeah. So, yeah, all four cars doing just super brilliant yesterday. You know what? I wanted to point out something, by the way. When we started talking about this, we started with p four and, as usual, everybody forgot science, because I think nobody's talking about the pthree that Carl was going. That's his fad man every time he does that. I guess no one cares about it now. But, like, I think, you know, special props to him, like just like everybody else, I to never used to like pay attention to him earlier on, but I think through this season I've become a you know, I'm becoming a fan. Someone reached out to us, Tulky in reached out to us saying for him for a sorry, science is the driver of the season, and I agree to him because it's I mean he's shown who consistency throughout the season. He shown a sure commitment and you know the way he's adapted to this new car. He's got easy. I think, like he's the fastest person to be comfortable in a new car and a new team, in a new environment, outperforming his own teammate who's until like what latter I out of it, just so that just of the politics or order US happening there. It's a yeah, I it's awesome. Read lucklerk. Like, as always, I think pretty much everybody has attributed that luck. Look is the next best thing and Carlos fairly beat him. So, you know, conclude what you want to from it. Yeah, I mean I have my questions about I mean I again, yes, I agree with you. I totally love. I totally love La Clerk at, especially like with the two thousand and Nineteen and two thousand and twenty season he's had. I have my questions because, I mean Norris himself Elf has been performing super brilliantly. Something's got an into him. Some things went bad. Yeah, his systems malfunctioning internally or order or his just his luck's run out. And Yeah, I think not just for him, I think mcclaren in general. Yeah, it we have talked about this a couple of times. Like it seems like they're just fallen off like from a high point and they just not recovering. Maybe they have like given up on the season, I guess. But yeah, either ways, I think McLaren, both of them performed so well right up...

...to lately and then, yeah, there's something we had happened. Yeah, I mean this shears shown what was until last season was lookle at being that promising. This year has shown that there are many more promising drivers in the picture in the pipeline. Ghastly am I'm placing my bets again on Gast Lee, with a better refute car some of their TV's. He's definitely good. Word it takes to to be there. Nor as as we said Russell to. I mean this year he shown and bringing that Williams up all the way. So, yeah, I mean speaking of our Norris and Le Claire. I don't want to come back to that. IC was pthree rate when, when, I think, on the grid, he started pthree. Yes, yeah, he started p three. Yeah, man, I think his lucks genuinely run out. Yesterday, I think an issue after an issue. I think there was a radio message which said he's having gearing issues. He might drop the bag. Yeah, and a curb problem until as well. Yeah, slow slope puncher or whatever, forcing him to quit. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I think we are not much lust. Not His day in general. Even at the start he lost some positions because you kind of had to go out of the track rejoin. So yeah, not, not great overall. I mean he has qualification. Was Awesome, but again I think they probably didn't have the raspace and I think in general his luck just run out. Moreover, and event for Carlos, who's been driving better than his own teammate. Look cleric. I don't know what La Claire was into. It felt like he lost focus when Max was coming out of those pitch or really actually have a problem, like what happened there. Yeah, it felt like PTSD. I think he just remembered Austria two thousand and twenty me just he saw a flash of like Max and he's leg Oh my God, and just prodict and went of the truck. It was quite weird. D Yesterday, I don't know, it felt like all other drivers were treating Hamilton and Max as if they were explosive, because they were staying the fuck away from them. I think signs of the only one to battle Max for that breeze went to where actually behind him after the pre but otherwise, yeah, yesterday, I shouldn't have been a funny yesterday was Max, sources, Hamilton water. Yeah, but to finally, yeah, it's see again. We were trying not to talk about it. We still talk about it. This this this section belongs to Carlos. I wanna I want to come to your point, Saren, which is every time he gets up there on the podium, he goes and no tastes totally totally I think today, even though, like I saw, I saw the fact that he's pthree. It was just on my mind, but somehow during the podium celebrations and everything, I completely forgot about it. I forgot that there is a pthree there at all. I think mostly everybody did as well. It was it was a bit funny on the podium as well because I mean obviously Max and and Christian went up there yesterday, right. So, yeah, so they both are celebrating like crazy, they're both ranged in champagne and they're not turning back to either of these folks, and Hamilton's trying to just pray some champagne somewhere because he needs to stay there, up there in order, and Carlos is like what am I supposed to do at this point? Yeah, and I think this was probably the first time when he was actually celebrating his podium. Otherwise it's just so yeah to him in the background. Otherwise he just gets it like Oh, you penalty or whatever, you're up here. What you saying? Like you saw it somewhere that even if he wins a driver's championship, people are just going to remember the race that you won it in and like not him as a diversion. Exactly. Yeah, definitely hit it. I mean I saw this reddit comment where like people were just shut posting about you know that everybody forgets a man, even if he wins the championship, like they might interview somebody else, maybe the second, second person, instead of him. But but yeah, I know, I think I have like a huge hopes from him. We're all yeah, for the next season. Yeah, let's see what he does. For sure. For sure he's got uncomfortable in that for a re seat. I think he's got one more year before his contract expires, twenty and twenty two, and I think like Le Clerk is up until twenty twenty three. So, yeah, it's going to be an interesting fight in that in that ferrariy going down the list of topics that we have to cover before we get to the big one. Kimmy, Kimmy Man, we love you, I guess. I guess it's interestingly weird, and even I think Brundle or someone on the commentary box mentioned, is that it's it's usual...

...to have someone on their last race have some sort of a fuck up that, you know, they end up not finishing their race, and it was. It was a classic situation. Yep, to me. Yeah, definitely. I think this was the best way for him because, first of all, he became the drivate of that is. So you know Internet like Oh, yeah, he did doing it pretty much everywhere. I was seeing this that people planning toward him regardless of what happens in the days and that do buy a margin. Really like that. Exactly right. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, and and the best thing is that the interview thing that they have started these days at right up the race. I'm pretty sure he did want to do that. They probably just retired to scut I don't even know if he stayed back in the paddock to like the fur the race to finish, because he's like, okay, I'm gonna have my backs back to see you in Finland. His one leg was already there back home. I'm gonna Miss Because, to anyone yours in the sport, yeah, all my conscious memory has always seen him on that track. Two Thousand and six right. I guess I started somewhere around two thousand and sixty seven. He's always been there. It's gonna be we're not seeing him on that track next year, missing those interviews, those one liners, one words or whatever. He's famous. But right. So I hope he comes back as a race engineer or race adviser, yeah, or whatever, rather than just place. And I would love seeing him as a team principal. Oh, yeah, right, yeah, take one team boss. I I think he's probably just gonna go ice fishing and stay on that ice for d over. Yeah, no, but yeah, like you know, ever since, I mean even before I started following a fun, I've always heard about only two names related to a fun. That was shuemaker and Kimmy. And Yeah, I think Kemmy was one of the big reasons why I started watching a fun in the first place. And Yeah, I always have associated him with a fun and I fun with him and I think it will be pretty weird not see him. Yeah, yeah, there's a good send of by Alpha Romeo as well. Message called back to the two thousand, two thousand and twelve classic, yeah, I mean radio days. Now you'll be left alone. I hope you know what to do. Speaking of a wet trench man, wet will finally winning some championship after two those in Oh, yes, Oh yes, Oh yes, oh, yeah, I wanted to give out a shout out to wettl okay, because do you see what happened to him during qualification? That poor fellow could not man laugh at all. Yeah, yeah, I know. Let's take two minutes here about it. I think he had three, three good runs that are ruined. YEA, yea, to buy, to buy traffic, and then one by a yellow flag. Yep, that poor fellow, and he just has some terrible luck with them these days. Somehow or the other it always ends up that he somehow gets punished for some reason on the other. But regardless, the main point being here is that he got one of the awesome awards that all these veterans were fighting per all three of them. Yes, yea, and I think it's pretty close, as will write in the most overtakes the table that dare I think it's just one or two points separating them. Yeah, yeah, they were. They were trailing and going back and forth between each other by one or two overtakes throughout the past three four races. We will finally clenching onto it. I think Alonso didn't get much opportunity yesterday to overtake Uh Huh. I think bulk of whetals overtake yesterday were also with stroll, because stroll and whettle were battling it out. Why? Quite a bit yesterday. Stroll overd having little it will taking it back. So little more like I guess. I guess probably Aston Martin was like what'll needs for extra our take? So stroll you and we will need to go back and forth. Keep crazy whettles number. Oh yeah, I did see that right. First of all, okay, I didn't see much of the race except for Max and Lewis. Pretty much no one did. The camera other one did exactly. So I remember like some flashes and some scenes from my memories. But one of them I do remember that they, you both, were just, you know, flipping their positions and it was quite weird to see. I was very confused. What's going on between them exactly. So, yeah, but Kudos to all three of them. kind of shoes that, even if they're in the trailing end of their careers,...

...they still have it. And Yeah, and for the fact I mean like as soon as he parked his car right like, I don't think he cared who'd won. The Championship. Board had happened in front of him. Did we get the overtake championship? Is what he asked the first thing. Yeah, I think he wanted some Jelly Bean, million of those for some reason. Yeah, that was an interesting joke. What's the prize money for this? And I had million JELLYBEANS. I think is he's someone who's gotten comfortable not just with the car but like with the garage, because, I mean it's been multiple. See similar messages that we've heard over over the season. Yeah, man, little's a gem, little jam, I hope. I have a feeling he's definitely going to retire after next year. and Oh man, I mean Alonzo's forty two as well. So yeah, I mean he's going to go as well. It's going to be right, it's going to be multiple empty seats. Right, I'll be in, I mean Alonso, with Alpine, sure it's going to be an empty seat next year, but PAS tree comes in. Just a just a brief comment there as well. With pstree, he's driven brilliantly in this FTO season. He's got in. Yeah, he's won by like a huge margin as well. So, Yep, the sad part is, after having like an outstanding performance, in F to. That ft is not seen in the past few years. He still doesn't get like a cockpit seat and cash is king wins over wind talent. So yeah, PA drivers everywhere, isn't it these days? But yeah, I mean, as we speak about Alonzo and probably retiring next year, I think pst is being built up for that seats and I'm hoping pstree from F to gets that Alonso seat going in, going in next year. Yeah, well, let's pause here for some some messages, and then once we are back, folks, it's going to be the big ticket byem red bull versus Mercedes Max Versus Hamilton, Perez, Bote as FIA, and we close out. So give us, give US thirty seconds, here us out and we'll be back. Folks. Thank you for listening to us throughout the season. Two Thousand and twenty one F one comes to an end, but we had fun.

This takes time, money, energy, resources from our and to keep bringing you excellent episodes race after race. So thank you once again for this brilliant season and let's get back into the episode. For the big ticket. I can here battle of the titans right like, yeah, I have set this before as well, but yeah, I completely has been throughout the season. It's been insane. I love the graphics that have fun. You know has done. I don't know if you've seen it where they shoe like the points, a comparison between them throughout each race. It's so awesome to watch. It was been so neck to neck. I think this has been a season where you know you're going to keep talking about this for a while. I don't think it has ever been this close. If netflix were to make a movie about this, and if you know, if this was the story they came up at, people would just shit on them. Yeah, that this is impossible. Yeah, but here we are talking about it through true, true yeah, and I think like it's definitely I mean, who knows, Netflix would have just paid all that money to a fight, a to make a splendid season for themselves. So, Hey, I'm keeping all my options open at this point. But now the graphics have improved over the season. UH, Huh, at us. You know, viewers engaged throughout the...

...season with, you know, those those metrics and everything that they keep showing, and even with like those a ws s, Amazon, a WS, you know, addictions and stuff. So most of them have been accurate, but but you know, like, I'm gonna let's come, let's come to the drivers, and I want to I want to bow down to Hamilton at this point. Yep, for folks listening US throughout the season know that I am not a big Hamilton fan just because of Fishnanigin's post race and off their track, sorry, on that track. I am a fan of what he's doing with his position and his name off the track. But having said all of that and having had my stands, I want about down to him. Yesterday he deserved the win. For sure will come back to the championship, but yesterday deserved the win. That pace was scary. Yeah, yeah, that dry. What was the natural? Man? That drive was ridiculous. This just goes to show that you are a seventime world champion. Yeah, I think for that eighth and you know, no one else stands a chance. I mean she's sure dominant. Yeah, sure, dominant. Span I was. I was. I was so deflated at the start of the race because he just took off, you know, just took off and fucked off from there, and he's like, you know, not now, I'm going to see you directly at the finished lucky. That's what it went like. And he was gaining that building that gap or lap overlap, lap over lap, having worse tires than was stopping. was starting clearly had the pace qualifications proved that? Yeah, probably, race pace, probably not that much, but yeah, man, I'm speechless. Like what happened yesterday was something all inspiring, I guess. True. True. So ray start, he as you said, he works off that. There was a brilliant twenty five millisecond reaction time versus thirty five millisecond Max Reaction Time. So again there goes to show that you've driven more races than you know. Yeah, exactly how I went to react. It turns Sakes Max, tries to plunge in. Sure, that's a bit of a controversial point, where Hamilton did take a wider exit and cut the corner. I agree with our everyone at that point, I like, except the race directors and and the race to words. Everyone knew that was wrong, even British biased media at that point. Yeah, like, Hey, Hamilton needs to give this back or at least close in the gap or over. HMM. I sort of was angry, pissed again, obviously not at Hamilton, because if he, if they would have told him to give it back, he would have, because, yes, that another exactly. Yeah, some more pissed ID FI and will come to this topic as well, but we're coming back to the cheer dominance. Even if the position was switched, he would have overtook in him maybe three years now. It wrind and mattered, man, it did. Nothing. Mattered yesterday like everything, like red will threw everything that they had at him and yeah, still he was just something else. I mean it took not just overall team effort from that bill but also Hamilton having a Shit Day in terms of luck for, you know, for them to be Tim and again, I'd like to Code One of our listeners and viewers, Long Time Talkin', who's mentioned that. He and I agree to him. It's like Lewis has had luck over luck over so many years that it's fine that he had a shitty day yesterday and luck wasn't on his side yesterday, which I agree. It's fine. He will do no, I totally agree, you know. I mean I was talking about this with another friend of mine, that it's very rare that like Hamilton runs out of luck. Most of the Times. What happens is if he, if ever he does not out of luck, he is also messed up at the same time. Yeah, and but I don't think I remember a time when he like gave his best and his luck wasn't with him, but I guess this was like one of those rare yeah, d times when that happened. Yeah, I mean yesterday was was. I mean everyone had given up after a point and like even honor who's continuously on radio with the commentators for us, was like hey, we need some racing gods to shine on us, and even Max felt like he's he knew what I was going to happen. So there's nothing short of a miracle and Paullywood drama movie, whatever you want to call it. Yeah, man, I think hornor like performed some you know, do you wear something, some ritual, probably sacrificed to good as upthing, true, went back. It's came...

...back, walk five times reverse or something, whatever it is. Yeah, he listed and it came through somehow. But Hey, I think, I think what you said yesterday deserves to be on a tshirt. Hamilton definitely deserved the wind for the race, but Max deserve the championship. Both of them have driven like, Oh my God, we've not seen such a racing since since, I want to say, like twenty two thousand and eight maybe, when Hamilton won by one point. So so it going to the wire. Hasn't happened since then, at least for me. Two Thousand and twelve. Sure, when we're two, one, two, but both of them have driven top of their game throughout the season. Yeah, definitely. I am completely of the opinion that Max definitely deserve this championship because he has driven brilliantly throughout the season. Luck hasn't had been on his side, at least for the like, you know, first half of the season, I guess. Yeah, in which a lot of times, like Bakoo, if you can say like, he just I mean he that that was his race to lose. And Yeah, these just ran out of luck. there. Similarly goes, I think, for a Sylveston as well. Yeah, but I think overall he has, you know, been very dominant in a lot of races. He has given everything in at times. He yes, I do agree. He did drive a little dirty at times as well. Definitely, this is his first championship. I'm sure he's going to mature as he keeps, you know, winning and keeps competing with other top drivers. Yeah, and Yah, Kudos to him. I think it would be deserved it. Yeah, lady, luck from my strictly at coming into Max this year. Fai feels, feels like something's working out good for Max, which day for Great. So yeah, quite quite a quite a good race from an overall season, I think. I think again, it's all could have. Would issue a thing, but I think more lost the race for Hamilton by not pitting out of the two opportunities that they did have to do that. Yeah, I definitely did drop the ball that because, I mean, they should had expected this because, I mean, there were signs of things going wrong because, first of all, like Norris got a puncture and they knew it was because of the cubs and like people were having tire issues. Even from the perspective of Fire Life Off Hamilton's car, they should have pitted him just for safety in case, you know, something feels or something right. So I think they left that opportunity of window been right where if things went wrong you would lose it, and that's exactly what happened. They should had covered. They had the peace advantage advantage and it wouldn't matter right, like using the track position, because it was clear that over taking was possible yesterday on the track and they had a very clear peace advantage. So I don't know what came through them and they didn't fit him. And I thing like, even if they would have pitted, Aye would have just still come back after these, the three or four car traffic that was going on forever, and that to that too. I mean that's that's been close racing throughout the whole race. So that's some brilliant racing. That's also gone unnoticed, because those four cars clar enough. Ferrari, yeah, there the Alpha, towery, and I forget to the fourth one was. Yeah, they've been neck and neck, all four of them, throughout the whole race. But yeah, I mean I think you, Uh Huh, I think this guy not crafty. The Bundle, your bundle, I think, was calling it battle royal at that was perfectly it was. It was like that. It was like and yeah, I mean if Hamilton would have betted, he would have just come after that back and, as you said, right, I totally agree, like with that pace, with that drive that he had yesterday, and we were taking opportunities. He would have taken trolley like three laps or four laps to to get past them, and it wasn't like Max had super place as well. So yeah, there would have been a gap built up. It sure, and I think the main apportunity was BC. I can I can still kind of understand why they did not fit during the safety card itself, but we are see. Definitely they should have done that. Just think about it, like his tires will be so much fresher. I'm pretty sure he probably might have a lot bigger chance at defending this position on that point. Yeah, yeah, and on the other end, I think it was a perfect play by B Red Bull, because they had nothing to be as at...

...that point. I mean, once you've given up everything, it feels like it doesn't matter whatever we do at this point. Let's just gamble everything in. It's an Aledge sort of situation, and it played off for them. So, yeah, that's true. The other beautiful thing, right, the other beautiful thing was they played a perfect team in yest oh yeah, it was so awesome to see one through qualification and as well in the race check, who played the perfect rule. I can they should give him a very big bonus for this, probably because like the way he executed these moves perfectly, the qualification of the too that we saw. Right. Yeah, that was brilliant man, what a strategy. I loved it, every bit of it, you know, giving him total sector to the street where it turns, and then, you know, so he can just go into the sector three in clean, airy and brilliant, like. Wow, I was so impressed by that strategy and didn't did the same thing again by basically using Petz as a roadblock for Hamilton at wow, what a fight that was. That was like some of the best action I've seen the season. Yeah, those two laps to be to be very honest. I mean we've seen drama across the whole reason, across the season and over the years, but like good battle fighting like the one we saw with a Lonzo versus Hamilton. I think this this goes up there. Yeah, where as versus Hamilton really two laps, man, one of my favorite fuel laps from the race. And and Max was perfect. To call out him as a legend because he helped Max drop that eight second deficit to one point something second. Yeah, Yep, Yep, definitely fair play to him, like and both of them. It was so clean racing. Rightly, yes, they were so so much at the edge, so close. Again, said Hamilton, say some danger is driving. You know, that's that's Hamilton. As we know him. You know it's called me and, yeah, exactly. I think this is part and parcel of his you know, persona part of this game. And personally, I guess I would say because I think it's more about playing the mind games, playing, you know, covering his own as, just for the stewards and things like that. We've seen this him. We've seen him doing this a lot of times. I think even the same thing happened with even with him and keep the right for FBE. I think this was also on controversy in general, where I think this same thing happened in Saudi Arabia twice. Yeah, with Hamilton and Nikita. Yeah, and it happened twice this time. Yeah, yeah, I see. This is this is where my emotions start changing, because at one level I'm like, Dude, you deserve to win, heart goes out to you. And then, yeah, you make a comment like this and I'm like fuck you, come on any I mean Jeremy Clarkson, who for folks who are who are longtime fan of the grand or or the top gear glary, Jeremy Clarkson was right to point out dangers driving my ass. All Fair and I agree to him. I mean it was, yeah, a bit of hard racing. Yeah, I and and as Massy also might we are into motor sport rakes. It is called waterly sing. What what was he doing? What? What was that? He as a Sassy mouth man. Will come back to the FIA topic. But but I see Massy, Sassy, messy. Let's that. Let's put that on a t shirt, right. Hey, folks, by the way, just a just a slight detour here, we're thinking of launching merch with all these squirky quotes that Sarah comes up with and put them on a t shirt. So if you are interested, let's let's, let's see some of those comments and emails to us. Set at the rate different fan fiction or contact us at the very different fan fiction and will bring in some worlds starting next season. But yeah, but, yeah, danger is driving my ass, can't. Yeah, that's absolutely right. It was just heart bit of racing. Press defending like a lion or Kon needs to move aside, right, just really yesterday. Yeah, I think Checko, I mean Max, definitely Oweco Bureau too, because he pretty much singlehandedly like increased Max's chances at during the race, and it completely played the second fiddle played the team game, did everything in his power pretty much to help Max overall. And Yeah, I'm pretty sure Red Bull have found a gym in Checo Dally. He's stupid to leave him totally, totally and, as we've seen over the past few races as well, he's gotten so much more comfortable into that car. If you would have been this comfortable with the car starting on from the season, definitely this constructor championship points would have also gone to rid will, I...

...have no doubts it. But sure you are coming in new to a new team, to a new car, to a new everything, so it takes time, yeah, build your stuff up. But yeah, Kudos to Red Bull and Helmet Marco for finding and not letting Perez retire last year, because he was almost on until, it tells he'll probably gave a bunch of yeah, it is really weird. As will, I remember at the end of two thousand and twenty check couldn't have a seat like I think it was somewhere sometime in like the midbreak. Yeah, when the news broke that he's getting the second ad will seat. So yeah, he had like exited a fun thinking that he might not get anything. But yeah, I think he is be food. Yeah, he is. He is. What does say spy? He takes people. Awesome, John, Yep, speaking of Max Versus Hamilton. Sure there's this bunch of controversy to also talk about. Will come to that with the FIA topic. But post race, post race visuals, were was just two brilliant and on a call out, like conversations with Dads, at least for me. Yes, yeah, right, like Papa was stepping it. You also stepping again, Papa Hamilton coming in. Yeah, such classic acts of respect, man, now, I love it, but like it's so what I love about this is that at the end of the day, even these fun drivers are humans, and that reminds you of that. Like they want their respective families to be there at these important events, and both of the dads were kind of there to celebrate and, you know, console their respective sons, and it was touching. Overall, Hamilton, I really appreciate what a class act he has been after this race because, yeah, to be honest, he was robbed of the victory. Like that's that's true, and the maturity shows right, like he took his time, he didn't get out of the car at that point. I thought that you know something controversial might happen after this. But though like it was weird, he snapped out of it. He congratulated Max and Yeah, Class Act overall. I mean he didn't bring his car to the garage. I don't know why he did. I'm leaning sorry. was there something? No, no, no, I thought like maybe he is just too shy of the camera. That's gonna I was gonna say. I was gonna give him the benefit of doubt, saying probably his car had some issues or whatever it like. So you didn't come, but I can understand why he didn't bring he was. He was sitting in there for quite some time, but I think like that came to him consoled him. There's a beautiful just be from wettle as well. Yeah, Mick, who went up there, who's probably part of our controversy at this point. Hey, my my prediction almost came through. So people who were who are new to this episode and haven't heard the previous episode, one of my predictions was if I'm Milton was going to win, make my just run into Hamilton and be like this one goes for you. That would have been too blatant. So this one's actually smart. Yep, they're right, create an incidence so that a safety car is called. I think that's really you're out of the blue and and you don't and you don't even touch too much to the other car, so that you are you're raising questions and it's all on he lativ crash. No one's even thinking about make making a yeah, yeah, with brilliant and brilliant, yeah, I don't want to say a loser, but like in court, loser because he didn't win. Attitude and in respect for the game, a well documented post race commentary and everything just just re introml Yep, Yep, Yep. And you know, one more thing I kind of wanted to point out that kind of shows the difference between boot drivers. And this is probably my opinion and I'm probably wrong, but I think that if, if the situation was exactly the verst okay everything that happened, if we reverse that, that Max being in Hamilton's place and Humilton being in Max's place, I believe that two things would be different. A let's also appreciate that maxis celebration after winning the championship was very well contained. I really appreciate him for that because I think at some point he definitely he knew that, at least for today's race, Hamilton definitely deserved that when yeah, and I like the fact that it has celebration was, you know, measured and not in the face, as compared to what...

...we saw something similar what Hamilton did and Sylveston. And I'm pretty sure if Hamilton would had won in a similar manner that Max one has, celebration would be aboutious and at the same time, Max wouldn't be a class act during oh no, I would. I think. I think there would have been a repeat of Mac versus hook one in the bed guy that he just pushes off. Hamilton be like what the Hell, man? So, yeah, yeah, I know II somewhere agree that rolled reverse would have been different. Celebrations would have been crazy, over the top, I think, like Hamilton would have just run across the lab five kilometers that day. Is Yeah, yeah, though, you know, regardless what the result was, I'm just an awe of the season that we have hired right like I'm lucky that we got to experience this season and watch these two super math leats, you know, just battle it out, love it all the way. And yesterday's race, who was voters wait, was he there? And I think he's already eating. Yeah, I think he's already becoming a Williams driver. All right, sorry, Alpha Romeo driver, Alfe, for the coming Kimmy. Man, he's becoming Kimmy for the camera. Man, this gonna be somewhere back of the pack, because I need to learn how to drive with an Alphai here between. Oh, that's what he was doing, was simulating Alpha's race pies. Oh, now I get it that that makes sense. Man. He's just been lucky that, where as didn't get into this beast more early on, and he gets to sit on Pthree in the driver's championship. Otherwise. Yeah, he make Perez would have ever taken him like a long time ago. Yeah, you know, while we are dissing him, I do also want to give him a praise, and this is superb statistic that I heard, that boat ass has finished in top ten for every single qualification that he has participated in with mercedies. I think that's a brilliant with mercedy. So not this with mercy, with mercedies now, yeah, with mercedies throughout his car. That's actually it's either being that he has not participated or like has been at DNF, but if he has completed the qualification, he has been on top ten. That is that's superb. Yeah, that shows like he's consistent man like no matter what, like people does him. He played the perfect role, agree, and I mean sure he might have overstayed his welcome, but nonetheless, mean he's given stuff to show for. Well, yeah, yeah, Yep, and like I'm like to be honest, most of these couldn't had one these many world championships without pot as any other driver wouldn't be as complacent and, as you know, agreeable to the terms that they were, you know, imposing on him. Yeah, I means we saw that cross book. Doesn't sixteen exactly that you put on? I mean, Andy, obviously, were every drivers there to win their own championships of form. Sure. But yeah, I see what you're saying is you're on to another mind numbing topic. If I need to assign men, if I if I just needs to like put their papers down, not come back next day are and just just stay there. You know what I think is required as the need to be overhaul of a lot of rules. I think the nery clearly need to sit down with teams, with drivers really think we think the approach off starting rethink the approach of the rules that they have. I think that needs to be a lot more consistency and we have O Yay. The thing that, if I has been consistent about is being inconsistent. That's yes, as you know well, said another t shirt court folks from our Surgen, another t shir course. Go ahead, yeah, I know, so that's what like I mean. I think there needs to be an overhaul year. Oh, it doesn't make sense. The whole controversy with safety car, you know, and letting the lap cars and lap and I think it's weird. I understand that they were under pressure, that they didn't want to finish the race under safety car. I kind of do understand that, but at the same time, if that was really their objective, I read this online as well. A couple people were talking about this, and I think I to kind of agree with it, is that they probably should have done a red flag and, in just understanding, start either red flag or like stay true to their decision, because it creates confusion. It necessaries rate digis...

...because for the first let's I think it was four or six laps. I can remember like let's say there was five laps. Would like for the first two or three laps lap cars weren't allowed to unlap themselves, and therefore the next two laps, when they knew they want to do whatever they want to do, they were allowed to l and lab themselves. and that creates the confusion. And it's all on FIA, for whatever it is. Because Max had nothing to lose, so they took the plant. Yeah, with that Pitsnow Hamilton had everything to lose, so they decided to stay out because they were exactly hoping that the decision of lap cars not lapping on themselves will stay right. Yeah, it's all. It's all a cop off will BYFIA, paid by maybe Netflix or or anyone. SACER probably came down but two hours and gave them. Yeah, I don't know. This is got a very big batch of Red Bulls at their side. I don't know why they changed or what happened. They change their decision midway, which and and and see this anger. I mean, for anyone who's listened to souther Arabian GP, it's been double explicit episode because of the anger and frustration that we've shown in that one, because of these inconsistencies by and it started throughout the year, man, it started throughout the year with like corner cutting being inconsistent, corners not being monitored and trackle yeah, it's it's one weird Ye. It's very weird that they have like subjective corners where some corners you can go out of, some corners you have you cannot. It doesn't make sense. Like you know, have some consistency and white line. Either have the white line as the bounds or don't have anything as bound and let's just people do some off ruiting. So it doesn't make sense. We you know what, let's take let's take a FI as a complete entire topic in the postseason discussion we're going to have. But like for yesterday, this whole mess, who was definitely FIA, as it has been over the years. They need an overhaul, I completely agree with you. And to to add to all of it, they need to bring inconsistencies, man, like there is so much inconsistencies between races, between driversion and what not. But as of yesterday, what was happening between Massy and like these these red bull garage in the the MERCEDIES, dimagin yeah, I am, I'm really wondering if this is what they talk when they know everybody's listening to I really wonder what happens when nobody's listening. The amount of times that they complain to Massy. It's just weird, man. Oh My God, tot I love that comment of to like no, Masie, no. It's literally like someone taking a toy away from a kid and the toy shouting no, give it to me back, please. No, no, you need to go to sleep, it's sleep time. I really wonder what happened to to to stable after that. So, as much as I was I was sort of frustrated Hamilton not getting this win that he totally deserved by by all of these fuck ups, I was so happy to see toto being frustrated with no JAP on his face and that anger as as that gave me so district joy, for sure. Who Want to call its a distance? Being me being saved is but yeah, I was happy. Yeah, I know, I do like, I love it whenever to to is unhappy. That was really aprazing, but so, yeah, I mean regardless of what happened, I think. Yeah, anyways, I think there's nothing that they can do about it. Anyways, now they ted protesting, but I think that God are at records. Will Right. Yeah, and then, to your point, Sassy, massy comes back with toto. We are into moto racing. We are into racing. Yeah, that was I think does the thing right. Like I think they entered him to the point where it just starts dissing them and and that comment, soothing voice seems so full of sarcasm, Sassenas. Yeah, it's I love I see, man, I'm good. I'm becoming a fan of Massy more than anyone else at this point. Yeah, they should make him a commentator. I guess that would be really fuck through. Another fan writes into US saying. Something else that we should discuss is should FIA have rules around how important to particular races, because yesterday they did bring in one extra rule where they said if Max or Hamilton, either of them, tried to take each other out the crashing in, then there will be consequences. So I think it's worth bringing this...

...topic up also when we when we do talk about it, should F I also consider subjectiveness based on how important that particular race is as well. But yeah, day it was. It was a good point. Yeah, no, good point. I agree. And Yeah, I mean that all brings in the subjectiveness that we've talked about many times, right, like at where do we draw this boundary of what races how important and what is not? And Yeah, it's it's a difficult decision. I do understand. Like you know, writing these rules are not easy. Laws in general. Writing laws itself is very difficult. You it's how much, ever intricted the law that you write, there are going to be situations will fall in these at cases which are not powered. Yeah, and it's always difficult to, you know, perform these tie breaks as such. And Yeah, I think. But either ways, I think, yeah, there needs a lot of change stewarding the way we have. It doesn't work right now. It creates confusion a lot of I mean I personally know a lot of people were watching their first off a race, this one, and they were thoroughly confused about a lot of things that we're going. He says how it is and I completely sympathize with them because at one point they're saying that, you know, I don't unlap, and they're like yeah, I'm laugh now and laugh now, and then they're leg in the safety card, get out, get the allot.
