This isepisode number four, first, ever of its kind with race week in play, and what arace it was nail witer to the end, will diving into the weekend what a raceweekend it was right. Saren o your thoughts on the weekend. It was worthyof a season okne! That's all I can say it was filled with excitement. It hadjust a right amount of drama in there and even if the results look same as twothousand and twenty, it still was a amazing place. Yeah Mail, biter to the end drama, ridingoff from qualifying every every lap sort of being that heywhat's going to happen, and not just at the top, but you know even excitingthings happening in the mid feet so, overall in an amazing race qualifyingright, it's been an interesting qualifying for me. I think the twothings that stood out to is: why did Peres use soft when he had that onelast chance to get on to the grade? He could have probably just made it intocon and yeah. I would have loved to see atleast one of the legends into Q, three, but yeah. All three of them were out.Saranacs wit, you yeah qualification itself, for this Ries was quiteinteresting. A couple things with juster out for me was a charge Rosselagain with a wile don performance getting into q to dragging thatWilliams over their great effort by him, and the other thing was Mazapil or better known, as, as I penthese days cause some yellow flags, as as therewas some issue with signs, so there were two yellow flags on the trackwhich caused OCON and wete a lot of trouble. They both had to kind of they had bad lap times because of thatand Weta really got the worst of it. The interesting thing about this sportis that part things in the previous session canreally really affect you in the next session and that's what exactlyhappened with bittle the drama for today's re is pretty much started. Evenbefore the cars were on the track. Our wette was called to the stewardsbecause he failed to abandon his hot lap. He did slow down for the YellowFlags, but he was supposed to actually abandon thelap, and he didn't do that. So he was got to the stewards and he was given afive great place penalty, which basically put him at right at the endof the Crab Day yea, he didn't have five places to giveaway so yep, so yeah pretty unfortunate for him. Hisrace was going to be byed right. They and there itself talking about badraces for a moment that Paris was having nightmares. He was while he was getting to the grade daring, the formation lap.I think he had some issues and his car tall right before. I think the lasttone, or something like that and yeah pretty much he had to try and get that car started again. Hehad to get into the pit line. They have to do an extra formation lap. This timewas basically subtracted one lap from the total time of the race. It was avery, very weird thing. Yeah. I wonder if that that extra formation lap costwas tapinbut, he will come back to that...

...towards the end of the episode tostatum. Yeah. Think t e the course of the second racebier continued at Red Bill. I felt sad but hey. I was so happy to see him eventhough we're starting from the Prater so happy to see him at least be in thatrace and then what a race it was for him as well, but a race start wasamazing. I think what's happened, being very smart in on that strait, becausehe just if he's already, he just went all the way to the right breaking thatrace line, conventional race line that the drivers have taken, and obviouslypeople on the back want to want, don't want to break a so they are followinghim to their ride, but that first turn is a left hand into the right right. Sothere is quite smart to move from West appin and back of the grade at leastthe top five. There was so much fighting going on into that first lapitself that we sort of continued and causedmomentum for white a lot of shufflings in in the start of the race, for Ari, very surprising, at least forme, had an amazing place where Charles was able to eventually get hold ofpeace. Three at a point which is to myself prices. Amazing, Imean first of all for for everyone out there I expected for are to be back ofthe grit somewhere name coming off of two thousand and twenty. I didn'texpect them to be where they are, but it's just been so surprising to me andCharles what I want to start he's head, but then not to just render mine otherdrivers, land o Norris. I mean that McLaren, Oh, my God, that that thatyoung kids just been killing at the start. Yeah I mean my excitement all over theplace, because gastly was fighting for that, be four and p three, a two at ata point or to start yeah I mean it was it wasinsane the start it was. It was not just at the front where battles weregoing on, it was all throughout exactly and that I was really interesting.People were overtaking each other wital jumped from e nineteen to p fourteen,and it was just craziness everywhere, Timmy Rican and jumped from P fourteento p eleven yeah. I mean, I think, all veterans kind of were trying to gain a couple positions it tome that that sort of felt, like you know, experience more than just thecar, because the way the way was stuffin started, he sort of createdthat tight squeeze on the back and it, and it wasn't that easy to sort of getthrough cars. But then you could see these veterans sort of make their wayusing experience to their advantage right, irrespective of the type of carthey had, which is amazing. One event that I loved, at least the war happenedin the start, was Mastin. Spinning is after working after word, he had doneduring qualifying. I in my head, he was Groan to- and I was like this- this budon it end up doing something like Grogan I had my fingers crossed and then hisfun. I was like okay, we're going to have we're not going to see drama, atleast in a side way, but anyways he's fun and any eventuallyat least created. A safety casters like the race is anyways just started, whichis going to be exciting. You've created a safe taker, yeah yeah, it's safety cars. You know I lovesafety cast most of the times, but sometimes especially at the start ofthe days yeah. It feels like it kind of neutralizes, the drama, yeah and so yeah, but I'm glad was tappingcame out better after the start in the safety card.Basically, the good thing about safety causes that whoever the leaderof the racist gets to choose when the race restarts when the safety car goesin, and that's a very that's, a very important skill for eachdriver to maintain the pace and retort threes at the right time and was tappenwas able to do that. Yeah, I mean, and the amazing thing he did again therewas red like safety are basically for. Folks is something that makes everyone go slow on that track inLa man term, so that if there is any dick debris or anything on the trackwhich can affect the cards and the safety of the race is taken care of,and this could go on for as long as possible and less until the the racedirectors feel that it's safe to continue and when it the place where it ends is when a newwlap starts and the safety cars out of...

...the track, and in this case right whathappened to us. There is these dates. After the checkedflag, finished line and the beauty, the beauty that Max showed was, he went aslow as possible on that strait right before that checked flag line so thathe could keep everyone so tight and as soon as he crossed that line he knewhad to. He had to pick a pace of the wise people could start overtaking andhe went again all the way to the right breaking their trace line, and it is sobeautiful for him, but but thoughts on raise art from you after after safetyor self yeah. One thing I reach- I really noticed this time is that Honda was not joking. When the foe theyhave a new engine that that thing is a rocket Chelah. They are matching upmost cities as close as they can and yeah. I think this year would probablybe a very strong year from Max and red poll, and that showed the restart ofthe safety car where he was, he confidently had enough peace and he wasable to keep that gap to Hamilton right after the restart Hampton. I was not in West appendage right after the safetycar, and he wasn't there for quite a while. So definitely they have really made big strides in the enginedepartment. The the other interesting thing that happened right after thesafety car was mixchoor. Spinning that just kind of shows at what aterrible state has cunty is that car is. I don't know what whatthat car is, and they have pretty much, as we had talked about last time, thatthey have pretty much said that they are not going to make any developmentsthis year. So I am expecting just these events occurring again and again, as isthe new aliens season yeah, that's right, we could. You couldsee that say it that week definitely yeah. I'm talking about talking about crashes. Ghastly had amoment of his on port. He kind of, I think, had he over break or something likethat and just nudged into Ricardo and basically lost his front wing. I couldsee that the front wing and its entirety broke off from the nose andflew apart on to onto the side of the track and that that was a funny moment.Ye mean that Honda engine bullet, as was also working for the this B team- Iit wasn't just yeah yeah. Definitely, Alfa Tani lookedquite strong and I'm guessing. If ghastly didn't have this moment in thisrace, I think he could have had a very good result this time for sure what was he was was he was he like thethree at or fighting for p three at some point during race Tart as well?Right like it was just o yeah, I think Charles and gastly riving at it. Now Ithink earlier, Botas and Charles were going in shocky after it was ghastlyand Charles talking about Charles and Botas, I think Ferrari after a verylong time have are in the position to fight merceries, and that's reallygreat, I'm quite happy about that that there are more teams who are nowchallenging mocos this year, yeah yeah, I mean there. The safety car,as you said right, like, is quite eventful, usually in terms of pitchstops, but what yeah? The fight have just beenamazing, I can't remember, but was there? wasthere also a fight between Charles and Lando? At some point? Oh yeah, the fights all over the placeI think Botas finally was able to. You know gain some distance from Charlesbecause at the end of the day, Charles was definitely over driving his cartrying to fight Potin most. We still has that edge of Alan. I think at somepoint he was able to Haust fly away from Charles, so Charles was basically and ghastly was out of the pictures, acause of his issues, a land of got that advantage and he was able to catch upwith Charles and they were going at a corner after corner. You know side byside. This is this wheel to wheel action. Is You know what gets me towake up at six M in the morning towards the race and and it was there so yeah,I'm a happy person to Basil Yeah, so yeah moving on, I think, rightafter the restart things started to settle down, everybody was kind ofgetting into the crito so into their positions on the track and...

...t that's when basically, everybody you know gets into the waiting game ofwho is the first team that fits, and you know, basically it determines thestrategy, as so that other people can counter it and yeah. I think Alpin wasthe first with Alonso, where they got him into the pit to change tiresand forcing their openen. You know to take some action about that yeah I mean what what was it that yousaid right before he started recording what is way alone or starts an undercut train right, Oh yeah, because that's how it works. You knowone person pits and then everybody is panicking. Okay, you know this team hasput in a aftersong somehow and then everybody is choosing whether to pitnow later under cut on it. It's so interesting to see if you're, seeing arace life. You know that you know the comment:trators pause when there's a radio message, and as soon as the firstperson Pats, it's all team, radio, starting to a Mamook, taste and yeah. Thecommentary is gone for Mave to lapse because teams are just, but it was an interesting start to theintercut train. Right like undercut essentially, is nothing but pittingearlier into the into the laps, so that you have that slight edge of freshertires over folks that are already out on that tract. You have that momentumgoing in gaining those those extra positions, building off a Delta withwith the folks that you overtaken and then when they pit you get an extraedge with with that bleed that you've taken solons, started it and soon to followers more we've. Seen More to do this quite offend, they do have a very wellformulated and proven to win Undercut Strategy and hamlet on was right on topof it right. Oh Yeah Mirk is great at it, and notjust that that it's not only about strategy that they make. It's alsoabout they have two drivers who are very close to each other, doing it.That is most of the Times because of which they can create these strategies,which you know they can execute perfectly because they have somebody onthe track to hold the position. They don't have to give up the position justbecause they're you know deciding on an anticaire right. So there there are essentially threetypes of compounds in the race: a softer, medium and a hard type of tire,so yeah the way. The Way I understand it is soft, may go shorter, a distancewould give you a better performance and then, as you move towards the hardcompound, it gives you lesser performance but lasts you way longer.So it was interesting to see that the first end recut by Hamilton theydirectly gave him hard the hard tire and, to my mind, I'm thinking he'sprobably go going to go towards to the end of the race, because he's done thisin the past I'll be complaining towards the end of the race that Booi don'thave any tires, which also is ready to hear, but but he, when he put it withputting on the heart tires, I was hoping for a red bull to also stop. ButI love the fact that they try to overshine, and you know disprove, Hamiltons and recordby just staying out there longer cause, because Max was on the mediums. If I'mnot wrong our soft at least, and he had more at least performance to chew outof those cards. Even though Hamilton was a new tire and- and it was aperfect battle of strategies- I it wasn't an IT- wasn't being compelledby what the other teams doing, but they were completely in the game. It was anamazing rival we at the top, not just more dominating and like previousseasons and a true true battle of strategies happening there. Oh Yeah, and one thing which kind ofyou know gives me the confidence that the season would be a lot moreinteresting than a couple of seasons that we have hired in the last coupleof years is that earlier on, redpoll always had that deficit in performancefor which they had to come on, sat and because of that a lot of times theythey couldn't make these gambles and strategies. They have to kind of followwhat most Otis is doing, because otherwise, if you don't have you know enoughperformance in your car, you cannot do those campers- and I think this year,since they do have the performance with them. They can actually venture out andtry these new strategies out and try to beat Mercedes, not just on the track,but also on Statty, and I think that that is going to make this season a lotmore interested are over me and S.

...speaking of that deficit, right like ifin earlier seasons, red bull had the deficit to just give that nudge to theto the top fighting teams, I think the middle of the pack is doing exactlythat right now with McLaren, to my surprise, again for Ari and Alfatar as well right, they aregiving they have. They are in the range of the deficit right now to just keepthat Bush. Definitely within the Formula One point five, but keep thatpush even to the top teams and, as we've seen right like Lando and Leclair,going all the way up to p four and P threes. Oh Yeah- and it's quite evidentthis year, like all the teams, are so close together. I feel I so I right uptil last year there was a very clear distinction between like the threetears of teams that were there, where we would say that you know most of Lesand read Bulward in a tear of their own. These leading midfield teams, which isbasically McLaren the former racing point which is nowAston, Martin and, I suppose also a now was I mean now. It's called Alpin, but these three teams were in one pack andthe rest in the other, so I think overall this year, I'm not able to doit to mine honestly. These distinctions excat for has an Williams eay, but otherwise it's a really mixed up fieldand that's and that we could see in this rays even look at Alfatar likeunfortnate ghastly. You didn't have a good race today, but Yuki Yuki had apretty amazing race. He was a rookie and he is a rookie, and this was hisfirst reassigned, yeah yeah I mean, even though I astly didn't finish. Imean that as stuff luck on his side, but you know if he would have stayed inthe race. I wouldn't have been surprised to see him way up in the point. But while all this actionwas happening on the front and we talk about midfield, the mid race sectionwas was completely for a viewer on whatever is happening not on the frontof the Residet was like all the ifackins yeah. I think, basically after Hamilton pitted andlike after he was behind and was tapping was inthe. Meanwhile. You know just cruising her head and not gaining or not losing and samething. Hamilton Self was cruising. Everybody was just playing the waitinggame, so things kind of started, getting boring at the front, but but atthe mid part things were getting super interesting. I mean Yuki again likeplaying the strategy game. He stayed out longer everybody when they startedpitting. He stayed out on the field and he got the PX position because of that and yeah there was a lot going on.Especially did you see the amazing fight between alone or science andbattle while they were going at it? You know a hundred percent and it was justinsane to watch. I Yeah I even Ansen called it out in his post, wace you're,exactly bang on to not have any words to describe that situation, because itwas like the good old days for me right on a point it out in the post waysaying yeah. We had a fund race during the middle of the race. It was somegood rivalry with old friends and over. It was a good race, so o o him. So forhim also, I think the the highlight of the race was, you know, battling hisold mates on that trite and, and it was fun it lasted for a few laps. It wasfun yeah I mean. Unfortunately, both of twoof these three names had a terrible taste, but they gave us some realreaction on the track and yeah, I'm very happy about that. It was. It wasgood to see battles so close that I have missed this a lot in the pastyears. Yeah I mean having seen such races over the years and whatever washappening in the last. You know two years with their dominants and you knownot a clear I will read. This lay, as was me feeling like a Lancer is like.Yes, it's the good old days and we are back to the competition, were you knowwe're longing to see right, yeah yeah. So while all this was happening at themid field between the lone of science and vental, the flag sit altromuove,you know just having a chill Sunday afternoons and yeah they were prettymuch...

...just cruising by. I didn't really evensee them on this care O en E. I because they're more to like yeah, but I mean they just missed thepoints I think they came in eleventh entry wealth- I guess just one behindeach other, so that's great! Actually Al frome has probably made somesignificant progress because last year they they could have any dream ofcoming eleven and twelve, so yeah great great job at Roma. Meanwhile, arace leader decided to pit. Finally, because yeah he probably was facingsome tie degradation issues, and so he pitted everybody expected that heprobably would change to hards, and you know justdrive that to the end of the race and try to make it her one stop trace, buthe went on to another mediums which was kind of surprising, because thatessentially guaranteed that he had to pit again, because basically FIA has arule that for every race they have these mandatory retires. So what youtalked about earlier when we have three compounds, so the one compound is keptas a mandatory compone that you have to put on your card during the race andfor this was it was hard and since Max hadn't put Harta. Yet by going on tothe medium tires, he basically sealed the deal that he had to put one moretime on to harden that. That was a very big gamble, because, even though you know the fact that Hamilton was onhard, there was a chance that you know he could just go to the end. Yeah onthe stires. So yeah I mean Kudos to a red bull, for you know trying that outand you're absolutely right, like we'veseen, we've seen Hamilton, pull that off right, like to everyone's surprise,is e out even to that fact that that he's limped in with three tires winningarray so he's. But but it was interesting to see that thethe again went ahead with that under pit strategy for Hamilton Lap, twentynine, a d, and that was the period when I think mere decided to sort of have. You know a mark pitched off orboth their drivers. It's they are. They think they are probably better off witha double stack which I'm, which I was happy to see. They didn't do but againlike clap, twenty nine lap, thirty or thirty first was it was it was stillback to back in terms of labs and there was that effect of someone gettingaffected and again, sadly, this time it was protest, Oh yeah, but as that poor fellow, Ithat when you got a catch, a break, I don't understand- I mean I don't I'mnot a fan of his I've never been a fan of his, but he just has terrible luckwith things somehow. Whenever most of these makes amistake, it's always with regards to portals and the same thing happenedthis time he had a horrible pitstop. I think one of the tiles was stuck. Itwasn't coming over fine yeah. Then he was a tatooing in the race either, butit I just feel sad for it because he's the one who takes it all yeah. That's right! I cannot be goodfor his mental state. I mean in imposes in the post race when I asked how wasthe how was the day today his merciless one, so I mean obviouslyshould have been happy, but he was like well, it was an Okata. We could have done better. We didn'thave the right strategies for me and to think of it. He came in third, it's notlike he came in fourteen or something he came in third, and he looked as ifhe was he was dead. Last on the now, he missed her on his chance right, likesince the past two years he's had this event winning strategy for thechampionship where evens the first reason then he doesn't, but this timehe's not on the first play, so he doesn't know what's going to happenwith him through the season. I think I think that's the ultimatemind game that he's trying to play with a Milton. So let's see what happens this year and I think at that point Alonso hadsome issues. I think he had some something some Debe stuck in his rarebreaked up to something like that, and that was causing some heating issuesfor breaks and yeah. He pretty much had to come out with a statement of whatactually was wrong, because I never know what happened with him: Yep Yep,they twittered it out talking about this, that they had somedepict. Where did you? Where did you pick it up, though? I don't know, Ithink there were a couple of incidents...

...that happened right, I think, withghastly and stuff. So there was like pieces of carbon fiber lying aroundhere and there- and I think we have talked about this earlier some timethese these pieces are pretty much like short yeah, and you know it cutsthrough anything and yeah. So once it's like lodged inside it's not somethingthat you know you could just pit and some some mechanic just puts his handin then pulls it out. It's like really stuck there so yeah, and then there were revenges happeningwith the other veteran to red, like what he ended up, hitting o Kan on the air and pulling off aclassic wit, and so I mean nothing out of the Orde, nothing out of theordinary but yeah. What to the other legend,also doing something similar yeah. It pains me, it pains me every time whenbattle does a spin, I mean he's a great driver, but I think the past two years,especially at Frari, has somehow you know broken his confidence entirely.That's where it feels to me. He doesn't. He doesn't seem like the old wetireknew back in red pool anymore yeah. I mean I hope he gets converted tosomething similar like Riken in and then all we sort of want is him. Do notleave this port, it's just fun. Seeing him on that drag and then you can dowhatever you and keep spinning every ray so that we are waiting or actuallywe can gamble, which lap do you think he's gonna, spin and put money on it. Yeah there, it is forget, was to bethis. Is the new was pepe right, an give him is on ticket and yeah. Thissounds like Rale, but yeah I mean besides this fun, we were towards the end of the race.Last ten laps, I would probly say was- was the most exciting in terms of whatwas happening in the front of the pack yeah. I want to call it. I don't wantto overshadow whatever happened throughout the race, but this sort ofwas the main event nail biter to the end yeah. When was the last time youremember that the second position finished within one second of one I do,and then it was, it's always been. Whoever I mean not always ham it. Therehave been other winners but like whoever is its being it's sort of justbeing a bullet ahead. I clar wite yeah, that's right and that this was you knowwithout an Itian, an IGANS happening towards the end of the race it itwasn't like. You know, there was some safety card that came out just towardsthe end, which you know kind of compressed the pack. This was just onpure peace that Hamilton and woosuen work, coiner yeah. The only dramafactor in this point was FIA right. Er, Oh man, don't get me Sartine about that?Oh you know what I feel this is just the right time to talk about talk about.The S do yeah, I think yeah. This is this is my time to yeah sorty guys you are in for it so yeah, I think basically Hamilton andwas stopped and were going at it and was tapping was really gaining on toHamilton and he reached into the de other strange of, and he basically hadthat slight advantage in terms of having his darts open and having thattwenty miles per ar advantage over Hamilton and he was able to get close to him and almost overtookhim at turn, for and but while trunk to that he went off the track and right after thathe got already or message seeing that you know you have to yield the positionback to back to Hamilton because you went offthe track and you cannot gain an advantage by going off the track. Soyeah you have to yield to me. That was all the more frustrating because a Idon't want to see Hamilton on the podium. Let's, let's just put it, I mean he's sure a nice driver, BlahBlah Blah, but but he's a sore loser as many of the drivers have send it ontheir track as well. Any time he sort of so yeah I was just happy Max, waswinning and to see the Oh yeah, but as soon as that, radio message came in aslike. This is just favoritism at its best playing along because Hamilton'sdone this throughout the race and as soon as Max getting an advantage interms of a position. Yes, but I I doing...

...it what what was it like? Twenty ninethirty times throughout the race? That also adds to advantage. Oh Yeah, certainly I mean in a sportlike f one where, like every millie second counts, doing something thatbegins. You even like you know, hundredth of a second twenty nine times.Gins you a lot of a lot of time. So yeah I mean I feel the blame. majorlylies solely on everyday. For the degree because they keep these weird rules andthese weird ambiguity, which leaves this you know, leaves the door open for suchthings to happen like, let me tell you like in detail what the exact rule wasand what the issue was so basically Michael Massey who's, rice director,like during the during the drivers, debrief thathappens before before the race. He informed the drivers that turn for will not be monitored for forlike track limits, and you would not be penalized as long as you don't gain anadvantage by going off the of the track. But hus your you know lies the issuethat, when you say something like gain an advantage, this is this is a verysubjective terminology. You know you, you have to put very definitive ruleshere and very definite to be say what does gaining an advantage, exactly meanit, because what is getting in that vantage? Is it overtaking while you'reoutside the track? Is it just going outside the track lot of the lap togain that slight hunted of a second which adds up and eventually, like youknow, adds up in the whole race yeah and I mean not to be little the teams, but these these folks are literally lookingfor every milly second of opportunity that they can get sort of bend. Thoserules and you know, exploit the wordings and your bang on I mean whenyou, when you say in even more ambiguous statement. What did youexpect? I? Obviously the teams are going to go head and see how can theycapitalize on exploiting it right and yeah? I mean these teams are multimillion dollar businesses at the end of the e. They are going to try and findevery single loophole that they can find it. It is the responsibility ofMie to ensure that these loopholes don't exist in the first place and themost weird thing about it was that okay, it's fine. They decided on this rule,but MIDRE. If you notice Hamilton got this radio message saying that hey you have been going over, you knowgoing outside the track for a couple of laps now and we are instructed to tellyou that you can't do it in the more otherwise. You would get the black andwhite flag and if you continue to do it, you'll get a penalty right after thatand that, basically, I think, was a result of red bill complaining to tothe stewards, because they noticed that Hamilton was consistently going off thetrack and yeah I mean just changing rules, while the race is going on thatjust doesn't make sense to me at all yeah and I wouldn't be surprised ifChristian owner WHO's, that team principle for red bill goes off just tochew on FIS years. To make a point, because you know hey, this was Max iswin. If you know the MT wasn't there to begin with, I might certainly feel mix could haverapped up at p one, but this is the first race of the season. I don't thinkthey're going to go too much at it, but nonetheless knowing question on or theway he's he is in terms of being aggressive on on the management side. Ithink he's going to go back and chew on Fi is. Is this this particular term that I I'veseen? A lot of people refer question harder as which is a shit toto andthat's exactly what he is. He is always there to like. You know, add that dramainto things and make sure that you know he's he's an agent of Kiya A and a topic for a different episode,but drive to survive. Right Netflix is a Formula One show they've seen they'vethey've shown Christian in a similar fashion, where they've time and againshown in episodes where you see him being that aggressive and you know morethan aggressive. I see it as a good leader manager for your name, becausehe tries to find every opportunity to put his system on the top one way oranother Yep Yep. That's right! Yeah I mean yeah, I it's. He is alwaysportrait that way and I from all the...

...interviews that I've seen andeverything I've that's my impression as well that he is,you know a great great leader in that sense, becausehe's he's not afraid of you know putting his thoughts out there at all,coming back to our topic at hand, so yeah, I feel that this in a way kindof ruined the race a little for me, even though I mean I'm not complainingabout the race, it was spectacular. It had everything that I wanted, but youknow in a sport like if one were the slightest moment that you have canchange every single thing in the race, these external factors when theyinterfered with the racing. Somehow you know sucks the joy out of it for me andit just leaves a bad taste in your mouth, and I don't know I don't understandwhat is a fire trying to achieve by keeping the these ambiguous rules. For me, honestly, it feels like they onpurpose, leave this ambiguity so that they can bend the rule to the narrativethat they want to push. I cases in that's right, exactly yeah, so for Ye. That was exactly what I wanted to get no for me. It was also one of thosenames right like the table, flipping names and as soon as the checker flywas out there as like. Why I mean I was all I was so close tohaving my perfect Sunday race. They Hambleton crosses the line. If I ambacking him, I mean not literally making him but like it with theirdiscussions. We are having it like sort of backing him well, at the end of the day, at the redwill, at least Max was happy with the race so and it's the first race of theseason I mean we'll, see we'll see how it on for all. We know for sure that, where the battle between red wool andMarcites is going to go on throughout the season and we're gonna and we'regoing to continue seeing that fight for position, one or thing that I noticedwas when, when Hambert won the rees- andthey showed Tota, Wolf who's, basically the principal for Mercedes when theyshowed toto wolf and the joy that was on his face every single time till now,when I have seen toto after the race, he has, I mean you know, he's notexcited to anything like it's become a common thing for them to win and mostof the time they're. Winning you know by twenty second, and for today, itfelt like most of the s did own the win in the sense that they themselves donot expect to win this race. To be honest, they knew that red bull is afaster car on track and it really felt like yeah. He felt like he earned it so yeahit was overall, it was a great race just that Fi were party pooper anddoing him a little. But overall it is a great race and I think everybody enjoyed it, includingHamilton, because if you saw Hamilton in the post race interview that he was,he was so happy. I mean He. Obviously he won the race, so he is happy, but Ithink after a long time he had to really fight for it. He had to give ineverything that he had. I think something similar to what he had to doin Turkey last year, where yeah he will have to be at his hundred person to theyeah there was that a radio message from him as a we leave it up to me, andI mean he delivered so uh shortly after that. Actually I heard aradio message on worse a in radio. Well, they basically told him. They told himthat you know. If you need anything, let us know otherwise. You are on yourown, like we're not going to disturb any more any. who were all. I think we're sayingit's it's an amazing race in an definitely it is all I hope from forrace, one of a brand new season with legends and amazing races and amazingthemes in the race good battle on the top. Although againI don't know if I can say it in no, but I would have hoped to see a differentodium result. Ham Word, port at teas old this time any who berea. Besides the FIA thing. Ithink it was. It was an amazing weekend who strode out as the driver of the dayfor you, Sarah...

...for me, for me, I think it would be wastopping. I I was a little confused betweenHammerton and was Tappin, but I think at the end of the day I am a bigger fanof was stopping Maham, so I'm going to give it to him so yeah so what's happened. I think he he did everything right that he coulddo honestly spear. He a lot of people did kind ofcriticize him for doing that. Move on the outside. On Turn Ford By. I don'tblame her. No, no yeah! I agree. You know, as San had said, if you rememberit, that if you don't go for that gap, you're, not a rastriven any more. Infact I feel like that was that was a perfect thing to do. I mean crude to him for even doing it in thesense, like he's up against a seven time, world champion way moreexperience. Niver he's his way younger than him and the way he's pushinganother legend is just just so amazing to see Oh yeah and like for sure, like he, hewas as well a hundred percent in the race. He was pushing as hard as hecould and he's met sort so much and yeah I've. I have no words like when Istarted watching or one and when you know was tapping came in and you knowthere was this buzz all around when he had came, and you know he had come intoa fun, and at that point I was not super impressed, but over the yearsI've seen her mature I've seen him, you know become a little less hot headed but atthe same time maintaining the aggression, that's required and yeah. Ithink he probably really deserve the win. I wouldn't say that Hamilton doesn'treserve the win or anything, but if, if the viewer turn for thingsdidn't happen, I think that would had probably was stopping. We had come outbetter at the end of the race yeah. So what about you? As for who would beyour driver of the day for today, driver number two has always had thiscurse of red bulwer. You know it's a sense. What one two years, it's justbeen sad to see, what's been happening with driver to when it's all been Maxat that team, but ten to see Peres a curus to him, because coming intothis team knew the way he came almost at the edge of the seat towards the endof the year, not knowing, if he's going to be there not having the car that he would havehoped and to that matter, not not knowing if he is even going to race inhis first race right with the the pre, the formation live issues, and then hecomes in and starts from Brittle and finishes what all the way at p five. Ithink yeap five just is splendid drive from him. I'mdefinitely sure Christian's going to be happy to see both the drivers nowbattling hard, where I can now probably hope Perez is going to give that toughfight on the top along. It was stepping so yeah yeah. I mean Yeah Great Job Apperis, Imean starting twenty eigth, basically from pit lane and then coming in fifthis commendable, I mean and that basically he won the driver of the day,even in the Rasas. Well right so yeah that did bias my decision, but then I could er to him code in right. Oneone special shout out that I wanted to give was for Lando because he writ anexcel in shop. Today I mean he drove a very good race and came and forth right.I think yeah and yeah. He got the edge over Ricardo and he started the raceand he maintained that throughout the race. He I didn't see him much, exceptfor the fight that he had with Charles. I didn't see him much on the tract, butI think sometimes not as good as well, because you know just keeping your headdown putting in consistent laps that that gains your results. So, inwhich case what was their team for the day for you, so I think the team of the day, for meprobably is Red Bull Yeah. I mean they executed everything perfectly. They hadamazing Petcha. They have an amazing pit, clew and yeah. They delivered andStrategy Wise. Did it everything right, not many issues with the car, exceptfor the one that Paris had and overall, I think, Grandville God, both theirteams. I mean both their drivers finishing ingood positions, be to for war, appen and p five for Paris soyeah. Theygained quite a bit of points and yeah.

I think red will really shined in thisrace. For me, what about you fore? Alfatar? It will be team. We didn't see the results that we havehoped, but for me I think the way they they shun was. You know the the goodening between the team and the drivers. The good compliment that you know therewas happening between the between the two to the fact that before gas la waswas out, he was contending for you know points in the top fire that a will. Wesaw a UK deliver on the car space. You know getting points in his in hisfirst race at f one so nowhere. I can see some good chemistry between thedrivers and between the drivers and the team, not the result. That would, I hope for,but I still think the teams you know done so good to be the team for the dayfor me, going going on the front side. Also,let's talk about the loser for the day. Let me let me start here. For me it isNikitas a pain. It was in a fun way. The case, although I had hoped to seegrocer number two in him, but I don't. I am I'm pretty sure, I'm going to seethat during the season which is just beginning. So for me he was, he came in as you know,someone who wanted to Bru something and was going to be aggressive on thattrack. Let's do this trying to push the car's limits, but not multiple times inqualifying. Let's do this during race and spun out again is like. Yes, youare the man, so I have fun with yeah for me. He'sthe loser of the day. Saran. Let's hear yours, okay, I think for me, because is Botas,because I mean he gave in third by Filicina he gave in third in the morecetis and he came in third with thirty seven seconds away from the first two Imean come on man. What, but, as I thought, I thought that firstrace was when do win, and this is not have you win? It's justterrible performance. He was nowhere near Hamilton throughoutthe race he never even caught into a battle withwas stopped in it's just shameful at this point, it'sgood for me, cities that they have a really good card, but otherwise thatsee would not be filled by Potus at this point of time for sure, if theydidn't have, you know, probably not the best card now, but the best car that they have had tillnow so yeah. I thus was the loser of the. I feel, like he's thinking he'sthe leader of Formula One point: Five that were one point, five begin yeah. I think I think so. So, basically,we have Hamilton and worse tape, Formula One then esoon towards theaviate. This is going to be a fun season, so I have a feeling a well folks overall, what the weekend ithas been besides all their hands, and you know all the cribbing that we'vedone. It was just a great weekend to see Formula One back on track and witha bang. This was this is an excellent banger resides again if I am playing for tyQoop. Nonetheless, this was an excellent weekend.
