Intro: Howling (Sting) - Gunnar Olsen

Outro: Your Intro by Audionautix 

I think in one of the interviews Nuda himself was surprised that. How did he get it? Fo Yeah, I'm yes, like Mane, have tried really bad to fuck this up. How am I getting this? It's this easy? Oh my God, Hello, folks, welcome back to another episode with us at F Fun Fan Fiction. We are your hosts. I am a Kash and I'm Sarten. And before we get started, first of all, thank you for all the love on our previous episode, the fireside chat with other theaport tail. You know what, personally, I think it is one of our, both of ours, favorite episode to both record, edit and listen to, and it's been so much joy to have you guys reach out to us and, you know, share this across your friends and everyone. So thank you for all the love. We promised to keep bringing such episodes again. On to this week. Oh my God, what a thrilling race towards the end of today, a battle of hundred verses. First, Sarah, I'm see again, I'm going out of words. Are and take it away, man. Yeah, it's crazy right, like I it is so funny, like hundred the first like it's so insane, like in on one hand, you have, I mean not a rookie anymore, but like his third year in F one, but still relatively a rookie. And the other guy, you know, who's basically seventh time world champion, Louise Hamilton, you know. Yeah, so, yeah, I mean, wow, Kudos to lando, but last he was not able to win the race. But still I feel that whatever he achieved today was something you should be proud about and he'll soon be there. Wins definitely coming when and a championship with is also definitely coming. He has what it takes to to win these two to put that pressure on. We'res failing game or is in front of him. It just wasn't his last four laps. That's that's where it's a yeah, it was his day, it was his weekend. Is just it just wasn't his last four laps. Yep, Yep, Yep, I think. Yeah, I had. I was fairly confident that he would win the race, you know, except for what happened with the rain. But yeah, the way he had maintained the lead throughout, not throughout the race, but like once he got from science, after that he pretty much was in command of the lead and he was debating the race. He was Deta dictating the peace of the race as well. I think just towards the end we had that Hamilton had reached him, but that also was because the track was getting slickered and yeah, it was getting better. So, yeah, start for him. But yeah, Kudos to Hamilton for that, I must say, because capitalizing on the situation. Yeah, would like exactly, and that's exactly what his strengths are. Right, like, even on bad days he has a good day. This is, I think, the perfect example of it. Right, like he had a poor start. He, yeah, was stuck behind Accoud of for pretty much throughout the years. He was going nowhere, and then, even in a bad day, he had a great day. Right, wins with be what exactly right. But I want to, you know, take this moment to sort of use, to use the whole conversations that that's been happening. So there's the Internet stone and you know, on one side saying that Lando should have feated. You can see Hamilton Pate.

Why don't you pit? So hindsight, hindsight, hindsight, conversations here. Let me, let me give you my take on this, and then and then sorry, and I want to hear what you say. Okay, so my thing on the whole thing is sure, in hindsight right now it looks like Lando should have pitted, he should have done this and he should have done that. But, and there are multiple tweets are on this as well. So what if, right he first of all your read you're about to win your first ever gropery. Behind you you have a knighted seven time world Champai trying to guns hundredth win. So he's exactually pumped up about this. And you know, the conditions are such that you never know what's happening behind you. So what if you do pit and the rain doesn't progress as as it did and worch case, it stops, like the wind changes and your rops and now you look like a fool, like the WHO? Am Pretty sure the whole Internet is going to go. He should not have pitted. Why did he go against his engineers? Like he should have taken the yeah, so it's all hindsight. Hindsight, I just feel like he took the right decision for himself that he thought was the best in that scenario. It didn't work out, so man heartbroken. But yeah, that's that's might tay. What's yours? Yeah, I mean I feel for him. You know, I do kind of agree with you that hindsight is always two thousand and twenty. But but at the same time I feel that this is what, you know, kind of distinguishes Hamilton from Lando. Total listens that, you know, we have seen Hamilton time in again, disagree with Bono and straight up saying no to any team orders of fitting and things like that. But I think Lewis also knows when to listen to his as well, and I think this exactly was the moment where he kind of his experience helped him, where he knew that, you know, when his engineer is like third time on the radio, say yeah, yeah, come in. So he definitely is onto something. Yeah, he took advantage of it and obviously I do agree that Hamilton, being in the second position, always has the advantage of reacting to what Lando does. And Yeah, that's there. I do agree that Lando, you know, he had everything to lose at that point, so petting was definitely a, you know, very tough decision. But at the same time I think that he kind of also was in a similar situation as Lewis where, you know, his engineer was there literally the third time. Yeah, telling him that, you know, come in for a widgets and he's like no, shut up. So yeah, I think he considering how good McLaren have been recently in terms of their strategy, calls and everything, and how like competent Andrea sidel is, I think lander should had probably listen to his engineers. From that perspective. I mean, I can understand if it was better in Ferrari, you know, or Timmy at barrain. Shut up, I know what to do. But yeah, when I feel like so, post post race interviews, they were they were with the press, next to each other and then Louis Tells Lando, you didn't want to go in, did you, and he says no, I did not, and and immediately do is goes me too, even I didn't want to go in, as like he's right there. I don't want to come in right but I think that's that's the experience versus, you know, first time trying to do this. It's sad, but it's the you learn out of it. I'm pretty sure exactly. Yeah, I'm pretty sure yesterday was a very shitty night for Lando. But the type of a person he is he's...

...taking so many learnings out of this. So yeah, I think, I think definitely this is a like a investment in his career in the sense that, like, he lost some today, but I think he gained a valuable lesson which will win him a lot more races in the future. So I think he's gonna be collecting his compound interest soon, I guess. I mean it's over you like, if you notice, like the last two races or the last two weekends as a package have been just too good for my Clarens. It's been back to back brilliant weekends, both those drivers, even Ricardo putting that pressure on on Hamilton. Sure, his pit stop was a bit messed up, but what a brilliant weekend for both of them. Yeah, definitely. Ricardo is, I think, really getting comfortable in the car now because, yeah, earlier on we saw that how uncomfortable he seemed, and I think he also mentioned in this in a couple of interviews that, you know, after the summer break he basically got a reset mentally speaking as well, and I think that really helped him and it goes to show that even these athletes are who are pretty much the top of their sport. You know, they're literally the top twenty drivers in the sport, almost, you could say with an astrict but but yeah, like for most of them they are pretty much the top. And even they are vulnerable to, you know, mental health issues, and I think I think it's great that these days more of these younger drivers had more open to talk about those. Yes, even George Russell, I have like seen a lot of times in tweeting about it, and even, I think Lewis also talks about it a lot these days, and I think it's pretty good that people are talking about it more. And Yeah, I think everybody is kind of alorable to but yeah, great that were regardless out of that slump now, yea, yea. And I mean it's sort of been like a balance of equilibrium in terms of McLaren versus mercedies, because mercedies is not having it good. I mean sure, they want a race yesterday, but overall it wasn't it wasn't a complete good package for them. Right, like they butchered their own qualifying right, like Lewis was for yeah, right, like he was four then Bothas was fair on the game, a place where they're usually one to the other. Cars have gotten faster or they are not doing well in terms of whatever it is. Lewis bumping into the pit wall while water was sometimes, I think, you don't have a good race start. As you mentioned, was struck behind with Cardo, but at the end certain deputy did Wayne, although just for Lewis. Both as was still I don't know what was happening with it. Oh my word, Guy, I think, McLaren, they pretty much sor yeah, I mean must be pretty much. You know, every meeting they decide how are you going to drag us today? And that's what they decided, that let's give him another. I think, like, what does is like? Man, I already have engine. You know, wasn't the same reason why he why he went to the end of the pits last rays or last last race? Yea, yeah, exactly. That's exactly why did they charge this power unity. Yeah, so what they claim is that we want to extra engines to, you know, finish the last one third of the races. I I probably am with the Illuminati on this one, where I feel like he was he was probably put all the way back just to block Max was stepping off. And what a defending he's done. Brilliant. Yeah, that was. You know what I saw? I saw footage of a Bot Ass Max and Peter is walking by before the race and like this, I think posted on credit. People were talking about that. Yeah, these these...

...guys basically colluded and Buddhas was like, Hey, I'm not going to block you, just just go by. You know, they're Tuck. Well, I'll try, Oh man, but that does yeah, I mean even the commentators were like he could have done a better job, and I'm like, stress on the world. Could did he want to? Yeah, yeah, that's that's we're gonna come when I'm saying I want to come back to your words too. Week notice, this is, this is exactly what to we notices exactly, but yeah, still brilliant. Drive about aside like it's yeah, like he would be nowhere and then the rain again just pleaded into his hands. something. He gained some nine positions from lap. Well, it forty eight where, yeah, started. Yeah, he was. He was out of the point. He was he was way down like whatever, like three, fourteen something. Eventually ended up be five. So that's that's teller. Somehow that reminds me. I saw this. I saw the othern meme where it's like, you know that that same old meme of a parent who building the kid just saving from drowning, someone almost bounding and someone's gone there right. So so it's like holding off Lando missing out on his first win, someone almost drowning. The topic there is Louis is hundred t win and then someone who's drowned. Is like two races back to back. I start from twenty and finishing top five both as toddy. Last race he finished twenty, two three. This racy finished nineteen or eighteen to fifty. You know what I get it? I get it. He has selected the hardest mood in the difficulty setting. He's following the press route of the finishing. He's like, I'm not winning any races the season anyways, so let me try it from the back. You know, I might just regret exactly. I just forget that. I'm lucky, you know, because it looks like it's a mercedies Oh man, oh man, but it was. It was a fun weekend for boat as having mercedies had fun dragging him and he had fun counter ragging mercedies back up. But but that overtake on on manks just just makes me think Max had a very weird win yesterday. Could I mean podium? Yeah, I mean it's too yeah, close to a win, but it's weird. Podium missed at him and what does he p nine or something, pate pseven or something. At lap he said he had given up on himself. We had given upon him, and I don't know what I would like. Towards the end, suddenly, like I was obviously engrossed in, you know, orlandos's. Yeah, I wasn't paying attention when maxis and then suddenly after you know, once we saw land was just completely lost it and wasn't able to drive pretty much at all. He was pretty much swimming at point, I guess. And all of a sudden I see Max at number two. Like me, what, what's going on there? Right, right, what was that? And and not that he was he was struggling towards the start, at least. I mean he had a good start. He was he was trying to plow through the field, which he was. He over took boat as, Oh, which it reminds me. So there's this moment right like where there was ghastly boat as and Max and Max over takes boat as. Both text is charging on to bags, this cheeky message to Pierre. Yeah, who was it actually? Was It is injured? Or...

...was it just delicately Dr Marco? You know, who knows that thing. It could have been who knows. Who knows when, but that is an interesting message for context. I mean, if you missed this, you know. So what happened was someone came, someone came on to gastly's radio and just told him in coded cryptic words that boat as is catching up on Max behind you, and that's what they left it. That's what they left it. It's up to you what you do with that information. Your future may or may not be at stake. Exactly. Yeah, I think that's that's pretty much understood by now that you know red bull is a red bill and Al Faur. You are one team, you could say, because, honestly speaking, great like both the drivers of both the teams, like the second drivers, don't really perform at all. So, I mean you have got pairs with which you know. I don't know what he does, but is there too? Right, yeah, exactly. And so I don't even know where Sudi is. What happened to today? Where said Max, he beat kiss them as a billow I think in one of the interviews Nuda himself was surprised that. How did he get it? Yeah, yes, like man, have tried really bad to fuck this up. How am I getting this? It's this easy? Oh my God. And since then he's been finishing post P fifteen yeplay read to try this harder, but for a seriously, when I feel like he's just he's just there with tell cell because red will need some money for engine next year. Yeah, and then he'd be a bye bye once they've got he's exactly like me. He comes into work, it punches his car and waits for the Sunday. That's that's pretty much it. And and one of those weekend it'll be like bring your kids to work. So he'll just get his son along, like play exactly. I mean I genuinely had hopes on a very, on a slightly serious note, having nothing get serious here, but like on a slightly serious note, I had hopes from him yesterday. Two reasons. Because he was up there. I mean he was trying, he was being praised by not going into the pits and leading the race for a few laps. Right, so he was up there. I thought he'd be the vote as to Max by being that to hammered. I was like, okay, there'll be something there. And secondly, it was a damned wet track sort of thing and he's good. He's good at such scenarios. Definitely sure. I'm hoping something out of press, but I guess. Yeah, he just went home. Yeah, okay, yeah, went I don't know what it is with that second seated. It's just cursed typing. That's it. Like, you know, I think Ricardo did some weird you do match for leaving. You know, I mean I want to want to now see sort of like two reactions, if we could. One is Alonzo's on those gptwo like I want to just I want to have the camera on Alonzo's face and then like him watching his own clip gpto engine. This, this is a piece of shit, like that thing, and to Ricardo, like Cameraon Ricardo and be like what do you think about red bull now as the second driver there? Yeah, and I wouldn't be surprised because, see, I want to let's bring this up siden right,...

...like we both agree this to this that someone at, I don't like a Fun Sky Sports or FIA, or at someone somewhere they've hired an intern whose job is to listen to a fun podcast, because we've had multiple coincidences where we said something and that's that's gone on to become something. Yeah, yeah, definitely. I think just couple episodes ago, if I'm not wrong, I think you were talking about that these guys should kind of have a rotating panel of commentators, right, and that's exactly what happened. Right to today's race. Was Pretty much that. I mean we saw calon drop by. I think there's somebody else as well. I do. I don't exactly recoll, but I I mean obviously I was really busy watching the race today and I didn't have time to listen to the commentators. It seem. WHOs walking what right, but I definitely saw that there's this is rotating panel of communters which is actually really good. I'm kind of glad about that. I was board listening to those two idiots for the whole years. So to that person who's listening to us on the other end, yeah, why don't you get us these shots? Like ask Alonzo? What does he think now about McLaren? And Ask recard? What does he think now about that second seat? Well, at least fie. I don't know whether they're listening to us or not, but I better hope that they start listening to themselves, because another thing I kind of saw, which is weird today was, if you notice, that Lando did a very weird thing on even a dangerous thing. You could see at the pit lane where he went out and went back in, HMM, and he was he was summoned to the stewards, but it not really given a penalty. I don't know what's going on. I because winders, not Max yeah, or even Hamilton. Actually, yeah, Hamilton was given a penalty right, I think last year in Turkey or somewhere. I don't recall. But yeah, yeah, I mean to be honest, I need to go back and see what lap it was because I forget the lap number. But IFI is justification and from what at least I've heard, is track conditions weren't as as what's the word that I'm looking for? Track conditions weren't as safe. You know, it was raining or whatever and that caused land or to do whatever he did. So the benefit of doubt was given to Lando because of track conditions and the weather conditions. But yeah, yeah, I mean I kind of do understand that. It also is like, you know, that poor fellow isn't really lost his base seven. Let's AKA give him the three place position penalty. So you are eleventh now. It's now, but I think they could it possibly, if not for this race, they could at least given him like a penalty point in the sense that the points that they get on the license. Yeah, I think that would had been fair enough, if not for a, you know, proper person penalty, but I think that he at least warranted some penalty points for that. anyways, just saying for a change it was so nice to not see marks and red bills on their TV for the youngest part of yeah, that's definitely true. I think after the qualification rate, like Ferrari, McLaren and Williams like on one hundred, two three, I was like what yours? This right, like last time this happened was some time in two thousand food. Yeah, yeah, I thought it was quite on pure peace. I mean agree that. I like there was some changains with Hamilton crashing into that...

...right. Well, you know, bodier than everything, but still it was pretty much on pure peace and wow, like that's something like all three of them brilliant drives. Unfortunately, Russell didn't get result as good as it, but still he did his best, I guess the Williams that he could. Yeah, and and you were telling me this before we started recording, right, like Sachi has a track is more favorable for slip streams, for those trades, because even those those turns are quite slip stream advantageous and I think, I think Russell lost it a bit there to all of that slip stream disadvantage on his side and advantage to the others, that that got on him. So yeah, I mean it would have been it would have been a golden weekend if even he would have been when, if even if he would have been able to convert this. But nonetheless, I guess like he tried his best. So no hopes laws there. But yeah, totally. When seeing seeing Ferrari, McLaren and Williams battle this out, because I had missed qualification because I was I was not I was doing something else and I wasn't able to see qualifying live and I saw the results before I saw the qualifying and I was like, Oh, I need to see what went down for this to help. I came back and I saw this and I was like, Whoa, this is pure pace, this is brilliant racing right and saying right. Yeah, yeah, I think Ferrari are doing so well this season. They are finally like making up for all the all the bad performance that they had last year and everything, and I think they're making gains in the engine department as well, signs especially. I think that was I mean, I love at all. I am a huge vital sign the braid, but signs is, I guess, perfect person that they needed. Right, yes, call like everybody calls them, and I think he quite smoothly, you know, gelled into the team rate and yeah, he's pretty much matching Charles and also beating him. I mean today clearly beat him and wow, what a drive. At a point he was leading the race. He putted early. He was obviously in a study behind, but took advantage of the rain and got himself again onto the podium. So yeah, yeah, are right. It doesn't feel like it's his first season with Ferrari, because this is the second time where I've seen him lash out, I mean in the adrenal in pom a race mode, not as an an anger more, but like lash out on his hors on the radio that, you know what, what the bullshit are you talking to me, sort of thing like, I think I don't remember the race, but but one of the races back they wanted him to come in and he was like no, I'm not coming in and he stuck out and that worked out well for him. And then yesterday he was winning. Landover the better of him, but he was he was up there. He had a good slipstream, good start, he was ahead. He pitted early, as you mentioned, and then was stuck up behind I think it was like pate or something, peace, seven, p eight, and then his engineers or someone on the radio tells him we're targeting a top five position, and that just piece. Is it like with the fucking I was leading the race, just some laughs back and you. It's like the drivers have gotten their a game, but for our needs to bring there, for our game to do the yeah, yeah, that's, you know, the trademark line of next year that fast fans follow. Hey, but I'm happy with Ferrari weekend. I'm sitting in and in a virtual Ferrari for for this recording. Sir. Yeah, yeah, yeah, but for Iris be...

...team's got some issues. What do the hell is happening with Geo? Yesterday, no radio for GEWEL. I mean, wow, right, like go race, we don't care what happens to you. I think. Is this how they fire him? Like just cut off his radio and like just leave him out and not even tell him whether it's contract. is getting the mud done that rate? It's yeah, I don't know what meaning. With Alpha, I mean honestly, because just couple years ago rate I mean Alpha, which is just by name. Very honestly, it's basically sober, which the real team is, and I think two thousand and eighteen they were, I think, best among all of these last teams, right, and they just have fallen through the ranks in the last couple of years. No matter what. They never have a good day, they never have a surprise result. The best result they get is like the eight I guess which came we got today. And Yeah, I don't know what's going on. Ottmar still still running the ship. Right for Alpha, I forgot to do it. I don't know. I think it's not out Maritz, Frederick West, Youre, I think. Who? Okay, was the former team principle of tons at some point? I think so but I could be okay, yeah, but he's a fun guy, he's he's, you actually a good guy. But I don't know what's wrong, like something somewhere is not right in there. You know, I think that Second D also being contested quite a lot. Right like this meeneer's not going to contract Ted. I'm pretty sure I might be pronouncing this wrong, so sorry, folks. To begin with, but grand use zoo from China, who's with ftwo right now, he's contesting for the seat. I mean China's probably or much in do yeah, two or twenty or something like. It's an even twenty million dollars. We I had something something crazy like that. There's also contest from someone from South Africa, is what I heard. I forget was the driver from south of really, but yeah, there's some. Basically it's a bidding. What happening for the second seat? And for Geo, someone's put in a request to the Italian government to hell. Yeah, I heard, I see. So I feel like it's all that cashus king sort of politics that's happening for the second sea it is for probably putting some pressure on the team and the driver, Kimmy's just there for fun. Weekends. I'm my theory. I'm sure about it. It is right that he was feaking it. He didn't have cold. He was just doing a preretirement party, I guess, because he gave an eighth all of a sudden. He's not from he's not recovering from anything. That's really clear. He was just fit as a fiddiliar and strolls with kimmey ye, talking about s true. Oh yeah, it's cruel doing with retill. I think Daddy's Daddy's car seat. So I want no but honestly, I think he's been having a good weekend. I think like this weekend, and I'm not just the weekend. I think we've said this in the previous episode and the previous episode to that too. Strolls definitely finding some more you are found is more jo and he's pushing the car. Yesterday was just him being a bit on the nasty side and a bit cheeky, trying to push wettle into that wall. Shouldn't have done that. But yeah, strollers being stroll yeah, I think this yours. Somehow it seems a little weird to me because every year stroll, like you know, does have this one brillon...

...performance at least once in the season, but as so far he's just feel to impress. I think metal has had the best of him for most of the season, I guess. And Yeah, by the way, again, I don't know if you noticed not, but wet will is now holding the most number of overtakes in the season, which is pretty awesome. And Yeah, Lands, I don't know he he was doing well actually today through the race, but I guess after the crash with wetill, yeah, I think it didn't go well and obviously whiles well, turned up twelve. So overallok, poor day for using right right. Just st of fun, I'm looking at some stat of stroll versus mettle in two thousand and twenty one. They I mean championship wise, metals sitting at twelve, lances at thirteen, and then best race, whetles, obviously gotten that, podium Lances at seven. Both have had equal DNFS. But yeah, I mean a the number of overtakes that, as we mentioned, metals sitting on the top and two podiums. One that was taken away from him. Okay, sure, yeah, but the two podiums that he's had right, so we'll showing his veteranship YEP, they're there as well. Yep, Ye, wettings, right, alans. What was he doing, folks, folks, I guarantee you, these are not scripted transitions. I don't know how this is happening. Yeah, what the hell, like everybody saw and the commentator said, this is well that. You know, he was doing this practice run through the bollards, rate and turn to escape rout and that exerctly what he did in the love, first love already just went for it, like I was. I was watching this and right, like I told to myself, like I'm pretty sure he's not going to even attempt a turn. He's gonna go and gun for it. And then they show the the top helicopter shot and you can you can see he positions his cars so well that no one can in question him, because he it might look like he's gonna run into someone, so like, but he just goes straight heat. I don't think any break until he reached the the bad yes, to to curve his way didn't seem like a like. I think he just gurted the boundaries, you know, so beautifully off. You know, the yeah, just the Bra area right in general, like he was right in there, you know, just so that you know he gave. In fact, he gave two places after nothing. He gained food and then gave two places. And then right. I think somebody even asked Michael Mass about it, but he said that since he gave that positions and he didn't actually gain time as such. Right from that perspective, they didn't been realizing. And again lap one turned to but that was really cheeky and smart. Once I guess he he had a good start, so he was everything already up by one or two positions, as you already doesn't yeah, I mean he's good at it, right. And then post that he gained two more positions just by doing this. I was having a last and I was like, what is this guy? I love it. He was running brilliantly right, as we mentioned, like Max was obviously know was have not having a good time on a second stant here is I think soft snow mediums and alongs at that pointed over taken him as well. That's so again, like also was driving brilliantly at that point. He started six, came in six, so we're Kudos. I was actually waiting for a team radio message on Peres, because Perez was right in front of MAC's. I was waiting for a team orders switch right, and then they switch the camera as they strolled us on cameras to some fight happening somewhere else. Yeah,...

...and then Alonso, Swiss. I'm like, wait, where did it Alonso come from? What? What's happening with Alonso? Oh, talking about but rolled right. Action, Dude, was terrible today. I mean, yes, there are so many battles gone, so many buttons. was didn't so meanly, httle was the Charles like. We was seeing that battle on the side. Scream of yeah, Max's what do you call that? The Cockpit Camera. We was seeing the battle from his camera and they're not showing it on the wind and we're seeing some you know, Hamilton doing laughs. Yeah, I did that that first of all. Like httle charging down the field was just too brilliant to watch. But what was it like? Over over three or four corners, they going back and forth of each other. What a brilliant battle. That was awesome. I think at one point Max was probably looking at that battle and he was obviously pumped right. He was just cutting through the field and he was super pumped. He's like you just beating to pounds on it. I at one point there was, I think, almost like yeah, Aston Ratti, Bill Sandwich, you know, yeah, yeah, yes, yes, yeah, I he could have take I've been taken out there. I think that was a very riskying in general, very honestly, it felt to me like, for a change, was stopping. was in a you know, less pressure situation of a race today and he was more like just having fun and like, you know, I'm just going to go for it because, very honestly speaking, he he got the second position, but I feel he didn't actually manage this race very well because, to think about it, he started on hearts right and he chewed through his tires because why lap? I think twenty six or something. Yes, tires were gone. He was, isn't? Grant left us all like visible on the camera. I was exactly. And in the mean time, Lando and Hamilton other mediums and they're comfortably going into like the twenty eight lap or something. So obviously he was not not, you know, maintaining his tires correctly. He was having a poor time in his mediums as well. And Yeah, and then he just but however, just got the second mission. anyways, what was it talking again? Bettler versus Le Clare is where we were but out because Max was in the sandwich there. It would have ended to the race with the two of them. Three is. I'm still I'm still buzzing with the race. I don't know. Yeah, man, yesterday was and, to be honest, like the first twenty laps were dryers, like, okay, this is an okay race for this episode. I don't have much points to take. And then something happened. Okay, we can talk about this. And then the last five laps my brain exploded, man, as like I have this season. This season, to be honest, has just not disappointed like right, like one or two races here and there. But I feel like, and this is what I want to see next season two, when these cars get tighter, we see the amount of competition, overtakes, battles, rivalries for even like not just championship one and two, but you know, if if land would have won yesterday would have been he would have gotten so close to vote as in terms of points, and they were in good battle for pthree and Pfour, right. So it's yeah, the seasons shaping up really well. You know, something like of all the races Russia which has been touring Aus fuck race, you know, for the...

...past, yeah, many seasons, and in fact I think next year, on words, we're not coming to succio to do any more. I think we're going to the other one, ifs, but but basically, you know, everybody was rejoicing about that news that you're not getting coming back here, and then suddenly we have this, you mind blowing Greece today. Yeah, yeah, I think somebody's done things, but I hope it rains whenever if they do it, back in socially, because Souchi without rain is probably not as fun. Bring out the sprinklers. Oh yeah, ECCLESTON's is man. They should bring him some sometime back if we can still walk around and be somewhere and no where he is. Just have fun with in anyways. anyways, anyways, on that note, let's wrap it up here. This was this was a good chat, good episode. The race yesterday was brilliant again. I mean, if we fumbled our way throughout the episode anywhere, then folks, keep in mind you're still out of words for whatever has happened yesterday. Too many things to process, too many battles missed, probably for the guy who's listening to us from fe FIA. Let's get some good camera work done too. We will see you on the next episode. Until then, this is a fun fan fiction signing of a Bye.
