    Sometimes i'm just into the drama between teams and drivers, car regs and shit like that. I watched qualifying and the race I don't need the recaps. Maybe thats to niche for a podcast idk...

    that’s a huge improvement. And still probably 1.5 seconds off the top pace of the 2019 title contenders.

    Still gonna be a long year for them I fear.

    Yep. The difference between them at the back of the pack and everyone else is so huge that 2021 complete redesign can't come fast enough.

    Did he pull out the wheel? That seems dangerous.

    I read that it straightens the wheels on straights to reduce wear

    I guess it’s on the driver to initiate? I doubt you want that wheel out if you want to block the guy with DRS behind you.

    Episode 2 is all Haas and Guenther

    Silverstone spoiler

    Guenther tells the two drivers to fuck off at the end after wrecking at Silverstone. He wants to fire them both then and there

    About halfway thru the new season...

    I'm conflicted because I don't want to be "that guy" whose favorites are also conveniently the best but my favorite principals are Horner and Toto and my favorite drivers are Lewis and Max.

    Also, I had no idea Christian Horner was married to ginger spice.

    Just want to say I hope Haas has a better year because Gunter is amazing.

    Everyone (drivers, engineers, executives) involved with Williams seems like legitimately nice people. They've got such great history too. I hope they can at least be competitive with someone this year. Guessing their best chance is with the new 2021 car though.

    I don't know why they wouldn't do the customer parts deal for a year or two while they reset their R&D. They just got it wrong a couple years back and now they spending so much resources trying just to get back to square one.

    So Ferrari was probably cheating but they couldn’t truly prove it so they settled.

    Ferrari was low on pace during the winter testing so they probably have stopped whatever gave them the horse power advantage last year.

    Daniel walks a fine line of being funny and cool to annoying and bitchy.

    The Renault boss is just a cock sucker. Makes you want to root against him and the team. They did Hulkenburg wrong and he deserved better. The jab about not being on a podium when he came to a 9th place team was low and bullshit

    I wish they went deeper on how the two cars are different. Daniel also mentioned how different the Renault was way different from the Red Bull.

    I wish this F1 PlayStation game wasn’t so fucking hard to play. If I nudge someone I get a warning or a penalty but I get run off the track regularly.

    Watched Season 1 and 2 of the show, then downloaded the game. Have no clue about F1 but think I'm going to start watching this year.

    Really liked Albon after watching the show.

    Albon is a young, up and comer so definitely a good time to start being a fan of his. You'll have to be ok with him living in Max's shadow though because as long as they're both with Red Bull he always will be.

    As long as you're not a Lance Stroll fan it's cool with me.

    Nico will get the last laugh. His F1 career will be infinitely longer than Cyril's. Cyril will end up on a Renault car lot in the French equivalent of Alabama.

    Bulworth Obscenity?

    Christian has to be the worst bullshitter in the paddock. He's been talking about "there's no #1 or #2 at Red Bull" for years but he fucked Webber and he's going to fuck Albon because he's going to protect his #1 driver.

    This is me. Enjoyed Albon's story and parts of it really hit close to home for me. He's definitely who I'll be following this year.
