F1 2020 Rounds 1-3 Review & NBA Playoffs Predictions - Episode 40

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

New guest on the show Alexander Van Well aka Peanut joins Hamish to chat about the last 3 weeks of F1 racing and give a quick preview and predictions of the NBA prior to its' return.

Welke back to episode, forty of thehonoable potcast today I am joined by well, it's Alex, but nobody calls Nat.Everyone knows them Es. Paynnup, welcome, Tha, a they're, not ver good,be preaking yeah! It's been a pretty long timecoming. I think pretty stiff to have to wait to the fortieth episode. So todaywe well, I feel, like you and me, actuallyfollow strange range. Sports went on to your typical footy cricket, so ANA SPALL WE've both been fallingrecently because of the NETFLEX Sdrive to survive. Seriess yef one. So so we're going to review the firstthree races of the season and on the back of that we're going talk about theMBA. Well, I'm not that into it as Paino is, but we're going to talk aboutthe upcoming n BA resumption. I think it starts on the thirty first of Julyor something t also we'll talk to them. YEA expert himself Ha Egane, O tomorrow, actually inkvbeen pretty good. Oh really, I did see that on um the Google Ond the bsnsorfospractice Gan to simingsize so yeah. I think W for ther onw, just roll team byteam Um and we'll give each team a rating out of ten. And then, after thatwe might, you know, say who's been the worst Drivis, the best drivers and youknow so on and so forth, we'll roll in alphabetical order. So we'll start theAFOR Romain Rema, quite a Mei, might be oner Jimmy Ge yeah. So it's it's atough one to write, because I don't think they have the highest ofexpectation. But if you actually look at the overtakes, so their qualifyingposition compared to Thair finishing position, they're actually um doing well, there emer the highest ofany other team, so they seem to qualify. Well, I don't think they've made it outof the first qualifying session yet and every single race. Both drivershave bedded their qualifying position, which suggests that it's just theircard that just doesn't have the pace, O the teams and making movs at theirstool. I mean two points from Gos night, anthe Austio first one and then you know sitting around when is sen at fourainths fifteent coup, O Danes. I think in there I think it's they stay pretty under the rigd off andlisten back a points a little bit: Yeah magnicens and calalies and stuffitink, there's not too much to get foroe. Then at least they are moving upbut no threat to anhing. I think oe e MePush Intho top six stop fir. You see Marissa te B,Yeah a bitpulfulness ely Lo yeah rice last year you kno something up no way. I think there are y every tame withthat Ferrari. Engine seems to be Um, forming a lot slow, so they're,probably a casualty of that. I think that Um they can, I think, Carothemselves or looking at a beak, big graceet. I think they're mechanicallader or something came out son. They coan ever be big change up overall and start from square one, because theretheyve producin some pretty crummy causspecially on the stride. Yeh Pero E etotion running to each OHR,Yeah Yeah Alf as pretty lucky to be even ontwo points in that race. That Jo Andacy came.Ninth. I think there was six or seven retirements s, callthtwenty Drsyeah Atirasaye, in a coptook pointsI mean the'll, take it for sure in terms of a rating at a ten, it's atough one, because I dint think they really had any expectations of being adecent am so mean cmes. Just an ALTOM GTHERE hasn't produced too much oin tenon, a nois God birt. I think this bt, probably four or five'cause they are or even up in their qualties, so yeah I'll give them a six out of tenjust 'cause, like yeahthey're sitting in eight in thechammonship right now, which is probably about where we expected themto be a e wholso o the holefor.

They just needed a l bit moreinqualifying because like if they start halfying thirteen fifteenfourteent, then all all of a sudden and they keep moving up in the race asmuch as they have been. Well, then, all of a sudden they're up into the points just bit hard when you're qualifyingfrom the last row of the grid like starting the race from the lost rol thegrade Saturday at somebody non. They need o look at s Toeait, I caut the hotthin Ho we can do any cow, still n staing at do o? U Be thraning out soyeah re ight. So as you just suggestad Ou fatory is the next team red bullslike wwhat Cam. We call Feda Famos, Squa or whatever traind a yeah. How any point there on sevenpoints due to Ghasly liging out points in the first two races of Bemer Kibia picked up in the second race gasin the first, I think pretty steady month or three weeks forthem. Nothing really special gasly coming seventh, that's a pretty goodeffort, but GIV it. The fact that yeah, the midfield, like mclaran Renoracing point they're looking a lot faster this year, so Sevenh forAltatoris, pretty good effort, but once again it's probably mainlead Yue to allthe retirements and stuff in that race, but still soonseventh at of twelve orAteis al good at her yeah Ithin Coveya Meny, at that firstrace, gasly Dan, the only day, Neen, the last most recent rate, so maybe he's done apoint or two an how itis gone. But I think I' be pretty happy. I meanGazliit, a few saintand Secand race, relly, Hea, yeah and the retirement after what did hey call he qualified in tents,so ther had a been looking at another points: Finishe, but the retirement inthat race, Hur Sonethe, one words: kind of tough inethat anti ad the highest expectations. I think everyoracing point was going tobe a bit better than she reno mcclam Wer, probably going to improve andAlfatora probably Gong to be left behind in that pack. Sir iing Lif elonein the dust pretty well heaben still fough only fiv points behind Rao,but I think Rana is a lote. Better IMEAN, if ACON starts producing andrecind of holdomform theyre, looking pretty dacent to beest Yeah Theo eatlly yeah, they look along lay from Reno, sofor that raise and I'm GOINGTA give them five once again, not the highestexpectations going into the season, but they're probably not happy. She said how far away they are from therest of the teams. I don't think they're going to rea catching Renno orany of those m eteams anytime, soon so no ideal for them. I think they'll,probably just sat away, t expect to be exactly yeah, then that leds us into the prouncing horse is what they call Ferar: The jumping horses in ther we', bea Te,Ferari, probably one of the more disappointing son and disappointedteams. I definitely think they've had the worst three weeks of any team justbecause the lofty expectations that come with Ferrari they're, currently sitting. Fifth,thirteen points behind racing point: shothey driged in terms of theirdrivers, sharlss in seventh and Vetel, is intense, so very rare to see a Ferrari driv outsidethe top sex led alone, both or them Etar andthen were clared with hissecond. Even makes that look pretty generous to so yeah, that's absolutelycarrying e point, Saly whats that eighten points and that's actually theonly point shalls is go and veds picked up the nine. So I do at all I mean it's quiteentertining, actually sing ye Taig whaut they're, stick going to do ratherdominate wel'll be ha top for every year, so they are good to see if they canrecover what they do, but tether cars, jus Ot to screto ye the cars no grat. They also seem to notbe making the greatest decisions. On rast day like on the weekend. We sawCharles come out with soft ties and he basically just spent forty lapstrying to stop people from overtaking him and he ended up coming eleventh,which is just like anawkward enough to atten the financial budget of Ferrari.Tatas missing points overall crashing into each other, they're, not doing Sol an savors withthat car,...

...its omtanft Te Qt a second writin, theAr lityeatthey both took each other. Well,it it lookes kind of accidental 'cause, don't remember who took who abotsomeone took the lip and then got some man landed on the other, which isPretty Ra. Think clar was gone out inside thatal got squeezed on Winso bitstefe in a pack corner that still makeameror n pack o I wi for steside yeah in terms of writing. Out of ten R, probably just GOINTA give them onelike. I don't think they would be happy at all to besitting. I think they would be out of stomach sitting below messedes and redbullbut blow Maclaren en racing PLA. Thi that'd be happy at all sion pointwed, probably Doin Tiski yeah. So for that reason, I'l get thealone CEE, unlike the tans we've had before they have pretty highexpectation, aroe, O discappoint e sincur sure, probably Le Est. But H, I'd like to see Ma if be come back. Idon't Ar me some tag so foes yesh yeah, I like Charles who ses Ike, go black pive dog Isba, it's God from the days where I used todog Ricardo and mockwebter Yo're, really younger. When I now he's he's nooer ere time to be a pich, so yeah, and then that moves us into harshalso on that Ferrari engine that we've talked about, where they're coming second lost M anly,sitting ahead of Williams, because magnesin picked up a point on thewakend Um Ferosay, they had a pretty day an wecan compare to their normal expectations, not so much in terms ofpositions but like they were in the top ten, both their drivers for over halfthe Rad an I just lats fl out of Het ands, really yeah, but has to be said.I don't think Ete was really much to do with that car. I think it was just afluky decision to stay on a certain set, a tie, SHB pizeer, goin com. Nothingthere would have taken their chance to si ofranc o ti can sit there for as long as I can American yeah. So I guess theydid well and they worked well as a team, like Grojon did a bit of blockingalmost for Magnasen to stain that those points and at work they got their onepoint that they desired. So they are off the bottom of the table. Ronewaters like this par from that point, there's not reallytoo much to be happy about the first race. They both were tied, the secondrace. They came twelve and thirteenth, which I guess is not that badconsidering they qualified in twentieth and fifteen Respectev veso making moves,but no points to. I know the warl really, but I didn't Havey Supe disupponned, but Ithink thit's still pushing points. S that'll be a little little cut down andgot toany so far, yeah pretty pretty similar situationbetween hars and the Alpha Ramar like there not qualifying well in the racethey're doing all right, but Um yeah. They probably need to lift they'requalifying if they're going to try and aim and pick up a few more points which isalways hard to do mid season. OENE OP to the car overshowed by some of thoseother meet fiel teams like ricing Pointin,the Clain, and I definitely are s Tam e, an you taken priority of t thetalk, an the Mao ever these gaspet yeah y. That again I don't enow producemuch. I think manisine's a decent jave. Nothing special, I think, he's his sate still probably solid, but Ithink he's pobbly pushing towards enemies. He's time, on'no yeah, ahundred pretter stagnant Gros on an I said before the Porty wont having a Chwasn't the biggest fan of him, hes Bi he spot behind the rheeling lis anddefinitely sted an a pompysh stoys up at all. I think they just showed allhis crashes but ITU ve poeof, Lo t yeah Daes an beespecial Dana Tan, effersint sustint EH, exactly noin, nothing to ride homeabout there. In terms of writing at a ten, I gin the miss six just 'cause, Idinthing. As you alluded to early, I don't think they would have had thehighest expectations so kind of similar to arfalike Theyre Jusdoin, okay,pretty much exactly what we expected them to Todo. An six out of ten justJone Guts, nothing', Ponog and disappointing yeah so, like I can't say I'll, bewatching it when I'm watching on racewakeen Ba, I think they'll be alittle bit of a mitting battle for Eids 'cause. I think Alfa Torei a kind ofsafe and seventh between the top six and the bottom three, but I think thatposition toeight between Alfabramao, Hass and Williams will be e, Lok Ligy.Fifty points, that's for sure, yeah that'll be cool so that movs US intoone of the better stories of this SAS and Sofar mcclaren. It was kind ofpredicted. It was kind of predicted. I...

...watched like a few prediction medeosover the summer and M Yeah Rum was pretty big on McLaren. Obviously, CarlScience is like one of the high lever garded drivers outside the big threeteams and inlandos and goodup and comer, and yet they've done pretty well. Wewere talking about it before we came on Caloss in terms of individualperformance. Probably isn't that starked, like he's Geen in the pointsevery every rice, he got the fastest lappoint in the second grand prade yet,but he sat to ninth overall, which I don't know if he would be too happyabout person Lando. On the other hand, Landa would be stocked he's siting thatforth right now, but his first padium Oulsay that was Elso, Ot yeahand, then the second grandprad did similar thing.He overtook three people in ther controversy, Wi yeah in the last two laps ithing yeovertook, three, maybe two Um, so that jumped him up to fifth and yeah they'vehad a pretty good month, bigest surprise of the Urcan oireally shownsworth yeah and lendais actually doing bitsfor the sport 'cause as a yew Rac. If the races wereoverlocked own, he was like big on the twitch streaming, a d to game and likenow Campbell, who knows nothing about F one. He knows who lando is because oflike his game, and now he actually watched the race on the weekend and waslike asking how Lando's going and stuff so he's doing. N Some free promotionfor this wort, which is cool to see btyeah. This is a tough one to write'cause almost each Driv it deserves a different rating. 'cause like Landos,would obviously be a lot high, an cosis Bu Otain, the Mi thirteenth, on the wakend. If that's atop ten, you know topic finish: ircanhe se n pushing a tempories, yeah son Ye, Ithink off the back of last year. I think you would have Bein Lovin top Farus topsixes every week, so maye attach disappointing, but Ithink, as a tame they're looking pretty happy an they goang so far definitelypushing the the Bo boys. You know only one poin Ehad arose in point, which isit's exciting: To Watch Bohin, pushing Red Wall alltost you now four eighpoints behind: that's just a a good race or to in Theyre AHEADOF redbooks.I think theytaken that any day yeah, I think I'll give them an eightout of ten. I think they've exceeded my expectations. I know they probably hadhigh expectations of themselves but to be sitting above Ferrari above racingpoint. Whoever unye coming to the SEASOND had LIX Serios pahloothey're,doing pretty blody well and and, as you said, they're not too far, Fredbull,obviously no one's catching tesadeeas O here they're out there tter. Yes, so wh t. What are you going togive them aclaren right, McLaren ill, give an ache. Just it would havebeen anonge Sincor, Coffon, pozsys Hig, an Navy narroe in the points in theLasti pe. I think act pretty pretty good sa witout expecting and howthey've produced, especially on landers ledos in Bti, think tecause, the cosmereven well good paise, really up there with thebig dog, so they're, pretty happy where they're atut Nothingyeah thatoul definitely be certindale themselves to really pushout that attire, hopefully slepping the second on the Tame standings. I reckontheyre probably pushing for Othan whold ot race thering, an O puth themselvesto it to really push ther Stepin Al Walter atYe, yeah Um and then that moves us onto Mercedesgees, not too much to talk about really, probably the same as the last lise sixor seven years, the one or three races, one or threePOL positions that on one of the three fastest lap point bonus points, th, 'pretty much ticked every thing off the bucket lestte Sason one race, Wen Hunde can forth. So it was a Paimbot yeah, the rester onpart on the Hotim side. I think they yeah it's just what can you say,they're just dominating again h, pretty much expected. I think I think PA awittle love to see an Foris e disappoining, be a red ball challenge alittle bit more but Haiton's. Just looked on BOT IAE o a shaky StonAweeken, which he could ave may pten sho turn it to a first or second, once a Howarton Bu. I think yeahtheyre too good this yearagain, whichis annying, thut, facred, tothis, Ye withnaning of them anign, just'cause like...

...but they're, not a hundred percentperfect like attend would be for them with such high expectations. I think aten would have to be like tegit one to ever race, but Um, a the Alchemanon 'cause. Theirexpectations are so high that they have been pretty close to a partym in everyrace. I think Hamilton's crashed with the albun, which was a hundred ercent N,a fold of Hamilton. It is probably the only things stopping there from havingee every Anto a second sihe pin it they lost the fasthoyeah ees dominated wasany close yeah. So I guess the only thing they bring to the sport is just abit of a jewel between themcells the title. There's five points betweenthem at the moment, but unfortunately for Valitary, there'stwo races at Silverstone coming up and Louis has on five f the last six silverstorane Su truck, probably doesn't usually ul rise of Pobay doesn'tburrowd well for bolthasses hopes yeah, I'm not the biggest fan upon us, but hehe can draw the COE prey. Well, I don't know if he coan Driv as goodas part ofit thin that yeah they just dont as it'sfrustrating and you're, looking for a big wing, every Sheay Mercen, but it'salways just like Haerton on first after Wen, an its fifting laps into therice in I CAGO yobviously. The dream situation wouldbe like all ten times a competitive, but at least they just like get out ofthe way in the first three laps and you jusyu, like don't have to you- can justficus on the battleflack thed andfol te parting, O them yeah, like it's kind of weird, likeThoy, talking about it on the broadcast on the way CEN and is lictalegit. Justdidn't, show Lewis till like the sixtieth lop or something like that. Itwas just like he was SI farm faes like denation Mata, toshes s, Wi, just malls yeah. That was probably one of thecruiziest ones. I ver seen on the weekend, like he forpitded to trying inthe fastest lik which he did successfully Jupeter now quick woing is I tno they're, just tru yeah.I think all of them thee, pretty body good to their jobs. That moves us intoracing point also known as the pink Nessades due to them. Baswo is copyingin the twenty nineteen Mercedes, Antinan, pink, mhowever, insaying that it's exactlyit's worsful then come from. I don't know exactly where they came lost year.I think they might have come sick for something e teway in and around withRenno, but now they're sitting in forth. Justbehind mclare, an o Realy PRD, actually haven't one a partying yetwhich is really the only difference between them and reclaring at themoment, but a lot more consistent, evry, apart from the one retirement they've,had five results between fourth and Sevenh, so very consistent, they'veprobably been qualify, except for the qualifying session in the wet in thesecond Grand Previe that've been qualifying higher than they've beenlike, resulting in the race, which is probably no ideal for them probablysuggests theyr drive as on as good as like the mclarn drob is butt they'redoing pretty well, but our Paret, I'm not the biggest fanin Serl. If mvery very consistent, I think they'll take that yeah stroll, I mean fourth, on the weekend, just goonhungry, PA, Abon bats veal. I think they'repretty they be storpe to see the carpet in side servent. Second Weeken Alyfirstrecalled. Do you finish? No, that o dear yeahosaid Paris, has been now outdoingstrolgl, except for the weekend. I have to sound all the biggest fan of thestroll dislike the whole story about his dad, like earning the tame and like he's a very aggressive driva,which it tames the interesting but like. I think it was that second race, wherehe like, went around Ricado like off the h. He like Baselo Push Ricardo e,Tria conr and en rercado just had to calp it e H. I don't really write that from him.Well, Al Right, so jparis A in anoltimmrydriver PSO, hopefully for them Paris can maybeturn some of those sixth or sevents into a potential podium and that willprobably help them in their cause. When it comes to Homand, taking mclarin andmaybe pushing to overtake red balls, well, yehwe will see how they go. Ithink iback in mclan NOK goover opin with every Otar n operating point as itjust yet yeah, I think Max is too good. ITHES Mas well. Miss the Party and many wakends. If you finish, is the raceyou' Um in terms of ariting out of tent foracing point e stood e, pretty happy...

...without going and in a Straw e Old Dayeen. The first could be couple points that cashing on the Nair ride on RedBallbit yeah. I think maybe an eight agan,seven or eight yeah, pretty half o how theyre goingyea. He said the callifyings Mani Ba bit better than the actual Rase Dat maytaste a couple f rain, quite tof for me, but I think seting forty points after three really up there pushing for t top threetames. It's any timewul o have you that many Misaobe disappointe if they were at first this year, but the writing pointascertain their Prett, pretty stottorikin yeah I'll, give them a seven very closeto an a. But just the fact that I gave m clarin and ite and E had apartyin where his ricing point dant have a party met so ill I'll, punishthem. Tooish SA Yeahili'll give them a seven a yeah.She said, I'm pretty sure that they'd be happy with what they're doing atthemmironment and although some people were predicting it, it's still kind ofweird to see them up and up and around like sniffing at that. Those big pointpositions and stuff, like that, not a hundred percent adjusted to it yet so that moves us into the time. We camementioning the Red Bull, Um, very different store, siml to mclarn, buteven more extreme, fairly different slice stories. FACH DRIV, obviously Tistappins one of the best drives on the GROOD, if not the best and thenalbone's kind of figting his way in the car but has be said, ALBON swim prettywell we're talking, offair that that first race, where he got taken outby Lewis, if you turned that into a podium and then, if you'R, Takein,tohis counthe's. Fourth and fifth, then that's a pretty good three week stretchfor Albon M, but sadly that partying got ten into a thirtenth andthen all of a sudden, it's kind of a different outlook for him. Yebut Naxnaxis doing well two protiums and the retirement the first race, but I'm surehe would have got a party in there if not or wind, as he always does hesphone B, Yeah Albon did really well on theweekend. Both of them did well on the Wekend, actually ALBON qualifiedthirteenth finished fith Tisafin. Twenty Ninth Seenh finished second, sothat would have been pretty tough withthat noo race. On the weekend. Ithink in the race te canged a great job to get him back. Yep on the Grea YeahVery Sans worits TAT oever was but yehexactly yeah. Apparently it was ajob that normally takes like an hour and a half and they'd in twelve minutes,which is pretty I' y impressive Dogon. Now that mass works out, but 'v donesomething in then to hold second especialy when the car was doing whatit was very good race from. Actually, I think ie voted for best best on the GREDSFISHIN CAR CONDITION: ton, Bat Red Ball, not wite up there missags ithink interms of Carcolly, I had a few PN in oe. You know certain Essectialy in that carand a stiff, stife da could push another poum yeah he's he's something else, reallyback fees and easy gun, yeah Heis, Um Yeah. Certain terms of writing. I don't know actually a weird one:'cause they' they're, probably not as far away from Lik the mclarns, theracing pointsas they would like. But when you actually go, the race resultswith contexts an actually done pretty Werlei'll give them a seventh becauset's, probably exactly what they've expected really they're forly expectedthe stepen to get Paul, partims and then album to just be outside that so R.I think that would be happy on a second or Everstanin somting or on fourcommets behind Noris osing forth. You know we see an thost points when o Diget hit, I thinkprobably would payn orse, but uh yeah. I think Soenaright, I think they still produce. I some good good results for the car. Yeah andnow they'll take Secondo te. HeMil I, I trupp his Camplin Shomano, second on the tean Standings,potentially pus, and pressure on Masades, but in Tis. Look too good forthem to Tethis ye yeah, so ye, that's! If a reble, I haveto say with that albun crash it just there's one thing that annoys me in Fone: I don't know how you would do it, but it annoys me if you get taken out.Yes, the other person gets punish, but you don't get like Jon like it's kindof like in AFL NRL, when a play is taken out and that guy is suspendingfor the next week. It's like well, if that guy, who go injured, goes off toeconcustion for the rest of the game. Well, then, in that moment, that teamactually still like disadvantage for um a legal play which kind of somethingthat a noise being sport, but I'm not really sure, there's a way you can nget around. You can't really just make the race stop and put Albon back into got just pick up the car...

...yeh, it's stiff it, St anorsecapitalized on it te Partum, again Etbyeah. I think I think that's gon to beALBON's mission for this next three RAC, stretchso to get his first podium. Thatwould be. I think rebel would be very happy forhim to. Finally, I Tan Roun Onon, I so ehes gun not quite deady Wa Tink, but Ithink as a jer that pretty predim tons, especiall rage, yeah and then on to the Reno H,interestingly they're getting smashed Byn mcclaren, who actually uses a RENAengine which doesn't really make too much sense to me. It's L Y H has thatwork, but it's interesting think Ricardo chons go er, maybeozzy BA toet,th ahe's still pushing the car aon, I think, can con in the boys Y hasn't producedtoo much. He e as t year lhe seems to be like Kibiat, where he'sjust like just solid nothing. Special Ber we picked up an IP in the firstyear, went othe a dean afer a fourteenth in that cars robe little an disappointing in forthat for their perspective, Ricardo Pidevonate oos in Hungary, which ICANOye more expected to see and produce those kind of results and an eigth theweek before and all sees dear. If we one hurts the that's the points but Y, I think backto my ats, for color is definitely the conitanded and ALCOM Cun get in th topTN for some points. I even they might push up the TAM taninglittle bit put the pressure on foror if they don't fix their car towis, but Y H,I think theyre that' l definitely looking to it. Just Cape Saxs really push away from theother lower teams. Yeah, I don't know what it is with Reno. They seem to havea lot of retirements over the last few seasons. I know than that's why redfoll change to theHonda engine or whatever but yea yeah, and then the only thing for Renoit's a bit of a tough season. This one 'cause, I don't think they're anywherenear the top. Well, not, they are close to them, but I don't think they'regoing to compete with the top five and then I think they're better than thebottom, for I feel like similar to Alfatory they're KINDOF t stuck in theposition they are and it kin of just comes down tohopefully a few decent individual performances to make their season a bitinteresting the season at six. You know it seats up for grabs inof the seasonso ifeon in Beikre Tar ICROSOM at themoment, butnotcoming as being, I think, reo stuck. It speaks to the whole hesPOB it. What were Cinto Sae American yeah yeah I'll go not to be like funny,but I'll get te se for theire riting as well. Maybe four ther was talk yeah, theyprobably wishe. They were doing a little bit better, but probably a bad war. We expecodthem toCaoars Tong a little but ther stool, th, FI, Shane points beond, so likeDanny Rick as youere saying maybe Astran bysebut. If he turns outretirement into a points finish. If he's had three straight points finishesin or I like, that's a pretty good effort Im. So althugh I'm giving inthem a six on'y think they've done that bad um. They just probably need to tryand limit those retirements. Yeah there's always seems to be somethingwrong with the Renno hollord it in he scuries of I fiveseasons but yeah big Cyril, not lot of Fantasera, actually E. I bepretty funny, but yeah heis funny he's funny he's a character about feel. Like I don't know, I guess Christian Hon isa Bitofanob as well at T, then Hav anything MEA ITT, Yo, nomeof thet comver. No, it weird Ala to say: Yea, a pretty good joways, so yeah tee,foos setisfied that a but, I think, ran ear. Probably just Shin Ot see hoy yeah andthen, in terms of the final team to take off, we e got the Williams Um.Surprise. Surprise is still stuck and Lagh with no points, as they have beenfor pretty much three or four years straight latife's, a newdriver to Flan N he'sdone. Alright, he got an eleventh in the first Gra, which is pretty good,but when you give context th the fact that there was like seven retirements,you nohe takes it a little bit away from it, but still good effort. Um Avy. If ybe watching the starts gred atthe block and underther car ro O' Help Him Yeahad a bit of a tough wakend. I thinkhe went off the track three or four...

...times I thinkin pitted hem five timessuming. So wasn't the easiest run for him. An angry they've been qualifyingwell, which is I'm not sure. What's that down to really M, maybe just downto the fact that hals and Alfarama don't have the greatest power units atthe moment but like on the weekend they birth got out of Qon, so y always getconfused. Is the first session Qon or its fesesion KTR for each of ther, fastones, Qo, and then it goes to keythrees like the top ten yeah. They both gotout of that first session, which is like a first for Williams in a longtime, long time, but then came race day and they with a final two cars tofinish. Theteeth anobviously with the Gadthey retire of all finished carsthat tapehes lost every week, Russel second nolry into weeks- that's JI, soI mean Referoa Mo and you loil bit better than what it us for the CA AIN'coming up, youpay an alone, but really butthe Tim. It's tough to write there. It's tough to give her writing becauseit's like there was no other expectatio. I mean Rusrusseenpaeome, good rouns,itisooeonly, no, ten to twelve througtring races in then I tin, Hes, Daesdiner, first Wak to Ne Yeah. I think he was. He was Soni Tento twelve thrwall, an cargous. It's a mechanical issues. I think put me atthe rising IBE hes shown some promise the youngman, but I played my Baldy Digalins, the nextfeweas for half days in car, yeah I'll give them iin e the five orsix I'll give them a five like that. It's pretty much spot on what wethought they were going to do, but I think, given the spots thatve beenqualifying, that they would like, like a better result, com. I think,after the on that t race, ouldnt e, to do it for some points. Definitely yeI'V got being fair, like no turn out the cars onagreed. Whatelse yeah et comn eleventh out of eleven firstWik stiff me sound a point or two maybe and ef he sneaks up one moresolenbeayeah, nowthe Ro is a producon. We see it once again sure yeah. I guess I upside for them. They've gottwo weeks of a home graund prey coming up, but I'm not sure if that's really goingto help their performance on the tri who knows mabe moral boost, theeon theylaughan B. No, I ewas rright. So that's it in terms of TamForteen. Now a general oroverview. If we have to award a team of who are the top three teams, so we can.Basically, I guess, look at our ratings can'twe, but I, if we go on top teansI'd, probably have to want it to maybe mcclarm. I think they've been the Stano Taiosasas had the best results, but that's cone is what we expect your Mercedes.So I think I would have to give the best tame to McLaren for sore closelyfollowed by Mercedes and racing point. I think your thin closreble justaforoly. They crackd that top three Bi diser point ise, no, fifty five, stillSitin op behind Mycedes, probably bi disappointing for them, eacen tesadage claen racing point mean you can argue either way, whichones one two and three face on results and expectation and stuff. I think itsAPRETY Priesti a Topthra in formost, yeah and then worst worse tames. Ithink everyone would have Karari number one Ose s ve had a root O tot. Then I win't it's pretty hard to choosethe other two cause. Everyone else's cons, performing to expectation apartboy exceeding apartfromt forar, say I don't think I'll name another two. Ithink I'll. Just Forhi Hawat a fer son rary. He Harsh Markyloo Witha Lok ome. You Know Pushan Ou Fotour at sevenpoints a tha wl watce to sea crs on up there, maybe magnisine you knowproduced. Some goodresults at justy fon point just a pretty big l fanny any come iththe Ferrari Pana at the Mitert, just o suffered Ito Alpa for our intoms, allin that Bort now in tones of drivers. If we HAV The watertop three drivers,this is a tough one. If, if were Li pulld in a bfit on theways, definitelystop Te, maybe just at theair Ye Wer, surprise Jeez. I think the stuffins which got tome toppe to for sure yeah actually think I'd go ve Stopin, onenos to Hamilton tree and then bottass and Paris just missing out yetan outlaw, maybe sneaking but yeah, I...

...think yeah, I think definitely peaponnorse really Shalinson to Godraw. You see it yeah. I I'm definitely going to startthat. So, as I mentioned on a previous episoe, I've been trying to do likeBrown, low top virds for Fel t bols. I'm definitely going to give it a crack.CERRING diriking would be interesting. Think would be interesting to see come the end of the season whichdrivers you know exceededexceeded expectations week affter week and thenterms of worst driver wel. This is a tough one. Yeah, actually I mean Jevin nows he's done nothingspecial! You GOP to Niht a ight have to go D. I have to go n vetal, yet it'shard to distance their car from theself, but I think I'll go vetl and sciencebottom, two very stiff on signbut just compared to what Norius has beenproducing and I think everyone considered science, the best driver,that's not at a top three Teamsir and you are very stiff given oule for sureyeah and then next, maybe oconal sign hesin. I pretty much just pretty muchjust guessing Theryeah, obviously grogeon and Steff Havei mengripe or their cause Josa ever great ate. That's pretty much O, sometimes not allther foult whatvyeah yeah, it's tough m! So that's pretty much it for the F ones.We've GOINTO wakened off in terms of the Fon season this wake, and then wego straight back into a now. The threeg Wek of three wakes and back to back sotwo it silverstern and then want a baseline us ir e Tha will be meanyeahoteams to look at the cars Maye make some changes. I reckon next you WIC Ye, pretty exciting yeah.I think Ferari definitely needed this wakeaftor trand Sol some things out. IKnow Prom change soming in the car and then they in the second ration an they bothcrashed in the first lap, so they just like couldn't see what happened. So Ithink little stuff like that they'll need a week to work out if theirimprovements are working and stuff like that, Rarmaag Form Il definitely lookto gay back on to Mabe review the next tree, buntrance of f one races m afterthat HEU're, not too sure when that would be, I think, late August orsomething. But now we move on to the M B A said. I think it starts tomorrow,ohare some matthers on rther. I don't look too much into it. To be honest, Ithink other sports have taken my prioan. It's been so long since the last game. I arn't Li. It's kind of weird there'snot much information on it. Yeah Im like looking at the star up ITW's,pretty o ive done it to me, honest ithink, it cated interesting. So nowtwenty three Tams in non from the T seding from the West, so it's the top agg plus any teams withwithin six games of the top AC yeah the wizoms. I think eas, I think, there'seight games. I think each team plays eight games or something yea andnn. That's the kind of see thefinals and give the teams outside the eight to have a crack, ot it and thenthere's some weird. I don't know a hundred percent what it is, but there'ssome weird playoff yeah so clm. If the night seed is within four games of theAPE a have a little plain toan, so I think, like I think it's out a three orsomething and then eighth gets twro chances ar not yet oh, like a kids, anextra chance, tels, the first guy, an whatever so yeah. I think it's that'Rason that' an interesting concert. I mean, if ti. If the notsatst four games,Wer Hin to eight TTKT, might be a little bit. Stuf Yeah B, there's only a few few games tolet catch up those six game bracket. So it's interesting! Oh there. Sometimes.I might chow some promise to with only a few gays in the season. What comegood, so organ be exciting. HEA'LL, definitely be exciting in theWest, like this, only two spots of Te Grans but there's seven tams buying otfor those two SPALL disonery Dallas, look lit they've, pretty muchconfirmed this, but but especially for that ID spot I's going to be spicy. SoY H, most ace a litte bit more to him. Memphis really you'd think I get T erand they go pretty good, roste Terri, so yeah. So in terms of Y, your top three favorites to win thecompetition. Who, who are you looking at at this stage? Yeah there's a fewfew big teams, I think mill walk, is looking pretty good, noes, probably the best part on thecompat at the moment, probably Hink Boston's a sniff. I think thtey'll come good for shor t'shown himselves this year,...

Well Owen in forty three twenty one socould show from the boys Mie Hat bivet. Maybe it were Ruffi, my boyc tehatforty unred and wenty four, but IEA light. His clipes NOO CN definitelyseem to be te betr yeah that probably the thre big dogs are there yeah forsure, yeah Um and then in terms of top three teams y you like W. I don'tknow how to wear this, but you wouldn't want to face it in the PLAYERF, so UN.Obviously the three teams you mentioned would be the Free Tam Sho, wouldn'twant to face bom talking teams who were going to sneak in at sixt, seventh,eighth or even fifth, that could really produce an upset and gon a bit of Aran.Who, who would you be afraid of? If you know my ami came third and then gotdrawn up against, I think fely sitting its texth in a Aston confeence fallons last year,Livs on that crazy cuile, shorp, yeah, yeah Shily's, pretty tough Brooklyn,I'm not sure yet, yet, there's still ga native recorse, I don't know iethreatened by theever. A few series bet, um terms of the West. Houston seatcease AING NEAINAAS. That could put somepressure on, especially in e cloudped bepies, really really dominate Dallas Fulo going staff and getsomething going. Maybe they can put a few gats on the board, but a pressureon Al Pop from that I don now talicins,maybe Xam signed missing a few weeks to the family. An she was leaving thebubble, but now she heard about that yeah. He left the bubble. FOROM familyraisin, his N Itink, he's missing a couple of weeks, but if, when he getsback, they could really push it. Pushin that eice pof an hour four games, Bo, ind, Memphis andPortland a game ahead Palikins. So I think itwould be interesting, but Ithink the begto retains are really really could put on an ffirt her, soyeah. I can't lie I'm actually very ceen for this, like I'm, not thebiggest basketball fan, but I usually watch the playoffs every year and thisis basically just like an extended playoff series 'causeelike, although,although there's like phenix hitting in thirteenth in the West, still in thecompetition likepretty much every game's Gong to be between playoff teansor play off contendeds, so don't e, Pretty High Love Is Yong. That should be pretty good. O'exposewell, be a threat, an same the Kins I'. No I'm looking to go for any time.'CAUSE I like just watching it as a neutral, but F I'm pretty, can to watchlike the Celtics, even Denver, I'm just like the teams that they're not reallycarried by one or two players, they're more. Just like a team effort. I write that stuff all Oraso Oteti eCamo yeah smile, yeah like it to Runherand, then Don Oso. I have it thisyear, a Soona sa yen oan that no ti've got a pretty good reck wish. I push agrood tree, backet soin. I don't know if that Fro Walking th, I onn e Batthem across Soyeit, probably hurts them, probably hearime that they've lostthere like home advantage, which was pretty big for them. Definitely well.It's realy had a lot of tames. To be honest, no, I guess kind of evens out, but in terms of individualwars who who would you be looking at o when the MBP and Whodo you reckon willbe in the all N ba first team, obviouslyhard to Eeobo lating and maypay race? Yet I think he's got a few he'slearving a few steps. I think so he's just he's something else, but Labron Inow popen talk about him,ihisage and stuff. I think he's Letin ecise this year. So that's pretty pree,crazy, aatage so think. First, I haver avraged overTennessee Fersasan say I think you might be a smit, but youknow I think hhonest is just don madit again. He should get to FANC par theyear in Ren, but uh OL EBE a first, an free, tough,few good guards and stuff going around Ifhin Trey Young Ibe. Looking at it apie for t one of the gardens pots, Jomari it'. Just me thin ou make thaall first, but he definitely worth a mention of his performance to se yeah roocet rookie of the Ir it SeanOeus, really yeah. Oh the east. It's tough! You Got Yanusin there, L Labron, taking a small four power forward, maybe a lot O lrtisshon stuff hard andactually yeah Hadagapao Nam Infection, God who's his sinner. Sarah! It's is abi big ban o like the most improverican.

I think they go. Watch hat for the ban,H Yeah! I O pro I ouht to Irun, maybe Davis, potentially he'sbeen pretty yeah tha yeah, that's true! I think Anthony towns was pretty hotstopped. I think he cindanore calm down a Bibuyeh Mentos, I no as soon as it interesting, there's, always differentstatitry whold compare better and porks and steels and points and stuff so yeah. It's pretty good Tis stagan ternsto qualty but yeah. So they like those, although those big three teams in termsof like starp power, a lot better than the rest, a thing as a wide range oflike high level teams, ere, like Oo, mentioned early the fact that Houstonand Philadelphia sitting at sixth sick in their respective conferences,that'slike pretty spicy dear Thas, I mean T, might be bit Lon an whatthey're expecting me for talking about expatation in at a when Indiana shesFusinkin th S, Ove Lov. In that I mean sine percentages, Feeli hutsreally inconfuse yeah, but feel you've lost a few poseon see few within couple points, so that might scrape hem up to forth oreven E. First, some of those go their away, but Li looking at second Toronoforty six WINDSD Philly at cease the third on sevengames in it, the tall, Fiv Outsi on know, war he's Pretty PrettyInteresting Tome on the asty conference side, yeah, so t that's Pretty Huh who we'vegot for you say Um Cat Li, I'm glad we did the MBA episodetoday. I wasn't sure when Wen to do this episode, but didn't quite realizeit was starting tomorrow. So capretty re best looked to knew it last coupleof doys, not sure of those games. Uh, I'm hoping thit can't ecause itd begood to get back on. The robit yeah might be Racyeah Spyeah O. Althoughthere's a lot of sport anight at the moment with the Cricket Rugula, Il ZocaUd be good to get some twenty four seven small garns epeciall bit and the law. So we lovingat the bassfols back San a ato bath, always jeezow. Our group challory gets sentthrough Enough Malti. If baskall gets oun to the mix, it could be cul, itcould be the mute button could be. It could be a chance to giveme a chescet's unfortunate that more he puts aways joics disappointing T's. Never Never EnButi got some boy shul he be wingd. I Realy H, Ot hat, so that's pretty much.It Really Er tink. We probaly have anything else Toah. So that's that'syour first three rounds of the F one seasan annual NBA resumption preview.
