Ochs welcome back to the UNERBOAD podcastthis, this episode N. Ninety Four of the show I'm joined with one ot of newguest you've been on quite a few times, but haven't had anyone on basically forabout thirty episodes, so welcome back, Alex painup ses, weird calling ye Alexia how Ar we mate and I'll be a to be back. They probably episode since I was last one but notGoud, to be not paying for yeah. I'm actually excited to talk aboutsomething oter than NFL. Obviously, I've been loving at the moment, but canto diversify once again, because I do love all sports. So today we're goingto be talking about F one, as that is what we do as a Jeo we've. I thinkwe're done maybe three episodes before this one, but we haven't done mine in awhile. It's not since, like halfway through the season. So today, as youave, probably guessed we're going to be wrapping up the two thousand and twentyseason so just going to be reviewing each team season, how they went, howhow think they might go next year or something like that and then we'll justdiscuss best race of the year, also which drivers impressed us the most anddisappointed us the most, and we might share our opinions on next season atthe end on the empty driver seats and who we think's going to. You know boltup theire standings, but I can we get straight into it with the race of theMMA. Rightwe did a little bit of thinking about this before we came onhere. But what is your race of the Jeez? My initial thoughts were gazle's Winin Mongsup that yet multiplered flags, just hecticness no Lewis who's charge from the backbit re Haarenowna lapse, then also, I thought the first race of the year where Charleswas flying in the Ferrar that looked good and lando no is is last lap withHowiton's penalty was just something something. O E watch there's been a couple, others that areprobably worth teenting. Paris as Wen would have been good if rustl win, the the Sedes, wasn't PUNP T and all e over bent over therebut yeah. I think if Russell had a kit on there pushed in think o uld IDN nowsomriht Blockton Lav to watch, but obviously thate bin come to fruition byArican Mons ar o the first Ricetra yeah thre. There'sactually a lot to choose from. I feel like normally it's pretty clear whichar the top three top to races, Baruk and there's a lot of lot of hecticalones. This year mine, I was going to do some research on mine, but I justthought you know what whatever comes first to my head I'll pick, becausethat's obviously there's something happened in that race. It's reminded meof how good it was, so I'm actually going the British gram free. So this isthe grund free, where all the lads tires just shirked it bought. I I think,bought us on the second last lap, Homilson on the last lap and just Tup,and set the lat record for the course for the track on the last lap. He wasabout started the lap forty seconds behind Hamilton and Hamilson hadpunctured ties and yeah. I think it got. The gap got down to withiin ten secondsbothe. It was pretty dull race up until like the last ten laps or so, but itjust got really hectic at the end and there wasn't too much auttitition atthe front of many races, this season with Hamilton leading most by thirtyseconds, but for this one, furves Tup untown the really hectic comeback, andI think there was also a bit of hectic...

...action around like the fourth fifth andsix spots. So I think Turkey also deserves tha shirup or just check. Thatway. Excuse me, I think, that's where they had a fewred flags and they'll comen Strai off the safety car, someone straight to theback, an car, lof scins and then ten another, no yeah there ere. There are afew ands with some hectic crashes, but a lot of REDYEA, which is pretyte yeah,no yeah. I remember, I think we did our last podcast like the week after therace, where there was multiple red flags, and we were saying like it's thefirst time since, like two thousand and seventeen or something yeah and thenbasically boody every race, aferyeah yeah yeah, I rekon with coming most of thegood races there, Eesuri candn, we just get into a bit of team by team analysis, so I don't know who we want to startwith Orcan. We just go alphabetical ter. If I can quickly think of the alphabet,so starting with Aurfaromeomate, what did you make of their nothing special? I think, didn't Shiwline, really in any moments, probably just what they're expecting, what we're effecting almost reallypretty pretty bland for a Fuk. Really did that too much onte time to the yeah they were. They were pretty dull.I like they got a quite a few decent finishes, but it was more just becauseDNSS would push them from like Sixteenh to like twelve. So there was a fewtimes. I think they had a few points of finishes, but yeah most of it was due to crashes.I like, I think they did decent if anything may be over performed a littlebit of what we're expecting, but yet nothing of a note really with ne likepoints on the constructors, an eighth place tbut not to nine points behindseventh. So it's like it's reallegi but t they 're the best of the worst byfive points to half and then millions an zero, so yeah, I think, going goinginto it. I would have thought that's. The level like alphatarry would havebeen a yeah just rapping up a few points here and there, but theyobviously took a step up with ghastly having a kille year. So alrfe Roma waskind of just left on their own in that bracket were they're not as bad asHarson Williams, but that they're not great so yeah, not not too much toreport on the Aufarromeo Front, but I think they did serviceable. Bothdrivers have been resigned and I think that's probably fair. I think both ofthem did pretty decent this season. So I think Jimmy especially he had twonine places: Yeah and Therere a couple times where you know he was drilling itout with bettle and stuff and he would regularly win those clashes so yeah. Ithink both drivers did decent bud altimately. The team just didn't havemuch impact on there. Any races at all, so probably them and williems wouldprobably just didn't really care. Just knewn wathe Okin, O down the bottle.Yeah like Hass, provide us with a bit of entertainment, futhey're just kindof reliably blow average, these two teams, ah so yeah. I don't really thinkwe need to touch on Althrom e anymore. That's amaitable, but an ext year Sofu more than eigh points, Ather, yeah and I'll probably come downto. If the Ferrari engine gets any better I', be sure about that theynever knew that it probably weren't supid yeah, hopefully the or all rightnext side, Alphatawri cat lime, a big affatowry fan s this year absolutelykilled it. This year I wan't spoil my drives of veer and stuff, but Ghaslyehad an absolutely killer year and yeah. There's like Kibeat, is kiyead evenworth. Mentioni had a couple decent finishes in the back part of the year,but es trying pretty well, I think its...

...doesn't mean ou or the sake finissue,which I thought was retzinlane yeah we shdown pretty. Well. I thought thatyeah, nothing, I think Ghatlys sensationally is probably ouch on hisyeah. It's probably hurt him actually a little bit and Ti Hese team an had sucha good year, but as a team they actually killed it in a as I mentionedbefore. I I was expecting aurphitowery to be down in the single figure pointslike on ten o, something like that. Just getting the occasional nint ortenth place, but yeah to win a race is just in insane and then to get multipletop five finishes. That's really incredible and they seem to be very good at keepin the cars on the track. They didn't have too many retirements ghastlyactually finished every single race. I think many drivers could say got fromhere, yeah, so alpatarry absolute kill. You once again we'll talk about it after interms of out the best drivers of the best teams of the year, but they woulddefinitely be up there in both categories. For me, in terms of guslyand the team, you have FOTU absolutely killed. It can't lie it's probably notthe most exciting team moving forward because they probably do have a ceilinglike they are basically redbuls FEEDA team, but yeap they've got a new driver,Yuki Sinuda can't can't o say I know too much about him, but hasn't been aJapanese drivear. I like Thenda, thirteen or fourteen. So I fast en yeah,I'm sorr IAS get a bit got figrt up, yeah, be good to see how they go andGoud to see how they compete in the mid midfeel battle once again, so yeah alphatarry good year, Solidsolfoly, actually not Solin for Youen a lot more than that, but well played tothem all right next in alphabet. If my knowledge is correct for Ari Ewhat, a e y you making for Ari Gi, forary, obviously no Anye, where theyusually are where they want to be obviously they're, usually di. In thebig three yeah reme for o Red Boal, so I think from the start of e that hemaybe very disappointed. If you looked at way, they probablywanted to be at the start of the year to where they finished. I think, aftera few races, I think they w're pretty set. You know just in that mid fieliskind of battle with I mean Te, was probably like eighth to thirteen,usually during the rase yeah, and look Le Clars, usually usually qualities pretty well, and thenyou know kind of drags back a little bit during the race drops a few porties.I mean they had the clers that in in the first rice, Ithink, which n so much needed points I think, looking at the constructors, Elfatari, unred and seven and seventhand then Foro six at onred and thirty one. I think the second kind of kind ofsaved them so yeah we come into last fract with Alphatary, say ten points behind for something or fivewints behind foror in the last race. ITHING tey be a huge, huge midfielbattle. For that. I think. That's second pis kind of just put him looking back at now, Secu than that sixspot to Alfa but yeah, I think tha be pretty disappointed. Yeah hundredpercent Vatale, like don't know if it was him as much as the car but e he hada stinker of EA really like, was expecting decent things from him and hefinished outside the top ten more than he did finish inside it so yeah. Itwasn't great and similar to the Kibby. At ghastly thing he looked prettyaverage because the player was constantly Li. CRATIM Chil I like iveto six positions, so yeah yeah, Ju Shas, like obviously going into as youmentioned in preseason. We would have been expecting more, but given the carhe had, he ended up with three protums...

...and a couple for couple fourth places.So I don think Charles had the worst yhear at all think he was actuallypretty decent proved in a bad car that hes still one of the best drivers inthe field, but as m as a team, pretty bad yeah and like as you mentione inthe end, we kind of adjusted our expectations for them. So the back endof the year didn't seem too bad from them, because we were expecting weerlike eight to twelve finishes, but when you compare to what wet expecting itthe start the whole year as pretty pretty rubbish from them, yeah tofinish below Ma, Claren racing point Reno we be tods on that would have beenpretty silly in preseason, so yeah, not a great year from Peri you'd, beexpecting them to bounce. Back next year, obviously, IAVE signed color sinse fromAcclaren, which I think will be a sold move. I like Carlsas, a driver otherWHO Graddiv I tey. Can you can you see them finishing that lowagain next yearor do you think the inevitable bounce back has to occur? I think they've said that the Caris notgoing to be great this year, I think heve, hopefully, that they'vekind of put the expectations lower just in cars o Sho, Yu, redit, hofull not',not Foryo, guys, o they kind of like increase it. A bit now hopeful thatouts back modestly tha the horses ot the front again, so you know I might use I'm not really an Forarifan more more red boll, an the clan, but I don't. I don't want to Sa him oufront Giveng, the big dogs a bit of it right, their money, yeah, definitelymore the more people at the front, the better, so yeah. I want to see thembounce back a little bit, maybe not too much yeah. I don't really want to seethem winning got the biggest fans ot them, but especially FIS shells. Thiscase I hope they have a better car for him and it'll be interesting to seeCarlos in a in a bigger team with a bigger budget, so at'll be all good tosee, but yea not a great year from Perari, definitely below par and belowtheir expectation, but yeah. Fifty fifty points behind fifthprobably says it also Esis, yes, so great, but t Charles did very goodeffort in a bad car yea a right. Next up, we've got halh our favorite Tam onthis podcast. As the Harspot preapointthe to two point finishes. The nint gotthem up to the three points in in Germany in the EIFEL grumpry yeah look w. What can we say about Hars? It'sjust it's just more of the same reallyduring last season, like we hot much improved, which was disappointing on their end, but yeah alot of retirements, I think the second car retired more than it didn't. Basically,they were pretty much always had one DNF yeah, which is isn't what you wantto see. The only their highiut of the seasonwas probably when they didn't pit stop or soming in when therewas a safetycurrele up like third and for the e, I think as the MEST relemance, they hadto any race o e attention, Thatat yeah, and they were just some blocking peoplefrom coming through, but yeah apart from that, they didn't really get up totoo much. Romon caused a few crashes at the start of the season which we loveto see an. I Gov a few deness to that's beet, a bit ten effort really for it.Dnss yeah they shaded around, but yeah, look not Buch to really saveour Hart, similar to Owr Fri May, once you realized early on in the season, itwas just going to be more of the same. We kind of just stopped paytingattention to their results, and they were always just in the backfield justbattling with Williams. To avoid void...

...last place so yeah, really a few DNFSwere only reason they secured points, but that's about it. Bsy Not a greatyear from Hars, don't know what the future O on tellyis. I don'teven know if you're still there, because, like ever since he's beeninvolved, they haven't been great. Let's Mo is Vido, does previd a fewgags here or there. So, U Oi wonder when the Netflix show is coming out:Hardqo Sodin rater later I'm sorryking for it yeah mcan s! Well, but yeahthey've got two new drivers. Next year, Hass they've got a young RussianDEKEIDA THATS APN. I don't know how to say that last name, you know RussianOca Don' know how Russian would say. That's more like a French fibe and thenmix you maca, obviously so cang Wi Soto yeah. That would be interesting, beexpectations for me. ECAUS. I feel a bit bad for him, but gl be good to seethe name up to o yeah exactly did it could be good to see the name back inthe sport yea just a but yeah inthe Shit Po has any or any final thoughtson Hassmad. So thank God, gojons Ar Right Affr.That crash, that was pretty yeah, ws Yeah Wuyo, said seeing I not behind thewell the half thixyear trhis on hell, part of the couse ofe accident and stuff it was. Itwas always funny having groge on yeah, actually kind of like him. He seemslike like he seems like a Aharm was blike fithe. He cause a lotof heart, yeahe promly. I think seelkyeah yeah, not not much else to really say.Is there just a bit of a nothing season from halse right here now we're testingthe Alphabet, knowledge? What is after Hage? We it's going to be one of theEMS iican. I think it's replarn. I think it's a playern. What do you think of Mclaren? He maygood deal yeah great year. We said to see Carlando go the Jeo ofdreams, the boys, but I think both drivers really did their part O ea. I would't NAV Thedrivers Charloss a hundred and five points, Lando. Ninety seven, so youknow racing it for those points and stuff, so both pulled their way showedsome some good speed and some good results of both o the landor hardy. In the first first raceand Carl got second at Monzo ith that ridiculous finish probably felt a lapor too short of probably as a certain win catchingGasli, but no ithink that both prove that point. This year they have peteplay especially young waand Oan. They Carlosan for R INXYEA ithink, it itesinin Te warting yeah, they kind of they kind of tookturns the first half of the season was Lando's like season. He was stillin allthe headlines. There at Carlis got off to a bit of a slow start, and thencalos really came home strong after that second place, where we got so yeah pretty good year from Aplayeran. I wasn't expecting it but like if youhad to pick a team to come. Third that wasn't that wasn't Ferrari, I probably wouldhave put my money with the player and over like a rennal or something butyeah y Iwas still good to see them up there, and it was always a veryexciting battle for the place in the constructors championship. Soappreciatei me Claren and racing point in Reno for that one yeah yeah, very,very good. Yeah. Definitely enjoyed Lando andcalse season of racing yeah just respect meclaren. They play movingforward. Theire ditching renos engine going back to Mercedes engine, sothey'll once again be called in the Claren Mercedes, which I don't know about you, but when I wasgrowing up watching a videar for one, that name was always like front center.All the TIMEO,...

...so yeah it'll be good to see. McclamaSaes back they've obviously picked up Danie Ricardo to partner Lando Noris,which is got to be one of the most exciting part partnerships we've seenin ages, thhas been a few good ones. Then you ende, I think they'll be ar we for o o no be up there yeah.Hopefully they can push a red door and masines having a eyes on the back ofe Ithoe fellows. I recan nobe fly yeah, definitely looking forward to a love,lovedmclarence and love, love, Lando and Dan, so very excited for that onedid you reckon Jerkn Nebrok Jerkand? They could finish above red, bull or yeah. I'm not ruling a that. I thinkyou're, a good chance. Yeah well obviously, wait for, likepreseason testing and stuff it'll, be tough to ITWILL, be tough to overthrowing backs, but definitelywhoever they sign in their second seat, whether it be Alex AlbonorNicoholkenberg definitely can be tugging that drive every week, etherthenumber one wop actually tinof the Ro Ohyeah. He hasn't been bloody re, SominRasin, I'm so out of thelu with the Exta se I think is favorite to be Silen,but what wea as it I does got. Ta Feelin albons sticking around he aneste Bu almols. I be pretty hectic if aers went sates next year e verydisappointing. I tell you that much yit proved a point this year. That he's gotit so yo didt Li if he doesn't get picked up, yeah like parents, butthere's only two sats left yeah so good year from mcclaren, both McLaren standsI' say he definitely one of their favorite sides and yet great year,Thirtin, the constructors chammionship, probably the very ceiling of what theirexpectations were. So theye played n, msarn and well done to Lando and Calos.Next up, it's got to be the other M team. If my alphabet is correct andit's Vasades, what have you run out of things to sayabout the saties? What did you make it? The just just class fell fast in thecard is obviously just superior to everyone else. But yeah I mean not much else. You can say that mysidea like te good, just Clark to classy floors, yeah like it. Actually itwasn't that boring this year, because they e often jused out the front, andthen there was just carnage behind them so like and then there'd be a Sancticathat come back and an they'd go out again so like it wasn't even that badin terms of them winning every race, but they basically did when every racebut yeah there played i Lewis just once againconfirming how good he really is and laying his claim to the go title afterhe retires and Bodhouse. Do you think Bodhaus had a bit of a disappointingyear or yeah do really agree with him residing hisMytari Ame George is pretty stiff not to get the the call up. Hopefully,there's a bit of a career Angel. Obviously lowis has it Resolan, sowould be a pesiv es, Hinon the red ball or something yeah IIn, just a just a prever on that e's, thebest and e Heman Ma. I think he an NATC Hav been pretty far on and off thetrack, yeah the entertain that I think he's yeapen site dowout, the YearatThemaxan, probably with another championship, buthopefully to be closer this year he doesn't wit it halfway through thatdoesn't guaranteed Tou Fi, though the season yeah, like obviously as an FoneFan, you've, got to just pay attention to all the battles, all throughout thetwenty seats, but Um Yeah Hen when the number one is decided halfway throught's, definitely hard to like stay as...

...plump for the for the upcoming races.Yeah Lewis was that far ahead, the whole time but yeah disappointing fromBoloss. It has to be said, the only one two races which I think is lower than his usual Itallinin the last years and-and he actually didnt know that many protams quite a few finishes like in the low top ten posie,which would have been disapointing. I think o things were pretty stiff. Hewas at it was out there, especially the second aff the season. I thought he'sthat they having a Cracch Onn, trying to bet how ton always try to do theopposite, tards or what how Muccan Yot, Ik and stuff, and you always trying toled that charge with the Pirun, sometimes meae kind of Creain, myovervie with that but heas get out there. Fo lite G got a coupleweeks, but yeah, I don't think Hes A. I would have loved to see George andthat's Sa this year yeah. They definitely took a more risky strategy with himthis year last year. That were pretty happy just to come. First Ha, second inevery race, but I RECON BOT US at this year, like m willing to cop a few fifthaits and stuff like that. If it means I get a few more wins, but it didn'tquite happen. But that's what happens when you've got auxibly the goat in K,a probably a better car than you soit's, pretty pretty hard recipe to bea soyeah another superstar year from Mercedes Wall on to toto and the boys, but yeah it's hard to see them gettingdethrown any time soon as the kings of Fone, but yeah exactlyright, yeah, fairplay to the Merk. They absolutely killed it once again and Louis anotheranother title to add to his collection right. NEXTDAP Jesus is really testing the alphabetknowledge here. This actually wat is a racing point yeah. I think it is yeahwo back in Racing Pan Sre the pink Mark Great Year, crit re year, anless Woul, you argue t better than theCLIENTE. I would just yeah. I would go myexpectations: Preseason Weld, probably ged law for them, N McLaren, but yeah, it's ve, toustic hear yeah. The press,Jon is really dod. Obviously carious is a whole lot of the infident that EENStrogle at Hes des part for Onhe had seventy five points, but he got asecond place and it was fiftin Turkey or something, andhe hes backright, Punchit or spoter, whichput it out the rast like ten maphs, left or Someong so but yeah. I think fantasticall, especially from Parisforth in Tha, in the driters hundred and twenty five point thing: Life fromDanny Rickon, Carlos and Albon and stuff so best for the rest of thedrivers really between outside of Hammilton Potteston, the stuff and birdyeah, fantastic efod ricing point yeah, he's probably stollen that throne fromscience. This season is the best of the outside that top those top three ladsbut yeah absolutely killed it. He won the second last race of the the secondone in Bar rain and had a second in Turkey and ye ITUs really consisted nedifferom Paris pretty much every single race. He was between fourth and seventhand he was just regularly putting in those consistent formances, which ishow you end up for from the driver's championship. You know Le One Seo racesas well: Yeah actly, yeah, OOE, two British ones and neco stepped in for anbut yeah very impressive to you from racing point. As you didn't raise agood question who had the better Om a plan, a racing point is a tough one.I'd say racing point just because I had lot o expectations, but anthing theydid test pretty fast in preseason. So I think everyone's expectations quicklyadjusted for racing point, but I'll...

...still, probably just give it to racingpoint. Next, it's bit of a laugh that me Os fi day,onthe standings. With ten points they can yow rusten Ro John Paman ThatisByfro. If they did average points pet race, I wonder where it sits. BCAUS,that's good form. Ten points in two races: The yeah. Next year they aretransitioning to Aston Martin. Once again, the Mercedes engine soll beInteresteng to see how they do. Ther they've picked up SAB vessel to replaceSur, Jo Parris, which is interesting, going to be interesting to see. IfParis can learn that red bull seat. Hopefully he does because a s we justmentioned. He does not deserve to be seadless for this season. Wel. We don'twant to lose thim to another sport of any kind. So yet si Joe's absolutelykilled of the years stroll serviceable year. Nothing special coup, a coupledecent races, but yeah t over all thdefinitely IV, acked unneath, Paris just got theboys to a hundred nonety five points, yeah exactly or absolutely killed it al right. Next upwe have Reno. If we just did racing point, I'l have to imagine repl redbol.There is another stounding with ar forgot, ther all right red ball, Youre,the redbull man name. What did you make of the yea a lot of highs and loers think itsprobably one of the most the more inconsisted ten to the pactially from Mr Ia, the Abon again good performances, shoten Fort,is matxes as fast unless you Daneft whic, you did quite a few timesracially, especially in the second half of the year. Yeah still end up withtwenty four in points. What can you say, however, Paim Som Maxthisis Issasan, obviously win on the weekend.Popotition tod was incredible to watch Itas pretty pretty part with Thaut,listen to the team radio, but Il Bout. A hundred five points finishing behindCara, Ricado, Paris- probably not where I wanted to seehimself proice, definitely put his seed up for grabs two podiums I mean. Obviously there is a good chance at the car wasbuilt for maxs and you don't really know how good that caw was. If someone else sat in it in the yearwould have been interesting to sae if Yeah Tas Teo something that the call upafter his incredible start, because obviously Max is just a differentbeaste, but I've got a sneaky. Supishet alrbandrives NAST, yea, tin, no min even mom, more crack or Buti. Think for the constructors.Second was always wealy going to be much. TAT probably, would have liked tochallenge mytadies a bit more at the start of the year, but I think once they realized thatMersees was unbaitable pretty much. I think secondsjust probably bi a Borinneu for them justknowing that they had second and yeathat makes on the rest of the teamso up and down here. For the American yeah,I think Max showed his frustration af few races that he just couldn't reallyget around the Mercedes but yeah in the end pretty good year from him. He wouldhave finished above bothouses if it wasn't for he's like five or sixretirement so helr, because he was only nine points behind him and Bot orcerinly retired from one race. So I m fair to say Max out droke bodast thisyear, which is probably what wed what we were hoping for in the preseason BS,still a long way from Lewis, but I...

...think a lot of that comes down to thecar and hopefully next year the Gapkan Titan, but with whoever the Merkdrivers are. Obviously you want to see Louis stillin the sport by like a can't lie, be interesting to see Mersedes a Leuis, Hamilton, Lis macetes,but in now happen pretty sure is like residing this weekend or something soyeah an Hekil, the bag, yeah so fair play, but hopefully Nax culd once againget closer to challenging them. But Yeah it's pretty impossible task at themoment, but yeah he's doing the best. You can really- and if you just keepwrapping up top three positions, an the driver's championship. It's pretty hardto criticize him so yeah fair play to Max Alex Yeah. You'vebasically said it all with album a little bit o below what we would havebeen expecting but yeah. Hopefully he gets another crack ot it pretty crazyto think either. Hemor Paras is going to be seatless going into next year,but oh to be cool to yeah O. I don't knowlike if I, if I'm honest, if I a D to choose who gets to see it od hope,Paris, because album's still very young, so you can always come back where Ithink if Paris doesn't get a seat here, even though he absolutely killed itthis year, he is starting to get on his career, but yeah good luck to ever wins that sat.It's always a tough one right against Max every weekend. UTYEAH hundred percent agree with youvery inconsistent you from rebel, but still pretty solid, to comfortably wrapup that second spot Er Reno Nar, probably whet they consistent. Actually, notreally. I thought they were, but not really. Ricardo was actually veryconsistent. Almost on with the radar Ti, Thoug fiftenight in points had a pardium depto to accatint yeah,to pain e, an stoke with that after breaking the traout with Reno, be good excited to see him in the carnext year, but this year wish good good from danning very impressive, reallysix points vomenttarror, who cas top three drivers of the yearyeafor Menasan, probably everyone, especially that second half is prettyincredible. Agan Sixty two points probably would have tet, probablyliterally thought is in for a couple more points than that: Yeah Gee Constructors, Fifth Bank for Aborfifty points, probably Sai, Tho, didn't expect at start. You yeah that'll HAEthatsure. I think that probably would have mean a bit. Thet would have been determined to tryand catch Reno, not Reda. Sorry, racing point and e can show o this Buta felt abit short, but I think probably points Ho thoughty stock dene season.Thot expecting you know, try to push the top top three cars which the did pretty well Danny Rick was flying. Ithink he'll be the drivers next year, ICAN Danny Wich,pushing top five top four again in h in the orange car, so lit exciting, butpretty pretty decent net for retal. I thought yeah hundred ercent and improvement on lastyear, but nothing incredible like I probably would have expected them toout with fulamd racing point, but then not beat Forari and they've done theopposite of those two. So probably a past season from Reno they probably bea little bit disappointed in with their own expectations, I'd guess, but fromthe public's expectation. I think they did pretty much what we expected nextyear. Obviously Danny Rick leaving to McLaren Theyre, bring in Fortman Champ,Fenanda, Lonzo and the is it Alpon or out pain, I'll get itsouron. Yes is thene, you team name, so it'll be Interesteng to see how they go.

I definitely do think they a ceilinglike I don't think they can reach as high as o mcclaren or something butyeah, probably just another solder from them mix year. If IDI DRINIS fetaside at ricing points and the clins outstanding seasons,Pretty Po Bia DEAM light on Reno. I were literally couple right literally afew good rates off bating racing point. Clan Ou know things when ther warshating pretty preimpressive but E. I think those thirteen breaking through the thexexotetionCarpota Dam, FO, heas, yeah yeah, that's Ow, that's just factslike yeah, ive, Gren o have actually been siped there, but yeah they can copit but yeah, pretty pretty stokstinvewfrom them. Ricardo put in an asolute shift, but yeah just Holdi. As you said,all right last we've got Williams. I believe we have touch on every team.Now Williams like don't really need to spend too much time Inh. This dew e, like le TF, didn't do much at all nooffense. For me, almost EPAs, I moolize RIGHTI UST IN YO other way.This no atways one point, but a pointless season really is just goin tobe under expectations. You would have thought your one one race, evensthinking it nine or ten or something, but I think they be pretty pretty cutwith tha zero for the yeah. I think yeah. I think they almost deserved toour school harth. To be honest, but yeah. That's kind of disappointing theydidn't get thet George definitely took a few steps forward in his development.This season, though, here as was regularly beading the houses andpushing the out Romaios and even further beyond that and Yeth in, like even qualifying hewas recadly qualifying in fourten Fifteenh when, like I think mostdrivers would be lucky to escape the back of the Groud with that car. SoYeah Great Year from George an the TV first yeunf one. As you mentioned a lotof eleventh finishes, so it would have been good if he could have been thehero and got a got a few points, but yeah, probably exactly what we expectedfrom Olens, probably the none that was least mentioned by the commentator. ChaYeah Yeah, really good good two mentions groat theEA yeah. He was too far away so like he was never involved in any ofthe crashes either so yeah yeah, pretty boring yeuif eal meanis Hes mentions athe haver dn I fish yeah ye had to be a few retirements butyeah. I don't really remember Anyen spectatively, but yet that's probablythe only thing we need to touch on with with Williams George had a pretty goodyear n t yeah part from that. There's not really much else to mentionprobably a little bit disappointing that they didn't. You know, get threeor four points or something like that: Maybe even beaten half, but not not too much La expecing, the back end of theCONSTRUCTO bit Silywin Yo, saying three or four points: Toside Yeah. It's likelike one three kind of couple races so like the difference is like one carcrashing in front of you and an you coming non so yeah, it's prettyIvosible, pretty small things, small margins, all right, I RECKAN! That'sall! We've got for the teams. Now I shoull be qickfully. Just go team ofthe rapid fire wit talk through all the teams, but if you had to warder team ofthe year who you going with jeezis tough, I think an oneble mengine is the Sayes justbecause I would just obviously way too git. But I can't begiven the thing that I think it's pretty Mu clan and razingpoint...

...and I think tnow, it's too top to youcan argue both ways. I think and then probably have alphattalery third yeah.Just if I'm eliminating the states out of the conversation of the Affo Tarryfirn and then the raising point wit clariny Cannoli Yo, on on a good dayfor each team. So I think it'd be stiff. METO soldly, an oute e team over theother for Homan a great year, but I think those tro definitely wereinfollos above the rest of the teams in terms of bridging expectations. Yeah,that's definitely the top for though, in my opinion, gracing Wan mcclarandmercees out towery, like I've, actually probably struggled to name if his bestteam the year but yeah those for great years and yet definitely racing point.Mcclaren definitely broke out. As F one teams this year driver of the top threebest drivers, three drivers who impress you the most you can do ia, vestasexpectation or just in general who we live here I mean I'm taking lowir setwo, do ten say hes. I play fom tos out because I think just shows hew goodies.It really is contention for the do talk, an Neen, a team, ves, true maccrerinand I'm sure the old school had fine drivers had a argument fot some others,but I wasn't involved in that Sucko SOM apartly all of her folks, but are parestop three for sure car cowers. I think Charles Te Clarsdefinitely top three wit thinin that Levon that he was driving. Ninety EIGpoints, Wir Yearas, pretty pretty impressive, SOI'm, saying Paris, Wet Clar, Jeesan notink is a there's. A battlefor between, like third sixt like best drives on the EUCAN say: Danniyn Rickwas Faling Matxes, always fast, Pierre Gasli, I guess name theyprobably. I should have mentioned he's, probably third or fourth in terms ofbreakout years, but even you know George Russell. Itwas. It was driving fast and at Lenon, but just the car as holding him back,yeah yeah. I think I think Parres Leclar gasly, probably in my eyes, in most ofthese yeain terms of Shit, they'r Dong, pretty well yeah, so yeah I did my top five votes for everyrace and so I'l just base my decision off that so yeah ghastly number oneHableton Hamin second, but yeah, as you mentioned, not really worth incudinghim. Lando actually got into spots and yeah visdabin came forth once again,though, not really worth mentioning him, and then the Clayr came fifth, so yeahI'd say: Ghastly Nas, the Claer but yeah Paris and Ricardo's consistencydidn't really get rewarded in like a week to week, analysis sorof situation.But if you take a step back from the whole year, they obviously killed itbecause they were just consistently in that top ten top top sic sort of spot,but yeah the big ghasly stray it the year froday season, so yea singlehandthey put Alphitarry on the back and made them one of the best teans at theYEARAS. Well, I think he's enough. The season wasabet, that's true Acassy, but may because we just expect Im, then to be.You know: Top servage, a probably dapanes the highlight of Yis but yeahincredible season in that car, obviously outshon coreer, but a longalonglong way, but yeah. It was exciting as much as itwas boring to see in the say, he's kind of walking every week the rest of e,the battleswer. So it's super exciting yeah. I like it AK yeah. It was a greatseason and don't want to dwell on the nigaves too much. But if you had togive a worse team of the year or most...

...disappointing versus, like expectationwho are you going with neo, I'm looking at the groom, Forari,yeah, thesy Lye, but knowing say from halfway through the Ohi een? Do I kind of it's got I for orhalf I think, Yeah Ery, Hart Ferarian in the Bontra teams, or probably Goowhat they're expecting yeah and the Williams kind of you didn'texpect him to have a point finish, so you could say that it's kind of kind of around their mouth,but half three points are probably a lot less than what they're hoping forAlphra Maya, really soodn have any expectations to them andthen proviously for r sixth is like unheard off. So Thi'll, probably bit at bit cut with how that went this year,but yeah for sure probably foraaris going to be the one. Doesn't it yeahfor ou it's going to be the one also think red bills worth mentioning justprobably not vesis my expectations but versus their expectations. I'm surethey would like to challenge Mercedes a bit more, the Sher but yeah Ferai, andthen I know we crap on them a lot but second place, probably half justbecause I was expecting them to kind of bounce back from a few down years andapperform theyare for Omaio and stuff, but they didn't so and what mostdisappointing drivers lush worst driver. This is time you just say seve say Thi. I think saidI wa Palin Ed to is in the mentions. He had a few goodraces, our on so maybe touchstiff Bo wo, as is actually getting a mentionfrom me. He's pretty low in my job as horts he's like Y he's like twelve andhe's driving Al is comparing more your stron opares ProisTu, as if Youo guys that have been dogged by their Teamat, like even kivyout ovses on Ghasly yeah. They all look pretty bad just because their teammatekilled it but yeah thats. Sad. If I had to pick one like, I O, we should Hav orher, but I'd probably have to say no sed to no life. The manhe's growing atme and I greaty still in it fon yeah but yeah. He probably comparing to Charles how childs asdriving that the red car was so er was always you know just a fewPAGPL onit yeah, it's pretty pretty weird, to see seven a Ferar, just cominlike thireen fourteen every week by t in to go used to it by the end which,as BIS, worrying for them, but yeah sadly said probably the mostdisappointing driver, thyear, Butyeah Er's. Definitely a few worth mentioning,but yeah, that's really d! You WANTTA quickly say who you think will fillthose last two seats on the Groud, so the MERSATES and the red bull seats areleft, Doyou have any theories or any wishes. I think Lewis is just he's pretty much in nothing. Ainga miracle. That's happen to him not to end up in that state and if he wasn'tin that sat he would be a rebel. I think I don't think attends not goingto asign him. I think redbull. I think as much as Paris deserves it. I thinksomeone's telling me that albonds is hanging around abother crack to prosepoint yeah for not sure I pretty crazy, O Pais Ye, we said tots par is not pick up asafe for sure, especially after what I's just proven to to the game. Ter Fon hes are hes fast, so he sad in Oat, especiallyin a cart like red bolln yeah. My but...

...dream situation would probably be thehulk in the Mirsedes and Paris in the Redbull, but obviously obviouslyHamilton's going to resign, and then I do think Albon will probably get given the NodoParis, which is very stiff on Paras, given these just have the best of hiscareer but Onare, pretty tough industry and there's only twenty jobs available,yeah r talking about as of the best yeah but yeah. That's what we've gotfor you today, panats Goit, to go, play some golf and bewer we're Goin toGeiagh up to fifty yard bombs, down t down the middle of the fairway, but UmYeah Ben next to me not M, not my fat but yeah Bein, a pleasure to actuallyChan Aout, a different sport for a change, obviously loved the NFLepisodes, but good to be back talking about all sports and F one inParticularto ben a good year.
