It was Heidfeld and Webber at Monaco GP 2005 who got double Williams podium.

As Formula One 2014 has come to an end my interest in F1 also has come to an end as well. I started watching F1 back in 1988 for some reason and since then I enjoy the sport every year until the 2011 season started. That year the sport introduced artificial elements that only hampered real skilled drivers. I was hoping the guys who run the sport were smart enough realized it was only damaging the sport and swiftly rectify the issues but they kept going without looking back and we still have that. While the sport gone the wrong… Read more »

Personally I don’t think JB is going to Porsche, I reckon Porsche will go with : Lieb Dumas – Confirmed Full season Jani Bernhard Webber – Confirmed Full Season Hartley Tandy` Cristensen – Third car for Le Mans. Pilet/Lietz. Can’t see Button at Porsche, can see him in LMP1, possibly with Nissan or Toyota (dependent on if a seat becomes available at Toyota) but not Porsche or Audi. More opportunity to be in for a season then, rather than Le Mans 24 only. I know the 24 Hours of Le Mans is the race you enter for, really but I… Read more »

Well I was wrong, but hey, I’m happy I was, Hulk :D

Either Carlos Sainz Jr or Alex Lynn at Toro Rosso alongside JEV. Both are part of Red Bull’s young driver programme, Alex is GP3 champion, Carlos is Renault 3.5 champion. Alex is the older of the two, spent longer in junior formula but it’s one or the other. Likely Sainz if I’m honest.

ugh, my brain isn’t working today. Alongside Verstappen. You know what I meant ;-)

Heidfeld was runners’ up and Webber took third for that Monaco GP

I haven’t gotten to listen to the podcast yet, and due to online resources it’s been years since I opened this thing, but I just had a weird client request that caused me to use Soundtrack Pro and I suddenly realized… you just picked the first jazz song that was listed for pass of the race didn’t you Todd?

1. Suddenly, I’m listening to National Lampoon’s “Vacation”. 2. I think the better question is “Why was crowd-funding allowed in Formula 1?” 3. Nico needed the “Hand of God”. Got nothing instead. Rather anti-climatic. Hamilton, on the other hand, got the right spot at the right time and he was off like a rocket. 4. At least Massa was trying, as was Bottas. Give ’em props for that. Probably a couple of honorable mentions for Drive of the Race. 5. I suspected that RBR brought out their big gears once they knew that they were out of parc ferme. 6.… Read more »

If you look at kmag on Hulk onboard he dive bombed Hulk just about forcing him off so he deserved the fight back in the crappy left right corner. I thought these kind of penalties were gone and deemed racing incidents very inconsistant stewarding.

Did you miss Will Stevens fighting off Alonso’s pass due to advert breaks?

After his first pitstop Alonso came out behind the Caterham. With DRS enabled down the straight Alonso pulled past Stevens, only for Stevens to pull level ahead going into the braking zone. The Ferrari was somewhat better under braking and Alonso completed the overtake, but I thought it showed some determination from the driver in his first GP to make Fernando work for the position. Either that, or just how slow Ferrari was in a straight line.

Loved Fake Charlie’s comment re: car stopped on freeway on-ramp. Reminded me of when we first moved to the Seattle area from San Diego. Needless to say, we were rather used to ‘getting on with things’ as it pertains to driving. Well, not so much here in WA. The first week we were here, my wife was driving and accelerating up the on ramp to I-90 in Issaquah. Right in front of her was a WA State Patrol car. As they were both approaching the merge point the bloody cop car slowed down to 25 MPH, *from 60* . .… Read more »

Well, technically, TX law (I’m sure it’s the same in other states) require that the people on the ramp yield the right of way to the main lanes. Out here, however, it’s a slightly different philosophy: You don’t slow down, ever. Therefore, you keep moving no matter what happens, because you don’t want to cause an accident behind you, and the guys on the main lanes must pull over, because you don’t want to be the one causing the accident on the on-ramp. The general point is: If you were there when the accident occurs and you didn’t give way… Read more »

Actually Todd, I thought this weeks broadcast was much improved.
I particularly enjoyed the lengthy Jenson Button photo montage they had their intern put together to show whilst the race was on.
I always wonder why other broadcasters have to show so many of the laps.

Go NBC!
