I was muted. Sorry, Michael.
Okay, so what if everyone, I'll just do that again? What's up, everyone? Welcome in here to the Formula One Grand Prix on the next network.
Uh, the Secure Grand Prix.
Michael Moore, ski Andrew, former here. Bahrain.
Uh, here, Andrew, take us through the track.
Okay, so it's the same track is last week, but we're doing the outer track layout, so we skipped turns 5 to 12, and we go just around, so it's almost in an oval shape.
So we only have 11 corners, seven to the right and four to the left.
And this time it will be the C four, the C three and C to the C four being the fastest and the softest.
But they also degrade the fact.
So if you choose those, you have to make another pit stop.
All right, um, here and tell us about the tires before we go to the grid retired.
So the C four would be again, like I said, the fastest boat wearing out, and then we have the medium compound tire, which is 40.
6 seconds slower but it will also degrade less fast.
And you may only have to make one to to stop.
And then we have the hard tired to see to the second hardest higher in the Pirelli range.
And you may be able to pull off a one stop hard to mediums if you so choose in this race.
But you will have a very big **** paste disadvantage.
I'm people get walking through the grid here to the grid.
Alright, so in the first row, it's gonna be the Mercedes duo, but not the usual Mercedes do.
Ponting's he's gonna be in first in pole position on and Russell.
George Russell, who's replacing Lewis Hamilton from the Williams team, is gonna be in second Max for stop it and Charlotte Claire make up the second row and three and four.
The Red Bull and Ferrari, Sergio Perez at five and Joo Chiat at 16, Um, Racing point car and the Alfa Atari.
Our next row row number four is Ricardo and signs Carlos Sainz, Daniel Ricardo, Renault and McLaren.
Um, then we've got PR ghastly of the Avatar Ian Lance Stroll at nine and 10 in the fifth row the answer.
You're getting some feedback from your part.
Um eso Can you just mute yourself or something like that? Right? Eso then we've got Vettel and G of a Nazi in our next spot.
Uh uh And is it okay for you? You just under your okay? You're good.
Uh, yeah, the video.
Still a bit Laghi, but you should be your tuck. Your fine.
Alright, so asleep.
We can hear you.
All right. Vettel, Giovanna Z at 13. 14.
Then we've got Lando Norris and Kevin Magnuson.
16 from Linda Nora s.
So he's starting down in 19th place.
Okay, that's right.
The TV and, uh, it can, uh, taken replacing.
Well Ah, Williams.
Alright. He's replacing George Russell and Williams.
Recommend Fittipaldi, uh, in 19 or technically Norris in 19.
So that means 18 and 25th quality polity in house.
And for Grosjean, we've got, um at a taken number 89 for Williams, replacing Russell.
He's 25 years old.
He's a British Korean.
He's the 89 car.
892 2nd qualifying time.
That was 17 and pH over the policy number 51 replacing Grosjean for the Hostin 24 years old.
He's Brazilian, 55.
4 to 6 second qualifying time.
And, of course, George Russell replacement Lewis Hamilton.
So the formation lap is underway.
No passing in this formation lap.
There are now just getting all thio, you know, good in terms of lineup how they're gonna line up, Yeah, warming up their engines and warming up the tires.
All right, so let's take a look at the predicted ****ed off strategy.
Um, chances are you're gonna be making a two stop strategy.
You can either go medium hard, medium and pit around lap 22 lap 50 on your to stuff.
Or you could go soft, hard, medium, and go again around lap 22 then around if you're starting from the top 10 and you can put on those brand new set of soft eso if you make it all the way through to the last round of qualifying, you have to start on the same part off the same physical tired that you didn't qualify.
So those ties are already slightly warrant.
But if you start outside this up top 10 and then you don't have to.
So if you can put on those prints off tires do really well right off the line on.
Then again, just making all there to stop and then just go hard to media.
I am just like the people around you would be doing.
If they're starting on the medium in the top 10, I think you're gonna have a significant advantage.
So look out for the people starting 11 and 12.
I believe That's via and Perez.
All right, here are the drivers standings.
Hamilton Bottas for stopping Ricardo Perez declare Norris signs all about gas.
Did you see that, Andrew Hastie between Alright, Yeah, the constructor standings something This is the constructor standings.
Look like yeah, on.
Look for that George Russell.
The Williams driver will now be racing for mercy.
So he's going from the worst car in the field to the best car on the field.
So he's currently in 20th and Dr Standing.
But if he gets a good result today, he may be ableto jump a bunch of people in the driversstandings and bringing us significant amount of money for his Williams team on really improve that.
We're getting ready to begin here in Bahrain as the safety car pulling in behind the ****rs.
They're all lining up into their grid spots.
Um, uh, The final cars air coming in.
Bottas Also for stopping the Claire, per sq at record of science.
Ghastly stroll, Okan Album, Vitalogy Vanessa Norris Magnets on the TV Bacon or reckoning and physicality.
They're getting ready, The lights are going off and lights out and away we go now George, Russell and Bata still in the first two spots.
No movement yet as now Stroll is trying to pass.
But here comes for stopping on Russell, Russell's and Sparks.
That's not good.
Now Russell will get first place is because comes into second for stopping tries to get past bottles on the outside, but also hold them off.
It's still Russell number one.
And here comes we're stopping.
And that is a Perez, um, who are catching up on? No, we've got a car.
Alfa Romeos off.
Oh, now ah, card Trump.
That's a raising point.
That's Perez and another crazy, hectic start.
Here comes the, uh, yellow flag.
There's never stopping yellow flag.
There's the yellow flag.
Verstappen, our safety cars out first left carnage at Bari for the second time in two weeks.
Look at the Ferrari in the Red Bull.
They're both front left Tires are just toast.
So let's take a look at our standing up now Stopping And Charlotte. Claire.
All right, here's our standings.
Right now where we stand currently asses the safety car.
Although this is obviously not as big of Ah, we're not gonna have as big of, ah spot as we did.
Um, a zbig a last people's a red flag with session car will stay on track, but it will be essentially just a Z.
You could see Max your staff and very upset.
Claire E replied that to see what happened.
All right, let's take a look at our, um, standings right now.
Number one is George Russell up one spot.
We all love to see that until we can keep that going.
Number two valid.
Terry Bon Thomas Down one.
Carlos Sainz went up five spots.
Really? And start from him up to three.
Then Ricardo up three to a spot four.
And here comes Perez to the pit because he also sparked up.
I'm surprised he didn't, you know, go out.
Yeah, I'm surprised to see the offer.
Um, I'm not pitting.
He had a very big spinning.
Oh, maybe it looks like that from a pit crews getting ready.
Is he coming? All right, So let's take a well, Another four dropped a match for staff and master staffing.
Not able to get between two cars, and he has to hit his brakes.
That's really sets him back a little bit.
And that allows Sergio Perez to get a look around the outside.
So then we're going.
There's a battle for second between bought Task Perez and Charlotte Claire for a little bit as we're riding in George Russell already way out in their Daniel Ricardo, even getting on that for a little bit as we go down into the braking zone, a present and there they go and they try to accelerate too fast and get back onto the track.
And then they just go into a while.
I was very avoidable for mattress happened.
I'm surprised to see him make that kind of mistake of a veteran driver.
I'm very surprised to see that out of him.
Do you think we're going to see some penalties? And if so, which ones aside? There's They're showing the very few penalties awarded on the first lap, especially if it's just something very minor like that.
Oh, there, Uh, perfect angle as we ride onboard.
Max for staffing does everything perfectly.
That's out of the way.
And then he's just riding his brakes.
And, yeah, I misjudged him earlier.
There's nothing he could have done.
I misjudged him.
Yeah, e don't think there will be, but if anything, it would probably be a penalty on Shah LeClair.
I don't like it because anything because he kind of makes a little move here.
It's kind like what happened with less Pierre Gas.
I'm not here guys like Daniel Viet last week with someone making a sort of kind of move, like trying to go up the inside and then just taps him just like that.
It's just like what happened with the other racing point last week.
He, like, kind of makes a move that goes to straight and doesn't turn his steering wheel enough, so I'd be surprised to see a penalty.
But if anyone it would be on straw. LeClair.
Great move by Perez, though.
Staying up, flipping around.
He really think he did everything he could.
He's backwards for that.
Like that's fantastic special events and then to not Max for staffing to not get Sergio correct.
That was perfect as we see Christian Horner, the Red Bull team principal very upset with that.
Uh, he just had nowhere to go.
Charlotte Claire essentially ended three people's race, his own feel Perez and then Max for staff and who had to get out of the way.
Still in, I believe.
Oh yes, President.
Still in your right.
So it's just too so All right, let's look now at the standings from the big from 1 to 18, it's Russell followed by bottles.
Carlos Sainz really has the fastest time.
Actually, the TV does, uh, here uh, at four.
Fiat six Stroll seven.
Ghastly eight Elkann nine.
Vettel 10 Norris 11.
Alabama on 13 Movie 14 Juve Nazi 15 Taken, uh, 16th Topology, 17 Reckoning and 18 Perez.
And no, the Claire.
How about Carlos Sainz? Uh, far that a sweater wearing lap four now safety cars taking us through three laps.
Great part by, um, science Right on.
That's very surprising to see, as lots of people thought Max for staffing could easily have won this race if he got a good launch.
Like, uh, if we're taking a little bit about replay, he was trying to go on the inside off George Russell and also the inside of Valerie Bottas.
So he was trying to go right down the middle of the two of them, but they were sliding in intentionally.
I wouldn't give out a penalty for dangerous driving there.
They didn't know that he was there.
One driver cut off.
But like God, you can't have communication with your teammate Valerie Balthus did not know George Russell would cut him off.
And George Russell did not know that Valerie boxes so perfect.
We're getting on board with Master. Staff it again.
So as you look, he's off to a fantastic once.
He could have taken the lead down to the first corner, but then they both come in a little bit to the inside and then just take it with nowhere for him to go.
Very good awareness to press that brake pedals to not crash, then see Val three bottles and after stopping having a little bit of ah, drifting session there and as we see them going down, this will show like there's nothing he could have done like he goes in.
It's solid, clear, very late on the brakes.
He after staff can turn to go on the inside, gets a little bit of understeer and has to go straight into the very You have no choice to eat it.
Yeah, Verstappen was, uh was really, really upset.
And I mean, really, because when you think about it with no Hamilton, it was Bottas and Verstappen race to lose If it wasn't one of those two and I know for stopping, they seemed so confident was such a fast track That's for stopping specialty.
If we're stopping, if they blockhouse, winning it be for stopping.
Okay, If if they didn't cut him off, master staff would have taken the lead into the first corner and he never would have looked back.
We got I feel for Max there. He had nothing.
He could have done nothing he did wrong.
Uh, that's that's tough.
Alright, Safety cards about Thio.
I believe we're in lap five, about to enter lap six.
Coming off soon.
I believe the car is already off and all that, uh, remember no passing behind the safety car.
Although they're all women at their tired squiggling on Aziz, they are yet to reach turn one.
I guess they're not gonna take this.
So, um, ranking in? Yeah, they're just They're just finalizing some stuff on in the standings.
George Russell has never finished higher than 11th place.
That was, um, earlier in the year on.
But he's right now in first racing in that Mercedes replacing you know, the King Louis Hamilton.
So, Russell starting different now in opposition.
So what? That means they're all going to stay behind the safety car.
So if you guys gonna go a little bit slower is that they're all bald on top back to the grid.
But what they're gonna do, they're just gonna be going slowly.
The safety car is going to go out, and then George also gets the when they can speed off, and then we're gonna race, and we're not gonna have another standing start.
But look, for Carlos Sides to overtake protest and maybe Russell as well, because that McLaren has very good acceleration.
And Carlos Sainz is they took a test of the year.
I believe he was third in reaction time.
And look, George Russell taking, uh, saying like, uh, let's take it so the full speed and there they go.
All right, here we go into laps.
Six is still also followed by Bottas, then saying, so far, no passing as they're all going into, uh, the grid part Aziz there.
Keep going Fast lap.
They're all having very fast laps.
And now here comes Botox on the outside of side Saints past him for a second.
And on the outside, things will take second.
Wow, that's hard to fight him off, But it's gonna be Carlos side.
Who will get that second place followed by boss here.
Signs almost his wheel of blew up.
Well, he didn't blow up his well smoked up.
Bontemps took him over.
Come on, top of a hill.
Miracle on first.
Now there's a battle for second between signs and bottles.
That's when we're gonna keep an eye on, followed by Ricardo and four thank theon stroke actually Okan Vettel Norris to wrap up the top 10.
It's still volunteers as they head into those is the exact turns at 4545678 And then the just to let you know, say it again.
Uh, they called the chicane like C h I c.
All right into the chicken.
Now battle for second.
Ricardo enters that as we take a look at Stroll, he's surrounded by the two Alfa Atari's as fastest lap Just recorded by George Runkle.
1 60 lap there as all the cards going really fast into turn one.
The turn for incidents, uh, will be investigated after the race.
As here comes Norris on Vettel and Norris will pass Vettel toe grab ninth now another fastest lap.
But the place just grabbing What? A race from him? Yeah.
Norris! Wow! Okay, Clarence, how about them? Clarin North and signs both so far, with excellent starts up to nine and three.
Still s so far, uh, either of them are done.
I think North could finish in the top five by the end of this right.
McLaren's have fantastic straight line speed this for any team that this would help.
It definitely helps Mercedes.
They have the best engine and Williams Nicholas Latifi already off into 13th place off Farrar.
I said now for males will not be doing well today.
Those Ferrari power and or not.
And, as I say, a take a right.
Yep. Alex Alben.
Well, here comes out there now it's 01 album Fighting for that spot album had it.
Now it's back toe, Claire or Vettel.
Not like Claire.
Excuse me, Vettel and Alban LeClair is out of the right Right? As I say that.
But that was, uh, a driver.
Sebastian Vettel, one of the greats of this sport.
So I mean, some to do with the car we got right on with Norris now great overtake of Vettel.
Actually, Norris has had a brilliant race to start.
McLaren really happy with performers so far.
So we take a look at Perez with the, uh all right.
I bought Jack Aitken that he just overtook, but I had George Robert E slapped with a 58 flat and taking the order one more time.
We have George Russell Val three ball testing Carlos Sainz breaking up the podium.
Places that we have.
Ricardo Caveat Stroll Ghastly AQ Khan Norris and battle to finish up the top 10 than in the non point finishers will be Alex, Alabama.
Very disappointing weekend from him.
Sergio Perez for him to climb up Kevin Madison.
Uh, Antonio drove a Nazi Jack can get me writing it and Pietro fit a polity.
Fittipaldi's last he's filling in for, um, George Runkle and the Willingham car as now an Alfa Cory is trying to pass a Williams, that is You are right.
I believe that is, uh, it's breaking in and, you know Oh, that's the TV and juvenile.
Yes. Wrecking and just passed.
He passed. Taken? No, he didn't.
He Now, now it's like 14 Drove a Nazi writing.
And 15, 16, 17, 18 and retrofit Apology Way back there.
18 and 17 seconds behind. George Russell.
In between strolling and ghastly, you're Yeah, but you 0.
Now we're gonna be watching that closely.
The Qatari and Racing Point car eso Let's take a look as they head into Turn nine, they're gonna go all the way down to turn 10.
They've got a lot of space down there on a three way battle for that's 10th place, a Alexander album on parole one Middle and caresses over the Middle.
Yeah, A is gonna try a bottom turn, and it doesn't look like it's gonna happen that raising point car much better now.
That raises point eyes after Alec for album, and, like I said, Sergio Perez, don't count him out of the race by any means necessary.
He is a fantastic driver fighting for his.
Currently, he does not have a contract for next year.
But I think if he outperforms Alex album today, which he's already doing, and I think he is about to pass him in a few laps, he will easily take his seat.
That Red Bull's Alexander album has severely under under performing and as he is not fantastic this year.
But Sergio Perez already has two podiums almost have one last week before his engine failure.
He is a fantastic driver, and I think he deserves that.
Read will speak much more than Alexander album does.
E would agree with that.
We're grand Prix here on the next network.
Michael Marks the answer.
Foreman running lap 12 of 87.
George Russell is currently our leader.
He's filling in for the sick.
Lewis Hamilton, the king of Farmer, the 11 of the not the greatest driver of all time.
Bottas is nearing Russell's.
They had into Turn one.
Let's take a look at the leaderboard now.
How it looks like a process, not e saying that beat.
Oh, wow! On four and five, Who is that? It's red.
Is that up? That's not veiled because Vettel racing right now. I think it's just a malfunction.
It very well could, because it doesn't look like there's anyone off that.
That's where the Claire went off.
Maybe that state just didn't move him.
Yeah, maybe they have a clear does not.
Yeah, all right.
So, Ricardo Vietnam, but off of poor that there's a very close race.
6 seconds between each other, Um, as they're showing you signs, followed by Ricardo at three and four.
Now, um, as they go down the hill and into the next turn.
Still, George Russell, two seconds ahead of voluntary Bottas Last 14.
Now there, heading Thio, Turn one.
Past pit lane A.
It means if you press too hard on the brake pedal there like a certain point past where if you push it past that, you're gonna lock your brakes up, wrote Most modern cars have something called antilock brakes, meaning that won't happen.
But if you press your breakdown too far and you turn the wheel, your tires will stop spinning and it will shave apart.
Your are all to make it not a perfectly smooth circle, so it will shave off and cause your car, not pleasant vibrations and make your car slower in the corner is not enough grip, and you be able to go with fast into corners.
So that means you'll probably have to put a little bit earlier than his teammate George Russell and maybe everyone else in the field.
Uh huh, yeah, Alex Alba.
I'm really frustrated because right now he's carrying this Red Bull team with no max for stopping.
Uh, he's if the rights and now which there's still eight or there's still 72 laps to go.
But if the rights would and now he did get, he's getting point.
He wants more than points as your son, Perez, who's trying to come up on the album.
He's enduring him.
But here, um, about us and both on the medium tires at two to Bottas number one Russell.
Um, all right, so now we're still watching parades.
At 11, we take a listen in tow.
All right, so the current tires medium medium for the top two that we've all softs from 3 to 7.
Up till 80 Connor Okan medium then Morris at nine has a soft and three straight mediums until 13 Magazines on Soft on the TV had 14, also on soft and three straight mediums up to 18.
Fittipaldi also with a soft So it's pretty even, and bottles and signs in a bit of a Well, actually, it's not even close their, uh, signs in the soft tires.
It's yeah, but sons will have to pit earlier, and he's going slower than now.
This is around the 0.
16 laps where the soft tire start to really wear out, and they're not nearly as soft and at, uh, earlier are so right now.
The media mother should really be pulling away between lap 16, and when they pit, it should be around lap 20 to 25.
They should really be pulling away from them right now, as Bottas is from signs because 4/10 to 2nd, 4/10 of a second every single lap and George Russell puts it another fastest lap.
That's another 58 flat.
But this time it's a 08 just marginally better on.
Like I said, he's on the medium tires.
So right now the media fire owners are at the peak performance of their tires.
They're warm there, right at the soft spot, and they're doing like they're perfect right now in the range.
And, uh, the software are entering downhill.
Like from now on, they're just gonna keep getting worse and worse and worse until they hit and put some new tires on. Yep.
Alright, so it's still are also belittles.
Russell is the fastest laps so far in the day here in the Secure Grand Prix in Bahrain.
Uh, 17 pit windows now open mediums to stop strategy.
Lap 17 out of 87 is what we're in, and we're watching now stroll and ghastly as they head into turn nearing turn hen.
I believe that is um yeah, if you If you turn 10 like if you do well in turn 10, turn 11 just doesn't exist.
Normally you just take it like a average curve around the racetrack.
And Dr Rebroadcast puts in 1/5 off 57 978 taking the fastest lap away from George Russell.
Thio be on right now.
Battle for six Lance Stroll, NPR Ghastly grow of the Racing Point currently has six and his Who's holding six right now, but PR ghastly, uh is good.
5 seconds behind him at seven of Africa Qari album started at Well, now he's playing up two spots as he's coming closer to Lando Norris.
Okay, but Sergio there's only 5/10 of a second behind him, so Sergio Perez may get him in like another straight or a maybe down into the straight actor turned one and two.
But I look at that right on the tail of Alex Alben.
He's gonna get the slips from here.
He's gonna get DRS.
And then he's probably gonna get past him down into the great and into.
I believe that it's for Yep, as Taliban now will.
Still right in between Una, um, Norris and Perez.
Although there's a good battle there were keeping an eye on, uh, those three racing right with each other.
Perez will try to take him on the outside and Alban Well, so far for now.
Keeping for keep in front.
Perez wanted something that couldn't He started fifth.
Perez all the way down for reaching a bad move.
Hey, could have had him down to this corner.
Now Album's gonna try to take album.
Wants to take a Norris, but Norris keeps him off.
Um, anything that helps Sergio Press, because now both of them had to go slow to attack the defense that Sergio Press right back in the mix.
Give him another straighter to giving DRS.
And he'll be right back on the tail.
You could see him just really closing in on the Red Bull, his car.
He's been complaining that his ngentle, that he's getting no power, that he's slow in the streets.
So look for another lap or two.
I know I've been saying that for a long time.
That's because Sergio Perez has been trying to make these small little moves, and they just haven't been working like he needs to just bide his time for a little bit.
Just take it a little slow down to this turn one getting a wide run and then go fly through here.
Don't press the brake pedal to floor it through their get DRS right around now and then he could just really open it up.
How here comes album trying to get over to Morris on the outside, and it will be Quote.
It will be Alban Great passed by Alban, who got to nine.
And Perez has also passed Norris up to 10 now.
Correct 11 Norris And now Perez and Norris are heading at it for spot for uh, what Alex album was trying to do there.
He was trying to put a slower car in between the Red Bull and the Racing Point.
So that way, Sergio Perez would have toe overtake the McLaren before you overtake him.
But Sergio Prez just passed him cleanly and did it relatively easily, and it didn't work.
And now he's still right on the tail and Lando Norris comes into the pit.
Let's watch that pit hope.
Uh, I feel like everyone is, uh go stop by 3.1.
That's not as slow as I thought.
It waas that did not look nearly a hey goes around the outside Can you make it stick down into turn six? I believe that is down six Sergio Perez takes ninth place.
Yeah, Perez, now in ninth place, is ahead into, uh, the final turn of the chicane and down on turn nine over to turn 10.
You have a great job by Stroll or Rather, Perez Passing albums album back down to 10.
Ballot for ninth, though Album and Perez, they're still sticking with that.
That's been a battle. Now for the last couple laps.
Great job there.
By all the all two of the cars to get past Norris, Norris is in the last 44 seconds behind.
We're also the leader. Wait.
34 and five are all separated by only two seconds.
Uh, in between positions three and five.
So all those cars, all they need is one or two good laps, and then they're really in a very close battle right there.
Look at that beautiful move by Alexandra.
All the way on the outside of the track has a really nice run through there.
You can go faster if you go wider, but it's just a little bit of a long way to go.
So not everyone takes it, but he utilized that perfectly and to his advantage and overtakes the slower Red Bull.
All right, um, so it's settled down here.
We've already called double the laps we've called last week.
Uh, e, I think we only call like, yeah, I think.
Oh, yeah, way only called.
So we've actually quadrupled the amount of laps he called last week.
I think we also only called, like, five laps last week.
Yeah, because last week we had a terrible accident with Roman grows on.
Thankfully, he's okay.
He has just announced that he will not raise for the rest of this year, which is very sad to hear because he had already planned on retiring at the end.
So that was the last race of his career.
And that's why Petrofina polities filling in for him at the half and speak of Has they have just signed Nikita Maze Pin and Michael Schumacher.
Michael Schumacher, just one formula to this morning, which is like, That's like the junior class off.
Formula One is kind of like the minor leagues for baseball for and you MLB fans, uh, he currently just one that, and he has earned his seat at Hat, and George Russell says, Please let me know if he's using curves.
I could probably go 1/10 and a half if I can use those eso essentially what he's saying.
If you're going over those red and white, they're called curbs.
Curbs with the K k E R B s, um, makes you faster because you can use mawr of the track and you're going wider.
But it's also not good for your engine control electron ICS like it shakes them, and it just wears them out faster.
All right, we're on with album now, and Perez, as there is still a battle for 10 there and has been for a good part of this race.
Now Val Terry is using more Kerr with George.
Russell is saying so.
George Russell is watching in his rear view to see what his teammates doing us.
His teammate just got the fastest lap of the day.
Let's see the exact time for that.
It's not to come up where it is.
Not even 1000 previously had a nine.
I'm now he has a 978 He improved by 1/1000 of a second.
Uh, that Z close race, remember? He only won by Oh, is it the 2026? Thousands of a second.
So, Like that? Yes, the, uh so that that was a full 10th of a second faster.
So that's closing it in from 1.
The meter shows 1.
Um, looks like Russell is currently expecting that.
Maybe he's trying to go for a faster lap.
Maybe he's starting to use more, Kurt, but yeah, now it's all the way.
After two seconds, be trying for a fastest lap.
They've been trading fastest lap to the entire race.
Yeah, we're back to watching Stroll. Try to get on.
Although he's been unsuccessful so far, behind stroll is pure gas.
He's still, uh, surrounded by the two Alfred party cars.
Um, the Russian got in front of him now.
Taliban is saying we're faster, but we're just not race able.
We're listening on the radio, Um, there in the Red Bull car.
All right, now we're heading into lap 26 of 87 there.
This secure Grand Prix on the next network, Andrew Forman, is to the right of May. I am.
Michael must be here.
Um uh, for any of you wondering where you can watch along with us.
This is currently online on ESPN two.
And for those of you that are wondering about the red zone for the NFL, that will be taking place at four o'clock today.
Josh will be at There are some really interesting game in a four o'clock ran the Cardinals.
I just Well, we have rams cardinals.
That would be a fantastic game.
So make sure you tune in at four.
But if you're already here, just stay along and watch the Formula one currently live on you.
Formula One here yet? Uh, the tire tap four are split top of medium than the three and four have the soft.
So we're on board with rougher.
Russell Russell. Okay.
I didn't see his helmet uh, but yeah.
So here around board of Russell.
Now, who's starting second now? He's first.
Good start from him.
This teammate start behind him if he wins this race.
What a great story that would be.
Yeah, from Williams.
Hey, has the Mercedes Junior driver so essentially what that means to be a Formula One driver? Need lots of experience in a car.
Some people start, it's called carding.
You take, like, go karts and racism when you're 78 years old.
And, uh, if a team find like a Mercedes a Ferrari, any team that's like this if they find you and scout you and think that you do well, they consign you when you're 15 years old, Not much older than we are now.
But on they could do that.
So he was racing for Williams.
That's kind of like the ladies junior team.
They're much slower, not nearly as fast.
Also, not as profitable or have as much resource is well, what they did. Mercy.
I'm an engine and some of their research in exchange for Dr Taking one of their junior drive a year past two years.
That's been George Russell.
So now George Russell taken with the Mercedes because Lewis Hamilton has co vid.
But now they're using John Aitken, the other Mercedes junior driver who they found, and yeah, I would in a car on the grid all the way up until the fastest Carla Grit, qualified second, has never made it into qualifying three.
Which means he has never qualified in the top 10 and has never let a Grand Prix.
And now he's led for a full 29 laps, and he's probably gonna come in for a pit stop soon as Carlos Sanchez box made undercut box means pit right box means pit eso Carlos science against the box box.
Under comes signs onto the pit.
Um, and he's gonna go down into the pit now is the number 10 car Pierrick ghastly? Um, so strolling O'Connell passing that Perez also, um, his teammate has already fiat already picked.
How about a weekend in his first race? He's in 12th right now.
All right, so it was a three second pit for ghastly 2.
5 2nd pit for signs.
Uh, the Al Bukhari? Yeah, actually had a 2.
4 2nd pit, so it was a good 0.
6 seconds slower.
Which is interesting how they had that.
So, um, it's Ricardo now.
Signs is nowhere near undercut range.
So, boss, But this Ricardo needs to respond soon because signs will have fresher and faster tires on.
Stay out like another few laps before signs.
We will pass him.
Just as I say that Ricardo comes into the pit right now has to respond like Carlos Sainz is going down the third straight down into turn 10.
This is gonna be very, very close.
Let's see it, Ricardo, He was flying this lab.
He puts the median tired.
Oh, and it's not have to catch up with 4.
Yeah, that was pretty good, right? Oh, this is gonna be really it's gonna be real.
And Carlos Sainz will stay in the lead.
I stay Ricardo all the way down past Yeah, Yeah, I just had the fastest lap 57.
5 80 as he passes Ricardo, He was in ninth now 40 seconds behind the leader, George Russell.
Dan Uh uh, the Russian driver for Alfa Atari.
As you take a look at the replay gas please.
That was a fantastic lap from Donald via he knew he needed to get about.
He knew he needed to get about two seconds on Daniel Ricardo to get ahead of him.
You knew he had to dio.
He executed. He did it to perfection.
He blew around that laugh and he got ahead of Daniel Ricardo out of pip up.
Well, let's see how long he can stay ahead in your Ricardo, though.
Because Daniel Ricardo's Renno is flying in a straight line right as they head into turn one.
That's what we're watching right now.
Ricardo's got DRS anymore.
Ah, So Norris, at 13, is trying to get to take in which he does.
And Norris will pass a breaking on the inside by Lando Norris to get past Achin the rookie driver, uh, put you sit down to 13 Norris now to 12.
So caveat Ricardo, we're still watching them that nothing has changed here.
Still the fastest lap the day Nobody in the top four has pit yet.
Perez at five has pit as my toss three seconds behind the leader, George Russia.
The closest race right now is Fiat and Ricardo at nine.
And 10, followed by, um, I guess Norris and Eggen at 12 and 13.
Vettel now at seven.
That's actually really close.
Much closer than that is it's Vettel on signs that for seven battle for Vettel, Vettel or Goto the pit now.
And who was Lando Norris? That? Oh no, that was Carlos Sainz.
What often cars do they do? The opposite strategy of the car in front of them.
So if the car in front of the pits, they stay out of the car in front, stays out Late pit and a 4.
5 2nd stop For Sebastian Vettel, that was not a very good stop.
He did not have a good outside of the pit.
And another questioning.
Is that Fittipaldi? Yes, it is.
E, don't think Fittipaldi's pitting right now.
Oh, yes, he is. Never mind.
Fittipaldi and Aching are both pinning on and they're still going on eight and 2.
And for Fittipaldi, we're about to get the time.
There it is, still going on a long pit still going on, uh, passes garages at the end off the lane.
48 on a very bad pit stop.
He spent 27 seconds in pit lane.
All right, Um, 17 seconds.
Right now, Ricardo.
And if strolling AQ Khan can put in a few Really good lacks right here.
Baathists and Russell really on the page.
Because if they pit right now strolling AQ Khan may get in front of them.
So if strolling, strolling icon obviously know that as to Russell and Bottas.
So they're all going to be trying to go hell for leather right here.
They can pull off that way.
Russell could get a comfortable pit stop.
It's still 25 seconds to stroll.
That's cutting it very, very close.
All right, but 7/10 of a second between that and Ricardo as so far, no movement on the standings will obviously update you and I get it.
Vettel, Latifi Juvenile Magnuson achin! Ranking it! And for the pal to the polity have all been lapped by Russell on Bottas.
Uh, kind of live speed 200 over 200 MPH for Daniel Ricardo, Uh is there in a speed trap now? Ricardo, he was trying toe.
Gaon got very close there, but not quite.
Fiat pulls him off.
Ricardo was trying to take the inside as now.
We're taking a look at Ricardo from the driver's seat as he's gonna try toe take the got Just accelerates there, Um, into term, that is that she came.
That's the first part of this.
You can see that was into turn 60 yeah, That's a 56 turn as Ricardo.
The way is at the top, right that we have 10 11 at the bomber on.
Then we do it all again at Bottas Russell medium tires.
Oh, to Ricardo the outward for washing those very closely as they had.
Um, they're gonna pass.
Turn 11 into the turn one DRS on for hard.
So caveats still is ahead of him.
Very, very narrow.
Adam barely had a um so yeah, holds the fastest lap time today, 39 seconds behind the leader, Russell Russell.
Contreras Album plans coming out.
Make up the top 10 here in the Secure Grand Prix with 36 laps in Michael Mercy.
Andrew, former here on the next network, we have 11 Kearns, including a big chicane up on top with four through eight.
And as we watch Ricardo now and think of look at the sky view of the whole lap.
Very nice to see.
Second straight race in Bahrain, A little lap configuration with different.
I'm gonna charge here.
I pointed out for those for you guys to see you before.
It was, like all here in the middle of her stuff.
But right now, this is what it looks like on the outside.
Um, There you go.
So, uh, Lap 36 is where we are right now, about 2.
6 seconds behind the leader behind the leader, Russell.
Um, as the tires air fine.
Russell's tires, it doesn't look like they were hitting incomes.
And here comes your card on Can't No, not quite.
