Everyone Welcome in here to Formula One on the next network. I am Michael Mercy.
That is Andrew Forman.
We're here live for the would be great We Oh, Andrew, you're wearing a bracket and you've got Max happen for you starting in pole position.
Is there any expectation? I would say Look for after staffing to get out very well across the line.
But his Honda Power unit has has been very reliable, but also not very strong.
So look down into Turn Blonde and then later on into the race when he is starting toe, save his tires away and later on into the race as time, whereas along further nursery, just to start catching up.
And I don't think Max will win.
I think he has a shot, but I think it's unlikely.
All right, let's take a look at our starting before we do the starting grid because I haven't pulled up.
Let's let's talk about the track.
Can you tell Tom walk us through the track? Yeah.
So, um, it's 21.
Um, it is a clock was pretending circuits that to me.
Most of the terms are gonna be going to the rights.
That means your front left tire is gonna be graining a lot and what that means.
It's gonna be sliding across the plain and shaving off parts of that tire, so it's gonna cause vibrations and it's not gonna have you go assed fast.
And then the tires that drives you're gonna be using today it's gonna be the softest tires in the Pirelli range.
It's gonna be defined the C four and C three.
Um, the software, the tire, the fact that you can go, but also the faster rate so later on into the rate to the sauce will, uh, lose pace while the mediums and hard will gain pace as they heat up.
But as start the soft is half a sector faster than the medium and around 30.
8 seconds than the hard.
Now let's take a look at our starting grid.
In the first row, we have Max Verstappen of Team Red Bull, followed by voluntary Patas Mercedes.
In our second row, it's Lewis Hamilton and then Lando Norris at three and four and five and six.
We're gonna have Alex Alben from Red Bull and Carlos Sainz from McClaren 78 Daniel Zviad from Alfa Atari.
Um, and it's not usual that he's starting before his Kuwait.
Um And then we have Lance stroll at eight from Racing Point, who finished? Um, third, I believe, um, Pierre Ghastly at nine.
Estermann Occoquan 10.
Then we go 11 Ricardo and the Ferrari teammates follow Ricardo.
That's gonna be LeClair and Vettel.
Then it's gonna be the Alfa Romeo teammates, G even as we write it in at 14.
15 Williams George Russell as it is at 16.
Um his Oh, he's in a hostel.
Oh, he was a housing A Yeah, going a long.
Right? Right, Right.
Um and then we have Latifi porridge and magazine E.
Okay, Yeah, eso.
Now they're going on their formation lap, which is essentially just and to heat up the engine because if they just started the race right away, your tires wouldn't be warm enough to make it into the first turn, and you would just drift and your engine would be at risk of stalling out or uh huh.
There's a hey, where did looting? You can't hear you.
I'm not sure Aziz.
Andrew has some Internet problems.
Um, so we're thinking our formation lab? Yeah.
Here may do you find my laptop just kinda old and slow, and it's annoying.
Um So Okay, we're in our information, a pretty long lapse.
The record for this lap is I'll tell you right now, it is one minute, 39 seconds.
So the previous winds, Hamilton's got the last two and both 1020 17.
And then Hamilton again in 2016 or Osberg in 2015.
They've got the last five Mercedes does.
Can they continue that streak with drivers today at two.
And three as we're stopping the first one getting into his grid spot in the front row.
The very top one, right on the right side? Yeah.
Its crew chief for stopping and Mercedes, but rather Red Bull.
Team Chief Christian Horner watching.
Red Bull's got 282 points currently placed second.
Yeah, and drivers were still coming around the final and, like, uh, believe that Castro filled apology and that Sergio Perez from his green plus Manti mask Yeah, in the front three drivers have been sitting there for a long time.
And those tires, you're not gonna be heated up and look for someone like a P four or P five toe, get a good start as a write down.
The way we go, we already and for stopping is ahead.
Here comes Hamilton on the outside, trying to make a move.
It's what we're stopping that Hamilton and Bata.
And then we have the McLaren, uh, science.
I believe starting is gonna be on before after him and then AB on.
And we've got some movement in the middle.
But it's still Max. We're stepping up ahead.
Number one and that number one spot as we get into turn, Um, yeah, uh, turns to heaven and belief That's turns Knicks that turns seven.
Yes, this has turned seven, um, and for stopping, it's still up ahead as we've got.
The car's pretty much they were, like, spread out.
So it's for stopping, followed by believe.
That's Hamilton Bottas.
We'll have the leaderboard official for you soon, and then Norris Alban signs.
So, so far, I'm not sure who confront bottles or Hamilton.
I'm not sure if it's brought a stand.
Grid has stayed the same.
Uh, didn't Norris Alban Carlos Sainz, Daniel Caveat.
Lance Stroll that we have in common.
Lorenzo Pierre galleys about Little Charlotte.
Claire can be writing in.
Antonio drove a Nazi Georgia.
Also after Fittipaldi whistle to be fan, Perez lost the spot, but first tapping in first.
Um, fantastic launch from him.
Like I said, he's going to get off the line very, very well.
But as we go later on into this race, look for the Mercedes to slowly catch him in and reel him in.
Uh, it's like I ought like like I said, the most power unit Wrong for that? Just Max Verstappen.
Alright, so no movement so far in the top eight.
So silver stopping voluntary Botox 1.
5 to 7 seconds behind the leader, verse snapping more the way all of football questions in the comments later on, At 10 or 10, something depends on how long this race goes.
You guys can ask all those during the kickoff show.
We'll be talking about all the teams because they're 16 games today.
All teams are playing first time since Week three.
Nobody's all right, so we're stopping Bottas Hamilton Norris album Signs of Beyonce's Lakhan Ghastly Make Up the Top 10 Hey, and your guess what for the first time, four weeks as Hold on We have ghastly trying to pass off on for nine, and we will good move there by the Alp Atari, where ghastly engine, closer to female at seven, is in contrast to make a move back on him.
And that's gonna be the ring for watching a con on the outside.
Ghastly holds him off to the trying, being Alkon and ghastly now neck to neck.
It will be ghastly as they head into the turn until one of the many chicanes.
I guess you could say, Well, there's a lot of consecutive terms.
There's about three or four you get.
You can call chicanes.
Um, so, yeah, Andrew, we actually for the first time, and I want to say four or five degrees.
But first time, First time we leave in 32 races.
We actually got through lap one without any safety cars.
Asthmatics for damages took the fastest lap.
Yeah, that's a one point you're writing.
This is the first time in about five weeks we haven't had a safety car or a red flag on the first lap.
Last last Last week we had Max for stopping.
Inshallah, class barrier.
Before that, we obtain man grows on crack.
And then before that, we had two weeks with.
So yeah, this is the first race and fought if weeks that we have not had raised with the right flag, which means session stopped and all the cars had toe stop and go to the pit lane.
Or a safety car.
Which means they had to stay behind a I believe it's a Mercedes AMG GTR.
Um, they can't go above a certain speed and no overtaking down below the pack.
Alright, Ricardo, now getting closer to ah, our home.
The fight we're watching right now is federal in the cloud Ari teammates fighting for 12.
It'll hands that spot right now.
Ah, Still no movement throughout the whole grid.
Now, uh, Perez per row.
Scorpio Perez is an 18th right now from ah, wind going down to 18.
Remember, after her stopping and, uh, leclaire went out.
Um, Perez did start 18 and then end up finishing for one as we take a look at the replay of the beginning.
Nothing I don't believe really there is to highlight their snapping out to into a great start.
He was a bottom on that way.
And you could really just see Max for snap and really getting away nicely.
Covering off perfectly. That was textbook.
Valerie Mathis gets a snap of oversteer.
Um, that's another side effect of not having your tires wound up.
And Sergio Perez Hey, sort of 18th.
Um, you had a fine qualifying.
There was nothing wrong, but he had a grid penalty because he's changed his engine from last thing.
Andi, he had to buy a new engine.
So at the beginning of the year, and I believe its four engines, um, like, used during the year, But all of his engines were too worn out or broke, and now he had to use 1/5 1.
So he had to start 19th, as did Petro Fifth Apology, who took a new engine.
And he also took a new control electron ICS, which is another component to the engine.
So he started below Sergio Perez.
All right, so still over staffing.
On what floor? Right now.
Don't go ahead you take it? Okay.
Um, Alex album just took the sector one, Uh, time record or not record, but for the race.
Aziz, he is trying.
Todo whose entry closing Norris.
All right, here. Let's take a look at our leader board here.
We've got, uh, still for stopping at number one, then Bottas Hamilton Norris Alban Sci fi at Stroll Ghastly Icahn Ricardo Vettel LeClair Aiken, do you have a nasty Russell Perez? Is that 17? Just beaten Magnuson and he's got fitted polity behind him and Latifi of Williams's down in last place as we're in turn four or rather were in lap for were in turn which turnaround.
Well, actually, we're getting to lap five now.
We're going Thio here, so it's right.
You're right. It was in 21.
So now we're in turn one of yeah, the next lap to turn to three as it got worse.
Vettel, top of LeClair buying um, 0.
It's very close between those two who have walked since the beginning of the race.
Vettel started at 13.
There started at 12.
Now Vettel's at 12 declares that 30.
You know it, Sebastian Vettel, in his last race with Ferrari will be moving on toe Aston Martin, which right now is not a team.
But this is also racing points.
Last, right under the name Racing Point, they will be Aston Martin.
And then they become Aston Martin there not going.
Sergio Perez, They're gonna have Lance Stroll! They're gonna have Sebastian Vettel there.
They're gonna let Perez walk.
So Vettel and Perez Rather Vettel and Struggle Makeup Aston Martin.
So no more racing point.
And then this is also the last race for Renno.
They're turning into the Alpine.
Um, so it would be pretty cool if you know, they could grab or if they can move up in the constructors drivers rankings.
Uh, currently in the final race here, the year currently asked upon A con is at 10 is in 10th place jangling Ricardo in 11th.
Does, um, s O All right, so let's take a moment.
Yeah, All right.
So let's take a moment to talk about the strategy going for this Grace.
Um, if you started on the soft compound tires, um, chances are you're going to need to stop at around lap 15, lap 18, mate, But If you start on the medium tires, you can probably stretch that 25 lap 30.
But as it's not early in the race, Alex Alben complaining, saying There's no way Lando Norris is doing a one.
Energy is over driving.
That means, um, driving is like pushing the tired hard and like zig zagging and going as fast as you can.
Essentially, but going as fast as you can.
Where's the tires? Out.
More drivers have to conserve their tires.
You wanna do a one stop.
So chances are if Alex Album is right, that you will making stuff.
And as I'm saying that I don't get right past Landon Art, so maybe Alex Alben is not doing a one stop by there.
Maybe he had to change it because his closest rival was doing that.
Now Linda Norris coming e down the back straight.
Lando Norris is gonna get him outside, going down into turn.
I believe that 17 albums get right back on the inside.
Alex Alben run Dogs run a little wide, though, but he still makes a stick.
Lyndon are still right on his tail, rounding through turn teen uh, 14 1990.
And Alex all about, you know.
Now what? And overtake by Alex Album He really knows that he has to drive for his life right now because if he doesn't score, I believe if he does not get a top seven finish in the driver, which I think he needs to finish fourth and for Lando Norris to finish below six.
Um, then I Sergio Perez will take Alex album See, as he does not have a contract for 2021.
Yeah, that would make sense that Rebel who's feeling the second seed in Ferrari? Uh, that's gonna be Carlos Sainz.
Uh, currently, he saw two driver so the best to drivers on your team.
So he's for stopping.
And him let notices a previous example when example Alan Prawns and Art and said this was a battle in the nineties when they're both at McLaren and both winning championships.
It caused a really big rivalry because the two best drivers were in the best car in identical, so we're gonna make them push harder, push harder and maybe take on necessary risks.
And if they do that, not Onley will the teams have to favor for one drive like let's say someone is in front and then go.
Let's use Ricardo knock on for this race.
Um, Ali Khan wasn't going this fast. Terreno.
Hey, pull over. Let Ricardo go by.
And that's exactly what a con did.
But if you had two superstars like Descente, they wouldn't do that for each other.
They would not back off, and they needed They would not concede.
They always needed to be the higher teammate, and it would just cause unnecessary fighting.
Um, so, um, now we have gasoline and hard.
Oh, I, uh, described fighting for number nine, right? Right now they are, um that was fast cars.
They just have, like, our ankle.
Um, what turned are they into right now? They're going into turn one or almost a that Landon ****s.
Maximum paste plan A.
That probably means he's just a man.
A full fast laps.
Right about now.
It may be five, like go have hit for some new tires.
And then maybe towards the end of the race, um, legend.
Ours started on the soft compounds on.
So I think he's going to do it to stop, to stop and go soft, medium soft um, if he wants the maximum pace down at the end, or he can bang out these really fast laps right about now on dry, toe them a little bit and go soft, fast.
Daniel Keogh, back to back 89 e.
So, like, I was, like, so maximum pace on plan A plan A is usually, um the stuff that they want to use going into the race, but they don't always get it because things change very often, but, um what it was like that that's that's not right. Don't mind.
Got past role, but that's just wrong.
Um, s O plan A is what you want to do.
It looks like Plan A is going to be the two stop strategy.
If you're saying maximum pace on plan eg, that pretty much means don't care about your tires.
Don't care about anything.
Just go hell for that leather right here.
And just why were they were saying? Soft tire.
Rather pit lanes open.
They were saying soft tires is one step is one.
Um, stop strategy.
That would be if you put on that 15.
You could go soft to hard, but if they're telling him to go.
Maximum case on plan A chances are that he okay, I shouldn't say chance.
It is a very good possibility that he will do a to stop.
It's not out of the picture for him to do a one stop.
But I would unlikely, because towards the end race, uh, tires would just fall off and he would be virtually un drive a ble.
All right, all right.
So now, still for snapping three seconds ahead of Bata, seven seconds ahead of Hamilton Claire and very also mentioned Close it now where Ghastly would like to make a move on his teammate Daniel Caveat.
Fiat will hold them off for the time being.
Got, uh, Norris and songs back to back.
Or rather hear what do nor bought us in Hamilton.
Back, back, Norris and signs back, back, back in.
Ghastly as now that will turn Believe into gasoline Fiat and the Ricardo Knock one back to back federal LeClair back to back. All right.
And then you have a nasty back to back.
And Magnuson Fittipaldi, back to back is guaranteed, By the way, did take Fiat s.
So we've got a lot of teammates, right with each other back.
Um, on the clothes.
This the largest gap in between teammates is forced for the top between bottom and Hamilton Bottas is leaving.
It's obviously great news for Bottas.
Um all right, so yeah, look soon for, uh, yogurt IGC Uh, Daniel Viet.
So I think it's gonna go.
Oh, Sector Three, yellow flag as someone gone off.
You're pulling off.
I just came. Smashed the steering wheel.
Chances are that means it's an electronic failure or engine failure without virtual safety Car.
Oh, pit pit, pit pit.
Get for stopping right now on to the hard compound tires, please.
Red Bull, please.
All right, So what a virtual safety car means is you can't exceed a certain Ask anyone and you can't go over a certain mile an hour.
Looking for is only eight seconds, as opposed to the usual two seconds.
So please pit for staffing right now and get him onto the hard compound ties so I wouldn't have to put off the race.
You see, I'm wearing my red wool jacket and mattress happens.
One of my favorite drivers of all time.
Please pick him and get him on time.
Please please, please.
As Max Verstappen, he's coming through Turn 14 right on.
Looks like the boys were getting writing that stroller and get less come out.
But as we see Sergio Press coming coming round, I believe 12 and just know power is and engine Just stop your heart.
That's very unusual for so much.
Just took a brand new How are you nit have toe, therefore engine failures.
It is very unusual.
Yeah, he's obviously not happy at all.
As we Todd Stream is hitting and Red Bull's also getting someone in.
Is it Alban over stopping? That is.
Yep, that's Max's first happened, and I was a very quick pit stop.
Z Bartosz at 2nd 2.
5 goes back to back again in Hamilton.
Mercedes really improved in the last time of 27 seconds.
Their second step.
I think Mercedes pit crew learnt their lesson on how to do a double stack.
That means having to because last week they tried Thio do that and it, fellas, all they put the wrong tires on the first car.
That was when George also was driving for mercy and then Dr Reebok Test stop The air Guns weren't working.
Not not just nothing could go their way that time.
The first stop was around six seconds.
And then the second one was about 27 I believe.
But I also picks up today.
Went fairly good.
I don't think three seconds 33 seconds would be a okay.
Lewis Hamilton does not agree with his strategy.
Choice, um, is just Pete.
Boddington and him have usually gotten along very well, but Lewis Hamilton is just very difficult to manage.
He'll always say, Bono, my tires were gone.
You know, I have no power, and then he'll just go out and I'll just win the race.
And he just completely disregard he.
That doesn't mean anything at all.
All right, let's take a look at our leader also.
What this safety cooked up as the safety part is going to be coming off soon.
That's really bad for slapping E for stopping because this is a really a actual.
They're bringing the actual safety car out.
Nothing else happened.
They're bringing the actual safety car.
Let's take We're actually gonna replace first.
I'm not sure what happened so actually somewhat with the pit outside of the pit.
Um, yeah, and I don't know what was wrong with that.
Looks like that's Lynch that shows the only racing point left in the race was released right into it.
A very good job from him, not toe crash into Carlos Sanchez.
But look what the leaderboard.
We have match for staffing to Botta to Hamilton, Alabama Ricardo before five, we have landed in Paris, Sebastian Vettel in Charlotte, Claire the teammates and 78 that we have signs.
Nine straw galaxy drove Nazi off 11 12, 13, 14 I'm writing and Latifi Russell and quality.
Sure, Yeah, yeah, yeah.
But I'm saying earlier this really does well into Max for staff in favor because when they say the car back in Valerie bought test might get a chance to pass him.
So what they do when they restart? Um, just be going slow.
And then all the drivers will get a sick saying that it's OK.
Toe go fast essentially.
And then Bottas could get launch.
Hamilton could get a good launching, overtake both of them.
And this really hurts Max for staff and all right, so for staffing Bottas Hamilton Alban Ricardo Norris Vettel are all on hards The clarity on medium on three straight, hard for side scrolling, ghastly medium for driven.
Andi, I can't Magnuson will get hard.
Likening is a medium.
Russell is hard tires and the TV is pitting right now.
That's so the leaderboard lines up with the tires, so everyone's done A pit stop except for Ricardo Vito LeClair, Geo Bonazzi.
I'm Kevin Magnuson of Ha.
So Ricardo, 11 throw he started and in p 11.
So that means you can get a free choice and tire of the top 10.
You have to start on the tire that you used in qualifying, but if you start outside of it, you can use whatever tire you want.
And this is really worked out for Daniel Ricardo.
My favorite driver, he's read more.
God, um, he started out on the hard compounds fires.
So yes, they will be around eight laps older, but really helped them because now that everyone has hit, Ricardo could just stay out and he was already on the hard compound tires.
Mhm, absolutely, as they're pulling Sergio Perez, his car Oh, um, So racing point will be with one driver.
They were really hurt.
Well, um, currently, 10 point and McCline are separated by points and the construct your kinship.
And so no, Let if Lance Stroll, who's intent for right now finishes there.
All they need land on Earth to Dio is finished.
Uh, he for a possible Ronald would win.
Random just needs 10.
Just needs a lot more points than Racing point this week.
And they would get p three in the constructors champ on then, um then also, if Renno has a really good out showing, Um, right now, Ricardo's in five, but all kinds of 13 knots for a point.
And get this all together and he can get up into the good points range, maybe p six and Ricardo gets up.
So, like, before they may be able to get I don't know the exact number, but that would be very nice.
I mean, I'm not against, but I just walked in a ricard and I want to see him do well and McLaren just so easy to root for it. Absolutely.
So here, or how our standings look like, uh, with the points drivers.
Too many weak number one.
We have, um, Max. We're stopping.
Or rather what did I say? That our constructors meetings and the one we have? Mercedes with 540 points.
We have Red Bull with 282 points.
We have Moreno with with Excuse me, we have rates in point with 194 points.
Four is McLaren with 184 points.
Randall's fifth with 172 as Perez is walking off walk.
Ah, then that six is Ferrari.
Eight mile for um Ao 88 and 8.
4 by the Avatars.
Got 100 frequent eight points for number eight Alfa Romeo for number nine. Haas.
They got three points on the year in Williams with not a single point.
I mean, well, George Russell has finished in the top 10, but that was for Mercedes.
So Russell himself has points.
He is, uh, in tell you which place he's in on the season he's down at.
Where is she? George Russell.
He's got two points.
He's in 19th place.
A T v a T v a can fit the quality and they can only had one rates.
And so that was her back on the hair.
Okay, they're the only ones with zero points.
Uh, we've got Now we're back to raising safety cars off its silver stack and Bottas No changes yet.
Um, as we still have those signs warming up his tires, it's still down.
Three spies If I give you the U leaderboard in a few moments.
All right, let's do that right now as they head into term, I want to say 78 No.
Six and then that step, that's next Seventh, Mary. Okay.
So let's give you your leaderboard.
Uh, here we have Max were stopping one Valkyrie.
Bottas to Lewis Hamilton three.
Alex Alben, four.
Daily, Ricardo five.
Lana Nora six, Sebastian Vettel seven and signs just past the clear for a perfect timing.
The Claire's at nine.
Lance Charlotte, NPR Ghastly at 11 12 is Geo Kharazi, 13.
Esteban, aka 14 Daniel Caveats 15, Oregan in Magnuson at 16, Russell at 17, Latifi at 18.
Fittipaldi at 19.
Alright, so silver stab and but less than a second.
Behind him is Val. Terry Bata.
Claire wants to make a movement Carlos Sainz, but signs hold him off.
Help holds him off for the time being.
But we're gonna be watching that race closely between the McLaren and Ferrari.
Obviously that's gonna have her. Actually.
You want to be teammates here? Yes, right.
The claret, right.
Those two are both gonna be at Ferrari signs.
It's going over there to replace Sebastian Vettel.
Holes we mentioned earlier is going to ask the Norton now race. Um point.
So a fastest lap just recorded by Max for stabbing right off that safety cards.
Obviously good news as he, um, lengthens the lead toe 1.
386 seconds behind voluntary Bottas of Mercedes.
Now they handed to a turn one or stroll does.
That's the way we're looking at.
What? We got a fight, but in for number one.
That's for stepping in Bottas.
But Bottas has 10.
5 slower seconds on the last lap as you take a look at the replay of how the McLaren signs beat out the Ferrari LeClair uh, not know, like physical.
No touching between those two.
Although we have a McClaren Ferrari McLaren Ferrari.
Orange ride orange red.
That's how they line up.
Bottas has the fastest sector one time today.
It was originally album.
Bottas just passed him 17 seconds, Uh, and more asked about Icon down to 12 or rather up to 12 from 13 passing.
Um, Antonio Geo Finn Asi and I'll call it and you have a nasty We're looking for that you have.
And as he tries to make a move on icon on the outside and icon will hold them off.
Hong Kong will take him out back on the inside and other going to one of the two, the one of the canes, their turn after turn after turn.
So, do you have a bonazzi number 99 picking up? Sept. 31.
Esteban Icon? Yeah.
Um, alright, that's for 12.
Icon started at 10.
He's lost two spots since she even as he started 14th.
He's up to 13th.
He's gained one.
We're watching Lance Stroll 18 car, the only one for Racing Point still left in because Sergio Perez, so far the only one to exit this race to retire in this race and that might actually be his last race, Um, off the next two years? Probably not, though, but if But there's always a possibility.
A Z we've got Bottas 1.
775 seconds behind.
Max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton Alex Salmond, Daniel Ricardo, Lando Norris About the metal Carlos Science Charlotte Claire Lance Stroll Make up the top 10 here.
Ghastly like they wanna Condra Bonazzi Didn't look Fiat reckoning Magnuson or where I get in heaven or within George Russell Nicholas Latifi True, Fittipaldi make up the next nine as here comes, relieved that science stone, metal and stroll it was passed declares that require falling all the way down from 8 to 10 ft.
Just passed Genova Nancy for 13 You know Giovinazzo and raking in our back to back the two teammates there at Alfa Romeo.
Now Lance Stroll declared tries to make a move on land strong.
The outside of the Claire will pass him.
So now strolling the Claire switching places the Claire up to nine.
Stroll down to 10.
He needs points.
Thankfully, he needs big points.
The Claire right now and nine, obviously 10, does get you points, but Onley one and they cannot afford racing points to get only one point as we take a look at the replay.
How Charlotte Claire, who is personally my favorite driver, uh, got past or Yeah, I like the clear because I don't know why I like I like Ferrari.
I like the cars.
Um and under investigation is the Carlos Sainz as to Oh yeah, Karla Clara, He's crying for I can't Can't not like LeClair Um yeah.
So Carlos Sainz is under investigation for something that happened in pit Ling, you know, interestingly, only bring that up now I thought it would be an investigation.
Be he was like, sparking up in the back when he was passing Vettel.
I don't rather declare I don't think there's anything bad, but I wouldn't long I don't know, they might take a look at it, but I guess not, um as Sebastian Vettel at seven point in time, we owe right most of the time when cars spark, there's there there, these little small uh right as I say that Carlos Sainz and Sebastian Vettel really getting into it Can Carlos Sainz get to switch back? It doesn't look like it is not a big enough front off and are they taking? Carlos Sainz will get DRS down into this long back straight.
He's inching closer and closer and closer.
He gets an extra about 20 miles an hour.
Just blows right by him around the outside for seventh place.
Uh, Sebastian Vettel will not get switch back and now it's McLaren Ferrari Ferrari racing him.
So now it's McLaren.
McLaren for Ferrari.
McLaren's have passed the Ferraris.
It was Ferrari for our Clarence.
Red Bull Mercedes Mercedes, Red Bull, Renault, Bono Require McClaren for our Ferrari Racing point.
Salvatori Renno, ALF Atari, Alfa Romeo, Alfa Romeo Williams.
Um Haas, Williams Haas.
And then the other racing point is out.
Yeah, that old Claire do you have been asking for? No, The only ones rather pit hit window is open once again.
Medium tires. A one stop strategy.
Um, so most of the ones that have not pit are on the noodles, No one's on cloth and everybody else that is on hards hard tires here is getting dark in Abu Dhabi.
Uh, it would be somewhere like, Well, how old time will be there? 67 e.
My phone is in Abu Dhabi it is 5.
Yeah, right around six.
Right. That's what I figured.
So yeah, Abu Dhabi is getting dark there.
45 PM By like, um yeah.
47 here Eastern time.
Bottas Hamilton Album covers First client Vettel declares Troll top 10.
Anything you I would like to share that you thought was is pretty good about this race, I think is a good race so far.
Do you think I'm honestly still surprised that match for staff and has held that three second gap toe Valerie broadcast? I thought, as we got further and further on this race, Bottas and Hamilton will just be inching closer.
But I don't think Hamilton is strength.
Is you obviously recovering from Cove It like he missed the last race because of it, But, um, if click, he's not himself.
He's usually in the lead by around five seconds from five seconds behind the leader.
This is very unlike on characteristic of him.
He has already clinched the championship, so it really didn't matter, But it's very uncharacteristic of him.
For those of you just joining us, uh, this is, uh, Formula one on the next network.
I'm Andrew Forman.
Alongside miss like, Oh, mercy on ESPN two.
Um, not through the race.
Currently, Sean Row right here on periscope twitch and SportsCastr.
So I was actually just about to do that.
Uh, Andrew, they asked them Good timing.
So, um, Carlos Sainz still under investigation? Ah, stroll and the Claire fighting for nine.
Battle for nine there and stroll in closer to the Claire and he will get him on the outside.
Good pass by there.
Well, no contact there as the Claire will try.
Thio, get the switch back, and the Claire falls down to 10 and stroll goes up ahead.
He's going to have the oh, Nashville support, but feelings of you non F one fans that were just stinging what a switch back is If I If I were to overtake Michael going around you and Michael is gone, Um Okay, So if I were to overtake that neck around the left, um, if I would run What? So if these are the two and this one goes around, this one would go around that and try toe undercut him essentially go behind him.
Accelerate through and go further on the inside line.
As we've got LeClair and ghastly Now battle for 10.
All right, so let's take Let's see.
Um LeClair writing on right now with with, um, Charlotte Claire, who is 0.
6 seconds ahead of the Alfa Atari Pierre Ghastly care Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Yeah, en bas back pre season at least.
Uh yeah, scrimmages.
My hawks didn't do so well tonight.
Ah, as here comes ghastly on the Clare.
Just ghastly will get passed by him.
The clear ones will find him off, but it will be the Alfa Tory PR.
Ghastly poachers declare out of points and down to 11th position, which is e believe where he started.
Or did I can start there? She would start.
Um, I started 11.
I'll start at 10.
The class start at 12.
Started 10 11, right? I got started 10 Ricardo started 11 and then the Claire and a Claire started 12.
Metal, about 13 fiddles up now to eight.
LeClair's up to 11.
Although at one point LeClair was at eight.
Carlos Sainz, by the way, got past federal.
I'm not sure if you missed that, did we? Might have missed that.
Eso now than to Yeah, Yeah Huh.
I'm not even sure how we miss that.
The Violet two of the Claire.
Guess they if that, too, is now.
Vettel is Might get passed by Lance Stroll for Racing point.
Not sure they're not showing the battle.
Kinda wanna take a look at it? Um so you can actually see.
But there are showing Rick AQ Khan who is behind Sebastian Vettel.
That's what currently they have on come ESPN two Alright.
Formula One grade sport, By the way, do you know that well and Formula One like a tire, A tire costs as much as NASCAR.
Mhm No, I thought the ties were e thought 1 $600.
No, no, no, That's what I heard.
But it's either.
Well, e Yeah, There's some part of the car that cost.
You are as hold on.
But Claire holds them off for now as they head into turn seven or six.
And 77 now eso Charlotte Claire still in 11.
Yeah, but the point is It's very expensive.
Yeah, this year will I believe it's 24 buttons, I believe all controlling the engine tires.
Onda, the DRS are you'll see rear wing on the trail? Where is this rental On that one? It will open up and it'll like you go faster because won't have as much drag.
DRS since for drag reduction.
So see, those wheels are very expensive to produce.
Just the front window costs $25,000.
Three way battle.
Um, for 11 between LeClair, Akane, Fiat and the closure said we're going to lose a lot more by staying out five laps.
Not sure what he means by that, uh, losing a lot of time because what that means is probably his tires or fading out.
So he did not hit under the safety car.
So he's still on the same medium compounds that he started the race on and no one.
So those were really gonna start falling off right about now.
I spent all kinds, makes a move on Charlotte Claire.
He goes on the inside.
What? A dive bomb goes through the chicane and that has fantastic street speed.
So I do nothing but there are always people get back.
Even with the DRS on Charlotte Claire, I think I spent a con will hold position.
For the meantime, I was right on board with your ghastly who has a great view of this battle.
And as I I stay corrected, I spent often does get ahead of Shah LeClair LeClair having a very good race.
I spent off con still losing a place off dull LeClair has stayed with for most of this race and is where he started.
Okay, so, um yeah, replay of how long? Con earlier in the race took the Claire? Um, yeah.
So 23 laps and that is that is LeClair 16.
Okay, that's the claire.
Yep, I Let's see.
Er that's gonna be around 2.7.
Income here at last, people.
Ferrari strategy has not been good all year long.
I don't get what they're doing wrong.
Like I'm not an expert, and I'm not gonna pretend like I am, but Ferrari strategies suck.
They just do as I don't forget how.
Yeah, I don't get why they kept him out after five laps And now they chanted and he's in dead last.
Like what kind of sense does that make? Not much.
Yeah, I'm with you. I really don't.
Yeah, Look there.
All the way down to dead last.
Let's get you up on the leaderboard.
We have for stopping number 15 seconds behind him is Bottas.
When Hamilton at three.
Daniel Ricardo at five.
Lando Norris six.
Carlos Sainz seven.
Still under investigation.
Something happened earlier.
Now a Mercedes teammates are fighting for a spot to Bottas in Hamilton.
Here comes Hamilton Off Cove.
It, um Vettel at eight.
Stroll at nine p.
R. Kathleen has 11 Afternoon.
13 ranking and 14 Russell 15 Driven Asi 16 Magnuson 17 The TV 18 Fittipaldi and 19 is shrine declare.
Yeah, but Boss has has been edging Lewis Hamilton.
Uh, like I said, loose him with this.
Just does not look like he's on pace.
He's seven seconds behind the leader now.
Valerie Bob Task almost five seconds behind the leader on Daniel.
Ricardo is really holding his own.
He's up in fifth.
Um, he's up six places.
He he didn't hit.
He got his strategy.
S so he kind of bit bullet yesterday by not me in tow.
But, I mean, that really worked out for him today as he gets toe start on the hard tires and it really works for him and his random.
Absolutely so far it's been working.
And if ran out, make Ah, good pusher.
They've have up on right now at 11.
But if they If I'll come next, a nice push, and they can get Ricardo to be right around five and then I'll can't be a bit higher up to, you know, maybe seven or eight.
Then how about that? That's double the ideal situation, right? Yeah.
Like differential between Racing point and Renno.
Uh, racing point has 1 94.
Renno has won 72 but raising point has only one driver who's at nine.
Um, Ren owes runaway is 22 points behind Racing Point with Baltra from McClaren, Who's one of the o? All right, All right, so if they get Ricardo toe four, that's 10 points.
I mean, they need 13 more, so they need essentially before three or four Brenda was going to do it they need or or a win one of their drivers at points from Stroll AQ Khan.
McClaren is actually ahead of random.
McClaren has won 84 they have signs.
Right now it's six and seven or nurse and signs.
At six and seven Andrew.
So there's going to be passing a lot of people, like right, they would also pass Racing point climate.
We got t three after a win from Racing Point, which, you know, we thought it might have given them the push they needed.
Obviously, it's a bum as stroll comes off.
Oh, comes back on.
Okay, that was I almost I mean right racing point.
I'm sure racing point probably just took a big sigh of relief.
Not nothing happened to stroll a stroll trying to get over toe Catholic, trying to pass stroll.
Ah, but there's still a good, um, second behind him.
Yeah, e just misses e.
I just don't know what happened.
I didn't miss his breaking point.
Possibly bracing point missing the breaking point.
Um And you saw, uh, the team was concerned there All right.
So, uh, ghastly had a fast lab by point by six Insulin second God.
Um, so less than a second faster was very nicely.
Lance, stroll at a time 1 40.
Also, because I just went off.
Not cost him along, right? Of course.
Why I look at the constructors championship.
If it ended right now, McLaren would be by two points.
This is gonna be really close.
They really need Lance Stroll to make up a place or two.
I don't think these tires were gonna go all the way.
Does that mean he's gonna win? Andrew, based on what you told us earlier in the race? What you're saying I think cannot win? No.
Do you think Azaz? They're just You know how you're saying earlier? How? What? Hamilton, like complain.
His tires aren't good.
His engine, whatever. And then he goes in and wins.
So they complain about his tires.
Something you think? Everyone.
He's this harsh up now.
In the next four laps, he's gonna put a new fastest lapping mark.
Four laps, you will A new fast flat magazine and TV always says this and then you find clarity.
Yeah, declare a 18 also should be included used Or is he that far off? No, no, it's not.
It's actually not that far from my true, um, as we've got a message Pit Lane incident involving Sarah Carlos Sainz of an investigative after the race.
If anything, if he gets a sort of penalty, which is like, move him out or something like that.
All right, where's the third investigate? Plus signs but not Lance Stroll.
From what they showed us on the replay, it looked like it was land strolls.
Fault like that length Strolls Mechanic released him into Carlos Sainz.
So it's interesting that they're Onley investigating Carlos Sainz now.
Now in 7, 27 laps in.
All right, we've got March 2021 is a third of next season in Formula One will be what we call in next season's racism.
Very excited for that, Andrew and I course is the last one of the year's Charlie.
Claire will get past Nicholas the teeth, trying to get past Kevin magnets and staying with momentum, and Magnuson holds him off or came off for the time being as the player still fighting for that spot.
The 16 car right now in 17 wants to go up to 16 and should be getting past Kevin Magnussen easily.
And yes, he does right there.
And so the Claire up to 16 and I catch Giovanna Z So Antonio J, even as he was ahead of a player Absolutely, absolutely as they head into turn 21 was playing from 11 when it was done.
Let's take a look.
And here's that.
Here's that replay of So to me, that looks like Yeah, No, that was That was No, no, no, no.
That was so signs that I guess he wasn't supposed to go.
E o e Claire just passed.
You even ask already? Yeah.
Yes, he's in the killing.
Oh, but to me the Clairol think is packing heat To me, that looks like that was land strolls Fault Stroll By the way, now very close to Sebastian Vettel.
We'll get to pass them Well, we'll see shortly she even asking out out of the pit or make those thio Zena next season.
Yeah, so it looks like a we publish.
So these two will be to you in to ask him, Saw Carl Lines and Shala. Claire.
This is gonna be a fantastic preview for next year with the teammates right Stroll and Vettel stroll at nine.
Verstappen asks his team how the balances they reply with.
Yeah, not bad, mate.
Just controlling the front and rare slapping says, That's good, man.
Just to check in with Red Bull on the radio.
And now back to the racing point vs Ferrari.
Um, we've got Lance.
Stroll has been on his fires for 17.
Middle has been on his for 27 after the 29 laps that they've raised, Um, as they head into turn one, this is now turn one.
Go ahead, Andrew.
Yeah, All right.
So what? What? I was trying what Max Verstappen means by the balance.
It's sometimes your front tires wear more than your rear tires.
So if your front tires are wearing out too much and your rear tires air fine, you're gonna get what's called understeer, where it's really hard to rotate the car into corners and you're not gonna, and you're gonna have to break earlier and steer Mork or if your front is fine and your rears or bad, it means that you're gonna get oversteer, Which means you're gonna scare a little bit and your back end will kick out and you're just gonna drift through the corner.
And that will make it even worse for your rear tied.
So once your tires get you, don't your rear time for bad.
They just keep getting worse.
But you don't get grip and you just keep saying it's gonna be even worse.
And right now, who is that? Is that your ghastly down? Yeah, that looks like that.
Is that appear ghastly? Let's get last role and one fantastic move into the end of that D.
All right, Uh, keep in mind the often tarred with the Honda Power unit and the Racing Point with the Mercedes.
Oh, I thought he was gonna get him down to that last corner.
But as we taken on board, look from last straw and move dot bomb.
And as we go into that nice triple chicane right there, I thought Lance Stroll was gonna fight him back with his speed.
All right, so for those just joining us, we're on a 30 year old the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix from the next network.
I'm Andrew Form.
And this is Michael Mercy.
Uh, we for those You asking Football question chat.
We will have a kickoff show as soon as this ends.
Um, and correct me if I'm wrong, but it's just going to do the rest.
Yes, yes, yeah. Obvious.
So that will be at one Onda.
We have this'll week every No Monday night or Tuesday night.
No Wednesday night.
Like some weeks we've had Saturday.
This will be the year ever in NFL history.
Toe Have one game on every day of the week.
We've already had Tuesday games, Cowboys, A Wednesday game, Ravens, Steelers and we're gonna fry on who the lines plan on Christmas.
It's Vikings, Vikings, maybe Viking chains.
Eso Now, as we get back, Chris staff and says, I'll try to keep pushing.
And Christian Horner, his chief, says, Okay, Mac, just watch.
After the time he's seven seconds ahead.
He can slow down a little bit if he needs Hey doesn't need to be extending that.
It's already seven seconds.
That's plenty of time.
He has a very comfortable lead.
Um but I don't know if those tires were gonna last him to the end.
So that's exactly what Christian Horner was saying.
Just watching after the tires.
Um, take it slow and just be careful out there.
Don't make mistakes.
One person that definitely isn't gonna go to the end of the race of Sebastian Vettel.
Hey, has not yet.
He is still on the hard compound tires and he's all the way up in eight.
But he's currently fighting.
Looks like here, Ghazi and last stroll appear gas.
He had a lap last lap with 5.
5 seconds faster than Sebastian Vettel.
So now appear gas.
We will have the drag reduction system activated down into the main street.
And as we'll hear ghastly as well us to bet on con.
So that's forming a little bit of DRS train.
So the only person of that four cars that will not have the rest of Sebastian Vettel peer gas he will let throw s seven and s seven icon will appear.
Guys were using the full of fact he's gonna make a dive down the turn 16 and he makes it stick.
Great job by ghastly look as federal tries to get back ghastly cult from payroll.
So you know Kathleen Federal strolla con Yeah.
Um And now Vettel tries to get back on ghastly and he will for no, he won't Never mind.
Ghastly goes right back.
So 899889 is federal trust Make another move on PR.
Ghastly but ghastly will hold them off once he won the winner of the Italian Grand Prix.
Um so live Constructor's championships where we stand right now.
Avatar E At seven.
They've got 107 points after, if if they stay with ghastly at an eighth, they have 103 points, though so far on the season it get four more.
Um, and Ferrari would get one because they have a I have 130 points.
Eso there's no I that they're going to get that many points on Behind them is Al for a mayor with eight.
So I don't think Alfa Romeo is going to score 101 points this weekend.
So there it is, pretty much decided.
It's been one of their best years ever.
um for Alfa Atari.
I mean, this is the first year it's called ALF Atari.
But in the last 15 years, um, where they've had Toro Rosso or they went by another name that I don't remember.
This is easily the pure.
They've had props to them.
Yeah, great child. Atari Peer. Ghastly.
Start an excellent driver.
He's gotta win this year.
All right, so Alright, veteran stroll now a battle there And I believe that's turned into turn one to now it's taken.
There is a 21 has 12 a video, But which I'm not gonna just part of the track.
I'm looking down the track, but for those who don't know how to track looks like towards the end of the ISS, right? It's a track, by the way, For those of you want to know, I'll make myself feel screen.
You could still hear you will grow.
But that is what the track looks like.
It goes down and around.
All right, so yeah, All right, um, 33 laps in at a 55.
So are much more than halfway done here in Abu Dhabi.
Who might have We might have to start the show a bit later and 10, but we still have to kick off.
Show Red Bull sprawled 100.
8 with behind the RS taking on the Ferraris radio.
Okay, I'll I didn't see her.
He said wasted, uh, something.
Is that okay? S so that just means that land strolls gonna pass him.
I don't think last strolls.
Um, I'll whatchamacallit cannibal.
Oh, by the way, Andrew, um, so, yeah, if it's all right.
I mean, and you're talking about college football this week and we're trying to get scenarios in Florida, by the way.
They're, like, eliminated from contention.
They're done because they lost to Ah, ls they lost Alice You yesterday, right? Yeah.
Oh, I didn't know that.
Yeah, because yeah, it was.
And they that's his championship.
Which, Which we're still gonna be calling on the next network right here.
It will. Me and Josh will be on the call for that.
But I'll tell you so on Florida, it was insane because I didn't actually watch the game. But I know what happened.
Eso It was on one of the last place of regulation.
They were tied it was going to overtime was 34 34.
I was going to overtime, and they're else was about to pump with, like, 30 seconds left.
So it wasn't necessarily even going a contrast with them down the field.
I mean, you spend excellent this year. He's like the Heisman.
So, um, pretty much the Florida player through one of the L S new players shoes down the field, which caused in unsportsmanlike conduct panel down, like, 20 yards down the field, like for the Florida like safeties, which caused an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
So then l s u ran up and kicked the game winning Figel.
Yeah, because it was an automatic first when they my contact because they were celebrating.
So they decided to take off one of the L S P Players shoe and threw it 20 yards downfield.
That's kind of stupid.
They weren't even winning.
So yeah, I didn't.
Yeah, but premature celebration.
And that cost him that.
Really, Uh, right.
That costs them the chance at a playoff alley.
The Heisman also.
So now if Florida beats Alabama in the SEC championship game, that means that big note has won Ohio statement to Alabama.
The three and I'm before.
Well, no, it depends what happens in Clemson.
Notre Dame of Clumsy.
But if Clemson wins, then Alabama.
There's no way Alabama becomes for though.
That's what I could tell you right now.
Um, so I could just correct Alabama.
Alabama will either be Wall Alabama talk.
Yeah, and if you lose, I mean, if they lose, they get.
They're the best team in college football, and it's not even if they win, they get the one.
If it I don't see them losing to for E think they'd be doing much.
Yeah, now, looking back to Formula One, shall LeClair gets past George Russell, who might be moving to Mercedes.
Next year's Lewis Hamilton has not been confirmed, but those two are great friends.
Strong Lando Norris, alcoholics, Alba and, um, and George Russell.
They've all been friends.
They've been driving go karts together since they were kids on, gets really fun to watch them race.
I mean, they haven't had a crash yet, um, which is saying a lot because there's lots of crashes and Formula one lots of contact, but they always give each other enough space, and you can always see that they're having fun when they're racing each other.
So, um, now welcome.
Um, stroll and federal still fighting for that nine spots.
So Ricardo Vettel are the only ones with no pit stop yet, as Magnuson just passed his teammate Fittipaldi for 18, they're watching Federal and Stroll now Lap 36 Hamilton and Bontemps by the year but Hamilton having a fastest lap silver stabbing.
But she said what he said after the safety car came out for Perez, by the way.
Uh, just maybe serious this time.
Oh, Hampton says.
I have a flat spot city.
**** up your tires.
That means you're tired.
Just stay flat like it doesn't spin and your car keep you **** tire off on git creates a flat spot on the tithe.
Um, let's watch that far I picked her has been terrible this year.
Eventually, the last ****ed up knowledge g**** 3.
2 booth comes out.
He's down to 15 under George Russell.
If he goes any lower than that, as the Claire at 13 just had a fashion up in nine Stroll, Hold on and your human side mhm all right.
So as I was saying So that means he'll probably for the pits on soon flat spot make you slower through the corners on Do you can't turn fast.
So that's Ah, steer.
Like what I explained earlier on day and that really makes your car over through the corners.
Um select less straight line B but that's not a huge impact, but it's also very, very for the drive because it's like Bumpy.
Right? Okay, so for seven in seconds, eight seconds behind, ahead of military Bottas.
Three seconds behind Bottas is Lewis Hamilton eight.
Uh, yeah, and eight seconds behind Hamilton is Alex Alben, 21 seconds behind Abba.
Understand And Ricardo, three seconds behind.
Ricardo Lando Norris, six seconds behind.
Norris signs 14 seconds behind Signs. It's ghastly.
Eight seconds behind ghastly stroll and one second behind stroll is our con One second behind Alkon Fiat five seconds behind.
Ripening is no five seconds behind.
That is, that is raking in and then one second behind.
Raking in is the Claire.
Five seconds behind the Claire is Brussel.
555 seconds behind.
Russell Vettel, six seconds behind.
Federal is Geo Bonazzi 19 seconds behind Genova.
Nazi in Nicholas Latifi.
Four seconds behind the TV is Kevin Magnussen and 16 seconds behind Kevin Magnussen is connected with the polity, and that's the top 19.
And obviously surgery.
Perez is out of the race of Ray for racing Point as we take a look at stroll behind him is I icon.
If you would like to have a move on Icon a 0.
999 seconds behind them, right just under a second behind AQ Khan is Daniel Caveat Russian.
So now we take a look at the fight with writing in the in the Clare 12 writing and holds that 12 spot now declare 1.
2 seconds behind him.
And they are, I believe, near the end of the lap.
Lap 38 her inching close to having 15 laps left.
Abby at lap 40 55 laps today, and the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is currently 9:20 a.
It is a around six, I guess. 20 There.
You're watching Formula One here on the next network.
Michael Moore, Ski Andrew Forman, Max for stepping and started at one.
He's our leader, Bata Putin, really unchanged the top three is unchanged.
Um, and they all top four has all pit Daniel Ricardo at five, however.
It's for him as a dark now in Abu Dhabi as Lance Stroll and asked about a con have finished their lap and they head into turn one beautiful circuit.
Great Thio feel and seems great to drive around there.
Uh, I've been watching some videos with, like, the race or kind of just takes you, like going to drive there.
Is this considered one of those, um, twilight race.
Is that, uh or no night? What was it called? Starry night races.
Night races is just considered one.
This'll be anything where it's dark outside and they need to light is considered a night race.
So this was this is a night race.
The last two races in Bahrain were night raids were not raise, but look, that current pace on Hamilton is first.
Like I said, his tired are fine.
Yeah, all right.
Disregard anything that looked l seven ties.
Yeah, Lewis Hamilton.
I mean, I think he's already cut with two seconds.
It was five seconds two laps ago.
Now it's already down to 3.3.
Yeah, Hamilton is doing completely fine.
I think that even if Hamilton did have some entire problem, he's still probably didn't he have that one time? Where he finished this year with with, Like his tire was like, Not even like on Or so it was something on the last lap on the flap, with four corners left and the United Kingdom race in Silverstone with four corners left, his rear left tired, just blew off.
So he finished the entire race with three tires.
He did like four corners with just Yeah, Lewis Hamilton is is insane.
I mean, he's everything he's.
Yeah, obviously the most winds of all time.
Time for the most, Um Ah, championships.
About time with seven.
He's got 94 winds.
I believe so, Yeah, I know.
He's He is really good.
So, Max, for stabbing how Maney Winds is for snapping have on his career cream.
Um, it's like 23 I believe 23 somewhere around there.
Maybe 23 is my guess.
It's around there.
E is a little bit less maybe like 18 and canned as we've got a pit from Ricardo.
That's the first one from him.
You could probably put the softs on.
I'll put the soft on him.
What? Soft on, please take a look.
That's a long pit stop on.
Did they put him on mediums your 15 you could put soft on.
Get out. Get Be ahead of gassy.
Yes, there it is.
He's ahead of ghastly by e.
I really like Dan Carter on.
He's good. Your mediums.
There's a chance for him to pass, um, signs.
Um, probably not notify the end of the lab, but not buying left by the end of the race.
But maybe Carlos Sainz.
15 months to go.
I don't know why they didn't put a set of soft.
They didn't have any new sauce.
Uh, regardless, Um, 15 seconds to signs.
If Ricardo could get a good result.
No, they're probably still not gonna get fourth in the championship.
You're probably gonna end up right around four.
But Lance, stroll at nine.
He's gonna need to get up ahead, or I mean, come on, racing point.
Really? They've gotta hope for, like, some miracle to happen if they want to stay ahead of McLaren right now the way they're going? Yes.
All needs dash, please.
And or at this point, as far as where has finally passed Reckoning.
Reckon it takes it right back.
What? And so right.
Getting back at 12.
E Gap and Ricardo with this e.
Yeah, but they're solid Claire at and around the outside and just had to back out of it.
Or else they would have crashed.
As you see, he's going around the outside, which means he's faster.
But then he needs to down on the brake pedal to avoid turning into Commie.
Right? And then, yeah, I'm still here.
By the way, Andrew and I will still be calling the race.
I'll just have for a short amount of time. My camera.
Yeah, eso I'll just I'm still here, though.
All right, So, um, we're snapping photos.
Hamilton so looks writing in the Clare.
They're still fighting for the 12 spot, as they have been now for Ah, bunch of laps.
Now, consecutive laps.
Um, so that's that's interesting with Claire.
Well, under the Ferrari strategy, which that's a poor Freddy, I don't not even sure why they even do that when you put the Claire when they did.
Um So now I believe Has everyone pitted Andrew beliefs? So yes, all everyone has it.
Everyone has pit.
Alright, that's that's great.
Okay, um, and their answer that don't get past Russell.
Uh, can Vettel get, uh, yeah, it doesn't look like it.
This is after the last race with Ferrari.
Let's hope he can get some sort of points.
Anything that would be awesome to see.
Sebastian Vettel won four championships of Red Bull has not won with Ferrari because a soon as he moved to Ferrari, Mercedes became dominant.
And now well, now he's just in a swamp.
They they don't care about him anymore.
All they they put all their resource is towards straw.
LeClair Um uh he's a fantastic driver.
I think he will do better Aston Martin next year.
But his, uh, with the last 23 years, it's been a power struggle.
Sebastian Vettel wants to be the number one driver then, like I was talking about earlier with post in cente, um, they both want to be the number of driver and not one wants to let the often passed, and it's just hasn't been working the past 23 years. Boy.
Driver of the day voting is open for my vote.
It's either between for Stefano Ricardo, one of those two.
I'm gonna vote for a four dot com slash vote.
Yeah, you're gonna go ahead both for driver the day.
Actually have not voted the whole year.
Should I look for? Because your car is also a grace.
We're stopping, has held number one, but he also he started number one so that actually passing on ricardo is up six spots.
Eso I I don't know.
I think e think I might have to go.
77 had the best race.
I mean, obviously he's number one.
He's eight seconds ahead of Mercedes Stewart.
Stopping gets model.
How many times How many times we're going to see someone be 11 seconds ahead of the King Hamilton? I don't know.
I I don't Don't see it happening many times, so I'm gonna go ahead.
And for the first time this year, I'm gonna vote on the driver of the day by that voted for Daniel Re****.
Speaking of voting.
You can go ahead and do that for on insular and ticktock.
Um, for the right for the game polls.
So that s o the way we do on the kickoff show is pretty much if you whatever Whoever voted for this team, like most of those pride percentage, we have, like a poll on instagram and tick tock.
It's pretty much one vote goes to instagram.
One vote goes thio ticktock for each game.
Um so, like, tick tock for, like, falcons chargers If more people hoped for tick tock, tick tock for falcons and the Falcons will win for then big talk pick the Falcons took back right now, by the way, has the best record.
Uh, followed by Instagram Fall by Josh felt by me which, by the way, Josh was in dead last for the whole year up to, like, two weeks ago, and I have not been doing bad, but I actually got better last week, but tick tock dominating.
I was actually right up there with ticktock, like, right in the beginning of the year.
11 laps to go for stopping still eight seconds ahead.
Um I don't know if Alison's gonna if he said he, but around 10 laps Andi, He said tires are bad, like lap 20 but he still put him on for 25 more laps.
Like I I Yes, there may be a flat spot, but I think he's fine with it.
I don't think he's gonna need to again, but yeah, I agree.
Uh, look at those polls for staffing.
That'll get 13% recorded.
Oh, I should have voted for Vettel.
This is his last race.
That's like what you do when someone, um or Kevin Magnus and well, my voice, Who should have over should I vote for here? You know what I might vote for Fittipaldi? Oh, yeah.
Um but, uh, a surgeon instead of a lot of midfield battles that writing in Leclaire battles still going on, we had a really a bunch of good land school and expand icon overtakes.
We saw Sebastian Vettel make some good moves.
Um, this is a decent race.
Nothing near a good his last.
I ask because the best race of the season so But I'd say this was a decent race.
I voted for Max for stopping.
I voted for Daniel Ricard.
How did you vote for Daniel? You You like your car note? But you're wearing the right boat, Jack.
Ricardo used to race for Rebel.
But either way for stopping races room right now.
I'm still so happy. Dramatics.
I think he drove an excellent race, but Ricardo just had a great day today, and I think he deserves that. He's giving up.
Yeah, I am really excited for you can do, but this came last.
This came yesterday morning.
So when I had this, I didn't wear it for qualifying, but like, it came like before qualifying.
Son Max got pole.
Then I wear it for the race.
And now Max, race this jacket, I'm convinced, is good luck.
Well, it's just good.
Look, who do you want to replace? Um on? Come on, album may keep this seat, but, I mean, I would love it if George roughly.
I highly doubt that's gonna happen, but the best chance will be served your Perez.
But if I had a choice to take anyone from the league and put them in that other ****** seat alongside Max for staffing.
I'll take the word, Russell.
Yeah, Russell, that makes sense.
Gonna start a bad case.
So, um, Hamilton and Bottas two seconds in between those two and lower bond, by the way, the seven seconds in between him and Hamilton as Hamilton gets passed, I believe that's Z reckoning Evans lap. Yeah.
Yeah, a u 22nd bond.
Yeah, that's right.
E there's anything wrong with time.
I have driver's championship as it stands Could.
Okay, so for stopping would not All right.
I was wondering if for stopping get past Bottas But no, it would still be valid area to Okay, So unless if and of Hamilton passed, but yeah e If Hamilton passed his body task you go from 18.
No, it wouldn't change.
No bottom looks like crash out of the **** But But that's what Have toe not finish the race for Max for stabbing toe win Alex Alben Pop Really well Alex Alben has brief instances driven Really, really well But then those are always followed by instances where he drives very very poorly.
Like last week was a very bad this week.
Really good, but you're black and white flour.
Charlotte, Claire has a panel or will receive a pound if it happens one more time for track limits.
So that means, uh, like right there.
If all four of your tires are off of the track, then, um, like, like, are on the white and red curbs or left.
You get a warning, and if it happens three times, you get a five second penalty.
Um, all right, we'll be done by 10.
Um, this probably you will probably be done by 10.
Was Josh was asking All right, So, uh, 1.
In between Bottas and Hamilton, this is a close race.
Very, very close.
898 Hamilton inching closer and closer and closer to Val.
Terry Bottas Is he made at Mercedes? Lewis Hamilton? Why not return? Will he retire? Will he return? I e don't know.
Yeah, e think he will return.
Um, I think he wants toe win the most world championship ever.
I think he's gonna come back for one year next year, win his eighth world championship and then retired with Mercedes.
But your face? Yes. Okay.
Now we've got a lesson that left? Yes, right.
What were you saying, Hamilton? Some something.
Hamilton wouldn't go anywhere other than the only other championship contending team could be Red Bull.
But I don't think he'll sign with Red Bull because he wouldn't wanna be alongside Max.
Let's take a, uh, look good.
Hamilton makes a move.
You could turn the engine down if you have a car on.
His chief says negative.
So that means there's different modes on the engine.
So, like, he's saying, Like, if it's if it's at risk of damaging the engine, turn it down.
But if all signs look good, um, there's no point our nominee, he can still keep pushing.
All right, so for status, about for 15 now, Russell's even answer the clarion head off or clean Fortune started 12. Focal.
That's a bad showing from Ferrari.
Um, laps You have a Nancy, I believe.
Now he's engine closer towards Russell.
that helps Russell's case of getting in front of staying in front of chief of a Nazi.
Magnuson off to the pits.
And without that five laps left.
Final five laps and we'll be back to the staff.
And he's currently 11 seconds.
And Calgary Baca's, um, that would be pretty cool.
And first out of bed.
Stop for Kevin Mack.
No way. That's right.
And that's a cool tunnel I got to go through.
Yeah, it is a something like that.
Reduced traffic last year, the few accidents that happened where you were released out of the pit lane and straight into the track.
And there were I'm sorry by, like, Max was that there were crashes.
Seven has nine career wins.
Oh, I thought he had more than that.
119 starts, nine wins.
Wow. I thought he had more than that.
Um, but he needs about him being a cop. 11.
Maybe the first Mercedes in a wild toe.
Not when this one.
You know, maybe the first nine win here in a long Yeah.
It's about like, six years, right? Like that? Yeah.
Six years, I think. Five years.
Six years? It's always Hamilton Rosberg.
Last, uh, that's so funny.
I'd love to see George playing.
Uh, Antonio drove Nancy another very talented young driver.
Russell, as we saw last week with the Mercedes, um, he can go out there and compete with anyone.
He has won best racers in the league.
This is not on a point this year with Williams, but that is because it is the car in the field.
So do not blame him for anything that happens with him this year.
Um, if you watched last week's race, you would see that he can just jump in a car and compete with anyone.
Um uh What zeros? Six seconds off.
Valerie mollifying factory.
Botas had three years of learning how toe Master that Mercedes car and George also had three days, so that just shows that he can jump in any car and beat anyone.
Right? So, um uh huh.
That Okay, um 51 lapse in four laps to go help.
So last win was nine career one here from we're stopping.
So that number still proper today for you.
Let's see if Bottas goes back.
If Hamilton could get past him.
Alright, Live drivers championships in it, e black that it's 3.
Hamilton is gonna get it.
Let's see you go Final three laps here of the 21 reason Max were stopping Valerie Bottas Lewis Hamilton Alex Album That in or ALS Generous Carlos Science.
Johnny Ricardo Peer Ghastly Lance Stroll Esteban on Con Daniel.
Keep me rocking in Charlotte.
Claire Sebastian Federal George Russell, Antonio Genova.
Nasty Nicholas Latifi, Karen Magnuson NP Etro Fittipaldi It's been a fun ride when it's not over yet.
Ah, Clarin, where Dance right now has been up to three.
Red Bull has 320 points, Mercedes, 5 73 at number one, Red Bull A to and McClaren moves up with 202 points to number three a lance stroke and make a one final push.
He's got ghastly and Ricardo in front of him.
They could do it for racing point Abby Big.
Right now where it stands, you get two points, but that's not enough because McClaren has five and six McClaren would be very happy if they keep their spots nerds and sign and stroll keeps behind.
Yeah, so strong will get two points and seven You would need to patch You need todo by the point.
And even then I think because you know, if if cholesterol Peter ghastly then racing point get second, it would tie in the point.
But racing point has more wins.
So that means that they would get the title s still right now let's roll is seven seconds pine tear gas Relax to go and I just don't see him doing it.
So I think the faith filled as race would.
And right now, I don't think anything will change with the McLarens or the racing point.
Um, then or maybe I comply.
9 10 11 are the only things that can change Straw all he won't go out, but he could go back because he's got a con man on his tail on Lee.
339 seconds behind him.
So you watch out there.
Alright. 53 laps, Two laps to go.
Come on, Let's go, Max.
Ricardo would move up ahead of Carlos sign 119 points on a year, which I believe, actually, already, uh, he already he's already ahead of although Carlos Sainz would jump Charlotte Claire if the clock pointers no planes and right outside honey 0.
6 place, get 6.25.
Well, fifth place six.
How about Alex Alben, whose only went eight seconds behind Lewis Hamilton to make a push ahead of him riding with him? Right now he's 40 seconds ahead of Lando Norris.
But can he make one final push with over a lap to go in 2020? Let's take a look.
Could it? Red Bulls you on the podium? Alibi shop? Hamilton.
That's gonna be a really, you could say I'm really pushing the car.
Look at that gyros.
Go 4.4 g. Right.
That's, uh like that.
And he's still pulling 1.
5 g in the street like it's insane.
Amount of force, right? Great job.
Someone who's flies really be going through here.
Banning Alex albums, finishing off his season very strong.
I still don't think it's enough for him.
Thio get the seat, though.
But he gets DRS because Charlotte Claire is ahead of him.
That that's gonna be very important if he can make it here.
And oh, it's 1.7 seconds.
Oh, I thought arrest off, Hamilton.
Feedback is this.
He looks so ever.
Alex album could get the podium.
He really just needs to close it in on these last corners, the front street.
And he may have it.
I don't say that, but if he gets in over Hamilton All right, Let's see Alban or, like, 50 for what happened and go to the next Max Verstappen.
13 seconds ahead.
When? And Alex Alben Here we are.
We're stopping the first one anchor on pasta.
Hamilton and Albert will enter that.
All right, here we go.
So, Hamilton Oh, come on, Al Bond, You got it.
Can he finish off 2020 with a podium and not Hamilton out? Right? Possibly knock you out of his career.
Maybe the Hamilton's last race, for all we know, way.
20 corner Can Alexander Alan makeup, a podium push for a podium and Abu Dhabi, probably not see.
He needs Hamilton to make some very big mistake because I don't think he closed off by 1.
6 seconds in a lab.
But who is that? That's the right on the Racing point.
Yeah, that's all.
Con on Stroll, getting into a non but strolling and pulls ahead.
8 seconds behind Hamilton.
Can he do anything as Max, we're stepping, closing in on another W.
Max for stopping at number 1 14 seconds.
Hell of products I should go, then all the way down and album second back, that's gonna be a for a nine.
For the ninth time in his career, Red Bull's Max for Stepping has won.
The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will be Valerie Bottas and second Lewis Hamilton will grab the last podium spot, followed by Alex Alben.
We're not gonna have actually Bonta Snam.
Well, actually a Hamilton and now Hamilton.
And there's dab on finishing off so the podium will look like we're stopping Bottas and Hamilton.
Lando Norris still not don.
Here comes Norris and signs and I can trying to get past stroll Can I can't do it for nine girls and the wheel to wheel Straw will take it back and I believe it will be Stroll, will it? Now here comes back on.
I'll come. Hong Kong is gonna get it. Cons.
But 10th of a second behind.
Um, Alkon gets past stroll on dot coms at nine.
Norris and Signs finished five and six.
That comes Daniel Ricardo.
And here is that this is asking when Icahn found by stroll there also in their final lap.
Right, So this is doing so.
That's an extra point for, uh, combined land strolls.
Can racing point get the fourth place in the constructors? I think they can stroller only getting one point.
Ricardo Getting our con Getting not, but my car gets p three in the constructors.
Thrilled because they just got p three and the constructor standings.
Red Bull fishes api to and they've got a winner and 1/4 Players.
They've got a winner and Max for stepping started in one.
Do not get past once all the way from polled toe one.
Not so it's supposed to be done, and Rex for stepping gets it done here and for the final race in 2020.
We've got Max for stopping for his 10th career win, right, man? Good for him for stopping Scott.
It got show, by the way, is in eight minutes, and we're gonna wrap up here once everyone finally comes in what Rick had today.
So much for having May.
