The Bahrain GP Podcast

NEWS STORY
10/04/2014

The guys are back having eaten a healthy serving of humble pie following the Bahrain Grand Prix. In the wake of the Malaysian podcast, when the trio of Chris Balfe, Glen Crompton and Mat Coch lamented everything that was wrong with the sport, they have all had to admit that they enjoyed the race in Bahrain.

So much so it was the best race Crompo has ever seen, he claims, especially enjoying the bit where both Mercedes drivers had radio problems. Indeed he describes the race as an action packed event which left those with a weak bladder with a difficult decision.

It wasn't all roses though as Balfe questions why the drivers aren't playing a more active role in policing and punishing themselves for driving infringements since it is they are the ones with their lives on the line. Indeed he takes it a step further and suggests the drivers as a collective should bargain for more influence to protect their own well-being.

But while the trio agree on that point they clash when it comes to the fortunes of Williams and Coch suggests the Grove squad will slip down the order as the season wears on. Crompo who is inclined to disagree with whatever Coch says indeed, with whatever anyone says, isn’t so sure, while Balfe suggests that stable rules, if the sport can avoid pressing the panic button during the season, may just lead to a resurgence for the Grove outfit, though he stops short of predicting further titles in the future.

"Last race you critized Perez and now you failed to mention that he was surely the best driver of the race"
