Austrian Grand Prix Podcast

NEWS STORY
25/06/2015

Somebody get the guys an atlas as the Pitpass trio of Max Noble, Mat Coch and Chris Balfe combined manage to confuse Azerbaijan with Kazakhstan... No folks, we don't know how they managed to do it either.

Maybe it was the threat of losing Monza from the calendar that got editor Balfe frazzled or the seemingly relentless march east the sport seems to have taken.

Either way, if you trust the team booking your next holiday in Baku - or the ‘Baku of beyond’, as our esteemed ed deems it - you're likely to be disappointed.

There is optimism in the ranks however. Following the Austrian Grand Prix the team is positive about Formula One, well, sort of. About as positive as they can be with confusing grid penalties that appear to be made up on the spot or pulled out of a hat.

It is optimism tinged with just a little fear though. Fear that the powers that be might see Kimi Raikkonen's crash as a crowd pleaser and therefore reason to shuffle the deck a little, despite Coch's insistence the sport is actually pretty good and doesn't need to be touched at all.

Don't worry, we've doubled his medicine.

Even Noble is in on the act, as he sets about nailing a new pair of shoes onto the Prancing Horse while wondering what sort of fish Christian Horner hopes Ross Brawn is bringing for dinner.

Finally, Balfe reasons that if teams like Ferrari can benefit - in terms of prize money - for their long history in the sport, why can’t historic circuits, such as Monza and Silverstone, benefit from some form of discount in terms of race fees? It’s a thought.

Coincidentally, this is our 44th episode and to celebrate we will be offering a 44% discount... which is probably just as well considering the numerous gremlins Skype threw at the team and which Coch has done a(n almost) masterful job of masking.

"Cat was going crazy in my office after the pod cast. Turns out he had caught a Gremlin. (Think half-brother of Gollum crossed with Bernie) but only half the height of a Smurf. It had a label sewn into the back of it's tee-shirt saying "If found please return to McLaren". It had "Made in Italy" written on it's foot. Not sure if it means anything... I then had an unexplained crash in my office wheelie chair. I've posted it back to Dennis posthaste so our next is safe. It kept shouting "Ciao Fernando" and laughing as I carried it off..."
