2015 United States Grand Prix

Subaru is on the verge of entering Formula One. Okay, it's not, but we bet that got your attention… It's just one of the wild fancies the Pitpass trio throw about in the latest podcast instead of dissecting what was a hugely entertaining race.

To be fair Chris Balfe, Max Noble and Mat Coch do touch on the topic but much prefer to talk about the important matters, like how many clowns could fit in Kimi Raikkonen's Ferrari, or why Coch has suddenly gone all Forrest Gump.

As an extra incentive this week Balfe came armed, launching second place caps at either Noble or Coch when the said something particularly silly. Noble earned one for branding himself an excellent Number 2 speaker, a point neither Balfe nor Coch argued with.

There are serious moments too as they question whether democracy really is the answer and whether installing sprinklers around the world's circuits is actually feasible. It probably isn't, though Balfe doesn't seem too upset by that.

He is upset at Ferrari after Maurizio Arrivabene criticised the sideshow put on by rival teams on Saturday afternoon during the (exceedingly) long rain delay. He was probably just upset Daniel Ricciardo agreed to dance with team-mate Daniil Kvyat and not him.

Fourth placed Max Verstappen gets a wrap, which almost certainly means he'll stick it in the hedge at the first corner in Mexico, but the trio universally urge caution over his future. It's so bright you can only look at it while wearing a welding mask, but the concern is he'll be rushed into a leading team before he's ready and not be afforded the time he needs to develop.

Like the race itself, the podcast has more twists and turns than Pastor Maldonado (and Coch has a theory there…) in a bumper car and covers more ground than the carnage left in its wake.
