Rd13, Italy

While host Mat Coch might have gone walkabout following the Belgian Grand Prix, the Pitpass team is back with a vengeance following an Italian Grand Prix they describe as "not a classic, but not too bad."

Making up for lost time, the team of Chris Balfe, Glen Crompton and Coch quickly delve into the heart of the Mercedes conspiracy theory, Crompo clearly bothered by the fact someone beat him to the conspiracy-theory-punch. Rather than labouring the point though they all quickly agree that the rivalry is good for the media, but not for much more.

On the whole though, they concede the race was entertaining, certainly more so than usual where the race is typically decided at the first chicane. But there are fears for the future of the circuit, not helped by the fact Ferrari is struggling and the swathes of empty grandstands.

Daniil Kvyat's engine penalty gets the team discussing the current regulation set, and the implication those have as we move in to the final phase of the season. It's a topic which sparks emotive debate over the sports current situation, and the silliness within it.

Instead, Crompo offers his own solution to falling spectator numbers, which involves a unique use of former drivers, while Balfe derides the sanitisation of the sport. Hoping people forget his faux pas following Belgium, Coch stays rather quiet.

At almost half an hour long, the show efficiently manages to solve all the sports major faults and cover off all the incidents from the Italian Grand Prix.
