It's been a tough week in Formula One, which the Pitpass team has tried to make sense of in the latest podcast.

The team is unanimous in its call for calm and sensibility over the plight of Jules Bianchi following his incident which has overshadowed the sport since. Indeed it overshadowed a race that would have otherwise been remembered as 'quirky' suggests Crompo who suggest we should take on-board lessons learned from Imola 1994 before making any knee-jerk reactions or rule changes. The outspoken Crompo is also full of admiration and praise for the way in which all drivers and teams have handled themselves since the incident, and even defends the FIA in a most uncharacteristic outburst.

There was no ignoring some of the other major stories too, such as Vettel leaving Red Bull and the teams subsequent public response, which editor Chris Balfe labels 'beautiful', nor the continuing saga at Caterham which Coch has unanswered questions over.

This weekend's Russian Grand Prix gets a strong mention too, with the trio looking ahead to just how the weekend might play out. Most importantly they wonder who Vladimir Putin will collect the winner's trophy from, or whether the prospect of vodka will spur Kimi Raikkonen on to victory.

Bringing the show back onto a more serious note, Crompo expresses his disdain for recent media coverage surrounding Michael Schumacher and pleads once again for calm and sensibility, both for Schumacher and Bianchi.
