Rd16, Russia

It may have been a dull Russian Grand Prix, but that just gives the team license to discuss an array of other topics. From the trouble at Force India to the state of play at McLaren, the team somehow even manage to spend literally seconds talking about the race, though they quickly noticed and stopped.

Disagreeing with what most drivers said over the Russian Grand Prix weekend, the Pitpass trio of Chris Balfe, Glen Crompton and Mat Coch see the inaugural race in Sochi a little bit differently. Balfe and Coch in particular are outspoken in their dislike of the new venue, with Balfe suggesting that while Russia might have a place in Formula One the race would be better served in a different location. They're also not shy in discussing the political overtones of the weekend and question why the weekend was treated any differently to other additions to the calendar in recent years.

From there things quickly move on to Force India and Sauber, teams which seem stuck in a rut with just three races of the season remaining. Sauber is of particular concern to the team, though Crompo doesn't seem to understand and is instead fixated with the view from the Hinwill factory.

That doesn't stop him sinking his teeth into some of the cheaper press, leading an impassioned plea again tabloid sensationalism by the media.

And if you're wondering why the podcast is only coming out now – it's all Coch's fault…
