Rd5, Spain

After a Spanish Grand Prix that promised so much but, according to Glen Crompton and Mat Coch, delivered so many the antipodean pair were let lose in the Pitpass studio for the latest podcast.

Though the pair can rarely agree on anything they did both acknowledge a fine performance from Sebastian Vettel, which Crompo says is the first drive worthy of a champion he's put in thus far in 2014. Naturally though they couldn't let the opportunity go without heaping more praise on countryman Daniel Ricciardo, suggesting that perhaps there is a rather more harmonious working relationship behind the doors at Milton Keynes than the selected radio messages broadcast on the global feed might suggest.

Crompo also can't resist having a dig at Kimi Raikkonen, who he suggests is turning in to a modern day Jean Alesi while Ferrari as a whole is gradually falling off the boil.

For his part Coch raises questions about the situation at Lotus, which the duo decide shall be called Enstone for simplicity, in light of comments made by Renault over the Spanish Grand Prix weekend. There is also an eyebrow or two raised over Pastor Maldonado's weekend and the Venezuelan's various incidents.

Special mention however is reserved for Lewis Hamilton with both Crompo and Coch thrilled at the 2008 world champions return to form - a man Crompo says is unbeatable on his day. That Nico Rosberg has managed to push him hard is a credit to the young German, and earns him high praise for the usually critical pair.
