2015 Austrian Grand Prix

Somebody get the guys at atlas as the Pitpass trio of Max Noble, Mat Coch and Chris Balfe combined manage to confuse Azerbaijan with Kazakhstan… No folks, we don't know how they managed to do it either.

Maybe it was the threat of losing Monza from the calendar that got Balfe frazzled or the seemingly endless march east the sport seems to have taken. Either way, if you trust the team while booking your next holiday in Baku you're likely to be disappointed.

There is optimism among the ranks though. After the Austrian Grand Prix the team are positive about the Formula One, well, sort of. About as positive as they can be with confusing grid penalties that strike them as made up on the spot or pulled out of a hat.

It's optimism tinged with just a little fear though. Fear that the powers that be might see Kimi Raikkonen's crash as a crowd pleaser and reason to shuffle the Formula One deck a little, despite Coch's insistence the sport is actually pretty good and doesn't need to be touched at all.

Don't worry, we've doubled his medicine.

Even Noble is in the act, as he sets about nailing a new pair of shoes onto the Prancing Horse while wondering what sort of fish Christian Horner hopes Ross Brawn is bringing for dinner.

Canadian Grand Prix 2015

Quite how the team manages to spend almost half an hour talking about the Canadian Grand Prix is a mystery. They probably deserve an award.

Max Noble, Mat Coch and Chris Balfe are back to dissect a race that really never was as they cite Sebastian Vettel, Felipe Massa and one curious local as the highlights of an unusually uneventful Canadian Grand Prix.

Though Lotus scored points with both cars for the first time in living memory Coch doesn't mind sticking the boot in as he explains why he thinks the team has underperformed. He also asks just how much pain Fernando Alonso can take before hoisting the white flag and calling a day on his Formula One career. Thankfully Balfe and Noble are rather more optimistic on that front.

There's talk of franchise cars and new teams, and the team even shows it's still cool by linking in with current youth trends courtesy of the Rolling Stones.

Yes, for a race that had absolutely nothing, this podcast has a bit of everything, except for Crompo who went mysteriously missing just moments before the show. Conspiracy theories on a postage stamp, if you will.
