Just like last year, Austria gave us a better race than Styria for some reason, although Mercedes probably wouldn’t agree after another dominant race for Max Verstappen (he got the grand slam of win, pole position, fastest lap and every lap led). With the Silver Arrows coming home 2nd & 4th respectively.

This week on the podcast we take a look back at the Austrian Grand Prix, which like 2020 was part of a double-header at the RedBull ring, which nearly gave us George Russell’s first points in a Williams (even Fernando was sad about overtaking him for 10th) and an absolute bucket-load of penalties. There’s a look at the main news stories as well with Lewis signing a new 2 year deal at Mercedes and speculation about who’s going to be in the other car in the team next season (every season is silly season for us).

Just as we published this, the announcement about the Australian Grand Prix being cancelled came out, so Tuesday news strikes again! Also we’ve got the return of Who’s A Total Shunt this week and I can safely say we enjoyed this one!
