Episode 67 - Unless something spectacular happens, this is gonna be a really dull race audio waveform

In a week where there is no news, we discuss all the events of the race weekend in France, including the many penalties, how drivers stack up against their team mates, and what did we really learn from the safety car test?


We got a shout out on 5live thanks to Scott.

Good week / Bad week

Good week for France, bad week for... No, wait, there is no news.


The safety car test during Free Practice didn't reveal as much as we hoped, and the drivers are also wary. We had an insider at the track, and Ferrari appeared to have it all under control.

The Race

A great start to the comments in Murray Walker fashion, some overtaking, some exhaust issues, and some really poor weekends for certain teams. Plus, a Fantasy Racers update.


Matt leaves us a great voicemail in three parts, Andrew is discussing one car teams on Facebook, and the anonymous images are claimed.
