Feet Up Friday - It's been launchapalooza this week audio waveform

In this week's show, we review some more of the launches - the good, the bad, and the very ugly! - and recap the highs and lows of testing in Jerez.

Running through each launch that has occurred since our last show, we relive the cuteness of everything Sauber and then the disappointing nature that Red Bull have started to show. We also talk about the merits of having a car with gull wing doors, and whether Toro Rosso are seeing red. Finally, we ponder whether launching at the break of dawn is a good idea, and talk far too much about shades of green.

Here, for those keeping track, are my launch scores so far.
