September 30, 2021 (Ooh Aah) Just A Little Pit

(Ooh Aah) Just A Little Pit

The rain came to Russia right at the end and made an already interesting race much more fun. Lando Norris lost and Lewis Hamilton won, but then so did Max Verstappen. In a way. Cheeka, Terry and Phill look back on an incident-packed Russian Grand Prix, and also review the new Schumacher film in their usual insightful and considered manner.

Episode #323: “Herta’s House” (2021 IndyCar Grand Prix of Monterey/2021 San Marino MotoGP)

Episode #323 is headlined by IndyCar’s penultimate race of 2021, as the travelling circus headed to California for the Grand Prix of Monterey at Laguna Seca. And on paper, it’ll go down in the books as a dominant win by Colton Herta, having led 91 out of 95 laps. But how we got there was intriguing, with Alex Palou being the only man being able to stay with the incredible mullet. And at the end of the race, we got a big chase-down attempt at the end of the race from Romain Grosjean on a new set of sticky Alternate Tyres. It was certainly dramatic with him taking 2 seconds a lap out of the leading pair until an over-zealous divebomb attempt to lap Jimmie Johnson ended his slim chances of winning. But it was fun! We discuss it all on the show, as well as some of the remaining silly season rumours, like RLL, McLaren potentially running a third car, and some of the F1 ladder imports like Callum Ilott, who made his debut this weekend!

We also catch up with the last two rounds of MotoGP, with Aragon and Misano both being one by Francesco Bagnaia in stunning fashion. Not one, but two dogfight victories against both Marc Marquez and Fabio Quartararo, the two best riders in the world right now. Misano was one of tension as Fabio got within a tenth of a second in the end, but Pecco held on to seal the win. We also talk about the 2nd fight on track for fourth between Marc Marquez, Jack Miller and a very bitchy Joan Mir, who’s essentially thrown in the towel for 2021 and his title defence. Sassy. And finally, we gush over Enea Bastianini’s shocking 3rd place and first podium in the top flight. A race so good, he broke the lap record FOUR times in the middle period of the race. All that and more broken down on Episode 323 of Motorsport101!

September 22, 2021 Episode #322: The Pinch (2021 Italian Grand Prix/2021 IndyCar Portland)

Episode #322: The Pinch (2021 Italian Grand Prix/2021 IndyCar Portland)

It was inevitable really, wasn’t it? Once we saw what happened at Silverstone between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, we all knew it would happen again. And it did. “The Pinch” focuses on the 2021 Italian Grand Prix, where an amazing McLaren 1-2 was completely overshadowed by the second major flashpoint between 1st and 2nd in the Championship battle.

Was there anyone to blame for the crash? Was Verstappen getting a 3-place grid penalty fair? Have we as fans gone too far when we use inconsistent arguments like: “Checking the drivers well-being” as brownie points to beat the other fanbase with? Or even harassing the sport’s medical driver on Twitter? We discuss all the angles on and off track regarding Hamilton vs Verstappen and what could happen with Sochi this upcoming weekend.

And of course, we talk about McLaren’s outstanding 1-2 finish, taking advantage of some lightning starts, a low-drag setup that was faster than the factory team in a straight line… and Lando Norris pretending to be happy that his brilliant season’s highlight was completely taken away by Daniel Ricciardo. Shoey’s for everyone.

We also have a discussion about what we’d do with the Sprint Qualifying format, given it’s clearly not going away with the ratings bump, with King and Dre proposing their own format changes! Let us know what you’d do in the comments!

We then move on IndyCar at Portland, with Alex Palou taking a real roundabout win after a massive messy Turn 1 where four cars miss the chicane, 4 more get bumped and spun round, and then the leaders got shuffled to the back due to IndyCar’s rules! But then with late cautions, the off-sequence runners got shuffled back to the front again so Palou’s overcut and survival of Rossi’s pressure got him a critical win! Talk about Portland as a track and early 2022’s IndyCar calendar also came through!
