Mr Zandman

The Dutch Grand Prix brought rain, crashes, a red flag and lots of entertainment, and then Max Verstappen won because of course he did. Phill and Terry are joined by Olllie Peart to discuss the zaniness at Zandvoort, and then almost immediately take a deep dive into the back catalogue of Wet Wet Wet. Because of course they do.

August 30, 2023 Episode #466: 2023 F1 Dutch Grand Prix Review

Episode #466: 2023 F1 Dutch Grand Prix Review

The racing Gods were determined to stop Verstappen’s winning streak after two deluges of rain during the Dutch Grand Prix. And Max decided to beat them too. Another moment of history for the World Champion as he became just the third person in F1 to ever win nine races in a row and just the second to do it in the same season. Can anything stop him from closing out the season?

We also break down who made the best and the worst of the wet conditions. Pierre Gasly shocked everyone with a podium from 12th on the grid, Sergio Perez slipped out of the podium spots, Alonso’s back in 2nd, and McLaren had Lando Norris miss his rain switch again. A familiar tale. And what the hell were Mercedes doing?

And what is going on at AlphaTauri – Liam Lawson coming in at the 11th hour to replace a now-injured Daniel Ricciardo after breaking his metacarpal in his hand. Will this have an effect on Red Bull’s driver scouting?!

All that and more on another Motorsport101!

Episode #465: Buy Or Sell – The 2023 F1 Mid-Season Review

Sorry this was a little late, editor Dre’s been ill for a little bit with a chest infection! But here’s a mid-season F1 review, but not as we know it!

It was RJ’s idea to have a special buy-or-sell edition of an F1 mid-season review! Because saying Max Verstappen wins, lol for 50 minutes wouldn’t be very interesting! So we came up with a bunch of semi-interesting F1 takes and Dre and RJ would decide what to buy and what to sell on the statement.

There’s some fun ones in there! Such as:
– “The team with the greatest upside in the Formula One paddock, right now, is Williams Racing.”
– “Nico Hulkenberg is a Driver of the Year contender.”
– “Who cares if Formula 1’s surge of fan interest is waning after the DTS boom or that American interest has peaked? The sport has thrived through the strength of its hardcore fans, not its casual supporters, and has done so without any significant American presence for years – F1 doesn’t need any of it in the future.”

See what I mean? Dre and RJ review F1 in 2023 so far in a mid-season review special!

August 18, 2023 Episode #464: Alex Palou’s Contract Dispute/Gallagher GP

Episode #464: Alex Palou’s Contract Dispute/Gallagher GP

It’s happened again. Alex Palou has caused another big contract dispute, or it’s continued on from last year depending on who you ask – And we called in our super-sub Ryan Erik King to fill in for Cam Buckley to try and make sense of this hot mess.

So the latest chapter of the Palou dispute has now had the Champion-Elect Spaniard tell Zak Brown he’s backing out of his agreement to join McLaren in 2024 despite having an agreement in place. It’s caused yet more tension as Zak’s kicked up a stink and ran to Jenna Fryer, Chip Ganassi has commented on the story for the first time ever and rips into McLaren, and even Palou’s old management has severed ties with Palou as a fall out of the drama. What the fuck is going on here and what the heck happens next?!

We also talk about the Gallagher GP of last weekend and Scott Dixon shocked the world to pull off the Spin-And-Win from the back of the field and the opening lap of the race to win by getting back on sequence via a 2-stopper in a race of 3’s. And he had to stop a dominant, 36-lap leading Graham Rahal to do it, after his first pole position in six years. We go in-depth on Dixon’s 19th consecutive season with a win, in his 319th consecutive start.

And we also talk on yesterday’s breaking news that Jack Harvey was immediately released from his RLL contract ahead of Gateway next weekend. All that on a heaped M101!

Episode #463: 2023 IndyCar Music City Grand Prix Review

IndyCar is often full of surprises. Just when you think Nashville was going to be another crash-fest, third time was the charm and everyone largely behaves themselves.

At the front, a game of strategy was in order as Kyle Kirkwood in combination with team strategist Bryan Herta outworked pole-sitter Scott McLaughlin and passed him in the pits and never looked back to his second win of the season. And hosts Dre Harrison, Cam Buckley and RJ O’Connell breakdown just how we got there.

We also have to talk about Alex Palou again, who being caught dead to rights on a strategy that was going to have him run out of fuel, only for the late cautions to save him in 3rd!

And we also talk Simon Pagenaud’s future. Linus Lundqvist filled in for the 5th race that Simon’s missed in his Meyer Shank drive since his horrifying brake failure at Mid-Ohio. Is he healthy enough to return? Or is this another Kurt Busch situation?

And finally, is Nashville (now including Broadway), a good fit for the series new decider?
