Niki Lauda and James Hunt tribute
Paying homage to one of the greats, Niki Lauda. We get into the rivalry between himself and James Hunt. They were so different but alike in many regards. James drove Niki to constantly chase perfection even after a near death experience. The evolution of the sport on and off the track and where do we rank Senna, Prost, Vettel, and Lauda?
Max Verstappen regains the championship lead in Turkey
Valtteri Bottas gets his 10th Formula 1 win of his career in a stellar drive from start to finish. With wet conditions and the track not drying as fast as expected, there were glimpses of hope for Lewis Hamilton not having to pit, but after not following orders and losing pace, the team brought him in, ultimately costing him two places. Strong finish for Red Bull as they had Max and Checo finish 2nd and third.
We now look to Austin, Texas with Lewis trailing by 6 points in the drivers championship. Will the quest for Lewis Hamilton's record breaking 8th championship go down to the last race of the season, or when looking back will Baku come back to haunt him?

Who will be the team that surprises us the most heading into a new era of Formula 1?
Lewis Hamilton Mr. 100
Lewis Hamilton is in a class of his own with his 100th race win in Formula 1. Finally eclipsing the century mark with a roller coaster race in Sochi. Mercedes made the right decision today and it paid off.
Lando Norris got his first pole and was laps away from a P1 finish if he had listened to his team. Ultimately it's a learning opportunity for the young Brit.
The Championship battle is closer than ever between Max and Lewis, will it come down to the last race?

My first stop after the race
I love to listen to these two Hamil-stans make excuses. Put it on wax!
***Update from Nathan Ruyle (pronounced Rule)***Thanks for the shout out on the last pod Seriously I do love the show and I stand corrected on Chris’ stan status. I’m just a couple years into F1 and loving every minute. Let me know if you ever want someone who doesn’t hate Super Max to hop in and show some love for the future champ.
When I tried it I thought it was going to be a bit slow. However it the podcast grabbed my attention quickly. Would highly recommend. -Raul
Formula 1 is an underrated sport! It’s dope to see a podcast on it!
