Seriously I don't know how that YouTube channel sources those radio messages but it's so freaking awesome. We need more of this in the actual broadcast lol. Though of course I understand the reason why they are not all broadcasted.

I love how the "blue flags" calls start off calm, just telling race control exactly how close he is and then as it all gets a bit "will we, won't we get there" at the end it's shouty swearing calls as the pressure builds.

These radio call edits are really good to show how much of a relationship there is between driver and engineer during the race.
Turbo says "Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools." oh, and "The Dutch fans are drunk. Maybe"

I think it might be the audio is taken from the F1tv Hamilton onboard channel, with some cuts 'context' left in editing around the radio conversations. Well done, and nice to have.

How good a race engineer is Pete Bonnigton. The guy is just calmness personified in every situation, gives the relevent information at all times (which all will do) but also says things like "abrasion band" instead of graining so as not to spook the driver, making him feel like he`s not the only one struggling with the tyres, advising him to use engine braking/diff settings more to help.
Having him as your corner guy must benefit more than any of us can probably imagine.
Really good listening to that considering all the external factors, Nikis passing, it`s Monoco, Max up his proverbial, it`s Monoco...

Ola Källenius, new chairman of Daimler Group, confirmed that Mercedes will continue participating in F1 until at least 2025.

It was interesting to me how there didn't seem to be a great deal of coaching compared with radio transmissions to other drivers that I've heard in the past, which seemed to be full of things such as "you're slow on the exit from turn 4, take a different line, brake later into turn 6" etc. Maybe Monaco just doesn't have enough room for there to be any need for that sort of coaching.

Lewis was a guest on Netflix' My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman. His episode was released yesterday. It is good fun, and here's a teaser

A good look at the teams front suspension philosophy.
