Yes! I needed this!

NEEDED THIS.

Thanks, Drew and Danny! :D

EDIT: Despite loving most forms of beef, I am anti-corned beef. And I have a lot of Irish ancestry in me, boy-o.

EH PASTOR! PASTOR MALDONADO!

I was worried I wouldn't have a podcast ready to go for tomorrow, hurrah.

As for the Pastor cult... I still haven't watched a single race but Maldonado is my favorite race man. You did this!!

Posted by AMyggen

Nice! Gonna save this for work tomorrow.

I am a fan of these video clip show notes. Thanks Drew! Nyyyooooooooooom!

Don't take this the wrong way, but I really couldn't care less about racing at all. F1, NASCAR, the kids at my school who race their bikes to the burger joint, all of it. I do not care at all about racing.

Yet for some reason I absolutely love this podcast. It's like following a soap opera with all the team based intrigue, in-fighting, and betrayal. I have no idea who this "Hamilton" fellow is, but I felt real bad for him getting screwed over a few podcasts ago and I'm hoping he makes a heroic comeback.

It's fun to sing Pastor, Pastor Maldonado, but it's fun to say Nico Hulkenberg!

@drewbert: drew what were you trying to say after buongiorno at the start?

Edit- Wait so in the USA hash in not an abbreviation of hashish? And Danny you can find hashish of various quality, why did you smoke crappy stuff?

This podcast sounds different somehow and I'm not talking about the post-PAX soreness.

Yay! Italian food is an easy meal to match with this race.

@dannyodwyer: As a New Yorker, your accent is pretty decent. Although, since I can actually understand the words that are coming out of your mouth, you loose a little of the authenticity. Youse guys are doing a pretty good job. Keep it up.

It really does look like a seagull, but apparently it's just the nose of the car bent backwards.

Posted by bboymaestro

Cool out.

Posted by T_wester

Racing podcast, yeah!

Posted by DukesT3

Whatever that meal is in the thumbnail looks fucking delicious!

Posted by burgavo

wait, what's up with J.P? oh he has the lap record at monza, for a minute I thought Montoya might come back to f1 with Haas. Montoya is probably my favourite driver in recent history because he was quite outspoken.

Any way thanx for the podcast guys looking forward to monza.

Cheers!

More random attempts at accents! More!!!! :D

don't forget about formula E next weekend

EDIT: oh you mentioned it right at the end

Posted by cooljammer00

Oh boy, as an F1 lurker from NYC, that JP email slayed me.

I did enjoy the accent tourism with Drew and Danny, though.

Edited by makkuwata

Danny's Belfast is tragically accurate.

The seagull video is the best video on the entire internet. I watch it every day. It's the nose cone damaged and peeled upwards though, not an actual seagull. Fooled me for a while though, and it obviously caught the commentator out. I love how so much happens at once, the commentators brain & mouth are having a hard time keeping up.

yeah man, it's kinda like wrestling... the competition may or may not always bbe there, but it's about the storylines.

About Monza, it is one of my favorite tracks, the race itself is quite fast, there have been years that the whole race took only a bit more then an hour.

It also has the record of the fastest speed record for a F1 car during a race: 372.6 km/h or 231.5 mph

It also has the record of the fastest avarage speed of a F1 car during a racing lap: 262.2 km/h or 162.9 mph

About the track, I have been there once, what really impressed me was how steep the bunked corners on the old oval really are, they look like a wall. There is no way modern cards can race there.

One of the most crazy incidents what at the last lap on the finishing line, Christian Fittipaldi, crashes, does a complete loop and gets the checked flag in the car still running.

There were some really good classic Monza races as well, during the time before DRS and KERS when it was really impossible to pass, people during the year were waiting for the Monza race because we know that at least there we would see some overtaking actions.

If you wanna see how the F1 cars used to race on the Original Monza oval + mixed track I suggest watching the movie "Grand Prix", before "Rush" it was the best movie about F1.

I also remember that the Monza race on 2001, was the first F1 race after 9/11 incident, and there were some doubts before the race if it would actually happen, and lots of cars had mourning signs, Ferrari raced without any sponsor signs and a black nose.

And hey I own a Vita and love F1, I have the original F1 game for the Vita and it is not good. There is no reason to play that if you can play on the PC with a real controller or even better with a racing wheel.

I also remember those old Quick looks of F1 games on GB, those were really cringeworthy for someone who were F1 fans, but fun to watch anyway.

This is the oval + mixed track from the 50s and 60s:

Not only the oval was amazing but the mixed part had no chicanes to slowdown the corners, was almost flat-out all the time.

I feel like most of the F1 enthusiasts already prefer PC, both for graphics and for a wider range of racing controllers.

Also regarding alcohol, in Canada you are allowed to consume as a minor, but only with permission/supervision of a legal parent/guardian.

Posted by Rowr

@clush: Hah, i was actually thinking the same thing when I was writing it weirdly enough. I definitely prefer F1 though.

Posted by Ford_Dent

I am pretty impressed by Danny's New York accent.

Posted by ehbunner

I could be wrong but by the way Danny described the American version of "hash" meaning good quality in America, sounds like he might be confusing the word kush with hash, but I'm not American, I've just never heard the word hash used to describe quality just to describe any quality pressed weed/resin and I do know that a good amount of people use the word kush to describe good weed though

They widened the parabolica to meet the safty requirements of bikers. Monza is in Dire Straits and need every cash grab they can get their hands on. For open wheel racing it sucks.

I couldn't find an 'Alt+F1' discussion board to post this in but Steam has F1 2013 on sale for $16.99 this weekend.

The 2005 Italian Grand Prix was the first I attended when I was 11 years old. I still remember the insane sound of the V10s down the main straight. Since then I've been to 9 Australian GPs from 2006 to 2014. Anyone here attended a GP before? If not, I highly recommend it.

I've been to Silverstone once. My ears are still ringing from that experience!

I was at Monaco 2011. I had absolutely no idea what was happening but it was amazing.

Red Flags. Ambulances. Some Geordie with a megaphone taking the piss out of all the drivers and pundits and getting reactions from them.

Most countries it's illegal to purchase not drink underage.

And in Lithuania and most eastern Europe drunk driving used to be and still is a huge problem, so it's taken very seriously.

And Oh My GOD the accents!

I went to Jacarepagua, Interlagos, Monza and Spa.

I have been to several other circuits to see other categories like MotoGP, Indycar, 24 hours GT, etc.

Spaghetti for breakfast woo!

Oh goodness, Drew's accents are absolutely bonkers!

Man, the sound of those 'old' engines...

Confession: I only listen for the accent impersonations.

Edited by ouvintes

Let's hope Robby is alright

Drew & Danny should do a livechat during races, like Sidepodcast do, would be awesome.

Posted by Corwag

@dannyodwyer @drewbert Pleassseeeee more accents while reading emails. I can't remember when I laughed so hard!

Posted by MakeWitheFunny

There was an episode of Top Gear that had JPM in it, talking about the difference between F1 and NASCAR that was pretty interesting. I think it's on Netflix, but fair warning it has Matt LeBlanc in it:)
