Alt+F1: 85 - Canadian GP & European GP Prerace 2016

E3 and F1 may sound similar, but nowhere in Los Angeles could we learn that Vettel's a Flock of Seagulls fan, see Max continue to earn his stripes, and watch the Wall of Champions claim a few more victims. Plus... BAKU!

Alt+F1 is a weekly Formula 1 podcast from your friends at Giant Bomb. We run down the twists and turns of Earth's fastest and most expensive urinating contest. Join us for race recaps, news from the wide world of racing and the latest on Pastor Maldonado.

The Baku circuit shows that if you have enough money safety is apparently not an issue, that stretch of track next to the old city wall is so narrow it would never be able to be classed as a grade 1 track by the FIA.

Also that "mistake" from vettel on the lap before the VSC caused by seagulls

I don't know what else Rosberg could do at the start; if you look at his onboard he would have had to lift enormously to somehow slot in behind Hamilton. Also in the post-race green room thing Hamilton was talking about how much understeer there was in T1 and how that was why he ran wide into Rosberg, so it seemed like he had at least some sense that it was his mistake.

@drewbert Alonso wasn't on the radio asking if he could retire the car, he was asking if he could pit. Alonso did 52 laps on the soft tire, compared to Hamilton's 46 laps.
