Well… that was a smooth weekend.

The boys are back to talk Saudi Arabia for Round 2 of the F1 2022 Championship and the most newsworthy part of the weekend, landed on Friday night. A suicide drone hitting a local oil refinery raised a lot of concern over safety, including a 4 hour long driver meeting with the teams, the boss, and the track promoters. We discuss it all in the middle of the show.

Oh, and we had a race too! And it was actually pretty good! Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc had another superb fight for the win, and this time it was Max that came out on top. We talk that, some of the DRS chess tactics used, and what this means for the title fight.

We also talk on the nasty incident in Qualifying where Mick Schumacher spun out at a chicane in a 32G crash. More questions asked about the safety of a 155mph average speed street circuit. Funny that.

And finally, more on Mercedes struggles. George Russell with a very lonely 5th, but Lewis Hamilton knocked out in Q1 on merit for the first time in nearly 13 years. How did we get to this point, and is there any saving them?

All that and more on a loaded Motorsport101.
