So, just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for the Scuderia, how about a double DNF around a castle while they were winning?

Yes, F1’s travelling circus headed to Baku for the Azerbaijan GP, and in it, Ferrari had another golden chance to stop the bleeding, only for Carlos Sainz Jr’s hydraulics to fail, and then Charles Leclerc’s engine to suffer a spectacular engine blowout to gift wrap Max Verstappen the easiest of wins! We break it down and we roast Ferrari over an open fire over it!

We also talk porpoising and a new low for the series and its cars with Lewis Hamilton struggling to get out of his car after the back pain he experienced on the streets were so great his arse went numb. We discuss the difficult political decisions we could get as a result of a potential FIA intervention and the secret that the teams may or may not have turned down a minimum height rule last year. Whoops.

We also discuss some great midfield performances as Sebastian vettel rebuilt the Church of Dre with a stonking P6, behind Pierre Gasly in 5th! Oh, and Ferrari’s broke down. A lot. Did we mention that? All that on Motorsport101!
