    • If you had to assign one persona each to Tom and Damon.... who would be Smashie and who would be Nicey? (Kids might need to google those names)

    • Can I make a thumbnail suggestion? The bottom bit is the exact same red as the time bar on HUworld. So if I have already watched the episode the red bar shows up at the bottom but I can't see it against the colour of your thumbnail. Was especially frustrating yesterday as I was skimming through older podcasts to see if there's any I missed haha. Just a quality of life complaint, otherwise great show!

  • Can we have Gerhard Berger on every week please? So many great anecdotes and told in such a humorous way.

  • These discussions between Damon & Gerhard are solid gold. When he was talking about the waning years of his career, I was thinking of how razor thin winning talent is in F1. The apex of ones career could be a year or it could be several. But when that proper mixture of talent and opportunity runs out, it’s difficult to match others in their prime. Great discussion. Wise thoughts from experience.

  • 38:55 you can tell you took that to heart as it was Wurz tryig to avoid you who hit Diniz and caused him to flip.

  • I love these podcasts, Tom & Hill just come across as a modern day Smashie & Nicey (Paul Whitehouse and Harry Enfield) especially when they read the adds. Not sure who would be Smashie and who would be Nicey... open to suggestions :P

  • 7.47 : "for those who aren't aware , it's right on the south coast of Portugal , it's probably the most southern bits you can get to in Europe" . Wrong . Parts of Spain are more to the south , one look at the map of the Iberian peninsula will make that clear . Also parts of Italy and Greece are more to the south . "For those who aren't aware" ...... .

  • Michael: Hey you passed me on the outside, thats dangerous! Also Michael: Ill just try to drive a fellow driver into the pit wall, that's safe. Also Gerhard, Indy raced in the wet just as often as F1...on ROAD COURSES. Just on Ovals they dont and lets be for real, F1 wouldn't do that either.

  • Re Tom's jet lag comment. Eat your final meal in the UK at local time before you go - so if you depart early afternoon UK, you have lunch before you go. Don't eat anything on the plane - this is the difficult bit, and you get strange looks from the airline staff trying to serve you meals. When you arrive, eat the meal that's due at local time. I'm guessing Japan is around 15hr flight time, with the 8hr time difference that would also be around lunchtime. It completely gets rid of the jet lag (for me at least), but you do get quite hungry on the way :-)
