What do you have forus an either? So I don't know if you guys noticed if one has also jumpedinto the NFD craze with some Anfisa wital for vital first run lands firstrun, and so let's do you guys know what ftes are Imean kind of, so an NFD is basically scam and the scavalcare you have a fileand any file that you want to sell to someone right could be a jpeg filecould be an audio file, could be a Jeff. I tried to sell an NFD and I was prettyunsuccessful in doing that, and I tell you about my, but with nfd, you essentially create atoken for your item on the block tin on the etherium Blockchain, and then thattoken is what gets sold so on the ITERUM blockchain. You can havecontract where you essentially sell one token and get another token, and one ofthe token can be money. Another token can be some token ized form of art, butfirst of all, that token is completely different from the actual thing. Andsecondly, there is many etherium blockchains there isn't just one blockchain. So you essentially have this token Tokenz form of art and you canexchange it for a therium token, which essentially can beconverted to money. But the token is not the real thing. First of all, it'sa token ized form of that art and it signed by the key of the person who'sselling it. We wait with you so you're...

...telling me that I basically get nothingat return right. You don't get anything written, so Jack Dorsey sold his firstweed for two and a half million. You can just read to eat that for free, youcan take a screen shot of tile. I took a screen shot. I took a big print outof that. Just to make sure that I could have something physical, but yeah. Youcan do that and the worst thing is it's not even exclusive. If you see the FNS,the mental first, one, the selling two and fifty editions of it so and eachedition has each edition makes sense right. Yes, definitely they on to make as much money aspossible right O. Well, I don't know if you guys saw this. Snoop dog tried tosell a bunch of FTSE and he managed to sell some pretty successfully, butthere was this one n ft where he tried to sell twenty thousand copies for fivehundred dollars. That's justten billion dollars if he sells them, but I washappy to see that he could only sell less than five hundred K dollars worthof it. Yeah there's is another treat that I saw that somebody like created these pixellots of all the teams and all the drivers, and basically they are tryingto sell an piece for those. So basically you don't even own that artright you're, just you just you just own some ghost representation of itobviously nobody's bought anything from this side but good for him. He spent a lot of time inLatine. It's a point for creativity at this point rig like what is the mostsporadic and the craziest thing you can sell. Is it can you make money, or canyou make fools a head of people you? What or to INSNARE is the game. I thinkthat's that's what NFD is, and there is also it's pretty interesting. Howsometimes NF are implemented so sometimes it's a token of the actualbites of the file, but sometimes they'll host that you are a on somewebsite and then the token is just a token of that link. So if they takethat Linton, then your fun. Oh, it's a crazy! Imagine having an auctionfor this. That's that's going to be like the penultimate like. Okay. Now weyeah in I think, buying n FT is the ultimate just showing people that youhave fuck you money, because it's like reseal values completely drops to zeroimmediately. So so let me tell you about my experience with trying to sellan NFD. I try to make an aft just converting token izing, that file costfifty dollars in etherium transaction fee, so that is just that is just thetransaction. So that's people who are mining or staking a therium, and thatis just those people making money talking about making money. I've heardthat if one is planning to make a lot of money at Saudi Arabia yeah, why notI mean I think after Hamilton said this dialogue, cashes king, I mean any bit of you know: What's theworld like self respect for the sport that it might have like, let's servethe fans, that's gone away at this point. Cash is t and on one side theystart having discussions about, let races one and inclusiveness and BlahBlah Blah, and then they go to the only countries where everything that they'vesaid is not possible and raise there. Yeah, let's get chopping man, let's getsopping we heard about in reporters lately, I've never mind. I was going tosay, or women drivers allowed to raise, obviously only in Saudi he have theygot to have a male passenger. Also with...

...just a just gintle the husband, thewoman is like strapped to the engine behind I'm, not I'm not saying it'sonly the husband, it could be their new born child. It has to be a male person.That's that's abort yeah, so yeah, it's going to! I don'tknow. I don't agree with. I'm kind ofdisappointed with FIA that, on one hand, they try to you know bringin some good initiatives which they started with. You know having that preend racism for to shoot that they have. I mean yeah, it's more, it's mostly PR,but at least they are trying to send some message out there. But you knowthis is just hypocrisy at its finest and I mean for all the hate that I giveHamilton, and I mean this is one spence that I like about him and he's he'scome out and said this as well, that he recognizes that there is value to beingat the position that he is and if he's not using his position to vice opinions-and you know, sway people in the good direction, then what good is thatposition and he's doing that? So for all the aid that I have towards him asa early on the race brack, this just counterbalance is all of it because atthe end of the day is fighting for the good, Oh yeah, but about the South GP.I mean I don't even like the track. It's literally a NASCAR TRA gone fancy. You know, as I said, guys good in acircuit. You know I I I million over. Yes, just justthink just think of a thing where maybe the Mascaro was made by someone who'stwenty years old and you know, can Grossett lines this one's just drawn bya two year old. So the Straits are just a bit really, that's that's about it.It looks like a hair pin, like you know, have you seen like that the typic longhair pin tat. If you just attach that to open ends,that's about it! That's that's to try. I mean it's got. Everything right isgot two straight. It's called one hair point, an that's a pretty interestingtrack. Yeah I mean it's pretty clear why the raceson the calendar is to fill their pockets. I mean yeah, nothing much more to say about that.Men were talking about races. What we have twenty three races on the calendaror something along those lines who, at I, fire decided to have three week gapand then scome everything together towards the Tis absolutely stupid. Imean you have the first race, which was surprisingly very exciting for thefirst rays for ever on, yeah and then then absolutely nothing crickets likethere's, there's three weeks of a gap everyone's poured at home. Yeah, Idon't get an did. You see the calendar, I was the end of the season. They havetwo triple headers yeah. who was in charge of this? I mean I'm guessingit's ground, availability or whatever, and I now availability and what not,but I feel for the drivers and the teams, because I mean while they will,if I is trying to make money out of the scheduling and maybe benefit of doubtto them, whatever they've got going at there at the end of the day. Anyone who's on the logistic side ishaving an Ihme, Oh yeah, yeah for sure the other good part is it's good for us,because we get to squeeze in two more episodes in this week for our fan. So Iam not a yeah yeah. I mean that's, that's not too bad. What's this, butbut switching is what's this new extreme e thing that I've been seeingall over the Internet, he extremely doesn't have years man, we so t, know the Bane anyways yeahextreme yeah. That was something basically extreme me. Is this new raceseries for Electric Suvs that they've started to...

...so called? You know, bring climatechange to the forefront and you know, spread awareness of climate chain, sothey're going to do like six races. I think at all. The locations where, likethe climate change currently can be seen like the effects of the ClimateChin can carty be seen. I think they have races at it started with SaudiArabia. I don't know why you, okay so sometimes at. I think they wanted totalk about desertification, so obviously they have to go to SauteArabia. For that there's no other country which just desert they did. Thefirst was that the exciting thing about it is that like, if you see the teamsto see the qualification for it, it basically was Rosbeck was Hamilton.Again I mean I when I saw the reason was I go for se right YEP? They bothhave teams, I think Hamilton team one in this now sorry does work team, oneHamilton's team took pool, it was kind of fun. I kind of saw some clips for it.It's a pretty weird format for qualifications. They like do theychange drivers in the race and they have like one meal and one femaledriver and for qualifications. They have to switch cars. I mean a switchdrivers between laps or they have to do two laps one lap with the first driverand the switch to the second driver. How many labs do they go? Do theychange cars like for me like e Ar you know it can't go the whole race andthey have to switch cards. Do they just have twenty hours of pet? Stop that fun right like the driver, a lapof a couple laps and then they get into the pit, and then you know they put onthe charger and everybody's like sitting. You know and imagine it's likea real charging station. So there's only two tesla super charges and he afive cars waiting to charge and one of the super charges is be nice to bysomeone yeah, I don't so speaking of extreme cars andelectric vehicles. First of all, I don't understand in the Wen diagram ofpeople who, like extreme cars and people like electric weekers, I don't Idon't know if there is even an intersection of that right. Well,apparently, there is right, I think, there's this new hummer, that's comingout right, yeah, so GM C is coming out with a new electric hammer. It's goingto be like hammer is the classic little deck mid life crisis car. I don't know who would want that. Whowould say that I want a Hubbert, but I want an electric version of a huber.I'd buy one! Why not, because, because why? Why would I buy a regular car whenI can buy something that have to charge every half a a miyan? It also it'sgoing to cost like a hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Wow, that's yeah! When you getting one okay yeah, Imean as soon as I get my brains back. I think we need to start a patron sonfor this yeah and they claim that it's going togo more than three hundred miles. I don't know how, but let's see thatwould actually not be bad. You know if they can make a hummer go as long asthree hundred miles. Man Jokes, I said that's actually a good thing. I don'tknow what how huge the battery on that thing is going to be and how long it'sgoing to take to charge that yeah, but three hundred miles for a hummer, yeahyeah. That would be good, though I, as you said you know like I could totallyimagine it being having like a huge patree, probably like a treelet, whichit like halls behind so yeah. I think they're trying to addressa similar market as the cyber truck man. I bet that's who we are planning tocomplete. What what abomination is that truck man? I don't I don't understand.I don't hear what people seem to like it for some reason and I'm on that side.So way it's to against so on on this on...

...this recording it's I like the design, yeah I've already converted man, so itis, I will give it that it is different from any other car I've ever seen. Yeah.Definitely I can. I can say that I guess I can see that for me now I mean for me: It's it's thefact that it's the non conventional design- and you know it's not the usual-that every em tries to do yeah an and the shape is such that if I go crazyand I if I want to run people over it's like the perfect, I don't for the sociopath- cares about theenvironment, exactly a I can tell it, but coming coming backto one a D and it's controversies are in court, as we've been talking about,you can't take away one of the biggest controversies that that started of thisyear, right, Masai, that guy that I gad I don't know what to talk about him. Imean the whole video that surface I mean I I don't know where to start so.First of all the video comes out. I hope everyone knows a about. You knowwhat what I'm talking about. Yewes jokes ified, I mean Mospa, I think itwas it was. It was not the right thing to do. He never should have posted itonline. There's. There was a lot of shady stuff that was going on behindthis. So apparently it turns out that when that video came out, you know.Obviously there was a lot of outrage. People were, you know asking has todrop him as a driver and everything. So there came out a tweet from that girlwho was in the video, and she was like you know, seeing that we are justfriends. It was just a part of the joke and everything but, like obviously,editors were trying to investigate this, and people were, like you know,literally following a twitter and kind of, were trying to pick up bread crumbsfrom there. So yeah like a few days later, she was talking a lot like shewas treating a lot about. You know how it wasn't: Okay, she was beingthreatened and everything because you know obviously like Papa as pen, ispretty much. What do you call a Russian Oliar, so you know how it goes. I don'tknow. I know our guests starts on this because I know we were talking of lineabout this radio with him to ruth your thoughts on the video. So by the way,when I said the video was awesome, I thought you were talking about thevideo of him, spinning off the track, yeah that was Dempesy, and then I waslike Shit. That's probably not the right, they don't ewent. I mean it'spretty weird that he would post something like that. I mean like it'sfucked up. That is doing something like it, but why post a video yeah I mean,especially when you know he's about to make a debut on the world stage, and what Ma didn't think that this wasprobably the right idea, but then this isn't the first time he's messed upright, like I think. As soon as this came out there were there or news. Idon't know if true or not, but like he's done such stupid stuff in the pastas well yeah, I think one and of the track, both because even on track, Ithink pretty much. He was like, as your discussed in the last episode where heyou get suspended. If you like, you know, accumulate a lot of penati pointsby causing some safety incidents.

Masapo was very close to that. I thinkhe was away just one point away from it to from getting a race band and, likehe has done a lot of dangerous shit recently, you know pushing open in offthe road while racing not leaving space at corners while battling and yeah he'snot liked around the Paduk at all. I think you have to be an adrenal andjunkie to be into a on racing in the first place. So I think that's what alot of these people get their kicks from and he's not thinking that. Howwill this affect my future? How will this attack my long term he's like he'sin a speeding car at three hundred plus kilometers for our right? He doesn'tcare. That's that's what he gets his kick out of yeah. I think thedifference between him and others are like as soon as the others are off thetrack. There there a donal in subsides, and they realize that, like normal lifebegan for him, I think it's always there, because I'm pretty sure he'sspinning of that right because he never says my concept is henever finishes a race, at least from his one career. He never finishes Eris,so he still has those laps to finish, and I think he's just doing it off thattime. That makes perfect sense, but I love redit for the names thatthat you know he's created, he's created a world record, apparently thathe's the shortest distance travelled on an Fenrik, the first pinning. So he wasn't the one driving the car inthat radio, though right like he was on the passenger she and Remson thepassenger see he was in the passenger, see if somebody was so. I think hisfaith actually doesn't show up in the video. Just his infamous hand does becausehe's he's pretty lost in that video. I mean, if he's the one driving, thenthis is all the more messed up than just the video part of it. Yeah I'veseen it long ago. I don't really like recall the details. It's not somethingthat I really want to register in my mind, yeah, but I mean you can't you can't ignoreharses contribution to the controversy. If you're talking about MAZAPIL mean itgoes, it goes backwards, but then with us comes Rakal and then all the way torich energy, it it's the long, Cralo yeah. You know the surprising thing islike: When Lance troll had come into the sport, everybody was really pissedoff. You know, for people who don't know a lance roll is basically the kidof the billionaire laden stroll who bought a first India, which originallywas for sorry who bought see. I keep forgetting man. They this team justkeeps changing its name. That was four center just two years ago. It wasracing point some last year or something and this year that is AstonWart and tracing anyways. So a land roll of board force India and he namedit as a racing point that was obviously a temporary name. They were trying tofind you know better long term deal with some other automotive companiesthat they could collaborate with for branding and they found so basicallyLaden Roll Board Austin Martin. He bought a minorities, take in it so yeahthey decided to rename the team as Aston Martin but yeah. Coming back tothe roopit. When Lance toll came and everybody was Super Tostoff, you knowsaying that he is just a billionaire scared. You know he basically just portthe seat and there are more deserving people out there and everything. Butliterally it's like everything that people eediot blamed lands for this GuyMasapo is filling his shoes entirely like everything that people thoughtlands would be Mazapil is making sure that he lives up to the intepretation.The thing which troll, though, is like he's, proved himself: Oh yeah for shotmazepas new, although I don't have any...

...hopes from him. Yeah he's going to keepspinning anyways, but strolls Prune himself. So I, yes, he did get a seat by justbuying it, but he's you know, shut his critics down by showing whathe can do on the tribe, and I was one of those, whereas like Oh yeah,nepotism, whatever whatever, but immediately after that one. I actuallylooked his history and track record up. I mean not just a one. I mean he's donegood in the past as well yeah, but this guy, just spins so and and the sponsors that sort of comein with him to right, like Racah's. That's one of the shadiest sponsorshipdears that I've ever seen in this hey come on. That's not the shades has has,I think, pretty much holds the record for all the shady deals that go by in afun. You remember right, Recantin, which O that was, that was a whole load ofbullshit. I mean when even when this announcement was made, I remember likethere were so many discussions on readed about this, that you know,people who are obviously the keyboard investigators were trying to track downwhat retch energy is, and they basically tried to. You know findtheir filings with whatever the qualanders in the UK for SEC and theyfound out the address that was agested for the company and they were lookingthrough Google Street view to find what's actually there. Obviously, therewas this really shitty. Building at that address and nothing really existedand people were obviously trying to. You know, buy even a single can of theenergy. They were cleaving that they were a computer ter of red bill, andyou know they had an energy drink which was better and obviously they wanted tomake a team that is better than red will. But Yeah you couldn't even tie asingle can of that shit, were they based or did they claim to be based inthe US? I think not. I think they would be soft, UK yeah. Okay, I think it'snot a problem with rich energy. I mean their business might have been doinggood, but then has was a so under performing that they lost all theirmoney and their company itself went back. o Man seen that that guy that somethingWilliam Story, I think his name was and Yeah Water Story here at me that guyfirst of a looked, I don't know like a Amis Guy, started a business orsomething like that because he as be it was like like right here and that guyit's everything is shady about it. I mean a lot of people say that he wasn'tactually even the COU. He probably was just hired to play. That role. This,moreover, seemed like a money laundering scheme that you knowsomebody was just trying to watch their hidden earnings or something like that,but I mean that goes on and I fund with all teams. I mean. What do you thinkmission then now is what do you think that a better tomorrow or whatever?That is no something that McLaren also has someshed sponsor like that right? I think it's basically Tomoca company maskingas another company, because Fontin Tobacco and alcohol advertising yeahand they can't have a mission winnow on their Levari, so they are just tryingthese weird a warmia stuff on the Livar to make it look like mission Winolia,we just drop paint but yeah rich enter. I mean I obviouslydecided not to spend, spend too much time on them. I mean all myinteractions of horses, shady stuff has been through drive to survive most ofit. I mean other and and me getting curious after that, but ye that thatrich energy stuff or some some good...

...stuff, but then came Uraka. So, Oh wow,that that is some I mean that is brilliant. I mean I respect them, foryou know the ingenuity that they put in that you know just change the log ofthe company so that we can put the rushing colors on the girl. It makesperfect sense right. I mean some background herebefore before we again start on rambling, but like basically because of the Anti doping,all the other sport stuff, that Russia is being accused of the Russian flag. Basically is bannedfrom sports, and so is it from F one, and you can't have it on the liveriesor you know anywhere else, but the ingenuity that to racal is theyjust changed their lower design to look like a Russian flag and well now you are mysponsors. I got to have your logo on the car. Well, my American carnal lookslike that's what I bordese only amercing team on the crack covered and Russian colors. I love theidem. So what what makes them American so basically has Jean House who is theowner of horse, which is a CNC company. I think right and I think that they're,pretty famous here, I think Jean- has has been involved in motor sports inNascar. I think a lot and I think after spending a couple years, you knowhaving a pretty good team actually in Nascar Genthe thiner, who is basicallythe team principle of has kind of approached him to you know start a newteam in f one and then he decided to you know why not like we have beensuccessful at Nascar. We can do this at a unas, but apparently not as you cansee, with what's happening right now. So speaking of NASCAR, what does whatdo you guys and what is the typical Fan Fan? Think of NASCAR, I can't commentto much is now we're going to have the South Arabia race, which is Nascar to Vietnam, is kind of going to be thatway. You remember that, like triangle shape too long mascot, I think people at least on fans are not bigfans of NASCAR. As far as you know, it goes because I mean you just take aleft turn and there is the step to yeah and you fish the race. That's ityeah. I don't know why it's NASCAR is considered more of a white trash racingyeah. I guess it's because probably of the people who go to see those racesyeah feel, like everyone, has a classier audience. Clearly right, I can hear I can hear the keyboard keysclicking right now. People are furiously emailing Gus, but now I mean my only positive thingabout Nasca is the endore, because it's won like some crazy number of laps thatyou go around it. So that's. That's the only good part about that race thatit's actually endurance of being in that car. No, but actually it does takea lot of skill. I mean, if you look at the DASIS. A lot of the skill in thesport is about just maintaining your peace and keeping the right distancebehind the car ahead. A few because you know you want to gain as well draft asyou can and when the moment is right, you go for that overtake and overtakesa NASCAR, crazy euro they're. You know just flying by the track at full,throttle throughout the race and...

...there's no margin afero at all. You lets the pit stops are in Ta civilizedASER. I've seen tire flying of anything, someguy w trying an I like dwawer safety in this I feel like it must. There is anelement of safety in having a nice roof over your head, though yeah and youdon't get in a fun Yep yeah. Definitely I E H and one more thing. I think theyhave a short degree. I think they just have one guy doing everything or twoguys, one guys like refel and one guy changing the tires, and he and Icunning around the car, changing all the triers and yeah. They sometimes you know start refeeling even before the car stops like whiles starting to pit one of the petshop workers like runs and tries to loosen the you know or open the flapfor the fuel so that they can get a small hedge type. As that, Nasceris thesame one I mean. I agree that I haven't seen much butNASCERIS the same one where the driver also gets out- and all of this ishappening right because it takes quite some time, but is it a different sport?I there's so many car reasons. I think we just lost a few hundredpeople come back, come back you I we we goback to one stuff, come back! LASKA NASCAR is amazing, it's like, Oh, whydon't I see it more. You might as well see the marvel races. Oh Yeah, those are fun. Have you seenthose a few? I I don't. I can't say I have many is exactly one I feel likethey're, all the same. Yeah dose. Is it's yeah? It is it'spretty fun. You know I mean the this. This channel, I mean for people whodon't know there's this channel on Youtube. I think they are. These arethe use to touch guys who run that channel and I think it's I don't knowhow to pronounce it, because it's a Dutch name but jealous yell is, I don'tknow how it's pronounced. anyways, something marwell run, someone's Wabilruns and they basically have this track and they have so. They basically usegravity to turn those marbles through the track and at the end of the trackthey have this conveyer belt, which you know catch those marbles back to thestart at the top and then yeah the marbles keep rolling it round.So I think back when Formula E and form Laon was, you know, did tocoronaviruses year. It was delate and races were. It was pretty uncertainwhen the next place is going to be these guys kind of partnered up withformula e and the basicallyy got the rights for allthe graphic overlays for formula e, the team names and everything, and theywere pretty much running. You know all the different GPS with like proferedcommentory and everything and yeah. It was a lot of fun. I mean they'vebrilliantly done it it. It sounds silly, but yeah, it's! No! It's weird for me it was. It was a bit weird inthe sense that I'm actually confused how the white marble got over and aheadof the green marble. I mean I'm just taking color and everybody get thepoint, because it's it's just two marbles how how is one overtaking theother if gravity works, the same on board but but yeah, and then the greenover takes white again, so it's not at all monotone think they they're to totheir credit. I think they do a good job designing in an interesting tractand also just making it interesting with the commentary. ATRACT sometimeskind of splits the marbles into...

...different parts, and that's why theycan one of them can come ahead. I mean that there's also a lot of skillinvolved. Obviously yeah I know, but the other fun part to add to that point.Truth is that they also make like a grand stand, and you know audience madeout of marbles to ride in the background. Oh Yeah. Yes, just did dothat. So I didn't notice that yeah guys check it. Our town, you tubesearch for Marville, runs yeah. It is pretty entertaining I mean you haven't, got anything to doin this break any years. Ra I mean a part o listening o this podcast. So yeah did. You Watch drive to surviveby the way, yeah that and then all the drama that ts likes to put it in yeah some point: they over examitionthree was just some dramatic music playing in thebackground and something going yeah, it's pretty much a Hollywood movie. Imean that's what it's designed for right, like I think it's a smart moveover all to open new fans. Netflix is the new thing in so like everybody isyou know no, where to go at you know at the moment, so people are on Netflix. Ithink it makes sense to invest so much in making this documentary. I don't want to call it a documentary.It's I don't know what to call it. anyways, though I mean yeah, they add the drama becausethey want to get attention of new fans so that people start following. I feelit's in a way good for the sport. I mean they do over dramatize stuff. They docreate these story lines which don't exist, but overall, I think it's goodfor the sport as more People Watch. I think that will only bring mood yeah. Iguess like cringe is what probably sells they know that and for someonelike us, we are pro we are anyways watching the sports or we may not likethe series, even though may will watch it or not, but, like I'm pretty sure,they've done their market research and they know that this is what gets fanson to or create new fans are so sure this is probably what's working? Didyou watch sireland tried to survive Yeah Dud, I at one point I literallywas the director should go, not cut but like pause and then be likejust cry: Dude just cry. Take five minutes in you, it seemed as if he wasgoing through a break up or something man like he's just gotten off a verylong relationship yeah, I think Christian or someone evenmentioned it. It's just like seeing a very side break up or seeing yourgirlfriend just go away, but she's still going to be around sort of thingor something like that, and it felt like that. The way the way he was justtalking about the whole recorder departure from Renaud Man, and what and did you do you rememberabout the whole tattoo bed that was going on with Ricardo and apparently Iwas going to get a tattoo if the car to get a podium with Rena and obviously hedid right, and so I remember right to survival. Solike showed a lot about this, and obviously he didn't do any tattoo thatguy I don't know what happened to him, did hedid he had fired or something? Where is he now yeah? I think I think heprobably got mixed up in some run of French politics and got shown the bootwith the change in teams and probly his emotional side also to cover. I don'tknow what went behind yeah. I think I think he got shown the booth yeah and it it doesn't make sense to mebecause Rena wasn't doing so good ever...

...since I joined you know, but justrecently they had made some progress and it felt, like you know, sill wasprobably making some progress with the team and then right when they were re,branding yeah he's off the team. There's definitely something going onthere, but it like what lp now in yeah, let's see, let's see whathappened with them, but there's there's more controversy in and around Efenanyways right, like as we've also spoken in our first race, Basela FIA.There's there's just some shady stuff happening there. I don't know if theycame back and actually made any stricter laws around race limits. Butthere was this very funny name where there is a acute comic cartoon. SayingMax is going to win this face and then and then there's got to two huge builtguys once more camelton one's mark fi a eating, you d come mack down and that'sexactly what happened in the first place. Yeah, I don't get it these guys. Look like abunch of amateurs, I don't understand what are these guys doing? It's asimple thing, you know create a rule before the raise stick to the rule,apply the rule as respective of who the driver is and let the race end in peace.I don't understand what games of I is trying to play. It spoils the sport. Itadds nothing to. It is FIA owned by more. For me, I don't know. Maybe it is. I mean I'mjust I'm just trying to give the benefit of dot to I I thes merceries,like even pay their selves, probably two tones. I do you know that toto also owns a partof Aston Martin racing, okay, so that okay, so the Aston Martin, is nevergoing to be at MERCIS, okay. So what else? Let's? Let's let's now Al, Ithink we can just predict to is going to win that championship. If we just goby this logic, yeah, it's crazy. Everyone is filledwith such oddities. I mean that is such a clear conflict of interest. He shouldnever be allowed to own stake in a competitor, while he is the teamprinciple of one team and owns. You know a third of the Marcites, a frontteam, so cash is king, yea and he says and drive to Seraya cashes king forsure, and he says it drive to Sari to ride like I don't think he plans toquit the port anyways I mean he's, got wested into interest so much into thesport. Now that he'll just probably become one of those advisers orsomewhere offscreen, but he's never leaving the product. Is that, like athread, it seems like a thread? I mean no comments, but a been speaking of I know. I nottouched on this right like who decided to have a three week gap and all thatand something that that I'm that we miss to bring up then was besides thetwenty three races in the crazy amount of scraming.That's going to happen this year. We are also going to see sprint races. Ohyeah, that's right! That's that's something new that these guys aretrying. I think, as a part of again appealing to more people making everyday a little bit more interesting, because traditionally the Friday is notas fun as you know, Saturday and Sunday in eares weekend, because you just havepractice sessions on Friday. So a lot of casual fans are not that interestedin those races that also drives down the ticket sales a bit for raceweekends. I mean right now there that not ticket sales, but you know so Ithink this is a good time for them to test this out, but they are essentiallytrying to introduce print races so how...

...to work out. As I think Friday, therewill be a qualification session or based on that qualification session.The grade will have a sprint trace on on Saturday. It Yeah and sprint races, essentially a shorterrace, where you wouldn't have a pitch, stop it's a sprint race, and so I think I think the details areuncleared. They haven't like made an official announcement of ahead but yeah,and that too is a bit shady right because they don't know they haven'tcome out and said what prize money. I mean everyone's rooting for that pricemany a day and to day, and then they don't know how points and price moneyand championship tables and all those things at that reward you for the I aregoing to work and how they're that's going to fit in with the main fond rage.I think I heard that if I is going to give out some money to all teams forrepairs, because this is basically an additionnal burden on all teams rightyeah, if, like they crashed a car or something during the race, that's gotto cost them a lot of money. So I think fi is kind of giving some kind of aninsurance for these teams that if any crashes occur or something they'll payup to a certain amount, so gin to make it a little bit easier for them sure. But for me I mean it's still inthat realm of Fi a playing shady cause. I mean I change a power unit for asprint race. Can I keep it for the main race, because now I have a new power inEr. I really hope. If I is crystal clear about the rules related to this,I guess we lot find out if mercy ties is winning up. But that's that's what Oh yeah, let's see I let's hope I mean I am hoping that thiswould. This would be fun, but I'm kind of a little skepticalabout it. Let's see out, I would all the for folks.
