The panel give the listeners a debrief before discussing the implications for Red Bull as well as the current rumours of key figures, such as Max Verstappen and Adrian Newey potentially leaving the team.

The trio talk about the key takeaways from practice and qualifying, discussing Alpine's performance as well as those who got into Q3, including Nico Hulkenberg.

The panel then share their National Anthem Ratings before going through the race. They discuss the performance of Red Bull and Perez's climb through the field as well as Ferrari. Carlos Sainz finished on the podium and was a man on a mission in Bahrain whilst his teammate suffered several problems. The panel talk about Sainz's performance and what it means for the season before chatting about Lance Stroll, who was involved in the opening lap incident.
