The Bloke and A Bird Show Episode 26

The big story coming out of Spa this year - tires.  We thought we were done talking about them, but between Williams' bizarre pitt lane error that resulted in Valteri Bottas driving on a mis-matched set of tires to Sebastian Vettel's post race comments, we can't ignore the tires this race.

Was Ferrari's tire strategy in Spa too aggressive, or was it something else?  Could the drivers' failure to obey the track limits be the issue?

The other big story - Lotus.  Romain Grosjean had a fantastic race, earning the team their best podium in a long time.  We think that the team has sorted out it's legal issues with Charles Pic, but everybody's been quiet on the matter, and it's looking more like Renault will be buying the team - and making things a lot more complicated in the process.
