The Bloke and A Bird Show Episode 174

A show two weeks in a row - we’re sure you’re just as shocked as we are….

So remember how we were told by Red Bull that they had no plans to replace Pierre Gasly… Yeah, so much for that, as he’s be sent down to Toro Rosso with Alexander Albon moving up to Red Bull to replace him.

Cyril Abiteboul would rather the tracks were redesigned instead of the technical rules in order to get better racing.

Ferrari is still moving ahead with their 2019 car despite the fact that it doesn’t have a chance of winning either title, but they do acknowledge that they should have looked to have more downforce this year.

McLaren on the other hand is already working on their 2020 car and it’s had a positive impact on their 2019 efforts.

Did Red Bull reach out to Fernando Alonso to offer him a drive alongside Max Verstappen for the rest of the year? Or did Fernando Alonso reach out to Red Bull to advertise his availability for 2020?

Zak Brown does say that Fernando hasn’t expressed interest in joining McLaren’s 2020 IndyCar attempt.

Alexander Rossi and James Hinchcliffe are headed to Bathurst this fall.

And once again there was a big crash at this past weekend’s race at Pocono.
