Grip Strip Podcast Episode 144 – Great George and More

Phil and Josh return for E144 of the GSP to discuss George Russell’s first career Formula 1 victory at the Sao Paulo/Brazilian Grand Prix.  The guys get into the feature and sprint races along with the qualifying, which saw Kevin Magnussen qualify on pole for Haas F1. 

Controversy reigned with current double world champion Max Verstappen getting into it with Sir Lewis Hamilton yet again along with ignoring a team directive to move over for teammate Sergio Perez in his battle for 2nd in the driver’s championship.

Hamilton finished second to provide Mercedes their first 1-2 of the 2022 season with Carlos Sainz finishing third after taking an engine penalty.  Sainz teammate Charles Leclerc and Perez are tied with one race to go while Ferrari holds a 19 point lead over Mercedes heading to Abu Dhabi.  Other aggressive issues took place with the Alpine teammates while Nico Hulkenberg is returning to drive for Haas in 2023.

Phil and Josh then got into a discussion about who they would add to the Top 50 drivers in NASCAR history with the 75th year celebration starting in 2023.  Some interesting choices were covered by both before Phil got into the GSP Roundup reviewing NHRA’s finale at Pomona, WEC at Bahrain, WSBK in Indonesia last week and Phillip Island this week, WRC Rally Japan and a preview of the F2 finale at Abu Dhabi.  

The NFL discussion gets into Josh and Phil’s actual teams and fantasy teams before they previewed and made picks for the Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix along with giving their thoughts at the end of Sebastian Vettel’s legendary career.  Josh does his Sim Segment before the Show Close.
