This this final inspection. Steve socking presented by the legendary Great Lakes dragged away in union grove driven by Milwaukee area now auto care association. 1057 F. The final selection show right Q by legendary grit extra weight in the union grove Wisconsin known reference it to walk here in Napa auto care centers. Joining us and agree mid West Bank line from NBC sports it's David Hobbs Formula One analysts welcomed news show David. Good yeah. It is a new season and some changes. And the U of course were in Spain for pre season testing and and I guess the question everybody is going to be asking can anybody beat receive tees. Well based on the testing eleven. It would appear that there are a camp. But. You know testing testing and racing racing madam. Which is why right and then he had both look very very sides the Red Bull. Which not cause sauces everybody thought it would be well it looks good quickest. Aspect especially in the hands of young much to step in. And them. So I think that there this year will be generally ball compresses the machine the last cup is throughout ascension to handle things like good and it also. Did a lot of miles or let it did not get as many not machetes. And it's a suitable or CDs I thought was. The new driver the new kid on the block for them no military ball tossing you know in Provo. Mercedes powered Williams he was a very quick and pre season testing in his. There's somebody you can give O Lewis a run for the money. Well I think he can. I think he's I think about to protest is probably quicker than NATO most. You know Ross does a great guy and I got. The jump to two times minimums. In my opinion a little bit looking to win last year actually. She just did did not have the place all Hamilton. And that's why I think he quit the sport. You know you wanna jump ship and he just knows it's not policy that it would not champ so he gave Ellis had which is great. Great enemy already have any money and actually more money. So I I think sought and about about just will be ready to unload it around money. Now so probably every inch innocent little lovely double. Well she'll outcomes and we'll react to it actually doesn't that blow at all. Let us say battle does expect to Bledel on a consistent basis and she'll try and but he took. Wonder the other things those interest in that was the force India launch where they're coming out with a pink car they were new sponsor B to BWT. I guess that's the first pick delivery we've seen in a car right think. Damon Hill. Drove one that was in the last iteration of our problem. Back in early ninety's I think at some pain kind of but it's a quite sterling character was it painted pink contesting. No it was not paid and contesting unseated Sadiq all he did force India last year it has now gotten to in the red nosed. A treat to do that tongue in cheek. Now you see that. I also read it should have been alarming the bus drivers that are well I think. It's just him making vary. Complicated. So who's the victim. Battled so policy India again looked pretty strong dislike it last year that it reliable. And also be there right in the middle of the field seeing so definitely packed up. It Renault were right. Whereas such you know left a place this year. Stretching and at all but I era on the place as early that the Americans in the cost teams very quick. I'm Kevin Magnuson strong that they were. And so you know that really actually open up middle. They donate to trot out which you know really an option it's bombs in the trap on the which is an absolute it is Josh. Bola tremendous magnitude but Honda. I am. And the other on the south really really shackled now because they have not huge rah and but all the engine outside she made big strides over the winter and in troops engines and lost. A contractual continue good to style and runs the cost. Lisa you know he couldn't. There's no way you can. Quote psychic current. Probably in the Schaub. Because apparently the engine is completely to them in shape it would it while it just shows how much efforts been put into the end of the wind. That's interest in again getting back to the force India with a pink helmets. There's interest Ian vertical written about. Out were Ross Brian wanted to. Put the numbers and the tail fins which he's done favor with of Anna I'm not much either. But it would be nice at least get some. For the fans see who's who because it sometimes hard to tell with the with the helmets going by the helmets who was who ended discos back against two Bernie Ecclestone one in. You know all the cars uniform on the Eric I remembered BA are both fifteen years ago they wanted one. It's the on different cars are there different cigarettes sponsors reckon they've while you're still have tobacco sponsorship and he will in the Holler at me and it. Stupid looking car with. What was it. Lucky strike a one sided and the other cigarette on the other side is. But what what what's your opinion that with that what the number I mean and tendency offense. Well number it has always been a bugaboo to me you know. Useful. Should they should mandate bigot numbers on the couch and spectators but. Spot ship on Portuguese rule soul. And they have actually it salute you know the wishes of sponsoring companies and sort of numbers are not very big. And yes they could have put them on those tales in which up pretty ugly shot. Although the Mercedes grand pretty damn successfully and in eight HS without without attention to me in my. So I know that shoddy watching on as it should all on a wrong. Accounts and being around all. For Australia that and they may not see a year but I two moved. Yeah. Don't think similar purpose we also got a funny little treatment. On the very end of the shot into redirect and onto it. Willing to assess yet a big difference initiate an option is Calgary yeah wings allow love. Into. Certainly can't decent close. Street did Shelton. The hired. You the yeah I think. And take. Front winds and sheets. Shows. And Randall mentioned so complexes so complicate. Will win today engines so drains. Just suggestion in the ready wincing and you knock policy and in each. Vote got a bit so. Wonder about it aerodynamics ish it's because million dollars and Aaron dwindle. Exactly and that's other key opener jobs become monopolies sad as I insist it. Getting into the American team the Haas team Mo with the new addition Kevin Magnuson comes over from where no. And a accorsi they'd be really hit the ground running and last year and then kind of slowed down but still I mean is much more successful season and now. Many thought in the paddock for possible what can weeks heard from them this year. Well I think you can expect more assigned won't have all the seat got a lot of data you don't remember last year. Everywhere I went first on the been. Now they have rolling roads and they have data to compute like state cheering us couldn't and then about every little bump him months out of but I had no previous dates the dialogue now they've got date every. All they have a new job they have another New Zealand's register our engine which obviously changed and pretty quick. And reliable. And so the in pretty good shape. I think he'll find its own Magnuson will be significantly possible beauty. On May be a bit too well amen girlish. And down it just well enough Grumman gosh almost complaining about the breaks. Appetites. On the on if you remember every race roster on Russia. Has been seven Magnum at. On top like that in all the bricks seem fine. I think they'll be right in the mid pack the and it didn't get a B digital is a aside amid tight close up. But the end of the tests he has about sixteen that rural within just two it's intense and so so that. Actually the midfield is going to be very intense to get that last point it's a tenth spot. It's going to be very very contest will be itching. Them are fully expects normal points Masha because last seat there remember Rehman Gresham getting coached Gordon course coral cute yeah. Well fully expects both jobs school points this year. Well based Grossman isn't did in the first two races such a Croatian that we can look at that but term yet they look good honesty most of it. Retirement David Hobbs for a one analyst with MBC's sports. One final question here is Williams with Lance strolls been giving a lot of criticism. He have a couple crashes but this is the young kid and spree and a lot of money. But I Yom. I'm thinking and it's keeping the Williams team viable and that Wade's good meat we need the tee we can't lose any more teams and Formula One. What's your opinion on the the young Canadian. Well I don't know a lot about him other than that he has won every championship he's got until it's got to cut here as well. And he won the GP the Bundy. All military championship in Europe Austria. Easy innings at some of Max amount relations. So you got a lot of confidence she's obviously very clicked. He did come unglued a couple of times in the first test will be full week. Mystic hold a secret. Random but I fully expect him to be pretty compatible and pretty capacity. It crutches yesterday to mass. Policy one hopes he has a but the Williams team also has got amazing this year. They've lost shipments. But they've gangs patty. From the space. Unpopular is tremendous. And it you certain about what she got money stroll bring some light thirty million bucks. They take and put up budget dues I expect that would in some contests it was in very good. Well that is certainly good I mean mailing a set you know I think a lot of criticism is is people that to salt lakes into cue with. With money Bynum is Wayne Formula One but forgy it's been that way for many years now. Well you know money helps you know untoward EPA you look at Jerry Madonna on. Chad Jared and I don't to have all of Sprint Cup I'm basically. I'm not saying he bought his way and but he. And Iran on the borderline mention not just only one shot. Pretty little home Asian. It certainly is true and first threesome blue years next week ago where work and we to an end. It's coming up it'll be on NBC SN. I think we don't yes virtual mixer and knives. Like yeah eleven.
