This week’s show welcomes back the Massive Mammal, that’s right, the Faaaattttt Hiiipppooo himself returns with all his Teutonic grace. Sadly, his internet burns down right at the beginning of the show, but don’t worry that won’t stop the other panelists from mocking him when he can’t defend himself (it’s safer that way).
He is joined by Anil “Nutella” Parmar spreading the love of A level physics and chafing under the yoke of being the youngest panel member yet again, as he is relegated to the role of student, regardless of whether or not he actually is one, on which point opinions differ. Chief Khan-trarian AJ throws himself into the fray for the 3rd straight week but don’t worry we’ve edited out most of the boring stuff out for you.
Mattpt55 suffers an invisible contaminant on his internet that sees him mysteriously drop out halfway through a discussion but fortunately he was able to officially welcome Host-in-Chief and the ever sartorially consistent Spanners to the Over-the-Hill gang. Together they discuss the inverse square law of memory loss and child-rearing.
Mildly Interested F1 Fan, Daryl, makes a reappearance that is sadly cut short as he crosses entirely the boundaries of sanity and good taste before Spanners gives him the heave-ho.
The panel this week embarks on an excruciatingly thorough forensic analysis of the fateful Mercedes pit stop. Fans of minutiae and timelines put down your copies of JFK long enough to have your mind thoroughly blown by what some folk get up to with their total lack of a home life.
The follow through is a thorough look at who exactly should be held responsible for the utter disaster that befell Mercedes in front of their Chairman, Dieter Zetsche, whilst trying to show off their bright and shiny newly-contracted superstar driver. Inconsistent stewarding rises to the top as well, as the panel explore new and different ways to get back to racing and away from the Naughty Step.
Many suggestions are made, some with actual merit and Spanners sticks up for young Max who comes a cropper with the rest of the panel for being unable to keep a secret. Anil gives a brief rundown of the Formula E brouhaha from last weekend and Mattpt55 opines that Formula E is boring in German. Try Italian next time Trumpets, even renewing your passport sounds exciting in Italian.
Spanners introduces a regulation change to this weeks quiz that results in utter chaos at the first corner and in the resultant mess AJ changes his answer without penalty after the elapsed time. time for Professional Stewards say I. In any event, some of the panel as usual get the right answer for the wrong reasons whilst the rest figure it out after it is too late.
This week’s Things explores the *real* reasons for Hamilton’s horrible pit stop and venture far afield in search of their answer, exploring both general relativity and Quantum theory in an attempt to understand what happened, whilst ignoring entirely a balky green light that was the likely actual cause. Oh well, win some lose Monaco, as they say…
Thanks again to the Jury for all the brilliant points they made that we once again completely ignored in favour of making juvenile jokes at Spanner’s expense. We promise we’ll do better next week… Really
