After yet another thrilling grand prix, the third in a row if you believe Mat Coch, the Pitpass crew is back to make sense of it all.
Max Noble joins Coch in the studio as Chris Balfe takes a week off, the duo sharing their thoughts and opinions on everything from the mud-slinging happening at Ferrari to the warm fuzzy feeling Noble gets while reading headlines about Max Verstappen.
The Spanish Grand Prix was a sensation for the young Dutchman, and while he receives his fair share of praise the attentions of both Noble and Coch were elsewhere. According to Noble the Barcelona encounter was proof that the old Kimi Raikkonen had returned, while the Finn's performance would have left Coch having a stern talking to the man who finished second best.
Proving he'd be a harsh task master, Coch then sets his sights on Ricciardo, for the second time in as many shows, suggesting the Australian's time at Red Bull has come to an end. The arrival and immediate success of Verstappen is Ricciardo's death knell, he reasons and while understanding his perspective, Noble plants himself firmly on the fence.
And it's from that vantage point he draws his conclusions over the first lap incident between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. But while he isn't willing to apportion blame, Noble does admit he'd be giving both drivers a stern talking to, going so far as to threaten them both with the sack if they don't lift their games. Predictably, Coch has a different view and lays the blame entirely on one of the two Mercedes men in a passionate rant that ultimately ends up with him questioning the driving standards in Formula One.
There's a half-baked conspiracy theory and some words of encouragement for Romain Grosjean before Coch and Noble just about come to blows over their opinion of the Monaco Grand Prix.
