On episode three of Aramco F1 Focus, host Tim Silvey is once again joined by Sean ‘Virtual Statman’ Kelly and our resident racing driver Alex Brundle.

After Max Verstappen’s win from ninth on the grid in Miami, Sean takes a statistical look at wins from low grid slots – and why winning from ninth hasn’t happened for so long. He also poses the question as to whether Miami can lay claim to being a ‘perfect’ race, given there were no yellow or red flags, safety cars, or other interruptions for the first time in history.

After that, following accusations from some quarters than F1’s hard tyres have made races boring, Alex delivers his ‘tyre manifesto’ for spicing up the action. And if that wasn’t enough, he then dives into the debate on DRS and how he – as a racing driver – would shape the rules regarding the overtaking aid if he were given carte blanche.

And finally, we wrap up the show with our Aramco Focus in which we hear from F2 and F3 technical director Didier Perrin about how the championships have embraced Aramco’s newly-introduced sustainable fuels.
