    Like the cherry blossoms of Suzuka, this season's in full bloom! We break down the 2024 Japanese Grand Prix and all the excitement in turn one, and beyond! Are Williams at their critical limit? Does the Doctor have all the cures? Does Patrick love red cars?! The answers to all these, plus a new twist on a favorite segment, all in this weeks episode! Welcome to the Midfield!

0:00 - Intro's/ we're old farts! We can't hang, and we're proud of it. Suzuka's too late, and we'll just catch it on the replay.

3:05 - Bottom to the top this week, starting with our carp/sucker fish of the midfield. Sauber. They've got their own sheet, but it's not a good one...

5:45 - French frying when they're supposed to be pizza-ing, it's Williams. The title track folks, how much longer can we hear this sad song keep playing? Our heart breaks for our preseason favorites, but we got a business to run here. We make a cut from the midfield and make a mid-season, conversation delegation!

22:00 - Who's that hiding in the hedges? Ho-boy it's Haas! These guys might not be the shiniest toy in the box, but they sure are fun to play with. K-Mag and the Hulk are teamed up with The Doctor and are takin' names. Surprises abound!

26:20 - VCARB hits the block. Well, Danny does anyways. With a sharp looking race from Yuki, and a close up of the wall for Daniel, it's looking like there's a CLEAR team leader in the RB garage. 7/8's of a Logan Sargeant on the confidence scale is not a good look.

32:35 - Roll out the red carpet for our newest guest star as we get into our favorite segment. 4 years old and he's already better on the mic than Patrick! We say some nice things about Lance, and we break down why the top driver of this team is such a sly ol' dawg. Call it greasy, call it smart, whatever it is, we love it.

40:10 - Like Swiper, Patrick keeps stealing the segues! If he keeps it up it's going to disrupt the time-flow, causing a meltdown of the core! First set of Dream Seats picked out in Suzuka, as we gush about turn one, as long as there's a car with downforce like McLaren. We touch on Yuki's great home race, probably more than the actual broadcast! Or ANY of the other last lap battles...

51:54 - Lewis is being un-Lewis. Dan's got some theories, either way a 7-9 split can't be an ideal finish for the Mercs. Somethin's fishy when Lewis offers up a driver swap, and we've got all the best minds here at the Midfield digging into this with everything we've got. Bear with us. Even Dan gets things wrong sometimes.

61:50 - HOW. WET. ARE. YOUR. BOOTS?! These red cars man, whew! They go fast! They've got the car, the drivers, and somehow seemed to have shaken the bad juju of years past. Yet another nearly-flawless victory over the rest of the midfield for the horses. If Squishy races, he's on the podium this year. Get on board, dye your dog's fur red, get a Tifosi tattoo, it's bandwagon time!

Another great time talkin' another great race! Thanks for listening and be sure to follow us on socials! See you next week.
