Welcome back Midfielders! Boy have we got a treat for you! Dan's reached into his magical bag of tricks and pulled out another amazing guest! This week we've got Adam from F1FantasyHQ.com. He gives us his story, his insights, and all the tips to bet big and beat our buddies, each and every week on the fantasy grid.

0:00 - Intros/ What's a Midfield? What's our Midfield? Who's in, who's out? A quick recap of what in the heck we're talking about. Dan reveals his recent, revolutionary, research resource! (Hint - we're not real clever) We begin the discussion on the track and weekend layout for Shanghai.

6:40 - A quick history of the Chinese circuit and we make our BOLDIES for the weekend! Danny Ric on a podium?! Has someone lost their mind?! No. nobody's that crazy, but we like his chances. As usual Patty's all in on red. Will rain play a factor in this weekend's festivities? So much to consider on this relatively untested track.

10:51 - We bring in Adam! He takes us back to 2007 and his F1 origin story, a great tale of a friendship rivalry, turning into a lifelong love of the sport. Thank goodness for that, because he's built www.f1fantasyhq.com! To help plebes like Patrick truly understand the game of fantasy F1. Barely two years old, this website has exploded in popularity and is currently one of the best tools one can find for long term strategy in F1 fantasy.

17:40 - What is F1 Fantasy? How does it even work? Can Patrick still take Marshawn Lynch in the 3rd round? Adam tells us two of the biggest rookie mistakes to avoid, and makes a solid recommendation for team building. He tells us about Super Chips, and the differing strategies on using them throughout the season.

23:22 - We talk Drive to Survive. Love it or hate it, it's here to stay, and Adam has some great insights as to the upsides and downsides of our beloved series. Adam makes a book recommendation; "The Formula" by Joshua Robinson and Jonathan Clegg. A must-read for anyone interested in the sport of F1, or sports broadcasting, or history, or all of it rolled into one!

38:28 - Still struggling to get it together, KICKSAUBER's up to take their lumps again. Is a sprint race their saving grace this weekend? Any chance to stay OUT of the garage can only improve their chances. We look forward to this year's silly season, and Adam breaks down "mean lap time" and what it means for Fantasy rosters.

44:35 - The Doctah! Put some respect on that name. We talk Haas and how all things are go for the Hulkster and K Mag. We get Adam's input on the greatest turn-around factor for one of our favorite midfield teams.

51:00 - Adam tells us about his trip to the first ever F1 Arcade! Dinner, drinks and simulators. Throw in a Belgian Spa and it sounds like the best date night ever. We say goodbye to our new bestest friend and try to squeeze a few more insider fantasy tips from him before he leaves.

58:10 - Whew! We wrap things up as Patricks tries to wrap his head around all this information.  Be sure follow Adam and the F1Fantasy HQ and listen to his podcast The Fantasy Formula to keep your team race-ready! (Links below!)
