  Welcome back Midfielders! Got another action packed weekend to... well, unpack! Dan and Patrick get into all things Chinese Shanghai Grand Prix. Let's waste no time and get right into it!

0:00 - Intros/ A quick recap of who's in and who's out of OUR midfield. Do the Frenchies have what it takes to break into the discuss-able category? Patrick says not yet. Leave 'em in the drawer, we'll check ya later. We share our Midfield Moments of the Weekend.

8:45 - Busting our way right up to "Wait 'n See" Williams. (Told ya we're wastin' no time!) We argue aesthetics, because let's be honest, there's not been much else to be talk about when it comes to the boys in blue. Dan explains "knife's edge", and what it means to F1 drivers.

14:30 - Haas. Boom. You love it, we love it, everybody loves it. I mean it would be neat to get 2 cars to finish in the point(s) but the Hulkster can keep it clean. Loving the P10 Challenge victory for our boy Nico. Can The Doctah get KMag to not drive so poorly? Can we squeeze just one more cool nickname out of this team? Only time will tell.

17:35 - VCARB. No, RB. No. VCARB. Whatever, these guys spent more time off the track than on it seems this weekend. Who doesn't love being kicked while they're down? Doesn't matter, the dog pile's on Danny Ric! 

24:00 - The sly old fox and the young pup. It's our favorite segment. Back-handed or otherwise, we say some nice things. Patty get's his 90's Bulls reference in. And we ponder fernando's formation lap prowess/pranks.

29:00 - The Silver Arrows. Question marks all over the place with this team. Can they get from consistent to dominant? Is Lewis' heart "in it" as much as his mouth? Will they get it together before it's too late to compete with either of the top two teams? Tinker tinker tinker, doesn't seem to be the answer-early for the Mercs.

33:10 - P2 for our proud papaya papas! Nobody saw such an excellent race coming from the young Brit. What a nice surprise to have orange over red with the top team on the podium. We've got our hopes up on McLaren for the remainder of the season. Did Ferrari drop the ball on the strategy this weekend? Whatever the issue, an equally surprisingly poor weekend for our red bois. Patrick clearly doesn't pay attention to tires..

44:45 - Dan bends some ears over the FIA. He's a dork, but he makes valid points and raises good questions about some pretty hefty/unbalanced punishments from the FIA, so we love him for it. Just give us a lil' consistency. Just a lil'. Please, for Valtteri's sake.

54:05 - Moped rides and zen closings. Thanks for listening Midfielders! Be sure to like and subscribe, and follow us on socials! See you next week.
