  Welcome back Midfielders! Our melons are still mashed from a magnificent Miami Grand Prix. McLaren, Mclaren, McLaren! A first win for our papaya boi, and man is the orange fruit sweet. Join us as we break down all the highlights from the first U.S. race of the season!

7:35 - Red cars go fast. Red and blue cars? Not so much. Poor communication from the garage, Chuck's a bit slippy, Carlos is cryin'. 2023 called, and they want they're 'rrari's  back. An unimpressive showing for a couple of guys who still take 3-5, but our socks have sympathy for our Tifosi brethren.

17:55 - The Silver Arrows are pointed downwards! Lewis dukes it out with the Kirkland Brand midfield all weekend long, and George makes very little noise as both drivers struggle to make the points. Two years of tinkering, can Toto turn-tables, to try the teams in the latter half of the season? Time will tell.

23:15 - Speaking of telling time, it's time to say something nice! Patrick does some big maths and we get some serious averages. Possibly our poster team for the Midfield? We do share colors and a love for mediocrity. We spend far less on our production, thankfully.

28:05 - Somebody knows how to do a Miami livery right! VCARB lookin' as sharp as Don Johnson. The VICECARB was on fire this weekend as Danny handles the sprint, and Yuki grabs big points in the grand prix. Is it the strat? Upgrades working well? That groovy paint job? Whatever it was, it worked this weekend, and we hope it continues. The Kirkland Brand's on watch.

33:30 - The Doctah and the Bad Boys! Could be our favorite team on the grid so far this year. While the Hulk smashes his way through the Kirkland Brand midfield yet again, PMag collects penalty points like Sonic collects gold rings. We break down Kevin's 65 penalty seconds for the weekend, and Dan offers a solution to the FIA regarding the penalty-barrage strategy of Haas.

43:40 - The segue machine is all warmed up, and so are the Alpines. With a few upgrades, a few less kilos, and a pair of drivers with something to prove, the Frenchies showed up this weekend. Arguably some of the finest driving through the chicanes (or full lap whatever) we've seen all season. Patrick and Dan make some decisions as to who's in, and who's out of discussion contention after Miami.

Still your P10 challenge leaders, despite Yuki doing better than we expected. Bask in the glory with us for yet another week. Thanks again for listening, have a great week, and be sure to follow us on socials! Links below!
