  WwWelcome back Midfielders! What a wet 'n wild-watery-wacetwack ok that's enough. Soggy conditions kept the questions coming all weekend in Quebec. What else did the Gilles Villeneuve Montreal Grand Prix have in store for us? Let's dive in!

0:00 - Intros/ What did we learn? The rainy conditions and new surface created a bajillion learning opportunities, did the boys pick up on any? Maybe. Probably learned more than Ferrari. The boys start the breakdown from the top-down, after kickin' the red cars while they're down.

6:58 - McLaren. One word. Juicy. Yet another hotshot weekend for our soccer-dad team principal Zak Brown. 2 and 5? Grab another ice-cold one from the cooler, roll the dog on the grill a few more times, kick-back and enjoy the good times in the McLaren backyard bbq. Just be sure to kiss the cook.

10:00 - The Silver Arrows are BACK baby! Mom and Dad went to the cabin for the weekend letting these two English drivers run wild through Canada. While we think 3rd is a much bigger W than George wants to admit, we're not hopeful that this success continues. Someone's called the fuzz, this party's about to be broken up. Pout harder George you're about to be grounded to 6th in a hurry.

18:05 - Aston Martin, our color-sake team. Solid, quiet weekend from our forest-green favorites. We applaud Fernando and say some nice things about the hometown hero. We make a leap to a possible change-up in talkables, is the Mexican Midfielder in? You decide! Head over to our threads page to weigh in! He's been driving real kirkland like, despite having a better car than everyone else. Dan gets riled.

25:05 - On to VCARB and Dan still hasn't cooled off much. Dig into Danny Ric! Dig! Unfortunate race for Yuki, but we are still loving what we're seeing from these guys. Solid quali's by both drivers and a late-race spin to dump Yuki into 14th. We love when teammates get the go-ahead to do battle on track.

30:36 - Haas. Did a fantastic job of keeping things fun this weekend on the wet tire. Patty was excited, he does some quick maths, and is loving the PMag early-race strategy. Couldn't catch the lucky safety car they needed to sandbag their way into some points, but we loved watching our leather jacket-clad bad boys, crushing their way up the field.

34:55 - For a team that scored points, Dan's ire continues. Quick semi lap for Mr. Doohan at the end of FP1, and a race finishing with both cars in the points? WHAT could one possibly get upset about?! Este and Dan are fixin' to tell ya, and not just a little bit. Ocon gets his own Squishy Violin! Dan's now steaming.

41:20 - Dan's in Patrick's out. There's only one of these Williams drivers ever deserving of our attention, and Patrick thinks he's had enough. After taking some of the heat off Dan's shoulders, we decide to shove the whole team into the Drawer of Unmentionables.

We wrap-up with some winners and losers. Dan leaves us with a lil' cliffhanger and few newsy-tidbits, and another shout-out from Patrick, in yet another attempt at alienating listeners. Thanks again for hopping off the pit wall with us, and be sure to follow us on socials!
