The second race of the 2020 season may not have been spectacular as the first, but there's still plenty to discuss.
Before getting into the specific talking points from the Grand Prix, Finley and Michelle take a moment to admire the dominance and brilliance of Lewis Hamilton. He may not have been at his best last week, but when he is, it's hard to imagine Valtteri Bottas being able to beat him.
The Finn is the only man in a car capable of challenging the Brit, and that's largely due to the complete mess at Ferrari. Things went from bad to worse one corner into the second race as Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel collided and both retired.
The pair take a look at the incident, decide who was at fault and discuss how Ferrari handled the situation. They undoubtedly favour Leclerc, but at this point, does Vettel even care?
The fight at the front may not have great, but the midfield battle more than made up for it. Tribute is paid to the stand-out drivers of the race, Lando Norris and Sergio Perez, before the question arises - can Ferrari even fight this lot?
There's yet another race next weekend in Hungary, and the episode is wrapped up with a look ahead to it, as well as look back at the season so far. With this new look structure, featuring back to back races at the same track and social distancing aplenty, has it been a successful return for the sport?
