NewsDesk Unplugged | AusGP Review Super Sainz & Other Stories

In this edition of NewsDesk Unplugged, GRANDPRIX247 editorial duo Paul Velasco and Jad Mallak discuss the 2024 Australian Grand Prix, dissecting the major talking points from the race won be Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz.

Carlos Sainz’s incredible victory must have Ferrari scratching their heads. Is letting him go the right thing? What now for Sainz?

Of course, Max Verstappen breaking his brakes ended a ten-race winning streak for him and Red Bull. Last time they were interrupted by their former driver. Could Sainz go back to Red Bull?

Other matters analysed include a miserable weekend for Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton’s early DNF; teammate George Russell’s last lap prang with Fernando Alonso, and the penalty dished out to the Aston Martin driver for that spat.

Williams team boss James Vowles gets a tongue-lashing for only fielding one-car to a two-car race and questioning if this team deserves to be among the elite. But also some nice words for Yuki Tsunoda’s one man show at VCARB.

Also Sauber’s sh!tsh0w had to be mentioned as they too make folly of F1 pretending to be the pinnacle of the sport. And other interesting observations from a stellar weekend at Albert Park for Formula 1, Ferrari and, most of all, Smooth Operator aka Super Carlos Sainz.
