Mercedes' courtship of Max Verstappen stepped up a notch recently, with Toto Wolff making more admiring comments about him, but could that move really be on for the future, or is the Silver Arrows chief just trying to stir the pot and inflict more uncertainty on an already fractious Red Bull squad? That's one of the topics debated by Edd Straw, Scott-Mitchell-Malm and Ben Anderson on this episode. They also look in more depth at Mercedes troubled start to the season, after tech chief James Allison revealed a little more about their issues, before moving down the grid to talk about Haas, with Scott having recently caught up with the team's charismatic former boss Guenther Steiner.
