||Thursday, April 20th 2017, 15:17 GMT
Sebastian Vettel's victory in the Formula 1 Bahrain Grand Prix and Fernando Alonso's Indianapolis 500 assault are the main talking points in the latest Autosport Podcast.
Autosport Editor-in-Chief Edd Straw is joined by Adam Cooper and Scott Mitchell to look at how Vettel won in Bahrain, and more importantly how Mercedes managed to fail to turn a front-row lockout into a victory.
The improved performance of Red Bull is also a key talking point, while the clash between Lance Stroll and Carlos Sainz Jr and Pascal Wehrlein's return also provoke debate.
While Fernando Alonso's Bahrain GP doesn't warrant much discussion, good as his drive was, his and McLaren's plans for May do.
Discussion centres on Alonso's chances of claiming a rookie victory, as well as why the deal came together.
Autosport newcomer Alex Kalinauckas also joins in to discuss Charles Leclerc's great start to the renamed Formula 2 Championship, and the validity of high-degradation tyres in F1's main feeder series.
