Episode 40 – VW destroys Pikes Peak, Mazda finally has CarPlay, and it’s Elon’s birthday!

This week James and Mal are joined by Tim Robson, who gives us a rundown on what’s happening in the motorsport world, namely F1 being faced with its first ever triple header (27:40), the possibility for Daniel Ricciardo to become our highest paid sportsperson (29:10), and Fernando Alonso’s interest to move to America to drive for a British team founded by a New Zealander (32:05).

But first, as always, we start off with Muskwatch (1:00), where we wish our fearless leader Elon a happy birthday, have some questions about his “Mad Max” overtaking mode currently in testing, and give an update on Model 3 production.

In other news, women can finally drive in Saudi Arabia, and to celebrate, Aseel Al-Hamad drove a 2012 Renault Formula One car around the French Grand Prix circuit (5:25). VW has destroyed Pikes Peak with the IDR time of 7:57.148 (7:05), and Mazda has finally caved and will offer – as an option – Apple CarPlay and Android Auto across its entire lineup from later this year (11:30).

VW and Ford have announced they will build trucks and vans together going forward (15:30), manufacturers are losing billions building EVs and autonomous cars that nobody actually wants (18:40), we attended a sneak preview of Aston’s new DBS Superleggera (22:10), and we look back to some of history’s “Design Damsels” (24:10).
