3 days x pre-season testing + 3 days x 2021 Bahrain Grand Prix = several quirky moments of the 2021 Formula 1 season already; Sergio Perez’s restart on the formation lap being one of many. While recording this episode, we realised how important a role Windows & Bill Gates have played in our lives by teaching us the ever-crucial ‘restart’ action!
