After 1,055 consecutive points scored and 43 straight finishes, Max Verstappen... doesn't finish a race! It paved the way for Ferrari to take a 1-2 finish at the 2024 Australian Grand Prix, with Carlos Sainz winning despite being on the operating table just 16 days ago! Joining Bryn Lucas on the Autosport F1 Podcast are Alex Kalinauckas, Filip Cleeren and in his final podcast appearance, Matt Kew, as the gang discuss Sainz's brilliance, the shock of Max's retirement and Perez's sloppy weekend trying to pick up the pieces. Also, McLaren's team orders, Fernando Alonso picking up a controversial 20-second time penalty for a block on George Russell on the final lap, and whether Williams should have given up Logan Sargeant's chassis for Alex Albon to race alone.
