We begin the show with the fresh off-the-press yet least unexpected announcement of the year: The confirmation of the Bottas move to Mercedes, Massa's unretirement, and WEH going to Sauber.

Also a roundup of the F1-related news of the week, including RedBull/Mercedes being allowed to use their contested "Heave Element Suspension", another look at Liberty and their FIA ties and the conflict that lies there, Martin Brundle's heart attack, and a buuunch of other small stuff.  The F1 Monopoly game piece, the death of nationalism within the sport, teams as long-term share holders, F.I.&McL lofty goals etc, etc, etc... enjoy!
