The NR F1 Podcast – recorded in the county that gave the world Team Lotus, Martin Brundle and a training ground to the likes of Ayrton Senna and Mark Webber – brings you its take on the latest Formula 1 news ahead of the 2017 Russian Grand Prix.

There are no punches pulled by Kyle Cumbers on the latest NR F1 Podcast, as he gets stuck into Fernando Alonso’s decision to take on Indy 500 and miss out on Formula 1’s trip to Monaco.

Just don’t fall under the impression that McLaren and Jenson Button avoid his scorn too.

Edition 156 of The NR F1 Podcast reviews the latest F1 news, comes up with the best names for Claire Williams’ forthcoming baby and wonders when they should book in that trip to visit Channel 4’s F1 host, Steve Jones.

The podcast’s Tweets & Social segment also has the best of your audio contributions over the last few weeks.

The NR F1 Podcast gets together in Norwich to send Norfolk’s views on the latest Formula 1 action out across the world.

From Team Lotus to Snetterton, Martin Brundle to the racing development of Ayrton Senna, Mark Webber, Johnny Herbert and more, Norfolk knows F1 – and wants to discuss it with you.

Over the coming week, the pod will also preview the 2017 Russian Grand Prix, bring you their predictions for the action in Sochi and take on the 2017 Global F1 Fans Survey.
