The ever-popular NR F1 Podcast reviews the latest Formula 1 action.


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 – reviews the 2017 Formula 1 season, Lewis Hamilton’s record-breaking effort and dishes out its end of year awards.

That was the season that was. The year is over, the crew are eating at The Rushcutters public house in Norwich, and Callum is having to defend his views on Lewis Hamilton yet again. It must be our 2017 F1 season review.

Edition 213 of The NR F1 Podcast takes a look back at the 20-race year, discusses the merits of Formula 1’s latest four-time champion, dishes out its Of The Season Awards, takes a little look ahead to next year – and most important of all, delivers the 2017 NR F1 Prediction League final standings.

Host Michael Bailey is joined by pretty much everyone – Richard Baxter, Perry Hamilton, Kyle Cumbers, Callum Springall, Steve Rust and David Tillyer to break all the usual podcast rules including number of podcasters and eating food while record. And somehow (hopefully) deliver a superb edition to round off a very decent season indeed.

There will be more to come over the winter from Norfolk’s own globally-absorbed F1 podcast crew – but for now, a big thank you to you all from everyone at The NR F1 Podcast for enjoying the pod and getting involved. Here’s to doing it all again in 2018.

The NR F1 Podcast gets together in Norwich to send Norfolk’s views on the latest F1 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 Formula 1 – and wants to discuss it with you.

The pod’s activity this year included reviewing the British Grand Prix from the start-finish straight at Silverstone, interviewing Norwich City sporting director and F1 fan Stuart Webber and former BBC F1 host Jake Humphrey.
