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 2017 Russian Formula 1 Grand Prix Review.

Well that was a shocker of a Formula 1 race – not that you’ll hear Valtteri Bottas say it. No, this was a serious weekend for Mercedes’ new kid on the block.

The Finn picked up his first grand prix win, held off Ferrari’s double challenge and left Lewis Hamilton wondering why he wasn’t having everything his own way.

For a race with only one overtake, there was a lot to keep us all going – not that Sochi isn’t on borrowed time, much like Russia’s apparent hotel shortage.


Edition 159 of The NR F1 Podcast reviews the 2017 Russian Bahrain Grand Prix in Sochi, sticks up for itself in the face of a Reddit riot and wanders through the NR F1 pit stops before the crew dishes out their Of The Weekend Awards.

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 review the latest Formula 1 news, as well as previewing the 2017 Spanish Grand Prix and bringing you their predictions for the action in Barcelona – and take on the 2017 Global F1 Fans Survey.
