The NRF1 Podcast brings you their take on 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 – brings you their 2017 Chinese Formula 1 Grand Prix preview.

Second race in, and we’re already asking Mercedes to make up for their botched Australian Grand Prix.

Edition 150 of The NR F1 Podcast sees host Michael Bailey and defending prediction league champion Steve Rust tee up the 2017 Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai.

They get lost in what the climate means for this year’s race, why Force India are behind Williams and who the race in China is most important for.

Plus David Tillyer is back on the phone - chicken all digested - as the pod wonders is it really going to be another race of the number ones? Surely Valtteri Bottas and Kimi Raikkonen will have something to say about that. Surely!

And if you like what you hear, then try edition 151 – as the pod makes its F1 predictions for the weekend ahead.

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.

The pod has already made its 2017 predictions, and will soon return with their review of the action in Melbourne following the season-opening Australian Grand Prix on Sunday.
