It had been a decent start to the Formula 1 season – but things found a whole new level in Spain.
We had teary Thomas meeting his hero Kimi Raikkonen; it’s probably his reputation for liking ice-cream. Then there were the epic battles on track: Sebastien Vettel and Valtteri Bottas, Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel and that last chicane.
Edition 164 of The NR F1 Podcast reviews round 5 of the 2017 F1 championship, as the Spanish Grand Prix in Catalunya is lit up by Pascal Wehrlein, Esteban Ocon, Fernando Alonso and a Lewis Hamilton so hungry, he couldn’t even tell his race engineers to leave him to it.
The crew also dish out their Of The Weekend awards – with no shortage of candidates.
And if you like a bit of hindsight with your F1, then take in the pod’s Spain preview: https://audioboom.com/posts/5908301
