e155 - McLaren the disgrace and Max the idiot | The NR F1 Podcast

Three DOWN in the 2017 Formula 1 season - and some should already be put OUT of their misery.

Sure, Lewis Hamilton blew his chance of 25 points by making his Mercedes too wide in the pit lane. Yes, Sebastian Vettel looked comfortable enough that even Ferrari couldn't mess up his race. And of course, Valtteri Bottas undermined his excellent Saturday come Sunday.

But as edition 155 of The NR F1 Podcast reviews the 2017 Bahrain Grand Prix in Sakhir, it finds it too tempting not to twist the knife on McLaren as Stoffel Vandoorne fails to start the race - never mind finish it. Then there's Max Verstappen - great racer, but not quite as efficient when it comes to Brazilians.

The Sakhir weekend gets the full treatment from the NR F1 crew - including the pod's Of The Weekend Awards.


As mentioned by Rich, teenage racer Billy Monger suffered life-changing injuries while competing at the weekend - here's the link to help him with his recovery: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/billymonger23

Everyone at The NR F1 Podcast sends Billy all our very best wishes for the future.


The British county of Norfolk is where the iconic success of Team Lotus was cultivated, where Ayrton Senna, Martin Brundle, Mark Webber and more honed their race craft - and home to The NR F1 Podcast.
