Formula 1 podcast: F1 Racing magazine 2017 season preview

The first Autosport podcast of 2017 looks forward to the upcoming Formula 1 season with F1 Racing magazine

Formula 1 podcast: F1 Racing magazine 2017 season preview

The podcast was recorded in the Bibendum restaurant on London's Fulham Road in late-January, before pre-season testing had started, but has been released now to coincide with the UK release of the season preview issue of F1 Racing.

Associate editor James Roberts welcomes three special guests to look ahead to the 2017 season: former Renault and Williams technical chief Pat Symonds, Sky Sports F1 analyst and commentator Martin Brundle and F1 Racing columnist Peter Windsor.

Among the topics tackled are how F1 hit on its new regulations package and the potential impact on the racing, how well Mercedes newcomer Valtteri Bottas will do up against Lewis Hamilton and McLaren's hopes.

The new-look April issue - on sale in the UK from today - has been printed on thicker, higher quality paper, with a fresh design and rich new content.

Inside the issue is a joint interview with Red Bull drivers Dan Ricciardo and Max Verstappen, a trip to Maranello to glimpse the new Ferrari, an exclusive sit-down with Lewis Hamilton, a training session with new boy Lance Stroll and a driving Masterclass with Jolyon Palmer.

Plus, there's your guide to every circuit, every team and every driver competing in the 2017 world championship - and much more besides.

The new-look April issue appears on magazine stands, subscriber doormats and online from this week, offering a revitalised and authoritative preview to Formula 1's new season.

The times that suggest Verstappen should be confident of F1 Russian GP recovery

For the second race in a row, Mercedes has ended the first day of track action on top.

OPINION: With its days apparently numbered, the MGU-H looks set to be dropped from Formula 1’s future engine rules in order to entice new manufacturers in. While it may appear a change of direction, the benefits for teams and fans could make the decision a worthwhile call

OPINION: Formula 1 reconvenes for the Russian Grand Prix two weeks after the latest blow in ‘Max Verstappen vs Lewis Hamilton’.
