Favourite Podcasts - 1 - Chequered Flag

This is the first of many BBC podcasts that make up my favourite podcasts, and one of only two F1 related podcasts.

It consists of a podcast version of the 5live pre-race show on Friday nights, and then a short review of the race posted usually a few hours from the end of each race.

The BBC Radio 5live commentary team are much better than the TV team, they seem to take the sport a bit more seriously, with much more in depth analysis and a less patronising tone. The regulars include the commentator David Croft, who holds things together, sportscar driver (and previous F1 test driver) Anthony Davidson, new recruit Natalie Pinkham, mine of F1 Knowledge and F1 historian Maurice Hamilton and occasionally Karun Chandhok, current driver for Team Lotus.

It is always great to get the pre race interviews on the Friday podcast, and it means you can always impress other F1 fans at work on the Saturday with a few random facts or gossip about the race!
