56: The Lando Norris Interview With Parc Fermé

56: The Lando Norris Interview With Parc Fermé


Yes, THE Lando Norris makes an appearance on the Inside Line F1 Podcast, courtesy of our friends at Parc Fermé, one of the leading Motorsport publications in the Nordics. In this fun interview, Norris dishes out Motorsport and life philosophies on how he would cope if stuck with a bad racing car all season, his social media presence and how his mistaken reveal of Mclaren’s launch date for the 2020 car was a planned gimmick after all.

Lando Norris explains his love for sim racing and why iRacing is better than most others. And of course, he discusses what he’s looking forward to the most in 2021 when he partners Daniel Ricciardo at Mclaren. Tune in to enjoy classic Lando banter!

Also in this episode, Mithila makes a comeback to the Inside Line F1 Podcast (https://link.chtbl.com/ilf1p) . The duo (Mithila-Kunal) tell you why Romain Grosjean’s human side shouldn’t be trolled after his unexpected exit from Haas, rival teams disallowing a ‘young’ Fernando Alonso to test in Abu Dhabi, Formula 1’s $104 mn loss in Q320 and if ‘work from home’ could be an option for team personnel as Formula 1 seeks to keep expanding it’s annual calendar.

6:00-9:00 – Did you know: Lewis Hamilton has only 10 DNFs in his Formula 1 career that are attributed to car failure (yes, Malaysia 2016 being the most painful?)

9:00-12:00 – Formula 1’s $104 mn in Q320 – but ‘helmets off’ for pulling off a 17-race calendar this season

12:00-15:00 – Should rival Formula 1 teams have allowed Fernando Alonso to test at the young-driver test in Abu Dhabi later this season?

18:00-21:00 – Romain Grosjean has handled his exit from Haas so gracefully that it only makes him more likeable + GRO’s way of handling career crisis makes him so relatable
