As we sat in Jonathan Palmer’s Brands Hatch office we overlooked a motorbike track day in action and were served bacon sandwiches, fresh coffee and orange juice – as podcasts go, we were already onto a winner (not a good one to miss Simon Arron…).
You’ll be pleased to hear the content was also great as Jonathan talked about Jolyon’s success in GP2 this year, the state of Formula 1 and why he has so far not been tempted to run a team. We also looked back at his career and how he managed to train as a doctor while racing in Formula Ford (reading medical notes while hammering up the M1, towing his racer).
As a side note, I took the editor to and from the podcast in my 1992 750cc Fiat Panda. While I doubt he will be buying one anytime soon, he wasn’t totally disgusted by it. Having said that, it was a far cry from the helicopter Jonathan arrived in. If you would like to subscribe to the Motor Sport podcasts then visit our iTunes page.
