episode 56: 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 ( . 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.
