Holly Samos’ new F1 podcast – ‘Back at Base’

Posted on 1st March 2024

Holly Samos takes you behind the scenes at Mercedes and Williams as they prepare for the new Formula 1 season in the new podcast series ‘F1: Back at Base.’

In an eight-part series on BBC Sounds, the podcast, narrated by Joseph Fiennes, gets rare access inside the factories in the build-up to the 2024 campaign which started this month on Bahrain.

As well as charting the race to build a new car, the podcast team speak to seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton after he announces he is leaving Mercedes for Ferrari in 2025.

Holly also interviews Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff and Hamilton’s team-mate George Russell just days after the news emerges.

The podcast also has access to Williams drivers Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant throughout the winter.

The main focus of the series, which follows the teams from November to February, is to reveal the work that goes on ‘back at base’.

“There is not really the right level of understanding and of what these days, weeks, months represent for the success of the season, for the teams,” F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali tells the podcast.

“This is not a moment where people are sleeping or recovering.”

All eight episodes are available now on BBC Sounds.
