When we went on the hunt for the best Formula 1 podcasts of 2022 we wanted to do things a little bit different to normal. By now, most people know all the usual suspects such as The Race, Missed Apex, and The Inside Line as we have included these in our previous ‘Best Formula 1 Podcast’ summaries, so this year we looked for podcasts that we felt fit into the ‘best’ category, but are also new or undiscovered.
So here you have it, The Best Formula 1 Podcasts Of 2022 That Are Also New Or Undiscovered…
Best Formula 1 Podcasts Of 2022
5 Red Lights
Aaron from the 5 Red Lights podcast has the unique ability to be able to present a podcast by himself, deliver his thoughts succinctly and with confidence on video, and write well-structured articles about F1 too. It’s enough to make you sick 🤣
5 Red Lights is always honest, and steers clear of the hoopla and clickbait that a lot of other podcasts fall victim too, which is why we have the YouTube notifications turned on for this one.

Hit The Apex Podcast
Much like Aaron above, Jawad is a one-man band with his Hit The Apex podcast, utilising his skills as a writer, photographer, and passionate sports fan to put out a cracking podcast each and every time.
Although F1 is his favourite sport, the affable Aussie sometimes chats about other sports, or even life in general, and often gives you pause for thought with his musings.

F1 And Done
Ok ok, F1 And Done isn’t ‘new’ per se, but it is new to several of our team who only found it during the 2021 F1 season.
What we love about this is it is American F1 fans being brash and opinionated, and who doesn’t love that??
Their Twitter account is well worth a follow too, as there is always a fair bit of cheek on there during races.

Box Of Neutrals
Their garish green and gold artwork is an acquired taste for sure, but their episodes are spot on every time. The team have been around since 2010, but they’re Australian, so our northern-hemisphere biases robbed us of these hilarious and dynamic episodes.
That’s a mistake we’re not making twice, with the show about F1 by Michael Lamonato, Rob James, and no-one else bookmarked. Check out their Lakeside Drive Aside ep to get in the mood for the Australian Grand Prix which should hopefully happen this year…

No Track Limits F1 Podcast
The No Track Limits F1 Podcast is another that has a list of guests that we are jealous of! Natalie Pinkham, Emerson Fittipaldi, Matt Gallagher and more… Seriously, how are you podcasters getting all these guests?? Anyway…
Whether you’re an F1 novice or a long-time fan simply looking to catch up, these weekly episodes will keep you in the loop on all the latest news, race incidents and driver market movements.

Flat Chat with Codders
This is an excellent podcast that is powered by GP Racing magazine with Codders, Ben Anderson and Mark Gallagher who lift the lid on the world of Formula 1.
The great thing about this podcast is it isn’t just news or reviews, they do deep-dive episodes into incredibly interesting topics, such as ‘The Untold Story of Michael Schumacher’s F1 Debut’ which is a must-listen-to episode.

Sprint Race Show F1 Podcast
In this podcast, Emma Ridgway talks through some of the main talking points happening in Formula 1 in a shorter-than-most F1 Podcast.
What we love about Sprint Race Show F1 Podcast is that most episodes are around 15 minutes, which is perfect when you want to get caught up on the news but don’t want to hear presenters drone on for an hour or more.

Shanika and Caitlin burst onto the F1 podcasting scene, creating a community of Canadian podcasters after they noticed a void when it came to having a community of like-minded content creators.
The Get Checkered podcast comes out weekly (with sass!) and went from strength to strength in 2021, which saw the team grow by one, when Courtney joined the team. During the offseason they put out some fantastic episodes, notably a feature on Sergio Perez and a look at the rise of Pierre Gasly in F1.

Everything F1 Podcast
Everything F1 already has a huge following on Facebook and they took it up a notch in 2021 by re-launching their podcast with the perfect combo of race news and reviews, and they have also had some incredible guests on such as Sean ‘Statman’ Kelly, Edd Straw, and Peter Windsor.
Yes, we’re pretty jealous of their guest list to be honest, but we won’t hold that against them! It’s a fine podcast, and we love that they have a video version on YouTube.
Formula 1 Grid Talk Podcast
No, Grid Talk isn’t an undiscovered F1 podcast, but like we said last year, it’s our list and we’ll include ourselves if we want to 😂
Something that is new to Grid Talk this year is our F1 Firesides series, which is a mid-week podcast that will catch up on any post-race developments, and will hopefully feature some big-name guests from the world of F1 in more intimate discussions that are less structured than our race previews and reviews.
Listen to Formula 1 Grid Talk Podcast
Is there an official F1 podcast?
Yes, there is an ‘official’ F1 podcast called F1: Beyond The Grid which delivers great stories, fresh insight and amazing anecdotes from the world of F1. Each week Tom Clarkson brings you in-depth, personal conversations with the biggest names in the sport, from current superstar drivers and leading team bosses to legendary figures from history.
Are there any good F1 podcasts?
There are sooooo many good F1 podcasts out there, all you need to do is pick the one that suits your tastes best. The Formula 1 Grid Talk Podcast would have to be the best one going around, especially if you’re new to F1 and want to hear from fans who share their opinions in an easy to understand way.
F1: Beyond The Grid has the biggest names on board, as it is made by the F1 team, so naturally they have the best access.
Then there are some great crossovers who have an audio podcast but also amazing YouTube channels, such as For F1’s Sake, Missed Apex, The Inside Line, WTF1, and The F1 Strategy Report. Then of course Drive to Survive Season 4 will be released on Netflix in March of 2022 as well.
This list is by no means comprehensive, so let us know who you think the best Formula 1 podcasts of 2022 are in the comments below, and tell us why we should include them!
