Jolyon Palmer has joined the BBC’s F1 radio coverage team for this season.

The former F1 star joins Jennie Gow and Jack Nicholls in the BBC 5 Live F1 commentary team for the 2018 campaign, and will feature on the BBC Sport website as an analyst too.

The 27-year-old joins the BBC team following a 35-Grands Prix stint with the Renault Sport F1 team across the 2016 and ’17 seasons.

Jolyon said: "I've worked with Jennie and Jack a lot but am more used to being grilled by them!”

"It's going to be great joining them in the commentary team and to get to ask the questions myself.

"I'm fascinated to see how the inter-team rivalry plays out and hope I'll be able to bring my own knowledge of the personalities involved to shed further light on the relationships."

The BBC's radio commentary covers every F1 session across its 5 Live and 5 Live Sports Extra frequencies, and is also available via the BBC Sport website and app and the official F1 live timing app.
