Welcome to the Planet-F1 Forum.

Please use this thread to introduce yourself to the forum. Perhaps tell everyone which driver or team you support.

The forum is divided into two areas;

The Planet F1 Chat or the "On Topic" forum where discussions about all types of motorsport happen. From F1 to MotoGP you'll find lively threads on it here.

The Planet F1 "Off Topic" forum for the discussion of movies, music, entertainment.....basically anything that hasn't got an engine.

So before you start, please take some time to read the forum rules and guidelines for new members located in the sticky thread on the front page of the forum.

And then get busy posting!

Regards,

The Planet F1 Moderation Team

Hello all, long time lurker so I thought I'd finally sign up with the season fast approaching :)

I have long been loyal to McLaren going back to the Hakkinen and Coulthard era, and have been a long term Button fan with a soft spot for Lewis (even if he can be a bit of an idiot at times ;) ).
Oh and I'm a bit partial to Force India as well; I'm hoping for good things from them this year, Hulkenburg and Di Resta will hopefully push each other up the grid.

Can't wait for the season to begin and I'm just hoping someone can stop that dreaded finger this year!

Hi all :D been a long time lurker (as far back as summer 2010 now!!) and I spent FAR too much of my time reading posts on here, so what with the new forum and all I thought why not.

Have to say, like the new forum alot :nod: like the colour scheme, always thought the one on the main website was good, and it looks alot more modern.

Little bit about me and F1, been watching F1 since 2004, diehard Jenson fan (note the lack of the letters b o and y at the end there ;) ), and haven't missed a grand prix since Suzuka 2003, except for Oz '09. Got it recorded, but just never got round to watching it... :lol:

Hi, I have been a long time lurker, but with the company or paid email requirement I couldn't join the forum. I am a Mclaren fan and a Lewis fan and I have followed F1 since the early 90's.

G'day from surprisingly sunny Ohio. I've been poking around here for a few months after I stumbled on PF1 looking for an F1 news site. My background in motorsport is disjointed; my father has worked most of his life for Honda in the states so I got into the CART series in the early 90s, and I now find it funny that at the time, I believed F1 to be an inferior series (I was probably around 8 when I concluded this). The CART/IRL debacle in 1996 effectively ended my enthusiasm for the sport and really forgot about motorsport altogether since about 2000, somewhat ironically as I was lucky to attend the first GP at Indianapolis the next year, my first and unfortunately only GP to date. I'm not sure but for some reason I began to tune into F1 near the end of 2009 and then really got back into it last season from the Canadian GP on. With no Americans in the field and with this likely to be so for some time, I haven't really a team or driver to cheer for other than for competitive races. That said, I do hope Honda gets back into the F1 circus, even if only as an engine supplier - this would greatly enhance my opportunity to score tickets to future US GPs.

Another lurkr here joined up for the new forum.
But there is something different with this one...
You see, I am not ein Englander, as a German once called me, but rather ein Nordirlander. Ja. I come from that plot of desolate, empty, pointlessly stupid, incredibly violent, impossibly indecisive, hopelessly divided, ignorant, thickly-accented, Ulster-Scots speaking, yet at times achingly beautiful plot of leftover Ireland called Norn Iron.

I hope I'm welcome here- I hope my posting style (i.e random) is suited. Looking at the old forum, I think it might just be.
I have just one question though:
HOW has bought the Honda F1 team?
:]

Evening, Long time F1 fan since 1990ish. Never posted though. Nigel Mansell fan originally but these days would like to see Webber and Button do well. Never liked Schumacher first time round but would like to see him get a win or two aswell.

Hey all,

Been watching F1 since Imola 1989 - the complete breakdown of Prost and Senna. Was a big Senna fan, but these days just like watching good racing. I love the history of motorsport and I have a soft spot for Jim Clark as I grew up reading about him. I'm based in Melbourne at the moment and will be going to my first F1 GP in a few weeks! :]

Hello to you all

Hi - long time F1 fan here. I get goosebumps on every race start. I'm a big supporter of Sebastian Vettel, but wouldn't mind a few more podiums for Jenson this season

Apart from that, I am the person that built the servers that this place runs on (I didn't decorate it though, nice job timl)

Been lurking for a bit here, thought it was about time to sign up. Have been following F1 casually for years but have only become a big fan since the Canadian GP last year.

Favourite drivers: Webber, Raikkonen, Button, Ricciardo.

Hi, long time lurker, thought i'd throw myself into the mix

28 years old, been a fan as long as I can remember. Bit of a homer or the brits but i'm pretty impartial and as long as the racing is exciting i'm happy to watch.

Loved the Canadian Grand Prix last year, and many of the races in general. Hoping that with Kimi back on the grid we can have a real tight battle around the top 5 teams. Great season last year just needed some more tension with regards the drivers championship.

No paticular favourite team, but I do like seeing the minnows near the front of the grid. Guess I like the underdog.

It was indeed. For reasons that may therefore be entirely unfair on this member, I'm keeping an eye on the account.

If our suspicions are wrong, I apologise now.
