I've been following Formula 1 since the late 1970's and the sport is really just getting better and better. Gone is the races where both drivers from the best team came home one lap ahead of everybody else. Today every race is exciting. Well, apart from Monaco, that is...

I just can't wait till the 2013 season takes off in March!

Hi,
I've followed F1 since the 90's. Supporting Senna and Mansell. I initially really enjoyed Schumacher's reign, but I got tired of watching the race to see who came second, so I tuned out for a bit. Funnily enough my other half got me back into it as we started watching it together a couple of years ago. She's a Vettel fan, while I support Lotus (bet that's a surprise, what may be a bit more suprising is I like both drivers) as well as Jenson, who I really want to see win the British GP this year.

We went to our first GP last year (Silverstone) and enjoyed it immensely. I joined up because, other than my other half, I don't know many people that into F1, so I'm looking forward to getting involved with the community.

Hi! I have been following F1 since 2007, had watched it on and off before that but 2007 was when the obsession started!
I am the blogger behind my very own F1 blog http://8enginerule.wordpress.com
I am a huge Mclaren fan, Hakkinen was one the first drivers I really noticed. While I love Mclaren, I am happy to many drivers win, generally as long as it isn't Alonso winning! :)

Anyway, Hello, thank you for having me here and hope to chat with you all and maybe you could check out my blog too :)

New from Iowa, Us.
Ive followed F1 more and more every year, but have been watching bits and peices since Schu was at Ferrari.
I dont have a cable, so I stream all my races on line and perfer Skys F1 coverage to anyone elses. Hated Speeds coverage, cant wait to see what the new provider brings to the table.
I follow Ferrari of course, but also enjoy watching Button and Lewis. Dissipointed in Lewis for moving away from the Mclaren to Mercedes, but we all need to make changes in our life in order to grow. Alonso is my favorite driver, I think Ferrari turnipped him bad last year and owe him a championship. I think Massa is a great team mate, glad he stepped his game up a bit. I think it would be cool if Ferrari would bring in a young gun straight out of GP2 to fill Massa's seat and allow Alonso to teach him the ways before retiring. Those are just a few of my thoughts.
Btw, I do wake up at 3am in the morning to stream a race live, I love the sport and hope to get to a race soon.

Hey,

I've been reading the forums since September but have had some trouble registering. I love reading the forum has many of you have a lot more knowledge on F1 than I could ever have.

I'm 25 and live in London.

I'm a Hamilton (god forbid) Grosjean and Sauber fan. Gutted that Koboyashi hasn't got a drive this season but looking forward to seeing what Hulkenburg can do in the car.

I'm 18 and I've been watching formula one ever since I saw Michael Schumacher's pole lap in Melbourne 2003, live on television. Haven't missed a single race ever since. I'm the guy who postpones family reunions to watch a race live, because I hate recording it. I'm a Schumi fan (yeah, ha-ha). Right now I'm just pumped to see what Hulkenberg and Perez can do, how good Lewis will cope with adversity and how much cool stuff will happen in what will be an epic 2013 season.

Hi.

Just joined but have been reading the site and forums for a few years now.

I'v been following F1 since my teens in the mid 90s and followed Williams. My job then took me away for a bit and I wasnt able to really follow it. When I came back to it I followed Mclaren mainly due to Mr Hamilton who I will keep following at Mercedes but will always have a soft spot for Williams and hope to see them fighting at the top a bit more.

An engineer by trade I like all things automotive and have a couple of projects ongoing. Ive got a small dog Diesel and a tortoise called Jenson.

Hello,

New here from Canada. I have been following F1 for roughly 15 years and been to 5 Canadian GP's. I am a big fan of Williams and havent missed a quali or race in 3 years even though some are late night/early morning starts.

In my spare time I lap at a few tracks in my area and constantly play iracing.

I am also hoping to make my way down to the U.S. GP this year.

Long time lurker. Love the up to date news and info given by members of the forum. So thank you and keep up the good work. Hopefully my posts will be as insightful to everyone hear as yours have been to me.

Haven't really followed F1 too long maybe 6 full seasons.

Forza Ferrari and Forza Lotus! Two of the really truly prestigious auto makers.

Avante Kimi and avante Massa! When I started watching F1 these 2 guys were really on their game and have been a fan ever since. Really felt for Felipe since Hungary but he has since made a return to the form I/we remember. Lets hope he starts strong in Australia.

Besides the above listed I would like to see #BOTTAS and Pastor bring Williams back into the top 3.

Well until next time ...

MAXIMUM ATTACK

Erm... I don't recall now, I think a couple of people did. Within a fortnight the role had fallen to me!
