Hi all,

My name is Michael Coles. I live in Bathurst, Australia, about 2 minutes from the world famous race track. My main motorsport interest has naturally been through V8 Supercar Racing, due to the Bathurst 1000 race being a huge local event.

Only been following F1 properly since about 2010. Favourite current drivers are Raikkonen, Ricciardo and Rosberg. I don't typically follow any teams strongly (more drivers) but would say I have a soft spot for Ferrari.

Cheers,
Michael

Hi

New to the forum.
Been a fan of F1 for over 30 years.
I've been reading the forum for a while thought it was about time I started to participate.

Hello all,

I am a member from of more than 10 years. They have just lost my data & locked me out so have re-registered again 4 or more times over (they do this every now & again). I was happy to do it as since Dec'14 my pages were not being renewed & my logon block was just a white square. So I am hopeful this will get that sorted until their servers again have a come-over. Best wishes to all - let's go racing ...

Hello,

I have recently registered from America, but don't hold it against me.

I love all cars but especially F1

My favorite team Scuderia Toro Rosso , but I am Nicolas "Nico" Hülkenberg fan he really is a all around racer.

Only been to a few GP's hope that changes

Of course we all hope and pray for Schumi and his Family

Take care CK

Hey all! Figure it makes sense to introduce myself before I dive in and start posting.

I'm a fairly new F1 fan from the US (or possibly "very new", depending on your scale of such things), although that story would most likely have been different if I'd had access to F1 on the TV when I was growing up. As it is, this is still my first year of watching every race, and my second year of following along the whole season -- I started watching regularly with Interlagos last year after watching scattered bits of the weekend starting with Singapore. I mainly support Ferrari and Räikkönen, but I always hope for McLaren and Williams to do well also (clearly that's not happening for one of 'em this year), as well as Vettel, Alonso, Button, and Ricciardo.

I keep lurking the forums, so joining is the obvious thing to do. I don't have anyone other than my family to talk about F1 with in person, so it'll be good to have somewhere to do that!

Hi everyone, I am Branovitsj, 27 years old, living in Belgium.
I'm a native Dutch speaker, so please excuse me when I make some grammatical errors.

I am a big F1-fan since I was a child, still love the sport and staying home to watch every race!
I'm a fan of Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstappen.

That's about it I think?

Hi All,

I'm from Belgium, mainly interested in F1 and the feeder series, although I do seem to enjoy the Formula E these days too (their length and free availability on YT just fits perfectly with my hometrainer schedule ;-) ).

I live 1 hour away from Zolder (where I went to see Champcar in 2006 and was amazed by the openness of it all). and 2 hours away from Spa (where I go to see FR 3.5 every year, I find F1 just too expensive and cramped).

Generally I like "talent" over anything else and can't really say I'm a fan of anyone (although I admit I'm rooting strongly for Vandoorne and Frijns). I cherish professionalism, rationalism and intellect and sometimes have trouble appreciating drivers with less obvious talent sticking around, because they somehow managed to convince some rich people they're worth it.
I also fail in many other departments but am open for critique.;-)

Thanks for having me around!

My Name is Paul. I live in Appalachian panhandle of Maryland, USA. I am a relative newbie to Formula 1. Even though my bachelors degree was in mechanical engineering, I tended to ignore motorsports for most of my life because it seemed an excuse to watch people get killed on much too regular a basis. It just seemed foolish. In 2013 I saw articles in Wired and other popular technology outlets talking about the 2014 Formula 1 technology and I thought it was fascinating, appealed to my style of engineering thinking which is about finesse more than blunt power. That, along with NBCSN in the USA beginning regular broadcasts made it both accessible and interesting. I started watching towards the end of the 2013 season.

I knew that I would enjoy it more by picking a driver to follow and I picked Lewis Hamilton (seen on Top Gear, liked him a lot) not knowing that Mercedes would come to dominate. (Seriously, I picked BEFORE the 2014 season. Honest, I did!) I quickly grew to hate Red Bull because of their continual whining entitled arrogance. Grow up, Newey and Horner, Grow up. It has been a bit boring to watch knowing Mercedes win and win. But, it seems all the proposed solutions avoid simplicity and directness. Just get on with racing. Stop managing to the nut size.

I'm going to follow Haas Formula 1 as the first American team in 30 years. I will be cheering for them as a team even while cheering for Hamilton as a great driver.

I think Bernie Ecclestone is about to kill his golden goose by being so intent on squeezing every single penny out of every single person he meets. The sport will be in turmoil for a while, but probably better off within a decade of his leaving/death.

That's it! I love forums for sports, shooting it about opinion and learning from others.

Hi all,

I've just recently joined and as a fan of F1 since the mid 2000's I can't believe i've only just found this forum! I'm a Button fan personally but support everyone British so obviously I'm cheering on Hamilton and Palmer as well.

I actually came across this forum as i've been looking for F1 fans to help test a Formula 1 Prediction Tool prototype application that I have developed as part of my University dissertation. Hopefully some of you can spare 10-20 minutes to assist with this - i'll be posting more details about this in the next day or two!

Mark

Hello,

My name is Sabrina I'm 25 and from Ireland. My love of formula 1 came from my father who took me to my first grand prix when I was 7 in 1998. Of course we were cheering on the Jordan's! After that experience I was hooked and I always try to listen to every race and qualifying. These day's I don't particularly have a favorite team, my favorite driver is Vettel though he is very funny and a huge talent.

Hope to make some friends, thank you for reading! :)

Hi,

Finally got my account activated after signing up over a year ago. Have been lurking ever since and been enjoying the more level headed conversation about F1 here. I haven't been following F1 for any where near as long as a lot of people here but been more active in watching since 2009 (first time I went to F1 live was in Australia 2003, that was fun).

Cheers, Marc.

This is a reintroduction (I was briefly active about seven years ago lol). [Edit - I see I originally joined in 2006 lol so its 10 years]

I,m a Kiwi living in England and I must admit I have been less into F1 this year, but I saw the Kvyat demotion and I thought I would come on and see what people are saying!!!

Well hello everyone!

Hi All.

I was a longtime member years ago when Michael Schumacher was racing. I kind of lost my taste for the sport when he left but am starting to get the bug again. I'm still a Schumacher fan that will never change because in my eyes he was the best. It's great to be back!

Hi guys!

I'm from Australia (Sydney) and have been following F1 for about 12 years or so.
I don't follow a team really, but favourite drivers are Ricciardo, Button and Alonso. Can't stand Hamilton AT all...
I also hope Kyvat can turn his fortunes around and really make a few people sit up and take notice for all the right reasons again.

So hello!

Hi all.

Have been visiting the forum for quite a few years and a few months ago I decide to sign up.

Hello everyone,
Fav driver and team differs a bit from race to race. I like to support the under dog.

Have been reading the forum for some time and learned a lot from you guys.

Thanks

Hello all !

Nice to be here and it will be fun to chat a bit with you all about Formula 1 !


My name is Tom and as the username suggests I am from the Netherlands and I am following Max for the past five years now and with great enjoyment.
I do think highly of other drivers as well, and I look forward to a great 2017 season !


Not sure if this is the right way to start on this forum, and if there's anything else I need to do to be "approved" just let me know :)

Good evening all,

An avid reader of this forum over the last couple of seasons, and hope to contribute my opinions and thoughts which can create great debates.

I have been an avid F1 fan for the last 12 years now, with my favourite team being McLaren. I'm saying this I do have a soft spot for red bull after what they have achieved in the sport.

Hey all
35 year old F1 nut here. Followed F1 since the early 90's (remember Monaco 92 as the first race I ever watched and the epic Senna / Mansell battle)
If anyone was on the ITV-F1 and GrandPrixMagazine forums back in the day, I was the residential Arrows F1 fanatic.
Since their most upsetting demise I latched onto Renault through the Alonso years and since their return as a manufacturer, is my team of choice.

Hello All- I'm Herb from Michigan and have been a long time McLaren supporter. It's been very rough going and I'm now relatively allegiance free. I like the Mercedes team but would like to see someone else challenging up front. I'm hopeful that the new rules mix things up at top.

Retired Texan Mike here, I am an old-school "F1nut" that has sought out F1 races on the boob tube since 1972 and Emmo's first championship in the Lotus-Ford72D. I am a Sir Jackie Stewart fan along with John Surtees who should have had a "Knighthood" too IMHO as the only man ever with World Championships on 2 wheels and 4 and recently very sadden to hear of his passing - he was my Isle of Mann hero, (I have all the old Isle dvds).

Nothing was better than the Speed Channel's Varsha, Hobbs and Matchett and I miss Bob's insight and comments and prefer him over Diffey and can honestly say I hate having to follow F1 on NBCSN's lousy coverage, with all the commercials and haven't figured out yet how to watch MotoGP on something called "bein Sports" but happy to find a F1 forum to follow and communicate with other fans.

I have loved F1 and MotoGP most of my life and I am 50+ year motorcyclist, now in my 60s that still enjoys cruising on my old '05 Vulcan Nomad bagger, as for more than two decades I rode them exclusively while working in Houston, Texas where I was once slated to drive a multi-engined Streamliner for my old scoot mechanic at Bonneville Salt Flats before he passed and the project ended.
