Hello, I'm very glad to register here, had only read before.

I'm also Lewis's fan since far Australian GP 2007. And very pleased to see so many his fans and supporters here.
My English isn't very good because it's not my native language,so I hope you'll excuse me for this. :)

Hi all
I've been following F1 and Endurance cars since the 60's and I was there when HSCC was where it was at!
During that time, my favourite team has changed a few times as teams came and went. Initially it was BRM or Lotus, then Lotus alone, then, and now, Mclaren.
Glad to have finally found this forum.

Gareth

Hi,

I'm just a lad from Sweden. Been following F1 since early 2000nds. I was just a little kid then and Michael was my hero.

Right now i'm trying to save up some money,so i could ern a degree and hopefully end up designing racecars!

Out of the current drivers I really like Seb. Because, for me, he's very easy to relate to. That is probably going to shine through in my posts.

 

 

Happy foruming everybody!

 

 

Edit: Also i'm a bit ashamed i've never accually been to a race, but i'll try to fix that as soon as possible!

Long time lurker and finally got round to setting up a profile.  Been following F1 since the 80s, but really started getting into it in the mid 90s

 

Am a Mclaren fan (which hasn't been much fun this season so far), but look forward to things getting better soon. 

 

Happy foruming everybody!

Hello :)

Im Craig & im a raging homo.

I am a huge HAM fan. He is the reason I started watching F1 and now its become one of my five a day.

Im really glad Sky show classic races everynight so I can catch up on all pre 2007 races they show.

I tend to have a habbit of getting banned from forums due to my language but who gives a **** aslong as HAM wins.

See you around bitches

Just registered a couple months ago, but rarely post.  

 

I never really followed F1 until 2011.  Before that I only watched races when I happened to come across them on tv.  Followed AMA a lot more since I used to ride.  

 

I'm a Sebastian Vettel fan, mostly because he's got the same name as my kid.  Other guys I'm a fan of are Kimi and Hamilton.  I also find myself cheering for Massa a lot this year.

Hello, I've been an F1 for more than 20 years now and I enjoy F1 more than ever before for obvious reasons (I'm from Mexico and finally we have a very good driver out there! :clap: )

 

Anyway, just getting familiar with....

 

 

C-ya round!  :rotfl:

Hello all,

I'm finally glad I'm able to post now. Took about two days to get permissions... I can understand spambots trying to get through so I can see the new user block... But sometimes I found new users able to post within hours, so I don't have a clue...

Anyways, with that aside, already I'm looking forward to the next race, as long as the FIA doesn't foul up again. Everything they seem to do gets negative press. At least the racing is good this year. Rosberg looks very good this year... Hard to believe as he didn't deliver at Williams and didn't do anything of note until 2012! Crazy how much his career has grown... All that's missing now is a world title.

Hey, been reading the boards for around 4 years, decided to finally register and maybe contribute to the multitude of sensible, unbiased discussions on here.

 

Long, long, long time Ferrari supporter, even before the Schumi years. Live in Jody Scheckters old home town in South Africa and one of my best mate's dad used to work on his cars before he moved to Europe. Considering he's the only Saffer WDC AND he drove a Ferrari, it makes him quite a legend in my eyes :)

Hello. I used to post on another forum until it became defunct a couple of years ago. I thought I was going to give up F1 forums (to free up time!) but I've found myself lurking on here sometimes, so I thought I might as well sign up.

Hi everyone!

 

Just joined today - was looking for a forum to discuss F1 - lets face it, there is LOTS to discuss these days! :stoned:

 

Favourite all time = Ayrton Senna

Current favourite = Lewis Hamilton

 

Who do I think is the best current driver? Perhaps Alonso, perhaps Hamilton.

Hi folks,

 

Followed the forum for yonks but had never actually posted anything. This is the most engrossed I've been in a season since 2010, so it seemed like a good time to join :-)

 

Started following in 08, but know a reasonable amount about F1 prior to then. Also take part in a Prediction League and contribute the occasional piece of analysis and satire over at the mighty http://formulaoneana...blogspot.co.uk/ Expect a few Friday practice analysis reports coming during the season!

 

Looking forward to getting involved and having some good debates ;-)

 

Nate

Hi everybody,

 

My name is Igor. I'm a 34 yo brazilian who follows F-1 since 84 (as a 4 yo) and who never got into the coutry pride bandwagon. I'm a ferrarista above all, and see, I waited till I was 20 (16 years) to see my beloved team win a Drivers Championship. I admired Nelson Piquet a lot for his knowledge about the setup of a racing car. Was very uncomfortble about the obsession I felt in Senna since 1985 when he arrived at Lotus, besides I think he's a genious, probably the greatest, but never got into me. Loved the way Prost was so skilled that he doesn't needed to be brave, and had a lot of fun with Mansell's overbraveness,lol. 

From what I call the modern F-1, I'm totally a Michael Schumacher fan, but I'm a ashamed to say it sometimes because he played dirty sometimes, but this don't take an inch of his talent, which I think is the most close to Senna's. Learned to like Alonso and his skillfull drive, and the nice guy character of Button. I predicted Vettel as a world champion since his show in Monza with an STR and I like him a lot, but he's not the genius people use to label. Dislike Hamilton a lot but Rosberg plays as dirt as him. 

I really see F-1 a  great entertain as in the past, when we lived the Dream Era (ProstXSennaxPiquetxMansell) but not that romantic. Yet, a race still can take the air of my lungs.

Hi Folks,

 

Long time reader of the Forum. Been an avid F1 fan since I was a kid, don't ask how long ago that was, I forgot! I have my own kids now so go figure...

 

Cheers

Hello all, just decided to join these forums and have a look around. I am a long time fan of the late great Ayrton Senna and now pin my pennant to the mast of the God that is Fernando Alonso. I'm middle aged, three kids but sadly they have rebelled against my brain washing techniques to get them into F1 ):

Long time browser/lurker, frequent user of another F1 forum which appears to be dying.

 

I'm 26 years old, Irish, and trying my damnedest to write about F1 professionally (I don't want to say journalist as I feel like a fraud!). Have attended races as press with more scheduled, and write as often as I can, juggling it with my job as a radio presenter and club DJ!

 

I also have a cat, her name is Snowy. She is a Persian and has a flat face, and is pure white, just like Mr Tinkles in the film 'Cats & Dogs'.

Hi all, a 23 year old former Sports Journalism student and long, lomg time browser of the forum. I don't know why I didn't join sooner but there you go.

Been a motorsports fan since I was about 4 or 5 years old; F1, Indycars, WTCC, BTCC, Moto GP, etc. You name it and I'll probably watch it. My favourite driver of all time is and probably always will be Nigel Mansell. I've never been fortumate enough to meet him though I did meet one of my other motorsport favourites, John Cleland, at Oulton Park this year.

Been to one F1 race, Britain 1999, where I remember seeing Heinz-Harald Frentzen and some Jordan mechanics messing about at a burger bar haha. Been watching BTCC twice at Oulton Park, 2000 and this year, and hoping to go next year. I'm also trying to go to the Formula E race in London next year, after going to one of the open tests it turned me from a sceptic into a fan.

Think that's about everything, except for the fact my girlfriend hates motorsport. But hey ho life isn't perfect haha.

Cheers, Callum.
