Hello Everyone,

I live in Cumberland Indiana USA and have always been here in central Indiana.

The first thing that really ignited my passion for auto racing was attending the 1968 Indianapolis "500" at the age of 9 and being instantly captivated by the day-glow red STP Lotus turbine cars that so nearly won that race. Their shape, color and sound was, for me at that time, like seeing something from another world, I guess!

Anyway, being where I am, I often attend the many midget and sprint car races we have locally. Most of all I like sprint cars on the high-banked pavement tracks: Winchester, Salem and Anderson in Indiana. I'd love to see what a current Formula One car could do at one of these places!

For the last several years I've been very much a fan of the racing simulation "Grand Prix Legends" and have a current ranking of -9 for those of you who know what that is. Getting it negative was a BIG DAY for me, I can tell you sincerely! A long time coming and a lot of laps.

I"m a big fan of the Jordan team and always hope they do well, although I just enjoy seeing good racing who ever wins.

Bye for now.

Bruce Tomlin

Hello...

Thought I'd drop a line to introduce myself, I've used atlas before and I think it's a top site, My man is a long time member and I think he's a bit fed up with me looking over his shoulder all the time so I got him to buy me a subscripition. :kiss:

I've been following F1 for years, family sundays around the TV. I have pledged my alligence Williams and Mclaren, but have huge respect for those darstadly Red Cars and Shui.. Senna, Hill and Mansell are my heros from those days.

Man and I go to as many races as full time jobs will allow, We do Goodwood every year, went to Barcelona last year and had a Fab time, Had a very Jammy day in the Paddock, Met JPM and Sir Frank, had an absolute blast courtesy of a mate who works for a sponsor.

Anyway, that's enough about me I'm off for a look around,

See Ya! :wave:

Hello,

I'm 19 years from Switzerland. I basically speak french, so my english isn't very good. I subscribed to AtlasF1 on spring 2002 and I'm coming daily to look at the news and pictures. I'm reading the forum only since 2-3 months and I was surprised to find very interesting discussions, particularely about technical stuff.

I'm looking F1 on TV for over ten years, but only became a addicted since 2001. Before, I liked both Ayrton Senna and Nigel Mansell. I remember that I was supporting also a white-red car, whose driver was called Hakkinen. I liked this name... but he wasn't winning races, so it was bad. Then came the 1st May 1994 when I saw live the Senna crash. I was so terrified... It scarred me a lot and then there was a german, Michael Schumacher, that was winning all the races. I supported Hill, but didn't looked as many races as before Senna's death. I heard then that Schumacher did some unfair manoeuvres. In 1995 I was another time scared when Mika crashed at Adelaide. Schumacher was still in front... I looked at him on the podium and I didn't liked his face, his arrogance and his antisportive wheel-turns on the track. So I started hating him... In 1996 I was so happy when Hill finally had his WDC title. After that in 1997, I was supporting Jacques Villeneuve, and he was so brilliant. Schumacher tryied to hit the Williams, but he failed. I remember I was laughing like crazy.

In 1998, I was back with Mika. I was a great fan of him as he was finally winning races and beating Schumacher. I was really happy for him when he became champion in Suzuka. It was all the same during 1999, but it was a bit easier as Schumacher crashed in Silverstone and was out. Irvine hadn't enough speed to come along Mika and he won his second title at Suzuka. Irvine was funny after his crash in the race. Mika was funny as well and I liked when he was doing the gesture of winning, with the arms in sqare, with the fist in the air, in front of the team enjoying his victory behind the barrier, after Mika comes out of the car. I liked that very much...

In 2000 it wasn't very good at the start, because Schumacher was back, winning all the races. Coulthard was doing better than Mika, and I was impressed by David's job. I thought he could maybe win once a championship... but finally Mika came back and struggled for the title again. Unfortunately, Mercedes engine's failure in Indianapolis was the end of Mclaren good times and Ferrari won the title with Schumi in Suzuka. That was really disappointing, because I felt that it would come.... Ferrari was growing since years and the finally did it.

At this point, I became really a F1 fan, because before that, I was juste looking the races on TV with my father, since I was child in fact... In 2000 I started looking also qualifying and after the 2000 season I discovered F1-Live.com site and I became addicted to Formula 1.

Talking about teams, I like Sauber very much, because I'm so proud of them, being swiss. I admire Peter Sauber, because he's a really good personality for motorsport, an especially F1. I did such a big job, that's impressive. I also like McLaren since many years... since Hakkinen in 1994.

So, it was in september 2000, when I looked at the news on F1-Live.com and I saw someone called Räikkönen, testing the C19 at Mugello. I remember again the time.... something like 1'27''1 and Schumi was running at 1'26''3, and the driver called Räikkönen was Finn and did only karting and Formula Renault. It was the first sign that came to me, this 0''8 between them. I remember feeling something special in my mind when I realised what this driver was doing... I didn't knew Peter Sauber very well at that time, and I neither knew Kimi. He continued doing good test session and the swiss team was impressed by him. That was the second sign. Eeckelaert was telling that Kimi was amazing and that was incredible for me. After that, when FIA gave him only the superlicence for 4 races, I thought that they were right because Kimi was so unexperienced.

The third and last sign was Melbourne 2001. He qualifyied 13th I remember and he was something like only three tenths behing Heidfeld. And then he finnished 6th and said he wasn't satisfied because there were five driver in front of him. That was incredible, I was so suprised. I realised that this driver had a huge potential and that he would be world champion one day. All the people working with him were telling the same things, and I was happy also because he only was 21 years old.

Since then, I'm a huge Kimi Räikkönen Fan and I collect all the news, pictures, videos and all the stuff related to him. I'm also member of the official Kimi Raikkonen Fan Club. I'm posting on different french F1 forums to fight for Kimi, for his credibility. I remember it wasn't easy in 2001, because they all were focussing on Montoya. And then in 2002 it was difficult too because they all said "look at the placing in WC" and he was behind DC because of all the failure of the car in the race. I was so happy when he fought with Montoya in Hockenheim and Hungaroring... and times goes by... now he's has won his first race, he has finished all the time on the podium except Barcelona and he's leading the WDC and it so strange because there are more and more Kimi fans. But in 2001 there was nobody on the forums.

So, when I read AtlasF1 forum, I'm only stopping rolling the thread when I see a post of HSJ. :up:
No, I'm joking. I read all of you, but you know my favourites.;)

Hi i'm a 20 year old Melbournian or Australian specifically.This isn't the first time i've posted nor the first time i've been registered, after something happened i couldn't log in again or something because i hadn't been on for a few months well longer than that actually. Anyways I'm a Ferrari fan not exclusively. Being an Aussie I have a soft spot for Webber and am happy he has been signed til 2005 with jag. I went to my first GP this year in Melbourne - appalling I know ! Despite the shite weather we were subjected to that lead to my clothes and shoes being covered in mud - i'm a girl it's ok to complain about that right ? End of complaint. It was very much worth it, I was on turn eleven plenty of action. Despite my poor sense of technical knowledge , which I'm able to admit , I am learning, the technical forum has become my new home - thanks to all who painfully and in detail explain things to me. This years changes have probably made me interested in F1 again, Ferrari winning all the time probably caused me more than anything to cease watching every race til 4am. Predictability is never good. I have an interest in cars,especially mini's i'm going to restore one - well someone who knows what they're doing will for me . Anyways thats about all folks.

hello,
i have been a fan of motorsports since i was a growing up in the states. it started for me by watching the indy 500 in the seventies on memorial day. i remember thinking that was the only motor race in the world all year. ignorance is bliss as is said. then cbs began showing the odd nascar race, i was hooked on the action and speed ( pre restrictor plate ) i still have the last talledega 500 on tape some where before the restrictions came in. 210 mph laps in cars with no real down forcw to speak of. :drunk: it wasn't until i was 13 in 1982 that i learned of the existence of f1. i borrowed a copy of a friends ROAD & TRACK magazine and saw a race report. i was hooked, and have been ever since. it was more than rare for an f1 race to be televised on the states at that time. if one ever was it was usually from monaco, and never live or complete in coverage. ABC has a long history of story telling instead of proper coverage.
although they more often got it wrong than right, they struck gold in 1990. as part of the coverage, tape delayed same day coverage (wow, same day :clap: ,) they showed an on board camera clip from Ayrton Senna's pole position lap with commentary from jackie stewart. i still have that on tape, and watch it from time to time. that must be one of the greatest single lap performances i have ever seen. no tc, drive by wire throttle, semi auto gearbox crap. just a simple steering wheel a gear lever a mechanical clutch, and a maestro at the wheel.
up until i moved to denmark, in 1995 i had only seen the odd f1 race live. cbs would show the US gp from detroit as i now recall, but it wasn't with any context to the rest of the season.
then my view of the f1 world changed as every race was shown live.

i have missed alot, but i will do my best to add my two cents worth. here's hoping to see some great racing in the coming months and years.

Hi! :wave:

I' Patrik from Hungary.
(The "LKF" in my nick is a monogram of a hungarian word-joke-name what is my nick in another forum)

I'm a 26 years old journalist and some more. I'm interesting about the technical aspect of F1, so i was and going to read the technical forum almost every day. My favourite driver was Mansell and after him Jean Alesi. I made my final exam at high school the day after he won in Canada, and i was so happy...

I love rallying to, watch the WRC series and our national rally championship. Twice i was a co-driver in a group A Trabant. And i was a photographer in rally, and finally made a webpage for our rally team and for the rally photos and videos (www.rallyalbum.hu).

I'm going to get married in july 12th, and move to Budapest, wich city is just as beautiful as Prague or Wien... if you don't know them, visit one of them! :)

And finally if i'll be lucky i will race in a group N car at the Hungaroring (wich is boring circuit we also know it... oh, there will be some more straights, and less corners this year, we hope it works)

Hi all.

Newbie in this forum, but veteran of F1watching and discussing!

26, male, Italian living in london and working between a gp and the other.

As for the important stuff, I am a hardcore Ferrari fan, and I will do anything to support them. Not a huge MS fan though, but as long as he drives a "rossa" he's good enough for me. Other favs are Kimi, Giancarlo and Nick. No-no drivers? Well Montoya, Villeneuve and DC are my favourite hated ones, but I'll give them credit when they do well (not very often! ;) )

Looking forward to white-hot debates and funny banter!

Hello,

I'm 45, I live near Oslo in Norway. I've been following F1 since the mid-seventies, and attended my first race in 1982 (Briitish GP at Brands Hatch). Since then I've been to Silverstone (3 times), Monaco, Germany (Hockenheim), Austria, Spain (Barcelona) and Imola, and I'm going to Monza this September.

I'm a great fan of everything Italian, including Scuderia Ferrari. My all-time favourite F1 driver is Jean Alesi. :up: :up:

Hello,

I'm from Bermuda, educated in Canada and now living in London, England looking for work. Obviously I'm a big JV fan but I like Button (I just wish he'd stop hammering Jacques ;) ) and Coulthard. If anybody knows a great place to watch GP's in the city I'd be happy to meet a fellow F1 fan as none of my friends are interested in the sport. Cheers

my name is ben and this is my second and last post ever to this board for reasons detailed in the my retirement thread. there will not be another word after this post from me, except to reaffirm my retirement, and occasionally hang shit on various racing drivers i don't like. again, see the my retirement thread for further details. i will, however, accept any emails or posts begging me to change my mind; in fact i demand them. i won't change my mind though. that's final. but it'd be nice if i got posts and emails trying to make me change my mind. even though i won't. but it'd be nice. useless but nice. very nice.
when i'm not retiring/debuting on forums i'm in brisbane australia being a student and writing and stuff. and practising retirement. stuff usually means anything formula one related. or music related. and so forth.
anyway, hi/fare well!

Hey

I might as well introduce myself
I'm a 21 year old Kiwi.....I've been following F1 since 1995 and my favourite driver at the moment would have to be Juan Pablo Montoya followed by Jenson Button, but Hopefully next year Scott Dixon will make the jump after winning the IRL. He already proved himself in the Cart series and next year should see him with at least a test drive :D

But anyway Catfigs you retired you can't just keep coming back without holding a press conference to announce your return from the wilderness :rotfl: :smoking:

Cheers to all and lets have a great season

So long as that bitch MS doesn't drive JPM of the track at suzuka I'll be happy

Hi everyone.. :wave:

It's a little bit late for me to introduce myself but it's better than never i guess.. :eek:

I am 24 and from Istanbul , Turkey..i know many of you are angry about the possibility of GP in Istanbul for several reasons but as you may imagine its an incredible thing for us..

I never have the opportunity to watch a race live because its very very very expensive for me at the moment but i have high hopes to go Monza next year..

I ve been around from early this year but i felt too shy to post a message here..

i started watching F1 regulary after 98 Canada , before that i watched when there was nothing to do and i didn't cheer for anyone but when i saw Schumi walking angrly to DC's pits i decided to be his fan cause he was exciting to watch and his never ending fighting was amusing..( and i 've always found DC's driving boring and for some reason i never fancy JVie..)

Cheers.. :drunk:

Hi all!

I just registered to the forum a few days ago, although I've been quite active to similar ones for years (mainly operated in my native language, Greek that is).

An F1 fan since 1983, born in 1967, resident of Athens, a great fan of Ayrton, whose F1 career I had the luck to watch from day one. The same luck, fortunately, holds for M.Schumacher's and Hakkinen's carrers, who I certainly picked as the two very best of their generation (both being on the same level, far away & above anyone else, but with Michael being just a click better than Mika -mostly due to his ability to be consistently very good in almost every race he has attended so far).

Senna was the main reason McLaren became my favorite team, with Renault and Williams being in my "biased-towards list" too.

After Senna's death :( :confused: I didn't (and don't) fell like supporting any driver(s), decided to stick just to the team instead (McLaren that is). Anyhow, I always believed that teams (and thus the Constructors Championship) are more important than drivers, since the former constitute a much more deep value throughout the years (they come & go much less frequent than drivers do). I realize this is not common logic amongst the fans of the sport, but then again, neither the FIA's, the drivers' and/or the constructors' behavior always conforms with common logic, does it ;)

I was a regular Atlas-F1 reader before it became a pay-site, rating it one of the best F1 resources on the Net. It still is, I guess :up:

PS. How come there are no avatars to pick from, in my CP?

I would like to find out how one goes from "New Member" status to "Member" status? Must you pay a monthly fee to AtlasF1.com?

I've been classified as a "New Member" for over 1 year now.

It's based on quantity of posts, not time. It should change once you hit 30.

Welcome to all new members! :wave:

Hi,
My name is Márcio Panzani.
Even though I've been reading Atlas F1 since it was released I'd never became a member and, for the last years, I've just read the first page & the BB.
Today I filled the forms in to really access the BB as a novice member, probably because I like Guinness & there's a tread regarding F1 beer sponsors... ;)
I hope I can contribute to this forum instead of just reading the treads as I've been doing until now.
Well, that's all, I guess... :o

Hello there

My name is Steve from Manchester, GB.

I have been watching F1 since the middle of the 70's, am 32 years old, and am a big Montoya and Williams fan.

I watch every race even if my girlfriend pulls a face, and intend watching every race I can. (my wedding will NOT be on a race weekend LOL)

I am also a big fan of Johnny Herbert as he's a complete star, nice guy, and has the same surname as me :) . He always looks on the positive side of things.

By day I am a headhunter, by night a poker player and Fun Lovin Criminals fan (just saw them live in Manchester which was brilliant).

I dunno what else to say! LOL
