Welcome to F1Fanatic.co.uk

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Around this time of year with the season about to start I get a lot of visits from people who are new to the site.

To those of you who have started reading F1Fanatic.co.uk recently I wanted to say hello, introduce you to the site, and point you in the direction of some of the best stuff!

What is F1Fanatic.co.uk?

F1Fanatic is a blog for F1 fans run by me, Keith, with occasional contributions from other writers as well.

The site is regularly updated with a variety of articles including comment on Formula 1 news, F1 videos, pictures and other cool stuff on the web. There’s also round-ups of F1 coverage in the news and on blogs and reviews of Formula 1 books and other products.

Every race weekend there are previews, coverage of practice, qualifying and the race, stats analysis and – new for 2008 – live discussion of qualifying and the race.

A quick tour

The top menu gives you links to pretty much everything on the site, from details on the latest F1 season, to videos, to F1 statistics.

The two menus on the right list some of the most recent and most popular articles – including comments people are making on the site right now. For technical reasons the ‘All time’ most popular articles list is not entirely up to date. Here is an accurate list of the top ten posts on F1Fanatic.co.uk.

At the bottom you’ll find direct links to driver biographies, team information, and every race on the F1 calendar.

There are also links to the various ways you can interact with F1 Fanatic – through the F1Fanatic Facebook Group, Twitter, Google Calendar, Youtube, Flickr and good old fashioned email.

One last thing – at the bottom of each article you’ll find a link titled ‘Share This’. It allows you to quickly share F1Fanatic articles on popular social bookmarking sites likes Facebook, Digg, StumbleUpon, Del.icio.us and others.

Get the latest from F1 Fanatic

There are two ways you can keep up-to-date with the latest content on the site.

You can sign up for a free daily email which includes links to all the articles added each day. Or you can subscribe to the F1 Fanatic RSS feed.

Either way it’s free and I won’t go spamming you or giving your details away to other people.
