Share your ideas for F1 Fanatic

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

I’m trying out a new feature on F1 Fanatic that allow readers to share and vote on different ideas for articles.

On the side bar to the right of this text you should see a box with the title “Suggest an article for F1 Fanatic.” Here you can post your ideas for articles, polls or anything else you’d like to see on the site.

I’m going to run it for a couple of weeks to see how well it works. Please leave any feedback you have on the system below.

You can still suggest ideas the old-fashioned ways as well – either via the contact form or the F1 Fanatic Facebook Group. If you want to submit an article of your own you can find information on writing a guest post here.

  1. I stumbled across this site over the winter and I have to say, it gets better all the time. This is already one of my top F1 sites.

    Not to kiss your ass or anything :P

    Keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks Pete!

  3. To me,F1 Fanatic is a very excellent F1 web,throught it I can know more about Inside F1. But I hope you can add more information about the car technique and stories behind F1.By the way,sometimes I can’t see the Liveblog when the practices begin. Waiting your improvement!

  4. Without wishing to critisise this site, I think it’s getting a bit too high-brow. So, with Alan Henry’s top 100 F1 drivers in mind, how about the top 100 F1 W.A.G.s????? ……..I guess thats a no then…

  5. A hundred? You set the bar high Andy…

    Tommy can you drop me an email via the contact form describing what browser you’re using and what problem you’re having and I’ll look into it.

  6. One hundred shouldn’t be too hard, Keith. David Coulthard’s tally alone should account for 10%.

  7. I want to suggest an article but cant see the “Suggest an article for F1 Fanatic.” bit at the side :S

  8. Really? It’s underneath the ‘Special features’ menu.

  9. Ah found it i was looking in the box! Thanks :)

  10. As many videos as you can legally lay your hands on Keith, apart from that I love this website.
    Keep up the good work….

  11. Since this site is well respected and has a solid base of pretty knowledgable fans, is there any scope for getting a bit of a campaign together to end these ridiculous rules on f1 videos? Any videos in blog posts seem to last less than 24hrs and its a shame, as they make for great posts.

    I still can’t get over the irony that we’re all sat here simply wanting to celebrate and promote our sport but Bernie won’t let us. He should be grateful, not against us.

    Any chance of a change of stance after the switch to BBC or will the same rules apply?

  12. Three ideas already I see! Don’t forget you can vote on which ones you like.

    Pete I really can’t see the rules on F1 videos changing but I do wonder if FOM are starting to give up on policing it – it’s getting easier and easier to find F1 videos online. Perhaps they’re even grudgingly accepting that it’s no bad thing and certainly not a threat to their business model?

    how about an article or too based on the rise and fall line?? about drivers who were tipped for greatness but never really delivered. you can then maybe look into what reasons prevented them from fulfilling potential. etc etc

    just and idea

  14. I like that, sChUmAcHeRtHeGrEaTeStEvEr. Plenty of material. Just the other day I was reading about Jan Magnussen, and thinking about Heinz Harry at Williams in ’97.

    exactly it was widley rumoured that frentzen was quicker than schumacher

  16. Ah, Jan Magnussen… now there IS an interesting case. Anyone who remembers the 1994 British F3 season will wonder how he could possible have failed to make it in Formula 1 – 14 wins from 18 starts, one more than Senna in his famous 1983 campaign. And all achieved with a devastating turn of pace and calm precision. Why he didn’t make it would indeed make a very interesting piece indeed – it would highlight just how very, very talented, committed, dedicated and fortunate you have to be to make the grade in Formula 1. An interesting counterpoint story would perhaps be to wonder just how, for example, Ralf Schumacher enjoyed such a long and lucrative career in the top flight when talents such as Magnusseen have failed to make it through. There’s always a reason for these things – why didn’t Chris Amon win a GP? Why didn’t Juan Montoya win a world title? And so on…

  17. My memory may fail me here, but I’m sure I recall Jackie Stewart (during the documentary about his team) suggesting that Magnussen had some discipline issues; smoking etc. There’s no reason why this should really affect anything (Kimi ‘party on dude!’ Raikonnen anyone?) but he certainly failed to flourish at Stewart.

    Maybe he just ran out of steam?

  18. This site is great for any motorsport and especially F1 fan , I was writing occasionally on some S/African (where I’m from) sites , unfortunately most stories end up in political or racial issues , which is sad , whereas here persons writing reflect a genuine interest in F1 and respect each others views.
    George , on your story of Jan Magnussen , Montoya etc. I guess there are many more who have under achieved in relation to their talent in F1 , and then there are some who get a drive and maybe should not have. I’m watching Nico Rosberg at present , while he is not a bad driver at all , I can’t say he is the superstar that some have tried to make him out to be , and can’t help thinking he is in F1 partly because of his famous father. It seems at the moment Nakajima is just as quick as he is , we will wait and see what happens.
