I actually have never really watched F1 alone at home. I’m always watching out in the pub with mates; or just with the normal crowd. There’s something about the surroundings – being immersed with all F1 fans, that really gets to me.
And it all came together in Abu Dhabi 2010 – a mate and I were rooting for Vettel; and when we reached the pub half the place was wearing McLaren shirts, half were in red, and two Aussie blokes were at the bar. The whole room went silent as Vettel crossed the line, and they all waited on where Alonso would finish. Then they all never spoke up again; while my mate and I burst screaming.
