My earliest memory of F1 was Senna in 1994, I was 7 at the time, and I had been watching F1 before this date because I remember watching it with my Dad. I’m sure I started maybe in 1993, but nothing shocked my memory as much as 1994.
I was a big fan of Williams and Sauber, my favourite F1 memorabilia being a red Williams cap, and blue Red Bull Sauber cap.
I pretty much watched most of the races during the 90s and grew up with the sport. My enthusiasm fell off during the early 2000s and I’d then watch the occasional race. I watched most of the races from 2005 – 2008, and then in 2009 I really got into the sport. I bought a copy of the BBC’s F1 season review, and I was hooked. I then preceded to watch every session since.
I, much like Superted, have been going through old season reviews and reliving my childhood memories of the 90s.
Its fascinating to hear your first memories dsob, I’d love to hear some more of our older F1 Fanatic generation here.
