F1 Fanatic - F1
When you get up at 3am to sit in the stair well of your hotel, because its the only place you can get a reliable wi-fi signal to watch an awful quality stream of qualifying.
… when you get up at 5:00 in the morning to watch the entire pre-race show and race itself for the Brazillian Grand Prix before you go to school, even on the day of a Year 11 exam…
when you find yourself yelling, “Hes in the Slipstream!” whenever your behind a car on the highway
..when your friends stop attempting to communicate with you on sunday afternoons from march-november
…when you’re not really looking forward to the new F1 season but still come to this website everyday, several times a day.
When one (at least try to, it’s quite often that I fail) wakes up midnight to watch the races held in the Americas.
…when walking through a bustling corridor you pretend in your head to activate DRS when walking by people blocking the path.
One I do a lot: when you can link every conversion to F1 in some manner – for example, I linked a discussion about deserts to Kimi Räikkönen (deserts > ice cream > Räikkönen).
You know you’re an F1 fanatic when you try to undercut someone when walking up stairs.
Something I do a lot: Walk down the pathway, slipstream the person ahead and suddenly pass by them and cut across in front of them as if stating the position as yours!
Another thing I do: Look at this website at least 3 times a day.
When there is a code at work that ends in GRO and you keep thinking of Romain Grosjean and BUT-GRO-PER.
A) you take the racing line everywhere you go. ie. at school on the b block stairs and on the footpath
B) when somebody says DC or JA, you instantly think of David Coulthard and James Allen.
+C) When you are thinking of footage that would perfectly match a song for a F1 television intro.
D) People approach you knowing you are a diehard F1 and McLaren fan to talk F1 and cars!
