Hello, my name’s Keith and I run F1 Fanatic.
And you are?…9th June 2010, 11:54 at 11:54 am #134241
My name is Christian and I have been reading F1 Fanatic for a couple of years now.
I have been following F1 since I was about 8 which means 32 years!!!
My first race attended was 1992 in Portugal. I believe that was the race that Mansell secured his world championship.
My wife and I normally attend the British Grand Prix but unfortunatly won’t be there this year as we have bought a new house which is eating all our cash!! Still there is always next year.

I’m Callum, will be 24 next week, live in Melbourne, originally a country boy (Traralgon), currently in my last year of my Bachelor of Commerce (accounting & management majors).
I’ve only been following F1 fanatically for the last 6 or so years, have been a casual observer since I can remember (I was at practice for the Aus GP in 1991 at age 5).9th June 2010, 12:09 at 12:09 pm #134243
I’m Jeff. Been following Formula 1 regularly since 1956, after seeing my first F1 race live at Silverstone.
Darn nice to see the Forum back, Keith. I knew you could do it!9th June 2010, 12:17 at 12:17 pm #134244
Hi, I’m Dougie (been known previously on here as such) from Edinburgh, Scotland, and have been reading F1Fanatic for a few years now.
Been watching F1 since the very early 80’s, watched through the entire Mansell Mania & the Great Senna period, and Schumacher & Ferraris dominance. Never been yet to a race, just can’t justify the cost, but did visit MotoGP in Barcelona last year (2009) and it was awesome. So may well start saving for a Monaco “once in a lifetime” trip for me and my wee boy when he’s old enough (he’s only 3), with a taster or two at Silverstone beforehand.9th June 2010, 12:22 at 12:22 pm #134245
Names Ed and i mostly lurk here rather than post.
Well done Keith for getting the forum sorted!
Looking forward to this weekends race!9th June 2010, 12:30 at 12:30 pm #134246
Hi, I’m Dunc. I’ve been reading the forums for a couple of years now and following F1 for as long as I can remember (since the 80’s). I’ll be going to Silverstone for the first time this year. Can’t wait!9th June 2010, 12:31 at 12:31 pm #134247
Hello again everyone :)
I’m Rachel (also known as ‘vettelfan’ on here) Only 18 and still relatively new to F1. Started watching in late ’06, but didn’t become obsessive about it until mid-way through 2007. I’ll be attending my first GP this year, at Silverstone, and I actually can’t wait for it :D9th June 2010, 12:34 at 12:34 pm #134248

Hi I’m Matt.
Im 16 from Adelaide, Australia.
Ive been only been following motorsport since 2007 and F1 since 2008 and have been visiting F1 Fanatic for just over a year. Im also hoping to attend my first GP next year in Melbourne.
I plan on studying Mechanical Engineering when I finish school which will hopefully (fingers crossed!) lead me to a job somewhere involved in motorsport.
Its great to have the forum back Keith :)9th June 2010, 12:50 at 12:50 pm #134250
My Name is Bastiaan and i have been following F1 since 93. Discovered F1Fanatic and its great forums last year and i found the courage to start posting comments during testing this year.
Great to have the forum back, i loved the livery-forums running in the off season as well as all the technical discussions.
I have an engineers degree, but actually i do packaging, logistics and transport as a hobby/getting rich sceme (It would be great to have my own yacht at Valencia, AbuDhabi or Monaco somewhere in the future).
I am from the Netherlands, studied in Germany for 2 years and currently live right in the centre of Europe in the Czech Republic.9th June 2010, 12:59 at 12:59 pm #134251
I’m Adam from the Isle of Man and go to uni in Edinburgh where I’m heavily ivolved with the Edinburgh University Motor Sport Club. Been watching F1 since I was about 5 and also follow other forms of motor racing not least the magnificent Isle of Man TT.
Followed F1Fanatic for a year or so now, and its great to see the best F1 forum on the web is back9th June 2010, 13:04 at 1:04 pm #134252
My name is Ciaran.I’m 13,live in Ireland.
I became a fanatic really around the end of 2006 when Schumacher retired.I sometimes would watch it with my brother when I was younger.
I started on F1 Fanatic in September of last year and this is my second time introducing myself.
I am a Felipe Massa fan but actually I have a favourite driver from every team.9th June 2010, 13:10 at 1:10 pm #134253
I’m Alex, I’m a 25-year-old 2D and 3D Graphic Artist from hertfordshire, England, now living just over the border in Bedfordshire.
I’ve been an F1 Fanatic since around 1994, and I found this website a couple of years back whilst searching for what the new Donington F1 circuit layout might look like.
I don’t have any favourites in general, although I usually support the British drivers and teams, and am always rooting for the underdog, so Panis winning in ’96, and Vettel in the Toro Rosso a couple of years ago were brilliant. I am, however, an avid Ferrari hater.
Only ever been to 1 Grand Prix, the British round in 2004, but I am finally going again this year. other than that, I’ve been to a handful of race meetings, mostly BTCC and British F3. I did get to see the GT1 Championship at the new Silverstone last month, which was brilliant, if a tad wet.
Away from F1, I enjoy playing video games (far too much), drawing, listening to a bit of music, gazing up at the stars through my telescope, and seeing my friends as much as possible.9th June 2010, 13:26 at 1:26 pm #134254
I’m Ewan, also known as either E.T. or flamer92, from Edinburgh. I’ve been interested in F1 for as long as I remember but only started watching the races in 2008. I’ve always been a Ferrari fan, although I also like Red Bull and Force India. Especially after having work experience with Force India in June last year. I’ve never been to a Grand Prix although it would be a dream come true to one day go to Monza for the Italian Grand Prix.
