I started watching in 2001 when I was 3 because my dad used to watch it. I didn’t really get the concept of it because I was too young. I just liked to watch every race and watch the Saubers and Jaguars, which I liked because of their colours. I started watching F1 more seriously in 2004, telling my dad to wake me up at 3am to watch the Australian Grand Prix.
I’ve been addicted to F1 since. All I can do is thank my dad for getting me into F1. I still remember that glorious moment in Suzuka 2006 when the ads just came on..
“Dad, I swear I just saw Schumachers car starting to smoke there!”
“Nah, Ferrari are always really reliable, don’t get your hopes up!”
Then a few minutes later the race resumed and we all saw the Ferrari up in smoke… lol :D
