Hi. I’m Matt and I’m a physics PhD student studying at the University of Warwick. I’ve been a follower of F1 since the mid 90′s when I was introduced to it by my dad. I’ve only really been a hardcore fan since a couple of years ago though. Now, I try and watch every session if I can, and keep up with all the latest news via my endless list of RSS feeds (including F1 Fanatic, of course; thanks for the great site, Keith).
I’ll be going to my first Grand Prix at Silverstone this year (I can’t wait!). I’m looking forward to the forum threads discussing the British Grand Prix so that I can make the most of the weekend.
Oh, and I’m a Hamilton fan, but I’m also supporting Kovalainen and Petrov.
Cheery is one thing, but Heikki takes it to a whole new level!
On a more serious note, he does seem a lot more comfortable at Lotus. Whatever the reason, it seemed like he was never really happy at McLaren and it tended to show in his race performances. I would agree that his qualifying pace has tended to be better than his race pace in the past, but it will be interesting to see how far he can go with this Lotus team now that he has the motivation to really push himself.
