A first for F1Fanatic.co.uk

??Lewis Hamilton: The Full Story?? - F1Fanatic.co.uk blurb

I’ve just finished reading Alan Henry’s new book “The Top 100 F1 Drivers of All Time” – I’ll be posting the review as usual on Sunday. But I got a pleasant surprise when I flipped through the back pages and found the publishers had printed a portion of my review of Mark Hughes’ “Lewis Hamilton: The Full Story” as an endorsement.

This is the first time one of my book review has been quoted by a publisher and I’m delighted they are starting to get noticed. Seeing ‘F1Fanatic.co.uk’ on the page next to the Sunday Times, Autosport and The Observer certainly put a grin on my face.

  1. Keith,

    I thing that Mark is reading your stuffs…

  2. That would be cool – he’s not joined the F1Fanatic Facebook Group yet though, as far as I can tell…

  3. Keith,

    I means Mark Hughes…


  4. Seeing ‘F1Fanatic.co.uk’ on the page next to the Sunday Times, Autosport and The Observer certainly put a grin on my face.

    I notice you didn’t include James Allen in that list. ;)

  5. Well done, Keith – thoroughly deserved and an early hint that the publishing world is beginning to take note of the net.

  6. I notice you didn’t include James Allen in that list. ;)

    …or The Independent on Sunday, Daily Telegraph, Motorsport, Autocar or Top Gear!

    Actually I didn’t mention Allen because his was the only name above F1Fanatic.co.uk :-(

  7. Well done Keith – if only certain others made note of your comments and ours as well – having them do anything though might be too much though

  8. You and the site deserve the recognition – there’s basically only 4 motorsports websites I visit every day without fail, and this is one of them – it’s a terrific site.

  9. Well done. I’m glad I found your site. There’s something good on it every day.

  10. I agree with all the things that the other people said, even if one of your videos managed to crash my computer – can’t have everything though can you?
    Anyway good work.

  11. Don’t worry Becken I am still reading Keith’s work as well : )

    Good on ya Keith! Well done mate. I reckon by season 2012 you will have a paddock media superpass for all races and have an opinion peice in each months Autosport.

  12. Thanks everyone for your very kind compliments I promise I won’t my new found stardom go to my head…

  13. Be careful Keith. You don’t want to end up like Amy Winehouse crying for Lewis Hamilton at the Grammys…

  14. Well…between this and the Google search for Max Mosley (10 videos Max Mosley should see) that lists in the top ten,I would say that F1fanatic is getting much deserved recognition.

    Congrats Keith!

  15. Congratulations, Keith! Clearly some sections of the insider F1 community are beginning to notice the quality internet media outlets :)

    I notice they haven’t put your quote into its full context, but that’s probably because if the general public knew that you thought all of the Lewis Hamilton biographies had significant weaknesses, the book’s sales wouldn’t be quite so good…

  16. great job Keith- hope the web gets noticed more in the future!!!

  17. Congratulations Keith, well done!

  18. Well done, Keith! Keep it up! Who knows, there may be an F1 insider or two going through this site from time to time. :)

  19. Congratulations Keith!

    F1Fanatic is one of the few websites I make sure to visit everyday atleast once. Good luck and I hope this website climbs even higher :)

  20. Way to go Keith..

    I just love this site..some of the features are really awesome..the feature on the tracks was really cool..cant wait for the season to start..15 days to go!!

  21. Keith, best wishes on the recognition the website has just achieved- it speaks tremendously to your credibility in the F1 industry to be quoted in such a manner. While I can still be considered a newcomer here, I can certainly understand how the site has developed such an excellent reputation- the setting here is one of good spirits where F1 fans of all backgrounds, nationalities and levils of experience with the sport can discuss F1 as sportsmen and friends. Keep up the great work!!

    Also, your coverage of F1 in the United States, and apparent support for getting the USGP back in some capcity is greatly appreciated by all of us on this side of the Atlantic- thanks again!

  22. Congratulations Keith!

    You have proved to many people (like me), there is more things in F1 besides drivers and cars. There is also other stuff, like the books you have reviewed here, which deserves to be known by us.

  23. Congratulations.

    Quoted ahead of Autosport. Now that is something worth advertising.

    Second to James Allen though. I won’t tell anyone if you don’t.

    Well done.

  24. Congratulations Keith!

    Good luck with the upcoming season. Perhaps the worst that can happen with all this recognition, and the liveblogging during the races, is that you have to buy even more servers!

  25. congratulations keith.. good job

  26. Well done Keith, it’s a great website and should be noted. Keeps my interest up during the winter months. Can’t wait till 16th March!!
