I have loved F1 races since I have been a little boy. On the weekends I used to watch the races with my father and brother. We often ate crisps or salami and it was always a fun part of the day. I remember that my dad often fell a sleep during the middle of the race, since it was often in the afternoon and after our late lunch. He would wake up just for the end. I think it is a great sport. And if you follow the entire season it is very entertaining and has quite a bit of suspense at the end
The Best F1 driver
I have always been a big fan of Micheal Schumacher and I think that he is the second best ever F1 driver. I was sad when he announced that he was going to retire from F1. And I was really enthousiastic when I heard he decided a few years later to join the fun again! Unfortunately he hasn’t beeing performing that good. Either he has lost it or has gotten too old or there are simply better drivers around. I personnaly think he should not have come back in the first place. Because quitting while your ahead is never the same as quiting. The best F1 driver in our history would naturelly be: Ayrton Senna. Who sadly died during a race. He will always remain a symbol and icon in this motorsport.
Whenever an accident happens it always looks very spectacular. This is due to the great speed and lightness of the cars. And I am always amazed that the pilots often step out without any injury what so ever. Well, lets hope it will stay that way.
I love collecting and buy F1 related items with autographs. I buy them on Ebay or if I get lucky get one when I assist one the races. I have several signed Caps, photos and loads of F1 minature replicas which I have standing on the wall of my office at home. I have also recently bought a very expensive but great F1 remote controlled replica. It looks just like the real thing and I have had a lot of fun playing with it. All you need is a big flat space, such as a empty car park on sunday and there you go! I find it great fun, I have several friends who have bought similar remote controlled cars, and we have fun racing each other. And just in the real thing we have to avoid crashes, because these cars are very fragile and cost a fortune.
