Gosh, I’m one of the oldest here (32), perhaps only Scarbs is older?!
Single and never getting married!
Watching F1 since childhood. Clearly remember first races from early ‘80s. Like and research whole automotive history.
I’m racing maniac. The chair that I’m sitting on while writing this is actually Sparco racing seat I fixed to conventional rotating & elevating office chair - does wonders to your back if you add small cushion on the b.tt area.
Not able to eat several hours before the race. Nervous as all drivers and team members together. Month before the beginning of the season start having trouble sleeping and eating.
Grew up spending most of my time in my grandfather’s workshop surrounded by many other great craftsmen so I’m also very multipurpose craftsman too, from carpentry and mechanic to electrics and electronics - recently changed/soldered half dozen blown condensers on my PC mainboard – works excellent, was completely dead before. =D>
Always been a good drawer. Nowadays that is shown trough photo editing. Send me your photo if you dare
Never finished college (hated mathematics). Like practical things and dislike conservatives. Exploring and nosing around in constant search for the new things.
Occupied with aerodynamics including the other areas.
Occasionally doing some tuning on classic cars (Webber DCOE and similar stuff). Spend ages in garage and workshop.
HUGE Renault admirer and connoisseur for their inventiveness and creativeness. Like smooth drivers like Prost was.
HATE what was done with Ferrari and F1 in general since early-mid ‘90s.
HATE Schumacher and not considering him as a champion. HATE Bernie, Mossley, Montezemolo, Barrichello & Irvine too. Slowly and surely they are killing the sport.
Blame swift changes after 1993 season for Roland and Senna deaths. All the safety changes were paid by driver’s head or at least health… Gilles Villeneuve, Didier Pironi, Elio de Angelis, Martin Donnely, Roland Ratzenberger, Ayrton Senna. After every of those followed quick safety improvement “hand washing” reaction form Bernie and Mossley. Materials and technology were usually available before but they seam to like having fatality as a motive to increase security! They are never guilty…
Consider many of the circuits outdated when it matters safety. Love Monaco, Spa and Monza (Hockenheim was great too but now sucks). Don’t like expanding of F1 to “exotic” countries simply for Bernie’s welfare.
Like strange concepts like those coming from Lotus (CC), Tyrell, Brabham, Williams, Ligier, Renault… =D>
Always hoping for comeback of turbo-era.
Been marshaling and participated in organizing local races for a decade, later switched to web design for same local racing events. Quit that almost 4 yrs ago.
Following WRC and moto GP too but not as much as F1. Adore Paris-Dakar rally.
Free lancer, web design, photo editing...
