Hello F1 world!

by F1Fan on June 6, 2009

Welcome to this brand new site, as you can see it doesn’t have much going for it yet. My goal is to make this into the best damn Formula One fan centric site on the web with a concentration on the many US Fans.

If you are reading this my guess is that you are interested in Formula One, and maybe looking for current information on this season, the drivers, teams results and events, even information on the potential new F1 teams for 2010 including the two new US based teams that have currently filed.

This is an exciting time in F1, this season the usual powerhouses of Ferrari and McLaren have been eclipsed by Brawn (formaly Honda) and Red Bull, while Ferrari are improving race by race McLaren continue to struggle.

Many proposed changes for the 2010 season are currently being discussed and negotiated between the teams  and the FIA which could change the whole F1 landscape, and deadlines for theses decisions are rapidly approaching. 

I need your Help

As an early visitor you can help set the direction and content of this site, let me know what you what to see, I have a bunch of ideas but as the old adage goes many minds are better than one.

Turkish Grand Prix This Weekend

The Turkish Gran Prix is shaping up to be a good race with Red Bull and Brawn quicker than the other teams in qualifying. A closely fought final qualifying session resulted a blisteringly fast Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull) being on pole position just beating out Jenson Button (Brawn) and Rubens Barrichello (Brawn) third with Mark Webber (Red Bull) alongside on the second row. It continues to look like Brawn and Red Bull are the  teams to beat this season. Only one second difference in lap time covers the top ten cars the surprising thing is that McLaren isn’t even in the top ten, in fact Lewis Hamilton last years champion and McLarens #1 driver was eliminated in the first qualifying session. Unlike Monaco where Lewis was eliminated because he put his car into the armco this time it was just the pace of his car that was not up to snuff. McLaren are really having a tough time improving their car this year.

Turkish Gran Prix Viewing Hint

For those of you that currently record  F1 on the Speed channel using a DVR (like me) make sure that your DVR is set to record the Turkish Grand Prix on FOX channel, Speed has only carried Practice and Qualifying, this weekend Fox will be carrying the actual race.

Enjoy the Race!!!!

Istanbul would be an incredible place to go to an F1 race.They have a website, http://www.turkeygrandprix.com/. You can even book a helicopter to take you to the race from your hotel. I’m thinking this being a Formula One racing fan may be a bit outside my budget, lol.

I’m thinking Button.

You called it – Button drove a flawless race. He has now won 6 out of the first seven races.
