I've been following Formula One since:

Technically, age five or six. I say 'technically' because the first race I remember watching was the 1987 Monaco Grand Prix, and I very clearly remember rooting against Ayrton Senna (for a variety of reasons known only to five-year-olds). Also, I purchased F1 World Grand Prix for the N64 back in the 90's, so I knew all the drivers even though I wasn't able to watch races. It wasn't until 2004 that I actually started following F1 on a full-time basis, reading up on the history and, eventually, attending races. Since then it's pretty much been a love affair.

My favorite team/driver is:

Driver: Fernando Alonso. Team: no affiliation, but I will always root for the little guys (Sauber, Force India, Haas, etc) to punch above their weight. I'm also very big on Alexander Rossi and will root for Daniel Ricciardo any day.

Introduction

There are only two things in this world for which I will wake up at (or before) dawn: my toddler, and F1.
