From as long as I can remember, I’ve been a fan of the intensity and passion that Formula 1 brings to the screen. During Formula 1 season, I always look forward to the race build-up which starts on Friday and finishes on Sunday. It will be something that I will live to love for the rest of my life!
Of course, I had to find out about the sport in some way. Once upon a time, I couldn’t go to Google and type ‘cool sports that I might like’ (not like people do that anyway) but that’s beside the point. I discovered the amazing sport through my parents. They have always shared their interest in Formula 1 with me. Before I knew it, I was explaining the meaning of DRS zone, analysing stats and explaining other technical stuff to my mum! Formula 1 is truly a ‘gut-gripping’ sport.
However, I don’t really share my love of Formula 1 with any of my friends. For some reason, it’s not popular with most kids. Some of my friends don’t even like sports at all! That has never stopped my drive to get to the weekend, switch on the TV, and watch my favourite driver, Lewis Hamilton compete with the other drivers for points and top spots.
From funny jokes to hilarious commentators, I can tell you without a doubt that this sport is far from boring! “Oh, the races are so predictable,” some people might say. Well, yes, until the leader’s car blows up and has to be taken off the track by a crane the same size as some egos! A safety car rolls up, pulling all the cars together, and before you know it, PING-PONG and the race is on! It is pure chaos. Tyres flying off and getting punctured, bits of carbon fibre flying all over the place, races screeching to an abrupt end as car engineers hold their heads in shock or awe! Can I tell you something? Formula 1 races are two planets away from predictable!
