I love F1, in fact I truly believe that Lewis Hamilton and I were switched at birth. Literally. We look 100% similar, I have a British last name, and I love to race.

you gotta be pretty cultured (in america) to enjoy f1. i think it's cool but i don't follow it. around here none of the public networks cover it. at most you'll get 1 minute of it on espn sportscenter. for actual races, you gotta go to the obscure cable channels (and then most are recorded)

so yeah, it doesn't get much love in america. nascar does a little better lol

p.s. i hate golf

I missed my university grad to do security for the Montreal Grand Prix in 1985. I was security in the garage section. I got to meet all the drivers and teams. My girlfriend, wife now, got to sit in one of the Lotus Renault cars (I don't know whether it was Ayton Senna's), and the Osella Alfa Romeo team brought us in their van to the finish line it pit row.

Alain Prost and the McLaren team were by far the nicest.

What a graduation. I'll never forget it.

I was in Melbourne Australia in 2010 when F1 was in town. I wasn't able to stay for race day, but I did get to watch a couple of practice sessions.
