  • Jericoke: For newcomers to GPWizard, make sure you check out the live chat during the race!  It's the best way to turn a dull race into a great time, and the cherry on top of a great race!  (I won't be able to attend Aussie though)

Welcome Chris.

Time flies by - I used to say 30 years a fan, and then one day a friend said, "You are 60 years old. l we used to discuss F1 each month when the magazines would come out on the news stands. We were only 15 years old then."   I had to laugh.
Life is short - live each day to the fullest.

My 7 or 8 times great Grandfather, Thomas Emerson, was born in Bishop's Stortford before emigrating to America. Through him I am distantly related to Ralph Waldo Emerson and Mark Twain.

How true, J. Clark! The years fly but passion stays :)

Recently, Dad asked me what I remembered of the Mansell era. I was a bit surprised since the first race I remember deliberately sitting down to watch was France 1993. He told me that he'd sat me in front of the TV when the races started for several years before that, and I'd appeared to enjoy it, so he assumed I'd been a F1 supporter since infancy. (I'm sure I was, but I didn't process what I was seeing as F1, or even sport - it was interesting multi-coloured stuff on the screen back then...)
