I'm Ross, currently studying English and French at A Level, hoping to go onto university this year to study Journalism.

I'm a long-time Formula 1 fan, and will support Ferrari - even if I have to try not to be biased in my writings(!) - until the day I die. I also follow MotoGP, and am becoming more and more involved in the British Touring Car Championship.

I'm a bit too opinionated at times, I know, so I try to keep pretty quiet, so don't expect me to religiously submit new articles, I just like to moan about things as they come up! Hopefully you'll enjoy reading my pieces as much as I enjoy creating them!

Oh, before I forget, I'd love it if you could check out my website at, it's just a little project me and a friend have been working on. It's mainly based around motorsport, including latest news, but you can chat about anything on our forums! Thanks!

    I'm enjoying the highs and lows of the Grand Prix weekends. Friday always begins with some big surprise that a team have magically pushed themselves to the top of the pecking-order in practice. Saturday morning is then media-morning, where this super-fast team dismisses its dominance. By Saturday night and after qualifying, the press are beginning to doubt the team's supremacy, and Sunday we see the team right at the back again and everybody has forgotten about them. It's McLaren's turn this weekend, so, being Friday evening, there is big hype that they are back to their winning ways. Interesting.

    We probably didn't need the rain in Malaysia, it was always going to be a good race. Then once the heavens did open, it just added some spice to what was already an enthralling afternoon. I'd have liked to have kept the downpour in reserve for a processional race such as in Spain or Valencia, but I'll take what we got!

    So Ferrari have finally knocked Williams from their practice stranglehold - that's encouraging for the Italian team. I would be cautious however, that Brawn and Williams were relatively further down the timesheets that what would be expected, which suggests that they were perhaps sand-bagging, or running wetter setups. Tomorrow should be interesting...

    Lewis penalised again? Seriously? The FIA needn't worry about F1's dissolving level of trust, they are doing a nice enough job of making a mockery of the sport themselves. When has a lie ever influenced a race result? I mean, really.
