Sheiban Shakeri has been an avid fan of Formula 1 and the Red Bull Air Race. Since he was a child, he always had a fascination with race cars and airplanes, "so it's natural that I would get into the sporting aspect of it."
In 2008, Shakeri had the opportunity to cover a new sport, the Red Bull Air Race, and since then, he hasn't looked back on it. He has been invited to attend three races so far - Detroit 2008, Abu Dhabi 2009, and Windsor 2009 - and has become a well-known member of the air racing community.
Formerly the Community Leader of Formula 1, Shakeri has decided to move on and help the Red Bull Air Race grow by exclusively covering this new sport. Please help by visiting the section and putting in your views and comments!

Just returned from China/UAE, Dubai was amazing, made a quick trip to Abu Dhabi to look at the track. Fantastic trip.
Noticed your giving up your F1 community leader role. You've done a sterling job, sad to see you go. The RBAR section is lucky to have you, and will only get better as you focus your attention on it. I will continue to read your RBAR articles.

Hello pls read my second part of Funniest soccer quotes ever..i think you read the first one so here is the second..
I love your Air Race articles! I went to the Detroit event last year and was planning on writing an article for my own site but never got around to it. I plan on going again this year to the Windsor race. Very cool that you got to go last year and meet the pilots!
Ahh! Your article about Hamilton being penalized 5 places was prophetic! Please dont curse him again! :(
