About

I was born in San Fran CA in 1964 and moved to England in the early 70,s. I became a F1 fan in 1975 watching Niki Lauda in the 312T become World Champion. Then in 1976 watched in horror as he wrecked his T2 in Germany. That was a championship race to watch in 1976. Since 1976 I have been a lifelong F1 fan.

I came back to the US in the early 80's and really had a hard time finding any news coverage of F1 outside of ABC Wide World of Sports Monaco coverage. Still I hung on and God bless the NASCAR channel ,I mean the SPEED Channel, for picking up some of the F1 coverage.

I couldn't handle watching NASCRAP after Earnhardt Sr. was killed. It seems that NASCAR is full of corporate pretty boys now and is just unbearable to watch.

I am married 17 years now with 4 girls and a wife that realise every other weekend I keep strange hours logging into the F1 live timing if no "live coverage is available" to get my fix of F1. I would have to say sitting at my PC with a Ferrari flag on the wall in front of me and a blood red ASUS PC case with a Ferrari badge on it that I am a Tifosi of Scuderia Ferrari.

    I hate to say it, but I think the tyre issue is more of a problem for Massa. Alonso seems to be affected by it in qualifying but come race time he has been able to make up the ground he lost as a result. Massa has really struggled with keeping his tyres warm enough and he loses so much confidence when he lacks his ideal level of grip. the softer they are the more comfortable he feels but he needs to step it up if he is hoping to race aggressively enough to overtake in the upcoming races. I agree that Red Bull and McLaren are ahead of Ferrari but I also think that the races coming up in Europe are going to be warmer which will hopefully help out with the tyre heat issue. I think the Ferrari's have been ok as far as degredation is concerned. So yea, I think both Alonso and Massa will be stronger in the European leg but they have a good bit of work ahead of them if they want to catch up and take control!
