I was bitten by the F1 bug from an early age and often suffer from F1 fever and Motorsport sweats. It’s a condition that has no cure…if you have petrol coursing through your veins as do I, you will understand.
My love of motor racing stems from early childhood memories with my father, sitting to watch every Grand Prix on a small black and white television set. Back then, some of the races were broadcast on radio waves as well and we often had both radio and TV going. Having grown up with my father being a mechanic, I have been around cars and motorcycles all my life. My father’s ties to F1 were through a supplier of electronics and ignition systems to at least one of the teams. He too had been bitten by the F1 bug and his love and passion for the sport was passed on to me. Over the years, I have been very fortunate to have met several F1 personalities and also to have made several friends in the sport and supporting industries.
