He was one of my favorites, back when I was a kid and first became aware of Formula 1. Unfortunately I picked a number of heroes who ended up dying too soon, such as my other favorite Ronnie Peterson, Elio de Angelis and then Ayrton Senna. Hoping I’m not a jinx.

I remember this as well. I’d only started paying attention to F1 mostly through those little 30 second clips on Wide World of Sports; this was SO much more exciting than Indy cars! And Jackie Stewart was probably the single most informative F1 driver to have ever lived. I think it was the 1970 Monaco GP that was the Read more

I was a kid in grammar school when this happened, but I remember very clearly reading about Jochen Rindt’s in the newspaper that Labor Day Sunday of 1970. It was a real shock, I had the intense fandom for racing that you only have when you’re a kid. F1 wasn’t covered much on TV in those days, but there had been a Read more

Thanks for triggering the memories F1 heroes didn’t last long when I was a kid.

As a Canadian, I would like to thank you for taking the quarantine seriously. I’m not going to lie, the fact that Americans can fly or drive in at all still makes me uneasy. I understand your desire to be with family, but I think I can speak for many Canadians when I say I would prefer you didn’t come at all. That Read more

I have sent this to several people already! Thanks for writing this so thoroughly, and good luck throughout your quarantine. I do think they need to figure out a better plan-surely some testing could chop some of that time off-but who am I to say? Read more

Stay safe, I’m glad to see you were mostly prepared. At least one side of the border is taking things seriously.
 
Since you have nothing but time on your hands I fully expect a personalized response to every post in this thread, plus 15,000 - 20,000 word articles three times a day between now and the 8th, thanks!

On first impression, this seems like less of a gimmick than NASCAR’s stages, etc.

Holy crap, did you see Hamilton’s lap?  That was a masterpiece!  I don’t care where Ferrari ends up, that was one amazing lap!  I know the car’s good, but holy shit, that was beautiful.

Fellow journalist here. It’s kind of astounding, the amount of content you produce in what seems to be a day. And not throw away content either. Good job!

I don’t think it’s too much to ask for a guy to not act like a complete fucking goon around a woman, regardless of what she has chosen/chooses to do. A little professionalism is warranted. They were talking about a race. She wasn’t prancing around in a bikini. Volunteering your fetish to someone who clearly found the Read more
