    A fan since 1992.
    That was first F1 TV broadcast in USSR back in May 1992, Round 5, Spain GP.

    When i was watching I knew nothing. Choose Senna to follow as favourite after 20 min of watching. I did't knew he was a legend :)

    Later after he crashed i switched to Hakkinen, then to Kimi Raikkonen till today.

    Been at Turkey GP one time back in 2007. Wanted to enter again. But current engine sounds are terrible. Visiting GP without a proper sound is a waste of money in my opinion. :)

    Wow... 1992 was the first broadcast? Great first pick with "SENNA" but 1994 was a terrible year for the sport, great loss.

    The sounds are just plain fucking brilliant...
    The gear changes sometimes bring tears to my eyes....oh the memories.

    I started watching from birth because my father loved it. Over the years I thought it was boring how these cars just raced around and around for hundreds of km's.

    I eventually fell in love with the sport in and around 1985 and I enjoyed staying up all hours of the night/morning watching and listening...zoooooooom

    Due to Australian time differences it meant staying up way past midnight and skipping many school days just to catch up on sleep :)

    Australian F1 2000 was the last time I actually followed the sport as the kids started popping out shortly after and for some strange reason the next few years I just couldn't bring myself to stay up past midnight.

    The 2000 Australian Grand Prix (officially known as the LXV Qantas Australian Grand Prix) was a Formula One motor race held on 12 March 2000 at the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit, Melbourne. It was the first race of the 2000 Formula One season. The race, contested over 58 laps, was won by Michael Schumacher for the Ferrari team after starting from third position. Schumacher's new teammate for the 2000 season, Rubens Barrichello finished second in the other Ferrari, with Ralf Schumacher third for BMW-Williams.

    I left the sport on a big high...

    But I'm thinking of making a comeback in 2016 by taking the wife to melbourne to watch the opening race of the season. Fingers crossed.

      Ayrton Senna was a true legend. I remember the sad day in 1994, been watching it Live on TV. Terrible day for sport. I wouldn't think something like that can happen. I am Ferrari guy, soo Schumacher, Alonso, Kimi, Massa, Vettel are my horses from Maranello. :)

      Still to say, I am huge fan of Moto GP. My father took me to circuit for my first grand prix back in1988. It was big buzz for me as a 9year old kid, watching all those legends Kevin Schwantz, Wayne Rainey,.. It became a whole life love and till today I still prefer MotoGP over F1. :)

        Yes and Schumacher in 2013 also very sad...

        The only driver in Formula One history to finish in the top three in every race of a season and then also broke the record for most consecutive podium finishes. According to the official Formula One website, he is "statistically the greatest driver the sport has ever seen".

        December 29, 2013 - suffers skiing injury while out with son Mick
        March 7, 2014 - put into induced coma by doctors
        Apri 4, 2014 - out of induced coma
        June 16, 2014 - leaves Grenoble Hospital for rehabilitation clinic in Lausanne
        September 9, 2014 - leaves Lausanne for home on Lake Geneva to continue rehabilitation
        May 23, 2015 - manager Sabine Kehm releases statement on 'severeness of injury'

        The German F1 legend moved to a rehabilitation clinic in Lausanne on June 16 2014, six months after head injuries suffered in the skiing fall in the French Alps left him fighting for his life.

        He spent another three months in care before moving to his home on Lake Geneva to continue his recovery with his family - wife Corinna, children Mick and Gina-Maria - and a specialist teams of doctors and nurses.

        His manager, Sabine Kehm, recently gave a positive update saying that he was "making progress" but there have been precious few reports of clear encouragement in the last 12 months.

              A great fan sice 90's, when i see Mika Hakkinen's engine blow up in the finish line and lose the championschip (M. Shumacher it forward at that time)

                But qualifying was interesting. Funny how first hamilton spun off and afterwards rosberg went off the track in last corner.

                Hope for great race action tomorrow out there. Since Kimi has to start at p14 in the grid.
