As a fan for as long as I can recall, Motor Racing remains something which I am deeply passionate about and continue to take pleasure from. Right at the top of the ladder sits Formula One and like many others I was first drawn to it by going to meetings or absorbing it through various media channels from a young age – something which I still continue to revel in. However, there is more to the sport than lights to flag racing; instead it rests upon a melting pot of various subjects and as I have grown older, my interests have matured to have a profound effect on giving opinion and what I focus on.
Through my time as writer and podcaster on GPFocus I have found myself drawn to maintain balance and remain attentive to detail at all times. Coming from an academic background, I tend to centre my views on the political side of the sport – be it from the high-level workings of the Powerbrokers to the decisions made on-track and how this can impact the atmosphere within teams or on driver’s minds.
Equally, my appreciation and fascination of the sport’s history means that many of my articles tend to look to the past to aid the explanation of the present.
Overall, it is hoped that my writing will be useful to fans and help them to engage or foster debate about some of Formula One’s prevalent issues.
