Just joined a few days ago. Very nice to find a Ferrari Friendly forum. I am 46 and live in Northern California by Lake Tahoe. I have been a fan of F1 since I was around 13 years old. I used to get in trouble in school and was sent to the library to study, They had a US magazine there called " Road&Track" . I used to read about F1 racing in this magazine, I also found a book on Tazio Nuvolari. I guess you could say, " the rest is history"
I was always more interested in "the red cars" They had this crazy Canadian guy that raced for them! Could not say his name to save my life. I started reading and collecting AUTOCOURSE books in 1979, and have everyone since then. I knew about Jackie Stewart and Mario Andretti through American TV.
In the early 80's I found Autosport magazine in a record/book store I used to go to, I could not believe there was a magazine that focused on f1 and racing in general. I was in heaven. I have been reading it ever since. I tried Autosprint a couple times, but don't read italian.
I have followed F1 for the past 30+ years, not always easy to do in the US! I love F1 racing! I have always been more interested in the cars more than the drivers. After Gilles died it never seemed to be the same. Although I really wanted Alboreto to be Champ!
I love Ferrari, the team. I guess I am a "TIFOSI" They have a special place in f1. I have seen them go through many highs and lows, with many different drivers and team personal. I look forward to each season no matter how the last ended.
My Flag flies every race weekend, my neighbors always ask how the race went.
I look forward to contributing to this forum in a positive way. I hope we have we have an incredible season and close the gap on RB & Mac.
cheers to all
