About F1M

When I tell people that I am a F1 fan the most frequent question I get asked is “Do you just like it for the crashes?”  I could tell them about the European Grand Prix at Donnington in 1992, which I watched on the telly.  On the first corner of the very first lap, Ayrton Senna made a move around the outside of Michael Schumacher’s Benetton and Karl Wendlinger’s Sauber. The weather was atrocious and the track sodden.  I knew, absolutely, definitely knew, that Senna would spin off and crash.  Somehow, amazingly, gloriously he didn’t, but kept his car on the track and went on to pass Hill and Prost on the same lap, take the lead and, eventually, win the race.  I could tell them all that, but instead I will point them to this blog.


P.S. On the banner photo – one son built the car, the other took the photo.

  1. Funny and insightful. Such a change from the alpha male dominated other F1 sites. Keep up the good work F1 Mum. Mum is certainly the word.

  3. Hi, My name is Sarah and I work for the BBC’s World Have Your Say programme at the World Service radio in London. The programme is discussion based and aims to reflect conversation taking place around the world.

    Today we are talking about the debate around the Bahrain Grand Prix and whether it should take place or not. I read your piece on this and I wanted to invite you to take part in the programme.

    We are on air between 1800 and 1900GMT. If you’re available and you’re interested in taking part, please get back to me with a contact telephone number so we can talk in more detail.

    Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Best, Sarah

    • Hi Sarah
      Thanks for thinking of me. I’m sorry that I didn’t make it back from work in time to take you up on your offer. I hope the programme went well. I’ll listen to it on “listen again”. Thanks again. F1M
