Rambling about Racecars


I am David, aged 18 and from the tiny island of Northern Ireland, having first tuned into Formula 1 in 2008 and studied a little bit of Journalism at school, what better to do than combine those interests and create a blog, I don’t really have much of a social life as such so it is a nice way to let the time pass just sitting writing posts for people to hopefully enjoy.

My favourite drivers are Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstappen with my favourite team being Red Bull but none of these factors would ever influence my posts in anyway, straight and to the point is how I like to go with this sort of thing.

I don’t really know what the purpose of this blog is, if I think of something I want to write about, you’ll see it but whatever that is probably just depends how I feel, there is no defined type of post I want to stick to, branching out is quite cool I think anyway.

In my off time I like watching other sports with Football being the main one, supporting Arsenal puts me through enough of a headache and heartbreak, without also being hooked on pretty much every other sport going.

Music is another passion of mine, I can’t play anything and I don’t sing well but I listen to pretty much all sorts of stuff, for those who have come here via Twitter you’ll know I obsess over the next concert coming to town, sorry.

It is a similar story with TV, I am what you would call a boxset junkie having finished series such as Game of Thrones in 10 brutal, action-packed days.. once I start an episode I end up watching about 10 and I do fear that will never change.

The ultimate dream would of course be to one day walk around the paddock as one of those proper journalists covering F1 with the passes and accreditation to access all the cool stuff in the world of F1, but for now I will make do with putting my thoughts on this little space of the web and maybe just maybe someone who can help me along that path will stumble upon it and like what they see, or am I being too optimistic?

Either way if you want to know a little more about me, fire away with a comment somewhere on here, or visit the contact page, though your best bet would be to get through to me on Twitter at @_Dave97
