Only been watching F1 properly since 2005 and ever since Ferrari have only ever won with Kimi
. I am bad karma.
I love Ferrari road cars, though only since 1997/8 when I read in a Clarkson book you could own a red car for for a mere £20k. I decided for my 40th I wanted a 308GTB/S. As it happened money would not go to the £25k for a half decent one so I bought a Mondial. Never looked back and won't be without a Fez unless things get dire.
For this reason a friend bought me a Ferrari in F1 book. Bloody excellent read so I started watching F1. Love the sport, the politics too but if Ferrari said tomorrow F1 was not for them I would not watch a single race again. I don't care who drives for them, I will support those drivers whilst they do.
When I first started watching F1, Renault with Alonso were the team to hate, he now of course drives for Ferrari and I think he is great, Shoemaker on the other hand is a traitor
. Would still crack a smile if he won or even made a podium though. I realise without him and Brawn etc Ferrari would not have been so successful of late.
My 2nd team was always Honda, I owned a Honda too.
Favourite driver has to be Jenson, great man, great talent and a fantastic persona, Shame he drives for one of the arch rivals and my GF's favourite team
I must admit though for feeling proud of British teams. We are the best engineers in the world bar none. Stand up and note Germany our British engineers are the world best
We have a few great drivers too, JB LH Paul Di Resta (don't very sound British
