I'm Matthew Somerfield, a freelance journalist focused on the technical elements of Formula One. It has been a pleasure to provide content via this site for the last 5 years, which has led me to several paid freelancing jobs along the way. I'm currently plying my trade with and working alongside the legend that is Giorgio Piola.

This has seen the content here diminish as a result and I'd like that to change. In order to accomplish this I need your financial support, as I need to break free of the shackles of doing this part time. If you like the content I've been producing and want more of it I'd ask that if you can spare some change each month it'd go a long way towards transforming this site into the technical behemoth I know it can be.

As such I've set up a 'tip jar' over on Patreon and will continue to set goals and rewards based on our success -

The following video is a demo of the new studio version of the TechF1 show, there are issues with the lighting and syncing of the voice but I hope it conveys what the show will look like from Monza onwards.  It's a fairly low budget production due to me funding the whole project but I hope you enjoy it.



  1. Well done Matthew, I think this has potential!
    I'm looking forward to see the other episodes.
    But please sort out the sound and color. Close mic-ing always sounds better. Maybe a beamer would be nice for a bigger image.



  2. This is definitely the way to go. Best of luck. Best of luck. David

  3. Thanks for the positives guys, lighting and mic'ing will be rectified for the Monza episode
