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 -

Meanwhile my latest episode of the #TechF1 Show is now available

I have made some amendments to the lighting and general setting of the show based on the feedback from the demo I did for Spa.  I'm still not happy but feel it's a much better job than before, please bear with me throughout the next few shows whilst I continue to try and improve things.  Any feedback you have would be greatly appreciated and I'd ask you to leave a comment either here or over on YouTube.
