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 -

Courtesy of Canal+ - I'm quite sure this should be regionally locked but whilst it's up, take the opportunity to watch 30 minutes of on-board footage from the 1st three races.






  1. Thanks for posting these Matt, absolutely brilliant viewing. So much more to see than from the TV coverage. I can't believe how much Nico plays with his steering wheel and how much info seems to be put up on the wee screen.

    1. Brilliant. Thanks for posting. The large numbers on his screen that he changes almost for every corner is brake bias. I wonder why we can't see LH screen. Would love to be able to compare.
