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 -

Myself and Will Tyson are collaborating on an eBook series looking at the Mercedes W05, examining why it has dominated the 2014 season.  We have setup an Indiegogo crowdfunding page, which will support the initial costs involved in generating the eBooks for distribution and hope to have the first part available in time for Christmas.



  1. Hey Matt,

    nice initiative from you and Will. I will certainly do a donation. Will donators get early access to it?

    Friendly greetings,

    Andy (turbof1)

    1. nvm, readed it on the crowdfunding page :D.
