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 -

  1. It's all very well and fine that F1 "pushes technological boundaries, with the pace of the changes to the cars as swift as the laptimes" but when the racing and competiveness is affected and the spectacle of this sport is affected, then I think that F1 should be really looking seriously at redefining and refining what it's "technological boundaries" should really be so that no team can gain a superior advantage and stay there so that the racing is non existent. This is what has been happening in the last 5 plus years with Red Bull Racing dominating for 4 years and now with Petronas Mercedes total domination since 2014. F1 has lost allot of fans that are very disenchanted with what is happening to the grids and the quality of the so called pinnacle of motor acing.

  2. F1 is a series that focuses on the technical challenge as much as the drivers challenge. I find the engineering development almost as fascinating as the races.
