Welcome

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 Motorsport.com 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 - www.patreon.com/SomersF1

Hi

If you've found your way here you have more than a passing interest in F1 and want to use your skills to tell the rest of the world about it.

For those of you that don't know I got into writing in 2012 when www.FinalSector.co.uk were looking for a technical writer.  I'd dabbled with my own sites a little before that but this is where things really started to take off.  I'm far from the finished article and have developed my writing skills considerably over the last three years to the point where I frequently get paid to write content for other sites, as such I'm hoping I can help others do the same.

I've recently acquired the now defunct FinalSector.co.uk domain with a view of ressurecting the site as a credible news source, powered by fans that are dedicated to the sport they enjoy.  If that sounds like you, please drop me an email: somersf1@gmail.com explaining who you are, if you have done any work for other sites in the past and/or if you are just an F1/driver/team fanatic that wants to get involved.

I certainly can't promise payment for your skills whilst working for Final Sector but what I can do is provide you with a platform to express yourself.

If writing isn't your bag but you're handy with wordpress design, you have some skills when it comes to graphic design or you simply have some ideas that you think will work well on this project please give me a shout.

I'm hoping to launch the site in the latter part of the season ready for a full blown attack in 2016 and although the site will initially deal exclusively with F1 there is scope to look at other series down the line too.

Hope to hear from you soon!
