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 -

Do you have a business or product that you feel will align with the #TechF1 audience? If so and you would like to talk to me about banner advertising on the website please drop me an email:

I have an ever growing audience, currently having around 30,000-40,000 pageviews a month but I expect this to steadily increase.

People want to understand the technical aspects of the sport it's just not as accessible to them as perhaps it should be, I intend on changing that.
