F1 2024

March 2, 2024

Today is the start of the 2024 Formula 1 season. My football posting around here is going to quickly turn into racing discussion. (And, soon enough, baseball.) Like many Americans, I found a love for F1 during the early days of Covid through Drive to Survive. I never would have predicted this, but it’s surpassed the NFL as my favorite thing to watch.

F1 has no shortage of drama and story lines. The personalities are huge. The competition is fierce and often cut-throat. But there’s a class and charm to it that I find missing in the American sports leagues.

Plus, I’m a nerd at heart and I absolutely love the engineering side of the sport. Unlike most other motorsports, F1 teams must design and build their own cars from scratch. There’s so much involved in designing a car from the floor to the wings to the engine itself. These are custom built rocket ships on wheels.

If you haven’t given Formula 1 a chance, it’s worth your time. Lights out, and away we go! 🏎️
