Default Any Formula One Fans?

Are there any Formula One Fans in our lovely Sweet Shoppe Designs Community?

I was introduced to F1 a little over a year ago and was completely shocked how quickly I fell in love with the sport!! Let me back up a little. One of my Fortnite Family members talked about having to go to bed early to watch his favorite driver. Every Sunday afternoon, I would ask him about his driver and the race that he recommended me to watch Forumula 1: Drive to Survive on Netflix.



I'll be the first to admit, the first two episodes were slow, but then after that, I'm not sure what happened I fell in love with the drivers, the teams (Red Bull, Mercedes, etc) and the drama that happened both on track and behind the scenes. I often joke about F1 being the soap opera of the racing world! Now I'm hooked, following drivers on Instagram, paying for the F1 TV app to watch the races and looking forward to each race location as they race all over the world - including here in Austin and next year in Miami!!

So I guess what I'm wondering....are there any fans? If so, who is your team? Mine is Max Verstappen with Red Bull. While I love and look up to Lewis Hamilton with Mercedes, there is something about Max that I absolutely love and can't wait to see him beat the reigning king, Lewis Hamilton!



If you know nothing about Formula One, I 100% recommend Forumula 1: Drive to Survive on Netflix. Give it a chance, past episode 2 and hopefully you'll fall in love with it as much as I have and we can be racing friends!! I'm always looking to expand my racing family and would love more people to join our small group of fans! :wubs:

Honestly I'm not a fan but the Netflix serie could be interesting so thank you for sharing!
The name that came to me with F1 are Prost but it's old now , Schumacher but it's also the past, I only think to Lewis Hamilton right now!

There is a Schumacher documentary coming to Netflix! I'm excited to see it because I've heard so much about him from my F1 friends!!

I also recommend Rush which is about Niki Lauda, who was an amazing man and pivitol for Mercedes and their success!

Thank you Wendy, I never heard about this! It's interesting! Maybe you'll convert me after this!
I'm going to watch if I can have it!

I never liked any sports. My dad watches them all, Formula 1, soccer, tennis...
I would watch sometimes but never was really into it.

The tv show might be interesting though.

I've never really watched Formula One, but have caught pieces if hubby is watching it. I think the Long Beach Grand Prix is Formula One? Hubby got to watch that from a friend's office building.

I've see some amateur races at our local race track - my husband's friend does... I guess you call drag racing? against two cars and short track. We just had an RV drop off (we rent out our RV when we aren't using it) at Road America in Elkart Lake, WI - which I guess is one of the most famous and history tracks in the US. haha - I've lived an hour away from is my whole life and didn't care. Now, I would love to go see a race there... I guess like all the famous drivers drive there, but I don't think Formula 1 does.

Yep fan here too hubby, Dario and myself are team Max as well. But today the race was a huge drama. Or better saying the race who never came....

We watch every week when they are racing. And next week hopefully for the first time since a long time in the Netherlands, Zandvoort. If the cabinet allows it tomorrow...

my husband is a HUGE fan. but then he loves cars more than anything/anyone lol.

Hubs went to every F1 that we had here in Melbourne, and a few oversea, watches every race. In fact he stayed up very late last night to watch and it was delayed due to rain and then after a few laps... cancelled due to heavy rain.

Suffice it to say, there is much F1 chat in our house! (our son doesn't mind a race or two but he'd rather wake up at 1am to watch Manchester United play, lol)

Yes Team Max!!!!!

Today's race was rather a let down
I so wanted to see how George Russel would do after losing pole position SO close yesterday to Max! I think if George replaces Bottas next season he's going to be giving Max a run for his money! He's very talented!

I saw that it's supposed to be coming your way and thought of you when I heard that!!! Wish money wasn't an issue, I'd love to see them all and then we could all see each other, watch the race together!!

WHAT?!! That's awesome that he has seen so many races!! My goal is to go with a friend from Canada to the one in Miami, maybe (hopefully) next year (probably will be 2023 though).

Today's race was a bust. I'm sorry he stayed up way too late waiting to see if it would be cancelled. The rain was horrible!! I felt gutted seeing Perez crash and taken out of the race during formation.

I'm just excited they are back from their summer break, although it also means school has started and my days to sleep in are now interrupted with F1 races!

Who does your family root for?

I had to do a double check because I didn't think F1 had been there and sure enough, unless I read incorrectly they have yet to race in Wisconsin

I think I would love to see the most famous race track in the US, just to say I've been there!!

If he saw the race in 1976 that would have been the only time they raced in Long Beach.

I also didn't know D watched F1! Although knowing what I know about him, I guess it doesn't shock me that he would be interested in racing, or cars at least.

As we are 'Aussies' we always want Daniel Ricardo to be on the podium however we were huge fans of Schumacher in his day and Ayrton Senna when he was alive. Sadly we saw his crash live on tv many years ago and it is still so vivid in my mind.

Hubs has even been to Monaco to see the race once!! and he worked behind the scenes at a few down here too.

He once organised for Mark Webber (an famous Aussie F1 Driver from a few years ago) to drive his race car across the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Was an amazing this to achieve and he still loves telling that story to anyone who will listen, lol

Years ago, when still married we followed NASCAR and would go to Michigan every year. We were all fans of different drivers so it made for fun rivalries in the house.

As for sports I follow baseball and hockey, go Jays, go Habs!!

Love Daniel! I was truly sad when he left Red Bull for McLaren, but understand his move. He is one of the sweetest guys that I've seen and seems so playful, happy to be around!! I hope next season he does well with his car and proves to McLaren why they signed him on with his amazing driving skills!

Monaco!! Oh my gosh, I'm so jealous!! That circuit and countryside is gorgeous!!! Outside of Japan and their overnight race, Monaco is probably my second favorite place for the race!

Wow!! What an awesome opportunity for your husband!! He can tell me that story any time!! All of my F1 friends would LOVE hearing that story. What an honor!!

Oh I bet you hear a lot about Max for sure!!! Even though you aren't a fan, I'm happy to see that you are Team Max as well!! I hope he wins this year and beats Lewis Hamilton, although his crash two races ago put him behind Lewis really put a damper in that scenario. I keep hoping Lewis has peaked and it's time for a new reigning king - Max.

How sad were you when Sainz left for Ferrari? Awww I love Lando and Sainz and miss their bromance that they had! I do love that even though they are on different teams, they haven't lost their friendship and remain strong off track!

There's a whole big world out there and I've crossed paths with many people who have been sharing their likes/interests broadening my horizons. Some things I have passed, but some things like Formula One, I fell in love with watching and following! I am VERY thankful for the people who I have crossed paths with in the last year plus as I believe they are helping me be a better well-rounded person outside of my little bubble that I've experienced. I am only getting better with each and every experience that is crossing my path! I'm excited about the things that I've learned, seen and been able to share with others that I can't wait to see what else I can add to my life.

Huge F1 fans in my house too - hubby and my boys, not me so much. But then cars/motor racing is my husband's bread & butter - he was involved in F1 engine development in the 2000s, working with Mercedes-Ilmor (McLaren team at the time). He and my boys watch all the races, staying up to all hours because of the time differences. My oldest boy (15) can tell you who won every race, who crashed out, etc for the last several years!!

We support the Aussie drivers of course - Ricciardo, Mark Webber before that.

Huge fan for many years!!!! have yet to watch Drive to Survive, but I hear it's great. Really hoping to see Max win the Championship this year, I've been following him since his amazing debut at age 17 (before he even had a road licence!). It was easy to see from his driving style at such a young age that he was going to be a force to be reckoned with.

I grew up watching as my Dad is a huge fan, so we've had many favourites over the years. My current favourites are Max and and old days favourite returning with Fernando Alonso. Also love Danny Riccairdo, who doesn't? Can't wait to see what the rest of the season brings.

Now who is going to make an F1 kit? :P

What?! That's so awesome that he was involved with engine development!! What an awesome opportunity and experience!

I follow Daniel on IG - well some pages that people manage. He seems like such a sweetheart.

I think I heard that Alonso signed on for another year, right?

Yay another Team Max fan!!!! I really hope this year is his year! He really is an amazing driver in the rain, so confident!

If you like F1 you will more than likely like the show! Season 4 was just announced, which was the documentary of last season. I really do like the tv series and I wish all sports did something like this as I think it would pull more people in to watch their sport or get invested!

Yes, yes, yes!!!!
I'd LOVE an F1 kit!!! Then I could scrap the screenshots that I got on my birthday of Max's win!!

Yes, I believe a couple more years for Alonso maybe? I will have to put Drive to Survive on my Netflix watch list! Hopefully someone comes out with a kit, I think Wendy would be perfect for it

This whole weekend the only thing on the news or social media was the race in Zandvoort.

Today's race was bonkers! 100% Max fan here, but LOVE Danny too. Wish he was still at Red Bull so I could root for them together!

The one year the Indy 500 rained out, we had tickets. Yep I got to see like 15 laps and they postponed the race again. We didn't get to go the next day because we had to work. We did get pit paces that weekend too and that was fun to see the cars and some of the drivers before the race. One of the drivers yelled at us too for being there without anyone else, but we had passes.

That being said, I don't really follow F1 racing it was just a sporting event bucket list event to cross off since we lived a few miles from the track. We spent many a day at the museum when we had out of town guests.

I'm going to have a F1 inspired collection coming with DSD!!!

The race from last weekend was surprising with the rain at the end! So sad for Norris (somewhere his own fault with not changing tires with all the water). But well done Max woohoo, never expected THAT!?!?!

Confession. I watched F1 a little bit when I was younger and didnít stick at it. Then I watched drive to survive and Iím OBSESSED!!! Like Iím in love and Iím sad Iíve missed it all these years.

My favourite drivers are Ricciardo and Lando Norris. Max Verstappen too actually, I canít forget about him

I just had to pop in and give a shout out to Lewis as there seems to be soooo many Max fans on here. Sorry ladies, I'm on any team but his! Max is my new Schumacher ... the driver you just love to hate. To me he is the petulant child who bullies when he doesn't get his own way, and as much as I love the rivalries, he is way too "dour" as my old Mum would have said (Scottish word meaning sullen).
I've been a fan of Formula 1 for as long as I can remember and the funny thing is it is my Mum who I used to talk F1 with, not my Dad. She talked of Jim Clark in the 60's while Senna was my hero. Sadly, I never got to see him drive
I'm still a maclaren fan from way back and love Ricciardo and Norris together - it's like Laurel and Hardy meets F1!

It's always a juggle in our house which to watch live when there is a clash - MotoGP, WSBK, F1 or football (soccer). The kids are left to fend for themselves lol. I haven't been to a F1 since the kids came along - I was so disappointed when they cut the noise years ago, the sound of the cars in the 90's was epic. Would love to watch a race overseas one day if lockdown ever finishes.....

Yup! One time when one of my kids was little we were driving around and it started to rain. My kid asked if we needed to change tires....
