The Great F1 Dream #12 : Dream vs Reality (Story Blog*)

My eyes hurt.

My legs hurt.

I hate the humidity we’ve had lately and I hate the sun. I’m the only one that does hate it. My room is stuffy but it is the only place at the moment where I feel comfortable. The room next door has a fan in it but I’d have to sit in an uncomfortable chair and downstairs is cool but we still haven’t tidied up after my sister left home.

So I’m sat in my tiny bedroom on my tiny bed with Mack staring at me from atop of Pork Rock and a range of drinks next to me to battle the migraine brought on from heat and exhaustion through the day trying to remember what it is I was meant to be doing!

The Great F1 Dream #10 : Remembering….

Something that sets off my anxiety quite badly is remembering things and worrying that nothing will be the same again in the future. Whilst things always have to change sometimes the change is so big that I can’t believe that I’ve lived through them.

It gets to the point where you can remember what it was like before and you know it is completely different and it is like living two separate lives light years apart.

I’ve said it a lot of times but for a change I’m really going to talk about what really got me into the online F1 fandom to begin with.

My Bruno Senna Fan Forum.

Alonso vs Vettel : The Silverstone Edition

Yes because I’m woefully behind thanks to work this is coming quite late in the day. But after the minor….. Minor success we had with a poll before we thought we’d start another debate with a week till the next race.

So the question up for discussion is Alonso vs Vettel.

It was fun to watch, I loved it even if my driver came out behind in the end. I also loved the team radio. I know some people wanted them to shut up and race but personally I loved that we got to see their passion WHILST they raced. Cause usually the person doing the whining is usually whining and not really attacking or if they are then they aren’t getting anywhere so pull back, this time they were fighting corner to corner, trying to out drag each other and out break each other WHILST complaining on the team radio about each other.

I thought it was great!

I loved hearing them getting irate with each other and showing their skills on the track.

So our two polls this week :

First up, DO YOU THINK THE RACING WAS FAIR?

I mean that was both of their complaints really wasn’t it? That the other one was using too much of the track or racing unfairly one way or the other. If you choose no please feel free to comment on the blog to let us know which of the two drivers you don’t think was driving fairly!

Secondly, DID YOU THINK THE TEAM RADIO MESSAGES WERE TOO MUCH OR DID YOU ENJOY THEM?

As I said sometimes I agree that moaning about a situation that you have to get yourself out of is silly but personally this time I liked hearing the drivers whilst they were fighting. Even if their points were a bit pointless…

It will be interesting to see how people feel about the whole thing because I personally thought it was the greatest part of what was a great GP in general!

The Great F1 Dream #8 : Fed Up

*****JUST A REMINDER, THESE BLOGS, THE ONES THAT FALL ON THE FIRST TUESDAY OF THE YEAR, ARE FICTIONAL BLOGS. THEY ARE THE FUNNY SIDE WITH PLOTS AND TWISTS TO FOLLOW THE BLOG ON TRYING TO GET INTO FORMULA ONE. SOME OF THE VIEWS, FEELINGS AND ALL OF THE SCHEMES ETC ARE FICTIONAL AND UNLESS STATED ANYWHERE ELSE ARE ONLY IMPORTANT TO THE STORY OF THE MONTH FOLLOWING THE PRETEND ME!******

After another hard day I sit here and put the race on.

Sitting about watching it reminds me of all the dreams I had. At one point I wanted to be a driver then realized I’d have to actually drive something to be a driver (by that time I was a bit old to get into it,) then I wanted to be a reporter but that didn’t work out, especially after I decided to do History as a A-Level instead of media!

Now I work in a shop…..

The Great F1 Dream #7 : Infiniti Red Bull Racing

Taking over from the Jaguar Racing Team, Red Bull bounced onto the grid in 2005.

Straight from the off they became known for being one of the most laid back and friendly teams, but deadly serious about their racing and extremely proud of any and every achievement they make.

It took till 2010 (only 5 years!) to get their first championship and since then no one has been able to stop them.

They are currently the Constructors Champions with the Drivers Champion still driving for them.

Current line up :

Team Principal : Christian Horner

Chief Technical Officer : Adrian Newey

Race Drivers : Sebastian Vettel (1) , Daniel Ricciardo (3)

Test Drivers : Sébastien Buemi (15) , António Félix da Costa

The Car :

Chassis : RB10
Engine : Renault

The Great F1 Dream #6 : Speech Problems

Don’t you just hate it when people think that you should just be able to make friends?

My sisters both found it easy to get on with people, literally my youngest sister has just been rehomed in a completely different area from where we’ve lived our whole life and she’s already got a whole load of new friends.

Me?

I don’t know, I can’t talk to anyone. My sister doesn’t understand and she’ll try to make out that she’s shy too but she doesn’t know the half of it!

The Great F1 Dream #5 : No more introductions… Not much F1 either

So yes, at this moment I am still not really on the ball with these blogs, I have a few ideas ready and will be rushing through with them. I’ve been trying to think of how to start them and what to do, I think the beginning is the worst of it.

It is easy when there is something to write (yeah alright I wasn’t able to write or even watch the Canadian GP for personal reasons) but when you are starting a series of posts that you want to be long running where do you start them?

Well next week we’ll have the Austrian but after that?

I guess what I’ll start is writing blogs on the teams and their drivers, it seems the best place to start! After I’ve finished that by this season we’ll be at the end of the season and I can start all over again…..

The panic starts in when I think I have to think a lot further ahead if I want this blog to work.

So this is where I need your help! I think the important thing about these blogs will be to get people involved and hear what it is you want from the general F1 weekly blog. We get the previews and the team reviews but what else do you want to see in the Thursday blogs?

The Great F1 Dream #4 : Still intro-ing / Rate The Drivers

Well I’m not sure what to call this blog really. As the Thursday blogs will mainly focus for the moment on F1 in general I guess the important thing right now is let you know my feelings on the drivers. Not in depth looks but to let you know at a glance what I feel about the drivers.

The Great F1 Dream #3 : Diary Post May “Internet Shyness”

Another year older this month, on the 20th I turned 25. Yeah another big milestone came and went.

Growing old isn’t a topic I want to talk about this month, maybe not even ever. It isn’t a nice thing to want to dwell on. Instead I thought my first personal “diary” post should be about something that dogs me every day.

Internet Shyness.
