  1. Thanks Keith, outstanding job with the whole weekend. You really add another dimension for the F1 Fanatic.

  2. This is the most informative and comprehensive F1 site I’ve come across. The analysis is just outstanding, and makes a welcome change from the “let’s copy/paste from Autosport” brigade. Keep it up!

      Yes, I think you’re right.
      Keith’s site has been consistently excellent for a long time and attracting more and more followers. Just look at the number of people who bothered to vote on the “Whose fault?” poll – 4,000. I’d love to see the visitor stats for the past weekend.

  3. Hear hear! Keith puts the official F1 site to shame.
