    So the 2014 season is just around the corner, teams eager to get going (except Lotus), fans desperate to see more (not the noses), and pundits eager to get to somewhere warmer.
    We often see many guests viewing posts so why not sign up and say hello. Takes just a minute and removes all those pesky ads :) (plus you can bond with us :p)


    Weather you are:
    - a long standing member (obsessed)
    - a slight regular
    - new to the forum
    - new to the F1 board
    - or looking for an ice breaker to start posting

    so say Hi and tell us a few things about yourself and F1!

    Some questions:



    1) Which driver(s) do you follow?

    2) Which team(s) do you like?

    3) Which team and drivers have you followed in the past?

    4) What was your favourite moment watching F1?

    5) What was your worst moment watching F1?

    6) Why did you start watching F1?

    7) Where abouts are you from?

    8) What other interests do you have outside F1?

    9) How did you come about Not606?​


    Enjoy :D

    7) Where abouts are you from? Bedfordshire

    9) How did you come about Not606? I used to contribute to the BBC 606 forum years ago. When that ended it took a while to work out which forum I wanted to go to. I have lurked pretty much since then, I find this a good place to gauge opinions and learn more about F1 (no, really!). I may end up contributing a bit more than the one or two posts I've done since joining ages ago, but mainly I don't tend to have time to get into contributing to forums properly. I'll definitely carry on reading this one though (I am familiar with the regular posters!) and probably contribute when something happens in F1 that makes me very cross, or happy.
