Driver or Team?

When Supporting F1, do you lean towards supporting a Team or a Driver?

  1. 1. Do you support the Team, or the Driver?

No both. Just either one or the other.

Always cared more about individual drivers than about teams in F1/other single seater series. In other racing series I usually support a team (manufacturer).

My first year I went with team, but I think I'm more driver. 

Obviously love Riccarido, and can't help but like Max. I found myself very happy when Gasly got the podium last year after the crazy year he had, and then while he doesn't add much personality wise, I do find myself liking Gio.

I mean I always had a soft spot for Sauber and always want them to do well but I still focus on individual drivers first and foremost. That would probably be different if there was a team I could really "identify" with but until then I just like some more than some others.

I've always had a favourite driver, never REALLY a favourite team. There are teams that I sympathize with, especially Sauber, but I'm more a fan of individual character, personality etc. when it comes to F1.

He's alright, I guess. He surely matured a lot in the last few months. I like him too, but he has his unlikable moments, where he takes after his wife beating father.

Just that bit of arrogance. In press conferences and interviews. Guess it's a classic trademark of a future World Champion though. Schumi was similar at his prime.

I'm not a fan of arrogance. I like down to earth kind of guys. Before Vettel, my absolute favourite was Heinz-Harald Frentzen. xD I always liked Kimi too though.

That's the thing, I don't perceive Verstappen as arrogant at all. Same with Schumi. Polarising figures with a lot of self-confidence and determination (and in Max's case also quite a bit of hotheadedness and a lot of typical Dutch bluntness) but for me it's a typical characterisation of most top athletes - I do understand that they might come across as arrogant to some people though. Also funny thing I noticed about Max - he comes across completely differently in his interviews in English compared to the ones in German or Dutch. 

Wait you're saying Kimi's arrogant too? O.o

True, he's always pretty nice in his German interviews. It's weird that only RTL seem to interview him in German though, and SKY it's almost only English. Well, mainly because they share their interview bits with British Sky. 

No, no, Kimi was the down to earth place holder until a German down to earth guy comes along. :P

ORF always does the interviews with him in German too! I think SRF as well but their F1 moderator annoys me so I don't watch it anymore xD 

Ah I misunderstood you regarding Kimi there and was a bit confused haha.

He is a great driver, and the Netflix series leads you to believe he is an ass hole and him and DR are enemies...but the more you look, the more you see that him and Danny are actually friends. 

Netflix meeded drama.

Think I've always been Ferrari since I first started watching F1 (probably due to my brother liking Ferrari too at the time).

Probably still will be until a cunt of a driver comes along.
