F1, The First Colour

This is about the experiencing everything for the first time. Like first time getting into a car to learn how to drive, first date, first holiday and whatever we do for the first time. Right now only thing I can think of is the first time watching formula 1 on TV & not knowing what on earth is going on. We had a little black and white television at home. At that time I didn’t even know what cable or colour TV is. Every single stupid thing that annoys the hell out of us now used to amuse us. I was born in 1983. So 1991 makes me only 8 year old when I first watched Formula 1 race at a rich relative’s house. Everybody knows its sport where money controls the progress of a talent as a racer until the driver is sponsored. Most of the current F1 drivers started at the age of 6/7 to become a F1 driver. Most of them don’t end up getting a drive in F1 car in their entire career. So they end up going to nascar, indy car and other categories of motor sport. Anyway, I wasn’t born in a rich family so i have become just a fan. I remember watching Ayrton Senna wining the world championship from Nigel Mansell. That was my start and now I am so passionate about this sport that i wish i could be involved with formula 1 somehow as a career. But even to get you involved with F1 in any possible way is a matter of great resources, talent, education and of course money. Its the end of 2009 and i enjoyed the F1 the least amount because of all the politics and changes that F1 went through. Intentionally i would never miss a F1 race or qualifying. When one season is finished i crave f1 until the following season arrives. So i am really looking forward to the 2010 season. With the drivers’ shuffle and aerodynamics changes it promises to be an exciting season. Its incredible that we don’t need a cable TV anymore to watch nice colourful F1 races in widescreen plasma or lcd. It makes me think that yeah the world has changed for better than worse. But my first time F1 memory is always special because it was the first thing i watched in a colour TV!!!!!
