This is a blog maintained by myself, Daniel Babineau. I reside in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

I’ve loved Formula One ever since I watched my first race in 1997 at the age of 12. It was the Australian Grand Prix, and it taught me the names of such memorable drivers like David Coulthard, Mika Hakkinen, Jacques Villeneuve, Michael Schumacher…

I still wish that I had started to follow Formula One a few years before then, so that I could say today that I saw Ayrton Senna race. I had no idea what Formula One was back in that day though, and I only happened across it by chance.

With each passing year, I become an even bigger fan of the sport despite all of the off-track drama and politics which seem bent on destroying the sport I love with a passion.

Indeed, Formula One is probably my biggest passion and at the age of 24, I know that I still have lots of time to watch history be made in the sport someday in the future. Perhaps by Hamilton, Vettel, Hulkenburg.. Or maybe a driver who won’t even appear for another decade?

I’m certain of one thing though, and that’s the fact that as long as the engines are revving, they’ll have my interest and I’ll be writing about it here!

As well, many teachers in my past would tell me that I should get into journalism based on my assignments and essays that I would hand in. I always liked to hear that from them, and I have never considered journalism as a career. I’m still unsure of it, but who knows? I enjoy writing and by voicing my thoughts about Formula One here, I may get better at expressing myself using words. It’s a good exercise, and it lets me write about something I really do love. Because of this, I firmly believe that this blog is worth all the effort.

Feel free to leave feedback on this page as well. I’d love to know if I’m doing something right… or wrong!

    Perhaps you’d be delighted to know that you have a race team from Halifax competing in Asia’s Formula BMW Pacific series. The series usually is part of the F1 support races in Asia. The team calls itself Atlantic Racing Team and they are the people behind Kartbahn, the indoor karting place in Halifax.

    Hello Daniel!
    I find it most interesting to see a fellow F1 fan in Halifax. Because, what do you know, I plan to move there in a few years! I hope I will be able to meet you when that time comes.
    As you can tell from my name (obviously not my real name), Jacques Villeneuve is one of my all-time favourite drivers (Gilles was better though).
    (Jacqueline is my real name, btw.)

    À bientôt!
