It's always nice to know who folk support!

Be they past or present drivers or teams, who are your favourites?

My favourite driver is Sebastian Vettel. Team-wise, I don't particularly support anyone.

Seb's great, I definitely have loved watching him mature as a racer over the last few years.

Kimi's my guy though. Seeing him do an appearance on Top Gear ages ago was what got me into F1. He just seemed like a pretty cool guy.

As for team, it's gotta be Ferrari. I really hope they keep their shit together this year and actually stay in this championship run.

Kimi is indeed a cool guy. The way he interacts with the media has been a constant source of amusement over the years , it will be sad when he's no longer in the paddock, which I suspect will be as of next season to be honest ! He needs some decent results quick, as Seb is overshadowing him a bit at the moment.

I'm so glad that Ferrari have come good this year. Providing one team doesn't massively out-develop the other over the course of the season, I reckon it will go down to the wire between Mercedes and Ferrari. Vettel for WDC and Mercedes for WCC is my prediction.

Speaking of Seb and Kimi... someone shared some hilarious videos the other day on another forum that I'm on, check them out if you get a sec

Yea, Kimi's year so far hasn't been great, which is too bad because he had such a strong season in the team last year. I think your right about this being his final exit from F1.

I love that seb now says bwoah as well.

Kimi is my guy also, I became a big fan after watching clips of his famous interviews. His "I don't care what happened to the others" in Japan, 2012 remains my all-time favorite. See below:

I never was a Ferrari fan until he signed back with them in 2014. I back them because of Kimi. I also have a soft spot for Haas due to their NASCAR background and I like Grosjean now that he's "matured" (opinions may differ lol).

Back in the day, I was a big fan of Panasonic Toyota Racing and Jarno Trulli. I absolutely adored that team, everything about them. Shame they had no idea what they were doing. But they were my first favorites.

Classic Kimi video, gotta love him

Haas have been doing pretty well since their introduction to F1, impressive that they were able to enter and compete at the level they have right off the bat. Definitely agree that Grosjean has matured as a driver - his "crazy" days are long behind him

Grosjean has matured. I'm just pretty sure anyone would be frustrated after the weekend he had though.

The first few races of Haas' career were a thrill to watch! Especially after enduring the misery that was HRT, Caterham, and Marussia in their early years. I couldn't help but not love them and their success. They seem to be enduring a little bit of a "sophomore slump" this year though, despite Grosjean's impressive qualifying performances. Magnussen has been a total disappointment in my opinion.

I hope Grosjean's "crazy" days are behind him because I do like him. Not sure about the move he made on Palmer in Sochi. Then again, the opinions I've seen have been pretty split. Some say he made an ambitious move, other say Palmer turned in on him when he had position. I'd like to think the latter but I don't know...Turn 1 would've been tight at that angle.

Watching the replays, I call it a racing incident. Though, Palmer had more room on the outside than he was claiming. I don't blame Grosjean for the crash.
