Greetings Ya’ll

Post by Ruslan » 8 months ago

Greetings. Star recommended this forum to me.

Been a follower of F1 for more than a few decades and been on F1 forums for a while. Live near Washington, D.C. as I tend to be one of those who is interested in what goes on there.

Anyhow, hope to find a new home here, as I consider a good forum to be like an extension of my living room, where we can conduct friendly discussions, passionate debates and even occasionally meaningful conversations about a sport that I have an undying passion for.

It did occur to me as I was filling out this form that I actually don’t have a favorite driver right now. There are some I like (Hamilton, Grosjean, Leclerc, Norris, Russell, DR, Ocon) and some I don’t (I will avoid listing them, but some have names that start with V). Gone are the days when I had a clear favorite.

Anyhow, look forward to talking at you all.

Welcome @Ruslan to TFL. You should find most of what you like here, so enjoy. Its a friendly spot where we tend not to get too nasty with each other if we dont share common opinions...... we might agree to disagree on occasion but that as far as it goes.
Look forward to your contributions.
You might not be the only one here who, well lets say drivers surnames beginning with 'V'. :smiley: :wink:

Well, one feature that I like is that you can edit posts. There was always some restrictions to that on the other sites....and I am not a great typist (and my English ain't as good as it should be).

@MonteCristo

We were on grandprix.com. Ruslan and I were two of the mods there and we are in fact good friends. Yes, I did tell him I had joined here and how nice you were all being to me :)

Star and I were members on the grandprix.com forum. It was an un-moderated forum that actually was large and active for a while until the personal infighting tore it apart. It was shame, there were some really good people on that forum. Star and I then stepped in as two of the moderators, but after while, grandprix.com just shut the forum down --- without notice.
