Happy 100th to me!

Yes, this is the 100th post on Rookie F1!

When I started this I had no idea quite what I was letting myself in for, I hardly expected to wake up in the middle of the night with an idea for a blog, or for that matter find myself switching the laptop on to write a guide to Formula One fashion. Starting this has led to an invitation to the Red Bull Racing factory, and a desire to traipse up to Manchester to watch Jenson Button drive the streets. Through this I’ve met (virtually and actually) some immensely cool people who find an obsession with Formula One quite the normal occupation, where setting an alarm to avoiding missing the flyaway races is just ‘something you have to do’, rather than a reason to be sectioned. Whereas before Formula One was an enjoyable thing to do on a Sunday, I now understand far more and take pleasure in agonising over how to pitch my race report. And that is, in a way, thanks to to those I tweet with, have met and chat to. Cheers!

Has it really been 100? For sure…
