My first ever grand prix was probably the Australian one at the start of the 2008 season.
I watched a few of the 2007 one but never really followed it, but then i got right into it this year.
I just wish I'd followed it much early now! Can't wait for next season :D

From start to finish "live" -- the 1976 Long Beach Grand Prix. Yes, I know I'm old.

But then how totally cool is that?? You lived through Lauda, Rosberg, Piquet, Prost, Senna, and all those other legends! I only started watching from 03' regularly.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

Regularly... I'd say.. since the beggining of 2004... but the frist grand prix ever was the Italian GP of 2003... it was quite fun!

My first Formula One Grand Prix I have ever watched was the 1998 Belgian GP. And the Schumacher/Coulthard brawl.

My first was 2002 Australia. I was hooked after about 5 seconds, when Ralf tried to use Barichello as a takeoff ramp.

My first race was Monaco 2005. Great drive by Kimi Räikkönen and a testament to the speed of the MP4/20. Kimi is still my favorite active driver even though he's had some less than good performances.

My first GP I´ve watched on TV was the Mexican GP in 1992. The newspapers in germany always told about an young German Driver who´s quite looking good driving an Formula 1 car. (MSC) And so on I´ve watched the races over the years! But the Season in 1992 was a bit boring! Due to the good Williams Renault with Mansell and Patrese!!

Mine was somewhere in 1976.... I was a young kid fascinated with F1. My first live GP was at Spa in 1997.
