    Hey fellow Racing-Fanatics!

    I thought it would be nice to make a Thread where we can introduce ourselves.
    What hobbies you have, what line of work you're in. What passions you have. Tell us which controller you're racing with (Wheel/Gamepad) and your pc-specs.

    Shout out boys!

    My normal line of duty is being an Operational Teamleader but lately my hobby became my line of work. I'm also a Ski-Instructor in Austria.

    My other passion is Formula One. I read all about it every day and love to read some in-depth articles for an ever growing better understanding of F1. Also analyzing a race while watching is a great thing to do. I dare to say I know a lot more to the ever more failing Olav Knol! But yeah, that isn't to hard! ;)

    I race with a Thrustmaster F430 FFB on an i5-6600K, 16GB DDR4 and my precious GTX 1070 in my living room on my, also precious, Sony Bravia!

    Hey everyone,

    I am @Wouter van der Giessen , better known as Shaki123. I have raced here on RD for a long time and have a lot of great memories here. There were also some rivalries here and there, right @Henri Sinik :cool: I use a gamepad (yes, come at me) and no assists. My PC is extremely old and still runs 5gb DDR2 :roflmao:..

    I am very happy to be racing again with you lot. Cannot wait to start the new season!

    Hey guys,
    I'm Ed, with the IGN EJ, I used to race on the 360 a few years ago, but now having made the switch to PC, my interest in F1 has increased. I use a gamepad for racing, with an AMD FX-4350, 8GB Ram and an GTX 750Ti - not the best but it'll do lol.

    Hey!
    I'm Aleix, Raptorne on steam :thumbsup: I'm currently studying for superior automotive technician to later specialize on racing engineering.
    F1 has been my passion since I was 4 and I've (almost) never missed a race. And also I've always wanted to be part of it, as driver, as mechanic, as engineer... Anything. And I have the chance! I only need to work hard.
    I'm also a biker on my free time. I love riding on the mountains of Barcelona with my 29" bike.
    I'm using my Driving Force GT for playing. I've been using it since I started on simracing on PS3. GT5 was were all started... But now I mostly race on Assetto Corsa and now F1 2016.
    My PC setup is: AMD FX-6300 (OC to 4.5GHZ), 8GB Ram DDR3, 1TB HDD and my little diamond... My Nvidia GTX 960:redface:
    See you on the track;)

    Hi,

    I'm Jamie, from England. I'm 32 and work in IT. As Jas knows, it's a "full-time job and two kids" which sees me playing less than I would like.

    I've loved watching F1 for many years, although not as avidly as some. Jenson will always be "my boy". I also own a Jenson Button signed piece of Suspension from one of the Beautiful Championship winning Brawn Cars of 2009.

    I race on an i7, 16GB RAM, Evo SSD, GTX970 and Logitech G27 (badly) ;)

    Cheers for letting me join in the fun.

    J

    Hello,

    I'm 27 years old and I work Mechanic and also work on the family farm. I've loved Formula one since I was 3 years old. When I started watching F1 I didn't support anyone until Damon Hill started racing.
    My current PC specs are an i7-6700, GTX 970 and I race with a T300RS.
