We’ve been authoring formula1blog.com since 2005 and many of you have come to know our writing or podcasts over the years. We couldn’t be more grateful for your patronage and support. The desire was to create THE Journal of F1 Opinion and we feel we’ve achieved that mission. The goal, from the very beginning, was to create a place where one rule applied…Decorum and civility. Equally, we feel we’ve created a safe harbor for veteran and new fans alike. A place where your knowledge of F1 is not used as a bludgeoning weapon to beat you down or humiliate your publicly. We’re elated to report that veteran at F1B have behaved themselves and embraced the new F1 fans as equals…at the end of the day, we’re all just humans being and we all share and learn together.

If there has been one request over the years, it has been to offer a video series at F1B. While Grace, Paul, Mark and I use video during the recording of our podcasts, that’s nothing more than talking heads and while many of you have asked if we could also record the video while doing the podcasts, we felt that would be a massive file with little benefit…no one wants to watch my pie-hole for an hour and a half in talking-head fashion. Grace, while fun to watch, is just another pretty face when doing a podcast and we were honored that you would want to see that but then felt it added little to the experience.

Rolling Speed

With that in mind, I am proud to announce our new video series for 2012. The series is called Rolling Speed.  Yes, it is a driver’s term and it represents the very essence of what makes Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso, Jimmy Clark, Alain Prost and many others so damned good at what they do. The ability to carry rolling speed into the corner for the optimum exit. We thought long and hard about the name and while it is driver-centric, we felt it represented the very essence of racing. The nuance of speed and effectiveness no matter if the subject if F1, Le Mans, ALMS, GP2, DTM or Indycar.

Much like the nuance of “rolling speed”, this video series will focus on a host of subjects from simple chat about topics current to racing to features stories on how things work in racing. We will be offering our commentary on all things racing and unlike our podcast, Rolling Speed will be short video hits to limit download times and space on your favorite device for viewing.

We are very excited to be working with Drift Innovations on this project and will use their POV action cameras exclusively for the video podcasts. Without further delay, here is a primer for what is coming:

 

Be watching for our first episode soon.

+1. Other than the driver sympathy I have (and which you don’t) we agree on all other topics LOL

Nice Promo. Nice spinning tyre (ps: not a Brit – but still spell that way).

Looking forward to Rolling Speed #001 with anticipation.

Great job guys. This will be something to look forward to, I’m sure. Congrats on all your success. Been your reader for a few years now. Finally decided to register. Also looking forward to the 2012 F1 season. Cheers.

Well, it IS pretty and it does look like it might be visually appealing… but, sorry, what will these videos cover? If you are stepping up the F1Blog game to doing commentary during events or during prep for events, holy cow!
If you are able to do technical review in depth (which we ALL want – the best bits of Matchett are his technical videos on Speed) – great!
If you can access vintage material and re-explain/discuss it – wonderful.
Aw, hell, anything more is more! I take back my worries. Roll ’em.

Looks great! Surely there should be a place for “Grace The Case” though too?

I like it. F1B is slowly but surely turning into F1 central for the F1 enthusiast.

Looks exciting and interesting. Just please don’t make it so only people in the US can watch it.
