As F1 winds down for the summer break, next week on #F1Chat we will be joined by former McLaren mechanic Marc Priestley – aka @f1elvis, who will be answering your questions about Formula One and his work within the sport. With the teams on a compulsory 2 week factory shut down, on Monday we’ll be handing over the #F1Chat reins to you to put your questions to Marc.
A former race mechanic for McLaren between 2000 and 2009, having worked alongside Mika Hakkinen, Kimi Raikkonen, Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton, among others, Marc is now working in F1 journalism, and has recently reported from the pitlane with 5 Live at this year’s British Grand Prix.
If you’ve got a question for Marc, whether its on his work with McLaren, a technical question, or what he thinks about the 2012 season, join us on Monday at 4pm Eastern US, 9pm UK, when we will be chatting to him about his experiences and discussing the season so far. We look forward to seeing you there!
