Hello!

Post by Zekenwolf »

Sorry, but I should have done this before my first post.

I am a GP living in Royal Wootton Bassett and working in Swindon. I have been a fan of F1 since the legendary 1976 shootout between Lauda and Hunt. At that time I was a very junior doctor in India but have lived in the UK since 1985.

Over the years my favourite driver was (and in some ways still is) the late Ayrton Senna. Of the present bunch I like Sebastion Vettel (I'm afraid :D), although I have a grudging respect for Alonso.

I love scuba diving and regularly go to exotic places around the world to dive. Got back from Fiji last month and am going to Cayman Islands in January 2014.

At it's current rate Damascus is almost a nicer place to live than Swindon.

But welcome!

Dunno. Depends how he ages. Obviously being 23 myself at the moment, it's not a thought I wish to dwell on :wink:
