Verified AMA Hello everyone! I’m Ted Kravitz, Sky Sports F1’s pit lane reporter. Ask me anything!

6.9k Upvotes

Hello everyone, Ted Kravitz here, the Notebook guy off Sky Sports F1 - and I’m here so that you can Ask Me Anything, also known as ‘doing an AMA’! I’ll try to get through as many questions as possible in the time I’ve got and if I can’t answer the question I’ll let you know why! Let’s go!

I'll be online answering questions on Monday 27th June at 6pm BST

PROOF: https://twitter.com/SkySportsF1/status/1540316529983717377

EDIT: Sorry I didn't answer everything but it's been 3 hours and I have to go and put the kids to bed. I'll talk to the great team at Sky Sports F1 digital media and Reddit to see if I can pick up any of the other 1,000 questions at some time in the future, but for now, thank you so much for being here and asking such great questions, even the one about ducks and cheese. And owls. Catch our programmes from Silverstone this weekend, beginning with an F1 Show Special from the Grid on Thursday afternoon. Bye for now, Ted

Welcome to the /r/formula1 Daily Discussion / Q&A thread.

This thread is a hub for general discussion and questions about Formula 1, that don't need threads of their own.

Are you new to Formula 1? This is the place for you. Ever wondered why it's called a lollipop man? Why the cars don't refuel during pitstops? Or when Mika will be back from his sabbatical? Ask any question you might have here, and the community will answer.

Also make sure you check out our guide for new fans, and our FAQ for new fans.

Are you a veteran fan, longing for the days of lollipop men, refueling during pitstops, and Mika Häkkinen? This is the place to introduce new fans to your passion and knowledge of the sport.

Remember to keep it civil and welcoming! Gatekeeping within the Daily Discussion will subject users to disciplinary action.
