WTF1 was founded in 2010 by motorsport enthusiast Tom Bellingham. His vision was to serve and connect with a new generation of motorsport fans who engage purely on social media. The brand is now widely respected, recognised and loved by its fans including industry influencers and Formula 1 teams, as well as former drivers Damon Hill and Pastor Maldonado.
The brand was acquired by Car Throttle in 2017 and now sits within their automotive network, propelled by a team who live and breathe social motorsport content.

Jessica McFadyen Head of WTF1
Having been an F1 fan all my life, I now work closely with WTF1's partners (including racing series, tracks, teams, sponsors) to help them connect with our followers, and to keep bringing the best motorsport content to our fans. Originally from Brixworth, UK. Allllll about #TeamLH. If you'd like to find out how you can partner with us, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tom Bellingham Founder & Editor
Known on the interwebs as Tommy, I founded WTF1 back in 2010 as a way to chat and engage with people who love motorsport as much as I do. My dream is to make WTF1 the go-to motorsport brand for fans… that, and drive a Formula 1 car one day.
Matthew Gallagher Presenter
You may see me occasionally raging about how Mercedes are overpowered or commenting on how Vettel can't blame seagulls for missing an apex. When I'm not living and breathing motorsport, you may see me dropping shapes on a dancefloor or playing a cheeky bit of tennis.
Alistair Bullock Assistant Producer
I'm the video producer at WTF1. When I'm not editing footage of Matt, I'll normally be on Autotrader looking for my next car or picking out my perfect garage.
Dan Thorn Staff Writer
I create a wide range of written content for the site and can often be found preaching unpopular opinions about racing. I love learning about the history of motor racing and in my spare time I...actually, who am I kidding, I'm a motorsport fan - I have no spare time!
