About WTF1

Tom Bellingham Founder & Content Manager

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. Get in touch at tom.bellingham@wtf1.com.

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.

Dan Thorn Editor

I'm responsible for the editorial side of things here at WTF1. I love everything about motorsport and as much as I love looking at its history, I'm also excited for what the future holds. In my spare time I like making woeful jokes and continuing my quest to see if there's a type of food which isn't improved by adding cheese.
