In the spirit of Valentine's Day, we thought we'd ask our fans what they love most about Formula One. The response? From the hilarious to the heartwarming... pure loved-up brilliance!
IN WORDS: What do you Love Most About F1?
'I love the fact that F1 is the pinnacle of the Motorsport formula ladder'
"I love the fact that F1 is the pinnacle of the Motorsport formula ladder. It brings some of the fastest drivers in the world to compete for the ultimate CV. I also love the travel aspect of it. For engineers and dedicated fans, travelling the world to each race is special in itself and if I had the money I'd definitely fly to every weekend.
"Also, I love the engineering / driving side. So much work goes into the cars and the driver has to undergo some serious training in order to tame the car and that is something that I admire about this sport. The relentless teamwork and team spirit within each team is something that I love and want to be a part of in the future."

'It teaches us so many simple things which we can follow in our life and be a good person in this world.'
"I love F1 because of many reasons. It tells us how far we've reached in terms of technology. The skills F1 racers have to acquire, the teamwork, always to be fully focused on what you're doing, having the attitude to never give up along with respect for other racers by not being dirty on the track. The hard work racers have to do in order to be in shape for racing, the quick decision making and incredible reaction time, the celebration after a race victory etc. It teaches us so many simple things which we can follow in our life and be a good person in this world."

'It‘s all about lovely people, fans, engineers, drivers and more who share the same passion.'
“Teams working on the limit achieving this one goal together, the thrill of driving on the absolute limit squeezing out the fastest lap you can, the bravery to battle it out at 300+kph, the ever-present constant of change, the build-up to lights out…”

'Love is when you can't imagine living without that someone/something and I can't imagine life without F1.'
