Maximus Polek

As a fan of Formula 1 since the age of 13, now 23 I am eager and excited to share my opinions and viewpoints on the sport. With my older brother also being a lifelong Formula 1 fan, I have been talking about the sport to him for over a decade and would love to share more about the sport with other lifelong fans like us. Being able to attend the Las Vegas Grand Prix last year was one of the best experiences and has taken my love and passion for the sport to a new level.

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage. From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
