You get up at 6am on a Saturday just to watch qualifying
And again on Sunday for the race
But no matter what time you wake, the coverage is still horrible
And your local news coverage is even worse
You're the only one of your friends who watches F1
So you have no one to discuss things with...
And more importantly, no one to fangirl with
You have to defend it from people who don't think it's a sport
And correct people who think it's the same as NASCAR
Or worse, talk about it with someone who hasn't watched since the 1980s
But it's ok
Although some people will just never understand
You can always try to turn a non-believer
Or take comfort in your fellow fans worldwide
And the knowledge that there will be another Grand Prix soon
Or you could just cry yourself to sleep.
