The Pitstraight is a website for Formula 1 fans born out of a frustration with existing news sites. Founded by Neal Brown in 2008 as Formula One Blog, we aim to provide opportunities for writers to publish articles in what is a difficult industry in which to get a break. Formula One Blog morphed into Neal on F1 in 2009 before a final rebranding project saw the launch of The Pitstraight in time for the 2011 season.
