Formula 1 2012 is almost upon us: my 22nd consectutive season of still being utterly captivated by the speed, power, colour, drama, characters and glamour that’ll roar into my living room 20 weekends of the year.

To mark the dawn of the new season, I’ve updated a post from last year of different Formula 1 intro sequences during my time following the sport, including Sky’s latest. Each of them, for different reasons, make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up as at the time. Enjoy.
