One Take at a Time

"I have always believed that victory comes when we dare to dream big, and the courage to pursue those dreams." Hi, I'm Anirudh - Your Seasoned F1 Wordsmith at EssentiallySports I'm not just a writer; I'm a passionate scribe with an insatiable curiosity that fuels every word. My love affair with Formula 1 began in 2003 when I was merely 3 years old, and it has been my enduring passion ever since. The legendary Michael Schumacher has been my guiding force in the exhilarating world of Formula 1, inspiring my writing style that transforms sports pieces into thrilling journeys, keeping you hooked from start to finish. My venture into sports journalism was fueled by a desire to translate this passion into words. IndyCar entered my world in 2018, adding a new dimension to my sporting interests. My interests extend beyond the track; I'm a swimming enthusiast, an avid reader, a quiz aficionado, and, a devoted foodie. In my writing and exploration, I invite you to buckle up and join me on a ride through the sports world, on a journey that combines passion, expertise, and a love for the extraordinary in sports.
