Michael Butterworth Michael Butterworth - Writer RacingNews365.com

Michael joined RacingNews365 in January 2022, covering the world of F1 from Beijing. With a background in broadcast media, including a stint as a commentator for several Asian motorsport championships, Michael’s baritone features regularly on RacingNews365’s podcast and video content.

Covering F1 from China means Michael is well acquainted with working at odd hours, and he is eagerly anticipating F1’s long-awaited return to Shanghai – a circuit he maintains is underrated.

Happiest when trawling through pages of history for obscure F1 trivia, or trying to lower his Silverstone lap record on F1 2022, Michael doesn’t much like talking about himself in the third person, so thinks he’ll stop now.
