Matthew Hobkinson

Matthew Hobkinson is a top young sports journalist who specialises in Formula 1, joining GPFans in the summer of 2023.

A proper petrolhead, Matt learnt his trade with PA Media and became one of just four graduates among his cohort to be offered a full-time role at the company upon the completion of his NCTJ Diploma, making his first splash in journalism in the world of Premier League football.

Matt would go on to cut his teeth at the Manchester Evening News and become an integral part of their coverage of both Manchester United and Manchester City, before moving after six months to run LeedsLive’s matchday blogs for Leeds United’s Premier League games, while also covering live managerial press conferences for the club. Next, Matt switched to ChronicleLive, helping the site capitalise on growing interest in Newcastle United.

Since making the switch to GPFans, Matt has become one of the site's most important and influential journalists and counts interviewing Jenson Button as a true career highlight.
