We all have different interests
And my point is that it doesn't seem to be an interest because while the activity remains the same, people are only interested at specific times, specific places or when specific people/teams play.
So it's not an interest, but some kind of hysteria.

I know a guy who only watches Formula 1 when Max Verstappen is racing.
He started watching when Max started racing, he even sets his alarm at night to watch Max race, but he said that if Max retired he wouldn't watch it anymore.
Makes no sense, whatsoever, he can't really explain it either, but he thinks it's some sort of Dutch pride.
In fact, I didn't hear a lot about F1 until Max Verstappen started racing and suddenly everyone was into F1.
