James Dielhenn

Head of Content

James joined the Crash.Net team as Head of Content in 2022.

After a decade at Sky Sports where James covered everything from American football to boxing to the Olympics to F1 across editorial, social and video platforms, he embraced the world of motorsport in his new role with Crash.Net.

His years as a journalist have taken him through a two-month stint in Rio de Janeiro for the 2014 World Cup (the caipirinha is as strong as they say…) to the Las Vegas Strip for Floyd Mayweather fights.

It was at Sky Sports where James was a key cog in the digital publishing department, working alongside TV production colleagues across every sport.

James previously graduated with a sports journalism degree from the University of Brighton but his journey to becoming a journalist had already started through, initially, an obsession of football which spread to other sports.

Michael Schumacher in the glorious red of Ferrari during his early-2000s pomp was James’ introduction to F1 and motorsport.

When he isn’t working, James will be watching his beloved Leeds United. Often, from behind the sofa, in sheer terror.
