F1 Plans To Go Social

Jan 27, 2016, 06:18 PM

After years of ignoring social media and its power, it seems that F1 might just embrace it with a storm - a ‘Driver of the Day’ may be selected from this new media. In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Mithila and Kunal tell you how clichéd such ideas are and how F1 could push the limits on social media too.

Could fans choose what colour should Lewis Hamilton dye his hair next? Or who Pastor Maldonado should crash into!

As we inch closer to the 2016 Formula 1 Season, there’s good news from many quarters of the sport. Pirelli finally seem to be making sense as Renault wonder if they need any more crash tests. And we wonder if Massa’s retirement plans are to turn into a social media reporter. Lastly, do you remember Robert Doornbos? He’s pushing the limits of technology too, albeit in a different industry. Tune in! (Season 2016, Episode 4)
