There is a great F1 community on Twitter these days. There are lots of knowledgeable and passionate people out there.
Sadly, I have had to curtail my involvement in the F1 Fanatic liveblogs due to some technical issues with the software that have baffled me. But having Twitter open during sessions is an adequate replacement. It’s a great way to keep in touch with fans across the world as the action happens.
If you follow the @vee8 Twitter account, you may have seen that the avatar has changed to read: “MAX OUT! Save F1”. That is me playing my part in the campaign among some Twitter-using F1 fans to express opposition to the way Max Mosley runs Formula 1. There is an associated hashtag, #maxout.
I believe the trend for MAX OUT avatars was started by Twitter user @SarahAnnGreen. Since then, a variety of Twitter users have jumped on board the campaign. Oh, and if you’re wondering why we want Max Out, there is a pretty good explanation of one of the reasons over at F1 Fanatic.
Some of these avatars are used by more than one person, but here are the accounts I saw them at (from L-R):
