2015 F1 Social Media Awards

Best fan art

By Marti Tucci | 2015 was filled with amazing highs and some terrible lows, but it did not disappoint overall… well, I suppose that depends on who you were cheering for. Social media proved once again to be the best place to get all your down-to-earth Formula 1 info, so with no further ado I bring you F1 Social Media Awards of the year, in no particular order, with no particular agenda.


Best quote:

Arnold Schwarzenegger landed the job of post-race interviews on the podium at the Australian Grand Prix. The Terminator received a small ribbing from World Champion Lewis Hamilton and delivered one of the best responses of the year.

Hamilton: “I thought you were taller”.
Schwarzenegger: “I’m not wearing my high heels”.

F1 social media had some very funny and witty memes this season. The series placing Fernando Alonso sun bathing picture was great. This one is my favourite – a kind of Formula 1 remix of the famous “Lunch atop a Skyscraper” photo:

Best social media trend

Social media assists us in so many ways nowadays, and it showed the Formula 1 world how we all felt about the death of Jules Bianchi. The outpouring of positive emotions and good vibes was heartwarming, and certainly a true honour to witness.
