Formula 1 is back!

Wednesday, 12 March 2014

Get excited, racing fans, because the Formula 1 (@F1) season is upon us — and there’s no better place than Twitter to stay connected to the upcoming racing season. Your high octane adventure kicks off in Melbourne on March 13th with the @ausgrandprix.

The drivers and teams have been preparing for months, and expectations ahead of the first race are high. With access to months of testing as well as the exclusive unveiling of the 2014 cars, fans on Twitter have already been behind the scenes:

With testing now over, the drivers can’t wait to get to Melbourne to put their vehicles into battle:

There is nothing like being trackside at a Formula 1 race — but if you can’t experience the thrill in person, Twitter is here to help.

Go behind the wheel and around the world with @F1 drivers, mechanics, engineers and other team members.

With Twitter you can discover what it’s like to be a professional athlete racing on the edge, a mechanic squeezing the very last ounce of speed out of a F1 car, an engineer tracking data, or a team traveling en masse around the world on the Formula 1 circuit.

Cheer on your favorite drivers throughout the entire season, follow along with the teams, and get involved and chat with fellow @F1 fans about the first race of the year in Melbourne using #AusGP.
