We?re less than two weeks away from the first official action of the 2009 F1 season.

We?ll be following every F1 session live on F1 Fanatic this year. Here?s how you can join in.

Participate

Every race weekend we?ll be running live blogs during each of the five F1 sessions. You can find details of upcoming sessions via the F1 live button at the top of the page.

During the live blogs we?ll have a team of commentators and moderators updating everyone on the action and managing the discussion. You can post comments, images and videos, vote on live polls and more.

Here’s an example of one of the live blogs from last year: Brazilian Grand Prix 2008 Live Blog

Commentate

Want to get involved in running the live blogs? If you can read a race well and type quickly, why not join in as a commentator?

We need eagle-eyed, race-savvy fans who can help us catch everything the television cameras and commentators miss.

If you?re interested in becoming a live blogs commentator get in touch with me using the contact details below.

Moderate

Last year we had 67,450 comments posted during the live blogs. With hundreds of fans participating not everyone can talk at once ?ǣthis is where the moderators come in.

We need passionate F1 fans with an appetite for discussion to help out running the live blogs. They need to ensure the best comments get posted and that everyone gets a chance to contribute.

We usually have a team of at least half a dozen moderators who work in a relay during the sessions, typically doing one stint of 20-30 minutes each in a session.

Share

If you run a website you can embed the F1 Fanatic Live Blogs and share the fun with even more fans.

Contact me for more information on how to do this.
