Lewis Hamilton, McLaren, Silverstone, 2012Twitter has been in the F1 headlines recently, largely thanks to the indiscretions of Lewis Hamilton.

The F1 population on Twitter continues to swell, with almost every driver now using it.

On top of that there are dozens of team members from senior technical personnel to mechanics, the massed ranks of F1 media and growing numbers of former drivers and even a few ex-world champions.

F1 Fanatic maintains a list of genuine Twitter accounts for you to follow. Over 100 new accounts have been added in the most recent update. Find them all here:
