If you follow series other than Formula 1 remember to join the dedicated F1 Fanatic groups and forums for each of them.

How to get started on Twitter

You can get your free Twitter account at www.twitter.com. You can then follow the growing number of F1 drivers, teams and other personalities on Twitter.

If you’ve found a real F1 or other motor racing person or team on Twitter, please post details in the comments and I’ll add them to the list.

Are they real?

There are many fake F1 Twitter accounts. Here is a list of several prominent false accounts identified previously. As of the end of 2015 no authentic Twitter accounts exist for Sebastian Vettel or Kimi Raikkonen – those claiming to be are all fake.

If you’ve found a real F1 or other motor racing person or team on Twitter, please post details in the comments and I’ll add them to the list.

273 comments on “F1 Twitter directory”

  1. Keith, what about Autosport’s Jon Noble and his NobleF1?

    1. Added – thanks for the tip.

      1. and claire williams has changed her account to-
        http://twitter.com/WilliamsF1Team

  2. Thanks for the heads up on those, I’m now following a good chunk of them ;)

  3. Keith, is that the real vettel? This twitter vettel sounds to me more like a school boy.

    1. Seems a bit weird to me, too. I noticed he likes using a lot of exclamation points in his tweets. Been following him already, though I’m still awaiting for a solid confirmation it’s really him. Maybe the Red Bull F1 Spy can confirm this?

      1. Vettel hasn’t been verified. He’s also using a pic from his Torro Rosso days, doesn’t tally I’m afraid for me just yet, looks like a fake. Red Bull nor Sebastian Vettel have come out and said he has one, and until they do I’m taking it as a fake.

        1. It’s a bit odd indeed, but a set of replies to Button’s Twitter seems to indicate that it is real. Check a little lower on that page: it seems as if JB was also a bit suspicious about this as well. (JB’s profile was confirmed by Rubens and, as far as I know, the team as well…)

          1. Brawn/Button/Barrichello twitter accounts are from the Brawn website, so that’s a confirmation in itself I suppose…anyways I am looking forward for some of the accounts to be “Verified” by Twitter themselves…

    2. His tweets are getting odder by the tweet! Maybe he’s more excitable than we think.

    3. Vettel isn’t officially on twitter. Must be a fake otherwise we would of heard more about it!

  4. Oh i got the above list from official websites etc so they are all verified in my book.

  5. http://twitter.com/VisionRacing

    Vision racing from the IRL.

    There are tons of IRL drivers and media on Twitter. They’re all very active too!

    1. Keith,
      Your link to Sarah Fisher isn’t working. You left the “H” off of her name.

      The link is:
      http://twitter.com/SarahFisher67

      1. Fixed it, thanks.

  6. Thanks for the links guys have updated the list. Have marked the Vettel one to be confirmed. For media I’m going to stick to just listing journalists – if I put every single F1 site in there the list would quickly become enormous!

  7. The Massa twitter is not really his, it was made by his friends so that people could send messages of support

    1. Thanks, added.

  8. Have removed the Vettel one which turned out not to be him. Pity.

  9. Hey Keith

    There is Steve Slater as (steveslaterf1) Alex Yoong as (alextoong)

  10. So the Vettel one is definitely fake? Had big suspicions, but someone has checked with the real Seb?

    1. Yeah, it’s most likely fake. Got an email from the redbullracing.com saying: “…beware of some of those Twitters which claim to really be from young German drivers.”

  11. Do you know of NanoAlonso is the right one??

  12. Forza_Felipe is a tribute Twitter to Felipe Massa, not his own Twitter page.

    Link

    1. True, but Twitter lists it as a verified account for him.

  13. Anyone know if @NandoAlonso is fake?

    1. Seems fake! He does not interact with the the verified Nelson Piquet twitter account but rather nelsonpiquetjr2, he also prefers Sebas_Vettel (who is making sweeping statements against Briatore And Symonds) It is a fake!

    2. Yes. It’s fake.

    1. That didn’t work as planned…

      What I meant to say was http://twitter.com/fake_hamilton is obviously fake, but very funny!

  14. Also our GP2 team: http://twitter.com/oceanracingtech

    The tweets are in portuguese though.

    1. Thanks Ruben, added to the list.

  15. @nicorosberg is also on Twitter. I think that is him and it is interesting to follow him as his nutritionist (Robin Lindsay – @robinlinds ) is posting updates on his account during races – mainly what she hears on team radio…

  16. It looks like Ted Kravitz has joined now too, but no official confirmation yet:

    http://twitter.com/tedkravitz

    1. Don’t think it is Keith. His knowledge on Twitter isn’t up to his usual, sharp, self.

      1. That one’s in the ‘maybe’ pile too.

  17. New F1 driver added

    Nico Rosberg is now on the list:

    http://twitter.com/NicoRosberg16

    The account appears to have been started for the purposes of running a competition, but hopefully we’ll start to see some proper Tweets from Rosberg himself too.

    1. Jacob Molenkamp
      10th October 2009, 9:30

      I follow that NicoRosberg16 as well but thought this is done by Philips Brasil for the upcoming GP only.

      Further I follow http://twitter.com/Mansell5

      which I did not see in your directory.

      1. They’ve done a few non-competition related Tweets, let’s see if they do any proper Twitter stuff once the content is over.

        I’ve had a look at the Mansell one before but I haven’t seen any indication it’s genuine. Have you?

        1. Jacob Molenkamp
          10th October 2009, 13:47

          I don’t know either if the Mansell one is genuine, their haven’t been any tweets since August but it has a lot of followers

  18. What about @Kimi_Raikkonen (http://twitter.com/Kimi_Raikkonen)? Is it real? He’s got 12,166 subscribers including Nico Rosberg.

    1. I’ve had a look and I can’t see any indication it’s real.

  19. Twitter is ideal for Mansell and Raikkonen – at least you don’t have to listen to them…

    Usually worth a listen, in my opinion, is@MauriceHamilton – have you come across him yet?

    1. Thanks, added him!

  20. Hi there,

    just to say that the Ivan Capelli you placed isn’t the real one. It’s actually a Brazilian journalist, ho happens to have the same name…

    Quite a coincidence, hen?

    1. And he uses an avatar that looks like Capelli in the Leyton House!

      Oh well, I’ll strike him from the list.

    Ben Spies – @BenSpies11
    Bradley Smith (125cc) – @BradleySmith38

    1. Sort of related: Mike Conway. Seems legit, he has interacted with Tomas Scheckter. Worth an add?

    Some suspects to check:

    Jacque Villeneuve: @27villeneuve
    Robert Kubica: @fakeRobKubica

    Martin Brundle: @fakeMartinB (funny!)
    Eddie Jordan: @fakeEJ
    David Coulthard: @fakeDC
    Flavio: @fakeflav

    Funny, but I think fake:
    @FakeAlonso
    @fakeschumacher

    Cheers from Holland,
    Jeroen

  25. ex Ensign F1 driver, ex Top Gear presenter, ex 5th Gear presenter – Tiff Needell

    Not verified as yet but I’ve been following for a while and seems reasonable that it realy is him, whadayathink?

  26. Epic fail on last post, lets try again

    http://twitter.com/tiff_tv

    1. Thanks Damian, added.

  27. Toby Fernandes :L

  28. You know the driver accounts that start with the word ‘fake’, they are… FAKE! They don’t pretend to be real and are often pretty funny.

  29. Martin Whitmarsh seems to have started tweeting too, his photo is classic!

    http://twitter.com/fakewhitmarsh

  30. Hi here’s a driver you could add to your directory. 2003 Le Mans winner Guy Smith @GUYSMITH16 Now driving with Dyson Racing In the ALMS.

  31. A few IRL teams and drivers you don’t have listed are on Twitter as well. I think you could actually make a seperate IRL listing because almost every driver on the grid uses Twitter…I’ll only post the most interesting ones though.

    @RyanBriscoe6
    @scottdixon9
    @EJVISO
    @RyanHunterReay
    @mariomoraesindy
    @jsummerton
    @penskeracing
    @DRRIndyCar
    @PantherRacing
    @kvracing

    1. Great stuff – all added. The Indy Car guys are really good for this.

  32. i think the Mercedes GP link is still directed to the Brawn one. Try http://twitter.com/OfficialMGP

    1. Fixed, thanks.

  33. Jonathan Legard: http://twitter.com/legardj

    Confirmed by the guys from 5Live F1.

  34. Williams F1: http://twitter.com/ClaireVWilliams/

    As listed on the official Williams F1 website

  35. @hollysamos seems a goner? found @hopintung but he seems lazy. anyone in Valencia give him a shout please?

    1. I think Holly Samos is on maternity leave, would explain the radio silence.

  36. Felipe, told us in his on-line chat, at Ferrari, that he does not have a twitter account! :)

    1. Seems he’s not actually going to use the account that was set up for him, which is a pity. I’m taking it off the list, it hasn’t been updated by November:

      http://twitter.com/Forza_Felipe

      If he’s not actually using it, it shouldn’t be a “Verified” account really.

      1. It was used, though, during the karting event last December. I think it’s actually his manager or brother who was posting on it.

        Felipe could be making better use of it, really.

  37. what about indian journalist Raja Sen at @rajasen? witty, powerful f1 commentary.. even though he mostly writes about films and other stuff, his #f1 tweets are the stuff of legend, especially when he livetweets a race.

    1. Interesting suggestion – I’ll follow him for a bit and then decide, don’t want to recommend him if he’s not doing much F1 stuff.

  38. Hey Keith – I’ve set up a Twitter list, with most of the F1 related people above. You can subscribe to this so you don’t have to click through all of the links above, and still get all the tweets. Click here: http://twitter.com/#/list/40_thieves/f1

  39. Lewis Hamilton on Twitter. Looks genuine going by the Twitpic pictures of Lewis and his brother Nic. http://twitter.com/LewisHamiltonF1

    Holly Samos link does not appear to be working! “Sorry, that page doesnt exist!” error message.

    Not got @5liveF1 listed!

    1. Doesn’t look very real to me. Appalling grammar and spelling as well (I know he’s not William Wordsworth but still) and random snaps…

    2. Looks fake. Perhaps we should have a list of known fakes as well to stop people getting confused?

  40. Almost F1 Driver Perry Mcarthy, his book is well worth a read as well.

    @Original_Stig

  41. Hi Keith,

    Just read a blog post from Joe Saward (http://joesaward.wordpress.com/2010/02/12/the-return-of-team-lotus/) where he mentions (2nd paragraph) that Mike Gascoyne is also using twitter.

    I searched it and came out with http://twitter.com/MikeGascoyne

    BTW, brilliant live coverage from Jerez :-)

    1. Cheers Antonio, added him to the list.

  42. It looks like the Lotus Twitter account you have listed doesnt work. A quick check of the Lotus Racing website says their Twitter account is @MyLotusRacing.

    1. Fixed, thanks xintelinsanex.

  43. @Kimi_Raikkonen is a fake account

  44. Hi Keith,

    Just a note about Nico Rosberg’s twittwer account, which in fact was created for “a promotion from Philips Consumer Lifestyle Brazil”. At least that’s what it says in the last tweet made, back in October, at the time of the Brazilian GP. ;-)

  45. Hi Keith,

    How about @sschaumloeffel ? She appears to be the Lotus F1 team press officer. I.e this cracker of a tweet: http://twitter.com/sschaumloeffel/status/9228062966

    Martin

  46. http://twitter.com/OfficialMercedesGP doesn’t seem to exist…
    Even @jakehumphreyF1 doesn’t seem to know what the real one is though. @MGP doesn’t look right…

  47. Another non F1 driver for the list – http://twitter.com/augustofarfus
    Augusto Farfus (WTCC).
    (linked to on his official website)

  48. Mark Webber is now on Twitter — @AussieGrit

    1. Am trying to find out if it’s real. Can anyone offer and proof?

      1. Have contacted a chap within the team to inquire. Shall let you know.

        1. Confirmed.

          Strange, of all the drivers, I thought Webber would be the least likely to join Twitter!

      2. @redbullf1spy has confirmed the identity @AussieGrit and it is indeed Webbo!

        http://twitter.com/redbullf1spy/status/9671253240

  49. Hi Keith

    I noticed you weren’t sure about @tedkravitz. He is real, I had confirmation from @5livef1 a while ago, and I think another of the BBC team confirmed it recently.

    Sarah (@soggous)

    1. Thought I’d added him a while ago – will fix that now.

  50. Hi Keith,

    Lee McKenzie changed her twitter username so the link you have no longer goes to her page.

    She’s now http://twitter.com/LeeMcKenzieF1

    1. Changed, thanks Kate.

  51. Renger van der Zande is on Twitter, @Rengerzzz

    confirmed by Lee McKenzie
    http://twitter.com/LeeMcKenzieF1/status/9967410538

    1. Thanks CC, he’s on the list now.

  52. Justin Wilson changed his account to @JustinWilson22

    1. Wish people would stop doing that! Updated.

  53. Good evening Keith! http://twitter.com/realTimoGlock

    I think it is the real Timo Glock, because he post same stuff on his official FB as show up as tweets on twitter.

    1. Thanks for the tip I’ll have a look.

    2. Yep looks like it is him!

  54. hey!!

    what about the cool and good kart driver Brad Brunner http://www.twitter.com/bracula ?

  55. Former F1 pilot Derek Daly – http://twitter.com/DerekDaly500

    1. Can you delete this post? I am not exactly on the field like the others.

  56. Hi! Keith and everyone, just saw this on BBC Sport F1 Live Bahrain GP qualifying… http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/motorsport/formula_one/8564532.stm

    It has a post from Fernando Alonso on twitter @NandoAlonso http://twitter.com/NandoAlonso

    1. I don’t see anything on that page linking to that account, and I don’t see any other indication that account may be genuine.

  57. Jarred Walmsley
    25th March 2010, 4:44

    You might want to either remove or shift USF1 to the old teams list

    1. True, but they are still officially entered in this year’s championship and they may yet have something to say via their Twitter account so I’ll leave it on there in the meantime.

      1. Jarred Walmsley
        25th March 2010, 8:27

        Fair enough, giving them a bit more benefit of the doubt then I personally would give them but what you said makes perfect sense. Do StefanGP have an account?

        1. In their death throes the only place we heard from USF1 was on Twitter.

          I’m not aware Stefan GP has an account and last time I looked their website wasn’t there either.

  58. I would like to suggest that you add former A1GP champion and Swiss driver Neel Jani ( @neeljani ) to the directory too , under non-f1 racing drivers. And Also former Jordan/ Williams driver Narain Karthikeyan (now racing in NASCAR Trucks) is also there ( @narainracing )

    1. Added them, thanks cholle.

  59. Also, Nico Rosberg’s finally got his own Twitter: http://twitter.com/nico_rosberg

    Now you can replace the old one from the promo by Philips Brazil ;)

    1. Indeed he is – added now.

    Brad Spurgeon from the NYTimes.

  61. Are you aware of 2003 Le Mans winner for Bentley Guy Smith Is on twitter now competing in the ALMS ( @GUYSMITH16)

  62. Shouldn’t USF1 be moved to the former teams list at this point? They officially laid everyone off yesterday…

  63. I would make a category for “F1 Team Staff” or something similar to put people like Mike Gascogne and Tony Fernandes in. They are more relevent than a few of the current categories for people wanting inside info on F1.

  64. Hey Keith, you can add @StefanGP… It’s the official Twitter of the team => http://www.stefangp.com. Thanks for this directory, all the best.

    1. Added – thank you!

  65. You can create the “F1-Team Ghosts” category with USF1 ! ;)

    1. Is it official?

    1. She was originally in the ‘journalists’ list, have moved her over.

  68. really good work
    hope to see Vettel on there soon.

  69. @vitalypetrovru does not belong to Vitaly.
    Somebody is tweeting his status on tracks there.

    1. Is this not his official website then?

      http://www.vitalypetrov.ru/en

      1. Huh.
        Didn’t see it there.
        Site seems to be official. It has Vitaly’s blog.

        Still, there is no word from Vitaly on @vitalypetrovru.

      2. Site is registered by Oksana P Kossatchenko.
        That’s his manager as far as i know.

  70. Hi Keith,

    FYI, @ClaireVWilliams is now @WilliamsF1Team.

    I have an interesting proposition for you, follow me @Global_GP OR send me a mail in order that I give you my personal phone number.

    All the best

  71. Hey Keith,

    Jos Verstappen – @VerstappenFans

    Eddie Irvine – @eisports

    Tomas Enge – @astonmartin007

    Won’t be missing out on much if they are not followed really!

    1. Thanks for those Ubaid, the Irvine one just seems to be for his kart track though so I won’t add that one.

  78. Ubaid Parkar
    12th July 2010, 8:04

    @emmastonier ‘s tweet says she spoke to Martin Brundle who confirmed that Blundell account is a fake…

    1. Ubaid Parkar
      15th July 2010, 11:20

      Sorry. I messed up here. It’s Brundle’s account that is fake. Blundell is real

  79. You are missing Sepang Circuit it seems under the circuit category

        10th October 2010, 13:06

        Rodolfo Gonzalez has since changed his Twitter name: @RSpeedyGonzalez. He’s also following a Pastor Maldonado (@Pastormaldo) but I can’t find proof of it being a genuine account.

    1. Another great one, thanks Ubaid!

  84. Could this be Renault’s Eric Boullier? It’s been recommended for me to follow by Twitter (I think it’s a new feature):

    http://twitter.com/eboullier

    Account seems fairly new, and no tweets from it yet.

  85. What about Fernando Alonso’s twitter page?

    http://twitter.com/NandoAlonso

    1. Can someone check to verify this account?

  86. This seems to be the Korean GP’s official account: http://twitter.com/Korean_GP

    Pirelli – http://twitter.com/Pirelli_Media

  91. http://twitter.com/LewisHamiltonF1

    Is this a fake,.. quite surprised as there are family pics on there! Don’t want to intrude if someone is actually selling him out x

    1. Yes it is fake.

    1. Thanks for that one cholle.

  92. Andy Soucek does not belong to Virgin Racing anymore.

  93. Hi Keith !
    I have a suggestion for your F1 Twitter directory.

    @GregoryHainesF1 http://twitter.com/#!/GregoryHainesF1
    GPUpdate.net F1 editor – English news and video voiceovers

    I recomend all to follow him, he is a very nice guy
    and got a lot of good news about F1/Motorsport.

    Kind regards,
    Mia

    1. Yup. He is recommended

  94. Just noticed something odd Keith, @Forza_Felipe appears to be active again and the profile now says that its Massa’s personal account. Might be worth looking in to.

    1. It’s an odd one because as I understand it was set up for him while he was in hospital to update people on his progress, so it was given ‘verified’ status, but he didn’t use it after he left hospital. Whether it’s now him posting on it I don’t know but the fact his background image appears to by copy-pasted from the “F1 2010” computer game leaves me suspicious. One to keep an eye on.

      1. Yeah, thats what confused me too because it doesn’t look very convincing ,but if its not him then I’m not sure who it could be, given that the account was set up by friends.

      2. If I remember correctly, it’s Felipe’s brother Dudu Massa who was handling this account before. Maybe it’s still his brother tweeting there?

  95. http://twitter.com/Jules_Bianchi

    Jules Bianchi
    James Allen confirmed on his Twitter account

  96. http://twitter.com/alanvdm

    Alan van der Merwe – the medical car driver

  97. @iamlewis4real is Hamilton according to @TheFifthDriver.

    1. Just added it :-)

  98. Indian GP official accnt @IndianGP

  99. Cristophe Malbranque – twitter.com/F1AlaUne

    Kubica – twitter.com/realrobkubica

    1. I haven’t seen anything to indicate that ‘Kubica’ account is legit, have you?

  100. @Mallesh
    The @IndianGP account is not the official account.

    I confirmed with the Jaypee guys and they referred me to @JPSIsports

    1. Thanks again Ubaid, added to the list.

    i believe that forza_felipe is felipe massa himself

  102. for spanish media you shoud incude @AlejandroBurger from Venezuela, he’s very good and even more now with Pastor Maldonado in F1 for next year!

  103. Jaime Alguersuari’s just changed his Twitter username from @JAIMEALGUERSUAR to @SQUIRE3. Kid’s having too much fun, methinks!

  104. Jenson has renamed his to @JensonButton

    do you think we should have a page where f1fanatic’s users can share their twitter accounts?

    1. and Alguersuari’s is now @Squire3

  105. Not really sure if it’s 100% confirmed, but a posted photo suggests so.

    Mario Andretti is apparently now on Twitter.

    http://twitter.com/#!/MarioAndretti

  106. Sergio Perez twitter account is http://twitter.com/checoperez17
    please change it

  107. is @checoperez17, not @checoperez11

  108. http://twitter.com/#!/alex_wurz

    Result of a few minutes of persuasion work by Anthony Davidson before today’s Peugeot LMP1 car launch, confirmed by Ant.

  109. @alex_wurz

  110. autosportlive would be a great account to add (or perhaps I missed iton the list!)

  111. PDLR is now on Twitter.

    @PedrodelaRosa1

    Confirmed by Alex Wurz’s feed… and yeah, Alex is on his way to turning into a Twitter maniac. :)) Maybe we’ll see Alex tweeting from his Peugeot at Le Mans during practice.

  112. think i had suggested that too earlier

  113. Does sniffpetrol count? :)

  114. Hi I’m Mike Sheppard and I am a member of the media working in F1 (clients include BBC). I also do the communications role for 20-time British Touring Car Champions Triple Eight Race Engineering. Many F1 fans will know of our Chairman Ian Harrison and Sporting director Les Jones (both ex-Williams). For anybody interested in following us we have recently set up a twitter account. It is @official888race

    Everybody is welcome to follow us – the more, the merrier!

  115. Lewis Hamilton is http://twitter.com/#!/LewisHamilton not the one listed above I believe?

    1. He’s changed it some time recently, I believe, that was the one he signed up with.

      In terms of non-F1 open-wheel drivers… another account: a certain cousin of Paul di Resta, mr. D. Franchitti.

      http://twitter.com/#!/dariofranchitti

  116. Hi Keith,

    PR director at HRT is @AlbaSaiz

  117. Sorry, messed up my message;

    (Dutch TV) = Olav Mol

    (Dutch TV) = Allard Kalff

    (Dutch TV) = Rick Winckelman

    (FIA WTCC) = Tom Coronel

  118. Mclaren/Jenson’s physio is @mikeycollier . I only know this because Jenson referred to him today in a tweet!

  119. Alguersuari seems to have changed his account to @AlguersuariJA

  120. Dunno who would see this but is there a directory for facebook? Just that I never use twitter…

    1. Not at present, could potentially do one in the future.

      But to be honest most teams and drivers just seem to use Facebook as an extension of the websites and post pretty much the same content on there. In my experience, you get far more immediate and original material from them on Twitter.

      1. On race weekends and when I’m near a computer I check out the live blog for twitter updates. Just be nice to have a bit more team based stuff in the one place. But yeah I see what you mean about the content.

  128. thanks

  129. Keith; the entry for Lee Stevenson points to a twitter guy called Elliot Dason-Barber rather than Lee Stevenson? Says he’s at Lotus too.

    I love Rubens profile pic..

  131. Might be worth keeping an eye on the @danielricciardo account in the near future…

    1. Well I tried to give the scoop to F1f but no go :(

      @damonsmedley was the one who actually managed to make contact with RBR so the details could be handed over (I originally registered the acct) so it’s pretty funny that Gregory from GPupdate has been claiming success in all this when it should go to Damon!

  132. Daniel Ricciardo has joined his team mate on twiiter … @danielricciardo

  133. The link on “Lee Stevenson – Mechanic of RB” @leestevo1 is leading to @edb_teamlotus

  134. David Coulthard is @therealdcf1

    And he is currently tweeting from the Rush film set where he is technical adviser on teh Ron Howard film.

  138. I believe Ferrari’s Head Press Officer Luca Colajanni is now on Twitter: @lcolajanni. No official confirmation that I know of, but he has tweeted a photo that shortly afterwards appeared on the official Ferrari account. (Ta to @cmckinleyF1 for the initial heads up!)

  139. I think @Mic_Schumacher is Michael Schumacher’s, going by what’s in his tweets.

    1. Okay maybe it isn’t – but I’m on there :-)

  140. Massa is now on Twitter. @felipe1massa

    You have ”Ed Aylwin” twice in Red bull, but wow, that makes many poeple to follow

  145. Ed Aylwin in Red Bull list is duplicated – appears twice.

    1. Thanks for that – have updated it.

  146. Your link for Gutierrez is a news/PR account, his personal account is here https://twitter.com/EstebanGtz

    1. Thanks, have changed it.

  147. Thanks for the update, Keith! I sure wish I could put a dollar for you in PayPal every time I thought that. Then, you’d be able to take your private jet to all the races, ha!

  148. Keith,

    Williams Team Manager Dickie Stanford is on twitter @dickiestanford and also Dom Reilly (former Commercial Manager at WiliamsF1 now team supplier) @DominicReilly1 if of interest.

    John

  149. I notice that Kimi Raikonnen’s Twitter account is not listed on this page. I am following Raikkonen at @The_Iceman7. This account is followed by @Lotus_F1Team, so I assume it’s legitimately Kimi.

    1. @billy59824 It isn’t, that’s a fake account.

  150. Please add twitter.com/airtelf1

    Airtel is the official event sponsor of F1 in India

    Thanks,

  151. @sirotkin_sergey is also an office twitter: They tweeted: Sauber F1 Team‏@OfficialSF1Team27 Aug
    Our bad, @RedHotBad – thanks! Official account is, of course, @sirotkin_sergey #HappyBirthdaySergey

  152. Just a few i’ve come across in recent time

    @GaryintheUK is Max Chilton’s race engineer
    @RandySingh86 is team strategist at Williams
    @Gsimmo66 is race co-ordinator at Lotus
    @Marc_Hynes is at Marussia, i think he’s tied in with driver development or something along those lines
    @brrrake is di Resta’s performance engineer

  153. Does anyone know if “@KevinMagnussen” is the official account of the new McLaren driver?

    1. No it isn’t, he’s not on Twitter at the moment.

  154. Hi, I know that Sebastian Vettel didn’t have a twitter some time ago, but this year I heard in more than one interview that he wasn’t a celebrity because he has 0 followers at twitter, this means he has a twitter! But I really can’t find it, can anyone help me?

    1. I think you’ll find he was joking!

  155. The official Williams Martini Racing Twitter account is now @WilliamsRacing

  156. Hey Keith, sorry it’s been a while! Nigel Mansell’s verified Twitter account is @nigelmansell . I have a feeling our Nige doesn’t speak Russian :)

  157. What about @randysingh86 posts good photos and info and is strategy at McLareb.

  158. Marussia are now @ManorF1Team

  159. The link to Nico Hülkenberg’s twitter account leads to a (probably wrong) private account. His official account is @HulkHulkenberg (https://twitter.com/HulkHulkenberg).

  160. The twitter accounts of the Manor Marussia drivers are also missing:

    @robertomerhi (https://twitter.com/robertomerhi)
    @AlexanderRossi (https://twitter.com/AlexanderRossi)
    @WillStevens_ (https://twitter.com/WillStevens_)
