Other racing series

Separate list for GP2, IndyCar and World Touring Car Championship teams and drivers can be found here:

Here are the official accounts of selected other racing series:

Auto GP
British F3
European F3 Open
Formula Ford
World Endurance Championship
World Series by Renault (including Formula Renault 3.5)

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. The ones that admit they are fakers are easy to spot and often very entertaining (like fakemarkwebber and fakemaxmosley).

But there are also some people pretending to run official accounts for drivers or teams. Here is a list of several prominent false accounts identified in early 2012.

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.

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

    As listed on the official Williams F1 website

  2. @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.

  3. 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:


      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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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 doesn’t 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?

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

    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.

  9. 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.

  10. @Kimi_Raikkonen is a fake account

  11. 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. ;-)

  12. 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


  13. 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…

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

  15. 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!


  16. 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.

  17. 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.

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

    confirmed by Lee McKenzie

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

  19. Justin Wilson changed his account to @JustinWilson22

    1. Wish people would stop doing that! Updated.
