The F1 community has come together with a new initiative named ‘Drive it Out’ which aims to flush out the various times of abuses.

Amid increase of online and even in-person abuses from fans side in the sport, F1 has come up with ‘Drive it Out’ as they have released a full video including drivers, Stefano Domenicali and Mohammed Ben Sulayem with a message.

The message talks about limiting the increasing abuses whether verbally or online amid polarising and divide among fans for their respective drivers and teams. F1 has stressed everyone to report tweets which results in hate especially online.

Here’s a message from F1:

“The Formula 1 community, including all twenty drivers, Stefano Domenicali and Mohammed Ben Sulayem, have come together to deliver a strong message to ‘Drive Out’ any form of abuse, online and at events, and call for greater respect. The video message released today recognises that while passion and competition is a very important part of our sport it can go too far, resulting in fans, journalists, presenters, and drivers receiving abuse both verbally and online.

“We are all sending a clear message that this isn’t acceptable and must end and those that continue to spread abuse and offensive comments are not welcome in our sport. We ask for your support in spreading this important message and all working together to Drive Out abuse in any form.”
