Inside Line F1 Podcast: F1 plans to go social

Kunal Shah and Mithila Mehta in their latest episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast discusses on Formula 1 embracing social media.

After years of ignoring social media and its power, it seems that F1 might just embrace it with a storm - a ‘Driver of the Day’ may be selected from this new media.

Mithila and Kunal tell you how cliched such ideas are and how F1 could push the limits on social media too.

Could fans choose what colour should Lewis Hamilton dye his hair next? Or who Pastor Maldonado should crash into [this podcast was recorded before Maldonado's announcement].

As we inch closer to 2016 season, there’s good news from many quarters of the sport. Pirelli finally seem to be making sense as Renault wonder if they need any more crash tests.

And we wonder if Felipe Massa’s retirement plans are to turn into a social media reporter.

Lastly, do you remember Robert Doornbos? He’s pushing the limits of technology too, albeit in a different industry.
