FIA president says social media may destroy F1

Social media has the potential to “destroy” Formula 1, according to FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem. Anyone who has been on social media in recent months will attest to the toxic atmosphere, which according to Ben Sulayem took the form of death threats against FIA steward Silvia Bellot recently. The FIA president is therefore calling for a “collaborative approach” to tackle the social media “scourge”, with Ben Sulayem also getting in touch with some of the platforms. Ben Sulayem also said research is being commissioned, while new AI software will be able to “detect and eradicate abusive content on our own channels”.
