Formula 1 launches campaign to tackle online abuse

Formula 1 has launched a campaign to end abuse online and at events, in the wake of racist, sexist and homophobic incidents at the Austrian Grand Prix. Drive It Out will bring together drivers, teams and stakeholders to block and report abuse online. Mercedes driver George Russell, a director of the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association, said: “Abuse of any kind has no place in F1. F1’s actions will apply to any abuse witnessed of drivers, teams, fans, broadcasters or journalists. The move comes after a rise in abuse surrounding F1, both at events and online. In Austria last month, fans reported numerous incidents of abuse against minorities and women at the Red Bull Ring.
