Formula 1 has announced the launch of the Drive It Out campaign which is aimed at combatting fan abuse.

The issue of fan abuse during race weekends was intensely discussed in F1 recently. The championship decided to take action and announced the launch of the Drive It Out program. Its goal is to eliminate any element of abuse from the sport.

“Formula 1 is all about competition and rivalries, but also respect. Respect as competitors. Respect for our fans. Respect for the whole F1 family,” the statement read.

“Abuse of any kind is not welcome online, or anywhere in F1.

“We are united and ask you all to join us in driving this out of all sport and society. We have a duty to call this out and say – “no more”.

“Those who hide behind social media with abusive and disrespectful views are not our fans. If you cannot be respectful, then don’t be part of our sport.

“Drive it out. Together.”
