The struggle with the toxic behavior of Formula 1 on social media continues and appears to be far from over. What I believed to be an unfortunate mistake turns out to be intended harassment of social media users by Formula 1 and their service provider.
After my first publication, more than 100 people have reached out to me with similar experiences. Some even forwarded the responses from Formula1. And believe me when I say that none of this is pretty and what one would expect from an organization that says “UNLEASH YOUR POTENTIAL: DO THE RIGHT THING” on the first page of their code of conduct!
I have an important decision to make in this matter. I can of course let the lawyers handle this and force Formula 1 to compensate the damages they have caused. That will take a lot of time and at the end of the day it will be again only the lawyers who actually benefit from this.
I am however a community person, and the people in the community who have the courage to share their experiences with the toxic behavior of Formula 1 deserve a voice. A voice that exposes the abuse by a commercial organization throughout all networks.
My brain tells me to go for compensation of damages and costs, but my heart tells me to be the voice for the victims of Formula 1 on Social Media… I will let you know.
