Why Social Media Ranking for Formula 1 Drivers?

In today’s digitally connected world, when fans want to stay connected with their favorite Formula 1 teams and drivers both on and off the track, they are responding by using various social media channels to engage with their fans. These rankings are an effort to appreciate the most followed Formula 1 drivers and the bond they have with their fans. We try to look at this through some numbers and try to understand how some teams are actually using their on-track performance to build millions of unknown relationships across the world.

About the most popular Formula 1 drivers ranking

  • The rankings include the assessment of the social media performance of the 20 Formula 1 drivers that are participating in the 2021 season.
  • The social media channels from which followers are counted are Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.
  • The ranking is based on the total number of followers on social media for each driver. This total number is the sum of followers that each driver has on all the social media platforms mentioned above. This total number does not indicate unique followers as some followers would have followed a particular driver on multiple platforms.
  • The follower count was last captured on 17-Jun-21.
  • While our team has diligently tried to capture the most pertinent social media accounts of each driver (excluding any fan accounts) on a best effort basis, there might be errors in capturing account information or follower count. Please read the disclaimer for more details on this.
