  • 1. F1 TEAM USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA February, 2014
  • 2. ABOUT THIS SLIDE DECK • This deck was prepared to illustrate the levels of adoption of social media by Formula 1 teams. The deck can provide a benchmark on social media usage at about one month prior to the first race of the 2014 season. • There are two slides for each metric. The first slide provides the data in rank order, largest to smallest, while the second slide provides the data in order of the team’s finish in the 2013 F1 Constructors Championship. • In addition to tracking all of the teams, the related sites from FIA F1 are included for no reason other than curiosity. • All data were collected during a four-hour period on February 12, 2014. • All registered marks and trademarks belong to their respective owners. No warranties or guarantees are provided. Use at your own discretion, please provide attribution to Bill Herring. Please direct any questions to billherring@icloud.com. • Copyright 2014 by Bill Herring. 2
  • 3. SOME OBSERVATIONS • One might be tempted to think the higher budget teams use the most social media channels, but that would be wrong. Caterham and Lotus make use of all eight channels measured in this study, while McLaren make do with six channels. • All of the F1 teams and FIA F1 use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn – with one exception. Marussia does not seem to have a team-managed presence on YouTube. There are Marussia-related videos on YouTube but there is not a formal Marussia teammanaged channel. • The top three finishers in the 2013 Constructors Championship happen to be the top three teams in number of Facebook Likes. However, Mercedes, which finished second in the championship, had the most number of Likes followed by Red Bull and Ferrari. 3
  • 4. MORE OBSERVATIONS • All teams utilize Twitter though there is a large disparity in number of Twitter Followers. Ferrari have a comfortable lead with more than 700,000 Followers while Toro Rosso have the fewest Followers at 133,000. Ferrari, McLaren, Red Bull, Mercedes and Lotus enjoy the top five Twitter followers whilst also making up the top five Constructors finishers. • There is an inverse relationship amongst the top four Constructor finishers and their usage of Twitter. Lotus, #4 in the championship, have the most Tweets at 31,400. This tapers down to 6,056 Tweets by champion team Red Bull. • Ferrari lead in terms of YouTube Subscribers and number of YouTube views, undoubtedly since they have a single YouTube channel for their production cars as well as the F1 team. If we ignore them, Red Bull, McLaren and Lotus are the top three teams in terms of YouTube Subscribers. • Ferrari, Red Bull and Mercedes enjoy the most number of Views on YouTube. 4
  • 5. MORE OBSERVATIONS • All of the teams have a Google+ site. Ferrari dwarfs the other teams in number of Google+ Followers due to their site serving the Ferrari production car business as well as the F1 team. Red Bull and McLaren complete the top 3 teams on Google+ with the remaining teams providing a small presence. • Amongst the photo-sharing sites Instagram, Flickr and Pinterest, Instagram has the most usage from nine of the 11 teams. Flickr and Pinterest are both used by five of the teams. Lotus and Caterham happen to use all three of the channels. • Red Bull, Lotus and McLaren are ranked 1, 2 and 3 respectively in terms of number of Instagram Followers. However, Lotus, Ferrari and McLaren have posted the most photos to Instagram. • The top three users of Flickr are Caterham, Ferrari and Sauber. • Lotus is the heaviest user of Pinterest, followed by Williams and Force India. 5
  • 6. FINAL OBSERVATION • Lastly, all teams have a presence on LinkedIn. Ferrari have the largest number of Followers on LinkedIn (128,000), again due to their presence representing the production car business as well as the F1 team. Leaving them to the side, the remaining teams have 22,000 Followers (McLaren) down to 800 (Sauber). • Forthwith, the charts…. 6
