Lewis Hamilton is at the vanguard of the F1 drivers who use social media and digital tools to communicate with fans and in a special Facebook Live session on Saturday at 5-30pm Monaco time (4-30pm UK time) he will be speaking about his attitude to digital and answering fans’ questions.
The event will take place on the Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport Facebook page, so if you want to join you will need to head over there and like their page.
This is your chance to get a question answered as JA will be hosting the Facebook Live session and will take the best questions from here into the session.

Beyond discussing how F1 drivers can post images and thoughts to fans, the discussion will also take in broader topic of how far F1 can go down the road of digital transformation under the new management of Liberty Media as well as how the digital world impacts on modern F1 drivers in the way they perform on track.
The use of data to improve a car’s performance is well known, but how do drivers like Hamilton use data to improve their own human performance? What potential is there?
Hamilton will again be a judge – along with Ross Brawn and Martin Brundle among others – of the F1 Connectivity Innovation Prize, F1’s crowdsourcing initiative, which launches tomorrow.
The FCIP is a three way initiative involving F1 Management, Mercedes and Tata Communications, F1’s connectivity partner.
Now entering its fourth season, the FCIP sets real world challenges from the world of F1 for tech savvy fans to wrestle with and come up with solutions. Readers of the JA on F1 website have a strong track record in the competition and several winners of the overall US$50,000 top prize have come from the readership of this site.
This year’s finalists will be taken to the season finale Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, where they will go behind the scenes with F1 and Mercedes for the weekend and one of them will scoop the $50k.
We hope some of you will be able to maintain that proud tradition and get among the winners!
