F1 announces partnership with Snap to reinforce presence on social media

"So, we think we are really helping to develop the next generation of fans".

"We want a deal for a British Grand Prix", the American former ESPN vice-president of sales and marketing added. The incident caused a stir in some sections of the traditional media, who felt Hamilton should have been focusing on the press conference itself rather than his phone.

Speaking at the Formula 1 Live event in London on Wednesday, Khan said that he would be willing to talk to Formula 1 owners Liberty Media about hosting a race in the British capital city, and although he admits that there would still be some hurdles to overcome, he sees no reason why London cannot host the British Grand Prix down the line. I was team-mates with three different world champions, in three different teams, and the politics involved and the ducking and diving that happened was so immense. "Patrick Head was at the height of his engineering skills, he was such a brilliant robust person who ran the engineering department like a general", he says.

The deal, announced on Thursday, opens the door to Snapchat offering real time coverage of Formula 1 grands prix events alongside other media broadcasters. The contract the BRDC signes was a strong-arm move by Ecclestone and everyone knew it. His support from the fans, however, was unqualified and reflected their admiration for a career in which he went wheel to wheel with Alain Prost, Keke Rosberg, Ayrton Senna and Nelson Piquet.

Jolyon Palmer is looking forward to driving in front of his home crowd as the Formula 1 circus returns to Silverstone once again. "Then in the race you had world champions racing together".

Bratches emphasised that Silverstone would remain on the calendar at least until 2020 - this year's grand prix is on Sunday - but insisted that alternative British tracks were under consideration. The breadth of competition was wide.

"We need to continue to bring new fans to the sport - by reaching out to them on social media platforms with behind the scenes, fun and engaging content. Snap's platform is one of the most popular among 'millennials, ' a sector we are particularly keen on attracting, as it represents the future of our sport". I'm sure somehow we will find a way of signing a new contract, ' Warwick told Sky Sports. "In between everything the overall memory is what a fantastic opportunity it was, how grateful I was to the sponsors, engineers, mechanics and tea ladies". As for current drivers, Hamilton leads everyone with four wins at Silverstone.
