Stefano Domenicali and F1 recently launched the “Drive it Out” campaign to raise their voice against the actions of misbehaving fans that have come to light at a few races this year.

Stefano Domenicali has blatantly dismissed misbehaving fans and has further indicated that there is no room for idiots in sport and wishes that their campaign is going to be productive.

During the Austrian Grand Prix, many reports of fan abuse came to light, and in the aftermath, F1 decided to come up with the Drive it Out campaign.

In accordance with the campaign, all 20 drivers along with Domenicali and FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem came up with a short video message that was put together and shared during the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend when the video of Max Verstappen fans setting fire to Lewis Hamilton merchandise circulated on the internet.

F1 does not endorse fan abuse and with the help of its campaign is trying to raise awareness about the delicate issue as much as possible because it is very easy to get away with such things when the crowds are huge.

Stefano Domenicali the Head of Formula One Group has recently while talking about the situation said, “There’s no discussion about this, no compromise. I think that it is a message that it was great to see that everyone embraced it immediately. I have to say the beauty of our sport is that we can control it.

As you can see back again on the grandstand, lots of kids, and lots of families, and it’s good to see different camps all mixed up. So that’s the real Formula 1 we want to see.”

With the Drive it Out campaign up and running in full force, F1 has urged the fans to report any kind of abuse to the security personnel and camera surveillance has also been stepped up in order to keep a close watch over fans going ahead into the season.

Domenicali has further added, “There’s no space for idiots in the world. Of course, if someone is behaving in a [bad] way, [the response is] gonna be very, very, very, very strong.”

The hierarchy at F1 has made it clear that going ahead into the season F1 will not tolerate any kind of abuse and that it will be in the best interest of misbehaving fans to stay at their homes rather than ruining the spirit of the sport by showing up for race events.

Everyone can change for the better and it is all about having the right mindset before heading out for events and being considerate of other people’s feelings. With the ‘Drive it Out’ campaign F1 has done the right thing and it will be interesting to see how fans are going to act during the remaining 9 races of the season.
