F1 : #FOTAFORUM FANtastic Succuss – Live Video Replay And Notes
On Wednesday November 14th, a Fan FOTA Forum was held in Austin Texas, USA. The US GP at Circuit Of The Americas hosts the penultimate round of the F1 championship.
For those of you that were unable to attend the event or would like to watch it again, here is the link http://new.livestream.com/Dell/fota/archives
I wasn’t planning on doing a review of the forum, many sites have done it already and it has been an active topic of discussion on social media in F1 circles.
From a Formula One fan point of view, I think FOTA making the effort to put on these Fan Forums is fantastic. There was a lot of fan participation, it was a trending topic on social media and very entertaining above all. Oliver Weingarten (FOTA Secretary) has done a wonderful job along with partners DELL to make this available to fans around the world through a live video stream.
There were some technical glitches with the sound, but it proved nothing more than a slight annoyance. A pat on the back for all involved, especially Host Will Buxton, for whom there was no shortage of love in the room. Great panelists, great questions and and answers helped make the event a success.
Even our good friend Fake Charlie Whiting (@charlie_whiting) was on hand. When he was selected to ask a question, he received a round of applause from the crowd.
One final note, My favorite and most entertaining guests in my opinion were Heikki Kovalainen, David Hobbs, and Alexander Rossi.
