F1Fanatic Live Blogs: Malaysia

Here are all the details on the F1Fanatic Live Blogs for the Malaysian Grand Prix weekend covering practice, qualifying and the race.

What is it?

If you missed the F1Fanatic Live Blogs during the Australian Grand Prix weekend you can look back at them here: Australian Grand Prix Live Blog.

The live blogs allow you to share thoughts, opinions, comments and insights into what’s going on on the track as it happens with other readers of F1Fanatic.co.uk.

Why can’t we just use a regular blog post? Well I tried that and it crashed the site. During the race alone over 84 people joined in and posted over 1,100 messages, plus we ran live polls throughout the race, build-up and aftermath.

Best of all because people follow the coverage on different television stations and internet sites everyone is able to share information that different channels had missed. F1Fanatic Live Bloggers knew Rubens Barrichello was going to get disqualified a long time before James Allen and Martin Brundle did!

Wanted: moderators

Duncan from Doctorvee and Ollie from BlogF1 helped out with moderating last time – they did an excellent job but we will need some more help this time around.

If you want to lend a hand during either the race or qualifying or both please let me know below or via the contact form. It won’t stop you from being able to enjoy the race or the Live Blog as usual.


Look forward to seeing you online over the weekend! You can sign up for a reminder about each of the Live Blogs below.
