LISSIE MACKINTOSH has taken F1 by storm and has been dubbed the “queen of the paddock” by her followers.
The F1 presenter has built up an impressive following on social media with many flocking to her page for content about the motorsport.
Lissie, 23, is a regular poster on Instagram and often uploads behind-the-scenes snaps from interviews with F1’s biggest stars.
She has managed to do interviews with drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris.
While she has 258K followers on Instagram it is not her biggest social media platform.
Lissie has amassed over 320K followers on TikTok with her videos gaining over 11million likes.
She also often receives comments hailing her as the “queen of the paddock” and the “It girl of F1”.
On the video platform, she also posts different content such as ‘get ready’ clips as she prepares for a grand prix.
She also hosts the Going Purple podcast in which she discusses the bigger and wider topics in F1.
She has loved the sport for a long time and started following during Lewis Hamilton’s era of domination.
In terms of creating content about the sport, she revealed that she wanted to create a community for like-minded people.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated in April, she said: “Formula 1 was changing a lot, and something was missing, even as a fan.
“I questioned why there was no community in this sport. There will always be a space for traditional media.
“It’s going nowhere, but where is the community aspect of it?
“I wanted to create this community and talk about Formula 1, but not in such a serious way for a serious sport.
“Ultimately, sport is entertainment, and it can be confusing.
“I thought, why not bring all those people together and do something that I think still needs to be done — bringing the sport to life by bridging that gap between sport and fan.”
Lissie has also been romantically linked to New Zealand motorsports driver Marcus Armstrong.
He used to compete in Formula 2 but is now starring in the NTT IndyCar Series with Chip Ganassi Racing.
