Formula 1 fans who have access to BBM and a soft spot for Nico Rosberg should look out for a live Q&A this Thursday. The BBM app for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry can be used as the viewing platform for this event, with the F1 driver being available to chat to live via BBM channels.
BlackBerry are partners with the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team and are offering this special session to celebrate their newly launched BBM channels. Anybody who wants to take part and ask Rosberg a question through BBM can do so, there are only a few simple steps involved.
Firstly viewers must have the latest version of BBM downloaded, from there you should touch the menu button on the bottom left hand side of the app. Next you will need to select channels and search for ‘MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS’ or join using the BBM Channel PIN: C00011785, ensure that you enter the verified channel which can be identified with the blue tick.
All you need to do now is tap join+ and you will access the Q&A channel directly to your phone, if you are feeling lucky you can send your very own question to Rosberg. You will need to tune in to the event at 14:15 GMT (UK) with the best questions being selected and posted on the chat.
Naturally only so many questions can be answered so do not be too disappointed if your’s is not chosen. Because the BBM channel is operating one to one chats, the questions answered by the F1 driver will only be visible to the channel subscriber. Sadly Windows Phone owners will be missing out again as they will not be getting the BBM app until the summer.
Will you be tuning in to try and get your very own question answered by Nico Rosberg?
