Accusations of teams fixing the Formula E #FanBoost system are emerging on social media today with Daniel Abt posting:

Calling out both the Renault eDAMs team and Dragon Racing for using automated ‘bots’ messages to artificially increase driver #Fanboost ranking ahead of the forthcoming Berlin ePrix.

Formula E modified the #Fanboost system for season two including social media messages through Twitter and Instagram in the count and leaving the count open for the opening laps of each race. The FIA and Formula E promoters have stated on numerous occasions that the Fanboost system can not be manipulated and all votes are genuine.

At the time of writing Dragon Racing’s Jérôme d’Ambrosio is leading the vote.
