UPDATED: Earlier today on @F1PaddockPass, I welcomed visitors to this website from the tiny island nation of Nauru. I get an update daily of people dropping by the website and today was the first time we were able to welcome someone from Nauru – well, not just someone, but three separate visitors.
So it got me to thinking, if we can get a visit from Nauru, why can’t we get someone from the tiniest nation on the earth to visit us – someone inside the Vatican City. Of course, I am a realist and can appreciate that the Pope has far better things to do than cruise the internet and read about Formula One (although if he did, he’d love us). So if you happen to know anyone who resides inside the Vatican City, do let them know that they could be the first – likewise for Antartica. Can polar bears work an iPhone? Anyway, I digress…
So far this year, F1PaddockPass.com has been visited by 136 nations. Considering that there are 196 recognized nations on the earth, F1 Paddock Pass has reached 69 percent of them. Incredible. We’ve been visited and read by all corners of the globe from Algeria to Zimbabwe – and put a tick in every alphabetical box along the way.
Statistics wise, we’ve been visited most this year by:
United Kingdom: 16, 697 unique visitors
United States of America: 14, 178 unique visitors
Australia: 12, 954 unique visitors
The least number of visitors come from Bhutan, Mozambique and Cape Verde – with just one visit a piece.
Of course, I can’t take the credit myself. There are now a team of people who contribute to the website and quite frankly, it wouldn’t be where it is today without them. They are a dedicated team of fans and contribute when life, work and vacation allow. They’re amazing and you can see who they are here.
So, is your country listed here? Well, quite probably yes. But if it isn’t it soon will be – but feel free to drop us a comment or an email and let us know where you’re from. The aim to is reach every square inch of the globe in 2017 and grow our audience to achieve the dream of 50,000 Twitter followers by the end of the year.
Finally, thanks to YOU for visiting.
