Mercedes drivers are sharing messages on social networks like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter that are seeking attention.
“We are not here for entertainment,” Mercedes CEO Dr. Toto Wolff said in an interview Thursday.
“We are here for the sake of our team and the safety of our drivers.”
Mercedes has been forced to make major changes to its safety record, including the removal of a safety device that can detect blood on a driver’s breath.
Mercedes says that safety system is no longer needed.
“This system can detect when there is blood in the breath, but we have a very good technology for detecting blood in air,” Wolff told CBC News.
“And we do not have a problem.”
But it is not enough to get drivers attention.
Many drivers say they are being targeted by other drivers who post comments in the hopes of attracting attention.
“Somebody wants to see if I’m a good driver,” said Mercedes driver Marcus Evers, who has been a frequent target of Facebook comments.
“I’ve seen other drivers in the news talking about how they want to see my name and my name in the papers and that kind of stuff.”
The comments can also lead to other people being targeted for a similar purpose.
“It’s kind of like when you see a picture of somebody who has cancer and it’s been shared thousands of times and the people that are trying to get rid of the cancer or to get somebody else off the road,” said Evers.
“So I think it’s kind like a bad form of bullying.”
Evers said that he and his teammates often feel the brunt of the social media bullying.
“At some point, it gets to the point where you’re thinking, ‘I’m just a normal person who’s just trying to do my job,'” he said.
“The bullying doesn’t just happen in the dark and it doesn’t happen behind closed doors.
You know, it’s out in the open.”
The latest data shows that a record 6.4 million people have posted comments on the carmaker’s Facebook page since the beginning of February.
The comments have been a popular source of debate on the social networking site.
In the first half of 2016, Mercedes posted more than 1.4 billion posts to the company’s social network, which is considered by many to be the most popular in the world.
Facebook recently updated its platform, removing the ability for users to block posts, but that hasn’t stopped people from posting comments.
Wolff says that Mercedes is taking steps to limit the impact of the comments.
“If you don’t have an account, then you can’t say anything on the page that’s not posted to a comment.
You can’t post anything that you don,t think you have a right to say,” he said, adding that Mercedes has set up an app to allow people to mute comments.
However, the app is still being developed, and it is unclear if it will be ready in time for the 2017 season.
Mercedes also has a social media policy that includes a ban on personal attacks and insults.
“To say something that’s offensive is an attack.
It’s an attack,” Wolf said.
While there are a number of social media platforms that have made it easy for drivers to comment, Wolff thinks the carmakers biggest success has been to get Mercedes to be part of the conversation.
“What we’ve done is created a network of the community,” he told CBC.
“A community of Mercedes owners that we’re part of, we’re friends with and we support each other.”
