Webber wins in the dying seconds

8 Jul

The tweet review GB 12

“my man to watch? Sergio Perez, he was impressive yesterday and he generally keeps the car on the track, expect him in the points” (@formula1formula) after good picks in Canada and Valencia much is expected of Perez.

“the grid today (1->24): ALO WEB SCH VET MAS RAI MAL HAM GRO DIR ROS RIC SEN HUL PER BUT KOB PET KOV GLO DLR KAR VER PIC” (@formula1formula)

“the penalties for the grid are: KOB (5 places: collision), VER (10 places: collision), HUL and PIC (both 5 places: gearbox)” (@formula1formula) there were lots of changes between qualifying positions and grid places.

“Neither Ferrari driver has dropped a position on the opening lap in 2012, so it’s unlikely that Alonso will be passed at turn one.” (@virtualstatman)

“Looks like Petrov won’t be starting.” (@f1fanatic_co_uk) Due to an engine problem on his route to the grid Petrov had to pull out.

“Before the red lights go out, I want to dedicate my first tweet of the race to wishing nothing but all the best to @mariavillota” (@F1PitRadio)

“Hello, I’m the British weather and I’m going to play with your mind today” (@EliGP) after torrential rain on friday and saturday the race conditions were surprisingly pleasant.

“another man worth looking out for in the race is nico hulkenburg who I expect to finish in the points today” (@formula1formula)

“Nothing excites me more than alternative tyre strategy :D” (@aqsasformula) with Alonso the only driver in the top 5 to start on hard tyres the race was expected to be a corker.

“Alonso chops wickedly across Webber into Turn 1 and holds the lead ahead of the Australian and Schumacher is third. ” (@autosportlive)

“Paul di Resta has a puncture” (@f1fanaticlive)

“DIR is out.” (@F1Kate) after a collision with Grosjean on the first lap Paul Di Resta had to retire from his home GP.

“Lap 7/52: ALO WEB MSC MAS VET RAI MAL HAM PER SEN HUL KOB BUT ROS VER RIC KOV GLO DLR KAR GRO PIC” (@RichlandF1)

“not only is Alonso pulling away from Webber but he’s on the slower tyre compound” (@formula1formula)

“not being funny here but it looks like the hards are faster than the softs, Grosjean is setting the pace on them and Alonso is pulling ” (@formula1formula)

“Felipe Masa makes a great move on Schumacher to move into 3rd!” (@ausgrandprix)

“Perez and Maldonado collide! That’s the Sauber’s race over, and Maldonado will need to pit. Yellow flags” (@RichlandF1)

“Maldonado seems to be attracted to #F1 car bodywork, no?” (@JackLeslieF1)

“A McLaren pit-stop with no errors??? Miracles do happen!!” (@pubsilverstone)

“Hamilton leads but is yet to pit whilst Alonso reels him in” (@formula1formula)

“This is beautiful between Alonso and Hamilton” (@rookief1)

“looks like Hamilton is going to be the only man to try a 1 stop strategy” (@formula1formula)

“And Ferrari speaking Italian to Alonso. Thought radio transmissions were supposed to be in English” (@easonF1)

“Lap 22/52 Current Top 10: ALO WEB VET MAS MSC RAI HAM GRO KOB and HUL” (@F1_Raymond_F1)

“McLaren are the only team in this race so far to have both their stops for BUT and HAM under 3 secs!” (@F1_Fans_Updates) contrary to previous races McLaren proved to be the best in the pit stops.

“Perez: “We are risking our lives and [Pastor Maldonado] has no respect”” (@wtf1couk)

“midway point in the race current standings: ALO WEB VET MAS RAI HAM SCH GRO KOB HUL SEN BUT ROS RIC VER KOV GLO MAL DLR PIC KAR” (@formula1formula)

“I’m no expert but I guess that the reason the hards are faster than the softs is due to the lack of rubber on track” (@formula1formula)

“Hamilton is going to have to don 23 laps on the hards, his first stint on hards was 22 laps so it’s possible” (@formula1formula)

“BUT isn’t having a great season, is he? Sigh.” (@F1Kate)

“Wish it would rain at #SILVERSTONE. Deep irony there” (@easonF1)

“Victims of Maldonado this season: Grosjean in Melbourne, De la Rosa in Monaco, Hamilton in Valencia & Perez en Silverstone. ENOUGH!!” (@thereal_SJF)

“Lap 37 Alonso into the pits and rejoins back in the lead” (@F1_Fans_Updates)

“Lap 37 Alonso into the pits and rejoins back in the lead” (@F1TimesLive)

“Alonso is looking pretty tasty for the WDC right about now, isn’t he? Good driving, consistent points, and 12 laps shy of 3 wins.” (@F1Kate)

“10 laps remaining and standings are: ALO WEB VET MAS RAI GRO HAM SCH HUL SEN BUT KOB VER RIC ROS MAL KOV GLO PIC DLR KAR” (@formula1formula)

“1.3 the gap, DRS will be available soon. Alonso needs to pull something out of the bag soon otherwise he’ll lose the lead” (@RichlandF1)

#silverstone “hey, @AussieGrit, do you want to be my team-mate next year or what!” @alo_oficial” (@legardj)

“Webber gets past Alonso for the lead.” (@F1TimesLive)

“Come on Webber. He gives 50% to HMRC so he’s the most British driver in the race as far as I’m concerned..” (@therealtopper)

“RESULT: WEB ALO VET MAS RAI GRO MSC HAM SEN BUT” (@RichlandF1)

“driver of the day: Romain Grosjean was running last on lap 3 and finished 6th” (@formula1formula)

“my men to watch didn’t fare well, Perez retired and HUL 12th after a mistake on the last lap” (@formula1formula)

“Championship: Alonso 129 – Webber 116 – Vettel 100 – Hamilton 92” (@RichlandF1)

    I love your tweet reviews after every race! The emotions expressed at “the moment” are always way more powerful than after the fact!

      Thanks! I like the way it lets people see a combination of people’s views.
