Tweets of the Week - Four hours, four minutes and thirty-nine seconds - Turning to the fans to get advice on setting up the car

Published by Christine

There may have been some tweets before the Canadian Grand Prix weekend, but how can we possibly go back that far when there is so much to say about the action in Montreal? From drivers finding out the state of things from Twitter, to the statistics from what became a pretty lengthy race.

Week Ending: 13th June 2011

1. This is a pretty painful way to find out what's happening.

It's a shame to hear about Montreal, hope "Checo" gets better, but I never received indication to prevent this situation. I was ready..

2. Timo is turning to crowdsourcing to setup the car.

Low or high Dforce is the question! Evry1 is switching up and down so what's your opinion what do you think is the way to go?Low or high DF?

3. Isn't it fun to look back on tweets with the benefit of hindsight?

Not such a great qualifying session today but tomorrow is the day that matters & i've got a feeling the race is going 2 b action packed!

4. Button went on to win and escape any penalties.

Was interviewing JB when news broke that stewards will not take any action. He may have been confident but his smile def got a little wider.

5. Something you didn't know about Schumacher - he has independent eyes.

Schumacher: "I am leaving this race with one eye laughing and one eye crying." That's a weird thing to say


6. Getting back in the swing of things for Pedalo.

Fantastic drive from Jenson! Impressive. Next time pls give some more space for my front wing man!

7. There was plenty of action once the red flag was lifted, but it was that last lap you had to watch out for.

A little stat for you all: It's the 12th time in F1 that the race winner has led only the last lap of the race. Last time was Brazil '03 #F1

As a postscript to yesterday's Montreal epic, the official race duration was four hours four minutes.and 39.537 seconds.

9. Despite having to be on the ball for four hours, Crofty still had the chicane count.

And for all those wanting to know. The final chicane cutting tally was 43, so I wasn't far wrong with my estimate

10. Finally, F1 already begins to move on from Montreal with a Renault reshuffle.

Upcoming restructure at Renault will see sporting director Steve Nielsen leave the team. Dodgy has the full story #F1
