Tweets of the Week - More than just Ferrari furore - All the social media reactions from the German Grand Prix

Published by Christine

It's been a stressful weekend of motorsport as the German Grand Prix caused all kinds of surprises. Fans turned to Twitter to express their thoughts on the actions of Ferrari during the race - and I feel a bit sorry for whoever has to sift through all those replies! However, it's not all about Ferrari. Here are a selection of F1 related tweets from throughout the week for you.

1. We're actually starting with two tweets as di Grassi gives some valuable insight into the tyre situation.

Tyre analysis: hardest - Pros: very consistent during race. Cons: difficult to warm up, low grip level. To consider: how hot weather will be

Softest -Pros: high grip 1 lap, easy to warm up, good for the start. Cons: high wear, might overheat, slow long run. To consider: track grip

2. I don't know why I find it surprising but drivers sure do drive a lot!

Starting road trip to Hockenheim, quiet roads 470km to go, bit late night but I like driving at night so no problems... #fb

3. A new way of dreaming up strategies - canvassing the fans?

Radar saying 5-10 minute showers. Should we wait or go and scrub a set of extremes?

8. Another statistic for the fact-fans (assuming the results remain unchanged).

That's the 23rd "win" for Alonso. That puts him =9th in the all-time list alongside Nelson Piquet.
