Tweets of the Week (Special edition) - Drivers react after Korea - A bonus round up of thoughts about the inaugural Korean GP

Published by Christine

What a race we witnessed over the weekend. From a ridiculously frustrating to start, to a chaotic full race distance, filled with retirements. Drivers were spinning, teams were panicking, and neither Red Bull made it to the chequered flag. Things are getting interesting.

Reactions from the race have been pouring forth on Twitter, and I had filled up my allocated ten tweets by just browsing the Sidepodcast Driver list. That being the case, I thought a special edition post was in order - just from drivers, both on track and watching at home - how they saw the Korean Grand Prix.

Week Ending: 24th October 2010

1. The calm before the storm, as the Toro Rosso driver has a good first impression of the track.

Nice circuit with a lot of walls, but it is fast and demanding! I love it!

2. Lucas also notes the potential of the Korean circuit.

My view on Yeongam Circuit: Really technical to drive, slippery, no margin for mistakes in the last sector and good overtaking spots

3. Immediately, we switch to post race. McLaren's test driver was in the 5live commentary box.

A really exciting Korean GP delayed due to bad weather but in the end a great race. One to remember. Especially for me in the commentary box

7. Whilst Bruno judges those who didn't.

Had to control the pace to avoid trouble. Many others didn't..

8. A plaintive wail from Jaime, who lost out on points on the very last lap.

No es justo


9. From his earlier optimism, Sebastien may have changed his opinion of Korea.

Well, 5 grid penalty is not right!
