F1 fans’ videos from the 2012 Italian Grand Prix

2012 Italian Grand Prix

Fans’ videos from the Italian Grand Prix show Alonso hitting trouble in practice, Perez making sure he gets a good start, and a close-up of Vettel’s stricken Red Bull.

Alonso hits trouble

Kimi Raikkonen goes through the run-off at the Rettifilio during practice but the next driver onto it doesn’t emerge. It’s Fernando Alonso, who pulls to a stop with a technical problem on his Ferrari.

But it could have been worse – the last time he pulled over there the crowd weren’t cheering him.

Under the banking

The cars exit the Serraglio kink and blast underneath the bridge and old banking – you can hear the engine noise dip as they pass out of sight.

The grid

The drivers take their positions on the grid, though Bruno Senna appears to be short of his marks and Sergio Perez seems to be some way in front of his.

The start

This fan had an excellent close-up view of the start.

Rettifilio

Cheers as the field passes through the Rettifilio on lap three.

A wave from Button

Jenson Button’s might have all-but killed off his championship hopes but he still managed a wave for the fans.

Vettel’s Red Bull

Last year the crowd got to have a close look at Mark Webber’s Red Bull after the race – this time it was Sebastian Vettel’s.

Weekend highlights

A smart montage of footage from the weekend.

  1. Having seen the video of the start, it puzzles me why Sergio wasnt given a penalty…….he was clearly off his mark and it appeared a third of his car was out of the box……i dont know what the rules are about placing the car in the box (if it pertains only to the wheels or even the front wing should be in the box) but that looked like a blatant mistake…….i remember something similar happened with Massa in Spa 2010 and he wasnt penalised either…..

    I like the video of the RB8. If I was that fan I would have tried to get in a little deeper behind the diffuser, just to annoy Newey and co. ;)
