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 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.
This fan had an excellent close-up view of the start.
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.
A smart montage of footage from the weekend.
