Kimi Raikkonen’s amusing radio messages, Red Bull’s qualifying drama and Max Chilton’s F1 debut were among the talking points at the Abu Dhabi weekend. Here’s a look back on the Grand Prix in Tweets.



McLaren were fastest in first practice while Britain?s Max Chilton made his practice debut for Marussia. Second practice saw Vettel back on top with the McLarens second and third, but Fernando Alonso languished down in seventh.


Vettel missed much of final practice while McLaren were dominant once again. Come qualifying, it was an easy pole for Hamilton while Vettel stopped on circuit after taking third. He was later relegated to the back of the grid.


In the race Hamilton retired, Webber crashed, Alonso and Button raced, but through it all came Kimi Raikkonen to secure his first victory in over three years. Vettel’s recovery drive to third behind Alonso meant his championship lead was cut to ten points.
