2012 Brazilian Grand Prix in Tweets

Relive the drama of the championship-deciding Brazilian Grand Prix weekend as it unfolded through the eyes of the drivers and teams.

Thursday

Friday

Lewis Hamilton was fastest in both practice sessions as Pirelli tested new tyre compounds for 2013. Championship rivals Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso end the day separated by just a few tenths.

Sauber confirmed Esteban Gutierrez as Kamui Kobayashi’s replacement in 2013, while Charles Pic confirmed for a transfer to Caterham from current rivals Marussia.

Saturday

Kimi Raikkonen’s engine woes continued as his final practice session came to an early end. Jenson Button was fastest ahead of qualifying but was beaten to pole position by Hamilton. Vettel qualified fourth with Alonso eighth ahead of the championship showdown.

Sunday

Race day dawned overcast and rain fell shortly after the race began. The championship advantage swung back and forth between Alonso and Vettel after the Red Bull driver’s first-lap collision with Bruno Senna.

While Button excelled in the wet conditions for his third win of the year sixth place was enough for Vettel to seal his third championship title.

    Christian Horner reads out a list of previous three times world champions to Vettel but misses out Jack Brabham! Tut-tut. #F1

    That should explain on who is the most overlooked and underrated champion of all time. ;-)

    Oh my. It’s really over :(

    I’ll have to wait until Feb 2013 for material news. I’m going into depression.

    I like this feature, thanks @anthonyfrench !

    It’s great to see the humour in and surrounding F1, that’s what I enjoy the most about Twitter during a race weekend.
