2013 Chinese Grand Prix weekend in Tweets

2013 Chinese Grand Prix

The Chinese government frowns on Twitter but the F1 teams and media are used to getting around that.

Here’s how the Chinese Grand Prix weekend unfolded as they saw it.


The press day at the circuit was dominated by the events of the previous race – especially the team orders controversy at Red Bull.


Friday practice saw Ma Qing Hua become the first Chinese driver to participate in his home race weekend. Nico Rosberg and Felipe Massa headed the two sessions.


Lewis Hamilton claimed pole position on Saturday but there was much debate over how little running the drivers did during qualifying.


Fernando Alonso won an action-packed race which saw Kimi Raikkonen tangle with Sergio Perez and a last-lap duel between Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel.

    Interesting collection of tweets and pictures, thanks.

    Regarding that Benson tweet, I presume he is joking?

    I wonder what Rosbergs magic talk message was….

    Wonder if they can adjust torque produced across the car or something. Anyone smarter know what it meant?

    Who is the creepy looking chap behind Sutil in the “Webber’s new barnet” tweet?!

    Twitter is frowned upon in China, but regretfully they failed to prevent the guy who runs the Lotus team twitter from using it.
