2013 Bahrain Grand Prix weekend in Tweets

2013 Bahrain Grand PrixPosted on | Author Keith Collantine

The Bahrain Grand Prix produced an interesting race but it played out before a meagre crowd and amid a massive police presence due to the ongoing conflict in the country.

Here’s how the teams and drivers saw the race weekend in Tweets.

Thursday

In the build-up to the race Caterham and Marussia revealed they would run different drivers on the first practice session: Heikki Kovalainen an Rofolfo Gonzalez respectively.

Friday

Felipe Massa topped FP1 with Kimi Raikkonen fighting back for Lotus in FP2. Heikki KOvalainen returned to the cockpit for Caterham, while Rodolfo Gonzalez made his F1 debut for Marussia in place of Jules Bianchi in FP1.

Saturday

Mercedes had a varied day with a suspension failure for Hamilton in FP3 followed by a scintillating lap that put Nico Rosberg on pole – the first back-to-back Mercedes’ pole positions since 1955.

Sunday

Despite producing the same podium trio as this race 12 months ago, the race was full of action from start to finish. Vettel wrapped up win number two from four races.
