2013 Canadian Grand Prix

MassaGet a glimpse behind the scenes at the Canadian Grand Prix. Here’s what the teams and drivers shared on Twitter during the Montreal race weekend.

Thursday

Concerns over the dull weather forecast were uppermost in the teams’ minds as pre-event activities began on Thursday.

Friday

Paul Di Resta celebrated Force India’s 100th Grand Prix weekend with the fastest time in first practice. But the most compelling action of the day came in the team principal’s press conference, where Ross Brawn, Stefano Domenicalli and Christian Horner fielded questions over ‘that’ Pirelli test in Spain.

Saturday

Final practice was reduced to a mere half hour session following repairs to a barrier damaged in a support race. Qualifying took place in damp and tricky conditions: McLaren lost out, Vettel took pole but it was Williams and Valtteri Bottas who sprung the biggest surprise with third on the grid.

Sunday

Sebastian Vettel finally added the Canadian Grand Prix victory to his rapidly-expanding CV. Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton scrapped over second and the Ferrari driver prevailed.

McLaren failed to score for the first time since Abu Dhabi in 2009 while Mark Webber raged against the backmarker who damaged his car.

In the aftermath of Sunday’s tragic news that a marshal had lost his life following the race many drivers, teams and media took to Twitter to express their sympathy.

    P19 for RGrosjean plus ten place penalty means a P29 start. HRTF1Team you could be needed. Bring some friends #CanadianGP #PunchLine
    I think Lotus need to call their screenprinters again – there has to be a way to get this on a t-shirt.

    I love the first picture of the bridge, and this time I found most Lotus tweets pretty funny, especially the one about the bus-stop chicane.

    With regard to Keith’s tweet on Alonso nearly colliding with Webber and Hamilton, I would like to see some onboards of those moments. Was Alonso staying, or turning more to the middle of the track than Webber and Hamilton were expecting, or were the latter two not paying proper attention?

    Wasn’t aware that there was anything on this plant could make Andy Murry smile. Guess I was wrong.

    Good to see VdGarde mention that he will take the clear message from the Stewards in!
