GPDA KoreaGet a glimpse behind the scenes of the Korean Grand Prix with @AnthonyFrench’s round-up of the best Tweets from the race weekend.


Mokpo welcomed drivers and teams for the fourth year, but there were continued doubts over the venue’s long-term future.


Lewis Hamilton topped both practice sessions for Mercedes, raising hopes that Red Bull might face some effective opposition.


Sebastian Vettel took control of proceedings, topping final practice before seizing pole position for Sunday’s race. Romain Grosjean out-qualified Kimi Raikkonen again but both McLarens failed to make it into Q3.


While Vettel sprinted off into a comfortable lead never to be challenged a hectic race developed reigned behind him. Nico Hulkenberg starred, rebuffing attacks from three world champions and two multiple race-winners on his way to a valuable fourth place for Sauber.

  1. Nice to see (most of) the drivers together in the GPDA photo! In normal clothes too, they actually look like people and not corporate robots/walking adverts. World Champions or backmarkers, they’re all racing drivers at the end of the day and have a lot in common. It’s nice to see a sense of camaraderie between all the drivers when you usually get the sense that most of them wouldn’t give each other the time of day

  2. Seeing Hamilton playing around with Google Glass, it’s hard not to wonder how long it is before we see drivers using such technology to overlay vital information through their helmet visors. It can’t be too difficult even with current hardware to create a visor that offers the drivers a view similar to ones viewers see whenever the TV director switches to infrared cam.

          1. That’s incorrect – The first head up display in a racing car helmet was developed by Frazer-Nash for proper Lotus back in 1992. Pretty neat, although admittedly Herbert couldn’t browse the web on it whilst driving, as, well, the web hadn’t actually been invented yet… :>

            Couldn’t spot much info on it on the net, but the development was mentioned in this article by Joe Saward 22 years ago, and I think it was raced or at the very least tested in car:
