2014 Australian Grand Prix weekend in Tweets

Formula One burst back to life in Australia last weekend. Here’s a look at how the weekend unfolded on social media.


The first day of action – or inaction as far as the Caterham drivers were concerned.


The glorious conditions on Friday were replaced by rain ahead of qualifying. Lotus’s struggle with their E22 went on as both drivers were eliminated in Q1.

Lewis Hamilton mastered the conditions to start the race on pole position while Daniel Ricciardo, Kevin Magnussen and Daniil Kvyat all impressed.


The rain stayed away for race day and Nico Rosberg gave Mercedes a winning start to the season after Hamilton’s car failed early on.

A dream Red Bull debut for Ricciardo was dashed hours after the race when he was excluded from the results. That promoted Magnussen, who’s already finished on the podium in his debut, to a fine second place.
