2014 Spanish Grand Prix Sunday in Tweets

2014 Spanish Grand PrixPosted on | Author Boštjan Budna

In China the chequered flag was waved a lap early but in Spain the television graphics declared Rosberg the winner on lap 20! Here’s the Spanish Grand Prix in Tweets.


The Barcelona paddock woke up to a rainy morning. Track was damp as the day began with sprint races in GP3 and GP2.

Williams’ test driver Felipe Nasr took his maiden victory in GP2.


Caterham weren’t happy as Pastor Maldonado collided with one of their cars – the Lotus driver later took a penalty for the offence.

The race broadcast accidentally showed a graphic showing Nico Rosberg as the race winner – on lap 20.

Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg weren’t exchanging places as they had been in Bahrain, but their strategic battle meant the Spanish Grand Prix had an exciting conclusion.

  1. Ha, I thought I was the only one who noticed that Rosberg was declared the winner on lap 20!

    1. Hehe saw it too :)

    2. I think we should refer to someone being shown the chequered flag before the end as “Chinese chequers” from now on!

      1. Oh really? GREAT! xD

  2. A couple of years ago people were slamming Kimi for being ‘unmotivated’ and ‘not talking to the team’, now he sticks around after a couple of bad races and some people in F1 media instantly go in to spectacle mode. What changed? Oh, yeah, his employer.

    Lap 11. @kamui_kobayashi is 20th, @Ericsson_Marcus 22nd after being MAL’d on lap one….

    It only could have been better if Lotus wrote that.

  4. I can’t BELIEVE they cut to the garage on the last lap, I jumped out of my chair and screamed!
