Bpofy-RCUAAMLRkThe Canadian Grand Prix came to a thrilling conclusion: Daniel Ricciardo clinched his first grand prix win, and on the final lap Felipe Massa and Sergio Perez crashed heavily, fortunately without injury to either driver.

But the circuit’s handling of the crowd at the end of the race was called into question. Twelve months on from an accident which claimed the life of marshal Mark Robinson, there were concerns that fans had been allowed onto the circuit while recovery vehicles were being operated.

And while some spectators tried to get their hands on pieces of debris from the crash, marshals discharged fire extinguishers to keep them at bay.

But most of the attention was on Ricciardo following his remarkable maiden Formula One victory. Here’s how the chaotic Canadian Grand Prix happened on Twitter.
