The Twitter outlook

Last week in this blog post, we seen two drivers’ jump over one million followers. Last weekend, on the race track, one of those drivers’ won the Italian Grand Prix. But how did that affect the Twitter outlook? It is time, to reveal all…

Drivers – The Top 10
01 – 1,118,290 – Jenson Button (McLaren)
02 – 1,074,044 – Fernando Alonso (Ferrari)
03 – 1,053,948 – Lewis Hamilton (McLaren)
04 – 481,855 – Bruno Senna (Williams)
05 – 430,599 – Mark Webber (Red Bull)
06 – 267,796 – Sergio Perez (Sauber)
07 – 258,616 – Pastor Maldonaldo (Williams)
08 – 194,781 – Nico Rosberg (Mercedes)
09 – 175,663 – Heikki Kovalainen (Caterham)
10 – 173,898 – Pedro de la Rosa (HRT)

Drivers – Biggest Increases
01 – 37,168 – Fernando Alonso
02 – 25,321 – Lewis Hamilton
03 – 14,490 – Jenson Button
04 – 10,169 – Sergio Perez
05 – 6,363 – Mark Webber

Drivers – Smallest Increases
01 – 790 – Charles Pic
02 – 1,063 – Jean-Eric Vergne
03 – 1,083 – Timo Glock
04 – 1,275 – Daniel Ricciardo
05 – 1,548 – Kamui Kobayashi

No change inside the top ten, Romain Grosjean moves ahead of Kamui Kobayashi thanks to the start-line accident at the Belgian Grand Prix, and the one race ban that followed it. As I noted last week, after that Grand Prix, the ban spread far and wide on Twitter. Although I don’t intend to follow his follower progress, Jerome d’Ambrosio has nearly 22,000 followers at the time of writing this, which would put him ahead of Charles Pic. He is not a regular tweeter, however, but as far as I know that is his real account.

In terms of smallest and largest increases, Sergio Perez had the fourth largest increase, thanks to his second place in the Italian Grand Prix. Status quo remains at the opposite end of the table.

Teams – The Top 10
01 – 334,535 – Ferrari
02 – 230,688 – McLaren
03 – 154,092 – Red Bull
04 – 146,803 – Mercedes
05 – 134,269 – Lotus
06 – 85,707 – Caterham
07 – 79,852 – Marussia
08 – 76,713 – Force India
09 – 74,585 – Williams
10 – 74,068 – Sauber

Teams – Biggest Increases
01 – 6,952 – Ferrari
02 – 5,142 – McLaren
03 – 3,961 – Red Bull

Teams – Smallest Increases
01 – 986 – Toro Rosso
02 – 991 – Caterham
03 – 1,123 – Marussia

Interestingly, Ferrari’s raw gain is lower than last week, somewhat oddly. Further down, Sauber recorded their highest gain since the Spanish Grand Prix week, I’m certain that Sauber will be jumping up to seventh within the next few weeks.

Driver and Team statistics as of Monday 10th September 2012.
