The Twitter outlook

So, then. What happens when one driver moves from a midfield team to a front running team, and another driver moves from a front running team to a front running team? The answer, is here…

Drivers – The Top 10
01 – 1,155,790 – Jenson Button (McLaren)
02 – 1,123,104 – Fernando Alonso (Ferrari)
03 – 1,100,489 – Lewis Hamilton (McLaren)
04 – 498,191 – Bruno Senna (Williams)
05 – 442,369 – Mark Webber (Red Bull)
06 – 300,415 – Sergio Perez (Sauber)
07 – 269,231 – Pastor Maldonaldo (Williams)
08 – 202,488 – Nico Rosberg (Mercedes)
09 – 180,199 – Pedro de la Rosa (HRT)
10 – 180,141 – Heikki Kovalainen (Caterham)

Drivers – Biggest Increases
01 – 23,535 – Sergio Perez
02 – 15,097 – Lewis Hamilton
03 – 13,238 – Jenson Button
04 – 12,547 – Fernando Alonso
05 – 5,599 – Bruno Senna

02 – 514 – Timo Glock
03 – 619 – Jean-Eric Vergne
04 – 622 – Daniel Ricciardo
05 – 1,043 – Kamui Kobayashi

Moving to McLaren not only gained Sergio Perez an extra 23,000 followers, clearly his highest yet in this series of blogs, but it also sent him above 300,000 followers. Fernando Alonso’s fourth place is the lowest he has been ever in the increases chart, whilst Lewis Hamilton did not gain many more followers compared to Jenson Button or Alonso.

Outside of the top few positions, Nico Rosberg went over 200,000 followers, possibly a side effect of his new formed partnership with Hamilton and Pedro de la Rosa overtook Heikki Kovalainen for ninth place.

Teams – The Top 10
01 – 343,334 – Ferrari
02 – 241,072 – McLaren
03 – 161,889 – Red Bull
04 – 153,836 – Mercedes
05 – 139,676 – Lotus
06 – 87,539 – Caterham
07 – 82,780 – Marussia
08 – 80,728 – Force India
09 – 78,719 – Sauber
10 – 76,455 – Williams

Teams – Biggest Increases
01 – 5,092 – McLaren
02 – 4,062 – Mercedes
03 – 2,909 – Ferrari

Teams – Smallest Increases
01 – 504 – Toro Rosso
02 – 594 – Caterham
03 – 599 – Williams

McLaren recorded clearly the highest gain in the past week, again thanks to Perez. Mercedes had their highest gain yet since I started this series, although before that, it is quite possible that they gained higher than 4,000 followers in a week when Rosberg won the Chinese Grand Prix.

Driver and Team statistics as of Monday 1st October 2012.
