The Twitter outlook

F1 in Korea is in full swing, whilst over here on the blog, it is time for the weekly Twitter blog:

Drivers – The Top 10

Drivers – Biggest Increases
01 – 23,397 – Lewis Hamilton
02 – 20,590 – Fernando Alonso
03 – 19,448 – Jenson Button
04 – 9,589 – Sergio Perez
05 – 7,476 – Felipe Massa

04 – 1,469 – Nico Hulkenberg
05 – 1,895 – Heikki Kovalainen

For the first time ever in this series, Lewis Hamilton records the largest gain over the past week. It is not his biggest gain, that came a few weeks ago, but the reason he has moved into first above is because Fernando Alonso’s gains in the past month have slowed somewhat from 40k per race week to 20k per race week. I posted a month ago about their respective gains, but since then his gains have slowed.

Another interesting point is that Sergio Perez’s nine thousand gain is not his second highest as he recorded a higher increase during the Italian Grand Prix week thanks to his second place. So his McLaren move, although it put him top last week, may not result in an instant long term effect. Further down, Bruno Senna became the fourth current Formula 1 driver to break the 500,000 mark, so congratulations to him.
