The Twitter outlook

It’s week 4 of my Twitter outlook posts, so without further ado, let’s have a look at the Drivers’ tables:

Drivers – The Top 10
01 – 945,383 – Jenson Button (McLaren)
02 – 811,373 – Lewis Hamilton (McLaren)
03 – 541,338 – Fernando Alonso (Ferrari)
04 – 408,900 – Bruno Senna (Williams)
05 – 333,411 – Mark Webber (Red Bull)
06 – 191,950 – Sergio Perez (Sauber)
07 – 190,271 – Pastor Maldonaldo (Williams)
08 – 153,744 – Nico Rosberg (Mercedes)
09 – 146,056 – Heikki Kovalainen (Caterham)
10 – 129,927 – Pedro de la Rosa (HRT)

Drivers – Biggest Increases
01 – 30,324 – Fernando Alonso
02 – 14,630 – Pastor Maldonaldo
03 – 10,127 – Jenson Button
04 – 8,619 – Lewis Hamilton
05 – 6,903 – Mark Webber

Drivers – Smallest Increases
01 – 333 – Charles Pic
02 – 613 – Timo Glock
03 – 754 – Nico Hulkenberg
04 – 777 – Jean-Eric Vergne
05 – 1,173 – Vitaly Petrov

Status quo in the top 10, although Pastor Maldonaldo’s gain means that he will likely overtake Sergio Perez very soon. In fact, he probably already has by the time this post goes online. Fernando Alonso continues his usual big gains due to him joining Twitter only a few months ago, although inevitably his gains will start to slow at some point. At the other end of the table, Charles Pic again draws the short straw, once again picking up less than one thousand followers in the space of a week.

Teams – The Top 10
01 – 270,271 – Ferrari
02 – 188,482 – McLaren
03 – 126,845 – Mercedes
04 – 112,388 – Red Bull
05 – 105,888 – Lotus
06 – 73,397 – Caterham
07 – 64,243 – Marussia
08 – 63,879 – Williams
09 – 63,067 – Force India
10 – 53,068 – Sauber

Teams – Biggest Increases
01 – 3,500 – Ferrari
02 – 1,766 – Red Bull
03 – 1,734 – McLaren

Teams – Smallest Increases
01 – 517 – Toro Rosso
02 – 613 – Marussia
03 – 685 – Force India

The only change here is Williams have jumped in front of Force India, which I predicted last week. They have not overtaken Marussia though, so that part of my prediction was wrong. Their gain was a bit less than what I anticipated. Elsewhere it’s as expected, although a mention for Sauber – four thousand followers increase in two weeks. Not exactly a huge increase, is it?

Driver and Team statistics as of Sunday 20th May 2012.

  1. You should do a column on the quality of the VTs (video features) done by the BBC and Sky in their pre-shows, on things like quality of footage, how well it’s edited and so on…

    1. Many thanks for the comment Alex. Good shout to do that actually, maybe compare BBC’s and Sky’s Qualifying build-up side-by-side and see who managed their time better or what features/VT’s were similar. I probably wouldn’t do the Race purely because Sky’s build-up is longer, but Qualifying I think is worth doing as the lengths are similar (60 minutes vs 50 minutes). Thanks again!
