The Twitter outlook

After having a look at the entire field last week, with it being the end of the month, it’s back to the top 10’s this week as we begin June.

Drivers – The Top 10
01 – 966,071 – Jenson Button (McLaren)
02 – 831,893 – Lewis Hamilton (McLaren)
03 – 610,868 – Fernando Alonso (Ferrari)
04 – 421,478 – Bruno Senna (Williams)
05 – 350,713 – Mark Webber (Red Bull)
06 – 204,596 – Pastor Maldonaldo (Williams)
07 – 200,715 – Sergio Perez (Sauber)
08 – 160,397 – Nico Rosberg (Mercedes)
09 – 150,303 – Heikki Kovalainen (Caterham)
10 – 135,128 – Pedro de la Rosa (HRT)

Drivers – Biggest Increases
01 – 34,685 – Fernando Alonso
02 – 10,154 – Lewis Hamilton
03 – 9,964 – Jenson Button
04 – 7,278 – Mark Webber
05 – 6,002 – Pastor Maldonaldo

Drivers – Smallest Increases
01 – 440 – Charles Pic
02 – 798 – Jean-Eric Vergne
03 – 934 – Timo Glock
04 – 1,078 – Daniel Ricciardo
05 – 1,183 – Kamui Kobayashi

Two milestones were broken this week. Fernando Alonso broke the 600 thousand follower barrier, while both Pastor Maldonaldo and Sergio Perez broke the 200 thousand follower barrier. The biggest and smallest increases were fairly static and as expected this week, although I think this will be the last week that we see Maldonaldo in the top five for biggest increases. Up at the top, Jenson Button is creeping ever so near the one million follower barrier, and it looks like he shall break that towards the end of the month.

Teams – The Top 10
01 – 279,571 – Ferrari
02 – 194,434 – McLaren
03 – 130,103 – Mercedes
04 – 118,205 – Red Bull
05 – 109,722 – Lotus
06 – 75,483 – Caterham
07 – 65,997 – Marussia
08 – 65,556 – Williams
09 – 65,052 – Force India
10 – 56,109 – Sauber

Teams – Biggest Increases
01 – 4,248 – Ferrari
02 – 2,608 – Red Bull
03 – 1,927 – McLaren

Teams – Smallest Increases
01 – 468 – Williams
02 – 694 – Toro Rosso
03 – 743 – Marussia

Moving onto the teams, no surprises for the biggest increases, but I’m very surprised to see Williams record the smallest increase. Not quite sure why. Clearly as a team they have not had the “Maldonaldo effect” after Spain. They probably needed a good Monaco performance to follow it up with, but did not achieve that. Either way, less than a 500 follower gain in a seven day period is very poor. Force India, for the moment, remain behind them though albeit a cluster of less than 1,000 followers between seventh and ninth.

Driver and Team statistics as of Monday 4th June 2012.
