Mil in spanish = 1000.

Glad Seb does not have twitter or FB. We already saw the disaster caused by some when they believed the FB account was his. The current WDC should never have Fb/Twitter because there are too many frustrated keyboard warriors that can't seem to keep their cool whilst hidden behind the security of their monitors.

Jenson seemed to cope...

This is very handy, all your favourite F1 correspondents all tweeting at one place.

unfortunately it's offline now, does something similar still exist?

You have to find a "Public List" like the bbc one.

https://twitter.com/#!/bbcsportwebsite/f1/members

https://twitter.com/#!/MyCaterhamF1/team-lotus/members

https://twitter.com/#!/IndyCar/lists

https://twitter.com/#!/RolexSeries/lists

But whats the difference of following the members individually or by hub :confused:

Do you think that was something special? (I knew it, it wasn't.) Everyone can make their own lists.

Here's my F1 Drivers list for example:
https://twitter.com/#!/hunnylander/f1-drivers
The members of it: https://twitter.com/#!/hunnylander/f1-drivers/members

Then I have many other lists, McLaren staff list, F1 Teams list, F1 journos/media list, F1 Testing list, F1 Photos list, F1 Photographers list.

Couldn't believe in the following reply from a well known american magazine... is it a fake account :confused:

NP comments his preparations for the Nationwide race:
"
Nelson Piquet‏@NelsonPiquet
The car is really fun. It was good to practice a few tricks I always did on formula cars, like braking using the left foot. :)
reply
RACER‏@RACERmag

You'd like to hope it was a fake. That was completely uncalled for.

By creating a fake Twitter account, it seems you get to meet the real thing... in this case Charlie Whiting: http://www.theglobea...e2448611/page1/

“We are going to meet up in Montreal for a chat – I thought it would be quite fun,” Whiting said.

“I will be fairly busy on Thursday, but I will be quite happy to show him around race control. I can show him the places that he normally wouldn't be able to see. It's nice to be able to do something occasionally. It's quite hard, really, sometimes to find time and be selective about these things, but it's always nice to try and do something for someone who is obviously a real fan and a genuine enthusiast.”

“He's not really attempting to actually impersonate me in so far as he admits he is not me, which I think is absolutely fine,” he said.

“Now, if he was doing and writing silly things, I might have something to say about it, but it's quite fun and he's not casting me in a bad light, so I'm pretty happy really.”

Taki Inoue is making himself useful on twitter, he must be involved in the organisation of the Festival of Speed.

"Taki Inoue ‏@takiinoue
Muff diving? RT @LordHumphreys no stage diving I guess"

"Taki Inoue ‏@takiinoue
The reason why I am watching GP at this time, only really want to see piss head marshalls!!"

'Taki Inoue ‏@takiinoue
In these day Formula 1 is getting very plastic. Need human smell more. Even some drivers are like a robot. haven't seen tears since Ayrton.'

Maybe he should watch more F1 then, I remember Buemi crying after he DNF'd a race, or Perez getting all emotional during a mexican interview after his first podium.

Yeah he does mention in another post that when he attends races no body talks to him. I guess he is out of touch yet hilarious.

This guy annoys me nowadays. He doesn't even bother to be Charlie Whiting any more, I remember reading some of his mildly amusing tweets as a Fake Charlie Whiting, instead nowadays he's just some bloke nobody gives a shit about tweeting about himself. He needs to understand what a 'novelty account' actually is!

Personally wether he is tweeting as "Charlie" or not i find him funny, witty & interesting. He does still tweet as though he was Charlie i think it was just for the Canadian GP he understandably tweeted about his experience which i can't really blame him for as it sounded amazing!

How disappointing for the F1 press who seem so keen to stoke up a feud. Maybe they can cheer themselves up by imagining JB and Lewis glaring across the orange juice at each other.

Good thread use, I saw the tweet but having forgotten about this thread couldn't be bothered to tenuously link it to the Mercedes car thread, or Lewis v Nico.

The Mercedes and McLaren team twitter accounts were both very taken with this and made their own record of the historic event as it happened:

Two helmets for the collection... Vettel/Hamilton. Thank you guys!

Is well known that he collects the helmet of drivers who drove against him, but does he collect their helmets for every year?, he already got Hamilton's helmet last year.


It will fe funny to read what Vettel wrote, I can read "thank you" and "against". Bigger pic here.

OK, my guess at what it says:
To Fernando your a great competitor on track. I love racing against you! :confused:

No idea about what Lewis has written from that angle? I can't even work out what is below his signature, maybe the year but doesn't look like 2013.

I think I need to stop studying that picture and get some sleep :wave:

Here's my F1 Drivers list for example:
https://twitter.com/#!/hunnylander/f1-drivers
The members of it: https://twitter.com/#!/hunnylander/f1-drivers/members

Looking down that list of drivers, one little blurb stuck out to me.
While most are very basic, like "Formula 1 Driver" or "[insert team] Driver" and others are less serious like Webber "Drive cars at weekends", Di Resta goes with
"Official Twitter Account/// Sahara Force India Formula 1 Team Race Driver/// Whyte & Mackay Global Brand Ambassador /// "

Has he ever been known to make a joke?
