Yes and when/if he starts one, I believe like many celebrities someone else will make the tweets for him. I do not think he will be the person actually typing but of course they will be from him & what he wants to say.

Ferrari don't allow staff to use social media but in the last few days we have a guy claiming to be a Ferrari mechanic showing up on Twitter as well as Gene and now Alonso.

What is going on?

It seems they have decided to take a different route. One which I think is best for all involved. Let's see if an account is truly made. :))

Maybe because...
The @marc_gene account is quite new...
" Your account was created on 9 February 2012" (whendidyoujointwitter.com)
and he start tweeting 7 March.

I'm glad that he made it quite clear that it was genuinely him. Good one Fernando. :clap:

So I wonder if we should be expecting more members of the Ferrari team to be joining.

I notice that his official site is under construction.

http://www.fernandoalonso.com/

Previously it was managed by La Sexta and it's was pretty bad.

Guys, I read today in another F1 website that from their readers, they've done a survey to asked them who they thought would be the winner in Melbourne.

Here are the results, quite surprising, must I say ?

Out of 1214 votes :

411 for - Alonso (Ferrari)
276 for - Vettel (Red Bull Racing)
147 for - Räikkönen (Lotus F1 Team)
145 for - Hamilton (McLaren)
70 for - Schumacher (Mercedes AMG)
59 for - Button (McLaren)
30 for - Grosjean (Lotus F1 Team)
23 for - Webber (Red Bull Racing)
19 for - Massa (Ferrari)
12 for- Rosberg (Mercedes AMG)

When asked on their Facebook page, the readers with a majority believed (or hoped!) that Fernando Alonso would win the Australian Grand Prix, opening round of the 2012 season of Formula 1! The Spaniard was considered favorite for a third of the voters (33%) !

Of the 1214 responses recorded at the time of the writing, the 10 a.m. pilots were appointed by name as potential winners of the Melbourne event (I am only posting 10, as there was 4 votes for Pic @ Marussia :lol: )

What are the odds on an Alonso win? Maybe I should take a chance and wager...

Never done it before though but I'm of the opinion that Ferrari are in much better shape than the pundits predict.

Before testing began, I bet 60€ on Alo for WDC this year with an odds of 7.3 to 1, after testing I started to regret it....

... but only because after the testing the odds went up to 8.4 to 1, so I will win less money :evil: :lol:

There was no gag order. The media just played it that way to suit their agenda.

It is pretty difficult to gag a celebrity because the cameras will always be in their faces.

Maybe Ferrari realised that after three years the most scandalous thing an F1 driver has done on Twitter is writing a naughty word?

I would not count him off, all we have seen is powder to the eyes...
The real cars will be on the grid the 18th, remember Monza 2010.

FORZA Ferrari !
