The Adventures of Sparklehelmet and Australia's Own Mark Webber (tm)

Selected tweets from this year’s Singapore F1 Grand Prix (or the “Singapore Night Race 2010” if you’re Channel Five and too tight-fisted to pay up for the naming rights)…

  • Vettel’s #sparklehelmet is even sparklier than it looks on the in-car camera. Does he know it’s not a drag race? #f1

  • HELP THERE IS A SWARM OF ANGRY HORNETS OUTSIDE oh wait never mind #f1

  • Bit of biffo there for The Incredible Hulkenberg, of course Five’s on an ad break dammit #mediacorpsucks #f1

  • Where can I get that t-shirt? / RT @mikestuchbery I HAVE A ‘YOU COME AT THE KING, YOU BEST NOT MISS’ T-SHIRT, FERCHRISSAKES. [Ed note: right here.]

  • The only thing that’ll save Australia’s Own Mark Webber ™ now is another safety car. Where’s Nelson Piquet Jr. when you need him? #f1 http://jg.sg/h

  • Why does the Singaporean army need to advertise when SG has mandatory national service? #notf1

  • Sparklehelmet nearly stalls coming out of the pit area, too distracted by his own reflection in the rear view #f1

  • Schuey pits and drops fifty squillion places, emerges somewhere in Malaysia #f1

  • And a BIG shove there for Schuey, the road rules are different over there in Malaysia clearly #f1

  • Kobayashi overcooks it at turn 18 where the track dives under the Marina grandstand, think that’s the place to sit next year #f1

  • Not great news for AOMW™, Lewis now right up his clacker on much fresher tyres #f1

  • Australia’s Own Mark Webber™ in P3 now, if he can hold off Lewis for 53 mins #f1

  • HAMILTON GETS COLLECTED #f1

  • “Front wing looks fine, STAY OUT”, sez Redbull mechanics. AUSTRALIA GOES WILD #f1

  • Tail end of the field is DiGrassi Junior High, two laps back. Don’t really care, just wanted to make that joke #f1

  • Oh dear Kovalainen’s on fire - that’s not supposed to happen… #f1

  • Alonso 1st, Sparklehelmet 2nd, Australia’s Own Mark Webber ™ 3rd and extends his lead in the drivers’ c/ship #MarkWebberForPM
