@SlvAaron Little aggressive but as great Senna said 'if you no longer go for a gap that exists, you are no longer a racing driver' #FTF1Twit

@SlvAaron He got himself in between two cars, but he had the speed to carry through. Was potentially brilliant. #ftf1twit #F1

@SlvAaron from @nico_rosberg's onboard it looks as if Fernando moves onto Felipe... you could call it aggressive I guess #FTF1Twit

My brother @Wardboy77 says Massa to blame for contact. Is he blind? : Was Massa's move too aggressive? #FTF1Twit #F1

Chris Ward #72 @CRWard77
Watched again. Massa dived into space and Nando moved and clipped him: Was Massa's move too aggressive? #FTF1Twit #F1 

Chris Ward #72 @CRWard77
Ferrari updates made the difference and not down to Domenicalli. I reckon someone has had a word in Fernando's ear too, #FTF1Twit

Chris Ward #72 @CRWard77
Red Bull, Force India and Ferrari could win a race, but will need a bit of luck along the way. I say Red Bull somewhere.

Chris Ward #72 @CRWard77
Not for me. Unlucky with contact.
