This week's tweeting has been absolutely epic, with lots of insiders following testing and giving us great insight into what has been happening. We also had a couple of new team launches, so opinions were everywhere.

A good feeling in the team after the first day of testing. Felipe’s first impressions are positive: a better beginning compared to last year.

Williams are not launching as such, when the car rolls out at 10am, that will be its debut.

STR5 was wheeled into pit lane at 9.05 and the photographers did their stuff. Special guest? Schumacher was having a good look at our car.

Four kilometers of cueue to get into the circuit… It is Alonso mania at Valencia with more than 30,000 people attending the testing session.

Already in barcelona! I really think we have a great car! This season will be exciting! Ou yesssssaaa!


Mr Wirth's Virgin car looks very IRL to me. Hope it doesn't only turn left. Shakedown is at Silverstone and the pit exit's a right!

Forecast for Jerez is 60% chance of rain all four days. Not good news for Red Bull, Force I and Virgin who have first runs on new cars.

Lots of tweets about Mercedes and Ferrari copying our chassis design. All rubbish: do they have propellers and a flamethrower? I think not…

Good that Anthony Davidson is back on the BBC in 2010. Last year I invested in a Kangaroo TV, so I could hear Ant and Crofty every session.
