Sidepodcast - All for F1 and F1 for all

Tweets of the Week - A slice of Lotus cake, please - A different kind of beauty treatment, traffic frustrations and more

Published by Christine

A bit of downtime before the racing kicks off again next week - most of Twitter has been focused on other sports. The Commonwealth Games have been gearing up with mixed reports, whilst the Ryder Cup has been occupying golf fans. It's fascinating to see how the people who grace the paddock spend their weekends off.

3. You would think they could at least answer the phone.

Just called to the first winner of my FB FanPage competition, Colin from UK, he will get some goodies sent soon as well! Who's next?! #fb

4. I am not the only person who never wants to hear the word Lotus again, then.

I think it's fair to say that's the last Lotus story of the week


5. Jake prepares to abandon us in favour of other sports. He may have been a bit short-sighted when selecting a username.

Sitting in a radio booth at TVC chatting about the Commonwealths. How long until I call the main stadium the circuit eh?? TIME TO PREP!!!!!

6. Don't believe it for a minute, but it's always fun to predict the future.

Early forecasts for the #F1 #japanesegp point towards a pleasant three days, little or even no rain around (amazing!) and reasonably sunny.

8. Ant qualified on pole for Petit Le Mans and finished the race second.

If you equally separated every car on the grid for tomorrows race - there would be a car every 90 meters!! Its going to be carnage...

9. What with a plane in Lotus colours, and now a cake, soon everything will be green and yellow.

Look what I find in a cake shop in KL. Don't ask why I was in a cake shop... I was asking for directions... #fb
