Tweets of the Week - All change on the driver front // Some down time well spent between European races

Published by Christine

With a rest weekend between the British Grand Prix and the upcoming German race, the teams and drivers had a chance for a bit of downtime. Some spent it watching the Tour de France, others played golf, but it was those that ended up swapping their race seats that we paid most attention. Here are ten of the best tweets from the week gone by.
