Tweets of the Week - Asking for feedback and handing it out // A unique way to watch the race, and reactions from teams and drivers

Published by Christine

Melbourne has been and gone. We counted it down to the very second and before we knew what was happening it was over. It was a great start to the season though, with mixed results for the teams. Thoughts and reviews from the race have been pouring forth on Twitter, so I have selected some of the best for you now.

Here are my top ten tweets from the last seven days (although really mostly from yesterday and today).

Week Ending: 28th March 2011

1. It's a good job Lotus didn't change their livery too much, or this would not work anymore.

Well, that sort of worked out ok. We are close enough to the PGCs to have a good race tomorrow #f1

4. That can't be the only positive outcome? Talk about glass half empty.

It was a negative weekend but at least we brought home some points: this is the only positive outcome

5. What it is like to have to sit and watch.

In 2005 I qualified 12th for my debut race and today,to c that I'm not a part of all the action and fun of inaugural race,is frustrating!!!!

6. McLaren are happy to improve, although I'm not sure they had stopped being title contenders.

Still smiling and feeling relieved about the weekend. What a massive step forward by #McLaren. Now title contenders again #thefightison

7. If you've got some feedback for the BBC commentating duo, they've got 20% capacity to improve.

Thanks for your much appreciated comments on DC and Marty part of F1 show. On way to the airport we agreed it was 'about 80% must do better'

8. Maurice has seen a lot of F1 regulation changes but this year concerns.

Feedback from friends, not necessarily F1 anoraks, who say F1 seems to have become too technical and they can't follow a lot of it. Hmmmm
