Sidepodcast - All for F1 and F1 for all

Tweets of the Week - Bahrain gets the thumbs down - Gearing up for Christmas already, and playing an F1 game or two

Published by Christine

With the European season well and truly over now, it almost feels like a mini-break before things get underway in Singapore, despite the fact that it is the regular fortnightly gap. The teams have had no such rest, though, preparing all their frieght for the upcoming races - and tweeting about it as they go. This week, we cover all kinds of topics, including games, running, countdowns, and of course, the weather.

7. This is about the earliest prediction you could get for weather in Singapore.

Early forecasts suggest little or no T-storm activity during #F1 sessions for the #singaporegp. No rain after 2pm on any day this week.

8. I wasn't, but thanks for sharing!

For those wondering what the Portimao track is like to run round, all I would say is that at least it's not long. The hills are a killer
