Tweets of the Week - Calm before the (thunder)storm - Coming home can often mean an adjustment to the weather

Published by Christine

With just two races to go, and back-to-back ones at that, this is the final moment of calm for teams and drivers before the racing gets underway - the racing that will see the championship decided once and for all. Whilst enjoying a mini-break, we're all starting to get excited for the next few weeks - nerves are jangling, eyes are watching the weather, and the drivers are training. Here are my favourite ten (or so) tweets of this week.

Will the Brazilian GP this year see spray on track, or is it clear skies ahead?

Week Ending: 31st October 2010

1. Force India come back to Britain and find the poor weather setting in.

Rainy and blustery day in Silverstone. Winter's here and we've still got 2 races to go - how did that happen?! Where did summer go?

Going to add my congratulations to Sam Bird on his Merc test. Rookie of the year for me. Voted for him on already!

4. Your regularly scheduled super-duper early forecast.

Early forecast for the #F1 Brazilian GP weekend at #Interlagos is for mainly dry and stable weather with long, sunny periods. Temps 24-28c.

6. It's good to have a bit of an inside view on next year's debut race.

Exactly 1 year to go to the first Indian Grand Prix.... work level has been ramped up massively since monsoons ended so all looks good !

7. Nico seems to be the driver on everyone's minds at the moment.

Williams doing all they can to get Hulk a drive for next year: Frank saying he's a future champ & Patrick saying he deserves an F1 seat. #F1

8. Maurice's workload ramps up for the next race.

Meeting at Heathrow with Abu Dhabi GP re on-track TV work during race weekend with Louise Goodman. Whole new world for me. Should be fun

9. Andy disagrees with our earlier weather forecast.

Off to see Rossi in the rain at Estoril. Third rain affected race meeting in a row. Wonder if there'll be a thunderstorm at Interlagos again
