Tweets of the Week - Classic fun at Goodwood and new stuff at Silverstone - Formula One heads straight to the British countryside

Published by Christine

It's all go in the UK this month, as the Goodwood Festival of Speed took place over the weekend, and the British Grand Prix at Silverstone is ready to roll next weekend. Teams and drivers are making the most of some surprising good weather and taking a festival-shaped break before the racing begins again.

2. Talk about a back seat driver! It must be quite nerve-racking chauffeuring a professional driver around.

Heading into London for a podcast with Motorsport Magazine... Got THE worst taxi driver ever ! Never had so many lane changes & road rage !

4. And not so much of a fan.

“@mikllll: @H_Kovalainen what do you think about Silverstone?” I think they spoiled the track by making the new section, pits I haven't seen

9. That... is a lot of magazines.

Anyone want any old issues of Autosport? Having a massive clear out - mags date from 1995 to 2007. Or MotorSport from around 2000 onwards.

10. Someone may not have thought this through properly.
