Tweets of the Week - Clock watching in Singapore - Graciously watching Formula One from the sidelines

Published by Christine

Preparations for the Singapore Grand Prix are in full force on Twitter this week, as the drivers gear up for the calendar's only proper night race. Most will remain on a European time schedule which will be very odd, as a couple of the tweets below detail. Also this week, we have some confirmations of upcoming plans, and a couple of rumours quashed. These are my top ten tweets of the past week.

1. A quick Brundle fact to kick us off.

Incidentally Monza was first time in history that five world champions have filled the first five positions. Last time 5 on grid 1970 Mexico

2. He may have been breaking the speed limit a little.

Morning! Great day yesterday driving my race car around the streets in Roggel Holland. 165mph down the high street!! What a buzz!

3. Decision with a capital D.

I will not drive in FP1 in Singapore cause the team wants to give Adrian and Paul more track time and i understand and accept the Decision

4. If you're looking for a new challenge, this could be it.

5. Nothing like a bit of motivation.

There are more than 400 trophies on display within MTC. We see them every day and they're a constant reminder that we want more of them! :)

6. I love seeing Lewis supporting his brother, with a bit of free advice thrown in as well.

Just landed in the UK to watch my bro do his thing in Clio's here at Rockingham. It's freezing here!!

My brother did well today, slowly getting better and faster. Time to find on brakes but after that he'll be too fast:)

7. Looking ahead to the weather in Singapore - could we see a wet race?

Singapore forecast not good. High 80s into next week, so it's going to be warm but overcast with thunderstorms/rain every day.

8. Steve may be able to design a championship-winning Formula One car, but Windows can get the better of all of us.

Dear Windows error message, I really don't know if the answer is yes or no, I've tried clicking both, but all I want is for you to go away.

9. Rumours, denials and speculation. What is truth and what is fiction?

Adrian Sutil's management have told me that the Williams reports are false, and Force India are their first choice for 2012 #F1

10. Ant is off on a jolly again, so the 5Live team need a spare pair of hands.

Unfortunately @antdavidson will be missing Singapore as he is testing in the US, but we can tell you that John Watson will be standing in!
