Tweets of the Week - Eyeing up Ferrari's barcodes - Time for a rest as drivers take a break following the Canadian GP

Published by Christine

Settling in for a rest after the madness of the Canadian Grand Prix, teams and drivers had time to relax, cook, watch the football and host tours of their factories. It was a good week for F1 and Twitter.

Had a great weekend in Montreal, what a wicked city and a great result for the whole team! I especially enjoyed my move on Alonso! :-)

5. Once inside, the visitors get to question Mr Gascoyne.

Just done a Q&A session with Kids from the local primary school. Much more intelligent questions than from F1 journalists, and more fun

6. I think the HRT press officer might be disappointed.

Right! Time to stop getting everything ready for the #F1 Valencia race and enjoy Spain's football... Spain vs Switzerland!

7. Keeping an eye on the barcodes at all kinds of events.

After all the fuss about Ferrari removing the barcode from their F1 livery, note Ducati still have theirs prominent on team shirts. Puzzled.

8. The HRT press officer really was disappointed!

The spaniards really don't like losing at football !! They are really not happy at HRT F1 today !!

9. Pondering Ferrari's complaints about those backmarkers.

In any case the car that tripped up a clumsy Alonso most spectacularly was a Ferrari-powered Toro Rosso, not a backmarker he was lapping...

10. Combing Google and F1.

Google’s HTML PacMan is good fun. The ghosts are faster on the straights but you can leave them behind in the corners. Seems oddly familiar…
