Published by Christine

There's been more sports action this past week, including racing in the US, and the start of the Premier League football season. However, our intrepid F1 tweeters are starting to gear up for the return of Formula One, as the summer break winds its way slowly towards its end. Some are counting down the days to Spa already.

1. I wonder what the treatment is for such a diagnosis.

Didn't Team Lotus expect to be in the midfield this year? second year syndrome strikes again!

2. Ant continues to recover from his injuries.

Woke up (in pain) at 6:20 but I'm 'challenging myself' to get to 7:00 before taking any painkillers. Isn't that just a little bit wrong?

First day of rehab today. Pain has subsided already and finally off the painkillers. Even managed to hold my son for first time in 10 days!

3. There's not an awful lot of important headlines doing the rounds.

#F1 Villeneuve says Raikkonen did not deserve his title


That will be a popular story


Remember, don't shoot the messenger..


4. It's a good question, and one we may have to ask a lot more in the future.

Is the BBC actually axing Spooks, or just showing edited highlights of half the episodes while Sky shows the series in full?

10. One hundred races is an excellent achievement.

So Spa is my 100th Grand Prix as a commentator so I need a special car to drive to Belgium in. Well I don't but any excuse is a good excuse
