1. Paul is taking to Twitter to float new tyre ideas now.

What do you think about the idea of a Qualifying tyre? A tyre giving max grip, 3 laps. Means zero driver error? Like the old days?

2. Someone needs to let Jenson know about this.

Best kept secret in the paddock: The cake down at Force India. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

3. It's about time someone got the opportunity to, er, stick it to the man.

Jenson making fun of 'the Vettel finger' during press conference and Vettel punches him in the arm in retaliation! Brilliant!

4. They don't always get it right, but McLaren do leave their drivers to get on with it when it matters.

Before I forget. Massive congrats to Martin Whitmarsh for letting JB and Lewis race. The sport owes a debt and Red Bull should watch

5. There's a price to pay for what is such an exciting year.

Hardest. Commentary. Ever. #spent

6. Looks better than you'd expect, smells worse than you'd expect.

Nick's car back in the garage - looks much better than you'd expect, does smell a bit chargrilled

7. Another Red Bull demo is on the cards.

I can confirm that Red Bull and David Coulthard will do an #F1 demo in Austin in August. Exact date/location unknown now.

8. Best not to go into the summer break with a grudge.

Magnanimous gesture from @LewisHamilton to personally apologise to Paul di Resta for nearly wrecking his race.

9. First time... so far. You never know what's going to happen.

Just landed in Geneva, we took off after Schumacher but he just landed after us so it's the first time I overtake him this year!

10. And that is it! F1 takes it's summer break and the factories shut down. Hibernation time.

Official factory closure - smells like summer holiday! Back for you at the 15 of August. Cheeeeeers!
