Tweets of the Week - Jetting off // Final preparations before the 2011 season gets underway

Published by Christine

This is our last Twitter roundup before the racing begins. By this time next week, we'll be looking at all the reaction from the first race of the year. Unfortunately, that means this week is all about people getting on planes, and trying to find their passport. Nevertheless, I have tried to find the best and the better from Twitter over the last seven days.

1. Chandhok keeps it on message, even when it has nothing to do with motorsport.

Just seen news the clock counting down to the 2012 Olympics in London stopped working after one day.... They should have got a Tag Heuer !

Frank Williams just said he should drive back to Northampton with me to check I've got the right braking points for all the roundabouts!
