Sidepodcast - All for F1 and F1 for all

Tweets of the Week - Lots of rumours, my friends - Repeated silliness and keeping quiet on the future

Published by Christine

It's been a pretty quiet week on Twitter, as everyone seemed to come down from all the excitement of the Indian Grand Prix. With Abu Dhabi next on the agenda, there was just time for a weekend off before the packing and flights started up again. Also this week, F1 seems to have hit the mainstream and has littered itself across the TV schedules. Here are my top ten tweets of the past seven days.

1. It's the word 'again' that worries me. I love the idea of Mike coming to the rescue though.

Locked myself out of @MikeGascoyne

2. The organisers seem determined to make the Indian GP even more of a success.

Over 3000 people are being moved in to make improvements to the BIC based on teams feedback- fantastic commitment from Jaypee to #IndianGP !

3. Rubens is keeping quiet about his future...

4. ...but Williams have confirmed they're in talks with Kimi Räikkönen.

Would be great to have Raikkonen back in #F1 - but I'm not sure he and Williams are suited - hoping to be proved wrong, mind.

5. It was only for about ten or twenty seconds, but all my worlds collided.

Didn't think the day would come when Ron Dennis would be on Strictly ;-)

6. It seems as though F1 is all over the TV schedules at the moment, though.

F1 TV choice tonight: Mark Blundell on A Question of Sport, or Tamara Ecclestone: Billion $$ Girl... Hmmm.

7. This is some real dedication. Or he has quite a lot of work to do. Or both!

On board BA to Abu Dhabi. Full week ahead at Yas Marina Circuit. Apart from a few FOM TV guys, not many #f1 people going out this early.

8. Wurz has defected from my lovely Peugeot squad.

Toyota confirms that @alex_wurz , Kazuki Nakajima and former GP2 racer Nicolas Lapierre will drive its new LMP1 car next year

9. Surely the only answer to this is the hotel?

1 week to go until the 2011 #F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Tell us what you're most excited to see or do during the #AbuDhabi GP weekend? #UAE
