Tweets of the Week - Lotus lapping rival new teams - All the reaction from the long and epic Canadian Grand Prix

Published by Christine

All the sports seemed to collide this week as journalists and drivers prepared for what turned out to be an epic Canadian Grand Prix, whilst at the same time cheering on their own countries in the World Cup. There was also the small thing of the Le Mans 24 Hour race going on at the same time. Twitter could barely cope! But here's a sample of the best tweets of the last week.

3. Heikki reluctantly picks a side.

4. Sadly, his race was shortlived.

Montreal. Tough track but fun. VERY slippery but hopefully another strong weekend ahead. Good work today but much more to do tomorrow...

By the way Petrov is always doing a very good job! Alguersuari as well..... Hope to see very good qualy!

7. A good point well made.

If you've got friends who still think overtaking is all about the cars and not about the circuit, make them watch Montreal over and over...

8. Mike Gascoyne and Lotus continue to do well.

Great race from Heikki, and jarno was flying before his problem. Great to be racing the midfield and lapped all other new teams

9. James Roberts considers sunglasses post-race.

Both Lewis and Jenson put on fresh jackets for the press conferences! Look at how shiny they are! #f1 #grandprix

10. Finally, a thought that is echoed across the globe.

Bar a short nap overnight, I've now been working for 36 hours. That's quite a lot. Whose daft idea was a Canada/Le Mans clash?
