Tweets of the Week - Lucas is number one, briefly - Training schedules, taller drivers and thoughts on the European race

Published by Christine

No one was expecting the fallout from the European Grand Prix, and this week Twitter really showed that. From a calm build up to a sudden burst of criticism, anger, and most of all confusion. It all played out under our noses, but here are the best of the week's offerings.

4. Williams have to adjust their plans according to height.

So Rubens will be running the blown rear wing, but the Hulk won't as the length of his legs restrict him from operating it correctly.
