2. I love the idea of Timo sharing more, but I probably won't look. It's bound to be depressing.

3. I'm going to be honest and say I didn't notice he'd gone, but still a big welcome back!

4. I suppose they have to be smart to be able to offer something to the smart F1 people.

Back in the office after two days in New York visiting General Electric for the sponsorship announcement. Met lots of very clever people

5. Something else I didn't know. These Q&As can be quite useful!

“@joelhatton: @H_Kovalainen is it true you have a bleep in your ear when you have to change gear !!!!!!!” Yes not very loud tho

8. What other crossovers could we have?

Ah, I do wish they would introduce the 'gentlemen start your engines' call into F1!! Makes me smile each time I hear it!

9. Weather forecasts look slightly warmer for the upcoming weekend.

After the wet Canadian GP, loving the prospect of 'wall-to-wall sunshine' that @radarguruf1 is predicting for Valencia http://bit.ly/lGZfJt

10. Martin Brundle probably has the most sensible view of the speculation over the future of F1 on the BBC.

I understand everything at BBC is under review for savings including sports rights. We can only keep making our best F1 shows + wait to see
