Tweets of the Week - Managing expectations // Turning mowing the lawn into a circuit design exercise

Published by Christine

Naturally, many of the tweets this week have been about the ongoing tragic circumstances in Japan. Everyone within the Formula One world tweeted their thoughts and prayers to those in need, and it's actually a beautiful thing to see. However, I've purposefully chosen tweets that stay away from the subject, else we'd have ten updates all saying the same thing.

So, with that in mind, here are ten of the best tweets from the past seven days.

1. Ex-Williams media man Liam Clogger has set up a new press service for F1, and already he's noticing some trends.

5. One helmet on another driver? This is just designed to confuse!

6. Webber says it was the dogs, but I wonder if he was actually mowing a circuit into his lawn on purpose.

7. During a Twitter Q&A, Virgin condense the procedure for making a new car.

In 140 characters? Aero concept, weight distribution, suspension loads, temperatur management and tight packaging. It took us nine months

8. Clearly the best grandstand ever. If only F1 fans were allowed to get creative with their weekend seating.

The crowd here in Sebring are becoming more creative with their grandstands! http://twitpic.com/498vjy

9. Some praise for the Red Bull boss.

Had an interesting lunch with Christian Horner. A man who speaks a lot of sense in a sport that seems to be increasingly short on ideas.

10. What will Hamilton's next project be, eh?

Lewis to be managed by Simon Fuller. Interesting given Lewis has always said he'd like to dabble in music / film etc.

At least it's not P Diddy though. Right? Although I can see Lewis on the books of Bad Boy Entertainment.
