Tweets of the Week - Survival of the fittest // Timo Glock becomes a difficult patient

Published by Christine

With the season finally starting to creep ever closer, drivers have upped their training regimes and are tweeting about their progress. Sadly, Timo Glock had a bit of a setback with the onset of appendicitis but he's recovering nicely, albeit slower than he would like.

Keeping an eye on the twists and turns in the health of our drivers has been a priority this week, and here are ten of the best tweets from the last seven days.

1. Paul di Resta seems to be setting himself up for a post-F1 career before he's even started.

Back home now. Great morning with the @BBCBreakfast. Really cool to see how it all works.

6. Ferrari have always had a way with words.

Ferrari say they have renamed their F1 car yet again to "make it clear even to the thickest of people" that it is not a truck.

7. It's a good idea in principle, but in practice...

I don't get this 'The Chain to No1' idea. Surely F1 fans already have it in their music collection. I have, I'm not going to buy it again!

8. Weather watching already, but it could make things even more intriguing.

With Australia chilly, and Barcelona not hot - it means Pirelli's first proper hot running on 2011 cars will be FP1 in Malaysia. Interesting

9. One of our favourite pairings has split for the coming season.

I wish all the best to @H_Kovalainen. Unfortunately we couldn't agree with the team about some things so it's time for new challenges.
