Tweets of the Week - That's what we're talking about // Straight line testing, TV appearances, and fan forum fun

Published by Christine

There was information overload this week as six of the teams descended upon Sochi in Russia to demo Formula One to the expectant fans. Tweets, pictures and video poured back to us and it was excellent, if exhausting! There were plenty of other activities going on this week, though, and here are ten of the best tweets from the last seven days.
