Tweets of the Week - We're gonna need a bigger cabinet // Testing, visiting new tracks and more keep the drivers talking

Published by Christine

You'd be forgiven for forgetting it wasn't a racing weekend as Twitter has been full of teams and drivers using their spare time to the best advantage. Lotus went ahead and did some straight-line testing, Chandhok was on loan to get a peek at the new Korea track, whilst the DTM guys were busy, busy. I've narrowed it down to ten topics, but there are multiple tweets this week. Who would have thought 140 characters was not enough?

9. You need to follow all of @karunchandhok's tweets over the weekend for a great insight into his time at Korea. Here are the most important ones though.
