Tweets of the Week - When football and Formula One collide // The World Cup infiltrated our F1 Twitter streams

Published by Christine

The final of the 2010 World Cup took place just after the British Grand Prix was complete, so once celebrations at Red Bull were done, it was all about Spain versus Holland. Our tweets this week cover the build up to both events, from drivers completing their many PR assignments to teams battling it out in their respective motorhomes.

6. Post-race and the team seem happy with the result, even if there's still no sign of Senna.

Great! The 4th two-car finish of the season, and the 2nd in a row for Hispania #F1 Team! Good job done by @karunchandhok and @SakonYamamoto

8. Jonathan Legard stirs up those rivalry rumours some more.

9. Attention turns to the World Cup final.

Still a lot of people in the paddock watching football, including Alonso and Vettel. De la Rosa is on a plane right now. Bad planning!

Alonso brandishing replica cup. At least he got his hands on a trophy of sorts this weekend.
