Tweets of the Week - Who needs stewards when you've got Twitter? - All the reaction regarding Red Bull, Silverstone, and rule changes

Published by Christine

This week, teams and drivers prepared for the British Grand Prix, coped with the wet weather at Silverstone, and came through the other side with another race complete. Twitter has been filled with speculation over whether Red Bull did the right thing, about the new buildings at Silverstone, and about the ongoing regulation changes. Here, though, are my favourite ten tweets from the past seven days.

Week Ending: 11th July 2011

1. Following Hamilton's Twitter feed this week has shown how busy he's been, and why he made those comments about signing up for less work on his next contract.

Lots of media interest in lead up 2 GP. Here doing an interview with Radio One earlier, good fun

2. Another popular figure from F1 joins Twitter, but it's mostly been about NASCAR so far.

3. Those blue flags continue to wind up the Virgin team.

Our main problem seems to be because we had to stop at same time as everyone else we are now in blue flag hell and losing chunks of time.

4. A double DNF will not get Team Lotus down.

You know your real fans when they support on the bad days as well as the good. Thanks for the positive message guys, we're lucky to have you

5. A surprising public apology, and not a lucky coconut in sight.

Apologies to Force India fans. V should have had both cars finish in d top 10 with points but v messed up completely on strategy and pits

7. Some thoughts on the Mark Webber team orders discussion.

Drivers on a 1yr contract need to put themselves in the shop window this time of year. I believe that's why Webber had to do what he did.

8. Another nail in the coffin for those who think these drivers have the best job in the world.

10. Not quite F1 but a thought, nonetheless.

#F1 Amusing to see Indy drivers addressing post-incident issues they have with each other via Twitter. Who needs stewards?
