Sidepodcast - All for F1 and F1 for all

Tweets of the Week - Who would you want at the after-party? - Branching out from Twitter, and shooting down contract rumours

Published by Christine

With a damp weekend at Belgium put firmly behind us, Formula One is turning its attention to Monza. Tweets have been pouring in with excitement about the upcoming race, whether it's because of potential action, DRS tweaks, or just the simple fact that Monza has acres of history and is something special. Here are ten of my favourite tweets from the past seven days, featuring thoughts on Monza and more!
