I love his pictures of the drivers parade. Maybe he'll get some other drivers using it.

'**** it, I'm stuck in the gravel trap again'.

'Just went off at Eau Rouge, boy what a fun corner it is'

'Someone text me what does the green button do'

If you don't already follow Rubens on twitter you should, he last night told his twitter fans that he will give away goodies based on the number of followers he gets on his twitter page:

To my fans...

30 Thousand followers I will give away 5caps and a signed visor
40 Thousand it will be 5 Brawn Tshirts and my racing gloves
50 Thousand it will my racing suit
100 Thousand it will be my helmet and if we get there before the Brazilian GP I will give away a pass to watch the race from the Brawn pits.

So come on guys add yourself http://twitter.com/rubarrichello

Not my scene but Nelsihno is doing the same: http://twitter.com/NelsonPiquet_

he is a bit of a scrooge, I mean he earns fortune and he will give away only 5 caps and a signed visor if he collects 30K, I mean he should give away at least 5000 caps on 30.000 members, so that one of 6 gets a cap not one of 6000, thats nothing

http://twitter.com/NickHeidfeld

It is a bit weird actually. It is in the same style as his website, but has none of the race weekend comments he usually provides, and none of the preview and review pieces. He only has a few dozen followers too.

What do you reckon?

Possibly a fake, definitely not Nick himself, the PR department at best (and a bad one too!), unless Nick is one of those persons who talks about himself in third person. Some quotes:
"Green and stylish - thats how Nick's current helmet appears. Now you can decide how the next layout will be. "
"Für Nick verlief das Training heute Vormittag mit P19 nicht nach Plan."
"Mit dem 17. Startplatz steht Nick ein schweres Rennen bevor"

Well he certainly can't drive! He's got to have some sort of skill!


He is hot in the looks department. Thats not enough of an argument to keep him in F1 though.

He's cute in the small cute furry animal pet sort of way, but HOT? Sexy? Nah, I don't think so.

So there's even less argument to keep him in F1.

I like his twittering, though. :D

Getting rid of Nelsinho for F1 would be like Woody Allen's films since the 90s - not as funny as it used to be.

Forget the drivers, you should follow sniffpetrol on Twitter, I was laughing hard at their tweets today, selection below

After the Rubens radio conversation:

#F1: Love this pit radio 'just to confirm' business. 'Just to confirm, you want us to SMEAR YOUR VISOR WITH SOUP?' 'What...?'

#F1: 'Rubens, just to confirm... you want us to FILL YOUR HELMET WITH BEES?'

#F1: 'Rubens, just to confirm... you didn't want us to put any petrol in your car...'

#F1: 'Rubens, just to confirm, when you get out of the car you want to be ATTACKED BY A WOLF?'

#F1: 'Rubens, just to confirm, at the next stop you want us to FILL YOUR COCKPIT WITH JELLY?'

#F1: 'Rubens, just to confirm, you want your tyres to be COLDER THAN DEEP SPACE...?'

#F1: 'Rubens, just to confirm, you want to come BEHIND your team mate again...?'

On the variable weather

#F1: The weather at Nurburgring is so variable it can actually RAIN SUNLIGHT.

After the Jenson radio message

#F1: 'Mix 4 Jenson... the one with You Got To Show Me Love by Candi Staton on it...'

After Webber wins

#F1: The whole of Australia must be weeping with joy as they crowd around the one television.


sniffpetrol gets a thumbs up from me :rotfl:

Sniff Petrol are seriously funny bastards. :up:

Poor Nelson

Fernando raced well. But the data we looked at showed that he was 8 tenths faster than my pace in the race because of the car updates he had


The team have promised that me and Fernando will have the same car for the next race
