Alexander Rossi, Marussia, Spa-Francorchamps, 2014Less than 24 hours after Marussia announced Alexander Rossi would make his F1 race debut this weekend the unfortunate driver found out he had missed out on his chance as Max Chilton would be driving after all.

Meanwhile in the paddock several stars of the sport were taking part in the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for Motor Neurone Disease/Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

Here are the Twitter highlights from Friday at Spa-Francorchamps.

First practice

Two drivers were preparing for their Formula One debut in the morning session, but one of them would shortly lose the opportunity.

The paddock heard the news about Max Chilton returning to the Marussia seat in place of Alexander Rossi – except for Rossi himself, who only found out after the session.
