  1. Alianora you are a legend!

  2. I’ve has an e-mail saying D Winn’s looking at this data as well. It may well be that he finishes his calculations before me.

    Might want to hold your fire there Alianora I’ve had some stuff through from D Winn and someone else and it’ll be up on the site shortly. If you’ve got any extra stuff though please do send it!

    In the Kimi and Massa teammate stats, I assume that you have included Australia in the qualifying but not in the races. With the technical problems I would assume that Australia should either include both the qualifying and the race, or both qualifying and the race should just be excluded.

    Melanie – good spot, no Australia should have been included because, of course, Raikkonen finished. I’ll fix that.
