Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

The launch season gets started properly later today as Ferrari unveil the first of this year’s new F1 cars. There’ll be a separate post up in a few hours to cover all the goings-on from the launch including the live coverage on Ferrari’s website.

Here’s today’s round-up:


Schumacher could race beyond 2012 (Autosport)

Michael Schumacher: “Mercedes believes in me and is giving me the chance for three years to have success. But it does not mean it has to end after three years.”

In deatil: Electrical wiring system (US F1)

Say what you like about US F1’s choice of drivers, but I like these videos they keep putting out.

Comment of the day

I agree with HounslowBusGarage’s take on the new-look Silverstone circuit:

This is the premier racing circuit in Britain making a new viewing spectacular for its visitors and a new, challenging high-spped-curve-straight-bends-straight sequence for the competitors.

Whats not to like?

Site updates

Apologies to anyone who was inconvenienced by the server move yesterday, hopefully everyone can now access the site. I am working on some of the other problems including the forum not being available and some characters being corrupt. Hope to make some progress on that today.

Happy birthday!

No F1 Fanatic birthdays today. If you want a birthday shout-out tell us when yours is by emailling me, using Twitter or adding to the list here.

On this day in F1

Takuma Sato turns 33 today. The Japanese driver missed out on an F1 return with Lotus this year. He started 90 F1 races for three different teams, but always with a Honda engine.
