F1 Fanatic round-up: 31/1/2010

Posted on Author Keith Collantine

Two more car launches today – the BMW Sauber breaks cover at 1.30pm British time followed by the Renault R30 around two hours later. Neither team has released details of any live broadcasts for the unveilings, but once the cars appear for the first time I’ll try to get pictures up as quickly as possible.

Until then, here’s the Sunday round-up:


Remember when… Mastercard Lola existed

Dank takes a look back at the disastrous Lola F1 entry of 1997.

Kimi Raikkonen (official site)

Following Kimi R?ikk?nen’s move to the world rally champinship? Make sure you get a look at his re-launched website with video of him in the Citroen C4 WRC.

Michael Schumacher’s motor boat for sale (eBay)

The boat is called “Corinna” and is selling for 62,050 (?53,800).

Comment of the day

Tim made a good recommendation for a non-F1 series to watch this year, but he faces a classic F1 Fanatic dilemma…

The FIA historic F1 series is usually good value a field full of Cosworth DFVs, historic Lotus, Williams, Arrows, Brabhams, Tyrrells, McLarens, Marches and maybe the odd Ferrari as well. They make a fantastic noise and the drivers actually race.

Ive tentatively put the Brands Hatch round in the diary but it falls on my wedding anniversary so Ill have to convince the wife to let me go.

Site updates

Still working on the forum problem I’m afraid.

Happy birthday!

On this day in F1

It’s ten years to the day since Jordan launched the EJ10. Although the team expected to build on its strong form of the previous year – when Heinz-Harald Frentzen won twice and remained in the championship hunt until late in the year – the team had hit its peak and 2000 was the beginning of their slip down the field. At the time it must have only seemed like a setback, but within a few years Eddie Jordan had sold his team to the Midland Group.
