Apologies for the very late appearance of today’s F1 Fanatic round-up. I had a bit of a nightmare journey back from Jerez (or, rather, from Stansted Airport) and only made it home in the very small hours of the morning.
There will be a few more updates from the test on the site later today. Here’s the belated Valentine’s Day round-up, with 0% romantic content:
“We have four that I think are the major teams, and others that look very interesting such as Sauber, the car is quite quick, and the Renault – there is a question mark how quick it is.”
Comment of the day
Today we’re doing some work on the redesign hopefully in order to get it live before the start of the new season.
On this day in F1
Ricardo Rodriguez was born on this day in 1942. He was the first Mexican driver to start a round of the world championship, at the Italian Grand Prix in 1961.
Ricardo was killed during practice for the first non-championship Mexican Grand Prix in 1962. The circuit in Mexico City was eventually named after Ricardo and his brother Pedro, who won races for BRM and Cooper in F1 in the sixties.
