F1 Fanatic round-up: 14/2/2010

Posted on Author Keith Collantine

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:


Schumacher: Four teams are out front (Autosport)

“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

Thanks to BBT who managed to capture some data on the car’s stint lengths at Jerez. Here’s his times for Lucas di Grassi and Lewis Hamilton.

Site updates

Today we’re doing some work on the redesign hopefully in order to get it live before the start of the new season.

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

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.
