Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

It’s the final day of F1 testing and I’ll be at the circuit in Barcelona once again to see who looks quickest ahead of the first race of 2010.

More from the test later, here’s today’s round-up:

Comment of the day

Away from testing, Adam the Owl has taken the plunge and bought Grand Prix tickets for Spa:

Just been reading through this thread after I finally bit the bullet and bought GA tickets for this years Belgium GP ?ǣ my first GP abroad after seeing 4 at Silverstone across the years.

Coming over with a mate, and having read a number of threads elsewhere that were not very complimentary about official campsites I have been brought back to the camping idea by this thread! So hopefully we?ll be able to stay at the elephant, and have a cracking weekend!

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday to (the unfortunately-named) Bastardo!

On this day in F1

Mario Andretti, 1978 F1 world champion, turns 70 today.

He was born in Italy in 1940, though the area he was from became part of Yugoslavia at the end of World War Two. His family emigrated to America when he was 15 and he later became an American citizen.

Andretti also won the Indy Car championship, Indianapolis 500 and Daytona 500, making him unquestionably one of the most versatile drivers ever to win the F1 title.
