Jaime Alguersuari waves goodbye to teenager-dom today as he celebrates his 20th birthday. Here’s today’s round-up:
Could F1 get a second Spanish team?
“The Blanchimont Entry Tunnel, which is located just before Paul Frere Corner (formerly Stavelot), provides access from the outside of the circuit to a karting track on the infield. The incident has left a hole in the surface of the run-off on the outside of the corner, though the only damage to the track itself is some cracks in the asphalt.”
OK we’re not going to hit 10,000 followers before Melbourne but we have just passed the 7,000 mark. One lucky follower will win a very cool prize after the Australian Grand Prix, so if you’re not following F1 Fanatic on Twitter yet grab your free account and start following today.
Comment of the day
Going to the Australian Grand Prix? Make sure you catch up with the other F1 Fanatics heading to Albert Park:
Tom, Macca, The Pope – I’m at the race too, Sitting in Jones Stand on Sunday.
Want to meet up and have a beer/coffee/soft drink? There is a two hour break between Prac 3 and Qually and we could meet up 4pm under the Golf Course Giant Screen?
That way, everyone can get there if they are grandstand or general admission entry?
Let me know!

I’m planning a new series of articles designed for people who want to contribute guest articles. My plan is to have five different styles of articles to run on set days of the week and invite F1 Fanatic readers to submit their own. I’ll also produce some of the articles as well, and offer help and advice to anyone who’d like to write one.
Here’s the plan for the articles. If you’re interested in joining in or have any thoughts on the plan please post in the comments.
Monday – Poll
Put an issue of the day to a vote. Yesterday’s post on blue flags is an example of the intended format with the headings For, Against, I Say, You Say.
Thursday – Featured Driver
A biography of an interesting F1 driver (not a current member of the grid).
Friday – F1 Alternative
Make your case for another form of motor racing: recommend a non-F1 race or races that’s on during the coming weekend and introduce the category for non-fans. This was a series of articles a few years ago which I’d like to bring back.
Update: And a happy birthday to TommyC and KIBD as well
On this day in F1
Seven years ago today Kimi Räikkönen scored his first F1 victory in the Malaysian Grand Prix.
