Here’s today’s round-up:
Top F1 links from the past 24 hours:
This video shows the scene of Robert Kubica’s crash on Sunday shortly after it happened. Although there isn’t any particularly graphic footage, some readers may find it uncomfortable to review the moments after the accident unfolded. It does, however, give an impression of the speed he would have been going at when he crashed.
“No more news to report tonight. We will give you another update on Robert’s progress in the morning.”

“That opening [between the two sections of barrier] makes no sense. But, most of all, we shouldn’t have cars with so little protection at the front. It’s not the first time a crash like this happens – the Federation should think of something to protect the cockpit.”

Comment of the day
Jerome d’Ambrosio has a new fan:
He is awesome. A new favourite of mine, also so him and Wirth at Autosport International, very humble guy it seems.

Stevo wonders how and when did you get into F1?
The F1 Fanatic live Twitter app is up and running after developing a fault earlier this week. Thanks to Jamie for sorting it out.
A very happy birthday to Straightline!
On this day in F1
Bad news on this day five years ago as Spa-Francorchamps was dropped from the coming season’s calendar.
Happily it was reinstated in 2007 and with the arrival of d’Ambrosio hopefully this great circuit of F1’s past will continue to be part of its future.
