F1 Fanatic round-up
McLaren are set to launch their 2012 F1 car today. F1 Fanatic will have pictures of the car as soon as it appears.
Top F1 links from the past 24 hours:
“Still gobsmacked by the Sutil decision given that CCTV showed the other guy attacked first and Adrian just tried to push him away. Also worrying when judge makes it clear that outcome influenced by the fact he was famous. Funny kind of justice in Germany…”
“Sutil disappointed about Hamilton not showing up at the trial in Munich. ‘It would have been a nice gesture by him.’”
“The Williams-Renault FW34 will be revealed on February 7th. Toro Rosso launch the STR7 on February 6th at Jerez. Added to the F1 Fanatic Calendar.”
“Lotus has boosted its management structure with the appointment of Thomas Mayer as its new chief operating officer.”

Comment of the day
I don’t always agree with the comments I choose for Comment of the Day – but I’m behind this one from The Limit one hundred percent:
I hope Rubens Barrichello gives Indycar a go, he’s still got what it takes and it would be a great thing for American open-wheel racing to have a driver of his standing in the series.
As a die-hard Indy fan, there has not been much cheer in recent months since the tragic death of Dan Wheldon. Thank God, at last some possible good news for a change!

Happy birthday to Cliffery, Kutigz and pmelton!
