F1 Fanatic round-up
In the round-up: Jenson Button says doing triathlons helped him improve as a driver, after running his own in London.

“The system – essentially a computer programme which can be installed on any IT system – allows doctors to get a constant picture of how a child is doing by comparing several different clinical measurements.”
Motogp riders are real hardcore, Stoner gonna be riding today with a cast around his ankle!
