Two gems from last week's Autosport:

"The 32-year-old's German Grand Prix victory set a new record for the most starts before a maiden F1 win, eclipsing Ruben's (sic) Barrichello's 123-race mark."

"Nico Hulkenberg became the first driver since 2006 to win both GP2 races in a weekend with his double success at the Nurburgring. The German is the fourth driver to achieve the feat:
Nico Rosberg (Bahrain 2005)
Lewis Hamilton (Nurburgring, Silverstone 2006)
Nelson Piquet (Hungaroring 2006)
Giorgio Pantano (Monza 2006)
Nico Hulkenberg (Nurburgring 2009)"

It's just as well their website is worth the cost of the subscription, because I'm rapidly falling out of love with the magazine. Tony Dodgins is excellent, and Mark Hughes is generally insightful, but the rest is deeply unmemorable nowadays.
Thanks, GM, the world needs more cynicism...

Only joking, Autosport really should check the facts before posting (and maybe get a proofreader!)
