F1: F1 Records: Valencia update by Mathias Olaf Uncertain
26th Jun 2012
The distressing sight of Michael Comebacker on the podium at the weekend means that not only has he extended his record of F1 podiums... podia... whatever..., but continues inexorably to extend his record of points finishes. Damn him. The only comfort we take from Valencia was that he was clearly as surprised as anyone to find himself back on the podium for what we emphasise was the flukey first flukey time since his disappointing return to grand prix racing.

Nicky Iceberg's fastèst lap around the streets of Valencia means that he joins the illustrious list of flap-holders for the circuit, which also includes Speed-and-Thrash Metal, Jenson Buttock, Yessa Massa and Time O'Clock of all people in a Tonkatoyota of all things. But this, along with Fernando Alonshole's win, fails to do more than lightly dent Metal's overall dominance of the Spanish circuit, which must slightly rankle the Spaniard (hic!).

In other news:
No-one in 2012 can beat Metal's record of most podiums/podia/whatever in a season (shared with Comebacker), since no-one has scored more than 4 (Alonshole and Who is Hamilton?) and there are only 12 races left. (Pedant's note: we don't think it would be legal any more, but if Pinin Farina and Maurice Indignant could each be both second and third in the 1955 Argentine Grand Prix, then anything's possible.)

The management would like to apologise for the fact that the F1 Records page is still falling somewhat short of the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the statistics. We would say "normal service will resume as soon as possible", but clearly it already has. Thank you for your indulgence.
