Countdown to 2013 Formula One season: 53 days

Japanese ex-F1 driver Yuji Ide is 38 today.
Skilled young Dutch driver Pieter Schothorst is 21 today.

On This Day:
Jacques Lafitte won the 1979 Argentine Grand Prix from pole. It was Elio de Angelis’s debut race. A crash on the first lap meant it had to be restarted.

Speculation from German newspaper Bild suggests that Timo Glock and Marussia are going to part company. The German driver has been at the team since 2010. This means there may now be three free seats in F1 – Force India, Caterham and Marussia.
Toto Wolff may also be on the move, possibly to Mercedes.
