Midland’s Monteiro made of metal

My favourite reviews of race weekends normally come from the ‘Facts & Stats’ column at Autosport.com (I think Ted is your favourite, Alex?), and this week it ended with two fascinating and funny figures. Firstly:

“There’s no solid evidence suggesting Midland’s Tiago Monteiro is made of Teflon, but he’s developed a remarkable ability to emerge unscathed from on-track incidents, and Sunday was his 24th finish in 26 races, despite having two collisions.”

And secondly:

“With safety car driver Bernd Maylander celebrating his 35th birthday on Monday, he has the not-inconsiderable bragging rights of having led the F1 field for more laps this year in his AMG Mercedes (19 laps) than the McLaren-Mercedes team (15 laps).”

Great stuff.
