Published by Christine

It doesn't seem that long ago that the F1 Advent Calendar began, talking of pre-season goings on and building up to the big reveal in Bahrain. We've been through the ups and downs of the entire 2010 season, culminating in a double championship success for Red Bull in Abu Dhabi. Twenty-five short episodes later, and our season review is complete.
