A successful first day in the E21 saddle for Heikki Kovalainen sees the Finn right up at the sharp end heading into qualifying Follow @Lotus_F1Team Did your first day on track this weekend live up to expectations?

[Updated] The driver market this season seems both volatile and fluid, with many drivers in the balance and some big moves being made. The latest is the decision by McLaren, after much agonising, to drop Sergio Perez after just one season and replace him with Kevin Magnussen. The decision has not been announced by McLaren yet, but various news outlets have heard it in the last 24 hours from various sources and this site has had solid evidence that Perez has been dropped.
The world championship has been decided, but Formula 1 still has plenty of energy for its second visit to Austin, Texas, which proved a huge hit with teams, drivers and fans last season. Austin is the tenth different venue for the Formula 1 US Grand Prix, but this one is considered a real winner. The new Circuit of the Americas, which runs anti clockwise, is a wonderful mixture of many of the most famous circuits on the F1 calendar; it has more corners at over 250 km/h than Spa and more below 100kph than Hungary, which is quite a combination!
We are delighted to launch the JA on F1 2013 year book, which is now available to pre-order from today.

The book features a mixture of original posts from the JA on F1 website, plus extensive new material looking back on trends and developments during the year
