Pic breaks record for most times overtaken - Charles Pic has entered Formula One's history books by breaking an unenviable record.

Finland's Turun Sanomat newspaper reports that the young Frenchman, who made his debut this year with Marussia F1 and for 2013 will switch to Caterham F1, broke a record held for more than 20 years by Italian Stefano Modena.

In 1989, Modena's Brabham was overtaken no fewer than 68 times.

But this season, 22 year old Pic broke the record by losing position to another driver 70 times.

Indeed, Marussia's 2012 Formula 1 car, also raced by Timo Glock, was overtaken 134 times this year, compared to 119 for fellow back markers Caterham, and 114 for HRT F1.
