Finland's Turun Sanomat newspaper reports that the young Frenchman, who made his debut this year with Marussia and for 2013 will switch to Caterham, 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 car - also raced by Timo Glock - was overtaken 134 times this year, compared to 119 for fellow backmarkers Caterham, and 114 for HRT.
