    So the movie "Jaws" is actually "Jaw and Skull"?

    If we're correcting history, then the Bond villain Jaws should have been called Teeths or Grillz.

    WTF is this :confused:
    Mika Salo has been interviewed in his own stream, and he had some interesting things to say. Salo is working as a steward in F1 (not sure if he's in all the races, but anyway)
    When asked about Kimi's and Alfa Romeos situation after disappointing season, Salo said they should be fine now when they get to use full power again.
    According to him, Ferrari engines had less fuel to use than competitors last season as the penalty for the cheating shenanigans the season before. FIA never publicly told what they had agreed with Ferrari.

    (sorry, they're speaking Finnish)

    I watched just enough of Peter Windsor’s YouTube interview to hear Flavio Briatore say Alonso broke his two upper front teeth (around 3:16), but he should be good to go for the start of the season.

    Edit: He’s also got a couple videos of Scarbs previewing the developments on the Alpha Tauri and Red Bull.

    Salo has now back pedaled on his comments, saying that if he really knew of any such penalties, he wouldn't leak it. It was supposedly just based on rumors he has heard.

    Ferrari deals are usually out in the open and the teams say "it's totally unfair but we will vote for them to keep it" aka Ferrari get extra money for being Ferrari

    Them refusing those vaccines won't get a single extra vaccine into the UK health system or make it any quicker.
    If they instead would have taken the offer, it would have lifted them out from the UK health system vaccination pool, essentially making it quicker for others. Also them being vaccinated would make the whole circus less of a hazard zone.

    It's just virtue signaling which helps no-one.

    look at us, we are rich and a rich oil nation gave us preferential treatment also we are going to saudi arabia yee haw

    its enough that nations have given them lessened travel restriction

    also bahrain could help nations who are struggling with vaccinations instead of giving it to some luxury sporting thing that doesnt really matter in the big picture

    Yes, they could and should, but they're not. Instead they're offering this, and refusing it is just virtue signaling which won't help anyone.
