A year after one of the most controversial finishes in the history of Formula One, Sunday’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was anything but. Max Verstappen, as usual this season, was far ahead of the rest on his way to a record-extending 15th win of the season. “Incredible to win again here, 15th win of the season is unbelievable,” Verstappen said. “It’s been really enjoyable to work with the whole team and to be able to achieve something like this this year.” At the track where he beat Lewis Hamilton last year – after a restart call that is still hotly


Max Verstappen, with a record fifteen victories for the season, and Red Bull are champion driver and team for 2022. Well done. It's also nice to see Ferrari rising to second place overall, topping third place Mercedes, which had dominated during the 2010s. Even the slowest car in the field in Saturday's Q1 was within 1.7 seconds of the fastest car. Formula 1 is more competitive than in decades past. 2023 season begins in March.

Strong work. Looks like Lewis Hamilton is getting superseded which is what happens in any sport. Still they are all very accomplished drivers and athletes to run these races.

Indeed, #1. Great season. There are only a handful of men in the world that can drive a F! car at its limit.

Back in the late '80s in Senna's prime when I was a new Formula 1 fan, there was a "107% rule" which excluded cars that could not qualify within seven percent of the pole sitting car. Back in that day, some cars and even some drivers barely belonged. (I think of Andrea de Crasheris.) Now the engines from Mercedes (4 teams), Ferrari (3), Red Bull Honda (2), and Renault (1) are very similar in output, with the 98 cubic inch (1.6 liter V-6) turbocharged (up to 5.0 bar) engines delivering about 1,000 bhp to the rear wheels, plus 160 bhp hybrid on top of that. What's not to like about it? All the drivers, who have the FIA Super License, are amazingly talented drivers whose capabilities are out of this world. We will miss Sebastian Vettel, who retired today after a great career with four World Championships. Inspired job, Seb! 2023 season begins in four months. We'll be there for it. Years ago when Ferrari was producing one of their incredible, pricey customer cars with performance at the edge of what's possible, aided by Ferrari driver Michael Schumacher, some journalist, getting carried away, said the performance was "like a Formula 1 car." Michael heard about what was said, smiled, and replied, "It's fast, but it's nothing like a Formula 1 car."

Win the pole; lead the parade to the #1 step on the podium. F1 is boring as racing, a great display of technology. The equipment is 90% of the outcome.

The joke these days is that if you put the Bill of Rights to a vote, it would lose. The latest example of this decline in intelligence is Oregon, where voters narrowly passed an anti-gun measure so ghastly that the Second Amendment has been “rendered superfluous.” Now, there’s a run on gun stores, and civil liberties advocates have begun the fight to once again “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity” and reclaim the rights the Declaration of Independence stated were “self-evident” and “endowed by our Creator.” Don’t kid yourself: It’ll be a tough sell in Oregon, where wokeness

Amid bombshell revelations that the FBI embedded numerous informants in two militia groups accused of plotting to overthrow the government on January 6, FBI Director Christopher Wray finally is facing some heat. During a House Homeland Security Committee hearing on Tuesday, Representative Clay Higgins (R-La.) angrily demanded to know more details about the use of FBI informants related to the Capitol protest. Higgins twice asked Wray whether FBI informants disguised as Trump supporters were planted inside the building even before protesters gained entry. When Wray offered his usual obfuscating tap dance about protecting sources and methods—“the suggestion that the FBI’s confidential human sources or FBI employees

Al Sharpton was BLM before there was a BLM and its grift is closely modeled on his work and that of Jesse Jackson. Sharpton’s habits aren’t news to anyone. The latest developments just reaffirm that the National Action Network is not only Sharpton’s political platform, but maintains his lifestyle. Rev. Al Sharpton’s charity nearly doubled his compensation and also shelled out close to $300,000 for private jets so that he and other bigwigs could attend “important gatherings.” The National Action Network paid Sharpton $348,174 in 2021 as its president and CEO and gave him a hefty bonus of $278,503 — plus $22,117 worth of benefits for total compensation of $648,794,

Back in January of this year, the Canadian province of Quebec announced a plan to impose a tax on the unvaccinated. Officials there claimed that most of the impacts on the healthcare system were being caused by unvaccinated people and that the vaccinated should not be made to shoulder the costs. The following month, after a large outcry from the public, the plan was scrapped. But the government never gave up on the idea entirely. Some are still suggesting that the plan could be retooled and brought up for consideration again. In case that idea moves forward in a substantial way, we should take a look

On Friday, Judge Loretta Preska ordered that sealed documents about eight Epstein associates must be unsealed despite the assertion of one of the subjects that the release of the documents would “wrongfully harm (his) privacy and reputation.” “Among those whose names are mentioned in the documents are Emmy Tayler, Ghislaine Maxwell’s former personal assistant, who was accused of taking part in the sexual abuse of minors,” the Daily Mail reports. “Judge Preska overrode objections from Tom Pritzker, the

As most are well aware by now, the disgraced founder of FTX Sam Bankman-Fried was the Democrat party’s second-largest donor just behind George Soros. As reported by The Gateway Pundit, in the 2020 presidential election, Bankman-Fried dished millions to the Biden campaign and followed it up by handing out over $40 million dollars to democrats in the 2022 primaries and midterms. Forbes reported last year that Bankman-Fried also donated to six RINOs who voted to impeach President Trump.

The Biden administration will soon ask the Supreme Court to overturn a lower court decision blocking the implementation of the president's student loan debt cancellation plan. The Department of Justice on Thursday asked a federal appeals court to end the injunction on the plan's implementation while indicating in the same filing that it would turn to the Supreme Court to list a separate appeals court ruling, the Associated Press reported. Biden announced his plan in late August to forgive student debt up to $10,000 for those earning less than $125,000 annually and up to $20,000 for Pell Grant recipients.

As bad as Arizona may be, there’s a reason that Philly still leads the nation in fraud in contested statewide elections. (I’m not going to bother mentioning New York or Los Angeles, where Karen Bass was predictably appointed mayor by way of a whole lot of late-arriving ballots for the second time.) What’s remarkable is not that things like this happen in Philly, but how unremarkable they are. Pennsylvania governor-elect Josh Shapiro, who rose to prominence by downplaying Republican claims of voter fraud, charged one of his former campaign consultants on Wednesday with “wide-scale” forgery of voter ballots.

Former U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan said on a Sunday morning news program that he is a "never-again-Trumper" and that Donald Trump is "unelectable." Ryan, a Republican who represented Wisconsin's 1st Congressional District for 20 years, was speaker of the House from 2015 to 2019. He told correspondent Jonathan Karl on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" in the wake of Trump's announced run that Republicans would lose if they backed Trump for president in 2024. “We get past Trump, we start winning elections. We stick with Trump, we keep losing elections. That’s just how I see it," Ryan said.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) telling people to “stop” taking ivermectin for COVID-19 was informal and just a recommendation, government lawyers argued during a recent hearing. “The cited statements were not directives. They were not mandatory. They were recommendations. They said what parties should do. They said, for example, why you should not take ivermectin to treat COVID-19. They did not say you may not do it, you must not do it. They did not say it’s prohibited or it’s unlawful. They also did not say that doctors may not prescribe ivermectin,” Isaac Belfer, one of the lawyers, told the court during the Nov. 1 hearing in federal court

(Tweet) Naomi Biden married Peter Neal, a former Hillary Clinton campaign intern, in front of 250 guests at the White House. Joe Biden is turning 80 on Sunday so his granddaughter’s wedding celebration this weekend worked as a cover to distract from the media focusing on his old age.
