F1 to adopt Wacky Races concept.
Speaking to Sky News this morning, FIA president, Jean Todt, has announced that, as of March 2019, the Formula One World Championship will consist of 11 different cars, 23 people and animals, plus three-time F1 champion and tax avoider, Lewis Hamilton. "Lewis will compete as normal," said Todt, "starting in pole position and driving a top spec formula one racing car." "The other racers will have complete autonomy to stop Lewis from winning by any means possible. They can smash into him at speeds of over 200mph, set fire to him, dynamite him, or even throw food at him." "Lewis' main rival will be a well-spoken, moustache-twirling villain with a wheezy sidekick henchman-dog. Ferrari will then proceed to design a purple high-powered rocket car from Swedish parts, and conjure plans for the plucky duo to thwart any attempt for Lewis to win the race and stash his cash in an off-shore tax haven." Jean Todt also went on to say that the F1 Championship had become nothing more than fast traffic and it needed more exciting racers to spruce up the event.
Other racers will include a group of midget gangsters, Red Max in a car/plane hybrid known as The Crimson Haybailer, and Nicole Scherzinger who will fly a Challenger 600 series Bombardier jet and hurl Andy Warhol paintings from the cabin, as Lewis attemps to complete a lap.
The British Grand Prix, which has become nothing more than a country fete masquerading as a worldwide event, will be moved from its current location and take place on the streets adjacent to Blackpool beach.

@movistaryamaha @motogp’s @maverickvinales25 and @valeyellow46 both recorded podium results at Sunday’s British Grand Prix. Maverick managed his rear tire perfectly to challenge for the win in the final stages of the race, and he ultimately finished second, while teammate Valentino Rossi led most of the race, but he was unable to fend off the competition in the final stages and took third place.
