Verstappen arrived in Baku for Sunday’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix leading the drivers’ championship for the first hermes farandole necklace replica

“I think Lewis said after the race he does not want to play those things, so we just have to focus on what we have to do on the track anyway, which I think we do, and that is also the best.
“Whatever is said [in the press conference], sometimes it can be a bit emotional as well after a race or before a race. It also sometimes depends on how the question is asked.

Brussels misses dealing with Michael Gove, EU sources said as they accused David Frost of stoking up Unionist anger at the Northern Ireland Protocol. Lord Frost took over responsibility for negotiations with the EU over the Protocol from his fellow Cabinet member in February, amid growing fears that Mr Gove was too soft on Brussels. But one EU diplomat told : “Gove’s professional, less emotional approach was the more logical one from where we sit.” Mr Gove is said to have built up aNicola Sturgeon forced to reassure parents over misleading Covid claims
Nicola Sturgeon has been forced to reassure parents that the risk to children from Covid 19 is “very low” after her Health Secretary made “scaremongering” claims which were dismissed by doctors. The First Minister stressed that nobody in the Scottish Government “is trying to alarm people” and that Humza Yousaf “used a word that was not the correct word to use” when he claimed 10 young children had been hospitalised in the last week “because of Covid”.
