There Is a Petition To Keep Amazon's Jeff Bezos From Coming Back to Earth

Earlier this month, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced that he and his brother Mark will be on board the maiden crewed flight of Bezos' aerospace company Blue Origin's New Shepard.

Christian Horner: ‘Great performance from Max’

Christian Horner, team principal of Red Bull Racing, reflects after today’s qualifying for the French Grand Prix: “It was another great performance from Max today and it’s fantastic to see him take our first pole position in France.
