While this is absolutely NOT funny at A-L-L, you've got to admit it's rich, since it regards FIA President Jean Todt's Pet Project, for which he's been rightly accused of spending way to much of the Formula One Circus's time & resources upon, with F1 and Road Safety being somewhat counter culture at the very least eh?
But the most ironic part of this is how Formula 1's traipsing off to Azerbaijan this summer to host a Grand Prix not only on the same weekend as the legendary 24 Heurs du Mans, but also in a country whose roadside deaths are five times higher than the UK's; where reportedly anybody can buy a Driver's license on the Subway! As how's that road safety working out Monsieur Todt?
And that's before we even get to the countless Human Rights violations, numerous Political Prisoners or denying The Guardian access to report upon last year's European Games! But who said Sports aren't Political; Oh Never Mind!
