I knew F1 was corrupt, but not this corrupt

There has been talk for many years of the corruption in Formula 1 racing. But who knew they send out the results before a race has even begun.

Unfortunately for the Herald, F1 qualifying in Shanghai doesn’t happen until tomorrow evening!



If you read the story though you find out that qualifying is tomorrow:

Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso has responded sarcastically to the qualifying edge currently enjoyed by his teammate Felipe Massa, saying he can’t sleep and is losing his hair.

Massa has qualified ahead of Alonso in the past four races the first two this season and the last two of 2012 and if he does it again at Sunday’s Formula One Chinese Grand Prix it will represent the first time in Alonso’s career that he has been out-qualified by a teammate five straight times.

Once again the Herald misleads with their headlines.

  • The new Herald strategy is clear. Yesterday they released details on the 2103 budget. Today they tell you the result of tomorrow’s race. They’re printing the news before it even happens! This has to be the way the old MSM gets to survive!
