The race exceeded expectations with it having many twists and turns. Red Bull coming into this weekend where viewed as the favourites but unfortunately for them 3 of the 4 Red Bull powered engine cars failed to complete the race. Red Bull Racing drivers Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez and sister team Alpha Tauri’s Pierre Gasly all had engine pump issues that forced them to retire from the race. Verstappen was in second place battling Charles Leclerc when the issue came up.

Mercedes’s duo of Lewis Hamilton and George Russell had a surprisingly successful end to the weekend. Following Max’s and Sergio’s retirement, the German team managed to finish the race in an impressive p3 and p4 with Lewis Hamilton grasping the final podium place. This came to a surprise for many fans after their lackluster practice and qualifying performances.

The two other Ferrari powered teams of Haas and Alfa Romeo surprised a lot of people with Haas’s Kevin Magnussen finishing in p5 whilst both Alfa Romeo drivers Valterri Bottas and Zhou Guanyou finishing in the points. Magnussen has only been with the American team for a handful of weeks following their controversial dismissal of Russian Nikita Mazepin.

British megateam McLaren were the most disappointing team of the weekend. Both of their cars didn’t look fast enough in both qualifying and race pace. Lando Norris who started the race in 13th place ended up in 15th whilst Daniel Ricciardo who started the race in a disappointing 18th, finished the race in 14th. It is being reported that this bad performance was due to broken breaks.

'Tax refund, more like free pizza', local pizzeria posts cheeky ad following cheque distribution

There are marketing tactics… and then there are marketing tactics and a local pizzeria has embraced the recent distribution of tax refund cheques with a cheeky ad promoting their latest offer.

Coronations, based in Xagħra Gozo, posted a photo of the tax refund cheques captioned ‘Tax Refund? More like FREE PIZZA’, going on to promote their limited time offer of a free pizza with an order of two other pies, available from Monday to Thursday.

Unfortunately, a recent post on their Facebook page suggests that the 2+1 offer is no longer available, so we’ll just have to wait for the next cheeky ad from this Gozitan restaurant.

What do you think of this advertisement?

Bernard Grech challenges Abela to publish Żejtun villa report to see who is 'serial tax evader'

During today’s Nationalist Party rally in Dingli Street, Sliema, Bernard Grech challenged Prime Minister and Labour Party leader Robert Abela to publish a report on his Żejtun villa, which he lent to Russian passport hopefuls.

Times of Malta had revealed that Abela had rented out the villa to two Russian passport hopefuls, who must abide by by ‘strict residency requirements’ as proof of a genuine link with Malta. The report also highlighted that ‘thousands of euros’ were made from the villa rental, which is also built in an ODZ.

In relation to recent revelations of questionable negotiations with Christian Borg and the rental of the Żejtun villa, Grech went on to appeal to the Labour Party leader to “stop thinking of himself and for once, think of others.” The PN leader stated that a vote for the Nationalist Party is not a vote to give power to himself or the PN, but to not allow others to do what they wish with the country.

"Chris Fearne is a liar", Bernard Grech addresses PN supporters at Sliema rally

During the Nationalist Party rally held in Dingli Street, Sliema, PN leader Bernard Grech addressed party supporters ahead of the March 26 election.

Grech stated how the Nationalist Party remained positive, proactive and focused on the change that is needed, highlighting that not more than 3 days after the electoral campaign, the PN came out with a clear vision which has been built and discussed with experts for years. Grech highlighted that the party’s vision remains one of solutions, while ‘others’ waited three weeks to ‘copy’ the PN’s manifest, stating that the difference between the two parties is that the people know where they stand with the Nationalist Party.

He pledged that if elected, the Nationalist Party will ensure more work and better pay, highlighting that the PN has a plan for Malta leading up to 2030, while the Labour Party ‘operates on a day to day basis’.

Outlining a recently scheduled debate between both leaders, Bernard Grech reiterated how Deputy Leader Chris Fearne showed up to the debate stating that Abela was ‘preoccupied’. Grech went on to state how he later found out that rather than being abroad or preoccupied, he was walking somewhere in Malta, stating that the Deputy Prime Minister is ‘also a liar’.
