On Thursday, Owen Leuellen released the music video for his song ‘FLAVOR’ featuring Gaia Cauchi, immediately catching everyone’s attention.

The video, which has since shot to #2 on Trending for Music on YouTube, is directed & produced by Steven Levi Vella & LEVIPLUS and brings a touch of retro flavour to the Maltese music scene.

With summer vibes galore, a catchy hook and eye candy visuals for days, Owen Leuellen’s latest track is the Maltese summer hit we didn’t know we needed. To top it all off, the tongue-in-cheek video with Owen & Gaia’s chemistry on set is contagious and we’re already looking forward to the weekend.

F1 star Daniel Ricciardo to leave McLaren by the end of season
Aug 24 2022 Share

Daniel Ricciardo and McLaren have mutually agreed to terminate the contract one year earlier than planned, as the eight time winner departs at the end of the 2022 campaign. 

The Australian had joined McLaren for 2021 on a three year deal. Despite securing the team’s first win since 2012 at Monza last year, he could not match his team mate Lando Norris’ pace. 

As Formula 1 returns from the summer break, Ricciardo and McLaren revealed on the eve of the Belgian Grand Prix that they would complete the remaining 9 races before going separate ways.

On their part, McLaren said they will announce who will partner Norris in 2023 in due course. Meanwhile, the driver himself hinted at being keen on staying in F1. 

“I’ll be announcing my own future plans in due course but regardless of what this next chapter brings, I have no regrets and am proud of the effort and work I gave McLaren, especially the win in Monza, last season” he said. 

“I’ve enjoyed working with everyone at McLaren both trackside and back in Woking and will be giving my all on and off track as we enjoy the remainder of the season together. I’ve never been more motivated to compete and be a part of a sport that I love so much and look forward to what comes next.”

Porsche 911: 7 cool facts about Malta’s favourite sports car

Don’t let your chance to win a 911 drive away
Aug 24 2022 Share

The Porsche 911 is an iconic and popular sports car, famed for its looks as well as its performance. Accordingly, the 911 is firmly cemented in the hearts of many car enthusiasts as an all-time favourite.

There’s nothing like the sweet sound of a 911 and while there’s a lot that makes the Porsche such a special vehicle, it’s a sports car that you can drive every day. And trust us, you’ll want to.

Few cars manage to reach the legendary status of the Porsche 911, but even with so many enthusiasts, it still has some secrets up its sleeve. So, in honour of this legendary performance machine, enjoy 7 fun facts about the Porsche 911:

1. There are 1,304 Porsches registered in Malta most of which are 911s, which remains Porsche’s most popular model to date.

2. For over five decades, every single 911 ever made has come out of the same factory in Stuttgart, Germany. As well as being a cool quirk, this guarantees the same quality for every 911 manufactured.

3. Even more astounding is that two thirds of the 911 models ever produced have remained operational and can still function today.

4. Ferdinand “Butzi” Porsche, son of Porsche founder Ferdinand “Ferry” Porsche, was the main designer in charge of the style of the very first Porsche 911 editions.

5. Ever noticed the similarities between this luxury supercar and the Volkswagen Beetle? It’s because both cars were designed by Ferdinand Porsche.

6. The famous 911 was originally introduced as the Porsche 901, but its name had to be changed due to Peugeot protesting that they owned the rights to naming cars using three digits with a “zero” in the middle.

7. The rare Turbo S model is among the quickest cars in the world, and will launch to 60mph in just 2.7 seconds, thanks to its beefy 650-horsepower engine.

Bonus: With stellar performance, top-of-the-line luxury and astonishing comfort – the Porsche 911 Carrera is the perfect car. What’s even more amazing is that could be yours!
