“Nobody knows about the constructive meetings we have with the team between races and over race weekends, I don’t think it’s anything new,” he added. “I always try and be direct, and I’m glad if you liked it, but I wasn’t happy obviously in that situation.
“But that’s racing, that’s emotions, it’s so hard to describe the feeling when you’re in the car, we’re not in a tea party, we’re in an elite top sport and I want to do well, I want the team to do well, so we race with emotions, even for a Finn.”

In a dramatic turn of events, health chiefs have recalled dozens of blood pressure pills that are deemed to pose a grave public health risk. The drugs in question — several different types of irbesartan and losartan – have been recalled from pharmacy shelves because they contain azido-tetrazole. The substance is considered by some health experts to be the world’s most explosive chemical and is linked to a heightened risk of cancer.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) – the UK’s drug oversight body – said the explosive substance is found in batches of the aforementioned blood pressure pills.
At this stage, the recall is merely precautionary and there was no proof it has caused any harm to patients, the MHRA said in a statement.
The health body urged Brits to not stop taking the drugs without consulting their GP because suddenly stopping can be pose health risks.
Some of the contaminated pills have been on the market for nearly two years, it was also revealed.
As the Mail Online reports, the latest development follows a series of drug recalls of sartan-type medicines, which may have been exposed to cancer-causing chemicals in factories in China and India.
Irbesartan and losartan are prescribed to millions of Britons with high blood pressure every year.
Commenting on the decision, Dr June Raine, MHRA Chief Executive, said: “Patient safety is our watchword. We’re recalling batches of certain sartan-containing products as a precautionary measure while we continue our investigation. It’s important that healthcare professionals check their stock to quarantine and return these batches.
“If you’ve been taking one of the affected products, speak with your doctor or pharmacist before stopping any treatment – they can address any concerns and can advise you on the best course of action.”
According to Public Health England, previous recalls of these types of products in 2018 and 2019 are part of an ongoing investigation.
The MHRA also said it is working with other medicines regulators on this issue.
There is currently no evidence any of the pills have exploded.
The MHRA said the move only applied to pharmacies and wholesalers stocking the 31 batches supplied by Bristol Laboratories Limited, Brown & Burk UK Limited and Teva UK Limited, some of which were first distributed in September 2019.
It is important to note that other blood pressure pills containing losartan and irbesartan are still available.
Dr Raine of MHRA also issued important advice if you’re taking the affected blood pressure pills or stocking them.
She said: “It’s important that healthcare professionals check their stock to quarantine and return these batches.
“If you’ve been taking one of the affected products, speak with your doctor or pharmacist before stopping any treatment – they can address any concerns and can advise you on the best course of action.”
The health risk posed by the substance azido-tetrazol was alerted to the world by Cambridge University chemical scientist Dr Ljiljana Fruk.
Dr Fruk described azido-tetrazole as the the world’s “most explosive chemical” in 2019.
Speaking on the The Naked Scientists radio show at the time, she said: “So the most explosive chemical was made in 2011 in the lab.
“[It] Never went out of the lab, it was made in a special chamber and it’s called azido-tetrazole.
“So that’s a molecule that has 14 nitrogens in its own structure, and because of these constrained nitrogen bonds it’s very explosive.”
Dominic Cummings was questioned about the language being used in autumn last year as the UK moved towards a second lockdown. Mr Cummings admitted the Prime Minister said he would rather see “bodies pile high” than put the country into a third lockdown as the UK shut down for the second time. SNP MP Carol Monaghan asked if Mr Cummings heard the remarks, to which he answered: “I heard that in the PM’s study.” Wednesday has been, arguably, the most damaging day of Mr Johnson’s tenure as Prime Minister as he faced a barrage of damning accusations alongside his ministers and other officials within his government. Here are seven of Mr Cummings’ best quotes.
Speaking about Matt Hancock, Mr Cummings said the health secretary’s performance fell “far, far disastrously below the standards which the country has a right to expect”.
Mr Cummings said: “I said repeatedly from February and March ‘If we don’t fire Mr Hancock and we don’t get the testing in someone else’s hands, we are going to kill people and it will be a catastrophe.
“The British system is not set up to deal with a Secretary of State who repeatedly lies in meetings.”
He added: “I think the Secretary of State for Health should have been fired for at least 15, 20 things, including lying to everybody on multiple occasions in meeting after meeting in the Cabinet room and publicly.
“Hancock wanted to be able to go on TV and say ‘look at means my 100k target’. I was criminal behaviour which caused serious harm.
“[The Prime Minister] came close to removing him in April, but fundamentally wouldn’t do it.”
Mr Cummings said: “It’s just completely crackers that someone like me should have been in there, just the same as it’s crackers that Boris Johnson was in there, and that the choice at the last election was Jeremy Corbyn.
“There are so many thousands of wonderful people in this country who could provide better leadership than either of those two.
“If you took anybody at random from the top one percent of people in this country who are competent, then they would have behaved differently to the Prime Minister.”
On the Prime Minister’s underestimation of the pandemic, he said: “In February, the Prime Minister regarded this as just a scare story, he described it as the new swine flu.
“He said ‘I’m going to get Chris Whitty to inject me with it live on television, to show the public there’s nothing to be frightened of.”
Mr Cummings told the committee: “Part of the building was arguing about whether we were going to bomb Iraq, part was arguing about whether we were going to quarantine or not, and the Prime Minister’s girlfriend was going crackers about something completely trivial.
“That morning, The Times had run a story about the PM, his girlfriend and their dog, and she was angry and we had to deal with that.
“[The Prime Minister’s] girlfriend is desperate to get rid of me and all my team.
“My resignation was definitely connected to the fact that the Prime Minister’s girlfriend was trying to change a whole bunch of different appointments in Number 10 and appoint her friends to particular jobs.
“In particular, she was trying to overturn the outcome of an official process about hiring a particular job in a way which was not only completely unethical but which was also clearly illegal.”
Speaking about care homes during the Covid crisis, Mr Cummings said: “Many people who should have been tested were not tested, and they went back to care homes and then infected people, and then it spread like wildfire inside the care homes.
“The Government rhetoric was ‘we put a shield around people in care homes’. Blah blah blah, it was complete nonsense.
“That was complete nonsense. Quite the opposite of putting a shield around them, we sent people with Covid back to care homes.”
The UK’s approach to borders
Mr Cummings said: “Fundamentally, there was no proper border policy because the Prime Minister never wanted a proper border policy.
“Repeatedly in meeting after meeting, I and others said all we have to do is download the Singapore or Taiwan documents in English and impose them here.
“At that point [after April] he was back to, ‘lockdown was all a terrible mistake, I should’ve been the mayor of Jaws, we should never have done lockdown one, the travel industry will all be destroyed if we bring in a serious border policy.”
Mr Cummings was damning when it comes to testing, saying Mr Hancock acted in an “incredibly stupid” way.
He added: “We had half the Government with me in Number 10 calling around frantically saying do not do what Hancock says, build the thing properly for the medium term.
“And we had Hancock calling them all saying down tools on this, do this, hold tests back so I can hit my target.
“In my opinion he [Hancock] should’ve been fired for that thing along, and that itself meant the whole of April was hugely disrupted by different parts of Whitehall fundamentally trying to operate in different ways completely because Hancock wanted to be able to go on TV and say ‘look at me and my 100k target’.”
Dominic Cummings’ trip to Barnard Castle
On his own breaking of lockdown rules, Mr Cummings said: “The whole thing was a complete disaster and the truth is – and then it undermined public confidence in the whole thing – the truth is, if I just went the Prime Minister said on a Monday ‘we can’t hold this line, we’re going to have to explain things’, if I just basically sent my family back out of London and said and said here’s the truth to the public, I think people would have understood the situation.
“It was a terrible misjudgment not to do that. So I take… the Prime Minister got that wrong, I got that wrong.
“That whole episode was definitely a major disaster for the Government and for the Covid policy.”
Labour’s former shadow chancellor John McDonnell has urged thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters in London to ignore the Israeli ceasefire in Gaza. Those among the Labour left have continued to stoke Palestinian tensions despite Israel declaring a ceasefire in the conflict on Thursday. Thousands of protesters took to the streets in central London earlier today in solidarity with the people of Palestine in the wake of the conflict.
Mr McDonnell, who is a prominent figure in the radical Labour left, called on activists to continue pushing the boycott, disinvest and sanction (BDS) campaign against Israel.
Speaking on a stage in Hyde Park to thousands of supporters, the Labour MP said: “Yes, a ceasefire has been negotiated and we welcome a ceasefire.
“But let’s be clear, there will be no ceasefire in our campaign to boycott, disinvest and sanction the Israeli apartheid state.
“The message is clear, we will not cease our campaign in solidarity until there is justice.
The crowds reacted with delight to the speech, as protesters set off fireworks and coloured smoke in response.
Demonstrators in London could be seen wearing costumes, masks and face paint, while others were draped in the Palestinian flag.
The protest, organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC), saw a large crowd block traffic and shutdowns roads near Victoria Embankment on Saturday afternoon as dozens of police officers watched on.
Protesters called for an “urgent” resolution to the ongoing conflict.
The left-wing Labour grouping, the Socialist Campaign Group Rally, released a statement following the ceasefire demanding the UK Government “imposes sanctions on Israel for its repeated violations of international law, place an embargo on arms sales and end trade with illegal settlements.”
It also called for “full support for the International Criminal Court’s opening of an investigation into alleged war crimes in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories.”
Former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, as well as John McDonnell, Richard Burgon, Diane Abbott and Ian Lavery all signed the statement.
At least 230 Palestinians were killed in Israeli airstrikes that raged for 11 days.
It is believed 12 have also been killed in Israel following rocket strikes by the terror group Hamas.
Hours after the ceasefire came into effects, the first convoys of humanitarian aid arrived in Gaza.
Palestinian officials warn that tens of millions of dollars will be needed to rebuild the region already hit hard by COVID-19.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Jose Mourinho were embroiled in a furious row at full-time following Manchester United’s 3-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.
The pair clashed verbally over an incident involving Heung-min Son and Scott McTominay. The United midfielder was adjudged to have fouled the South Korean in the build up to an Edinson Cavani goal, leaving the United boss furious.
McTominay’s hand had caught Son’s face leaving the latter on the floor for the duration of the goal.
Chris Kavanagh was informed of the incident by VAR and was told to check the pitch-side monitor. The goal was subsequently chalked off with PGMOL later stating: “It wasn’t part of McTominay’s natural running movement and was careless.”
Despite his side coming back into the contest and winning 3-1 thanks to goals from Fred, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood, Solskjaer was still absolutely furious at full-time.
“The game has gone. Game has absolutely gone,” said the United boss.
“If that’s a clear and obvious error, it’s an obvious error he had to look at it. It was a perfectly good goal.
“We shouldn’t be conned. I have to say, if my son stays down for three minutes and he needs his 10 mates to help him up, he won’t get any food.
Famed documentary maker Louis Theroux, 50, has reunited with Tiger King star Joe Exotic, in a new series to help people “understand who he really is” following the huge success of Netflix’s seven-parter Murder, Mayhem, Madness, which hit worldwide dominance in 2020. The journalist, who has previously interviewed the flamboyant proprietor in 2011 while visiting his big cat wildlife park three times in order to learn more about the breeding industry, recalled the significant tension while filming the end of the doc, which saw the zookeeper storm out mid interview after claiming Theroux had an “agenda” against him.
“I knew that he was p****d off,” the broadcaster looked back at his time chatting with Exotic in a recent interview.
“He thought that I had an animal rights agenda. I also knew that I needed an ending for the documentary and needed to be seen to be holding him to account in some way, or at least posing some fairly pointed questions.”
But before he could get that far, Exotic lost his temper and refused to finish the interview.
“He ripped off his microphone and said, ‘F*** you. F*** Carole Baskin. F*** Tippi Hedren. F*** PETA. Yes, my animals are happy. Yes, I’m going to go on breeding.’ He had a tantrum,” Theroux recalled.

“Any time someone rips their mic off and tells you to f*** yourself… I won’t say it’s never happened before, but it’s not something you typically forget!”
The strop he remembered quite clearly, but he had to be reminded of how the aftermath played out and how he managed to get Exotic back on side by watching old tapes of the footage from 2011.
Theroux continued: “I said, ‘Joe, I’m just asking these questions. I don’t mean to upset you. Can we just keep talking?'”
The big cat breeder’s anger subsided as he decided to return to the set and finish the final scenes.
“I said, ‘Are we buds again?’ And he goes on, ‘I guess.’ And I said, ‘Can I have a hug?’, and went over and I hugged him,” the journalist went on to explain.
“What struck me was the fact that I seemed to need some emotional reassurance that he was OK. I felt protective of him, and I didn’t like the fact that I’d upset him.”
Although he described the feeling as “odd”, Theroux suggested that Exotic’s confidence almost protected his insecurities, but that some viewers saw through the smoke and mirrors.
It was in fact his likeable and infectious characteristics that captured the hearts of fans across the world, despite the blurred lines surrounding his alleged revenge plots towards rival sanctuary owners; a story that is told in great depth in Netflix’s investigation into the dark underworld of breeding exotic animals which propelled Exotic into the spotlight.

Theroux’s America’s Most Dangerous Pets is still available to watch on iPlayer and now a decade later, he has revisited the Tiger King carnival for a new, feature-length documentary, Shooting Joe Exotic.
And while this documentary is solely focused on the eccentric exotic zookeeper, he is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence on a “murder-for-hire” charge of his rival Carole Baskin.
Instead, the film draws on new interviews with those around him, as well as looking back at the unused footage from the 2011 trip.
But it does deal with the deadly plot, which Theroux admitted “makes virtually no reference to Tiger King, the series”.
“It’s something like a programme I might have made if Tiger King hadn’t existed,” he quipped toRadio Times.
But it also looks into the consequences of fame that came from the Tiger King phenomenom and those involved in it.
It has been rumoured that several dramatisations of Exotic’s story are in the pipeline, something the journalist confessed he would “love” to be apart of to make “television history”.
Theroux’s full interview is available to read now in Radio Times.
Former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has reignited the argument over whether lightweight great Khabib Nurmagomedov should be considered the greatest UFC fighter of all time, failing to resist having a dig at the Dagestani.
Ever since the Russian lightweight king announced his retirement after stopping Justin Gaethje at UFC 259 in October, Jones has appeared offended by claims that the 29-0 Russian stands above him and the likes of Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva as the greatest mixed martial artist to step foot in the octagon.
Though the furor had died down in recent weeks, with Jones instead involved in a tit-for-tat with fans of recently-defeated rival Israel Adesanya, UFC president Dana White’s long overdue acceptance of Khabib’s decision before the weekend saw it rise to the surface once more.
Taking to his millions of followers on Instagram Instagram, Jones posted a version of a famous meme with a Khabib-twist, which shows the Russian receiving a gold medal and popping champagne to celebrate his four title defences.
The last shot showed the grappler on a podium in last place, behind the likes of the aforementioned trio, Demetrious Johnson, Jose Aldo, and Jones’ future heavyweight foe Stipe Miocic in this respect.
“Nothing wrong with going out on top. Enjoy retirement, champ,” read Jones’ bitter caption.
One Twitter user quipped that Jones was “the definition of fragile male ego”. Back in Russia, meanwhile, Khabib’s EFC 34 night provided a pair of explosive KOs.
Valeriy Pak took barely 20 seconds to destroy Artur Arutyunyan, having first knocked him off balance.
Pak then forced a stoppage with a barrage of punches that preceded a series of left and right hooks.
In the co-main event, Jora Ayvazyan demonstrated a ground-and-pound game that Nurmagomedov would be proud, earning a technical knockout victory over Andrey Odinstov. Also on rt.com‘Of course I’ll talk to GSP & Khabib!’ Beterbiev teases crossover to MMA before world title bout in Moscow (VIDEO)
Call of Duty Warzone Season 2 could be ending with more than just the completion of the Battle Pass and the nerfing of some weapons. Dataminers believe they have found evidence that Warzone will be unlocking a secret new mode that will lead to the Verdansk map being bombed under a hail of Nuclear weapons.
Charlieintel shared the report today, revealing that audio files have been found that include references to Verdansk being overrun by Zombies.
The new Plague Zones would likely be populated by Undead creatures and could include players having to exfil before being overrun.
As always, these new reports need to be taken with a pinch of salt as there has been no word from Activision on how they are planning to end the current season.
But there have been rumours swirling for months that Verdansk would be removed as a map via a nuclear detonation.
This seemed to be on the cards in the leadup to the release of Black Ops Cold War, with new nuclear weapons being found and bunkers offering up secret Easter eggs.
But nothing solid emerged with the launch of the new Call of Duty game and Verdansk remained the only game in town alongside Rebirth.
However, while gamers are probably ready to move onto a new map that fits better with Black Ops Cold War’s setting, something this big probably wouldn’t happen until the end of Season 2.
A recent report from VGC backed this idea, confirming that the end of Season 2, likely set for April, would see Verdansk replaced.
The new Call of Duty Warzone map would fit more closely with Cold War and would be set in the Ural Mountains.
Using the popular Zombies mode to help destroy Verdansk might seem like a strange crossover, but it’s a great way of using existing content to create a new event for everyone to enjoy.
Zombies can already be found on the Warzone map, although heavily centralised to just one location.
Gamers who want to find them need to activate a machine on the shipwreck, before the Zombies start emerging in the broken hull.
Killing a number of them provides teams with keycards that unlock lucrative loot chests.
But gamers usually have to travel some way before they can actually spend whatever they found, with no buy station in the immediate area.
