JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia – After a missile strike on an oil refinery struck 6 miles from the Jeddah Grand Prix circuit on Friday morning, Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali spoke to media while the practice session was delayed. “Missile strikes and humanitarian crisis won’t stop us from cashing those hosting checks!” he yelled, “It’s not F1’s oil refinery and we’re not the ones doing mass executions, but it is our duty to entertain the people of these countries to get their minds off the not-so-fun parts of their lives.”

“We’ll see you all in Russia this summer!”
