When you want to buy shares in a company and you don’t want to sound like a doofus, you use the ticker symbol that it’s listed under.

After tires popped at Spa, Formula One and Pirelli instituted limits on tire pressures. The minimum allowed on any car at Monza was 19.5 psi. To enforce this, an FIA delegate measured left rear tire pressures on the four front cars on the grid and found that both Mercedes’ tires were below the minimum pressure.
Why, Kimi, why? You started in second! Second! Place! The hopes and dreams of Tifosi everywhere for a win at their home Italian Grand Prix now rest solely with Sebastian Vettel and/or the potential for mechanical gremlins in Hamilton’s new power unit. Why did you stall? Why? Whyyyyy?! »
Racing takes years to master. Only the best and most skilled drivers can advance to the highest levels of motorsport. The track isn’t a place for fools.
