You want to know just how crazy it can get in the wild and wacky world of Formula One? Well, if you have team bosses making some pretty outrageous bets between themselves, then that’s a pretty darn good indication.

Earlier this year, Lotus head Tony Fernandes and Virgin czar Sir Richard Branson agreed on a challenge where the boss of the losing team would have to dress up - and serve – as a female flight attendant on the winning team’s airline.

As you may know, Sir Branson owns Virgin Airways and Fernandes owns Air Asia, making this bet between the two all the more hilarious. The latter event went as far as having a rendering done of Sir Branson dressed up in the full Air Asia female FA regalia. Consider the gauntlet being thrown, Sir Branson.

And seeing as both teams have yet to score a single point this season, the final three races of the 2010 Formula One season will not only be about a Ferrari-Red Bull-McLaren smackdown to the championship, but also a fight to the finish line between Lotus and Virgin for that important point to determine which boss would have to dress up and serve on the other’s airline.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

haha. Richard Branson has never been a killed joy after all! I like his sportiness. However, if that face would be flight attendant I’d rather not to use an airplane for transpo!
