Азербайджанская рулетка: дайджест фееричной гонки Формулы-1 в Баку

- Первым инцидентом на Гран При Азербайджана стал разворот Карлоса Сайнса, который буквально шарахнулся в сторону от возвращавшегося на трассу после экскурсии в зону безопасности Даниила Квята. Сразу же после старта, как и предсказывалось, в Ferrari постарались воспользоваться преимуществом старта с чистой стороны трассы. Кими Райкконен даже успел поравняться и пройти чуть вперед Валттери Боттаса, но на углу улицы Пушкина финские парни не поделили дорогу: гонщик Мерседеса, оказавшийся внутри, подпрыгнул на бордюре и буквально прилетел в машину соперника

Why will there be no Glastonbury in 2018, will the festival return the following year and is it being moved from Worthy Farm?

- GLASTONBURY is Britain’s biggest music festival but, if you’re already looking ahead to next year, we’re afraid you’ll have to put those plans on hold. Why will there be no Glastonbury 2018? As you probably already know, Glastonbury takes place on Worthy Farm – which is a working dairy farm in Pilton, Somerset. Every six years, the festival is put on hold because of a ‘fallow year’ to prevent excessive damage to the site

    Si Okja n’avait pas été l’un des meilleurs films de l’édition 2017 du festival de Cannes, on n’en serait sans doute pas là. Du côté du public à supplier que le film sorte en salle. Du côté des professionnels à rappeler vertement qu’un film ne peut pas sortir en salle et en streaming en même temps. Du moins en France. Et jusqu’à présent
