I used to think Lace Stroll didn't deserve his seat in F1.

Indeed, I think the only thing that these statistics definitely prove is that there can't be a conspiracy about faking of deaths.

Covid-19 is responsible directly or indirectly for a massive spike in the death rate this year. That cannot be disputed by any tin foil hat wearer, surely?
