This Month's Point of Interest


This month's Point of Interest comes from one of this month's free lesson, the Upper-Intermediate Instant Lesson, 'Sorry Red Bull'.

A: What Do You Think?
Discuss these statements in pairs or small groups. Which do you agree with and which do you disagree with?
- As a team member, you should always follow the instructions of your coach or team captain. If you have been clearly told to do something, you do it, you don't follow your own ideas.
- Whilst a team is committed to a common aim of winning, individual team members should be encouraged to aim to achieve their own personal goals.
- If you are in a sports team, you should be committed to your team. You are not playing for yourself, but for your team. Anyone who is not committed to this ideal should not be part of the team.
- Professional sport and amateur sport are very different in their aims, and whilst teams in professional sport always have their eye on the winner's trophy and rewards, amateur sports teams play for enjoyment. Winning is not the most important thing.

Vettel apologizes to Red Bull staff
Thu, Mar 28, LONDON (Reuters) - Formula One world champion Sebastian Vettel has apologized in person to Red Bull staff for ignoring team orders in a controversial Malaysian Grand Prix last weekend.
The team said the 25-year-old German had also spoken to aggrieved team mate Mark Webber, who had victory snatched away in the closing laps, after the race at Sepang and the pair had shaken hands.
"He's said he can't turn back the clock but he's accepted what he did was wrong," team principal Christian Horner said of Vettel, who visited the Milton Keynes factory on Tuesday to address employees.
"He's apologized to the team and to every single member of staff for his actions, because he recognizes the team is vitally important and being part of the team is a crucial aspect to being able to challenge for those championships."
Vettel had also apologized to Webber in a news conference after Sunday's race, saying he had made a mistake. (Continued.../)
