Mostly illogical headlines but as an early version of click bait, used to pump up the mag’s circulation!
Rather like this from Autoweek: "Could Roger Penske be eyeing Mercedes F1 team?"

Seems an opportune moment to mention Betteridge's Law of Headlines:

In short: the answer to a headline which ends in a question mark is almost always "no"

I presume the piece about the chequered flag being reinstated as the official end of the race means that whatever the light panel shows, drivers keep racing until they see a human being waving a flag! Can’t remember TV coverage showing the light panel at any GP, as the camera shot is usually from the other direction.....

Ooh, you cynic you.

Still, in related news it now means we can have more races finish early when some minor "celebrity" decides to wave the flag one lap early. Yay!
