Continuing to watch. I also do not agree that there is any sense of panic shown by the 3 briefing personnel, actually the opposite. They answered most of the questions in a calm and confident...

Live Press Briefing

My take on the press briefing taking place live (09.40 GMT) is that the official verbal statement seems honest, open and clear. He has dispelled the "engine data" rumours as not true, also that the...
