Here's a funny intermezzo. Over at the Chinese Formula One Grand Prix in Shanghai on Sunday, a live reporter decided to do an interview of a random person on the track. That person happened to be AMD CEO Lisa Su. It's a pretty awkward interview, as Sky Sports reporter Martin Brundle has no idea who he's interviewing, and doesn't realize AMD is a sponsor of the Ferrari team.
"Excuse me ma'am, do you speak English?" Brundle asked. However, he was unwittingly talking to Lisa Su, president and CEO of AMD, who speaks excellent English, thanks in part to gaining a masters and doctorate degrees in electrical engineering from MIT and 46 years living in the US.
You know, AMD. One of the sport's top sponsors.
"Yes, I do. I'm with AMD so we're sponsoring the Ferrari car," she responded. "Er, OK, yes," Brundle stuttered, before cutting back to the studio.
Not really newsworthy, but pretty funny to those in the tech world.
