Arūnas Brasas on World of racingMotorsport news editorSome time ago
What a year it has been. At first it looked so normal and when all F-1 teams went to Melbourne, everything have stopped. And then it was a long break, a really long break. Nobody knew how long it will last and when it will end. But after few month of waiting we had a first race. What a season it was. Full of everything. Yes, as always, for some it was another boring season, another year marked of Mercedes’ domination. But it was a different season, different year. The beginning was black. Black cars, black teashirts, black topics... who knew, that in a F-1 world so many people will be talking about racism, equality, protests, police, politics and so on. It was not just a corona virus. It was much more. A bit of everything. From news about first race in Austria to discussions about police’s actions in USA. There was a time when most of us did not knew if we will see a race this year. And after few moth we were arguing about who should kneel before the start of the race and who should not, who is right and who is wrong in all that situation, how F-1 should react, what FIA should do with a man wearing a black teashirt? Not everyone, but most of them found they place, found a place to put their message. Still, who knew... there was a time when we were just talking about racing. And this year we showed that we care. Some of us were racists, some of us just were those people who are always full of hate. But we were talking and talking not just about racing, but about other people too. And that was a good thing. Lewis Hamilton used this sport as a global platform to send a message that we should not forget about others. What a year it has been. Full of fights, wins and losses. Some of us lost a friend, a family member. Some of us lost maybe just an oppurtunity or a chanse to prove something. F-1 proved that it can put a show when a world is fighting with a virus. But it was not a season without losses. F-1 lost a good old friend, a family, a Williams family. The Williams is dead, long live the new Williams. Yes, it was a year of domination, a domination of Silver arrows painted in black. But again, we saw a bit of everything. From another great lap of Lewis Hamilton to tears of joy from Pierre Gasly and Sergio Perez after winning their first race in F-1. Screaming and shouting, celebrating and crying, a bit of everything. Records were broken and still this is not the end. Cars were teared apart, but people survived. And this is not the end. Just another year in F-1 world. We said goodbye to people who left this sport, from team principals to racers with burned hands. And at the same time we were hearing the announcments about racers who will step into the F-1 world. There was a time when we were talking about black and white, about who is right and who is wrong, what you should say on a social media, what you should post, what type of a story you should or should not share on an Instagram. Time went by, things have happened, a season have come to an end, but we still are talking about posts on an Instagram, just changed the topic - from Black Lives Matter to “How not to touch a girl in your car”.

What makes a great product manager? Google suggests dozens of articles with a variety of characteristics and skills highlighted. As it is a frequent question on every Product Management interview, and you usually want to give MECE answers on an interview, I put my top-qualities list in a matrix, based on a KANO model: https://link.medium.com/zVJiK5nFQ6
