Richard Branson is a bit of a legend!

At the beginning of the F1 season, Branson had a bet with Tony Fernandes.

Whichever team lost in the F1; the loser would serve as a stewardess on the winner's airline.

Well - The season is over and Virgin finished behind the Lotus team. Branson now has to don a stewardess uniform and serve for a flight on Air Asia!

Quote from Tony Fernandes

"There has been a fantastic spirit of competition between us and Virgin Racing all season and one of the first people to come and congratulate us on the pitwall was Richard. We have had this great bet running all season and now it's time for Richard to start preparing himself for some hard work and the likely pain of a pair of high heels! We agreed last night that we will run an online charity auction for the seats on our Kuala Lumpur / London route to raise money for a charity of Richard's choice and give fans of both teams the chance to be on the flight. The date of the flight will be announced very soon and the aim is to raise as much money as we can for a good cause so the discomfort Richard will go through is worth as much as it possibly can be!"

Looks like it could be a good laugh!
