Mercedes switch Hamilton engine after qualifying troubles

Posted on Apr 17, 2016

In the round-up: Mercedes has confirmed that they will replace the power unit in Lewis Hamilton?s car following the issues that left him unable to set a time in yesterday?s qualifying session. Links Your daily digest of F1 news, views, features and more from hundreds of sites across the web: Lewis Hamilton forced onto second engine of F1 2016 at Chinese GP (Autosport) “Mercedes confirmed the power unit would be changed in order to ‘give us time to properly analyse the issue back at the factory and then determine which components from PU one can be re-used at future events’.” Ferrari ‘missed an open goal’ in Chinese Grand Prix qualifying (Sky) “‘Ferrari have missed an open goal, haven’t they?,’ Brundle said, as Raikkonen and Vettel had to settle for third and fourth. ‘Hamilton retired with a technical issue and they’re not even on the front row of the grid.'” Hamilton’s personal development ‘mind blowing’ – Wolff (Motorsport.com) “The development I’ve seen in him as a personality is mind blowing, over the last three years he’s been with the team. He’s won two championships and found himself, I think, as a person.” Jenson Button troubled by ‘dangerous’ pit incident in qualifying (Autosport) “For me that was the most dangerous part of the session.” Fernando Alonso thinks his radio gets singled out (Eurosport) “But it seems always it’s quite attractive. I’ve heard many, many things they don’t put live. So it’s good to have that respect from FOM…” Formula One: Who’s in charge of the runaway train? (ESPN) “I sometimes wish Max Mosley were back in charge. I’d even go so far as to occasionally suggest we would be better offer with Jean-Marie Balestre holding the presidential reins in Paris. That’s how bad things have become.” Declining audiences and a complete lack of interest – How much longer can the Chinese Grand Prix go on? (Telegraph) “But if you walk around the city you would not have too much of an idea that this sport is in town. In Thursday?s Shanghai Daily, the local newspaper, the day which kicks off the whole weekend with driver press conferences, there was not a line on F1.” Rising Ferrari offer growing threat to Mercedes? relentless F1 hegemony (Guardian) “That even Raikkonen is fractionally more animated this season is further evidence that Ferrari have moved forward. But, like last year, they still look a team more likely to take victories off Mercedes than win the title themselves. “ Got a tip for a link to feature in the next F1 Fanatic round-up? Send it in here: On this day in F1 Happy birthday to Romain Grosjean who is 30 today! On this day five years ago Lewis Hamilton scored a memorable victory for McLaren in the Chinese Grand Prix, passing Sebastian Vettel to win while Mark Webber climbed from 18th to third place.

Ricciardo surprised by ?awesome? front row start | 2016 Chinese Grand Prix

Posted on Apr 16, 2016

Daniel Ricciardo believes starting second on the grid is an ?awesome? and unexpected result for Red Bull Racing after pipping both Ferraris to the front row. After Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel had appeared to have threatening pace all weekend, Ricciardo surprised many by snatching second on the grid from the clutches of the Ferrari drivers at the end of Q3 ? not least of all himself. ?Second?s pretty awesome! We didn?t expect this,? said Ricciardo in the post-qualifying press conference. ?It didn?t seem like we were really going to be in the fight with the front few rows today.? The Red Bull driver believes that it was the team?s management of the volatile supersoft tyre around the Shanghai Circuit that was the key to the team?s best qualifying result since Singapore last year. ?I didn?t think we started in the best position in Q1, just with the balance,? Ricciardo explained. ?In Q3, we basically found a bit more speed. The supersoft is a pretty tricky tyre to manage, to get the one lap out of it. It?s not exactly easy ? it gets chewed up quite a bit as the lap goes on. ?I think just understanding that as the session went on and between me understanding a bit more what to do on track and the engineer making a few adjustments with pressures and the front wing, I think we got a good package at the end.? directly to the...

Posted on Apr 16, 2016

Photo Credit: Denis Vrublevski, Shutterstock Since our last finance round-up there?s been the annual Budget plus the start of the new tax year. For many it seems the cost of living has gone up considerably. A few pence on the price of stamps, an increase in petrol and diesel costs, higher council tax bills ? before we know it our weekly or monthly household budgets have taken quite a pounding. To help us all get back on track here?s some suggestions on saving money and making a few extra pounds. For some people cutting down the weekly grocery bill is one of the easiest ways to save money. However what do you do if you have given up all costly treats but still need to trim your food bill? Paula from Mummy vs Work has been investigating the benefits of ordering meat online in bulk.  Have you got a freezer but find you don?t utilise it enough? Instead of filling of it with ice cream (however yummy!) and ice cubes you could be saving money by using it to store food bargains. Helen at Mummy to the Max has shared her top foods which you can freeze which often you will find in the reduced section in supermarkets. Even if you cut out all excess spending and try to trim your grocery bills down to the bare minimum you can find you are still wasting money. Without doing anything your home could be costing you money so Rebecca from All about U has been sharing her tips on how to save money from making your property more energy efficient. Emma at Emma and 3 Saves has also been looking at how to make your home more energy efficient through the use of thermal imagery. If you?re still feeling cold in your home even though the heating is on it could be time to find out where you are losing heat before you spend money on turning the thermostat up. As we all know babies are expensive and continue to be for the rest of their lives! One trap every new mum or mum-to-be falls into is buying baby things which we don?t need. Lauren from Belle du Brighton has given us the low down on deciding what is necessary and how to grab a few baby essentials bargains.  Finally, Cass from The Diary Of A Frugal Family has been giving some tips on how to make a bit of money. A good declutter of the house can be good for the soul and also for the purse. If you find you have a selection of unwanted items such as furniture, clothing or other items then Cass has found selling them on Facebook is a great free and quick way to get rid but pocket some cash at the same time.  Have you found things have got more expensive in the last month? What ways do you use to save...
