2016 mid-season driver rankings part two: 12-6 | Driver rankings

Posted on 6:57 pm

Part two of F1 Fanatic?s mid-season driver rankings features seven drivers who?ve impressed in more ways than one ? but not enough to gain a place in the top five. 12. Jenson Button Button ran second in Austria Jenson Button Beat team mate in qualifying 3/12 Beat team mate in race 3/6 Races finished 9/12 Laps spent ahead of team mate 239/544 Points 17 Button has been a more regular visitor to the points than his fellow world champion team mate but Fernando Alonso has managed to drag the McLaren further up the top ten when he been in the points. This is partly down to the car?s patchy reliability letting its drivers down: Button was in good shape early on in Bahrain before suffering a power unit problem and another ended his race in Canada. A curious strategy choice by the team in Australia squandered a potentially very good points scoring opportunity. When the car has held together Button has produced some excellent drives, Austria being by far the best as he claimed sixth place having lined up an improbable third on the grid. But on other occasions Alonso has shown him the way, notably in Russia. Over to you Has shown he is still a safe pair of hands, but needs to be a match to [email protected] What?s your verdict on Jenson Button?s 2016 season so far? Which drivers do you feel he performed better or worse than? Have your say in the comments. 11. Romain Grosjean After sixth in Australia, Grosjean went one better in Bahrain Romain Grosjean Beat team mate in qualifying 8/12 Beat team mate in race 3/8 Races finished 10/12 Laps spent ahead of team mate 318/604 Points 28 Haas and Grosjean peaked early with top six finishes in the first two races of the year. At the time it seemed they had sussed F1?s fickle Pirelli tyres beautifully: Grosjean cannily one-stopped thanks to his team mate?s crash in Austria, then employed an aggressive three-stop to take big points in Bahrain. A first-lap error in China which damaged his car marked the beginning of a downturn and the team haven?t been able to hit those highs since, which is only partly to do with other teams getting their act together and developing more quickly since the opening rounds. Grosjean?s radio frustrations have revealed his bemusement about how the team appears to have lost its way with tyre performance, and he?s had confidence-sapping brake and front wing problems too. However Grosjean?s flair for qualifying has still been apparent ? he almost eliminated in Lewis Hamilton during Q2 in Hungary. And he?s responsible for all four of Haas?s points finishes so far.

5 BUYERS AND THEIR FAVORITE BRAND FOR AUTUMN 2016

Posted on 12:57 pm

Summer days are faded into dark grey clouds and light mornings are beginning to be replaced by dark gloomy ones. Yes Autumn 2016 is on its way. But, it?s not all doom and gloom as this gives us the opportunity to ditch those flip flops and short and start wearing knitwear and jackets. Rather than dreading the new season, let us celebrate it. So we have sort the advice and guidance of some of the best qualified and most respected figures in the industry, unfortunately, they weren?t available, ONLY JOKING! Lets face it these guys are so qualified at buying the right product they are employed to do it for a living ! So these figures are going to tell us what brands they are most excited about for the forthcoming season and why you should part with your hard earned cash to invest in them. ?Celebrating 20 years in the game I think Fraser and Jimmy through everything at this collection and the show. Titled ? Parallelogram ? the show erupted with piercing sounds of a guitar tuning and it was pulsating psych-rock all the way down from there. The palette was like a knackered old log cabin at dusk; charcoals, deep greens, tans, blacks and navy blocks with strings of purple and dusky pinks shining through. Denim was ripped, shredded and distressed and the trousers wide. The fringed donkey jackets and wedged clogs a nod to better times of yesteryear whilst the timeless Biker Jackets and Chelsea Boots dragged you back to present day. Stand out piece for me was the tan shearling jacket with contrast leather pockets and trim. Fedoras and Bucket Hats featured throughout with playful scarves wrapped around the models necks and the textured knits gave life to tonal looks. With so many stores seeking brands from the far east at the moment YMC gave them no reason to look further than Hanbury Street. I cant wait to get this collection in the shop and to write about the many intricacies of the collection. You Must Create? Yes you must.? Thom Schdel, the Idel Man ?This bomber by Helmut Lang has to be the piece of the season ? subtle camouflage print in a jacquard fabric? luxe cool at its best.? Claire Miles, Head of Bluebird. ?OAMC is a great addition to our stable of new and emerging contemporary brands. There is a real fusion of form and function; the clean silhouette references performance sportswear and the detailing has a purpose rather than as purely decoration. Whilst the silhouette is clean and functional founders Luke Meier and Arnaud Faeh have really elevated this refreshing take on modern menswear.?Damien Paul, Head of Menswear, MATCHESFASHION.COM ?Howlin? by Morrison are based in Belgium, but are in fact experts of British and Irish knitwear, sourcing the finest fabrics from small, independent weavers and distributing it to selected retailers from their Antwerp base. We are lucky enough to be part of that chosen few, and have managed to get a hold of some quality knitwear and accessories, just in time for the start of Autumn 2016.?Pete Parry, Steranko ?Following on from the brand relaunch of Perry Ellis last season, I am really excited to see the Americana brand develop into this new season for AW16. I particularly love the styling of this outfit. Layering...

Self-Love Stew (VEGAN)

Posted on 12:57 am

   I cooked for myself last night. This is pretty good news, considering how blue I have been the last few days? Black dog came home, and cooking is the self-love I need but often the first thing it takes in its jaws. So I hereby christen this Self-Love Stew. I?ll reformat it into a proper recipe later on, with costings, but I just wanted to get it up and out there in case someone else needs it today as much as I needed it yesterday. Take 2 cloves of garlic and an onion. Chop them and fry in a little oil on a low heat to soften. Stir, stir, slow and cathartic. Add a finely chopped or grated carrot (or parsnip, or spud, or sweet potato ? any root will do) and stir some more. Add a tsp of paprika, and stir in. The stirring is key. It is soothing. It is mindless, not mindful. Sod mindful. My mind is full enough. It is a minefield. Tonight I want to stir some stuff and stare at my hands or into nothing. Add chunks of tofu if you?re veggie/vegan, fish if you aren?t. Add a can of beans. Baked or kidney or butter or chickpeas or cannelini or whatever. Add some beans. For goodness. For laziness. For filling comfort. For making it stretch an extra meal you won?t have to cook. Pour over a tin of tomatoes. The cheaper the better, Basics ones are brilliantly sloppy and liquid and excellent for soups and stews. Shred some kale in your hands. Rip it the heck up with all the stress and physicality you can muster. Go on. Tear it to shreds. Drop it in. Stir it through, breathe, stir, breathe. Bring to the boil, like your fury, heat it up and watch it roar? ?reduce it to a simmer. Douse in lemon juice to brighten, salt and pepper to amplify. Spoon it into a bowl. Add chopped nuts or seeds of your choice. Sit in your favourite spot. Hug that bowl to yourself. Enjoy every mouthful. Shoulders down. You did this. You made this for yourself out of love. You are nourishing yourself. You are smart. You are kind. You are important. You can wash up tomorrow. #selflove #vegan #veganonabootstrap #cookingonabootstrap #loveyourself #happymonday #15minutemeals #vegandinner #blackdog #selfcare #lowspoons #spoonie #spoons more computer news more gadgets on the...

2016 Hungarian Grand Prix track preview | 2016 Hungarian Grand Prix

Posted on 12:57 am

This weekend?s Hungarian Grand Prix marks the 30th anniversary of a race which was a radical addition to the schedule in 1986. F3 raced on the resurfaced track earlier this yearIn many ways the Hungaroring was the template for what was to follow as Bernie Ecclestone transported F1 to a series of venues with little in the way of a tradition of motor racing. However, unlike many of its successors, the Hungarian Grand Prix has endured, and its current contract will keep it on the schedule until at least its 40th anniversary. The track layout has changed little from the configuration originally devised by Istvan Papp. The largest revision came in 2003 when the start/finish straight was extended and two later corners revised in an unsuccessful bid to shake off its reputation as an overtaking-free zone. However the track has provided some of the more memorable races of the ?Pirelli era?. And it remains to be seen what effort the resurfacing of the track during the off-season may have on this year?s Hungarian Grand Prix: and whether more track records will tumble this weekend. A lap of the Hungaroring This is the latest (and not the last) round of the championship to take place on a resurfaced course. Formula Three, Formula V8 3.5 and other championships have already sampled the new course and the F1 drivers can look forward to a smoother ride around the 4.381-kilometre venue. In Austria the new track surface led to considerably higher temperatures during practice and qualifying. If the same phenomenon is repeated this weekend Pirelli?s rubber could be in for some serious punishment at what is often one of the hottest races of the season. The longest straight on the circuit measures less than a kilometre and leads to the sharp turn one hairpin which typically offers the best opportunity for overtaking. Battles for position often continue on the subsequent run to turn two. The track slopes downhill here, inducing understeer, and right-hander which follows immediately after is taken flat-out in qualifying. The drivers then have a chance to build up speed again before tackling the fast turn four, the approach to which is obscured by the brow of the hill. The drivers are now in a rapid sequence of corners beginning with a slow and long right-hander. This feeds into a chicane which Esteban Gutierrez describes as ?very slow, but interesting because you can use all the kerb on the apex and exit?. Go ad-free for just £1 per month >> Find out more and sign up From here on tyre management becomes a particular concern on a flying lap, though it remains to be seen how the resurfacing will affect this. ?You come out of that corner with the tyres overheated and approaching the next sequence of corners,? explain Gutierrez. Corner exits and entries merge into each other ?It becomes very challenging because you need to keep the temperature on the tyres low and you?re trying to make the corners in the best way, sometimes sliding the car, pushing on the limit.? From turn eight the entrance to each of the following three corners is dictated by how well the driver tackles the preceding bend. This is not only challenging for the drivers, but also places a high demand on the...

The Walking Dead Season 7: 9 Reasons Glenn Must Be Killed By Negan

Posted on 6:57 pm

Batter up… The Walking Dead is creeping closer, with some enticing details and new hints being dropped all the time. Nerves were well and truly shredded at the end of Season 6, and while the cliffhanger appears to have backfired massively given the fan reaction to the finale, it does ensure a face-melting start to the next run. But who’s it going to be? Who will ‘take it like a champ’ and suffer at the merciless hands of Negan? There are a great deal of options, but only one nailed on choice: Glenn. It would be a significant move for the show to eliminate one of its finest characters, but it may be necessary in order to justify the hype since the POV execution cut to black. And that’s not the only reason Glenn should be the man to meet Lucille in the Season 7 premiere… This Internet address to the site...

Star Trek 4: Anton Yelchin’s Role WON’T Be Recast

Posted on 12:57 pm

croogles.com In the wake of the announcement of Star Trek 4 and the mind-bending inclusion of Chris Hemsworth, the question of replacing Anton Yelchin as Chekov was always going to come up. The actor was tragically killed as the film entered the busiest pre-release marketing period for Star Trek Beyond, and the film is dedicated to him, quite rightly. Chekov is said to have an expanded role in Beyond, having been mostly relegated to comic relief in Into Darkness, but it seems JJ Abrams will resist bringing in another actor to replace Yelchin. The producer said as much to Postmedia Network: ?I would say there?s no replacing him. There?s no recasting. I can?t possibly imagine that, and I think Anton deserves better?. So what do they do with the character? Should we expect some sort of poetic farewell as Paul Walker received in Fast & Furious after his death? That remains unclear, but it seems Abrams has some sort of plan, as he told the Toronto Sun: ?I have thought about it, we?re working on it, and it?s too early to talk about it?. It’s only right to leave Chekov out in a show of respect to Yelchin – particularly if the Kelvin Timeline is going to be closing out with this fourth movie anyway (as it should). Given the presence of Hemsworth, that isn’t quite as far fetched as it may seem, particularly as the synopsis confirms his role is far more than just a cameo/flashback: ?Chris Pine?s Captain Kirk will cross paths with a man he never had a chance to meet, but whose legacy has haunted him since the day he was born: his father?. Are you looking forward to Star Trek 4? Share your reactions below in the comments thread. Additional News more breaking...
