Podium finish for Raj Bharath at Formula Masters China

Jul 7 2013, 7:17am CDT | by

Ordos (China), July 7 (IANS) After qualifying third, India's Raj Bharath rounded off his race weekend with a podium finish in race one while engine issues in race two did not allow him to finish better than sixth in the third round of Formula Masters China here Sunday.

Ordos (China), July 7 — After qualifying third, India's Raj Bharath rounded off his race weekend with a podium finish in race one while engine issues in race two did not allow him to finish better than sixth in the third round of Formula Masters China here Sunday.

Driving for Meco Motorsport, the Bangalore lad had posted his maiden win of the season on the last outing at Shanghai International circuit. At Ordos though, mechanical issues which first surfaced in qualifying, prevented him from showing his pace, but the 19-year old managed to hold on through the opening race of the weekend to finish third.

"The car seemed to lack acceleration out of corner exits, so I was losing speed on the straights and couldn't catch up to my rivals ahead," said Raj.

It was worse in race two and Raj found it difficult to maintain his position, having started third. So despite a bout of defensive driving, he could only cross the line in sixth.

"It was much harder in the second race as drivers behind me were quicker, as our issues had become more pronounced.

"I did the best I could but there was no way of holding them back when you're lacking a lot of speed on the straights," said Raj.

Race three of the weekend was cancelled due to some safety issues on the circuit which turned out be a blessing in disguise as it limited the amount of points that could have been further lost in the championship standings.

The cancelled race will be held at the championship's next outing scheduled at Inje Circuit in Korea Aug 2-4.

Dana White: Hector Lombard vs. Tyron Woodley 'is the UFC fight we want to do'

Lombard is ready to go, all UFC needs is the green light from Woodley. Matt Brown isn't the only one who's uninterested in engaging in fisticuffs with Tyron Woodley, as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White, isn't so keen on that match up, either.

Six reasons why women should fake a pregnancy

Aug 28 2014 6:11am CDT | Source: the guardian

A panda in China has duped its keepers into giving it more food by appearing to be pregnant. You too can reap the benefits of a faked foetusThere we were thinking pandas were stupid, that they were an evolutionary dead-end that could not even reproduce without the help of the Chinese state. But it seems we have underestimated them. A giant panda by the name of Ai Hin fooled her keepers into thinking she was pregnant to get more food. Perhaps humans have something to learn from A ...

Long life

Aug 27 2014 10:00pm CDT | Source: Spectator Magazine

Back from holiday in Italy, I look out of my kitchen window in Northamptonshire to find the country view blocked by an enormous marquee with red pennants flying from the top. People are bustling about, carrying boxes of cutlery, glasses and china. I suddenly remember that there is to be a wedding reception here tomorrow. I let people hold such receptions to help pay for the maintenance of two crumbling Inigo Jones pavilions, the surviving appendages of a 17th-ce ...
