Listen to this article The Mercedes driver was making a second attempt at a quick lap in Q3 on the damp circuit when he ran off the road at Turn 4 after locking up the rears on the entry and touching the grass. He could do little to slow himself down and ended up bouncing through a gravel trap before ending up on the escape road near the tyre barriers. But after trying to do a spin turn to get himself facing the right direction, his rear wheels got stuck in the gravel and he was out on the spot. While the deteriorating weather conditions meant no one was able to better their times, leaving Russell still third on the grid as Kevin Magnussen took a shock pole position, the Briton admitted on his return to the pits that the off had not been without his consequences. Asked what he was thinking as he ran off the road, he said: "What's going through my mind is I was getting a really bad headache. I've broken the headrest because my head was banging so much. It was a … [Read more...] about Russell’s helmet broke F1 headrest after gravel trap battering

Rockwell has found himself on an urgent mission. He has to find sand - tons of it - and fast. Property owners in a picturesque beachside community just south of Daytona Beach hired him to buttress their homes with new sand after the Category 1 storm - the second cyclone to hit the state in the span of six weeks. Swimming pools, porches and even entire houses crashed into the ocean below when the sand beneath them eroded. But these days the usual sources for sand - nearby underwater mounds and healthy beaches in other parts of the Sunshine State - are running low. What can be found is pricey. Rockwell estimates each house needs at least 275 dump truckloads pushed underneath to be saved - … [Read more...] about Florida beaches were already running low on sand. Then Ian and Nicole hit.
NEW YORK - As the triple Tony-winning choreographer of "Hamilton," "In the Heights" and "Bandstand," Andy Blankenbuehler has found artistic glory, satisfaction and success beyond imagining. But the story he burned to tell, the one that's gripped his imagination for more than a decade, is about getting everything you want yet realizing it's not enough. He also wanted to tell this through dance, his most cherished language. Yet as Blankenbuehler looked around the musical-theater world, he couldn't find the inspiration he was craving. Where were the new dance-driven shows, he wondered - the ones that put dancers first and let dancing tell the story? "There's a lot of storytelling ability in dance, but in musical theater, people champion words first," he says on a recent evening at the off-Broadway MCC Theater, a couple of hours before the curtain rises on his new show, "Only Gold." "And so many times as a dancer, you don't feel integral. You don't feel like you are helping the story … [Read more...] about ‘Hamilton’ choreographer couldn’t find a show he liked. So he wrote one.
Last weekend Lewis Hamilton ended a Formula 1 season without winning a race for the first time in his career. Advert | Become a Supporter & go ad-free However his Mercedes team did win during 2022, and his arch rival Max Verstappen believes Hamilton missed one opportunity to win this season. At the opening race in Bahrain, Hamilton’s Mercedes lost over a second per lap to the race-leading Ferrari and Red Bull. It was clear the W13 wasn’t going to win races any time soon. But by the mid-point of the season the team were starting to lead grands prix, and on a weekend where the track and conditions suited them, and the stars aligned in their favour, victories finally started to seem possible. So how many chances to win a race did Hamilton have before the end of the season? And how many of those might he realistically have converted? British Grand Prix It took until the 10th race of the season for Hamilton to finally lead a lap in 2022. Fittingly, this came … [Read more...] about How many victory chances did Hamilton have in his first winless F1 season? · RaceFans
Charles Leclerc has revealed the loss of a victory at his home race at Monaco was the hardest pill for him to swallow in the 2022 season. The Ferrari driver had been leading in soaking wet conditions around the Principality in May, but while some drivers went straight from full wet tyres to slicks and others had pitted before him, Leclerc’s stop for intermediates was followed by an extra stop just three laps later for dry tyres. This dropped the Monégasque driver from the lead down to fourth on the road at his home race, eventually finishing off the podium in an extremely disappointing afternoon which saw him lose a probable home win. He vented his anger at the move after the race, saying over team radio: “No words. The season is long, but we cannot do that.” In an interview with L’Equipe in France, Leclerc was discussing a year which gradually saw any title chances slip away from him through a combination of driver and team errors in the middle of the season, before Max … [Read more...] about Charles Leclerc singles out his most painful moment of the F1 2022 season
