Scuderia Ferrari Monegasque driver Charles Leclerc says the Maranello team should still be “proud” of what it did for him at the Bahrain Grand Prix, despite the engine problem that cost him his maiden Formula 1 win. The 21-year old had looked on course for a brilliant victory before a dropped cylinder cost him power in the closing stages and he slipped back to third. But although disappointed by the outcome, he says that Ferrari has no reason to be ashamed of what it managed to do over the weekend – and he has complete faith it will get to the bottom of the engine fault. “It has been an unforgettable weekend for me,” said Charles, who took his first F1 pole position on Saturday. “They have given us a great car during the weekend.

Trains can be a wonderful way to travel in comfort and style. The Train Suite Shiki-shima luxury train in Japan is probably as close as you’d come to experiencing train heaven. We’ve seen the pictures and now there’s video to take your breath away. The train first blew our minds in 2017, but a new video uploaded to Train Video Collection on YouTube gives us an even more intimate look inside it. The whole thing is set to beautiful background music that sounds like it was lifted straight from a Miyazaki film. It’s perfect. The train is extremely distinctive-looking because of its irregularly shaped window design. From the inside, it looks more like a modern art museum than any train that I’ve seen before.
