However, even with heavier steering and massive downforce, these cars are not the same monsters as those of the last V6 turbo era, which even the magnificent Gilles Villeneuve hated. ‘The cars now are so refined and the hybrid engines have a very smooth application,’ says Palmer. ‘The torque is huge, though – even drivers from the V10 era think of these cars as beasts.’ R.S. 17: will F1 improve as a spectacle in 2017 Renault admits that nobody will really know whether these cars are going to improve the spectacle of Formula 1 until the lights go out for the first race of the season, in Melbourne. Some say that increased mechanical grip will mean drivers are able to find more novel lines around each other through corners. Others argue that such an increase in downforce is going to neuter the cut-and-thrust of wheel-to-wheel racing. Palmer, however, reckons than more drag will create a greater slipstream, allowing for more natural overtaking on the straights and, with the addition of DRS, far higher closing speeds.

These are the first pictures of what is thought to be Range Rover's 295bhp petrol-electric hybrid SUV, which could go on sale in 2018 A Range Rover plug-in hybrid model has been spotted testing ahead of a possible launch in 2018. The current fourth generation Range Rover had some mild updates for the 2017 model year, but these are the first pictures of a forthcoming hybrid model which could be introduced to the range with more updates for 2018. The test mule gets a new front bumper and grille, which is believed to house the charging port, while the lights at the front and back are also a new design. Warning stickers on the front and rear of the car indicate that this is an electrified model. It's thought to be powered by a hybrid unit which incorporates a 295bhp four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine and a lithium-ion battery, which is stored under the boot floor.

It was the fascination of the abomination. By the time the revivified Washington Post and The New York Times rose to the challenge, their worthy investigations were more or less lost in a tidal wave of populist fervor. Still, the failure of the media to even slow Trump early on was mystifying. There were so many flashing red lights along the way: the fraudulent birther movement; the mind-boggling insults; the refusal to turn over his tax returns; the call to supporters to attack protestors; the Access Hollywood tape; the warnings of a legion of leading Republicans and commentators on the right. Those of us who lived in New York had been reading — in my case, publishingstories about his moral and ethical turpitude going back decades. Locally Trump was known for stiffing construction workers and contractors, browbeating partners, real estate agents, local politicians and journalists, all the while sowing lawsuits as broadly as handfuls of alfalfa seeds.

(French accent) Hello. I have the panda-eye goggle marks. C'est la vie. I do not care. (sneezes) Much like I don't care when I sneeze and have an "oops" moment. Because I use lights by TENA. They keep you five times drier than regular liners, thanks to FeelFresh Technology. "Oops" moments happen. Say "C'est la vie" with lights by TENA. So what can you see, then? # Everybody's free.

They have urged South Gloucestershire Council to abandon the bus lane plan and build lay-bys instead where the buses could pull in. The new bus lane...
