We are not lost, says Honda F1 head

10 June 2017

Renault's Nico Hulkenberg says he would welcome the arrival of Fernando Alonso at the French team next year.

Fernando Alonso has said he will leave McLaren unless the team can provide him with a winning auto by September, and insisted he would also walk out of the sport if plans to increase the number of races to 25 were implemented.

"I think Zak's comments about the Honda team are probably what you expect him to say".

"So we will do everything. Tomorrow our priority is to push to get into Q3, but for that we need to do a good job".

"If there are 25 or 26 races or whatever, I think it's good in one aspect but in other aspects, in how demanding becomes your life, at this point of my career, I consider that a good quality of life is more important than to do more seasons in F1".

Trump rages against ex-FBI chief James Comey, calls him a 'leaker'
On Friday, Trump strongly suggested Comey had lied about their encounters and accused him of being a "leaker". Mueller is exploring possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian interference in the USA election.

He added: "We have a plan B, a Plan C. We have some plans".

"Right now, we're not racing well, not finishing races and that can't happen any more".

Brown's comments come on the heels of those made by ever-forthright McLaren driver Fernando Alonso, who has expressed his continued displeasure with the pairing for the last two years.

Liberty Media, which took control of the sport in January, is keen to stage at least four grands prix in its native America - with New York, Las Vegas and Miami all under consideration to join the one Stateside race already hosted in Texas. "If we are winning before September when I make a decision, I will stay".

"Like any professional organisation you sit down and say "we have to speak about targets, speak about commitment" - and we can't miss targets constantly".

What's new in Apple iOS 11?
You won't get new system updates for iOS 10, either, although Apple will continue to release security updates for now. With all the improvements and updates coming our way, it looks like Apple "cranked it up to 11" with the next iOS.

Expressing disappointment that a planned upgrade for this weekend's Canadian GP had not materialised, Brown said Honda appeared "lost" with their F1 programme and that McLaren had "serious concerns" about the Japanese firm's ability to win a world championship, the partnership's stated aim since reuniting amid much fanfare in 2015.

Identifying and rectifying the problem before this weekend's grand prix is paramount.

F1 chairman and CEO, Chase Carey, added his number one priority is to ensure "quality over quantity" and revealed Liberty Media is evaluating adding a second race in the USA, with NY among the cities being considered.

However, it has turned into a disappointing spell for McLaren as they have remained noncompetitive over the past three years and it has largely been put down to the lack of performance and reliability issues with the Honda engine.

Lebanon ministry calls for ban of Wonder Woman film
My fingers are crossed that the assumed success of Wonder Woman will elicit more female-driven superhero films from DC and beyond. This is huge because it paves the way for other characters we love on the panel to have a chance to shine on the big screen.
