    Lewis Hamilton, Vettel, Rosberg Lineup After F1 Qualifying Bahrain

    in News

    It was a fascinating day in Bahrain during Formula One Qualifying. Mercedes champion and current master of the universe in Formula One, Lewis Hamilton did not disappoint as he easily cruised into pole position.  In four races, Hamilton has been on pole four times for a total of 42, which places him 4th on all times list of pole sitters.


    Following Hamilton was Sebastian Vettel, Nico Rosberg, Kimi Raikkonen, and Valtteri Bottas. Two top drivers will dominate the front row on race day and fans will be in for a blockbuster.  Bottas Williams-Martini teammate Felipe Massa qualified 6th and Red Bull Daniel Ricciardo 7th.  Carlos Sainz Jr. with Toro Rosso and Romain Grosjean with Lotus were, 9th and 10th respectively.


    As we last reported, the thorn in the side of the powerful Mercedes team will be, and is, the new and improved Ferrari team with former Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen.


    Sahara Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg qualified 8th and Sergio Perez 11th.  Unfortunately for the McLaren-Honda team, Fernando Alonso made a gallant effort but was held at 14th, and Jenson Button’s car appeared to have some electrical issues preventing him from making it into Q3.  Red Bull Daniil Kvyat rolled into a sand trap at P3 and failed to make it past Q1.

    Lewis Hamilton Wins the Big Bad Battle in Bahrain at the Formula One Grand Prix

    in News

    There was plenty of drama when the lights went down at the Formula One Grand Prix in Bahrain.  The night race started with Mercedes pole sitter and champion, Lewis Hamilton out front.  Hamilton was followed by Ferrari drivers Sebastian Vettel and teammate, Kimi Raikkonen, who worked together to block Mercedes second driver, Nico Rosberg, from advancing from third to second, by pushing him back to fourth.  A determined Rosberg was not going to settle for third or fourth, so, in lap nine, Rosberg overtook Raikkonen and Vettel to claim second, while Hamilton remained the leader of the pack.


    In lap 35 when Rosberg emerged from a pit stop, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel leap frogged and got out in front, but could not stay there. Meanwhile, both Toro Rosso drivers Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz Jr. were retired.


    By lap 47, it was Hamilton, Rosberg, Raikkonen, Bottas and Vettel in the top five.  Going into the final 7 laps, there was a fierce battle between Nico Rosberg and Kimi Raikkonen for second. Moving into lap 56 Raikkonen overtook Rosberg and claimed second, pushing Rosberg into third.  On the podium after the race, Raikkonen was disappointed that he had to settle for second, while fans wondered out loud if he was deluding himself into thinking he could have caught up with, and overtaken Hamilton, in the unstoppable Mercedes power unit.


    Crossing the finish line after the top three was Valtteri Bottas in fourth, Sebastian Vettel fifth, and Daniel Ricciardo who, barely made it across the finish line amidst a huge cloud of smoke bellowing from the back of his car. 


    Late Breaking News: The F1 race in Monza may be hanging in the wings. Like Germany, Monza has money problems.  The German automotive industry VW-Audi, did a study that showed tremendous support for an Audi F1 team, but, they dislike Bernie Egglestone so much, they refused to enter F1 as long as he is in control.

    TOO MANY BUREAUCRATS TOO MANY LAWYERS TOO MANY COMMUNISTS

    in Politics Conservative

    WHO LET THE AIR OUT OF THE FOOTBALL? WHY DID THE PATRIOT'S CENTER BUTT SIZE INCREASE BY 2% AFTER THE HIKE? WHY ARE THE PATRIOT STADIUM FRANKS ONE INCH SHOTER THAN OTHER FOOTBALL STADIUMS.


    IS IT TIME TO CALL FOR CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF HENRY WAXMAN THE FLAG BURNER, BABY KILLER AND BALL EXPERT. THE COMMUNIST TORQUMADA WHO CHARGED A YANKEE PICHER WITH STEALING SECOND BASE.


    IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO CONCENTRATE ON THEE ISSUES PRESENTED BY THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF DEATH. THAN TO ASK STUPID QUESTIONS LIKE WHO SET UP SEAL TEAM SIX? WHO LEFT THE BENGHAZI PATRIOTS TO DIE?  WHY ARE SOVIET TROOPS INVADING THE UKRAINE PRETENDING TO BE SEPRATISTS?


    ATTN JEWISH DEMOCRATS: WHY IS OBAMA DESTROYING ISRAEL? WHY DID HE AKE NETANYAHU TAKE THE GARBAGE OUT? WHO LOVES YOU BABY? CHRISTIANS OR MOSLEMS. WHY IS MOSES AND GOD'S COMMANDMENTS BANNED FROM COMMUNIST SCHOOLS.


    IF WE FALL WHO WILL TAKE US IN?


    WHY DID THE COMMUNIST DEMOCRAT PARTY GIVE EUROPE TO PUTIN, AFRICA TO BOKU HARAM, SYRIA TO ISIL. LEBANON TO HEZBOLLAH, ISRAEL TO HAMAS, YEMEN TO IRAN, BAHRAIN TO IRAN, SAUDI ARABIA TO IRAN AND THE SOVIETS,THE GCC TO IRAN AND THE SOVIETS, SOUTH KOREA, JAPAN, INDONESIA, PHILLIPINES, AUSTRALIA, TAIWAN AND INDIA TO CHINA..MIAMI TO THE CASTRO GIRLS?

    The Bigger Picture with Timothy Spangler: Dec 14 Hour 1

    in Politics Conservative

    Kim Kardashian is going to Saudi Arabia!

    Rumors are circulating that she has accepted a longstanding invitation from a Saudi prince to spend an evening with him in exchange for $1 million.

    An indecent proposal, perhaps? 

    Although a frequent visitor to glitzy Dubai, Kim's other trips to the region have not always gone well. In 2012, a trip to Bahrain to open a milkshake franchise sparked protests, with police firing tear gas to break up the demonstrations.

    Let's just hope that Kim remembers to pack her abaya. We don't want her to violate the strict Saudi dress codes!

    Meanwhile, the world continued to lurch from one ridiculous story to another:

    * A surprise has been found in Queen Elizabeth's garden at Buckingham Palace: magic mushrooms!

    * A Tokyo restaurant announced couples will not be welcome at the eatery on Christmas Eve because the sight of them would make single customers feel lonely.

    * A Scottish police officer attempting to make an arrest on a farm had to call for backup due to his fear of cows.

    * Authorities in New Zealand announced they seized a haul of imported moist towelettes that were found to be soaked in about a gallon of liquid meth.

    * A pair of Egyptian men are highlighting the struggles of Cairo residents with a photo project featuring Spider-Man tackling everyday activities.

    Xiro Xone F1 News. Lewis Hamilton Wins Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2014

    in News

    Mercedes AMG Petronas is at the top of the Constructors for the Formula One World Championship. Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton helped get them there with his second straight win Sunday, at the Formula One Grand Prix in Bahrain.  Hamilton's brilliant calculations were instrumental in fending off his greatest challenger, teammate Nico Rosberg. Roberg had fresh tires and the Drag Reduction System (DRS) option. Hamilton had to keep him close enough to prevent the use of the DRS, while racing on tires that were in need of a change. Fans have said, "it was the most exciting race they have seen in a long time."  After three races, Nico Rosberg is in the lead with points after winning one race and two second place podiums. Lewis Hamilton is second in scoring points after winning two races, and missing points for the first race, due to car trouble. While it is still early in the season, fans are asking "where in the world is Red Bull and Ferrari"?

    Sergio Perez with Sahara Force India came in third, after a very impressive drive.  And not to be over-looked, is the ever dependable Williams-Martini driver, Valtteri Bottas, who continues to score points for the Williams team.

    Next race, China
