Fantastic victory by Daniel Ricciardo at the Hungarian GP

A proud Daniel took top spot on top the podium after a fantastic race in the Hungarian GP, overtaking Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso in the last four laps. Sebastian Vettel finished the race in seventh position, having lost ground after the safety car came out.

It wasn’t a great race,” said Sebastian. “I spun, which was my mistake, and before that I was unlucky with the safety car in the first stint. The timing meant the first four cars lost positions to those running behind. Unfortunately we were then in the wrong mode for the restart and I lost two positions. It’s good for Daniel that he won today, I’m happy for him.”

F1 Grand Prix of Hungary - Qualifying

The weather in Hungary wasn’t in their favour at the start of the race. Daniel left the starting grid in fourth position but, just after finishing the first lap, he fell back two positions because of the weather conditions. It wasn’t until lap 8 that Ricciardo got fully into the race.

F1 Grand Prix of Hungary - Qualifying

Marcus Ericsson (Carterham) lost control of his car on lap 3, which brought the safety car out. Ahead of him, Rosberg, Bottas and Vettel couldn’t stop to change tyres as they had already passed the entrance to the pit lane.

Ricciardo, however, was able to change his tyre strategy, switching them for softer ones, in anticipation of the rain stopping. This allowed Daniel to climb up from sixth place and move into the top positions.

But Ricciardo’s victory didn’t come easy. On lap 23 another accident brought the safety car onto the circuit again. Sergio Perez (Force India) lost control of his car and crashed against the pit wall. The Team decided to seize the moment and change the tyres again. Daniel entered the race in sixth position but had a certain advantage over the others, having already changed his tyres.

This advantage soon paid off as by lap 39 he was leading the race ahead of Felipe Massa (Williams), Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) and Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes).

The race got even more exciting when, on lap 54, Massa had to stop to change his tyres, leaving Daniel free. Fernando Alonso was now leading the race and was pushing his tyres to the limit; Hamilton, behind him, wasn’t planning to stop either. Daniel took advantage of his fresh tyres and put the pressure on Alonso and Hamilton.

After various attempts to overtake Hamilton, Ricciardo performed a masterstroke and was leading by lap 68, finishing in first position at the end of the race.

Winning this today, it honestly feels as good as the first. It sank in a lot quicker this one, so crossing the line today I knew what was going on a bit more and it’s like I could enjoy it immediately rather than it being delayed, it was awesome,” Daniel said afterwards.

To have to pass guys again to win the race, as I did in Canada, makes it a lot more satisfying, knowing that we did have a bit of a fight on our hands – you beauty!”

In this environment now I feel I am a different driver and in a way a different person, a different sportsman than I was last year. I’ve got a lot more belief in myself and it’s cool, I definitely feel like I belong here now and I’ve got confidence; obviously we’ve converted two races into wins this year so far and I think that confidence is showing. I’ve got some friends from Australia here this weekend, so the plan was to always have a few drinks tonight, so I think we’ve got an excuse to now!”

Pepe Jeans wishes to congratulate Daniel Ricciardo and Infiniti Red Bull Racing on their excellent win, and we hope to see the same result in the next GP!

Explaining why he chose LEGOs, Nathan Sawaya says:
I use LEGO bricks as my medium because I enjoy seeing people’s reactions to artwork created from something with which they are familiar. Everyone can relate to it since it is a toy that many children have at home

Included in the exhibit is a T-Rex skeleton measuring over six meters in length and contains over 80,000 LEGO bricks.

Vettel and Ricciardo have a great time in an exciting German GP

Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo showed us once again exactly what they’re capable of. Both drivers negotiated the obstacles in their path and finished in fourth and sixth position respectively.

F1 Grand Prix of Germany

Nico Rosberg managed to notch up his fourth win this season. Just behind him was the Williams‘ driver, Valtteri Bottas, who crossed the line in second place, followed by the second Mercedes driver, Lewis Hamilton, securing third place after having started from the 20th position on the grid.

F1 Grand Prix of Germany

Sebastian Vettel fought yet another epic duel with Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso and, after a few tyre changes, managed to get past the Spaniard. Daniel Ricciardo wasn’t so lucky, however, also joining the battle between the third-time champion and the Ferrari driver, but failing to overtake the latter.

F1 Grand Prix of Germany - Practice

It was fun with Fernando today – we started maybe where we left off in Silverstone,” said Seb. “It was quite entertaining, the first half of the race, and at one point it was quite tight with both the Ferraris, but we managed to stay ahead.”

These are the moments and battles that I personally thrive off and enjoy,” Daniel Ricciardo confessed. “Fernando is known to be a tough fighter and I thought who better to have a good fight with. I was on the Primes and he was on fresher options and I gave it the best fight I could and, well.., nearly!”

But the race was by no means a bed of roses. Just after they got the starting signal, Felipe Massa (Williams) and Kevin Magnussen (McLaren) clashed, leaving Massa uninjured but out of the race. Magnussen was able to continue, but was left at the rear. Daniel Ricciardo was also affected by the accident and was forced to take evasive action, which made him drop back to 15th position. That didn’t mean his race was ruined though, because the Infiniti Red Bull Racing driver put all his skills to the test and continued to claw back positions until finally finishing the race in 6th position.

I wasn’t as worse off as Massa and hopefully he is okay,” Daniel Ricciardo said. “I was on the outside and the collision happened, I had to avoid it and went pretty far down the field, I don’t know exactly how far back. From then on I just got on to the radio and said let’s make an amazing recovery and make ourselves proud today. And I think we did that, we fought hard and we didn’t leave anything on the table.”

The race ended with Rosberg in first position, Bottas in second, Hamilton in third, Vettel in fourth, Alonso in fifth, and Ricciardo in sixth position.

That was one of the most enjoyable races I’ve had. I mean, not on the first lap, obviously, that was just the wrong place at the wrong time.” Said Daniel Ricciardo.

F1 Grand Prix of Germany - Qualifying

Team Principal Christian Horner said that the race result was the most he expected from the team in this hard but exciting race:

Fourth and sixth were the absolute maximum we could achieve out of today, especially after the first corner when Daniel did an amazing job to avoid the accident. There was some great racing with Sebastian and Fernando early in the race and he was really our main competitor today. Our strategy worked out that we were able to beat him in the end reasonably comfortably with Sebastian and Daniel came close as well after recovering extremely well and fighting hard with some more great racing towards the end. It was an exciting Grand Prix – there’s still a big gap to Mercedes but we’re working hard to try and close it down.”

F1 Grand Prix of Germany

The Infiniti Red Bull Racing drivers are now eagerly awaiting the next race, in Hungary, where we hope they’ll show once again what they’re capable of, and enjoy it as much as they did in this German GP.

Lana Del Rey´s newest Album “Ultraviolence“

Toppling the world charts once again with her recently released album, “Ultraviolence,” Lana Del Rey´s is back with her signature retro sound, vintage appearance, and various references to American pop culture. Making its debut after her previous album “Born to Die” released in 2012, this album surpasses all expectations. Aided by Black KeysDan Auerbach hip-hop beats were traded in for more instrumental elements creating a more aesthetic sound.

LanaDelRey-WKTDJ

The title, Ultraviolence, taken from Anthony Burgess’ dystopian novel A Clockwork Orange, foreshadows the darker sound her album produces. This 11-track album mixes passion, aspiration, and sadness into one as Del Rey´s dives straight into the center of American Culture singing about money, cars, drugs and relationships with bad boys.

Feel the passion from the start listening to the opening song “Cruel World,” which contains seductive lyrics about the relief she felt moving on from a destructive Bonnie and Clyde relationship. Wondering in her little red party dress she sings “shared my body and mind with you, that’s all over now.”

Or perhaps cruise down Southern California listening to “West Coast” or visit New York in the song “Brooklyn Baby.” A parody about New York hipsters portrayed with lyrics about her boyfriend in band. This unforgettable album that will leave you satisfied from start to finish!

Ricciardo climbs the podium and Vettel battles it out in one of the most exciting duels of the season

The Silverstone race was one of the most entertaining in the F1 World Championship so far. Daniel Ricciardo finished the Great Britain GP with a well-deserved third place, making this his fourth appearance on the podium this season.

Sebastian Vettel finished in fifth but battled it out in the Championship‘s most exciting duels to date, together with Fernando Alonso. Lewis Hamilton won the race again, making this his fifth victory of the season. He was followed by Valtteri Bottas.

F1 Grand Prix of Great Britain - Practice

But what really marked this race was the spectacular crash suffered by Kimi Raikkonen, which immediately brought out the safety car and resulted in the race being red flagged. Fortunately though, Raikkonen was able to walk away from the car and suffered no major injury. Even so, the race was stopped for an hour. Taking advantage of the red flag downtime our Infiniti Red Bull Racing team swapped their tyres for a harder set.

F1 Grand Prix of Great Britain - Qualifying

“After the initial delay we elected to change both drivers onto the harder tyre for the restart, which we believed would give us more strategic options,” Team Principal Christian Horner said. “We decided to pit relatively early to try and get the undercut on the McLaren cars ahead and, whilst that was successful with both the cars, unfortunately it put us out of the range of a one stop with Sebastian.”

When the race resumed, Daniel was overtaken by Bottas and Alonso. He made a pit stop on lap 15 and the Team decided that Daniel should make a second stop further on, but after an on-the-spot decision he finally kept going until he crossed the finish line.

“The one stop wasn’t planned,” Daniel Ricciardo said. “We pitted quite early on the Prime because we were quite slow and it wasn’t working, so we came in for the Option and, at one point, my engineer pretty much said alright four laps to go on this tyre then let’s box. I said the pace seems OK, the tyres aren’t getting any worse and let’s try and stay out or at least think about keeping me out there and he said OK we’ll look at our options. Then, a few laps later he said do you think you can go to the end, there’s 15 or 20 laps to go, and I said, at the moment I think we can give it a crack. And so, yeah, we did and it paid off!”

However, what was to mark the final outcome of the race was Nico Rosberg’s gearbox problems, which forced the German to retire on the 29th lap. Ricciardo demonstrated perfect control of his car and overtook the rest of his opponents, climbing up to third position. With 15 laps to go, Ricciardo was only 10 seconds behind Button, but the McLaren driver had fresher tyres. Button made up ground quickly and by the final lap he was just 1.8s behind Ricciardo. Daniel held on bravely, however, to claim what he called “the best third place I’ve ever got”.

For Vettel, the race was marked by a thrilling battle with Fernando Alonso. Both displayed their technical skills and temperament over 10 laps but Vettel played his cards right and finally overtook Alonso on lap 46.

“After we pitted him for the second time, he dropped behind Fernando and then had an enthralling battle with him, finally making a great move to get the pass. However it cost him a great deal of time to be able to catch the cars ahead, so fifth was the maximum we could achieve with Sebastian today.” Team Principal Christian Horner said.

Finally, Hamilton crossed the line first, pursued by Bottas and Ricciardo. Daniel is now on 98 points, 11 points more than Fernando Alonso, who is in fourth place. The 10 points from the Silverstone race leave Vettel in seventh position in the Drivers’ standings.

F1 Grand Prix of Great Britain

“I feel good!” Daniel Ricciardo said. “I’m not normally ecstatic with a third but I really am today, obviously to redeem myself from yesterday and also the fact that I don’t think we had an awesome race car today, but we made it work.

F1 Grand Prix of Great Britain

We’re already looking forward to the next GP, on Vettel’s home turf in Germany!

Skywalking, the latest photo trend

Taking photography to a new dimension, skywalking is the latest craze that was started by teenagers in Russia and has now spread to other parts of the world. Characterised as another adventure to add to your bucket list, skywalking involves climbing buildings, monuments, or any other tall structure to shoot a one of a kind photograph with an exceptional background. Taking adventure to the next level, most of those who participate climb without the use of any safety equipment.

One of the first to popularize this latest fad was Vadim Mahora, who along with his team climbed to jaw-dropping heights to take breathtaking photography of Europe’s most famous attractions from a perspective never seen before. Although the photos are incredible, we would recommend not trying it at home!
