Delhi delight for Vettel

first_img0Shares0000NEW DELHI, India, October 28 – Reigning champion Sebastian Vettel rattled off his fourth successive win of the season in the Indian Grand Prix here Sunday to tighten his grip on the title showdown with three races remaining.The 25-year-old German produced another flawless display to pull 13 points clear of Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, who came in second, 10 seconds behind.Vettel, who led from piller to post to add this to his wins in South Korea, Japan and Singapore and his seasonal debut success in Bahrain, is seeking to become the youngest triple champion in Formula One history. Vettel’s Red Bull teammate Mark Webber took third with McLaren duo Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button in fifth and sixth.The only danger to Vettel in an otherwise seamless success came in the closing laps when sparks sprayed out from underneath his car’s front spoiler, but despite Alonso being alerted to the incident by his team over the car radio it proved a false alarm.Felipe Massa came home sixth in the second Ferrari ahead of his old friend Kimi Raikkonen of Lotus, Nico Hulkenberg of Force India, Romain Grosjean in the second Lotus and 10th placed Bruno Senna of Williams.It was Vettel’s 26th win and he revelled in his familiar trick of adding the fastest lap of the race in the final lap and then standing atop of his car to milk the applause from the crowd.Vettel, aiming to become Formula One’s youngest triple champion, said: “Two years and two wins here, it’s a very special Grand Prix, I don’t know what it is about this circuit.“A big thanks to my team, we’re all pushing very hard.“This is another good step (to the title) for us but there is still a long way to go.”Alonso commented: “It’s not easy at the moment to fight with Red Bull but we will never give up….”RESULTS1.

Growth causes concern

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card These were some of the reasons Prudential Equity Group chief investment officer Edward Keon mentioned Monday when he dropped his recommendation that investors keep 100 percent of their portfolios in equities. He now recommends that investors keep 55 percent of their portfolios in equities. The January employment report “began to rattle the cozy consensus that has been expecting just one or two more rate hikes from the Federal Reserve in 2006,” Bank of America strategist Thomas McManus wrote, saying the drop in the unemployment rate and indications of wage pressure were “particularly troubling.” The “potentially negative impact” of surprise rate increases spurred by the data “cannot be overlooked,” he wrote. Others on the Street are looking at the data, then switching to The Weather Channel. UBS economist Maury N. Harris wrote before Thursday’s release of unemployment claims, “Mild weather probably continued to hold down claims.” The bank’s economic note had a graph with a fever chart showing the temperature’s deviation from normal between January 2004 and January 2006. NEW YORK – In the good-news-can-be-bad-news world of Wall Street, recent data showing growth in employment and wages have worried some investors. Their fear: More jobs and higher wages could spark inflation and prompt the Federal Reserve to continue its march of short-term interest rate hikes. But the strong employment and pay numbers have become a source of contention on the Street. Some economists and strategists believe the employment and pay picture is less inflationary than the data would suggest. One of their arguments is that employment figures have more to do with unseasonably warm weather than economic strength, since more construction workers are on the job now than they would be during a colder winter. Among the data at issue is January’s unemployment figure, which sank to 4.7 percent, its lowest level since July 2001. The four-week average of jobless claims Thursday fell to its lowest level in six years, according to the Labor Department. Then there are employees’ average hourly earnings, which trailed inflation for most workers last year, but rose to $16.41 in January, up 3.3 percent from a year ago. “Some of the conditions that have ripened the growth outlook at the start of 2006 are unlikely to last into spring,” wrote Citigroup’s U.S. economist Steven Wieting. “Abnormally warm weather boosted construction activity in December. … Judging by a 46,000 gain in construction employment in January, the winter 2006 will go down as an unusually early and strong period for building activity.” But increased inventories of residential housing could mean slower construction come spring, Wieting wrote. Merrill Lynch North American economist David Rosenberg called jobs figures “weather distorted.” “As for the employment report, I think there’s a danger of overreacting over the message from it because this was the third warmest January in the past 112 years,” Rosenberg wrote. Ian Shepherdson, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics, said he had “lingering suspicions that something is not quite right with the sudden plunge in (unemployment) claims over the past month or so.” But Thursday’s numbers convinced him the data “looks to be the real deal.” If claims stay this low, the labor market could “become almost as tight as at the peak of the ’90s boom,” he wrote. The signs of higher wages, which you’d expect to see in a tight labor market, are already popping up in the data. But Merrill’s Rosenberg said they don’t bear scrutiny. “For those claiming that we have a humdinger of a tight labor market … and this is reflected in the average hourly earnings data – think again,” he wrote. He pinned most of the increase to jobs in information technology, where average hourly earnings went from a 2.5 percent increase a year ago to 6.1 percent now. Wages in the financial sector also jumped. For every industry seeing wage acceleration, such as education, health and construction, another industry is seeing wages fall, as is the case in manufacturing, leisure, hospitality, transportation and utilities, he wrote. The unseasonable increase in construction jobs is skewing pay statistics, too, he argued, pointing out that construction pay is 17 percent above the average for all industries. “The wage data reflected the mix of jobs last month,” he said. It “was not due to individuals demanding higher pay for what they were doing.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Harry Kane’s late winner papers over England cracks in dull Slovenia victory

first_img1 Harry Kane celebrates the winning goal Harry Kane fired England to next summer’s World Cup but his last-gasp winner cannot paper over the cracks after Gareth Southgate’s men limped to victory against limited Slovenia.Dull, flat and uneventful all aptly describe a Group F encounter that may secure World Cup qualification but leaves just as many questions as answers – an all too common theme in recent matches.So underwhelming was this encounter that fans seemed more excited about paper planes landing on the pitch, with England offering precious little to shout about until captain Kane directed home to secure a stodgy 1-0 win in stoppage time.The Three Lions may be able to book their flights for Russia but this listless display against a the ranked 55th in the world only underlines the work that needs to be done to stop next summer ending up like the last World Cup or Euro 2016.After a dreadful opening period, Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane had efforts in quick succession during a brief flash of second-half excitement – but there were also moments when Slovenia threatened to inflict a first qualifying defeat since October 2009.Such a ponderous performance tested fans’ patience, but those that waited around finally had a moment to enjoy in stoppage time as Kane beat Slovenia goalkeeper Jan Oblak from a fine Walker cross.While this did not feel like a particularly positive occasion, Southgate deserves credit for taking the reins in difficult circumstances following Sam Allardyce’s exit and steering England to the World Cup with a game to spare.The England boss can now use Sunday’s trip to Lithuania as a chance to experiment – a match Dele Alli is available for again having served a one-match ban against Slovenia.Sterling came in for Alli and quickly went about stretching the Slovenia defence, whose close attention John Stones claimed should have brought an early penalty.Possession failed to translate into clear-cut chances, though, and England’s play soon deteriorated.Slovakia took an early lead at Wembley last month when Rashford made a mistake in his own third and this time it was Sterling whose sloppiness put his side under pressure. Josip Ilicic ended up being threaded through, with Joe Hart appearing to catch him when sweeping up.No penalty was given and there was another sigh of relief when Roman Bezjak failed to connect with a cross against a struggling England side, whose captain Kane took aim for distance in a hopeful attempt.Oblak, Atletico Madrid’s superb goalkeeper, dealt with that comfortably and impressively swatted away a Jordan Henderson shot as Slovenia’s goal really came under threat for the first time.Play had long since stopped when Kane headed home a corner, with Oblak scampering across to tip wide Rashford’s free-kick before Manchester United attacker’s corner was flicked wide at near post by Gary Cahill.Unfortunately, half-time did not bring an injection of excitement and urgency and Slovenia had the first attempt of the second half through Bojan Jokic.The visitors were not pulling up any trees but nor were the hosts offering any serious threat, with England taking until the 63rd minute to muster a serious second-half attempt.Sterling bared down on goal as the hosts caught out Slovenia’s backline and played in Rashford to get a clipped attempt away that was too weak and hacked away by Rajko Rotman.A crucial, if unorthodox, block from captain Bostjan Cesar prevented Sterling from slotting home in the 65th minute, with Kane flashing a first-time strike just as fans began to get excited about something aside from aiming to reach the pitch with paper planes.Tensions threatened to boil over as accusing glances were aimed at Stones, while at the other end Hart, looking in discomfort, burst off his line to bravely throw himself in front of Tim Matavz.It was a brave save, and a poor decision not to call offside by the linesman, with Southgate turning to defender Michael Keane as a uninspiring replacement for Sterling.Walker saw a drive denied by Oblak as England pushed for a goal that arrived deep in stoppage time.Slovenia coach Srecko Katanec could only laugh as Walker cut out Oblak’s throw and cross for Kane, whose shot had too much for the otherwise impressive goalkeeper at the death.last_img read more
