January 25 2017 11:45 am F1’s practice format is far from riveting (Source: Reuters) Top News When one of your biggest stars says your series sends him to sleep there are serious issues to be addressed and this is the situation facing Formula One’s new owner With the autocratic Bernie Ecclestone moving aside after nearly 40 years the task falls to US sports and entertainment firm Liberty Media to win back dissatisfied fans and make the series much more fairly governed yet unpredictable and thrilling again Liberty Media completed its takeover of F1 on Monday and Ecclestone was replaced by Chase Carey as chief executive Here is a look at the key issues as Liberty tries to give F1 its edge back BORING PRACTICE SESSIONS F1’s practice format is far from riveting Races have three practice sessions –usually split over two days –before Saturday afternoon qualifying But sometimes there is little or even nothing for fans to see It is commonplace for drivers to wait in the team garage for long spells as they conserve tires for the race thus picking and choosing when to practice Even out on track there is little competitive driving during practice such is the heavy emphasis on tire management This chronic lack of excitement prompted two-time world champion Fernando Alonso one of F1’s most popular drivers to make the remarkable statement that F1 should be paying fans to watch “Fans want to see fast cars something where you cannot close your mouth after you see the car passing I was 30 minutes today outside the circuit and I was sleeping” he said after watching a practice session at the Brazilian Grand Prix “We should pay the people who are in the grandstands to watch the cars passing” A year earlier the Spanish driver used wry humor to express his frustration posting a picture online of him reclining lazily in a deckchair during qualifying Alonso’s message was clear: F1 has become too predictable and sedate PRESEASON TESTING One avenue for Liberty to explore could be revamping preseason testing as well This is split into two four-day periods where accumulating the maximum amount of laps is the priority as teams smooth out any reliability issues Last year Mercedes logged a mind-boggling 1294 laps in eight days of testing outside of Barcelona equivalent to nearly 20 Grand Prix distances But fans deserve more than a slow merry-go-round of cars doing countless laps without any competition FAIRER WEALTH DISTBRUTION In recent years particularly issues were regularly raised about the top-heavy distribution of wealth benefiting big teams and squeezing out smaller ones This is highlighted by the Manor team which was rescued from administration just in time for the 2015 season But at the end of last year’s campaign it missed out on 10th place by one point and a subsequent windfall of nearly $10 million and is once again battling administration BETTER DECISIONS Smaller teams got less say because of the overly strong influence held by Ecclestone and big teams like Mercedes Red Bull and Ferrari in the F1 strategy group meetings The iron-fisted decision-making often with Ecclestone having the final word has often proved erratic and unpopular Ecclestone stuck with Pirelli as the tire supplier against the wishes of many teams particularly after a chaotic 2013 campaign in which tires blew up or disintegrated Two other of Ecclestone’s inventions _ the double points rule on the final day of the 2014 season and confusing changes to qualifying at the start of last season _ were both quickly scrapped A greater democracy and a wider input from F1 will help soothe the bitter in-fighting that plagues the series PROTECTING F1’S IDENTITY Some track owners must be breathing a sigh of relief Faced with rising track costs and a ruthless negotiator in Ecclestone much-loved races like the Italian GP in Monza and the German GP have been under severe threat This year’s German GP to be staged at the Hockenheimring was scrapped due to financial problems and dwindling attendances The British race at Silverstone is also at risk Ecclestone has been heavily criticized for overlooking historic popular races to develop new financially attractive ones in Abu Dhabi Bahrain Russia and Azerbaijan The growing uncertainty over which tracks would make the calendar turned into a season-long debate sending out a negative message Storied venues are a valuable part of F1’s identity MORE DRIVER SKILLS Anyone watching an F1 race these days will regularly hear drivers being told –and sometimes firmly ordered –by their teams to save tires and not race too hard This only adds to the predictability as the better drivers are less vulnerable to the unexpected But fans want more uncertainty Dramatically limiting the amount of times engineers can directly communicate with drivers would add to the drama and the spectacle Liberty must also resolve the Pirelli issue and decide whether it wants to move back to harder tires that last longer and limit dull pit-stop strategy Gimmicks such as DRS 0 designed to help drivers overtake at certain times during a race – would no longer be needed if drivers were allowed a purer form of racing without so much team intervention THE BRAWN EFFECT Who better to help revitalize F1 than a widely admired strategist who helped Michael Schumacher win all seven of his F1 titles Liberty has appointed Brawn as managing director of motorsports in a highly popular move Brawn helped Ferrari win 11 world titles and seven with Williams and Benetton Brawn also won the 2009 F1 title against all odds with his own BrawnGP team and helped Mercedes develop a car that easily won three straight titles from 2014-16 SPICING UP RACE WEEK The iconic Monaco GP has no problem attracting fans every day That is due to its notoriety as a playground for the rich and its spectacular location with the glitzy circuit designed around the crystal blue waters of Monaco’s harbor Other races are not so geographically blessed and struggle to keep the appeal going from Thursday until Sunday Liberty has a chance to spice up race week with a more glamorous fun-filled US-style approach to buildup and fan interaction GETTING CONNECTED Digital media was an alien concept to Bernie Ecclestone who viewed it as futile and flatly refused to engage in it For Liberty improving the series’ connection with social media is a top priority Liberty sees it as a key way to massively broaden the global audience This would ideally help to enhance F1’s presence in the US where a new street race is planned and boost flagging races elsewhere For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBerlin: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan slammed European leaders as "insincere" and said reintroducing the death penalty was the will of the people in an interview with German public broadcaster ARD that was aired late Monday Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan AFP Erdogan who is conducting a sweeping purge of suspected sympathizers of the attempted coup on 15-16July said that "European leaders are insincere" for failing to uphold their commitments in a deal to stop migrants from entering Europe The Turkish leader said that the European Union had transferred up to 2 million euros (22 million dollars) of the 3 billion euros it promised to Ankara in exchange for the return of migrants to Turkey He also said that the EU had failed to follow through on its pledge to lift visa requirements for Turkish citizens Erdogan justified the death penalty by saying the government’s attempt to reintroduce it was in line with the will of the Turkish people and that the punishment existed "almost everywhere" except Europe "If we are in a democratic state of law the people decide And what are the people saying today They want the death penalty to be reintroduced" Erdogan told ARD "Europe is the only place where there is no death penalty It exists almost everywhere else" he added The interview was widely derided by German editorialists as a PR coup for Erdogan The ARD’s "feeble" interview questions resulted in a "guaranteed PR coup" for Erdogan whose "supporters in Germany will be delighted at how well the Turkish president was able to sell himself" according to an editorial in the conservative FAZ newspaper "One gets the impression that the [interviewer] handled Erdogan with kid gloves That’s no way to get to someone like Erdogan" an editorial in WAZ Germany’s biggest regional newspaper said The year 2017 has arguably been a great season for Indian golfers with wins aplenty and some very near misses on the biggest stage in the sport Not just victories the year was made special due to the reemergence of standout golfers who again got themselves into the mix and conversations There were also youngsters who continued their steady march upwards by making the right noises As the 2017 season for Indian golf comes to a close with the culmination of the McLeod Russel Tour Championship in Kolkata here’s a look at the golfers who made 2017 a standout season for India: Shamim Khan This wily 39-year-old from Delhi Golf Club took home the ‘Player of the Year’ honours by topping the PGTI order of merit which came down to the season finale in Kolkata last week Running neck-to-neck with young Udayan Mane it was Shamim who held on to finish the season on top His earnings for the season totalled to Rs 5164233 from the 18 events he played in He not only made all the cuts but also won thrice had eight top 3 finishes and 14 top 10 finishes Shiv Kapur India’s Shiv Kapur after winning the Panasonic India Open tournament in November AFP Another DGC boy the 35-year-old former Asian Games gold medallist arguably had one of his best years as a professional golfer He won twice on the Asian Tour First the Yeangder Heritage in Chinese Taipei in April to break his winless drought on the Asian Tour which has stretched over 11 years now He followed that up with a stunning three-shot win at the Panasonic India Open at his home club last month He also played in The Open but missed making in to the last two rounds by a solitary stroke He is in 10th place in the Asian Tour Order of Merit with earnings of $288873 from 19 events Arjun Atwal Still the only Indian golfer to win titles on the PGA Tour European Tour Webcom Tour and Asian Tour he has struggled with injuries for the past several seasons However in 2017 Atwal rolled back the clock He came to within a stroke of winning the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open a European Tour event a month ago He only lost the title in a playoff which deprived him of a wire-to-wire win after taking the lead on Day 1 with a course record round of 62 Atwal was named the captain for the Asia team for the Eurasia Cup 2018 a massive honour for Indian golf Rayhan Thomas Not yet an adult this Dubai-based young amateur has had a year to remember The India No 1 amateur got accepted by the University of Oklahoma on a golf scholarship Having won the Dubai Creek Open on the MENA Tour at his home club last year he finished second this year and in the process fired a world record nine birdies in a row Add to that his No 1 position on the international team at the Junior Presidents Cup and his run to the semi-finals of the US Junior Amateur Championship Moreover his WAGR ranking is 19 — that’s just 18 amateur golfers better than him in the world For now Gaganjeet Bhullar He heads to the Asian Tour finale at the Royal Trophy being held this week in Thailand Almost as big for the strapping 6-foot-tall golfer from Kapurthala was his win at the Macao Open a marquee event on the Asian Tour earlier this year which made him the youngest player to win eight titles on the Asian Tour This was also his 18th win as a professional golfer He currently sits at 15th spot on the Asian Tour Order of Merit having earned $253803 from 19 events Ajeetesh Sandhu Having lost out on the Macao Open title by a whisker to his countryman Bhullar he went on to win the Yeangder Tournament Players Championship ironically an event won by Bhullar back in 2012 Sandhu who grew up playing junior golf with Bhullar and Anirban Lahiri finally seems to be playing the golf he was always destined to and the two-year Asian Tour exemption that comes with this title will go a long way He is presently in 21st place on the Order of Merit having earned $210633 from just 11 starts this year He has won thrice on the PGTI previously SSP Chawrasia This man never ceases to amaze He kickstarted his year winning the Hero Indian Open at the ridiculously difficult DLF Golf and Country Club Gurgaon by a whopping seven strokes to successfully defend the title he had won at Delhi Golf Club last year This was also SSP’s 6th Asian Tour and 2nd European Tour title That he came tantalisingly close to another win on the European Tour at the iconic Hong Kong Open where he led the strong field after three rounds until slipping to 7th place continues to exhibit the tenacious nature of the 39-year-old maestro’s game Shubhankar Sharma The silent 21-year-old assassin ended 2017 with back-to-back victories Shubhankar won his maiden European Tour title a couple of weeks ago at the Joburg Open thus making it his 6th professional golf win in a four-year career With that he also sealed his ticket to The Open 2018 apparently his favourite major championship He returned home last week and won the PGTI McLeod Russel Tour Championship in Kolkata by outlasting Rashid Khan by a shot in a well-executed duel Clearly the hottest Indian golfer who will enjoy a wonderful Christmas and start 2018 at the Abu Dhabi Open with full status on the European Tour Aditi Ashok India’s Aditi Ashok in action during the 2017 Women’s British Open Golf Championship in August 2017 AFP The star of the young Olympian who won the LET Rookie of the Year last time around continues to shine and shine and then some The LPGA member now ranked #82 in the world won the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open in Abu Dhabi last month on the Ladies European Tour to continue her winning ways within the upper echelon of the game She now has five professional titles to her name and also retained her status on the LPGA taking home $162143 in her rookie year on the LPGA after making 14 cuts in the 21 events she played No small feat for a 19-year-old from Bangalore who until two years ago was still playing junior and amateur golf Anirban Lahiri The Indian No 1 continues to be the flagbearer for the nation 2017 presented several opportunities for the World No 66 With already two top 10 results in four starts at the start of the 2017-18 wrap around PGA Tour season he has set himself up very well for his next start in the new year His T2 finish at The Memorial earlier this year at the event of Jack Nicklaus himself was nothing short of spectacular The fact that he made it to two of the four FedEx playoff events ending with a T9 at the BMW Championships underlined the quality of golf and mental fortitude that Anirban takes to the biggest stage of the game And yes he earned $1944289 last season and has already pocketed $611090 after four events this season Lahiri was picked by the international team captain Nick Price to be a part of the Presidents Cup team and while internationals did get soundly thrashed it was Lahiri’s match on the final day with partner Si Woo Kim that earned them a rare point This represented a symbol of defiance pride and grit earning Lahiri a standing ovation from his teammates The

West Indies in the first innings of the third match (Source: PCB Twitter) Related News Azhar Ali’s 14th Test century anchored Pakistan to a first innings total of 376 as the tourists batted with exaggerated care on the second day of the third and final Test against the West Indies Left to negotiate 11 overs to the close of play at Windsor Park in Dominica the West Indies reached 14 without loss in reply Pakistan’s innings occupied all of 1463 overs at a scoring rate of just over two-and-a-half runs per over a puzzlingly pedestrian rate of progress on a benign pitch especially as victory would give Pakistan their first-ever Test series win in the Caribbean in eight attempts After crawling along in the morning session when only 58 runs came off 28 overs in two-and-a-half hours of play for the loss of Younis Khan’s wicket the tourists attempted to accelerate with captain Misbah-ul-Haq releasing the shackles of virtual strokelessness in getting to 59 Wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfraz Ahmed was by far the most enterprising of all in the Pakistan batting line-up though being ninth out for 51 off 73 balls “We wanted to get over 400 but losing wickets in the afternoon caused us to lose a bit of momentum” Ahmed explained after the day’s play “I just went out there with a positive intent looking to put the bowlers off and keep the score moving along” Off-spinner Roston Chase was the prime beneficiary of the visitors’ belated attempt at acceleration finishing with four for 103 while captain Jason Holder claimed three for 71 including two wickets off consecutive deliveries after tea that ended any reasonable prospect for Pakistan getting to a total in excess of 400 Chase ended Azhar Ali’s eight-hour vigil just after lunch in bowling the opening batsman for 127 before adding the wickets of Asad Shafiq and Misbah Painfully slow at the start of his innings the Pakistan skipper showed a greater degree of urgency through the afternoon adding 51 and completing a 39th fifty in Test cricket His intentions for the final session were obvious when he smashed leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo back overhead for four and then hoisted Chase for six over long-on But the bowler had the last laugh with the next delivery as an attempted reverse-sweep by Misbah gave wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich the opportunity to make amends for two earlier errors in the innings While 84 runs came in the middle session of the day it still could not adequately compensate for their bewilderingly slow rate of scoring in the morning when both Ali and Misbah seemed more intent on occupation of the crease than scoring runs Unbeaten on 85 overnight with the total at a promising 169 for two Ali added 37 of the morning’s 58 runs in getting to his 14th Test century and second in consecutive matches Yet it was not one of his more memorable efforts and by the time he fell missing an attempted sweep at Chase he had faced 334 balls and struck two sixes and eight fours Misbah had come to the crease after Younis who is also bowing out of international cricket after this match was trapped leg-before by West Indies captain Jason Holder for 18 inside the first hour of a bright sultry morning He should have departed without scoring but for another error behind the stumps by Dowrich Having put down Babar Azam off Bishoo the day before the wicketkeeper was inexplicably wrong-footed and failed to hold on to a low chance to the exasperation of Holder the suffering bowler For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Sandeep Ashar | Mumbai |

parking decks in excess of what is permitted On Friday The Indian Express had revealed that the city’s revised Development Plan brings a bonanza for such developers by permitting them to build such extra areas without paying a premium While luxury towers coming up in upscale localities such as Worli Lower Parel Breach Candy Currey Road and Nepeansea Road would have benefitted from the dole the civic exchequer would have lost crores as potential revenue The civic body has now dropped the controversial clause from the revised draft implying that the dole stands withdrawn for now Share This Article Related Article The Indian Express had on Friday reported that a section of town planners in the BMC had sought dropping of the provision and argued that the BMC could invite flak for favouring some builders The developers had been lobbying hard with the state and the civic administration for a reprieve on the grounds that the initial building permissions or IOD for building such extra areas were sanctioned before the premium rule was introduced on January 6 2012 Sources however said the rule made it clear that the developers who had already received IODs prior to January 6 2012 were exempted from premium payments for already sanctioned portions of the building but would come under the premium regime when they seek subsequent permissions for higher floors The state UDD headed by the CM had earlier permitted the exemption last May but was forced to clarify later that the civic chief would hold the discretion to charge full premium But since the UDD did not alter the

hope that we would actually get this house” Even as its overall plan of giving momentum to the decade-old Dharavi redevelopment plan is on shaky ground the state government on Tuesday in a low-profile function moved a handful of residents to the only building ready under the much-delayed Dharavi redevelopment plan The erstwhile Congress-NCP government had started the construction of this building before the 2014 polls to show some movement in the Rs 25000-crore project during its reign The Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) handed over keys to new 300-sqft homes to 255 families from the neighbouring Shatabdi Nagar slum The authority is in charge of redeveloping Sector 5 the easiest of Dharavi’s five sectors while the other four are to be revamped with private developers on a public-private partnership model Share This Article Related Article The authority gave possession of the new houses each built at a cost of about Rs 22 lakh with an old-fashioned ‘griha pravesh’ for every family a rangoli drawn in front of all flats and red ribbons to cut Every key handed out by MHADA was accompanied by sweets to celebrate the new beginning and officials

against MHADA’s decision of declaring them ineligible Of the 266 only 255 could take possession of their houses as seven were absent two are dead and another two had not completed formalities Chandrakant Dange joint chief officer of MHADA’s Mumbai board said “All the families who have taken possession will hand over their shanties to us within three days MHADA has also arranged for vehicles to shift their belongings to the new building” Soon after the authority hopes to demolish the entire slum and clear space for a new high-rise giving all ineligible residents an affidavit that
