Nico Rosberg is a worthy F1 World Champion, and a great ambassador for the sport

On his F1 debut at the Bahrain GP in 2006, Nico Rosberg set the fastest lap and seemed destined to follow in the footsteps of his father, 1982 World Champion Keke Rosberg. Yesterday that destiny was realised when, 34 years later, Nico became the 2016 World Champion.

The words destined and destiny have been chosen ironically. There was nothing fatalistic about Nico’s pursuit and ultimate achievement of his WDC. Quite the opposite, it has been an extremely hard slog for more than a decade, one that would have broken the spirit of many in the sport. It has required dedication, commitment and mental fortitude rarely seen. Continue reading “Nico Rosberg is a worthy F1 World Champion, and a great ambassador for the sport”

The Gable Tostee case is part of a broader problem of the law reflecting male standards

The Gable Tostee acquittal exposes a fundamental problem with Australia’s legal system: that its standards are built on a male view of the world.

Tostee could be found guilty of murder if Warriena Wright was so in fear of her life that she felt she had no choice but to climb over the balcony. This question is referenced in the context of what a “reasonable person” would do. However, references in the legal system to “reasonable person” are acutally references to a “reasonable man”. Most of them were actually labelled “reasonable man” originally, such as the “reasonable man on the Clapham omnibus” in tort law. They were set up decades – in some instances hundreds of years – ago when men controlled all facets of public life. The change to “reasonable person” was a nod to equality, but it was nothing more than altering the label; it did not actually address the standard itself by taking into account a female perspective.

Dear Telstra

Dear Telstra,

The business owner is currently overseas at the moment and uncontactable and he is the only person with authorisation on the account. On Thursday night I called Telstra to find out the procedure for dealing with these calls because I know from dealing with this once before that there is a way of doing this without the account holder.

Nico Rosberg likely to get penalty at British GP

During the 2014 F1 season the FIA began toying with a radio ban that would limit the information that teams could communicate to drivers during a race. This was to more accurately incorporate the sentiment that drivers should have to manage their own races, as reflected in Article 27.1 of the Sporting Regulations, which states that “the driver must drive the car alone and unaided”.

After tinkering with this for 18 months, a comprehensive ban was introduced for the 2016 F1 season. Teams have been given several races “grace period” to come to terms with the rules, during which time they have merely received warnings from race control. They were told that from the British GP onwards potential breaches would be referred to the stewards.
