More Top NewsFans rejoice In a a few hours from now the 2017 Formula 1 season will be underway and yes there’s plenty to look forward to Here’s a quick round-up of the top eight things to watch out for when the five lights illuminate at the Australian Grand Prix on Sunday Also if you’re tuning into the sport after a hiatus this read should also bring you up to speed with this season pun unintended Formula One drivers (from left) McLaren’s Fernando Alonso Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel AFP 1 Lewis Hamilton in attack mode Thanks to his off-track antics he is the quintessential bad boy of Formula 1 But on track Hamilton is next to unstoppable Hamilton will certainly be looking to increase his tally of three World Championships (and match Sebastian Vettel) while avenging last season’s loss Assuming that the Mercedes cars retain their supremacy could this be his easiest title victory ever Or will he get bored and do ‘a Nico Rosberg’ — that is leave the sport unceremoniously David Coulthard thinks he could leave mid-season Of course this seems highly improbable as I’m guessing Hamilton the racer will always trump Hamilton the musician/actor/party animal 2 Valtteri Bottas must prove himself For once all eyes will not be on the Mercedes of Hamilton but the ‘other’ Mercedes of Bottas A few months ago we could not have imagined Bottas in a Mercedes but the F1 circus can spring surprises sometimes The pressure to perform is high on Bottas and he simply does not have the luxury of time He only has a one year contract with Mercedes and the team has given him only four races to prove himself Having Hamilton as a teammate is only going to complicate the situation — this is a Hamilton who was denied the title last year and is probably hungrier than ever If Mercedes continue to dominate in 2017 it becomes even more crucial for Bottas to challenge Lewis — and save fans from being bored out of their minds 3 Ferrari back in form After a rough patch Ferrari finally seem to have gotten their act together For a change they have made less noise off-track (read: endless PR stories) and instead focused on their on-track pace After a winless season in 2016 this could well be a make-or-break year for the team They’ve shelled out hundreds of millions and it looks to be paying off — the car has looked flawless all through pre-season testing and closer to Mercedes than ever before The big question is whether Vettel or Kimi Raikkonen will be close enough to challenge for wins and the championship 4 McLaren-Honda’s troubles This team’s sorrows never seem to end For the third year in a row Honda have failed to deliver for McLaren Eleven laps is the maximum distance they managed in one go during pre-season testing (no kidding) Worse they are about 10000 kilometres behind Mercedes in testing data Seems like they’ve taken a step backwards while others have moved forward despite Honda attempting to copy Mercedes’ design philosophy Amid this all we are wondering who will leave first Honda or Fernando Alonso There has also been speculation about McLaren making a mid-season shift back to Mercedes power (if Mclaren do that they lose all the points accrued in the season and start over) 5 All eyes on Max Verstappen If there was one man who set 2016 on fire it was Verstappen Pulling off some seemingly impossible moves he was the rookie everyone on the grid feared Verstappen has lived up to all the hype surrounding him (in fact he’s far outdone expectations) but will he continue to rise His rivalry against Daniel Ricciardo is also evenly matched – we’ll be eager to see which of the ultra talented Red Bull Racing drivers triumphs 6 The exciting mid-field battle The mid-field is an exciting space to watch this season with the delicate pink car of Force India taking on Williams Renault Haas Torro Rosso and Haas All these teams will be eyeing that coveted fourth place in the Constructors Championship (and the money that goes along with it) We’ll be looking out for Sergio Perez (can he build on last season’s success) and Esteban Ocon (will he be the rookie of the season) at Force India Expect some great drives from Carlos Sainz and Daniil Kvyat — one is hoping for a promotion and then other hoping that this season isn’t his last Lance Stroll the rookie at Williams has given the team some scary moments in testing Hopefully he won’t land up being tagged the ‘Pastor Maldonado’ of 2017 7 F1’s new owners This is the first complete season with the sport’s new owners Liberty Media at the helm They’ve already made meaningful changes to the sport (such as relaxing social media usage) so we are keen to keen what else they have lined up The good news for now is that they are keen to bring back the iconic venues in Europe and re-look at DRS 8 Last but not the least the ‘new’ 2017 cars Thanks to the new regulations the 2017 cars promise to be bigger meaner and yes faster The cars will also make drivers work harder ensuring that driver fitness could be far more critical than in previous seasons Given the Mercedes dominance in the past several seasons I am excited to see how the change in regulations could shake up the order (history tells us that rule changes have usually shaken up the prevailing pecking order) Also if you want to know more about this

News In as many as five different incidents since July last year 17 juveniles lodged at the Jawaharlal Nehru Udyog Kendra Observation Home in Yerawada for various offences including serious ones have disappeared without a trace and officials are clueless about their whereabouts The primary reason say officials could be lack of security personnel at the observation home The security was voluntarily provided by Pune city police but the same was suddenly discontinued The Jawaharlal Nehru Udyog Kendra which was earlier a shelter home for destitute children was converted into an observation home for juveniles-in-conflict-with-law in 2009 At any given time 35 to 50 minors arrested for offences registered in Pune city and Pune rural jurisdiction are lodged at the observation home Share This Article Related Article The observation home falls under the Women and Child Development Department of the state government According to staffers at the observation home there is no government decision at present on providing police security to observation homes across the state Sharad Kurhade superintendent of the observation home said “At present our staffers working as caretakers double as security guards They have no formal training and can be easily overpowered by the boys It is also important to point that the police presence is a deterrent for the boys who want to escape” In 2012 two minors detained by the state’s Anti-Terrorism Squad under sections of stringent Unlawful Activities Prevention Act were lodged in the observation home and as per the order of the Juvenile Justice Board security of five constables was provided to the observation home said Kurhade “Even after that Pune police continued to provide us security despite there being no such government order But because they needed their personnel the number of constables allotted to us kept reducing In 2012 there were five constables In 2013 the number was down to three and in the first half of 2014 there were only two constables who used to do two 12-hour shifts Around July they were taken off duty from here as they were needed for a bandobast After that they never joined back” Officials at the observation home say there have been communications at the government department level on the security issue as all the observation homes in the state remain without any proper security “If not police there should be at least some provision for deploying trained personnel to guard the facility” When contacted Arvind Chavaria deputy commissioner of police (Headquarters-II) said “We would certainly look into the matter If a solution can be worked out we would certainly do that” The facility also faces another problem In its premises there is an old room which touches the protective wall from inside The roof of this room has been used by boys to climb up the wall and jump outside The authorities at the observation home have repeatedly told the Public Works Department to demolish the roof or increase the height of the wall in part but the PWD has not taken any action to date say officials For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | Mumbai |

announced that henceforth it would publicly auction such stocks A miffed Food and Civil Supplies Minister Girish Bapat who bore the brunt of NCP’s allegations said he would take legal action against NCP for making these allegations “Instead of returning the seized pulses based on an undertaking the state will publicly auction the seized pulses The total seized stocks are approximately 13000 tonnes The decision will help lower the price of pulses in the state” the state government said in a release Share This Article Related Article On Thursday the NCP alleged that a scam related to seized stocks of pulses was under way in the state and the food and civil supplies minister was involved in it NCP’s Nawab Malik also alleged that the government had returned the seized dal to hoarders to sell it to consumers at Rs 200 per kg Bapat termed the allegations as ‘baseless’ “Since my name has been specifically mentioned I will initiate legal action” he said In an attempt to control the spiralling pulse prices the state had conducted raids and seized tur dal from hoarders The limiting stock per establishment was pegged at 3500 quintals and anyone found having stock greater than that limit had to face seizure of goods The Food and Civil Supplies Department had earlier this month issued an order stating that traders would be given back the stock of tur dal on

move that will give the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) more teeth in its fight against corruption the facility to test phone call recordings and confirm the identity of the speakers has been started at all the six centres of the state Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) — including Mumbai Pune Nagpur Aurangabad Nashik and Amravati — since August 1 The ACB asks complainants to record a call in which they are being asked to pay bribes and then uses these call recordings as evidence to prosecute corrupt officials This takes place after the agency gets a positive report from the FSL confirming the identity of the two people — the complainant and person demanding a bribe — talking on the phone Share This Article Related Article To do that the FSL takes separate voice samples of the accused and the complainant and checks it with the voice samples on the phone call submitted to them by the ACB in which the demand for a bribe is made The FSL also has to confirm that the recording is not spliced in any part But getting this FSL report had become a major hurdle for the ACB as the Tape Authentication and Speaker Identification (TASI) facility that conducts these tests was only available at the Mumbai FSL The Mumbai centre too had been plagued by staff shortage in the recent past As a result it took months to get a report confirming the veracity of the audio tape thereby adversely affecting the nature of evidence the ACB could produce in the court It also caused inordinate delays in filing chargesheets The ACB as well as the state FSL had for the past few years informing the state home ministry about the need to take measures to ensure that the facility is expanded across the state something that finally came through this year A senior FSL official requesting anonymity said that since August 1 the TASI facility has been started at the other five centres at Pune Nagpur Aurangabad Nashik and Amravati As a result the ACB cases that require call recording tests can be sent to the local FSL centre instead of being sent to Mumbai “Earlier even if there was a trap at Nagpur the official had to physically come to the Mumbai FSL to hand over the tape recording as such evidence cannot be sent by post This was a time-consuming affair that also caused a lot of delays” the official said The official added that soon after Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis took charge they informed him about the need to start that facility at all centres as the Mumbai unit was overburdened with over 2000 such cases pending Finally a formal proposal was made nearly six months ago and after approval the facility became operational from August 1 “In addition to accepting new cases that would fall under their jurisdiction these centres would divide among themselves and clear the backlog of nearly 1500 cases still pending with the Mumbai FSL We hope to get with them within five to six months Once the backlog is cleared we hope to send the reports to the ACB in a month’s time” the official said Admitting that the new centres will be of “considerable help” Praveen Dixit Director General ACB said: “The infrastructure is in place at these centres and the training has started This would come as a big help as getting the reports quicker will help us in making a strong case against accused There was a pendency of nearly 1800-2000 cases till now But we are hopeful of getting reports sooner now” For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Related NewsGeorgetown (Guyana): West Indies chief selector Clive Lloyd has told veteran batsman Shiv Chanderpaul that he was omitted from the Caribbean squad which will play against Australia because of declining form In a letter to Chanderpaul Lloyd said the decision was made after new head coach Phil Simmons and the selectors reviewed his statistics from the last six Test matches Chanderpaul’s exclusion from the Windies squad has sparked a major debate with many criticising the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) selection panel reports CMC File picture of Shivnarine Chanderpaul Reuters “The coach and selectors have studied your stats from the last six Tests to date three against South Africa and three against England You batted 11 innings and had an aggregate of 183 runs at an average of 1664” said Lloyd’s letter to the Guyanese batsman who boasts of 11867 runs at an average of 51 with 30 Test centuries “In determining the squad the selectors have decided to move on with younger players for the future I therefore regret to inform you that the coach and selectors have decided to omit you from the squad for that series” Chanderpaul averaged 48 when New Zealand toured the Caribbean for three Tests last year and then plundered 270 runs in two Tests against Bangladesh last September without being dismissed However his poor form lately has prompted selectors to overlook him saying they did not think it fitting to pick him simply to offer him a farewell series Lloyd a former West Indies captain told Chanderpaul he was forced to write to him after several attempts to reach him following his May 4 meeting with Simmons proved futile “I tried to contact you on several occasions but you had already left for Guyana I rang your home telephone number in Guyana and left my details with a male member of the house requesting that you contact me which he promised to do” Lloyd wrote in his letter to the 40-year-old “To date you have not returned my calls and it is rather unfortunate as I did want to have the opportunity to have a discussion with you prior to writing this letter to you” In his letter Lloyd described Chanderpaul as a “great player for the West Indies” who has given “excellent service to the game and to West Indies supporters We hope that your skills will be utilised in the future and we wish you all the very best" “You have been a tower of strength to West Indies cricket and you will be remembered for being a true icon who has epitomised everything that
