He is now 33 points clear of team-mate Hamilton in the driver’s standing and is only required to finish second or better for the remaining four races to take his first driver’s championship.

Apple introduced its unique wireless “AirPods” to go with the iPhone to compensate the fact it does not feature a jack. The iPhone is expected to have a custom designed Bluetooth chip for the wireless communication to be made possible. This Bluetooth like chip is also expected to use less battery. This could be considered as bonus points for Apple, if you take into consideration the poor battery life of an Apple. The downfall to the “AirPod” is that it has been suggested Apple will not include them with the phone. Instead, they will sell them as an additional accessory.

iPhone 7 features:

  • Available in two sizes; 4.7 inches and 5.5 inch
  • Water and Dust resistant
  • Dual lense camera
  • Airbuds connected through the charging port

F1 has a New Teen Driver- Esteban Ocon

Formula1 Esteban Ocon

While the 2016 Formula One season may be on its summer break, things are still heating up. Formula One is making headlines with a driver line change at the Manor team and the CVC shareholders are looking for a buyout.

Driver Change at Manor Racing

Renault’s reserve driver Esteban Ocon has replaced Rio Haryanto at the Manor Racing Team. The 19-year old replaced Haryanto, who was signed at the end of the 2015 season but has since lacked secure financial backing.

Haryanto’s main sponsors were Pertamina, a state-owned Indonesian oil company, and the Indonesian Government. Both sponsors managed to finance sufficient funds for Haryanto to race the first half of the season but were struggling to raise sufficient funds to keep the driver going.

Ocon will make his debut at the Belgian Grand Prix on August 28, 2016, when the season resumes for the second half of the year. Haryanto will take on the reserve role at the team.

Dave Ryan, Race Director said that they are confident when Esteban makes his debut in Spa, they will have a very potent line-up with the chance to fight with immediate competitors for the rest of the season.

CVC Capital Partners Looking for a Buyout

In other news, CVC Capital Partners who paid $2 Billion in 2006 to buy Formula One is looking to exit the investment. At the time of the purchase, it was not the greatest for the firm, however, the deal has turned out to be rather profitable.

It has been suggested that CVC Capital Partners has made about $4.5 Billion on its initial stake. This has turned out to be a 450% return. Should the sale go through within weeks, CVC who has 35% of the stake could possibly walk away with a return of eight times its original investment.
