Mercedes clinches fourth straight F1 constructors’ championship

Why it matters to you

Mercedes is shaping up to be one of the great Formula One dynasties. Mercedes-Benz clinched its fourth straight Formula One constructors’ championship at the 2017 United States Grand Prix[1], held at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. While rivals Ferrari and Red Bull Racing have put up more of a fight this year, Mercedes remains the dominant team in F1.

Formula One awards championships for both constructors (the teams) and drivers, and the drivers’ championship is still up for grabs as the season heads into its final three races. Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton extended his lead by winning in Austin, but his main rival, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, finished second, giving him enough points to stay in the fight. Hamilton started strong, setting a track record and taking pole position in qualifying.

But Vettel managed to pass the British driver shortly after the start of the race. Vettel’s challenge only lasted six laps, though, at which point Hamilton took the lead and held onto it. Vettel fell further down the field, but managed to claw his way back to second by the end of the race.

Controversy surrounded the third spot on the podium. Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen (who started in 16th place), passed Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen on the last lap to take third place, but the the move was deemed illegal and Verstappen was hit with a five-second penalty. That awarded third place to Raikkonen.

Race stewards claimed Verstappen drove off the track while making his move, a decision Red Bull disputes. The penalty has also attracted criticism from outside the team. F1 legend and Mercedes team advisor Niki Lauda called it “the worst I’ve ever seen” in an interview with Racer[2].

While the outcomes of individual races are always unpredictable, Mercedes was always the team to beat. The German automaker has held a major advantage since current rules requiring hybrid powertrains were introduced in 2014. Mercedes has won the constructors’ championship for the past three years in a row, and has monopolized the drivers’ championship as well.

Hamilton won it in 2014 and 2015, while Nico Rosberg won in 2016, and retired shortly after[3]. Mercedes hasn’t had as tight a stranglehold on the championship this season as it did in the past three. Vettel led the drivers’ championship for much of the season, and Red Bull has won two races.

More consistent performance by Hamilton and teammate Valtteri Bottas[4] allowed Mercedes to pull away from Ferrari and Red Bull in the constructors’ championship early on.

But Vettel could still win the drivers’ championship and break up the Mercedes monotony.

Dabur Amla hair oil – does it stop premature greying of hair …

Spotting your first few strands of grey hair can be really distressing. I almost panicked when I saw about 10 (maybe more) strands of grey hair almost 6 months ago on my scalp. That’s when I decided to try applying Dabur Amla hair oil.

I have never been satisfied with my hair. It’s too dry, frizzy and fine. The addition of grey hair to this list was too distressing for me, a 31-year-old.

Of course, it didn’t help them I grew even more stressed after looking at grey hair because stress can lead to greying of hair, hair loss and other conditions. Unlike some of my friends who have ’embraced’ the greys and somehow look glam with it, I haven’t been able to do so. I have never coloured my hair and I didn’t want to start doing it now, not so soon anyway.

So instead of going in for touch-ups or colouring or simply accepting this change, I decided to Google for quick, safe, home remedies of greying of hair. One of the first remedies for grey hair that came to my mind was amla – both topical application of amla hair oil and consumption of amla. Rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants, amla can give your hair volume and help your hair overcome nutritional deficiencies to reduce greying of hair [1].

Here are causes of premature greying of hair[1]. What Dabur Amla hair oil promisesThis hair oil claims to moisturise your scalp, prevents hair damage caused by chemicals, sunlight and pollution, control pre-mature greying of hair, gives you healthy hair and enhance hair growth to give you longer, stronger and thicker hair. How to use Dabur Amla hair oilI usually warm the oil a little, spread it on my palms and massage it into the scalp.

I use it on its own and sometimes with Bajaj Almond Drops hair oil[2] or any other oil. I leave it on overnight and wash it the next day. My experience with Dabur Amla hair oilThe first thing you notice is the colour–it’s dark green.

I haven’t tried making amla oil at home so I don’t know if this the natural colour of amla oil. The bottle does say it has permitted colours. The immediate next thing you notice when you open the bottle is the very strong smell.

Now, I do not mind the smell because 1) I don’t wear it outside my home 2) I am not very sensitive to smells; I don’t usually get headaches or any kind of irritation with strong smells. The smell is not exactly pleasant but not irritating either. It spreads easily all over the scalp because it has a very smooth, almost water-like consistency.

You need not mix it with other oils.You need only a little coin-sized quantity to cover your hair. It’s quite light. Your hair won’t weigh down with oiliness and it can easily be washed off with shampoo. (Read: Product Review of OGX Organix Repairing Awapuhi Ginger Shampoo[3]) I know it’s too early to notice if it has actually stopped greying of my hair.

I intend to continue using it with the hope that it will! I have heard of a lot of people claiming that this oil has made their black and delayed greying. My hair definitely became softer.

I don’t have dandruff but I sometimes have a dry flaky scalp. Whenever I use this, I feel like the oil cleanses my hair of the buildup of these flakes. ProsVery economically pricedCleanses the hairVery light on the scalp and hair

ConsVery strong smell that could be irritating to someIt doesn’t work that well for dry, frizzy hair Price: Rs 190 for 450 ml Image source: Dabur website
