Vettel uncertain before monaco: problems solved by spain?

Vettel uncertain before monaco: problems solved by spain?

Sebastian vettel made a detour to the monaco marina on his racing bike. In the formula 1 camp of the principality, the ferrari star took time for photos with his fans and signed autographs.

Before the sixth race of the season on sunday (15.10 o’clock), however, vettel is unsure whether his scuderia can show any progress. For most recently in spain, the 30-year-old had complained about a lack of speed, tire problems and a lack of reliability.

"Monaco is a very different track from barcelona. We understood where we went wrong in spain, but only time will tell if we have solved these problems," said vettel at the official press conference before the first practice laps on thursday.

“The characters have changed”

Before the 18. Before the 18th matchday in the coburg district league, the gap between the four aspirants for promotion and the rest of the league continues to widen. But also the SV ketschendorf is already lagging behind a bit. On sunday, the top 4 are heavy favorites and will probably finally settle the title race among themselves, while the league fifth, currently the coburg locals, permanently to the first relegation place (13. Rank) will aim.
SV heilgersdorf is also a team that is placed in the broad midfield. Injured goalkeeper tobias schramm said after the win in wildenheid: "we’re looking ahead now." But presumably this statement was made in the "third half" rather jokingly meant. SVH coach detlef meibner, on the other hand, talks in all seriousness in the tageblatt about his ambitions.

Mr. Meibner, after 17 games, SV heilgersdorf is in 6th place with 24 points. In view of the preseason certainly very satisfactory, or?
Detlef meibner: in any case, it’s an improvement, because before christmas last year, with ten points from 18 games, we were already standing with one foot in the district league. But this year, too, it can quickly go backwards again, so the ranking is secondary at the moment.

The injured SVH-goalgetter tobias schramm declared confidently after the victory in wildenheid that his team is now looking ahead in the standings. Share this opinion?
It’s a great league, in which the fifth-placed team in the table is not far away from the relegation zone. In this respect, looking ahead is a bit exaggerated, but of course we are striving to achieve the best possible position at the end of the season. Unfortunately, we do not know what will happen to tobias schramm himself. He is currently being treated for his cartilage damage and I hope that he will return to action after the winter. "Chocolate" is by no means replaceable, and he was in the preseason with his goals in the relegation of the guarantor for the class preservation.

Spd sees red-red-green as option for 2017

Spd sees red-red-green as option for 2017

On the eve of the federal party conference in leipzig, which begins on thursday, the executive board decided that in future no coalitions would be ruled out before federal elections, with the exception of those of right-wing populist or extremist parties. SPD secretary general andrea nahles said she was counting on broad approval from the roughly 600 delegates.

The party and parliamentary group leaders were at pains to make it clear that they would guarantee the union’s loyalty in the event of a grand coalition; a red-red-green coalition including the left-wing party would only be an option for the 2017 parliamentary elections. Before the elections in september, the SPD had ruled out the red-red-green option, but together they had a slim majority in the bundestag.

One does not look for an emergency exit from the black-red negotiations, said SPD faction vice hubertus heil on wednesday. He still does not consider the left-wing party to be capable of forming a coalition at the federal level. Schleswig-holstein’s SPD minister president torsten albig emphasized that the commitment to the left definitely applies to the time after this legislative period. But: "we already said immediately after the election that a cut-off would be the last time."

Union faction vice-president for truck toll on all roads

Union faction vice-president for truck toll on all roads

Vice chairman of the CDU/CSU caucus andreas jung (CDU) proposes a toll on trucks to improve climate protection. "I am in favor of a toll on trucks weighing more than 3.5 tons and on all roads, which would leave the trades out of the equation," jung told the frankfurter allgemeine zeitung ("FAZ"/saturday).

The additional federal funds had to go to rail freight transport. "An agreement should be reached with the states and municipalities that they will use their revenues to support public transport."

The newspaper wrote that jung wants such a toll on state and municipal roads. Up to now, tolls for trucks with a gross vehicle weight of 7.5 tons or more have been compulsory on all federal highways and autobahns, a total of 52.000 kilometers of road.

Udo schonfelder applies for european championship title

Udo schonfelder applies for european championship title

City councillor manfred hummer (freie wahler) buried radio bamberg’s proposal to show the german national team’s soccer matches in connection with the european championship on a big screen in the paradeplatz. As two years ago, the event site is to be surrounded by a construction fence that has to be taken down again after the end of the event. Snack and bar stands provide for the physical well-being.
Hummer saw problems only in terms of noise, because this work, according to the organizer, drags on until 2 a.M. Complaints from residents of paradeplatz are inevitable.
Colleague thomas werner (CSU) recalled that the last public viewing two years ago had incurred internal administrative costs of 10,000 euros. They are not mentioned anywhere this time. Karl-heinz fleckenstein blows the same horn. In times when the voluntary services of the associations were reduced, actions in which money was earned commercially could not be supported with tax funds. "We have nothing to give away, fleckenstein clarified.
CSU faction leader udo schonfelder made a precautionary motion that germany become european soccer champion. However, the financial risk of the public viewing must remain with the organizer. Stefan schick (CSU) also saw it that way. The advertising community was critical of the event. However, the board had decided to tolerate it.
That was not enough for manfred mauser (F). He spoke out against public viewing. He cited the safety aspect as the reason for this. Damage to property in the surrounding area, especially during the ongoing tree removal on the parade ground, cannot be ruled out.
Sabine dittrich (FGL) could see no advantage at all in public viewing. So she too rejected the proposal for a joint fubball event at the parade square. Albert dorn (SPD) also raised fundamental concerns. Since he had already voted against it two years ago, he saw no reason to change his mind now. Annette prechtel (FGL) affirmed: "this event is not suitable to revitalize the city center."
SPD faction chairman reinhold otzelberger, on the other hand, is a different story. He made sure that the organizer has to pay a standing fee like any other user of a public flat and demanded that all services provided by the city for this event be invoiced. This was stated in the draft resolution. Against six votes, the committee approved the proposal.
