  • Ricciardo deserved F1 penalty: Raikkonen

    One of Daniel Ricciardo's Formula One opponents believes the Australian should have been penalised for the cheeky move he made to grab fifth place in the Monaco Grand Prix. Ricciardo utilised his fresh tyres on Sunday to make a late and ambitious bid for the podium, diving down the inside of Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen to pip the Finn in the closing stages of the race won by German Nico Rosberg. When Raikkonen tried to defend his position, Ricciardo's front wheel made contact with the Ferrari's rear, sending him wide.

  • Uber drivers fined in Hungary

    The Hungarian tax authority fined Uber drivers in its first probe against the ride-sharing service which the economy ministry said Saturday "ignores passenger safety" and must be made to follow regulations. The taxmen used Uber services randomly and said they found several irregularities: drivers did not have tax numbers, nor did they give receipts after the ride, and they did not possess taxi licenses. The authorities vowed "to make the company operating Uber network -- which drains the budget and ignores passenger safety -- adhere to the rules," the ministry statement said, adding that the probe will continue.

  • Greece 'has no money' to meet IMF debt repayment

    Greece warned Sunday it has no money to repay the International Monetary Fund on time in June unless a deal is reached with its creditors, in a stark warning that the country could be just days away from defaulting. With the clock ticking down to four more debt instalments from June 5, Interior Minister Nikos Voutsis told Mega TV that the country has nothing left for the IMF in its coffers. Greece's radical-left government has been locked in negotiations with its creditors -- the IMF, the European Union and the European Central Bank -- for the past four months in a bid to unlock some 7.2 billion euros in bailout cash.

  • Angry Federer blasts French Open after security scare

    Roger Federer blasted French Open organisers Sunday after a fan breached tight security and raced on to court to grab a 'selfie' with the Swiss great. The 17-time Grand Slam winner had just completed a routine 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 win over Colombia's Alejandro Falla when he was shocked to see a young fan sprinting towards him on the showpiece Philippe Chatrier Court. It was particularly embarrassing as security at this year's French Open has been tightened following January's deadly Islamist attack on Paris-based satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

  • Next-generation plane engines take a LEAP towards delivery

    If there's one key selling point that aerospace giants Airbus and Boeing have both been using in marketing their new aircraft, it is fuel efficiency. It is in fact largely down to French company Safran and GE, whose joint venture CFM International is making the LEAP motors that will power most of the next-generation of the planes which will be the future workhorses of airlines. The promise of 15 to 20 percent fuel savings moved closer as LEAP engines made their first flight tests that are a key step for the Airbus320neo to enter service next year and Boeing's B737 MAX in 2017 as planned.
