  • 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.

  • Rosberg revels in hat-trick after Hamilton pit stop howler

    Given his luck, Nico Rosberg should be excused if he headed to the Principality's casino Sunday night after one of Formula One's greatest tactical errors handed him a memorable and rare hat-trick of wins at the Monaco Grand Prix. Trailing his Mercedes team-mate and world champion Lewis Hamilton with 15 laps remaining, the 29-year-old German took full advantage when an accident prompted a Safety Car intervention that, in turn, led the team to call the Briton in for an unexpected and unnecessary pit-stop. Hamilton re-joined third, on new softer tyres, but was unable to use that performance advantage to pass second-placed Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari, let alone Rosberg who won by 4.4 seconds.
