Hamilton rains on Vettel title parade in Texas

first_img0Shares0000AUSTIN, Texas, November 18 – Lewis Hamilton upset Sebastian Vettel’s hopes of clinching the drivers world championship in his 100th race on Sunday when he produced a dazzling drive for McLaren to win a thrilling United States Grand Prix.For Vettel, finishing second from pole was a personal disappointment, but not enough to prevent his Red Bull team from winning the constructors title for the third successive season. Fernando Alonso of Ferrari finished third after starting seventh on the grid — thanks to his team’s pragmatic decision to break the gearbox seal on teammate Felipe Massa’s car.That podium finish ensured that the title battle will go down to the wire at next weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix in Sao Paulo.Vettel goes to Interlagos with a lead of 13 points. Vettel has 273 points and Alonso 260.Hamilton, who started second on the grid, made the most of his superior outright speed to pass Vettel on lap 42 of the 56-laps race and claim the 21st victory of his career.The 27-year-old Briton, who leaves McLaren for Mercedes next year, was intent on delivering another win for the team before his departure and did so with elan as he seized his fourth win this year.Massa, who was demoted five places to 11th on the grid because of Ferrari’s strategic move which elevated Alonso one place to the clean part of the grid, finished a superb fourth ahead of Jenson Button in the second McLaren.Kimi Raikkonen, winner of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix two weeks ago, came home sixth ahead of Lotus team-mate Romain Grosjean, Nico Hulkenberg of Force India, Pastor Maldonado and his Williams team-mate Bruno Senna.LEADING RESULTS1.

The plan would more than double the number of water testing sites fromthe U.S.-Mexico border to Coronado.County environmental health officials would also test south bay water quality more often with more efficient testing methods.According to Cox’s office, improved water testing methods at each site could take as few as 26 hours, while current testing can take up to four days.“This proposal will continue the 2018 enhanced program year-round and increase the number of sampling locations from four to a total of nine different locations,” Cox said.Polluted flows from the Tijuana River necessitate frequent testing, especially after a storm. County environmental health officials have closed beach access from Border Field State Park to Coronado multiple times since late November due to contaminated runoff from the river.The closures are only lifted after water testing determines that it is safe to come in contact with.“Thanks to the past increase in getting testing at the border, right at Border Field, our suspicions about massive pollution at the border being discharged just south of the border … have been confirmed,” said Imperial Beach Mayor Serge Dedina. “We see massive amounts of pollution at Border Field that’s coming across the border and that’s a concern to us.”Cox’s office expects the proposal to be discussed when the Board of Supervisors drafts the county budget in April and May. Once the budget is approved with funding for the new test sites, county environmental health officials would be able to expand testing.
