  • Rosberg fastest in practise, Hamilton summoned by stewards

    By Abhishek Takle HOCKENHEIM, Germany (Reuters) - Nico Rosberg completed a clean sweep of practise for his home German Formula One Grand Prix by topping the timesheets ahead of Mercedes team mate Lewis Hamilton in Saturday’s final session. Hamilton, who set a time just 0.057 seconds slower than Rosberg’s best of one minute 15.783, was summoned to see the stewards for being released from his garage in an unsafe manner. Daniel Ricciardo went third for Red Bull with a late flier that put him less than a tenth behind the Mercedes pair, indicating that the German team may have more of a fight on their hands in Saturday’s qualifying than the opening day of practise had suggested.

  • Scotland needs £10billion reserve to start own currency says pro-independence think-tank

    GETTY The astonishing admission is yet another huge body-blow to Nicola Sturgeon's attempts to break away from the UK. If the country ever voted to become independent the Scottish Government would need to find the huge sum in order to hold in a foreign reserve fund, according to the study by pro-independence group, Common Weal. Researchers claim £10 billion would be a "significant sum" to raise but "not an insurmountable one", suggesting Scotland could acquire a share of the UK's foreign reserve as part of any separation agreement. However, critics have said the introduction of a separate currency would be "disastrous" for the Scottish economy and have even branded the suggestion "totally unrealistic".
