Formula One: Lewis Hamilton won Spanish Grand Prix


Sebastian Vettel shielded Ferrari’s Spanish Grand Prix scheme on Sunday after a second pitstop dropped the Formula One title challenger to 4th place and 17 points adrift of Mercedes rival Lewis Hamilton. Daniel Ricciardo ranked 5th in the Spanish Grand Prix, recuperating from a mid-race spin in a race he labelled “pretty boring”. However Valtteri Bottas could manage 2nd position and Max Verstappen came 3rd position.




Sebastian Vettel has called on Ferrari to address their problems from Spain in a stark assessment of the Scuderia’s unexpected slump in form in Barcelona. Ricciardo finished in fifth place in Sunday’s Spanish grand prix, avoiding the third corner mayhem behind him which eliminated three rivals, but was unable to match the speed of Mercedes or even his team mate Max Verstappen, without clean air.


Hamilton was never challenged on the way to his 41st win from pole position, surpassing a record he shared with seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher. Lewis Hamilton won in a commanding Mercedes one-two on Sunday to stretch his Formula One lead over Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, who finished fourth, to 17 points.


Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes back in business but has F1 2018 turned? Mercedes’ return to form in Spain leaves Ferrari with problems to solve – but Red Bull could be the favourites for Monaco.

MIFT research on carbon Fiber & Textile


New innovations and inventions are flooding news and social media. Do you know latest innovation in textile sector? Yes, in textile and fashion field. This field does not get enough exposure like Google Driver less Car, Amazon Drone Delivery System or Water on Mars. But in textile field also lots of innovation is happening and it will change future of fashion. 3D Printing, Smart fiber, e-textile and intelligent clothing are just few names. 


MIFT Carbon fiber filament yarns are used in several processing techniques: the direct uses are for prepregging, filament winding, pultrusion, weaving, braiding, etc. MIFT is working to reduce Manufacturing Cost. Significant amounts of energy are used to achieve the high temperatures required in the production process used to create carbon fiber. This contributes to a relatively high cost of carbon when compared to other materials.


Also color is a constraint as Carbon-based fabrics can be more difficult and costly to dye. Since the carbon is “wrapped” in other FR fibers, there are limitations to the color carbon fibers can achieve through the dyeing process.


MIFT is researching innovative Garment Cutting process. The characteristics of carbon make garment cutting more difficult than with other fabrics. This results in more mistakes, more error and more waste during the manufacturing process than with other fabrics used in garment production.


MIFT has observed Traditional Sewing Techniques usually don’t work with cFiber. Equipment that is used to sew garments is not made for carbon-based fibers. Carbon has the tendency to wear through equipment much faster, dulling the needle and contributing to other difficulties in the sewing process.
