Massa cleared for Hungary FP3 despite Friday hospital visit

Felipe Massa was taken to the hospital after Friday practice because he felt “unwell and dizzy”

Having not featured in an F1 race for the last three years, Williams is fully backing Scotsman Di Resta to do the business this weekend and fill the void left by Massa.

The Williams team said in a statement that the 36-year-old Massa went to the Formula One medical center and then Honvedkorhaz hospital on Friday for "precautionary tests" after feeling "unwell and dizzy" during the second practice session.

However, he continued to feel unwell during the session, and after posting only 12 laps during the session, decided with the team to withdraw from driving, with "a view to return to the race-track for the Belgian Grand Prix".

Di Resta, Williams' reserve driver, will therefore step in for the Brazilian driver and compete in qualifying.

U.S. imposes more sanctions on Iran in response to space launch
Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, on Friday denied Tehran had missiles created to carry nuclear warheads. The US had intelligence that the launch was coming and it was not a surprise, according to the official.

To compound this, di Resta came into the crucial session having only driven 10 laps in an F1 vehicle since the end of 2013, when he last raced in F1.

Di Resta will not get any practice in the vehicle, owing to Qualifying due to start at 13:00pm United Kingdom time. He was cleared to take part in Saturday's final session before qualifying but ended it early.

He has not driven the FW40 on track, although he does have some knowledge of F1 hybrid technology from driving the 2014 FW36 test vehicle used by Lance Stroll.

"You're very anxious. Nervous but very excited".

Harbaugh noncommittal on Ravens signing Kaepernick
If Harbaugh believes Kaepernick can help him win, general manager Ozzie Newsome will be alerted, and an offer would be proffered. In October, he finished a 24-16 loss to the Jets with no touchdowns, two interceptions and 56.8 percent of his passes completed.

"I haven't driven one of these cars for 3 and a half years apart from 10 laps I did in a 2014 vehicle and you get thrown into qualifying which is the deepest of all deep, jumping off a cliff and seeing how you can fight for survival".

"These cars are top of their game and it is like being back at home driving the best balanced auto you have ever driven".

The Brit though admitted the experience went better than he could have possibly hoped, but still expects to struggle on race day in Budapest. You are tuned in for a race weekend and then you don't race but he has made the right choice.

"I need to rest and prepare myself in the best way to come back even stronger in Spa".

WhatsApp is now used daily by a billion people worldwide
And one obvious reason behind such a massive amount of communication through WhatsApp is because it now supports 60 languages. Notably, this version of WhatsApp will be enabled by default on the devices that run the Android O Developer Preview.
