MARINA BAY, Singapore -- Mercedes boss Toto Wolff said qualifying for the Singapore Grand Prix has been a personal highlight after his team overcame the issues it faced at the same circuit 12 months ago. http://www.bengalsrookiestore.com/Bengals-Pat-Sims-Jersey/ .Nico Rosberg took pole position by over 0.5s from Red Bulls Daniel Ricciardo on Saturday -- a significant turnaround after Mercedes qualified 1.4s off pole last year. Wolff said the team had identified last years Singapore issue at the following race in Japan but did not know for certain if they had solved it until qualifying on Saturday.First of all, you hear often sentences from the drivers or management, saying they are really thankful of the job the team did, Wolff said. I must say, and we have just had the debrief, I am so proud of the job the engineers have done around really finding out about the root causes of last years performance - and the severity of our lack of performance last year opened up new ways of thinking.I remember last year after the race, when we had the situation of crisis, we discussed it and we wanted to find out [the cause] and there was a worry it would maybe drag on into Suzuka and the following races. We kept our heads down and a small designated group looked at the data and then parked the topic and concentrated on Suzuka and this is now the proof today that we have understood where we had the weakness of the car and I think we had quite some learning for the other tracks throughout the 2016 season that we benefitted from Singapore last year. So sometimes those difficult moments give you the possibility of really driving from there on.This is actually my personal highlight today that we have a car that is performing well. Obviously it is only Saturday and we havent started the race, we havent won it yet and tomorrow is going to be a totally different challenge. But having got the car where it is today I must really say the team has done a great job.Wolff was still not willing to go into specifics about the issue, but said it was related to the bumpy nature of the Singapore circuit.The interaction of the aero with the mechanical set-up on a particular circuit like Singapore, a street circuit and riding the kerbs, and a bumpy circuit, gave us a challenge in the way our car has been designed. Our car overall is pretty balanced throughout the season, on all race tracks and we struggled on a twisty road circuit like Singapore.You could have said this is a particular circuit that is not suited to our car and that is how it is, but we tried to find out how we can optimise our car for this particular circuit. http://www.bengalsrookiestore.com/Bengals-Vontaze-Burfict-Jersey/ . The news was first reported on Gonzalezs Twitter account and confirmed by the Rockies. Gonzalez has a six-week window before position players have their first workout at spring training in Arizona. http://www.bengalsrookiestore.com/Bengals-Tyler-Kroft-Jersey/ .

Rashid took 4-114 to help bowl India out for 488, giving England a 49-run first-innings lead, and said his consistency is what pleased him most.Its probably my best Test performance for England, said Rashid. I just tried today to stay calm, composed and relaxed, and deliver my skills. It was the most consistent Ive bowled. I felt confident, and it came out of the hand nicely. Rashid dismissed Virat Kohli hit wicket for 40 on day four of the first Test Ive been working hard in the nets with Saqlain Mushtaq. He is not trying to do anything technical with me - just getting me more relaxed and focused.If it comes out well, or even if it doesnt, at least youve got the right mindset, and thankfully it worked today.England stretched their advantage further as Haseeb Hameed - who hit a Test fifty on debut - and Alastair Cook shared in a 114-run stand to see the tourists 163 runs ahead by stumps. Nasser Hussain was hugely impressed with the performance of 19-year-old debutant Haseeb Hameed Rashid praised 19-year-old Hameeds efforts, and harbours hopes that England can force through an unlikely victory on day five. http://www.bengalsrookiestore.com/Bengals-Clark-Harris-Jersey/. To get that partnership at the end was very important, added Rashid. Were in a great position now, and hopefully we can come back tomorrow and put a few more runs on the board.Hameed is a quiet boy, but he works very hard on his game in the nets. He is very organised and has a good temperament - he showed that today.
