Car 2 MARK WEBBER, Finish Position: 4th, Start Position: 6th
"Trying to get the balance right for the whole race was very tricky. In the end, fourth was not too bad; it wasn't the maximum, but it's very tight between the teams at the front. At some points of the race, I saw P13/ P14 on the board, so I have to be satisfied with fourth place. I made a few mistakes running wide trying to push onto the back straight, it's hard there as you can get onto the marbles. I think the strategy was good, but it's always a gamble with the three stop, as to what traffic there might be. Congratulations to Nico, he deserves the victory, and also to Mercedes. For me it's three fourths on the bounce now, it's good points and we leave here reasonably satisfied, but we need to keep boxing and keep improving."
Sendai residents have begun stringing together yellow handkerchiefs in a coastal area hit by the March 2011 tsunami in a symbolic expression of their hopes for reconstruction of their hometown from the disaster.
Each of the handkerchiefs, placed at sites where tsunami-caused debris has been cleared, bears printed messages or drawings transferred from those sent originally to the northeastern city's Arahama district from well-wishers across the country and overseas.
One year after their lives were torn apart by Japan's devastating earthquake and tsunami, players from Ishinomaki Technical High School are preparing to compete on one of the biggest stages in Japanese baseball.
When the magnitude-9.0 earthquake hit on March 11, manager Yoshitsugu Matsumoto was leading his team in a routine practice at the school's baseball field. Earthquakes are all too common in Japan but like everyone who experienced that terrible day, Matsumoto knew this one was different.
