Nico Rosberg wins F1 title as Lewis Hamilton wins in Abu Dhabi

Nico Rosberg won his first Formula 1 world title despite Lewis Hamilton disobeying Mercedes orders not to back his team-mate into rivals.
Hamilton won the Abu Dhabi GP driving slowly in an attempt to bring other drivers into the battle, knowing he needed Rosberg to finish below third.
Hamilton was repeatedly told to speed up but told the team: "Let us race."
Rosberg came under pressure from Sebastian Vettel but held off the Ferrari driver to finish second.

Relief: Rosberg has been racing in Formula 1 for a decade before taking his first title

Tesla's Solar Roof Almost Ready for Distribution, How Much Will It Cost?

Billionaire and Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently launched the new Tesla Solar Roofs using a 'Desperate Housewives' set as a model house. The new Tesla roofs are equipped with solar panels are not just designed to harness solar power and store them in Power Wall, but the new solar roof is also designed to replace existing roofs.

The innovative solar roofs are said to be stronger than traditional roofing system. The solar panels are built in within the roofing panels so that the roofing itself will serve as the solar panels and vice versa. During the launch, Powerwall 2 and Powerpack 2 were also unveiled. The solar roofs will directly work with Tesla's home-based Powerwall.

Although it is not available on the market yet, it is looking good for Tesla as a lot of manufacturers and industry players are praising the new building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) solar roofs. This is the reason why a lot of industry players and the consumers as well are looking out for the would-be price point of Tesla's innovative solar roofs.

Typical solar shingles are already expensive, to begin with like CertainTeed, Suntegra and Atlanis. This is due to the high cost of materials and installation cost. But Musk argued during the launch that in the long run, installing solar roofs would be beneficial environmentally and economically.
The solar roofs are composed of a 6-inch solar cell. The economical advantage can be calculated depending on how powerful the solar cells and the kilowatt-generating power or solar cells on the roof combined.

Tesla's solar roofs are also designed to replace the typical type of roofing materials. On the onset, it will be of course, a bit more expensive than the regular ones especially if the home owner will choose to replace the whole roofing system with its solar counterpart. But Musk had also given that a thought. The Tesla CEO said anyone could choose only parts of their roofs to be replaced with the ones with solar cells and still keep some of the typical roofing materials. This is in respect to existing homes and the owner's aesthetic preferences.

In an educated guess, Brian Cinnamon of Green Tech Media expects that the Tesla solar roof to cost about $15,000 for a set that is capable of producing 9,000 kilowatt-hours per year.

But until the solar roofs roll out in the market, no one can tell for sure how much will the solar roof cost. Tesla's acquision of SolarCity paved the way for the production of Solar Roofs that is considered an integral part of Musk's environmental agenda mentioned in his 'Tesla Master Plan Part 2'.

Top 10 Quietest Tires of 2016

Tires are manufactured according to specific standards in order to facilitate driving in any type of weather on almost any type of surface. Not many tires, unfortunately, are supposed to provide a quiet driving experience because there isn’t an industry standard for such a thing to begin with.

Many people, however, prefer to do their driving as quietly as possible and understandably so. If you’re one of those people, you’re probably wondering just how much of a difference quiet tires can make and how would you go about getting some?

This is a list of the ten quietest tires in the world right now, tires that are guaranteed to bring a bit of serenity to your driving experience without taking anything away from their adherence and durability.

Goodyear Fortera HL Radial Tire

The Fortera HL isn’t exactly designed to be quiet, but it is nevertheless. This being said, you shouldn’t expect it to retain its quiet nature when driving at considerable speed, but you should expect a smooth ride otherwise. It is also a very durable tire, coming with a 60,000 miles warranty and a speed rating of T-118 MPH. Also, it has a serrated black stripe and a load index of 107.

General AltiMAX RT All-Season Tire

Thanks to its acoustic modulations sound technology (AMST), the AltiMAX RT is quiet than your average tire by quite a bit. Combined with its reactive contour technology, this makes the AltiMAX not only quiet but responsive at the same time

Goodyear Wrangler ArmorTrac Radial Tire

Goodyear is known for making high-quality tires and it was only natural for some of them to be quiet as well. This being said, do not expect the Wrangler ArmorTrac to be as quiet as tires that were specifically designed this way. You can, however, rely on the Wrangler ArmorTrac to be a lot quieter than most tires for pickup trucks / light trucks being sold nowadays.

Bridgestone Dueler H/T 684 II All-Season Radial Tire

This all-season tire for SUV’s, light trucks, and crossovers is designed to provide outstanding wet weather traction while being extremely quiet at the same time. This doesn’t mean that it isn’t quiet most of the time, because it is. It just means that due to its rounded casting profile and specially designed notches, these tires will allow you to experience a pretty smooth and quiet ride in bad weather.

Dunlop Grandtrek AT20 All-Season Tire

Made with dimensionally stable polyester that ensures its uniformity, this particular type of tire is a lot smoother that other tires in its class. It features a VersaLoad technology that maintains the tire’s stability and wear in a variety of conditions while its variable pitch tread blocks ensure that you will experience a very quiet ride. Furthermore, its powerful adherence allows it to be used as a reliable traction tire.

Goodyear Eagle LS Radial Tire

Goodyear’s Eagle LS Radial Tire features four circumferential grooves for increased wet traction, special tread block sequence for enhanced handling, and premium sidewall styling for a more contemporary appearance. Its special tread block sequence also reduces tread noise while making the overall driving experience much smoother. Its reliable traction under almost any conditions allows it to be used in any weather while its adherence is way above normal.

Cooper Discoverer H/T Plus All-Season Tire

Using a non-directional tread design, the Discovered tire from Cooper provides a much quieter driving experience overall but especially when driving in a straight line. Intended for SUV’s, this tire can be used by light trucks or crossovers just as well. It has a rubber rim protector and a rounded mold profile that balances traction and tread life. Furthermore, its overall rigid, yet adherent nature makes it an all-season tire.

Hankook Optimo H724 All-Season Tire

This all-season tire from Hankook uses a center rib block that improves handling and stability while changing direction. Its pitch design technology drastically reduces tire noise, even when driving at a fast speed. Its jointless full cover improves its overall durability and brake performance while its high-hardness bead filler ensures its resistance in any weather. 

Continental ExtremeContact DWS All-Season Tire

Continental’s ExtremeContact DWS all-season tire uses easy-to-read tread wear level indicators for greater comfort, improved water evacuation for improved wet handling, and a design that ensures enhanced overall performance in dry conditions. Speaking of design, this particular tire is designed to provide increased traction in light snow conditions and a much smoother, more quiet performance when driving in a wet environment.

Continental ContiProContact SSR Run-Flat All-Season Tire

This all-season passenger tire from Continental uses a central rib that reduces thread pattern noise levels quite a lot, ensuring a much smoother ride overall. It has a run-flat ability for greater mobility in case of a puncture, optimized sipes with defined radius for improved stability, and a circumferential groove for better water evacuation and breaking on wet surfaces.
