There was a motor show last week. In Frankfurt. You may have noticed. We did. Oh, we certainly did. The huge number of you who visited autocar.co.uk last Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday would certainly have noticed, because we had unrivalled live coverage of the Frankfurt motor show press days, with live updates, all the news, plenty of videos and hundreds of photos.
Lewis Hamilton moved 28 points clear in the Formula 1 World Championship standings after taking a dominant victory in the Singapore Grand Prix as title rival Sebastian Vettel crashed out at the first corner. The German Ferrari driver had qualified in pole position but was involved in a crash with his team-mate Kimi Räikkönen and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen on the run to the first corner in wet conditions. All three retired due to damage from the accident.
McLaren Racing will use Renault engines next year after splitting from current partner Honda. McLaren, which has won 12 drivers’ and eight constructors’ titles since entering Formula 1 in 1966, has used Honda engines for the last three seasons - but the pairing have struggled for both pace and reliability. The deal between Renault Sport and McLaren is for three seasons from 2018 until 2020.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
