Last week Ferrari threatened to quit Formula One if proposed new rules weren’t to the team’s liking. It’s not the first time that the Scuderia has made such a threat and it probably won’t be the last, but you can rest assured that they are going nowhere because, much as they hate to admit it, Ferrari needs F1 more than the other way around. In 1957 there were those who would have had Ferrari cast out of motorsport altogether.
So, what’s to be done about track limits in Formula One? They either exist or they don’t and that is why so many people are angry about the five-second penalty given to Max Verstappen for driving off the road when overtaking Kimi Raikkonen on the last lap of the US Grand Prix yesterday (Sunday). There is no doubt that Verstappen cut the corner.
Good riddance, a lot of people have said. Blame the media, have others. Still more that Sean O’Brien’s an ungrateful so-and-so. Lots of people saying lots of things, all of it louder and more vicious than necessary. And that’s just the reaction after Warren Gatland walked away, saying he’s ‘done’ with the Lions, he ‘hated’ the last tour. Let’s not even consider what went on during said tour to make him feel that way in the first place.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
