There are plenty of compelling storylines at this weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix, Round 14 of 20 in the Formula One championship. Can Ferrari bounce back from its humiliating defeat on home soil? Or will Mercedes slam the door on the Italian stable once more? What about Red Bull, which believes it can upstage the two titans at this venue. Is the threat real? Then there’s the lone Canadian in the field, Lance Stroll. Can he pull another rabbit out of his racing helmet? Let’s start with that.
It is the 13th race out of 20, so there is still plenty of track before the curtain comes down on the 2017 Formula One world championship. But my impression is that this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix might be where the title fight between Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton is decided. Not in any mathematical sense, of course. With only seven points separating the two drivers, the crown is unlikely to be clinched until the season finale in Abu Dhabi on Nov. 26.
We’re back. Finally. After a month-long break between Grands Prix — and the Montreal ePrix hogging local headlines just before that — it’s time to plug into Formula One once again. The planet’s premier racing series returns to action this weekend at historic Spa-Francorchamps in the verdant Belgian Ardennes, with Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel clinging to a fragile 14-point lead in the drivers’ championship. Before we get to that, one last word about that Formula E event of late July.
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".
