Barcelona: Lewis Hamilton will seek to complete a hat-trick of Catalan triumphs and regain the lead in this year’s drivers’ world championship as Formula One returns home to this year’s first European race at this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix. The defending five-time champion is a single point behind his Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas in the embryonic standings, following their unprecedented four successive season-opening one-twos. But, like his Mercedes team chief Toto Wolff, he is wary of any suggestion that rivals Ferrari are a fading force and knows that the Italian team, armed with an upgraded power unit being introduced two races sooner than planned, will mount a fierce challenge on the track where they shone in pre-season testing.

Our opponents were blisteringly quick in the winter testing here so this Spanish Grand Prix will be anything but easy.” The pre-season testing at the Circuit de Catalunya, where Sunday’s race is to be run, seems a long time ago now as Vettel and his new team-mate Charles Leclerc struggle to rediscover those dominant displays when it matters. Predictably, most of the teams will arrive in Spain with an array of updates for their cars that may make it more difficult to predict performance, but Ferrari appear to have chosen to adopt a downbeat approach in advance.

After a winless year in 2018, Bottas has come back determined to prove his pace and power this year – he and Hamilton have two wins each, the Finn adding an extra point to his total by clocking the fastest lap in Australia. “Lewis has been world champion many times so being his team-mate is great for me,” said Bottas, revelling this year in the competition. “It’s a good reference and a benchmark and it also gives us an opportunity to have a very strong team. “On the other hand, it’s not easy. It’s so difficult to get ahead of him, but I know it’s possible. I see it as a great opportunity and I would not choose another team-mate even it made my life easier.”
Estate agents in Bromley, Kent say they are growing increasingly annoyed and angry that an employee of a Countrywide competitor, who they says worked through the lockdown despite being furloughed, has yet to be investigated.This case first surfaced two weeks ago, and at the time Countrywide said in a statement that it would take “whatever action necessary” following the allegations. But so far, nothing has happened.The Countrywide staff member involved has subsequently threatened an agent in the area if they continue to press on with their criticisms.The agency which made the initial complaints says it’s baffling that Countrywide hasn’t been in touch with him to discuss the problem, despite the fact that Claire Raines, its Head of Employee Relations, has been sent documentation to back up its claims.The Negotiator has been shown photographs dated 30th April of the male employee leading two clients to a property viewing in the area without any PPE equipment, or protective measures in place.Comments on social media have identified the Countrywide brand involved as a multi-branch agency in and around Bromley in Kent.Other agents have told The Negotiator that he ‘blatantly’ broke the furlough rules and for example used his mobile number on messages for clients to contact him through, clearly proving that he was working. as well as being seen on viewings.The rules state that an employee who is furloughed may take paid work with other companies, with their employer’s agreement, but that overall the scheme is “to provide employers with an option to keep employees on the payroll without them working” and avoid redundancies.Countrywide has been approached for comment but has so far not responded.Bromley Kent Countrywide June 29, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
