Setbacks and subtle victories: One year of Lebanon protests

  Setbacks and subtle victories: One year of Lebanon protests Lebanon's protest movement has made some important gains since it burst out onto the streets a year ago, even if its revolutionary fever has died down. Revolutionary movements "generally take time" to succeed, but "it is not only a question of time," she warned.Demonstrations that erupted last October 17 over a planned tax on calls made via messaging apps quickly evolved into an unprecedented nationwide uprising against political leaders viewed as inept and corrupt.

Mick Schumacher can no longer take victory in the main race of Formula 2 in Sochi. The protest announced by the ART, Carlin, DAMS and Virtuosi teams was not officially submitted, as a spokesman for the FIA ​​World Automobile Federation confirmed to RaceFans.

The result is now official. Schumacher retains the victory and the 25 championship points and is thus going into the last two racing events of the Formula 2 season 2020, which will be held in Bahrain on the last weekend in November and the first weekend in December, with a lead of 22 points.

Protesting in a pandemic: Why people still took to the streets

  Protesting in a pandemic: Why people still took to the streets Young activists explain the challenges they have faced in demonstrating during a global pandemic.Hundreds of thousands of people have protested against issues ranging from racism and corruption, to disputed exam and election results. But 2020 has also been different from previous years for one obvious reason - the protests have been held at a time of a global pandemic.

After the race, the four opposing teams announced a protest against a decision by the stewards who had fined Schumacher's team boss Rene Rosin with a fine of 10,000 euros.

Rosin had gestured towards the crew before Schumacher's pit stop in the pit lane during the race. Team boss Rosin is not one of the twelve people permitted by the regulations who are part of the team's "operational team". Accordingly, he must not actively influence what is happening.

Rosin's behavior was classified by the Stewards as potentially detrimental to the competition, which constituted a violation of Article 12.1.1.c of the International Sports Code. But since he could not be proven to have had any active influence on the work on the pits and thus on the outcome of the race, the stewards refrained from punishing Schumacher himself.

With a subsequent time penalty against Schumacher, Schumacher could have fallen behind his championship rivals Yuki Tsunoda and Callum Ilott in the ranking of the race, which would have changed the picture in the overall ranking before the season finale.
