Sebastian Vettel says the last two races have provided Ferrari with a harsh awakening as it has uncovered more problems with its car.Ferrari has not finished on the podium since the Austrian Grand Prix four rounds ago and in Germany it slipped behind Red Bull in the constructors championship. The Italian team saw the Hungarian and German Grands Prix as an opportunity to challenge Mercedes ahead of the summer break, but at both races it ended up as the third best team behind Red Bull.Vettel says the disappointing performances laid bare some of Ferraris weaknesses, but he is confident his team can address those issues in the second half of the season.I think the last couple of races have been harsh and tough for us, but very, very useful, he said. I think we understood a lot about our car strength and weaknesses about our car, so we know what to focus on, so yeah it wasnt entirely clear after the first couple of races but it became more and more evident, obviously its a harsh way to find out, not being competitive and not as competitive as we want to.I think we know what to do, obviously its not going to change overnight but theres a plan and I think the second half we should be stronger in that regard. It also depends on what other people do but for that we focus on ourselves.Pushed on the details of the SF16-Hs weaknesses, Vettel said: I think its more of a general thing but I dont want to go into too much detail, I know youre very interested! Some things do take a little bit of time but overall the most important is that were challenging ourselves and obviously youre right, it would have been nicer to find out a bit sooner, but thats how it is.The main point is that we find out, we are always trying to improve, but the last races in this regard have been very educational to know potentially where our weaknesses compared to Red Bull and Mercedes.

Meagan Martin got the monkey off her back.At the Indianapolis finals in Mondays American Ninja Warrior episode, the 26-year-old climber from Boulder, Colorado, punched her own ticket to Las Vegas (i.e., qualified without needing a wild-card invitation), joining Kacy Catanzaro and Jessie Graff as the only women to achieve that feat.Martin finished in eighth place after making it to the ninth obstacle, the Circuit Board, before her grip gave out and she hit the water. She knew shed made a mistake early in her run and needed to fix it, but she lost her balance in the process.It was a little disappointing, but Im still very pleased with my run! Martin said via text.Its hard not to be pleased. The former Vanderbilt pole vaulter has performed well in city qualifying rounds, hitting the buzzer in each of the past three seasons -- the only woman to do that. When it came to finals, however, shes come up short.It was really important to me to break that cycle, Martin said. I really made a point to stay focused on each obstacle as I got to it and not get ahead of myself.Martin, a member of the ninja training and rock climbing group known as the Wolfpack Ninjas, is no stranger to Vegas. After earning wild-card invitations to the finals the past two seasons, she became the first woman to complete the Jumping Spider in 2014 before stalling out at the Warped Wall. She equaled that performance again in 2015. Her success has earned her the respect of many, including ANWs biggest fans: kids.It means so much to me to be a role model, Martin said. Im the oldest of three girls, so I think Ive always made decisions with setting a good example in mind. Now with American Ninja Warrior, I am on a much bigger stage, so its great to have the opportunity to show girls that they can be and do anything they put their mind to.Indianapolis city finals specs: Finishers: 4Female finishers: 0Women moving on: 1New or modified obstacles on second half of course:: 1 out of 4The course: Were into city finals episodes, where the first six obstacles remain the same as in each of the city qualifiers (except for a couple of tweaks).dddddddddddd In city finals, the course builders added four obstacles on the second portion of the course (which well review below), bringing the total number of obstacles to 10.The first obstacle on the second part of each city finals course so far (i.e., the seventh obstacle overall) is the Salmon Ladder. Ninjas hang from a bar and must propel themselves upward to jump the bar up a series of rungs.The eighth obstacle in Indianapolis was the Hourglass Drop, which made its ANW premiere in Venice in 2015. Its a certified ninja killer. Ninjas hang from a bar, and then drop onto a trampoline to propel themselves to a hanging board. They must hop their hands along the unstable board, doing their best to keep it level, lest it tip and dump them into the water, before dismounting onto the platform.The Circuit Board is the all-new ninth obstacle on this course. In both a cerebral and physical test, competitors grip two movable pieces that hang from cutouts in a board. The pieces can be taken in and out of the openings, and ninjas must slide them along the boards cutouts to maneuver to the next platform.The Invisible Ladder returns as the 10th obstacle. So far, thats been the case on each city finals course. Ninjas grab rings suspended from a hole in a platform and pull. When their movement stops, the ring catches their weight so that it looks like they are pulling themselves up a ladder, through the hole at the top of the finishing platform.Looking forward: Next weeks episode features the Oklahoma City finals, which was a surprising region that saw the early exits of ninja greats Catanzaro and Lance Pekus. It should be an interesting ride! ' ' '
