Israel: ‘Iron Dome’ rocket shield test a success

Israel says it has successfully tested an anti-rocket system developed to protect the country from short-range rocket and artillery attack from Lebanon and Gaza, defense officials said. McLaren’s Hamilton was way off the pace in Friday’s opening practice sessions in Melbourne, finishing 16th and 18th. It was scarcely better for Ferrari, with Felipe Massa, Hamilton’s title rival last season 10th in the afternoon session and teammate Kimi Raikkonen in 11th.
