Vettel’s new partner? Raikkonen or Ricciardo PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 21 August 2013 23:12


The decision to Sebastian Vettel’s new partner probably falls between Kimi Raikkonen and Daniel Ricciardo. Red Bull team boss Christian Horner suggested this to the Hungarian Grand Prix. In Budapest, Vettel, meanwhile, laid out tough times. And we can feel the race will be spectacular when we watch it.


Kimi Raikkonen and Daniel Ricciardo? This would Ricciardo’s Toro Rosso team-mate Jean-Eric Vergne as Vettel partner from next season out of the race. Horner also assured at the Hungaroring, the three-time Formula 1 champion Vettel would not try to influence the decision. After the summer break should be posted in Spa and Monza, who will succeed Mark Webber. The Australian changes after the season to Porsche. His first victory in Budapest on Sunday, drove his Red Bull during the first free practice session in the meantime 1:22,723 minutes at the Hungaroring and was more than two-tenths faster than his team mate Mark Webber (Australia / 1:22,982) . Behind the World Cup third Kimi Raikkonen (Finland / 1:23,010) finished second overall in the Lotus before Fernando Alonso (Ferrari / 1:23,099) from Spain.

Mercedes plans new assault on Vettel: Infrared trick and louvers PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 21 August 2013 23:04

 

Three long years of Silver Arrow lurched past the targets. There was nothing: a measly victory in 58 races. This year it runs better already clear: Yesterday there was the seventh pole position in the last eight Grand Prix. So that more will follow after two wins, Mercedes upgraded its Silver Arrows to continue. So far it still stumbling block in the vote of the Mercedes on the Pirelli tires. To fix this, turn mastermind Ross Brawn (58) and his armada engineer the car now in a silver UFO: large-scale attack on Vettel with infra-trick and a lot of fresh wind.

 

Two tiny thermal sensors are located directly in front of the front tires on the front wings. They look like mini-submarines, the size of a gherkin. To determine the temperatures of the abdomen and the surface of the tires, send the data immediately to the pits. So engineers can monitor the current temperature evolution of the two front tires. It is important for tuning the car and the perfect time for a tire change. And in the heat of battle in Hungary (to 39 degrees), the two heat-spies can be a very important help today. One passes the cooling air for the engine. The other is an innovation which could soon find several imitators – Lotus tried it out already. Through the second opening of the cover, the air is passed at a certain speed by the rear wing.

Wiggins may target Tour defence after all PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 13 December 2012 19:51


AFP-Bradley Wiggins says he is likely to defend his Tour de France title after all next year despite previously nominating the Giro d'Italia as his main objective for 2013.

The 32-year-old Olympics time-trial gold medallist became the Tour's first British winner last July, with Team Sky colleague Chris Froome second.

At October's launch of next summer's 100th Tour Wiggins intimated May's Tour of Italy would be his priority, leaving the way clear for Froome to lead Sky's Tour assault.

But on Thursday Wiggins told BBC Radio Five: "I don't know what the situation is in terms of leadership, as it stands I'm probably going to try and win a second Tour de France.

"I don't know, maybe we'll have two leaders, which is more than likely I guess. How that's going to work with the team I don't know, that's more (Team Sky general manager) Dave Brailsford's problem to worry about."

He added: "It's just how we service both mouths. Like I said that's more a problem for Dave to figure out, but my goal is to win the Tour next year.

"Whether that is realised or not I don't know really, we're still in this planning phase at the moment, deciding each race, what we're going to do next year, how we are going to go about training to do that.

"Whether I do the Tour of Italy before it, as I've said that is still undecided. All will be revealed in the coming months I guess."

If Froome is chosen to lead Team Sky, Wiggins insists he will support his team-mate.

"Oh yeah, I wouldn't be on the start line if not," he said.

McIlroy makes late charge at Singapore Open PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 10 November 2012 20:29

 

AFP-World number one Rory McIlroy made a late charge up the leaderboard but still trailed Denmark's Thomas Bjorn by five shots after a marathon day three at the Barclays Singapore Open on Saturday.

McIlroy raced into contention with two birdies and an eagle -- offset by a watery double-bogey -- in the first nine holes of his third round before nightfall halted play in the storm-hit tournament.

The third round only started at 4:00 pm (0800 GMT) after weather interruptions over the first two days meant most of Saturday was taken up with completing the second round at par-71 Sentosa Golf Club.

Bjorn, 41, was top of the leaderboard at nine under par for the tournament after a 67 in his second round, which gave him a great chance of his first win of the year.

England's Chris Wood was a shot back at eight under par, with South African George Coetzee two adrift at seven-under after a brilliant 63 in round two.

Ryder Cup star Francesco Molinari was six-under for the tournament alongside Thailand's Chapchai Nirat, while three-time winner Adam Scott was at five-under. McIlroy was tied for 13th at four-under in a group including Louis Oosthuizen.

"You've got to stay with it," said Bjorn. "The weather is always sweating us so we don't really know what we're doing and when we're playing, and it's a bit interrupted (photo by munnybear).

"You just got to try and stay relaxed and see what the tournament brings to you instead of going to chase it."

Two days of storm delays dragged the second round out over 28 hours, and it was a long shift on Sunday with the players on course at 7:30 am and not finishing until nightfall nearly 12 hours later.

Tower of Polish power knocks down Murray in Paris PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 01 November 2012 20:47

 

AFP- Towering Polish qualifier Jerzy Janowicz upset Andy Murray 5-7, 7-6 (7/4), 6-2 on Thursday to complete the early exit of the elite from the Paris Masters.

Murray, seeded third, missed a match point as he followed second seed Novak Djokovic out the door of the Bercy arena 24 hours after the tepid Serb had been beaten by American Sam Querrey.

World number one Roger Federer and injured number four Rafael Nadal did not play the event, which wraps up the ATP regular season and will decide the last two qualifiers for the eight-man World Tour Finals starting on Monday in London.

Murray had never been beyond the Bercy quarter-finals and looked like having the perfect chance to fix that blemish in his record.

But beanpole Janowicz upset the form book with his huge serve, which produced 22 aces and 51 winners in just under two and a half hours.

The 21-year-old winner scored the biggest win of his career on his second match point and fell to the ground with his hands over his eyes lying on the court in pure joy.

Murray did not want to predict how the exits of himself and Djokovci might affect their showings in London next week.

"Only time will tell really. A lot of the players will have had slightly different run ins to the O2. Obviously me and Novak lost early this week; Roger didn't play, and then I think the rest of the guys are still in here (photo by sr_cranks).

"You never know, maybe the guys that go deep here they'll have confidence from having a good tournament. But they may arrive a little bit later and might take a while to get used to the conditions."

Murray's defeat means that the Paris quarter-finals will be the first in four years at a Masters 1000 not to feature at least one of the top four players.

Sharapova battles into Wimbledon third round PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 28 June 2012 19:02

 

AFP-World number one Maria Sharapova was forced to dig deep before securing her place in the Wimbledon third round with a 7-6 (7/3), 6-7 (3/7), 6-0 victory over Bulgaria's Tsvetana Pironkova on Thursday.

Sharapova had crushed Anastasia Rodionova in the first round in her first match since winning the French Open earlier this month, but Pironkova made the Russian fight far harder to keep her title bid on course.

The 25-year-old, who won Wimbledon in 2004, had recovered from 5-2 down to take the first set and had just broken to move 3-1 ahead when the tie was suspended due to bad light on Wednesday evening.

Sharapova asked for play to be called off for several minutes before finally getting her wish, but her pleas looked to have backfired when Pironkova hit back to take the second set when play resumed on Thursday.

That provoked an impressive response from Sharapova, who surged through the final set to earn a last 32 clash with Taiwan's Hsieh Su-Wei as last year's runner-up tries to reach the Wimbledon final for the third time (photo by tennis_pro69).

Pironkova has good pedigree on grass after reaching the Wimbledon semi-finals in 2010 and then making it to the last eight 12 months ago.

And the 24-year-old's talent had shone brightly in the gathering gloom on Wednesday as she raced into a 5-2 lead in the first set.

Berdych masters del Potro to reach Madrid final PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 12 May 2012 23:30

 

AFP-Tomas Berdych mastered the slick blue clay to topple Argentine Juan Martin del Potro 7-6 (7/5), 7-6 (8/6) on Saturday and reach the final of the Madrid Masters.

The sixth-seeded Czech will bid for his eighth career title -- and second at the Masters 1000 level -- on Sunday when he plays either third seed Roger Federer or Serbian number seven Janko Tipsarevic.

Berdych fired down 15 aces in a contest lasting just over two and a quarter hours at the Caja Magica.

"He was my toughest match of the week," said the winner. I had that feeling from the start. But I was confident going in. I had my belief.

"I'm definitely happy with my the game that I've played here all week."

 

The Czech won only his second match out of five against Del Potro, who captured the Estoril title last weekend, as he began his campaign for the French Open later than most of his rivals after resting at home.

Coming to the court, Berdych had won 26 service games this week and got one more before finally being broken in the third game of the opening set.

But he took it back in the 10th game for 5-5 as Del Potro was broken while serving for the set.

The distraught Argentine rallied from 1-5 down in the tiebreaker but still lost it after 68 minutes.

Flying start for Olympic tickets PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 15 March 2011 13:03

Ticket sales for the Olympics have started without any problems, according to London 2012 chairman Lord Coe.  

He is urging sports fans not to rush to make their online applications - at www.tickets.london2012.com - for any of the 6.6 million tickets. There are six weeks to April 26 at 11.59pm to apply. 

 

Lord Coe said: "It has been up since midnight. We have had no reported glitches."

It is not a first-come, first-served system and there will be no greater chance of getting a ticket if you apply on the first day rather than later. A ballot will decide who get seats for the oversubscribed hot ticket events.

Lord Coe described it as a " momentous moment" for everyone at London 2012, who must raise £2 billion from the private sector to stage the Games. He said: "This starts the journey for those who have been dreaming of getting hold of an Olympic ticket since the day we won the bid in 2005 - these really are the greatest tickets on earth."

The tickets cover 26 sports, over 645 sessions and at 34 competition venues. Tickets range from £20 to £2,012 and about 2.5 million tickets across more than 200 events will cost £20 or under, with sports fans paying an average of £47 to watch an event, according to Lord Coe.

He argues that this compares well with big sports events such as the Champions League or the Premier League.
