Vettel to leave Ferrari at end of 2020 F1 season

first_imgBy Alan BaldwinLONDON (Reuters) – Four-times Formula One world champion Sebastian Vettel will leave Ferrari at the end of the 2020 season, with the German facing an uncertain future in racing.The sport’s oldest, most glamorous and successful team announced the move in a statement on Tuesday after talks on a new contract ended without a deal.“This is a decision taken jointly by ourselves and Sebastian, one which both parties feel is for the best,” said Ferrari principal Mattia Binotto.“It was not an easy decision to reach, given Sebastian’s worth as a driver and as a person.”Vettel joined in 2015 with the dream of emulating boyhood hero and seven times champion Michael Schumacher in winning titles in the famous red cars.Where the 32-year-old will go, whether he will remain in a sport whose delayed season has yet to start, and who might replace him are the big questions now.“In order to get the best possible results in this sport, it’s vital for all parties to work in perfect harmony,” said Vettel. “The team and I have realised that there is no longer a common desire to stay together beyond the end of this season.“Financial matters have played no part in this joint decision. That’s not the way I think when it comes to making certain choices and it never will be.”“What’s been happening in these past few months has led many of us to reflect on what are our real priorities in life,” added the father of three, referring to the COVID-19 pandemic that has sent countries around the world into lockdown.Vettel said he would now take time “to reflect on what really matters when it comes to my future”.TIME TO SPLITGerman media, who flagged up the departure on Monday night, reported that he had rejected the terms being offered.They suggested Vettel, who won 14 races with the team and is their third-most successful driver, had been offered only a one-year extension with a salary reduction.Ferrari had said the German, who won his titles with Red Bull from 2010-13, was their first choice to partner Charles Leclerc in 2021.Binotto said there was no one reason for the split “apart from the common and amicable belief that the time had come to go our separate ways in order to reach our respective objectives”.Leclerc, who won two races last year and is only 22, has a contract until 2024 and is seen as the future of a team that last won a driver’s title with Kimi Raikkonen in 2007.The Monegasque outperformed Vettel last year in his first season at Ferrari, finishing ahead of him overall and taking more points, poles, podiums and wins.“It’s been a huge honour for me to be your team mate,” Leclerc said on Twitter.“We’ve had some tense moments on tracks, some very good ones and some others that didn’t end as we both wanted, but there was always respect, even though it wasn’t perceived this way from the outside.“I’ve never learnt so much as I did with you as my teammate. Thank you for everything Seb.”Australian Daniel Ricciardo, at Renault, and McLaren’s Spaniard Carlos Sainz have been installed as the leading candidates to take one of the most coveted seats on the grid.Six-times world champion Lewis Hamilton has also been linked with Ferrari but has repeatedly indicated he intends to stay with Mercedes.last_img read more

We will be seeking to work closely with the SSV to establish a working relationship with policymakers and other stakeholders to discuss those issues in more detail and to ensure that the market opening is successful.“This includes supporting the licensing requirement for all sports betting operators to be a member of an integrity monitoring body, and where the Dutch law specifically mentions IBIA as a best practice model.”last_img read more


AAG 2015: Malik Jabir confident of Mozambique scalp on Sunday

first_imgCoach of Ghana’s Under-23 male football team Malik Jabir has expressed confidence that his side will qualify for the 2015 All Africa Games (AAG) in Congo Brazzaville ahead of the Mozambicans.The Meteors will host the Southern African side in a decisive final round qualifying match for the quadrennial multiple sports showpiece on Sunday at the Tamale stadium.The Meteors, who won the 2011 edition of the AAG, are hoping to overturn the 0-1 loss they suffered in Maputo in the first leg three weeks ago.Jabir said the addition of new faces will put the team in good stead to overpower their Mozambican opposition.“We quite understand that the encounter is a winner takes all clash as well as automatic ticket to the All Africa Games in Congo Brazzaville so we’re not leaving any stone unturned to ensure we secure a place for the games. “If the Mozambicans could beat us at their home we can as well beat them here and qualify. “The Mozambicans were defensive throughout the duration of the clash in Maputo over here in Ghana the pattern will change as they’re most likely open up aimed at clinching a victory.“I think that will give us the opportunity to pull the killer punch to secure the crucial win as well as ticket for the All Africa Games.“It’s going to be a difficult match but I know for certain that we’ll triumph at the end of the day,” said the former Black Stars Player.A two nil score line in Tamale will be adequate to hand the Meteors the ticket to the football event of the All Africa Games in Congo Brazzaville later in the year.– Follow Tony on Twitter: @tonybeblilast_img read more


Roger Federer storms past limping John Isner to claim 4th Miami Open title

first_imgThe runner-up to Dominic Thiem at the Indian Wells Masters earlier this month, Federer won a remarkable 21 points in a row on serve at one point, leaving his opponent powerless.Having been broken three times in the opening set, Isner put up more of a fight in the second and initially kept pace with Federer only to suffer an injury to his left foot.Isner could hardly move as he attempted to hold trailing 4-5 and it was no surprise to see Federer break to seal an emphatic victory. Federer ended the contest having won 32 out of 35 points on his serve. A champion in Dubai earlier this month, the veteran Swiss is the first player to claim two titles on the ATP Tour in 2019.100 + @rogerfederer is the 2019 @MiamiOpen champion pic.twitter.com/dGbESwMI9H— ATP Tour (@ATP_Tour) March 31, 2019In the postmatch presentation, a gracious Isner said to Federer: “You were entirely too good today; you were entirely too good this whole tournament; you were entirely too good in your whole career.”It’s absolutely incredible what you’re doing. We’re so lucky to have you in this game and we all want you to keep playing and literally never retire.” Roger Federer produced a dominant performance to beat John Isner in the Miami Open final, although the American was cruelly hampered by injury in the closing stages as he went down 6-1 6-4.Isner’s serve is regarded as one of the most potent weapons in the game, but it was Federer who continually held with ease on Sunday as he secured his fourth title in Miami and the 101st of his career.last_img read more


NBA playoffs 2019: Stephen Curry says Warriors must ‘erase’ Game 5 loss

first_img“Our message to each other going into Game 6 is, yes, we would have loved to have come in win four straight or close it out tonight,” he said. “[It] doesn’t change what the goal is. The goal is to win four games, move on to the next series and start it all over again.”And as much as we hate this feeling we have of leaving the court tonight after Game 5, the goal is still the same. So again resiliency, we talk about that all the time, it should be there on Friday.”Despite the loss, Curry did manage to reach another landmark as he became the first player to surpass 400 career postseason 3-pointers.

Steve Kerr calls Damian Lillard’s game-winner against Thunder a ‘good shot’center_img It was a contest in which the Warriors, seeking a third straight NBA title, failed to match their usual intensity.In contrast, Williams was evidently in the mood and his display won begrudging praise from Curry, who would rather forget all about the game. Related News “Numbers don’t lie,” Curry said on the subject of how the Warriors had dealt with Williams. “The matter of our intensity or our lack of intensity to start the game kind of came back to bite us.”They had confidence all throughout their rotation early. And they fed off that in the second half.”[Williams is] obviously an X-factor for them and the main catalyst in terms of momentum swings because he can get going really quick.”Curry added: “It’s one of those nights that we’ve got to erase from our memory quick.”Stephen Curry becomes the only player in NBA history to knock down 400 career postseason threes. pic.twitter.com/eDOgWrZbwo— Golden State Warriors (@warriors) April 25, 2019Steve Kerr’s team will now look to finish the job Friday in Los Angeles, and Curry is confident the Warriors will bounce back.last_img read more

Report Reply 0 Vote up Vote down JustMe · 312 weeks ago No proof of a crime being committed, but everyone passing the checkpoint is being stopped (they’re assuming everyone is guilty at that point) and questioned, without representation, then they decide if you are guilty of a crime or not. I’ve noticed a lot of forgery cases in the police notes lately. Maybe they should setup a checkpoint and pull everyone over to make sure that they don’t have any checks/credit cards that don’t belong to them. Same premise.

Mississippi State, Ole Miss support SEC pressure for a new state flag: ‘It is past time for change’

first_img“It is past time for change to be made to the flag of the State of Mississippi,” SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said in a recent statement. “Our students deserve an opportunity to learn and compete in environments that are inclusive and welcoming to all.”In the event there is no change, there will be consideration of precluding Southeastern Conference championship events from being conducted in the State of Mississippi until the flag is changed.”MORE: Why Florida banned its “Gator Bait” cheerThe NCAA has banned postseason events in Mississippi for the same reason.The SEC’s two schools in the state, Mississippi State and the University of Mississippi, have not displayed the flag since 2016. Both released statements of support in the wake of Sankey’s threat to keep conference championships out of the state until its flag is changed. Almost 20 years after the people of Mississippi voted to keep its state flag featuring the Confederate symbol, Mississippi legislators are proposing another bill that would remove the stars and bars from the upper corner of the banner.And in order for the state to host future Southeastern Conference championships, as it last did in 2016 with the SEC softball tournament, it will need to pass. From Mississippi State president Mark Keenum: “Clearly, the current national climate is such that this debate may produce unintended consequences for our student athletes here at Mississippi State University and those at the University of Mississippi. Since 2015, our Student Association, Robert Holland Faculty Senate and university administration have been firmly on record in support of changing the state flag. I have reiterated that view to our state’s leaders on multiple occasions, including during face-to-face discussions in recent days and hours.”On June 12, I wrote to the governor, lieutenant governor and speaker of the Mississippi House reaffirming that support. The letter said, in part, that our flag should be unifying, not a symbol that divides us. I emphasized that it is time for a renewed, respectful debate on this issue.”I support President Keenum. At Mississippi State University I embrace the inclusion of all People and open dialogue on all issues. Hail State! https://t.co/iFCssa3EwF— Mike Leach (@Coach_Leach) June 19, 2020From Ole Miss chancellor Glenn Boyce and athletic director Keith Carter in a joint statement:”The University of Mississippi community concluded years ago that the Confederate battle flag did not represent many of our core values, such as civility and respect for others. In 2016, the university stopped flying the state flag over our campus. Mississippi needs a flag that represents the qualities of our state that unite us, not those that still divide us.”We support the SEC’s position for changing the Mississippi State flag to an image that is more welcoming and inclusive for all people.”According to WAPT in Jackson, Miss., the legislature that would change the state’s flag is in danger of not making it past committee. State Sen. Derrick Simmons, who filed the resolution, did say he is hopeful the flag will eventually change.last_img read more
