Formula One unrest, uncertainty as Hamilton eyes Schumacher record

first_img Loading… Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc is a likely threat to HamiltonThree years on from Liberty Media’s takeover, F1 is at the threshold of an exhausting examination of its credibility, durability and, in some quarters, relevance as the world around it swirls with influential events yet there is still evidence of its rude health in the queue to host races, huge budgets and extended number of races.Hamilton and Mercedes’ hegemony is under threat from not only Ferrari’s old-and-new pairing of Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc, but also the unquestionable brilliance of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, who holds the records as youngest driver, at 17, and winner, at 18.Now 22, he aims to take Vettel’s record as youngest champion.Verstappen, however, has shrugged aside talk of records to focus, instead, on unsettling his target.“He is good, very good and one of the best, but he is not God,” he said of Hamilton in February.The champion replied, suggesting such sabre-rattling was “a sign of weakness”.For the Dutch driver, it was a satisfying result. His darts had stung, he claimed.“I think the only competition he’s had over the years, really, has been his team-mate,” he said.“In general, over a season, the car has been too dominant for anyone to be able to do something against it. That’s why I think so far we have not been able to stress test him. It’s been a little too comfortable.“I’m very fired up to give it a go and I think he knows that. The whole team is fired up and we want to give them (Mercedes) a hard time. If you don’t have that fire within yourself, you’d better stay home.”– ‘Amusement’ –Pre-season testing saw Mercedes, the six-time champions of the current turbo era, introduce an adventurous dual-axis steering system (DAS) to an inevitable uproar from their rivals.F1 head of motorsport Ross Brawn, a famed poacher-turned-gamekeeper, laughed at the furore, describing it as “classic F1”.Formula One teams and drivers for 2020 An air of unrest and uncertainty hangs over Formula One as the global motor racing bandwagon flies to Melbourne for the start of the 71st championship season at this weekend’s Australian Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton targets a record-equalling seventh world title Lewis Hamilton’s bid to equal Michael Schumacher’s tally of a record seven drivers’ titles, and to overhaul his total of 91 race wins, will surely be the greatest focus of on-track attention as his younger rivals rise to challenge his supremacy. Against a backdrop of climate crisis demonstrations and coronavirus fears, not to mention an angry anti-Ferrari schism in the pit-lane, it is hardly likely to be a peaceful season. Hamilton is in the final year of his current Mercedes contract amid persistent rumours of a possible future move to Ferrari while the sport itself is bracing for the introduction of a radical new rule-book and revamped formula in 2021 –- and the need for a green revolution beyond that.Advertisement Read Also: NBA: Doncic sets Mavs triple double record, red-hot Bucks roll over PacersBrawn, once of Benetton and Ferrari, won the title with his eponymous Brawn team in 2009.He said a protest at the opening race is likely –- and that the innovation will be banned next year.“I’ve been involved in a lot of those arguments myself, in my time,” he conceded. “So, I watch now with amusement.”Like most observers, he believes Hamilton remains the man to beat, a view shared by former champion Damon Hill who has compared his compatriot’s stature in F1 to that of Roger Federer in tennis.“He keeps coming back to the front,” he said. “It takes enormous talent, but that’s not good on its own. He has nurtured it, applied it, not spent it unwisely. He is a phenomenon.”Another title success this year would invite Hamilton to go on to seek an eighth and move into uncharted places, just as F1 readies itself for a leap into the unknown.In many ways, 2020 could be a defining end-of-era season.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img The 2020 calendar, originally a bloated and unprecedented 22 races, including new events in Vietnam and the Netherlands, has been hit by late alterations including the postponement of China’s race in April, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and doubts over other Grands Prix.

The secret is out on Nelson’s Mitch Popadynetz

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily SportsThose in the know about the local soccer scene knew at a young age Nelson’s Mitch Popadynetz had the potential of turning into something special.The ball skills of this Nelson Youth Soccer product were ahead of the rest of the pack, the way he fed his teammates and the way he, well, just made everyone around him play a lot better.Now North American roundball experts are standing up to take notice of was Nelsonites knew for a very long time.Popadynetz, 15, has been selected to 2010-11 Super Y-League ODP National Camp.Popadynetz, who played last season in midfield for the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Soccer Club, was selected to the 1994/95 Super Y-League ODP National Camp.“I’m pretty excited on getting selected to the camp,” Popadynetz told The Nelson Daily from his Heritage City home. “I really didn’t know too much about (ODP National Camp) until I talked to some kids who had gone before. They all tell me it’s a pretty big deal.”Popadynetz, nominated in the 1994-1995 division has been identified as one of the top players in his respective birth year in the Super Y-League. 
 This camp, slated February 2011 in Florida, gives the elite group of players the opportunity to display their soccer talent and work ethic to collegiate and national team scouts. “It’s a compliment to Mitch to be chosen from the highest youth level league in North America,” said Dave Spendlove, provincial coach and owner/operator of Soccer Quest in Nelson. “The Y League has league playing from across all of North America including Canada and only the top one to two percent of players in this league are chosen for this event.”Popadynetz played in Nelson Youth Soccer since he was a youngster, leading the U13 Selects squad to a silver medal in 2008. The Selects came within a penalty shot of capturing the B.C. Soccer Provincial B Cup.In 2009 as the Heritage City hosted the provincial tournament at the Lakeside Pitch, Popadynetz & Company was one of the early favourites to repeat as medalists. But after a promising start, U14 Selects lost its final two games to finish fourth.This season Popadynetz decided to take his show on the road to the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Soccer Club to play on the U14 squad.The 5’7”, 130-pound midfielder, tied for third on team scoring with six goals and five assists, helped Metro-Ford capture the Lower Mainland title with an 11-0-1 record. The title qualified Coquitlam for the North American United Soccer League championships in Tampa Bay, Florida, November 21-27. Metro-Ford finished with a 2-2 record, just missing the playoff round on goal differential.Popadynetz is now back in Nelson for the winter, perfecting his skills playing in the Soccer Quest Men’s Open Indoor League. In March the Grade 10 student at L.V. Rogers High School remains optimistic to return to Coquitlam for another season.As for another trip to Florida, Popadynetz is unsure. “I’m not really sure if I’m going to go back to Florida having just been there but I have to sit down (with my parents) and talk about it,” explained Popadynetz, able to play with his friends from Nelson at the 2010 B.C. Provincial B Cup in the Fraser Valley in July. “Hopefully I’ll be able to go.”For Spendlove this is an opportunity that doesn’t come along all too often, so rising Nelson star should do everything in his power to make the trek to Florida.“Scouts from the Canadian Soccer Association, America Soccer Association and top college scouts are all in attendance,” Spendlove said. “For a kid from Nelson it’s a real honor and a compliment to those who have trained and coached him over the past four years.”“(Being one of his coaches) Mitch has a great first touch, works hard and is a pleasure to coach,” Spendlove added.Which are key ingredients that make it a lot easier for this special player to succeed.sports@thenelsondaily.comlast_img read more
