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.

Seniors to play final game at Kohl Center

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoNow that March has rolled around, the games start to have more significance. Wednesday night will be no exception.No. 8 Wisconsin (24-4, 14-2 Big Ten) will host Penn State (14-14, 6-10 Big Ten) at the Kohl Center tonight in the team?s penultimate regular season game and in its last home contest of the year a win will move the team one step closer to a conference title.With a 14-2 Big Ten record, Wisconsin needs only to get past Penn State Wednesday and Northwestern Saturday to claim the regular season crown. The Badgers had been tied with Purdue atop the conference, but Ohio State beat the Boilermakers 80-77 in overtime Tuesday night, and this means Wisconsin can now claim sole possession of the title with a pair of wins.Penn State enters the game still hurting from an injury to its star player earlier in the season. In the Badgers? first meeting with the Nittany Lions, an 80-55 victory in Happy Valley, Penn State?s leading scorer Geary Claxton went down with a torn ACL that would end the senior?s season.?When you?re missing somebody like [Claxton], it does affect what you?re doing, but you have some strengths,? Badger coach Bo Ryan said.Before the injury, Claxton was leading the Nittany Lions in scoring and rebounding with 17.5 points and 8.4 boards per game. After the senior went down Penn State went on to lose nine of its next 11 games, but the team enters Wednesday?s matchup having won its last two conference games thanks largely to the freshman Talor Battle who scored 28 points in the team?s last game, a 69-61 win over Michigan.?They?ve got quickness in the backcourt now, compared to the past few years, in Pringle and ? the other guard, Battle, besides the 3-point shooters, Morrissey and Walker, they?re getting some,? Ryan said.UW will also have to deal with junior Jamelle Cornley, who is averaging 12.1 points per game and has scored 20 plus points in two of Penn State?s last three games.?Cornley is so tough,? Ryan said. ?He?s a tough matchup.?Though Penn State?s taken a step back with the loss of Claxton, the team still won?t be taken lightly by Wisconsin.?They got a lanky post player that can do some things defensively, and they found a way to compete with that group. ? I know they?d like to have more on the left-hand side, but who doesn?t??It?s been another strong season for Wisconsin at home this season, losing just twice, and the Kohl Center should prove especially daunting for Penn State, a team that has managed just two road victories all season. Additionally, UW should be well rested heading into the game after six days off following an impressive victory over Michigan State that saw Wisconsin turn the ball over just one time.Wednesday?s contest will also be a meaningful one as it will mark the final home game for the Badgers? four seniors, Tanner Bronson, Brian Butch, Greg Stiemsma and Michael Flowers.The four have each won 98 games during their careers at UW and have an opportunity to the tie school record of 99 career wins, set by last season?s class, with a win over PSU. The four?s 47 Big Ten wins is already a Wisconsin record.?I just think this class has done an unbelievable job of coming together collectively,? Ryan said.Butch currently leads the team in scoring with 12.4 points per game, Flowers has been a solid defensive contributor all year and turned in an impressive effort in limiting Michigan State?s Drew Neitzel to just three points in the team?s last game, and Stiemsma has provided a spark off the bench several times this season and currently leads the Badgers in blocked shots.?I?m telling you right now this group has not been cheated,? Ryan said. ?They grab things as they?re going around. ? They?re reaching. They?re pushing their limits, and that?s what I really like about this group.?last_img read more
