Daniel Ricciardo will not leave F1 at the end of the season after agreeing a deal to become the third driver for his former team Red Bull. But why are they reforming the band? F1 correspondent Lawrence Barretto explains…

Ricciardo aims to stay relevant and keep the door to 2024 open

When Daniel Ricciardo and McLaren parted ways, the Aussie decided he wouldn’t rush his next steps. He is at a turning point in his career and, after a difficult experience with McLaren, his next step was very important.

The chance to run for a team lower on the grid didn’t sit well. That’s why Ricciardo and his team haven’t even entered into talks with Haas or Williams, both of whom had 2023 spots.

2023 F1 GRID: All drivers and teams racing next season

Instead, he focused on opportunities where he could keep one foot in the paddock while taking a good break from the sport that has dominated his life for the past decade.

Mercedes and Red Bull were the two teams he and his management spoke with. It made sense to partner with one of the top teams as both of these teams potentially have free seats in 2024 depending on the current contract situation.

With Lewis Hamilton likely to extend his stay at Mercedes, I understand Ricciardo’s side have focused their talks on Red Bull, the operation with which the Aussie has won seven of his eight Grand Prix victories.

Ricciardo is back in the team with which he won seven Grands Prix

He knows a lot of people at Red Bull and remembers being very comfortable driving there. While Sergio Perez has a contract until the end of 2024, you never know what can happen. Worst case scenario and there’s no option, at least he can keep tabs on the reigning world champions.

It is understood the role will involve simulator work, potentially time in the car – likely focused on Pirelli tire testing – some demo car racing and participation in a small number of Grands Prix throughout the season.

It means Ricciardo will have plenty of time to step away from F1, to work out what he really wants to do in the future. He has to see if he can find that hunger again: the irresistible love of Formula 1 racing.

If he decides he wants to fight for a racing seat, even if there is no opportunity at Red Bull, how can we say that there would be no place at AlphaTauri if Yuki Tsunoda or Nyck de Vries not delivering next season?

And if he finds that hunger again, suddenly projects lower on the grid like Alfa Romeo – which will become Audi in 2026 – Haas and Williams become more attractive.

Ricciardo has options if doors open for him in 2024

Red Bull gets a driver it has a great history with

Facing Ricciardo makes a lot of sense for Red Bull, who enjoyed a great relationship with the Australian during their five years together as he progressed through their junior programme.

Even if they were disappointed that he left them for Renault, it’s water under the bridge now, and having someone with such a well-known and strong brand – plus a lot of F1 experience – will only help. to strengthen their overall functioning.

Boss Christian Horner has played down the prospect of Ricciardo taking a racing seat in the team, not least because Sergio Perez has had a strong season, helped them with their first constructors’ championship since 2013 and has that deal until the end. end of 2024.

However, things can change quickly in F1, and having Ricciardo on board gives Red Bull options. Red Bull loves options, which is why they retained Alex Albon before eventually releasing him to Williams.

Ricciardo delivered memorable moments for Red Bull

They can use Ricciardo to replace Max Verstappen, Perez, De Vries or Tsunoda if necessary – and his presence will serve to keep Perez on his toes to ensure he continues to deliver what they expect of him, even if the likelihood of Ricciardo to replace him remains weak.

His efforts on the simulator will be very beneficial, and they will be able to take the opportunity to assess whether he could – if necessary – replace one of their two teams.

Meanwhile, the sheer amount of marketing activity the energy drink brand is involved in means the Aussie can take some of the load off and take the pressure off racing drivers Verstappen and Perez.

And finally, they don’t require him to attend every race as a reserve or spend countless days in the simulator or at the factory – which works well for Ricciardo as well.

It makes a lot of sense for both parties – and that’s why a deal was done pretty quickly.

This is not McLaren’s year. When the 2022 Formula 1 season comes to an end this weekend in Abu Dhabi, the team will have scored a fraction of the points of its top three championship rivals.

But whether 2023 will be better depends on a radical plan: McLaren bought out the contract of eight-time Grand Prix winner Daniel Ricciardo a year earlier and replaced him with another Australian: 21-year-old Oscar Piastri.

With Lando Norris as a team-mate, it will mean McLaren field one of the youngest teams on the F1 grid, with an average age of just 22.

“We are extremely pleased to have an experienced yet young team moving forward,” said Zak Brown, managing director of McLaren Racing. “We believe Oscar has the raw talent and dedication to be a future world champion.”

On paper, Piastri certainly looks like a generational talent. He came through the junior categories, winning the F3 and F2 feeder championships, each time in his debut season. Normally, the best pilots need two seasons at each level: one to learn and a second to win.

While that surprised Piastri, it also appears to have caught up with his longtime backers, French team Alpine, who didn’t have an F1 ready for him for 2022 as Fernando Alonso and Esteban Ocon were under contract. So Piastri spent this season in a reserve role, which meant no racing, but valuable testing experience and behind-the-scenes simulator work.

Meanwhile, as Ricciardo’s form plunged alarmingly, Brown and his F1 team principal Andreas Seidl realized Piastri had an exit clause in his Alpine deal and pounced. When Alonso stunned Alpine in August by announcing he had signed with Aston Martin for 2023, Alpine initially announced Piastri as his replacement – ​​only to have Piastri push him away on social media and reveal he had already signed with McLaren.

F1’s contract recognition committee was called in to resolve the dispute and ruled in favor of McLaren, leaving Alpine empty-handed.

Piastri acknowledges that it’s a lot of effort, money and commitment for a top brand, like McLaren, to show a rookie.

“Motorsport is an incredibly hard-working, serious business,” he says. “It was a massive show of trust and faith that made me appreciate their commitment to me, knowing all that needed to go on to make this possible.” McLaren, he says, “have shown time and time again that they are capable of nurturing young talent” – previous success stories include Mika Hakkinen, Lewis Hamilton and team-mate Piastri Norris.


Commitment is not only obvious on the side of McLaren, however. Piastri has been dedicated to motorsport for years. After proving as a child that he could compete with the best European talents in karting, he chose to come to the UK, alone, at the age of 14.

“My dad said, ‘I’m glad you’re still doing this,'” he recalled. “’But you’re going to have to be here full time and you’ll be here on your own. I’m going home to mom and your three sisters. So I had to make a pretty big decision about whether I wanted to stay in Europe or go back home. It worked well.

Piastri attended Haileybury, a boarding school in Hertfordshire, where he obtained the baccalaureate – usually required for university entrance – in maths, physics and computer science, despite an attendance record of 37% in his final year, due to international racing commitments.

“It definitely made me mature a lot faster than I otherwise would,” he says. “When you go to the other side of the world at 14, you have to grow up quite quickly and learn to do things on your own.”

Piastri comes across as serious and thoughtful – much less of a prankster than the driver he replaces. His record in the junior categories demonstrates an ability to work around problems to unlock the speed that brings results, which is what F1 is all about. Red Bull, this year’s top team, tested Piastri in their simulator before he was picked up by Alpine but failed to spot his talent, which team principal Christian Horner said. publicly stated that he was sorry.

Next season Piastri will face Norris, one of the fastest drivers of the new generation of drivers, who will enter his fifth F1 season when he was just 23 years old. Although Piastri has completed just over 5,000 kilometers of testing in an F1 car, he will be a bit rusty after a season on the substitutes’ bench. But history shows that this is surmountable: it was a forced career change taken by several world champions, including Hakkinen and Alonso.

“I feel reasonably well prepared,” says Piastri. “I had this year to get into the mindset of F1. In the first half of the year, I attended all the races, I took part in all the meetings. I adopted the lifestyle of an F1 driver, just without driving.”

Having proven himself in the junior categories, he feels “ready now for F1”.

“Obviously we have a bit of work to do to get McLaren back to where we want to be,” he added. “But I’m excited to be part of this challenge.”

Argentinian crowds go wild for Juncos, INDYCAR Series laps https://tasman-series.com/argentinian-crowds-go-wild-for-juncos-indycar-series-laps/ Fri, 11 Nov 2022 22:35:40 +0000 https://tasman-series.com/argentinian-crowds-go-wild-for-juncos-indycar-series-laps/ Ricardo Juncos said he even underestimated his fellow Argentinians’ passion for motorsport during Juncos Hollinger Racing’s promotional trip to the country this week.

Ricardo Juncos said he even underestimated his fellow Argentinians’ passion for motorsport during Juncos Hollinger Racing’s promotional trip to the country this week.

The NTT INDYCAR SERIES team was featured in a series of high profile events, highlighted by a festival at Circuit Termas de Rio Hondo, a road circuit where MotoGP has raced since 2013.

“Yeah, that was crazy, man,” Juncos said Thursday before returning to Indianapolis, where the team he shares with Brad Hollinger is based. “We did the show yesterday, a Wednesday, in the middle of the week, and there was only one (one NTT INDYCAR SERIES car) on the track.

“We had expected 3,000 to 5,000 people, but what turned up was over 15,000 people. It was unbelievable. It was huge. I’m very, very happy.

The two-hour event, which had a carnival-like atmosphere with music and activities accenting the laps on the track driven by Argentine touring car champion Agustin Canapino, was streamed live on the team’s YouTube channel. .

Juncos formed Juncos Competition in Argentina in 1997. After moving to the United States in 2003, Juncos progressed the team through the various open-wheel divisions before debuting in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES with two cars in the 2017 Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.

This year, Juncos Hollinger Racing fielded rookie Callum Ilott in a full-season effort, and they started in the front row for the season-ending race, the Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

This promotional tour began with the Juncos Hollinger Racing car exhibited last Friday evening at the famous Michelangelo restaurant in the capital Buenos Aires. The team was then on track as part of a race weekend at the Buenos Aires Circuit, with more than 50,000 people seeing an NTT INDYCAR SERIES car at speed for the first time since 1971.

And get this: Juncos said many of those people couldn’t even see the car finish its demo laps.

“Three hours later, people were still arriving because they couldn’t come (earlier),” he said. “We had finished (racing) but they came anyway, three hours later, just to take a picture of a car (NTT INDYCAR SERIES). It’s amazing.

“(The fans) in Argentina are fanatics; they go crazy for car racing.

Canapino, 32, has won several touring car championships in the country and is “Argentina’s most popular driver”, according to Juncos. The team principal said Canapino was “fantastic” in the car as expected, and he hopes to have him drive for the NTT INDYCAR SERIES team in the future, especially if the country lands a race on the schedule.

Canapino drove with the Juncos sports car team in 2019 in the Rolex 24 At Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring.

Juncos said the goal of the week-long event in Argentina was threefold, starting with the opportunity to show an actual production car to people who last saw one live when Al Unser won the Indy 300 held in 1971 at the Rafaela Autodromo, an oval track opened in 1953.

Juncos also wanted to honor the Argentine corporate sponsors of the team while offering NTT INDYCAR SERIES officials a chance to view Rio Hondo’s Termas circuit so it could be considered for series racing in the future.

Juncos, whose staff organized the trip, said everything went according to plan.

“I think we’ve accomplished everything,” he said proudly.

Frankel: Bull phenom will be worth £275,000 in 2023

Edward Whitaker

By Kitty Trice

Frankel is now Europe’s most expensive stallion, with the glittering stallion’s fee having been raised to £275,000 after Juddmonte released his star list for 2023.

The son of Galileo, who was worth £200,000 this year, was a double world champion on the track and transferred his genius to stud, being crowned champion of England and Ireland and champion of Europe last season.

He looks set to successfully defend his European bull title for 2022 after triumphs in France that included Alpinista in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud, and Nashwa in the Prix de Diane.

frankel has spawned nine individual Group 1 winners this year and 12 over the past two years, including five Classic winners.

Other top performers this term include runaway Irish Derby hero Westover, Coronation Stakes and Prix Jacques le Marois Inspiral winner, Dewhurst Stakes winner Chaldean, Irish Homeless 1,000 Guineas heroine Songs and the winner of the Paris Grand Prix Onesto.

The 14-year-old was also in high demand in the ring as the sire of the four most expensive yearlings in Book 1 of Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, including the world’s most expensive yearling sold in 2022 at 2 800,000 gns.

Juddmonte’s list also includes king manresponsible this year for unbeaten Fillies’ Mile Commissioning and Prix de la Forêt winner and British Champions Sprint Stakes winner Kinross, as well as unbeaten Gimcrack Stakes winner Noble Style and Group 1 ranked juveniles Nostrum and Epictetus.

His fees have been reduced to £125,000 from £150,000 in 2022.

Dream Oasis will continue to represent £20,000 after another excellent season which saw his 2021 European two-year-old champion Native Trail clinch the Irish 2,000 Guineas after a close second in the English equivalent.

As Europe’s leading Group 1 speed sire, he has sired over 220 racehorses, including winners of 30 Group 1 races.

As a broodmare, Oasis Dream is responsible for over 150 black-type performers, with 45 of his daughters having produced group winners.

Holding her breath is another whose fee is unchanged, this time at £15,000. The son of former Banstead Manor Stud stalwart Dansili has been marketed as Britain’s top bull by black type artists for the past three years among stallions worth under £25,000.

His Dick Poole Stakes winner Juliet Sierra was one of nine black type performers for her father in 2022 and is entered for a tilt at the 1000 Guineas in May.

Jade Carey won the World Gymnastics Championships title on vault in an American one-two, a redemptive measure from the Olympics.

Carey, 22, averaged 14.516 points between jumps in Liverpool, England, on Saturday. Compatriot Jordan Chiles won the silver medal, 0.166 points behind, for her first career individual medal at a world championship.

Coline Devillard won bronze to become the first Frenchwoman to win an Olympic or world medal in gymnastics since 2009.

WORLDS OF GYMNASTICS: Broadcast Schedule | Results

Last year, Carey entered the Olympic vault final as the top qualifier after Simone Biles‘ Withdrawal. But Carey misstepped on her run for her first jump in Tokyo and had to bail out with a simpler skill, taking her out of medal contention. She finished eighth in the women’s eight final, then won the floor exercise the following day.

“I’m proud of myself for bouncing back,” Carey said Saturday.

Carey, a world silver medalist on vault in 2017 and 2019, became the fifth different American to win the world title on apparatus since 2009, joining Kayla Williams, Alicia Sacramone, McKayla Maroney and Billes.

Carey, who made a late move to the elite level at 17, is also the fifth American to hold individual Olympic and world titles after Shannon Miller, Nastya Liukin, Shawn Jonson and Billes.

Saturday’s final was missing for the Olympic champion and the 2021 world champion Rebecca Andrade of Brazil, who did not make the top eight after slipping off the board on one of his jumps in qualifying.

Also Saturday, American Shilese Jones followed her all-around silver with another uneven bars silver at her first world championships. China Wei Xiaoyuan repeated as world champion. Belgium Nina DerwaelOlympic gold medalist and two-time world champion, won bronze.

Rhys McClenaghan became the first Irish gymnast to win a world title, dethroning the American Stephen Nedoroscik on pommel horse. Top qualifier McClenaghan, who won Ireland’s first world medal of 2019 (bronze), scored 15,300.

Nedoroscik, who last year became the first American to win a world title on pommel horse, tallied 14.400 for fifth place. He would have taken silver if he repeated his qualifying score.

The event lacked the double Olympic champion Max Whitlock of Great Britain, on a break from competition since Tokyo.

Giarnni Regini-Moran became the first Briton to win a world floor exercise title, beating the Olympic and world all-around champion Daiki Hashimoto from Japan, 14,533 to 14,500.

World champion last year, Nicholas Bartolini from Italy, placed fifth. Carlos Yulo of the Philippines, the top qualifier by half a point, fell on his first tumbling pass and finished seventh. Olympic champion Artem Dolgopyat of Israel failed to qualify for the final.

Adam Asil became the second man from Turkey to win the fixed rings title at the last three world championships. Asil took a 14.933 point lead Zou Jing Yuan of China (14,866). Last year’s Olympic and world champions from China — Liu Yang and Lan Xingyu – did not participate in the world championships this year.

The Worlds end on Sunday with the second and final day of the Individual Apparatus Finals with Americans Carey and Chiles on floor, Skye Blakeley on uneven bars and Brody Malone at the high bar.

At first glance, the Mexican Grand Prix was not ideal for Ferrari, but in real terms it was an eerily perfect weekend.

Still, Mexico’s Montezuma Revenge wasn’t the biggest news of the weekend from Maranello. It happened at Imola, where our Scuderia unveiled its first real Le Mans challenger in 50 years.

Let’s talk about Mexico first. Ferrari knew it would never be in the race at this altitude. But it got worse. So bringing both cars home fifth and sixth, even though it was his worst two-car result of the season, was important.

The problems of the Mexico Grand Prix are not limited to the altitude

Leclerc: Crash won't hurt our weekend

“Our power unit didn’t perform the best this weekend, but that’s only part of the equation,” said Mattia Binotto. “More than that, the ride and balance weren’t great and both were issues we hadn’t detected earlier in the weekend in Mexico.

“Being strong in FP1 and then the FP2 tire test masked our issues. We thought a soft tire strategy was the right choice for the race, but we were already struggling in qualifying. race.

“So it was a difficult weekend, but still essential to bring the cars home and take as many points as possible. Charles and Carlos gave their best, but it is extremely important that we improve in the two last races to end the season to the best of our abilities.

Sainz knew Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez wouldn’t be kind to his Ferrari F-175

“We knew that we would lose performance at high altitude, explains Carlos Sainz. “The engine didn’t work as we wanted, but Mexico is a very special circuit which has never suited us. “Maybe something was going on with the tires as well, but we did our best.”

“Mexico was unique,” added Charles Leclerc. “We absolutely maxed everything out and we were still a minute behind Max, which is huge. “I hope we get back to our usual performances in Brazil, but we also need to improve on our bad days.”

Now, while many would expect a Red Mist blast at this point, far from it. There is nothing but praise for the Scuderia. Of course, the engines were probably reignited. Charles is probably more than Carlos. And the downforce-hungry F1-75 starved for it in the thin air of Mexico.

The team knew they would struggle in Mexico

The team knew it would struggle, but stepped up to make the most of it. Both cars scored well, Ferrari managed the gap to Mercedes and although the focus is now on 2023, it turned a difficult weekend in Mexico into a decent result. A step forward indeed.

Continue to Imola. The new 499P unveiled at the annual Finali Mondiali this weekend is Ferrari’s first sports racing prototype in half a century. The new Quattro-Nove-Nove P Le Mans Hypercar is a big moment for Maranello.

Absent of a real frontline attack at Le Mans since it was humiliated by Matra in 1973, sports cars are probably more important to Ferrari than Formula 1. The Cavallino spent its first quarter-century as a automaker to prove its worth in F1 and sports car racing.

Ferrari is no stranger to sports car success

Accustomed to sports car success, Ferrari won no less than thirteen world championships in 20 years, from 1953 to 1972. This compares to 15 F1 constructors and 15 Formula 1 drivers’ world titles in 72 years of Formula 1.

The first endurance racing series has been known by many names over the years. Ferrari first won world sports car titles in 1953 and ’54, ’56, ’57 and ’58, and 1960 and ’61. Maranello went on to win the 1962, 1963, 1964 and 1965 GT Prototype International Championships.

Ferrari then became international sports-prototype champion in 1967 and finally won the world championship for makes in 1972. Ferrari also won Le Mans nine times against Porsche’s 19 and Audi’s 13, before pressure from Fiat does not push Enzo to choose one. And that was F1.

Ferrari has its work cut out at Le Mans

Now known as the World Endurance Championship, sports car racing is stronger than ever with a massive influx of manufacturer teams into the series. So Ferrari have to fight if they want to reclaim that Le Mans and WEC glory.

Next year Maranello will face Toyota, Peugeot and possibly Glickenhaus, Hypercars and Porsche, Cadillac and Alpine LMDh. BMW, Lamborghini and maybe Acura should join the fray from 24. And all want to win. Bring it on!

Which driver has the most wins in F1 history?

Lewis Hamilton (103)

The most successful driver in F1 history is Lewis Hamilton. The Stevenage man has won 103 Grands Prix in his career and is always looking to add to that tally in future seasons with Mercedes. No other rider has reached triple digits in terms of race wins.

Hamilton is also the most decorated driver in terms of world championship titles, winning seven, with his first return in 2008.

Michael Schumacher (91)

Second on the list of greatest F1 wins in history is German great Michael Schumacher, who has 91 wins. Alongside Hamilton, Schumacher also won seven world titles throughout his illustrious career, including five in a row between 2000 and 2004 as he dominated the sport with the help of his Ferrari team.

Sebastian Vettel (53)

Winner of the Drivers’ Championship four times in a row between 2010 and 2013, Schumacher’s compatriot Sebastian Vettel ranks third for the most F1 victories in history.

Still competing in the 2022 season, this time for Aston Martin, Vettel has already driven for some of the sport’s biggest teams, including Red Bull and Ferrari.

Alain Prost (51)

The most successful French driver in F1 history, Alain Prost won 51 races throughout his career, the first being at the 1981 French Grand Prix. He also managed his own F1 team – Prost Grand Price – between 1997 and 2001.

In a non-executive director role with Renault Sport – now Alpine – until January 2022, Prost is still a regular sight on race days around the world.

Aryton Senna (41)

The late great Ayrton Senna ranks fifth on the all-time list of most F1 race wins thanks to an illustrious career that spanned from 1985 until his untimely death at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.

Recognized as one of the greatest drivers in the history of the sport thanks to his three world championship victories in 1988, 1990 and 1991, Senna is also considered the best wet weather driver of all time and is referenced as the idol of many modern pilots.

Max Verstappen (34)

Dutch driver Max Verstappen, the most recent F1 race winner on this list, has won 33 races throughout his career, which began in 2015.

Driving for Red Bull every year, Verstappen controversially became the 2021 world champion, although he won the 2022 world title in much less dramatic fashion after dominating the rest of the field. At the Mexican Grand Prix, he set a new record of 14 race wins in a single F1 season

Fernando Alonso (32)

A two-time world championship winner in 2005 and 2006 with Renault, Spaniard Fernando Alonso ranks sixth on the all-time F1 winning list with 32 victories.

With his last race win at the 2013 Spanish Grand Prix, Alonso is still going strong in the sport at the age of 40 and provided a shock by qualifying second for Alpine at the recent Canadian Grand Prix, where he eventually finished ninth. This season he also became F1’s longest active career driver after making his debut in 2001.

Nigel Mansell (31)

Nicknamed “The Lion” by Ferrari fans because of his committed and aggressive driving style, British driver Nigel Mansell managed to win 31 races during his F1 career between 1980 and 1995.

After becoming F1 world champion in 1992, Mansell decided to pursue a career in the CART IndyCar World Series, winning that competition in 1993. He became the first rookie to win the title and the first person to reign in F1 and National American Open Wheel. champion at a time.

Jackie Stewart (27)

Winner of three World Drivers’ Championships, Jackie Stewart has been aptly nicknamed “The Flying Scot” due to his electric pace on the racetrack.

Claiming 27 victories during his F1 career, Stewart also narrowly missed winning the Indianapolis 500 in 1966. Between 1997 and 1999 he was Team Principal of the Stewart Grand Prix Racing Team.

Jim Clark and Niki Lauda (25)

Two motorsport legends finish in the top 10. Jim Clarke and Niki Lauda both won 25 races during their respective careers.

The United States Grand Prix in Texas last weekend confirmed what was long overdue – Red Bull became the 2022 constructors’ champion with Max Verstappen finishing the race in first place. After nearly a decade of dominance, Mercedes have finally been beaten by their rivals and it looks increasingly likely that seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton could end his 2022 season without a race win to his name.

There have been several controversies surrounding Red Bull’s wins, namely the cost cap issue, but it appears that any potential penalties won’t remove any championships won by Red Bull. They could, however, face penalties which would affect their 2023 racing season, but the consequences have yet to be agreed.

The Austin Grand Prix was by far one of the most chaotic and best races of the year with pole sitter Carlos Sainz crashing out on the first lap due to a collision with George Russell, for which he was penalized. The carnage continued with another collision between Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll before Hamilton took the lead on the closing laps of the race.

However, as we’ve seen all year, no one can quite match the pace of Red Bull cars and it didn’t take long for Verstappen to overtake his 2021 championship rival and win his 13th race in the championship. ‘year.

With three more races to go in 2022, here’s everything you need to know about the Mexican Grand Prix…

Track of the Mexican Grand Prix in 2017

When is the Mexican Grand Prix?

The race weekend will start on Friday October 28, 2022 and will end on Sunday October 30, 2022. Here is the race schedule for this weekend:

  • Training 1: 7 p.m.-8 p.m.
  • Workout 2: 10 p.m.-11 p.m.

Saturday October 29 (BST):

  • Training 3: 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.
  • Qualifying: 9 p.m.-10 p.m.

Where is the Mexican Grand Prix?

The Mexican Grand Prix takes place at the Autodromo Hermano Rodriguez located near Mexico City. The first Grand Prix was held here in 1963 and was the season finale for several years. However, it was taken off the schedule for over 30 years before returning in 2015.

The circuit is 2km above sea level and the track still largely follows the layout of the original 1959 circuit. The main difference being that the Peralta bend is now split in two, with the circuit winding at the square through the old Foro Sol baseball stadium. The Mexican Grand Prix offers some of the most spectacular views on the F1 calendar.

How to watch the Mexican Grand Prix

Sky Sports will continue to follow all the action from Mexico this weekend with coverage on Sky Sports Main Event and their dedicated Formula 1 channel. Subscription to Sky Sports starts at £46/month and viewers can stream the action via the SkyGo app. NowTV also offers daily Sky Sport passes from £11.98/day.

Who will win the Mexican Grand Prix?

It seems unlikely that anyone outside of Red Bull will win the Mexican Grand Prix. They simply don’t have a competitor to match them in pace. So unless something goes terribly wrong, Max Verstappen could score a record number of wins in a year or Mexico could have their first champion on home soil.

Given that Verstappen has already won the Drivers’ Championship, Red Bull could prioritize Sergio Perez to win not only second place in the Drivers’ Championship but also his first Grand Prix on home soil.

The United States lost to France by five points in the Tokyo Olympic men’s basketball final. Could Victor Wembanyama7-foot-3, 18-year-old favorite to be the No. 1 pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, assists Blues reverse this result at the 2024 Paris Games?

The “Wembamania” is sweeping France, and everyone is trying to take a look at the “extraterrestrial”, as james lebron described his talent, likely to become an NBA star.

Even the 85-year-old former Prime Minister Lionel Jospinwho called the president of the French team of the Wembanyama club to ask him for a ticket.

Its wingspan is almost 8 feet, and it can almost grab the rim – 10 feet in the air – without jumping.

“My goal,” Wembanyama told The Associated Press, “is to be like something you’ve never seen.”

Vincent Colletwho coaches Wembanyama Metropolitans 92 club team near Paris and the France national team, said the hype is normal and great for French football.

“It’s something you can’t really control, and it’s because of what happened two weeks ago in the United States,” he said, referring to the two games. Metropolitans 92 standout against G League teams outside of Las Vegas. “In general, it’s a good thing for basketball, for our club and for the game. It highlights basketball, it attracts people.

Collet believes Wembanyama has enough mental toughness to handle the demands of the NBA, despite his young age.

“There is what the Americans call ‘skills’, an ability that is out of the ordinary. But remember he’s only 18 and a half. In basketball at the highest level, there are a lot of things to manage,” said Collet. “But he has an extraordinary capacity for learning. You don’t need to keep teaching him because he learns very quickly. It’s a great asset, along with all the others he has. It is very valuable, believe me, because it is very rare.

Victor’s father Felix, was a triple jumper, but did not compete in the Olympics. Victor’s mother Elodie de Fautereauplayed professional basketball and also coached.

It was hard to ignore basketball growing up: my sister Standby – who is 20 – is a pro with Monaco in the second-tier league LF2.

Cadet Oscar is 15, won a national junior title with Nanterre and, like his brother, later joined ASVEL, which is owned by Parker.

Wembanyama is considered a virtual certainty to be the top-five pick in the NBA Draft in France.

The NBA’s most famous French player was soon Hall of Famer Tony Parkerwho was drafted in 2001, a year after not having been part of the French team at the 2000 Olympics which lost in the final 85-75 against the American Parker, was 18 at the time of the Sydney Games.

The most notable French Olympic basketball player was, like Wembanyama, a 7-foot player. This is Frederic Weisarguably the best-known French Olympian to Americans in all sports after being posterized by Vince Carter as a group at the Sydney Games.

As Wembanyama will be, Weis was drafted in the first round the year before the Olympics. He was ranked 15th overall by the New York Knicks in 1999, but never played in an NBA regular season game, opting to stay in France.

At the Paris Games, Wembanyama will be 20 and a half years old – a year older than the football star Kylian Mbappe it was when he played for France in their 2018 World Cup victory. The two prodigies grew up in the suburbs of Paris, where Wembanyama was able to take over from great judokas Teddy Rinner as the new French Olympic star in 2024.

The hype around Wembanyama is growing. National news channel France 2 aired a report on him after his jaw-dropping performances outside of Vegas.

“It’s normal, no problem. At PSG, people always talk about Mbappe,” said Collet. “We all enjoyed that moment in Las Vegas, which would never have happened if Victor hadn’t been on the team. He’s a good teammate, and you can’t look for problems that aren’t there.

metropolitan president Alain Weisz, the head coach when Parker made his senior national team debut two months after the Sydney Games, said tickets for last Friday’s game sold out within two hours. The game at Le Mans the previous Saturday – Wembanyama’s first after his Las Vegas bonanza – saw the lowly club sell all 6,000 tickets for the first time.

“What the boy is doing is unheard of,” Weisz told France Info radio. “It’s not just young people here or rappers who identify with Victor. Even Lionel Jospin called me for a ticket. What happened in the United States created an unimaginable level of interest.

The club has already sold twice as many shirts as last season in one month of competition, 85% of which were on behalf of Wembanyama. On average, six scouts come to each game and one of the Sacramento Kings even spent two days watching him practice before attending the Le Mans game.

“Victor’s determination is extraordinary,” Weisz said. “He reminds me a lot of Tony Parker.”

Wemby, as he is already affectionately known, was deadly in Las Vegas. He finished two exhibition games with 73 points, nine 3-pointers, 15 rebounds and nine blocked shots and an army of fans dreaming of what he could do in the NBA.

After the Vegas showcase, Wembanyama has been named on the French roster for the FIBA ​​World Cup 2023 Qualifiers which will take place next month. They would mark his senior national team debut.

“We’ll try to help him as much as possible to stay focused because there’s a lot at stake. We have to help him in the best way possible,” Collet said. “He’ll have to get used to (the hype) because it’s not going to get any less.”

Wembanyama could be just what the French national team needs to overtake the US men’s basketball team, which has won the last four Olympic titles. If the United States has a weakness, it is height. Anthony Daviswho skipped the Tokyo Olympics, is the only American center to have been on an All-NBA team in the past five seasons.

A joker is the Philadelphia 76ers all-star center Joel Embid, who is Cameroonian. In the spring, French media reported that Embiid had started the process to become eligible to represent France in international basketball, citing the national team’s general manager. Boris Diaw.

Then Embiid said last month that he had been granted US citizenship.

Embiid, who has never played in a major international tournament, could choose to represent Cameroon in the Olympic qualifiers. Cameroon has never qualified for an Olympic basketball tournament. Or he could turn to the United States or France, with his decision having a significant impact on the 2024 men’s Olympic tournament.

Announcing his US citizenship last month, Embiid said it was far too early to think about his international status.

The France national team is already led by another 7-footer, three-time NBA All-Star Rudy Gobert. Adding Embiid and Wembanyama could give Blues a front yard with three towers.

The French Olympic team last year had five NBA players against the 12 Americans: Nicholas Batum, Evan Fournier, Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot, Franck Ntilikina and Gobert.
