  • Ferrari vow jersey to fight Lewis Hamilton to the bitter end

    Lewis Hamilton grasped his chance, as he always does, with both hands at Suzuka. He Authentic Alonzo Mourning Womens Jersey had done all the preparation, putting his Mercedes on pole and with Sebastian Vettel out on lap four, he converted it to maximise the damage. The championship is within his grasp but for neutrals this outcome feels like a shame, after a season that had promised to go to the last race. However, Ferrari’s team principal, Maurizio Arrivabene, is not giving up. “We will fight until the last race. The last lap. The last turn,” he said. But in truth, short of a two-race failure for Hamilton, his fourth title is all but in the bag. The promise for 2018, however, looks better than ever. Ferrari appear to have the quicker car and now must make it reliable, Red Bull are almost on a par in race-pace and a three-way fight is on. Perhaps next year it will go to the last bend.Renault finally ended Jolyon Palmer’s stint in F1 after qualifying, announcing he would be replaced by Carlos Sainz after this race. It was going to happen for 2018 but they accelerated the process and with it ended a longstanding feature of modern F1. Since 1980, when John Watson shared the grid with a selection of other Brits, there have been at least two British drivers competing in Formula One every season. With one exception – in 2005 http://www.officialheatauthentic.com...ms-jersey.html when BAR were banned from Spain and Monaco after their hidden fuel compartment was discovered, and Jenson Button’s absence left David Coulthard as the sole British driver. But outside that the country has been well represented.
    The list includes Nigel Mansell, Derek Warwick, Eddie Irvine, Martin Brundle, Mark Blundell, Damon Hill, Coulthard, Johnny Herbert and Button, among others. Hamilton now stands alone and will not be joined anytime soon. McLaren’s exciting young talent Lando Norris is the only current serious British contender but is unlikely to be moved into the F1 team for two to three years. Should Hamilton choose to call it a day at the end of 2018, the grid would be entirely bereft of British representation.It was another strong weekend for Force India as they proved to be the best of the rest by some distance. Esteban Ocon was running as high as third at one point before he and his team-mate, Sergio Pérez, finished in sixth and seventh respectively. The team are the fourth best squad and have no intention of relinquishing Carlos Ruiz Womens Jersey the position. “Third place should be the target,” Pérez said in Suzuka. “At very least we should be in fourth for two consecutive years but we want to aim for third.” Pérez is refreshingly honest, with enough experience to be unafraid to speak his mind. The problem was, as has been repeatedly identified, that without redistribution of revenues, his team have no chance of competing at the front. His was only the latest voice in what is becoming a clamour that F1’s owners cannot ignore. “The difference in budgets, that is the problem,” he said. “The sport cannot be called a sport the way it is run. It is simply not a sport. I don’t think in any sport you can compete with such a difference. People are spending four times more. If F1 wants to become a fair sport they have to address it.”Valtteri Bottas opened the weekend in Japan having to answer some http://www.authenticphillieshop.com/...ey-jersey.html tough questions. His early form, including two wins and two poles, had been highly encouraging and was key in Mercedes’ decision to retain him for next season but since the summer break he has been distinctly off the pace. While Hamilton went from strength to strength the Finn was going backwards. He has not managed to qualify within half a second of his team-mate in the second half of the season and has not matched him for race pace either. At Suzuka he at least partly addressed it. He was quickest in final practice but an error exiting Spoon cost him when he hit the wall. A comeback in qualifying was needed and he delivered. He was three-tenths down on Hamilton in second, and crucially 0.15sec in front of Vettel. The grid penalty ultimately cost him and his alternate strategy did not pay off in taking the race to the Red Bulls. He has serious aspirations to be a world champion but if they are to be taken seriously he must now show a real resurgence for the final four races.
