Mexican GP: Verstappen Loses Pole after Grid Penalty

first_imgIn front of him, Vettel had slowed down for the flags, a decision that he believed cost him a shot at fastest time.Verstappen’s quickest lap beat Leclerc by 0.266 seconds – and his first run was 0.114secs faster than the Monegasque.Hamilton, who will win the championship one Sunday if he finishes 14 points ahead of Bottas, starts third, with Red Bull’s Alexander Albon still fifth but now right behind his team-mate.Hamilton improved his overall lap time on his final run, on which he was running behind Bottas and passed his crashed car, but crucially he did not go faster in the final sector – in fact, he slowed down.And Vettel expressed his dismay at the turn of events as he saw the flags, saying over the radio: “You’re kidding me. That was going to be a good lap.”Later, Vettel said of the incident: “For me it was clear it was double yellow. I saw Valtteri was in the barrier, people were jumping on the track to help. It was clear you had to lift.”Initially, stewards did not investigate the incident with Verstappen, even though television pictures showed him passing a yellow flag and Bottas’s car without slowing down.But after he admitted in the news conference that he was “aware Valtteri crashed” but did not slow down, he was summoned to see the stewards.Bottas crashed as he ran wide out of the final corner trying to make up time, sliding into the barriers and causing considerable damage to his car. The Finn was released from the medical centre after a precautionary check-up.It was a blow for the Finn as he tries to prevent Hamilton putting the championship out of reach. But starting third, it is still a big task for Hamilton to make as much of a gain on Bottas as he needs to clinch his sixth title.Hamilton needs to finish on the podium at least and hope Bottas’ results go his way.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Red Bull’s Max Verstappen has been demoted from pole position at the Mexican Grand Prix by a penalty for ignoring warning flags.The Dutchman was given a three-place grid drop and will start fourth, behind Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel and Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton.Verstappen failed to slow down for yellow caution flags after a crash by Hamilton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas. The error cost Verstappen pole, as his first lap was also fastest of anyone.last_img read more

Bundesliga on StarTimes: A new coach leads Bayern into Klassiker

first_imgCharles Dickens’ famous quote “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times” is eerily apt to describe Bayern Munich’s situation ahead of this weekend’s Bundesliga Klassiker.“The best of times” because the match in the Allianz Arena offers the defending champions the best possible opportunity to bounce back from the humiliating 5-1 defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt on the weekend, with a victory against Borussia Dortmund.“The worst of times” because a day after the defeat in Frankfurt coach Niko Kovac was fired. His assistant Hansi Flick was given the job on an interim basis.Hansi FlickThe former Bayern midfielder’s task will not have been made any easier as three centre-backs have been ruled out. Jerome Boateng was sent off against Frankfurt and will miss at least one Bundesliga match, while Germany international Niklas Süle has been ruled out for most of the season after tearing his cruciate ligament. Bayern’s most expensive ever signing, Lucas Hernandez, is also sidelined for some weeks.Borussia Dortmund, meanwhile, go into the match buoyed by a 3-0 league victory against the only previously unbeaten team in the Bundesliga, Wolfsburg.That victory occurred just a few days after Dortmund came from behind to beat the log leaders Borussia Mönchengladbach 2-1 in a cup match.Against Wolfsburg, Lucien Favre welcomed back former Bayern defender Matts Hummels, who had missed some earlier matches with a stomach bug. Hummels, who earlier in the year was told that he no longer played a part in Germany coach Joachim Löw’s plans, could be back in the mix for an international recall if he continues his outstanding form.Another in-form player for Dortmund has been Julian Brandt, who scored both goals against Mönchengladbach. The midfielder who joined the black and yellows during summer from Bayer Leverkusen said that the victory against Wolfsburg was just what the club needed ahead of the big match.“That was a very, very strong sign,” the 23-year-old said.Favre will probably also be able to draw on Paco Alcácer for the match against Bayern, but there are some doubt about captain Marco Reus, who had to be substituted against Wolfsburg.A victory for the home side would see Bayern move ahead of Dortmund, who currently are second in the Bundesliga three points behind Mönchengladbach, while Bayern are fourth, a further point behind. History clearly favours Bayern, who have won the last five Klassiker at home, scoring an astonishing 22 goals and conceding just three.Football fans throughout Africa will be able to watch Der Klassiker live and exclusive on the StarTimes football channels.—last_img read more
