But Hamilton’s chances of wrapping up his seventh championship with three races to spare were still boosted on Saturday due to the fact he qualified three places ahead of ninth-placed Bottas, his sole title challenger, in the sister Mercedes. 28:41 Sky F1’s Ted Kravitz casts his eye across Saturday’s action in Istanbul. “They have a much quicker race car [Red Bull and Mercedes], that’s just the reality, but that doesn’t mean we can’t score a bunch of points. We are fighting for that third place in the Constructors’ and it’s a great opportunity with both cars starting at the front to pick up some big points.”Red Bull’s Max Verstappen certainly represents their biggest threat with the Dutchman starting between the two Racing Points in second place. Verstappen has only won once this year, at August’s 70th Anniversary GP at Silverstone, and was disappointed to miss out on pole having set the pace in every session up to Q3.“I think Lewis and Valtteri are a bit further down but I’m also starting now on the inside [of the grid] so that’s not very lovely,” said Verstappen. “But we’ll find out tomorrow.” – Advertisement – Lewis Hamilton starts from an unfamiliar grid position but remains on course to make F1 history by clinching a record-equalling seventh world title in Sunday morning’s Turkish GP.Live only on Sky Sports F1 and Main Event at the early time of 10.10am, with build-up from 8.30am, Hamilton starts from sixth place but will be champion for 2020 as long as team-mate Valtteri Bottas does not outscore him by eight or more points.- Advertisement – Buy a Sky Sports Day Pass for NOW TV to watch Sunday’s race coverage live.

The 2026 finals will be the first to have 48 teams in attendance.On Sunday, at the 7th meeting of the FIFA Council (formerly known as FIFA Executive Committee), the two bids were ratified to be voted on following the publication of the Bid Evaluation Report by the 2026 Bid Evaluation Task Force.In the unlikely event that the Congress decides not to choose either of the two candidates, FIFA will then launch a fresh procedure by inviting all interested member associations (outside the four already involved) in the second phase.Styled the ‘United Bid’, the candidacy of USA-Canada-Mexico says it potentially has 23 host cities, with 17 of these located in the USA. There are three in Canada and three in Mexico.Morocco’s candidacy is believed to be strong with support expected from a majority of African countries and the European confederation.USA hosted the FIFA World Cup in 1994, while Mexico hosted in 1970 and 1986. Canada has never hosted the World Cup but staged the Olympic Games in 1976, the Under-17 World Cup in 1987, the Under-20 World Cup in 2007 and the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2015.The 2022 FIFA World Cup finals will take place in Qatar.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and Member of the CAF Executive Committee, Mr. Amaju Melvin Pinnick, and the heads of the remaining 210 member associations of the world football-governing body, FIFA will today in Moscow decide the host candidate for the 2026 FIFA World Cup finals.All 211 member associations of FIFA will vote at the body’s 68th Congress in the Russian capital to choose between African candidate Morocco, and the joint bid of the USA, Canada and Mexico.Morocco is bidding for the fifth time to host the world’s biggest single-sport fiesta, and has launched a compact bid in which all host cities are within a radius of maximum two hours by air travel.last_img read more
