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 World Cup’s Finest with Redzonesports’ Anthony Gray

first_img FDJ’s ParionsSport launches sponsorship programme for French amateur football August 24, 2020 In The World Cup’s Finest we ask various individuals to delve into their own personal history of football’s quadrennial showpiece extravaganza, selecting a number of favourites as well as revealing what is their very first World Cup memory.Today Anthony Gray, Head of Football at Redzonesports.bet, tells us about priding his own abilities on Walter Zenga and a duo of Brazilian highlights, as well as recalling when a young Michael Owen unveiled his talents on the world stage.Favourite World Cup:PlayerWalter Zenga. By the time of the 1990 World Cup I fancied myself as a goalkeeper (incredibly I still do) and Walter Zenga was unbeaten in Italy’s first five games of the tournament. It was an enormous anti-climax when Zenga conceded in the semi-final, I was starting to consider him unbeatable.GoalMichael Owen (England v Argentina, 1998). I was working in a pet food factory in Wigan during the game and heard the goal on the radio rather than saw it, but Micheal Owen’s goal v Argentina immediately came to mind when I saw this question. It was exciting because England had taken the lead against a formidable opposition and looked well set to go deep into the tournament with a talented team, it’s also a simply fantastic goal.GameFrance v Brazil, 1986 (quarter-final). This game was so good that it was shown re-live on TV (in the days of 4 terrestrial channels) the following Christmas. This game was generally considered the game of the tournament plus it gave me one of my first experiences of a penalty shoot-out.TeamEngland, 1990. In 1990 England went to extra-time three times which was important to a school-kid with the threat of bedtime after football hanging over him. At that point I was free from doubt, regret and opinion as an England fan, so was able to enjoy the performances of the players that I assumed were the best men for the job.KitBulgaria, 1994. It lent itself nicely to the Adidas template of the time, which I was a big fan of. The same company were responsible for my favourite goalkeeping kit, the 1990 Black and Pink squared top, worn by Rene Higuita amongst others._________________________________________________________________First World Cup memory1 June 1986 (Brazil v Spain). The first game I remember watching in the World Cup was Brazil 1 Spain 0 early in the 1986 tournament, with Socrates scoring the only goal. From memory it was a controversial winner, I’d have been eager for Brazil to live up to their reputation, so wouldn’t have cared one bit.The World Cup’s Finest is to be a regular feature during the Russia World Cup, profiling a different individual each week day.
