The retro livery will mark McLaren’s tribute to Gulf’s timeless design while reflecting a racing connection that began in the days of team founder Bruce McLaren.

The team will carry Gulf’s racing blue colourway alongside an orange stripe, based closely on Gulf’s classic design, … Read the rest

Alex Bowman leads Hendrick sweep in Drydene 400

It was a Hendrick Motorsports masterclass in the NASCAR Cup SeriesDrydene 400 at Dover International Speedway. The team’s quartet of drivers Alex Bowman, Kyle Larson, William Byron, and Chase Elliott spent much of Sunday’s race running in the top five, with three of them leading a combined 382 of 400 laps. By the end, Bowman came out on top.

Last week’s winner Martin Truex Jr. and Joe Gibbs Racing team-mate Denny Hamlin started on the front row. Elliott failed pre-race inspection twice and was sent to the back for the second week in a row, while Ryan Newman did so for unapproved adjustments. Josh Berry, making his Cup début in place of Justin Haley, also dropped back as his substitute duties count as a driver change.

Stages #1 and 2

(Video) ‘Nobody is coming back…’ – Klopp issues worrying injury update on two Liverpool starters

Jurgen Klopp blunted the mood slightly with his injury update on Diogo Jota and Ozan Kabak in his post-match presser, confirming that the pair would not be available for selection for the rest of the season.

It would, however, appear that the injuries are relatively minor compared to the long-term issues that are currently sidelining the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.

It’s a huge loss ahead of what will be two pivotal final league games as we chase Champions League qualification – a potentially welcome reward in what has fundamentally been a challenging (to say the least) season; perhaps the most challenging in the German’s reign.

Considering how well the Turk on loan from Schalke has performed since his winter window switch, we hope that his injury doesn’t prevent a potential move to the club. That is if it was being considered by those in the recruitment … Read the rest

Video: Luis Suarez scores dramatic winner for Atletico Madrid to put them on verge of La Liga title

What on Earth is going on in La Liga? Luis Suarez has just scored the goal which puts Atletico Madrid on the verge of winning the title, when a few minutes prior it looked as though Real would win it.

With Real Madrid leading by a goal, with Nacho having found the back of the net, Atletico Madrid knew that they needed to score, but it was their opponents, Osasuna, who got on the scoresheet.

With 15 minutes to go in the contest, Atletico looked as though they were going to surrender the rival to their city rivals, but Renan Lodi pulled one back to give them hope.

A draw will have put Atletico level on points with Real heading into the final day, but Los Blancos have the superior head-to-head record, having beaten them 2-0 back in December.

Koeman talks about his future and Messi’s continuity following Celta loss

Barcelona fell to defeat at home against Celta Vigo courtesy of a last-minute winner from Santi Mina, taking their winless tally to four games in a row. No more than three weeks ago, this team were genuine title contenders and had a shot of going on top with a win against Granada. Alas, it was not to be. Not that day, not today, not this season.

There will be a lot of questions after this game, on Ronald Koeman’s future, on Lionel Messi’s future, on the inevitable team revamp needed, and much more. The manager was asked about several of these in his post-game presser.

Naturally, it started with his future at the club, which hangs in the balance. He replied with a statement from the past, saying, “My future? That’s not a question for me.”

Next in line were questions on Messi, who could have very well played his … Read the rest

Amazon Continues Push Into Sports activities With Nationwide Ladies’s Soccer League On Twitch

In these modern times barely any particular person might be amazed at on-line casino video games. Gamers for Bayer Leverkusen, Hoffenheim, Leipzig and Mainz have agreed to give up part of their salaries as the Bundesliga stays on hiatus. Now, I don’t suggest that you just discover a course the place they use non permanent greens plenty of the time. However, there’s no purpose why you may’t imagine a narrower fairway inside the confines of the real fairway and a smaller inexperienced, maybe an 8-yard diameter circle across the flag, and imagine you’re taking part in on a course like Harbour City. The good news is that if you happen to narrowly miss your imagined fairway or inexperienced, you may still be on the true one.

Austin Cindric dominates final stage, wins Drydene 200

Austin Cindric is the first NASCAR Xfinity Series driver to hit three wins in 2021. After working his way through the field for much of Saturday’s Drydene 200 at Dover International Speedway, he took the lead with 51 laps to go and drove off to the victory.

Daniel Hemric and Darlington winner Justin Allgaier started on the front row while Cindric, who was involved in a final-lap wreck last week, was mired back in sixteenth. Zane Smith started at the back ninth in his first Xfinity start since 2019 as he was filling in for Justin Haley, who was out due to COVID-19 protocol.

Hemric led the first lap before Allgaier took the lead and dominated the entire first stage. The segment featured two cautions: a competition yellow on lap 22 and a lap 33 wreck between Riley Herbst and Truck Series points leader John Hunter Nemechek, … Read the rest

Liverpool could secure second major summer signing if Reds are prepared to do one thing – report

Liverpool will have to cover Florian Neuhaus’ release clause if they wish to sign the midfielder in the upcoming window.

This comes from SportBILD (via Sport Witness), who claim that the Reds would have to cough up €40m to secure the services of the rumoured target.

With Gini Wijnaldum set to part ways with the club in the summer, after talks to extend his stay at Anfield fell through, Jurgen Klopp’s men are considered likely to recruit a replacement come the season end.

At 30-years-old, one can certainly understand why the Liverpool hierarchy may be somewhat reluctant to meet the Dutchman’s exact demands – whatever they were.

Club chief admits Premier League newcomers could sell two star players to Man United and Arsenal

You would hope that players will stick with a promoted team after an outstanding season in the Championship, but Norwich are turning into a yo-yo club and some of their better players have been here before.

They stormed the Championship so there will be a hope that they can take that momentum and secure survival next year, but a report from Goal has suggested that they may lose Max Aarons and Emi Buendia.

Admittedly it’s not an outcome that they are pushing for, but they indicated that the Sporting Director has admitted that both players will be allowed to go if the price is right.

Aarons has been linked with various teams but Man United need to add a new option at right back to compete with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and it would make sense if they were a more attack-minded player to give them a different option.
