DAMS and Ticktum furious as disqualification hands Ilott sprint race victory, plus F3 penalties

Many hours after Dan Ticktum had crossed the finish line to take a dominant win in the FIA Formula 2 sprint race at the Italian Grand Prix, that victory was snatched away by the FIA stewards, awarding the win to championship leader Callum Ilott.

There were questions very soon after the chequered flag fell as Ticktum stopped just after the Rettifilio chicane in an attempt to ensure that DAMS could provide a fuel sample to the stewards.

However, a reported leak in the fuel tank was the cause of this lack of fuel as everyone else was able to make it back to the pits, and provide a sample with no problems. As a result, Ticktum was disqualified from the results to the anger of him and his DAMS team.

In a statement by DAMS, Team Principal Francois Sicard said: “This fuel tank problem has been known to Read the rest

US Open champion Dominic Thiem still has not slept since his historic victory Sunday evening.

Pierre Gasly secures maiden victory in incident packed Italian Grand Prix

In a race marred with issues as Pierre Gasly took an unconventional win for Scuderia AlphaTauri. For the first time this year, no Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One team or Aston Martin Red Bull Racing cars made it to the podium.

Instead the podium consisted of winner Pierre Gasly, second place Carlos Sainz Jr. and in third Lance Stroll, in what we can only describe as a mind blowing race.

The first lap brought the most drama a first corner has so far this year; Valtteri Bottas, who started second, had a poor start and over the course of the lap, found himself down to sixth. 

Lando Norris, who started sixth, powered himself to third, behind team-mate Carlos Sainz Jr., Alexander Albon tangled with Pierre Gasly going into the first chicane, sending the Thai driver down to fifteenth. Kevin Magnussen picked up wing damage and had to … Read the rest

Fifth seed Alexander Zverev got off to a perfect start on Sunday in the US Open final, but second seed Dominic Thiem won’t go away quietly. Zverev leads Thiem 6-2, 6-4, 4-6 as both men pursue their first Grand Slam title.

Thiem aims to become the first player in the Open Era to rally from two sets down in a US Open final. In 25 of the past 27 years, the player who took the opening set has gone on to lift the title in New York. The winner of this match will become the 55th Grand Slam champion of the Open Era and the 150th of all time.

Zverev, 23, looks to become the youngest Grand Slam winner since Juan Martin del Potro (20) at the 2009 US Open. A win would also make him the first German winner of a major championship since Boris Becker at the 1996 … Read the rest
