The coolest and most interesting sponsorship deals in F1 history

Formula 1 has had a long relationship with sponsorship deals. The sport wouldn’t have grown into the huge behemoth that it is today without its teams being able to sell space on their cars for brands to add their logos.

The practice began with Lotus in the 1960s but soon spread right across the paddock. Before then, cars were painted in their national colours. For example, the Ferrari vehicles were painted in their iconic scarlet red, while teams from the UK used British racing green. After the introduction of sponsors, the colour often reflected the branding of the team willing to pay the most.

Over the years, there have been many brands that have come and gone from Formula 1, including major car manufacturers like Toyota and tire suppliers like Bridgestone. Among them, there have been plenty of mundane deals that you’ll likely forget about very quickly. But every now … Read the rest

(Video) Ex-Red discusses Liverpool’s Premier League fixture list ahead of the 2022/23 campaign

Neil Mellor has claimed Liverpool must ‘improve’ against ‘their rivals’ in order to be as competitive as possible next season.

The Reds failed to beat any of the other three sides that finished in the top four in the Premier League last term, drawing all six games, and were pipped to the title by a single point by Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will face Pep Guardiola’s side in October and in April in the new campaign and Mellor has already labelled those games as ‘massive’.

Liverpool linked with shock ‘hijack’ move for 17-year-old Manchester United starlet with one year left on his deal

Liverpool and Manchester United haven’t entered into a successful transfer negotiation since 1964 but that could soon come to an end.

As reported by Dinesh Kumar: we are reportedly ‘trying to hijack a deal for Alejandro Garnacho (already negotiating extension with United), but face a lot of competition’.

The 17-year-old’s current deal ends next summer and if we attempt to make a deal now, it may be a cheaper way to get him to move to Anfield.

All reasons why you should purchase off-plan properties in Dubai

Dubai city has quickly become one of the most progressive and upscale cities in the world. It is almost unbelievable that at first, Dubai was a mere oil-based economy. 

Currently, the Emirate is a thriving business hub that strives to take advantage of the country’s geographical address and versatility of the population.

Resultantly, the Emirate has gained a spot among the most iconic global commercial sectors. Even though the city is definitely a highly beneficial destination for business purposes, there is something for everyone.

An aspect that has earned the interest of international investors recently is diverse opportunities and flexibility in the real estate market, particularly investments in off-plan projects. 

However, for someone who is unaware of this matter, it is natural to wonder what makes purchasing off-plan properties in Dubai so special.

Jurgen Klopp is said to have fallen ‘in love’ with the prospect of adding Darwin Nunez to his Liverpool squad after reviewing footage of the striker’s efforts in the Champions League group stages and against Ajax in the round of 16.

This comes courtesy of a report from Paul Joyce for The Times, with the highly-rated Uruguayan international going on to score two goals across both legs against the Merseysiders.

Pole-sitter Charles Leclerc lost the lead at the start but regained it when the leading Red Bull of Max Verstappen pitted on Lap 19. One lap later, Leclerc’s race went up in a puff of smoke and he crawled back to the pits to retire. This would be Ferrari’s second retirement of the race as Carlos Sainz stopped with a hydraulic failure on Lap 9.

Leclerc’s DNF left Verstappen ahead of Sergio Perez (who took the fastest lap) in a one-two for Red Bull, with Mercedes driver Russell promoted into the final podium place, having started fifth.

Ex-Red explains why Darwin Nunez ‘will be a great signing’ for Liverpool and tips Bobby Firmino to remain a vital player for Jurgen Klopp

Former Liverpool player Michael Thomas has explained why he believed Darwin Nunez will be ‘a great signing’ for the Reds.

The 22-year-old Uruguay international is reportedly set to arrive on Merseyside next week in order to complete his transfer from Portuguese outfit Benfica.

He’s expected to sign a six-year-deal at the club and although he may prove to spearhead the Anfield outfit’s attack for the foreseeable future, Thomas still believes Bobby Firmino will have a ‘role’ to play at the club next season.

“Darwin Nunez has had a really good season for Benfica and all the top teams are looking at him. He will be a great signing,” Thomas told CaughtOffside.

“He has pace, strength and can finish, but let’s not forget he can link up play. The one thing I would say is that he is not a player of the same ilk as a Firmino, who will pick Read the rest
