Formula 1 / GP Turkey.- (Preview) Hamilton knocks on Schumacher’s door in Istanbul again

MADRID, 12 Nov. 2020 (Europa Press) –

The English driver Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) will have at the Turkish Grand Prix, the fourteenth round of the Formula 1 World Championship, his first opportunity to mathematically confirm his seventh title in the category and match the only one that has achieved it to date, the German Michael Schumacher.

With four races remaining to close the calendar, Hamilton faces his first ‘match ball’ in another championship that he has once again dominated with an iron fist, as well illustrated by the 85 points of advantage he has over his pursuer, Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes ).

Taking into account that the Finn can achieve a maximum of 78 points in the last three tests in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi, the Englishman will confirm his title if he wins the race this Sunday or also if he finishes second, as long as his teammate does not achieve the victory plus the extra point of the fastest lap. In any other combination, it is also worth having Bottas cut you seven points maximum.

Along with Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Rakkonen and Sergio Pérez, Hamilton is one of the four drivers on the current grid who know the Intercity Istanbul Park, unprecedented in F1 since 2011. After conquering Mugello, Nurburgring, Portimao and Imola, the Briton looks for the Record of victories in circuits that this year have been released or have returned to competition.

In the fight for the runner-up, the only one to which Bottas now virtually aspires, he has a 35-point advantage over Max Verstappen (Red Bull) after the fiasco in Imola of the Dutchman, who aspire to return to the charge.


At this time of the season, the most interesting fight is the one between Renault (135 points), McLaren (134) and Racing Point (134), separated by just one point, as even as it is relevant at the end of the season when the competition distributes economic prizes.

Daniel Ricciardo, with two podium finishes in the last three races, is driving Renault in this final stretch of the course and fueling the hope of Fernando Alonso, who will be his replacement next season. The Australian is now the fittest rider by far of those who populate the middle zone.

Carlos Sainz is also fully involved in this battle, committed to McLaren until the end as evidenced by his good run, the best of the season after finishing within the ‘Top 7’ in Germany, Portugal and Italy. The Madrilenian arrives at an unknown circuit warned by the low temperatures that, in principle, do not help his MLC35, which has suffered tire problems in cold conditions in recent races.

League of Spain today: revealed broken dressing room at FC Barcelona due to renewal and salary reduction | Spanish League

There are three days left for the classic FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid, a duel that, unlike other occasions, finds a couple of teams with small internal crises, originated by very different causes.

The visitor’s, Real Madrid, is clearly sporting. But that of the Catalan club has a complex and long-standing background: a dispute between the squad and the board over the salary issue.

It is worth remembering that President Josep Bartomeu and his Board of Directors decided on a salary reduction for all club employees of up to 30 percent, to face the economic crisis derived from the covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

The method chosen to communicate is the famous burofax (the one that Messi made famous to resign, a couple of months ago), which most players signed to make it clear that they would not negotiate under the same conditions as the rest of the employees. All except Ter Stegen, Lenglet and De Jong, who do agree to reduce their income.

Well, according to the newspaper Sport, that negotiation intersected with the renewal of contracts, and the dressing room quickly faced the reality of not being so united: “The extensions were carried out while other conversations are ongoing, some have been broken and There are some that have not even started. In the locker room, each player is following his path or “making war on his own,” as noted internally, “says the media.

In fact, “In a part of the dressing room, however, the attitude of one of the captains, Gerard Piqué, of signing the document, but expanding his relationship with Barça …” They do not understand how he renews but when Time leads other claims against the directive, the claim for the image rights of the documentary ‘Match Day’.

Sport says that some players doubt that if they agree to a renewal today, with the reduction of salary, then they do not respect the initial salaries and also, with a possible motion of censure ahead, they do not believe that this Board of Directors is the correct one to negotiate.

“In a dressing room with 24 professional players, along with those of the subsidiary, the points of view are very different. The null ‘feeling’ with Bartomeu and the way of acting of the Barcelona executives has increased the disparity of criteria. Each footballer has responded individually to the club’s proposal and the renovations are on the way to being announced in a trickle, as happened with the first four on Tuesday night. “

The source adds that with veterans the renewals would include offers of positions in the club after retirement, but the reality is that no one takes anyone’s word. And those fissures, unfortunately, are not so easy to overcome on the court.
