Ricciardo wins in Azerbaijan


That is not how you drive". It was an extraordinary performance from Stroll, the son of a billionaire, who faced heavy criticism earlier in the season. This damaged both cars - loosening further the head-rest in Hamilton's auto so severely that he was ordered to pit on safety grounds for repairs - and caused Vettel to lose his temper by pulling alongside Hamilton and then turning into him.

Burling, Team New Zealand reach match point in America's Cup


New Zealand, a small, sailing-mad island nation, will no doubt be holding its breath. Spithill's father, Arthur, joked to the Herald "thank goodness we only have to win six straight races this time". But things could change if New Zealand triumph as the winners decide the format of the next cup and the Kiwis are the only team not to have signed up to the deal. Read More »

LaVar Ball in talks to appear on Monday Night Raw

At 6-foot-6, Ball is tall for his position, like Johnson was, and similarly heralded for his brilliant passing and ability to push the pace and run the fast break.

Lonzo Ball introduced as 'new face of the Lakers' by Magic Johnson

The Lakers introduced their newest rookie to the public on Friday, setting up high expectations for guard Lonzo Ball before he's played a single pro game. But hey, I'm sure LaVar will have something to say about that. We will never know. "I ain't tryin' to get hurt". After comparing his own son to the league's first-ever unanimous MVP in Steph Curry, the undisputed Michael Jordan, LaVar pulled his greatest stroke of marketing genius magic-like that pun, eh!-in doubling down ...

Vettel "disgraced himself", says furious Hamilton

Hamilton led the race until being forced to pit to replace a headrest that had come loose, but the events that preceded that setback - several Safety Car deployments for debris, which Hamilton thought had been mishandled, and then a freakish incident with Vettel in which the Ferrari driver rear-ended Hamilton's Mercedes before a restart, and then deliberately ran into the side of the Briton's car in apparent retaliation for Hamilton slowing in front of him - left Hamilton more irate.

Formula One: Daniel Ricciardo wins chaotic Azerbaijan Grand Prix

The straight fight between Hamilton and Vettel was first interrupted by Toro Rosso-Renault's Daniil Kvyat having to stop on track due to a technical failure on lap 11, which brought out the safety vehicle.
