That’s what we’ve done every year.”With chassis being carried over to 2021 before big rule change in 2022 that will slow cars down, Hamilton believes the W11, which has taken all 13 pole positions and 11 race wins so far this season, could stand as not only Mercedes’ best-ever car but the greatest in F1’s history.“The whole car collectively, for sure, is the best car that we’ve built,” he said.“I think probably it will be the best car that we’ll ever have, I think, probably in the sport.” F1’s world champion hails the Mercedes team’s search for constant improvement after their winning of a record seventh successive constructors’ world title this year Last Updated: 05/11/20 7:32pm “What we have done is no coincidence. Valtteri (Bottas) and I are just a part of this incredible chain of people who are collectively working and all rowing in the same direction,” Hamilton told Sky Sports F1 after his win wrapped by“People will probably want to understand how we do it and I think it’s just continuing to set ridiculously high goals every year.“When it comes to the car, I remember we sat down in 2013 [when Hamilton joined] and I would always sit and speak to the guys on aero and talk about where our target is. There would be a dot and I’d say ‘well move that even higher’. And they were like, ‘yeah you’re right, let’s move it higher’. Lewis Hamilton believes Mercedes’ all-conquering 2020 car is the “best” they ever produced and the result of setting “ridiculously high goals” ahead of every season in search for improvement.Mercedes became the first time to win seven constructors’ championships in succession at last week’s Emilia-Romagna GP and their one-two result also confirmed only Hamilton or Valtteri Bottas can become 2020’s driver champion, assuring the team of a record-extending seventh world title double in a row too.Hamilton, who could clinch the drivers’ crown in Turkey next week, spoke glowingly about the “remarkable” team and motivation behind Mercedes’ success – and described being a part of it as a “completely unbelievable honour”.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – 0:57 Lewis Hamilton wins the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix as Mercedes clinch the Constructors’ Championship for a record seventh year in a row
Ireland scrum-half Conor Murray says they must improve to beat England at Twickenham | Rugby Union News
Murray began on the bench against Wayne Pivac’s side as Jamison Park-Gibson took the number nine jersey to make his first Test start.The Munster man was eventually brought on to win his 84th cap in the unfamiliar role of fly-half after injuries forced off captain Johnny Sexton and debutant Billy Burns.With head coach Farrell seeking to give opportunities to peripheral members of his squad, Murray offered a diplomatic response to losing his starting spot.“You’ve got to be realistic. Jamison’s been playing really well and he deserved the chance,” said Murray.
A single centimeter made all the difference for USC Track and Field two weekends ago in Nampa, Idaho.Competing among the best in the nation, junior Alitta Boyd was USC’s sole representative at the NCAA Division-I Indoor Championships on March 9 and 10.Weathering the storm · Senior Melissa Minderler took first place in the javelin at the Northdridge Invitational, despite tough weather. – Photo courtesy of Sports InformationBefore entering the meet, she had previously placed in long jump at Division I competitions such as the New Balance Collegiate Invitational and Texas A&M Invitational. Boyd jumped 6.18 meters, missing the cutoff for the finals by a centimeter.She was moved out of position by the University of Central Florida’s Sonnisha Williams, who clinched the spot at finals with a 6.19 meter jump during flight two. The men’s team did not compete indoors, and the women’s team was unable to qualify in other events. Robbed of a last stab at victory, the USC Trojans did not walk away with any championship wins at the NCAA finals.The indoor season might be over and done, but USC is still preparing for outdoors. Last weekend USC competed at the Northridge Invitational, but field conditions did not look favorable and USC pulled out for the majority of the meet.“The conditions were terrible, and the weather didn’t hold up,” USC coach Ron Allice said. “Outside of the hammer competition on Friday the majority of the team did not compete.”Though most of the Trojans track and field squad did not participate in last weekend’s meet, USC still managed to secure a win. Senior captain Marissa Minderler finished first in women’s javelin throw with a final distance of 40.98 meters. Minderler previously finished third at the Ben Brown Invitational at Long Beach State.Bad weather conditions might have prevented the Trojans from competing at full strength during last weekend’s meet, but they continue to prepare for the upcoming Trojan Invitational, taking place at USC’s Loker Stadium. The Trojans will not only be defending their home turf but will also be proving themselves against stiff competition from top-25 teams for the first time in the outdoor season.“This is the best track meet outside of the major conference meets,” Allice said of the Trojan Invitational. “Outside of those, there is no meet in the country that is bringing in the quality of teams that the Trojan Invitational does.” Opponents include Oregon, who won the NCAA Women’s Indoor Championship, as well as Texas A&M, who will be defending the men’s national title for the third year in a row.
