Story So Far2.30pm Formula 1 welcomes back another “awesome” track this weekend with the return of the Turkish GP – where championship history could be made and seasons could be defined as 2020 enters its final sprint.- Advertisement – The Turkish Grand Prix8.30am10.10am Date and showOn AirSession start Notebook1pm The Englishman is 85 points clear of his only remaining title rival Valtteri Bottas with a maximum of 104 points left to play for and so will become the sport’s second seven-time champion if he finishes Sunday’s race ahead of his Mercedes team-mate.Bottas, meanwhile, must outscore Hamilton by at least eight points to take the title fight on to the following round in Bahrain – so a race victory and fastest lap bonus point would be enough. Practice Two11.45am12pm Go on board with 2010 polesitter Mark Webber for a lap of the fast and very challenging Istanbul Park ahead of the Turkish GP’s return in November The unique triple left-hander at Turn 8 is a particular highlight of a track which, like the other F1 2020 returnees of the Nurburgring and Imola, is old-school in its design with plenty of fierce changes of direction.Sky F1’s Karun Chandhok gave an in-depth guide ahead of the Turkish GP, while Ricciardo admitted: “I can’t wait for Turkey. It’s an awesome circuit and a lot of fun to drive.“It’s going to be pretty cool in a modern Formula 1 car with some fast corners and long periods of time on the throttle. I think it will provide good racing as overtaking should be more straightforward [than Imola]. I think it’s a pretty complete circuit, so I’m certainly looking forward to that.“I think full beans around there is going to be awesome. Turn 8 is a great corner, but so is Turn 1, the downhill, unsighted left. It’s really cool!”The TV timesWith a three-hour time difference between the UK and Turkey, it’s the earliest start times of the reshaped season this weekend for live coverage on Sky Sports F1.

Sky F1’s David Croft says he expects Lewis Hamilton to sign a new contract with Mercedes, despite question marks remaining over his future in the sport There are plenty of other fierce battles to keep an eye out for through the weekend – the closest of which for third in the constructors’ standings with Renault, McLaren and Racing Point split by just a single point.It’s also been tough to call who will finish fourth behind Hamilton, Bottas and Max Verstappen in the Drivers’ Championship all season, with Daniel Ricciardo currently ahead on 95 points but other midfield rivals – namely Charles Leclerc and Sergio Perez – well in contention.The trackThere may have only been seven F1 races at the Istanbul Park circuit – which made its debut in 2005 before a lack of funding prevented Grands Prix post-2011 – but it quickly became, and still is now, a driver’s favourite.
Women’s World Cup 2019 preview: What to know when USA takes on Thailand Argentina had lost all six of its previous World Cup games, conceding a whopping 33 goals, but more than held its own against a side that sits 30 places higher in the world rankings.Yui Hasegawa wasted a golden opportunity to seal maximum points in the second half for Japan, which will need to improve dramatically if it is to overcome Scotland in the next group game on Friday. Related News Japan’s World Cup campaign got off to a frustrating start as Argentina held the favored side to a 0-0 draw in Group D on Monday.Asako Takakura’s team has reached the final in the last two editions of the tournament — winning it in 2011 — but a third consecutive appearance looks unlikely if this insipid display in Paris is anything to go by. ¡PUNTAZO!A famous result for @Argentina! #ARGJPN | #FIFAWWC pic.twitter.com/ysvSDgVr45— FIFA Women’s World Cup (@FIFAWWC) June 10, 2019Japan dominated possession in the first half but was largely kept at arm’s length by Argentina’s backline. The closest chance came after nine minutes when Narumi Miura flashed wide of Vanina Correa’s right-hand post from a promising position. The Argentina goalkeeper cut out Yuika Sugasawa’s back-post header soon after with a number of players poised to pounce inside the 6-yard box.Correa was called into action five minutes after the restart, pawing Kumi Yokoyama’s long-range drive into the path of Sugasawa, who blazed over from an acute angle. Hasegawa then had the clearest chance of the game shortly before the hour mark, skewing horribly wide from 12 yards when it looked easier to score.That miss appeared to deflate Japan, with Argentina breaking out of its own half to cause its opponents some nervous moments in defense.Neither side was able to find a winner in the closing stages, though, with Argentina finishing as the happier team having claimed its first ever World Cup point.
