Dovizioso concerned by Ducati performance at peak grip

Dovizioso concerned by Ducati performance at peak gripDucati MotoGP rider Andrea Dovizioso has expressed his concern over his bike's lack of performance when the tyres offer peak grip, despite an impressive podium in Motegi. Dovizioso charged late in the race on used rubber to put second-placed Fabio Quartararo under pressure and ultimately complete the podium within a second and a half of race winner Marc Marquez. But with Quartararo struggling for tyres and Marquez managing fuel in the end, Dovizioso was left to rue a lack of performance in the first half of the race - most of which he spent stuck behind Petronas Yamaha's Franco Morbidelli. "When the grip was good from everybody, I wasn't fast enough," Dovizioso said. "I was losing too much in the middle of the corners, I couldn't be faster than Morbidelli. "Lap by lap the tyre dropped and in that case my bike was better and better, I was able to brake better and my laptime improved. "Really happy about the la..

Patriots reportedly acquire receiver Mohamed Sanu from Falcons for second-round draft pick

Patriots reportedly acquire receiver Mohamed Sanu from Falcons for second-round draft pick The Atlanta Falcons are trading wide receiver Mohamed Sanu to the New England Patriots in exchange for a second-round pick according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Schefter stated that the Patriots have been attempting to trade for Sanu dating back to the 2019 NFL Draft. Sanu, 30, has 33 receptions for 313 yards and a touchdown this season. The Falcons were loaded at the position with Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and others so Sanu became expendable. Atlanta (1-6) has apparently chosen to be sellers at the NFL trade deadline. Sanu was taken in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Rutgers by the Cincinnati Bengals.

British F3 to adopt IndyCar-style ‘shark fin’

British F3 to adopt IndyCar-style 'shark fin'The BRDC British F3 car will run an IndyCar-style ‘shark fin’ device positioned in front of the driver in 2020, but won’t switch to a halo next season. IndyCar introduced the shark fin – which is around three inches tall and deflects debris away from the drivers head – for the 2019 season in lieu of a halo, and it has already proved effective. It will introduce the halo-equivalent aeroscreen developed by Red Bull Advanced Technologies for 2020. BRDC British F3 introduced its current Tatuus-Cosworth car for the 2016 season, and has been in discussion with the FIA to become an official Regional F3 Championship since those rules were introduced for this season. That would require a switch to a car with a halo. But the championship is yet to secure that status, and in the meantime Jonathan Palmer, chief executive of Motor Sport Vision, which operates the championship, is keen to keep costs down for the teams. “The key thing is we we..

Bill Belichick provides memorable moment during Patriots’ blowout win over the Jets

Bill Belichick provides memorable moment during Patriots' blowout win over the JetsBelichick appeared to take special delight in the Patriots' 33-0 win over the Jets Bill Belichick provided the most memorable moment during the second half of the New England Patriots' 33-0 dismantling of the New York Jets on "Monday Night Football." With the game well in hand, the Patriots elected to punt on fourth down from the Jets' 33 with just under 10 minutes left. Belichick, in an effort to give punter Jake Bailey more room to operate, intentionally let the play clock run. But the Jets declined the penalty, which led to New England intentionally going offsides on their second attempt to punt. But Jets head coach Adam Gase again declined the penalty, which led to Belichick's extended smile on the sideline. Belichick can’t hide the smile!! 😆 pic.twitter.com/3aVdaKWVuD — Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) October 22, 2019 The smile was also the product of Belichick milking more o..
