Advert | Become a Supporter & go ad-free The 2022 season, however, had a strong crop of rookies running at the front of the points and enough experienced drivers for that to be proven on merit.

In total, 12 different drivers claimed race wins across the season and six succeeded in claiming a pole position. Here’s the ten that stood out, to RaceFans. 10 – Richard Verschoor – Trident last year. Which might be unfair, to weigh his performances in a race-by-race seat higher than those in a relatively secure position, but he also did not quite pull out the same stand-out performances as he put together at times during his disrupted 2021 campaign.

"There it is!" he says, as tackle Daron Payne swats the ball. "I see you, Big Payne!" One at a time, the linemen put their weight into a padded sled to lift it like a blocker, drop it with a thud, then jump to bat a volleyball Zgonina tosses from about 10 yards away. Comical as it is at times to watch 300-pound linemen lunge for volleyballs, the drill has a purpose. On Sunday, Payne deflected a pass that cornerback Kendall Fuller then intercepted to seal Washington's victory over the Atlanta Falcons. "I said on the sidelines, 'Way to go; you're taking the drill to the field,' and the guys started laughing," Zgonina said. "They don't want to hear that." Washington's … [Read more...] about With Jonathan Allen and Daron Payne, Commanders may have NFL’s best DT duo

Listen to this article Throughout his F1 career, Perez has carved out a reputation as being one of the strongest drivers when it comes to tyre management, particularly during his stints with Sauber and Force India. But Perez admitted after the season finale in Abu Dhabi that he had struggled more with this year’s Pirelli tyres, which changed to 18-inch wheel rims and were designed to allow drivers to push more. “I struggled a bit with these tyres this year, in terms of managing the tyres in the race,” Perez said. “So hopefully that can be something that we will improve for next year, and generally just be a bit stronger.” Perez’s tyre struggles proved costly in Abu Dhabi as he was forced to switch to a two-stop strategy after taking too much out of his front-right tyre in the early part of the race.

When the new beginning ended, the television cameras found Tyler Adams absorbing the disappointment. The 23-year-old captain of the U.S. men's national soccer team, the youngest of anyone carrying that title at this World Cup, sat with his legs crossed and head down. Teammates and coaches came by, one at a time, to kneel and encourage him. Adams remained in the middle of the field, thinking and hurting for several minutes, until an American teammate and Dutch opponent extended their arms and helped Adams to his feet. It was the final, humbling scene of a spirited American recovery at this tournament. With a 3-1 victory, the Netherlands ousted the U.S. during the round of 16 on Saturday. No one is hustling to schedule a parade after this outcome, but for a program writhing near rock bottom and enduring ridicule four years ago, this run felt joyous. The incremental progress was clear, but more than that, the players performed in a matter that indicates they are on a path to immense … [Read more...] about Don’t view the USMNT’s loss as the end.

Fans on Reddit have turned against Kanye West, transforming a subreddit dedicated to him into a page promoting Holocaust education within hours of Ye's most recent antisemitic comments. r/Kanye, a 700,000-member space on Reddit where fans once discussed Ye's music, fashion and other endeavors, has been flooded with posts providing information about the persecution of Jews during the Holocaust and denouncing antisemitism. The page offered a spontaneous show of support for Jewish Americans and a visual representation of pushback against West, who has legally changed his name to Ye, after weeks of his antisemitic remarks. It came after Ye on Thursday said he liked Adolf Hitler and later tweeted an image of a swastika. "As a Jew and an early Kanye fan," one commenter posted, "I never looked in this sub[reddit] until this morning and I saw all the holocaust remembrance posts. I'm in . . . tears right now. Thank you for standing up for us." The posts include Holocaust-related … [Read more...] about Reddit users turn Kanye West page into a Holocaust awareness forum
