first-round prospect out of Nebraska, h from corse178's blog

Renault have admitted they would be interested in re-signing Fernando Alonso in the future - but are committed to putting their faith in youth in 2016. Cheap Jordans From China . Alonso was Renaults star driver for most of their previous stint in charge of the Enstone team, winning both of his world championships in the French manufacturers colours in 2005 and 2006.The car maker launched their comeback as a team owner in Paris on Wednesday and unveiled one of the grids most youthful driver line-ups in Kevin Magnussen and Jolyon Palmer. Alonso has since returned to McLaren and is contracted until the end of 2017, but Ghosn told Spanish newspaper AS: Would I like to sign Alonso? Sure.But Ghosn admitted any decision to entice the former champion back at some point would have to be made by the race teams managing director Cyril Abiteboul and racing director Frederic Vasseur.Of course I would like [to sign him] but it is not my responsibility, it is the Formula 1 team who has that responsibility and support their decisions, he said.During these years in Formula 1 we have made many friends, we have met many talented young drivers and Fernando is one of the most talented. He is definitely one of the best drivers of the current Formula 1. Craig Slater reports from Paris where Renault have unveiled their new car, the RS16, and also drivers Kevin Magnussen and Jolyon Palmer Renault go for youthThe decision to jettison Pastor Maldonado in favour of former McLaren driver Magnussen means Renault enter the season with the least experienced driver pairing currently on the grid. Britains Palmer is a rookie while Magnussen made just 19 starts for McLaren.Palmer, like Maldonado, signed his race deal with Lotus before the Renault takeover had gone through - but the new owners have stuck by the 25-year-old former GP2 champion.It is very interesting that Palmer has kept his position although he was appointed by the previous owners, whereas Magnussen has been brought in to replace Pastor Maldonado, noted Sky Sports News HQs Craig Slater.It is a big year for Palmer, they have shown faith in him by retaining him, but this could be a very coveted seat in a few years time.During Renaults protracted takeover of the Lotus team, it was thought the French firm would want a local driver in place for 2016 - with Jean-Eric Vergne and, before his departure to Haas, Romain Grosjean two possible options. Asked if they will revisit the subject again in the years ahead, Ghosn told SSNHQ: First we want drivers who help us win - thats the most important thing. The selection of the citizenship of the driver will be left with the person in charge of the team because it is part of the levels he has - choosing the driver, the car, the technology, the engine - in order to get the results. Kevin Magnussen says hes delighted to be returning to F1 after being officially confirmed as a driver for Renaults new works team in 2016 Magnussens career savedWhile Palmer has received an instant vote of confidence, Magnussen admitted at the launch that his F1 career would likely have already been over at the age of 23 had Renault not signed him.Two years out would have been the end, he said. If you are world champion or something, you might be able to [come back] but in my position, being out for two years would have been the end of my Formula 1 career.The Dane was appointed by McLaren as Jenson Buttons team-mate for the 2014 season but was then demoted to reserve driver following Alonsos arrival and was dropped altogether by the team at the end of last season. Could Alonso return one day?Provided Alonso sees out his McLaren contract, the two-time champion will be 36 years old by the end of 2017 and a veteran of 16 seasons in F1. Although speculation lingers that the Spaniard could yet take a sabbatical this year if McLaren-Honda do not deliver a breakthrough in pre-season testing, Alonso has stressed his commitment to the cause and tweeted earlier this week: Preseason tests are coming in few weeks! Finally! I had one month training as hard as ever, working to really enjoy this season!McLaren face a long road back to the front after slumping to ninth in the Constructors Championship last year, but Renault are also aware their ultimate race and title-winning ambitions are unlikely to be realised in the short term as they grapple with their own hybrid engine deficiencies. The F1 Gossip Column All the latest from the rumour mill and social media ahead of the 2016 season Ghosn has set the target of claiming regular podium finishes within three years, but Abiteboul vowed we have no intention to make up the numbers.Renaults commitment to winning in F1 means plenty of drivers with similar ambitions will be closely monitoring their progress over the next season or two.I think we have learned that Renault are back as serious players and aim to compete for wins and championships in the medium term, concluded Slater.The first Barcelona test starts on Monday February 22 and the Sky Sports F1 Digital team will be providing live commentary from dawn until dusk on all four days of both Barcelona tests while Sky Sports News HQ will also deliver live updates from trackside.

"Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October.

Most important, perhaps, it went off without a hitch. Organizers poked a little fun at the now-infamous opening ceremony gaffe that saw only four out of five snowflakes open up into rings, leaving the Olympics logo one ring short. . The Olympic champion curler and TSN curling analyst immediately went online to look at the Halls long list of honoured members. Thats when the enormity of the honour sunk in. FRISCO, Texas --?Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory has won the appeal of his suspension and will be banned for only the first four games of the 2016 season, a source confirmed to ESPNs Dan Graziano on Sunday.The NFL initially announced in February that Gregory would serve a four-game ban for violating its substance abuse policy. But after it was revealed in July that Gregory had violated the policy again (either by failing or missing a test), he was facing the possibility of having the suspension extended to 10 games.The NFL has not yet provided the second-year Cowboys pass-rusher with official notice that his appeal succeeded, a source told ESPNs Ed Werder. Agent Deryk Gilmore filed the appeal, but there was never an actual hearing on the matter, the source said.The Fort Worth Star-Telegram first reported Gregorys reduced suspension.A four-game suspension does not mean Gregory will be back with the Cowboys on Oct. 3. The team placed him on the reserve/did not report list at the start of training camp, and the source told Werder that Gregory continues to receive inpatient treatment at a drug rehabilitation facility.Sources told Werder that Gregorys?latest commitment to sobriety played a significant role in the NFLs decision to keep his suspension to four games.Gregory would be eligible to play Oct. 9 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Defensivee end DeMarcus Lawrence, who led the Cowboys with eight sacks in 2015, also began his four-game suspension Saturday for violating the substance abuse policy. Wholesale Cheap Jordans From China. The Cowboys have remained supportive of Gregory and have a locker for him at The Star, their new practice facility. The Cowboys biggest need remains at pass-rusher, and Lawrence and Gregory would bolster that group.At the 2015 NFL scouting combine, Gregory tested positive for marijuana, which put him in the leagues drug program. Considered a first-round prospect out of Nebraska, he fell to the second round, where the Cowboys selected him with the 60th overall pick.The Cowboys and Gregory agreed that he would have a personal handler with him during the season to help him cope with issues related to anxiety.Gregory played in 12 games as a rookie and did not record a sack. He suffered a high-ankle sprain in the season opener against the New York Giants and missed the next four games. Cowboys coaches credited him with 11 tackles and 16 quarterback pressures to go along with one tackle for loss.Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain will miss the first 10 games of the season for violating the substance abuse policy, but his return to the team at all seems unlikely. Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Camo China NFL Jerseys Black China NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet China Womens NFL Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Hoodies Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '
