New footage proves green flag during Sebastian Vettel overtake

Sebastian Vettel

New footage from Sebastian Vettel's Red Bull car shows the German did not commit an offence while passing Jean-Eric Vergne during the Brazilian GP.Ferrari had asked for clarification from the FIA over whether the new world champion had passed the Frenchman's Toro Rosso in a no-overtaking zone.

The retrospective 20-second penalty for any offence would have seen Vettel lose his world title to Fernando Alonso.Vettel won his third consecutive F1 drivers' title at Interlagos on Sunday.Ferrari's request for clarification arose after videos had appeared on the internet which appeared to show Vettel still under yellow flags when he made the overtaking manoeuvre.

But the previously unavailable in-car feed has revealed a marshal waving a green flag - showing overtaking was allowed - that had been obscured until now by television graphics.Although the dashboard display on the German's car still shows he is in a yellow-flag caution zone - in which overtaking is forbidden - drivers have been told by the sport's governing body, the FIA, to respond to the most recent change in trackside indication they have seen.

A 20-second punishment would have seen Vettel demoted to eighth place at Interlagos and Ferrari's Fernando Alonso clinch the world championship by one point.The footage from Vettel's car was not broadcast on television during the race.

It was one of the video feeds made available to the BBC at the race, but was not available until now as it was in transit back from Brazil.At full speed, the footage is still difficult to interpret, but slowed down, the marshal, situated shortly before the bridge, with the green flag is now clearly visible.

The FIA was aware of the green flag, so did not investigate the manoeuvre during the race.After receiving a response from the FIA detailing the events, Ferrari said on Friday that it "considers the matter closed".(http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/20561954)

Boxeo : Andrew Flintoff beats Richard Dawson on boxing debut

Andrew Flintoff and Richard Dawson

Former England cricket captain Andrew Flintoff climbed off the canvas to win a points decision over American Richard Dawson on his heavyweight boxing debut.The 34-year-old, who retired from cricket in September 2010, was floored by a short left early in the second.

Flintoff was the busier fighter in four scrappy two-minutes rounds though and ended 39-38 ahead on the scorecard."You talk about the Ashes and things but as a personal achievement, this is the best," Flintoff told BoxNation.

Flintoff admitted that his first fight may also be his last however, saying that "we'll see how we go.""It's not natural to me, I've had to work so hard," he added."The feeling of being in there and winning at the end, I can't believe it but I'm not pretending to be something I'm not."

The ex-Lancashire all-rounder was a key part of the England side that ended an 18-year wait for an Ashes victory with a 2-1 triumph in the 2005 series against Australia.His last first-class appearance was at the Oval in Australia's return four years later as England regained the urn. He left the Test arena with an average of 32.78 runs and 226 wickets at a rate of 31.77.(source)

Ricky Ponting announces retirement from Test cricket

Australia's Ricky Ponting announces his retirement from international cricket, telling a news conference he will be calling time on his glittering 17-year career after this week's third test against South Africa.

The former Australia captain has scored 13,366 runs in 167 tests - the second highest run haul in the history of the game - and stands behind only the great Don Bradman in the ranks of Australian batsmen.

Ponting, who stood down from the test captaincy last year and retired from one-day cricket in February, has scored nought, four and 16 in his three innings so far in the series against South Africa.

"I could sit here all day and reflect on my career, and I could talk about the great teams I've played in, the great players I've played with, the great players I've played against, but I honestly believe that that's for another time," Ponting, who turns 38 next month, told reporters.

"There's other days and times for that, at the end of this game and at the end of my career when we can all get together and talk about those moments."

NZ's Andrew Hore banned for five weeks for striking Bradley Davies

New Zealand hooker Andrew Hore has been banned for five weeks for striking Wales lock Bradley Davies off the ball during the All Blacks' win in Cardiff.The suspension means the 34-year-old will miss the All Blacks' final autumn Test against England on Saturday.

He would have faced an eight-week ban for a 'top end' entry level offence.But it was reduced by three weeks for his "acceptance of guilt, genuine remorse, exemplary disciplinary record and his conduct during the hearing".

The International Rugby Board's Judicial Officer appointed to the case, Professor Lorne Crerar of Scotland, said evidence of Hore's remorse was "his daily contact with the injured player".

Davies was taken to hospital with concussion after the incident, which happened barely 30 seconds into New Zealand's 33-10 win. He will miss Wales' Test against Australia on Saturday as a result.

Ferrari consider Sebastian Vettel protest

Sebastian Vettel

Ferrari want to establish whether there is enough evidence to lodge a protest that, if successful, could overturn the result of the Formula 1 world championship.They are "evaluating footage" that appears to show Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel making an illegal overtaking move in Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix.

Spain's Fernando Alonso lost the title by three points to his German rival.But Vettel could lose four points if he is deemed to have broken the rules.Formula 1's governing body, the FIA, has so far refused to confirm that it is investigating the incident.

There is no word either from Vettel's Red Bull team, who could not be contacted for a comment.
Video footage from Vettel's on-board camera appears to show him passing Toro Rosso's Jean-Eric Vergne in a yellow 'caution' zone on lap four of Sunday's race.

If that is the case and if any protest is made and upheld, it could result in a retrospective 20-second penalty for the German.That would drop the 25-year-old from sixth to eighth, costing him valuable points and a third successive world title.Alonso, who finished the race at Interlagos in second place behind Jenson Button, would then top the standings by a single point.

The 31-year-old Alonso, who was world champion in 2005 and 2006, is believed to be pushing Ferrari to make an official protest to the FIA.However, the governing body does not need Ferrari to act to investigate further. In fact, its own rules appear to oblige it to do so.

Article 179b of the international sporting code says: "If, in events forming part of an FIA championship, a new element is discovered, whether or not the stewards of the meeting have already given a ruling, these stewards of the meeting or, failing this, those designated by the FIA must meet… summoning the party or parties concerned to hear any relevant explanations and to judge in the light of the facts and elements brought before them."

It adds: "The period during which an appeal in review may be brought expires on 30 November of the year during which the decision that is liable to review has been handed down, if that decision is likely to have an effect on the result of a championship."That appears to give the FIA until Friday to resolve the situation one way or another.

Drivers must proceed with caution and overtaking is strictly forbidden in a yellow zone - indicated by yellow flags and flashing trackside yellow lights.

If a driver is caught overtaking in a yellow-flag zone, the punishment is either to drive through the pits at restricted speed if the race is still under way, or 20 seconds added to a driver's race time if the incident takes place close to the end of the race or is investigated after the race.

The footage in question was not shown on the main global 'world feed' during the race as it was showing repeats of the start at the time.However, it has since been posted on the video-sharing site YouTube.

The footage shows Vettel passing two flashing yellow lights then overtaking Vergne down the straight, completing the move before reaching a flashing green light, indicating the end of the yellow zone.
Rules dictate that the 'yellow' zone ends only when the driver passes the first 'green' indicator.

Drivers are alerted to caution zones by an indicator on their car's dashboard display.The yellow flag indicator in Vettel's cockpit is on the whole time.If there is any discrepancy between what is displayed on a driver's dashboard and what is being displayed on the track, then the trackside flags and lights take precedence.
It is possible that Vettel thought he was free to overtake Vergne because he saw a marshal waving a green flag at the exit of the pit lane. In other words, before he made his manoeuvre.

A green flag is waved by a marshal at that post as Vettel passes the Marussia of Charles Pic on lap three, but it is not clear whether it was still being waved on lap four.Some videos have appeared on the internet that seem to show an official waving a green flag but it is not clear on official television footage.

The likelihood of any protest being lodged or of any action being taken depends on whether Ferrari or the FIA can establish whether there was a green flag waving at that marshals' post at that time.If there was, the case will be closed and no further action will be taken. If there was not a green flag, it is highly likely that the case will go before the FIA Court of Appeal.

Under a strict interpretation of the rules, the Court of Appeal would seem to have little option in that scenario to impose a penalty.But it may well feel it has to evaluate how much of an effect on the result of the race a drive-through penalty for Vettel at the time would have had.

BBC Sport asked the FIA:

- If the stewards of the Brazilian Grand Prix had investigated the incident in question during the race.
- If there was a green flag waved on lap four at the marshals' post on the inside of the track after the exit of Turn Three.
- If the FIA was now investigating the incident.
The FIA declined to comment.(source)

Flintoff ready for boxing debut

Former England cricket captain Andrew Flintoff says he is taking his new career as a professional boxer very seriously .After a 14-year career as a cricketer -- 11 of them with England -- Andrew "Freddie" Flintoff could be forgiven for putting his feet up in retirement.

Instead, at the age of 34, he is attempting to reinvent himself as a professional boxer, fighting unbeaten American Richard Dawson on November 30 at the Manchester Arena.

On Saturday night the venue -- which will be set up for 5,000 supporters -- witnessed the unsuccessful comeback of Ricky Hatton.The stoppage defeat of Flintoff's friend is a sobering reminder that while one may "play" cricket or football, boxing, with all its inherent dangers, is not a sport to be trifled with.

Some within the fight trade -- including former world champions Sugar Ray Leonard and Mike Tyson -- have been supportive of Flintoff, but others have questioned the wisdom of a man with no pugilistic experience stepping through the ropes of a professional ring.

Champions League may have 64 clubs & Europa League scrapped

European football's governing body Uefa is considering ditching the Europa League in favour of extending the Champions League from 32 to 64 teams."We're discussing it. We will make a decision in 2014. Nothing is decided yet," Uefa president Michel Platini told French newspaper Ouest-France.

It means seven English clubs and five Scottish teams could enter at a qualifying round stage.Uefa are looking at changing the format of European competitions from 2015."There is an ongoing debate to determine what form the European competitions will have between 2015 and 2018," added Platini.

The Champions League is a far more lucrative competition than Europe's second-tier tournament, while the Europa League has also been criticised by some since it replaced the Uefa Cup in 2009.Last week Newcastle manager Alan Pardew said the Europa League was more difficult to negotiate  than the Champions League because of its "heavier schedule" and Thursday night kick-offs.

Despite that, Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas - who won the competition with Porto in 2011 - has said he could not understand why the tournament was viewed as a punishment  in England.It has been reported that Europe's richest clubs are planning to form a breakaway European league.

Barcelona president Sandro Rosell said earlier this month that he would like to cut the number of teams competing in the top tier of domestic leagues and expand the Champions League.But Platini, a former France international, said he was not worried by talk of a tournament to rival the Champions League being set up.

"It's a question that is regularly brought up," he said."I can't see how it could work outside the Uefa framework. Who will referee them? In what stadiums will they play?"(source)

Vettel Yellow Flag Passes at Brazilian GP 2012

Sebastian Vettel could lose Formula 1 championship

Sebastian Vettel was proclaimed triple world champion in Formula 1 Brazilian Interlagos circuit, but have appeared some images that could cost the World Cup. They look like the Red Bull ahead with caution, something forbidden, and although not sanctioned stewards after the race, if Ferrari protest to the FIA, the title could go into the hands of Spanish Fernando Alonso. 

After his incident on the first lap, Sebastian Vettel was forced to come from behind to keep the title of Formula 1. Throughout the entire race had to make countless overtaking, but there is one in particular that is suspect.This is an advancement to a Toro Rosso, it seems that Australian Daniel Ricciardo, produced under caution, so that would be prohibited.  

The footage clearly shows the car as Vettel exceeds several meters before coming back to the green flags.Vettel reached the height of its rivals in an area with caution, for a hazard on the track or in any area escapatorias.El pilot, who was also warned by the display that all cars have over the steering wheel, forward Ricciardo at Toro Rosso before reaching the area of ​​green flag, indicating standardized career. 

From Race Direction have noticed during the test, or if the victim had claimed team about it (in this case that would not have happened, since Toro Rosso is a subsidiary of Red Bull), the penalty for Vettel had been a drive-through '.  

But during the race there was not even an investigation of what happened.A few laps that were shot under safety car, so all the cars were grouped. Vettel was sixth and seventh place was worth it to be a champion, but they knew they would lose the title if he was eighth.  

So they sent Vergne-pilot of the subsidiary Toro Rosso-slow pace after the Safety, to prevent Vettel fell to eighth place by a penalty.However, Vergné not slowed enough and came exactly 19,200 seconds of Vettel, so if German is finally enacted, could lose his title by just eight tenths. Now everything depends on a possible claim to the FIA ​​Ferrari, so the title of Formula 1 2012 yet undecided, and could go into the hands of Spanish Fernando Alonso.

Rafael Benitez booed by Chelsea fans against Manchester City

New Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez is greeted by boos from many of the club's supporters as his reign at Stamford Bridge begins with the visit of Manchester City.The Spaniard, who has replaced the popular Roberto Di Matteo, began life in West London with a 0-0 draw against champions Manchester City.

Benitez made comments during his time as Liverpool manager that antagonised Chelsea fans, but believes he can change their feelings towards him by winning matches.

Chelsea v Man City 0-0 - Benitez Interview 11/25/2012

Rafael Benitez suffered a fiercely hostile reception from Chelsea's supporters as his managerial reign opened with a goalless draw against Premier League champions Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich appointed the former Liverpool manager on an interim basis after sacking Roberto Di Matteo only six months after winning the Champions League and FA Cup.

Benitez's arrival has met with an angry response from Chelsea fans in the wake of his old rivalry with them during his time at Anfield - and they made their strength of feeling abundantly clear.

The Spaniard was met with deafening jeers when he arrived in the technical area before kick-off, with the stadium announcer struggling to make himself heard ahead of a minute's applause for former Chelsea manager Dave Sexton, who has passed away.

The mediocre affair did little to lift spirits, with City, still unbeaten in the league, marginally the better side but unable to fashion the victory that would have taken them back above Manchester United at the top of the table.

Benitez was left with plenty to ponder after the frosty response from his own fans, who directed abusive chants at him during the game and also delivered a minute's applause for Di Matteo after 16 minutes, in honour of the Italian who wore the number 16 shirt as a player.And there was no instant revival for Fernando Torres as he struggled once more - although Benitez will be pleased with a clean sheet.

The antipathy directed towards Benitez continued throughout a subdued first half, with City creating what few opportunities there were.David Silva headed off target from an inviting cross from Pablo Zabaleta, who saw a shot from the edge of the area blocked by Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech.

Sergio Aguero missed City's best chance four minutes before half-time, heading straight at Cech from eight yards after being set up by strike partner Edin Dzeko.

One of Benitez's priorities is to rekindle the fire in Torres and it was clear Chelsea's game had undergone a swift shift in emphasis, with an obvious increase in the number of long balls being hit towards the striker. On this occasion, though, it made life even easier for City captain Vincent Kompany.

Torres came to life on the hour when a loose ball fell in his direction in the area but he could only fire a rising left foot drive narrowly over the bar.

In a torrential downpour, moments of quality were scarce although Chelsea had an anxious moment as the game entered its final 10 minutes as Cech was forced to divert James Milner's cross with his legs.

Benitez had remained largely impassive but moved to question the fourth official when Ashley Cole's late shot was clearly turned over by City keeper Joe Hart only for referee Chris Foy to award a goal-kick.It almost counted as a moment of high drama in a game that was, to put it politely, subdued and low key.

Aston Villa v Arsenal 0-0 - Barry Bannan Interview 11/25/2012

Aston Villa edged out of the relegation zone with a drab goalless draw against Arsenal at rain-soaked Villa Park.In an uneventful first half, Andreas Weimann saw a strike ruled out for offside and Laurent Koscielny shot over when well placed.

The second half was far more open and Aaron Ramsey went close before Brett Holman's drive was tipped on to the bar by Wojciech Szczesny.Arsenal pushed for a late winner but were forced to settle for a point.

It meant they missed the chance to replace Everton in fifth, while Villa go above Reading in 17th, although the Royals have a game in hand.If Arsene Wenger truly believes his team are in contention for the title, he must be disappointed to see them fall 10 points behind leaders Manchester United.

Villa boss Paul Lambert, by contrast, will take heart from his side's display following defeats by United and City, and heading into crucial meetings with Reading, QPR, Stoke and Norwich.He knew a response was needed following last weekend's 5-0 loss at Etihad Stadium and, while it duly arrived, they could have taken all three points with the help of a proven goalscorer.

Formula 1 Brazilian Grand Prix Start (Vettel Colision, Alonso Great Start)

2012 Sebastian Vettel Tribute

Sebastian Vettel takes his third drivers' title after an extraordinary wet-dry Brazilian Grand Prix, which saw the Red Bull driver come through the field after an early spin to take sixth place.Fernando Alonso finishes second behind McLaren's Jenson Button, but it was not quite enough to deprive his German championship rival of glory, as Ferrari team-mate Felipe Massa secured third.

Vettel wins his third F1 world championship for Red Bull

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel won a third consecutive world drivers' title by three points in the Brazilian GP.
In an incident-packed, rain-affected race, Vettel fought back to finish sixth after dropping to last on lap one following a collision.

His rival Fernando Alonso of Ferrari finished second, meaning he needed Vettel to be lower than seventh.
McLaren's was hit by Force India's Nico Hulkenberg.The German was trying to pass Hamilton for the lead with 27 laps to go but lost control on the slippery track and slid into the side of Hamilton's car.

Hulkenberg, driving the race of his career up to that point, was given a drive-through penalty and finished fifth, behind Alonso's team-mate Felipe Massa in third and Red Bull's Mark Webber in fourth.Vettel becomes the youngest driver in history to win three world titles - at six years younger than Ayrton Senna. He is only the third driver to win three in succession.

"It is difficult to imagine what goes through my head now even for myself," Vettel said. "I am full of adrenaline and if you poke me now I wouldn't feel it."It was an incredible race. When you get turned around at Turn Four for no reason and it becomes like heading the wrong way down the M25 it is not the most comfortable feeling.

"I was lucky no-one hit me but the car was damaged and we lost a lot of speed, especially when it dried up. Fortunately it started to rain again and I felt so much happier.

"A lot of people tried to play dirty tricks [during the season], but we did not get distracted by that and kept going, and all the guys gave a big push right to the end."A breathless and topsy-turvy race, with intermittent rain, created drama from the first lap.

Vettel made a bad start from fourth on the grid and at the fourth corner was first tagged from behind by Lotus's Kimi Raikkonen and then hit by Williams's Bruno Senna.The impact knocked Vettel into a spin, and damaged the rear bodywork of his car, and he was last as he crossed the line at the end of lap one.

Alonso finished the first lap fifth, but seconds later passed Massa and Webber as they went three abreast into Turn One to take third.In those positions, Alonso would have been champion, but Vettel set about recovering lost ground and by lap eight was remarkably up to sixth place, while Alonso had slipped behind Hulkenberg after running wide at Turn One on lap five.

Through a series of twists and turns at the front, including varying degrees of rain and a safety-car intervention, Vettel was always in control of the championship.

Camacho's career highlights:

1980: Wins debut against David Brown in New York
1983: Beats Rafael Limon in San Juan to win the WBC super featherweight title
1985: Wins WBC lightweight title, defeating Jose Luis Ramirez in Las Vegas

England set to meet Brazil at Rio's Maracana Stadium

Maracana Stadium

England will play Brazil in a friendly at Rio de Janeiro's Maracana Stadium next summer, local officials said. The fixture will take place on 2 June at the arena which will go on to host both the 2014 World Cup final and the opening and closing ceremonies of the Rio Olympic Games two years later.

The friendly will be Brazil's first game at the 78,000-capacity Maracana after substantial modernisation work. Brazil first travel to Wembley for a friendly against England on 6 February. The renovation work at the Rio stadium, expected to be completed by 28 February, will expand the roof to cover all of the stands. News of the friendly at the spiritual home of Brazilian football was confirmed by the Governor of Rio de Janeiro, Sergio Cabral.

But the Football Association declined to comment on the information released by Mr Cabral. The game in Rio will take place just two weeks before the start of the Confederations Cup on 15 June, a tournament which is seen as a warm-up for the World Cup two years later.

Back in 1950, an estimated crowd of 200,000 people packed into the old Maracana to see Brazil lose the World Cup final to Uruguay. England last played there in 1984, when John Barnes's mazy dribble and goal helped England to a famous 2-0 victory.

News of the fixture emerged just hours after Brazil coach Mano Menezes was sacked, two days after winning the Superclasico de las Americas against Argentina on penalties. A successor is expected to be announced in January.(Source)
