for F1 title off the
track, not on it
The only thing that could keep Mercedes from
running away with the Formula One title again
this year lies off the track, not on it.
Last weekend s season-opening race in Australia
showed what everyone had suspected; Mercedes
dominance from 2014 has not been eroded and may
even have increased.
Even before Lewis Hamilton led Nico Rosberg to
the checkered flag in yet another one-two finish,
the critics were out, denouncing the race as boring
and the season ahead a fait accompli.
The complaints were loudest from the Red Bull
team, which had a disappointing weekend in which
its Renault engines had a slew of problems and local
favorite Daniel Ricciardo finished sixth, unable to
even catch the modest Sauber ahead of him.
With no chance of catching up to Mercedes on
the track this season Red Bull sought to peg its rival
back politically, urging immediate but unspecified
changes to the rules to inhibit Mercedes.
Red Bull even invoked the option of withdrawing
from the sport altogether. "If we are totally dissatisfied
we could contemplate an F1 exit," said Helmut Marko,
the on-track point-man for Red Bull owner Dietrich
Mateschitz. "The danger is there that Mr Mateschitz
loses his passion for F1."
It was a self-serving argument, promoting precisely
the kind of ad-hoc regulatory change that Red Bull
decried when it was the clear leader in the sport
during the time Sebastian Vettel won four straight
tough against Tim Duncan.
Tony Parker scored 21 points for the Spurs and
made their only basket in OT, 16 seconds into the
period. They managed just two free throws from
there to lose for the second time in nine games.
"We didn t respect the game," Spurs coach Gregg
Popovich said. "We didn t respect our opponent. It
was a pathetic performance, and I hope every player
is embarrassed. Not because we re supposed to win
the game, quote unquote, but it s about how you
play the game."
Elsewhere, New Orleans pulled even with Oklahoma
City in the race for the eighth and final playoff spot
in the West with an 85-84 win over Milwaukee.
Anthony Davis had 20 points and 12 rebounds for
the Pelicans. He hit only 6 of 18 shots, but hit a
clutch 15-footer that gave New Orleans an 85-82
lead with 1:07 left.
Quincy Pondexter hit five three-pointers and fin-
ished with 18 points for New Orleans, while Omer
Asik had 16 points and 11 rebounds.
Los Angeles withstood a late Charlotte rally to
beat the Hornets 99-92.
JJ Redick scored 23 points and Chris Paul had 20
points and eight assists for the Clippers, who led
63-41 in the third quarter before Charlotte rallied
within a point in the final period.
Blake Griffin had 19 points and 11 rebounds for
the Clippers, who were coming off back-to-back
losses to Dallas and Houston.
In Houston, Donatas Motiejunas scored 23 points
and the Rockets used a big run late in the fourth
quarter to break open a close game and beat Orlando
Detroit s Reggie Jackson had 23 points and a career-
high 20 assists as the Pistons ended a 10-game skid
with a 105-95 comeback victory over the Grizzlies.
