I can understand Kimi is not happy. But as I said we will regroup. The victor, Japan's Takumo Sato (another ex-Formula 1 teammate of Button) was unknown until virtually the very last lap - when was the last time we could say that about a Formula 1 race? With Valtteri Bottas finishing fourth in Monaco to close to within 29 points of his teammate - compared to a gap of 62 points between the Ferrari drivers - Hamilton says he won't ask Mercedes to prioritize his own title ...
On home soil in December, Australia eased to a comfortable 3-0 win and the skipper knows both sides will present few surprises to one another.

Juventus missed a great chance in the last minute to score a goal that would have won the tie; instead it finished 1-1 on aggregate and Real Madrid won the replay in Paris one week later. "I see the final at 50-50, a final is always hard to predict and there is no clear favourite", said the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ victor.

The Golden State Warriors are averaging 117.9 points on 49.5 percent shooting and allowing 101.2 points on 41.1 percent shooting. No matter how Durant or his team try to spin it, he took the easy way out. Kerr has not been on the Warriors bench since the middle of the first round of the playoffs, once again laid low by physical pain that's a remnant of long-ago back surgery, and his contribution to this year's push to an National Basketball Association title will once again be mainly ...
