F1: Leclerc signs new Ferrari deal until 2024

first_imgRelatedPosts Leclerc ends Ferrari’s nine-year wait, wins Italian GP  Verstappen wins Austrian Grand Prix  Formula One: Heartbreak for Leclerc as Hamilton wins in Bahrain Charles Leclerc has signed a new long-term contract with the Ferrari Formula One team through to the end of the 2024 season. Ferrari Academy driver Leclerc joined the Scuderia at the start of last season after a year plying his trade with Sauber, agreeing a deal believed to last until the end of the 2021 season. But he has been rewarded for a successful maiden campaign with Ferrari with a new and improved contract. A delighted Leclerc said: “I am very happy to be staying on with Scuderia Ferrari. This past season, driving for the most illustrious team in Formula 1, has been a dream year for me. “I cannot wait to enjoy an even deeper relationship with the team after what has been an intense and exciting 2019. I’m keen to see what the future holds and I can’t wait to get going again next season.” Leclerc went into 2019 as teammate to Sebastian Vettel, who was given number one status by team principal Mattia Binotto due to his experience as a four-time champion and after four years with Ferrari. But Leclerc quickly established himself, claiming two race wins and seven pole positions to the one victory and two poles for Vettel, and finishing 24 points ahead of the 32-year-old German in the drivers’ standings. The new deal makes clear that Ferrari see 22-year-old Monegasque Leclerc as their long-term future. Vettel’s current deal expires at the end of 2020. Binotto has no doubt that with Leclerc, Ferrari will again be successful. Next term will be the team’s 13th year without a drivers’ champion, and 12 since they last won the constructors’ championship. Binotto said: “With each passing race this year, our wish to extend our contract with Charles became ever more self-evident and the decision means he will now be with us for the next five seasons. It demonstrates that Charles and the Scuderia have a firm future together. “Charles has been part of our family since 2016 and we are more than proud of the results we are achieving with our Academy. “We are therefore very pleased to be able to announce that he will be with us for many years to come and I’m sure that together, we will write many new pages in the history of the Prancing Horse.”Tags: Charles LeclercFerrari AcademyScuderiaScuderia Ferrarilast_img read more

Syracuse defense misses out on 3 interceptions, allows 2 big plays in loss to Maryland

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 22, 2014 at 12:10 am Contact Phil: [email protected] | @PhilDAbb The Syracuse secondary yielded two lengthy, game-changing plays — and couldn’t create any of its own.Potential momentum-changers presented themselves in the form of three errant passes, but the Orange couldn’t haul in any of them in its 34-20 loss to Maryland in the Carrier Dome on Saturday. SU held the Terrapins’ receivers to two receptions longer than 30 yards, but they were pivotal.“I never felt like we gave ourselves a push in momentum throughout the course of the game to get on track,” head coach Scott Shafer said.The Terrapins’ first score of the day came on a well-placed 25-yard pass to the back of the end zone by quarterback C.J. Brown to receiver Marcus Leak, who beat SU cornerback Julian Whigham on a straight go route.UMD’s second touchdown came on a bubble screen from its own 10-yard line. A hole formed for Brandon Ross to shoot past four SU defenders and he took it 90 yards to the house.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I saw it developing,” safety Darius Kelly said. “The receivers did some blocking downfield, a good job of chopping us down and they got a play on us.”With Maryland ahead 14-13 early in the second quarter, Brown aired out a pass down the left sideline for Leak, who ran another go route with SU cornerback Brandon Reddish blanketing him.Reddish had his hands on the ball first, but Leak took a step infield before the pass came down and ripped it from Reddish’s grasp as the two tumbled to the turf at SU’s 17-yard line, a 46-yard pickup.The SU senior threw his hands around in frustration as Leak popped up pounding his chest.“It kind of haunts you for the rest of the game until the next time you get an opportunity,” Kelly said. “It makes us hungry to get the next one.”Kelly himself missed out on a pick, running downfield with his back to the line of scrimmage and an overthrown pass tipped his outstretched hands.Another chance for an interception eluded the Orange when, on Maryland’s next drive, SU nose tackle Eric Crume, running out toward the left flat, let a pass straight to him fall through his hands and incomplete.Said linebacker Cameron Lynch: “I just tell them they owe me one. They owe the team one and I think they’ll get them.” Commentslast_img read more
