  • Hamilton to have faster car at F1 restart

    first_img(BBC) – Lewis Hamilton will have a faster car for the first race of the delayed Formula 1 season as a result of a number of upgraded parts.Hamilton has not driven the 2020 car since the end of testing in February.Mercedes technical director James Allison said they worked on getting developments designed in January, February and March on to the car.“We got a lot of ideas how to make it quicker. We hope to have a chunk of that for the first race,” Allison said.All F1 teams were shut down from the last week of March through April and May, and returned to work this month in preparation for the start of the season in Austria July 3-5.The number of upgrades they have managed to produce in that time will have a defining effect on competitiveness as the season starts up.Allison said that the car, launched in February, was fixed at around Christmas, with the first part of this year spent designing upgrades.“Quite a lot of those ideas were already in process through the design office before we were forced to shut down,” he said.“Our challenge now is to make sure that quarter of a year of development can get off the drawing boards and onto the car as swiftly as possible.”Mercedes tested at Silverstone last week with a 2018 car to give the team and drivers a chance to “blow off the cobwebs” and try out the new working practices aimed at avoiding any risks with coronavirus.“Probably the biggest change for all of us is going to be being at a race weekend where there are no fans,” said Allison, who was talking in a video published by Mercedes.“That is going to be a very strange experience. It’s normally one of the pleasures of being at a track.“I’m itching to find out in the crucible of a race event whether the work we did has produced a car we can be excited and proud of.”last_img read more

He spent a season on the bench due to NCAA transfer rules, then as the understudy to Tyus Battle and Oshae Brissett’s combined stardom for the Orange. This season was Hughes’ first as the main option and he thrived. He tallied a season-high 33 points on Dec. 7 against Georgia Tech and surpassed the 20-point mark in 15 of SU’s 32 games.Hughes is projected as the No. 38 pick in the draft per NBADraft.net. Due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported NBA pre-draft events are not guaranteed. Additionally, CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein reported Saturday that many teams are preparing to move forward without the process and will instead communicate digitally with potential draft picks.Hughes, who was snubbed from major awards prior to being named to the ACC’s first team, will likely not have a chance to make an impression in-person.“If you watch, you know. If you don’t watch, you don’t know,” head coach Jim Boeheim said of Hughes after he scored 25 points against Pittsburgh on Feb. 26.He joins Jalen Carey, Brycen Goodine and Howard Washington as members of SU’s 2019-20 group that have left the team. Hughes has not made any announcement as to whether or not he will sign with an agent. Syracuse redshirt junior forward Elijah Hughes will enter the NBA Draft process, he announced on Instagram and Twitter Saturday evening. The first All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection at SU in four years led the league with 19.0 points per game, adding 5.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists.last_img read more
