SPIELBERG, Austria -- Nico Rosberg set the fastest time in the opening practice session for the Austrian Grand Prix, smashing the circuit lap record for the Red Bull Ring in the process. Youth Harold Landry Jersey .Rosbergs time of 1:07.373 beat Michael Schumachers best time from the first qualifying session in 2003 by over half a second and was more than a second quicker than last years pole position time. The combination of fresh ultra-soft tyres and the Red Bull Rings recently laid surface undoubtedly contributed to the quick time, but the Mercedes once again looks like the package to beat, with Rosberg holding a 0.649s over Sebastian Vettel in the fastest Ferrari.Lewis Hamilton was second fastest, 0.357 off Rosberg, but had his first lap on his set of ultra-soft tyres ruined by traffic. He eventually set his time on 10-lap old tyres, suggesting he still has plenty of margin to improve given a fresh set. Vettel was exactly 0.2s quicker than Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen in fourth, with Daniel Ricciardo fifth fastest, 1.155s off the pace of Rosberg.Although the Red Bull Ring only has nine corners, it proved to be a tricky challenge for several drivers during the 90-minute session. Max Verstappen twice damaged his car against the new kerbs at the exit of Turn 5 and exit of Turn 8. The bright yellow kerbs sit beyond the normal red and white kerbs and are there to act as a deterrent for drivers attempting to steal a tenth or two by either running wide at Turn 5 and 8 or cutting the apex at Turn 7.But the 18-year-old Verstappen was unperturbed by the warning and in the first half of the session lost a front wing endplate as he clouted the yellow kerbs on the exit of Turn 8. During a lull in the session he used his team radio to register a very public complaint, saying: I think those yellow kerbs on the high-speed corners are really dangerous.When he rejoined the track for a quick lap on super-soft tyres he hit the kerbs on the exit of Turn 5, again shedding a front wing endplate before damaging his front right suspension as he rejoined at speed over the second section of kerbing on the outside of the corner. From that point on he was just a passenger and ended up beached in the gravel trap beyond Turn 6. The mistake meant he did not set a quick lap on the ultra-soft tyres, leaving him eighth overall, behind Carlos Sainz and Felipe Massa and ahead of Daniil Kvyat and Valtteri Bottas who rounded out the top ten. Williams opted not to use the ultra-softs during the session, meaning Toro Rossos position in the timesheets may well drop when all the cars are on track on equal rubber.Vertsappen wasnt the only driver to make mistakes. Twenty five minutes into the session Hamilton spun on the exit of Turn 3, briefly entering the gravel before ending up on the edge of the circuit. Romain Grosjean was following him into the corner and had to swerve to miss him, leaving his Haas pointing towards the barrier. He managed to recover to the track without damage and went on to finish the session 11th fastest.Rosberg took a trip through the gravel at Turn 3 with 30 minutes remaining before Daniel Ricciardo crossed the gravel on the exit of Turn 6 towards the end of the session. Both drivers were able to rejoin with no major damage.Two incidents will be investigated by the stewards after the session. Marcus Ericsson strayed over the pit lane entrance line just as Ricciardo passed him around the outside at Turn 8, forcing the Red Bull to run wide. Onboard footage showed Ericsson lost the rear of his Sauber in the corner, pushing him wide just at the wrong moment. Pascal Wehrlein is also under investigation for failing to stay above minimum lap time under a Virtual Safety Car period, which was deployed to clear Verstappens stricken Red Bull. Cheap Titans Jerseys For Sale . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. Youth Rashaan Evans Jersey . Kyle Denbrook, a soccer player from Saint Marys University, took the CIS male athlete of the week honour. Stanley, a fourth-year business administration student from Charlottetown, scored both goals in a 2-0 win over Dalhousie on Friday and tallied again in a 1-0 win over Saint Marys on Sunday. http://www.wholesaletitansjerseys.com/ . Badenhop was 2-3 with a 3.47 ERA in 63 relief appearances for Milwaukee this season. He is 18-20 in his career with three saves and a 3. SEATTLE -- Death, taxes and Rick Porcello.That is the type of consistency that the Boston Red Soxs 27-year-old starter carries into his scheduled Wednesday start at Safeco Field. He has won eight decisions in a row and each of his past six starts.On a Red Sox team that has struggled to find much even ground in recent weeks, Porcello (14-2, 3.47 ERA) has been rock steady.Hes been our stopper, manager John Farrell said after Porcellos last start, a complete-game, 6-2 win at Angel Stadium last week. And hes been very consistent, probably the most dependable guy in our rotation when you go back to the opening series of the season.Porcello hasnt lost a game since May 17, having gone 8-0 with a 3.44 ERA over his subsequent 13 starts. His dependability has been a big reason why the Red Sox (58-47) have been able to stay in the thick of the American League East race despite some recent stumbles. Boston is just 4-8 over its past 12 games yet is still within two games of the first-place Baltimore Orioles in the division standings.The Red Sox took another hit late Tuesday night, when first baseman Hanley Ramirez slipped on the dugout steps after a 5-4 loss to Seattle and hurt his left wrist. His status for Wednesdays game was up in the air.Earlier in the night, new reliever Fernando Abad gave up the game-winning homer to the first batter he faced: Seattles Robinson Cano. It was an inauspicious debut for the left-hander the Red Sox were counting on to help shore up their bullpen.Seattle (53-52) has its share of issues as well, but the interest in the Mariners is nowhere near what it is for the contending Red Sox. Seaattle gave the home fans another exciting, comeback win Tuesday night, but those victories have been few and far between for a team that is falling out of contention. Wholesale Titans Jerseys. The Mariners collected five of their eight hits Tuesday night in the eighth inning.We havent done that in a long time, Cano said. Late in a game, get three, four, five hits in a row.Seattle is going to need some more big offense if Wednesday starter Hisashi Iwakuma pitches as he did the last time out. Iwakuma (11-7, 4.21 ERA) endured his shortest outing of the season in an 11-0 loss to the Cubs on Friday, giving up five runs in three innings.With a right-hander on the mound for the Mariners, the Red Sox plan to give Andrew Benintendi, a recent call-up from Triple-A, his first start. The outfielder went 0-for-2 as a late-game replacement Tuesday in his major league debut, but he is expected to bring his left-handed bat to the starting lineup Wednesday.Seattle has a prized prospect of its own, new closer Edwin Diaz. The flame-throwing rookie, who possesses a 100 mph fastball, made his debut as closer on Tuesday night and struck out three of the four batters he faced to earn his first career save.Diaz was moved into the ninth-inning role before the game, as veteran Steve Cishek blew a save Sunday and gave up the game-winning homer in a non-save situation Monday.The first time being a closer, thats tough for anyone, especially at home, Cano said of Diazs Tuesday performance. But he was the same guy: 1-2-3. NFL T-shirts From China Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Gear Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
