#1 scoring double off Dan Jennings in the eighth. von mary123 04.11.2019 11:06

Lewis Hamilton has admitted he is not enjoying being the hunter in this years world championship fight. Primarily because of the unreliability of his Mercedes car this year, Hamilton finds himself trailing team-mate Nico Rosberg by 43 points in the standings. But the reigning champion has scoffed at the idea that, in the position of chaser, the pressure is off him - or that its harder being the driver everyone else is striving to catch.Its much easier leading the championship, full stop, the Mercedes driver responded. You have the advantage and so you have that comfort buffer. I have zero comfort buffer right now. Its just hard work right now. Im not focusing on the what ifs, Im just focusing on the here and now. Ted Kravitz and Johnny Herbert analyse how Lewis Hamiltons nose got broken in the Mercedes garage during Thursday practice at Monaco Hamilton has previously described his points-deficit to Rosberg as being akin to a mountain with the German almost two full race victories ahead. So has Hamilton already come to terms with the possibility of failing to complete a hat-trick of championships at Mercedes?If it happens, it happens, if it doesnt, it doesnt. There will be many, many opportunities in the future but this opportunity is still there - we have 16 races to go - and Im remaining positive. The glass is only 10 per cent full and there is still all the rest to fill up.Mercedes seek Monaco solution after practice surpriseBut Rosberg has his own special motivation this weekend. Victory would make him only the fourth driver in F1 history to have won at Monaco three or more times in a row. And the current roll-call is an illustrious list: Ayrton Senna, Alain Prost and Mr Monaco, Graham Hill. Hamilton finished the 2015 Monaco GP in third after Mercedes pitted the race leader under Safety Car, leaving him behind Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel Hamilton, conversely, has won just once around the iconic venue - a modest statistic which prompted him to describe the race as his Achilles heel earlier this month. And while Hamilton remains a committed fan of the art of conquering the circuit and its unforgiving barriers, describing a lap of Monte Carlo as one of the purest thrills you can have in a racing car, the 31-year-old has admitted that he is not a fan of the spectacle the race sometimes provides. Can Hamilton end his Monaco hoodoo?In the last few years it has been a one-stop race and that is a procession, he mused. The track looks so cool at night and l was thinking why dont we have two races here?. We should have more stops and the ultrasoft tyre isnt soft. We need an ultra, ultra, ultra, ultrasoft - four times softer - so we have more stops and that mixes it up. In my first years, when there were more stops and that was way more exciting. We will be two seconds faster this year than last year but the overtaking will still be the same.The weather may have something to say about that, however, with showers still forecast for race day. And in any case, would Hamilton mind a lack of overtaking if he crosses the line in first?As he addressed his pre-event media briefing, Hamilton remarked that a friend had declined to attend this years event because he considered the race to be a train. Hamilton paused for a moment and then added:I said, Yeah, Im in it - and hopefully at the front. Watch the Monaco GP live on Sky Sports F1.

MIAMI -- Jose Fernandez bounced back from his worst outing of the season with a dominant effort against the Mets. He pitched seven scoreless innings and had two hits with an RBI to help the Miami Marlins past the Mets 8-1 on Saturday.

"I woke up early, I went and picked her up and then we had lunch together," he said. "She was here watching the game. Anytime I get to see my family that makes me very happy." With the Marlins trying to keep his pitch count low, the rookie said he was not thinking shutout despite being at 87 pitches through seven innings. "Nope. I was thinking one pitch at a time," he said. "I wasnt thinking about anything else. I was thinking about making pitches and keeping the ball low." Fernandez was coming off his shortest outing of the season. He surrendered seven runs -- four earned -- in 3 1-3 innings at Tampa Bay on May 27. "I was a little upset like I should be after that game, but the next day was another day," Fernandez said. "It was time to get work done and Im pretty happy how I came back." Marlins manager Mike Redmond said he was confident Fernandez would pitch well Saturday. "Hes been able to bounce back after a tough start and be great and he was again tooday," Redmond said.dddddddddddd It was Fernandezs third start against the Mets, his first with a decision.

Chris Coghlan had three hits, including two run-scoring singles. Derek Dietrich had a two-run single in a four-run seventh that made it 8-0. Collin McHugh (0-1) gave up four runs and six hits in four-plus innings. He walked three and struck out one in his first start of the season. Omar Quintanilla had two of the Mets hits. Pinch hitter Justin Turner delivered a run-scoring double off Dan Jennings in the eighth. Coghlans two-out single in the first scored Placido Polanco from second to give Miami a 1-0 lead. Polanco crossed the plate before Dietrich was thrown out at third by centre fielder Rick Ankiel. "If Polanco lets up there, we dont get that run. That set the tone," Redmond said. Miami went ahead 2-0 in the second when Fernandez singled to score Jeff Mathis from first base. Mathis walked with two outs, and scored when Fernandez lined a single into deep left-centre. The Marlins scored twice in the fourth to go ahead 4-0. Coghlan and Greg Dobbs opened with singles. Adeiny Hechavarria delivered a sacrifice fly and Mathis tripled in Dobbs.
