Momentous day in sport - in the UK

Postby Jim San » 15 Jul 2019, 08:04

Longest ever mens Wimbledon final featuring the greatest players of all time.

Record breaking win at Silverstone in the F1

Arguably the greatest ever mens cricket world cup final.

All eyes were on us yesterday - for good reasons :)

It all depends what you mean by "all" Kev. Certainly the major sports, Football, Cricket, Rugby League, Rugby Union, and hopefully by the end of the week Netball too :wink:

On Sunday I started watching the cricket (C4 FTA otherwise I couldn't see it), then the F1, then the mens final before switching over to see the final Super Over of the cricket. All three sporting events provided exceitement.

For me, as a motorsport fan, there was some proper racing between LeClerc and Verstappen, Bottas and Hamilton, with the safety car actually spoiling the competition, with the consequential result of Vettel missing his braking point and hitting Verstappen.

The outstanding moment for me was Hamilton setting the fastest lap on the final lap on 30 lap old hard tyres having ignored twice the request to come in for fresh rubber. By doing so making it impossible for Bottas to respond on his much newer softs, as by the time his side of the garage realised what was going on he would already have started his final lap. Crafty :)

One little stat that popped up yesterday, that fastest lap on those tyres was quicker that the Williams qualifying time which shows what a poor state Williams are in these days.

The discussion between Gareth Southgate and Toto Wolff was interesting too.

I have every sympathy for the black caps losing such a close game. I find it hard to think i'd ever have sympathy for the all blacks losing - no matter how close :wink:
