Lewis Hamilton admitted he made life difficult for himself en route to his British GP pole position - but says he never doubted he would recover from having his provisional pole time deleted. Justin Simmons Jersey . Hamilton and Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg had been closely matched throughout practice and then the first stage of qualifying at Silverstone, but the Briton suddenly surged 0.7 seconds ahead in the second stage.Hamilton followed that up with another strong lap at the start of the pole shootout, but had his time deleted by Race Control for running with all four wheels off the track at Copse. That promoted Rosberg to provisional pole, leaving Hamilton with one final attempt to overhaul the German. Asked by Sky Sports F1 how he felt going into his final lap, Hamilton replied: Still feeling very confident, but of course its one lap. The first lap is always a bit of a banker.Going into Q3 reminded me of what my dad always used to say: dont drive too fast on the road! And you know as soon as you get down the road you drive a little bit faster, when I was younger. Lewis Hamilton pleased the home crowd fans by securing pole for the 2016 British Grand Prix The guys said just get a banker lap, dont go wide. And what did I do? The complete opposite! But, anyway, it wasnt intentional, I was really trying to get the best lap possible.When you come round and get pole its a mental blow to whoever you are racing against and I wanted that. I wanted that for myself and everyone here.Qualifying Report: Hamiltons 55th poleBut when it got taken away, it was cool, because I knew that I had it. Nico knew I had that pace and it wasnt a small little gap, it was a good gap. So I wanted to go out and do at least that, if not better, and so thats what I did.Sundays race will be the fourth time in Hamiltons 10-season F1 career he has started from the head of the grid at his home race and he added: I always like to do things the hard way! It was definitely a great feeling.What a crowd we have here. You can never comprehend what it feels like when Im in the car having these guys cheers me on from corner to corner, year after year. Each year I feel stronger and more united, its the greatest feeling ever. Lewis Hamilton secured the 55th pole position of his F1 career and was joined by teammate Nico Rosberg and Red Bulls Max Verstappen Hamilton will now aim for his third consecutive Silverstone victory, and record-equaling fourth overall, in Sundays race in front of what is expected to be a capacity race-day crowd. On those out laps you can feel it.

MLB executive Joe Torre ruled on Tuesday nights game at Wrigley Field that was called after 4 1-2 innings. The Cubs were declared the winners by a 2-0 score. Now, it is instead a suspended game that will resume at 4:05 p. Custom Denver Broncos Jerseys . -- The Denver Broncos locked up a shutdown cornerback, only his name wasnt Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.It has been a long time since the Blue Jays developed a starting pitcher of their own who had any kind of huge success and staying power. Yes, Ricky Romero, Dustin McGowan and Shaun Marcum all had varying degrees of viability, but McGowan and Marcum had injury issues and Romero has run into mechanical and confidence issues that have many wondering if hes ever going to get it back. You really have to go back to Roy Halladay, who broke in to the majors in late 1998 to find any Jays starting pitcher of note who went on to stardom. Its a little too early to put that "cant miss" label on right-hander Aaron Sanchez, but the 21-year-old is showing signs of being a good one. The Arizona Fall Leagues regular season, as brief as it may be, wound up on Thursday of this week. Seven of the Jays better prospects were playing with the Salt River Rafters. Going into the final game, the Rafters were a half-game back of Mesa for the East Division title. They needed to win and have Mesa lose its final game against Glendale to claim the division crown. Sanchez started for Salt River and was outstanding. He gave up one run on six hits in five innings and picked up the victory as the Rafters edged Scottsdale 3-2. The 64" Sanchez finished the AFL season with a 2-1 record and a 1.16 ERA over 23.1 innings. He had to be that good in the final game, since Scottsdale starter Kyle Crick, a top Giants prospect, started out by pitching three hitless innings and striking out five. Sanchezs teammate, lefty Mike Montgomery of the Rays organization, pitched two shutout innings in relief for the Rafters and said Sanchez is good now, but has the chance to be real good in the future. Unfortunately, Sanchez and the Rafters didnt make it into Saturdays final, because Mesa whipped Glendale 9-3 to clinch the East. Its highly unlikely Aaron Sanchez will be with the Blue Jays to start the 2014 season, but his time is coming. Starting Five Its no secret that the Blue Jays need immediate help in their rotation, and you can bet GM Alex Anthopoulos will be right in the thick of talks for free agents Matt Garza, Ubaldo Jimenez and Ervin Santana to name just three. The demand for that trio and their price is bound to increase with word that MLB has wiithdrawn its proposal for a new posting agreement with Japanese baseball. Matt Paradis Jersey. Many Major League owners, ever mindful of controlling costs, didnt like the process of making sealed bids with the high bid getting the players. Paying huge amounts to relatively unproven (by Major League standards) Japanese players only served to drive up the price, which established Major League players could then get when they became free agents. So now, unless something changes, Japanese players such as star pitcher Masahiro Tanaka will have to put in nine years of service time in their native country before they can become free agents. Posting would appear to be dead for now. The Rumour Mill This has been a week of wild unfounded rumours, such as the Jays thinking about dealing Jose Bautista to the Phillies for a package including outfielder Domonic Brown, and a number of teams including the Phillies being interested in catcher J.P. Arencibia. This isnt a rumour, just a possibility. The Cincinnati Reds are still considering moving their smoke-throwing closer Aroldis Chapman into the starting rotation to replace 37-year-old Bronson Arroyo, who is likely gone as a free agent. Chapman apparently isnt thrilled by this and wants to stay on as the Reds closer. However, if the Reds can change his mind, they would need some help in the pen. This is where the Blue Jays come in. They could deal a couple of their surplus relievers to the Reds for 27-year-old righty Homer Bailey, he of two career no-hitters. The Reds may consider dealing Bailey because hes due a healthy raise through arbitration this year after making $5.3 million last year. He can also become a free agent in 2015. Cincinnati also has lefty Tony Cingrani to plug into the rotation should they deal Bailey. Bailey, the seventh-overall pick in 2004, is also represented by the Hendricks brothers, the same ones who helped deliver Roger Clemens to the Blue Jays in 1997. Bailey doesnt have an overwhelming record over his seven years in the "Bigs" at 49-45 with a 4.25 ERA. However, he is only one of 31 pitchers all-time and just 26 in the modern era to have multiple no-hitters, and at least initially he wouldnt cost as much as Garza, Jimenez or Santana.
