MONTMELO, Spain -- Sebastian Vettels practice session at the Spanish Grand Prix ended with the four-time defending Formula One champion hitching a ride on a scooter after his Red Bull puttered out. Alan Quine Jersey . Lewis Hamilton had no such problems, finishing Fridays opening day of practice with the top times from both training sessions as the dominating Mercedes team showed no signs of slowing down. The British driver is looking for his fourth straight win this season. Mercedes teammate and F1 leader Nico Rosberg was right behind, setting the afternoons second best time after his crew fixed a cooling issue. Vettel was running through his fifth lap on the sunny and dry 4.6-kilometre (2.9-mile) Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya when his Red Bull came to a halt. He then helped push his RB10 out of the path of his rivals before a group of fans gathered at the fence to take photographs of the champion using a fire extinguisher on the rear of his malfunctioning car. After Vettel was whisked back to the paddock on the back of a scooter, Hamilton clocked the fastest lap time in the opening session and then bettered that by almost 1.5 seconds in the afternoon with a mark of 1 minute, 25.524 seconds. Red Bull said an electrical problem that "damaged the wiring" of Vettels car meant he couldnt return for the afternoon practice session. That left Vettel with only one session on Saturday before qualifying. "Its a small failure, but a big consequence," Vettel said. Red Bull had given Vettels car an older chassis in a move the German called a "sanity check" to try to find an elusive answer to his cars lack of pace. The Austrian team renowned for its design had a bigger problem than speed, however, when Vettel was left stranded just after the fifth turn. Vettel is having his worst season at Red Bull with only one podium finish so far and sits in a distant fifth place in the standings. He has even had to let new teammate Daniel Ricciardo pass him twice during the last two races. And Ricciardo emerged from the opening day of practice as the closest thing the grid can offer as a threat to the Mercedes duo by recording the third best time in both sessions at almost a second behind Hamilton. Hamilton trails Rosberg by four points despite having won the last three races in front of his teammate. The pair have won all four races and taken all four pole positions this year. Hamilton hasnt lost a step after a three-week break and showed that the other teams have yet to make headway despite their upgrades for the start of the seasons run of European events. "Its been a great day today and Im happy to be back in the car after what feels like quite a long break," said Hamilton. "Our two practice sessions today went very smoothly, in fact Ive not had such a good Friday for a very long time." Last years race winner, Fernando Alonso, had the fourth best effort in both sessions, while Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen could do no better than fifth in the afternoon. Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo said he was "not happy" with his team and that he would work closely with new team principal Marco Mattiacci to "improve the situation as soon as possible." Pablo Maldonado of Lotus recorded the most laps through both 90-minute sessions with a total of 76. The early session to prepare for Sundays race featured some close calls. Sergio Perez had to box when the left mirror on his Force India car became detached. The Mexican driver had to grab it and drive one-handed while coming in. Sauber test driver Giedo Van der Garde survived a bigger scare when he told his team he had "a break failure" and ran off course, barely missing the wall. In the second session, Romain Grosjeans Lotus stalled at the end of the pitlane, while Jean-Eric Vergne lost the right rear wheel of his Toro Rosso. Max Chilton twice had to come in due to engine trouble before a piece of his Marussia went flying on his next trip out. He ended the day by driving into the sand. Josh Bailey Jersey . Team officials travelled to Los Angeles on Thursday night to meet with the free agent, a person with knowledge of the plans said. Ryan Pulock Jersey . And I wanted to take this opportunity to share some of my experiences gained through International competition and the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan.

The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., has nothing but good things to say about former U.S. marine Liz (Girlrilla) Carmouche ahead of their co-main event Wednesday on the UFCs "Fight for the Troops" televised card in Fort Campbell, Ky. Carmouche (8-3) is ranked fourth in the UFC among women 135-pounders while Davis (14-5) is sixth. "I like Liz. Shes hilarious," said Davis, who trains out of San Diego. "Her and her coaches, theyre awesome, really good. Ive said if I wasnt fighting Liz, Id want her to win. "Maybe its just the Canadian in me. But we can separate ourselves. The majority of the women fighters can do that. I can see her at weigh-ins, talk to her and be all cool with her. "And then in the cage were both going to fight our hearts out and were both going to look for that victory. And then, still right after, shake hands, go for a drink and hang out." Middleweight Tim Kennedy (16-4) takes on American-based Brazilian Rafael (Sapo) Natal (17-4-1) in the main event Wednesday. Kennedy is a former Special Forces sniper who is currently on active duty with the National Guard. Its the UFCs third "Fight for the Troops" event. Davis believes there is more of a sisterhood among female fighters because they are smaller in number and because of the Invicta promotion which only showcases women. "A lot of us have crossed paths, one way or another," she said. "Either fighting on the same event or we go to see one of teammates fight and see them there. Eventually its almost like everybody knows everybody." It makes for a special sisterhood of sorts. "A lot of women have been in the same position that you are,:" said Davis. "Weve all kind of had our struggles. So I think thats why theres more of a camaraderie with us." Some people cant separate friend and foe, however. "Ronda has the type of personality where its all business," Davis said. UFC president Dana White says Rousey gets on with other female fighters. "She just doesnt like Miesha Tate," he added. But he agrees that female fighters have a sense of solidarity. "Its smaller-knit group, theyve fought on a lot of the same cards. Theyve kind of beenn fighting for credibility. Scott Mayfield Jersey. . And now that theyre finally here, they all treat each other really well." While Davis says she can fight a friend, she wont fight a training partner. Its about respect. Davis, a former Strikeforce fighter, opened her UFC account in June with a unanimous decision victory over Englands Rosi Sexton. The Canadian, a black belt in both Brazilian and Japanese jiu-jitsu, used her grappling skills to subdue Sexton for sections of the Winnipeg fight. "A lot of pressure. A lot more than I expected," Davis said of her UFC debut. "A great fight, a great victory for me and now I feel like I can get back to my comfort zone," she added. Davis demonstrated her toughness against Sexton in the first round when she took repeated blows to the face while trying to sink in a triangle choke. The Canadian has won three straight since moving to California and attributes that run to the elite training she now gets. "I used to fight on pure heart before ... now I feel like Im fighting smarter," she said. "Im finding my range, my movement, perfecting my technique." Prior to the move, she was beaten by Victorias Sarah Kaufman in a fight she says showcased the old Alexis Davis -- "Im just going out there and Im just going to bang and I dont care what happens. You kind of take a lot of shots that way." According to FightMetric, Davis absorbed 135 significant strikes while landing 139 of her own in a majority decision Strikeforce loss in March 2012. Davis says she is leaving nothing to chance when it comes to cardio training against the 29-year-old Carmouche, who made headlines for taking on Rousey in the UFCs first female fight in February at UFC 157 and for being openly lesbian. Carmouche bounced back from the Rousey loss to scored a second-round TKO of Jessica Andrade in July. "Liz Carmouche is a beast. ... Shes a pressure fighter, push forward, push against the cage," said Davis. "I dont think Ive ever see her gas out or even come close," she added. Her camp has included some 6:30 a.m. workouts. "Im an early riser. Im like an old person," she joked. "I like to wake up early and go to bed early." Davis, whose parents will be on hand to see the fight, is still getting over the fact that she is in the co-main event. "Youre going to laugh at me but Im just totally stoked that Im on the poster." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
