Nico Hulkenberg says he was left frustrated by the timing of the red flag period during the Belgian Grand Prix, after missing out on a first podium in Formula One. Nike Air Max Womens White Blue .Hulkenberg finished fourth at Spa, directly ahead of teammate Sergio Perez in fifth as Force India leapfrogged Williams up to fourth in the constructors standings after securing a 22-point haul. The German had run as high as second place behind race winner Nico Rosberg in the early stages and pitted for tyres just before the red flag came out.Despite going on to record his best result of the season, Hulkenberg admitted he was disappointed to see the red flag at that stage of the grand prix.I had a mega start, a mega first lap, Hulkenberg told Sky Sports. There was a bit of a thingy going on between Max and the Ferraris I believe and I was able to profit from that and found myself in second.On that super-soft tyres it was going actually well, I was behind Nico. He was pulling away from me a little bit but I was pulling away from the people behind me, which was really important at that stage of the race.Unfortunately the red flag came and neutralised the race, which was a bit frustrating at that moment. I would have preferred not to have that red flag but thats racing.Hulkenberg was nearly involved in a pit lane collision with Fernando Alonso as the pair exited side-by-side on Lap 24, with the Force India driver returning to the track narrowly ahead after the slightest brush of contact. Hulkenberg played down the near-altercation and believes Alonso did nothing wrong.No not at all, I wouldnt call it an incident, thats just racing. Its what we all want to see. Theres no complaints from my side just good racing. Nike Air Max Womens White 2018 .

Andrew Luck lost his favourite target and the Indianapolis locker room lost one of its most revered leaders when Reggie Wayne was diagnosed Monday with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee that will cost him the rest of the season. .B. -- The Baie-Comeau Drakkar took over sole possession of first place atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Thursday with their sixth straight win. CHICAGO -- Anthony Rizzo was annoyed as he faced a sea of microphones before the Chicago Cubs first game following the All-Star break.The only people that are panicking about this team is the media, Rizzo said. Its been pretty negative all the comments coming out of everyones mouth, except in this clubhouse.A few hours later, the Cubs put together one of their best games of the season.Kyle Hendricks and four relievers combined on a five-hitter, Addison Russell had a two-run single to key a five-run sixth inning, and the Cubs beat the Texas Rangers 6-0 on Friday in a matchup of slumping division leaders.We pitched and really played defense today, manager Joe Maddon said. It was outstanding.The Cubs won for the seventh time in 22 games, while the Rangers lost their eighth in 10 games thanks to a rough sixth that included Prince Fielders throwing error.As Jake Arrieta and Jon Lester have struggled lately, Hendricks (8-6) has remained sharp. The former Rangers draft pick allowed three hits in six innings, lowering his ERA to 2.41.Only stars Clayton Kershaw and Madison Bumgarner have lower ERAs in the majors.Kyles one of the best pitchers in the National League right now and nobody is talking about it, Maddon said.Carl Edwards Jr. struck out two in a perfect seventh and Travis Wood, Pedro Strop and Justin Grimm combined for the final six outs in Chicagos eighth shutout.Russells bases-loaded hit in the sixth was followed by pinch-hitter Matt Szczurs two-run single against Martin Perez (7-6).One of the runs was unearned after Fielder fired a throw high and wide of third in a rare start at first base due to interleague play.The sixth inning got away from us, Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. I felt like Martin was still making good pitches, still had life on his pitches. We just didnt help him out.The Cubs, who entered percentage points ahead of Texas for the second-best record in the majors behind San Francisco, had seven hits on an unseasonably cool, drizzly day with the wind blowing in.The breeze kept Rizzos drive to right in the park in the sixth that helped load the bases and extend his hitting streak to 100 games.

Two batters later Russell came through.Took a few days off and came back and felt great, Russell said.Albert Almora Jr. added two fine catches in center field, Ben Zobrist made a nifty play at third and catcher Willson Contreras threw out Rougned Odor stealing second.We played poorly the last three weeks or so and showed our vulnerability and humanity as a team, Cubs president Theo Epstein said. In the long run that might be a good thing because it means we know how hard we have to work and how well we have to play to get where we want to go.TRAINERS ROOMRangers: LHP Jake Diekman, who cut his left index finger on a beer mug earlier this month in Boston, was placed on the 15-day disabled list.
