SPIELBERG, Austria -- Lewis Hamilton claimed a dramatic last-lap victory at the Austrian Grand Prix after colliding with teammate Nico Rosberg while passing for the lead. Danilo Gallinari Nuggets Jersey .?The battle had been brewing for several laps and Hamilton seized the opportunity on the outside of Turn 2, with Rosberg going deep into the corner and colliding with his teammate. The incident wiped out Rosbergs front wing and the championship leader had to crawl to the flag, dropping to fourth behind Max Verstappen and Kimi Raikkonen in the final corners.?Despite starting sixth, Rosberg led Hamilton for the majority of the race as he benefitted from an alternative strategy and two slow Hamilton pit stops. However, in the final three laps Hamilton closed on Rosberg and he finally got his chance to pass on the approach to Turn 2 on the final lap.Rosberg took the inside line, forcing Hamilton to try his chances on the outside, but the German -- who appeared to be suffering with a brake issue -- went deep into the corner and a collision became inevitable. The impact damaged Rosbergs front wing, making him a sitting duck on the following straight as Hamilton rejoined the track at full speed and retook the lead.Rosberg also faces an stewards investigation for failing to stop with a seriously damaged car, which could drop him further down the order. The result as it currently stands provides yet another twist in the tale of the 2016 drivers championship, with Rosbergs lead cut from 24 points to 11.Daniel Ricciardo will be disappointed to finish fifth ahead Jenson Button and Romain Grosjean, who both outperformed their cars to score solid points for McLaren and Haas respectively. Carlos Sainz recovered from an engine failure in qualifying to finish eighth ahead of Valtteri Bottas in the Williams and Pascal Wehrlein, who scored the first point of his career and Manors first point since Monaco 2014.The story of the raceHamilton led from the start but was shuffled behind Rosberg at the first round of pit stops. Rosberg pitted on lap 10 after working his way up to third place in the opening stint, while Hamilton waited until lap 21 to make his first stop. The long first stint appeared to be in reaction to Ferrari, whose cars both started on the super-softs and were running long into the race, but it ultimately cost Hamilton time compared to his teammate. By staying out on older tyres both Hamilton and the Ferraris lost out as Rosberg made up time with a series of impressive laps on his new set of soft tyres. After a 4.2s pit stop, Hamilton rejoined behind Rosberg on lap 21 but his tyres were 11 laps younger.Sebastian Vettel, who had yet to pit, dropped out of the lead after suffering a right-rear tyre blowout on a 27-lap old set of super-softs. The incident brought out a safety car for four laps, which played into Rosbergs hands by extending his stint length on soft tyres. There was some speculation over whether the Mercedes would finish without a second stop, as Verstappen and Raikkonen ultimately did, but on lap 54 it became clear the pair would have to pit again.Hamilton had a second slow stop as he took on another set of soft tyres, meaning Rosberg retained the lead when he pitted a lap later for super-softs. Initially the difference in tyre compound appeared to hand Rosberg the advantage, but an apparent brake issue in the final laps saw his small lead come under threat in the final three laps. Hamilton did not need asking twice, and after a couple of dummy runs on the 69th and 70th laps, finally lined Rosberg up for his move at Turn 2 on lap 71. The resulting collision could split the Mercedes garage once more, with team boss Toto Wolff calling the incident brainless, but sets the scene for a tantalising British Grand Prix at Silverstone next weekend.Nikola Jokic Jersey .

Jon Montgomery of Eckville, Alta. England captain Jos Buttler has said that he wants to show the way for his young side with his own performances in the one-day series against Bangladesh that begins on Friday. Buttler will become his countrys first wicketkeeper-captain in ODIs since Alec Stewart last did the job in 2003.The role becomes more challenging in the conditions in Dhaka where the first match is taking place. The humidity has been quite high, which has made the heat harsher. But there is also rain in the air, at least on the day before the game, which could cause difficulties with selection as there is likely to be slight change in pitch behaviour.Buttler has only previously captained England in one T20 against Pakistan last year so the Bangladesh experience will be the first time he has the role for an entire series. He wants to enjoy the new challenge and is eager to get started.I think something I really want to try and do is lead from the front with performance, Buttler said. Im desperate to do it. Its a young and exciting squad and its down to me to stand up and lead from the front. It will be a very proud moment. Its a fantastic honour to lead the side and to walk out as captain. It will be a little bit surreal I guess but I want to enjoy the challenge, take it in my stride and be myself. I want to get on with the job and hopefully lead he side to a series win.Buttler was made captain after Eoin Morgan pulled out of the tour for security reasons. So did Alex Hales while Joe Root was rested for the limited-overs leg. Places were opened up as a result, and now it appears James Vince and Ben Duckett will bat in Englands top-order in the first ODI. Both batted reasonably well in the practice match against the BCB XI though Duckett got out when his bat flew out of his hand as he attempted a reverse sweep offf Shuvagata Hom. JaVale McGee Jersey. Buttler said that Ducketts runs this county season will give him the confidence to start off his international career and he expects the newcomer to bat just like he did for Northamptonshire this season. Hes had a fantastic year, hes high on confidence and I think the group hes coming into, hes played a lot of cricket with the guys in the squad and hes obviously very important around the guys, Buttler said.I expect him to go out there and play the way thats been successful for him so far. Its an exciting debut for someone who has really stood up with the volume of runs and the fashion hes been doing it in. All the guys are very excited for him and I expect him to go out there and enjoy it and relish the occasion and make the most of it.Buttler believes that the England side has the ability to adjust to conditions. So even though he hadnt seen the pitch until the press conference at around 3.00pm on Thursday, he was confident that his team would understand the importance of starting well in a short ODI series such as this.A big strength of England cricket in all forms now is looking at what we do well and concentrating on our strengths so we will be looking at what we can bring tomorrow. Adapting to the conditions will be massive.Weve only played one warm-up game and had a couple of practice sessions so come tomorrow we will have to have that ODI intensity and hit the ground running. A couple of times in recent series we havent started as well as wed like to so thats something everyone is very aware of. This is only a three-match series so each game is absolutely vital. To hit the ground running as best we can, it will be huge. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
