experience that positions him

    Lewis Hamilton remained on top at the Russian GP in Practice Three after a session-long battle for supremacy with Nico Rosberg, setting up the likelihood of a closely-fought all-Mercedes duel for pole. [b]Kyler Murray Cardinals Jersey[/b] . The triple world champion had set the Friday pace but came under renewed attack from Rosberg on Saturday morning as the Mercedes W07 again proved untouchable around the Sochi Autodrom. Trading fastest times on the supersoft tyres throughout the hour-long session, Hamilton usurped Rosberg in the closing minutes via a best lap of 1:36.403.However, the championship-leading Rosberg remained just 0.068s adrift in the final reckoning, despite making several errors during the session as drivers again struggled for grip.That is a very close battle between Hamilton and Rosberg, said Sky Sports F1 commentator David Croft. It seems as though the Mercedes are going to be going for pole themselves. Ferraris Sebastian Vettel narrowly avoids colliding into the Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton in the pitlane during P3 in Sochi. Despite introducing an upgraded engine this weekend, Ferrari have yet to show they are capable of taking it to the world champions on outright pace and finished P3 in familiar third and fourth positions.But the team already know they will not lock out the second row on Sundays grid after a five-place gearbox change penalty was confirmed for Sebastian Vettel on Friday night.When is Russian GP Qualy and Race?The German finished third, six tenths back on Hamilton, having spent the start of the session on heavier-fuel long runs with 20 laps on used supersoft tyres.Once onto shorter runs, Vettel was twice frustrated by the sister Ferrari of Raikkonen - with the German waving a hand in his team-mates direction after being overtaken near the pits.And then Vettel had to have his wits about him when leaving the Ferrari garage when a mechanic inadvertently waved him into the path of an oncoming Hamilton. Behind the established top two teams, Williams appear primed for a more competitive weekend with Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas finishing in fifth and sixth positions respectively.With Red Bull - the third-fastest team so far this season - not faring as well in P3, Max Verstappen was seventh for sister team Toro Rosso, while eighth-fastest Jenson Button gave McLaren-Honda hope that this could be the weekend they finally break their long Q3 duck.Practice Three timesheet1.

[b]Chandler Jones Jersey[/b] .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons.SALT LAKE CITY -- The Utah Jazz announced Friday that they have hired Atlanta Hawks assistant coach Quin Snyder to replace Tyrone Corbin, who was let go earlier this year after three-plus seasons as the head coach in Salt Lake City. Snyder most recently completed his first season as an assistant with Atlanta. He has also been an assistant with the Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Clippers. He was the head coach at Missouri for seven seasons, from 1999 to 2006, leading the Tigers to four NCAA tournaments. That included an Elite Eight appearance in 2002. "He has an impressive basketball pedigree, including more than a decade of head coaching experience that positions him well to succeed in the Jazz organization," Jazz CEO Greg Miller said in a statement. "We look forward to Quins contributions both on the court and in the community." Snyder succeeds Corbin, who was not offered a new contract. Corbin went 112-146 in Salt Lake City after taking over on Feb. 10, 2011, following the resignation of Jerry Sloan, for whom he played three seasons and served as a longtime assistant. Corbin reached the pllayoffs in the strike-shortened 2011-12 season, but his team was swept by San Antonio in the first round of the playoffs. [b]Christian Kirk Youth Jersey[/b]. The Jazz went 43-39 the next season and dumped a number of veterans. This season, they went 25-57, the worst record for the Jazz since 1979-80, when Utah was 24-58 following the franchises relocation from New Orleans. Other candidates for the job included Clippers assistant Alvin Gentry and Bulls assistant Adrian Griffin. "The opportunity to join the Utah Jazz and to be part of such a highly respected franchise with an incredibly bright future is a great honour," Snyder said in a statement. "I approach this opportunity with gratitude and humility and am committed to doing everything I can to help the Jazz become a championship-calibre team." Former Jazz forward Paul Millsap, who went to Atlanta last season, posted to Twitter: "Congratulations to Quin Snyder for being named head coach of the (at)utahjazz!!! The Jazz are getting a great coach and person." Snyder is the eighth head coach in Jazz history. The team planned a news conference on Saturday. ' ' '
