Ferrari have been taking a bit of stick recently over the late pit stop contributing to Kimi R?ikk?nens loss of a podium place in Singapore. Its easy to be wise after the event when not faced with making an instant decision. Even simpler when you dont have half of Italy ready to trot out previous tactical failures in the event of what quickly becomes another very public disappointment.You may think that nothing has changed at Ferrari, but a recent book* makes it clear that the current difficulties at Maranello do not have the added stress of the team principal himself cranking up the tension. For all of Maurizio Arrivabenes perceived faults, at least he is thinking only of the good of the Scuderia rather than settling a personal score with one of his drivers.The 1983 season is mainly remembered for the championship battle between Renaults Alain Prost and the ultimate winner, Nelson Piquet in his Brabham-BMW. It is easy to forget that Patrick Tambay was in the mix until political and mechanical circumstances removed the Ferrari driver from contention and led to the Frenchman being dropped for 1984 before the season was done. It was a typically unfortunate end to a comparatively brief but frequently poignant journey.His F1 future seemingly on the rocks courtesy of uncompetitive cars from McLaren, Theodore and Ligier, Tambay got the career-reviving call from Maranello following the loss of his friend Gilles Villeneuve at Zolder in May 1982. As if that wasnt enough emotion, Tambay had to lift the team once again a couple of months later when Didier Pironi, the apparent shoo-in for the title, was seriously injured during Saturday morning practice at Hockenheim. You can imagine the outpouring of passion and gratitude a day later when Tambay scored his first Grand Prix win.But the feeling of personal sentiment would be even greater the following year when Tambay, starting from the same grid position used by Villeneuve for his last race, went on to win the San Marino Grand Prix for Gilles. There was hardly a dry eye in the house.You might be forgiven for thinking that all of this would elevate Tambay into a position of deity as Ferrari ran strongly for the 1983 championship. In fact, it would have the reverse effect within one significant corner of the teams infrastructure.Marco Piccinini was the team manager; a man who not only had the devout appearance a priest built but also acted like one during his divine daily communication as the link between Enzo Ferrari and what was going within the commendatores team. Tambay, for all his multi-lingual natural charm -- or, perhaps, because of it -- did not enjoy a close relationship with Piccinini; a fault line that would become a chasm in Detroit when Tambay made a serious misjudgement.Tiring of a familiar lecture on etiquette -- You will not fight against one another. You will not touch each other. You will follow team orders on the pit board -- Tambay chose to miss the pre-race briefing in preference for watching fellow-countryman Yannick Noah play in the French Open tennis final. I felt I could skip the briefing but I forgot to ask Piccinini for the authorisation to go to my hotel room [overlooking the track], says Tambay. It was a case of my disrespect of his authority. It was a big mistake and he was going to make me pay for it.While Tambay never did discover how the news of his disobedience was relayed to the Old Man, he got a sense of it when Piccinini overruled a decision on tyre choice made by Tambay and his engineer, Tommaso Carletti, who then overheard his driver telling Piccinini to get lost. Or words to that effect.Even allowing for R?ikk?nens renowned insouciance, this is not likely to be a conversation heard in the Ferrari garage these days thanks to Arrivabenes self-confessed awareness of his technical limitations. But in 1983, Tambay was not happy about his bosss false assumption of expert competence.He [Piccinini] wasnt a real specialist, says Tambay. He didnt fit the suit. I think he wanted to have more respect and consideration. But, for me, the important team management came from the technical staff: Mauro [Forghieri - the talented and hugely respected technical director] and Tommaso.Despite starting from the front row eight times in 1983, Tambay would win just once, his season peppered with technical failures, one particular engine blow-up being caused -- in Tambays view -- by being forced to race irascible teammate René Arnoux rather than preserving an easy one-two finish.The ultimate irony would be Ferrari choosing to keep Arnoux for 1984 and replacing Tambay with Michele Alboreto. Tambay received the bad news by telephone from a journalist [Piccinini claiming the line had been busy when he tried to call some hours before].Much as the team would grow to love Alboreto, they were as disturbed by Tambays dismissal as much as the manner of its delivery. At the final race in South Africa, Tambay gave his mechanics the $3000 prize for pole position. Deeply touched by the recognition more than the amount, the boys passed on the money to an Italian charity supporting muscular dystrophy, a cause personally supported by Enzo Ferrari after his son, Dino, had succumbed to the disease in 1956.The final paradox is that Tambay, now 67, is continuing a cheerful active life as best he can while coping with Parkinsons Disease. But none of this will detract from a career that, in his view, was more blessed than blighted. There can be no doubt about that when you read this detailed and extremely revealing story.* 27 Patrick Tambay - The Ferrari Years by Massimo Burbi (Evro Publishing) Saints Hoodies Shop . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. Cheap Saints Hoodies . LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. . The Browns coaching search remains incomplete. Alvin Kamara Hoodie .35 million, one-year contract that avoided salary arbitration. Plouffe batted .254 with 14 home runs and 52 RBIs in 477 at-bats last season, his second as a regular in the lineup. Boston Scott Hoodie . Now, with Game 6 set for Fenway Park and an 8:07 p.m. ET first pitch, the Detroit Tigers face the unenviable task of having to beat the Boston Red Sox twice, on the road, to advance to the World Series. Brendon de Jonge of Zimbabwe withdrew from the Summer Olympics on Tuesday because he didnt want to miss two tournaments in his bid to keep his PGA Tour card.De Jonge is the 12th player to pull out of the Rio de Janeiro Games, where golf will make its return after a 112-year absence.He is the first player to specifically cite the PGA schedule as it relates to keeping his full playing privileges for next year. De Jonge has missed the cut 15 times in 19 starts this year, plunging to No. 160 in the FedEx Cup standings.Only the top 125 golfers get into the FedEx Cup playoffs and keep their full cards for the next season. Because The Greenbrier Classic was canceled due to flooding, and also because de Jonge is not in the final major of the year, he has only five events left to improve his ranking.He said to compete in Rio would have meant missing the Travelers Championship, which ends the day after opening ceremonies, and the John Deere Classic. It also would have meant flying from Rio to North Carolina to prepare for the final event in the regular season.De Jonge has finished among the top 100 in each of the past six years.The reason for my decision is not my concern about the Zika virus, he said in a statement. It is truly a business decision. It would have been a great honor to play for my country. I am truly disappointed, but my current position on the FedEx Cup points list does noot allow me the luxury to skip the John Deere Classic or the Travelers Championship.ddddddddddddThis has to be a priority for me and my family.Seven of the other 12 players who have pulled out specifically cited Zika, including world No. 1 Jason Day and world No. 4 Rory McIlroy.De Jonges decision means that Zimbabwe is not likely to have a golfer in the Olympics. The countrys only hope to be represented in Rio is Scott Vincent, who would have to win this week on the Mackenzie Tour in Canada to move into the top 60 in the Olympic ranking and qualify for the games.Otherwise, Zimbabwe would join Fiji (Vijay Singh) in losing a spot because of a withdrawal.With de Jonge pulling out, Lin Wen-Tang would qualify and give Taiwan two spots in the 60-man field.Golf organizers, particularly the PGA Tour, had seven years to decide how to cope with the Olympic competition on a worldwide schedule. It already has crammed in three major championships over a seven-week stretch. Two of the final three events in the regular season, key for players to get into the top 125, conflict with the Olympics.Camilo Villegas of Colombia, while mentioning the Zika virus, also said his participation in the Summer Olympics could depend on his status in the FedEx Cup. He is at No. 141. Stitched NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Outlet Disocunt Football Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys White NFL Jerseys Cheap China NFL Jerseys White ' ' '
