Sebastian Vettel always said he joined Ferrari to emulate his childhood hero Michael Schumacher and win a world championship. Unfortunately, when he reflects on his storied career, it will simply go down as an unfulfilled dream.

The Scuderia announced early on Tuesday that contract talks broke down between the pair with no agreement, making this year the German’s last at the Prancing Horse.

Where the 32-year-old will go now and who will replace him at Ferrari are the big questions.

A four-time world champion, Ferrari provided him with a car to challenge at the top, however they were never able

LOS ANGELES — Although the blueprint drawn by Dante Fowler last season doesn’t precisely fit Leonard Floyd, it’s plenty close enough to thrill Floyd about the chance to turbo-charge his career with the Los Angeles Rams.

In just 1 1/2 seasons with the Rams, Fowler transformed himself from another team’s underachieving top-10 pick into an elite NFL pass rusher who landed a $45 million free-agent contract from Atlanta last month.

Fowler’s pass-rushing replacement in Los Angeles could be Floyd, another top-10 pick who hasn’t reached the success and stardom expected of him.

The Chicago Bears released Floyd in March after

Steve Nash, a Hall of Famer and legend in his own right, is not ashamed to admit he’s been star struck before.

In a conversation with TNT’s Ernie Johnson on Monday night, Nash recalled his earliest encounter with Michael Jordan — which led to a request for the G.O.A.T.’s famed footwear.

On the night of Nov. 11, 1996, Nash was sitting on the Phoenix Suns’ bus after a game in Chicago when his teammate Chucky Brown strolled by with

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — NASCAR’s season started with the Secret Service doing a security check on the firesuit-clad pole-sitter for the Daytona 500 and thousands of fans waiting hours in line to pass through a metal detector.

When the season resumes on Sunday some 13 weeks later, drivers will have their temperatures taken as they enter Darlington Raceway in South Carolina and they will be wearing masks as they leave their isolated motorhomes and make their way to their cars. There will be no fans allowed inside.

Faced with many of its teams falling into financial ruin, NASCAR is waving the

Approaches have never been much a problem for Mike Weir, so when asked about being on the eve of his 50th birthday the Canadian golf legend handled it like he would a 100-yard gap wedge.

“The interesting thing in pro golf is you look forward to your 50th birthday, instead of dreading it,” laughed Weir, who hits the half-century mark Tuesday.

“We have this great, second kick at it. Golf is a sport we can play for a long period of time at a highly competitive level, unlike other sports.”

After more than a decade of battling injuries while struggling

Canada’s National Bank is offering cash grants to each of 23 tennis players from the country who are facing financial issues because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Tennis Canada announced the grants of $10,000 to $20,000 in Canadian dollars, or about $7,000 to $14,000 in U.S. dollars, from National Bank on Monday, saying the amounts will depend on a player’s ranking.
