This is the year Valtteri Bottas needs to step up, dominate his intra-team battle at Williams with Felipe Massa and prove he is a future F1 champion. Air Max Flyknit Shoes Price . The 2011 GP3 champion is regularly tipped for the big time and was heavily linked with Ferrari in 2015, but the Scuderia reportedly decided the Finn wasnt worth the money - reputedly £10m - it would take to extract him from his Williams contract.Bottas has finished ahead of his team-mate in the drivers standings every year during his F1 career. Of the current field, its a boast that only Felipe Nasr and Max Verstappen can match - and theyve yet to start their second seasons in the sport. The Finns F1 record certainly stands scrutiny. In his rookie campaign of 2013 he scored four points to Pastor Maldonados one, in 2014 he scored 52 more points than Massa and in 2015 he beat the Brazilian by 15 points despite starting one less race.But lets play devils advocate for a moment. If Bottas is to be more than just a very good F1 driver should he not be beating Massa by a more considerable margin? The Brazilian was only fleetingly considered Ferraris best bet for a championship, spending most of his time as the No 2 driver. That only 15 points separated a driver reaching his peak driving years and another in the twilight of his career will be a concern. So what does Bottas need to do in 2016? He needs to produce the kind of domination Sebastian Vettel has enjoyed over Kimi Raikkonen at Ferrari - particularly if he is to prove himself a better proposition than his compatriot.The German finished 128 points ahead of his veteran team-mate. Vettel also out-qualified Raikkonen 15-4 - rather more impressive than Bottas 11-8 victory over Massa.Thats the sort of resounding advantage Bottas must be aiming for. Perhaps that will be made possible this year by a tighter fight for third in the Constructors Championship. For the past two years Williams have been the clear third-best team, meaning Bottas and Massa were always likely to finish in close proximity to each other.If Red Bull return to form in 2016, and Force India and Toro Rosso carry their testing pace into the season, Williams could find themselves under pressure.A multi-car squabble could potentially give Bottas the opportunity to shine if he can finish with several cars between himself and Massa. It might even suggest he is outperforming the FW38. There is a feeling that this is a make or break year for Bottas with the driver market set for a reshuffle in 2017 with potential vacancies at Ferrari and Mercedes.At 26, he is no longer a youngster by modern F1 standards. Eighteen-year-old Max Verstappen is the new hot property on the grid, while Carlos Sainz and Daniil Kvyat are just 21.Like Bottas, Nico Hulkenberg was tipped to star for one of the top teams, but at 28 is now considered to have missed his chance at F1s top table. And there is a danger Bottas could do the same.However, the prospect of new rules in 2017 could see some teams opt for an experienced head which could give the Finn an edge over some talented youngsters. With a 2017 vacancy at Ferrari highly likely, Bottas needs to comprehensively outperform Massa, particularly in the first half of 2016, to demonstrate he is worthy of a seat alongside Vettel.The first race of the 2016 F1 season, the Australian GP, is exclusively live on Sky Sports F1.

JOHNS, N. http://www.airmaxflyknitsale.com/ .ca! Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all players are responsible for their sticks.

Editors note: Starting next week, ESPN.com is counting down the best basketball sneakers of all time, #NBArank style. But first we asked a few writers to share about their favorite kicks.The Air Force 1 is, at the end of the day, in this entire sneakerhead epidemic, a shoe for the people. Forever reppin what the marriage between the game and the soul of the game is supposed to be.This to me was the most important shoe in basketball history, said Ray Butts, architect of Sole Provider: 30 Years of Nike Basketball, when?reflecting on the Air Force 1.The true story of the Air Force 1 is closer to the story of the black renaissance, and the reason gear, fit, and merch mean so much to lower-income minorities, especially many African-Americans, who throughout history have used sports, entertainment and hustle as a lifeline to survival and escape.But it has also lived the life of excess. Its been on Jay-Zs feet in concerts and commercials. Its been in songs by Nelly, then a classic by Kanye, KRS-One, Nas and Rakim. Its been on Seinfeld!?For true, it is a shoe for the people, but it still has a vainglorious history of the fab life.Put it best this way: If it were a city, itd be Brooklyn: Park Slope and Bed-Stuy.What began in 1982 as an innovating design and construct with the intent of revolutionizing the sole of the game, the Air Force 1 went from being the shoe that defined the games of Bobby Jones, Michael Cooper, Jamaal Wilkes and Moses Malone to the shoe that defined everything Rasheed Wallace was about as a player and a person. Nike Air Max Flyknit Mens On Sale. And somewhere in between, the streets took hold.Part of the reason the hood took ownership of the Air Force 1 is because of the affordability. Staying 100 (unless they were LEs, PEs, signatures, customized or bespokes) for less than $100 is an art. With the AF1 having a design so universally clean and simple, it adapted to damn near any trend of black fashion and style.The Air Force 1 is the only shoe that belongs to a particular culture, said Isaac Perry, former host of a Nike digital shoe documentary Laced, speaking on the shoes 25th anniversary in 2007.And because of that, the value of the shoe has not diminished.And it never will. Even as the landscape of both basketball shoes and lifestyle sneakers evolve into a Westworldish/Westbrookish future, the one that started it all still lives the life of champagne wishes and concrete dreams.Harlem to Hollywood. And back.A life, uninterrupted. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
