The FIA has rejected Ferraris appeal against Sebastian Vettels time penalty in the Mexican Grand Prix. However, Ferrari have reserved their right to launch a fresh appeal and notified the FIA of their intention. They have until Tuesday to formalise any challenge.Mexican GP stewards, who reconvened in a teleconference on Friday, decided there was no new element in the case despite submissions from Ferrari claiming there was. Vettel was handed a 10-second time penalty and dropped from third to fifth in the Mexican GP results on October 30 after being found to have illegally moved under braking to defend against Red Bulls Daniel Ricciardo.He became the first driver to be punished under the new regulation clamping down on drivers making such defensive moves - dubbed the Verstappen rule.Citing unspecified new evidence on their arrival at the Brazilian GP, Ferrari asked the FIA to review the incident and the governing body arranged a conference call between the three Mexico stewards, the Italian team and Red Bull on Thursday afternoon. Race Director Charlie Whiting joins the drivers press conference to explain the penalty given to Sebastian Vettel whilst battling with Daniel Ricciardo The FIA revealed Ferraris argument rested on two points.Firstly, that race director Charlie Whiting had the power to order Verstappen to give a place to Vettel the Dutchman had held on to by running off the track at the first corner in the incident that preceded the Ferrari drivers battle with Ricciardo.Whens the Brazilian GP on Sky F1?And, secondly, that GPS data it presented represented a new element in the case.However, Mexican GP stewards ruled that neither aspect counted as new evidence.In relation to the matter of the Race Director having the power to instruct the driver of Car 33 to give back the alleged advantage, we note firstly that the relevant article gives the Race Director absolute authority to allow the driver to give back a position, read the FIAs verdict statement. Ferraris Sebastian Vettel became increasingly frustrated and let rip a barrage of expletive laden radio messages throughout the Mexican GP. It does not imply an obligation to do so. The fact that the Race Director did not exercise his discretion is not relevant to the decision taken in Document 38.In relation to the GPS data, we note that this data is available to teams during the race. It is also available to, and referred to by, the stewards, in the Stewards Room during the race.The FIA added that Jock Clear, Ferraris representative in the teleconference, conceded the GPS data did not contradict the stewards original verdict.Ferrari had earlier told Sky Sports F1 that the team had requested a review of the incident in order to set a precedent for what kind of defensive moves were permissable under the revised regulations.Can Nico Rosberg clinch the title at Interlagos?

Louis Cardinals are one of Major League Baseballs model franchises.MILWAUKEE -- Marcus Thornton knew he was getting a second chance with the Nets and he made the most of it in just his third game with his new team. Thornton scored 12 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter to lead Brooklyn to a 107-98 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night. Brooklyns Kevin Garnett missed the game with back spasms but wasnt needed as the Nets never trailed in the second half against the NBAs worst team. Thornton, playing in his third game for Brooklyn since being obtained in a Feb. 19 trade with Sacramento, came off the bench to make 8 of 13 from the field to help the Nets finish their seven-game road trip 4-3. "Im coming to a team with all these veterans, that know how to win, that have championship aspirations and have championships under their belts already, and a coach that has a championship, too," Thornton said. "I knew it would be a great situation." The 6-foot-4 guard signed a four-year, $31.2 million contract with Sacramento in 2011, but averaged only 8.3 points while shooting 38 per cent in 46 games for the Kings this season. Nets coach Jason Kidd wanted to see whether Thornton -- criticized by Sacramento coach Michael Malone for his defensive play -- could step up offensively and defensively at the end of games. "I want to find out coming down the stretch defensively can guys count on him, and then offensively can we count on him," Kidd said. "We know he can shoot the ball, put the ball in the basket, but coming down the stretch can he make plays? "This was a great opportunity to see that after a long trip, he stepped up," Kidd said. Milwaukee coach Larry Drew said his team struggled defensively, allowing 42 points in the paint. "Just too many defensive mistakes," he said. "Bad rotations. Going into the game one of the things we wanted to do was really try to affect them down on the block." Andray Blatche added 19 points and 13 rebounds for Brooklyn, including eight points and 10 rebounds in the fourth quarter. Jason Collins, who signed a 10-day contract with Brooklyn last Sunday, was held scoreless in 8 minutes. Khris Middleton and Ramon Sessions scored 16 points apiece for Milwwaukee.dddddddddddd. "We didnt get the stops we needed," Middleton said. "We let them get so many things too easy. Our room for error is very small." Brooklyn has gone 18-8 in 2014 after opening the season 10-21. The Nets (28-29) play Chicago at home on Monday night with the chance to get back to .500 for the first time since being 2-2 on Nov. 5. "I dont think we have to concentrate on that right now," Andrei Kirilenko said of getting to .500. "We have been playing pretty good games. We need to stick with our game plan. Thats the only thing." The Nets play seven of their next 10 games at home, where they have won 10 of their last 12. Thornton hit a pair of 3-pointers, Paul Pierce made another 3 and Blatche scored on a putback as Brooklyn used an 11-6 run to open a 100-91 lead with 2:46 left. "I kind of felt disrespected because he played so far back," Thornton said with a laugh of Milwaukees Jeff Adrien while talking about his fourth-quarter jumpers. "It was one of those things. I tried to make the shots when the opportunity presented itself." Milwaukee never got closer than six points the rest of the game. Mirza Teletovic hit a 3-pointer to cap an 8-2 run opening the fourth quarter, giving the Nets an 85-74 lead with 10:04 left in the game. The Bucks then had an 11-4 run to pull within 89-85 on a pair of free throws by Giannis Antetokounmpo before Thornton sparked the Nets down the stretch. Brooklyn used a 20-11 run to open the second half and took a 75-64 lead on Joe Johnsons 3-pointer with 4:27 to go in the third quarter. Deron Williams scored 13 points in the first half and the Nets took a 55-53 lead at halftime. Brooklyn took the lead for good, 43-40, on Thorntons 3-pointer with 7:29 to go in the second quarter.
