rt, and when Whitt spun his worn-outt tires, Allgaier and Jones fell way behind Suare
Ferrari boss Maurizio Arrivabene insists he has a fantastic relationship with Sebastian Vettel and says he has no problem with the German showing his emotions in or out of the car.Arrivabene and Vettels relationship has come under scrutiny in the second half of Ferraris winless 2016 campaign. Following Vettels angry radio tirade at the Mexican Grand Prix and subsequent apology to race director Charlie Whiting and the FIA, the German has faced questions about whether he has grown frustrated with Ferraris failure to live up to lofty pre-season expectations this year.Arrivabene has categorically stated Vettel is not losing his patience with Ferrari and in fact welcomes the four-time world champion being upset with finishing so far off first position.I have zero problem with Sebastian, Arrivabene said. I mean, as I said many, many times, Sebastian is quite emotional. Sometimes he looks a bit more Latino than German. I think Christian [Horner] knows the matter like I do.Hes very emotional, hes very passionate, especially when hes driving and its in a racing battle. Its not a question of frustration. Sometimes he can be unhappy as we are unhappy because our expectations are different. But hes not a guy who is giving up; hes a guy that is pushing like hell.Sometimes when the adrenalin is going up to the sky, maybe hes choosing a word more than what is expected, but then my role, like in Mexico, is also to call him and to invite him to be focused on what hes doing.Arrivabene says his relationship with Vettel is healthy and based on honesty and mutual respect.I spoke every day with Sebastian, and not only after the Mexican race. Somebody maybe thinks we have tension or things like this. No, we are honest with each other. The word honesty must sometimes be put in the script or in the article, because we have an honest, open, straightforward relationship and if you are asking me, we are always in agreement, like all human beings, sometimes yes, sometimes no.We have a fantastic relationship and its based on an honest, day after day feedback. I respect him as a driver, he was four times world champion. Hes putting all of himself into the job that hes doing. A couple of months ago, I said sometimes even too much but it was not a criticism. I want to make it clear, once and forever.Its because hes putting all of himself - he tries to put all of himself into everything hes doing and sometimes you just have to say, like in Mexico, hey Seb, calm down, head down, look in front of you and push. And theres nothing wrong with that so you ask me, you can ask him and you have the same version. Seahawks Jerseys Online .

HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- El campeon!Daniel Suarez won the Xfinity Series season finale and title at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Saturday, becoming the first foreign champion in a NASCAR national series.The 24-year-old Mexican bested fellow championship contenders Elliott Sadler, Justin Allgaier and Erik Jones on a botched restart with three laps to go.Its very hard to put into words, Suarez said. Im speechless right now. Im just very proud of everyone and thankful to have the family that I have, my mom, my dad. They gave me all the tools to be here right now. They put me in a car even when we didnt have the support or the racing background. They supported me, and right now we are just living a dream.Suarez thanked fans and his native country in Spanish in victory lane. His win was the first of the weekend for Joe Gibbs Racing, which has two drivers -- Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards -- vying for the Sprint Cup championship Sunday.For us, after two years, to be where we are tonight is amazing, car owner Joe Gibbs said. This is going to be a big deal for our sport. Its huge.It was just Suarezs third career victory, but the most important for obvious reasons.Sadler, who gambled by taking two tires on the final pit stop, finished third in the race and second in the standings. The former Cup driver and sentimental favorite remained without a championship at any national level in a career spanning more than two decades.This is by far the hardest because I feel like this is the best team Ive probably ever worked with, said Sadler, who drove with an interim crew chief because his usual one was suspended. We felt like we could come in here and compete, and we made a great pit call there at the end to get some clean air.Sadler asked Whitt to give him the top lane on the restart, but Whitt declined.Allgaier finished sixth, and Jones ninth. Both got stuck behind leader Cole Whitt on the final restart, and when Whitt spun his worn-outt tires, Allgaier and Jones fell way behind Suarez.dddddddddddd.Its really frustrating, Jones said. I dont mean to bag on the guy so much, but its like, `Hey, were up here racing for the championship. And maybe we dont even win it if he pits and lets us move up, but at least we would have had a fair shot at it. I feel like we kind of got robbed of at least our chance to race for it. Yeah, its just unfortunate. It just wasnt a great situation altogether.The chaos definitely benefited Suarez, who passed Sadler low and pulled away from the field. He led 133 of the 200 laps in the race.Last years top rookie in the second-tier series, Suarez began racing karts in Mexico and moved to North Carolina as a teenager to pursue a career at NASCARs national level. He had to teach himself English by watching cartoons on American television and moved through NASCARs Drive for Diversity program to land a job with JGR.Suarez is the first D4D driver to win a championship.Suarez has soared in his second season with Gibbs and benefited when teammate Jones, the pre-Chase favorite to win the title. As Jones struggled down the stretch, Suarez upped his performance. He won at Dover to move through the Round of 12 and was runner-up at Kentucky and third at Charlotte. Then, Suarez registered finishes of third (Kansas), fifth (Texas) and fifth (Phoenix) to set up his championship-clinching victory at Homestead.This will surely make him an even bigger star back home. On a return trip to Mexico with NASCAR officials last month, he was celebrated like he was Dale Earnhardt Jr.For Gibbs, it is his second driver championship in the Xfinity Series but first since Kyle Busch won in 2009.The Gibbs organization also celebrated its fifth owners championship in the Xfinity Series.---More AP auto racing: Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2019 ' ' '
