FOOTBALL – WOMEN’S WORLD CUP IN FRANCE
The tournament enters its decisive phase in July and we will be treated to the semifinals and the final as well as the 3rd & 4th play-off. Will the team with the richest history add to its record? The United States team already has 7 World Cup medals, including 3 golds up to this point.
July sees the British Grand Prix at Silverstone and the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim. These races will have special significance for Lewis Hamilton. This year he will have the chance to beat the record for wins at both tracks. For the moment Hamilton has 4 wins in Germany, just like Michael Schumacher and 5 wins in Great Britain – as many as Jim Clark and Alain Prost. We can’t wait to see if he will end up holding these records alone!
