ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - In a widely expected shake-up, four-time Formula One champion Sebastian Vettel will replace two-time champion Fernando Alonso at Ferrari next season. Daniel Sprong Jersey .The 27-year-old German will be leaving Red Bull for the Italian team on a three-year deal, Ferrari said Thursday.The dream of a lifetime has come true. When I was a kid, Michael Schumacher in the red car was my greatest idol and now its an incredible honour to finally get the chance to drive a Ferrari, Vettel said. I am extremely motivated to help the team get back to the top.Alonso, a 33-year-old Spaniard who won his two titles with Renault in 2006 and 06, had said earlier this season that his future was elsewhere. His destination remains unclear, but he is expected to join McLaren.With Alonso sitting beside him Thursday, Vettel heaped praise on his new team.I think it will be a special journey, not even the first race but even winter testing, Vettel said. To step into the car, I think it will remain with you for the rest of your life.Alonso expressed his frustration with Ferarri last year after the Hungarian Grand Prix. That earned him a public rebuke from the team and led to rumours that he was on his way out.In five seasons with Ferrari, Alonso finished runner-up to Vettel three times, including in 2012 and 2013. He pushed Vettel two years ago — finishing three points behind — but in last years championship Vettel beat him by 155 points.Even the prospect of a new deal at Ferrari couldnt change Alonsos mind.I felt it was the time to find new projects and motivation. I was in talks even last year to be honest, Alonso said. This year I felt around summertime, September, that it was time to move.Alonso, who won 11 races for Ferrari and secured 44 podium places, thanked the team for not standing in his way.They could say, No, but this is a true sign of love and respect from this team, Alonso said. From Monday (onward) I will be a true Ferrari supporter.His final race will be on Sunday at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. He is fifth in the overall standings and has managed only two podium places this season. His last win was at the Spanish GP last May.We offer him our heartfelt thanks for what has been an extraordinary adventure with the Scuderia, Ferrari team principal Marco Mattiacci said.Alonso entered the final race in Abu Dhabi four years ago with an eight-point lead. But Vettel won the first of his four straight titles with Red Bull that year.Alonso drove alongside Brazilian driver Felipe Massa for four seasons, but they struggled to match Red Bulls speed. Things got worse this season — both for Alonso alongside Finnish driver Kimi Raikkonen, and for Vettel alongside Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo — with Mercedes winning 15 of 18 races so far and taking pole position in 17.The 27-year-old Vettels fall from the pinnacle of the sport was as spectacular as it was unexpected.After winning 13 races last season — including the last nine — Vettel has won zero races this year while being upstaged by Ricciardo, who has won three. Vettel has been on the podium only four times and is fourth overall, two points ahead of Alonso and 55 behind Ricciardo.Vettels arrival at Ferrari has an added advantage. He is good friends with the 35-year-old Raikkonen, the 2007 F1 champion with Ferrari.On a personal level, (hes) very straightforward, Vettel said of his future teammate. We have a great respect for each other.McLarens seats are currently taken by former champion Jenson Button and promising driver Kevin Magnussen of Denmark.Sundays race could be Buttons last.When youre in Formula One for so many years, 15 years, this is your life, the 34-year-old British driver said. But when you are put in an uncomfortable situation your eyes are open to different possibilities and there are a lot of challenges out there. Custom Pittsburgh Penguins Jerseys .

Judging by his performance Saturday night, Cotto has plenty left in the tank. Cotto became the first Puerto Rican fighter to win world championships in four weight divisions, stopping Sergio Martinez in their WBC world middleweight title fight Saturday night. "It was a reflection of my hard work (for) 10, 11 weeks," Cotto said. Martinez didnt get off the stool when the bell rang for the 10th round. He did not speak to the media after the fight, as he was taken to a hospital as a precaution. "Miguel beat him from pillar to post," said Martinezs promoter, Lou DiBella. "Miguel Cotto is a great champion." Cotto improved to 39-4 and is 8-1 at Madison Square Garden. Martinez fell to 51-3-2. According to Todd duBoef, the President of Top Rank, the attendance was 21,090, and the gross gate was under $5 million. In the week leading up to the fight, Roach, Cottos trainer, said his pupil would be able to use his footwork to control the fight, and still possessed power even though he moved up in weight class. Cotto proved Roach right from the opening bell, knocking down Martinez twice in the first round with a flurry of body shots. As the fight progressed, Cotto pressured Martinez around the ring, and attacked when openings were presented. Cotto won every round, including a 10-6 first. "Miguel fought a really great fight," Roach said. "Thank you, Miguel, for making me look so good. "He really gave the guy a boxing lesson." Martinez forced Cotto to fight in the middle of the ring instead of on the ropes or in thee corners. Olli Maatta Jersey. But Cotto was able to land a variety of jabs and hooks. By the end of the eighth round, Martinez had swelling around his right eye. He also had a cut on his forehead due to a head-butt. Both cuts were glued shut. Cotto landed 54 per cent of his punches, and 54 per cent of his power punches. By comparison, Martinez connected on 31 per cent of his punches, and landed 60 of 157 power punches. "Martinez couldnt hurt him," Roach said. "Miguel listened to the game plan." The Cotto-Martinez fight was the main event of a nine-fight card. Marvin Sonsona (19-1-1) became the NABF featherweight champion with a 10-round split decision win over Wilfredo Vasquez Jr (23-4-1). "Hes a dirty, rotten fighter," Vasquez said. "When I pressured him, he held. He landed one good punch, the punch that knocked me down." Javier Maciel (29-3) won the USNBC super welterweight title, defeating Jorge Melendez (28-4-1) by split decision, and Andy Lee (32-2) stopped John Jackson (18-2) with a left hook in the fifth round. "I ran into a bad one," Jackson said. "What a lucky punch." Prior to the main card bouts, Felix Verdejo improved to 13-0 with a first-round technical knockout of Engelberto Valenzuela (9-2); and Jose Lopez (13-0) won an eight-round unanimous decision over Raul Hidalgo (21-11-0-1) to retain the WBC super bantam FECARBOX title.
