Say hello to the beautiful Formula 1 grid girls from the United States Grand Prix at Circuit of The Americas.
Sebastian Vettel climbed out of his Red Bull car, pumped his right first then held up eight fingers, one for each of his consecutive victories.
Formula One’s German dominator just keeps on winning.
The four-time world champion won the U.S. Grand Prix in easy fashion Sunday, setting an F1 season record with his eighth straight victory behind another blistering drive that gave the field no chance to catch him.
For yet another year, thousands of fans take to the streets of Marc Marquez’ home town to congratulate the MotoGP rookie title winner.
The MotoGP World Championship concluded last weekend with the Valencian Grand Prix, and with a new title winner in Marc Marquez. His neighbors in Cervera, Lleida, took to the streets to celebrate upon the champion’s return, decorating the town with the name and number of the Repsol rider to provide a hero’s welcome.
As they did in 2010 for Marquez winning the 125cc World Championship and last year for the star’s Moto2 title triumph, fans banded together to make the homecoming an event to remember. Marquez – who debuted in Grand Prix racing with Repsol backing in 2008 – was accompanied by his brother – and Moto3 Rookie of the Year– Alex at a press conference, before being paraded through the streets of Cervera in an open-top car.

World champion Sebastien Ogier capped his title-winning season with another victory at the Wales Rally on Sunday.
The Frenchman claimed his ninth win of the year ahead of Volkswagen teammate Jari-Matti Latvala. Thierry Neuville, in a Ford, ended third, a result that allowed the Belgian to finish runner-up in the overall standings.
Ogier clinched his first world title in front of his home fans last month at the Rally France.
