Ferrari have three races to save title

FORMULA ONE: Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali believes his team's title challenge hinges on the next three grands prix.

Domenicali has claimed it is "crucial" for morale that Ferrari win either Sunday's British Grand Prix or one of the following two in Germany or Hungary prior to the summer break.

The Maranello marque are without a win since the season opener in Bahrain when Fernando Alonso crowned his Ferrari debut by taking the win at the Sakhir circuit.

Achilles injury puts Bolt's 200m season in jeopardy

ATHLETICS: Triple Olympic champion Usain Bolt's remaining 200m season may be in jeopardy because of a strained Achilles tendon. "I have no idea, but I am praying on it," said the Jamaican. "The doctor said in four weeks I should be OK."

Bolt has switched to the 100m from the 200m for tonight's Diamond League meeting in Lausanne to avoid further injury.

GOLF: Ireland's hopes of winning a third European Amateur team title in four years were dashed in Sweden yesterday when they failed to make the top flight for the match-play phase.

The six players finished in 16th place at the bottom of the second flight, with ninth position the best they can achieve. There was good news at the European Girls Team Championship in Denmark as Ireland made the quarter-finals. The holders qualified in second place on 430 (four over par).
