MOTORSPORT – Mark Webber’s former team, Red Bull, will soon have a fourth engine supplier, replacing Honda. McLaren are working on a new engine from Honda-owner Honda, the first since 2000. Most thought Red Bull had signed Renault and McLaren had a deal with Toyota but the two engine deals do not make perfect sense.

RACING – Adam Peaty won the 50th British Grand Prix at the Brake Arena in Sheffield. Peaty cruised to victory in the men’s 100m breaststroke event in a British record time of 56.88 seconds.

CYCLING – Mark Cavendish has had an important tune-up for the Tour de France with the sprint victory in Stage 2 of the Rio edition of the Tour of California. Cavendish is in good form and, after he’s joined by Sir Bradley Wiggins in next year’s Team Sky, he could have one of the most exciting combination of sprinting talent to ever ride the Tour.

FOOTBALL – The Championship will be played a fourth time next season, with automatic promotion based on results from the previous three divisions. The second tier will remain as it is, with second-tier clubs having to fight for a place in the Championship.
