ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates -- Lewis Hamilton may have driven himself into trouble with his Mercedes team after defying direct orders near the end of Sundays gripping Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, where the British driver lost his title to teammate Nico Rosberg in a nerve-shredding finale. Jeremiah George Jersey .Hamilton won the race but needed Rosberg to finish outside of the top three in order to retain his title.In order to further this bid, he used a technique known as backing up. It was designed to slow Rosberg down and allow pursuing drivers Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari and Dutch teen Max Verstappen of Red Bull to catch up.Had they both overtaken Rosberg, then Hamiltons win would have been enough for the title. Vettel and Verstappen were right on Rosbergs tail in the closing stages as Hamilton refused to accelerate -- even after Mercedes asked him twice.First of all, Hamilton ignored a race engineers request for him to speed up and then even rebuffed executive director Paddy Lowes explicit order to speed up.Im in the lead right now, he responded to Lowe. Im quite comfortable where I am.Wolff described Loews intervention as the highest escalation (procedure) we have.And he appeared to issue a warning.Anarchy doesnt work in any team or any company, he said. Undermining a structure in public means youre putting yourself before the team.Asked if Hamilton could face punishment, Wolff said: I need to form an opinion, which I havent yet and everythings possible.Rosbergs view was diplomatic.You can understand the teams perspective and you can understand Lewis perspective, the German driver said. So thats it.Mercedes wanted Hamilton to speed up because it was concerned that Vettel was gaining ground and could have won the race.Hamilton was totally unapologetic over the incident in the post-race news conference.Instead, he openly complained about what he considered to be overly zealous interference.I dont know why they just didnt let us just race. There was never a moment where I thought I was going to lose the race, Hamilton said. Its a bit of a shame they wouldnt (just let us race). Its clear (what) their thought process (is).Hamilton wasnt finished.We had already won the constructors championship, so it was down to me and Nico today. However, they still felt that they needed to make comments, Hamilton said. Im in a position where Ive had a lot of points lost in the season, so for me Im out there fighting.Hamiltons latest reference to lost points is a continuation of previous complaints throughout the season with regards to the engine problems that cost him vital points. None more so than during the Malaysian GP, when his engine failed as he was closing in on an easy victory.When I look back on the season, if theres anything to be negative about (it) would be cars failing in certain places, Hamilton said on Thursday. (With the same engine) as the car that wouldnt stop during testing.On Thursday, Hamilton had also brought up another issue that still rankles with him.Prior to the start of the season, Mercedes swapped several mechanics around from each side of the garage in a bid to end the divide that had been growing between the two drivers groups.Youll have to buy my book ... down the line ... in 10 years time when I tell you exactly what happened, the British driver said. It will be an interesting read.In the immediate future, it will also be interesting to see how Mercedes handles this latest incident with Hamilton now that the season is over. Daurice Fountain Jersey . LOUIS -- Rookie Tavon Austin has missed another day of practice, lessening the odds hell be ready for the St. Braden Smith Jersey . -- In a span of seven Washington Redskins offensive plays, Justin Tuck sacked Robert Griffin III four times. http:///...nate-hairston-jersey . Bradwell was scheduled to become a free agent Tuesday. Born and raised in Toronto, Bradwell is entering his sixth CFL season, with all six played for his hometown Argonauts.SAN FRANCISCO - A missed bunt, a couple of errors and a broken-bat single conspired against the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night. Tyler Thornburg produced another quality start, but his own missed bunt quelled one scoring rally in the Brewers 4-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants. Thornburg went six innings, allowing an unearned run on seven hits. He walked two and struck out four. Thornburg has allowed one earned run on the road through his first five major-league appearances, a span of 21 innings. Hes mostly upset about missing a squeeze bunt in the third that would have put Milwaukee ahead. "Definitely the bunt," Thornburg said. "Thats something I am going to think about all night even though I will try to flush it. I hit in college and its something I pride myself on to get runs for myself. It was buntable." Scooter Gennett, who had tripled with one out, was an easy out. It appeared as though Thornburg bunted right through the pitch. "Its something I am going to work on in the cage before my next start," Thornburg said. Juan Francisco hit a home run and drove in two for the Brewers, who have lost four of five. Jean Segura and Jonathan Lucroy each had two hits. "We had opportunities and we didnt come through," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "There were a couple of missed calls that hurt us and they got a couple of breaks." Errors by Francisco and Jeff Bianchi allowed the Giants to score three unearned runs on the night. Jeff Francoeurs broken-bat single in the bottom of the eighth inning drove in the go-ahead run. "I dont know how he missed that one," Roenicke said of Gregor Blancos grounder that went under Bianchis glove, allowing two runs to score. "Hes a good fielder and he does make those plays. When it goes bad, it surprises you." John Axford (4-5) took the loss after walking two of the three batters he faced. The only out was a drive by Buster Posey to the deepeest part of the park. Jordan Wilkins Jersey. "You never want to put the first runner on in a tight ballgame like that," Axford said. He walked Hunter Pence, who stole second, to start the inning. After Poseys at bat, Axford walked Pablo Sandoval intentionally, throwing wildly on the fourth ball to allow Pence to reach third. "Ive never done that before in my life," Axford said. "The ball, even before I was throwing it, was slipping out of my hand. I tried to compensate some way and I just air mailed it." The Giants had runners in scoring position in each of the first four innings and were 0 for 9 in those situations. They were 1 for 13 overall. In the fourth, Blanco hit a sharp grounder to Francisco at first, who threw the ball into left field trying for the out at second, allowing the first run to score. The Brewers evened things in the seventh, with Franciscos ground-rule double driving in a run. Javier Lopez got pinch hitter Rickie Weeks to ground into a double play with the bases loaded in the seventh to preserve the tie. "I was arguing with him," Weeks said. "I thought I had it. He doesnt mean to miss a call and you cant blame the umpires. There are no excuses in this game." Francisco added a solo shot in the ninth. NOTES: Brewers IF Aramis Ramirez (left patellar tendinitis) ran the bases and will do so again on Wednesday. He will then be reevaluated and could join the team in Seattle this weekend. ... Brewers RHP Yovani Gallardo (left hamstring strain) will play long toss in the next few days after reporting some tightness following his long toss session on Saturday. ... Brewers RHP Brandon Kintzler has not allowed a run in his last 12 outings, a span of 15 innings. ... RHP Wily Peralta (7-11, 4.57) will start for the Brewers on Tuesday. Hes lost his last two starts. ... OF Carlos Gomez was 7 for 10 against the Giants this year before going 0 for 4. Hes hitless in his last 18 at bats. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2018 NFL Jerseys ChinaWholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
