A month in sports – the March edition

The month in sports

Wow, another month has passed, it seems a little shorter as we were so late with our last post so let see what happened in March

Quick Sporting roundup

Spring means that Formula 1, MLS, Davis Cup and March Madness are back, and the winter sports are coming to an end. It is a changing of the sporting guards as even Basektball and Hockey season in the US are coming to an end ready for the playoffs.

With the weather threatening to warm up athletes dare go outside again.

A deeper look

Australian Grand Prix – Formula One

The first race of the season was taken by Lewis Hamilton, where he averaged over 200 Mph throughout the race.

Lewis Hamilton claimed the 34th victory of his career when he led Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg home at Albert Park, the two Silver Arrows a crushing 33 seconds ahead of the third-placed Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel.

World champion Hamilton laid the foundations of his second Melbourne victory with a superb start from pole position as Rosberg struggled to keep the fast-starting Williams of Felipe Massa behind him.

A full report can be seen on the Grand Prix website

Malaysian Grand Prix

This time Sebastian Vettel was back up on the podium spraying the champagne

Sebastian Vettel needs just one more victory to equal Ayrton Senna’s tally of wins.

Vettel lies fourth on the all-time list of winners following his 40th grand prix victory yesterday, which also made him the first driver to win the Malaysian Grand Prix four times.

New(ish) to motorsports

Formula E race also took place in Miami this is the Electric version of Formula 1 and is a new entry to the motor sports world but the crowd seemed to dig it

MLS

The season is young and but the quality of Kaka is really standing out for Orlando and NYCFC still are awaiting the arrival of Frank Lampard even though, David Villa is keeping the fans happy.

March Madness

For those not in the know about this, March Madness is all about US College Basketball, the NCAA torunament, and is arguablly bigger than the NBA, at least during March.

It also holds a few stigmas as John Oliver points out

Obviously we could write up about a thousand more events but we will leave it at that for this month.

If you are lucky enough to live in Vienna then make sure that you look out on One Player Down for a surprise event in April, a small hint, you will need a partner and if you have played Eaton Fives or Volleyball it will help.
