MONZA, Italy -- Toto Wolff believes Formula Ones potential new Amercan investors could be good news for the sport as it nears an $8. Onitsuka Tiger Mid Runner .5 billion takeover.Over the Italian Grand Prix weekend news broke that Liberty Media is going ahead with its planned purchase of F1, with the takeover expected to begin this week. Although no timeline for the takeover has been revealed just yet, a change in ownership would inevitably come with considerable changes to how the sport is run.Wolff thinks Liberty could help F1 adopt a more modern outlook if the takeover goes ahead, pointing to the success of American sports media to highlight his point.If there is an investor that wants to buy shares I think that is good news for F1, Wolff said. Youve seen it today, it was unbelievable, the fans and full grandstands. Maybe it is good news, American investment, American media company buys F1.If you buy a company for that price and you are in charge of a media empire like Liberty there are certain things you have done in your life. I dont think anybody would buy that stake and spend that money and come in and say we are not changing everything and we are doing it the American way.There are things we can learn from the American way, particularly in the digital areas, and there are things working here that are not working there. So I think they are going to have a close look and analyse what they think needs to be changed, improved or what needs to remain. There is a reason why these guys can afford to buy this.One area of the deal which remains unclear is whether Bernie Ecclestone will stay on as F1 boss, a controlling role he has held since the 1970s.I dont know what happens in terms of management, Wolff went on to say. Bernie has done an awesome job over 50 years and made it what it is and I think everybody credits him for that...Asked if he wanted Ecclestone to stay on as boss, Wolff said: I dont want to jump into that group that says.... He has built an empire and we are benefitting from that empire. That thing generates dozens and dozens of live views and full race tracks like we had today and one and a half billion in profits like weve had every year.Hes done an awesome job and whether the future shows there are areas which can be improved or not, I dont know, but I dont want to speculate because that is just wrong.Red Bull boss Christian Horner, himself tipped to run the sport in future, hopes the deal does not spell the end of Ecclestones tenure at the helm.I sincerely hope this is not Bernies last race, Horner said in Monza on Sunday. I dont believe it will be. And obviously we will all wait to see what the news is over the next couple of weeks regarding the ownership or shareholding of F1, if there is any change or redistribution. So there is an awful lot of speculation at this point in time. Adidas X_PLR Shoes .

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Theres still plenty at stake at the Wyndham Championship this year -- even if some of the big names from last year arent playing.Tiger Woods didnt return, sidelined by a back injury. And Davis Love III -- a local favorite and three-time winner who had hip surgery last month -- is only watching.When play begins Thursday at Sedgefield Country Club, the field once again will be littered with players trying to force their way off the PGA Tours bubble in the final week of golfs regular season and earn spots in the first round of the playoffs.Others are trying to make one last impression on Love, whos scouting as the captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup team.Woods made his only appearance in Greensboro a year ago in a last-ditch effort to make the postseason. He finished four strokes behind Love and fell short of the top 125 on the points list.But his presence had Sedgefield abuzz all week and helped the tournament set its modern-day attendance record of about 143,000 for the four rounds, including about 35,000 on the final day. It was the last tournament Woods played on the tour because of back surgery.This is the next-to-last chance to earn Ryder Cup points, with the top eight players determined after the first playoff event at The Barclays next week at Bethpage Black.Love will make his first three captains picks Sept. 11 after the BMW Championship in Carmel, Indiana. The final pick comes two weeks later after the Tour Championship in Atlanta.Among Loves possibilities here this week: Jim Furyk plays his first round since shooting the first 58 in PGA Tour history during the final round of the Travelers Chaampionship. Nike Roshe Two Print. Rickie Fowler is one of seven Olympians here, and 2007 Wyndham winner Brandt Snedeker also is back.The Wyndham has long relished its spot as the last chance for the tours bubble players to force their way into the FedEx Cup playoffs, which are open to the top 125 players on the points list, and secure their spots on the tour for next season.The playoffs, obviously thats where you can do the most damage, said Harold Varner III, who grew up in Gastonia and played college golf at East Carolina. Right now, I feel good. I just want to seal my card. Thats the biggest thing because sometimes you dont get into all the events your rookie year.I did a pretty good job of that, got into two majors. A lot of positives, but theres still some big tournaments coming up, like this one this week.Varner sure seems safe at No. 79 on the points list in his first year on the tour. Others arent nearly so secure.Every player ranked from No. 121 to No. 135 has entered. Some, like No. 121 David Toms and No. 124 Matt Jones, want to play well enough to hold on to their spots. Others, like No. 126 Scott Stallings and No. 129 Steve Marino, need to earn enough points to move up a few spots.Perhaps theyll draw inspiration from Love, who last year made the biggest jump in the tournaments history. His victory propelled him from No. 186 to No. 76.But in 2014, only one player outside the top 125 -- Sang-Moon Bae -- earned enough points here to move into the playoffs. The year before, nobody did it. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
