Jenson Button says the possibility he could be facing his final British GP will not cross his mind this weekend as he vows to do as good a job as I possibly can in front of his home fans. For the third successive year, Button heads to Silverstone with uncertainty over his future. The 2009 world champion, the most experienced driver on the grid, is out of contract at McLaren at the end of the season with a decision on whether he stays at Woking not expected for several months.This weekend represents the 36-year-olds 17th British GP and he insists his only focus is on performing as well as he can. Theres no point thinking oh, it might be my last because then Ill have to go through those emotions again if it isnt my last, he said.In a way youd say it would be a shame if I didnt think of it as my last and it was my last, but then again I dont want to go into the weekend thinking its going to be my last and you get to the end of the year and thinking b****r it, I actually want to do another year. It doesnt make your last Silverstone grand prix so special then. Craig Slater goes behind the scenes at McLarens headquarters Incredibly, none of Buttons 50 career podium finishes have come at his home race, with the Britons best Silverstone results fourth place in 2004, 2010 and 2014.Asked about the absence of a British GP win on his CV, Button replied: It really hurts, but I cant do anything about that right now. Youve just got to take it.When is the British GP on Sky Sports?Would I rather have a world championship than win the British Grand Prix? Yes, of course. So Ive achieved my main target in Formula 1 already - theres one thing that is definitely missing and thats the British GP.And its not just the win, its even being on the podium. Ive had a couple of races where Ive been close - 2014 a metre away from Daniel Ricciardo. In 2011 I was running in second or third and my wheel fell off coming out of the pits.It just hasnt worked out. But I love the circuit. Its a great layout, the circuit works to me and has been kind to me in terms of outright pace, but the results just havent been there. Jenson Button couldnt hold on to 2nd position throughout the Austrian GP, but was happy to finish sixth Button registered his best result of the season with sixth place in Austria last weekend, but accepts his wait for a Silverstone podium is unlikely to end on Sunday.I can do as good a job as I possibly can, which is what I will do, he said. We wont be fighting for a podium. Theres another British guy that will be, but I wont have that opportunity this year, which is a shame.And I dont know if its going to be my last British Grand Prix, or Im halfway through my career… all I know is that I will do my best with what I have available and thats all I can do in front of my home crowd.Jenson Button on…His favourite British GPs…My first race was pretty awesome. I qualified sixth and overtook Michael Schumacher into turn one, Copse, and finished fifth. I did most of the race on nine [engine] cylinders, not 10, so it was a pretty epic race.DC [David Coulthard] won the race, the British fans went crazy, and we had a massive party after. We had a massive tent where we all wore wigs and acted silly. We dont do that anymore - wear wigs anyway! It was an epic weekend, but very special. The other one was 2014. It was a difficult time for me privately [Jensons father John died earlier that year] and I had a lot of support from the fans which meant a lot.The challenge of Silverstone in 2016…Its not as good as it used to be - the old Bridge and Priory [corners] were fantastic. It has changed a little bit, but turns one and two are pretty epic and didnt exist before.Its just the low-speed corners, but its definitely added something in terms of overtaking and thats what the circuit needed. Its such a difficult circuit to overtake on because its all high-speed, so there are more opportunities.Its taken the thrill away of a qualifying lap but in terms of the race and the action its probably added. The British fans…Its just so nice to see the British fans that come out whether its chucking it down with rain or 30 degrees, which is very unusual.Whatever kit theyre wearing, McLaren kit, Williams kit, Mercedes kit, or whatever, you drive past in your road car or a golf buggy going to the event and theyre all cheering. There is so much support for our sport and we definitely need that.These days there arent so many grands prix that have a full house - but one of those is definitely the British GP.

Tom Kelly Twins Jersey . - The New England Patriots needed help on defence so they added three experienced players at midseason.Mondays news of pitcher Roy Halladay signing a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays to retire with the club was a surprise - a pleasant one at that - for Blue Jay fans. Halladays resume as a Blue Jay is among the elite in the franchises 36-year history. Over 12 seasons in Toronto, he was named an All-Star six times. He had arguably the finest campaign of his career in 2003 when he posted a 22-7 record, a 3.25 ERA, nine complete games and 204 strikeouts to earn him the Cy Young Award (making him the fourth - and most recent - Blue Jay to win the honour). He ranks among the top five in Blue Jays history in win percentage, games started and ERA. But where does his 12 seasons with the Blue Jays rank among the greatest players in team history? Any comparison starts with Roberto Alomar. Hes the only player in franchise history with his jersey number retired and the only player to be inducted into Cooperstown as Blue Jay. Alomar was named an All-Star and won a Gold Glove in each of his five seasons with Toronto and was a member of both World Series winning teams in 1992 and 1993. Along with his stellar defence, he was also a terror at the plate with the highest average in club history with .307 (minimum 2,000 appearances). Then theres Carlos Delgado, statistically the best slugger in team history. Through his 12 seasons in Toronto, he was the holder of 16 individual team hitting records, three Silver Slugger awards, two All-Star appearances, the Hank Aaron Award in 20000 and was placed in the teams Level of Excellence.dddddddddddd Over his Jays career, he blasted 336 homers, 1,058 RBI and totaled 1,413 runs. How about George Bell, the first true superstar in team history? Bell was an integral piece of the 1985 team that won the American League East - their first postseason appearance. Bell was a three-time All-Star who was named AL MVP in 1987 after posting a .308 batting average, 47 homers and 134 RBI. Then theres Joe Carter, the man responsible for the greatest moment in franchise history. Aside from the walk off three-run home run in Game Six of the 1993 World Series to win it all, Carter had a stellar Blue Jays career. Named an all-star five times, he was a two time Silver Slugger. In seven seasons in Toronto, he hit 203 home runs, 736 RBI and 1,051 hits. Does Halladay rank ahead of Tony Fernandez? Also enshrined on the Blue Jays Level of Excellence, Fernandez had three separate stints with the ball club spanning 12 seasons. He was named an All-Star four times and was a gem on the field, earning four Gold Gloves. And Fernandez was a perennial fan favourite. Dave Stieb played for the team in three different decades - debuting in 1979 through his final appearance in 1998. In 15 seasons with the Jays, he won 175 games, had a 3.42 ERA and struck out 1,658 batters. He also has the most complete games in team history. And so we ask; where does Roy Halladay stand against other Blue Jays legends? As always, its Your! Call. ' ' '
