FC Barcelona defeated Real Madrid this Sunday at the King Fahd International in Riyadh to win the Spanish Super Cup and end the thirst for titles in the Barça squad, the first in the ‘Xavi era’, with goals from Gavi, Lewandowski and Pedro.

Historic victory for Carlos Sainz at the British GP

Carlos Sainz (Ferrari) has won the British Grand Prix from pole position – a statement that barely tells half the story. The test has had two starts as a result of a red flag, a period that all the drivers, except the two McLarens, have taken advantage of to change the tires.
