SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium -- A month before his 20th birthday, Frenchman Esteban Ocon will make his Formula One debut for the Manor team at this weekends Belgian Grand Prix. Vapormax Pas Cher Du Tout .The 18-year-old Dutch driver Max Verstappen -- his former rival -- will be competing in his 32nd GP, already has four podiums to his name and is the youngest driver to win an F1 race.That makes him an easy person for Ocon to look up to as he looks to make his own mark in F1.Age is just a number at the end. You have to show you are capable of driving in F1 and show it to the right people, Ocon said Thursday. I think thats the most important thing. You have to deliver like Max did and thats the target for me as well.When Ocon won the European Formula 3 championship in 2014, Verstappen finished behind him in third place.Their paths then split.Verstappen was fast-tracked to F1 last year with Toro Rosso before replacing Russian Daniil Kvyat at Red Bull after four races this season.Verstappen paid back that faith with a brilliant drive to win the Spanish GP in May in his first race for Red Bull, and then finished second in Austria and Britain before taking third place at the German GP in the last race before the summer break.His advice for Ocon is pretty simple.Just jump in the car and go out and drive as fast as you can, Verstappen said.Easier said than done, because few drivers have Verstappens level of confidence, even given his young age.Ocon began this year racing for Mercedes in Germanys DTM touring car championship and was a reserve driver for the Renault F1 team.Things quickly changed two weeks ago, when Manor terminated Rio Haryantos contract -- having run out of patience with his sponsors -- and replaced the Indonesian driver with Ocon for the remainder of the season.Ocon fully intends to take his chance.I had the best preparation I could have got, he said. Its great to start in Spa. Its a track that I know, so it will help me get up to speed.Ocon is considered a strong candidate for a race seat at Renault next year, particularly with speculation surrounding the future of Danish driver Kevin Magnussen.Before that, however, he hopes to pick up some tips from his Manor teammate Pascal Wehrlein, a 21-year-old German who will be racing in only his 13th GP.Hes a great driver and he has been quick throughout the whole season, Ocon said.

Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. Vapormax Flyknit Blanche Pas Cher .com) - The women will also have a new champion at the Australian Open. http://www.vapormaxpaschersoldes.fr/vente-air-vapormax-flyknit.html . Artturi Lehkonen, Joni Nikko and Ville Leskinen had the other goals for Finland (1-0) while Juuse Saros stopped 28 shots. Tim Robin Johnsgard had the lone goal for Norway (0-2). OAKLAND, Calif. -- Anxious and eager to get started with his new team, Kevin Durant woke up extra early in the 7 oclock hour and then hit freeway traffic on the way to his first formal work day with the Warriors.I wasnt used to that in Oklahoma City, he said with a chuckle following his initial practice with Golden State.Welcome to the Bay Area, KD.Hes loving it so far. So is two-time reigning MVP Stephen Curry, asked several different ways after Day 1 how defenses might possibly defend a lineup led by him, Durant, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and new center Zaza Pachulia. Not to mention all the playmakers coming off the bench for the NBA runner-ups last season to LeBron James and Cleveland.Everybody expects more from the Warriors now -- even after a record-setting season that ended with 73 wins but without another championship banner.As Curry and Co. are so used to by now, every team will bring its best to face star-studded Golden State led by its baby-faced point guard who shattered his own record with 402 3-pointers last season and is looking for even more from himself.Weve just got to be ready for pretty much anything, Curry said. Its going to be a feeling-out process throughout the whole season. Last year, teams started playing us a little differently all the way up until like March. We have to adjust. ... I have the same mentality. I dont really think about any other expectations. I want to get better. I want to be better than I was last year, and thats going to be the same regardless if KD was here or not.The Warriors held a team dinner Monday night that was as much get-to-know-you as it was outlining the season ahead. Durant said they havent even discussed whos going to get more shots or minutes, its alll about getting to know each other. Vapormax 2019 Blanche. When things immediately came together on the court, coach Steve Kerr was pleasantly surprised given both he and general manager Bob Myers expected some basketballs to fly every which way as all the superstars found their timing together.Durant fit in great on the first day, Kerr said.It went well, better than I thought, said Kerr, the reigning NBA Coach of the Year. We had a team dinner last night and I looked around and we had, I want to say, 12 or 13 new faces including the camp invites. Its a reminder that this is a much different team, much different season. Practice was really smooth, especially considering all the new faces.Curry knows this team will be different from the group that came off a championship a year ago, and he has been reminding himself that every day you have to learn a little something to reach the big prize at the end.Losing Game 7 still stings for the Warriors, who led the series 3-1 before squandering the advantage -- just as Durant and his former Thunder team did against the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.Thats life, thats all part of it, Kerr said.Oh, and speaking of Currys focus, he is completely unconcerned as he enters into a contract year. He insists his future, which Curry plans to be right where he is now, can wait until next summer.My answers not going to be any different all year, so keep asking me, I wont have a different one, he said. Im not going to let it distract me at all. I want to be back here. I like playing here, and thats it. The rest of it is about what were going to do this year. ' ' '
