Qatar 2022 begins!

The four-year wait to enjoy a World Cup again is over. On Sunday, November 20, the World Cup was inaugurated at the Al Bayt stadium with a capacity for about 60 thousand people. 

With an incredible fireworks show, musical performances, brilliant choreographies and the surprising appearance of the renowned actor Morgan Freeman, the FIFA World Cup kicked off. 

Qatar 2022, a World Cup with a lot of criticism and controversy, will seek to show the world that it is capable of hosting an event of such magnitude as a World Cup. 

Thousands of Mexicans made the trip to Qatar to support the Mexican national team that will seek to make history in 2022. 

F1 season comes to an end

It was at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, where a great Formula 1 season came to an end. 

Max Verstappen won the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, followed by Charles Leclerc and Sergio «Checo» Pérez, who completed the podium. 

In the drivers’ world championship Max Verstappen obtained 454 points, winning the world championship, Charles Leclerc below «Max» with 308 points and Sergio Perez with 305 points as third place in the world championship, a historic achievement for a Mexican driver. 

In the constructors’ world championship Red Bull Racing swept with 759 points being the world champions over Ferrari who scored 554 points. 

Djokovic champion of the ATP Finals

Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic was proclaimed champion of the ATP Finals held in Turin, Italy. 

Djokovic won for the sixth time in his career this tournament, where at the end of the season the eight best tennis players in the world qualify according to the ATP ranking.

He defeated the Norwegian Casper Ruud 7-5, 6-3, where the 35-year-old Djokovic equaled Roger Federer’s record. 

This is the third final lost by Ruud this year, the first one against «Rafa» Nadal at Roland Garros, followed by the US Open final against Alcaraz and now against «Nole» in Turin.

Sebastian Vettel says goodbye to F1

The Teutonic driver Sebatian Vettel says goodbye to Formula 1. It was at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix that Vettel put an end to his great racing career. 

After 15 years in the top category of motor racing and four world championships, a legend of the sport, who gave many joys to those of us who enjoy Formula 1, retires. 

He made his debut in 2007 with the BMW Sauber team, where he impressed everyone with his driving skills. It was a year later, in 2008, when he joined Toro Rosso. With his great performances, he quickly earned a place at Red Bull where in 2010 he became the youngest champion in the entire F1 history and not only that, but he achieved it for four years in a row. 

In 2014, Vettel said goodbye to Red Bull, the team where he achieved everything, to join Ferrari, where he would stay until 2018. In 2020 he would join Aston Martin, where he would spend his final stage as a driver. 

A legend of world sport bids farewell. 

Thank you, Seb!
