Earnhardt defends crew chief Ives in shaky final season

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Dale Earnhardt Jr. has long reigned as NASCAR's most popular driver. But he thinks too many of his fans have started airing in 140-character bursts a most unpopular opinion — that crew chief Greg Ives should take the blame for the No. 88's struggles this season.

Not so fast.

Robert Kubica to test 2017 Renault car, fuels talk of return

BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Robert Kubica's road to a remarkable Formula One return should be clearer after testing Renault's current car next week.

The F1 website says Kubica will drive the latest Renault car in official testing at Hungaroring circuit after the Hungarian Grand Prix this weekend.

Speculation is growing that the 32-year-old Polish driver could return to F1 more than six years after sustaining serious right arm injuries when crashing in an Italian rally race.

Renault's F1 managing director Cyril Abiteboul says the test drives will help "determine in what conditions it would be possible for Robert to return to competition in the upcoming years."
