Red Bull team principal Christian Horner says Mercedes will still be the team to beat in 2017, despite an overhaul of the regulations over the winter aimed at mixing up the order.Mercedes has dominated Formula One for the last three years, but a new set of regulations for 2017 represents the biggest shake-up of the aerodynamic side of the sport since 2009. Back then a new competitive order emerged, with Red Bull going on to dominate the sport between 2010 and 2013, but Horner is not convinced a repeat is on the cards in 2017.I think its going to be tough to overcome Mercedes, they will go into next year as the clear favourites, he said. They have won three consecutive world championships, theyve won 50-odd grands prix in the last three years. Were hopeful with the new regulations, it should balance out the emphasis between chassis and engine. Were confident we should make a bit of progress over the winter with the engine.The regulations are a clean sheet of paper for everybody. You dont know where you sit at the moment compared to your opposition. Its an opportunity or its a challenge were looking forward to. Its only really when we get to Melbourne that well get a glimpse of where the competitive ranking is. But for sure, Mercedes will be going in as the firm favourites. Were just hopeful we can close that gap so we dont have predictable results every grand prix weekend.However, if Red Bull is close to Mercedes, Horner is confident his team will have a competitive advantage.Mercedes has been in a fortunate position in that they have never really been challenged since 2014. They have been qualifying on the front row and with a very fast car, you can pick your strategy where any variable will work out for you. When the grid does concertina, it does put on more pressure.We have been through tight championship battles, in 2010 and 2012, that did go down to the wire. I think that gives you a strong experience to deal with those situations. It will be a new experience for Mercedes, when they do come under pressure, which inevitably will happen at some stage. I just hope it is Red Bull that is able to put them under pressure.In 2009, Brawn GP gained an initial advantage by finding a loophole in the regulations that allowed for a larger diffuser at the rear of the car. Horner said new regulations always create the possibility of one team gaining such an advantage, but believes development strength is the key to long-term success in the coming years.You hope that you havent missed something like the double diffuser where there is an interpretation of the regulations that someone has spotted that generates an advantage. The regulations arent quite as dramatic as they were from 08 to 09. But they still represent a great opportunity to make the cars significantly quicker.With the tyre profile and size that they are moving to, its a different challenge. Its going to be a development race next year for sure. There will be easy gains at the beginning of any development cycle. That relentless pursuit of chasing upgrades will be a key part of certainly next year. Nike Air Max Plus TN Ultra Pink/Cherry Camouflage Womens .

It might not have mattered. While the Dodgers are preparing for the playoffs, the Padres showed their future has promise behind two rookies. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III keeps a separate points list for Americans to consider performances that might not show up in the standings, whether thats Rickie Fowler giving up potential starts to play in the Olympics or Kevin Kisner and Justin Thomas winning fall events that dont count.The bigger question is whether Darren Clarke is thinking along the same lines.That could determine whether Russell Knox is at Hazeltine next month. By winning the Travelers Championship, the 31-year-old from Scotland moved within 6.6 ranking points of the ninth and final automatic qualifying spot for Europe.Knox played college golf at Jacksonville University and has lived in Florida ever since. He didnt attempt to join the European Tour until after he won a World Golf Championship in Shanghai last year, meaning the 66 ranking points dont count. If they did, Knox would be No. 5 in the standings and virtually be assured of a spot.It puts me in a great position, Knox said Monday night.European qualifying ends in three weeks, though Knox The Barclays -- the start of the FedEx Cup playoffs and one of the strongest fields of the year -- does not count toward the European standings. His last chance to earn points would be the Wyndham Championship next week, but Knox said he doesnt think hes going to play. The Travelers was his 10th tournament in the last 13 weeks, and he still has four FedEx Cup events ahead of him.That means he might have to rely on a captains pick.I get it that the three picks are there for him to pick whoever he wants, Knox said. If he feels I can help the team, hell pick me. If he doesnt feel I can help, he has all the right in the world to pick someone else.Considering his two victories, anyone else might seem to be a lock for a pick.The problem is that Clarke already has five Ryder Cup rookies among the top nine -- Masters champion Danny Willett, Chris Wood, Rafa Cabrera-Bello, Andy Sullivan and Matthew Fitzpatrick. Clarke likely would look for experience to round out his team for the Sept. 30 start of the matches at Hazeltine.Then again, Europe had six rookies when it won the Ryder Cup at Wales.I think it would be very difficult for me not to be on the team, Knox said.---PAYNE STEWART AWARD: Jim Furyk went from a record score to a humbling award in the span of two days.Furyk, who set the PGA Tour record with a 58 in the final round of the Travelers Championship, was announced Tuesday as winner of the Payne Stewart Award.

He wrote his thoughts in an essay for Golf Channel, which is televising golf in the Rio Games.The winners at the Olympics step up, bursting with pride, because everything that they have worked for and all their dedication is rewarded in a climax that I, and most golfers, will never experience, Palmer wrote. Representing their countries, they will listen to the music, stare at their flag, wear a medal with millions of people watching around the world, and know that this moment in time is all about them and what they have achieved.---THE IMPORTANT RING: Before heading to an event symbolized by five rings, Stacy Lewis will have one of her own.A wedding ring.Lewis, one of three Americans to qualify for the Olympic womens competition that starts next week in Rio, got married to Houston womens golf coach Gerrod Caldwell on Aug. 6 in a private ceremony in Mystic, Connecticut.They are expected to arrive in Rio this weekend.Lewis was the second-highest American to qualify in the world ranking behind Lexi Thompson.
