Paul Di Resta and Gary Paffett on final DTM race of season
Paul di Resta - Brands Hatch
Paul di Resta - Brands Hatch
What are your expectations for the last race weekend at Hockenheim?

Paul Di Resta: Our expectations are the same as for every race. Hopefully, we'll be going in with a very positive car. It's a big weekend obviously, given it's the championship battle and we're in the lead going into the finale. It would be nice to finish in that position. I think consistency is going to be the key factor. We have to make sure that we score points on both days. And of course, qualifying, especially the points for the Top 3, will play a crucial role. I think everybody needs to lift their game. We've had a very solid year so far, and we mustn't let complacency creep in, because we have to ensure that we achieve our number one goal of beating Rast. From there on, we can have a good battle to see who is crowned champion. Hopefully, a lot of fans will come to the track to see the season finale and the last two races for Mercedes live.

Mercedes-Benz has started construction of a factory that will produce electric-car batteries near its Tuscaloosa, Alabama, assembly plant. The German automaker is spending $1 billion in order to build electric SUVs in Alabama.

The battery plant will be located seven miles from the existing Tuscaloosa assembly plant, a Mercedes statement said. The automaker said the new plant will create 600 jobs in the region. The Alabama plant will be one of six global factories supplying batteries for future Mercedes electric cars, along with three in Germany, one in China, and one in Thailand. Mercedes plans to offer at least one electrified powertrain (hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or all-electric) in each model it makes by 2022.

NASCAR to set betting rules

NASCAR president Steve Phelps said the series is set to implement guidelines in the rulebook on sports betting in 2019 so teams and drivers don't 'fix' races.

Dover International Speedway opened its on-site betting kiosk this weekend and became the only track that allowed sports gambling on its property. NASCAR does not prohibit its drivers or team members from betting on the race.

"I think for '19, we'll have some rules that we'll put in place," Phelps told the AP Sunday at Dover. "For right now, there'll be betting here. They have a kiosk here, you can bet inside. We'll study and see how that goes, but I think we'll have some rules in place for sponsorship, for what betting looks like, and continue to see what happens in the landscape overall."

Max Verstappen was punished further by the FIA and Japanese Grand Prix stewards for his opening-lap crash with Kimi Raikkonen, picking up a penalty point on his super license that puts him close to a race ban. Verstappen now has eight points on his license, if he picks up four at the United States Grand Prix he will be barred from the Mexico GP.

Verstappen served a five-second penalty during the race for entering the track unsafely after a first-lap lock-up sent him off the track and he made contact with Raikkonen while trying not to cut the corner at the next turn.
