Jalopnik Reviews All of our test drives in one convenient place. On paper, the 2018 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport AWD is a 400 horsepower premium sedan positioned to take on the higher trim competition from BMW, Mercedes and Audi. But in practice, it’s a 400 hp car with a jarringly dated interior and upsettingly numb steering, leaving it just short of being legitimately fun. (Full disclosure: Infiniti wanted me to drive the 2018 Q50 Red Sport so bad it filled up the tank and dropped it off at the office right as I was returning a Range Rover Velar. Life is good.) What Is It? The 2018 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport is the most powerful trim of Infiniti’s compact upmarket sedan. In theory, Infiniti is targeting Nissan buyers trying to work their way into a more premium brand, while also offering something that gets mentioned alongside the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C-Class and Audi S4. Except I’ve driven a Nissan Maxima with nicer interior features than the Q50, and all of the … [Read more...] about The 400 HP 2018 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport AWD Is So Close to Being Good It Hurts
So who are these guys? Eleven Sports was founded as an over-the-top (OTT) sports channel in 2015 and has been broadcasting in seven countries over recent years. Despite having an Italian owner – Leeds United chairman Andrea Radrizzani – it is based in the UK, but only really came to the British sport fans’ attention when it snapped up the rights to show Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A football earlier this year.It was a move that shook up the sector, suddenly ending twenty years of La Liga coverage for market monster Sky Sports and leaving BT Sport without Italian football for the new season. Throw in the purchase of exclusive rights to the PGA Championship golf, and the intention to stream football for free on Facebook, and you can see why Eleven Sports has been turning heads.Here's how to watch every single English Premier League game this seasonWhat does Eleven Sports show?Although Eleven Sports is also available in the likes of the US, Italy, Portugal, Poland … [Read more...] about What is Eleven Sports and how do I watch it?
A blossoming staple in the schedules on sports and trendier TV channels, e-sports makes for increasingly popular viewing. Millions tune in to watch gamers slaying each other in League of Legends, fight epic duels in Star Wars Battlefront and fall to fate on the turn of a card in Hearthstone. But with an official tie-in to the Formula 1 world championship, the racing series is raising the stakes.

If you read about the French Open’s plan to change its dress code, all because Serena Williams wore a catsuit at the tournament this year, and thought, Hmm I wonder what former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad thinks about this, well, now you know. Well, sort of—whatever tortured point he’s trying to make about women having the freedom to wear what they want falls pretty flat considering that under his presidency, police were encouraged to harass and arrest women wearing “bad hijabs.” But back to Sports! There’s no mistaking what he thinks about the LeBron versus Michael Jordan debate: After joining Twitter in March, Ahmadinejad mostly tweets about normal things like the “dictatorship” of the U.S. dollar, the “arrogant Zionists,” and the “annihilation of US global domination.” This recent pivot to sports is really something I did not see coming. Mahmoud can’t stand for it anymore because he loves and … [Read more...] about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Is On Twitter, And He’s Got Sports Takes
