January 4 2017 5:49 am Axelsen is a part of an exciting quartet of men’s singles for coming decade Top News Viktor Axelsen was once stuck in a lift with a gaggle of Chinese He towered over them — he’s 6’4” — and they couldn’t resist chattering away loudly about how tall he was safely assuming the Dane didn’t catch a word of it at all Except they were stunned into silence when he told them in Chinese that he knew Chinese after all The rest of the elevator ride lurched on with the added weight of awkwardness Axelsen the 22-year-old Chinese speaking Pinyin-equipped shuttler stepped out and allowed himself a roaring laugh He had won himself a billion-odd strong fan base though he continued to be stumped when hacks across badminton’s powerhouse asked him with whispered solemnity if he had a Chinese girlfriend or something His early erudition did help him figure out instructions of a coach that were being screamed out at an international meet once He sadly didn’t win that match so that was that Alongwith Indian K Srikanth and Japan’s Kento Momota and Chinese Shi Yuqi Axelsen forms the exciting quartet of men’s singles for the coming decade though he has more in common with India’s reigning star PV Sindhu “Oh she’s so tall” she would get that at every corner even in Denmark that land of tall people Plus both youngsters – Axelsen’s a year older to Sindhu – have already won a medal at the Olympics And the possibilities of what all they could achieve in coming years are humongous “We are closer in age and our careers have taken similar paths” he says on his first visit to Mumbai (he’s been in Delhi and Lucknow four times in all before) While Sindhu was the dark horse who stomped out of the background to claim Rio silver Axelsen was the surprise medallist who became the first non-Asian to get on the Olympics podium last August Incidentally the last European to medal at the Games – way back in 1996 was also Denmark’s Poul-Erik Hoyer Larsen the current Badminton World Federation president And Axelsen talks about the immense pressure that he’d taken on before Rio because the proud badminton nation was in search of a men’s singles title When Srikanth beat back Jan O Jorgensen in pre quarters Axelsen who’d qualified ahead of senior Hans-Kristian Vittinghus felt the weight of expectations descend on him even more “The pressure was tough leading upto Rio because I wanted the medal so bad” he recalls Axelsen had lost the Japan Super Series final to Lin Dan a scarring loss he remembers for how deep it plunged him into anxiety and when he went down to Chen Long in the semis he recalls it being the darkest few hours of his life Denmark’s inspirational former player Peter Gade a darling of the circuit had been denied the medal for years and Axelsen was up against Super Dan again if he wanted to lay hands on the disc that his country valued so much “Against Chen Long I had over thought everything and was disappointed to not give my best On the day of the bronze playoff I’d reached an agreement with my coaches that it was OK for me to be disappointed for a few hours till lunch but after that I had to focus on the Lin Dan match” he remembers Many a bronze have been lost pining after the lost gold / silver Axelsen would play the greatest match of his nascent career and rally back from a set down to corner that medal Relaxed winning He would realise what it was like to play freely without pressure only towards the end of the year when he’d qualify last minute for the Dubai season-ender Super Series finals “I’d wanted to rest a bit after a long stressful season But I got the chance to qualify and everything happened so suddenly that it all worked out I realised how well I could play when I was relaxed” he recalls On Tuesday playing the Indonesian Tommy Sugiarto Axelsen would display anticipatory skills show low defense – once even picking a shuttle deep back and just inches off the ground for a 11-7 13-11 win though Bengaluru Blasters had lost the tie by then The boy from Odense who’d lived out the last few months with every hour accounted for in training / rest or competition would play the most unplanned meet of his life beat Lee Chong Wei and pick the last and richest title of the season He’d get picked by the Bengaluru Blasters and arrive in India to a cultural shock though he’s learnt this last month to relax a tad “Things are a bit different here When they say 12 O’Clock here it can sometimes mean 1215” he says looking incredulous “In Denmark we’re always on time” He laughs off India’s 15-minutes of infamy but hasn’t warmed upto the country enough to sample the spicy fare “I want to play here so I stay away from the food” he says clutching his tummy before breaking into chuckles He’s pally with the Chinese top players and insists that they are hugely misunderstood as robots “Chen Long’s a real friendly guy and a blast to talk with It’s because of the language barrier that they come off as a bit ‘closed’” he stresses It’s at Tokyo in four years’ time though that Axelsen will try and upgrade his bronze to gold Bengaluru Blasters coach Arvind Bhat reckons you’ll see parallel careers – of the Dane and Sindhu ticking the same boxes in improvements to their games “Both are tall and that brings with a set of problems so both will look to improve on that It’s almost the similar aspects but with 60 percent of a game that can be chiselled imagine how far they can go if they’ve already won Olympic medals” he says Viktor Axelsen knew what the Chinese spoke and PV Sindhu knew very early how to give it back For

Zetsche’s boys at Mercedes finally clinching both titles In case you didn’t see what we did there we’ll be upfront about it — here’s presenting our 2017 FormulaOne Season Glossary Through this piece we doff our hats at the season that has been through an A-Z summary of the season and the words that defined it for us A – Australia Azerbaijan and Alfa Romeo Australia got the season off with a bang marking Ferrari’s season-opening win and raising hopes of millions of fans around the world of a possible Ferrari vs Mercedes fight Also let’s not miss the Azerbaijan Grand Prix — which we would classify as the race of the season given the on-track drama that unfolded on many levels Finally welcome back Alfa Romeo B – Bernie Ecclestone After waiting for years for an ‘Ecc-xit’ Bernie Ecclestone was finally shown the door by the new owners of FormulaOne Liberty Media In typical Ecclestone style he’s lashed out at almost every move of Liberty Media’s to grow the reach and following of the sport Well let’s not be surprised if he continues doing so in 2018 too C – Chase Carey and Charlie Whiting Ecclestone’s exit meant that Chase Carey was elevated to the position of Chief Executive of FormulaOne The handlebar moustache-donning media veteran has been trusted to make sure that FormulaOne 20 is far better as a sport and more successful as a business than FormulaOne 10 While the new logo was hotly debated by fans Carey’s true test would be the new regulations for 2021 prize money restructuring and cost cap — basically items that FormulaOne has long discussed and debated but never tasted A special mention to Charlie Whiting’s now-on-air driver briefings too D – Daniel Ricciardo File image of Daniel Ricciardo AP Ricciardo is the Red Bull Racing star who managed his career-best season performance in 2017 Will he re-sign with Red Bull Racing for 2019 or will he jump ship to Mercedes to replace Valtteri Bottas Irrespective of whichever team he races for his off-track attitude and personality are a welcome change in the otherwise stiff and boring world of FormulaOne E – Engine Noise Engine noise is still a pressing issue for FormulaOne even though the new regulations are four seasons old Liberty Media’s expertise in television broadcast saw them attempt to use ceramic microphones to enhance the engine sounds on broadcast Well if football cricket and other sports can use on-field microphones to bring the sport closer to the fans why not FormulaOne F – Ferrari Ferrari were the challenger team of 2017 but their challenge faded away after multiple disasters during the Asian rounds In fact their championship challenge ended with the iconic team re-issuing threats to quit FormulaOne and even acknowledging that they could start a rival series of their own if FormulaOne didn’t continue to deliver to Ferrari’s objectives Despite their iconic status and the fan following they attract Ferrari’s favoured position in the sport needs to change to ensure a longer term stability for Formula 1 G – GPDA Grid Girls The growing call for changes to the sport has seen the drivers stand united For the first time in the history of FormulaOne all 20 drivers have signed up to be members of the Grand Prix Drivers Association (GPDA) Let’s see how the drivers are able to influence key decisions of the sport from a sporting and marketing point of view Will 2017 also be the last season when ‘grid girls’ were used in FormulaOne We saw ‘grid boys’ being used in Monaco a few seasons ago Let’s see what direction the sport takes in 2018 H – Honda Halo The 2017 FormulaOne season was a disaster for Honda the Japanese manufacturer that powered the McLaren cars This season not only saw them notch up a record number of grid penalties but also saw them publicly splitting with McLaren All eyes will be on Honda in 2018 as they will now partner Toro Rosso If Honda are still unable to get on top of the hybrid turbo regulations by next season will they walk away from the sport altogether Or will 2018 be Toro Rosso’s magical season thanks to Honda power Also the 2017 FormulaOne season will go down in history as the last season when FormulaOne cars raced without the ‘halo’ I – Indianapolis 500 When Fernando Alonso decided to skip the 2017 Monaco Grand Prix and go race in the 101st Indianapolis 500 in America it was the first time in many years that the ‘Indy 500’ gained interest and attention from FormulaOne fans Alonso’s exploits proved that the former double World Champion is still the best in class Will he be able to challenge for the win in 2018 J – Jacques Villeneuve It was actually the 1997 FormulaOne World Champion Jacques Villeneuve who took the cake when it came to outspoken comments regarding Lance Stroll and his lack of talent Valtteri Bottas’ embarrassing performances through the season and coming out in support of the out-of-support and favour Sebastian Vettel for his bad boy swipe against Lewis Hamilton in Baku Villeneuve has cracked the formula of being in the news even 20 years after his title win K – (Robert) Kubica (Daniil) Kvyat Robert Kubica’s comeback to FormulaOne (if and when it happens) will be a dream come true for the driver and his legion of fans the world over Whether he makes a full-time return to racing or not Kubica’s multiple tests with Renault and Williams show that hard work determination and talent have made the Pole eligible for a comeback to FormulaOne nearly seven years after his rallying accident With Nico Rosberg managing his return to the cockpit let’s hope that the 2016 FormulaOne Champion is able to pull some strings with his former team (Williams) and Kubica’s supporters (read: sponsors) 2017 will also be remembered for Daniil Kvyat’s extended run of failures with Toro Rosso to his unceremonial but Red Bull-style exit from the sport Will Kvyat do a Nico Hulkenberg with Force India for 2018 and 2019 L – F1 Live in London Lewis Hamilton In the Ecclestone era FormulaOne was seldom marketed by the owners The work was left for the local race organisers teams and drivers to do so However in their first-ever season as owners of FormulaOne Liberty Media launched a massive marketing program in London (called F1 Live in London) that saw Formula 1 drivers and cars do demonstrations on the streets to take the sport closer to the fans The event had free tickets (we can’t remember when anything in FormulaOne was offered for free) and was appreciated by fans and drivers alike In 2018 five such global events have been planned While more information is awaited the key question for now is whether Lewis Hamilton will attend some all or none of these events next season Or will Liberty Media classify such events as mandatory for all drivers to attend We must also pay our respects to Hamilton for yet another stellar display of his talent speed attitude and maturity The question now is whether he can equal Juan Manual Fangio’s fifth title in 2018 M – Max Verstappen Malaysia and Mika Hakkinen Mika Hakkinen during the Firstpost Pole Position interview earlier this year If is difficult to classify anything else but than Max Verstappen under the alphabet ‘M’ The young Dutchman who renewed his racing contract till 2020 had a dismal first half of the season with more retirements than race finishes However in the second half he won Red Bull Racing’s first race on merit (in our view) of this hybrid era when he won the 2017 Malaysia Grand Prix also a racing venue that bid adieu to FormulaOne after nearly 20 years of hosting races Also we had former double World Champion Mika Hakkinen live on our show — Firstpost Pole Position N – New (rules venues and media plans) Clearly all major stakeholders have realised that the sport and business needs to change and adapt to remain relevant in the future In this direction we have a new logo launched already while new rules venues sports and media plans are being put in place There’s talk of how FormulaOne should remain elitist and not go the NASCAR way but let’s wait and watch we say O – (Esteban) Ocon The Mercedes prodigy and Force India driver’s talent and rise in FormulaOne was the talk of the paddock in 2017 For 2018 he tops our list of drivers to watch out for As for 2019 it would be difficult to bet against Ocon spoiling Ricciardo’s dream of partnering Lewis Hamilton in Mercedes For now here’s to round two of the Sergio Perez vs Esteban Ocon rivalry in 2018 P – Pole Position Record 2017 greatly aided and added to Lewis Hamilton’s pursuit of records in FormulaOne He equalled and broke Michael Schumacher’s record of maximum pole positions by a driver His current record stands at 72 poles but we bet on those increasing by a sizeable chunk in 2018 Can he get to a century of pole positions by the time he retires Q – Quadruple Queue (of young guns) It was the year of the quadruple World Champions — Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton The German manufacturer and their British driver were the combination to beat at almost every round of the season Mercedes’ agility and decision-making need to be lauded in 2017 — the first time in four seasons where they faced a serious threat to their championship ambitions Ferrari were beaten not only by Mercedes’ superior engineering but also by their teamwork We would also talk highly of the queue of junior drivers who are waiting in the wings to break into FormulaOne in the near future There’s Loris Nando George Russell Antonio Giovinazzi and our very own Indian drivers Arjun Maini and Jehan Daruvala R – Radio Messages RB13 Radio messages are increasingly becoming an integral part of the FormulaOne show and 2017 offered us some really hilarious and emotional moments FormulaOne also used the radio to relay messages to the drivers from sources other than their pit-walls eg Neymar congratulating Lewis Hamilton for his Drivers’ Championship victory in Mexico Kimi Raikkonen’s ‘gimme my steering wheel’ was voted as the radio message of the season Finally the Red Bull Racing car — the RB 13; eerie as it may appear scored 13 podiums and 13 retirements in 2017 S – Shoey Spark Plugs Daniel Ricciardo made the ‘shoey’ world-famous after repeatedly using his shoe to drink champagne from each time he made it to the podium He took it a step further after podium guests joined him in his shoey celebrations We wonder if his shoey obsession made his rivals work hard to ensure that he didn’t get onto the podium Remember the ‘spark plugs’ that cost Ferrari vital championship points Here’s hoping that they always spark correctly in 2018 T – Tyres The Pirelli tyres behaved well in 2017 but the only grudge from the fans and drivers that remains unfulfilled yet is the time difference between two immediate tyre compounds But well instead of addressing this for 2018 Pirelli launched two extra compounds — hypersoft and super hard Thank you for increasing the complexity but such is the way of FormulaOne these days U – Uncharacteristic swap-back by Hamilton The 2017 Hungarian Grand Prix will be remembered for Lewis Hamilton’s ‘uncharacteristic’ swap back with Valtteri Bottas metres before the finish line for 3rd place The paddock wondered if Hamilton’s kind gesture was actually foolish and if the three points he gave back to Bottas would come back to bite him later in the championship Well we all know how that turned out V – Valtteri Bottas (Sebastian) Vettel File image of Lewis Hamilton (left) and Sebastian Vettel AFP Nico Rosberg’s last minute replacement Valtteri Bottas had a bitter-sweet season in 2017 even though he won three races While Mika Hakkinen offered an explanation for Bottas’ struggles (“He is racing a car built around Lewis” Hakkinen said on Firstpost Pole Position) the Finn did seem lacklustre at various points in the season Bottas has his work cut out for 2018 if he wants to not lose his seat to either a Ricciardo or Ocon in 2019 Also Sebastian Vettel the Baby Schumi came under tremendous pressure while attempting to win his first World Championship with Ferrari Did Ferrari and Vettel lose the championship in 2017 thanks to Vettel succumbing under pressure Ferrari seems to have hinted so Let’s see what the German-Italian combination is able to offer in 2018 W – (Pascal) Wehrlein Williams Pascal Wehrlein the other Mercedes junior driver won’t be lining up on the grid in 2018 after he found himself out of favour at Sauber (they brought in Charles Le Clerc as Wehrlein’s replacement) However it seems that Wehrlein also is out of favour at Mercedes the parent team that has helped him find a cockpit in FormulaOne in the past few seasons Williams the former World Champion team saw itself being beaten by Force India (also a Mercedes customer team) in 2017 Will they be able to resurrect their form in 2018 Also will they make the fan-popular choice of choosing Robert Kubica over Sergio Sirotkin Well as Felipe Massa indicated Williams’ driver choice for 2018 is ‘financial’ so will it be case of which driver brings more money than talent X – eXpectations Right from the first race of the season the 2017 FormulaOne Season was full of expectations While we all know how the championships turned out the expectation of a Ferrari vs Mercedes and a Lewis Hamilton vs Sebastian Vettel fight kept us interested and tuned in all season long But it wasn’t only about the championship that kept us glued The form of the Red Bull Racing drivers the battle of the Finns and the civil war at Force India were some of the other highlights that made the season that far more interesting Y – Yas Marina The venue of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix the Yas Marina Circuit is a beautiful spectacle and has a brilliant paddock media and sponsor facilities But what about the racing Can all circuit promoters spend a fraction of their ‘spectacle money’ on improving their racing tracks to ensure that at least help aid racing in close quarters It seems that Liberty Media is already looking in to such changes for 2018 so all hopes aren’t lost yet Z – Dr Dieter Zetsche The chairman of Mercedes Benz was a regular in the Mercedes garage throughout the season While he may not be as flamboyant as the other ‘team owners’ (or managers) his team has delivered quadruple championships since 2014 and here’s hoping that he works hard to keep Mercedes in FormulaOne beyond 2020 Do you wish to add to our list Here’s your chance to write to us or just leave them in the comments section below Written by Hiral Dave |
