Doha, Qatar: The longest distance between World Cup stadiums in Qatar will be just 55 kilometres (35 miles), equivalent to travelling from Manchester United’s Old Trafford to Liverpool’s Anfield, figures released Monday show.

World Cup organisers in the Gulf have calculated the distances between the proposed eight venues for the 2022 tournament using a satellite mapping tool.

As well as the distance between the Al-Bayt and Al-Khor stadiums, organisers said the shortest distance will be just 4.5 km (3 miles) from the Khalifa International to Qatar Foundation stadium.

That is approximately the same as that between Arsenal’s Emirates ground and London rivals Tottenham Hotspur’s White Hart Lane.

By contrast, the longest distance in Brazil between venues was more than 3,140 km, and the shortest almost 340 km, according to the figures.

They were released by the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, the body responsible for overseeing the tournament in Qatar, to mark the fact it is exactly six years until the first game of 2022 and underline the compact nature of their event.

Organisers say the tournament will be the “ultimate live experience” for fans, giving supporters the chance to attend more than one game a day in person.

As well as being held in a relatively small country with short distances between venues, there could be as many as four games played each day at the beginning of the tournament.

The is because the event will take place over 28 days, four fewer than normal, after Fifa moved the tournament to November/December 2022 rather than the usual June/July, because of concerns about Qatar’s fierce summer heat.

“We have always maintained that Qatar’s size will make it one of the most unique World Cups ever that will benefit both fans and players,” said the supreme committee’s assistant secretary general, Nasser Al-Khater.

He added that teams would have far less travelling to do in Qatar and be based in one location for the whole tournament.

“Compare this to the USA’s group stage travel during Brazil 2014, which saw them notch up nearly 9,000 air miles just for their first three games.”

The 2022 World Cup will kick off on 21 November at the still-to-be-built Lusail Stadium, which will also host the final.

Qatar is at the halfway point to hosting the World Cup as it was controversially awarded the tournament by Fifa on 2 December, 2010.

Since then the emirate has faced constant criticism over corruption and human rights concerns, with calls for the World Cup to be played elsewhere.

However, earlier this month, Hassan al-Thawadi, head of the Supreme Committee said the tournament was a “done deal”.

Sao Paulo: Max Verstappen blamed himself for missing out on pole position in Friday’s qualifying at the Sao Paulo Grand Prix, claiming that the unpredictable wet weather conditions turned the session into a lottery.

The newly-acclaimed double world champion said he locked up his Red Bull car on his first and best run and was unable to improve as a red flag and heavy rain effectively curtailed the session.

Kevin Magnussen took advantage of the changing circumstances to claim his and the underdog Haas team’s maiden pole position.

“We knew it was going to be one lap of rain and I think I was like fourth or fifth car and I locked up into turn eight so that cost me pole.

“But compared to the proper opposition for tomorrow, it looks good. Anything can happen so being up front is the most important thing.”

Verstappen will be seeking a record-increasing 15th win in a single season in Sunday’s Grand Prix race after winning eight of the last nine as he romped to a runaway success in the drivers’ title race.

“I always try to have fun,” he added. “But the approach should always be the same. Let’s see how competitive we are tomorrow in the (sprint) race, but also we have no clue how the weather’s going to be.

“That’s what makes Interlagos always so special for everyone. It’s difficult. You have to find the limit of how much you can push, but also you don’t want big mistakes.

“We stayed calm for Q1 and Q2 and then Q3 was more of a lottery, but nevertheless we’re still on the front row.”

Mercedes’ George Russell, whose crash caused the red flag that interrupted the Q3 session before heavy rain swept the circuit, said: “I am very happy to be P3 and massive congratulations to Kevin – what an awesome job he did and Haas did.

“They deserve it for all the effort they have put in. P3 is not necessarily where we wanted to be, but it’s a very good place to be starting for the sprint.

“I think that’s our best shot at trying to finish above Max and Red Bull, to have the mixed conditions. I hope it doesn’t get too bad, so the fans can still enjoy the racing, but nevertheless we’re ready to have a good couple of races.”

A disgruntled Charles Leclerc of Ferrari had hoped to challenge for pole, but he was undone in P3 by his team’s decision to send him out on intermediate tyres when all nine of his rivals, including team-mate Carlos Sainz, were on slicks.

His reaction oozed controlled fury, clearly audible during an outburst on team radio as he littered his message with sarcasm and profanities.

After qualifying 10th, he said: “We were expecting some rain. It never came… I will speak to the team and try to see what we can do better in these conditions. I am extremely disappointed. We had the pace…”

Seven-time champion Lewis Hamilton qualified eighth in the second Mercedes and said he was hampered by being the last car out of the pitlane.

“It was difficult to see the conditions, the rain drops… It was so dark. I was the last car out so I think I got the earliest part of the rain. I probably lost temperature in the pit lane as well.

“It’s a bit unfortunate, but George did a great job and congratulations to Kevin.”

Sao Paulo: A beaming Kevin Magnussen was almost lost for words on Friday after claiming a sensational maiden pole position for himself and the underdog Haas team in a dramatic rain-hit qualifying session at the Sao Paulo Grand Prix.

“I don’t know what to say,” said the popular and modest 30-year-old Dane as wild celebrations erupted around him at Interlagos. “The team put me out on track at exactly the right moment. We were first out into the pit lane, I did a pretty decent lap and we’re on pole. It’s incredible!”

His stunning and unexpected success was also the first by a driver for an American team since Tom Pryce took pole for Shadow at the 1975 British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

Magnussen, who re-joined the American-owned outfit this season after being dumped for 2021, took full advantage of the changing dry-wet conditions to go out first and clock a best lap in one minute and 11.674.

His early run in Q3 gave him the initiative as rain swept across the circuit, curtailing his rivals’ efforts to respond, causing George Russell to lose control of his Mercedes and slide off into a gravel trap and bring a red flag stoppage.

Newly-acclaimed two-time world champion Max Verstappen had no chance to improve on his time of 1:11.877, two-tenths adrift of Magnussen, and had to settle for second ahead of Russell, who had clocked 1:12.059 before sliding off.

“Thank you to Gene Haas and Guenther Steiner and the whole team for this opportunity,” said Magnussen, the first Dane to take a Formula One pole position, in his 100th race for Haas and the 140th of his career. It was Haas’s 143rd Grand Prix.

“I got back this year after a year out and it’s just been an amazing journey for me. Fantastic. That decision to send me out first, to have a clear track ahead of me, was the key moment and it has been just amazing.”

His success made him the fourth different driver to claim a maiden pole position this season, following Carlos Sainz of Ferrari, Sergio Perez of Red Bull and George Russell of Mercedes, all of whom were among the quickest to congratulate him.

Magnussen began his Formula One career in 2014, finishing second on debut for McLaren at the Australian Grand Prix when, in his own words, he said “I came in as this arrogant little kid, thinking I was the king of the world – and then I found out tough it really is in Formula One.”

His father Jan was also an F1 driver, with McLaren and Stewart, taking part in 25 Grands Prix overall with a best finish of sixth at the 1998 Canadian Grand Prix, a career not unlike that of another leading driver’s father Jos Verstappen, whose son Max will line up alongside him for Saturday’s sprint race.

Vertappen senior’s career in F1 started in 1994 and competed in 107 races with Benetton, Simtek, Arrows, Tyrrell, Stewart and Minardi – a spell that saw him replace Magnussen at Stewart following his Canadian success for the remainder of 1998.

It was little surprise to hear the sense of disbelief in Magnussen’s voice when, in the final minutes of Q3, he was told of his likely feat by his team.

  1. “Kevin, you’re P1,” he was told.
  2. “No, I’m not,” he replied. ”You’re kidding.”
  3. “No, you’re P1”
  4. “No. You’re kidding me. You’re xxxxxxx me!”
  5. “No, I’m not… You’re P1.”

“I’ve never, never felt like this in my life… Don’t celebrate. Please, don’t celebrate.”

Once out of his car, back in the Haas team garage, he was struggling with reality, but quick-witted enough to know what to say when asked if he had a plan for the start of Saturday’s sprint race.

“Maximum attack… Let’s go for something funny!”

Two-time world champion Max Verstappen was third in his Red Bull ahead of Carlos Sainz in the second Ferrari, seven-time champion Lewis Hamilton and his Mercedes team-mate George Russell.

The top six were separated by only two-tenths of a second.

Four-time champion Sebastian Vettel, in his penultimate Grand Prix before retiring, was seventh for Aston Martin ahead of fellow-German and protégé Mick Schumacher, who is fighting to keep his seat with Haas next year.

Valtteri Bottas was ninth for Alfa Romeo and Pierre Gasly 10th for Alpha Tauri in a frantic one hour’s action as the teams worked intensively to find a set-up for their cars ahead of qualifying later Friday.

On a warm day with an air temperature of 24 degrees Celsius, and the track at 46 degrees, the session began with a flurry of cars on track seeking to take advantage of the only session before qualifying.

Esteban Ocon was the initial pace-setter ahead of the newly-moustachioed Valtteri Bottas. Verstappen was soon in action and ran off at Turn Four, the scene of his controversial defensive move against Hamilton last year, taking to the run-off area to recover.

Almost immediately, Perez went top before the world champion, on his next lap, took command, Bottas splitting the two Red Bulls with some aplomb. The Finn, a former pole sitter at Interlagos in 2017 and 2021, clearly relished the conditions and went top after 10 minutes.

Verstappen, stirred, if not shaken, responded to regain the initiative as Ferrari scrambled to keep pace, Sainz grumbling at Norris for hogging the middle of the track on a slow lap, a move the Spaniard described as ‘super dangerous’.

Sainz’s hopes for the race had already been hit by news that he faced a grid penalty after Ferrari fitted a sixth engine to his car, automatically taking a five-place demotion.

The Mercedes of Hamilton and Russell, on mediums, were fourth and seventh in the early stages, while most of their rivals ran hards – an encouraging start in their scrap with Ferrari for third place in the constructors’ championship.

Perez, sporting a sleek helmet to promote the Black Panther movie, regained top spot, on softs, after half an hour’s action ahead of the two Haas cars before Verstappen, complaining of understeer, went second, just 0.008 seconds adrift of the Mexican.

The unpredictable lapping continued with Bottas and Alonso both slotting into the top three before Leclerc improved to third with 14 minutes remaining. Russell and Sainz also found more pace in the closing minutes as Hamilton complained that his car ‘feels like the rear is just floating around’.

The seven-time champion and newly-adopted citizen of Brazil had been given a rapturous reception at the start as he began his bid for a fourth Interlagos victory, but found life difficult in this hour of intensity until a late lift to third and a hectic finale.
