ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates -- Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel posted the fastest time in the second practice session of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Friday. In cooler evening temperatures, the German clocked a best lap of 1 minute, 41.335 seconds to finish 0.155 ahead of Red Bull teammate Mark Webber and 0.355 clear of Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton. Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen was fourth quickest after narrowly avoiding a crash. The third practice session is Saturday afternoon before qualifying in the evening. Vettel, who clinched the title at the Indian GP last weekend, has taken pole position in four of the past five races. Lotus driver Romain Grosjean was fastest in the first practice but the Frenchman struggled with a brake problem in the second and finished 12th. Grosjean has finished third in each of his past three races and earlier Friday clocked a best lap of 1:44.241 seconds in hot temperatures to finish .192 seconds ahead of Hamilton -- who won the race two years ago and has taken pole position twice -- and 0.258 clear of Vettel. But in the second run, Grosjean yelled over the race radio that there was a problem with his front brakes. Although he came back out later in the session, it was a short stint and he had to go back to the pits. Abu Dhabi is the only race of the year that starts in the late afternoon and ends in the evening. Because qualifying and the race itself are held at twilight, when the track is considerably cooler at sunset, little useful data could be gained from the first practice. About midway through the first run, Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg locked his front left tire as he broke heavily coming into a chicane and almost slid off the track before regaining control. He had further trouble in the second run, locking his brakes into turn 17. The Abu Dhabi track has never been much to Ferraris liking. It was a poor first run for both drivers, with former champion Fernando Alonso in 12th and Felipe Massa in 17th. They fared a bit better in the second session, with Alonso in eighth and Massa 10th. Nearing the end, Raikkonen almost crashed into Valtteri Bottas as the Williams driver broke late coming into a turn and his car veered left. Then, with a few minutes remaining, Raikkonen slid across the track after locking his brakes on turn 17. Buy Air Max Shoes Online .7 million, one-year contract, a raise of $2.2 million.

Kamloops, B.C., the host city of this years Tim Hortons Brier, is where he won his first Canadian mens curling crown in 1996.RALEIGH, N.C. -- Jim Rutherford stepped down as general manager of the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday, and the team promoted Hall of Fame player Ron Francis to replace him. In a series of moves, the Hurricanes also hired Mike Vellucci as assistant GM and director of hockey operations and promoted Brian Tatum to assistant general manager. Rutherford, who also owns part of the team, will remain in an advisory role as team president. He assembled the teams that won one Stanley Cup, played for another and reached the Eastern Conference final in 2009. The Hurricanes havent made the playoffs since then, the longest active drought in the East. "I look at this as a fresh start," Francis said. "I dont want to just kind of build a team that gets into the playoffs for one year. I would like to build it so that its a very solid franchise and we can do it on a yearly basis." Francis had long been considered the teams GM-in-waiting. The former team captain holds team records with 382 goals, 793 assists and 1,186 games played. He has been the teams vice-president of hockey operations since June 2012. He took over as the teams director of player development in 2006 and was an assistant coach under Paul Maurice from 2008-11 before returning to the front office that June as director of hockey operations. Now that hes running a team for the first time, it remains unclear just how much financial flexibility Francis will have. The four highest-paid players -- forwards Alexander Semin and Eric and Jordan Staal, and goalie Cam Ward --- are coming off subpar seasons.dddddddddddd They made a combined $28 million last year and will do so again in 2014-15. "This year we were at the (NHL salary) cap, I believe. Didnt make a heck of a lot of difference, did it?" owner Peter Karmanos Jr. said. "Well set the budget wherever we think we can have the most competitive hockey team." One of Francis first jobs will be deciding whether Kirk Muller will receive a fourth year as coach. Muller is 80-80-27 in three seasons and the Hurricanes finished 13th in the 16-team East this year with a 36-35-11 record. "In fairness, I think its a decision that kind of needs due process," Francis said. Rutherford, 65, is a former NHL goalie who spent two decades as the clubs GM, and helped shepherd its move from Hartford to North Carolina. He said he and Karmanos casually discussed stepping aside and those talks grew increasingly more serious beginning in January and February and continued through the early off-season. "Twenty years is a long time for me," Rutherford said. "Ive thought about this for a few years, and certainly the time is right now." Vellucci, 47, will oversee the teams scouting and player development after spending the past 14 seasons as head coach and general manager of the Plymouth Whalers -- the Ontario Hockey League team owned by Karmanos. Tatum, 40, is entering his 17th year with the team and has been its vice-president of team operations since 2012 after spending five years as its senior director of team operations. ' ' '
