"Phillip's spirit, which is now part of our game forever, will act as a custodian of the sport we all love," he said.

"We must listen to it. We must cherish it. We must learn from it. We must dig in and get through to tea. And we must play on. So rest in peace my little brother. I'll see you out in the middle."

Gerrard in no hurry over contract

Steven Gerrard insists he is in no rush to sign a new contract at Liverpool. The former England international’s future has been the subject of speculation in recent weeks and now he’s received the offer of a one-year deal. Speaking after Liverpool’s win over Leicester in which he bagged a crucial goal, Gerrard says he hasn't made his mind up yet over his future.

"I'll decide when I'm ready," he told BT Sport.

Sainz Jr confirmed as Torro Rosso driver

And finally Torro Rosso have announced their replacement driver for Jean-Eric Vergne - 20-year-old Spaniard Carlos Sainz Jr, son of rally legend Carlos Sainz Sr. 16-year-old Max Verstappen has already grabbed one seat with Red Bull's feeder team, and with both Vergne gone and Daniil Kvyat taking Sebastian Vettel's place, the youngster has been given a spot.

Toro Rosso team principal Franz Tost said: "I have watched Carlos progress through the junior categories, always improving as he moved higher up the ladder, culminating in a well-deserved win in this year's World Series.

"However, I also remember the day's testing he did with us at Silverstone in 2013 in the STR8. He really surprised me and his engineers that day, with his mature approach and his speed."
