It allows for sufficient samples of fuel to be taken after the race to confirm that it complies with regulations. From an autosport.com article: The FIA needs that much fuel because initially it provides three samples, one that is tested by the FIA fuel specialist at the track, one that goes to an independent lab, and one that is retained by the team. Some ...

These are both covered by MLB Rule 9.08: The Official Scorer shall: (a) Score a sacrifice bunt when, before two are out, the batter advances one or more runners with a bunt and is put out at first base [...] (d) Score a sacrifice fly when, before two are out, the batter hits a ball in flight handled by an outfielder or an infielder running in the outfield ...

This is called a short run. Quoting from Law 18: 18.3 Short runs 18.3.1 A run is short if a batsman fails to make good his/her ground in turning for a further run. 18.3.2 Although a short run shortens the succeeding one, the latter if completed shall not be regarded as short. A striker setting off for the first run from in front of the popping crease may ...

Effectively, no - the game is over, penalties will not affect the result of the game. The only slight caveat is that the NHL does enforce automatic suspensions for players with multiple game misconduct penalties; Rule 23.3: In regular League games, any player who incurs a total of three (3) game misconduct penalties in the “General Category” and exclusive ...

CSKA-Sofia can reach a maximum of 7 points, they cannot qualify in the hypothetical situation given. Changing it so they did would require Young Boys or CFR Cluj to miss points, so AS Roma is still assured of qualifying. If the remaining teams all reach exactly ten points, tiebreakers effectively remove all matches involving CSKA-Sofia from the table, then ...

In NFL statistics, a blocked extra point is counted as an extra point attempt, so long as the end result is no points scored for the kicking team. From the NFL Guideline for Statisticians: Whenever a player placekicks or dropkicks a ball in an attempt to score an extra point, he shall be credited with an extra-point attempt and, if the kick results in a ...

A runner is allowed to advance at their own peril whenever the ball is in play. The ball is not automatically dead after completion of a play. But if "time" has been called, then no advance is possible. Usually, the pitcher will control the ball and be standing on the mound while the new batter enters, so advancing is unlikely. If the defense ...

The shuttle stuck on top of the net is a fault during service and a let otherwise, according to the Laws of Badminton: §13.2.1 It shall be a fault if in service the shuttle is caught on the net and remains suspended on its top. §14.2.3.1 It shall be a let if after the service is returned, the shuttle is caught on the net and remains suspended on its top.

Until either the runner crosses first base, or a force out or tag has been applied, the umpire will not make a safe or out call. Given this scenario, the umpire will not make a call either when the runner oversteps the base, or when the ball is dropped by the first baseman. As you state, the next action is the tagging of the base by the first baseman with ...

There are several reasons. The ball becomes damp by absorbing water. This makes it both softer and heavier, so it loses a lot of bounce as well as reliability and integrity. The ground, especially the pitch, becomes wet. The pitch in particular needs to be kept dry as much as possible to keep its own integrity, allowing the ball to bounce effectively and ...

There are 2 general cases when athletes pass on jumps: The height is too low They want to go up in the standings Usually when an athlete starts jumping, they don't pass to preserve energy. The jumps start at a lower height and incrementally get higher. So a better jumper might skip the first few jumps, while the others attempt them. Once the jumper starts ...

If a batter-runner is incapacitated during a home run (or any other play where he is entitled to a particular base, such as a walk, a ground rule double, or a ball thrown into the dugout), then his team may use a substitute runner (who then takes his place in the batting order and on the field, unless further replaced). See the MLB Official Baseball rules, ...

The ball landing beyond the line of scrimmage is irrelevant, for the most part, in this question. The thing that is relevant is whether the pass went forwards from the quarterback's location, or backwards. The quarterback must be behind the line of scrimmage, of course. A forward pass that hits the ground is an incomplete pass, which ends the play and no ...

I think you are mistaken about how the Strength of Schedule tiebreaker works. When ranking teams, there are a series of tiebreakers that are used. Tie breaker number 6 is "Strength of Schedule," and it is indeed the team with the higher Strength of Schedule that is ranked above a team with a lower Strength of Schedule. I think where you might be ...

I think you have a minor issue with physics here. It's not 100% clear to me what you're describing, but there are two ways you could 'harden' the shoe: A solid mass between the upper and the foot (imagine, say, a roll of coins) This would hurt. A lot. Brass knuckles do hurt the fingers that wear them when not braced properly, and I doubt you could brace ...

The umpire (not the referee) is in charge of the scoring. Players can announce the score to their partner or even their opponents, but that is not binding in any way. It's hard to prove a negative, but you can peruse the official Laws of Badminton and won't find any mention of a fault of incorrect scoring. The following laws could apply to a talking player: ...

Most likely, this is not a foul by either player. Neither player appears to act in a way to meet any of the requirements for a direct free kick that would be relevant, as Law 12, section 1 Direct Free Kick defines the three manners as Careless is when a player shows a lack of attention or consideration when making a challenge or acts without precaution. No ...

The important detail here is likely that this is a detail only of scoring - it does not have any meaning on the field itself. When the bunt or fly occurs, it is just like any other fly ball or bunt; the batter-runner is called out, and the runner presumably advances or scores. The difference is that the scorer then rules it a sacrifice, and does not count it ...

The 1 means they have completed 1 hole. The 17 meant they had completed 17 holes. Once you finish, they show the total score for that round. This image illustrates it. The first number is the players total score through that point in the tournament. One player, Sean O’Hair, had completed his round, so it shows his round score. The rest haven’t, so it shows ...

Rule 9.17(a) states: The Official Scorer shall credit as the winning pitcher that pitcher whose team assumes a lead while such pitcher is in the game, or during the inning on offense in which such pitcher is removed from the game, and does not relinquish such lead [ some exceptions which don't apply here ] The relief pitcher in your example meets that ...

You say that the coach complained. Did the ump say anything? Do you formally present lineup cards before either game? I don't have a copy of little league rules. In MLB, the leadoff batter must be the batter in the first position on the lineup card presented to the opposing coach and the umpire before the start of the game. Unless you have some rules in ...

If the laws are followed strictly, then yes. Law 7.3 "Allowance for time lost" specifies that the referee allows for all playing time lost, with no provision to reduce it. That said, at more recreational levels of the game, it's not uncommon for the referee to be somewhat lax in their assessment of how much time was lost if one team is winning by ...

There was a similar question about squeezing the ball between two feet and hopping across the field. The answer that @studro gave there applies here as well. The questions though are not duplicates. An indirect free kick can be awarded to the opposing team because of LOTG 12.2 as already mentioned by @Joe Playing in a dangerous manner Playing in a dangerous ...

I'm not aware of any sports where such an asymmetry is directly encoded into the rules of the game. However, such asymmetries do exist as different strategies evolve "naturally" from the rules of a game. Possibly the best example of this is in table tennis, where a majority of players are "offensive" players who (dramatically ...

Literally answered here: https://the-race.com/formula-1/how-hungarian-gp-would-have-restarted-if-everyone-had-pitted/ From the article: The final car into the pitlane would have been the equivalent of the final car taking its position on the starting grid. When that car entered the pitlane the start signal would have been initiated, with five red lights ...

If both competitors don't agree to cancel the jumpoff, it will proceed as the default, and either competitor can forfeit the jumpoff (effectively "refusing" the jumpoff) making themselves the 2nd place finisher and the other athlete the winner. 26.8.1 The athlete with the lowest number of jumps at the height last cleared shall be awarded the ...

The other 2 answers given for this question, are wrong. The situation described will be given as six i.e. six runs will be awarded to batting team. I know these answers were given 7 years ago, so maybe the rules were different then. But AS THE RULES STAND currently , this will be a six. The relevant law is as follows 19.5.2 A fielder who is not in contact ...

Law 8, part 1, Kick-off states that the distance is required at all kick-offs, including those taken after a goal is scored. Other than for kick-offs, Law 10, part 3, Kicks from the Penalty Mark also requires that During kicks from the penalty mark Only eligible players and match officials are permitted to remain on the field of play All eligible players, ...

IAAF rules require that the takeoff line be placed not less than 13 metres from the nearer edge of the landing pit (for men's competition; in women's competition it is 11 metres). Notwithstanding that the rules require a hop, a step and a jump in that order, so that making two jumps would be a failure trial for the athlete, and that the men's world record is ...

The run would count, so long as it was the preceding runner (meaning, the one further ahead on the bases - in your case, the runner on third base). See rule 5.09 (d) in the MLB Rules: (d) Effect of Preceding Runner’s Failure to Touch a Base Unless two are out, the status of a following runner is not affected by a preceding runner’s failure to touch or ...
