Mercedes unhappy despite extending lead in F1 title race

  Mercedes unhappy despite extending lead in F1 title race Mercedes is giving a false impression of dominance in this season’s Formula One championship. That’s the opinion of the team’s head of motorsport, Toto Wolff. On the surface, all appears on track with just five races remaining in the season: — Lewis Hamilton leads by 34 points from Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel. — Mercedes is 118 points clear of Ferrari and close to sealing a fourth straight constructors’ championship. — Hamilton is odds-on for a third F1 title in four years with Mercedes, and fourth overall.

But its president has written to the city saying he "strongly believes" Hamilton would be a good host. And Hamilton , city staff say, will pay a lower bid cost. Hamilton wants the Junos back, makes bid for 2019, 2020 awards.

TORONTO - Hamilton is bidding to host the 2019 Juno Awards with an extra request: it wants to become the permanent home of the coveted Canadian music event.

The city council general issues committee reached an agreement on Wednesday to submit an offer that will be hitched to the belief that Hamilton's burgeoning arts community offers enough reason for the Junos to stay put.

A spokeswoman for mayor Fred Eisenberger confirmed that even if the Junos don't agree to those terms, the city wants to host the ceremony for at least three to five years in a row. Questions about how much it was willing to pay were not immediately answered by local representatives.

Hamilton's city council will make a final vote on the bid at a meeting slated for Oct. 11

Juno organizers have a long history with the city, which most recently held the awards show there in 2015. Before that, the Junos descended on Hamilton five times between 1995 and 2001. Next year's show will be held in Vancouver.

A host city carries a number of tourism benefits, aside from being prominently featured on the telecast. The Juno Awards are surrounded by roughly a full week of events at local venues, as well as the Juno Cup hockey game and several music education fundraisers.

A statement from Junos head Allan Reid emphasized that other Canadian locales are also vying to become the 2019 host city, and that a decision won't be forthcoming.
