MONACO -- Nico Rosberg took pole position for the Monaco Grand Prix ahead of Lewis Hamilton on Saturday after making a late error that left his Mercedes teammate visibly irate at missing out on a shot at qualifying in first place. Authentic Brett Hull Jersey . With Rosberg holding the best time, the Mercedes pair went out for one final qualifying lap with less than a minute remaining in the session, but the German lost control coming out of the Mirabeau turn, sliding down an escape road. After Rosberg backed out onto the circuit, a yellow flag came up -- meaning the session was over and Hamilton could not improve on his time. It was an incident that fuelled the growing rivalry between the two runaway leaders in the overall standings, with Hamilton insinuating afterward that he would get revenge. "I have apologized to Lewis for having hindered the opportunity for him to improve his lap time," Rosberg said. "I locked up the rears (tires) and then the fronts at the bumpy downhill part of the track before turn five." Stewards cleared Rosberg of any wrongdoing after studying video and telemetry evidence of his manoeuvre. Its the second pole of the season for Rosberg. Hamilton-- who leads Rosberg by just three points in the overall standings -- has the other four. Given that nine out of the past 10 Monaco GPs have all been won from pole position, Rosberg has a great chance to reclaim the overall lead from Hamilton. Rosberg won from pole position here last year for his maiden win. Rosbergs leading time was one minute 15.989 seconds, with Hamilton clocking 1:16.048 and Red Bulls Daniel Ricciardo was in third at 1:16.384. Four-time defending champion Sebastian Vettel of Germany finished fourth, while Fernando Alonso of Ferrari was fifth. Tension has been building over the last few days, with Hamilton even publicly questioning whether his teammate has enough desire. Although reluctant to discuss the incident in the post-qualifying news conference, Hamilton was later asked if the situation within Mercedes now compares to the internal rift between the late Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost, who had an extremely tense relationship racing against each other for McLaren in the late 1980s. Quizzed by British broadcaster BBC if his relationship with Rosberg was heading the same way, Hamilton responded "essentially" before adding: "I dont know if Senna and Prost sat down and talked it out. I quite like the way Senna dealt with it, so Im going to take a page out of his book." In 1989 Prost took out Senna late in the Japanese Grand Prix to win the title. At the same circuit a year after, Senna did the same to Prost, then with Ferrari, on the first turn to clinch the championship. Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff played down the incident. "I dont think anybody does that deliberately. He missed his braking and he took the exit. Thats it," Wolff said. "There is no difficulty in managing this situation of the drivers. We have spoken to them in the debrief and it was all OK." Earlier Saturday, however, Mercedes chairman Dieter Zetsche sounded almost prophetic when he said "fierce fighting for the No. 1 position" between Hamilton and Rosberg can only be good for the sport. Hamilton, the 2008 F1 champion, recently questioned his teammates hunger to win at the highest level and referred to what he considered Rosbergs easier upbringing as the son of an F1 driver. "I come from a not-great place in Stevenage and lived on a couch in my dads apartment, and Nico grew up in Monaco with jets and hotels and boats and all these kind of things," Hamilton said Thursday. "If I were to come here believing that Nico is hungrier than me then I might as well go home." Hamilton has won the past four races while Rosberg won the season opener in Australia, where Hamilton retired with engine failure. While Rosberg was smiling at the post-qualifying conference, a stern-faced Hamilton gave short answers when asked what he thought about the incident, saying "not really much" and "I was on target, yeah." Rosberg tried to soothe the situation. "Of course Im sorry for Lewis, I didnt know where he was," Rosberg said. Asked to respond to Rosbergs apology, Hamilton shrugged his shoulders and mumbled: "I dont have an answer to it." Told that it was ironic that Rosbergs mistake had led to the yellow flag and stopped the British driver, Hamilton flatly responded "yeah, its ironic." On the track, the German driver looked jubilant as he stepped out of his Mercedes, with Hamilton standing glum-faced close by.

Elliott ran for a career-high and Sugar Bowl-record 230 yards and scored two touchdowns in the Buckeyes thrilling 42-35 semifinal win over top-ranked Alabama at the Superdome on Thursday night. Ohio State, ranked fifth in the Associated Press poll, faced doubts about its worthiness after being picked fourth in the College Football Playoff rankings ahead of TCU and Baylor. It silenced the critics on Thursday night. The Buckeyes (13-1) will now face Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota and Oregon in the first College Football Playoff final on Jan. 12 after the Ducks beat Florida State in the Rose Bowl earlier Thursday. Were really thankful for the playoff system, Elliott said. They gave us a chance to go out there and show that we are one of the better teams in the nation and deserve to be in the national championship. It will be the first title game featuring two non-SEC teams since Texas beat USC in the 2006 Rose Bowl. Ohio States run to the title game came after Heisman hopeful Braxton Miller was lost to a shoulder injury in the preseason. It picked up steam after backup quarterback J.T. Barrett suffered a fractured ankle in the regular- season finale against Michigan. In stepped third-stringer Cardale Jones, who led a 59-0 rout of Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game, then took down the vaunted Crimson Tide (12-2) in just his second career start. Jones threw for 243 yards with one touchdown and an interception, while also rushing for 43 yards in the win. This is one of the great team wins we have ever been a part of, Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said. We didnt play a great game, but we played a team game. Blake Sims went 22-of-36 for 237 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions and also had a rushing touchdown for Alabama, which had its eight-game winning streak halted. Heisman Trophy finalist Amari Cooper, the Biletnikoff winner as college footballs top wide receiver, finished with nine catches for 71 yards and two touchdowns. Derrick Henry paced the Crimson Tide with 95 rushing yards and a score. T.J. Yeldon, who was a game-time decision with a hamstring injury, added a rushing touchdown. Were very disappointed at the outcome of the game, Alabama coach Nick Saban said. You have to congratulate Ohio State for playing a really good game. I take responsibility for it. You have to prepare for the game better. Ohio State will be trying to win an eighth national championship. It began the second half with Jones going deep to Devin Smith for a 47-yard touchdown and a 27-21 lead, its first since early in the opening quarter. The Buckeyes continued to put pressure on the SEC champions as Steve Miller returned an interception of Sims 41 yards to capped a string of 28 straight points scored. The Crimson Tide countered with an 84-yard drive that Sims closed with a 5- yard run, reaching over the goal line to trim the gap to six late in the third. Both teams were playing field position early in the fourth when a Crimson Tide bounce on Cameron Johnsons punt gave Alabama the ball at the Buckeyes 23. The Crimson Tide could not capitalize, though, with Sims immediately throwing an interception to Vonn Bell just outside the end zone on the folllowing play. Authentic Jonathan Ericsson Jersey. Alabama managed to move into Ohio State territory again, but Sims was bottled up for a loss of three on 3rd-and-6 from the 40. Elliott then put the Buckeyes in excellent position to advance with his 85- yard touchdown run up the left side. Sims hooked up with an open DeAndrew White for 51 yards on Alabamas ensuing possession and Cooper hauled in a 6-yard score on 4th-and-2 to pull the Crimson Tide within a touchdown with 1:59 left. Adam Griffiths onside kick attempt shot high in the air off a bounce, but Evan Spencer got his hands on the ball and held on with a few fingers to secure it. The Crimson Tide got the ball back with 1:33 left and no timeouts. Sims led them to the Buckeyes 42, where he launched a Hail Mary in the closing seconds that was intercepted by Tyvis Powell to end the game. We obviously didnt do the things that we needed to do as well as we needed to do them to win this game, Saban said. The Buckeyes bounced back from Jones lone interception -- which led to a 21-6 lead for Alabama -- with their first touchdown drive as Elliott finished off a 71-yard march with a 3-yard run up the middle. Ohio State got the ball back with 1:32 left in the first half and used some trickery to close the frame with another touchdown. Spencer took an end-around and tossed a pass to Michael Thomas, who stretched to make the catch in the end zone prior to just tapping his one foot in bounds for the score. Earlier, Jones picked up a first down on 3rd-and-6 with a 12-yard gain on Ohio States first possession. Elliott then rushed the right end three plays later, put a stiff arm on one Crimson Tide defender, leaped over another and scampered down the sideline 54 yards to the Alabama 5. Alabama did not break, however, forcing the Buckeyes into a 22-yard field goal from Sean Nuernberger to start the scoring. The Crimson Tide could not generate anything on their next touch, but their customary defense helped shift momentum. Eddie Jackson stripped Elliott on a run of 17 yards and Landon Collins came up with the loose ball. It did not take long for Alabama to capitalize, as Henry bolted down the left sideline for a 25-yard touchdown two plays later for a 7-3 lead. On OSUs next set of downs, Jones floated a pass to Smith, who settled under the deep ball and back-peddled out at the Crimson Tide 1 for a gain of 40. Ohio State had to settle for a 21-yard field goal from Nuernberger, mainly because Jones muffed the snap on 1st-and-goal. Sims capped an eight-play, 79-yard drive with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Cooper on a rollout to make it 14-6 after one quarter. The Crimson Tide added another touchdown when they turned Cyrus Jones interception into a 2-yard touchdown from Yeldon to make it 21-6 with 8:07 remaining in the first half.
