JENSON BUTTON believes Mark Web- ber could be his most serious threat in GermanyonSundayasanotherEngland versus Australia showdown looms. Button has a 25-point lead over Ger- man Sebastian Vettel, but it is his Red Bull team-mate Webber, a further three- and-a-half points behind, who could be the Nurburgring king. TheRedBullsfinishedfirstandsecond in the British Grand Prix three weeks ago, when Button could only manage sixth after four successive wins. Vettel is bidding for a third race win of the season but Button believes Webber could be abouttoendhis128-racewin- less streak. Its going to be a difficult weekend, said the Brawn GP driver. The Red Bull is not just Sebastian because I think Mark is going to be quick here. He has more experience round here. Sebastian has never raced in an F1 car here. Sebastian looks like he can be quicker but consistency-wise, Web- ber looks stronger. Hes a lot smoother and looks less ragged than Sebastian. Its two different styles. Todays first practice session con- firmed Buttons concerns. Webber was fastest at just under four- tenthsof asecondaheadof Button,with Felipe Massa in third. Vettel was back in eighth, after sitting out 25 minutes of the session due to loose wiring. Button believes it is important for the sports credibility that teams do not favour one driver over the other. I just hope Red Bull are doing the same as us, which is looking after both drivers in the same way, he said. We are eight races in and we all deserve a fair shot at it, with Mark just 3.5 points behind Sebastian. They are fighting each other, as are Rubens Barrichello and myself. The thing is we dont know who is going to be on top in this race because there are four cars we know are competitive. Theres a chance the Ferraris and Toyotasaregoingtobethereaswell.But if you look at the last couple of races youd say it was the Red Bulls and the Brawns in front. Its exciting because you never know 40 Friday, 10 July 2009 London Lite LITESPORT Inbrief A sprint queen at just fifteen JODIE WILLIAMS, the 15-year- old sprint sensation from Welwyn Garden City, won the 100m at the World Youth Championships in Italys Sud Tirol last night.

Danny sticks his Orr in until 2010 HARLEQUINS half-back Danny Orr has agreed a new contract to keep him at the club until the end of 2010. Quins signed Orr from Wigan Warriors in 2006 and he is currently captaining the side in the absence of Rob Purdham.

Rain adds pain for the Windies ONLY 18.5 overs of play were possible yesterday as rain disrupted the first day of the first Test between Bangladesh and West Indies at St Vincent. The visitors were 42-0 at the end of a stop-start day. The game had been overshadowed by a second string being selected for the West Indies after the likes of Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Ramnaresh Sarwan pulled out over a contract dispute. Trotts got Ed in his pocket ED JOYCE, the former Middlesex batsman now at Sussex, was caught by Warwickshires Jonathan Trott at short leg yesterday -- when the ball flew straight into the fielders pocket.

Klein language orderforBrydan FORMER Australian Open junior champion Brydan Klein has been banned for six months for racially abusing an opponent. The 19- year-old Australian was initially fined 8,613 and suspended by Tennis Australia for a volley of abuse aimed at South African Raven Klaasen in the qualifying rounds of the Aegon International in Eastbourne last month.

Jump to it: Britains top long jumper Chris Tomlinson CHRIS TOMLINSON believes he can break his own British long jump record at the Aviva World Trials & UK Championships, which get under way in Birmingham on Friday night. The 27-year-old won silver in the world indoor championships in Valencia last year and is determined to add a major outdoor medal to his haul ahead of the world championships in Berlin in August. Only the winner of each event is guaranteed selection -- assuming they have the qualifying standard -- with the remainder of the team selected on 27 July and announced the following day. Its very important to win the trials and get on the plane for the world championships, Tomlinson said. I went into the trials last year but I had a hard time through injury. That lasted for a number of months and I was injured for the indoor season this year as well, but now Im feeling pretty good and things are going well. Tomlinsons British record stands at 8.29m but the Middlesbrough athlete knows he could need much better than that to win a medal in Berlin. He added: A few weeks ago, I would have been right in there. Now a couple of guys have gone 8.60 - 8.70m. Ive certainly got the potential this year to go 8.40 - 8.50m, but its a matter of me actively doing it now competitively. Ive basically got to break the British record.
