Sport Hamilton boss delighted after 14-goal Scottish Women's Cup rout over Inverness
Mercedes could land surprise blow to Red Bull if Lewis Hamilton retires from F1 in 2022
PIERRE GASLY's long-term Formula One future is unclear - and perhaps a surprise move to Mercedes could be on the cards before the 2023 season.Gasly finished ninth in the 2021 Drivers' Championship but was widely considered one of the more impressive drivers on the grid, particularly of Hamilton and Max Verstappen, as he finished in the points 15 times. The best of those came at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix where he ended third.
Hamilton Women’s head coach Gary Doctor was pleased to see his side run up a 14-goal rout in the Scottish Women’s Cup – but knows a much more difficult task awaits them this weekend.
Tara McGonigle netted five in a stunning display against Inverness as Hamilton scored three times in the first ten minutes.
Lauren Evans and Josephine Giard both struck hat-tricks while Tiree Burchill, Fiona Cullie and Megan Quigley were also on target.
Now a tough assignment on their return to SWPL 1 action following a winter break awaits Accies against champions Glasgow City, who they have also drawn in the Scottish Women’s Cup fourth round.

LEWIS HAMILTON missed out on landing his eighth F1 championship last month.Lewis Hamilton missed out on landing a record eighth F1 championship last month as he was beaten to the title in controversial style at the season-decider in Abu Dhabi. Hamilton led for almost the entire Grand Prix, before race director Michael Masi allowed title rival Max Verstappen to pull level with him for a one-lap shootout after a safety car had come onto the track following a crash.
Hamilton are bottom after one win in their first 11 games.
Doctor said: “It was one of those games where we didn’t know what to expect from our opponents. We didn’t know what the team would be until hours before the game because of Covid right now.
“We did a couple sessions over Christmas and New Year and you could tell that with the sharpness in the game. I thought we played well and our goals came from stuff we had looked at.
“Some of the goals were really well put together. It could have been a slog after scoring three in the first 10 minutes but the players kept their work-rate up. Hopefully the Inverness result gives us a bit of confidence heading into the second half of the season as we hadn’t won since the opening day.
“We have just found out that we have drawn Glasgow City in the next round which is a bit of a disappointment. They are always a really good opponent.

LEWIS HAMILTON missed out on a record eighth F1 championship this season.As the race was entering its latter stages, Williams' Nicholas Latifi crashed into a wall, which resulted in a safety car being deployed.
“We have got closer to them in some games but you know what you are facing – the top players. It’s going to take a lot to get a result.”
Accies are in need of a positive league result after a difficult first season in the top tier of Scottish women’s football. But Doctor says games against the likes of Glasgow City must be relished.
He added: “We move into much harder games to come but the Inverness result gets us going again after what has been a tough few months.
“We’re going to have to get a result from somewhere, whether that’s a draw or a win. Somebody has got to do it at some point and we have got to have a bit of belief in ourselves.”
