Thursday April 7 2022 WEATHER 39 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA only thing that is going to make everyone happy is a podium and thats what I would love but truthfully we are still a bit off that. Ricciardo said it would be a dream if he could complete one of his famous celebratory shoeys on the podium at his home grand prix. Dont get me wrong, I want it so bad, Ricciardo said. I feel its probably the first shoey that I would do that wouldnt be alone. Im pretty sure Id look down at the crowd and there would be others doing it with me. A collaborative shoey would be a dream. their 2022 F1 campaign in the first two races. The Australian and his teammate Lando Norris finished 14th and 15th in the season-opening race in Bahrain and Ricciardo was then forced to retire due to an engine failure in Saudi Arabia. Ricciardo said his aim for the Australian Grand Prix the first race held at Albert Park since 2019 due to the pandemic was to finish in the points. Honestly, as simple as it sounds, I dont have any points yet, Ricciardo said. So to get in the points is, lets say, a start. Its like a bare minimum. But realistically the AUSTRALIAN Daniel Ricciardo is dreaming of a collaborative shoey at his home grand prix but he concedes McLaren is still some way off climbing its way on to the podium after a challenging start to the Formula One season. But the eight-time grand prix winner remains confident McLaren can develop the newspec car throughout the year to put the team in much better shape as he prepares to line up on the grid for the first time in Australia for three years. Ricciardo and McLaren have endured a rough start to Ricciardos points plan Tanami Tiwi Daly Arnhem Carpentaria Gregory Barkly Simpson Lasseter Sunrise Sunset Moonrise Moonset 6:51 am 6:46 pm 11:41 am 11:14 pm Apr 17 Apr 23 May 1 Apr 9 Thu Apr 7 Fri Apr 8 Sat Apr 9 Sun Apr 10 Mon Apr 11 Tue Apr 12 Wed Apr 13 Thu Apr 14 3:29am 1.7m 9:46am 6.6m 3:10pm 3.2m 8:51pm 6.1m 4:00am 2.1m 10:22am 6.1m 3:39pm 3.7m 9:07pm 5.5m 4:39am 2.6m 11:07am 5.6m 4:30pm 4.1m 9:16pm 5.0m 5:35am 3.1m 12:15pm 5.3m 6:45pm 4.4m 9:10pm 4.5m 7:03am 3.4m 2:42pm 5.2m 10:41pm 4.0m 3:16am 4.5m 9:10am 3.3m 4:09pm 5.6m 10:46pm 3.6m 4:09am 5.1m 10:24am 2.9m 4:45pm 6.1m 11:09pm 3.0m 4:48am 5.7m 11:09am 2.4m 5:17pm 6.6m 11:37pm 2.5m Darwin 23 34 7.8 Tindal 26 38 Jabiru 25 35 6.2 Nhulunbuy 25 34 Borroloola 25 39 Lajamanu 23 40 Tennant Creek 22 37 Alice Springs 13 33 Yulara 19 32 Location Min Max *Rain Location Min Max *Rain * rainfall 24 hours to 9am yesterday 1024 1008 1016 1016 TC Fili 1008 1007 1033 WARNINGS Latest information at www.bom.gov.au/australia/warnings Coastal & Land Weather 1300 659 214 Tropical Cyclone 1300 659 211 NORTHERN TERRITORY A slight chance of showers and gusty storms over the western Top End.

Picture: AFP Lakers miss playoffs THE Los Angeles Lakers have been officially eliminated from post-season contention as the Phoenix Suns sent the crisisstricken NBA giants spinning to a seventh straight defeat. With an injured LeBron James watching from the sidelines, the Lakers faint hopes of scraping into the playoffs were snuffed out as the Western Conference leaders turned on the style to complete a convincing 121-110 win in Phoenix. The Los Angeles defeat and San Antonios 116-97 win over the Denver Nuggets earlier Tuesday mean the Lakers will not be in the postseason for the first time since 2019. It is only the fourth time since James entered the league in 2003 that the NBA superstar has failed to reach the postseason. Were extremely disappointed, Lakers coach Frank Vogel said. Disappointed for our fanbase, disappointed for the (ownership), that gave us this opportunity.
