Former F1 driver Jolyon Palmer, who left Renault during the 2017 season, has joined the BBC team to offer insight and analysis from the point of view of the competitors.The Singapore Grand Prix wasn't a classic by any means. Lewis Hamilton took a good step closer to the title with a dominant victory, but while the 2018 title fight is starting to fizzle out, there is already plenty to get excited about for 2019.This year's driver-transfer market has probably been the most interesting I can remember. There have been so many switches, resulting in plenty of new pairings and match-ups that will be fascinating to watch in 2019. It looks like of all 10 teams, only Mercedes will remain unchanged. The most exciting changes for me are two movers into top teams - Charles Leclerc to Ferrari and Pierre Gasly to Red Bull.Why it's good to take risks on driversIt is always interesting to see new, young faces in top drives, and down the years it's actually been very…

Phelps won five Olympic golds in his final Games at Rio 2016Legendary US swimmer Michael Phelps says more must be done to support Olympians after they move out of the spotlight.Phelps, 33, said in January that he contemplated suicide during the worst periods of his own depression."I don't think there's been much help for when an athlete retires," he said."When we're done it's kind of like we're just moved along or brushed aside because there's somebody else that's coming up."Phelps won a record 23 Olympic gold medals, competing at Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, London 2012 and, after retirement and a comeback, Rio 2016.The American, now retired for good, suffered from depression in the wake of each Games.

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge celebrates after scoring against PSG. It was his second goal of the season, after he came off the bench to score in Liverpool's first Premier League game against West HamIf Liverpool are going to challenge on multiple fronts this season then Daniel Sturridge is going to play a big part for them - and he showed why in their Champions League win against Paris St-Germain.You could argue that Sturridge might have had more than one goal with the chances he had, but the reason he got those opportunities was because of his awareness in the box and his movement into the right areas.Yes, he might not give you the work-rate off the ball that you get from Roberto Firmino, who is incredibly clever with the way he presses the opposition.But Sturridge brings something different to the team in that he is a natural talent on the ball as well.
