Sportscars » Nissan announces factory LMP1 Le Mans return

Is it just me or have F1 and endurance racing slowly morphed into the other over the recent past? F1 seems like a compressed version of LeMans, with car/tire preservation the main focus, while WEC cars go pretty much flat out the whole race. I'm also struck by how close the competition is in WEC, and finishers seem to be pretty darn close race's end, especially considering the race's length. F1 just gets dominated by one team at a time. Sadly ironic isn't it?

F1 » Gearbox woes for Raikkonen

At least Ferrari picked one of the least overly whiny drivers on the grid. While it can never be accounted for, history has shown that luck in F1 seems to balance out over time, no matter what. converse to Kimi, just look at Vettel, he had to drop that years-old rabbit's foot eventually. So I still have hope.

F1 » Raikkonen: ‘A shame’ F1 drivers are restricted

While high risk in more than one way, driving in other series also has a chance of raising a driver's stock and exposure. We've seen how integral passion is to even attempt racing for wins and titles, but no matter how unique each series is, historically, legends somehow find a transcendent level of drive they can channel into real speed in any machine. I sometimes like to ponder, if only Kimi had followed through on that LeMans test and actually given it a go before returning, and even respect his NASCAR adventure. As long as racing is to be had, Kimi, and others like Schumi, Seb Loeb and Val Rossi become infectious passion in-carnate on-track, a living expression of us fans' true love of speed. Proudly carrying that shared piece of our soul with them in success or even failure is special indeed.

MotoGP » Riders want lighter MotoGP bikes

I'm actually all for Motogp going to a smaller, lighter format. Maybe with the lighter bikes they should go to something like 750cc, or even closer to 650-700. I'm completely speculating here, so I'm ignoring Moto2 atm. Corner speeds were a concern with the 800s, so going even smaller is one of the best solutions I can think of. I'm sure they could still be ridiculously fast compared to streetbikes.

WSBK » Perfect Rea on top of the world

I almost hate to bring this up, but after reading the article about "cheater" frames on Motomatters, I sort of wonder if Honda is making the most of this kind of thing before the proper enforcement comes into effect. Not to take anything from Johnny -- he's riding superbly atm, and stomping his teammate -- just food for thought.
