RR » McGuinness' chances ruined by '10p bolt'


Firstly I have to declare that I am a fan of classic bikes and love to see (& hear) then trundling around a circuit. But am I alone in thinking that racing these replicas is fundamentally wrong? These Patons (aka Mondial) are not classic bikes. They achieved little success in the late 50's and 60's and the ones being raced in the IOM are simply brand new replicas. I know some of the Suzuki's are new replicas too. To my mind, Classic racing should be about genuine original bikes and not some modern replica.

F1 » Kate Walker: Nico’s alleged thoughtcrime


shamarone: re: "So much for our great "democratic" system where we no longer enjoy freedom of speech" right then, let's not confuse "freedom of speech" for... a "freedom to be irresponsible".
Freedom of speech means exactly that - the freedom to say absolutely anything, no matter how offensive to certain people, without fear of consequences (other than someone disagreeing with you). There is not a country on this planet that actually has freedom of speech.

F1 » Wolff: ‘No knee-jerk reaction’ at Mercedes


Frankly, it's really hard to see practically what Mercedes can do. If they nominate a Number 1 driver, the other one will simply ignore it. Neither are going to ask for or give any quarter on the track. Any semblance of being a 'team' has now gone out of the window. The 'winner' will now be either the most aggressive, or the luckiest, or both. Either way, I can't see both remaining with Mercedes for 2015 - it just wouldn't work.

Does anyone really want absolute freedom of speech? Some speech can harm people and that should not be allowed. And I am not talking about being offended. An interesting question. You may be right but freedom is like pregnancy - you either are or you are not, there is no middle position. When certain ideas are suppressed because someone views they may be harmful then that is censorship & freedom cannot truly exist where censorship is exercised.
