WSBK » Giugliano: I am constantly over the limit


grantrd: I think the days of the twin are numbered.... Even in the Evo class it struggles against the fours ... Maybe Ducati should try something else... Most of the others have...
I seem to remember the exact same thing said in 2002 when the 996 was coming to the end of it's life. Then came the 999, 1098 & 1198 and numerous championship wins followed. I agree about the monocoque though. A Panigale motor in a trellis frame would be winning races.

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow leaves Ducati for Honda?


This seems a very wishy-washy story. The deadline for making a decision was 31st July. In case you hadn't noticed Crash, it is now 2nd August! So if CC were to leave he would be in breach of contract with Ducati. Having said that, I'm sure Ducati would let him leave without penalty (& probably with a sense of relief) as they could then put Iannone in the factory team to partner Dovi.

MotoGP » Crutchlow out, Iannone in at Ducati


Why do some of you guys think he had a pay-off from Ducati? CC had until the end of July whether to opt out of the second year of his contract. His choice, not Ducati's. He decided to do that because of the LCR ride. No compensation when you quit (unless you are a (w)banker that is). Cal thinks he will do better on the Honda. Good luck. Ducati glad to see the back of him. As a Ducati fan, I'm glad to see the back of him. Iannone glad to get the factory seat (which he deserves). So everybody is happy.

F1 » Issues ‘very difficult to swallow’ - Hamilton


My goodness, some of you folk really are beyond pathetic. Whatever your feelings about Hamilton as a person, he is undoubtedly (together with Alonso) one of the few true racers on the grid. The point that he has suffered repeated issues in qualifying that are not his fault yet despite that has driven through the field to even beat his team-mate in Hungary shows his ability and determination. Some of his recent comments are clearly designed to shake his side of the garage up to improve reliability (entirely justified) and to prevent a repeat of the crazy 'move over' team orders (again fully justified).

F1 » Axed Caterham staff to sue new team owners


Redundancy law is quite specific - if there are 20 to 99 redundancies (as here) then the company is legally obliged to enter into staff consultation at least 30 days before any dismissals take effect. Consultations must cover: Ways to avoid redundancies. The reasons for redundancies. How to keep the number of dismissals to a minimum. How to limit the effects for employees involved, eg by offering retraining. There must also be an objective selection procedure to choose those who are selected for redundancy. If Caterham didn't follow such a procedure then the affected staff would be entirely within their rights to consider action for unfair dismissal and breach of contract. Good luck to them.
