F1 » Hamilton recovers to win after Rosberg error


George Zaidan: Say Lewis, how about a "Thank You Nico" for the gift? Remember, if it was you with the race issues your fans would have a (blip) load of excuses, so say thanks to Nico.
Why should Lewis say thanks? He put Rosberg under pressure, going quicker & quicker and getting nearer & nearer with each lap until Rosberg was forced into a mistake. I'm not a Hamilton fan but I have to say, mano-a-mano, he has the beating of Rosberg. And both know it.

MotoGP » Moto2: Herrin out, Wilairot in at Caterham


Wilairot's record is not exactly impressive. 2007 (17th), 2008 (13th), 2009 (13th) - all 250cc. 2010 (22nd), 2011 (30th), 2012 (27th) - all Moto2. No wins, no podiums, no poles. Truth was that Honda brought him into the Thai Honda PTT-SAG team in 2007 because Thailand was (& is) a very important market for Honda's small bike sales. Bearing in mind this is Caterham we are talking about now, I would imagine he got the ride because he brought some Thai backers with him.

MotoGP » Aprilia boss opens up about MotoGP return


I'm not sure I really see the logic in this. The bike is 'not quite a prototype'. So it is essentially what Aprilia teams have already been running to date - an upgraded RSV4 superbike with pneumatic valves. The bike planned for 2016 is described as a brand new bike. Now I can understand running in 2015 if the bike you are campaigning is the machine that you are planning to run downstream as you can learn from and evolve the machine during the course of the season and progress faster than you otherwise would have. But if the plan is to go all-new from 2016 then frankly what is to be gained by running a somewhat uncompetitive machine next year? Surely better to keep a lower profile, perhaps give the bike to a privateer team to use but come in with a big splash in 2016 with the machine you view as being the full factory prototype?
