F1 » Dennis’ dig at Mercedes F1 engines

OK Ron, I'll buy the idea that the motors the Mercedes team have are probably superior to the 'customer' engines they are providing to other teams. BUT That doesn't explain why other Mercedes powered teams such as Force India and Williams are ahead of you in the manufacturers standing. In the case of Williams, WAY ahead of you. For sure McLaren will get the very best Honda can produce because they are the only team being supplied by Honda (at the moment). But it remains to be seen whether Honda's best is a match for the 'customer' Mercedes motor.

F1 » Button: The FIA did a really good job

Fair & balanced viewpoint from Button I think. Nowadays it always seems that when anything bad happens, some folk are immediately looking for someone else to blame and point the finger at. As much as what happened to Bianchi was terrible, it was an accident and a million to one co-incidence. Undoubtedly there will be an exhaustive enquiry and if there are lessons to be learned then I'm sure they will be applied. Meanwhile let's all wish Bianchi a successful recovery.

WSBK » Giugliano: I don’t understand why I’m crashing so often

Me: (Giugliano) trying to ride the bike beyond your limit just to keep up. Yearby23: He's over riding the bike. Tomco: they are having to ride the wheels of(f) those bikes. So essentially we are all saying the same thing? The fact is that Giugliano is over-riding the bike past its limit. You can argue that it is the bike that is not good enough, or the rider, or a combination of the two but the indisputable fact is that when a bike is consistently over-ridden then the most likely scenario is a trip to the gravel trap.

BTCC » Thruxton to modify Church run-off area

Paula Takington: Good, it need doing badly
Agreed, but I think the odds of it happening are slim. As mentioned in the story the modifications will require planning permission. The council & residents are dead against Thruxton (even though the circuit was there before most of the moaning 'incomers'). Rather than getting permission, I can see this being used as an argument to close the circuit on safety grounds.
