MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 1st


I think the first place is well deserved by Valentino. He proved a lot of people wrong didn't he so it was no surprise to see him poll at No1. I can't wait to see what 2015 brings as I think Vale will once again be in contention for another title, many will disagree with me, but just think about this 2 years ago many was saying Valentino was finished never likely to win another race. And no one can say he did it against poor opposition this past year, the whole grid really is top class. Good luck to them all in 2015.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 2nd


Well this will cause a stir but I don't give a damn about that I will say it how it is. I voted Rossi first & Marquez second, in my opinion the reason to give Rossi the first place is clear. The bikes, so which is the best, well it has been widely acknowledged for around 2 full seasons that the Honda is a fair bit ahead of the Yamaha, ok I think Yamaha has closed the gap a little but I think Honda still maintain the edge. The riders, so who is the best, well I think Rossi well I would as I'm a fan of his been watching him since his 125 days and have not missed a race come to think about it I have barely missed any qualifying and warm ups in all these years I have watched motogp. There is no doubt that Marquez is a good talented rider who is fast and is fully prepared to give everything to win. Now what many may not agree with what I'm about to say I actually think its a very valid point. Honda have been very clever in their selection of Riders, they have brought them through the

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 2nd


This continued from my last post. Honda have been very clever in their selection of Riders, they have brought them through the different classes to the top, this is to be commended, however the thing is they tend to be small & light and I think this gives them a fairly big advantage, I think if the weight was the same for all you would not see Marquez at the top as much. I think the rules should be changed to make the weight the same for all, I think you would see a different story all together. When you consider that Rossi is one of the heaviest rider on the grid & he has the second best bike on the grid & he beat Lorenzo after the 2 appalling years at Ducati I think he has proved a lot wrong this year & he on equal machinery would have won many more races this year. If Yamaha get the gearbox sorted and everything right then there is no reason why Rossi can not challenge for a title next year. It will be very interesting too when the control ECU comes in 2016, that will sort out

MotoGP » MotoGP pay TV 'something we must face'


This is just to do with greed its really as simple as that, I have no issue with pay tv, what I have an issue with is Ripp off Pay Tv, it seems to be a way of the world. Sooner rather than later it will have a knock on effect, just look at football these days, the amount of times you look at the stands in football grounds half empty on the Saturday evening program on sky sports. The sad fact is they have priced fans out of the grounds, the same will happen with pay tv because it's not cheap.

F1 » Ferrari appoints new F1 team principal


Ferrari are obviously in a mess, it seems to me they don't know what to do. Get ross Braun back and quickly if you want to get some proper F1 organization back in Ferrari they need it. They are in danger of running near the back at this rate, they need to do something pretty quickly as it is not good enough. No wonder Alonso has left them, it will be interesting to see what Vettel will do but unless the car has a big improvement I don't see Vettel doing much as he is not as good as everyone claimed he was.

F1 » Alonso can’t commit future to Ferrari


Ferrari are in a mess, they can not design a decent car, are slowly but surely going backwards and are now just fighting for 4th place in the Constructors championship. Apart from the lure of driving for Ferrari and being paid a decent salary to do so, what top driver in their right mind would either want to stay or go there? The designers need to get their act together and get a decent car designed with a strong engine, then they will attract top drivers, but I would not blame Alonso one bit if he decided to leave Ferrari.

MotoGP » Victorious Valentino Rossi 'at the best of my career'


Fantastic Result for you Vale, we are massive Rossi fans and always knew you would be back at the front. To all those who kept saying he was finished 2 years ago, I hope your eating humble Pie! The bike is getting better week by week it is clear to see that, the bike is faster, Vale is getting to grips with the tyres too and Yamaha are sorting the electronics and engine so all around a good Job. I think we could see Vale win another race this year too.

F1 » Mattiacci blames grid positions for poor showing


Rubbish, the team simply is not good enough any more. Of course if you start lower down the order you have to make up places, however both Ferrari drivers went backwards in the race, no pace at all. It's about time the excuses stopped and that Ferrari got things in place in the design of the whole car is obviously poor end of story. 3 years of poor design now needs rectifying.
