MotoGP » Denning: Race stats show Suzuki's real potential


Suzuki had NO plans to build a prototype 1000cc engine and bike and certainly they wouldn't throw a penny more at the 800, the decision was made in june guys, they were widely reported as announcing something along these line in early july, they didn't..if Denning is effectively making them consider the future of an entire grand prix team, on race by race basis, then take your hat off to him ( look at todays evidence that may well be the case, such detailed performance data is aimed at japan, not us 'fans' )..forget the fact some can't stand him, if he manages to convince them that their inclusion would bear some fruit then motogp fans should applaud that...just what is the problem with that. Personally thinking, they really must consider ditching the mitsubishi electronics management system for next years entry, EVERYONE else has the latest marvel system by magnetti marelli...the electronics affect everything and I mean everything..wouldn't it be curious to see if the tyre heat proble

F1 » Exhaust failure blamed for Heidfeld fire


you can throttle the engine as much or as little as you like, regardless of the pit lane speed limit..the limiter kicks in when approaching the defined speed..you might feel 6k revs 'best' whilst feathering the clutch is quicker from leaving the pit crew, and less harsh to whatever components you need to be wary of...some guys employ excessive revs when about to leave their pit crew..I'd be surprised if there isn't a 'formula' for what works best but Senna always said 'like a granny' appeared to be the best launch from the lights but 'psychologically it'd never work'...slightly different than the pit stop but given myriad computer aided programs and analysis, it's still about getting up to speed in the fastest manner YOU feel is possible and appropriate.

MotoGP » FIM confirms Motegi to go ahead


continued: japan should be lauded for their dedication to making the event possible but please don't mock those that have genuine concerns for themselves and hence their futures and possible future family plans..in bad taste but there was a very funny remark here about dani 'possibly' passing on a mutated 'tall gene'..comical but it gives insight into just what events could transpire decades down the line.

MotoGP » FIM confirms Motegi to go ahead


there is a degree of risk involved and everyone 'expected' to attend should be concerned..yes, all manner of contracts are involved but do you really think lorenzo or stoner would willingly give up 25pts on a whim..think about that, it could be the difference of a world title..they shouldn't be castigated based upon the evidence of attending being a 'negligible risk'..the weather conditions alone dictate the risk factor..radiation poisoning is one of the most horrid conditions one could imagine, the fact there is any risk whatsoever should give the fim concern..there should be no 'heartstring policy' feeling somewhat indebted to japan for their dedication to world bike production and the 'sport' itself...i'm surprised the event was even considered this year, there are too many individual emotions / convictions involved and the wisest choice would be to postpone and consider two events for japan next year..conditions allowing naturally..japan should be lauded for their dedication to mak

F1 » Ecclestone: BBC/Sky Sports deal not just about money


No, it was about the bbc saying 'this is how much we've got, we've done a good job promoting f1 and will continue to do so IF you accept what's on the table'..how can sky get a 'bigger audience' when they're merely hoping to rope in those dedicated to f1 already..the bigger audience is for themselves and not f1..i'm curious whether the myriad english speaking countries will sign up to sky's broadcast or decide to take a highlights package the bbc can offer. will australia, new zealand, south africa, canada etc agree to pay double what they do now...the only true f1 fan benefactors are those in the market now looking for counterfeit sky cards because they'll get free movies also ...there are a few of these cards around if you ask the right folk and cheap to boot...anyone want one lol...

MotoGP » Ben Bostrom gets MotoGP chance with LCR Honda


Look guys, half of you are missing the point..Lucio Cecchinello apart from being a one off motogp owner, is a bloody good businessman...he's killing two birds with one stone, making some money from the mutual association with and of Jordan's man Bostrom, getting good publicity ( paramount )PLUS Elias has all manner of 'protective elements' in his contract and in order not to HAVE to pay Elias off by kicking him, he's gradually worked his way down the list of these protective elements...if Bostrom performs on an 'equal footing' with Elias, Elias will walk...end of...

F1 » Vettel: We need KERS now!


Red Bull will never have the full power KERS and he knows it. They have the best compromise Newey was prepared to offer in his creation. I wonder if Marko has put him up to this...sort of sending a message to the big boss, indirectly, or to have more impact than the picture he paints when he reports back to Mr Red Bull...

IndyCar » Andretti snaps up Indy 500 pole engineer


Katherine Legge, dear me that is a sad thing to read for Sam Schmidt to have to consider. It must disheartening for all the engineers and mechanics when someone of Legge's calibre pitches up to take control of your car. Hopefully such talk and maybe actions will only be temporary and one day soon they'll get the much needed sponsorship AND talent all in one foul swoop :)

NASCAR » Keep working at it, Montoya tells Kimi


JJJ,no.neither were committed enough to their cause, too much hard graft like training etc when they saw it as something from a time gone by.it's not just about racing,a mere protion of it is such. Montoya left F1 before his time but is past the ability and past caring.F1 was far too serious for him, he really struggled sharing anything data wise,he wanted it all to himself but above all he struggled with his weight !! Kimi just struggled when the conditions weren't perfect,watch Alonso for someone that makes the absolute best of what they have.Kimi races primarily for the pay cheque but doesn't give of himself any time for the sponsors who pay him,his biggest negotiations were about not HAVING TO spend time with engineers and media beyond his being at the race track.Kimi so so rarely visited Marinello it was a standing joke )AND he drinks a lot,Ferrari just plain eventually 'understood him' and so booted him asap,paid him a fortune to go in fact.Attitude like an amateur 'fun driver',d
