F1 » Promoters will walk away over sound ‘disgrace’


Many years ago when noise was a problem, in the days of Mansell, I believe that Silverstone carried noise tests. An RAC Official, the late Derek Ongaro, told me that sitting on the bottom row of seats of the grandstand at the old Woodgate corner he was getting a reading of 145db. He also said that if the noise ofF1 was cut he would walk away from F1. I agreed. I am really a bike man & fully appreciate noise, even a wide open throttle 4 cyl road bike. Brian Clark

F1 » HAVE YOUR SAY: Who shone in Sao Paulo?


There were a number of heroic performances but surely the best had to be by Jenson closely followed by Hulkenberg In the early stages it was all about these 2 & staying on the tarmac, on slicks, when all about them were "dancing on ice". With a 40+ secs lead it was the pace car that closed it all up & that is how Hamilton managed to get to the frant. Unfortunately Hulkenberg blotted his copy book & Jenson, ever the rain expert, picked up the pieces & drove brilliantly till the end. Total control. Has deserved better equipment all year

MotoGP » John Hopkins tells fans to expect 'big treat'.


How can Hopkins have so much hate thrown at him. Many people change teams (& jobs even) because it seems right at the time (I know I did the same) Ever since the world champs started there have been riders who should not have been there but somehow conjured up support. Back in the 50s Gilera would give a local a ride in his home GP in the hope he could help keep the opposition away from the points & therefore help their chosen 1 Anyone read Rossi's pleas for the performance level of "private" bikes to be raised to enable them to have a chance??? :D :? :) :D :? :)

F1 » Barrichello keeps Brawn on top in Barcelona


I would think after this test there will be some worried Managers in the other teams. It is no use just saying that they must be running light. All the others will be following a similar stratejy & hoping to head the test times, to also try and attract extra sponsorship. So instead of knocking them, give them credit. One can only write about failure after the event so lets give them a chance :) :D :) :D :) :D

F1 » Ecclestone 'surprised' by Renault F1 quit threat


BE is so greedy he cannot grasp that it is HIS demands that are helping to cripple F1. In the short term the teams need more money. There is only so much available & the people shelling out up front SHOULD get more than someone who is really screwing it for the paying public. The FIA should now be looking at ways to either get him to pay more to the teams, and this should NOT be at the expense of demanding more from the individual race organisers, or replace his company, though no doubt his contract will be as tight as the one Sir Freddy G has / had with RBS :p :p Maybe Renault SHOULD walk away.

MotoGP » Rossi 'not worried' by gap to Stoner?


It seems many years ago now when my wife & I went to a BSB meeting at Cadwell. It also featured a British Champs 125 race in which a very young Casey Stoner caught my eye. Watching him through a number of corners he was inch perfect lap after lap & his style was so much like the late great Mike Hailwood. We both commented on this & have seen nothing that changes our minds since, & that is coming from a Rossi fan. So stop playing mind games yourselves, trying to understand what is going through ANY riders head. I hope they don't read these links because it could put them off forever!!! Mike H ALSO played mind games with other riders.
