F1 » Raikkonen urges for a faster, more ‘dangerous’ F1

It seems every time a racing series attempts to control costs they lose fans and don't control costs much, if at all. Cost control was the reason for the formation of the Indy Race League, which in-turn caused the demise of Champ Cars. Champ Car races frequently had over 100,000 race day attendance. Today's Indy Car races, excepting the Indy 500, are sparsely attended. Many Indy Car venues have more empty seats than those seats with bodies in them. It appears F1 (read Bernie Ecclestone) has taken a page out of the Tony George book,"How to run off racing fans". Racing is not for the skint of pocketbook. There will always be some who are better at raising money than others, and some who are better at using money to race. Let it be so.

F1 » Rosberg, Alonso pledge support to retain Monza

derek.mookin.9: Drop Monaco, complete bore fest!
I agree. I assume it's an incredible experience if you were there soaking up the atmosphere but on TV it leaves a lot to be desired.
I've been following F1 for some 50 years. I still get pumped about Monaco. Re: Bernie Ecclestone. Evidently, Bernie feels he built F1, so now he's entitled to destroy it. Which is exactly what he is doing.

MotoGP » Rossi: The championship is still very long!

nikisan: Can someone explain this to me - Rossi has the most podiums of any rider in history, yet Agostini has the most wins? You would think a guy who has 122 wins would have been around long enough to have a lot of 2nds and 3rds too.
From 1967 thru 1974, Agostini, except for a few rare races finished first. When he rode for MV Agusta, 1965 to 1973, MV essentially had no competition in the 500cc class. MV was that dominate.
