MotoGP » VIDEO: Nicky Hayden interview


Nicky has two AMA championships and one Moto GP championship on his resume. Few riders can make such claim. As an American, I would have liked to seen him win more Moto GP races and championships, but I fear his ship has sailed. The one thing I always thought Nicky may have lacked is ruthlessness. When it gets down to the nut-cutting, you've got to be stone cold. Nicky may not have what it takes there. I had a short encounter with Nicky at Daytona 14 years ago. He is definitely without arrogance. That's a trait many champions seem to have.

F1 » Red Bull in crisis as Massa sets pace


Tomco: Would absolutely love to see Massa come good when the racing starts and see him beat Alonso and Raikkonen. One of the nicest guys in the paddock too. Also to see Williams return to the podium a regular basis. Looks promising so far.
At times, Massa has the outright speed to beat anyone. His lack of lap after lap consistency has kept him from being a champion.

The only things that stopped from being champion were 2 engine failures and a completely screwed up pitstop. Oh and Tim O'Glock getting lost may as well mention that too.
Had it not been for engine failures and screwed up pit stops, both Kimi and Fernando would have more championships on their resume. Massa can do a few quick laps, but often as not his pace falls off somewhere during the race. Whereas, Alonso is a model of consistency.

F1 » Ecclestone responds to NASCAR criticism


Brain:
Banditfan: @cbrbamby Just because you don't like NASCAR doesn't make it a joke. Have you not watched crash fests such as BTCC or European Touring cars which are really popular. I love most forms of motor racing and at one time was a pretty hard core F1 fan but these days NASCAR puts on a really competitive show where, unlike F1, on any given weekend any one of 10 or 15 drivers could end up in first place. The reason most of us watch motorsports is be it F1, MotoGP, NASCAR or whatever is to see close racing with hopefully lots of position changes. Enjoy what you enjoy but don't belittle the race series others enjoy just because you don't like them.
I agree with most of what you say. I enjoy all motorsports, i just dont get caught up in close racing entertainment aspect of it. I get as much pleasure watching a race team get it right and kick the fields a$$, as i do watching back and forth close racing with a ton of position changes. [\blockqu
