F1 » Anti-Vettel heckling criticised by Horner and Lauda


I think the solution is simple for Vettel to stop the criticism and heckling, change teams and see if the wins continue. Not only will you win respect for taking on a new challenge but help to keep interest in F1 which will soon be waning should his streak continue. Moto GP suffered a similar fate when Michael Doohan was winning his Moto GP titles at all cost. Nobody bothered to watch because everyone knew who would win with the best rider on the best bike which opened the door for World Superbike to achieve the popularity it now enjoys because you never know who will win.

F1 » Anti-Vettel heckling criticised by Horner and Lauda


Fullofit September 23, 2013 3:17 PM I think Seb is clearly the best driver in F1 at the moment, & I had no problem with Michael or Ayrton pushing the limit & sometimes beyond in their competition with others ... but Seb is still part of a team, & in Malaysia he not only stuck a knife between Marks shoulder blades ... he put his own interests above 200+ other team members ... including his superiors. He then followed it up with tremendous arrogance when an apology would have been the appropriate thing to do. While I enjoy his driving & admire his skills on track, I am disappointed by his character. I'm not going to boo him, but people react differently to being let down. This domino effect should be a lesson to all sports icons that sometimes you can lose more even when you win. @ Fullofit, this is the single best most sensible and morally correct post i have ever read concerning Vettel.

MotoGP » Agostini or Hailwood? Lorenzo picks Rossi


I think it was very admirable for Jorge to say that it would be Rossi in legends group that he would hold in such high regard especially because he is going on personal experience in riding against him. One can only truly judge against those who had raced as opposed to what one would have seen or read or heard after the fact. I think that nowadays there is an amicable admiration for all of the riders at the top because they all are in such rare air to be racing at that level.

MotoGP » British MotoGP, Silverstone - Race Results


Lana "September 01, 2013 2:25 PM I find it hard to understand why Rossi is not able to stay with the top 3 guys in earlier part of races and than produce same lap times with the top 3 in the later part of the races...I just wonder what he can do if he could stay with the top 3 in the first ten laps or so.... Can someone give me a logical explanation...???!!..I dont think even Rossi knows...." @ Lana The reasons are simple 1 Age, Rossi approaching mid 30's Lorenzo, Dani, Marc early to mid 20's 2 Not the same bike as Lorenzo, if you'd been watching MOTO GP since the late 80's you'd know that the No 1 rider gets the best eqipment. 3 even with Rossi's pedigree the Yam has been developed to suit JLo style

A couple of points here. Dani will never win a championship and the reason was clear as to why today. Had the pace but not the balls to make a move on his team mate. Note to Dani WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Second several people have commented on the way Yamaha and Jorge celebrated after beating Marquez. NOTE TO NON RACERS if you were getting beaten by a rookie who seemed unstoppable, overtook you late in just about every race to win AND you had a broken collarbone which prevented you from riding at 100 % for much of the season youd be celebrating too.

MotoGP » Double shoulder surgery for Ben Spies


I think there comes a time in every athletes life where they must take that hard step to decide to either continue being mediocre as they age or try to come back from injury or quit. It can be a hard decision if youre used to winning, just ask federrer, schumacher, owen,the list goes on. In a sport like Motorbike racing at this level I think the choice can be easily made when one has suffered such calamity and misfortune. He has enjoyed a successful career in AMA and in WSBK and I think he can and should walk away now while he would be remembered in a positive light as opposed to hanging around hoping to be top ten on a non competitive bike.
