F1 » Mugello F1 test times – day three: 3 May – 4pm


Times at Mugello will be very irrelevant as they don't race there, so teams will be using it to test new parts and to run a setup for a circuit still to come this season. A setup that may not be good for Mugello. Also if they are testing tyres they just want a consistent race pace from the drivers to see what the tyres will do, no silly fast laps that wouldn't happen during a race run. Renault are going quick perhaps they are working more on qualifying setup, their race pace is already good so if they can qualify on the front 2 rows then wins can happen.

MotoGP » Crutchlow spare bike fourth after pole challenge


the Oracle, if everyone was on a Tech3 Mistral in Moto2 you might have a point but they aren't. Bradley was always faster than his team mate of last year Mike Di Meglio at every race and by a large margin. Di Meglio is on a SpeedUp this year, qualified 8th 0.7s off pole. Last year Smith was 5th in qualifying at Jerez 1.4s faster than Di Meglio who was 29th. Bradley then finished 4th, 1min 11s ahead of his team mate. Tech3 know Bradley and know what he can do.

F1 » FIA backs Bahrain to stage GP


As Ted Kravitz said after Bernie's "Stupid question reply" Bernie has said he will be in London on Sunday morning to see his necrophiliac girlfriend run in the London marathon. Unless he's got a Tardis he won't make the race, unless he's only going to be there for 5mins. Although he's usually around all weekend at a GP. So not a stupid question Bernie. He's losing it if he doesn't know where he will be.

MotoGP » A 'porcelain pillow' reward...


Why is he in MotoGP next year? Because you have goldfish memories clearly. He beat his World champ team mate DiMeglio last year into the weeds, where was DiMeglio at the weekend? He qualified 5th, finished 7th (both ahead of Bradley) so if Bradley was on the same bike as DiMeglio using past results he would undoubtedly have been ahead again, front row and podium even. Only Bradley and Simeon are on the self build Tech3 Mistral, stick him on a Suter, FTR, Kalex or SpeedUp and he would be right in there.

F1 » Whiting to look again at Mercedes controversy


No matter what it does it doesn't seem to be doing any good though. 1 point after two races and not even the fastest in qualifying when they are able to use DRS any time they want. Sounds to me like one of those development dead-ends, lots of work and complication for little gain. The Torro Rosso cars were matching Mercedes top speed in practice and they don't have the system. Speed trap data from F1.com in qualifying had Schumacher 1st (312.7kph), but Grosjean 2nd (310.8), with Rosberg (309.9) and Raikonnen 4th (309.8). McLaren's who were on the front row again were 7th and 8th with 309.1 and 308.9.
