WRC » Volkswagen boss shakes off impact of emissions scandal

richard: they have known about it since 2007! and did nothing about it!
Do you mean VW? The effected engine, the EA189 2.0 common rail TDi was only introduced in 2009. That is the only engine connected with the software scandal, as aroudn that time emmissions testing required cleaner engines. The EA189 with the software taken off it is still probably cleaner than the pre-2009 cars.

MotoGP » Smith confident consistency will trump lowly qualifying

MLF: Tech 3 in fourth pos, thats pretty good isn't it.
Pol likes Aragon, he was 4th on the grid last year too. Smith was 11th on the grid (10th today). In the race last year Smith was 5th and Pol 6th. And aleix Espargaro was 2nd in the race last year from 10th on the grid. If it's like last year tomorrows race will be great, although I think only from 3rd backwards and the front two I think will get away.

F1 » Ricciardo: Closed cockpits last piece of puzzle

I don't think they need closed cockpits, there's always the risk of turning over and not getting out. Protection is from front impacts such as Massa's and tragically Justin Wilson's. So take your thoughts on closed cockpits whatever they might look like and cut away the sides and the top to leave a front screen, it would need to be an FIA mandated screen that everyone uses to prevent aero tweaking. The driver can get in and out as normal, the protection is in front where it needs to be, rather like sitting in a convertible car and looking through the windscreen.

MotoGP » Redding: It all depends on how the Honda works

DBL: Added to this a Honda that isn't great this year, Marqeuz has been crashing, Pedrosa has been crashing and neither have exactly been winning raced after race. So Honda I would assume have been concentrating on the factory team. If it was 2014 again then Honda people would probably be spending more time at LCR and MVDS whispering settings in their ears.
It's a race winning bike. In the grand scheme of things, there's nothing really wrong with the bike. Sure, Marquez had issues because of his style, but when did Pedrosa crash in a race (*and didn't finish)???? That's right, he hasn't.
Practice crashes as well not just races.
