F1 » Whitmarsh: McLaren 'working tirelessly' on MP4-28


I agree with the comments about playing down chances. The last thing anyone wants to do is say they are going to win, because if they don't they look silly. It's all about managing expectations, say you are not going to win, then win it's a big confidence boost. Same with all teams. Really they do have to drop the corporate "trying to understand the car" comments though as that just makes them sound stupid, you want to really understand the car, then ask your employees who designed it I'm sure they can tell you. That's what it sounds like to me, of course it's all about how it works on track, a better way of saying it would be "we are still trying to find the sweet spot in the setup, it's there and when we get it we'll know where we can go with development and setup changes".

F1 » Caterham 'let Kovalainen down'


No Kovalainen let Kovalainen down, the arrogance of "I'm not going to chase any sponsorship because I'm not a pay driver". He should have a word with Alonso and ask him how much sponsorship money he brings to Ferrari. Then with hindsight and along with the current financial climate decided that attitude was probably the wrong one to take.

F1 » McLaren unveil new MP4-28 for 2013


If last years car was aerodynamically efficient and they can't make huge aero changes because of rules then it will look the same, the big difference will be under the skin with systems being redesigned, repackaged and placed differently. What did people expect six wheels, batman wings and a enclosed cockpit?

F1 » No change at Pirelli


And by putting in place proper rules that mean no special tyres are made favouring one team supplied and budget caps/tyre compound limits. Probably my last post on here if that bloody Freesat advert takes over my screen again. Crash - Adverts with audio is a big mistake.

F1 » BBC names new F1 presenter, live races


ALDO2654 you do realise Murdoch's News Corp only owes 39.14% of BSkyB and was formed by Merging Sky and BSB. Jeremy Darroch and Nicholas Ferguson (not related to the Murdochs) is the current man in charge. There are many others who own the broadcaster and the UK government blocked News Corps full take over in 2011. The other shareholders of the remaining 61% are Asset and Fund management companies the types that the great unwashed will accuse of being greedy but are actually the people who make money for us all by investing our pensions for us.

RR » Gearlink Kawasaki may focus solely on Seeley


Ben Wilson doesn't do the NW200 or any road racing so probably not. Edited for below comment, read the article. This is about the NW200 it has nothing to do with the British Supersport Championship that Wilson competes in. Wilson doesn't race the NW200 so why would they back him. This is about Seeley who races the NW200 and the possibility of another rider (not Wilson) most likely Daniel Cooper who raced for them at the NW200 last year not being supported, so it would be a 1 rider NW200 team.
