F1 » Sir Jack Brabham dies aged 88


A true legend in Grand Prix racing Jack Brabham had his hand in some of the greatest moments in Formula One's history. A brilliant racer and constructor he will long be remembered. I saw him race in 1966 and it was inspirational to the young lad I was at the time. Condolences to his family and fairwell to Black Jack Brabham.

MotoGP » Espargaro: Open ECU means podium sliding away


@ BMWR1200GSA I like your idea about a manufacturer's championship like the Constructor's championship in F1. Let's add to that a ban on factory teams. Manufacturers sell (not lease) chassis and engines to independent teams that race for the Rider's championship. The sanctioning body would create and enforce the tech and sporting rules and ensure transparency in manufacturer's dealings with teams. This would allow manufacturers to develop new technology only at the rate that teams could afford to purchase and sponsors would support team budgets not manufacturers which would build up a healthy grid of entrants. A strong sanctioning body that has marketing talents would have a terrific product to offer to media further enhancing the financial base of the series. Perhaps this would lead to purer competition as well.

F1 » Pirelli: Perez excuse ‘pathetic’


Hembrey is correct in that the Circuit de Catalunya's layout leads to boring races for aero-dominated racers. As a result of the lessening of aero downforce this year the race may not be so boring. As we see in practice there is more time difference between cars which means more passing will be necessary and easier. Calling Perez's criticism pathetic seems to be a rather emotional response. Hembrey must be feeling pressure from some source or sources?

F1 » Alonso agrees tyres too conservative


Fair criticism on Fernando's part but every race is a sort of crap shoot this season with the formula so changed and Pirelli still smarting from their pR disaster last year. Remember that Barelona was a four stopper last season and the goal as Pirelli sees it is two to three stops. I'd think harder tires are an erroe on the safe side and if it results in less marbles the passing will be better.

F1 » Ferrari: Raikkonen will come good


I agree with Firestorm, the technical culture at Ferrari isn't matching Red Bull or Mercedes. Allison must overcome Fry's conservative approach and push the design and engineering hard. It's just not enough to say the team is giving 100%. The question should be 100% of what. There needs to be new ideas and better development and it has to happen NOW! F1 is at least 80% the car and recent history shows us that not even a superman like Alonso can overcome a poorly conceived and developed car. This is the challenge for Ferrari, to create technical brilliance from the present mediocrity.
