Le Mans » Porsche blasts GT balance measures


This is the hardest thing to do in motorsport. Balancing performance is in essence taking away performance from one competitor and giving an advantage to another. In theory and in practice handicapping invalidates true competition. The whole point of motorsport is to see who can create a faster car within the rules. If you keep changing the rules it's not a level playing field and promotes more expense to the participants while yielding sham results. I think it also promotes flexible ethics within the sport which leads to the disrepute of the sport in general.

Le Mans » Toyota's Nakajima hails Le Mans pole


What a contrast between Le Mans cars and F1. The rule-makers have allowed the designers and engineers to decide how they will create a winner and the results are stunning. The top three entrants all go about constructing in different ways and the racing will decide which way is best. And then there is F1... This Le Mans should be awesome and I'd image a bunch of car manufacturers are taking notice.

F1 » Alonso: Ferrari can beat Red Bull


Fernando is correct that anything can happen in F1 but realistically all the Mercedes engined teams plus Red Bull would have to break down for Ferrari to win a race this season. The real tragedy is that Fernando is stuck at Ferrari. With the Mercedes and Red Bull seats spoken for at least through next season Alonzo may never sit in a competitive seat for the remainer of his career. But, anything can happen, I hope he is right!
