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!

F1 » Pirelli unhappy over testing proposal

The Formula One Strategy Group seem to think that the answer to ever issue is to do less. They are fast becoming the dictators on all issues and clearly their strategy is to promote their own team agendas. This demonstrates the folly of letting the boffins control the regulatory aspects of F1. Rememnber that it was the teams that asked for fast degrading tires and the two compound per race stupidity all so that they could continue to develope the formula to be aerodynamically dominated. Left to their own means F1 will become a virtual sport where the cars show up on Sunday morning, have a ten minute qualifying and then race for half an hour to fit into a TV schedule that is full of real sports.

F1 » Pirelli unhappy over testing proposal

I suspect the real strategy behind most of the dictates of the F1 Strategy Group is the promotion of client cars in F1. They think they can force-feed this concept to the small teams and the FIA. Mr. Hembery is correct in what he says and Pirelli should stand up where the weak FIA won't and demand an end to multipal compounds and issue one spec tire for the season. Then let the aerodynamics engineers play their games!
