F1 » Pirelli concerned by rear lock-ups

Hembery in stating the obvious isn't telling us anything about what Pirelli hopes to do about flat spotting. Are they planning to change the tire construction, will they further restrict the teams in how they inflate the tires or adjust the suspension or the weighting of the contact patches? It would be interesting if Hembery actually shared some technical info about the processes Pirelli use to deal with the problems presented by Formula One. Is that too much to ask?

MotoGP » Moto2: Rabat lap record marred by spill

Tito' off certainly didn't "mar" his accomplishments. Rather it emphasizes how hard he is trying. The Moto2 class is doing a brilliant job of developing and showcasing the best new talents in Grand Prix racing. Some of the Moto2 riders were complaining about the tires saying they didn't heat up fast enough and didn't offer the grip of the standard tires. Imagine how fast Rabat might have gone on those tires!

F1 » Pirelli wary of rate of development

Hembery selling the FIA "strategy group" in addition to Pirelli. My, he is a busy fellow! Like so much of the PR we hear from Pirelli this glosses over the basic problem that the two compound mandate is marketing Bullsh-t and in this challenging season a further complication for teams largely unable to cope with the new technical regulations.

MotoGP » Honda responds to Ducati’s Open decision

A point about the number of engines used. The development costs to create a long-life engine is very large easily being a larger figure than producing twelve "short-life" ( for lack of a better term) engines. This rule for factory teams is just another tool for Honda and Yamaha to limit competition. Show us your long-life engine development budget before you whinge about the costs of more engines. Also, the rules don't say you have to use 12 engines, that's up to the team to decide and if they want to save money they can use fewer. Honda is outraged that their ruling the roost in MotoGP technical regulations is being eroded by Dorna's attempts to level the playing field in MotoGP.
