F1 » Montezemolo: Alonso ‘the best driver in the world’

There wasn't anything cryptic about Fernanado's statement. He was stating what is the current environment in Ferrari and how he felt about the praise he had received from outside the team. It's very obvious to anyone with any knowledge of F1 that the reason behind Alonso's lack of championships from 2008 to the present is the lack of a competitive car. The fact is that Formula One championships are won in at least a competitive car and more often than not a superior car, that's the nature of Formula One.

MotoGP » Michelin named new MotoGP Tyre Supplier

Very interesting to see what economic realities have done to change Michelin's philosophy on racing. The changing landscape of commercially dominated racing has left this mighty bastion of open competition with no place to play. I imagine Michelin will prove more than competent at what has become a branding/R&D exercise but a word to the wise, mind the PR!

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.
