WSBK » FIM, Dorna to clamp down on ‘towing’?


Well if it's the "waiting around" that's the problem ,with riders going very slowly on-track that's one thing but if it's just a question of drafting some one, well that's racing, seeking an advantage over your competitor. How the heck are slower guys and rookies ever going to go faster and even learn a thing or two? The last thing MotoGP needs are more rules. If this is just some prima donnas complaining that other racers might learn thier riding secrets by following them I say cowboy up and race you whingers!

MotoGP » Stefan Bradl: Honda, Ducati, Aprilia - or Moto2?


Perhaps his results at LCR say more about their engineering staff than about Bradl? You can't get better equipment than a factory spec Honda so where does he go? Maybe trade seats with Batista and hope for a more simpatico relationship with the race engineers there. Otherwise I agree with the opinion that he should try for Suzuki. It's a gamble but if they produce a good bike and are willing to invest in MotoGP then he will be gold.

F1 » Pirelli ready for 18-inch tyres in 2016


I've posted this before but it bares repeating: With the increase in unsprung weight and an aspect ratio which is detrimental to the sidewall flexing which aids road compliance and traction the larger wheel/tire package's only advantage is increased room for larger brakes. This is useful in endurance racing but not F1. Road cars have large wheels for marketing reasons concerning style and Pirelli wants to follow road car practice now? More than a bit backwards. It will give the suspension engineers headaches for sure as the present tires form most of the cars suspension. Heavier, less compliant and less resilient the new Pirelli's are like most things in F1, more about the show than the go!

F1 » Pirelli releases 18-inch concept image


With the increase in unsprung weight and an aspect ratio which is detrimental to the sidewall flexing which aids road compliance and traction the larger wheel/tire package's only advantage is increased room for larger brakes. This is useful in endurance racing but not F1. Road cars have large wheels for marketing reasons concerning style and Pirelli wants to follow road car practice now? More than a bit backwards.

Heavier, less compliant and less resilient the new Pirelli's are like most things in F1, more about the show than the go! Funny how Pirelli is putting on the glam offensive while backpedaling about how they will only do the tires if the teams want them to. Who told them to build the 18 inch tires and test them at Silverstone, I'd like to know?
