MotoGP » Marquez: Stoner Ducati speculation 'interesting'

I've admired Stoner as a racer for many years but I must admit that I have questions about his testing contributions. Both in 2007 and 2012 he was new to the teams and extracted the most from the machines he was given. But at Ducati as time went on the bikes got worst and worst and soon no one but Casey could be competitive on them. The same with Honda and we have seen how poor this year's bike has been, a machine which Casey tested on I believe. Also, it's a bit strange that Honda would let an ace development riders contract lapse, isn't it? Stoner has breathtaking abilities on a race bike, I'm just not sure they extend to development.

F1 » Vettel: Politics stopping progress and fans are losing out

Vettel is correct about the passing over the last 20 years but to re-introduce the aero technology that was used during that same period and then think there will be a different outcome is crazy. By decreasing downforce while increasing tire mechanical traction and allowing larger brakes the cars will be faster on the straights and slower in the turns, where a better driver can make the difference.They won't look slower though because the cars will drift and slide around more. Run-off areas at the ends of straights will get deeper but also narrower and the run-offs in corners will be safe as they are now for a long while. If you want even more passing outlaw carbon brakes which will increase the braking time and distance, another opportunity for the superior driver.

F1 » Mercedes hints it will discuss engine price ‘compromise’

"There might be a team that wants to end Mercedes dominance." Wake up Toto, that is what every team wants! Things are changing all the time in F1 and you have to adjust. When the hybrid rules were vote in the FIA and Ecclestone didn't know that the engine manufacturers would fund all their R&D on their customer teams backs. So, adjustments need to be made.

F1 » Opinion divided on commercial F1 engine

Kaltenhorn's 1st objections is suspect as even now it is impossible to balance the factory power units with the customer power units. The only scenario where there would be a crisis is if the comm. engine outperforms the manufacturers engines. All bloody hell will break loss if that happens! The compromise will be for the manufacturers winning everything (as normal) and the independent teams getting the chance to continue racing with an engine which is affordable for them. As for the "greening" of the series? I don't see anyone at CVC or the teams (besides the advantaged Mercedes team) who gives a rat's ahole about it!
