F1 » Webber calls for DRS change

I think the DRS use should be allowed at any time or outlawed entirely, the zones are the only artificial part of it. Without the zones it's just a variable wing. Next year the changes to engine mapping should provide enough change to keep things interesting. It's probably not the best time to introduce more changes.

F1 » Ecclestone casts doubt on Austin

I find it difficult to believe that as much leeway was given to India that we are already talking about a race that is scheduled to happen a year from now not being ready. I think Bernie is applying pressure for some kind of deal of concession from the track. Bernie is right, America doesn't need F1. There are great races every weekend, even if you don't count NASCAR, there is plenty of racing entertainment. Bernie is up to something. It would be great to see the F1 Circus come to America a couple of times a year. It would be good for open wheel racing in the Americas.

F1 » F1 2011 POLL: Were the stewards right to penalise Massa?

I have to say if the positions were reversed Hamilton would definitely have gotten a drive through. I think Lewis was foolish to try that pass but he appeared to have the line. The Stewards have done a terrible job of handing out penalties this year lots on incidents ignored and others hammered. They need to be evaluating safety not personalities. Also have to say that Hamilton's name comes up way to often in these discussions. I'm not sure if that means he's unsafe or he's just trying harder. To the Massa haters, I'm not sure where that comes from unless it's just about him and Lewis. Seems like he's finally getting his competitive edge back.

F1 » Massa critical of kerbs after crash

While I agree that Massa was a little far off the track, there should not be any obstacle on or immediately adjacent to the track that could cause that kind of damage to a car. As we all know not every corner goes as planned (not speaking of Massa here) and someone could easily swerve into that kerb and damage his car instead of driving on through. In a race situation Massa could easily have taken out one or more cars because of the incident. It creates an unsafe situation. Isn't this the same place where two weeks ago the cry was that Indy should scrap all the oval races because of safety issues? Not the same degree, but the point remains.

F1 » Webber: IndyCar situation 'not right'

@ Turkey I do get out when the orderlies let me. I know some aerospace engineers who build space craft for a living. It doesn't make me qualified to comment on the relative merits of space shuttle operation vs. Virgin Galactic's Space program. Webber's a good guy and his comments are, I'm sure, an emotional response to the loss of a friend in a tragic accident. It still doesn't mean he understands what happened or what the safety level of Indy car racing program is. Mansell and Blundell are qualified to comment but, this is about Webber's comments,now isn't it.

F1 » Webber: IndyCar situation 'not right'

WOW, I think Mark Webber is a pretty smart guy and a great driver but, He's never even sat in an Indy car and is therefore not qualified to offer opinions on the relative merits of F1 vs. Indy cars. I havn't seen any comments yet from any of the few guys who have experience in both series. Until I do I think most of us are speaking out of turn. Not everything in the U.S. is oval based. Sports car racing is alive and well here and growing all the time, exhibit the Rolex/Grand Am Series.

F1 » F1 2011 POLL: Should Schumacher have received a penalty?

Schumi was driving a hell of a race and doing a great job of keeping Hamilton behind him. Hamilton had the superior car as evidenced by the way he left Shumi behind once he did get by. That double swerve Shumacher used was against the rules as currently practiced. If Hamilton had made that move he would have been serving a drive thru penalty. I don't have a particular fondness for either driver, but I do appreciate equal enforcement of the sporting regulations.

MotoGP » Rossi: I was a little crazy…

I'm not sure you can compare last years Stoner with this years Rossi. Didn't Stoner spend most of last year struggling with his illness? Before he was diagnosed, if he did look lazy (not my observation) it was because he didn't have the stamina to push the bike to the front. The bike that Vale has was developed for Stoner. Th duc has problems, with Vale and Haden, two world champions riding the Ducs and not being competitive there has to be something wrong there. I'd love to see Stoner on his Honda and Vale on the Yamaha head to head, It's not going to happen but, it's the only way you could compare the two riders.

F1 » Hamilton urged to learn from team-mate

While I'm not a fan of Lewis,I must say he is one of the most talented drivers out there. The driver he most reminds me of is Mario Andretti. Going back a ways for most of you I know but he had that same it's my line and if your in the way were going to have a problem attitude, Both are/were blindingly fast in fact that may be the problem, Lewis' reflexes are so quick he sees and makes moves that no one else can react accordingly. Those of you who think that the retired F1 champions are has beens and have no understanding of current F1 are living in your own private world. Those guys are cut from the same stuff as the current crop of drivers or vice versa. Great drivers are are great drivers! The current state of technology of the car doesn't make any difference. A Great driver will find it's limits and find out how to add 5% to that limit. They may get older and retire but the talent and wisdom remain .
