MotoGP » Smith: Motorcycling should learn from F1

he has a point there, but in reality not as easy as it seems. by design alone, it is already a huge challenge. cars are much more easier to design and tinker around. you can put any suitable engine into the chassis to alter the performance. any handing issues caused by the engine, the chassis can easily take care of it. not so with bikes. virtually the bike has to be build as a single unit (or the chassis is built around the engine), and the engine itself plays a huge part in the handling. any handling issue caused by the engine cannot be taken care by the chassis. just look at aprilia cube - the engine caused so much handling problems with its violent power delivery. can the chassis take care of it despite all the tweaks? i don't think so... suzuki is well known for its sweet handling chassis, let down by their own engine. should the violent ducati engine is put inside suzuki chassis, can it become a front runner? i don't think so... a lot has to be done, for sure.

Le Mans » Rockenfeller: I owe Audi my life

the problem is every driver have their preferred racing line and preferred way on how to pass the backmarkers. there is no clear-cut rule about this. should anyone can recall, Gilles Villeneuve died because of almost similar incident. Joechen Mass already commit to the right in order to let Villeneuve overtake at the left, only to find Villeneuve already committed to the right as well. the rest is history. looking at the incident, it could be either right is Villeneuve's preferred racing line or Villeneuve himself did not expect Mass to pull aside. so in this Audi case, there's no way we can determine who is at fault.
