F1 » FIA to study closed-cockpit concepts

LaughingGas: But this keeps happening. Felipe Massa was dead lucky not to have the same happen to him. If they want to improve driver safety against flying debris there's not much choice.
Keeps happening is a bit of an exaggeration. Twice in how many races? Racing is dangerous. Poo happens. At PI and the IOM there are regularly bird strikes and the like. It happens. Its just the way it is. You can not remove all risk and calling for action is nothing more than a knee jerk reaction. Don't like it? Don't go racing.

F1 » FIA to study closed-cockpit concepts

grantrd: For every action that takes place on modern day earth, there is a totally overblown knee jerk reaction to counter it...... It was a freak accident, and as terrible as it was it's part of motorsport..... Motorpsort is dangerous and the people who compete in motorsport know this better than anyone and they know that is part of the appeal of motorsport.......
And not just part of the appeal for the fans. They themselves wouldn't do it if it wasn't dangerous. (not that any of them want to die) Remove the danger remove the challenge. There is already a 100% safe racing and millions of people partake in it. You can find it on any xbox or playstation because that's what racing without any danger is. Though I've heard rsi of your thumb hurts like hell.

mytyresaregoingoff: We all want improved safety and closed cockpits will improve it in one direction but it must not be at the expense of safety elsewhere. So how you deal with reduced visibility due to dirt/ rain/ glare etc. and how you ensure that it will not reduce escape time from a car (especially one that is upside down or against a barrier. These are issues that need addressing. I'm sure better minds than mine will deal with it.
Simple. Jetfighter style ejector seats.

MotoGP » Smith: Obviously I’m second in line

DamZen1: few stats last year was the first time since 2007 that the factory backed M1 Tech3 wasn't put on the podium, looking to be the same this year. this is the first time that the tech3 owned M1 is heading the factory backed M1 in the championship this year is the first time the Tech3 owned M1 has been put on the podium well done Brad and not so well done Pol
You missed a bit.. ..Last year Pol Espargaro in his rookie year outpaced and finished ahead of his team mate Bradley Smith in the championship. On that basis you can't start screaming merry hell just because you happened to string a couple of half decent results together in the last couple of months. It doesn't wipe the slate clean and you can't expect the team to ignore the previous two seasons.
Yes but Pol was on a factory bike and the contract was renewed last year with that taken in account already. With the changes I think and hope he will get another renew

MotoGP » Suzuka: Espargaro, Smith, Nakasuga claim 8 Hours glory

Guna4699: Well done Nakasuga and tech 3 boys... Probably Yamaha asked for little too much when they asked their factory riders to compete while satellite riders were just enough to get the job done... Great bike... #WeR1...
Just enough? Seriously? Just? Did you watch a different race? The only thing that put those lads on the back foot was the start. And they weren't even on the bike for that.

MotoGP » Redding switching emphasis to electronics

It's so easy to loose sight of the bigger picture when the results don't come as we expect. Personally I hope he gets another season on the bike for the reasons I will list below. 1 the 2015 RCV has problems. All Honda riders admit this & the open bike is nothing like the full spec HRC. Basically last seasons experience means zip this year. 2 It's a new team with no prior experience at this level or with this bike & the MotoGP learning curve is huge. 3 Scott has no team mate. He has no data to compare, he has no help with setup and no one to bounce ideas off. The last two points alone should be enough to keep his ride. I mean what do the team want? A new rider? So they can start all over again next season? The smart move is to stick with Scott. If it doesn't work you can always part company during or at the end of next season.
