F1 » Red Bull signs Nissan gamer Mardenborough


I love this concept. Kids who haven't been in a position to start motor racing at an early age, or any age, being given a chance to turn their incredible gaming minds to real racing. I play poker, and a significant number of the best players in the world come from the competitive gaming world. And it's no joke. Thousands and thousands compete for decent paydays, and those at the top are almost supernaturally intelligent. I still remember being whooped in no more than 5 minutes by a 10 year old in a 1 on 1 online strategy game (cant remember which one) years ago. And he was just one random kid.

F1 » Ecclestone ready to appear in ‘amusing’ bribery trial


First of all, it's a civil case. IE monetary compensation, NOT jail time. In this case, Bernie will not end up in jail regardless of the verdict. And secondly, in situations like this he chooses his words very carefully, and most of all, deliberately. He's easily the wiliest old ****** I've seen. I highly doubt he's going to trip himself up. Personally I think he's just beginning to make his opponent wonder whether to back down.

MotoGP » Maverick Vinales signs Moto3, Moto2 deal


"It's the same as the case of Terol - he wastes one year" Not even close to the same case. Nico Terol spent 8 years in 125cc!, finally winning the WC at 23. Vinales is still just 17, and has already proven himself a bigger standout in a MUCH shorter time than Terol. He has plenty of time, and without the mistakes he will probably be WC next year. IMO, Terol is more a case of a good rider, on the best bike, eventually winning due to years and years of experience compared to his less experienced rivals. Especially after basically all the riders that really took it to him in 2010 moved to Moto2 in 2011. I'm not say Terol isn't a great rider, but I'm not surprised he hasn't shone in Moto2. It took him a good 5-6 years to even vaguely stand out in 125's.

MotoGP » Aragon MotoGP test times - Tuesday


pcxmac - Finally, someone who actually reads the article. Bradl tested a FACTORY honda. And there is no reason to handicap Bradl in test. So Rea and Bradls times can in fact be compared. So 1 second behind Bradl isn't earth shattering, but it's a solid job given Reas experience. And i'm no particular fan of any rider btw, just in case u think I have a hard on for Rea. I have always rated him though. Only time will tell though if he's got the right stuff for MotoGP. Provided he does in fact get a ride next year. Seriously, some of you need to learn to actually read and take in the words written in articles. It's like you skim through them in 3 seconds cos you cant wait to post some negative rubbish.

WRC » Atkinson secures MINI role


To those who seem to think Atko is somehow paying for his drive, think again. I'm aussie, and have followed Chris's path closely since Subaru left, and the overwhelming hurdle he's been trying to overcome in getting back to the WRC has been money. Other than V8 Supercars, Australian companies do basically jack squat in sponsoring drivers. If he was money backed, he wouldn't have been out for 2 years. Especially considering he beat Petter in their final year together. I know some of u want Meeke in, and I understand. But sponsorship money isn't what got Chris this drive.

F1 » Best of Red Bull demos


These video posts rarely get comments, and red bull seem to take more than their fair share of flack..... but this shows that F1 teams do try to reach out a lot more than some people think. Seeing this makes me want to check out some of the more outrageous demos like the one in Texas, exiting from an old barn onto a good ole country dirt road and onto the yet unpaved CotA. Good work RBR.

F1 » Full extent of de Villota injuries revealed


"the loss of an eye is not the end of her racing career" Sadly, it is. It's not so much about 20/20 vision (which regards what a person can see at 20 feet), but rather depth perception. The human brain requires both eyes in order to determine depth. And racing of any sort, let alone F1, absolutely requires depth perception. On the positive side, she's alive. It may seem small comfort to a racer, but they're strong people. And I believe she will eventually come to terms with it. Here's hoping the prognosis doesn't get worse.

MotoGP » Tyre choice 'cost Lorenzo Spanish MotoGP victory'


@dacron Agreed. Neither rider even wants to leave their current team. Stoner has stated many times his pleasure at riding in the team his hero Doohan did, and that it was always a dream of his. I also recall a recent comment from Lorenzo stating he wants to end his career at Yamaha. Not to mention the points I made earlier. And for the fans sake, having Lorenzo and Stoner at different, rival teams adds much more to the show. Provided those teams are competitive with each other. Which brings us to Ducati. I personally can't stand Rossi, but my overriding reason for watching motorsport (and I watch A LOT of different forms of motorsport) is for the racing, not the pilots. I of course have my favs, but for the sake of racing I REALLY REALLY want Ducati to climb out of this slump and be competitive. I'm sure Casey, Dani, Jorge etc want to be racing them, not forgetting them.

MotoGP » Tyre choice 'cost Lorenzo Spanish MotoGP victory'


"Many Yamaha team members already know Stoner well and with Spies making a mockery of the factory machine, look out for the two top riders in the same team for 2013!" @Head2Head. It seems logical to assume that teams would love and benefit from having both of the current top riders in their squad, but in reality it rarely works out well. The best combination for success is almost always having 1 rider capable of winning the WC, and a another fast (though not quite as fast) rider capable of taking substantial and valuable points to aid in winning the constructors title. Throughout history, there's a myriad of examples of what can go wrong when you have 2 proven world beaters in the same team. Having said that, I agree it would be hard to turn Casey/Jorge away if they came knocking at the door of Yamaha/Honda.
