F1 » Valsecchi: I would sign right now

You know, it's always been this way. Read the history of any top racing series, and of many of the guys, even Niki Lauda. No money, no ride. Only super undeniable, incomparable talent could possibly get you a ride without money. (Senna comes to mind. How did he get his test with Williams and others back in '84, '85?? -- but he brought some sponsorship too, and had an outstanding record in minor series.) It's connections, connections, connections, too. So you've got to be great already, plus smart and have a good plan and good people promoting you. Talent, unfortunately, has never been enough all on its own.

F1 » Whiting impressed with Circuit of the Americas

Hey Lofty, et al, why aren't you bitching about the name Road America?? Probably never heard of it, I guess. By the way, its you "foreigners" that insist on calling the USA "America" - did you notice that?? Finally, thanks to poster Uncle Sam for registering his name as should be required for every poster, unlike these anonymous trolls that mostly spew crap.

F1 » Whiting impressed with Circuit of the Americas

Wow Lofty.... got some inferiority complex, or what? Canada's a great place, and has some good race tracks and race tradition. Why do you need to jump on the first opportunity to slam the US or some US company's name for a new circuit. Your effort to make some kind of a point says more about you than anything else. Cheer up, there'll always be good racing in Canada, and we people from the US won't forget. The Circuit of the Americas will not harm you. If you are really a fan, you might want to go there someday. I'm betting you will at least watch on TV. But if it sets your teeth on edge, just shut it off and spare us your frustrations.

MotoGP » Honda: Only a setback can stop Lorenzo

Bad luck, blah blah blah...... I think maybe Pedrosa's bad luck was Honda's "bad execution" all around. In that incident where his front brake locked a couple of years ago, and he was flung onto the track and basically out of the season, wasn't that also a Honda mechanical foul-up? I guess it does happen elsewhere, too -- see some of Spies' problems this year at Yamaha. Poor Pedrosa, though -- just when he really seems to get the bit in his teeth......

F1 » Webber: F1 is not a finishing school

Commodore and couch potato -- If the shoe doesn't fit, don't wear it, and maybe I'm preaching to the choir. But if you are not in the choir, the shoe fits, so wear it. Mine was a comment, an observation, an opinion (I think that is still legal here), and not directed specifically at you, but if you think it is, then wear it like a collar, buddy.
