MotoGP » Dovizioso 'happy' as Ducati halves the gap

Hard and a bit meaningless I guess to be honest... But I'll speculate a bit more anyway! Had a look at the lap-by-lap analysis and it seems like he was roughly about half a second off the leaders most of the time once he got back in the groove, except when he got held up. Ifs, buts and maybes aside I think that pace should have been good enough to put him in the second group with Espargaro and the factory Ducatis. Either way, good pace from and I'm excited to see what he can do for the rest of the season, would be brilliant to see him up there!

F1 » Promoters will walk away over sound ‘disgrace’

Oh for crying out loud, the 130+ db the new engines have been measured at is hardly quiet! The damaging effects on your ears start at 80 db so it's still plenty loud even for the masochistic hardcore fans. Now there's a big relief for you folks, it will still damage your ears! Yay! Besides, if you're only after the sound why would you even bother going to the actual race anyway? It would be much better to just go to a friday practice, it saves you tons of money you get just as many dbs for it. Yay!

F1 » Promoters will walk away over sound ‘disgrace’

That guy is such a troll. Also, I still cannot believe how out of hand some people's argumentation around this topic is. I get that you like the sound of combustion engines, good for you, I think it's pretty cool too. But when you start hearing stuff like it's the ONLY reason some so-called fans are even interested in F1 at all that sure gets me wondering. F1 has never been the loudest thing, let alone loudest sport, on earth you know. Go watch some drag racing or tractor pulling then, they have plenty big and loud engines to satisfy your masochist dinosaur ears! Frankly, why on earth do you even bother watching a RACING series of you're not even that interested in racing? Wouldn't you just prefer the cars not to race at all but rather stand still and rev their engines to a million rpm? Having them circulate around a track surely must just be an inconvenience to all you sound purists out there.

F1 » Six of the Best: Ugly ducklings

Cheers & nice to see you in the comments Will! I think a list like this puts things in perspective quite a bit - when you look at some of the creations from the 70s for example you realise that today's cars aren't so bad after all. When most people look back in their rose tinted glasses they probably see the early 90s cars - Senna driving the MP4-6 or Mansell driving the FW14 probably... And yeah, they did look great in that period, but before and after that they have not always been lookers. Guess that's why the Brabham stands out aswell, can't say I share your hatred for the colour pink, but being part of what must be one of the better looking fields in F1 ever will not have done it any favours. Also, for a sweet bonus duckling (it never actually raced), check out Cosworth's own F1 prototype!
