MotoGP » Scope for improvement excites Smith

Great would be overstating it I think, but he definitely wasn't (and isn't) as bad as many people would have it. Solid but unspectacular, maybe? Either way, this year is the one that counts, this is his chance to shine and if he doesn't take it then I suspect Tech 3 won't keep him around. There really is no shortage of talent in the lower classes right now... Anyway, will be very interesting to see how he does!

F1 » Chilton confirms Marussia return

I don't think it's such a bad thing to be honest. He's shown to be steady if unspectacular, and this at least gives the team continuity. He's definitely in the running for weakest driver on the grid but he's clearly no Alex Yoong or Yuji Ide. Plus what he did deliver for the team last year was tons of data, and that's worth a lot to a team with limited tunnel & simulator resources. I reckon if he keeps finishing and stays close to his highly rated teammate in terms of pace he'll have done as decent a job as most other available drivers for that particular seat.

F1 » Chilton confirms Marussia return

Sophisticated, you've answered your own question. Everyone has an agenda, and I think it's about wanting to find the best possible driver that fits in with that agenda. What I find odd though is that there is so much emphasis on personal sponsoring these days, it's almost as if every team's sponsors are connected to the drivers. From the midfield and down you hardly see any major team sponsors at all these days, and that has to be a concern because that's where the long term stability lies for the teams. Having sponsors connected to the drivers means they have to scramble to bring someone new in every time they change or lose a driver. If you look at F1 in the past, you had some of the most well-known global brands on the cars, now not so much... If you look at Indycar for example, you'll probably recognise more famous brands on the cars than in F1. Why is that? And about the rich man's sport comments, it's nothing new as has been pointed out, it's actually been much worse in the ear
