F1 » Williams: Brawn would be a great addition

@ roadburner Maldonado will not be going to Lotus because the new backers have already told Boulier to sign Nico Hulkenberg. For Maldonado it is either stay at Williams or find another team. As far as his rumoured £30 million funding is concerned thats not guaranteed past this season because it part comes from Venezuelan government to promote their racers & they have already said they will no longer do so after this season. The rest is from PVDSA who are also state owned and will be scaling back.

WSBK » Guintoli: I haven't been at 100 per cent...

On the right bike, which the Aprilia currently is, and free from injury I honestly believe Guinters can be a serious credible championship contender. You have to admit finishing third in standings despite a visible drop off of form after his shoulder injury is no mean feat. The only variable is will the Aprilia continue to be as good as it has been since it started racing without Gigi Dall’Igna? Since his departure teams that were supposedly in talks to run Aprilia bikes next year have stopped talking to Aprilia & in MotoGP all teams that run their ART this season except PBM who have not yet revealed what they are doing have signed to use other bikes.

BSB » PBM confirms BSB plans for 2014

No riders confirmed yet? maybe the reporters should try watching BSB coverage then because Paul Bird was quite clear when interviewed in saying next year will be Shaky + another front running rider who he could not announce yet because they are currently riding for another manufacturer. It has already been rumoured that this other rider could be Tommy Bridewell especially after Shaun Muir ( Milwaukee Yamaha ) said he wanted to sign him for next year but he had to be quick because another top team was offering him a ride.

MotoGP » POLL: Should Marc Marquez be penalised?

Normally I would have said no penalty however Alex Lowes in BSB was penalised a race win for a manouvre that was no better or worse than the one that Marquez pulled on Pedrosa that lead to him crashing out. Rules across motorsport should be implemented equally or they may as well not be there so if the penalty against Lowes is correct & legal Marquez should also receive a penalty, If however Marquez is not penalised the penalty against Lowes must be reversed.

WSBK » Rea breaks femur, says lack of flags ‘unbelievable’

This is not the first time the training & actions of non UK marshals have been called into question. Something needs to happen & soon! The UK has probably the best marshals both Racesafe for bikes & MSA for the rest in the world. There is no reason other than ignorance or indifference to prevent the rest of the world raising their standards to the ones used in the UK. We are talking racer & crowd safety for this we should accept nothing less than the best because when the worst happens the lives of the racers & crowd rest in the hands of marshals.

MotoGP » 'Back to square one' for Ben Spies

Sorry to have to say this but you begin to think that with the amount of really good riders currently looking for next years rides sooner or later Pramac will soon decide to cut their losses and release Ben from his contract. Don't forget that its only a little over a year ago that Scott Redding tested the Desmo and put in lap times that were faster than any of this years 4 riders have managed since.

MotoGP » 2014 MotoGP ECU rules updated

Only time will tell if this leads to fuller grids with better racing. HOWEVER Could I just point your memories back a few years to when the last time this kind of arrangement was allowed by the rules. Remember the Roberts KRV ( Not the V3 that they used when the rules banned leased engines). Honda RSV5 990 engines in a Roberts designed & built chassis and Roberts electronics. Not only were these bikes ***** fast but they often won races beating the factory Repsol bikes in the process. Done right these new rules could be amazing but lets be honest anything is better than the dwindling grids we had before the introduction of CRT

MotoGP » 2014 MotoGP ECU rules updated

@ Nate44 Essentially that is what the factories will be allowed to do & indeed Ducati has already confirmed that they are going to do. In the case of Yamaha they have already confirmed they will be supplying Forward with complete 2014 machines, Forward will however be running the spec ECU so will not be a "factory" team. The only difference is that any team running these bikes will have to do so using the spec ECU as supplied sealed by DORNA and will not be allowed to produce their own software for it like the factory teams can. These teams can then take advantage If however for example team X buys the 2013 GP13 Ducati and puts its own software on the ECU they will be classified as a team X factory status and will have to run the reduced fuel amount & lower engine units available.
