WSBK » Upbeat Brookes draws BMW Yamaha comparisons

Early last year the results on the Yam were poor & only improved after Yamaha had all their Moto GP riders hammering the R1 to get it competitive for the Suzuka 8 hour race ( Brookes never said this though in interviews he just said that he had worked on settings ) I think his only hope lies with the team developing it internally because BMW themselves are not developing the bike & factory support is limited to parts & electronic tweaks that help develop it as a road bike.

F1 » Marko wants Renault to prioritise Red Bull over own team

Of course Renault are going to give a team that wanted to ditch Renault altogether but ended up negotiating a deal where they purchase unbranded engines and deal with all development themselves while putting a sponsors name on them priority.... Have a reality break Helmut you are out of the Renault development loop now you just buy engines and look after them yourself.

F1 » Marko wants Renault to prioritise Red Bull over own team

LaughingGas: Is he drunk?? Why would Renault do that when they have their own team??
well, i for one believe that helmut is correct. redbull have a far better chance of providing results. lotus renault have a poor car and renault have dilly dallied with their engine over the last few years yet rbr have performed and provided them with championships. you will probably find that rbr will have around double the wcc points of renault this year. remember honda? in the 60s they tried to produce their own car which had the most powerful engine and it was a failure, but then surtees put the engine in a lola chassis, and suddenly they were able to get results.
There is the fact that as per the contract that RB negotiated with Renault after initially terminating engine supply is a strictly purchase deal. They get no Renault factory support after choosing to literally buy the Renault engines without any branding or support and have

MotoGP » Repsol slams Rossi for ‘unacceptable conduct’

Yet strangely when Marquez & Pedrosa were in an almost identical situation where Marquez "accidental flick" took Pedrosa out and if memory serves me right gave Dani a broken collarbone Repsol who sponsor the team that they both ride for said nothing. Seems to me its Repsol being two faced with something being fine if its by their own rider but tantamount to attempted murder if its their rider on the receiving end. Even race control have said that proof shows Marquez deliberately slowed down to interfere with Rossi's pace and leaned on his leg intentionally but it was not against any written rule so they could not penalise him or they would have.

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.
