MotoGP » Moto2: 2010 champion Elias returns with Aspar

@ Nas Chances are he will not be on a good wage if at all. More than likely he is in a paying ride situation having to bring sponsorship with him to secure the ride and any payment/wages he receives will be in the form of points related payments. His reputation has fallen badly because of the disasterous stints in MGP and with it any ability to command a high wage

WSBK » Alstare to leave World Superbikes

@ ZeR0 Kun Crescent has not had Suzuki support in this years BSB either, infact no team in BSB had official Suzuki support. TAS had support from Suzuki UK and will again in 2012 but it is not factory support just equipment & parts but no race tuning or parts. Crescent will use Yoshimura who are a tuning & race specialist this should in theory at least give them a chance of running at the sharp end.

MotoGP » Will aluminium frame be Ducati's silver bullet?

A silver or magic bullet? NO A step in the right direction? Without doubt The different demands between a race bike & a road bike or even a road derived race bike mean what works for one may be disasterous for the other. In testing the Panegale has been described as sublime but it is not and never will be a knife edge prototype racer where miniscule changes can turn a bike from a race winner to a dog

F1 » Webber calls for leniency from stewards

In fairness I dont think it is the stewards at fault. As the rules stand Massa did break the rule thst states along the lines of if a car is more half a car length inside you when turning a corner you must give at least a cars width clearance. IMHO its not that stewards should be lenient I believe stewards are there to make sure the rules are followed. The people to point a finger at are the people who write rules that effectively make what used to be seen as good racing an offence subject to penalties. Without that in a few years teams will have to submit driving plans outlining who & where they would like to overtake & at what speed before the race starts to avoid penalties

BSB » BSB 2012: EVOlution

@ Mick Sterbs In all honesty I think the reason they are sticking to the 1 bike rule is to make sure that all teams can compete fairly. Teams up & down the grid have been pushed on budgets remember that the top teams set the budgets then the promotions team go about attracting enough sponsors to meet that figure. To prove the point just look back 1 or 2 seasons & probably the biggest team on the grid at that time GSE ceased racing when Airwaves did not renew their title sponsorship & nobody else could be found who was willing to fill the funding gap. Long & short of it is MSV have set out a lower cost path where all teams should be able to have a shot at racing on fairly equal terms. That should make for better racing that draws an increasing audience, an increased audience means sponsors that have left or reduced their involvement may well see the benefit in returning at a higher financial level.

BSB » BSB 2012: EVOlution

@ Mick Sterbs Is it not the case that allowing a second bike would then double the equipment costs thus negating the cost saving measures? I think if anything we are likely to see even more closer racing than before. Look at Gowland on the EVO bike once the team got the bike sorted he was regularly in the top 10 of the field beating many supposedly superior machines. If the rules give parity to all equipment it will give better racing where rider talent is the main deciding factor rather than what team can pay for the most expensive trick performance enhancing electronics

MotoGP » Gresini to race in memory of Marco Simoncelli

@ NL160800 Even if Gresini & Aoyama wanted to race the factory bike they could not. Marco only raced in the colours of Gresini, He was employed directly by & raced a bike provided by HRC & his pit crew were either provided by or employed by HRC. The only difference between Marco's bike & the Repsol ones was the colour it was painted in when it left HRC so Fausto Gresini can not let anyone use the bike. Nice idea though
