F1 » Marko hints at Ricciardo’s Red Bull future

@ James Montgomery It was always known that Red Bull, who Ricciardo is contracted to, Had struck the deal with HRT to pay for him to be in the car. May sound pessimistic to some but in these days of restricted testing paying for a driver to get time in another team's car is a cost effective way to get them experience in a car & therefore evaluate them as a possible future driver.

WSBK » Kawasaki to replace PBM from 2012?

PS It is widely known that the head people at Kawasaki are highly embarrased at being associated with PBM at the moment after the recent discovery of drugs, weapons & smuggled cigarettes in PBM trucks. Remember that in Japanese culture respect & dignity are prised above all else. Considering that will PBM continue as official factory team irrespective of results

WSBK » Kawasaki to replace PBM from 2012?

@ told you so There is NO support from Suzuki anymore. They had a contract with Alstare to give full factory support for at least the whole of 2010 with an option of extending into 2011 but Suzuki broke that and pulled out all factory support by the 3rd round of 2010. That is why Batta had to release Leon from his contract as well as losing the majority of his sponsors because on all sides there were factory supported conditions in contracts so when Suzuki pulled out contract termination clauses from sponsors kicked in. For the majority of last season the remaining sponsorship money that Batta got did not even cover the running costs of the team never mind riders salaries. If reports in Italian & German press are true Batta will have 2 full factory supported bikes next year, either Suzuki (Unlikely), kawasaki or Aprilia and he has already said that as soon as he can officially confirm this Leon Haslam (On a 1 year contract with BMW) will be the top priority

F1 » Ecclestone: Scandal likely dashed News Corp F1 bid

Sponsors in F1 want their names seen by as many as possible so will always want to be where the biggest audience is. People who watch on free to air TV still spend large amounts of money elsewhere. If you were Phillip Morris considering extending sponsorship of Ferrari would you pay huge amounts for that if your audience was tiny just because the commercial rights holder chose to go with who paid them more? The amounts sponsors are willing to pay is based on the potential audience, smaller audience smaller payments etc. For one I agree with Bernie on this F1 should stay free to air
