RR » Guy Martin to remain with Tyco Suzuki


@ Juno For 2013 there will be up to 10 riders who could win Guy being just one of them. Winning on the day could come down to little more than minute setup changes or in some cases luck. Will people be so quick to criticise the Dunlops or McGuinness if they fail to win? My original comment stands there are many riders capable of winning, probably more now than at any time before and when you have that many capable of winning it makes for good racing. However good the racing and however good the riders only one can win.

RR » Guy Martin to remain with Tyco Suzuki


No matter if he likes it or not Guy's "celebrity" status means having him in a team brings media attention. Media attention brings sponsors. Sponsors bring funds. Funds mean a team can run better machinery. Better machinery means a rider can run at the front bringing more media attention. Guy has the talent to win on the island and anyone who says he does not is fooling themselves. The fact is that we are spoiled at the moment having so many excellent riders capable of winning this means its even harder for one rider to do so unlike some years in the past where you almost knew who would win before racing started.

F1 » Ferrari right to pursue clarification, insists Alonso


Ah yes Fernando Alonso speaks, He as we all know is the paragon of sporting fairness in F1.... Oh hang on... Was it not for Alonso that Piquet was instructed to crash to influence a world championship? Was it not Alonso who when being beaten on equal terms by Hamilton in his rookie year demanded that he be given preferential treatment despite a contract that clearly stated equal treatment & when he did not gain preferential treatment paid to end his contract. Was it not also Alonso who was upset at the side of the grid he was on so pressured Ferrari to break Massa's gearbox seal to incur a penalty so Alonso would move to the side of the grid he wanted. Maybe Alonshole should learn what it is to act fairly & by the rules before he accuses others of not doing so. Remember the old phrase "People in glass houses should not throw stones"

MotoGP » 2013 MotoGP entry list announced, Laverty at PBM


@ Olek135I When Lorenzo won his first championship someone tweeted that he would run the 1 plate at request of or in tribute to someone at Yamaha as a one off but if he won any further he would continue to use 99. Pessimist in me thinks reason he will use his normal number is in no small way connected to his merchandise and marketing arrangements that are all based around 99 in the same way all of Rossi's are around 46.

F1 » Ferrari: Alonso deserved to be champion


One final point. Did Ferrari really deserve to win? Considering that the whole of the rear end of the car that finished the season was a direct copy of the Sauber it could be said that Ferrari really deserve to be excluded from the championship for not designing their own completely as required by the rules that banned customer cars. For those who didn't know when at the start of the season the Ferrari was little more than a dog & being constantly beaten by Sauber, a customer Ferrari team, A deal was agreed between Ferrari & Sauber for Ferrari to duplicate large parts of the rear end of the Sauber "for development appraisal" in exchange for free engines. This was well known caused journalists to give the updated Ferrari that did start running well the nickname of the Ferrauber.

F1 » Ferrari: Alonso deserved to be champion


Forgive me for sounding a little unsurprised at that claim. So Ferrari say Alonso, a Ferrari driver deserved to win? WOW what insight. It could be said that Hamilton deserved to win & maybe he would have if not for breakdowns etc. It could also be said that the only person who really deserved to win was Raikkonen because he was the only driver to finish every race. Facts are that Vettel won & under a points system that Ferrari pushed for, Maybe things would have been different under the old points system but that's in the past. Ferrari should stop whining about it and move forward its not as if they cant try again next year is it?

MotoGP » Preziosi replaced in Ducati shake-up


@ shamarone It is true that Ducati did have a very expensive development program BUT the engine stayed in the same 90 degree configuration. Engine development work did happen but it was based more around power delivery & torque curve than anything else. All the other work revolved around building different frame configurations to try and move weight around. In short the engine made for a long front end and less than ideal weight distribution. Every rider that Ducati had in MGP, Even Stoner in the year he won complained of the same problems that surrounded this issue. The WSB etc victories you list is true but that is EXACTLY what I meant when I said Ducati stayed true to their past. Attitude at Ducati that if that engine configuration worked it would in MGP.

MotoGP » Preziosi replaced in Ducati shake-up


Was it really Preziosi's fault? Consider these points. 1,Ducati were operating on a budget that was tiny compared to Honda & Yamaha, any team in any form of motorsport that is on a fraction of the budget of their competitors would struggle to match them if for the only reason they would struggle to find the finances to develop as fast Question. Did Ducati stand still or did they improve but at a slower pace than Honda & Yamaha so making it appear Ducati stood still. 2, Ducati have long been saddled with an attitude that they must stay true to their past. It has been said by many Ducati would not build a narrow angle engine like Honda's because Ducati by tradition always use this engine angle & format. If Ducati only ever did what they have by tradition they would not build motorcycles only radio valves. With AUDI now behind them & hungry to succeed I think past traditions will disappear in favour of an evolution towards whatever is needed to win, Just look what they have done in L
