MotoGP » Pedrosa salvages season with Valencia victory.


I'm going out on a limb to say that both Pedrosa and Dovizioso will be racing for their jobs next season. Pedrosa is good for 2, perhaps 3 wins per season. It's no mean feat to win even 1 MotoGP race, but snatching the occasional victory is not going to bring a championship to HRC. Dovizioso has been a bit of a let-down as well. A lot can be chalked up to the RCV, which is clearly inferior to Yamaha's M1, but HRC will be taking a hard look at the riders as well. With Yamaha likely to side with Rossi if this alleged rift is even real, HRC will be first in line for Lorenzo's services.

F1 » Alonso unconcerned by Ferrari malaise.


I'm a McLaren guy, but Ferrari is going to be fine. Raikkonnen didn't have much to drive for and is prone to disappearing for stretches anyway. Fisichella has been a complete disaster. And Ferrari gave up on developing this year's car months ago. I think next year they will turn out a good car, maybe not as good as the Red Bull, but certainly something competent.

F1 » Raikkonen to Red Bull in F1 2010 as McLaren talks stall?


Like Nemo said, lots of smoke but no fire. While I would not be surprised if money is an issue, as Kimi is looking at a pay-cut, but Webber is already signed for 2010 and he's reliable and even-keeled. Raikkonen is expensive and prone to disappearing for stretches. No upside for RBR, so it's unlikely they were seriously chasing Kimi. A bigger story is Toyota's situation: they want Glock and Trulli out, yet failed to sign their No. 1 choice Kubica and likely have missed out on Kimi. Who does that leave them with? Kovalainen?

WSBK » Faulty tyre undoes Spies victory effort


Spies really needed something better than 4th place or for Rea or Biaggi to pip him for the Race 2 win. Haga is smart enough now to ride a safe, smart race in Portugal, knowing that's good enough to get him the title, whereas Spies will really have to ride the wheels off the R1 for both races in Portimao. Of course, with his Tech3 ride secure, Spies has nothing to lose, but Haga would have to absolutely collapse to lose the title and I've seen no reason why that would happen.

WSBK » Haga begins countdown to title face-off


I'm a huge Spies fan, and I don't know if anyone else is going to say it, but Haga has this in the bag. All Nori really has to do is ride well within himself in Portimao and the title is his. Provided Haga doesn't go slinging the bike down the road, I don't see how Spies is going to net 10+ points off of Haga, not with the form Haga has shown in the past few weekends. An early congrats to Nori as this title has been a long time coming. Next year will be just as exciting as this one, with all the big names coming back to the fold.
