F1 » Toro Rosso admits Vettel loss is hurting them


There is nothing more pathetic than listening to a team principle blaming everyone and everything for HIS pathetic performance as the team boss. For a back marker team he sure knows how to stir up drama in regards to his drivers...Scott Speed and now Seb. Same nonsense with both of them...sacked before the Hungarian GP. I'm waiting for the day when one of their drivers, before the Hungarian GP, holds a press conference and fires Tost and the team and says that the team and principle haven't lived up to his expectations. That would be beautiful.

F1 » Franz Tost - Q&A.


continued from above--- If Tost was honest, the interview would have gone like this: "Both of our back marker drivers have done well considering the P.O.S. car we've given them. However, I don't like Seb as his accent annoys me so I fired him. This time I was smart and didn't assault him like I did with another driver. I don't know why we've done so poorly as it has nothing to do with me. But I can tell you this...next year we'll be wasting fuel, rubber and everyone's time just like this year and since it's become an STR tradition, I'm going to fire a driver before the Hungarian GP!!! BTW, did I say that the teams poor performance has nothing to do with me??"

WSBK » Sykes: I’m closing gap on the front now


Cruchlow to take his seat!?!? No way. Unknown quantity WSS rider...and Camier? Who's he really racing against? BSB is a depleted field and Camier's BSB title will be the same as Hodgson's 2003 WSBK title...the best of the rest winning it because everyone else of worth has moved on to other series. Sykes should be given one more year to see if he can hack it. It's his rookie year and he's teamed with a rider that is head and shoulders above every other rider on the grid. He's 7th now which is a damn good showing for a rookie considering the depth of the grid but he may finish better as there's still 4 more tracks to go to. And no, I'm not a Sykes fan or British.

WSBK » Fonsi Nieto joins DFX Ducati.


I'm glad to see Fonsi back. He obviously does the business for Pepephone and they don't mind buying his ride. Race 2 in Qatar in 2008 was a great display by Fonsi. On a decent team with a decent bike he can do well. His 2008 campaign with Alstare Suzuki proved it. They should have kept him instead of Kagayama. A team of Neukirchner and Nieto would have been great for Suzuki.

WSBK » Hopkins leads Haslam despite time-out


I'm finding this very odd as well. This is a spec tire series so why is it that some teams get to test development tires and other teams do not? It's not like the Stiggy outfit is some **** team that are back markers. Even if they were, as a one make tire series, ALL teams should get access to test new rubber. It's not as if Pirelli are broke and they can't afford to hand out two sets of rubber to the teams present.

WSBK » Rea ends Imola test in charge


While I'm not a supporter/fan of Rea, all I can say is good for him. He's showing his true potential and is getting better as the season progresses. With his maiden victory in WSBK fresh on his mind and confidence boosters such as this, hopefully we'll see him fighting at the front regularly now. He's a young kid who's hungry just like Spies is. It only makes for better and more exciting races for the racers and for us fans. Now let's see if Kiyo can pull his finger out and start showing what made him a 2 time BSB champ.

WSBK » Checa targets Ducati, Yamaha scalp


While the whole concept of getting rid of these old "farts" may be a popular sentiment it's not going to happen as long as they are semi competitive. They bring something very important to every team that they are with...sponsorship money!!! If a young gun has no money, a semi competitive rider with money will get the ride. Perfect example is Hopkins. Checa is another good one. The teams are not there to make fans happy...they are there to win and money for long term development plays a huge part in that especially if there's two or even three seats available in a team. TK is a great example of this. I like seeing Checa there. He's the new Chili. Ironic that he has Chili's old number.
