F1 » Vettel berates Rosberg over team-mate jibe


Mrrat1: I can say that Formula E was a great event!! I got lucky and found it surfing channels...I really enjoyed the race. When they pitted to swap cars took me by complete surprise. It was great! The F-1 not so much. It was good to see the finger (I used to hate him)on the podium.
And how much of that enjoyment do you think was out of the novelty of the series? That could go away with a few races/seasons/decades. I'm not trying to put down Formula E. Not even close. I'm strictly commenting on F1 and the fact that not every race will be a nailbiter. People look at past seasons with rose tinted glasses, but in the 60s, you'd have races won by close to a minute, and half the field would retire. I personally prefer bikes these days, anyway. More passing, more respect amongst competitors. The rider ahead won't simply take a wide line out of a corner and push a rider off the track like you can see most times in F1 and especially in DTM. I refuse to watc

F1 » Horner denies Mercedes complaints are hypocritical


George Zaidan: even Ferrari isn't complaining, and that's saying a lot.
Ferrari aren't complaining because they've been a mid-to-back runner for a few years now. They're happy to be in the top 5, and a podium is a win to them. I'm no fan of RedBull or Horner, but when they were winning, everyone was moaning about Newey, accusing the team of all sorts of cheating, team orders, pushing boundaries of rule interpretation, etc. Rules kept changing mid-season to slow them down, adding to everyone's costs where lowering costs was "top priority". But somehow, with Merc, it's different. Is their advantage still their turbo layout? Or is it their aero package?

F1 » Saving 'face': Has F1 become anti-social media?


MrJones wasn't talking about every 84 year old. He was talking about the 84 year old Bernie, with the qualifier of "HE's stuck in HIS old school". And it's likely true. Bernie doesn't see the benefit of people talking about a race, sharing video clips of important incidents. Instead, the FOM take every YouTube link down. He doesn't realize hosting those videos himself would help him retain control of content and at the same time build up buzz and discussion of the sport on places like reddit. And he doesn't see what a 15 year old could do with Rolex advertising? This 15 year old will be 30 soon and he will likely be well off, and the brand name of Rolex would be well established in his brain where he won't need a commercial to buy one. He missed the course at school about building brand awareness and loyalty.

F1 » Fernando Alonso to miss Australian Grand Prix


The human brain is still a mystery, it isn't a computer or a watch that you can diagnose. If Alonso doesn't remember large chunks of the crash then he likely had a concussion. And they might have initially thought it would have subsided before the race. But maybe he is still feeling dizzy, and the docs are recommending that he not risk another crash. Stacking concussions in a short period of time can be very damaging from what I understand, so the risk is too great for the potential reward.

F1 » Fernando Alonso to miss Australian Grand Prix


MrJones85: Well, Honda can't be too happy about this. They are paying him big bucks and to have him sit out the first race is not a good return on there investment.
This is business, and there are no guarantees in business. That's why there's insurance. And backup drivers. And testing is still dangerous, even if it isn't a race, so there's every possibility your driver could get hurt. Try talking to a motorcycle team about return on investment, lol. So much easier to get hurt there, in a race, or practice, or off season training on dirt bikes, etc. But it's necessary if you want you rider to improve.

WSBK » Pegram: Canepa at EBR is going to be a big help


Which American kit does Buell use only? They weren't shy about using Rotax engines in the 1125. And anyway, I'm sure Erik would prefer to race something he had built rather than buying a bike from someone else and building a team around that. That's not what he's there for. Any SBK races I've seen had EBR bikes out of the race in the very early stages with mechanical issues. It's a new team, a small team. Buell isn't yet a "factory" I don't believe. They're very much close to a privateer. They've only just started selling a bike that doesn't cost $40,000US.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 2nd


Lots of confused responses on here. Even Crash says this listing doesn't necessarily follow the championship results. IE: finishing 1st doesn't guarantee being 1st on this list, for the slower among us. And this is a popularity contest, and Vale seems to be more popular, or have a larger contingent on this site. It isn't a scientific poll. Go accept these facts and move on. And for people citing numbers like wins, poles, etc, you should also consider Rossi's age, his trouncing of his teammate, and the problematic seasons he's had. Even MM said he hopes he can emulate him when he's at this stage of his career. Competing against people 10 years younger in a very physically demanding sport isn't easy.
