MotoGP » Difficult to analyse Suzuki potential, says Dovizioso


I think Dovi is perfect for Suzuki for several reasons: -He's proven he can win on factory machinery -Ducati isn't going to be winning anytime soon barring a giant miracle -Suzuki can benefit from a rider who has established benchmarks vs, teammates on all of the Honda, Yamaha and Ducati to gauge success I don't really care which mfg wins, rather I want to see two fistfuls of bikes in with a shout and then we get some amazing battles. C'mon Suzuki! C'mon back Kawi! Welcome Zongshen and Mahindra!

F1 » Massa fumes at Perez over clash


Wow, I was flabbergasted when I came on the boards after the race to learn Perez was penalized for this accident. At worst it was a racing incident, at most Massa lost his mind and somehow expected to be given the corner. I have yet to see a camera angle where it appears that Perez did anything other than take his line, which as the car well and truly in front he was correct to do. I blame red mist for urging Massa to come from so far back, and I'm astounded the stewards called it the other way. Boo.

F1 » Massa fumes at Perez over clash


107SS2009: tian647, As I said, your opinion is a right of yours, and you can blame anything to your heart content, but you will do a lot better if you read my post about the stewards of the race capability to judge.
Undoubtedly the stewards have better experience and information to work from available to them, and ultimately their decision is the one which counts. My opinion remains unchanged based on the information available to me however, and regardless Perez' performance preceding the incident was very good despite enormous pressure - it's definitely a shame for him to lose points and grid positions next time out. Cheers.

MotoGP » Marquez, Lorenzo: Rossi will fight for victory


Iannone and Dovi have both recently shown the Ducati is fast enough to pull an early holeshot and lead from the start. Crutchlow's quali run seems to show he's finally back on form as well and is close enough he could also be in the dice at the start. If any of those guys or JLo can hold up Marquez's escape Vale has a good sot at catching the lead group. I sure hope so, will make for a far more interesting race than if MM walks from lights out.

F1 » Red Bull appeal rejected


@LetGo You make very sound arguments about the accuracy and reliability of various methods of calculating instantaneous fuel consumption, and the general imprecision of the FIA-mandated solution. This ruling had nothing to do with any of that. RBR were DSQ'd for not following the rules, and subsequent clarification offered by the sanctioning body. RBR admitted they did right up front, good for them, but that was sole issue under contention. Does the FIA have the right to say how racing in the FIA will work? Today's decision affirmed they do, as they should. That is not at all to say it's the best way or even a necessarily good way. If you want to play in F1 it's the only way.

F1 » Red Bull to appeal Ricciardo exclusion


er, Con't... RBR were given at least two opportunities to follow the FIA's guidance, but ultimately they elected not to do so. What possible grounds remain on which to base an appeal? Their maths were correct? Almost certainly they were, but that is sideways to the issue of choosing not to take the FIA mandated approach. This is as dumb as HRC mis-counting Marquez's laps at Philip Island last year...

F1 » Red Bull to appeal Ricciardo exclusion


Too many posts in to really matter now but, the stewards drew this conclusion: A) The team [RBR] chose to run the car using their fuel flow model, without direction from the FIA. This is a violation of the procedure within TD/01614. B) That although the sensor showed a difference in readings between runs in P1, it remains the homologated and required sensor against which the team is obliged to measure their fuel flow, unless given permission by the FIA to do otherwise. C) The stewards were satisfied by the explanation of the technical representative that by making an adjustment as instructed, the team could have run within the allowable fuel flow. D) That regardless of the team's assertion that the sensor was fault, it is not within their discretion to run a different fuel flow measurement method without the permission of the FIA. Red Bull almost certainly can prove they never exceeded 100kg/hr fuel flow. So what? The FIA gave them a course of action, they ignored it. They were gi
