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.

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

WSBK » WSBK Donington: Consistent Guintoli clings onto series lead

Can't think of a more deserving bloke to creep away with the championship after how many seasons of crap equipment and a bi-polar team. That said, the whole WSBK paddock is amazingly cuddly for the caliber of racecraft on display. Even veteran villains such as Biaggi and Melandri offer respects to their peers for having a better day - just fantastic racing no matter who wins.
