F1 » Haas unlikely to make Danica Patrick F1 swoop

Mz Patrick is a very pretty lady, and she's good in front of a tv camera. She can drive, and in some very specific circumstances she can drive pretty damn well. But she is not even close to the minimum standard for F1. She would be so far out of her class it would be a joke. I'd love to see a female competitor or two, but Danica wouldn't be a real good choice.

MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident

mark.james.7374: Up VR's ass as well, this is racing isn't it? god they might as well rap him up in cotton wool if your not aloud to at least take a shot at the the guy who's leading the race,....
Mark, I really think you (and a few others) need to go and read up and revise your view of the rules, not only of bike racing but any kind of motor sport, because you (and many others) don't seem to understand them. It is the responsibility of the person making the pass, to ensure the pass is safe. It is the right and privilege of whoever is in front, to take the natural racing line and defend their position.

MotoGP » Michelin: ‘Elbow’ style to stay in 2016

On the subject of first and when... in '98 I was hosting an R1 rider's forum, and we had some pics of JF Rugia doing it, but a week or two after the first R1s got delivered to customers, we got a shot sent in of a customer dragging his elbow on that, on OEM tyres with about 500 miles on it. I was doubtful, claimed photo shop. Within a week we had 3 more... Now OEM rubber on first gen R1s was not the greatest & stickiest rubber, but people could do it. I haven't become one of them, despite getting a roadrace license, but it can be done and has been done without too much issue for quite a while, on stock standard road bikes.

MotoGP » Iannone toasts 'special' piece of history at Mugello

Congratulations Joe, well done. This is going to be interesting. Joe is on pole, but he's injured. Dovi is on the other side, on softs, and he isn't. And they have Jorge between them, and he's not shy. And back of them you have Danni, who has a sore arm and is being careful, which might help him nurse tyres to the end. And you have Rossi, who has come through from about there on the grid to win once or twice before, and he has the home town crowd on side. He even has the solar helmet. And a couple of rows behind them, you have Marcy Marc, who has history (from moto2 days) of coming from 33rd to first in one lap, and bulldozing a few slow-pokes on the way. I need to stock up on popcorn. This is better than Days of our Lives.

F1 » Button on 25 place penalty: You’ve got to smile!

I admire his sense of humour. It does illustrate one thing very sharply - this is what driver skill and experience is worth in modern F1. One day in a decade you get a situation where really good experienced drivers can make the difference, but mostly it is a technical contest between companies about building the fastest car. It should be about both, driver and car, but usually it isn't.

MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez 'error of judgement', but great pace

Nobody much is writing M&M off. We all know he can win from the back. The common, almost universal concern I've seen, is that he's going to bulldoze some innocent bystanders on the way to the podium. Motor sport 101 "It is the responsibility of the overtaker, to make sure the pass is safe, to make sure the overtaken is never left with nowhere to go or brought down avoiding you." BSBK is a good example. MadMax movies are not.

MotoGP » Marquez trying to tame 'aggressive' Honda

I think the problem is one they've had before - they're Honda - they've made the damn thing too long and low. Ask a rider 'What is the limit that stops you going faster?' & he will say 'It monos off corners and it stoppies on the brakes.' So then they make it longer and lower, so then it doesn't turn. Honda have been bumping their head against this for years, but they keep cycling bright young men through the race team, and they keep making the same mistakes over and over.
