F1 » Rivals unable to rain on Hamilton's Belgian parade


Congratulations to Hamilton, and Webber, great drives by both. I'm a Webber supporter, nationalism thing, but I have to say, I do think Hamilton is the best driver in the world, and has several WC left in him. I hope Mark gets it this year, because I don't think he's ever going to get a better chance. As long as his team mate doesn't punt him off again, I think he does have a pretty good chance. It isn't often that the F1 is more interesting and entertaining than the MotoGP, but today it was.

MotoGP » Stoner unsure if 2011 fork made the difference


I don't see what's hard to understand, wosi. At a perfectly smooth track with a consistent high grip surface, tyres working just right, long mid speed constant radius corners, you can get to the limits and know what they are. Repeatably, safely, reliably. Go somewhere bumpy and tricky, many surfaces, and the limit is control and rider skill / confidence, chassis integrity, then evaluating a new set of forks may be very difficult. Do they make a difference? Yeah. Are they any better? Hard to say. Ohlins and ducati would hate CS using last year's stuff because it stops their development dead in the water. They want '10 & '11 stuff working right. Going back to '09 spec is - FAIL!

WSBK » Ducati withdraws factory support for 2011


Well, this is a shock. Even if Fiat and Phillip Morris pay Rossi's cheque, Rossi and all the world will expect that he'll have a winner to throw his leg over. Perhaps that's already in development, or perhaps they're just clearing the deck to be able to build him a whole new motorcycle at short notice should he ask for one. It cannot be a coincidence that Ducati are throwing all their eggs in one basket now. Their withdrawal may have many factors and motivations we can only speculate on, but it has one obvious catalyst.
