MotoGP » Smith pushes out Lorenzo to end Friday fastest


Good work from Smith, job well done. I noted that, looked for the usual suspects, looked for fellow Aussie, Jack (who is mid-field, also improving) and then I thought 'Oh no, the Brits are going to be a bit loud on crash now...' Jokes aside, you are doing fantastic in superbike, and now you're knocking at the top in MotoGP as well. It's been a long time coming, but it's nice to see. [edit] PS, good work by Danny Kent as well, outstanding.

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 » 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.

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.

MotoGP » Rossi: Four title fighters - no Marquez ‘crisis’


I don't know what the problem at Honda is, but I have a suspicion. Riders tend to request better braking, so the engineers build bikes that are longer and lower, have a lower CoG. That can & does give better braking power while upright, but it doesn't help as you tip in, and it makes the bike push at full lean. Ducati have had this problem for years, and seem to have just fixed it this year. Hondas started to wash out their front ends a few times from late last year. But the problem hasn't got better, it's got worse. Why? Because Danny and M&M keep asking for the same thing - greater braking power and more stability while on the brakes. So Honda make a bike that's longer & lower, has a lower CoG...
