F1 » Hamilton romps to Australian Grand Prix win


Good effort and result from Lewis, did exactly what he needs to do. Not the most thrilling race ever, but very professional. LOL - I was tempted to get a disk and do a little recording. I don't expect to see McLarens up the back of the grid and still up the back at the end all that many times going into the future. McLaren & Honda have history, but it didn't usually look like that.

F1 » ‘Open warfare’ permitted between Hamilton, Rosberg


'Open warfare' yeah, not real sure about that. In fairness, I'm Australian, and I spent years watching Mark Webber at RedBull, and what Nicco and Lewis have at MB seems to be a much more fair and open competition. They both seem to have enough brains to not blatantly take each other out, so the team are mostly (looks like) staying out of it and letting the drivers sort it out. As long as they continue to race hard but not do anything too silly, it should stay that way. What I'm not sure about, is whether the team are handling this differently, or whether it's just that the two drivers are handling it better.

F1 » Ricciardo excited for homecoming in Formula 1 opener


... before they got to disliking him that much. But it does get odd. There is often the parochial support for Brit riders that you'd expect. James Toseland is not only a transformer of loaves and fishes, he's a concert pianist and the next great male model... But the support and religious ecstasy surrounding Monkey Boy / Geriatric hash 46 is rather remarkable... And so is the rather unfriendly and unsympathetic treatment that Tom Sykes gets. I'm a little bit of a Tom fan, but it seems quite a few of his countrymen are not...

F1 » Ricciardo excited for homecoming in Formula 1 opener


Sparky62: I wonder what the motivation is behind the disagrees on the first 4 postings. It is not good to have Daniel in the sport? He should not make Australia proud? Cone on, tell us why you disagree! I would love to hear your logic.
Mate, I agree with you, but then again, I'm an Aussie and a child of 62, so.... Things to have in mind, this is a Brit website. How do Aussies generally relate to poms? Mostly, we tease them a little bit, some gentle sledging. Because, you know, we can. Well on this site, we're playing on their turf. A few years back, I was a vocal and very proud fan of Casey. The sh1t I got, and he got, on this site, knew no bounds. Some of it seemed to stem from humour, but some really seemed to show malice bordering on hatred. Quite a few poms seemed to like Mark Webber, but a fair few didn't. And Jack Miller seems to have stirred up a wave of jealousy and vitriol that have me feeling very positive about his future. Casey was well on his way

IndyCar » 2015 aero kits received by IndyCar teams


That really is getting on towards something you can't quite call an open wheeler any more. It's not quite an enclosed body with some air passages and vents in it like a racing sportscar either, it's a kind of no man's land. Which is not to say it's ugly or wrong, it isn't, it's just not something that easily fits in a known category. Imagine an enclosed canopy like an F16 jet over the driver... That's becoming rather a different animal.

MotoGP » Rossi: New Ducati ‘fast’, tyre rule ‘unfair’


So, let me get this straight. An Italian rider, who punched Max Biaggi while he was held, who wiped Seti Gibbers because he did a burnout on a scooter, who dive-bombed Lorenzo on the last corner several times, who went to the all Italian Wonder Team because Stoner wins on them, so how hard can it be? And now he's objecting because an Italian team, the one he used to ride for, has a slight edge in some things? Is it unfair? Of COURSE it's unfair - it is a sport with Italians and Spaniards in it - You didn't think it was going to be a straight contest did you? Go on, Vale, explain it to them, they probably don't get it. LOL. Show them all how the best Italian Soccer players get a penalty for their team at a key moment, that'll help... [edit] ... OK, on reflection, I am perhaps being a little harsh, Vale does have a point. I just think it's ironic that he is the one pointing it out.

BSB » Milwaukee Yamaha unveil all-new R1


Looks alright. There were a couple of issues with the first implementation of the crossplane crank on the road. They were a trifle conservative, so it was a little bulky and heavy and over-engineered, and down a few hp. This latest one, they say, is smaller, lighter, has the top end back, and (road version) has electronics as sophisticated as anybodys. Ok, that all sounds good. And I do like the styling better. The last one seemed a little bit overtly Godzilla, but this is a tiny bit more generic... Let's see how it goes. It looks right. Come on Aussie, come on... LOL.
