F1 » Ascanelli: Vettel in same league as Senna

I wouldn't say I agree with the comment, but I concede there are parallels. They're both spoiled children. They're both capable of creating moments of magic, instants of inspired genius, and moments of face-plant stupidity. Whether Vettel is quite the equal of Senna - I don't know. I think it's a bit early to make that call. I think Senna was a likeable guy most of the time. Not sure that's always true of Seb.

WSBK » Corser: Small steps needed to improve

I'd agree the in house electronics and software development are the slow things. By doing it all themselves they have to re-invent the wheel all the time. On the other hand, it means they own the solution they market - which is very much the point, from their perspective. It does also look, sometimes, like the desmocedici in that you need to fire it off turns with the rear spinning to go fast. That isn't easy to do, and you may only be able to do it on some corners, and it is very hard on the tyre. That would go some way to explaining why it starts well but fades.

MotoGP » Sheene and Hunt – When Playboys Ruled the World

@ oldboyracer "Why are people surprised at Aussie vilification of heros who are not Australian? Narrow minded colononialism!" Bite your bum you silly old f@rt! When you're dishing it out, it's robust humour and triumphant wit, but when it's coming your way it's narrow minded colonialism. And I haven't seen much vilification either, I think most aussies would join me in giving Barry and James another big round of applause. Heroes, both of them, to us as well as to you.

MotoGP » Moto2: Kenan Sofuoglu to Gresini?

"What the point? He has already shown us he cant ride a big bike so will never make a Moto GP rider." Actually, no. All it showed was he couldn't ride THAT big bike. Some bikes just don't suit some riders, and no amount of setup can change what the bike is. Put him on a different bike - perhaps an M1 - and it may be a very different story. A motogp bike is more like a 600SS than it is like a SBK. It's just a lot more powerful.
