F1 » Dennis insists: No issues with Lewis


@Calvin Are you for real? A wining team has consistancy in effort, ability and drive of all team members, top to bottom. To say Whitmarsh and JB wanted Lewis out of the team is utter BS. McLaren as a team want the best two drivers and JB wants to be compared and compete against the best team mate available which he won't have next year. Fortune favours the brave and I believe Lewis has gambled. In the long term it could pay off handsomely for him as there will be some manouvering over the next year in the engine market. Quality drive yesterday from a quality driver. Even Alonso's favours Hamilton as his biggest threat over Vettel. He said something along the lines of being able to make a bad car go fast........Nuff Said.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi still the highest paid MotoGP rider


In addition the rivalry with Lorenzo and Yamaha will be allowed to "develop" and it will be a romantic end to Rossi's illustrious career. Unless of course by some miracle the new engine that Ducati IS producing turns their fortunes around and see's Rossi challenge for the lead or the championship in 2013.......,,which does at this point in time seem fairly unrealistic and quite sad as Rossi/Ducati success would have been great PR for everyone connected with the sport

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi still the highest paid MotoGP rider


Both Slide Rules and Ted G has a point. Having Rossi finish where he has been for Ducati does nothing for the show. Dorna, with the audience problems (Mediaset in Italy going to WSB because of the lack of show) Is desperately trying to attract new sponsors, tv companies, factory manufacturers (BMW, Aprillia, Suzuki, Kawasaki) and changing the rules. So the bigger picture in all this is that the revenues generated for the teams and Dorna far outway the figures Rossi gets paid. Love him or hate him Rossi is good value from a marketing perspective and all associations in Moto GP and motorcycling in general know this. Profile is everything. So the current Factory manufacturers have now got what they wanted with Espeleta recently announced the dropping of the rookie rule. In return to Dorna the concession from Honda and Yamaha will see the return or second coming return from Tavullia (as already speculated by Carlo Pernatt) - with the most likely destination being Honda (good the the show)

MotoGP » Dark night for 'worse' Rossi


Continued.......Stoner never won a championship again for Ducati because the bike was simply not up to it. Nothing to do with his abilities. Ducati and Rossi have taken a bold decision and in time they will benefit and win races like Stoner did for Ducati post 2007. Last years bike was a dog but its way to early to make judgement and i think we need to get the first four races out of the way before condemning the guy and his abilities.

MotoGP » Dark night for 'worse' Rossi


Strange how some of you approach this on this forum. You want to criticise the rider ability rather than a factual assessment or viewpoint. Lets be honest with ourselves none of us could do what those 21 lads do. The rider, Burgess, the riders pit team and Ducati are on a new development cycle with another new chassis, engine combination which will take time to gel. They have not had that time, money or resources to invest in the new concept like they did in 2004 and crucially had little time to test. That is the difference between now and the Rossi Honda Yamaha years. As good as Stoner and Lorenzo are they, like Rossi before them, are on the best machinery on the grid and the combination of talent and pinnacle engineering puts them at the top of the sheets. Take any part of that simple recipe away and the effect is what you see before you with Rossi. Riders win championships because of the combination of talent and having the best bike at any given point in time. Stoner never won a ch

F1 » Anthony Hamilton: I stayed a year too long


If they didn't have Newey, his capabilities and red bulls marketing money they would soon be in mid table mediocrity and I suspect this will happen sooner rather than later when red bull get bored and Newey leaves and Hamilon and Mclaren know this. Some of you may or may not like Hamilton but he can peddle a race car (even when the car isn't up to it) and has a track record of scraping out results in adverse situations i believe better than Alonso and Vettel and I hope the grudge match rivalry gets more intense which will be good viewing for all of us. We just need a Nelson Piquet "ugly wife" comment (that Piquet aimed at Mansell years ago) from Lewis about his competators and the racing will get even spicier on and off the track.

F1 » Anthony Hamilton: I stayed a year too long


I think the boy is a top lad and class racer. I'm sure that in years to come he will become a multiple champion and there will be some epic racing to watch (hopefully with Alonso-nice grudge match developing there) In a sport where there are increasingly less characters than of old it's good for Hamilton to be fanning the flames of competition with the "Senna /Prost" comparisons and I honestly couldn't agree more with his comments about Vettel. Vettel is young but his constant "number 1" finger wagging on Sunday morning after the race was repetitive verging on strange. I also like the "drinks company" reference which whilst antagonistic was designed to unsettle (although it didn't) and create more focus and tension which can only be good for us viewers. You would all have to agree that red bull are not where they are because of F1 history, provenance or Vettel. If they didn't have Newey, his capabilities and red bulls marketing money they would soon be in mid table mediocrity and I su

MotoGP » Rossi: I love this track


Rossi made 35 million last year................and not from Yamaha wages What that tells me is the marketing of Rossi the rider, the man, his personality and the success he has had over the last 10 years is now paying him dividends. Now please- you can't tell me that Lorenzo doesn't know this and that Lorenzo's theatrics and Rossi-esque attitude is ACTUALLY to take the piss out of Rossi - are you having a laugh? Jorge isn't that stupid - he and Yamaha wants the coin that Rossi is currently getting and when Rossi hangs up his GP Helmet or goes off Rallying Lorenzo is hoping to become the natural successor to Rossi and take increase his slice of Moto GP income. It's that simple...........
