F1 » Alonso celebrates ‘fantastic’ car despite Q2 shortfall

Thank goodness... I was seriously concerned after that first pre season test in February .... The more competitive they are and the more they are racing with faster cars the more the car and engine will must be relieved that it has potential... This season is a right off for the championship for everyone so hopefully next year with these stupid tokens gone and the manufacturers allowed to develop the engines it will bring some competition to the grid....

F1 » More setbacks as coolant leak halts Alonso, McLaren

It's official.... Both mclaren and Honda are delusional .... It's been nothing but a disaster from the beginning.... Why wasn't Arai fired last year already?? Why haven't they dropped the silly size zero concept??? Why can't they change the engine in the car within a day?? This team is like the faulty towers of F1.... I'm a massive Honda fan but even I can't defend this circus.... I will put money on it that there will not be a Honda engine in that mclaren next year, in fact I bet Ron Dennis is on the phone as we speak seeing what he can get.... My guess is that if Honda stay in F1 they might be supplying the sauber at best next year.... Christian Horner must be thanking his lucky stars as it looks like Renault have got it sorted finally... Very disappointed .... Expected so much more than this :(

F1 » More setbacks as coolant leak halts Alonso, McLaren

The thing that frustrates me the most is that it doesn't look like they have made any progress. The size zero concept is a foolish path. The trade off for the aerodynamic gain could easily be overcome by more horsepower on a bigger turbo'd engine, and it looks like the compactness of the packaging makes the car almost impossible to work on when there is a problem. My other issue is that they are paying Button and Alonso silly amounts of money when they could have had Vandoorne and Magnussen (he must think he won the lottery this year!) driving this nail around for a fraction of the cost while it gets developed. It doesn't need two world champions to drive this car around 2 seconds off the pace to tell them that the car is crap. This is ruining both Mclaren and Honda's reputations and I really can't see this continuing beyond this year.........I hope they prove me wrong but without regular in season testing and freedom to change whatever they need to on the engine then they are stuck w

MotoGP » Stoner’s Ducati return set for January 30

yash: Ducati hold him in high regard! Let's see how long that lasts... Watching him on track... Also will be interesting to see how Marquez treats him, if he gets a wild card! And Rossi will be there too! Hahaha! Too much fun! Bring it on!
I'm not convinced he'd be quick enough to bother the top 4 anyway! MM brought a whole new level of speed to the premier class and only a few have adapted enough to keep up, CS has been gone too long and he'll be on the wrong bike.
Absolutely, and I think Honda could see this when he was testing doing race simulations and flying laps.......hence the reason they didn't want him to wildcard and create a media disaster for them and himself......... Him and Ducati will fall out again, I'll put money on it.........
