F1 » Schumacher behind aborted start

Is this the lowest point of Schumacher's comeback? Errors when lining up on the grid aren't unheard of - Fisichella did the same thing in Malaysia (?) some years back - but to not be clear on the restart procedure which changed some years ago is sloppy, and the speed limit infringement is just embarrassing, not to mention dangerous. There were flashes of pace earlier this year, but the overall impression has been of a slightly doddery middle-aged man who's lost his fitness advantage and had his more aggressive tactics copied by younger, faster men. Even considering the PR impact he has, it's amazing that Mercedes are even contemplating keeping him on.

WSS » Foret awarded truncated Brno race win

Poetic justice for Sofuoglu to lose a win in that way, but you have to ask whether Quarmby was that badly injured. He looked fine as he got out of the way of the middle of the track. Comical to hear the confusion in the Eurosport commentary booth as to Foret getting the win. Just because Kenan lead for over a lap doesn't mean he lead the last lap completed by the entire field. I was watching on HD and it just cut straight from Day and Hodgson's confused commentary to the WSBK race start. Shoddy.

MotoGP » Abraham out of Sachsenring, replacement named

At least Battaini has been riding the bike on a regular basis recently. Ducati and the Cardion team will probably learn more from having him on board than they could from a quality out-of-work guy - although only Vermeulen really comes to mind in that field anyway. Checa has had his time in MotoGP, and imagine the blow to Althea if he got injured? Giugliano might have been an option if the Ducati higher brass see him as having real potential though.

WSS » PTR boss: Sofuoglu penalty not harsh enough

I agree with everyone who's surprised at completely agreeing with Simon Buckmaster. Even if Foret did something previously which we haven't seen footage of, Kenan's move was deliberate, needlessly aggressive and endagered himself, Foret, and possibly other riders and even marshals. It's not an isolated incident, and there's no way the guy should be allowed out there in this frame of mind.

WSBK » First image of Joan Lascorz since accident

Still a really upsetting situation for such a fine young rider to find himself in, but there is still hope that he can fully recover, or at least lead an enjoyable and productive life. There is hope for future medical developments such as stem cell research, although there are legal obstacles to some aspects of this, which can hopefully be swept away to improve people's quality of life in this world.
