F1 » Alonso: Lack of development makes racing boring

Testing doesn't automatically mean massive budget increases, teams used to test when they liked and weren't teatering on the edge of administration like so many seem to now. The way I see it Team X designs a new front spolier or their engine supplier a new part(s). It gets built but they have to sit on it till the next Friday practice (or longer if engine part) so in the meantime spend ludirous amounts of time in the wind tunnel (not cheap!) or dyno. Alternativly they take the car with old and new parts to local [nominated track...silverstone for most of them] and run back to back tests with old vs new. Time taken to evaluate = 1 day or less at a track, cost maybe 50-100 litres of fuel, some tyres, track hire, maybe 10 mechanics who'd otherwise be at rhe factory anyway. Often the old real world testing is cheaper and much quicker than virtual testing on computers or static wind tunnel tests.

F1 » Ron Dennis brands Eddie Jordan ‘a village idiot’

I like EJ, sure he's a bit of a baffoon but dares to ask questions other pitlane reporters shy away from and perfect balance to DC's more straight laced approach. As for Ron, he's the idiot that fired Whitmarsh, brought in the useless 'I got lucky results one season' Boulier and well one his way to leading the team to its worst 2 years in its history + can't stand his pompous 10 yard stance everytime I see him in the garage

MotoGP » BT Sport price rise for MotoGP viewers

Not sure what this means for Virgin Media cable customer. I get BTSport free with my TV package and don't pay for extra addons like *spit* SkySports or F1. If the knock on effect of BT paying over the odds for football rights which I dont watch means the freebie deal with VM ends then I'm out. Note - I might be prepared to cough up £5/month for MotoGP but anymore and out of principle I won't be paying and suspect the already reduced MotoGP viewer base in the UK will shrink further

MotoGP » Pedrosa: ‘I cannot continue racing this way’

shakennstirred: Muscles are bundled in a strong, thin, not very stretchy membrane called fascia like casing on a sausage. Muscle use raises energy demand. An increase in energy demand is met by increased blood flow. Increased blood flow can cause a growth in muscle volume by as much as 20 percent, but because the fascia doesn’t expand, things get tight in the compartment.
I'm sure that's a fairly accurate description of the problem but having more bulk in those muscles to start with gives more scope for muscle expansion and with more strength in the arms in total that would by normal reasoning make it less likely to approach the limit during a full race distance. Its surely no coincidence DP is the lightest/skinniest of the current riders? BTW I'm aware HRC probably have very good docs looking into this but perhaps DP doesn't like the idea lifting some weights and gaining a few KG in the process.

F1 » Alonso talks crash, contradicts many McLaren claims

Some of the responses here suggest you'd prefer to read prepared statements probably containing untruths? So far McLarens 'answers' to what they think happened haven't really added up hence all the speculation and conspiracy theories so I'd much prefer to hear Alonso give his version then see how McLaren respond as to me it sounds more likely given the direction the car veered off the track to be something mechanical rather than driver/wind related. Q: Do F1 cars have power steering these days?
