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?

F1 » Williams urges more fan research to develop F1

They could start their research by visiting and other similar F1 resources around the world as all the info they need is already there and has been written for some time. Aside from a car changes which imo shouldn't be drastic as that adds costs but getting rid of fuel flow sensor and just giving teams a set amount of fuel to get to the finish line as quickly as possible by whatever means they deem best would spice up the show along with dropping mandatory running of both tyres again allowing teams to use all soft tyres (with less life) for a race, all harder compound or any combination in between surely is better than the current system which while interesting for a few years when introduced has now been honed to the point were pretty much all the leading teams run the same tyre compounds at each stage of a race. Re: tracks, drop circuits that have poor attendances as while the local organisers in ME and some other places may well be able to summon £30-40m to boost Bernie'

F1 » McLaren ends testing with 32 laps-a-day average

I don't understand why teams (at least big ones like McLaren) don't have full car dyno's (not just engine) to perform extensive testing of the complete systems weeks or months before hitting the track. It might not emulate the loads and stresses on the a chassis of a laps of a track but the complete power unit and control systems can be worked hard and little things like water leaks or that other gaskets that failed would surely be likely to be picked up.

F1 » McLaren announcement set for Thursday

richard: moi. the problem is that the japanese have absolutely no input in the board of macca directors. so whether or not button is adored by the japanese, is completely irrelevant.
not irrelevent, they may have no direct input but I'm sure their thoughts on who they'd like to seeing driving the car with the engine they're exclusivly 'giving' to McLaren will be taken on board. They're not daft, they'll know Alonso is more likely than Jenson to be able to deliver a championship if the car and engine can match the Merc but Jenson is a safe pair of hands with which to get the points required for the constructors. I wouldn't be surprised if Honda's PU et al is a match for the Merc given the extra time they're had to study the opposition and still haven't had to homologante it yet so we'll probably find they've followed Merc with the general layout iirc something to do with the turbo being driven on opposite side via a shaft the Renault and Ferrari haven't done
