F1 » Lopez: There's only one Lotus, anything else is bullsh*t

In in the Ferdandes/Team Lotus camp. Until last year when was the last time you'd heard of Lotus in F1. Fernandes revived the name (with Protons blessing/license) & fabulous colour scheme and while I'm sure some of this was down to seeking sponsership, I've no doubt the team are enjoying trying to live up to Lotus name. Then what happens, Renault/Proton see money in the name (too late imo) and try to pull the rug from under them. Renualt/Proton should call themselves just that Proton-Renault

MotoGP » If you could ride one MotoGP bike…

'I want to/tried to register as F Fish as I type it here but it seems I am not allowed' try F-Fish (underscore or hypen) as I guess crash might not allow spaces in usernames. For me it'd have to be the original RC211V with its v5 free from rider aids although I guess Id go better and be safer on one of the later 212Vs with all the rider aids turned up a notch or 3.

MotoGP » Gardner: 'Big mistake' to write off Rossi

"Are you really trying to compare Stoner on the first year LCR Honda outfit and third rate satellite team to the factory HRC outfit? Stoner failed to make the RC211V a consistent race winner? Are you serious?" No, I was comparing Dani's lack of development skills as the #1 Honda factory rider with what seems like Casey's lack of skills in developing the Ducati over a similar period of years to something close to ridable. Sorry if I missed that bit out. Dovi for me is the man doing the biz with the Honda technicians over the last year and Honda will be wise not to suddenly listen too much to CS on the development front and simply let him ride the bike as fast as possible

F1 » F1 to switch to 'green' engines in 2013?

cont....... In short, by simply limiting the tyres ability to cope with excessive amounts of power, the manufactures can spend time producing interesting engine and car designs that because of the likelihood different teams will almost certainly come up with vastly different designs (compared to today's F1 cars), each design won't have to be honed to the nth degree (the bit that costs 10's of millions) with the best design taking the laurels. Seems simple to me but then I'm only a fan so best not listen to me

F1 » F1 to switch to 'green' engines in 2013?

screw the green brigade, this is F1 watched by 100's of millions of people for the noise, speed, smell, atmosphere and spectacle not the mpg. The cheapest solution to keep costs down and the spectacle high is always going to be down to having simple rules. If you look at the technical rules and regs on fia's website, you'll see why a lot of money goes into finding ways around them or tuning the limited designs of the cars to the nth degree The best option would be something along the lines of 1) min. 650KG cars, 2) any engine you want & 3) rules on fuel type but not limits (this is my one concession to prevent toxic mixes or encourage/force bio fuels) with rules as simple as this some people might think surely the cars will be doing 300mph and accelerating twice as fast but that won't be the case if the tyres are controlled to prevent them coping with "too much" power as when was the last time you saw a car winning a race with shredded tyres? In short, by simply limiting the tyres
