MotoGP » Honda vows MotoGP withdrawal over ECU plans

Is this the same Honda that made the decision to return F1 as an engine supplier despite F1 running a control ECU? I suspect this is merely Honda wanting to state its position as a standard ECU in F1 hasn't reduced the show as they're still pretty flexible systems that can in theory do everything other ECU's do its just that the control nature of the ECU means code can't be hidden which might perform illegal tricks like TC (in F1) which is what I feel Motogp's standard ECU is aiming at for 2015 or 16 and about time imo. Leave TC and other electronic aids to WSBK bikes based on what you can buy in the dealer and ensure MotoGP is about the rider and engineering (but not software engineers)

F1 » Berger: I wouldn't have re-signed Raikkonen

I'm ok with Berger giving his opinion just like we're all posting here. It was probably only a passing remark to some journalist and a case of lets wait and see. On the flip side, Berger doesn't know much about how to win in F1 as while he did win 10 races, it took him 13 years, 210 races with the majority of them in good cars so no excuses.

F1 » Massa: I don’t understand why I got the penalty

I suspect the stewards awarded Massa the penalty this time as while its debatable who was at fault in F1 while you can sometimes pass with DRS/Kers, sometimes you have to try make passes on brakes and there seems to be a situation developing these days where on passes on inside are always defended by cutting the other driver attempting the pass off. Of course this leads to collisions were in days gone by drivers would have left the room and attempted to get the better drive off the corner. Once you have a wheel or even nose alongside then then the other driver should be seen to leave room but of course they can compromise the passing drivers ideal line by only giving them what they need to avoid a collision ie Massa would have had the wide line out of the corner if after the apex they'd still been alongside each other.
