MotoGP » Colin Edwards to retire at end of 2014


Memories- Colin signed my leathers at the 2002 BSB meeting at Cadwell Park, apparently he was there at Honda UK's invitation but he left the suits in hospitality and watched the races at the mountain. Then a few weeks later I watched him demolish everyone at Brands WSB on that awesome SP2, only Honda I've ever really liked. 2004 British Moto GP race, Colin in second, reeling in teammate Valentino, ah but then it started spitting and everyone except Valentino slowed down. Enjoy retirement Colin.

F1 » 'Ferrari is behind' - Stefano Domenicali


Taipan, I listed the times when Ferrari had the out and out most competitive car, rather than looking at a good rate of points finishes to end up in the top 3 of the constructors championship. Even if we restrict it to the last two decades as you mention, for 15 of those years they patently didn't have the best car. If we go back further, we see them more thereabouts than unstoppable. Ferrari and their fans have a tendency to suffer from an unfortunate sense of entitlement, when in my view they should know Ferrari's history of producing wonderful looking machines which were very rarely the fastest.

F1 » 'Ferrari is behind' - Stefano Domenicali


Thank you Nealio, for telling it like it is, "the Todt led era of Ferrari competitiveness was an anomaly". Schumacher, Bridgestone, unlimited budget, and unlimited testing was what made Ferrari competitive for a 5 year window. You have to go back to 1975-77 to find sustained competitiveness prior to that, possibly excepting 1979. Alonso can carp like a depressing loop tape all he wants, but he needs to understand the truth: midfield at best- the Ferrari default setting.

F1 » Brundle 'uncomfortable' with F1's increasing pay driver spread


Martin, if you are "uncomfortable" with it, everybody else must be "sitting on a thistle" with it. What F1 is saying to the world is that because it is too incompetent and bent to sort out it's financial situation, it can't afford to pay it's participants, so that Joe Muggins the racegoer sees a few multimillionaire aces and a load of comparatively tardy drivers who have never even won a raffle but whose daddies had large bank accounts which have recently been diminished. The reality is that F1 could introduce a very low budget cap, and we would see a return to drivers appearing on merit, and also teams that can pay their bills on time. This ain't going to happen of course, because of those people with power who are determined to maintain the status quo.
