MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow: Braking the Honda

For me it's interesting as to where Cal stands in the ranking of world riders. If I were the Repsol team manager looking for a rider the first 3 I'd contact would be MM, VR and then JL, but then who? DP?, AD?, CC? I think that at his current level of performance Cal might actually be somewhere in the top 4 and would outperform DP. Either way it's great to have a genuine contender who is British rather than an also ran. Is Cal now an 'alien'?

MotoGP » Female Malaysian Fifi seeks Moto3 wild-card

@VKal - I would love Fifi to do well and don't underestimate the resolve of any racer who has made it onto any grid but the competition in Moto3 isn't just stiff, it's almost psychotic and this is backed up by the fact the many of the riders are amongst the most able in the world. If she's 2 seconds off the pace she'll be nowhere. She'll be shocked by the hardness of the passes she'll be subjected to and the lack of respect shown. Also, much as I like and respect Jenny Tinmouth, at the moment going from her underfunded and run on a shoestring Honda to a factory one hasn't improved her position so much so at the moment I'm less than impressed. The only female rider I saw genuine speed from was Cat Green but unfortunately by the time she got a decent bike it was too late.

MotoGP » Female Malaysian Fifi seeks Moto3 wild-card

I'm not sure why there aren't more women riders but both Jenny Tinmouth and Alex Lowes referred to a certain desperation to win which female riders so far haven't had. Perhaps putting your life on the line for something as abstract as a race win isn't in a female's nature? When I was very young I dreamt of motorbikes and spent much of my youth hanging around them and this came from a seemingly innate love of IC engines. I wonder whether women have this. I'm actually pro women riders but I think they have to earn the ride on merit. Giving token rides to women for the sake of it only damages their cause. If Fifi does take part in a Moto3 race I think she will be totally shocked by the skill and commitment level and will be lucky to come last.Not trying to belittle her but that will probably be the way it is - nobody will be happier than me if she makes me eat my words though.

F1 » Rosberg commands and conquers Spanish GP

Curing F1 is easy, here's how: - Reduce electronics to a bare minimum and standardise - put the control back in the drivers hands. - Restrict aerodynamics SEVERELY - allow drivers to slipstream each other - Have huge sticky slicks to give grip in corners - Use steel brake disks to increase braking zones for overtaking - Put full fat, high revving, powerful motors in the car for a bit of excitement. - Stop all pit stops - If you wanna pass you do it on track. - Stop pretending that F1 has to be 'kind to the enviroment' - this is motor racing (or should be). Or go to a bike race.
