F1 » Button: Old Hockenheim was ‘mighty’


Webbertron: I don't mind the new Hockenheim layout. What really annoys me is the fact that they destroyed the old track. Sure, build a new track that's fine. But for God sake don't tare up the history.
Completely agree. Same story with Monza. Why leave the oval to disintegrate? Wish I could've seen races on that OLD layout. @ beastinblack Spa is just such an incredible circuit. I WISH we could see WSBK there!!!!

MotoGP » Stefan Bradl: Right tyres, 'wrong' bike


@ Braaahp I don't disagree with you. BUT, in a way I don't see Cal's attitude as completely wrong. Casey could ride around it's problem and get wins, (A) because he's brilliant, and (B) because I don't think the Yamaha and Honda had AS big a gap as it has now. Dovi and Crazy Joe ride around the issues now, to an extent, but it's good enough for a podium in iffy conditions, or a top five. Cal doesn't see the point in risking injury for a top five or odd podium on a bike where they have been trying to put a bandaid on a broken back for the last couple of years. Gigi, I hope, will sort that.

MotoGP » Stefan Bradl: Right tyres, 'wrong' bike


@ Noriben "f he was really a great rider he should be performing far better than this." If you are comparing Cal to Dovi or Crazy Joe, you need to remember, they have had a whole year extra on the Duc. Also, Cal didn't have the best start to the season. Crashes, a whole lot of technical issues, not of his own making, then riding injured. It's hard to gain confidence like that. People like to slate Cal, but if you watch his performance last year at T3 there is no doubting he is talented, AT LEAST as good as Dovi (who I think is MASSIVELY underrated). IF Gigi comes up with a plan that works on the Duc, I have no doubt Cal will be up there with Dovi fighting for podiums and maybe even wins. Last point, comparing anyone to Casey (apart from the other aliens) is pointless. Casey, Marc, Jorge, Vale and MAYBE Dani are in a class of their own. I feel Iannone could be at that level too.

WSBK » Sykes ‘goes big’ to earn his summer break


Yeah just imagine if an experience SBK guy rode the thing... podiums? No. Points? could well be the case. Yates is just tired IMO and May hasn't really got it either. Pegram surprised me, good ride Larry! As for Tom, yup the damage is done (to the rest of the grid) and now it's just a matter of doing the job to seal the deal. Real racer and Real WC! Maybe the most interesting battle will be who ends up third in the standings. At this rate the fight for second could still be a cracker. If Loris picked up a win or two and Marco continues the upward trend Guinters could be in trouble. Johnny sadly can't be competitive consistantly enough.
