MotoGP » Stoner denies Lorenzo for first Jerez victory


@inconvenience Spies has admitted that today was all him, "I don’t really know what happened, I got off to a pretty good start from the line but after that I didn’t have a good feeling with the bike, it was a pretty pathetic race really for me. I’ve apologized to the team and we’ve had a long meeting about what I was feeling with the bike. I just wasn’t comfortable, I rode as hard as I could, but the speed just wasn’t there. We need to find something because we can see the Yamahas are working well but my feeling with the bike is not great. It was a bad day at the office today.” Does that make you happy or do you resent his honesty?

MotoGP » Stoner denies Lorenzo for first Jerez victory


The next week should be quite telling for Spies, will changes to the team be made, will Jarvis make any effort to assist him to improve, or will he be left alone on an island to fix things himself? Clearly something is wrong in the system. Spies did not forget how to ride overnight. I am impressed with Cals efforts and he seems to be at the top of his game. I think the Tech3 mounts are showing how truly close they are to the factory mounts too.

MotoGP » Ben Spies dismisses Dovizioso speculation


I suspect that there was much more to this interview than was published. It does not take a genius to pick and choose comments to make someone appear poorly in the press. One has to wonder about this journo, whom is from Ireland, and what his motivations were for releasing it and why he chose to shape the story in the manner that he did. I highly doubt that he has written about UK riders in this fashion.

F1 » Gonzalez to test for Caterham


@Ajax I think their alliance goes further than most may believe. I believe that they have a similar pact to the one that Force India has with McLaren. They do use the same engines ,KERS, transmissions as RBR, various other technologies, and the new WSR effort is Arden/Caterham which is the Horner brothers race team. I do agree that Van de Garde would be a better choice than Gonzalez, he is mopping the floor with his team mate currently. Van de Garde has been getting the Friday laps that were promised to Rossi, so at least he is getting seat time. Rossi is the flag flapping in the breeze, idly sitting around.

F1 » Gonzalez to test for Caterham


@ DNF My mistake, it is hard to interpret sarcasm sometimes. I agree they are clueless. One would hope, that of their many alliances with Red Bull, Caterham would learn how to actually bring their top young drivers along rapidly and be able to see them into the top tier. I am confused by their actions this year thus far. Alexander Rossi is the official Friday driver, but every driver they have besides him has been in the F1 car. I hope that Rossi is able to impress Horner at Arden in WSR and maybe he can be shifted to Red Bull and their proper development squad. I only see empty promises being fulfilled at Caterham.

F1 » Gonzalez to test for Caterham


@DNF They believe in his PDVSA money, not him. Seriously, despite what Caterham may publicly say, his record is among or very near the least successful of any of the GP2 drivers. GP2 is not a destination, it is ladder, and if you have 60 starts without a single podium, it is clear that there is another driver that deserves your seat. Results are what matter, he has none.

F1 » Gonzalez to test for Caterham


Oh come on, this kid is the next Senna! With results like his 19.5 place average finish this season in GP2 and 4 total points scored in 60 career GP2 races, he is clearly going to win many F1 titles! Not! All the while their official Friday test driver, whom has a future in F1, has never turned a single F1 lap this year. They clearly have no idea what they are doing when it comes to driver development.
