F1 » Magnussen admits snub ‘difficult to take’


It's hardly a snub, he's still driving for them, he could've been out on his ear and stuck in a budget team. Crash wrote 'snub' to sensationalise the headline, Kevin just said he was disappointed not to be competing but pleased to still be with McLaren. You never know RD may have fought to keep him, there's obviously a lot of Honda politics here we're just unlikely to find out what actually went down.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain


The real problem is that they don't have inters to choose from because Bridgestone can't keep up with the demand of producing those as well as all the other tyres. Back when they switched to a control tyre the concern was that Bridgestone were too small to cope, this compromise surely is evidence of that? And yes, surely they're even more likely to have a serious accident in the pit lane with everyone attempting to change their bikes within a two lap window, rather than a wet tumble in an area with massive runoff. To also suggest that riders aren't the first ones to realise it's raining is a ridiculous suggestion! Each rider knows his own limits.

They still have to produce the same number of tyres, irrespective of tread compound and design. Everyone agrees the tyres are the problem in mixed conditions, so it is the tyres which should be altered, not the rules.
Yep absolutely. I thought the rules regarding tyre quantities were written based on what was practical for Bridgestone to supply as well as levelling the field? If they had inters this problem wouldn't exist. And yep I did four seasons in SS400 and two as an F1 sidecar passenger, when you hit water on slicks it's virtually game over, which demonstrates the skills and iron balls these guys have.

MotoGP » Deficit to top 'unacceptable' says Redding


Wow, I wouldn't want to get any facts wrong around here, the universe will collapse. I'd wait until the end of next season before even thinking about writing Scott off, way too many variables. But anyone that's won a GP in any class is not crap eh. He's going to be on the back foot until he can comfortably fit on the bike and his crew chief/team gets their head around it all, then I'll reserve judgement. I'm looking forward to seeing how he progresses.

F1 » Ecclestone rules out three-car F1 teams


Of course just the UK won't save it, but maybe it would be saved if it was on all national TV throughout the world. The BBC let it go because he priced them out. It's backfired for the sport, most of the people I know don't/won't pay for TV and even though they are extreme F1 fans they'd rather find a stream of it somewhere, which means the official viewing figures are negatively affected. Bernie has no choice but to give some money back to the sport. F1 is currently a good model to show what's wrong with the rest of the world at the moment, the greedy few at the top taking it all and everyone else has to suffer. Even distribution of the funds throughout has to be the answer.
