F1 » McLaren driver announcement due before F1 finale


benignlyindifferent: So, If Alonso really is calling the shots and Honda is star struck and perhaps willing to sign a one year only deal, McLaren could keep Button and Alonso and place Magnusson with another team for a year. I do think they want to keep Button but I also believe they do not wish to lose KM. Actually, Button might enjoy the challenge. It would be the most recent teammate that is supposed to dominate him. There's quite a long list of those now. If anything, the pressure would be on Alonso because if Button wins that battle then everyone would question Fernando's supposed greatness. Personally, I think he is a great driver but not really any better than the other top three or four in F1.
Nice bit of speculation. Makes sense and goes with Alonso's quote "it will be “obvious” what he plans to do in the future once it is announced" Williams loaned Button to Benneton in 2001.

MotoGP » Dovizioso savours ‘special’ Ducati pole


This sort of argument always makes me laugh... One manufacturer dominates, everyone complains about it being boring, Dorna change the rules so other manufacturers can catch up, every one complains because they have an unfair advantage when they start catching up. The grids are depleted because other manufacturers can't afford to keep up, everyone complains, Dorna change the rules to enable more bikes on the grid, everyone complains... And on and on and on... As soon as Ducati catch up, they're on the factory rules and competition will be closer so we all win. Good luck Dovi!

MotoGP » Official: Jack Miller to MotoGP with Honda


I am not sure about Wayne Gardner - rest all had SuperBike experience underneath them and they knew how to control those 150 plus BHP beast and tame it before they came to motogp/then FIM 500....
I saw Gardener at his first wildcard rides in the UK in 82/83 at the Brands Powerbike International meetings up against the likes of Roger Marshal, Mick Grant, Roger Burnet etal, he kicked **** on a 500/F1/Streetbike then went on to win the 500 and F1TT Gold star championship in 84 then onto GPs. Don't know about his Australian exploits but he was very popular in the UK early 80s. MotoGP needs an Aussie and he's the best there is at the mo on the international scene. Makes sense from a publicity point of view. I wish him luck.

MotoGP » Silverstone responds to British MotoGP loss


At the risk of being flogged by Shamarone, Brands will never hold an international bike race ever again. To be FIM homologated it requires the purchase of local residents gardens to be able to extend the runoff at the back of the circuit around Westfield, Hawthorn and Dingle Dell & Sheene Curve, the circuit could be modified but then it wouldn't be Brands Hatch GP circuit anymore! Surtees bend is too close to Clearways to make extra runoff after Cooper Straight, Clearways/Clarke Curve runoff would encroach on the entrance of the circuit and require demolishing the HQ, main grandstand and hospitality. Paddock run off would encroach into the paddock itself which can't be moved further out because of local roads to Fawkham and the M20, plus you'd lose one of the most popular spectator areas of the circuit. Graham Hill Bend exit is too close to the pit wall meaning the pits have to be removed! Basically the land within and surrounding the circuit is too small and Palmer makes so much o
