MotoGP » Mugello MotoGP: Dovizioso: Fifth best we could hope for


Whilst not the best way of putting Adolf has a point. I noticed that in the interview with the new boss at Ducati yesterday on TV. He was waxing lyrical about how much progress has been made, the improvements and how, whilst it's a long game, they are on the right road. Then the riders were interviewed who said the same thing as Stoner, Rossi et al have said: it doesn't work. If they do not open their eyes and accept that the bike doesn't work they are never going to fix it!

F1 » Perez lays blame at Raikkonen’s door


As others have said there the only reason there wasn't an accident earlier is that the other two drivers had reasons for not wanting to be taken our. Jensen because running your team mate into the wall is frowned upon and Alonso because he is playing the long game. But all of those moves were made from a point where he knew he was not going to pass. The move in Kimi was a joke - he was barely at the back wheel of the lotus at the point of turn in and should not have been in that position. I did love though that Jensen ended his race by overtaking him at the pit entrance. I don't normally cheer a retirement, but here it was just so poetic!

F1 » Mateschitz: F1 'not racing any more'


I'm neither a hater or lover of RBR, but the guy has a point. Making a race interesting by falsely making tyres fall apart is not racing. But his team are also part of the problem for this being introduced. They have a car which cannot follow another car close enough to do any real racing (IIRC a couple of races ago SV was told by the tem that the aero will degrade to the point where his tyres would fall apart if he got within 3 second of the car in front). Where is the racing there? I want to see cars within inches of each other through the corners so that the can get the tow on the straights and use skill to get past! Not a race where tyres or DRS force the outcome :(

MotoGP » Official: MotoGP to BT Sport in new UK TV deal


When the BBC lost F1 I wasn't overly fussed - F1 has got terrible over the last few years with fakery used to replace real racing (Kers, DRS, deliberately crap tyres etc). But I *love* MotoGP (and contrary to other here I actually like Cox and Parish for the enthusiasm that they show - and they make as many mistakes as Toby and Moody during the course of a race anyway :p ) Do I take a bloody expensive subscription to a pay channel for the Dutch coverage - with crap commentators, or do I give up watching altogether.... :( Not happy! On the bright side I will get my summer weekends back!

F1 » Your views: Time for a return to a tyre war?


Whilst I hate the current "make the tyres provide entertainment" rule I'm not sure that different manufacturers would help. As others have said, remove the mandated rule that tyres must drop off the cliff and it would help. But then it's only one symptom of a sport rapidly decreasing in entertainment. DRS and Kers are fixes for symptoms rather than problems. Radio communication telling Seb in Sepang not to get within 3 seconds of the car in front during one stint due to the aero reduction and tyre degradation of running in that air is a far more serious issue. Commentators in Australia talking about how close the cars were running when there were multiple car lengths between them highlight the same problem. Close means almost touching. Draft through the corner and then get the tow on the straight. Real racing. Modern cars need clean air and so real racing is very hard to do. So Kers was introduced as a type of 'press to pass' button. That didn't work as well as expected so DR
