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

MotoGP » Suzuki attended MotoGP ECU meeting

Why the hell no new grid places! It's already a depleted field, they have history, as long as they pay the entrance fee I don't see why you would try to make it even harder to join the racing... As someone else has said, you almost hope the ignore MotoGP and concentrate on their SuperBike effort... Sad really - I love this sport and go to watch the TT most years, a field full of Moto3 and Moto2 followed by a small group of MotoGP bikes with a large wait between them passing and them coming back...

MotoGP » Rossi: 'Slowest of the three but we have to try'

@ Southerner: No, when he moaned he was called a moaner. I didn't read Rossi moaning. He said that they were arguably the slowest of the three in contention for 5th (I'm sure you can't argue with that?) but he would give it a go. That is not moaning, that's saying lets's get out there and see what we can do! The difference is that when Stoner won he moaned that this wasn't right, or that wasn't right. When he had to fight he complained that the other rider did not give up his place easily. When Rossi loses a fight on track he still has a real smile on his face because he is a racer! Of course he prefers winning, but even this year I've seen pictures of him in the pits, after losing a race long battle for some lower place (6th IIRC) and he was beaming because ge *could* fight for it. That's why I like Rossi, when he wins and when he loses.

F1 » Ecclestone calls for scrap on 2014 engines

But Rob.. How big are those tanks? I appriciate that they want as little weight as possible in the car, but if they feel that having to carry fuel that add's say 1/2s to a lap gived an advantage of 3/4s per lap on pure power then they will find a way to fit a bigger tank in the car andf claim that extra 1/4s. Limit the fuel and that's not an option anymore - they have to find the performance without using the extra fuel. I do agree though that making the F1 car fuel efficient does nothing to the eco credentials of a sport that flies teams around the world. Nor will it help with costs, as making a V6 produce 800+bhp within tight technical confines probably means less performance per 1m spent. If they teams really wanted to save money they would, but the only ones that want to are the ones who cannot survice - the rest don't care. Until it's their turn of course!
