F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2014: 1st


Webbertron: 2 things: 1.) YAY! Daniel Ricciardo deserved this reader poll, he has shown excellent racing this year and has made me proud to support him and to be an Australian. He is a like-able guy and adds some character in a world filled with the same old bland interviews describing the "Situation" or "Tyres". .
Sums it up perfectly for me. He's almost 'old-fashioned' :)

MotoGP » ‘Healthy’ MotoGP facing ‘optimistic future’


Tetley: All in all, I reckon 2015 will be a year full of interest, although 2016 will be dominated by who can adapt and make best use of the change in tyre supplier.
I reckon 2015 will be pretty much a re-run of 2014 as not much has changed. 2016 brings in equality of electronics and a single set of rules - hallelujah. Tyres will be a different make but all will have the same choice. It's been a bit of a bumpy journey but considering the mess motogp was in, it is recovering well. It may be very unfashionable but I think Dorna have cracked it and done a pretty good job in a short time.

MotoGP » 2016 MotoGP fuel limit agreed


NineTimes: @ Nealio It is Honda who opposed the idea of equal hard/software. Nobody except Honda threatened to pull out. This is because Honda wants to keep their unfair advantage that they built up over the years.
The electronic advantage was because Honda employed the best coders who did a far better job. However, if employing better people is unfair, then it must be unfair to employ the best engineers and riders. Hondas biggest advantage has always been their determination to win and they have been like that since the 60s. If that involves spending millions, they do. Other teams get starved of money by a reluctant overlord and are less successful. Been like that for decades.

MotoGP » 2016 MotoGP fuel limit agreed


TF2: As for this... well I believe that KHI (although they own Suzuki I believe?), BMW & VAG aren't attracted to MotoGP not because they cannot AFFORD to compete, but because H & Y had the solutions already in a very tightly consttained Factory Class where the rules ring-fenced their advantage. These firms would have to spend a mint, and look poor (just ike Ducati) trying to play catch-up very publicly. Not a smart move. I think BMW would like to come to MotoGP, its just they aren't fool enough to do so while the political situation makes it so much harder to compete than just technically. But then you know this already, its just you're more interested in burying this under BS than you are about changing it.
Did you not know that Ducati are part of VAG? And KHI do not own Suzuki. Both quite independent.

F1 » F1: Ricciardo wanted respect in 2014


Taipan:
areyoutalkingjibber: You may think that, but thrn again you may well be lacking in intellect, so, Hush now fool. I'm able to produce a picture of myself standing on the grid in front of Mr Ricciardo's car with less than a minute to start time at an international series event long before most of you had ever heard of him. Can you?
So a photo of yourself in front of Ricciardo's car BEFORE he was in F1 proves that Red Bull run 2 specs of car? Wow that's incredible and certainly proves your superior intellect. (not to mention imagination) Not that I would want to boast but I can produce a photo of me with my cat which certainly questions Einstein's theory of relativity.....
Surely, with a cat involved it should be Schrodinger rather than Einstein? :)

nealio: Different versions of the "unified" ECU software? Here we go again... the manufacturers maintain their advantage through the tech regs. Disappointed that the FIM and Dorna are such wimps but bottom line the MSMA must pay for the show.
Not necessarily. Think of the 'unified' software like Windows 7. You get WIn 7, Win 7 SP1, Win 7 SP2 etc. The statement is not very clear but it could be that they are allowing teams to run old versions of the software if they wish. The software is open source and a team can see what is in each version and then decide whether to run the latest version on a particular bike. This does not mean a team can have its own version of the software, just that it can run different versions within the team. Also, like WIndows, it may be highly advisable to NOT run the very latest stuff and wait until it is debugged

mrfill: The house buyers would not have defaulted if they were never granted a loan in the first place. If BMW started selling M5s at £5000 each, they would lose millions. So would that mean the buyers were at fault?
Wow! So if I loaned you money and you decided not to repay me, it'd be my fault for having trusted you? Remind me never to lend money to you.
If I had a job paying low wages and it was a huge loan, yes. Its not a question of trust, its a question of not having a stupid lending policy. If they can't afford it, don't lend it. Pretty simple really.
It's a simple matter of personal integrity or the lack thereof.
It's a simple matter of responsible lending or the lack thereof.
