MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 1st


@sete Not exactly lucky at Philip Island was he? @desh Since the aliens arrived wins have been super hard to achieve, let alone titles. True for all but the aliens. Even including Rossi, its 1 in 4 chance to get a win. Thats easy. And the top 2 won 14 out of 18 races - wasn't hard for them really. Sadly though, this is what happens when there are 2 dominant makers and 2 dominant riders. Which one is best? Well, sometimes its one and sometimes the other. One thing for sure is that they are a cut above the rest. I actually like them both and if they continue into 2014 at the same level, it will be a 2 horse race and promotion for both to alien+. .

Marquez and Lorenzo are probably the two best riders currently anywhere. Both Spanish sure, but would anyone like to offer two others with a comparable track record. Any series. Spanish riders do proliferate but bearing in mind that in Spain bike races are more popular than comparable car races, it isn't surprising. Their junior series are regarded by many as the best around and attract riders from elsewhere as well - e.g.Stoner. However, moto2/3 are now producing fine talent from several countries and hopefully this will carry through to the top class over the next few seasons. Just don't blame the Spanish for having a good bike racing infrastructure.

F1 » F1 Driver of the Year vote: 3rd


More clowns than Bertram Mills it seems. The laughable 2.5 seconds a lap faster (than even an identical car) and the Hatboy would destroy him (when he struggled to 1 win against his team mates 2) added to the 'tyre advantage in the second half" (having already won twice as many races as anyone else) makes hilarious reading. So You may think that the top 2 will be Alonso & Raikkonen but it really should be Chilton top for being the record breaking rookie. First to complete all races in a season and that sparkling intellect and talent should put him first. Second must be Maldonado for buying his way into a team which will probably be still be waiting for the end of the week (when the deal with Quantum Dreamsandlies will be completed) this time next year. Rave on.... :)

F1 » F1 Driver of the Year vote: 5th


Why would they favour a Swiss? And don't forget who RG's manager is. Yes, he is French and bears a striking resemblance to his team boss.... I've never rated RG a great deal but his second half of the season was a transformation. He drove well and got results and was a much 'neater' driver. At the same time Kimi seemed to lose interest until he injured his back looking under cupboards and desks for his salary. If the surgeon had been available for implanting the moolah into KRs hand earlier, the story might have been very different.

One rather large advantage to having a junior team is that you can pick the drivers. RBR wanted Kvyat to have a drive. Without Toro Rosso in the pocket, who would take him on with no huge backing? Same goes for Ricciado. RBR hit the jackpot with Vettel and they may have found their Marc Marquez in Kvyat but without TR, we might never know. As for sharing technology, those exact words are what Force India use for their relationship with McLaren. For 2014, Toro Rosso will be using the Renault box of tricks so there will be a lot of common ground and I expect there will be considerable 'technology sharing' next year. Its pleasing to see Hulk well up the list. Just hope he managed to pick the right team this time as he has the foulest luck when it comes to getting a decent car at the start of a season.
