WSBK » We have a lot of work to do, admits Sykes


Matt2:
mrfill:It looks like an attempt to improve Honda's position relative to Kawasaki and Ducati
Stupidest thing I have ever read on here. Do not start posting that conspiracy sh1*. How on earth will this help Honda who has much weaker streetbike than Yamaha, Kawasaki, BMW, Ducati? Absolutely no merit on your theorys.
To close the gaps between manufacturers, you can either speed up the slow ones or slow down the fast ones. The changes are not designed to make bikes faster - quite the opposite - so any manufacturer with a weaker street bike will lose less. Honda should therefore benefit more than, say, Kawasaki. I certainly don't believe it was designed exclusively to help Honda but they stand to gain more by losing less, if you see what I mean.

WSBK » We have a lot of work to do, admits Sykes


A lot has changed as all bikes will be EVO in 2015 with more stock bits and dumbed down electronics. It looks like an attempt to improve Honda's position relative to Kawasaki and Ducati but with lots of new models like the Kawasaki H2R 300bhp turbo monster, the new R1 and the RCV Honda appearing on the market I would guess there is likely to be all sorts of fancy new machinery appearing. Just like in F1, a big rule change has helped one team big time (Merc) and hindered the previous top dog (Red Bull). Who the big winners and losers in WSBK will be, remains to be seen.

F1 » F1: Vettel joins Ferrari on three-year deal


Fullofit: Doesn't really matter who goes where in 2015 ... none of the other "factory" teams will be able to race at the front due to the engine freeze, & none of the Mercedes engine customer teams will be able to fight the factory squad. All these driver movements are pretty irrelevant when they're about 3rd place.
I'm sure Bernie will come up with some plan... Double points for teams signed up until 2020 perhaps...

Anyway, Honda don't need any assistance from rules. If they perceive a problem, they will fund it. Maybe they will homologate the rc213v-s for WSBK if they feel it is worth it. These new rules won't stifle the makers, they will bring out ever more powerful road bikes (as we are currently seeing) closer to motogp specs. And they'll cost a small fortune...

F1 » Abu Dhabi Grand Prix preview


107SS2009:
richard: i think that the previous comment about marussia was a joke! there is now NO marussia. the team entry is in the name of manor f1.
The question now is, What will happen to the $60m prize money they earned by their ninth pos1tion.
Marussia are in administration so remain a legal entity until liquidated. If it didn't exist, it could not pay any creditors, nor be sued. It has ceased trading but is still twitching. Any prize money due should go in the pot which will be used to pay creditors. Well, that's the theory anyway.

F1 » Abu Dhabi Grand Prix preview


LoveF1: Only in F1..... Is Chilton not already in the Caterham camp, fighting over one of those seats?? Or has already stopped training and gone off on holiday somewhere very far away from F1? And can this be called "racing", even if Marussia manage to turn up in Abu??
Amusing also is that there are likely to be several cars in the car parks that are faster and more powerful than the F1 cars on the grid...
