F1 » ‘I don’t care’ if double points decides F1 title – Rosberg


JunglistF1: I know if one of the Mercedes drivers wins it will be a hollow victory. It won't be hollow for the one who has comprehensively beaten his team mate when it counts, on a Sunday. Unless of course some of you come from a land where 4 wins is greater than 10 wins and 2 DNFs are more than 3 DNFs. I get that some of you might not like Lewis and that is fine but the lengths you go to to try and discredit anything he does is mind-blowing.
Heaven forbid then that a champion should get the title with 5 wins and 1 DNF when the next man has 6 wins and 2 DNFs. Yes, 2008 was a hollow victory for Hamilton.

F1 » Horner: F1 rules used to change to slow Red Bull


Given that all Merc engines are identical, the large gap between the cars must be down to either aero (better packaging), fuel or software. The customer teams got engines late in the day and were not able to master the packaging as well. For next year, they are presumably able to correct this. Fuel may be responsible for some advantage but only a couple of %. Which leaves software. Tweaking software can produce a far more efficient unit and MB have developed theirs better than their customers. MB are not obliged to reveal any tweaks and can maintain any advantage easily. You can equalise the output (measured through FIA benchtests) of the basic unit but as soon as you run the bespoke software, it is a different story. /cont

MotoGP » Suzuki’s new MotoGP ‘adventure’ starts now


This sounds like an early Christmas present and thank you to de Puniet for the work done this year, but thats fair enough. They have 2 cracking riders for 2015 and with only a year before The Big Change they can, hopefully, develop the bike into a potential winner ready for the 2016 season when all the open/factory/crt twaddle finally goes. The future of motoGP is looking rather better than F1.

MotoGP » Suzuki’s new MotoGP ‘adventure’ starts now


brains: no im afraid as good as these young guys are,im one of those guys that dont believe the trend that if you win a few moto2/3 races you should get a good moto gp ride. marquez is the only guy that has done it, and hes special all you gotta do to get a top bike in gps is to be spanish
The other moto2 riders (Smith, p Espargaro, Iannone and Bradl) are 6th, 7th 9th and 10th and are all in the exact zone where satellite riders should be. Redding is top rider in the open class. Not particularly poor showing by any of them and only one of them is Spanish... The ones out of their zone are Bautista and Crutchlow, neither whom competed in moto2/3

F1 » Horner: F1 teams not here to sponsor each other


107SS2009: Mrfill, As I said the possibility of the FIA reclaiming the commercial rights back is not only real but a big possibility as witnessed by the scrambling of CVC offering to the three teams complaining, again (WHY) is as I explained. And yes, the commercial rights of F1 belongs to the teams and the FIA.
I suspect the amount of annual revenue to CVC is enough to make it worthwhile to bung a small team several millions to keep them going just to keep the numbers above the magic 16. Perhaps another 'mystery consortium'. Even 100m€ for a couple of years would be worth it.

F1 » Horner: F1 teams not here to sponsor each other


107SS2009:
OLDRACER23: I agree with Horner -- Eccelstone has made billions off of race teams and t.v. for decades -- he needs to put a bit back in.
I don't agree with the last parts of both of your sentences. BE needs put nothing back in, if that happens it will only be a stop gap, (which is already being activated) what is needed to save F1 racing is for both him and CVC to go and the commercial rights be returned to their rightful owners.
CVC want out although they have missed the boat. The share issue plan has been scuppered. And even if they do sell, it will only get picked up by another parasitic crowd who will want to replicate CVC's dracula job. I'm not sure who you mean as 'rightful owners' of the commercial rights. Not the teams please, especially with this years champ being their for 'brand recognition' purposes only. Its one fine mess...

F1 » F1: ‘I’m just going to work my arse off’ – Hamilton


Ponty: Talking about best cars. My 2 cents:
Quite invalid unless you assume the driver makes no difference, in which case all drivers are about average. This year the Mercs have clearly been vastly superior to the rest of the field and any 2 of the top 10 drivers could have achieved a 1-2 in the WDC Last time it happened was 1996 when Hill and Villenueve romped away in a near unbeatable car.
