F1 » Channel 4 to televise F1 as BBC cancels contract


Taz:
meldrew:
Taz: Good news that ITV didn't get it. I wonder if some of the team got transferred over? would be a shame to lose DC but EJ and McNish disappearing would be no loss. Good move by channel 4 who had become a bit irrelivant.
Yep. I wouldn't miss Jordan or McNish. Suzie as well, for that matter. But DC has been brilliant (contrary to my early expectations), and Lee would be a loss. She should have been fronting the show since Jake Wotsit left.
Good shout about Perry, she was a poor addition and Leigh Mackenzie could have done the job better.
Oh God, please don't let Ben Edwards get transferred. If you must have a shouty man, hire Brian Blessed. Edwards made Jonathon Ledger sound good, which is some feat.

MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Bradley Smith Q&A


TrueFan: I'm amazed that anyone would get to this level believing that you can ride faster when you're angry. You can't do anything better when you're angry. Your body releases all kinds of chemicals, not just adrenalin, but cortisol and other things that make your movements more jerky...not what you want when your going fast. At least he figured it out.
Some older riders still have problems on this front. :)

F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2015 - 3rd


richard: well, that is a reasonably fair assessment. so the top position is between max and seb. max will probably get it but i do feel that he over drove the car a bit, and whereas he did very well, i dont really know if he deserves top spot. still, it might be a tie?
The only 2 drivers with personality and a sense of humour. Fair enough.

F1 » Channel 4 to televise F1 as BBC cancels contract


serious4play: Another indication that this sport is loosing its fan base and going into decline when our main national tv channel drops it. Bbc would only drop it if viewing numbers dropped, sorry f1 but this sport has turned into a borefest.
The BBC dropped it because they have a huge hole in their budget - £500m + - as they now don't get the money for the over 75s free licence. Nothing to do with viewing figures. Its the BBC in serious decline.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 4th


ZeFrenchAngle: Since this Crash article is mentioning again the Rossi-Marquez Sepang incident in relation to Dani's conduct after it, there is something I would love to know more about. However, what fascinated me was that statement he made immediately after the race, after watching a replay of the race incidents and being asked his opinion. He said : "The problem is that some riders do stupid things in Moto3, and then in Moto 2, and Race Direction does not punish them. Then it is more difficult to deal with them when they are in MotoGP" Ouch !!! Now, I would have loved to have had Dani expand a LOT more on this ............. :-)
Only 1 rider has raced in Moto3, moto2 and motoGP. Maverick Vinales.

F1 » Renault: We genuinely thought we'd done a good job


MaddMe: An extract from tj13 This appears to shut down the Red Bull PU development programme, given that Illien is now working for Renault. However, in the recent F1 2016 sporting regulations, an insertion was made for next year which states "Other than any parts agreed by the FIA at their absolute discretion to be solely associated with power unit installation with different teams, each manufacturer may supply only one specification of homologated power unit during any given calendar year" This clause allows a manufacturer to submit more than one specification of power unit for homologation. The previous version of the sporting regulations was absolute on this matter. Appendix 4.2, "A manufacturer may homologate no more than one specification of power unit".
Separate development would require a separate token allocation. RBR would have to be recognised as a manufacturer to get an allocation.

F1 » Ecclestone insists: BBC can't leave contract early


And if they don't pay your huge fee? Then what? They wait for you to sue them for the balance of contract - which won't be cheap - and then look at how much they save by not sending a production team and half of Scotland to 20 distant locations for the next 3 years. The BBC is having over £500m cut to deal with next year (as they now have to pay for licences for the over 75s) and F1 stands no chance there. So, sorry Bernie. They CAN leave the contract and they almost certainly will. The Chancellor has virtually guaranteed that.

F1 » Ecclestone insists: BBC can't leave contract early


TeamGreatEngland: Think bernie should think of the fans first. We have put up with only half a series live and if ITV can do all live then he should be thanking ITV and kissing their butt. I know some have sky but most dont have sky
If you're the sort of fan who can't afford the top Hublot watch, a Maybach, private jet and a villa on the French Riviera, Bernie is not interested in you. An 85 year old multi-billionaire doesn't think too far into the future. ITV will not do all races live. They don't have the cash to splash.
