F1 » Alfa Romeo being pitched for F1 return

mrfill: The Mito is no looker. Its just a Fiat Panda with a new frock on and cross eyes. The Guilietta is a bit better and the 4C is very pretty. And that 's the full range. Hardly a product.
The range is set to grow by at least 8 models over the next 3 years. All will be rear wheel drive or AWD with 50/50 weight distribution. First is the Giulia in 2016 - 3-series competitor with Ferrari-powered range topper (Cloverleaf) - Google it for images and tell me you don't like it! Then there'll be a new Giulietta and larger exec model (5-Series size) followed by various coupes, convertibles and 4C/8C type sports cars. I think they're even throwing in SUVs. There's your product range mate.
The Guilia, Guilio, 6c and Alfetta look superb. But.... that SUV thing is utterly hideous in a Nissan Joke way.... Thanks for the alert..

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 » ITV poised to swoop if BBC pulls out of F1 deal

Challenger: "... by the BBC's large-scale cutbacks which..." which don't include cutting back on the exuberant, read extortionate, salaries paid to newsreaders, presenters, executives etc etc. A corporation that continues to abuse the finances it receives via tax and a corporation that allowed one its own to rape and abuse children on an industrial scale.
Welcome to Mr Trump.

F1 » Alfa Romeo being pitched for F1 return

Taz: Whichever team takes on that iconic brand while suddenly find their cars will refuse to start randomly and catch fire on occasion with no warning. Still they make beautiful cars...apart from the Alfa Romeo 75 which was uglier than a war wound. I'm sure sunny will be along soon to reprimand me :)
The Mito is no looker. Its just a Fiat Panda with a new frock on and cross eyes. The Guilietta is a bit better and the 4C is very pretty. And that 's the full range. Hardly a product offensive. They'll be digging up the corpse of Lancia next. Then we'd expect the car to rust into pieces before it reaches the finishing line....

F1 » Dennis retains 'robust' attitude on McLaren sponsor ‘rate card’

mrfill: Chandon is a Diageo brand, like Johnnie Walker so not much 'attraction' needed there, Force India are also very likely to become part of Diageo within a few days.
Chandon Is owned by the same group as Tag Heuer LVMH.
Chandon is owned by Moet Hennesey (a subsidiary of LVMH) and 34% of Moët Hennessy is owned by............ Diageo
