F1 » Irvine: Double points embarrassing for F1


Having done 148 races, driven for Ferrari and coming 3rd in the WDC, his opinion is formed with some experience. It also bears a strong resemblance to the opinion of the current champion. All these interviews start somewhere and then get syndicated world wide. This one happened to start in the Belfast Telegraph, the next Vettel interview may be done by the Ulan Bator Bugle and that too would get syndicated. .

F1 » Ferrari power unit unveiled


aldo2654: Indycars are the fastest single seater car on the planet, 220 - 250 mph approx. OK, they are really boring, I would rather watch paint dry.
And for a million quid or so you can get a two seat, fully road legal car with air-con and radio that has been timed at 267mph on a track. Take one seat out to make it a single seater and it might even make 268mph...

MotoGP » Honda vows MotoGP withdrawal over ECU plans


I doubt Honda's marketing department will appreciate the loss of the huge amount of free world wide advertising that motogp provides. If they do leave, they'll be back in 2 years once they off load the racing budget to marketing or find some other accounting wheeze. I can't see them handing all the glory and coverage on a plate to their main rival. That would be a loss of face - a very important Asian concept - and is fairly unlikely. Suzuki will be back in 2015 and if the control ECU is adopted early it may even encourage Kawasaki or Aprilia to field teams, especially if Honda are out the picture. So, while I think they may leave for a season or two, it could be very good for motogp racing by bringing in other prototype builders. Motogp should be the pinnacle of racing but good racing needs good competition and their big spending has killed the competition.

F1 » Sky claims live monopoly on ten rounds


@drg I, along with 6.8 million others, have BT internet but I do not buy sky. F1 pioneered this route by allowing a pay channel to acquire exclusive rights to some races. To get F1 on sky is now £43.50/month minimum. To get motoGP if you have sky is £12/month. In both cases the cost is too high because the overpaid nancies who kick a ball around for a couple of hours a week must be provided for.

F1 » Sky claims live monopoly on ten rounds


Having exclusive coverage of all races rather eliminates the competition for best coverage, so the 'award' means nothing. I feel that the sky race commentary is vastly better than the BBC with their shouting man and 'Interesting' Coulthard. Coulthard is spectacularly dull on the grid walk. On tech commentary, about equal. Ted Kravitz and Gary Anderson both cover the subjects intelligently. For pundits, I find both sides pretty tedious. Sky with Simon 'I like golf' Lazenby and the Hinge and Bracket pairing of Hill/Herbert are crushingly dull. The BBC team of Jordan/Coulthard become very tiring after a couple of minutes constantly trying to out do each other and creepily letching around Suzi Perry who they try to belittle as often as possible. The rest of the crews (people like Davidson, McKenzie, Pinkham etc) are fairly evenly matched. Overall. neither is brilliant but sky probably gets my vote just on race commentary. Disappointing really
