MotoGP » POLL: Marquez or Miller to win Moto3 title?


UserM4: Alex is blazingly fast. And he'll only get faster. Miller's is a prick. To me, he's exciting to watch. Reminds me so much of Marco Simoncelli. And he's done well for himself on a KTM against those Hondas. Can't wait to see him get up to speed next to Cal Crutchlow. For me, it's Miller. Yes, I expect a lot of disagrees. I still love you guys because we're all MotoGP fans and around here, in SoCal, I don't know a single GP fan. :( But MotoGP fans are like sex. Even when it's bad, it's still pretty good.
Sex with a motoGP fan must be off the scale :)

F1 » Mercedes set to make F1 engine freeze compromise


Normally they would have to produce 32 units at the beginning of the season (4 per car x 4 teams x 2 cars) and what is being proposed is to build 16 at the start and 16 halfway through 2015. Each engine still has to be built and dyno tested so where does the increased cost come from? Development that they are doing anyway? If Merc only intend to produce 8 engines, it shows Toto's sincerity is about as good as his arithmetic.

F1 » Mercedes set to make F1 engine freeze compromise


I imagine the engineering department have been on the phone to say they can find an extra 50bhp if there is an engine thaw. After all, any un-freeze applies equally to all PU makers. And as for "You cannot track test it because you are only allowed to use one-spec of engine only, so you have to do all the dyno running and make - in our case - eight powerful and reliable engines. This is going to cost a fortune." - pretty bad news for the 3 customers then. Of course, they could cut their cost substantially by not introducing a revised unit half way through the season. It isn't compulsory.

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


richard: tommy. why can you not differentiate between red bull, the title sponsor, and red bull racing, a team that has three owners and was based on an independent team , arden motorsport. rbr is owned by three specified owners...marko, horner and mateschitz (through his holding company). ther team is an independent company and is not included in the assets of the sponsor company, red bull. its a bit like claiming that vodafone owned vodafone mclaren... .
Only if Ron Dennis owned 50% of vodafone, which I don't believe he ever did.... If the main sponsor is owned by one of the main team owners (even through a holding company), it is not very independent. I mean, if DM decided to withdraw RB sponsorship from RBR, would he disagree with himself?

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


richard: conger. you really should research the engine supply and costing dictates already in existence! mr fill. red bull is a SPONSOR! red bull racing is a TEAM, and provides no monetary assistance to str! and if you look at other teams, you will also find that some major sponsors also provide sponsorship to lower level teams. for instance, have a look at santander!
Red Bull is not just a sponsor though, it is the OWNER of both teams so plastering its name on its cars and bunging the team some money is not exactly sponsorship. I don't imagine Mercedes charge themselves for every Merc insignia on their car for instance

F1 » F1: McLaren ‘learned a lot’ from Austin


@oldgit I don't think they've 'sacked' Button yet but Sam Michael certainly is out and, as sporting director, would be heavily involved in the design. He joined from Williams, after their worst season ever. This season and last + 2004 are the worst McLaren seasons in 30 years. Pure coincidence. Red Bull's design handle (Adrian Newey) has departed off to Special Projects (oooh!) so they are nowhere near as powerful now. IF Alonso does join and IF the Honda unit is really good and IF Newey's departure affects RBR, they should be a lot more competitive. A bit iffy though.
