F1 » First pictures of interim McLaren Honda F1 car


richard:
mrfill: It may just be a not very good picture but it looks pretty ugly to me, much as most F1 cars nowadays. Fat as a pig round the middle and with a gentlemans sausage dangling from the front. Very stylish. Hope it makes up in speed what it lacks in looks
it is just the current car! slightly different engine cover. no fatter as it is using current radiator set up etc. bears little or no resemblance to the 30.
I realise that richard. Its probably just a Honda sticker as well. There's a 1.0 Nissan Micra engine under that cover :) Marvels of engineering but now nightmares of aesthetics. I think they stopped being pretty about 10 years ago.

F1 » Racing in Abu Dhabi 'crucial' for Caterham F1


The statutory duties of an administrator are 1. to rescue the company as a going concern 2. if 1 is not possible, to increase the amount available for creditors compared to immediate winding up. 3 if 2 is not possible, to dispose of the assets and distribute the spoils amongst the creditors The administrator cannot prefer a particular creditor because they were appointed by that creditor and the primary creditor is always HMRC. This is an attempt at number 2.

F1 » Ecclestone: ‘No point’ F1 targeting young fans


As Bernie doesn't want any fans under 70, how about making the sport appeal more to the old fartery. Let's have a minimum age for drivers of 60 (to allow some young blood in). Lauda, Prost, Mansell, Stewart, Marko, Newey, Moss, Piquet, Andretti, Fittipaldi all tottering around would make a breathtaking event. Rather more breathtaking to some than others.... The crowds would flock to see them (if their doctors permitted)

MotoGP » Smith: I’ve got to earn a good bike for 2016


papcicles:
TF2: I had to omit some of your comment due to the silly comment system. Yes, I agree with everything you say, but my answer was in context of a reply. Practically, what I say is wrong, but in theory Tech3 could partner with any manufacturer they wish. As for them being a 'feeder' team (orig reply), that is true, in part, but only if Yamaha (or Dorna, or sponsor) need it and often not for both bikes. Without the previous rule that a rookie season cannot be done on a factory bike, then this factory-feeder role is event less concre
I can only think of Spies who went from Tech3 to the factory team and the rookie rule was a stupid short lived rule. Lorenzo didn't have to join tech3 when he arrived in 2008. The satellite teams are there to allow the big boys to have more of their top bikes on the grid to score more manufacturer points.
