F1 » Mercedes ‘already selling power units at a loss’

107SS2009: The question is, does the FIA and FOM has a legal right to the following, (A) knowing what a F1 manufacturer spends on his F1 effort? (B) Imposing a number of teams that a manufacturer must supply? (C) That a manufacturer must supply a particular team? (D) Imposing a price tag on what manufacturer sells to others?. ......
There is no problem in fixing a price tag. This has always been the case in moto3 and the prices are in the public domain. The FIA wanted a price cap but were persuaded otherwise. This gave the manufacturers carte blanche to spend and charge whatever they wanted. And they did. The makers could have built a unit to sell at, say, 10m€ and sell it at a profit if sale price had been part of the original spec. Its way too late now to start imposing price cuts and any enforced cut would certainly be legally challenged and rightly so.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi appeals Sepang penalty

Tetley: Why are so many posters still arguing about who did what, and why and to whom ? All that was fully aired many threads ago. The topic of this thread is about VR appealing to the CAS, but few posters are actually debating that step in the process. The Rules of the sport are that VR has the option of seeking independant opinion and that is what he is doing . With the World Championship crown probably depending on the outcome it is the correct thing to do, and hopefully it will draw a line under the whole dispute.
Do you really think a line will be drawn and everything will be back to normal? I suspect, regardless of the outcome, this one will drone on for ever...

MotoGP » Kent: We go to Valencia with confidence

If Kent manages to lose the title, it will make things a bit tense next year when he and Oliveira are team mates next year in moto2... Danny only need a 14th place but if he goes into the race with that as his target it could all come undone. Over-caution is his biggest threat. His record at Valencia on moto3 is good (a first and a 4th), Oliveira has never got higher than 8th, but past statistics mean nought and he needs to ride like a champ and be smart. And keep well clear of Hanika...... :)

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi appeals Sepang penalty

fann: A question of interest. Please only answer if you know the real answer and give evidence. In the 5 days post PI race before Rossi's outburst, how many journalists and VR fans made comment that Marqez was interferring with Rossi's race. I know many attacked Iannone for not letting Rossi come third, but I don't recall anything until VR brought it up in the pre race press conference at Malaysia. I recall most comments were of what a fantastic race it was at PI.
Well, it was Rossi himself who said he thought he was being held up - after watching the replay several times, not at the time. The exact quote.. “If we have another race like Phillip Island we have to speak with him, with Marquez, because during the race it was more difficult to understand, but after when I saw the race later it was very clear that he play with us very much," Rossi said.
