MotoGP » More UK viewers watched BSB than MotoGP?

I've watched the BT coverage online since it started. High def picture and all. Even got round running crappy Silverlight on linux. I recently upgraded to Infinity2 (FTTC) thinking I would be able to use my Youview box to watch. FAIL.... You MUST have the YV box hard wired to the router to make it work (it needs IGMPv3) and they are on different floors so its not practical. So I'm back to watching online. Like sasquatchBob and shrimpling, I approve of the coverage, especially the vastly improved m2 and m3 efforts and the magazine show (which is excellent). Huewin is irritating but then so was Cox. Ryder continually bumbles on about what happened aeons ago, but then he always does. At least Gavin Emmett gets to cover some sessions. I don't think I'm alone and many BT punters use the online service rather than the IPTV option. These are not included in the figures though. The problem is nothing to do with Marquez or a sudden resurgence of BSB but the appalling way BT have implemented th

MotoGP » Marquez: So difficult to win them all...

9times: Supermario, MM has a massive advantage over the rest of the guys. You must be blind not to see hot that RCV accelerates in curves. The acceleration and speed of that Honda is simply insane. I was totally blown away when I saw how MM is playing with others by simply controlling the speed of his bike. I was becoming a huge fan of MM, but i started to lose interest in him after seeing how he pretends to be "All that", but he's not. We'll see how good he is comes 2016. only to more years, till then he can win as many titles and break as many record as he wants, but he won't exceed 3 titles until then. Time will tell.... I am just hoping that Yamaha and Ducati bring something to the game, otherwise it will be the same stale hash !!
125 title moto2 title motogp title (2013) and you say he won't exceed three titles, implying he will not be champion this year. Well, you are wrong (yet again)

MotoGP » Marquez: So difficult to win them all...

ninja07: MM is a top rider but the bikes have too much traction control **** these days unlike the 500cc era so you can't say he's better than mamola,schwantz etc I think moto gp is a really boring series especially if a rider can win 10 races in a row,and it show when MM took out Dani last season knocked a wheel sensor off and he couldn't control the bike,too reliant on electrics to get the power down.
Oh, so the 500s didn't have traction control? And when the sensor was knocked off, Pedrosa didn't know so assumed the bike would behave normally but with 260bhp and no TC he stood no chance. Bit like saying the rider is no good when the brakes suddenly fail and he crashes.

F1 » F1 2014 driver salaries published – but who earns most?

Salan: These figures don't include Winnings and sponsorships. If you look at Forbes publications it has Fernando and Lewis tied at £32 million for 2014. Not to mention the current negotiations in progress with some drivers. I wouldn't read to much into these figures.
Don't the Forbes figures include endorsements and money for opening supermarkets etc? These figure are reputedly the salaries only and probably exclude points bonuses, unless they know who is going to score what points up to the end of the season.

MotoGP » Colin Edwards steps down at Forward

Mark53: I'm surprised they didn't bring in another over rated, under performing Brit to take his seat. There aren't enough mediocre British riders out there. We need more! Funny, three races in the USA and one US rider. One Brit race and shyte loads of mediocre Brit riders. Makes you wonder.
What makes me wonder is where the 3rd race in USA is going to be. And as for forgetting that Nicky Hayden is from the USA (he did compete at COTA) is really showing a poor grasp of reality.

MotoGP » Marquez: So difficult to win them all...

Grendlehop: Totally agree with Tomco. What is this recent obsession with Miller? Terol was quite good in the freshman class, Cortese too, but did they destroy the Moto2 field last season? How's the domination going this year for them? Folks get WAY too excited WAY too early. Let's just enjoy it while it lasts.
Miller's first podium was his win at Qatar this year. So the obsession is indeed very recent. He's good on the tiny m3 bike this year though but that's all you can say. I thought Salom would have trounced everyone in moto2 because of his racecraft but it hasn't happened. Wherever Miller ends up next year will be no guarantee of success. He is clearly talented and has good race craft but so did Salom. If he does end up on a proddy Honda he may well take some time to get used to rolling around without a hope of winning. It must be a bit demoralising.
