MotoGP » Jack Miller: MotoGP 'like sex with pants on!'


kneedragon1962: Danny Pedrosa had his TC taken out on one corner. He fell down on the next corner... Maybe that's what they're trying to not repeat.
Pedrosa did not know the TC was out. When he opened the throttle the bike responded adversely because the TC was out, not because of any rider fault. These test for Miller are familiarisation runs to get used to the weight and balance of the bigger bike. He seems to have learnt that so the next stage is to turn on the gizmos and learn how to use them. After that his proper bike (the RS) should be ready and the real testing/learning starts.

F1 » McLaren-Honda F1 car to run on Friday


Taipan: 35edme, I wouldn't be so sure, remember the cars of 10 years ago were using grooved tyres (to slow them down) and pit stops were slower then. OK they were having fuel stops but even then if a 2003 Ferrari could complete the Monza GP 5 minutes faster than the current cars, pound for pound that makes them faster than todays cars in my book, and they sounded a hell of a lot better too.
Also the fastest lap ever in F1 on any track is from 2004 when Juan Pablard Montoya did a lap of Monza at 162.9 mph

F1 » McLaren-Honda F1 car to run on Friday


107SS2009: Someone I now just told me. “ just one more race left, just one more week going racing being provided with inferior engine programming to that of whom you pay the money for his product, and still you are prevented by him from improving it physically”.
"engine programming" is engine mapping. Parameters fed to the ECU which it processes accordingly. The comment above implies that McLaren are not allowed to use their own engine maps but are forced to use the factory provided ones. That is surely against the Technical regs. They must be allowed to use their own maps and if they cannot make a better map than someone else, it may just be their own fault for not employing the right people.

MotoGP » Jack Miller: MotoGP 'like sex with pants on!'


RDix: My new favorite rider. I love that you all hate him for acting like most 19 year olds who were just handed keys to the world would act. I'd hate to see myself at 19 in his position. I love the attitude and regardless of what the folks on here say if Marquez wasn't around he'd be the most talented rookie to come along since Lorenzo or Simoncelli. Top open class rider of 2015 either Hayden or Miller.
Vinales - just 6 days older than Miller and a WC in moto3 and 3rd in a rookie year in moto2. A proven talent.

F1 » Fernley: F1's game plan has been exposed


@neilio I don't buy this 'in it for the technology' idea. Ferrari, McLaren and Williams are there for the long term although only Ferrari are long term road car makers. RBR are there because they are Red Bull who are marketing geniuses. I believe all these teams have committed until 2020. Mercedes are Johnny-come-latelys who bought a successful team with the intention of dominating the sport. They are well on the way to doing what Toyota, BMW and Honda failed to do. These mighty 3 manufacturers have not exactly suffered by not being in F1 for the 'technology' and if Merc were to be nobbled by rules, they too will be off (as Lauda said). They are not committed to 2016, let alone 2020 but they supply nearly half the field with PUs so have to be pandered to. MB have done nothing wrong and have kept within the rules so their view is understandable, although unfortunate for F1. The smaller teams are mostly rich men's play things, as they have been for many, many years

F1 » Kaltenborn: F1’s agenda is ‘four or five names’


nealio: With the FIA abandoning governance of F1 the sport will entirely disappear and F1 will become a business along the lines of the WWF or worse. Whatever F1 will become, it won't be a sport and will not be worth following under the domination of CVC, Ecclestone and the big engine manufacturers.
Its there already. CVC will be off soon having bled F1 for years and Ecclestone wont be around for much longer. Mercedes are not exactly the F1 stalwarts having only had their team for 4 years, but they have bought their way to the top and they want to stay there. Ferrari would love to be there, McLaren have gone to bed with Honda and Renault have their RBR deal. Williams are the exception. Their motives are more sporting than commercial. but will now end up as a Merc B-team as they need the power units. Haas has already nestled up to Ferrari which completes the set. So the big teams can race without the ignominy of finishing last. Job done.
