MotoGP » British MotoGP to Circuit of Wales!

I'm sure it will be lovely and in 12 months time fans will love driving down the new motorway, the new high speed rail link or arriving at the new international airport and checking in to one of the the numerous new hotels before venturing to the track, past the glorious green painted slag heaps where for only a weeks wages you may be able to see some distant specks through a thick mist (assuming the weather is fine) trying to stay on the tarmac. I'm sure this will be as popular as holding the World Cup in Qatar in mid-summer and no-one would be so stupid as to do that. Yakky dar.

F1 » F1 driver of the year so far….. revealed

MikeLite: . ....And before some of you go " yes but this car doesn't suit him" a true champion would have rectified that after the first couple of races. Truth is he is getting his ass whipped by a relative newcomer who nobody really rated. Imagine if Hamilton or Alonso were his team mates?
Rather like the car didn't suit Hamilton in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013? A true champion would have rectified that after the first couple of races, to quote a phrase...

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.

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.
