F1 » What we learned at the British Grand Prix


Firestorm: Silverstone must be cursed :P because usually a driver doesn't win consecutive races here. The last time it happened was in 1999-2000 when Coulthard won the British GP back to back. Even the great Schumacher having won there in 2002 and 2004, was out of picture in the 2003 event while his team-mate Barrichello was very hot on his wheels at the 2003 race. Webber came close to win it last year. After winning it in 2012 he finished less than a second to Rosberg in the 2013 event. After qualifying it looked that Rosberg may win it again but the gearbox...Anyway he and Lewis were on different strategies so victory was not certain for Nico.
Jim Clark won it 4 times in a row (1962/3/4/5), but then he was a bloody good driver and didnt need a car with a 2 second advantage.

MotoGP » Marc VDS: No team orders, ‘time running out’ for Loi


biaggi:
FoscoJusco: Last year Pol was the best rider and won the title this year Rabat is the best rider and will win the title. Just wish in MotoGP it was the same much more the bike than the rider (although MM is a phenom) now.
Last year redding was the best rider not pol. shame he had that injury in philip island.t his yeat rabat is just the most experienced rider not the most talented.
West, Corsi, Luthi and Kallio all have more experience than Rabat. West won his first GP 2 years before Rabat had even raced in a GP.

MotoGP » Marc VDS: No team orders, ‘time running out’ for Loi


With Kallio and Rabat, Marc VDS have the most consistent pairing and the most patient. They can both work their way through the field, if necessary, and dont even need big elbows to progress. Team orders are unnecessary in this case - they both understand what is required - and with Vinales, Salom and Folger improving rapidly, this is their best chance of a title for the foreseeable future.. And, much as I like both MVDS riders, I don't believe either would do much in motogp. Livio is only hanging on because he is Belgian but it looks like the patience has run out. One good race in about 20 appearances is just not enough.

Taz:
mrfill: Interesting to hear the suggestion that Caterham's mystery consortium may be none less than Bernie and/or Red Bull. It does make sense. Have to agree with Hamilton about the Poundland trophies that were presented. They were very tacky.
Interesting but why would RBR want Caterham? They have been trying to flog STR for ages and STR is a much better team.
To release Cyril back to where he belongs so he can sort out the Renault mess. Why would RBR want to flog STR though? They have given RBR Vettel and Ricciado and are grooming Kvyat for the future. STR are doing a good job for RBR.
