F1 » F1: Wolff praises ‘very impressive’ Rosberg


107SS2009: While Lowey P is watching his shadow and only allowed to talk when he is asked questions, both Toto and Lauda are in a race with each other to say something, both trying to outdo each other. Just notice when one of them says something, the other will match him.
I guess in the Mercedes pantomime, Paddy will be playing Cinderella and Toto and Niki will be the ugly sisters. :)

MotoGP » Alex Marquez makes MotoGP debut - alongside Marc!


Why do people suppose that Repsol Honda will select a rider based on their surname? Honda are there to win and will sign the best available riders, as they have always done. Its not like they need a bit of a PR boost or are short of sponsorship. If Alex cleans up in moto2, he may get added to HRCs wish list but even that will not guarantee him a Repsol ride.

MotoGP » Double trouble! Alex rides with Marc for MotoGP debut


qwerty1: Favoritism to an entirely new level. Whoever has had a motogp test ride for winning the lowest class before? Not even moto2 winners get this treat, every time, if at all. Whilst everyone here appears to be reveling in the "history" etc, I think it is a bad move Dorna/Honda to allow this to happen. Had Miller won it on Sunday, and not be going to motogp anyway, he wouldn't have got this from some other team. Honda and Dorna, perfect bedfellows.
Of course he would, if he had a brother who was a motogp world champ and if he had won Hondas first moto3 manufacturers championship. But he is only a runner up with no brother. Besides, he is going to motogp so will get a whole season of riding a big bike.

MotoGP » Redding rides ‘very different’ RC213V


Perenialnovice: I think the worst thing for the production Honda's this years was Stoner saying was only .3 a lap slower than the works kit. I can only guess in that test they had a works engine turned down to simulate what power they would give the customer bike. In the end they detuned it too much.
Except it was Nakamoto who came out several times with the '0.3s' comment.. It was also Nakamoto who stated that the lap time gap was reduced to just 0.1s when running the softer spec rear tyre.

MotoGP » Jack Miller: It’s out of this world!


JedPB67:
Ah choo. Rossi's no 1 sneeze!: ". If anyone could rely on their passport it would be Spaniards followed by Italians." How many Brits in MotoGP and when was the last time a Brit won a race? The Spanish (in particular) and Italians have huge depths of talent - they've earned their rides.
And which championship have all the talented British riders come through? That'll be Spain then, or in the exception of Lowes, from winning a World Supersport title.
Crutchlow can be another exception then.

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.
