F1 » Red Bull requests Virtual Safety Car rule changes

The idea of the VSC is to maintain the gaps between cars and this is done by having set times for sectors. Once in the 'final' sector i.e. just before the lights go green, the set times go out the window and it becomes like a safety car end and the leader can back up the pack. However, whereas with a safety car there is a physical line to cross before overtaking is allowed, in the case of the VSC, there is no line so once the lights go green its every man for themselves. This wrecks the principle of the VSC (of maintaining the gaps) but there is no easy solution.

MotoGP » Repsol slams Rossi for ‘unacceptable conduct’

pinkfl: Would be interesting to hear how a "small" company like repsol wangled their way into "sponsorship" of a big company like Honda. There are many more companies out there that would be delighted to put some real amounts of money into MOTOGP. Wonder if repsol have to "lay off" staff when the merchandise side of things collapse. marquez will be responsible for some poor unfortunates death if he is allowed to carry on like he has been doing up to now.
Repsol have been sponsoring bikes for a long time. The 1971 125cc championship was won by a Repsol sponsored machine and they have been faithful to Honda for 20 years now. And remember, most of the motogp merchandising is done through a VR46 company.

F1 » Red Bull requests Virtual Safety Car rule changes

Sasha Alexandrovich: Is it so friggin hard for Charly Whiting to override all team radio like in Le Mans. VSC ending in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0..... Just ditch the whole stupid VSC and introduce slow zones with an overriding team radio warning and a forced by race direction button speed limiter. F1 is trying to reinvent the wheel.
How will that stop someone backing up the pack? Limit set at, say, 160kph. Leader slows down to 50kph - pack bunches up.

F1 » Wolff: Hamilton, Rosberg tensions aired 'behind closed doors'

VegasRyder: Why does everyone pick apart Mercedes for having a #1 driver? The one who is a much better F1 "racer". ? I know many of you are Ferrari fans. Do you not think that Ferrari has a favorite As well? Of course they do and I GUARANTEE they would show it more readily if kimi actually challenged Vettel or if Vettel was in contention for the title you don't think there would be some team orders ? anyone who thinks otherwise is kidding themselves.. So why critisize Merc? Just because you hate Lewis?
Because for the 4000th time - Merc say their drivers are treated equally and free to race each other.
About as equally as the customer engines they supply

F1 » Palmer has faith Lotus-Renault situation will be resolved

4342: Well deserved a seat, who got his drive on Merit.
Merit is slang for 'daddy paid for the whole thing'..
He is a champion so is there on merit.
Maldonado won a GP2 championship so he must be there on merit too.
Quite right. Just as the 2006 GP2 champion entered F1 on merit although he did win at the first time.
Is that the one who got parachuted into a top team having been the Chosen One for a while? Unlike all the other GP2 champs who went to non-competitive teams to start. Thought so....

MotoGP » Lorenzo denies title 'pact' with Marquez

mrfill: This very thread has had 274 postings in under 7 hours. Very fishy
Nah, it's just a very polarizing and volatile issue - the kind that makes everyone speak out - even those of us who don't usually have strong enough opinions to bother.
Don't think so geoffrey. Its not that. Many new posters have exactly the same style and even repeat phrases. This is epic trolling. Not seen it on this scale in 4 years and there have been other very controversial motor sport topics with nothing like this wave of noobs.
