MotoGP » Mika Kallio - Q&A


@Zamb I don't think Mika would get an offer for GP - he's 31 and a bit old for any competitive ride. Also he is in a top M2 team, that he likes, has a crew he likes, a bike he likes and he is winning races. He could well get the title this year too. For Mika, it doesn't get any better than that. No move would provide the complete set. He realises that and is happy to stay and good luck to him. As an ambassador for moto2, he is ideal (more than be said for some others)

MotoGP » Red Bull increases Honda backing


Spending vast amounts of money in motor sport does not necessarily guarantee success. Witness Toyota's effort in F1. Outspent every team for years and never even got a win. Ducati must have spent a fortune over the last few years and still get nowhere. Honda spent loads in F1 on their own car but never had much success. But when Honda spend in motogp, they spend it effectively. Bit like Red Bull. They back winners but they also heavily sponsor the Red Bull Rookies. They have backed Honda for 9 years and now have decided to increase their backing to get their adverts on the bikes as well as the riders. 2016 should (t&cs apply) even out the bikes with standard software. No daft different 'classes' just bikes. Sure, some will have extra fancy bits like pneumatic valves but they won't have the software advantage. As for TC, they all have the same thing (in the ECU) so its equal. Advantage no-one. Once back to a single class, at least the factories will not have anything like the electro

F1 » Caterham set to counter-sue employees


This is no surprise. The 'team' doesn't employ these people, its a different company who then provides the team with a 'service'. Expect the employing company to be based outside the UK and the contracts to be subject to the law of somewhere you may never have heard of. By accusing the 'team' rather than the employer, the workers have made a mistake. However, a claim for damages has to be based on the financial damage to the company by the statement, which may be considered to be zero. One thing is certain. The only winners will be the lawyers.

MotoGP » Red Bull increases Honda backing


Talent, It rather depends on what the software processes. You may have masses of data but if the software does not access it, it is worthless. Like having 500Gb of movies in mp4 format without having an mp4 player to use it. How the standard software works and what data it does use is a mystery but just because you have loads of set up data may not help. Neither Honda nor Yamaha have raced with standard software. Their race data has been gathered using their bespoke software and whether that will be of any use is the nub of the matter. I certainly hope that the additional data gathered will be worthless and that the 4 factory machines will be reined back a bit.
