F1 » Button: Bad spell good for McLaren


sprulz: Apparently GP2 driver Joylon Palmer is in talks with F1 teams. Wonder if McLaren are one of them.
Oh, you mean Jonathan Palmer's boy? The Jonathan Palmer who owns Brands Hatch, Oulton Park, Snetterton and Cadwell Park circuits and who helped develop the McLaren F1 road car in the 90s. I think you can assume that he would have a chat with Ron.

F1 » Caterham F1 confirms change of ownership


Frazz666: Wonder if tony fernandes will pump more money into his moto2 effort now
Its not that easy to shovel vast amounts of money in moto2. Engines are stock. Frames you can almost buy at Tesco. Electric gizmos are very basic. They could spend to buy alternative riders although Zarco is rapid on a good day. Herrin is lost in moto2 and could be replaced. I expect the team may get a bit more cash for parts but they seem to be functioning pretty well at the moment. Any motogp plans are looking more realistic though. And thats not a bad thing. As for the F1 team, the wreath is on order.

F1 » Ricciardo: Drivers were against standing restarts


CarmelitoEzpeleta: What a joke, double points, standing restarts, less practice seasions, bans on testimg, V6 engines... what tye hell happened to this once great sport? If any of you love real F1 give motogp a watch, its basically what F1 used to be 15 - 20 years ago. Danger, thrills, spills, actual racing, no gimmicks, traditional circuits, only 3 or 4 competitiors from 2 teams with a realistic chance of victory..
...and if you prefer close racing, watch moto3. At the end of the last race I found myself gripping the edge of my desk tightly. Heartstopping stuff. But back to the latest Plan Bonkers, there is another downside to this. A full standing restart takes longer to set up than a rolling start and if F1 keeps exceeding the normal 2 hour limit, the TV companies will start complaining. And they are big time contributors to the show.
