F1 » McLaren-Honda F1 car to run on Friday

Taipan: 35edme, I wouldn't be so sure, remember the cars of 10 years ago were using grooved tyres (to slow them down) and pit stops were slower then. OK they were having fuel stops but even then if a 2003 Ferrari could complete the Monza GP 5 minutes faster than the current cars, pound for pound that makes them faster than todays cars in my book, and they sounded a hell of a lot better too.
Also the fastest lap ever in F1 on any track is from 2004 when Juan Pablard Montoya did a lap of Monza at 162.9 mph

MotoGP » Smith: I’ve got to earn a good bike for 2016

brains: damm wifi, as I said marquez is the only rider from moto 2 class to do well in gps so far,and thats because hes a special stand out talent, no other moto 2 rider has come close to doing well in the class,I wonder if m marquez had have come up through the wsbk route would he be any slower now ?? lol, (I dont think so), talent is talent,and some guys just aint got enough of it.
In the final standings (and excluding Aleix Asparagus), 5 out the top 10 riders were from moto2 and the others are the old lags. (JL, DP, VR, AD). How well do they have to do?

F1 » Mattiacci concedes that F1 future is complex, not difficult

So, because Mercedes have managed to build a vastly superior power unit, within the rules, we must change those rules because its not fair. Is that one of the sport's core values? No, *cue stirring music* we should return to the golden age of F1 when no team dominated and all the cars were equal and no team ever went bust and no-one ever broke any rules because there were no rules and when you could buy a family ticket and have lunch at the Paddock Club at Silverstone and still get change out of a ten bob note. Tell that to the kids of today and they just laugh at you.

MotoGP » Jack Miller: MotoGP 'like sex with pants on!'

Yearby23: I'd hate to see the figures for PI and Aragon....
PI - Top KTM 252.8kph, Marquez 252.2kph, Miller 248.8kph Aragon - Top KTM 237.5kph, Marquez 233.7, Miller 228.9kph KTM faster than Marquez in both meetings. Sorry.
Ah, which rider? Miller wasn't though was he? Mainly because he's gangly and about 6 inches taller than Marquez.
Miller 175cm 60kg Marquez 180cm 61kg Smaller riders work far better on moto3 bikes. Miller is smaller and lighter.

MotoGP » Jack Miller: MotoGP 'like sex with pants on!'

Yearby23: mrfill... Vasquez and McPhee didn't win the championship because they lack the Repsol sticker. if they did imagine how outraged Repsol would have been. Also the reason Miller won at tracks when he had a top speed deficit was because he's an absolute demon on the brakes. He had to work very hard to hold off Honda's at quite a few rounds.
In 15 out of 18 races, a KTM was faster than Marquez. Ultimate speed is no guide to winning races. Miller wears Red Bull stickers and a Red Bull helmet. Clearly a huge advantage over the others with vast sponsorship in motorsport (enough to make Repsol look tiny) Repsol don't even own a circuit...

MotoGP » Jack Miller: MotoGP 'like sex with pants on!'

MrStinky: Really. Go check the stats at Sepang Top Speed Vasquez Honda 232 km/h. Miller 5th last 224 km/h Silverstone Top Speed McPhee Honda 233 km/h. Miller 14th 229 km/h Le Mans Top Speed Vasquez Honda 224 km/h. Miller 15th 218 km/h. Etc. Etc. Etc. Yeah them Honda's is real slow.
Is that relevant? I mean, in motoGP Marquez was fastest only in Assen, Motegi and Phillip Island, yet he managed to just scrape the championship (again...) And if this is such a great measure, why didn't Vasquez or McPhee win everything? In 15 of the 18 meetings a KTM was faster than Marquez and in the other 3, Miller won 2. At no meeting was Marquez's bike more than 5kph faster than Millers. Even your own selected figures prove the nonsense of the 10kph faster theory.

F1 » Fernley: F1's game plan has been exposed

@neilio I don't buy this 'in it for the technology' idea. Ferrari, McLaren and Williams are there for the long term although only Ferrari are long term road car makers. RBR are there because they are Red Bull who are marketing geniuses. I believe all these teams have committed until 2020. Mercedes are Johnny-come-latelys who bought a successful team with the intention of dominating the sport. They are well on the way to doing what Toyota, BMW and Honda failed to do. These mighty 3 manufacturers have not exactly suffered by not being in F1 for the 'technology' and if Merc were to be nobbled by rules, they too will be off (as Lauda said). They are not committed to 2016, let alone 2020 but they supply nearly half the field with PUs so have to be pandered to. MB have done nothing wrong and have kept within the rules so their view is understandable, although unfortunate for F1. The smaller teams are mostly rich men's play things, as they have been for many, many years
