F1 » Dennis points finger at Hamilton for 2007 issues


I seem to have missed the 'rewriting of history' episode. The 'troubles' of 2007 were twofold. First the inter-team handbag/toy throwing between the drivers and all those shenanigans. Secondly, the discovery of the Ferrari handbook in McLaren's possession which led to the fine and removal of points. While Hamilton was clearly involved in the former, is Ron now suggesting that lulu was involved with the latter? The one which cost his company all that money and which also cost his job. The one that got found out after Alonso released the emails. The one that was actually important rather than just histrionics..

F1 » Dennis points finger at Hamilton for 2007 issues


SWEAT: It was Lewis who begged Alonso to release the emails after asking Ron to lay his hands on those tec stuff.Lewis is no good as a driver and worse as a human being.Thanks ,your L.....eminences!
So you are suggesting that lulu got Alonso (enemy) to release information to damage Ron (ally) which ended up with Ron (ally) getting the shove and McLaren losing a ton of money. Knowing that Alonso was on his way out, why would he want to get rid of his most powerful ally, just to help his enemy? I can see him urging Ron to play dirty with Alonso in order to get him out the way - that makes some sense - but to sabotage Ron doesn't add up.

MotoGP » Emotional Marquez responds to Andorra critics


Ben1: So he moves to Andorra. Therefore he can choose to keep 99 % of the money he would pay to Spain as taxes. But he says no, he continues to pay the big money to Spain. Why he does it?
At least you actually read the article rather than the clowns who think he is moving there to avoid taxes. He will continue to pay Spanish tax as he does not wish to lose his Spanish Residence and he will also not be subject to the rule that states you have to be resident in Andorra for a certain number of days per year (to take advantage of their tax regime). Good to see he is not taking the entirely selfish view of the world which is so often the case.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez moving to Andorra?


Number76: Look at how governments squander and mismanage their citizens money! Big business and the rich/well connected get all the breaks while suckers who play by the rules take it in the...yeow! Even at 10mil per year that doesn't put MM in the truly elite category. 49% tax???? They'd get the one finger salute from me too as I crossed the border. The US will take 40% of your salary if you make over $400k per year. That's just Federal income tax. Not to mention state income tax, sales tax, property tax, capital gains tax, air transportation tax, liquor tax, cig tax, fishing and hunting licenses fees ....
Indeed, the cost of pointless wars has gone through the roof lately...

F1 » McLaren announcement set for Thursday


If this is, as we are told, contrary to Ron's decision, one hopes he will behave as professionally as his drivers have been while waiting the decision on their future. Unless he's chucked in towel already, in which case it doesn't matter. All we need now is for Martin Whitmarsh to appear like the ghost of christmas past. WHOOOOO!

MotoGP » Marc Marquez moving to Andorra?


PorkPie:
mrfill: @PorkPie Hard to see what revenue could be attracted, bearing in mind there is no income tax and virtually no corporation tax.
That's the point. You take a very small amount of tax from people who would never otherwise live there, as opposed to almost no tax, due to the economic inactivity of these havens. So they get Marc's money. Never would they have had any of it. Yet Marc will pay more (30k euro) than your average resident. More widely, it provides economic development, as these super rich people, forced to live there for five months, spend money in the local economy. It is a niche strategy. IOM is a good example of this.
It is 90 days now, not 183. Also, the economic development of 30K€ is not a lot. And Andorra can hardly be accused of economic activity. It is bristling with tax dodging companies and individuals shying away from the civic responsibilities in their home lands.

MotoGP » Jack Miller ‘going to be great MotoGP rider’


ProfessorX:
shamarone: Q: "What I want to know is, was it Repsol or Dorna who asked Honda to pick up Jack" (ooh ooh ooh) A: Dorna. (click/click, "that was easy", s1 pushes the easy button)
lolz. Yeah, but sometimes I wonder how much control/influence Repsol has over Honda in GPs. & that is a 'repsol' bike MM rides, it's barely a Honda.
Well, if it is, it goes to show that Repsol (an oil company) are far better at producing a racing motorbike than Honda (a motorbike manufacturer with 50 years racing experience). Remind us all, how many parts of the bike are made by Repsol?
