MotoGP » Marc Marquez clears up F1 talk


RaceRoad: whats with F1? who wants to be part of the vacuumcleaner sport.! this was the same with Rossi years ago and even Rossi said: motogp is my sport they kep posting these nonsense!!! you would realy think mm jumps to F1? he breaks record after record and is on his way of winning the title twice! tssssss
They may have kept posting these nonsense because Rossi took part in Ferrari test sessions and performed well. Marquez simply said he would like a go in an F1 car - not a test or anything formal, just a few laps. Given that sort of offer, few would say no.

MotoGP » Smith impressed by Circuit of Wales plans


JedPB67: I don't want to seem like a Negative Nancy here but can anyone actually see this whole idea working out of a new circuit, especially at this cost? Plus there's the law suit Silverstone have raised to do with something about government money being used in aid of building it. If it works, fair play because it looks awesome and I'd love to race it but it has a whole feel of Donington Park's F1 plans about it from a few years ago.
Well done for working that out. The fuss Silverstone have made involves loan guarantee money lent on the basis of 'track development'. The money has been paid to Dorna to grab the rights from SIlverstone (who signed up for 10 years in 2009). Not a brick has been laid yet and there have been planning problems. Like Wembley, it could be made to work - at a price - but who will pay? De Lorean isn't around any more....

F1 » Hamilton/Mercedes contract talks on hold


richard: gilles. of course you cant compare drivers from different eras. and that is my point. sky/rgt claiming that lulu is going to be the most successful british driver of all time, just cannot hold water. clark did not always have the best car, but lulu DID have the best car, yet still failed to exploit it . now take keke, he did not have the best car, but won a wdc, and schumi did not have the best car for all the years he was driving, but won. as have many other drivers in the past. nowadays, contracts dont allow drivers to race in other categories, but a driver who is capable of winning in many other formulae, is a far better driver than one who drives and wins in just one formula, no matter what it is. i would even put loeb as a far better driver than many on the f1 scene!
.. and yet Loeb was refused a super licence in 2009 when he may have got a seat at STR. Nowadays a foetus can get one with a couple of milk tokens it seems :)

WSBK » Bimota confirms WSBK exit


ProfessorX:
MartinJSUK: You can't have one rule for big companies and one rule for small ones. The whole principle of Superbike racing is that they are modified versions of road-going bikes, unlike the dedicated racing bikes of MotoGP. Homoglation rules prevent teams from building expensive over-powered 'racing specials' which are not within reach of the general public. I hope Bimota are back for 2015 with a legitimate entry.
the racing bikes in MotoGP can be beaten by the road going bikes in WSBK with the same tires. Your argument doesn't hold any water unless you get rid of traction control and allow a larger variety of tires.
