MotoGP » Circuit of Wales plan moves a step forward

Ah - the Great White Elephant circuit rears its head again. Still no sign of the builders yet then? And I wonder how much the price has risen since the last time. It started off at £200m in 2011 and was last heard of getting quite close to £400m - without a brick being laid. It should break the £1bn barrier by the time its finished. And then the locals will complain about the noise and traffic and get the place shut down. Still, it keep the civil servants busy for the time being.

MotoGP » Marquez destroys lap record for Silverstone pole

Challenger: In F1 the viewing public get to see the top drivers for a whole hour of qualifying (barring any clusterfuc@s for said drivers) where as in MotoGP it's just fifteen minutes. I don't think we're getting value for money here.
You get FP3 (45 mins) + Q1 (15 mins) + q2 (15 mins) in motogp In F1 you get Q3 (18 mins) + Q2 (15 mins) + Q1 (12 mins) Motogp 75 mins F1 45 mins An additional 66% time for motogp it appears.

F1 » Max Chilton reveals Haas F1 talks

Tomco: Come on now. Is he really that bad ? Finished almost every race albeit at the back. Until hes put in a competitive car its hard to judge him. Lets face it if your daddy came up with the money to get you an F1 drive, you wouldnt turn it down, would you ?
oh come on! if he was even a bit of a good driver he would have been on someones list. and coupled with dads money, he would have been ahead of some of the current drivers. but what does that tell you? money is just not the only criteria for a drive.
Richard, I never had you down as an admirer of Maldonado :)

MotoGP » MotoGP Silverstone - Free Practice (1) Results

samas: Thank God for tv coverage and the net. I remember paying 10 bob for enterance fee for myself and my car the UGP it was I think 7 and 6 pence for a bike. Me and a few mates would go up the night before pick the best spot to park bring our own food and drink have a great p*ss up and grab the best viewing spot before the crowd arrived and if I could get the car close to the road I'd sit on the roof of the car. Ah yes those were the good old days.
...back in the days when you could buy a Triumph Bonneville, insure and tax it and still get change out of a fiver... :)

F1 » Red Bull waiting on Renault for answers

107SS2009: Last year Renault and Mercedes have started a joint venture collaboration on road cars involving a spend of five hundred million each, In my opinion Mercedes are most unlikely to upset Renault by supplying engines to RBR unless Renault gives them the green light.
MB are spending about 500m€ a year on their F1 team alone from a revenue of 140bn. Renault's revenue is around 40bn so they are very much the junior partner and will do as they're told!!!
