F1 » COTA boss in support of more US races

"because no one likes to wake up in the morning and already know the result of a sporting event" The main base of F1 fans are in Europe and the above applies to the races in Australia, China, Malaysia and Japan. We cope. In the UK the main TV provider is the BBC who can only show half the races live. We cope. If you want F1 to really succeed in the US you need US teams, US drivers, US administration, US tracks and no Bernie. You may have to wait a while....

MotoGP » Rossi accuses Marquez of helping Lorenzo

Perhaps Rossi is winding up Marquez so he will dart off into the distance and keep out the way of the two title leaders. That way the maximum points Lorenzo could get is 20, rather than 25. You can bet that Rossi's outburst was meticulously planned though. Interesting too, seeing this thread has more comments than all the F1 threads over 2 weeks put together. :)

F1 » COTA boss in support of more US races

Mark :
Taz: No country should have more than one race or you'll end up like MotoGP with 4 races in Spain in 2015.
It all depends on the size of the country. The U.S. has about six times as many people as the UK or 30 times as many as Belgium. The state of California is bigger than most countries that have a F1 race.
I believe it is more important to base the races in places that attract fans and that have good tracks rather than a country with a large area or population. This concept is alien to the commercial rights holder however.

MotoGP » MotoGP monitoring haze at Sepang

Blazin: Indonesians stop burning forests. Its bad for your kids, its bad for you, its bad for your neighbouring countries, its just bad pollution for the whole world. STOP BURNING YOUR FORESTS!
It costs $7 a hectare to clear land by burning versus $150 for mechanised clearing. Would your country like to provide the money to eliminate slash and burn? I thought not...

MotoGP » Evolution not revolution pays off for Yamaha

Ducati managed to get a jump on the others in 2007 with the change to 800cc and Bridgestones and won the title. From that point until the arrival of Audi, their engineers were producing junk, regardless of what was suggested. Stoner gave up on them, Rossi thought he could fix this intransigence and also gave up. Both tried, but the problems went far deeper than a twiddle here and a twiddle there. Finally Audi came in and started solving things by firing a lot of development staff and demanding that money be spent sensibly. And in less than 2 years they are back on the podium. No rider on earth could have sorted the Ducati. It was broken by pig-headed engineers who refused to accept they were wrong, not by Rossi or Stoner, who both went on to winning ways after leaving.

F1 » Wolff explains why Mercedes update isn’t being offered

rob01: You will have 2 tiers when in season development is allowed to take place. No way around that. I think that 2 tiers of not only engines but teams has totally evolved and will stay. Haas bought nearly the entire car off the shelf.
Don't forget 2 tiers within the same team. Only Alonso had the latest Honda box in Japan. It seems now a PU maker can supply who they want with whatever takes their fancy when it suits them. A triumph of regulation...
