F1 » Former Caterham F1 staff start legal proceedings

107SS2009: Caterham might be on the brink of extinction if the fifty employees legal terms they are chasing (£30k per person) are upheld their time in F1 will be over. Rumours emanating from the Leafield factory are that the factory is being stripped of equipment at night time which is then taken to a holding company in Germany close to the old Toyota premises, against this background staff have been said to be “borrowing” equipment themselves to use as collateral.
Stealing property is not using it as collateral. It is theft, plain and simple and even a poor lawyer would use it to show how the plaintiffs are not to be trusted and are unreliable witnesses.... Case dismissed... If the new owners are asset stripping, that is perfectly legal. It's their property and they can do what they like with it. Very distasteful and underhand but nevertheless, legal.

F1 » Kate Walker: The rock and the hard place

Since losing live coverage on most races, the BBC coverage has deteriorated. The commentary team is hysterical (Edwards) or plain dull (Coulthard). Sky have a far better and entertaining pair but then they are let down terribly by the pre/post race gibbering. Hill & Herbert are not up to it, but then the Eddie and DC team are also dreary. On the technical side, BBC blundered badly by getting rid of Anderson and replacing him with the anodyne Clarkson who can explain nothing. Sky have Kravitz who at least is capable. Overall the coverage has not improved and the chauvanism by both Sky and BBC is tedious. Far too much time is given over to the latest handbag crisis and other PR stunts. That lot has turned off a lot of casual viewers and was entirely predictable. However, so long as the money keeps pouring in, nothing will change and the era of Hello!F1 will continue.

F1 » Rosberg apologises to Hamilton and fans

Ptolemy: I'll tell you what it's done for me. Makes me not want to be associated with the 3-pointed star. I'll stick with BMW. And it makes me long for the start of FormulaE coming soon! I'm just about done with F1.
Would that be the same BMW that came into F1 and baled out when they weren't winning or is it the BMW that baled out of WSBK leaving riders in the lurch? Or maybe the BMW that baled out of WRC when it didn't win? Not really the bulldog spirit....

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.

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

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.
