MotoGP » Doohan: No lines crossed in Marquez, Rossi clash

@ccwn Agreed. I wonder if there is an element of auto-suggestion here. Rossi only came up with the idea having watched several replays, not on the day. So, if you have a pre-conceived idea that you were being held up, you watch trying to prove this idea and pick up on things which appear to fit your theory. When you watched, you were maybe being too objective and not looking for reasons to blame Marquez. If it doesn't fit the theory.... come up with a different theory... :)

F1 » Calm Hamilton out to halt Rosberg's run

Taz: "I imagine must be pretty cool to watch on TV" Most will be in a coma by then due to the dull racing. Running the race at night won't hide the fact that the Merc's will cruise away after lulu runs britney of the road at the 1st turn, can only hope for a few overtakes from Verstappen and some more comedy moments from Nandos. Wonder how calm he was when he binned his Zonda.
Oh - very calm man, really really calm. Calm in a Sennesque sort of way. The local bobbies tested him for calmness and found him very calm. Party calm. Calmer than the calmest calm thing from Planet Calm. OOh look - a shiny thing.....

MotoGP » Casey Stoner leaves Honda

I'm wondering if there may have been a falling out in 2012. Honda were clearly keen to sign MM and this may have been the trigger. CS then retires, rather than being used as a developer for MM but Honda have contractual ties so moving elsewhere was not on. The 5 years are now up and CS is a free agent. It explains the timing and the under use by Honda. While it is all smiles and thanks in the PR puff, I don't think CS and Honda were quite as good friends as was made out.

F1 » Maldonado: F1 doesn't allow contact now

The saying is actually 'he rubbed you, and rubbin son, is racin' and from the same source (Days of Thunder)... Harry Hogge: All right. While we're still under a caution, I want you to go back out on that track and hit the pace car. Cole Trickle: Hit the pace car? Harry Hogge: Hit the pace car. Cole Trickle: What for? Harry Hogge: Because you've hit every other goddamned thing out there, I want you to be perfect.

F1 » Maldonado: F1 doesn't allow contact now

AyrtonSenna: To be fair, the slightest bit of contact is investigated. There is bound to be some contact here and there in racing. Pastor will always be investigated with his rep.
Agree - The Track Marshals report on Driver actions and incidents where required. Drivers can face penalties and or fines if found wanting. (not sure how the Touting Car Drivers get away with what they get up to though!)
It may be that all contacts were discussed by the Stewards but we only heard about the ones incurring penalties. Now we have to know everything the stewards do, what they eat, colour of knickers and when they last had a poo. Transparency they call it :rolleyes:

MotoGP » 2016 Ducati will keep wings

TrueFan: There's no way that bike winglets could have the comparable impact to F1 wings. F1 minimum weight is about 700kgs. MotoGP is 160kgs. Assume a driver / rider weight of 80kgs geared up, but ignore fuel weight... So, the bike has about 30 % of the weight, but much less than 30% of the wing size.
If bike is 160kg and rider 80kg, bike has 66% of the weight
