MotoGP » Mika Kallio - Q&A

@Zamb I don't think Mika would get an offer for GP - he's 31 and a bit old for any competitive ride. Also he is in a top M2 team, that he likes, has a crew he likes, a bike he likes and he is winning races. He could well get the title this year too. For Mika, it doesn't get any better than that. No move would provide the complete set. He realises that and is happy to stay and good luck to him. As an ambassador for moto2, he is ideal (more than be said for some others)

MotoGP » Red Bull increases Honda backing

Spending vast amounts of money in motor sport does not necessarily guarantee success. Witness Toyota's effort in F1. Outspent every team for years and never even got a win. Ducati must have spent a fortune over the last few years and still get nowhere. Honda spent loads in F1 on their own car but never had much success. But when Honda spend in motogp, they spend it effectively. Bit like Red Bull. They back winners but they also heavily sponsor the Red Bull Rookies. They have backed Honda for 9 years and now have decided to increase their backing to get their adverts on the bikes as well as the riders. 2016 should (t&cs apply) even out the bikes with standard software. No daft different 'classes' just bikes. Sure, some will have extra fancy bits like pneumatic valves but they won't have the software advantage. As for TC, they all have the same thing (in the ECU) so its equal. Advantage no-one. Once back to a single class, at least the factories will not have anything like the electro

F1 » Hamilton: Usual rules didn’t apply

107SS2009: .... when their authority will be challenged/ defied things will not be the same ever again, they will not ever forget, once that happens there is no turn back from it. Apart those (fan boys) and those with blinkers, nobody has talked/mentioned that, this Hungarian GP should have been one of Lulu’s most euphoric moments after his drive from the pit-lane to 3rd, but there was no mistaking that Lulu’s demeanour on the podium was subdued because HE KNOWS THERE WILL BE RAMIFICATIONS FOR HIS ACTIONS. to be continued.
Ramifications a bit like RBR imposed on Vettel for disobeying the Multi21 I suppose. The sort of ramifications that get you the championship.

F1 » Hamilton: Usual rules didn’t apply

Under the circumstances, I reckon that 3rd and 4th was about the best result for Merc. The right strategies won it (more by chance than judgement though) - RBR who put DR on the right tyres at the right time and Ferrari for not changing tyres when common sense said they ought to. With Alonso's 6m wide Ferrari, it would have needed a desperate lunge to get past him as he was in no mood to wave them past.

F1 » Hamilton: Usual rules didn’t apply

107SS2009: mirfill, it will be useless and a waste of time to go over the ramifications as a result of Lulu's actions on Sunday (to himself). I have explained it all on here and elsewhere, but as I also said, I don't expect the like of you to understand.
I'm trying to be objective in the face of personal insults, which are quite unnecessary. Perhaps lulu will get stuffed by Merc for disobeying orders. I was pointing out that in a similar situation (multi21) that the transgressor did not appear to suffer too badly. If you had bothered to check you would have seen that I am not exactly a 'pop up mushroom' or a fan of Lord Stevenage as can be checked by looking through the 173 pages of previous comments. The blind hatred meant that you didn't even bother to reply to my post, just hurl a few insults around. I am genuinely surprised as normally I find your posts informative and interesting

F1 » Caterham set to counter-sue employees

This is no surprise. The 'team' doesn't employ these people, its a different company who then provides the team with a 'service'. Expect the employing company to be based outside the UK and the contracts to be subject to the law of somewhere you may never have heard of. By accusing the 'team' rather than the employer, the workers have made a mistake. However, a claim for damages has to be based on the financial damage to the company by the statement, which may be considered to be zero. One thing is certain. The only winners will be the lawyers.
