F1 » Horner: Engine unfreeze important for F1


StevoG: No, No, Mercedes will never agree and why should they, because now any of their drivers can make any mistake (like NR did at Sochi) and they can drive right through the field and get 1st & 2nd in any GP. This is pathetic and the FIA should change the rules for 2015 so that the best driver and not the best car can win the world championship. The procession of the last 5 years is getting boring, uninteresting (only if you are not a Mercedes fan) and will drive lots of fans away from this sport. FIA, listen to Mr Horner and change the rules and please, please make F1 a drivers championship and not a dominance of one team.
So, you want to rid the world of the manufacturers championship. Have you considered that the manufacturers might just walk away as you will not allow them to compete with each other and win prizes? No, you just want a race of bog chain rattlers. God help us.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test 2015 Honda, Michelins


Yearby23: mrfill That weekend at Motegi he did test both the Open and Factory bikes. But yes I guess he would take time to adapt, but over a winter of testing he'd still be faster than Cal and Redding next year. You don't lose talent like that and I'll bet he's still physically fit enough and still rides plenty of dirt track and MX too.
Honda has confirmed to Crash.net that Stoner “will test our 2015 machine in Motegi after the Malaysian GP on 29th and 30th October, one day with Michelin and one day with Bridgestone.” That is hardly a 'winter of testing'. It is very kind of Honda to allow Casey to play with their new toy but I doubt they will get much meaningful data. The bike is surely being prepared for their active double world champion, who will be testing it himself, not for a rider who has had almost zero track time in the last 2 years. I do hope Stoner enjoys himself in the test though

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test 2015 Honda, Michelins


Yearby23:
Matt2: I just dont see the point to run him for test. Last year he was seconds of the pace and this year hes even more off the pace.
He was 'seconds' off the pace? I'd like to see the test data from wherever it was please. I doubt he was 'seconds' off the pace.
I recall we were told that the RCV1000 was only 0.3s slower than the RCV213V with no details of who was riding what. Perhaps Stoner was riding the Open bike and my mum was on the Factory one. While Stoner on form was astonishing, after 2 years of loafing around on a river bank and playing with RC cars, his skills are going to diminish quite a lot.
