MotoGP » Moto3: Vazquez returns with Kiefer Racing

@vilas46 It may be difficult to absorb facts, but my figures are not created in my head, they are the figures recorded at the track by the official timers. One bike may look faster but the speed gun does not lie. The biggest speed boost is by slipstreaming. Vasquez and McPhee are two of the smallest riders and slipstream particularly well, gaining anything up to 10kph. Put them on a KTM and the same thing would happen.. The Honda was a little faster, but not massively so and this is reflected in the results overall. Of the top 10 riders - 5 on KTM, 4 on Honda, 1 on Mahindra. I did watch the races and did see Efren win, but only twice out of 18 races.

MotoGP » Moto3: Vazquez returns with Kiefer Racing

NineTimes: That massive soeed advantage of the Honda last season couldn't do him any good. Machine cannot fill talent gap!
What massive speed advantage? While a Honda did achieve top speed in 14 out of 18 meetings, only twice was the advantage more than 4kph (Indy and Valencia) and was less than 2kph in 7 meetings.. The average difference over the season was 1.4kph or less than 1mph. Figures courtesy of official timing. Less than 1mph is not exactly 'massive', is it? Any perceived 'massive' speed advantage is likely to be down to a rider slipstreaming better. Vasquez and McPhee being good examples.

F1 » First pictures of interim McLaren Honda F1 car

mrfill: It may just be a not very good picture but it looks pretty ugly to me, much as most F1 cars nowadays. Fat as a pig round the middle and with a gentlemans sausage dangling from the front. Very stylish. Hope it makes up in speed what it lacks in looks
it is just the current car! slightly different engine cover. no fatter as it is using current radiator set up etc. bears little or no resemblance to the 30.
I realise that richard. Its probably just a Honda sticker as well. There's a 1.0 Nissan Micra engine under that cover :) Marvels of engineering but now nightmares of aesthetics. I think they stopped being pretty about 10 years ago.

F1 » Racing in Abu Dhabi 'crucial' for Caterham F1

The statutory duties of an administrator are 1. to rescue the company as a going concern 2. if 1 is not possible, to increase the amount available for creditors compared to immediate winding up. 3 if 2 is not possible, to dispose of the assets and distribute the spoils amongst the creditors The administrator cannot prefer a particular creditor because they were appointed by that creditor and the primary creditor is always HMRC. This is an attempt at number 2.

F1 » Ecclestone: ‘No point’ F1 targeting young fans

As Bernie doesn't want any fans under 70, how about making the sport appeal more to the old fartery. Let's have a minimum age for drivers of 60 (to allow some young blood in). Lauda, Prost, Mansell, Stewart, Marko, Newey, Moss, Piquet, Andretti, Fittipaldi all tottering around would make a breathtaking event. Rather more breathtaking to some than others.... The crowds would flock to see them (if their doctors permitted)
