MotoGP » Marquez ‘changing riding style’ as he works towards 2016

SendingOutOfSpace: CS talked about the riding style between mm and him and CS said I still think each rider has their own style, so his is something again. But I suppose if you were going to categorize it, it would be more similar to mine than maybe some other riders'. He's very happy to slide the bike around and let it move, mainly into the corners more than out. And I was always happy to slide it more out of corners than in. it seems mm wants to copy cs style
That is exactly what Stoner DIDN'T say. Each rider has their own style he said. Stoner wasn't the first rider to 'slide the bike around and let it move' and he won't be the last. You do realise there is more than one way to ride a motor bike I hope. I am assuming you do know what a motor bike is though.

DTM » Ullrich banned, Scheider suspended over radio scandal

ProfessorX: except Piquet's crash was directed and premeditated, Ulrich got hot under the collar and told his driver to get aggressive. The problem is one was planned, the other incident, and it was just an incident happened in the wet, on the brakes, and the only thing Ulrich is guilty of, is not seeing something before it happened. That was clearly a motivational message to the driver, unfortunately fate happened and perception in the world of entertainment is everything.
This is the head of Audi Motorsport, not some excited girlie. He TOLD his driver to 'push him out' and his driver complied. That is a direction, not a motivational message and it wasn't 'fate', it was a deliberate ramming. At least in Piquet's case the plan was to not involve other cars, Ullrich was happy to command his driver to endanger an opponent. This is high speed car racing, not bumper cars at a funfair.

F1 » Vettel defends Ferrari after Pirelli ‘risk’ claim

107SS2009: There is no way that FERRARI could be accused of having taken risks, more so when driver safety is concerned. How can they when Pirelli declared that compound was good for 40 laps, of which they meant tyre safety, and not from the wear point of view as they are now pushing out, that’s besides when such technical calculations are made , they are supposed to have included a so called safety factor which is numbered up to 10. Pirelli have a tyre safety problem on their hands, it is assumed that they will be now looking for improved glue to bond their tyre thread to the side wall!.
May as well glue up Hembury's lips while they're at it.....

DTM » Ullrich banned, Scheider suspended over radio scandal

ProfessorX: Political correctness. Gotta love it. God forbid anyone express real sentiment over the radio. At least the EWC still has some sort of class and competition. Go Audi !!! Destroy Mercedes.
Yes.... just like when Piquet Jnr was told to crash at Singapore. Political correctness gone mad. Piquet should have been made champion and Saliva Briatore elevated to the sainthood.

F1 » Max Chilton reveals Haas F1 talks

Tomco: Come on now. Is he really that bad ? Finished almost every race albeit at the back. Until hes put in a competitive car its hard to judge him. Lets face it if your daddy came up with the money to get you an F1 drive, you wouldnt turn it down, would you ?
oh come on! if he was even a bit of a good driver he would have been on someones list. and coupled with dads money, he would have been ahead of some of the current drivers. but what does that tell you? money is just not the only criteria for a drive.
Richard, I never had you down as an admirer of Maldonado :)

F1 » FIA to study closed-cockpit concepts

The flying debris was caused because a car hit the concrete wall that is way too close to the track. Dan Wheldon suffered the same fate 4 years ago, for the same reason, but have lessons been learnt? Apparently not. Instead of dealing with the massive dangers of concrete walls in Indy car racing, they want to put a bubble on top of F1 cars. Massa and Surtees were hit by car parts in 2007 and 2010 respectively. Both times the question of cockpit covers was raised and, presumably, dismissed. If not, it has taken them 5 years to get nowhere. Drivers certainly sit lower than years ago and the cockpit has been strengthened to reduce the danger of cars and their parts hitting F1 drivers and I'm not convinced that a bubble or framework would be safer, especially if they hindered exit if a car was upside down.

MotoGP » Marquez 'keeps fighting'

Robert Danley: It's time to change the points system. The title should go to the rider with the most victories, not the rider with the most pussy points. Under a most wins system, Marquez, Pedrosa and even others would still have a chance of winning the title. Or at least, the points system should be changed to make a win more valuable. That would encourae exciting racing
2014 - championship decided after nine races on that basis. I think we can do without the change really

MotoGP » Bradley Smith signs Tech 3 deal

cokerel: Amazing how 2 seasons of mediocre can make a third season of average make you look like you know what you're doing. Been on the best package bar the factories for almost three years now and still nothing of note.
....other than being ahead of 2 factory bikes and his factory supported team mate in the championship. His performance as a satellite rider is rather better than just 'average' this year.
