MotoGP » Honda, Yamaha discuss Ducati advantages

It's been very messy with CRTs, open bikes, factory bikes, factory open bikes etc but at least motoGP is heading in the right direction. 2015 is another multi-class championship but come 2016 there will be one set of rules for all and there will be at least 2 new factory teams. Contrast this with F1 where the big 5 teams are locking out the others and doing their best to prevent any new teams from thriving. I believe that 2016 will see a winner come from other than the Honda/Yamaha factory teams. And that will be very good for the sport.

F1 » Caterham F1 makes 230 staff redundant

The only point of going to Abu Dhabi, having flogged off some old assets and raised £1.9m, is to return with a greater sum. By turning up will they qualify for some end of season pay out or appearance fee that Marussia miss out on? Anything above £10m and it will all have been worthwhile. If they come back empty handed having blown a couple of million on this junket though, what was the point?

F1 » F1: Maldonado eyes qualifying improvement

Pastor is like a bargain basement version of Montoya in a bargain basement car. His sack of loot may be attractive to the team but they needed points to be allowed to stick their noses into the really big trough and he hasn't got any. Force India have one driver with the moolah and one without and yet are managing to give McLaren a headache and will end up with a substantial amount as a prize to add to their income, which is better than a large bill for repairs and a sneer from Bernie.

MotoGP » Moto2: Alex Rins 'very happy' with debut

Yearby23: Come on Rins! I said a while ago that out of the 2 Alex's it would be Rins who would be the better Moto2 rider. It's only a test but I think it will be apparent more throughout the season.
You would think so, except I would have thought Salom would have performed vastly better this season but he didn't. Similarly, Folger (who I rate highly) showed only glimpses of how good he is. Rins is a good, intelligent rider and ought to do well and beat Marquez, but moto2 is an odd beast.

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.
