F1 » Mercedes to approach Ecclestone over lack of TV time

Not long ago, Force India upset Bernie for one reason or another and at the next race their tv coverage was almost zero and, at the time, it was said this is because FOM has complete control over the world feed pictures shown and also the radio (hence only delayed messages and selected ones at that). Local producers only cut in with interviews. Today the FOM had the audacity to show various dices up and down the field which meant fewer shots of a lonely car 10 seconds ahead of the field. Mercedes would prefer the fans to see more 40 second adverts for a Brazilian petrol company. There was no shortage of exposure to Rosberg when he was among other cars. Quite reasonable.

MotoGP » MotoGP Aragon - Race Results

Congratulations to BT for another weekend of useless app (no live timing or on board cameras, just the tv coverage), useless website (picture degrades, needs refreshing frequently and jumps ) and for imposing Toseland on us yet again. So, if you're thinking of getting BT sport for motogp because of its richly featured mobile app and high quality desktop performance, get a subscription. Their internet coverage is as good as a Honda F1 engine.

F1 » Horner outlines reality of Red Bull quit threat

107SS2009: RBR were one of the two of the six sitting on the strategy group that voted for a two tier PU supply in 2016 (current and year old specification). So in 2016 teams can chose between the two PU specifications. RBR with money not being a problem are demanding to be given a FERRARI power unit called (current specification), if FERRARI holds true to their offer of supplying RBR, (they have no obligation to do so), they can be assured that FERRARI will abide by the rules on their power unit supply (specification wise) the exact same as Mercedes have been doing, nothing less, nothing more, but if RBR wants special treatment from FERRARI they out to forget about it, gun in hand or not. I already assured all their fanboys on here that RBR by their super arrogance are going to be a customer team for as long as they stay in F1.
Isn't this just a proposal from the Strategy Group? Which seems to be mainly just a hot air vent (ideal for the spice boy)

F1 » Late payments leave Lotus out in the rain

bazza1: I don't know why people keep blaming Bernie for the teams who struggle in F1 . If teams cant afford to be in F1 then they should leave simple.
An F1 race with 4 cars wouldn't be very interesting now, would it?
Bernie has always had a contingency plan for limited number of cars. The three car team which i would rather see than watching paid drivers in struggling teams denying the better drivers to be on display
Only Merc and Ferrari can afford to be in F1 and in the case of the latter only because of huge handouts. Your criteria could reduce the grid to the 3 car MB team. All the other teams struggle every year (although McLaren have been ok, they too are short of sponsors).

F1 » Sainz: I now know what ‘bad boy’ Max is about…

LoveF1: Carlos has maintained: I have newer tyres at this point and there are 12 laps to go. Let me have a go at the Force India for the benefit of the team. If I am not successful with 2 or 3 laps to go, I will give you the position back before the chequered flag! Which part of all that is difficult for some fans to understand???
Max was first asked to move over on lap 61 of a 61 lap race. Not 12, 3 or 2 laps but the final lap....

F1 » Winterkorn resignation to scupper VW F1 bid?

107SS2009: Many cars have a test facility. Imagine how confused a traction control system gets when the front wheels are turning at 100mph and the back wheels are stationary. Test mode switches off TC, ESP and other tricks. Its just the VW system also switched ON the emissions control and only on one series of engines.
That one series of engine is estimated to amount to 11 million units. (engines) Yup. About 25% of their production. Its rather mysterious that all this information has been available for over 18 months and yet it has only come to light since Piech was ousted. The US authorities haven't exactly rushed about what they now call life-threatening fraud, the EPA having had confirmation that the VW 'fix' didn't work since July 8th. Something bigger is hiding I reckon....

F1 » Winterkorn resignation to scupper VW F1 bid?

Other emission fiddling via software cases 1973 VW - 25000 vehicles 1995 Cadillac - 470000 vehicles ($45m fine) 1998 Honda ($207m fine) 1998 Ford ($7.8m fine) Plus several truck makers were hit in 1998 for crooked software. Included Volvo, Renault, Detroit, Mack and Caterpillar. $83.4m fine Nothing new then.... and the likelihood of it being just VW?
