F1 » First pictures of interim McLaren Honda F1 car


richard:
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.

MotoGP » Smith: I’ve got to earn a good bike for 2016


brains: damm wifi, as I said marquez is the only rider from moto 2 class to do well in gps so far,and thats because hes a special stand out talent, no other moto 2 rider has come close to doing well in the class,I wonder if m marquez had have come up through the wsbk route would he be any slower now ?? lol, (I dont think so), talent is talent,and some guys just aint got enough of it.
In the final standings (and excluding Aleix Asparagus), 5 out the top 10 riders were from moto2 and the others are the old lags. (JL, DP, VR, AD). How well do they have to do?

MotoGP » Jack Miller: MotoGP 'like sex with pants on!'

Yearby23: I'd hate to see the figures for PI and Aragon....
PI - Top KTM 252.8kph, Marquez 252.2kph, Miller 248.8kph Aragon - Top KTM 237.5kph, Marquez 233.7, Miller 228.9kph KTM faster than Marquez in both meetings. Sorry.
Ah, which rider? Miller wasn't though was he? Mainly because he's gangly and about 6 inches taller than Marquez.
Miller 175cm 60kg Marquez 180cm 61kg Smaller riders work far better on moto3 bikes. Miller is smaller and lighter.

MotoGP » Jack Miller: MotoGP 'like sex with pants on!'


Yearby23: mrfill... Vasquez and McPhee didn't win the championship because they lack the Repsol sticker. if they did imagine how outraged Repsol would have been. Also the reason Miller won at tracks when he had a top speed deficit was because he's an absolute demon on the brakes. He had to work very hard to hold off Honda's at quite a few rounds.
In 15 out of 18 races, a KTM was faster than Marquez. Ultimate speed is no guide to winning races. Miller wears Red Bull stickers and a Red Bull helmet. Clearly a huge advantage over the others with vast sponsorship in motorsport (enough to make Repsol look tiny) Repsol don't even own a circuit...

papcicles:
TF2: I had to omit some of your comment due to the silly comment system. Yes, I agree with everything you say, but my answer was in context of a reply. Practically, what I say is wrong, but in theory Tech3 could partner with any manufacturer they wish. As for them being a 'feeder' team (orig reply), that is true, in part, but only if Yamaha (or Dorna, or sponsor) need it and often not for both bikes. Without the previous rule that a rookie season cannot be done on a factory bike, then this factory-feeder role is event less concre
I can only think of Spies who went from Tech3 to the factory team and the rookie rule was a stupid short lived rule. Lorenzo didn't have to join tech3 when he arrived in 2008. The satellite teams are there to allow the big boys to have more of their top bikes on the grid to score more manufacturer points.
