MotoGP » Corrado Cecchinelli (MotoGP 2016) - Q&A


I'm quite impressed with the way motogp has dealt with its problems. It has meant going through a few seasons of daft things like CRT bikes but it does seem the objective has been achieved. We now have Ducati being competitive and other manufacturers returning. By 2017 there will be 5 factory teams involved. While it is still likely that Honda and Yamaha will win most of the time, the satellite bikes and smaller factory teams will have a genuine chance of getting a win. Honda's troubles this year and the fact that they cannot tweak their engine has weakened them to the extent that a Ducati or Suzuki win is not impossible to consider. And that is not a bad thing. The rules will never be perfect but they are much better now than for many years and F1 needs to have a good look at motogp to see how to sort out a sport. But they won't...

Fact is, these concession rules were designed to a) Reduce the dominance of the big two teams b) Help weaker teams to improve their bike during the season c) Attract new factory teams d) Make the sport more popular and all 4 have been achieved. It's not perfect and it never will be, but it does look like a healthy future for motogp, unlike some other motor sport series.....

F1 » Horner: We need someone like Brawn to design F1 future


107SS2009: A joker with a pedigree this spice man, the likes never seen in F1. This his latest call is not a new one, it’s an extension of his combined coordination with the half cancer of F1 “The FIA and Bernard should decide on the regulations---give teams a form to sign here or ****** off” RBR are floundering and so is the joker spice man, how come that he is now conveniently forgetting that he was and is part and parcel of the strategy group he is now so much against?.
I'm guessing here but I reckon you're not the #1 fan of Mr Spice.

Rockstar84: Single ECU is ok, but same software for all, does not seem like a bright idea to me. If the various manufacturers can tweak it to their tune, then ok, if not, it might end up being a killjoy. Levelling the competition is great,but it could end up in a manner that only some can get it to work, while others struggle .
The software does what its told. Feed it the right data and you will get the right result. Finding the right data is the skill. Allowing mega-buck companies like Honda/Yamaha to spend zillions developing bespoke fancy software was part of the problem, not the solution. This way, no team can be accused of having trick software. How they use the standard software is quite a different story though.

Garcia: I thought Ducati needed 3 dry wins to lose concessions, not just one? I can't keep up with all these changing rules...
The extra fuel and different tire allocation are subject to results obtained in dry conditions. If one of the factories succeeds in scoring either three podiums, two second place finishes, or a single win, then the fuel allowance will be cut from 24 liters to just 22 liters for that factory. If that factory scores three wins in the dry, then they lose the softer rear tire, and will have the hard and medium at each race, rather than the medium and soft. The concessions on engine development, the number of engines and the freedom to test are not affected by the results a factory might score.

F1 » Austrian Grand Prix - Race results


richard:
mrfill: Berger's rostrum interviews were hilarious. He's supposed to be the one apologising for bad language.... The FIA campaign needs slight alteration... "Don't drink and conduct rostrum interviews"...
gerhard was always a fun loving trickster. but interesting to see that he seems to have landed a role at str. possibly a mentor for the two youngsters?
He was talking in terms of raising money and buying a team when he talked to Brundle on the grid. Whatever it ends up as, he would be an asset to any team, when sober :)
