F1 » Hamilton wins first F1 race in Russia

hunterman: Could not believe Lewis had to adjust his hair before shaking the Russians Presidents hand. Anyway bit of a cruse for Hamilton I thought it was going to be a 35 points lead for Lewis but the Nico's drive shows how good that car is. As I said Lewis on low deg tyres is trouble for the rest.
He would have been wiser to check he still had all his fingers and his watch after that. Great afternoon saunter by Hamilton though and a worthy podium for Bottas.

MotoGP » Smith confident of big race improvement

TalentFan: Running 0.3 from a Factory Honda on the same tyres with a Satellite bike and with a tiny fraction of the data analysis & solutions capacity of mighty HRC and Factory Yamaha. A pity that all the dimwits will do is to give Smith grief for qualifying tenth.
Not a fair comparison as the bikes are very different. Compare his position with his rookie team mate.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: A great day

TalentFan: . As for 'if Honda pulled out'... then I confess I don't know what'd happen. Maybe Yamaha would go too (after all their range is diversifying into 'lifestyle' bikes as they realise that outright performance is no use on the street, and an MT-09 has more than enough go for 90% of punters in reality). ---- .
Honda did threaten to pull out when standard software was mentioned. They decided that they needed motoGP more than motoGP needed them.

MotoGP » MotoGP to remove artificial grass, reconsider flag-to-flag

And Alonso clearly illustrates the problem with trying to be so safe. The bikes first asked for artificial grass and now they discover its dangerous, I mean, who'd have thought astroturf would be slippery when wet.... Flag to flag - problems created by riders staying out, in some cases with huge experience, when it was obvious they should come in. A victory for arrogance over adhesion. Both Pedrosa and Marquez made a dumb mistake and fell off. So be it.

MotoGP » Marc VDS Honda MotoGP deal official

TalentFan: I'm happy for Scott, and wish him well. I still think his biggest worry in 2015 is how Scotts Factory Satellite Honda is going to get to the flag making the same power and pace, while pushing 76kgs with just 20L of juice. The heaviest Repsol (Marquez) is something like 17kg or 37.5lb lighter, while Pedro is about 25kg or 55lb lighter. I know the Honda isn't supposed to have any issues with fuel... but will it when it has an extra weight load equivalent to a sack of potatoes to push out of every corner, for every lap? At least it looks like we are going to actually find out. I hope for SR's sake that my fears are unfounded... but the Laws of Physics suggest they are not.
Tough isn't it being a fat bloke?

MotoGP » No seamless downshifts for Yamaha

Team do not have to buy Open bikes. They can make their own. They can buy their engines from whoever they want and fiddle about with them or they could build their own engine. No one is stopping them. It may require several million quid to set up a factory and design studio but they could do it. It may only take 10 years or so. Most team do not have the resources to build and develop a machine so they buy off-the-shelf at bargain basement prices. And for that they get a bargain basement bike. The only way to get a fair series to test the riders is for them all to have absolutely identical bikes. All riders must also be exactly the same height and weight as without these constraints, one rider/team will always have an advantage and that's not fair.
