MotoGP » Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain

So what happens when riders on the grid have a mix of tyres because of mixed conditions? It is raining at the start of a race. Half the field are on slicks, half on wets. The rain gets harder and the 'Lorenzo flag' is put out. That means the riders on wet tyres (the smart guys) get penalised for no good reason. I prefer the idea of the rider deciding when to pit. They are the ones best positioned to make the decision. We saw what happened when two top riders decided to take their chances and stay on slicks. They fell off. Presumably, they will also have another flag to call in riders when it stops raining and the wet tyres disintegrate. Has there actually been a problem in a flag to flag race? Other than the occasional rider who chances their arm and slips off (which happens in the dry as well), I can't recall any.

F1 » Wehrlein tops final F1 test as McLaren struggles

vlady: Yes.. Some rookie like pascal maybe can win the championship.. But.. If they have Lewis or Nico as teammate I doubt they can manage to beat them.. And team + sponsors need a famous face to promote their product and do PR.. key??
Well, Mercedes have said they are in F1 as a 'branding exercise' so they need a big name and recognisable face for the adverts and all the planted stories that we get subjected to over the season.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain

Yearby23: I agree with him in regards to what happened at Aragon....Pedrosa and Marquez were riding around on slicks in rain and it isn't safe. MotoGP isn't ever really safe but slicks on a fully wet track is stupidity.
Agreed, it wasn't safe and they both knew it and still continued (for a short while...) and then paid the penalty. Stupid indeed. Is it any different though from a rider on totally clapped out supersoft slicks with no grip on a dry track? The choice must be down to the rider, not a man in a suit

MotoGP » Suzuki on MotoGP: It was time to come back

lyclyc: i don't know how their promotion going to work in malaysia cause the price that we are paying is 200% of what you guys are paying in USA... a new R1, 17K USD, we are paying 35k USD equivalent. a new H2, 25k USD, we are paying 50k USD equivalent..
UK prices R1 - £15500 = $24300 H2 - £25000 = $39150 In both cases something around 50% more than the US prices you quoted. Not only Malaysia being ripped off.......
