F1 » Should F1 be celebrating the value of modern celebrity?


Quite a contrast between F1 and motoGP at the moment. One is desperately trying to attract TV 'stars' and other uninterested nobodies to promote things and is suffering falling audiences yet is still perceived as boring by many. The other occasionally has genuinely interested stars (Tom Cruise etc) attending and is attracting bigger crowds and is genuinely exciting. The world of motoGP does have its bimbo factor though. A few years ago Paris Hilton would appear at races but even then she was actually sponsoring a team. F1 should be creating heroes, not importing TV dross. MotoGP has Valentino Rossi. QED

MotoGP » Momentum with Marquez, ready for a battle


Don't forget Pedrosa. He's been having a rough few races but looks like he's back to form. If he can get a few second places, which is quite possible, Marquez can claw back 9-12 points per race and the 56 point gap can be bridged in 5 races. Rossi has the advantage as he has the points already in the bag and the old fox is well versed in the tactics now needed. He has to be favourite still, but not by much. All 3 could be within 20 points of each other by Aragon (4 races time), especially if Pedrosa strings a few good results together. We could be in for a spectacular run-in to Valencia. Hope so...

F1 » Button and wife gassed during burglary in France


richard:
107SS2009: Following the subject after this "Button gassing news" experts has been quoted as saying that gassing a house through the air conditioning system is highly unlikely.
i fully agree sunny! i dont know the size of buttons palace, but i would imagine that it is quite big, thus requiring a very large, and calculated, amount of anaesthetic gas to be introduced to knock out two people. probably too many reporters have been watching "mission impossible" ! more likely a sneak thief who got in through an open window.
A mystery gasser may be more acceptable on an insurance claim than 'we left the window open'
