F1 » Ricciardo talks Raikkonen replacement rumours


Don't see it happening. If a change is made for next year then i think it will be Bottas. But I suspect Ferrari will keep Kimi one additional year and that Verstappen or Bottas will fill the seat. For al the complaints about Kimi, some warranted and others not, he follows only his teammate in the championship and the newly developed Ferrari was based primarily on his feedback and feel.

IndyCar » Questions and controversies follow Fontana thriller


There have been some exciting races on the road courses but the risks remain high on these speedways. Indy was a little better after they altered the aero in qualifying, likely because it is a completely flat track and takes away pack racing opportunities. Ever since they covered the rear wheels in the interest of safety I think Indy has hurt themselves. The aero packages allow the cars to run everywhere and it is now like partially closed wheel Nascar. I wish they would consider the aero package again, open the wheels for open wheel racing, and remove the downforce to levels that prevent the pack racing. The keep talking about adding more horsepower but really they have plenty if they ran less aero.

F1 » Ricciardo talks Raikkonen replacement rumours


LaughingGas: So of they replace him it'll be Kimi sacked twice by the same team!
And in 2007 the last driver to win the world championship since MS in 2004. He and Massa won the constructors championship in 2008 and this year he lies fourth, behind Seb following the Mercedes. That's why i still question whether Ferrari will sack him. I think they want to keep him and so if he gets a few results I think he will stay. But it is all conjecture, I know.

MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident


I posted earlier that this was a racing incident and that Rossi was entitled to the win. I thought Marquez arrived too tight and would have had difficulty making the corner with power at that angle of attack. I still believe this. However, I also think that had Rossi hit the gravel and crashed, we would be having a different discussion. Rossi was clearly ahead by a small margin and had Marquez taken him out, well, I think Marquez might have lost the victory anyway. We'll never know.

MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident


Hmm, just watched the multiple replays in slow motion. Rossi was ahead, slightly, and I believe it was his corner. The touch was slight but the apex was tightening quickly. Marquez was clearly hoping to push him wide, though I doubt contact was his intent. Still, if you watch Marquez in isolation I doubt he could have carried the required speed out of the corner, considering his very shallow entry point. I think he would have run wide or been required to lift and Rossi would have probably made it back in front. Regardless, a racing incident.

F1 » Horner addresses Red Bull exit rumours


rob01:
benignlyindifferent: Yes, Mr Fill and thomps000, I did read the entire article. Carefully. And as you will note, Mr. Horner first addressed the possibilities of RB racing leaving the sport prior to making the comment that he has no intention of leaving RB and that he remains committed to his role at RB. The change in tome is clear. Both he and ownership have been bashing Renault and posturing about leaving the sport. Now, RB is beginning to suggest they will remain and Horner is suggesting likewise. An abrupt shift in two weeks. I find this shift to be interesting and in Horner's case, I think we will find is self serving.
They have signed a contract binding them until 2020. Only the usual bull crap coming from this man and team.
Well stated!
