F1 » A tragedy if Ferrari doesn’t win F1 title by 2018 - Marchionne

Yes, Shakespearean tragedy's origins are rooted in Greek tragedy, whereby a tragic figure or hero suffers a downfall and death due to an inherent tragic flaw. Hamlet procrastinated, Macbeth succumbed to power, and Othello became lost in jealousy. All died. Contemporary tragedy typically has the tragic figure die for no meaning whatsoever, evoking pathos. Wille Loman comes to mind. So no, I do not find anything tragic at all if Ferrari does not win the title, though I sure want them to. But your point that English is not his first language is well taken.

MotoGP » Stoner ‘getting comfortable’, back tomorrow

Personally, I hope Stoner returns for a few wild card races and a full time return the following year. Why? I feel we are living in the era of the very best racers of all time. Rossi, Lorenzo, Marquez and Stoner. You may disagree but this is my opinion. I think it would be great to see the four best of all time fight it out on three different manufacturer's bikes next year. Would be epic.

MotoGP » Stoner: 2016 MotoGP electronics ‘still very advanced’

... and today it is confirmed that the Ducati plans have changed and he will join the regular testing aboard a 16 bike. A week ago I thought it was a long shot but possible for him to race a few wildcard events. Now I think it is a long shot for him NOT to race. He and Ducati are quietly measuring his competitive pace and I think if he is quick in the regular test he will race soon.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner makes Ducati MotoGP return

Interesting interview. For all of the denials regarding a wild card event, there remain hints that this possibility is in the cards. Cleary, Stoner felt very comfortable, even more than anticipated. And all of the talk a few days ago suggested he would ride the 15 bike only. Now, he hints he may be on the 16 bike tomorrow. I suspect that he and Ducati will quietly evaluate his progress and, if competitive, I bet he will race a few events in the middle and second half of the season. Who knows, if Rossi has another fast start to the season, Stoner could end up stealing points away for Jorge and Marquez. That would be the ultimate example of situational irony.

F1 » Marko wants Renault to prioritise Red Bull over own team

107SS2009: I do not know what "a helluva" of a watch sticker it is, what I know is that this "helluva" of a watch sticker replaced a sticker one year short of contract duration which was worth "US$ 70 million annually, pocketing RBR US$ 280 million between 2011 and 2015,
It was sarcasm on my part, essentially agreeing with you that they are the victims of their own circumstances, and no matter how great the brand of watch, it will do little for their performance.
