F1 » Hamilton takes title lead after easy Mercedes one-two


Enormous gap to second but yesterday I speculated that Seb might crack the top five with a great drive, and he did, setting fastest lap as well. Let's hope that the unique characteristics of Monaco will nullify some of the Mercedes advantage and bring the Red Bull and Williams into play. Too much to hope for to expect Ferrari to be in the mix, I think.

F1 » Alonso insists Ferrari position was priority


Much ado about nothing. The switch to a three stop strategy was impulsive and understandable, though he immediately came out in traffic and lost some time. Kimi had two laps to change strategy and remain ahead but the two stop looked promising. It worked out slightly better for Alonso but really, both men's talents are being wasted for the moment in a car that is very ordinary.

Great drivers can drive even an ordinary car. Vettel went from 15th to 4th in a car that he hardly drove all weekend.
True, and I commented positively on Seb's talent in the thread that focused on his drive. This thread does not concern Seb, it concerns the two Ferrari drivers. I restricted my comment to the topic. Both men have won this race twice and I suspect will likely win again. I am not sure why you interjected Vettel into the conversation but I suspect both Kimi and Fernando would switch cars with Seb in a moment while Vette

MotoGP » Tyre ‘risk’ spurs Rossi on to podium


Rossi has won several championships and knows that, despite MM's lead, the season is early and that bike improvements can make a significant difference mid and late season. Lorenzo appears to be settling while Rossi is keeping the pressure on. Marquez rode a stunning race but only won by five seconds. The gap is closing and soon we may see Rossi on par with MM. And, a dnf by any rider will make a huge difference. I think we will begin to see Rossi and MM gap the other two as the season unfolds. I do not wish bad fortune on anyone but if Marquez is unable to finish a race, the gap closes significantly. I am thoroughly enjoying this season.
