F1 » Ferrari doesn’t need Hamilton, hints at Bottas


Just as drivers have always wanted to drive for Ferrari, Ferrari has often gone after the successful drivers with little regard to fit within the team. I thought they might be considering Hamilton and I suspect they still are. His comments could concern the asking price. But i think Hamilton at Ferrari would be a mistake. I also said several months ago that I though Bottas might be in the cards, and it appears to be a possibility. He would be a very good choice. But with Seb now returning to top form there are many other potential young racers for consideration. I believe Kimi will continue to show great form, he will remain at Ferrari at least another year, and we will be having this same discussion in a year's time but with potentially different names tossed about. F1 silly season begins by face four. Seems right.

MotoGP » Honda rule out Stoner comeback in 2015


Stoner isn't coming back, except to ride a Honda. And Honda do not want him back, under the present circumstances. Understandable. What does he bring? Distraction. Not what Honda needs now. However, what is clear is that CS is now interested in MotoGP, and Honda is interested in CS under proper circumstances. So, If Dani struggles and is not able to properly resume his career, a proper return to MotoGP as a full time rider for 2016 seems like a del possibility, something I would not have imagined even a few months ago.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez confirmed for Jerez


Injuries are part of MotoGP. Riding injured is part of the game and ]injuries large and small can impact performance or force a rider to skip a race or two. This we all know. I don't think MM was ever in doubt, provided there were no unanticipated side effects from surgery, such as plate rejection or infection. But once these risks passed it was business as usual. A little freezing as required and MM is back.

F1 » Alonso bemoans lack of driver influence in F1


107SS2009: The new (modern) trend of following formula one is, criticise the racing and anything to do with the racing and you will be in-vogue, facts, objectivity and correctness in what you say does not matter, does not make any difference to those of your calibre (like minded). A pure example is on this here thread. Rexxy says today’s F1 cars are ten seconds slower, and pronto he is rewarded with 23 agrees/approvals. Richard states otherwise/to the contrary with solid facts/gives solid facts, and pronto he gets 5 disagrees/ disapprovals. Benignly, The 2015 PU'S overtook the NA V8'S by at least 100 bhp.
True. I was looking at 1:21.67 in 2008 for Kimi vs 1:28.9 last year for Seb as fast race laps in Spain. But this gap is clearly not universal at all tracks as Richard notes. And those seven seconds are clearly not all horsepower as the tires were significantly different then too. I have enjoyed the racing this season more than last year and, if the FIA cou
