F1 » Michelin turned down F1 over degradation request


I have never understood the FIA's position regarding the need for tires to degrade during the race. They have created a series where limited engines, gearboxes etc. are allowed, where fuel is limited, and all in the name of efficiency, and yet they demand that tires degrade at an unusually high rate. I still think teams should be able to run one or both compounds during a race weekend and that mandating the number of required stops would work well.

F1 » Alonso could face more days in hospital


I guess wishing a two time champion a speedy recovery and a return to the sport is two much for the haters and their need to hit the disagree button on the comments above. I read an article that discussed the psychology of "haters" in today's on line journalism and how this reflects their need for attention of any sort. The ancient Greeks referred to this as pathos. What I do not understand is why the "haters" continue to visit Crash. What do they like about a sport that causes them to wish ill of any great driver after a potentially serious injury? Sad.

F1 » Alonso spends third night in hospital


Concussions can be serious injuries. Top athletes like cyclists and hockey players can see their careers shortened or ended by one or more blows to the head. We do not know several facts. Did Fernando lose consciousness? If so, for how long? What are his current symptoms? Dizziness? vomiting? Disorientation? These can be consequences of a severe concussion and the hospital stay can be a week or more. He is clearly exhibiting some post-concussion symptoms or he would be released by now. Let's hope the symptoms are not too severe and that he is released and cleared to drive soon. However, this is by no means a foregone conclusion.

F1 » Alonso could face more days in hospital


Concussions are serious, and a repeated concussion can end a career. Like Dario Franchitti. Fernando must still be exhibiting post-consussion symptoms and the doctors will insist he follow the protocols in place before returning to a sport that requires athleticism, a great deal of thinking and cognitive stimulation, and with the risk for another blow to the head. I hope he is back for the season opener but would not be surprised if he misses a race.

richard: benignly. did you miss my trick question about fangio?
Richard, I think Fangio did return to win a second championship with Maserati, I believe. However, maybe I am missing something.
you were right on that, but i said that he basically did it TWICE. now, you need to know a little about motor racing history to work that one out!
Ah, i will research that one...
