F1 » Williams would back Manor F1 bid


I agree. We need the smaller teams. They allow for major teams to place drivers for development and many of the top engineers serve an apprenticeship of sorts in the smaller teams as well. Also, smaller teams can evolve into great teams. Mercedes was once Brawn, which was once Honda, which was once BAR, which was once Tyrell. And Red Bull was once Ford/Jaguar, which was once Stewart Racing. Once can only imagine what a Marrusia/Manor team might accomplish if a major team like Ferrari or McLaren chose to more closely align themselves with them and inject money for development. Another Torro Rosso perhaps.

F1 » Ferrari reveals its vision for F1's future


Ferrari could use this design should they wish to enter Indy Car. But F1! I think not. F1 is an open wheel formula and this is its main appeal to me. Also, this design looks like it would dramatically increase down force requiring more horsepower and the increased costs associated with both. I would prefer F1 abandon its 1000 bhp quest and focus on evolving the current turbo V6 to rev higher, produce a little more noise and decrease downforce by 40%. Then they can build more mechanical grip back into the package through widening and improving the tire design.

MotoGP » Aggressiveness 'key to Pedrosa's title chances'


Hmm. I do not believe that Dani's weight prevents him from heating the tires. And I do not believe that Dani is required to step aside for Marc. And I do not believe Dani has been handed a second rate bike. Dani is in the same situation as Rossi and Jorge. He is up against a once in a generation rider and he needs to up his game if he wishes to compete. Can he ride quickly enough? Yes, we have seen that. But can he be aggressive enough, race in and race out, in all conditions? Not so sure. Somehow i think MM will face competiion for Jorge and Rossi only. both have won championships and both know what it takes to beat MM. Dani has never won a championship and seems subservient to his now two time WC teammate.

F1 » F1: McLaren ‘can start 2015 where it finished 2014’


107SS2009 I do not understand why you have such a hate on for me, But, go back to my very first comment. At no time did I state I knew any other numbers from this year that McLaren's numbers could be compared to. But even you would have to admit that if McLaren's own aero numbers were significantly better than last year, and if the Honda dyno numbers were significantly better than the Mercedes of last year, that they would have reason for optimism. Googleplex summed my point up quite nicely. If you disagree, fine.

F1 » F1: McLaren ‘can start 2015 where it finished 2014’


107SS2009 I do not have any numbers. I do not believe any numbers from any of the teams have leaked out. I merely meant that perhaps they have found that their aerodynamic numbers are significantly better than last year's, and they would definitely have been able to closely determine the Mercedes power numbers from last year for comparison. Perhaps the Honda outperforms those numbers by some margin on the dyno. Actually, I would be shocked if this were correct, I was merely guessing as to their reasons for the team being so openly optimistic after what appears to be a disappointing opening test.
