F1 » Alonso bemoans lack of driver influence in F1


These cars are slower, true, but not 10 seconds a lap everywhere. And if tire demands were different they could gain five seconds back without much problem. And if Alonso wants to forfeit his huge salary, find investors,and commit hundreds of millions of dollars, he too can have a voice similar to the owners and constructors. But as much as I am dissatisfied with the current F1 I do think the plans going forward sound reasonable, including increasing the fuel amount to drive up horsepower, revs, and sound. I do not want an F1 determined by Alonso who has made a career of criticism.

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.

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

F1 » Lewis Hamilton ‘inspired’ by BTCC racer brother


Agreed. Provided the race officials can determine that a driver handicap (physical or ability) is not an increased risk to others, I think their participation is great. I see Zanardi has another GT project whack will pair him with two others. The engineering challenge to create a vehicle that fits everyone's needs is challenging and quite entertaining.
