F1 » Kate Walker: The potential pitfall of big wheels in F1

Low profile tires will see the cars rely almost entirely on the suspension components for travel as well as compression and rebound rates whereas now the tire carcass does much of both. The result? While I am sure it will require a suspension rethink it should also provide the teams the opportunity to fine tune suspension travel, compression and rebound rates, and improve mechanical grip. Also, I suspect the heat retention and loss characteristics will differ quite a bit. I think it is time to make the move and if the performance gains in mechanical grip allows F1 to further reduce the aero grip, great!

F1 » Rosberg ‘wants to share’ data with Hamilton

As I read it the drivers will always share data, unless they can somehow not if it gives them an advantage. Too funny. Reminds me of the Piquet and Mansell partnership when Piquet discovered a certain rear differential worked better (Mansell was golfing, I think) and at the last minute they added it on race day. Piquet won by a considerable margin and Mansell was not impressed. Senna and Schumacher understood these games well and neither left the track early and both were massively focused on understanding every little bit of data gleaned from both cars. Back to Rosberg, if he finds an edge he should use it, and so should Lewis.

MotoGP » Dani Pedrosa re-signs for Honda

Sorry, Yearby23. I was being a little sarcastic about the possibility of Rossi somehow making his way back to Honda in two year's time. Of course it won't happen but people have Jorge going to Honda, then Ducati, then Suzuki when he too will likely stay put with Yamaha. I do remember the Hayden era, and I remember when Dani crashed both of them out, not dissimilar to the Marquez crash last year for which Marquez was penalized. I do think Dani is remaining with Honda because he has come to terms with the fact that Marquez is the clear leader of the team and rather than complain like last year, he is beginning to set new targets for himself and he has closed the gap a great deal. Promise to present more complete posts going forward:)
