F1 » Button admits retirement is possible


Can't see the Alonso switch happening but you never know. Can't see Grosjean performing any better than the two current McLaren drivers. JEV? Perhaps. But I think McLaren still wish to keep Button but the length of the deal is what has proven difficult. Button's statements at this time might be made to leverage Honda support to sign him. I am not certain why he has the detractors he does because his career to the current time has been one of performing as well or better than his teammates.

F1 » Hamilton: It’s far from over


mrfill:
benignlyindifferent: F1 teams have been pulling drivers out of races to preserve the machinery for the past several years. This is a non-issue. Is the race open? You bet, with double points for the final two races, but both Lewis and Nico need to keep an eye on the RB camp as anything is possible. 0 agree 0 disagree
"with double points for the final two races," Dear god please NO......... One is bad enough
I know, brain fart moment on my part....

F1 » McLaren ‘not in a position’ to get F1 stars – Dennis


Hmmm. I doubt they can leverage Alonso out of his contract but I suspect RB might be more willing now to part with Seb if the price was right. Is Alonso better than Button? Yes. Is Seb? Not so sure about that. Pay Button less? They could but I suspect the length of the offer is the sticking point. McLaren will want a one year deal with an option to keep the possibilities open while Button will want a two year plus an option or even more.

IndyCar » Aleshin hospitalised after practice accident


I watched the crash several times. As it spins it works its way up the SAFER barrier and then over the top. A great deal of energy was dissipated as the car disintegrated from being torn apart. But the driver pod did its job and while his injuries are serious they are not life threatening. I am certain the incident will be reviewed with the aim of improving safety but I think open wheel cars travelling at 200 plus mph will always be inherently dangerous. The time is near when they may wish to consider oval cars and road course cars. the disciplines are increasingly very different.

F1 » Button admits retirement is possible


... and now i read that McLaren have openly offered both Alonso and Vettel positions with the team for next year but are willing to wait a year. I find this hard to believe but it is Autosport's lead story. Alonso I can understand but Vettel is beginning to look like a driver fortunate to be paired (last few years) with an average driver and handed an exceptional car. Ricciardo is quickly becoming the standard. But if McLaren is successful, that would leave two quality seats open and the musical chairs would begin.
