MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow: Trading places

Hey, not trashing Cal at all. On the correct bike for him he is very fast, though he was very certain he would be fast at Ducati too and this has not panned out. His comment just seems so revealing and honest. Other rides might answer, "the braking system doesn't match the way I use the brakes and we need to work on modifying...." or such talk. We hear it all the time. Cal just comes out and says Dovi is better on the brakes. I doubt we would ever hear Dovi say that Cal is faster through the corners. Anyway, I suspect Cal will be far more competitive next year on the Honda.

F1 » Lauda: ‘Lewis did nothing wrong’

Gawd, why do people bring up what so and so did there races ago? Doesn't matter. Lewis got the better start and Nico knew he would likely have little chance of winning the race. So he took a chance and stuck his nose in where it was a big risk. And he got clipped. In most cases he would have lost his nose endplates, his race would have been compromised, and we would all be questioning why he took the risk. But in this case he deflated his teammate's tire. And so now he is seen as the villain. I understand why he took the chance, I understand why Lewis is upset, and I doubt he will do it again, but only because he has the points lead. We'll see what Lewis has planned next race.

F1 » Hamilton: Rosberg admits he hit me deliberately

Reading Toto's comments on another site is quite disturbing. When speaking about Nico he says, "Today we've seen the limits of the slap on the wrist... maybe the slap on the wrist is not enough. If Lewis has said that it's going to be a slap on the wrist, and that there's going to be no consequence, then he's not aware of what consequences we can implement." When asked what the team could actually do to rectify the situation, Wolff said: "A lot. But I'm not going to comment on this right now." Seriously? Nico was a little too aggressive for a lap two challenge but short of cancelling the policy of letting them race (something Mercedes say they will not do) they would have to sit Nico or something, which would be BS. Set aside your love or hate for Nico and Lewis for a moment. Why is Mercedes allowing either driver to make the comments they are making, and why are the Mercedes brass joining in with the discussions? Mercedes better enjoy the season's wins because I think the team ge

F1 » Ricciardo wins after Mercedes pair clash

What we witnessed today was the consequence of the Mercedes philosophy to let their drivers race. I agree with this philosophy and, while I did not enjoy losing the spectacle of watching Lewis and Nico battle for the win, Mercedes are now stuck with it until season's end. Criticize Nico? Yes, the move was probably too aggressive but it may also have been the move that wins Rosberg the championship. Can't blame him. And team orders now? Does anyone really think Hamilton will toe the company line in the next race and not attack Nico at every opportunity? Fat chance. The likelihood of them taking each other out in one or more of the coming races has just increased while Ricciardo is lurking, albeit some distance back. Can't wait until the next race.

F1 » Hamilton blames front brake issue

Richard, I agree with you if in fact the disc was truly glazed. But I think Lewis was using the term loosely, and I think so too does Paddy Lowe. He is quoted as saying, "He had a little bit of a problem with braking, but in the wet it is always difficult to get the right brake temperatures - not too hot, not too cold." I suspect the brakes are fine and just need to be brought into the correct temperature range. If the disc is truly damaged he will be starting from the pits again. But I suspect it is not.
