MotoGP » Vintage Rossi clinches emotional victory at Misano

Marquez is a great rider but for the very first time in MotoGP he had a rider, Rossi, immediately snatch back the lead from him, and this unsettled him. He then pushed too hard and made a mistake. Yes, Rossi was absolutely brilliant and if the Yamaha is truly coming good on other tracks the remainder of the season will be very exciting to watch.

F1 » Hamilton takes F1 title lead as Rosberg retires

Congrats to Lewis but I really thought this was a boring race. And Pirelli's choice to bring softer tires this year didn't change much other than increase the marbles offline, making passing even less likely that before. We need a high performing durable tire that makes one stop a possibility and softer tires that work best on two or perhaps three. But really, Kimi's race was over after the first round of stops and yet there was little reason to move him to a different strategy. So we watched a parade.

F1 » Hamilton beats Rosberg by 0.007s in tight qualifying

Yes, but if you pit several laps early and emerge in clean air, you might leapfrog a few cars if they stack up behind a leader with tires going off. Degradation will definitely play a factor. I think several teams will split their strategies and have cars pit several laps apart. We will see. But for the first time a Mercedes victory is not considered a sure thing.

F1 » Hamilton beats Rosberg by 0.007s in tight qualifying

The very close margins on what is close to a two minute lap suggests everyone is VERY close and the race pace might be the same.If they are bunched up as expected the first pit stop, and the undercut, could be decisive. It will be interesting to see the team strategies tomorrow, and Kimi could still be in for a good result as I really think tire management and pit strategy will play an even more dominant factor than the norm.

F1 » F1 could see three-car teams in 2015

So, the three car teams would share all of the revenue currently reserved for the top two car teams. Here's an idea. Why not redistribute the revenues just enough to allow the little teams a better chance of survival? Williams, Mercedes, RedBull were all little teams that evolved to being top teams. Why destroy this through greed? Oh right, it's Bernie's idea.

F1 » Dennis: McLaren could retain line-up

I respect people's opinions, however, I disagree that Button is a mediocre, washed up racing talent. He's not. He is not in Alonso's or Kimi's class, and you can add one or two other names, but after that very short list he is right there. Vettel? Would you really take him over Button? JB has managed every one of his very fast teammates. Two of them won world championships, as did he. Seb? Currently being destroyed by his teammate. Is Dennis wating for Alonso? Will wait a long time. Lewis or Nico, should the Merc team detonate? Likely, and I can foresee a situation where Lewis returns to McLaren, where he worked very well with Button. But say Alonso, or Lewis, or Seb moved. If you plugged JB into the Ferrari, Mercedes or RB team you would almost certainly have driver harmony and great car development. I wouldn't write his career off just yet.
