MotoGP » Rossi blasts Marquez after MotoGP title defeat

I did not see the race and so cannot comment on the result. Rossi's comments, however, are interesting. Sour grapes are when you complain about losing when deep down you know you were fairly beaten. In Rossi's case, whether you think he is correct or not, he truly believes what he is saying. He will ride next year with a different outlook and an edge that we have perhaps never seen in his career. Will he be better? Maybe. Maybe not.

F1 » Wolff: You can’t expect manufacturers to be charitable

Toto conveniently forgets that the independents did not wish for these engines but the few manufacturers did, and threatened to leave if they were not successful in changing the engine formula. Now they are proving expensive. too bad. there are financial gains made beyond racing, and, if all of F1 teams could vote, they would revert to a simpler and more cost effective model.

MotoGP » CAS confirms Rossi to start last at Valencia

Tough task for VR but still possible. If Lorenzo wins then he wins the championship. But if not, positions becomes important. And if the two Hondas finish first and second, then if Rossi can break into the top six or seven he can still pull it off. I expect he will be in the top ten by the end of the first lap and then we will see. Poetic justice would be for Lorenzo and Marquez to touch and crash out.

F1 » Kvyat Red Bull seat not under threat – Horner

Max probably doesn't want the Red Bull seat anyway. Next year will see him compete in a Torro Rosso powered by Ferrari, and may very well outperform the Red Bull duo, if they even make the grid. I suspect he and his father have longer term goals which include either a red or silver driving suit and another year of maturity may see him move to Mercedes or Ferrari. My heart says Ferrari but I would also like to see him replace Nico at Mercedes. the one knock against Rosberg is that while very fast he does not race hard. No problems in that category with Max and I think Lewis would have his hands full. Would be fun to watch.

MotoGP » CAS rejects Lorenzo ‘intervention’ in Rossi appeal

Wow! Lorenzo needs to change advisors. His attempt to involve himself in a review of a situation that in no way involved him is ridiculous. His only purpose is to hopefully punish Rossi even more to assure himself of a championship, and that bias is obvious to all, regardless of where you stand on the Rossi - Marquez confrontation. And to take a position against your teammate and your team is unthinkable. I know he has a new contract and it is unlikely he will be dropped by Yamaha, but, guess who will be getting all of the new parts and best engines first next year?

F1 » Kvyat Red Bull seat not under threat – Horner

benignlyindifferent: Next year will see him compete in a Torro Rosso powered by Ferrari,
impossible ! str cannot run a ferrari engine as they have been refused. mateschitz has said that if there is not a deal for engines to both teams, they will be withdrawn.
True, but he's said a lot of things that conflict lately. He's clearly working hard to get an engine for the Red Bull team. But Franz Tost seems quite assured that a Ferrari deal with year old engines is imminent.Personally, I think it is possible to see the Red Bull team withdraw with the Torro Rosso team continuing on. But I think it is more likely we will see Red Bull remain Renault for an additional year at least.

F1 » Horner: Independent engine supply crucial for F1

In the interest of satisfying the needs of the manufacturers, the FIA allowed for this new and very sophisticated engine formula. Like them or not, these engines are technological marvels. However, they are expensive and so advanced that only major manufactures can produce them, and even Honda will take two years to get up to speed. The problem rests with the FIA. Instead of sourcing an alternate engine, Change or enforce the current rules to ensure that every manufacturer must supply at least four teams at a set cost, and that these teams can decide whether they want the current spec or the year old spec, and pay an according fee. If there is disagreement, have an FIA panel review and enforce decisions. Red Bull made their own bed, true, but they should be ensured a competitive engine in the interests of the sport. If the manufactures do not like this and leave, well, we are back to sourcing an alternate power unit anyway.
