F1 » McLaren confirms 2013 profit of £18.8m


Humour aside, this profit reflects the sad reality of F1. McLaren has been able to pay excellent driver and key personnel salaries, and they have had ample money to develop the car, though they have failed to do so. But it was not a shortage of money. Can't blame McLaren or any of the top teams that run their teams well and make money but more appropriate revenue sharing with the smaller teams is essential for the long term success of the show. Ten million more to a small team would allow for better aero development and to employ drivers that belong in F1 while ten million to a larger team is hardly noticeable.

F1 » Allison: Ferrari thinks too ‘short-term’


Kimi is coming good the and the word is that both he and Alonso are working long hours with the engineers in ways that are proving quite productive. I agree with the comment. Too frequently, Ferrari would go into crisis mode if they were not winning and demand immediate change, however, the chaos likely caused them to take their eye off of the longer term goals. I think they might win a race this year and will return to wining ways next year.

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.
