F1 » Alonso expects McLaren success to come ‘soon’


Yes, the lack of pre-season testing is stupid. Name any other sport where the ticket holders would be willing to watch their athletes work themselves into shape for the first few matches. Australia holds a great event but it seems rather foolish to expect them to pay full prices for half a grid with others retiring as they get up to speed. Perhaps Bernie will pro rate the tickets and charge customers based on the size of the grid, giving everyone a half price rebate. Not. Or, perhaps if F1 more equitably shared revenue everyone could afford four or five mileage sessions where they could run the reserve drivers and potential drivers for the future, saving only three test days for the regular drivers for the season.

F1 » Vettel ‘lucked’ into Ferrari win, says Button


Reading the full comments I see no negativity on the part of Button. He's only saying that Seb is very fortunate to arrive at a team that was going nowhere last season but is super competitive this season. I am sure Seb thought this year would be a building year and that success at season's end or next year was the most they could hope for. But once the simulator runs began both he and Kimi were quite pleased and their comments reflect that.

F1 » It’s good to talk... or is it?


williamskrainski:
benignlyindifferent: I don't particularly trust Ron or Fernando. But I trust the data.
....And you've seen the data?
Nope. But the FIA has seen the data and acknowledged Alonso was still braking and turning the wheel at impact, and so to has Button, who confirmed their finding and was prepared to get into the car the next day. So, either there is a massive conspiracy by McLaren, the FIA and Dennis to frame Alonso on his very first outing for the team, or, Alonso is mistaken or is unwilling to admit he screwed up. You believe what you wish and so too will I.

MotoGP » Honda decided against Stoner MotoGP return?


YOu can read the entire text on another site and Stoner fan or not, what is important is that Casey wanted to give it a go and Honda was reluctant to allow him to do so. This is the first time we have learned that Stoner would like to give MotoGP another shot, albeit on his terms. I would not be at all surprised if he rides and trains more on the current spec bike with an eye on a wildcard event by seasons's end. I would have hot thought this possible until now.

F1 » Horner: Ferrari shows everything is possible


On another news site I read that last year's exposure to F1 was valued at approximately 2.5 billion dollars for Mercedes. This justifies their involvement, no doubt. Negative exposure likely is the cause for Renault's cold feet but with Torro Rosso coming to form and if Horner stops trashing them in public I suspect they will stay. Therefore I cannot imagine Red Bull pulling out. They have invested much and their marketing exposure must be enormous as well. Leaving would hurt them twofold. They would lose the F1 exposure and, other energy drink companies would enjoy increased exposure. I do suspect calmer heads have prevailed. Both need each other. Red Bull has no hope at this point in attracting another engine manufacturer and Red Bull is Renault's best long term chance for more victories. I know others disagree with me but I think Horner is no longer an asset to RB racing and a change in leadership should be considered. His comments have hurt Renault and instilled doubt in the team.

MotoGP » Pedrosa to undergo surgery, out for two races


Dani has been a top performer in the Rossi, Stoner, Marquez era, keeping his Honda ride and always being regarded as one of the top three or four in the sport. Never winning a tittle will sting but I cannot think of another who has had the quality of competitors that he has had to face. Hopefully the surgery is successful and he can return to compete at the highest level. If not, I suspect he will retire. A great rider who faced the greatest of their generations.
