F1 » Max Yamabiko: Less talk, more torque


Matt2: Last but not the least, some people should find their testiest under the cabinet where they are collectin dust and get something done to bring exitment on F1. Every corner and slide you watch boys in Real Road Racing (like the Isle of Man TT) makes your heat jump on throat. I dont want to see anyone get hurt, but knowing even the smallest mistake will put you in the hospital or coffin, brings something else to the whole thing. I would not think twice to jump on F1 car and take a spin, but you can bet your little tuchi my hands would shake and heart race to pulp when someone would put me on one of the bikes in IoM TT. Thats the real problem of F1.
Hell Matt2, why not bring back the gladiators where you are guaranteed that there will be plenty of blood and gore and the contestants will all end up in "hospital or coffin"! I cannot understand all the nonsence about F1. My only criticism is the lack of noise and not the spectacle.

F1 » Max Yamabiko: Less talk, more torque


MY is 100% right. Increase torque, reduce aerodynamics, remove computer aids and voila. I reckon not roo difficult to implement. Scrap the Strategy Group and let the FIA deal with the changes unilaterally. I also watched the Indy race and this type of racing can only happen on an oval. But 3 to 4 cars abreast swopping the lead is confusing and oval racing is boring. Not comparable to F1. Kimi should try it if it is danger that he is looking for because it was a miracle that no one was killed in that race. The cars also look funny at the rear. I for one do not find F1 boring and the cars look fabulous and remain at the forefront of tecnology as they should.

F1 » Max Yamabiko: Strategically complicated


An excellent article. But I am not sure if the SG is adressing the symptoms instead of the causes of the problem? 1. Viewership: The millenium generation is more into its cell phone and tablet games instead of TV. This in my view is the biggest problem facing motor sport. 2. Revenue: The split of 35/65 between promoter and teams is disproportionate - increase the share of the teams. Also remove preferential payments to the top teams. 3. Engine noise : This is a problem but not terminal in my view. Create virtual noise??? 4. Speed: Increasing the speed will only reduce safety but will not improve the show. Etc, etc. Back to MY's opening statement: does F1 need to change?

MotoGP » Marquez: Today I learned motocross from Rossi


dustytraks: If marquez had the perfect line and got the bike stopped how come he ended up the wrong side of the kerb exiting the chicane.
Dustytraks is spot on. In fact the contact is the result of MM coming off the wrong kerb. He is the best but, like Senna, he must believe that he has a divine right to win and will try to do so at all cost. And this is dangerous both to himself and to other riders. His comment in Barcelona that he does not race to come 20" behind the winner is further vidence of his arrogance. MM has to realise that moto GP is not a comtact sport. So far he has taken out Pedrosa in 2013, nearly taken out Rossi on 2 occasins this year and almost did the same to Lorenzo in Barcelona. He should be given a lecture by Repsol Honda before someone gets killed.

F1 » Drivers play down desire for ‘risky’ F1


theoldgitspeaks: What we actually want to see is something called "racing" as I understand the word it means to go as fast as possible for the entire race and compete with other competitors. It also means that there is a built in amount of risk if you are trying to get past another competitor. I don't think we expect drivers to take more or unnecessary risks but we would like to see more powerful cars and cars that presented a challenge to drive, not as now where a 17 year old can step in and be instantly competitive. We don't want to see processions where drivers are too busy watching their fuel consumption or looking after their tyre's or twiddling knobs for some reason. It's not a lot to ask for Christ's sake but it seems to be totally beyond the current rule makers. I've watched F1 since about 1960 and have seen some truly amazing racing during that time. Perhaps we need to take a step back to the past rather than making F1 ever more complicated and less interesting to

MotoGP » ‘Racing incident’ costs Crutchlow podium fight


MotoGPete:
aeolus: Oh sure Cal. You could have been a contender. But you crash too much. You are riding over your head.
Nothing he could have done to prevent what happened today. Aleix ran wide and pushed him off. Cal's right it was totally a racing incident, nothing untoward just one of those things that can happen sometimes. Just seems to have come at a time when he could really have done without it.
Aeolus is spot on. Cal the Crash always believes that he was a podium contender after ending in the gravel. Did you see the frustration shown by his team when he crashed during qualifying! He has guts and a big heart but definitely not podium material.

MotoGP » Caught out Marquez left with ‘nothing to lose’


1972CZ250: I always thought very highly of MM. Lately I'm loosing patients with his so called "aggressiveness" and his comments. I said after his interview before the race "here we go again" and so he did. His comment about finishing 20 seconds behind to is a slight to Pedrosa. Personally even with MM's 2 WC's as far as respect goes Dani's got him by far. Live to fight another day is the answer here .Honda will sort out it's problems ,maybe not this year but next year for sure. Being 22 years old he "could " have many championship seasons ahead of him. Like I've said before as long as he don't hurt himself. Now I'll add hurt someone else along with him....In American sports they have psychologists to deal with issues maybe MM needs to see one .. or a double dose of "saltpeter" in his morning beverage.....
My sentiments exactly. Win or bust has no place in GP racing because someone else could get hurt too. It shows an immaturity that team management should dea

F1 » Hamilton: You rely on the team...


richard:
Wiseguy: An Alonso or a Vettel would never have risked their lead at the late stage of the race on a track where overtaking is almost impossible no matter what the pit said. Lulu pitted without stress as he was following the pace car. I blame team management fairly and squarely. LH is an amazing driver who is almost always soft spoken and humble.
you were going great when you say that ferdi or seb wouldnt have risked their lead. the simple fact is that lulu is not ferdi or seb. he didnt use his head! so must accept some or most of the !"blame" then you really lost me with your last sentence! humble? soft spoken? since when?
Not sure what TV station you watch, but LH is always well spoken during interviews on mine. Do you expect him to jump with joy each time he looses?

F1 » Hamilton: You rely on the team...


Wiseguy:
richard:
ProfessorX: "so they said to pit."
lulu could easily have said that he could manage on the tyres he was using and said "thanks but no thanks". funny though, he is not usually so good about accepting "orders"
Sorry about the blank reply above. Professor X is spot on. An Alonso or a Vettel would never have risked their lead at the late stage of the race on a track where overtaking is almost impossible no matter what the pit said. Lulu pitted without stress as he was following the pace car. I blame team management fairly and squarely. I am always amazed how LH is given flack whenever something goes wrong with his race. Senna would have gone ballistics in this situation. LH is an amazing driver who is almost always soft spoken and humble. I would also have looked p&*^#+ off over such a stupid mistake.i thought that his reply that he would be back to win in 2016 was the best response. Viva LH!
