MotoGP » Sepang II MotoGP test times - Tuesday (Final)

dannycoupe1: Smithy2781 does that mean he's thrown in the towel on MOGP ?
I don't know but from comments he's made recently I get the impression that he wanted to stay in wsbk and fight for a championship instead of running around the back of the motogp grid. I think it's on this website when they Aprillia announced that he was coming back to Motogp that Marco said that the way that he got back was unusual ( or words to that effect ) so sounds like he was kind of forced to go back to Motogp.

MotoGP » Sepang II MotoGP test times - Tuesday (Final)

Bandini: Judging by his times Melandri doesn't want to be there. Not sure I can see him starting the season at this rate
He not long just tweeted that he can't ride and apologised to his team.
Perhaps, age and the new family have blunted his drive? Don't give up, 33!
Probably, I think realistically he knows that at his age to get a good ride in motogp is going to be hard and that he has a better chance of succeeding more in wsbk.

F1 » McLaren blames wind for Alonso crash, slams electrocution rumours

ProfessorDave: 1) Why did Alonso spin off and hit the INSIDE wall? Top drivers just don't do that. 2) Why was he 'allegedly' changing down whilst about to hit the wall, surely that would be no help whatsoever? 3) If the car slid along the wall for 15 seconds he must have been unconscious, did this happen on impact or before impact? 4) It was a very slow speed accident in F1 terms, about 90 mph. The chassis and cockpit area weren't visibly damaged. How could he possibly have been knocked unconscious by the impact? Just asking.
The whole car didn't look that damaged so that means that the driver took most of the impact so it's highly paulisble. The safest impacts are the ones when the car breaks up into lots of pieces as this means the car and crash structure absorbed the impact.

F1 » Kate Walker: Fuel madness

I agree with the people saying that they shouldn't limit the fuel flow. They even limit the power from the electric motors I believe I think its 160 hp ( please correct me if I'm wrong). I don't think they should limit the power to the same hp its supposed to be a competition so such things shouldn't be limited like that. If they at least lift the power output rule on the electric mtors at the very least it would be much better s ith new technology someone will find a way to make a much more efficient / powerful motor which would benefit road cars as well which is what they are trying to achieve ( or at least give that impression ).

MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP - Free Practice (1) Results

rbr46: Another thing is the commentator on BT. He is talking about 1 thing but as soon as the camera changes shot, he forgets the previous topic and starts talking about what just appeared on the camera. Julian Ryder, is talking and get interrupted about 80% of the time by either a rider appearing on camera in his garage or today there was a bug in the comm box and he is killing it and making all sorts of noise in the background while Ryder is talking.
How about we give Keith a chance....instead of judging him after day 1? Give him a few rounds to get back into it. He was brilliant with Ryder in the nineties with World Superbikes, everyone loved them.
I know it's like when BT announced Melaine Sykes as a presenter everyone moaned. I've just watched the season preview and have to say she is actually very good and she looks pretty tidy too lol. I know this will upset a few people but IMO she's as good as suzi perry I really th
