F1 » Lauda upset with ‘unacceptable’ Mercedes mistake


Lauda is upset? He was listening to the talk, he states it was confusing and then states that it was clearly the wrong decision and instructs Tito to review what happened... ....when was Lauda going to say "no, he doesn't need to pit, keep him out there"? Smells like all involved are happy to care but no one wants to own the responsibility for their part. Not LH fault as he's JUST the driver who ASS U ME D the others were pitting so questioned the original call to stay out (something about confusion...)? Not Lauda's fault as he just looks on and has no say on race day but was listening to everything and could clearly see it was the wrong choice but failed to say anything? Not Tito's fault, obviously, because he's investigating. Who's left with....right.....the "team"! Highly trained and skilled (pit stops in 2.1 seconds) people don't just make a mistake of this magnitude. It results from multiple people "falling a sleep at the wheel"

MotoGP » Rossi: Lorenzo's form is bad news for me


Well done all (who finished) and hope all is well with Cal. Congrats to Jlo and good recovery Vale. Out of interest, poor season 2014 (by his standards), average (with the pack) off-season, no where first 3 rounds 2015 then Yamaha announce they will keep Jlo for second year (not Jlo has chosen to stay) and BAM....not only 3 in a row but from first corner to flag unchallenged. More so, after 4-6 laps, he has a 3-4 second lead???? If it were Rossi, imagine all the conspiracy theories flying around right now (special tyres, Dorna, team focus bla bla)? Ask yourself, how can such a turn around in form be explained (insect repellant, duct tape in his helmet)? Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying JLo isn't that good, I'm saying NO ONE is that good. Me thinks something is on behind the scenes and anyone other than the die hard Jlo fans will be thinking the same.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: This can be our year


Yearby23: I want Lorenzo to hammer this championship. Then once and for all the haters will be silenced. He will have beaten Rossi on an equal playing field on equal machinery with them both at the top of their forms and uninjured and beating the Ducatis which have extra fuel, engines and testing concessions....
I'd like Vale to win for the exact same reasons......

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


To anyone suggesting the team stuffed him over, I say, if drivers can ignore team orders as it pleases them (many example in recent history), then it is still the drivers decision when to pit (taking on board team info.)...... Team says to pit, LH still had to agree it was the best option and given HE was in front and given HE knew the state of the car/tyres, and given HE new there were only 8 laps left, and given HE was at the wheel, agreed to pit! The shorts of it all is that the TEAM (of which LH is part of not external to) got it wrong. Some context....it's always the team (separate of the driver) that stuffs up but strangley enough, it's always the driver (detached from the team)that wins ????? My last point, would Vettel have come in? There are champions and then there are winners of championships!

F1 » Alonso bemoans lack of driver influence in F1


In one paragraph, he highlights that because he is going around the China track 10 sec slower than in 2004, "you don't have the same feelings". Then, in another paragraph, he states that go-karting with his friends is so much fun because of the competition, even at 50 kmph. One can only conclude that his enjoyment (lack of) for the current sport, is less to do with lap times and more to do with the lack of competing for the win....... One tip for you, the field will not come back to you! If you want to compete for the win again, lift your game (the only thing you can control). Having a reliable car will also help but you cannot control that (although you did chose to leave Ferrari)....

MotoGP » Rossi: We were always fighting some problem


Good race from all! Well done JLo. Dominated from first session to race end! Well done MM to do well after the past fortnight with no points from Argentina and then your injury while training! Well done VR, you snagged your 200th podium, extended your lead in the WC and showed once again that you are always thinking of the title rather than a race win or position! To the haters, interesting that a 3rd place, extension of WC lead and a happy snap with JLo can bring such condemation from the penut gallery? Even the haters expect VR to win and anything less is apparently proof of failure.......you people know he's the best but simply refuse to admit it and you have done such a wonderful job of backing yourselves into a corner over the past 5 years. Gota roll with it now, don't ya!

MotoGP » Honda rule out Stoner comeback in 2015


Simon Cartledge: I can't see Marquez or his team really saying anything to stop Stoner coming back. Like many people, I wasn't a fan of Stoner when he was around but it has got to the point now, where I'd love to see him back, if that's what he wants to do. You just get that feeling that its going to happen.
I tend to think the only reason he would get back in is because both Dorna & Rossi would love to make an example of him.......

MotoGP » Honda rule out Stoner comeback in 2015


My how 2 years is a long time in MotoGP! Rossi was down and out, Stoner had the results to stick the boot in and Jlo was smooth as butter and hard as a hammer..... 2 years on, Rossi in the hunt for number 10 WC and already 2 wins from 3 starts, Stoner still cannot get back in even though everyone keeps claiming he was the second coming and Jlo now has to announce that even though he signed a 2 year deal, he has been confirmed for the second year of said deal.... WTF? The haters must be exploding like gremlins in a microwave....Karma is a b#@ch isn't it!!!!! ....wait, I will be back, I just need more pop corn :)

MotoGP » Rossi on brink of record 200th podium


Jimmy1:
GRANN1EJANE: Must've been the Ducati then.
Yup, the bike he was incapable to tame, UNLIKE Stoner.
Stoner didn't tame the Ducati. Remember he jumped ship after round 3 2010 to sign with Honda because he couldn't tame it. Remember he didn't win until round 13-14 in 2010 because he couldn't tame it. Simply another myth perpetuated by Moaner fans to hide the fact he was gifted a better bike & tire package in 2007 (4th on Ducati's list as I remember!) and was then put back in his place 2008 by the one and only DOCTOR! Heck, he couldn't even tame his WC winning Honda with an extra 4kg......a bike that won 12 races that year (Pedro won 7 or 8 of them).....I mean, WTF?
