F1 » More misery for Vettel


nickw: While vetted has had the lions share of bad luck so far, it is becoming increasingly obvious, that the question of whether it was vettel or the car over the last four years, is being answered. Even Helmut Marko is saying that Riccardo is able to drive around car problems and vetted cannot. A good driver yes, but even more a fortunate one, for the machinery at his disposal for the last few years.
Seriously???? In that case, all the hoopla about Webber having such bad luck and without it, would have beat SV is utter crap. By your logic, Webber simply couldnt ride qround his problems where as Vettel could! 3 DNF in 7-8 races and obvious mechanical issues and you claim this is proof that Vettel isn't as good as his career results suggest?

F1 » Hamilton: Frustrating to lose time in stops


Calm down guy's...all this talk of Hamilton's crew costing him the race! Lets look at the facts...Hamilton finished 1.9 seconds a drift and the crew were 1.9 seconds slower over the 2 stops. So if we stick to the facts, the poorer pit performance at worst, cost Hamilton a tie not a win. Also, over 71 laps and 1.6 fours of racing, you guy's can actualy attribute the 1.9 secondfinal margin to the crew? In the remaining 5760 seconds, did Hamilton make any mistakes which combined, totalled more than 1.9 seconds? Did he push as hard as Niko on the 2 out laps after the changes? Did he push as hard as Niko up to the pit entry speed limit section? Did he push as hard as niko on the exit of pit speed restricted zone? Just some objective questions you should answer before lumping blame on the crew. You win as a team and you lose as a team. Would you attribute the win to his crew if the situation was reversed? Did Niko attribute the win to his crew?

MotoGP » We're closer to beating Marquez, says Rossi


SkyWilk:
Tetley: Stoner and Lorenzo going at it swapping victories and showing respect at the podium any day.
You are making a joke right.....2011 & 2012 was simply 3 riders taking off at the front, as soon as one passed the other that's where they finished. The only time this was not the case was the last 5 races of 2012 when DP was having a real crack at Jlo for the WC and Jlo had a crack back to hold him off.... PS - don't confuse self-admiration for respect towards others (re Jlo) and don't confuse simmering discontent for respect towards others (re stoner). DP was the only one of those 3 that had respect for anyone!

MotoGP » Pol Espargaro inspired by past Marquez battles


martin.mm.108: lol he won't be battling with MM on Lorenzo's M1. Yamaha needs to go back to what made them good, to have a chance at the Hondas.
I have a hunch Yamaha realise this and this is evident by them taking VR back (along with his financial draw card ability) but moreso by the direction of the bike over winter and now this year. Only my opinion, but I expect that Yamaha will re-sign VR for 2 years and the 2015 bike (which they have already started testing the engine) will even further suit VR compared to Jlo.

MotoGP » Pol Espargaro inspired by past Marquez battles


Its quite simple, at this level both bike and rider make the difference..... The top running guys are there all the time because of the bike difference to the sat's and opens. BIKE DIFFERENCE. When you look specifically at those top running guys who are pretty much on equally competitive stuff, its the rider making the difference as seen by MM domination of names such as Jlo, DP & VR. RIDER DIFFERENCE. This is my opinion and while you can always point to examples of contradiction and confirmation, if you look at it in general terms, I don't think I'm far off the mark. Marc is in the position to challenge for the podium every week because of the bike. Marc podiums and wins every week because of Marc.

MotoGP » 'Best race of the season' for runner-up Rossi


Top stuff from those first 3. Great race and my adrenalin was going through the roof. The best thing, I kep waiting for MM & DP to overtake at turn 1 and clear a gap but it only came in the last laps......WOW, the Doctor is now sharpening his utencil's and licking his lips. It's MM championship to lose but after 7 rounds, its clear that VR can run with JLO & DP as the norm not the exception. Am I the only one?......towards the end, I was actually cheering for DP to win! He desrves it and he definatley is capable. He just needs to do this week in and week out.
