MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow talks Ducati U-turn


The Ducati that Stoner won the title on in 2007 was a far cry from the bike they've had for the last few years, so I think MM would find it a lot tougher than Casey did. People go on about Stoner being awesome on the Ducati and he was great in 07-09 when the bike was ok, no doubt about that, but they also forget that even with Stoner it fell apart a bit towards the end because the bike was getting worse and worse. The start of the demise of Ducati is rooted in the winter of 2009. He had a horrible run of front end crashes in 2010 because he found the new bike didn't steer like he wanted it to, and only made the top two 5 times in 18 races, finishing behind Rossi in the championship despite Vale breaking his leg, missing 4 races and coming back injured. Yes, he still had some great races, like his dominant win at Phillip Is, but he was a shadow of the Casey Stoner we'd seen in previous years. And to prove it, he went to Honda and thrashed everyone.

F1 » Chilton may not have to pay for drive in 2015?


I really don't understand why "No one thinks he deserves to be there"?? Bianchi is better, yes, but Bianch is supposed to be a future superstar? Head to head is 6-3 to Bianch in qually and 5-4 to Bianchi in races. Clearly Jules is the better driver, but Max isn't doing so badly that if Bianchi is a future superstar, Max doesn't deserve an F1 place. Red Bull by comarison is 6-3 to Ricciardo in qually and 8-1 to Ricciardo in races. I guess Vettel doesn't deserve to be in F1 either then....

F1 » Chilton may not have to pay for drive in 2015?


Wow, so much bitchyness. The truth is that no one knows how good Chiltern is because no one knows how good Bianchi is. They have a bad car and it's tough at that end of the grid, but Chiltern has pushed Bianchi on a few occaisions this year. If Jules ends up alongside Alonso and beating him at Ferrari, then Max won't look so bad then. Sadly whilst Max is busy chasing his dreams and trying to be the best racing driver he can, a lot of people who have never tried to achieve anything in their lives can only sit there and slag him off.

MotoGP » Riders want changes after ‘dangerous’ pit start


Fatal accident in Sidecar qualifying at turn 12 (the left hander at the bottom of the hill, after the Waterfall), involving the Kurt Hock / Enrico Becker outfit. It was initially reported in error that both driver and passenger had succumbed to their injuries, but Hock is still alive and in a very serious condition in hospital. Sadly his passenger was killed instantly.
