MotoGP » Moto3: McPhee labels debut podium ‘best possible outcome’

Keep plugging away John, you've shown last year you have decent pace, but clearly something isn't quite working this year. To demonstrate why you need to keep at it, this time last year Britain had a former Moto3 race winner who had moved back to the class from Moto2 with the intention of winning the title. But that rider had suffered an awful start to the season, yielding only a couple of top ten finishes. Way below expectations. But he got to grips with it in the second half of the season, grabbed a couple of podiums and this year Danny's doing rather well isn't he! That can be you next year JM.

MotoGP » Official: Nicky Hayden swaps MotoGP for WSBK

ElbowDown93: I'll always remember this guy as 'lucky' having won that championship and nothing else to prove his worth.. he owes Rossi a big thanks... ...good ridance
Why so bitter? No, Nicky was never as talented as Rossi, or any of the other aliens for that matter. No, Nicky wasn't as fast as Rossi in 2006, and yes, Rossi had some bad luck. But Nicky's story is a great one for sport. It shows that a never-say-die attitude, guts and fighting spirit can overcome a lack of raw talent, even if a little luck is needed. The guy fought his way into a position where he could win the title if luck went his way, without having the speed and raw talent of his rivals. I have so much respect for him for that.

RR » Manx Grand Prix: Dutch newcomer killed in practice

Jakethesnake: Please ban road racing, or is a rider's deaths just an occupational hazard?
When you've banned smoking, drug taking, obesity or any of the other thousand ways people can do themselves harm, we can talk about road racing. Until then, if people want to race and know the risks, who the hell are you to tell them they can't? It's freedom of choice. We know the risks.

MotoGP » Official: Nicky Hayden swaps MotoGP for WSBK

Mysticmeg: younger guys like redding are ... not getting a handle on a thousand cc bike,and rea would be likely fighting for podiums or thereabouts,only a few years older,but has a successful record of taming a thousand cc motorcycle,
Young riders coming up from Moto2 can't handle 1000cc? What a crock of ****e. I agree that Rea thoroughly deserves a MotoGP ride but it has nothing to do with him being used to 1000cc machines, GP bikes and Superbikes are completely different animals to ride. And Scott Redding is not struggling with taming power, he's struggling with confidence that comes from a poorly set-up machine that doesn't handle the way he wants it to.

MotoGP » Rossi: Great shame for MotoGP to lose Nicky

Tomco: Ex MotoGP riders go to WSBK and do quite well or very well. No reason why Nicky shouldnt do the same.
There is (sadly) - the bike! Hopefully Nicky can spend 2016 getting used to a proddy bike again, as the current crop are a long way from the SP-2 Nicky raced with in 2002, and then the new 2017 Honda will be competitive. I really hope he can win in the series in the long run, but I don't think he'll be a front runner in 2016 and his team mate will be hard for him to run with.

F1 » Lotus dismisses talk of missing races

F1 is no different to any other form of motorsport - now the tobacco money has gone, privateers can no longer afford to go racing. Only the manufacturers have the funds, and that means their involvement is limited to 'the good times' when car or bike sales are good. F1 needs to be careful. Ferrari will always be there, but how committed will Honda, Mercedes and Renault be when there's an economic downturn again? We have seen it in MotoGP where you only have 3 manufacturers, but they can at least put out four bikes each. We used to have a proper grid, 22, 24, 26 F1 cars. Soon we'll have 18, 16 or less. Eight car F1 grids? It's a realistic danger if they don't control costs.
