F1 » Magnussen admits snub ‘difficult to take’


@smedley It not that Strange JB got the seat as the board picked him and yes by all count RD wanted Kevin but he didn't have controlling interest in the company. RD was trying to buy back most of his shares to gain controlling interest in the company but this failed to happen in time and it is also believed a new sponsor was going on the table for kmag but this didn't happen. again i could be wrong as so many things are said about these things.

MotoGP » Ducati GP15 set for Sepang II debut?


shamarone: re: "that is not the case about lack of data" as they can do like said in the article" yeah, not until the bike EXISTS, which of course won't be until Sepang 2. re: "I think they will have a cracking machine this coming season." I think they've got a F@#K-TON of work to do this season since they'll be wrestling with which direction to develop the bike. short term for the 16/5 Bridgestones that are going away...? or long term for the 17" Michelins whose progress will be slow 'cause we certainly won't see them used during any race weekends...? race weekends btw which EVERYBODY'S obligated to and commands 90% of their time. mind you, I've already SEEN this movie, but somebody keep me posted on how this WINDFALL of "unrestricted testing" works out for them...?
Don't be fooled they have a bike being built now it might not be shown to the public for S1 but they will have a built bike way before S1 and 2. to be honest i'm not sure about the poin

MotoGP » Ducati GP15 set for Sepang II debut?


shamarone: re: "If they're waiting till Sepang 2 its not leaving much time if it turnsout to be another dog." well let me save you the trouble, it WILL turn out to be a dog. not because it's a bad design, but because it lacks data. a new bike showing up and being immediately competitive would be an EXCEPTION to the rule (a fluke), not the rule. s2 is but the START of the next gestation period on their way to having competitive kit. and of course, the 2016 change to 17' Michelins with throw a spanner in same as Suzuki.
that is not the case about lack of data as they can do like said in the article "Ducati - like Suzuki and Aprilia - is able to conduct unrestricted private testing with their race riders" so they will have data and the will have the old bike to compare too as well. I think they will have a cracking machine this coming season.

F1 » McLaren announcement set for Thursday


I hope this is button who get the seat, he should get the seat but i read this. and this ties in with Ron and Eric saying that there is a 3rd guy in the frame. autoweek.com/article/formula-one/romain-grosjean-says-its-time-jenson-button-leave-formula-one And with Grosjean ties with Eric who know it could be Kmag and button out and Grosjean in. i would say that Grosjean is a top driver as we have seen when he has the car he can do it but i don't think he is a good a button better the Kmag but not button. anyway i hope this is not the case P.s i know Grosjean says one more year at lotus but if he had the chance he would jump.

MotoGP » Miller ‘getting faster and faster’ as Sepang test ends


Yearby23: With a 2,02.9 he'd of been in Q2 at this years GP.... Bautista did a 2,02.2 on a proper Honda. Redding did a 2,02.8 after a full season on a proddy Honda. Miller's done a 2,02.9 in his 2nd test on an RS Honda. Whichever way you look at it he's fast and impressive. Certainly showing all the doubters he can ride a slower bike as fast as the likes of Aoyama etc.
Yearby isn't the bike Jack on last years factory bike anyway? so if it is last years factory bike then no i wouldn't say it is that fast if Redding did a 2.02 on a slower machine.

MotoGP » Miller ‘getting faster and faster’ as Sepang test ends


Yearby23: Nickfox. As far as I know it's last year's factory engine with all the same running gear that the RCV1000R had... It's most likely detuned slightly. Has no seamless box. It's still fast for his 2nd test to say he's jumped from a Moto3 bike straight up to that machine. It's still impressive regardless. Redding did a 2.02 after a full season riding the RCV1000R and was brilliant all season. Everyone wrote Miller off before he signed a contract. For me so far he's doing a good job.
ah okay well if that is the case then its not a bad start. to be honest i think he has been brought in to this class way to early yes he can be fast on the bike but i think he need more time in the lower classes still. look he has only done one impressive year. if he fails to impress in this class he will be tossed to one side never to be seen again. i hope this isn't the case but just too early for him.

MotoGP » Crutchlow 'so sorry' for Bradl


korina.lakis: I am getting bored with all these Cal's excuses. He doesn't perform well and it is part of his problematic approach also. Ducati is difficult to ride, he spent a lot of time studying Lorenzo's style, so he should be more competitive.
this is one of Cal's problems the Ducati don't like to be ridden Lorenzo style. plus it going to take awhile to get this bike working for Cal so this year is a learning curve like his first year at Yam. you know he trying to ride the socks of the thing. this why he crash so much. and before you say but Dovi anyone, he has a full year on that bike. look Rossi was well down the field on that bike as he didn't want to crash.
