F1 » In memory of ... Denny Hulme


Good article. The golden age of Formula One was the late fifties right through the sixties - Jim Clark RIP, Jack Brabham RIP, Denny Hulme RIP, Bruce McLaren RIP, Graham Hill RIP, Phil Hill RIP, Jackie Stewart, Stirling Moss, and John Surtees all racing in the spirit of adventure and daring. Not so much money to be made by comparison to later times, and much more personal risk...Legends, all of them. Denny Hulme earned his place among those hallowed men.

MotoGP » Suzuki signs Espargaro, Vinales for MotoGP


Well, good luck to Aleix and Maverick. I'm sure Randy De Puniet was disappointed a few months ago when they told him, but now that it's out, he's had time to adjust. It could be he decided that he prefers testing, or he that the bike is not competitive... Whatever, I'm glad Suzuki has returned. I'm worried that they won't be competitive though. I hope that it doesn't destroy Vinales, because he is talented. Aleix is a big boy, and he should at least get a pay rise,even if the bike has less chance of winning than his "Open" (old model factory) Yamaha... They're both good riders, so I wish them all the best.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: MotoGP is crazy sometimes!


StevoG: How dumb is MM93....
@StevoG I'm sure you didn't think this post through. Marquez took a punt that the rain would not get so much worse that he would have to slow by more each lap than the time he would lose in pit lane changing bikes. "his brakes were rapidly cooling" - he dropped his bike because he momentarily locked the front. There is no question that his brakes were working fine. Apart from that, he could afford to take the risk. Lorenzo also took a risk in pitting. As it happened, he timeed it perfectly. That's racing. The winner always looks smarter, and the guys that took a risk that didn't pay off look "silly" to the armchair experts. MM is not dumb, he is successful and will become rich. End of. He is also a very talented motorcycle rider.

MotoGP » Marquez: Aragon blunder completely my fault


BJR:
Neckbeard: . ... He must have been so focused on sticking with MM ...
Which has been DP's signature... stick it to my teamate. ...but he just had to stick it to MM. He knocked NH off at the penultimate round in 2006 ..., sucked Stoner into a stupid mistake at Sachenring in 2012 ... and pushed MM into another stupid mistake just now, along with many other instances. ...
Wow! Big claims. Ok... Rookie error in taking out Hayden in 06. Brain snap. The other points fall apart. Stoner's error at Sachsenring, no involvement from Pedrosa. Pedrosa thought he could win at Aragon, like Stoner at Sachsenring. Binned it trying. Hats off. The only person responsible for Marquez's result yesterday is Marquez - like he said: "Completely my fault".

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi accident update


Liam48: Good news it was only a concussion and not something much worse.
Maybe you've never had concussion. It can be very serious, and can have a significant impact for a very extended period. He bounced around a bit, and was still moving at reasonable speed when he hit the barrier, although I'd have thought it was within the speed for his helmet to absorb. It's really good that he didn't lose consiousness, and hopefully, he will be completely fine. Hopefully, he will be fine in a couple of days, and this is only a precaution.
