MotoGP » Redding reacts to Gresini Aprilia deal

Not only am I impressed with Redding on the bike, but he is increasingly becoming a class act off the bike too. He's simply saying exactly how it is. He absolutely deserves that factory Honda and Gresini has let him down in two ways. They won't have Honda machinery for 2015 and their dilly, dallying has ruled-out many possible rides that he could have moved to for 2015, including LCR, Pracmac and Tech 3. However, Gresini switching to Aprilia could be the best thing that's ever happened to Scott's career. The situation with Scott is almost like a football club loaning out one of their players to another team to cut their teeth and then getting them back in better shape. He's done his apprenticeship at Gresini on an open Honda and he's now returning home to Marc VDS, who are a family to him. There is a slight question mark over how well Marc VDS will get on top of engineering the bike, but they're a MotoGP team running Moto 2 bikes and they'll get there quickly.

F1 » Magnussen hit with post-race penalty

I really don't understand how some of you are saying that his penalty was harsh. Magnussen put a fellow driver on the grass at 200mph along a straight when they were side by side. This is simply not acceptable. Not only does it endanger the drivers, but also trackside marshalls and spectators. I agree that similar moves have been gone unpunished in the past, which is why I'm glad to see the stewards finally having the balls to do something about it and draw a line in the sand.

MotoGP » MotoGP Czech Republic - Full Qualifying Results

The soft tyre flatters the understeer of the Ducati as the riders are able to drive the bike harder from mid-corner to the exits and steer the bike from the rear. The problem comes in the race, where this style destroys the tyre after half a dozen laps. If the race is dry, the Ducati's will fade away. However, if the race is wet, the Ducati's will be very, very competative and the race will be open. Great result from Bradley too, now that his future has been decided.

MotoGP » Bradley Smith staying at Tech 3 Yamaha

I'm a Bradley fan and believe that he's capable of podium rides given equal machinery. But even I have to admit that he's fortunate to hold onto his seat at Tech 3 and has been guilty of over-riding too often. His high-side at Indy was a perfect example, he went for a third hot lap when he knew that the tyre was only good for two. I hope that he'll be able to relax into the second half of the season and show us what I know he's capable of. Historically, he's shown he's at his best when he's able to relax and just concentrate on going fast.

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow talks Ducati U-turn

Not sure why so many of you are being so hard on Cal for going to Ducati in the first place. At the end of 2013, he had nowhere else to go. With his riding style, he was always going to be onto a loser with the GP14 which just refuses to turn mid-corner, exactly the same as it's predecessors. The honourable thing to do, would have been to stay with Ducati, but the switch to LCR is the right move for Cal. He'll be guarranteed competative machinery only one race behind Repsol Honda in specification, whereas Ducati's 2015 bike is a complete unknown. Another season like this one and Cal's MotoGP career would have been finished. What is unclear, is if his crew chief Romanoni will be going with him. I doubt it.

F1 » Smedley admits ‘slight twinge of disappointment’

I really didn't understand Williams' strategy during the race. They waited for the Mercs to pit and then came in the lap after, therefore giving the former the opportunity to undercut them, which they duly did. Why they didn't pit a lap or two earlier, to put pressure on the Mercs (who were behind at the time), is beyond me. Williams pretty much rolled over on their bellies.
