F1 » McLaren uses Abu Dhabi GP as early start on winter tests

theoldgitspeaks: The real problem is the powerplant and they won't be testing anything new on that front. and in addition the car is so slow I wonder if any of the aero updates can be that relevant when the car is several hundred horsepower down. All teams develop continuously so they are not really gaining anything much. The crunch will come at the start of next season when the new powerplant will or will not be competitive, no amount of development can make up for the power deficit they have run this season and that is not going to change.
“And that is not going to change” How come you are so sure?.
I was inferring to aero and other development not the powerplant,
nothing beats a "test session" on track compared to wind tunnels and road jigs

MotoGP » Rossi: Yamaha ‘bit more in trouble’ with Michelin

bigT46: I would like to personally thank 93 and 99 for saving me $20,000 here in Canada.I said at the start of the season that I would buy a new M1 if Vale won the WC .I don't think Yamaha will be bring out a 99 M1 replica any time soon ,as they would only sell two of them.Coming to Mugello this year ,I will be the guy with the Canadian flag on one side and a VR46 on the other come buy and have a beer .
Number 99 owns mugello. I suspect a lorenzo land flag needs planting there again. Lets have a beer.
hmm..that's the 1st time I heard that Lorenzo owns Mugello? can you show us the document for the track that shows he owns it?

F1 » Mercedes admits engine update was ‘risky’

it's possible that the 1st engine that Rosberg used for the 1st 4 races were already decommissioned or stripped in the factory. and they left the most recent engine as a backup in case something happened during the race weekend (and came true). And they were pressed for time since they need to investigate what happened to the new spec engine and had to stay on the old one.

F1 » Furious Vettel fumes at Pirelli after tyre blow

ghogmk2: Pirelli were very quiet about any risk concerning their tyres. This is serious, they should have spoken up.
Pirelli was more concern about it image than driver safety. All Michelin Tires' cars were stopped racing when Michelin tire blew up accident in US GP. Also FIA was very kind on Pirelli tire factory.
and Michelin should have been charged for bringing the sport into disrepute. F1 had lost more than Michelin after that debacle.
