WSBK » Rea quickest for Kawasaki in Jerez

Kawasaki certainly look to have the strongest rider line up for next year. Possibly the strongest they've ever had in the history of the class. With the works Aprilias and BMWs now out of it and nothing useful coming from the other Jap factories they should have a machinery advantage too. It will be pretty interesting to see how Rea and Sykes get along, or not, as the year progresses. I'm not sure who I'd back at this moment in time for the big prize but I expect both guys to win plenty of races next year and one of them to be champ. Just a question of which one...

WSBK » Leon Haslam signs for Red Devils Aprilia

Greavesit: I think you may be eating these words in a bit of humble pie this time next year!
That's the same line the Brits always come on here with, every time Haslam's ability is called in to question. After so many years of this guy not delivering, it's surely time you all faced facts. This guy isn't of the required standard. With the exception of a little purple patch that he hit in early 2010, he's been pretty much found wanting at world level.

MotoGP » Delighted Dovizioso breaks 10sec barrier

One sunny day does not a summer make. We'll see if he can keep this sort of level for the remaining races. Personally, I doubt it. Even Nicky Hayden had the odd good day racing the Ducati Of Death. This could well end up being just another of those little blips in an otherwise mediocre season. Crutchlow's doing the right thing. He's no reason to risk anything now that he's signed up to ride a decent bike for next year. Especially as he's riding a bike that won't have any of the development parts that Dovi and Ianonne will be getting the benefit of. He just has to tread water, make through the remaining races without hurting himself and dream of the day when he can finally throw a leg over the best racing motorbike on the planet.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez explains first defeat of 2014

Yep, Marquez threw the race because Dorna told him to. Because they're fed up with him winning, or something. It seems the Crash reading paranoid schizophrenics are out in force today. I'm surprised they let you near a computer. Never mind about it being one that's connected to the outside world via the internet. I suggest getting back on your antipsychotic medication as soon as possible.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez explains first defeat of 2014

Everybody has a bad weekend now and again. I don't think #93 or the Honda suits will be losing too much sleep over this. He's got one hand on the trophy now and can coast home for the rest of the season. Even if Dani wins every race from now till the end of the year he'll still take the big one home by a comfortable margin. This is the actually the first race that Marquez has finished off the podium (one DNF and a DQ aside) in the top class.

F1 » Ecclestone ‘a bit of an idiot’ for settling

The Poison Dwarf really pulled off a nice bit of Karma Houdini, here. Of course, because he wasn't actually convicted, he and his lawyers can and will constantly harp on about being innocent. Although, I think most people in the world know the difference between actually being found not guilty and buying your way out of a trial before a verdict has been passed. If I was the prosecutor, I'd have demanded at least double that figure. $100 million isn't much more than pocket change to this dude. I always wonder, though, why these people who have billions in the bank feel the need to make even more. Going as far as taking perhaps legally dubious or even downright illegal measures to do so when they're already set up for life as it is. I guess the bottom line is that they're just fundamentally greedy people.

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty on Suzuki MotoGP test: This is my chance

If you look at Eugene's record on the Aprilia, you'll see plenty of DNFs. Some were mechanical, of course, but he also did plenty of crashing on that bike. He hit a nice little purple patch at the end of last year but consider his record, so far, for this year and it's been back to normal service for him. So, yes. I think the run of results he had, to close last season, could very well be seen as a statistical blip. That is, if you're looking at the bigger picture and not just looking through your fanboy glasses.
