BTCC » Rockingham: Race Results (1)


Putting aside personal preferences and looking at the championship objectively, the BTCC is rather lacklustre at the moment. Whilst Plato is vocal about the BMW advantage this year, I think it is justifiable. How can a car with maximum ballast scamper off into the distance in race two to comfortably win by 8 seconds? Yes WSR have done a fantastic job engineering the car, but this is turning rather predictable now. Do you seriously mean to say that Pirtek, Dynamics, Motorbase and Triple 8 have all forgotten to engineer cars and their drivers forgotten how to drive this year? I don't think so. Plato is seen as a whinger as he is Mr Marketable for the whole BTCC package. Singling him out as being the only one not happy about BMW's advantage is unfair, as I can guarantee Shedden, Neal, Jordan, Motorbase are all feeling the same but don't have such an obligation to be in the media spotlight. I think some people are letting their dislike of a driver cloud the overall situation the BTCC i

F1 » Hamilton recovers to win after Rosberg error


Credit where credit is due.... In the same car, Lewis managed to close a four second gap down, despite having been running in dirty air behind Magnussen and Massa, so should have taken more out of his tyres. Kudos to Lewis. Interesting that Lewis had a problem off the line, to avoid any first corner dramas between the two team mates. Merc knew even if Lewis had a poor start, he could still recover to 2nd and get the 1-2.... And how much more will Alonso take at Ferrari....

BTCC » Rockingham: Race Results (1)


.....BTCC is in. The championship will be sorted by Brands, and I imagine Brands will see a smaller crowd for the finale as a result. I can also see Plato ditching the MG after this year and possibly returning with a Vauxhall works team run by Triple 8 next year under NGTC specs, after Triple 8 enjoyed such great success previously with Vauxhall. Tordoff will also be on his way I think...

F1 » McLaren ‘threw it all away’ – Button


ryanshek:
frws: Jenson's body language at the last few GP's tells alot.. I don't think all is well behind the scenes and strongly believe Ron is scoping the market to oust Button out of Mclaren at the end of the year Jenson would never publicly criticise Mclaren in previous times, but recent GP's are showing signs of tension. I think since Whitmarsh went, his days are now numbered. Only problem is who can Dennis bring in to replace him. Little realistic possibilities available to fit in with the Mclaren ethos, and marketability for Honda upon their return next year. Intriguing...
Grosjean? Not sure about the "marketability for Honda" aspect, he fit the bills otherwise.
That was the only one I had as a possibility, especially now Boullier has gone over to Mclaren.. When he's in the zone and has the car he is impressive.. Under Rons guidance he could prove a good bet alongside Magnussen, who has shown flashes of what he's capable of.

BTCC » Turkington eases to race three win


continued.... Something needs to be done about the run off at Church. Several high speed crashes into the trees, and a "barrier" that quite literally beggars belief as to how Thruxton can claim to hold races with all reasonable measures taken to protect drivers, marshalls and spectators. It could easily have resulted in serious injury to drivers and/or marshalls. A proper barrier and deep gravel trap on the outside of Church seems the only reasonable solution. Tarmac run off will not slow cars in the events of mechanical failures, as with Belcher and Jackson this weekend. Cheeky gut feeling this year will be Turkingtons or Jordans

BTCC » Turkington eases to race three win


Shedden had his places swapped with Goff post race three for overtaking under yellows, and I believe Rob Austin was excluded from the race two results for his collision with Foster. Interestingly Collard had a lot to say regarding the Hondas driving standards post race three. There are reports elsewhere that there was an altercation between Collard and Steve Neal in the pit lane after the race. I don't particularly like either of them if I'm honest, but I think in this instance Collard may have been justified. The Honda boys seem to be getting more confident with their new car, and beginning to throw their weight around again, much like the last few seasons. Late on the brakes, a tap on the rear and a push to pass. It's a shame really, as driving standards to date this year have been reasonable amongst the top end of the field.

F1 » Hamilton wins thrilling battle in Bahrain


What a fantastic race. Edge of the seat stuff. Lewis and Nico were fantastic genuinely scrapping. I cannot recall racing like they were today in the modern F1 era, through the blown diffuser era and before. A genuine race for the win is what most F1 fans want right? And this is what we got. So if this continues, I don't see how complaints about this new era can continue. All through the field, there was fantastic racing, overtaking, strategy. Maldonado needs to go. Full stop. So much to talk about. I imagine everyone in the F1 paddock will have a grin across their face today, irrespective of their team or interests, with a return to exciting, genuine racing, and one of the most awesome Grand Prix's of late. Fantastic!
