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!

BTCC » Fabrizio Giovanardi to make BTCC comeback


Season is shaping up nicely. A few big names returning indicative perhaps of the increasing popularity of the BTCC package since the introduction of the NGTC regulations. Also the package as a whole has more identification with the fans through social media, several drivers in particular spring to mind. F1 could learn alot from the BTCC in terms of its awareness of what the fans want, instead of serving as a primarily commercial business venture. I understand the commercial aspects of F1 however I can't help but feel it's lost its way in recent years, with regards to the fans, who ultimately underpin the success of the commercial side of motorsport in general, and justify it's very existence.

F1 » Hamilton: I want title in 2014


He will not even come close to the level of effort of Sebastian. Vettel lives and breathes Formula One with downtime in Switzerland living a modest existence. Lewis on the other hand wants to be a celebrity more than a racing driver.. who knows he might give up his BBC column of drivel, for an equally boring column in Closer magazine or the like...

F1 » Prost warns Hamilton change is necessary


Hamilton has lost what he had in earlier years.. when he came into F1 he was exciting to watch as a racing driver. However, as seasons have gone by, he has decided to focus on celebrity fame and fortune, trying to become a global brand, rather than focusing on racing, as a result becoming a selfish, self centred individual. I think unless he has a severe change of attitude, he will never win races consistently, let alone challenge for the championship. Also in one of his recent BBC articles he spoke of the need to change poverty in India... if he feels that strongly about it why doesn't he donate some of the millions he has saved in tax by living in Monaco, instead of bleating on about it, in some sort of exercise to boost his deluded ego.
