F1 » Newey predicts ‘spending frenzy’ with token demise

107SS2009: And for the (one type) same software/mapping to be used by all it will involve everybody having to use the same turbo and ERS system as well.
I'm sorry but that is simply not true. The cars all use a standard ECU and it would not be difficult to produce a unified program for all cars. Designing the maps and mastering the program then becomes the holy grail. It wouldn't stop the factories supplying customers with lower spec maps but it is certainly feasible - and probably desirable. The better software engineers would then become as valuable as a Newey
Agreed, of course it's possible. Just because they can't do it now doesn't mean they can't in the future. But what do we know eh? We don't start every message with "as i said in an earlier post" so clearly we're not experts. :)

F1 » F1 ‘afraid’ of making decisions - Abiteboul

Massimo181: F1 is boring too complicated to understand fuel saving and slow parts of the race tyres are useless. I am a massive F1 fan well used to be I can barely watch the races anymore they are so boring. Now I am a massive Motogp fan and always have been. Motogp all races moto1, moto2 & motogp races are all excellent great racing and great battles. Why F1 cannot drop the money making circus and get back to some real racing!
I'm 100% with you. The fact MotoGP has two wheels and F1 four has nothing to do with anything. In general Dorna make rule changes only to enhance the sport, not make the manufacturers happy. Honda threatened to pull out over a single ECU unit - but Dorna ignored them and went ahead with the ruling anyway as they believed it was for the good of the sport. F1 meanwhile panders to the needs of the manufacturers. And what they want is far removed from what us fans want hence the mess we're in. How many times have we heard fERraRI say t

MotoGP » Rossi: I did more of the dirty work than Lorenzo

HansieMGP: Lorenzo is a big riding talent, but is a bit lazy. He is a smooth rider but I never have seen him working hard with his crew. The setup of HIS bike seems to be a lot easier for him than for Rossi, he only says a few things to his crew chief, then setup already almost perfect for him and lap times coming easy. I know he is ill but he never seems to be a lot of testing different for the Yamaha technicians. And he is a bit arrongant. Rossi is always working hard and I have NEVER caught to be arrogant.
Maybe JL is better at setting up and doesn't need all day like Rossi?

MotoGP » Casey Stoner makes Ducati MotoGP return

abel748: While some are arguing that Casey never won on Michelin's: true, but lets not forget that he was on third rate machinery and under funded team, yet he still set a pole position for one race and if I'm not mistaken had a couple of fastest laps(correct me if I'm wrong). So, how does the argument that he never won on Michelins hold water. With the right machine, and crew he definitely would have won on Michelins.
He talked about this in his autobiography, he would often be the fastest in practice over the weekend, then come the race, Michelin would choose tires for you, and wouldn't give him the tires he wanted, and sometimes unmatched tires.
Read his book too - it's very interesting. He got the rough deal with Michelin which is why he praised Bridgestone for their fairness. Hope to see him as often as possible. IMO the best MotoGP rider - just not overly loved!
