MotoGP » Marquez unapologetic over 'aggressive' Lorenzo pass


cokerel: If you say something often enough people begin to believe it's true. That Yamaha is a missile. You couldn't separate it from the Honda with a proverbial b** hair. All the BS about side grip etc has come up because the yam's are not winning races. There's compromises by all in any form of motorsport Hondas included. Lorenzos statement re needing another 0.2 secs per lap is not to bring them level with Honda. It's 0.2 secs to make them faster than Honda to give him a chance against Marquez. Marquez style does include alot of sliding and getting bent out of shape, but today he pushed to the absolute limit just to get past Lorenzo and his 'problem bike'. The reality is there for all to see.
Lorenzo needs .02 seconds per lap cos he is 5 kilograms heavier than Marc (64 v 59 Kgs). Taking respective weights into consideration, Lorenzo outperformed this weekend.

F1 » Smedley ‘would love’ to retain Massa/Bottas


EdOz:
superdowg316: Hamilton is always comparing himself to Senna, as any successful F1 driver would compare himself to the greats. Senna is his hero, often known for driving the McLaren Honda. What better way to replicate his idol than to drive a McLaren Honda to a championship or more? Like it or not he would, depending on how the partnership goes, he could be remembered alongside his hero for being a great driver who took a McLaren Honda to championships.
Hmmm not sure who would remember him alongside Senna... Other than the color of the helmets I seriously can't see any similarities. Senna was clinically fast and dominating day in and day out. Hamilton, as talented as he is, still has A LOOOOT to show to deserve that comparison and driving the same car/engine combo to a championship is not really the missing link.
The God complex?

F1 » Verstappen crashes on F1 demo run


It is a different form of child abuse - because he is legally a child - to place this 16 year old boy in an F1 race with many risks to himself and other competitors. It is also a sad rebuff to many candidates of adult age who have groomed themselves for years through various sports categories in hopes of such an opportunity. Leave F1 racing to adults. Same could be said of sports administration.
