F1 » F1: Kate Walker: And so it ends

The current guiding principle in F1 seems to be to "Save the "Planet". Clearly a matter of proportion - the effect the racing season has on Mother Gaia is so negligible as to be meaningless, less than a grain of sand in the Sahara. And it galls me that they've turned F1 into "NASCAR without fenders" as GB says with "Farting Duck" power units as described by Taipan. The folk running the show have lost their objectivity and are too close to the spectacle to see their effects of their decisions on the sport and the fan. Casual consensus shows the effect is clearly negative. Imagine - you can now hear the tires squealing over the engine noise! I'm sorry F1 is in such a bad state, I hope they repair it as it's taken a sad turn.

F1 » F1: Alonso explains Q1 outburst

This makes me nervous for Seb. Ferrari frequently seems to have their heads up there proverbial *sses when it comes to fielding their cars on race weekend. Almost like everyone in their respective roles are novices and not quite ready for prime time. In this era, they are living on their past laurels, but as the saying goes "what have you done for me lately?".

F1 » Wolff: ‘No knee-jerk reaction’ at Mercedes

I'm neither a Hamilton nor a Rosberg fan. To me (just some guy with an opinion) this could have all been averted if Nico simply understood he had nowhere to go and backed out. He would've possibly been able to take another shot at Hamilton later in the race and avoided this entire mess. To say that he did it to "prove a point" shows a lack of professionalism in which making a statement on track is more important than fighting for the win legitimately. If I was another driver I'd lose a little trust in him in tight quarters. Now everyone looks bad. Hamilton is being accused of giving up the race, begging to be pulled in to "save the engine" (giving up). Team leadership made statements to the media when they should've waited until after the infamous "1645" meeting. And Rosberg looks like a bad guy for trying to "prove a point" and puncturing his teammate's tire. Great drama for us fans - bad for the MB team. I wonder if this would have happened with Ross Brawn at the helm?

F1 » Grosjean considering future over break

I had high hopes for Romain. He showed signs of brilliance, but things are not going his way - and patience is short in F1. He might be happier and better off following Mark Webber to Le Mans Prototypes/Sports Cars. Less pressure with all the excitment and real racing. Besides, F1 is going away from being the pinnacle of motor racing with having to save energy, save tires, harvesting energy, having to coast. It's no longer the all-out full effort racing it once was.

MotoGP » More UK viewers watched BSB than MotoGP?

You're lucky if you are "forced" to watch NT. I had the misfortune of having to watch the Fox Sports American broadcast. It was nothing short of embarrassing. The ignorant "commentator" Ralph Seeheen, doesn't seem to understand that when he is blathering about unimportant nonsense, there's a race going on. There was an exciting pass taking place (I forget which one) and he entirely talked right through it as if wasn't happening. Scott Russel, while an ex-WSB Champ, is not a color commentator who knows how to pass on insider info in an exciting and timely way. He also lets the clueless and feckless Ralph Sheheen cut him off mid-sentence even if he is saying something of import. The American team is so cheesy, and the broadcast so poorly executed that hardly bears paying attention to.

MotoGP » Fastest Rossi praises Indy changes

kma55: What's that saying... "you can't polish a turd".... well they've gone and proved it wrong, cos that's exactly what they've done with that circuit.
Lol, well put! They have indeed polished a turd! But as an American it's still an embarrassment. A mickey mouse track with an infield surrounded by a ginormous oval. At least it may be a bit safer for the riders which is a good thing.

F1 » Issues ‘very difficult to swallow’ - Hamilton

He should take great pride in fighting his bad luck it is a joy to witness. I'm not a big LH fan, but it was fantastic to watch him at the wheel cutting through back markers like a hot knife through butter. And the back markers he was cutting through aren't simply NASCAR go-left-only chumps - they're skilled F1 drivers in their own right, which made it all the more interesting to see. It really is too bad we are in an era of harvesting and metering out energy and one in which we aren't allowed to see the full power of really mighty F1 machines. If we were, I'm sure Mr. Hamilton would do quite well with a machine with which he could unleash massive power. Also it did seem for a bit as if he had a real chance at challenging Mr. Rosberg for the win. Looking forward to Spa now.

F1 » Ricciardo: Until it’s mathematically over, it isn’t

107SS2009: Agree that Monza and Spa should prove difficult to non Mercedes engine cars but rumours doing the rounds says that finally the pressure on the FIA has taken its toll and that they have approved the first modifications/improvements to the PU on reliability grounds, also being said that FERRARI has improved their ICE output alone by 20/25 hp just by preserving exhaust heat into the turbo turbine housing by the use of very special paint. Still I don’t believe that the gap to Mercedes can be fully bridged with the present PU’S design FERRARI and Renault are running with. to me it seems that Mercedes can make use of more electrical power for a longer time than FERRARI and Renault can.
