F1 » Horner: We never thought Ricciardo would be this strong


Firestorm: I doubt anyone thought that Ricciardo would be such strong this year, neither the bosses of RBR/STR nor we fans. He wasn't very special at Toro Rosso, while Vettel impressed everyone when he raced for the junior team. .
Only people who didn't pay attention thought he wasn't special at Toro Rosso. He put that heap of shit midfield car regularly in the top ten in qualifying and in the race. He held off world champions in faster cars to keep points paying positions and if not for a couple of car failures while in the top ten last year, he would if had even more points. Just ask Jenson Button what he thought of Ricciardo when he put that shopping trolley in 6th last year. The kids always been good, I'm just glad people are getting to see how good he can be when given decent equipment.

F1 » Ricciardo wins after Mercedes pair clash


Alex4F1: continued which allowed Ricky to catch him and use the clear air to jump him in the stops and
Come on Alex, take the Vettel coloured glasses off and see what's really going on. DR out drove Vettel in Canada by putting in faster in laps and out laps and then pulling off overtaking moves that Vettel couldn't. He has been faster on the live timing per lap than Vettel in pretty much every race this season and he's also had plenty of mechanical problems and dnf's that weren't his fault that have cost him big points. Dan drove a lot of very quick laps after the safety car in Hungary to build a lead which was taken away by the next safety car, and he then passed two former world champs to take the win. He once again out drove his teammate by over 30 seconds on the weekend to win while holding off the much faster Merc. He has been outstanding, but then anyone who actually paid attention to some of the things he did in the previous years would of known he is a real talent. Saying its luck is just a cop out.

F1 » Ricciardo: First victory ‘surreal’


Anyone who didn't think Dan was good enough to do what he's doing now didn't pay close enough attention to what he was doing in the Torro Rosso. You don't spank your teammate by up to a second or more in qualifying regularly if you're not a super talent. So glad to see him win his first F1 race. Hopefully it's the first of many more.

MotoGP » Le Mans Moto3 - Race Results


People bagging Miller after that race are just looking for a reason to bag him. He didnt like the way the riders were riding the last few races, so he said something about it, the authorities did nothing about it (just like they always do when its a Euro rider running people off the road or banging into them) so he adjusted and beat them at thier own game. The funniest thing was the rider who started it all in that race bitching and gesticulating at Miller after the race for giving back the treatment he gave Miller. Unbelievable...

MotoGP » Rossi mistake ends Marquez victory battle


eadgbe: I think Rossi was about to use the tactics that were so successful against Casey Stoner at Laguna that time. Stoner had a similar level of superiority over the field that day but Rossi messed up his rhythm and teased a mistake out of him. Of course Stoner wasn't as much of a racer as Marc and the ploy probably needs a certain amount of hatred to work. Would've been interesting to watch though. Roll on Mugello
Thats a nice load of rubbish you've spouted there. Stoner was on a bike that no-one else could ride above 7th, and was fastest around the track by riding it in a way no-one else could, while Rossi was on the best handling bike in the field at the time. Today, Marquez is on the best bike and Rossi on the second best bike, so Marquez who is quicker than Rossi by up to a second a lap had no problems getting away. Put Stoner on Marquez's bike (which Stoner helped develop last year) and he would of done the same to Rossi.

F1 » Horner: Driver pairing ‘a walk in the park’


interestingly, horner said that ricciardo also ignored orders! so it seems that it is ok for ricciardo to ignore orders, but not for seb. and the same thing happened last year...webber constantly ignored orders and hampered sebs races until pulled in. If you are talking about the teams orders to drop back from Bottas at the start of the race then that is totally different. Ricciardo has not ignored orders to let his teammate past as Vettel did Richard. Ric thought he could get Bottas so he had a crack, once he realised it wouldnt be an option with the merc engine's power to hold him off down the straight he backed off. He didnt say Tough Luck! :)

F1 » Horner: Driver pairing ‘a walk in the park’


I guess you didn't see where Seb started or who got the fastest lap? Seb was the best non-Merc driver last Sunday.
You mean late in the race when Seb was on low fuel and a brand new set of the softer compund tyres, while Dan was just cruising on hards and still finished 27 seconds up the road? I wouldnt read too much into that mate. Dan was nowhere near pushing at that stage.
