F1 » What we learned at the Australian Grand Prix

Bring back the real racing. Full fuel, tyres that will last more than ten laps, (they can still have two different compulsory compounds) and engines that sound like formula one engines. Put a kers on it if you want to test technology but dont let if interrupt the racing. Most F1 fans couldnt give a rats about super clean environmental racing, just give us the sound & sights, and the best guys going flat out for the whole race.

F1 » Red Bull to appeal Ricciardo exclusion

You cant give a team a sensor, admit its faulty enough for you to give them another one, then realise that the new one is worse, tell them to go back to the faulty one they first had and then penalize them when they dont rely on the information its providing to race at thier best. Thats just ludicrous and smacks of the FIA trying to protect its agreement with the sensor supplier only (coz lets face it, the supplier would of paid bulk money to win the f1 contract). If you cant measure a restriction accurately for all cars, then you have to find a way to do so or dont use it as a restriction. If RB can show they didnt exceed the fuel flow rate they should have all points restored and the FIA needs to find a better way to measure or restrict the fuel flow rate for everyone equally. On another note, I have actually "liked" two of Richards posts and i'm feeling a bit strange about it..

F1 » Red Bull to appeal Ricciardo exclusion

Slagheap: Redbull decided they were better than the FIA at measuring fuel. The FIA told them mid race they were exceeding the rules on fuel flow. RedBull ignored this advice. Disqualification is inevitable, unless FIA want to lose control of their new rule. Tolerances were installed for any questionable readings too, for any frequency malfunction, and the fuel flow meters were increased from 5 to 10 hz for this reason.
The FIA admitted the sensor they used was faulty, so they gave them another one, which failed, and then the FIA told them to go back to the one that was faulty to use in the race and thats supposed to be fair? Too many people letting their dislike for certain teams cloud thier responses on this imo. If the FIA want this ridiculous fuel economy racing they need to make sure all the equipment supplied is the same and does not disadvantage anyone. The guy i feel most for in this is DR. He nailed that race weekend and deserved 2nd.

F1 » Ricciardo excluded from Australian GP

I'm sorry, but if the FIA provided sensor had been proven to be faulty as per it being replaced for one or two of the prac sessions on the weekend, how can the FIA be relied upon to tell RB their fuel flow rate was too high? The whole things smacks of incompetence on the FIA's part IMO. As others have mentioned the teams should be given 100litres of fuel at the start and then they can run it as they please, as they would need to regulate it to make it to the end of the race. More stupidity from organisers ruining the sport.

MotoGP » Ducati 'not happy' with Factory 2 development

Dorna's aim was to get everyone in an Open class by 2017, all on spec ECU's etc. Now one of the factories has gone early, and they change the rules. Dorna are an absolute joke. They have had no credibility for a while with all the rules they change to suit certain people, and this change only demonstrates even more that its not about fair racing. If they had any backbone at all, they would of put everyone in open class, given them 24 litres of fuel and the spec ECU without the latest upgrade and then leave it to the riders and mechanics to get the best out of the bike, without million dollar software fixes. If Honda wanst to quit let them, I'm sure if other factories like Suzuki, BMW, Kawasaki & Aprillia saw that the software costs were set and the expenses were reduced, they would be more interested in racing the series. Casey is probably laughing so hard right now at this clown of a championship..

F1 » Ricciardo not intimidated by Vettel

The guy sometimes outqualified his highly rated teammate by a second in a piece of crap car as well as out scoring him in the races (despite having the car fail while in the points several times) and he's over rated? Its funny how some on here applied the same logic to Vettel and said why he deserved the ride in RB but wont apply the same to Ricciardo. It just seems like there's a few on here with sour grapes because thier favourite didnt get the gig. I like him, he has a good sense of humour and while he's prepared to admit he hasnt got the runs on the board just yet, he believes in himself enough to go up against the best guys in F1. We'll just have to see if RB can give them both a good enough and reliable enough car this season to get the best out of themselves and see what happens. I'm quietly confident DR will go well.

MotoGP » Ducati 'near to Honda and Yamaha'

I think you'll find it also has something to do with the new tyre compounds not working so good for the other bikes as they cant get the edge grip they could with the previous construction tyre. Ducati mentioned they didnt feel much difference with the change as they never had that much edge grip originally. Whatever the issue, hopefully it makes for good racing.
