F1 » Montezemolo: F1 has to be extreme


Hm. and if Luca's cars were 1 and 2 this weekend? No point casting stones imo if you aren't even in the same game. Ferrari has been in the doldrums of F1 for yrs and need to step it up. The pressure isn't on F1 which is seeing new teams and more importantly manufacturers enter or return to the sport. The pressure is on Ferrari with 2 world title drivers in their prime languishing in fights with Force India... and no that is not a shot at Force India.

MotoGP » Kevin Schwantz to test MotoGP Suzuki


TedG: I think Kevin would have more than a little input into the new bike. The guy is a natural rider with more talent than most on this planet.
Yeah, time to take off those rose-coloured glasses. This might be the case in NASCRAP or another series that moves its technological improvements at a glacial pace but not MGP. This is a PR thing only. If Suzuki wants a Suzuki rider's real input Ben Spies is who they want, not KS. Realistically KS is going to do it for free while Spies will cost. Spies might even have a contract still with Ducati prohibiting riding for another team. KS will be great PR for the leghumpers but really there will nothing significant in his input that will see their program turn around, certainly not compared to a rider like Spies who has been on a world championship bike at Yamaha and Ducati's alsoran effort. .

F1 » Who shone brightest under the lights of Bahrain?


Got to be a real LH hater not to rate that as the performance of the race. DR drove well but moving from the doldrums of the grid past cars you should never have been behind in the 1st place if not for a grid penalty doesn't impress as much as fending off an equally talented driver in a equally capable car - notably on better sticker tires. Also it was for the win not or a points scoring position. If you cannot see that you are missing the point of the sport.

F1 » Wolff: Rule change requests ‘absurd’


Seakay, the show isn't impacted. We saw a brilliant race today with passing throughout the race, so much so that it was impossible to catch everything on camera. A brilliant race to the end. How a change of fuel regulator is going to improve on that I would love to know. The biggest criticism from the ''fans'' has been the noise, not the passing or the show overall. Only the losing teams minus MCL are complaining about the technical pieces and yes it is damningly obvious that were RB and Ferrari at the front there wouldn't be a peep out of them. The performance stats stated by Mercedes are damning as well, more efficient cars with near similar performance to last years cars. That is what is required of F1 if they want to bring car manufacturers into the fold. I'm not one of the green brigade but you'd have to be living in a world smaller than F1 to not see the competitive and marketable advantages of utilizing green technologies in F! and developing them. Audi certainly say it whe

F1 » Red Bull to appeal Ricciardo exclusion


Everyone defending RBR is missing a fundamental point. The same component was not changed on Sebastian Vettel's RB10. Why? If truly faulty wouldn't you change it on both cars? RBR knew the rules and as the item was deemed faulty at the last test and all teams agreed to continue using it no one should have been using anything else. RBR was clearly testing the capacity of the stewards to detect the difference. Testing the waters, pushing the envelope, is what F1 is about - only this time they got caught. Certainly lends credence to the idea of MW's car always being questionably faulty - aka the test bed for Vettel's car.

F1 » Ecclestone warns quieter F1 could be costly


Dumbest thing I have heard in a long time. ""I walked in the botanical gardens and you could hear the sound of the twin-seater F1 car of Paul Stoddart sweeping around the circuit, but you couldn't hear these new turbo cars. If you sat in the grandstand, you could hardly hear them coming down the straight. It's clearly in breach of our contract." LOL. since when has sound been a breach of contract - love to see that fine print. The event was a huge success, all tickets sold, not a dry eye in the place when the homeboy came good... and this idiot is going on about how he couldn't hear it in the botanical gardens. I'm no environmentalis, but that strikes me as a bit short-sighted... that noise pollution didn't permeate into the gardens... Silly for those complaining, esp. those who have never heard an old F1 motor. The sound is part of the experience but considering you only have your TV to benchmark from I think you are a bit out of your depth. Bernie is being Bernie... nothing to see he

F1 » Red Bull to appeal Ricciardo exclusion


physics: @BobaFett So both cars run the same sensor, was that the reason Vettel retired, so he can give the sensor to DR? The sensor was replaced two times during the weekend because it was faulty. Both sensors were provided by FIA, the sensor that was in the car during the race, was the first one used in the weekend, deemed faulty and then by advice from FIA ran with an offset to compensate for the deviation. Lets see what the verdict of FIA will be. Also do You change the light bulb in your bathroom after the one in the living room goes, that answers Your point for vettel's sensor not being changed...
Dude you need an analogy lesson, lol. That was the worst one yet. To my knowledge, and correct me if I am wrong, but Vettel's retirement had little or nothing to do with DR's race or that sensor - it wasn't a fuelign issue it was an engine caput issue. I haven't read anything linking the sensor to the poor engine performance RBR has been chasing all pre-sea
