F1 » Kate Walker: Racing towards the future


Spent a good few hours over the last days watching the qualifying for tomorrows race at Le Mans, great cars but it is a shame that the new Corvette didnt get its homologation through in time but the fight between Audi, Toyota and Porsche for the top spot was brilliant The factor that the1 car was rebuilt overnight after such a crash was brilliant, plus the fact that after such a crash the driver was virtually unharmed Plus even the diesel cars sound far better than the current crop of F1 monstrosities plus with the differential of speeds between the classes means that the drivers have to be ever watchful plus plenty of passing The attempt by Zeod to complete a racing lap around Le Mans using just battery power will be a real milestone

MotoGP » Rossi: We destroyed the front tyre


Unfortunately Dorna are going down the same road as the FIA has in F1, mess about with the tyres until the product becomes a danger to those who have to depend on them. The current tyre specs mean that the tyres slide and then suddenly grip, when they grip they are inconsistent, sometimes they chew themselves to bits another time they cast the rider off. Dorna should leave the tyres alone otherwise someone is going to get killed.

F1 » Ricciardo excluded from Australian GP


It would seem that RBR were again choosing to ignore the FIA, and it would seem that they were given more than one chance to comply with what the FIA asked but Horner chose to ignore them and decided a computer program was more apt. If the fuel flow sensor was not working properly is irrelevant, the same could have happened to Mercedes or Ferrari engined cars, if RBR are allowed to do this then all must be allowed which would make a farce of the regulations. Certainly RBR's lack of pace during winter testing would make me suspicious if they showed such an improvement then blame a sensor for everything.

F1 » Global TV audience ‘fell by 50 million’


F1 was so predictable that few people who are genuine F1 fans even bother to watch a race from start to finish, it is now a three tier championship, just occassionally a midfield runner squeezed into the top ten runners. Add to the lack of difference between any of the Tilke designed tracks, yes the new regs will make it a bit hit and miss this coming season but once 2015comes it will revert to predictability. Nowadays I read about the races and watch the MotoGp instead, at least they do race each other not follow each other like F1 where the aero denies the cars the ability to pass each other without artificial means such as DRS.
