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.

MotoGP » MotoGP Penalty Points revised for 2014


All of the comments already made are a fair indication of how the FIM deliberately leaves gapping holes big enough to fly a jumbo jet through but the penalty points system is a good idea and should be introduced across all forms of motorsport. The idea of keeping the points for 365 days is to prevent riders from being tempted from doing what Prost, Senna and Schumacher did in F1, get to last race of season, two riders are just a few points apart so one decides to get the title by taking his rival off.

MotoGP » Moto3: Further cost cutting controls for 2015


This will test the ingenuity of KTM & Honda. Cost cutting ios all very fine but if it means that the qualityn ofn the racing suffers then Dorna have made a cut too far. That the factory KTM's will have the same engines as the teams that they supply will stop the works bikes having an advantage, this year the factory KTM bikes featured dual exhausts whereas the engines supplied to contracted teams, although ther advantage was tiny it was significant. Honda do not like to be beaten especially by a non Japanese company so will be prepared to spend enough of their considerable motorsport budget to ensure that they are top dog. To me the one team to watch out for is Mahindra, last season they did wonders with a bike that was outdated from tyhe start but so I understand have started this coming year with a clean sheet design.
