F1 » Going faster won’t deliver better racing - Hamilton


richard: smokey. speed is certainly relevant. it has to be matched by quicker driver reactions and driver skill to handle a car that would then be closer to the limit. if speed meant nothing, than put all the drivers into formula fords. there would be no need for f1
i didn't say speed was irrelevant, but speed with more driver aids doesn't increase the difficulty yet clearly reduces the spectacle. Drivers needed far better reactions when trying to handle a Cosworth through hard tyres with no tractional control and limited downforce.

MotoGP » Espargaro slams last-lap overtakes, pit stop ruling


An unwarranted sense of entitlement to be racing with the aliens. Where was he over a full season last year? Racing with HB is about his level. And yes, Smith hasn't whinged about his poor performance. Just admitted that he rode poorly, and that him and the team made a bad choice for race settings. Move on. I echo the sentiments about the much vaunted Brother. Its taken the arrival of Vinales to burst that particular bubble.

MotoGP » Mercedes leaves door open for Hamilton MotoGP try-out


Cris Zarate:
Oli: Pah MotoGP is for boys, Lewis. Road racing is where the men are. If you really wanted some fun you'd have skipped Bahrain and done mid-Antrim instead.
Maybe you are one of the people who can't ride big bikes that is why you are saying MotoGP are for boys.. Everyone know that Bikes, MotoGP or not MotoGP is for real men...
Shame you missed Oli's humour, because you got that badly wrong. Oli is an experienced racer, including the big bikes on the circuits and roads. Most racers, me included, wouldn't go near some of the stuff he has done.

MotoGP » Mercedes leaves door open for Hamilton MotoGP try-out


MrDonut:
psychicwarrior: I'd put money on him being faster than half the BSB grid within a year if he actually took up bikes full time. Look at some previous late comers to bikes like Bayliss and Biaggi (a really late starter who gave it a go for a laugh). Hamilton would do ok given time. For all Rossi's skills he never felt confident enough to jump ship to F1 when he po
Bayliss had a background in motocross, Biaggi had 9 seasons under his belt before riding anything near the power to weight of a GP/Superbike. They both learnt their craft before getting on a full GP bike, albeit starting at a later age than the current crop. Have you ridden with BSB riders? I think you might be shocked at what they can do!

Check Wikipedia for AE's stats. I can't believe someone with such a poor record has made it to GP level, yet alone on a factory ride! Both over-rated arm-waving cry babies that need to 'wind it in'. Remember when PE crashed in Moto 2 and blamed his team mate for going 'too fast' ?! What a numptee.....
And remember when all the armchair critics on here were saying Aleix should have Smith's ride at Tech3 or be given a full factory contract? The same critics who slagged Smith off for not having won Moto2. No doubt he is a quality rider (they all are at this level), but he has never shown championship winning potential. Vinales is his first decent team mate and the truth is out. Pol might get through his bad patch, but I wouldn't put money on it.
