BSB » ‘Emotional’ Bridewell beats Brookes to BSB ‘bronze’

Listening to Tommy at Brands, there is no love lost between him and Brookes as he said beating him was the best part but that's no surprise as Brookes is a blow hard, talks big and never delivers (much over rated). Must be a nightmare as a team mate as if Brookes was as good as he thought he was he would have been right up there fighting for 1st in the championship. If Muirs has dropped Tommy for Brookes for 2015 then good luck to them.. Well done Tommy, Ollie would be proud...

F1 » F1: Mattiacci sees Raikkonen’s pace improving

Doubt Ferrari will get better next year with Mattiacci in charge (seems to know very little about running an F1 team) as they have lost their best asset (like him or not Alonso is a good driver) Alonso and the car is clearly hard to drive as Raikkonen has looked very average in it, almost too average to keep his seat! Can't see Vettel changing much for next season as he has also looked pretty average in the new style of cars so it might be some years before they come back to where they were..

MotoGP » 'Devastated' Crutchlow falls from podium on final lap

I think Cal knows in his heart he should of backed off more in the braking areas on that last lap. By backing off in just the braking areas means pushing through the corners and taking care slowing down as the heat is generated in the corners as the heat has to be there first as you brake. You don't make heat once braking.. He knew the others had all gone down on the same tyre in the braking areas so should have used his head as he had at least a 5sec lead over the line from Lorenzo going in to that last lap who was going backwards and he knew this! To be fair he would have got second wheeling home from where he dropped it so I think he just got carried away and lets face it it's not the first time he has done this in Moto GP as he did very similar things on more than one occasion on the Yam.. I really like him and he's a fighter but I don't think he will ever be a champ at this level as he lacks something on the mental side.. (He never even won BSB or WSBK and had decent bikes)

F1 » ‘Unnecessary’ error costs Rosberg more F1 title ground

WB16: Low fuel or not Rosberg would never of got Lewis as Lewis drove around at any easy pace for the whole race. Rosberg clearly panicked at the turn 2 as he must of thought this was the closest he would get for an overtake and went for a gap that was clearly not there and completely out braked himself..
I agree with the 2nd paragraph. But, the gap was clearly there at the end of 2nd turn. To be honest, Rosberg made Hamilton look like a sitting duck. But torched the tires. This is Rosberg's brake bias woes as opposed to Hamilton's in Canada. Hammi smoked his brakes b/c he had too much bias to the rear. Rosberg torched the fronts b/c there was too much front bias coupled with a smooth surface and cold tires. Ham was correct to hold back. Well played. That is not to say that Hamilton would have stayed behind him for the first lap, let alone the race. But Rosberg looked racey. So, we missed a good scrap. Ham camp don't care. [

F1 » ‘Unnecessary’ error costs Rosberg more F1 title ground

Buzz45: He may have messed up at the beginning of the race but after that he drove a fantastic race. I am guessing he would have been a bit low on fuel at the end of the race otherwise we may have seen a good duel between him and lulu, maybe we will get one or two in the next races,
Hope so too as that will be great.. Low fuel or not Rosberg would never of got Lewis as Lewis drove around at any easy pace for the whole race. If Lewis had thought he had a chance of catching him he would have simple increased his pace as Brundle mentioned throughout the race "Lewis looked like he was driving an out lap".. Rosberg clearly panicked at the turn 2 as he must of thought this was the closest he would get for an overtake and went for a gap that was clearly not there and completely out braked himself.. Fingers crossed neither of them do this over the final races so we get a good fight..

F1 » Rosberg seeks answers for Hamilton defiance

Rosberg simply never got closer than 1 second before the main straight, which meant Hamilton would have had to back off too much to let him pass as he was fighting Alonso to the end of the race at that time! Plus he's only fighting Rosberg at this point for the championship so why would he let his main competitor through. The other way around Rosberg would have done the same thing as Hamilton and made him pass him fair and square..

F1 » Alonso praises ‘unbelievable’ Ricciardo

WB16: Great to see Alonso playing mind games with Vettel by saying how great his mate is!! No love lost there then....
What mind games? Riccardo is absolutely 100% deserving of such praise and Alonso hasn't been fought so hard in a long time, hence his acknowledgement. Better than the Vettel/Alonso dual recently.
Of course Riccicardo is driving great, that goes without question and your other points are true but the reason for Alonso saying it like he is , is to wind up Vettel. I think he simply believes the 4 titles came easy to him with the best car by far over that time period and a pretty average team mate who was not even allowed to push for victories when it was his day, due to team orders, so the respect is not as high as he as for others....
