MotoGP » Nicky Hayden visits WSBK


Oli: I hope Nicky goes to WSB and on a good bike, I think it'd be great for the series and I think he'd do well. Having said that, it'll still be a huge challenge for him. Been a while since anyone has gone from the middle order of MotoGP and been slotted straight into the front of WSB. De Puniet, Elias, Aoyama etc, have all struggled, and probably the last person to make the jump from the middle of the GP grid and win in WSB was Checa, and he took a couple of years to get going.
What about Melandri?

F1 » Hamilton ‘not against’ closed cockpit prospect


107SS2009: Unlike the geniuses that frequent this site to air their brightness the geniuses at the FIA failed to come down as hard as a ton of bricks on drivers disregarding waved double yellow flags which indicates great danger ahead and that they must slow down and be prepared to stop. And do please stop pushing the total BS that if a driver lifts off it indicates he did slow down, slow down he might be interpreted to have done but certainly wasn’t ready to stop having lost the car under double yellow waved flags at 203 KMH.
Thank you! FINALLY! I have found someone who says the same as I do! While it's sad a driver died, if all the drivers obeyed the flags to the spirit of the rules then this wouldnt have happened. Waved yellow flags mean BE PREPARED TO STOP and as you rightly point out, Bianchi was nowhere near prepared to stop.

F1 » Drivers: Bianchi death won’t change way we drive


And what if he had hit a marshall? Would we then be saying that races have to be stopped anyime 1 single marshall is within the confines of the circuit? It's not disrespectful to state the facts. The tractor didn't hit the Marussia, the Marussia hit the tractor. If drivers obey the simple rules, and that is to SLOW DOWN, it wouldn't matter if you parked the Titanic in the gravel trap, no one would hit it. I wonder if people would be making the same comments had Bianchi 'only' piled into a bunch of marshalls.

F1 » F1 2015 driver salaries published – but who earns most?


IE22: Its an absolute disgrace what Roberto Merhi is being paid if you take into account that he is putting his life on the line at every race
LoveF1: Flippin' 50 grand? To risk your life driving an F1 car? Roberto's Merhi's salary is what some rich people spend at the roulette tables in one weekend (or even one night) during the Monaco Grand Prix! He probably can't afford to go out spending the dosh at every F1 race he goes to drive at all year! Jut sit in his motorhome and read a magazine :-)
Bit of an exxageration I'd say. Sure it's peanuts in the grand scheme, but it's more dangerous drving to work on the roads each day plus, if he doesn't want to do it, there are plenty that will. Supply Vs Demand.

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden visits WSBK


bug1050: What about the current world superbike champion Guintoli?
Good point, I also forgot Biaggi. I overlooked Guinters because he never really had a decent crack at GP's. His rookie year on the Tech 3 showed some promise (except when he t-boned hoffman at the corkscrew) and then he was put on the Pramac Ducati which at the time was as a career ender as you could be. Won't forget that fantastic wet German perfomance with no traction control though.
