F1 » van der Garde wins court battle over Sauber drive

rbr46: Has VDG thought about the possibility of Sauber's future being jeopardised if he were to race? Then he is back to square 1, looking for a drive. No way will he be driving this weekend.
Give me 1 single reason why VDG should have any obligation, moral or otherwise, to put the teams interest over that of his own after the team screwed him over despite having a contract? It's about time a driver has the balls to stand up and force a team in F1 to open their eyes and make them realize a contract is a contract, not some worthless piece of paper filled with good intentions.

F1 » Van der Garde legal decision with Sauber delayed

107SS2009: Giedo will not drive for Sauber in Australia even if his action is upheld by the Australian court because a counter action will follow immediately by both Ericson and Nasr. Nobody on the grid can see what Giedo aims to gain by his action against Sauber.
Seems pretty clear to me. GvdG wants to get what he is owed, either by driving the car is their race driver for 2015 or monetary compensation for breach of contract. Pretty straight forward and simple, and I think every single person on the grid understands this.

F1 » Van der Garde begins legal hearing against Sauber

richard: v de g was PAYING (or rather his pa-in-law was) for his drive. is it possible that there may have been some hiccup in the transfer of the money? somehow i doubt that sauber would have assets seized. more likely he will be paid off not to drive. he wasnt that hot anyway.
Doesn't matter if he is a pay driver or not. He has a contract. Sauber should either honor that contract, or they should pay off that contract. It is that simple. The fact that he has to go to arbitration first and now file suit in Australia in an attempt to get Sauber to give him what he is owed says nothing about vdg but everything about Sauber.

MotoGP » Michelin cite grip balance for Sepang falls

The change to 17" wheels is going to be a bigger change than the tires IMO. The tires is just a matter of adjusting (bike and rider) to the different characteristics, however the 17" wheels are a disadvantage for small guys like Pedrosa. Bigger wheels are heavier and make it much harder to change direction at speed. Since they're all pretty much midgets these days, I wouldn't be surprised to see more crashes in the 2nd half of the races than we are used to next year.

F1 » Raikkonen convinced Ferrari heading in 'right direction'

LoveF1: ......" heading in the right direction to winning ways......" Whenever I read a very generic-sounding statement like this from a driver, why do I get the feeling there will be no race victory or championship victory for another 5 or 6 years or more??
What is he supposed to say? They may have sat in the car to fit their seats, but that's it. It hasn't moved a foot on its own power.

F1 » F1: Streiff apologises as FIA legal action looms

throttlemeister: That same tag team tried to do something similar to Gary Hartstein, except they couldn't sue him for defamation so they went after his employer and tried to get him fired instead. See That bunch makes me sick. Someone needs to go into the FIA and clean house.
And so it' can be assumed that the likes of Streiff and Hartstein makes you a very happy man.
I don't know what kind of flawed logic makes you come to such a stupid (and incorrect) conclusion, but hey, whatever rocks your boat.

F1 » F1: V6 engine ‘attracts new fanbase’

JedPB67: A sound doesn't improve quality of racing. A load of you are saying you're not going to anymore F1 because of the noise, well if you want to spend £150 on a ticket to listen to a certain pitch of noise then you're turning up for the wrong reason in my book.
You're entitled to your opinion of course, but imo if you want to watch F1 racing, you're better off staying at home in front of the TV. You see it better there and you get to see more. If however, you want to experience F1 racing, you need to be trackside and sound is a HUGE part of that experience.
