WSS » Champion Van der Mark: I showed I’m the best


@alicihat it doesn't matter how good you are or how good your bike is, if you don't end the season with the most points, you were not the best that year. End of story. It is that simple. "To finish first, you first have to finish" Michael will finish first this year, therefor by definition this year he is the best WSS rider. That's why he's called the 2014 world champion.

F1 » Wolff: Rosberg felt ‘he needed to make a point’


MadMatandMe: Wolff & Lauda were wrong to complain about this incident being on lap 2. Rosberg was faster than Hamilton and Hamilton knew it, but if Rosberg got stuck behind Hamilton there was no way that Hamilton would 'let' him by at any point (as we have seen), so what choice did Rosberg have but to have a go? If Rosberg did not go for Hamilton early he would have ended up following Hamilton for 20+ laps and rooting his tyres in Hamilton's slipstream and that would have been the end of Rosberg's race. He had to make a move early.
Since when is the leading man responsible for the pass of the man behind? The leader should just pull over and let the other guy pass if he is faster? I don't know what you are smoking, but it must be really good stuff.

F1 » Bianchi not expecting Ferrari call-up


Weird idea, but perhaps it would be better if Ferrari focusses on their POS car, instead of their drivers. Everyone with half a brain knows they have 2 drivers that have the potential and ability to deliver if they give them a proper car. There is absolutely no reason at all to add yet another variable in the mix by replacing drivers that know the team and can tell the difference between old and new and can tell them if they are heading in the right direction.

MotoGP » Factory engine for 2015 Open Honda


@RaceRoad: Nakamoto wasn't bitching about the chassis, he was bitching that Yamaha (and Ducati) essentially leased a satellite factory bike with OpenClass software installed, instead of selling a different, new, OC bike like Honda did. And the chassis of the production racer is not identical to the factory racer. So even if you spoon in the factory engine, you would still have a different bike than that of the satellite teams, let alone the full factory outfit.

MotoGP » ‘Thumb brake’ appears on final day of Honda test

VonS: He will be better than Doohan.
only doohan didnt have the "i save you whatever mistake you make ecu" for me thats a way bigger achievement!
Yes but the NSR was only about 160 BHP about a 100 BHP down on todays bikes. I'm a a Doohan fan and always will be.
The NSR already made 165hp back in '92. The last generation NSR500 was at 180hp. It also weighed only 115-130kg, depending on the year and regulations, whereas the current bikes put 165kg on the scale. Regardless, racing a two-stroke with that much power and that little weight is truly a scary endeavor that requires big balls and ultimate rider control & attention at all times. Even a momentary lapse will make it chew you up and spit you out in just a fraction of a second.
