F1 » Button excited by free F1 tyre choice

F1 should either force a single engine and chassis for all teams to use, or allow teams to test whenever they want. And while they're at it, they should get rid of that ridiculous max fuel use rule as well. I know which I would prefer. But the current situation is jut a farce.There is no way a team can catch up during the season when they made a design error. And yes, testing costs money but if you are strapped for budget, you don't belong in F1.

MotoGP » Marquez: I feel that we won the race

To those complaining that Rossi cut MM off: you must have not seen many races in Assen. If you would have, you would have known there is no room for 2 bikes in that chicane. If Rossi would have left MM more room the first turn, there would have been no room to make the second. If you want to make a pass there and make it stick, you need to be in front or at least level with the guy on the outside, If you are behind, like MM, you're lucky if you don't end up in the gravel. If you look at the footage in slow-mo, you can see MM is already sliding the front before contact. He was coming in so hot, he would probably binned it had he not used VR to slow him down. Even if he wouldn't' have binned it, from where he was on the track and how he was sliding, it would have been absolutely impossible to make the second part of the chicane and would have had to cut the corner. He made (another) do or die action, and fortunately nobody crashed or got injured. He gambled and lost.

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.
