F1 » Hamilton admits to ‘fear of failure’


George Zaidan: yup staying a one hit wonder must be weighing on his mind constantly especially when his only competition has been ho hum until now in an equal machine. not winning the 2014 WDC will be very telling... probably not to his fans though, I'm sure they have their excuses all thought out and at the ready
I think the excuses will be coming from Toto, George, as they have been since the subsequent race after Lewis Hamilton's winning streak came to an end, and reliability became the fundamental force behind Nico's momentum.

WSBK » Sykes to remain with Kawasaki in 2015, 2016


stonapersona: the kawi is good in the minor leagues, but what has it done recently on the big stage = motogp?.
who cares, you can't purchase those bikes from the dealer, and what kind of factory with no political pull would risk having to get jerked around by Bridgestone or Michelin? I guess Suzuki think they have a shot, but to be honest, the only guy whom the tires are suiting works for Repsol, despite last race. Those asymmetric slicks might even help MM with his fishing the front end technique in trying to limit how wide his bike runs at circuits which have lots of sweeping turns. But wtfe, MotoGP is a pure marketing exercise for brand name only. WSBK is much more interesting and has much more interesting action. If WSBK is failing it's only because the 90's are over, and the world is getting too serious to stare at interesting things on a tube. GPs still can manage to hold on to the believers though, the hard core zealots who like a good soap.

MotoGP » Crutchlow would prefer Rea as team-mate


grantrd: Rea has already been rewarded by Honda, he got Stoners bike for two races............how many other riders would have killed for that? I've said it before he didn't really impress on that bike either......Now everyone is going to say that he didnt crash and he was solid and that he needed more time blah blah.........that was his golden opportunity and he didnt take it. The fact that he didnt crash showed that he wasnt trying hard enough. He has had other offers in SBK, he even said he was offered the panigale before Davies and he said no thanks he would rather ride the Blade than the red dustbin............. if he is offered an open honda then he should take it with both hands......
he did beat Rossi in his second race. If the bikes were not riddled with electronics and Bridgestone did not have such specific tires I might agree with you, but given Rea's limited testing and running on the bike, he didn't do too shabby.

MotoGP » Redding waiting on Gresini for MotoGP 2015


Garcia: I'm glad to hear that Honda want Redding on a factory bike, he definetly has done more than enough to deserve it. The problem is which one... Crutchlow and Miller will go to LCR and Gresini are switching to Aprilia..? ... I really hope he can get on a good bike because he's a great rider from a great generation of agressive moto2 riders Marquez, Iannone, Espargaro. I am sure Honda know it and I hope can arrange to get him on a good bike.
Honda only need one rider winning the championship on their bike, and maybe a backup. Unless Scott has a bank or oil company backing him up, I doubt he will get very far with Honda. The execs know the guys staring at the TV only care about who is winning, everyone else is supporting cast.

F1 » Hamilton not a fan of direction of F1


get rid of throttle/brake by wire, get rid of the team radio, no telemetry links (only after the race can they collect information), and let the cars run with twice as much power, and even more down force, and offer a larger variety of tires. More variables equals more opportunities for teams to succeed, less variables equals the same people winning over and over and over and over again. More risks, and perhaps even a ballast system, like in SuperGT which is fairly good at offering different teams the chances to succeed.

MotoGP » Crutchlow would prefer Rea as team-mate


WBS:
Motojunky: WOW. I would have thought Cal would like to fly solo in a team. After all every teamate he has had, has made him look 2nd rate. LCR made a big mistake IMHO.
well Cal knows Rea and his capabilities . Cal is probably a little afraid a newbie like Miller could outride him big time and show him up as not fast enough for the very top
That has about as much a chance happening as Nico Terrol or Sandro Cortese winning another championship.
