F1 » Button wants Honda push on power before reliability


the problem is, power is one dimension of a 'complex' problem. And realistically, there is no point in building a motor with a 100hp more if it will grenade itself after a few minutes. It's just a waste of time and money. Fuel restrictions, and testing limitations have screwed over lots of teams in GPs, you think people would get the clue about it's effects in F1. The people benefiting the most from a lack of testing are the large factory efforts. The ones hurting the most are teams like Manor and Sauber. The ones hurting the most from a lack of opportunity/diversity are the small teams, not the mega factories that can spend millions on a very specific problem set. What is the point in having a "prototype" class if you can't test and evolve during the season? What is the point of forcing teams to buy expensive power units while talking out the side of your mouth about saving money. Define corruption.

F1 » Renault convinced it has podium performance now


considering 3rd on the grid was 1.3 seconds slower than Lewis, I guess anything is possible. The real snapper is Williams had a horrible package for Spa, and Ferrari were seemingly focused only on the race, so every thing looks a little closer than it probably is. Of course reliability is still an issue, at least for RIC, and Kvyat was on a different tire strategy that had him looking faster than he actually was.

F1 » Max Yamabiko: De-constructing Pirelli de-laminations


I just think it's worth noting turns 3,5,12,17 and 18, drivers constantly going beyond the limits of the track and the effects of using a different surface, uneven surfaces, suspension loads, load changes and the fact that Pirelli probably do not engineer their tires to be run in anger over uneven surfaces. Of course if Pirelli were allowed to do more testing, especially at the tracks where tires have a history of exploding, Pirelli might be able to produce more reliable tires and have better data to substantiate their claims.

rob01: The longest a medium tire has run this year was Massa 172km in Bahrain nico managed 138km in Barcelona.
right, and that would place Vettel at over 190.km given 27 and some ~20% of a lap (7km long lap). An almost safe assumption for an outlier, especially given the number of times the drivers blew the track limits.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: Moto2 not best feeder ground for MotoGP


of course Moto2 is the best feeding ground for MotoGP, it's where the "fans" get to start building up their expectations for the next best hotness. It's the pool the sponsors use, even if some interests are so desparate to pull from Moto3 in order to "meet expectations". Anyone worth their salt knows they have no chance in MotoGP unless they are favored by Yamaha or Repsol.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Better to fight on same bike


99Bunny: someone make this fellow understand that the tyres being used are the same which were being used in 2010, 2011,2012,2013 ....from last year onwards came this heat resistants which ...
they have different tires for different tracks. They don't have the same tires they have had year in and year out. They say it's a control tire, but it's really a controlled spectacle for people who appreciate being lied to. If you worship liars it's on you, but Bridgestone have changed up the tires significantly since they brought in the 2009 models. They even have qualifying tires again. "heat resistants" lolz. MotoGP is for people who can't comprehend F1, I really thing that is the case. I mean if you really look at the demographics Dorna is looking at, people who like crashes, and stupidity. I live in the US and have been subject to NASCAR, it's pretty obvious what sells. Grid girls and violence. at least to the LCD.

MotoGP » Riders comment on Kent’s proposed MotoGP jump


DBL:
madh4tt3r: haha bradders comment on it is classic and fair play to him, if you give advice when you are clearly better(at that stage and still presently) and he didnt listen then why try comment again now.
I'm guessing it was something along the lines of "No, don't take the Tech 3 Mistral ride in Moto 2 it's a terrible bike" that he ignored.
Nah, there have only been about two-ish teams able to compete for the championship for a while now. MVDS, Pons, Ajo's new challenger and Marquez's Monlau/Repsol effort being somewhere in the mix. Redding got a good chance, but the tire swap ended his hopes, and the rest of it seems to be about which passport you carry. Smith probably made the right call with a guaranteed pick up after riding the donkey for a while. Would be interesting to see what Luthi could do with one of the top teams in Moto2.

MotoGP » Moto2: Suter to support ‘at least four riders’ in 2016


cmon boys, Dani is useful, for being MM whipping boy. And we all know MM had the fastest bike down the straight, oh he didn't top out like Pol but his bike was untouchable from a draft attack, never mind he had a whole school and Spain's biggest GP sponsor pushing for him. "You have no choice ... The game is rigged, and nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care ... It's called the [insert your favorite authority here] dream, because you have to be a sleep to believe it." (George Carlin, RIP)
