F1 » Ex-F1 driver Chilton plans for IndyCar in 2016


Cont'd - really try and weed out the current crop of pay drivers. I understand that 'gentlemen drivers' have always been a part of F1, but in recent seasons, their impact - and the gap between their abilities vs. the pros - has increased tenfold. It says more about the ill health of the sport that teams need drivers with bucketloads of cash (and not much else, it would seem, as in the case of Sr. Maldonado) just to keep them afloat instead of being able to properly compete. In any case, good luck to Max, wherever he goes. He's just trying to do his thing, that's all. Hoefully he'll find himself in a better situation in Indycar.

F1 » Ex-F1 driver Chilton plans for IndyCar in 2016


RDix: Max's family has a big part in funding Carlin. Max was a joke of an F1 driver and will most likely be an even bigger joke in Indycar when he has to run 230mph down the straights of an oval. Must be nice to have a loaded father who can fund his way into anything and everything he wants to try. He may be able to handle a season in Lights without looking horrible but when he gets to the big cars and try's to drive 225 into turn one at Indy he'll be right back where he was in F1, the back of the pack trying to stay out of everyone's way.
Fair enough about his dad's deep pockets - but how well would you (or any of us) do behind the wheel, I wonder? A car that couldn't compete at the sharp end of the grid, or against Mercedes (like, let's face it, about 90% of the field) doesn't necessarily make Chilton a 'joke'. I think he's a bit of a soft target for posters on this site. It might be more accurate (and fair) to suggest that F1 try as much as possible to

F1 » F1: FIA pursues legal action over Streiff's Bianchi comments


Prayers, best wishes and strong thoughts of support to Jules - not this B*LLSH*T bickering about what should have been done...as if ANY of us has a crystal ball! Just take as many lessons from this tragedy and - with a little dose of empathy and humility - move on a prepare for the next accident with better knowledge. A lawsuit will achieve nothing.

F1 » F1: FIA pursues legal action over Streiff's Bianchi comments


The FIA have done far more all on their own to bring their organisation into disrepute than anything Streiff could possibly say. It would appear that taking legal action over comments that really can't damage their reputation (any more than they themselves already have by their own antics over the past two decades) is a bit over the top. methinks the (FIA) lady doth protest too much...

MotoGP » In memory of... MotoGP’s craziest winter


shakennstirred: Eddie was awesome in 89 no one thought he would win the title, but he road the wheels off the Honda. because he didn't court the press he was easy to forget by some. but he was one of the best and to win 4 titles in the company he rode against just show what a great champ he was. I seen him race all his Gp bikes and in 89 he was anything but steady Eddie, I still have a picture I took at donington 89 on my wall of Eddie wheeling out of the foggy esses
I have that same poster! Two stroke 500's RULE! :-)

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 1st


One needn't be a fan of Valentino Rossi to see that his value as a rider and to the sport of Moto GP is incalculable. Absolutely nothing can (or should) be taken away from the talents of Marquez, and for sure the world is (possibly) seeing the 'second coming' with his generation. However, it will be a VERY long time before we see the likes of a sportsperson who not only has dominated his field, but also managed to transcend the sport with sheer strength of personality and magnetism. Taking snipes at Rossi really make his detractors look rather pathetic. He won't be around too much longer (sadly!) so my suggest is to simply enjoy the amazing things he brings to our beloved sport while he still has his mojo - with luck, that will be for at least another three years!

F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2014: 1st


Way to go Danny! Whether his wins were 'deserved', or the result of others' bad luck, the fact is, he was there to pick up the pieces and take advantage, as any talented and hungry driver should. A win is a win, (pretty much) however it comes, and he's definitely made the most of what he's been given to drive. With any luck - and common sense - F1 will someday become a place where at least most of the grid have a fighting chance, rather that one team dominating. And yes, I know that more often than not, that's been the case with the last two decades in the sport (McLaren, Williams, Ferrari, Red Bull, etc.). Still, here's hoping for a more even spread in 2015. In any case, well done Ricciardo!
