F1 » Magnussen admits snub ‘difficult to take’


ZEDX: I read that Ron was trying to get Danish sponsors on-board.. apparently Lego turned him down. Maybe Ron did want Kevin in the seat but was overruled by others (eg Honda). Not very encouraging when Eric says his (Kevin's) options to drive elsewhere alongside his T&R job will be limited... Let's hope Honda can find him something to do race-wise .. they power other series, so there must be a seat available somewhere so he can keep his motivation up/skills honed...
That's a shame - I'm sure the folks at Lego could have built a better car than McLaren! :-)

F1 » McLaren fails to reach driver decision


Paula Takington: O this is getting bloody ridiculous now and very unprofessional, If I was both drivers, id walk up to Ron Dennis and shake his hand, say we've had enough of these games, thanks but were done here and walk out on the team. then leave them with an even bigger problem.
Well put, and one of the most insightful comments posted. If both drivers walk, no doubt there will be a very long queue for the 2nd seat, but filled with drivers of far less class and quality than either JB or Magnussen.

MotoGP » 2016 MotoGP ECU to be ‘equal, easy, safe’


And if NO ONE has any electronic aids to mask rider talent/fuel efficiency/throttle control, etc. etc. wouldn't that level the playing field just the same - as well as saving tens of millions of dollars? Shouldn't the 'anti-wheelie' device be located in every rider's right wrist? Computer software may not be the sole reason for ruining modern Moto GP racing, but in the clear absence of any REAL benefits it has brought to the sport, isn't it time all these electronic aids were ditched? Riders don't want them. Fans hate them. 'Nuff said. So who is keeping them in the sport? And if big manufacturers threaten to walk away, then stuff 'em. When cottage industry bike builders start winning world titles, they'll be back in a flash.

F1 » F1: Rosberg vows to be 'on the offensive'


107SS2009: Here is something new to cool “Lulufanboysdown” although I doubt they will be interested in anything other than their epic Lulu. Yesterday Porsche scored their first WEC pole at Interlagos courtesy of Mark Webber. And, after the news that the Hulk will drive a 3RD Porsche next year articles by Auto Blid Motorsports first out as far back as October has resurfaced claiming that the 3rd Porsche car planned to be an “F1 CAR” entirely manned by F1 drivers, the names of both Alonso and Button were bandied as a possible companions to the Hulk.
Remind me again what this has to do with Hamilton? Just curious. Is there NOTHING you can't somehow link him to? What's the obsession about? Really, I'm not trying to be rude - I don't understand. This is really interesting and exciting stuff you're posting about sportscar racing, so why preface it with the jibe?

F1 » F1: Rosberg vows to be 'on the offensive'


Richard - Cont'd - As far as the engine freeze, I can definitely understand other teams' frustrations. Yet I wonder, if the shoe were on the other foot, if they would be behaving any differently? I don't now. Every F1 team works hard for any type of advantage (throughout the history of the sport) and they are all very loath to give it up when they have it. It doesn't always make for a perfect situation from season to season, but 'twas ever thus - some years we get great racing all across the grid, and others not. Unfortunately no one (not even Merc) knew beforehand just HOW far in front they would be this year. It's kind of the same thing with the stupid 'double points' rule, introduced precisely to end one teams dominance - and look how wrong that decision was! Anyhow, let's all hope for a much tighter field in 2015...!

F1 » F1: Rosberg vows to be 'on the offensive'


Richard- I totally accept your point about wanting to see close racing, as does, I'm sure, everyone on this site. The thing to remember, however, is that competition runs all the way through the sport, not just at the sharp end between drivers. If Merc are dominating, it's because the engineers found something no one else did. Accordingly they should enjoy the success until someone else steps up (which I have no doubts they will, and soon). In the same way, if a pit crew can change 4 tyres in 1.5 seconds, and the other teams can only do it in 3, should the faster pit crew deliberately 'slow down' to promote competition? They worked hard to reach that level. I think you see my point. I want a challenge to Merc just as badly as anyone,but I think it ought to be because of another teams' ability, instead of Merc slowing down. Cont'd -
