MotoGP » Crutchlow loathe to run soft tyre 'out of principle'

Cal stop trying to pseudo-intellectualise the issue of the soft tyres, they are deemed legal for use by Ducati, just use them, you are not Jean Paul Sartre. The idea of refusing to adapt your style to better suit the Ducati, is either plain stupidity or supreme arrogance. Perhaps you're worried that you can't adapt? The best people in sport & life adapt in order to win, as circumstances dictate .If you weren't willing to be flexible, why did you go to Ducati, a role you knew damn well would involve a lot of development / trial & error. If you carry on like this, I'd rather Ducati gave the ride to Scott Redding, he might have an attitude problem, but I believe he'd ride the bike hard. Ducati is closing the gap to Honda, the other Duke riders are doing their part, are you CC?

F1 » Vettel disappointed by Red Bull upgrade

107SS2009: As I said on another thread, Renault had a record of software updates this season, yes they made progress but there is no way they are going to catch Mercedes by introducing software updates, the only hope they have is by starting with a clean sheet of paper (new PU). These Renault software upgrades are being produced jointly with RBR software technicians assigned at Viry.
Given that engine development for 2015 is not fully unfrozen, and the teams have to use their 2014-spec crankcase, crankshaft and air valve system, lets hope Renault & Ferrari haven't made any fundamental errors in their designs.

F1 » Raikkonen expects to retire after 2015

This must be music to Ferrari's ears!!, a driver whose motivation & work ethic have never been the best, is now officially counting down the days & dollars until he retires. They should have taken a risk on a rookie hotshot that would have worked their backside off, for a fraction of the salary, they might have also discovered the next superstar, and been able to sign them up on a long contract.

F1 » Wolff expects Hamilton to come back stronger

I believe that Nico Rosberg is intelligent enough to know the game, that the politically shrewd Wolff is playing... By praising Hamilton he is hoping to keep him under control, and if Lewis does start to win all the races, Wolff looks like a strong ally of Hamilton's, therefore making him feel like staying in the team. All looks very one-sided against Rosberg?, on the contrary, the praise "Genius driver", "Come back stronger" etc aimed at Hamilton, despite Rosberg's back to back wins, can have a serious side-effect, piling pressure on Lewis to perform, to live up to his rep. We know, and I'm 100% sure that Rosberg knows, that Hamilton has struggled under intense pressure in the past, so he plays the long game, and keeps quiet & focused.
