MotoGP » Valentino Rossi lashes out after Qatar nightmare


Its going to end in tears. Cant see Rossi/Ducati seeing out the year. Ducati will bring in a test rider who will do equally bad but at a fraction of the cost of Rossi. As to the future, why would Yamaha or Honda want Rossi on one of their bikes ? I am sure they would veto it out of spite. Now Rossi on a 'suped-up' CRT bike in 2013 with an Aprilia engine might be interesting but I fear he could not live with a another year of being at the back. Or there is WSBK....

MotoGP » Dark night for 'worse' Rossi


It will soon reach a point when a) Rossi is simply not justifying his salary to Ducati/Marlboro, b) he will not be missed in the Motogp paddock by Dorna and c) his once loyal fans turn against the GOAT. When these are true - Rossi will be gone gone from Motogp whether he quits or is pushed. I would love to see him in WSBK just to p*ss off Biaggi.

IndyCar » Your views: The future for IndyCar


What is the long term strategy for open wheel racing in the US? We've had Cart, Champcar, IRL. Two series competing in a market only big enough for one. The IRL was created as an oval only series and here we are contemplating going majority road course. Is open wheel racing in the US a domestic or international series ? Surfers Paradise has gone as has Japan and yet there is Brazil plus possibly China. Is there a market in China? Agree about comments re US drivers. Marco may be an Andretti but he ain't going to be a champ as he stands. Drivers like Franchitti, Wheldon have come up through the competitive European series, Wheldon was a contemporary of Jensen Button who is an F1 champion. Plus they have adapted to ovals really well. Just like Nigel Mansell. I look at the organisation of F1, motogp and world Superbikes as well as strategy and the IRL looks amateurish in comparison

IndyCar » Series opts out of Vegas return in 2012


Ralf - I believe this is the first time Indycar has raced at Vegas for some time. I remember there being a Champ Car race at night and It was next to impossible to overtake. Indycar needs to look at the high speed banked ovals it races on and whether it wishes to risk another unfortunate incident. I also question the quality of some of the newer drivers especially those pay-drivers and experience levels on ovals which are pretty well unique to the US
