Lamborghini to unveil new limited model in Pebble Beach
I miss the Egoista...

$2.2 million Trion Nemsis makes video debut, but lacks the 2,000 bhp engine
I'd just love to see the gearbox, tyres and other drive train elements capable of actually using the output of that engine on a daily basis. If it exists, of course.

Alfa Romeo to position Quadrifoglio Verde as a BMW M competitor
"Alfa Romeo will position Quadrifoglio Verde as a rival to BMW M and Mercedes-AMG" - Audi must feel sad.

Ferrari has not closed gap on Mercedes - Briatore
Barcelona was actually the exception, Ferrari has been closer (than last year) in other races. In Malaysia they won because Mercedes made a strategic error, true, but last year they wouldn't have been close enough to take advantage of that type of opportunity. If you want to make a fair comparison, it's Williams that's at the same level as they were last year. The fact that Ferrari is now (well) ahead of them shows that they've improved. The fact that Mercedes is still way ahead and that they'll win this year's championship hands down is another discussion.

OK. Now how about turning up the show as well?

International press slams Mercedes 'absurdity'
Yeah, well, if he still loses the championship while driving the best car and with a 10 point advantage over a good-but-not-great team-mate, he's not worthy of being a world champion. Period.

International press slams Mercedes 'absurdity'
Oh, please. Let's not over dramatize just for the sake of selling papers. OK, it was a bad call, OK, they effectively lost him the race. But in the end, Hamilton still leads the championship by 10 points, he still ended-up on the podium and the mistake itself wasn't *that* bad. It actually came to be precisely because the team wanted to make sure that he wins the race easily. At the end of the day I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by Hamilton's attitude: knowing him, I thought he'd rush to publicly blame the team and victimize himself... Yet he was surprisingly quiet. He probably knows that the same team that made the mistake and robbed him of the win actually gave him an utterly dominant car last year and the best car this year, a car that enabled him to fight for the win in the first place. He also knows that he'll most probably win this year's championship as well, since his team-mate is utterly inconsistent and Vettel hasn't got the weapons to mount a proper challenge.

BMW Motorrad Concept 101 unveiled
Well, I am a biker and I don't like it. Any bit of it. What's with that huge wheel at the front? It's useless on a cruiser. And the disproportionate rear end? 1600cc inline six? Don't see the point. Didn't see it on the 1600 GT, can't see it here either. This thing wants a big twin (V or boxer), or a V4. It's not a tourer, it's a cruiser. And while I like the design of the 1600 GT (for the bike it is), I don't like the front light cluster recycling they did here. So, no.

Hamilton contract a blow for Rosberg - Prost
Well, Hamilton beat Rosberg to the title pretty much fair and square last year. Does that entitle him for a pay rise ? Surely.

Now Hulkenberg linked with Ferrari move
I think both these guys deserve a chance in a top team, but I'm more in favor of Nico here, simply because he's been in F1 for 5 years now, has been through the worse (losing his seat solely because of money) and he's older.

Honda engineer admits no F1 wins in 2015
The Mercedes and Ferrari engines use probably between 80 and 90% of their power most of the time, Renault even less due to driveability problems and reliability concerns. So the 70% figure is not really "out of this world".

Alonso hits back after 'dark and moody' jibe
Does Alonso not realize that this type of reply actually confirms what di Montezemolo and others (including drivers) have said about him? I mean, what interest could di Montezemolo have in telling untrue stories like these, since he was fired by Ferrari and working for another, unrelated company now?!

'Arms race' to decide 2015 title - Vettel
Me thinks that Mercedes controls the situation and that Briatore was right. The guy's an old jerk, but he's always been a reliable source of information.

Vettel a F1 great, Hamilton 'not yet' - Moss
Not sure about that. There will always be critics in F1. Vettel was accused of not being able to win a race except from the lead. Then, of not being able to overtake. Then, of only being able to win with the best car and thanks to Newey - and so on. He has proven them wrong one by one. Still, critics are strong. Why would this be any different with Hamilton? Especially since winning with Mercedes last year wasn't that hard really: he just had to beat Rosberg, a good driver for sure, but one that shows more and more weaknesses. I mean, Vettel had the best car for a few years, but what Hamilton was driving last year was in another league compared to the competition who, because of the rules, was not even being able to catch up. Anyway, what Moss is saying here is not a critic per se, it's more of a bump for him to get better and concentrate solely on F1. He'll have all the time in the world for hip-hop once he retires.

Vettel a F1 great, Hamilton 'not yet' - Moss
The guy's really fast over one lap and really talented, but is not fully concentrated on his motorsports career. That's why we see him having dips of form and being unstable emotionally - both in his public and private life. So yes, I do understand Moss' point and support it.
May 5th, 2015 3:05pm
Hamilton ready for Vettel-like title run
Yeah, for sure. Albeit one of the fastest guys out there, Hamilton is also one of F1 most unstable drivers. It doesn't take much to destabilize him. That could clearly be seen no later than this year in Malaysia when he began more or less arguing with his engineers on the radio during the race when he felt he lost the victory to Vettel.

Sainz believes he can beat 'new Senna' Verstappen
Hey, I didn't say he wasn't good - or great for that matter. I think he'll be a very good driver, fighting for the championship at some point. But calling him "the new Senna" after 4 races...?!?

Ricciardo on 'same level' as Vettel - Marko
"Red Bull might help team boss Christian Horner to bring his GP2 outfit Arden into F1 so that it can be a 'B' team" - isn't that Toro Rosso is already?

Vettel says Ferrari could be last F1 team
For a guy like him, money really isn't such a big point. What he wants above all is a car in which to be able to fight for the championship.

Winterkorn wins out over Piëch, has full backing of VW's Executive Committee
Hah. Piëch gets a taste of his own medicine. The guy's always been ruthless. Furthermore, he was the one that promoted Winterkorn from Audi.

Hamilton-to-Ferrari rumours fire in Bahrain
You're right. Furthermore, Ferrari never manifested any interest towards hiring Hamilton. If for some reason they don't take the option on Kimi for 2016, there are others waiting in line (Bottas). Though, I really hope Hamilton won't have it as easy next year and have a real fight on his hands for the championship.

Alonso, Vettel have 'number 1' status - Hamilton
He's probably right about Alonso. Maybe even about Vettel. And perhaps he (Hamilton) doesn't explicitly ask for preferential treatment in his contract. But I do remember a certain race at Spa in 2012 when the guy went to tweet telemetry data from the team (McLaren) just to show how the new from wing his team-mate had and he didn't made a speed difference over one lap. If that wasn't frustration about not being the team's "goldenboy", I don't know what is.

Volkswagen GTI Supersport Vision Gran Turismo revealed [video]
You're right. But what do they sell? Everyday cars for average Joes. So I think that they don't really *want* to dissociate themselves from this image. They have other brands in their portfolio that can play the "exciting" game.

Raikkonen on track for 2016 Ferrari deal - reports
I really like Kimi (who doesn't?), but as far as pure performance goes, I think Ferrari would be better off with Bottas or Hülkenberg.

Sky presenter suspended for Alonso insult
I also don't think Ferrari will be able to take the title from Mercedes this year, but I'm not so sure about next year. For the time being, Ferrari's resurgence is supported by a win and two podiums. McLaren's progress is demonstrated by... what exactly? That they're not dead last anymore? Or that they're only 2 seconds adrift now - instead of 5? Alonso is pretty old already and the last thing he needs is to lose more time to develop a car into a winner. I don't want to be cynical, but I somehow see McLaren being very competitive again in a few years time, benefiting from (the then retired) Alonso's work. He made a wrong choice for 2015, that's a fact. It remains to be seen how things turn out in 2016, but hey: had he stayed put at Ferrari this year, he could've been able to at least win some races and then jump ship for 2016 if McLaren showed great improvement indeed.
