going from no internet streaming presence to F1 races being available exclusively through the iTunes Store would be classic Bernie

Classic Bernie would be taking control of Apple thru bribery.

It would be great if one could subscribe to F1 and have the races waiting for you on the Apple TV.

MotoGP yesterday... it was really nice to watch a wet race start for once. All the guys rode off in a cloud of mist and there were plenty of fallers. It was exactly the way it should be when you're playing with the limit.

Oh, you just want to walk right on the edge with the MotoGP, don't you? smile.gif Please, everyone, no two-wheel spoilers.

I must admit that I'm actively searching out racing that doesn't take place behind a safety car. I managed to find some outside of F1's safe space.

It was a good race, no doubt.

Lorenzo has absolutely no rain chops and in general he's lost something after announcing for Ducati.

Rossi doesn't listen to his team, and I don't understand what he's thinking. He could have won the race.

Agreed. The first point is bewildering.

Perhaps he needs to starts races behind a safety car too? I have just the place.

Formula Pussy again. God forbid they use full wets and drive to the speed the track allows for.

It's the rules. They can't make changes to ride height or other settings after qualifying starts, and the Pirelli wet tires don't have a sufficiently larger radius to produce the necessary increase in ride height to avoid aquaplaning. With things as they are, they literally wouldn't have been able to drive around the Hungaroring without floating off the track.

Ok so drive to the speed the track allows for. If you slow down you won't aquaplane. Frankly the Pirelli wets are not fit for purpose. Make a tire that can run in truly wet conditions. Aquaplaning takes place because tire can't displace the water fast enough, not sure what that has to do with ride height. You did accurately describe the tire issue, but it's not related to ride height.

There were what, 5 red flags in Q1? Come on. It's not racing.
