How did Honda mess things up so badly in F1? It's as if they don't know what they are doing. Sticking rigidly to their philosophy of internal development has really hampered theirs and partner team development. Pulling out after the financial crisis  and then having to watch what was essentially their team go on to win the championship, in the first year of the blown diffuser, must have messed with their heads.

I was at Silverstone last weekend and had the best time ever! My mate won a pit walk for Thursday so we got to see into the garages and met Leclerc, Ericsson, Vettel, Jacques Villeneuve, Anthony David

Thought it was a great race today. One of the more entertaining in quite some time. There were lots of battles going on and I thought it was great. I feel sorry for both Haas drivers, obviously someth

Alonso tearing into the team for his piece of shit car over the radio is what kept me interested in F1 last season.  Long may he stay at McLaren and they keep putting sugar in his tank.

Motorsport overload this weekend. F1, MotoGP, and Touring Cars. Have only watched the MotoGP FP1 so far. Controversy already in Moto 3 as Aron Canet who is one of the favourites did this clearly on purpose 

 

 

And received no penalty from the stewards. If you can get away with this bullshit it will end up like the game Road Rash.

Wow! That looks crazily stupid. I'm not all that clued up on Moto Gp. The guy at fault is the one who cut across the guy in the green race suit?

You can add WRC to the list of motoring events this weekend. 

The WRC and Moto GP review shows are on BT Sport 1 tonight. 2200 for the Moto GP show and 2215 for the WRC show.

Canet (In the blue) had been mad with Yurchenko (in the green) earlier in the lap because Canet felt Yurchenko wasn't going quick enough and that he ruined his lap. Canet then catches him up and does that. The commentators actually called it. He didn't mean to crash himself, just to knock Yurchenko off. Its just madness.

He tried to Schumacher him. Actually, what Can't did is crazy. How can he get away with that?

The GT Sprint Cup series is on BT Sport this afternoon.

In addition to the BTCC on ITV 4 we also have the WTCC on Eurosport.

Call the police because Jack Miller was robbed. MotoGP ignoring its own start procedure rules cost Miller that race. As for Marquez,  @Harry Wiseau Is right. Could have been black flagged at least twice. Rossi's team telling him to fuck off when he tried to go and apologise made Neil Warnock look like a saint the other night. The look in Lin Jarvis's eye as he came into the garage would have killed an elephant. That really was Moto2 Marquez today.

Indy Car had the Phoenix GP yesterday. Very surprised to see empty grandstands. Makes you wonder how they're able to run the events. They're showing the race on BT Sport/ESPN HD.

Scary moment during WRC this past weekend. An incorrectly called pace note. Caused the Citroen driven bye Kris Meeke to fly off the road. He and his co-driver were lucky that the car flew flat and landed on its wheels. It could have been a lot worse. Item 2 in the link below.

So the F1 at the weekend was pretty exciting. Danny Ric was tremendous and Verstappen was an idiot. The way the whole race panned out with the Safety Car should have ensured a Red Bull 1-2. Because Max gets over committed to moves that are not on he costs them points. Danny Ric is driving himself into the Mercedes for next year. Unless Bottas can really start to pull his finger out he is in trouble. 

 

This weekend is MotoGP at COTA which is a great track. Crutchlow as the first Brit since Barry Sheene to lead the 500/MotoGP championship is incredible, but even more incredible is the fact that 53 year old, 1993 500cc World Champion Kevin Schwantz is riding as a wild card in Moto2. It's roughly the equivalent of when the Brazilian footballer Socrates turned out for Garforth Town when he was 50. Except instead of Garforth he played for Aston Villa. That's what Schwantz is doing this weekend.

Sorry to be that guy but sadly he's not, it was an MCN April fools gag. Shame, it would have been great to see

I understand what you’re saying about Max but the Red Bull higher ups know that he is the future. Danny Ric is great - one of the best overtakers in the sport, but the reality is there is not one team on the grid who would pick him over Max. Max made some big mistakes on Sunday, but don’t forget Danny Ric nearly fucked it when overtaking Bottas. Danny knows deep down he’s the number two driver which is why he won’t resign with Red Bull - he will probably replace Kimi at Ferrari.

 

EDIT - if you want to see something special try and track down a documentary called The Unrideables - lots of amazing footage of Schwantz and other early 90s riders

Redbulls pit work was pretty epic. Double pitstops twice in one race was quite an impressive sight.

The NASCAR race at the weekend had to be postponed until Monday due to rain. It turned out to be a fun race at the Bristol Oval with lots of paint being swapped on the tight bowl. The short nature of the track allowed for close racing and plenty of action.

There was also WRX and Indycar this past weekend.
