A world champion of character Britain’s miserable lack of success in MotoGP has been well documented in these pages, our success in the second-division World Superbike series less so. We seem to be just as incapable of losing in World Superbike as we are of winning in MotoGP. Over the past 26 years 13 Britons have won 138 World Superbike races – more than any other nation – and four of them have...

Matters of moment

We’ve been gratified by the overwhelmingly positive response to our Time for a Formula 1 Revolution cover story, run in the April issue. We published our framework for change on the conviction that the majority of Motor Sport’s readers have become disenchanted with the artifice of modern Grand Prix racing, and judging by the feedback our instincts were on the mark. The response from the...

Angles of attack The new MotoGP season kicks off under Qatar’s entirely fatuous floodlights on March 23 and some people are already inscribing Marc Márquez’s name on the 2014 World Championship trophy. It’s easy to see why: if the youngster could beat everyone as a rookie, what will he do with a full season’s premier-class experience behind him? There is probably only one man capable of stopping...

Gordon Murray on F1 changes and what he’d do if he was in charge. “I don’t really like the direction F1 is taking at the moment; I think it’s quite false in some areas. I can understand completely the desire to create overtaking, but there were much more simple ways that had a technical background and not an artificial one. I do see the reasoning, though. “In terms of the current direction and...

Marc Márquez rewrote the rules of MotoGP technique last season and, in so doing, became the youngest premier-class champ in the sport’s history. What drives Spain’s latest bike-racing phenomenon?Writer Mat Oxley You are at the circus to witness the world’s greatest high-wire artists do their thing. You can barely see the wire, one hundred feet above you, and there’s no safety net. The lights go...

Rossi: The greatest ever? There were groans of despair all along the pitlane when Valentino Rossi recently announced that he may stay in MotoGP for another four or five seasons. But if the MotoGP king’s young rivals were downcast at the news, there were squeals of delight from the offices of series rights-holder Dorna. Rarely has one man carried a sport like Rossi carries MotoGP. Such is the...

– Why Fernando Alonso is simply the best – How Alain Prost stoked the wrath of Ron Dennis – Mosport Park one day, Brands Hatch the next – The Rothmans 50,000: good idea, poor execution These days it always surprises me to hear Formula 1 drivers enthusing about the Hungaroring. It is very ‘technical’, they say, and satisfying to get into a low there. By contrast, in 1986, the year of the first...

A nod to the Futurists If you’ve been lucky enough to receive an invitation to dine at Fiat Yamaha’s MotoGP hospitality unit this season (I’m still awaiting mine), you can’t have failed to notice the funky table mats (right). The mats feature the team’s riders Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo, and celebrate the centenary of the Futurist Movement, 1909 to 2009. Futurism was a hugely influential...

Rossi's last chance The MotoGP world championship has lacked its most important component over the past two seasons: Valentino Rossi running at the sharp end. No one knows exactly how many MotoGP fans support the Italian, but let's just say his followers on Twitter almost outnumber the rest of the grid combined. Now, after two agonising seasons at Ducati, Rossi will line up for the season-opening...
