[quote user="bee46"]For sure,  I'm very support Vale  get the world tittle again ( when he join Ducati ) . I don't think he will join F1 of Ferrari in future. Because he would like to join the Rally than F1. [;)][/quote]

Hmmm did "The Doctor" confirmed his transfer to Ducati? if that so then Lets go trash Jorge! haha. Btw i think it's not a good idea for him to shift to WRC too because no one can beat Sebastian Loeb The King of Rally [:p] [:D] numero UNO!! and Oh bout Kimi in WRC though he is still a debutant he just managed to earn 8 points which is really unusual for me to see Kimi behind the scoring sheet..

 

[quote user="CROUCHING TIGER"]And Kimi would come back to F1 LOL[/quote]

and Mark will be kicked out? LOL

You said are right. Maybe he feel Rally is more challenging than F1. Because he always told with the reporter when he finish Motogp career, he will join the Rally.  But who can knowing in the future, maybe he will work in his garden, married or more, who knows? haha

LOL! Vale is a great driver so i think he still can manage to beat Loeb (ha). I admire him every time he race! he always manage to be on top or in podium even if he started at the back of the grid. But if ever he will be on Ducati next season he will surely trash Jorge, Dani or even poor Stoner [:p]. We all know Ducati is much faster than Yamaha especially in straight lane. During Vale-Stoner competition from previous two seasons Stoner managed to surpass Vale coz of its speed but Vale was much quicker in turns that's why victory is still from the driver that's why Vale + Ducati will surely produce a BOOM to MotoGP [:)]

Alonso's F1 title bid on the line at Italian GP













© AP, 10 September 2010


















 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A day after FIA kept alive Ferrari's Formula 1 championship bid, Fernando Alonso knows his debut for the team at the Italian Grand Prix could prove just as decisive.


Alonso trails overall F1 leader Lewis Hamilton
by 41 points with six races to go after the sport's governing body let
Ferrari off without any points penalty on Wednesday for breaking the
team orders rule.


Alonso says he'll be aggressive in Sunday's 53-lap race. That race
and the upcoming Singapore GP likely will decide Ferrari's season.


Quote:

"Obviously there are less races to the end of the championship, (so)
more problems you have if you have a bad weekend," Alonso said Thursday.
"Monza
is an important weekend and Singapore as well, and a DNF in the race
will be our last chance and a goodbye to the championship."

Monza and Singapore GP are really special [A]

 


The FIA upheld the $100,000 fine after Ferrari driver Felipe Massa let Alonso overtake him to win the race. The council could have stripped Alonso of the victory or docked the team points.


Quote:
"You have to respect it and stay calm," Alonso said. "That's the past for us, we just have to focus on Monza."

[Y] 


Alonso commended the decision to clarify the rule on team orders.


Despite a barrage of questions about the issue, Alonso refused to
delve into the subject and instead preferred to focus on the Italian GP,
which begins with Friday's double-practice session.


"We should be competitive here," said Alonso, who crashed out in the
last race, a wet Belgian GP. "We (have made) some changes, some analysis
of what happened in Spa and I think we understood what happened. I
think we have a better package."


Quote:
Having described his first year at Ferrari as the best of his life,
Alonso denied it would be a "disaster" if he didn't win the title.

[H] 


"For sure, (it would be) a disappointment for yourself and the team,"
the two-time world champion said. "But the word 'disaster' is a little
too extreme. It's a very competitive sport."


Hamilton has 182 points to lead second-place Mark Webber of Red Bull by three points. Sebastian Vettel, Jenson Button and Alonso follow and are separated by 10 points.


"There's still six races to go, but it's up to the rest -- Fernando,
Jenson and myself -- to shrink the gap," said Vettel, who has 151
points. "We've already seen different leaders at different stages, so
anything can happen. There's no reason to panic."


Button believes McLaren
will carry over its Belgian GP form to another low downforce circuit.
Hamilton won in Belgium and Button was running second before Vettel
crashed into him to end his race.


"I'm positive for the rest of the season. We're not fearing anything at the moment," said Button, who finished second to Brawn GP teammate Rubens Barrichello
at Monza last year. "All you need is one race for the leaders to have a
bad race. We know there are still a lot of possibilities."


While the contenders battle it out, Michael Schumacher
returns to Monza for the first time since coming out of retirement for
Mercedes. The seven-time champion won five of his titles with Ferrari.
He is a five-time winner here, including in 2006, when he announced his retirement.


Quote:
"It was a tough moment, but the right moment,"  said Schumacher, who
languishes in 10th place, 138 points behind Hamilton. "There was no
regrets then and there are no regrets now to be back again."



 

no regrets for messing up your great driving skills after you came back[:|]

MotoGP rider dies in San Marino crash

September 5, 2010 -- Updated 1519 GMT (2319 HKT)
Shoya Tomizawa is strecthered from the track following his tragic accident in San Marino on Sunday.
Shoya Tomizawa is strecthered from the track following his tragic accident in San Marino on Sunday.
 

(CNN) -- MotoGP is in mourning following the tragic death of
Japan's teenage rider Shoya Tomizawa after an accident in the San Marino
Moto2 Grand Prix on Sunday.

Tomizawa came off his Suter bike on a
bend and was struck by the following bikes of Italian Alex de Angelis
and Briton Scott Redding -- an impact which saw the 19-year-old thrown
down the circuit and into the gravel.

Race organizers confirmed that Tomizawa had died in hospital from serious injuries to his skull, chest and abdomen.

A statement read: "Shoya Tomizawa suffered a serious crash and subsequent cranial, thoracic and abdominal trauma.

"He
was taken to hospital in Riccione for immediate treatment but succumbed
to his injuries. All the MotoGP family wants to express its deepest
condolences to his family and friends."

Tomizawa's death was the
first in the sport since 24-year-old compatriot Daijiro Kato died in
April 2003 at the Japanese MotoGP in Suzuka.

Moto2 is the class below MotoGP and the main race followed before news of Tomizawa's death had been confirmed.

Honda
rider Dani Pedrosa of Spain claimed victory, his fourth of the season
and second in a row, after starting from pole position.

Compatriot and world championship leader Jorge Lorenzo finished second and world champion Valentino Rossi was third.

However, there was an understandably subdued podium ceremony when confirmation of Tomizawa's death became known.

"It
feels so strange, there is a big hole inside me. I was so happy and
then I was told the news and this big hole opened up inside me," the
24-year-old Pedrosa told BBC TV.

Rossi, winner
of the race for the past two seasons, was visibly moved to tears,
saying: "When it happens like this nothing else really matters."

 

thanks giane for giving me a clue to look for the news you've said [:p]
 
btw this was really disastrous[:'(][:'(] i can't imagine it would end to death [:|]

Bad luck, unfortunately. He was hit by the other behind him, otherwise he would have been allright. These guys(just as in F1)know the risks. A few seconds after the start it can all be over.[W]


@Alonso...yep, this must be a win or it's over. He can do it....MONZA FORZA[:P]

Alonso marks Ferrari Italian GP debut with pole

Quote:

Fernando Alonso marked his Italian Grand Prix debut for Ferrari on Saturday by taking pole position for the race.

Forza Ferrari!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this will be a great chance Nano!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The two-time world champion from Spain set the pace with a lap of 1
minute, 21.962 seconds for his 19th career pole. It was the Italian
team's first qualifying win since the 2008 Brazilian GP -- a span of 30 races.


"It was a nice surprise," Alonso said. "A much better feeling. This
was a great achievement by the team -- we proved that we were quick."


Defending world champion Jenson Button of McLaren
finished just over one-tenth of a second slower to start on the front
row for the first time in 23 races.
Alonso and Button need strong
showings in Sunday's 53-lap race to stay close in the championship
fight.


 

Quote:

Felipe Massa of Ferrari and Mark Webber of Red Bull fill out the second row, while F1 leader Lewis Hamilton of McLaren starts fifth.

Nice One [H] Felipe will be in the second row so he still has a chance of gaining a podium finish and could also help Nano to secure his position by not allowing other drivers to surpass him. Hope it will work!

 


Sebastian Vettel was sixth for Red Bull, which had taken pole in 12 of the first 13 races this season.


Alonso, who crashed out of the Belgian GP two weeks ago, gave
himself the best shot at moving up the standings with an electrifying
run.


"Tomorrow, we need a podium -- minimum -- to remain in the fight," said Alonso, who won in Monza for McLaren in 2007. "There's not big pressure or stress to win the race but we know we cannot afford another DNF."


Button went with a high downforce setup that ensured he has a good
chance of making up the points gap to Hamilton, who won in Belgium
after his McLaren teammate was knocked out at Spa by Vettel.


"It's very important -- I have the trophy at home and I want it to
stay there," Button said. "It turned around very quickly for us in Spa
(and) I think it can all turn around again very quickly (again)."


Hamilton, the 2008 F1 champion, has 182 points to lead Webber by
three. Vettel is third with 151 points, and faces a difficult task
Sunday after his worst qualifying performance of the season. Button is
next with 147 points, six more than Alonso.


Nico Rosberg of Mercedes was seventh in qualifying ahead of Williams driver Nico Hulkenberg and Robert Kubica of Renault, while 2009 Italian GP winner Rubens Barrichello starts 10th for Williams.


Quote:

Michael Schumacher will drive from 12th in his first race at Monza since winning his fifth Italian GP title four years ago.

and his first appearance since he announced his retirement [:p]

Intelligent race with that pit-strategy!(and some luck with the Hamiltoncrash). Like i said, a win brings Fernando back for the title. Singapore is next, street race means the Bulls & Hamilton will take revenge. Alonso must take podiumplaces and some first ones if possible...still 5 can win![:^)]

Raikkonen could return to F1 with Renault













© Ubaid Parkar (Sportz Interactive), 14 September 2010













© AP Images



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen has been reported to have approached Renault in a bid for a possible return to Formula 1 for the following season.


The Finn, who had earlier indicated that he might not return to F1,
is currently competing in the World Rally Championship (WRC) with the
Citroen team. Rumours had previously linked him to a possible return
with Red Bull.


Nevertheless, Renault’s team principal Eric Boullier has confirmed that the former Ferrari driver has intentions of returning to the sport with the French manufacturer.


"It is true that the summer has passed and we have had more and more
requests - and the guy you mentioned (Raikkonen) is on the radar now,"
Boullier revealed to Autosport. "He is on the radar because he
contacted us."


Robert Kubica
has been confirmed with the Enstone-based outfit until the end of 2012
however, the second seat for the following year is yet to be announced.
Vitaly Petrov
was chosen to partner Kubica for 2010 but his contract has not been
renewed despite the rookie performing decently this year. However, he
still stands as potential candidate.


"He is not very far away to be honest,” he said of the Russian. "It
is still very complicated for him to have a complete weekend and be
faultless, and that is where he needs to work and focus on, and develop
clearly his commitment and dedication."


The team now faces an option between the two aspirants for the following year.


"It would be a different strategy for the team," he explained. "And
that is not a question of personality or having a world championship
title - it will cost me more if he is world champion than if he is not.
It is not a question of this - it is a different strategy.


"You work differently if you have a rookie - and in supporting him -
than if you have two experienced drivers. So it is different,” he
continued. "We need to think about it. But the priority is Vitaly, and
to see how he will develop. If we are convinced then we will keep him
definitely. This is the first option.


“But there are several other options, and one of them is Kimi,” he pointed out.
