Valentino Rossi is still disappointed that he failed to win a tenth world title in 2015. He is sure he deserves it. Jorge Lorenzo won his last, third title at the last race. In addition to the direct fight for the title between the two Yamaha racers, the season was marked by numerous incidents between Rossi and Marquez. Their relationship reached its lowest point at the race in Malaysia. When, after the well-known incident with Marquez, Valentino Rossi had to start the last race in Valencia from the very beginning of the starting row. The Italian made it all the way to fourth place on Sunday, which, with Lorenzo's victory, was not enough for the tenth world championship title. Many were convinced that Marquez deliberately challenged Valentino Rossi with daring maneuvers in the last part of the season.
Those of us who found a (foreign) program last Saturday, where we could watch the broadcast of qualifications for the first race of this year's Formula One season, which will be the first in more than 30 years that none of our television stations will broadcast in Slovenia, we were so shocked, surprised and appalled at how miserably the last part of the qualifiers failed in particular that we didn’t even notice the time Lewis Hamilton, the fastest racer on Saturday, drove around the track in Albert Park. The Briton drove the lap 2.5 seconds faster than last year, which only testifies to how diligent they were at Mercedes over the winter. Of course, the offer of the mixes that Pirelli brought to Melbourne this year is also partly to blame for the better round. Last year the racers had a soft and medium hard mix at their disposal, and this year they had on
Yamaha boss Lin Jarvis has admitted that the Japanese team is tempted to work with Maverick Vinales and Alex Rins. There will be a lot going on in the racers ’market this season, as at the end of the season, most racers on the best teams have their contracts expiring, including Yamaha racers Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo. Tensions between the teammates reached a boiling point last year, leading to speculation about how long they will sit on the same engines. Jarvis admitted that Yamaha has already given serious consideration to possible replacements, with Suzuki racer and newcomer to last season, Maverick Vinales, at the top of their wish list. "Maverick already has experience with MotoGP. I don't know the details of his contract with Suzuki, but I assume that the signing is
Jorge Lorenzo became the world champion of this season with the so-called victory from the start to the finish. The Spaniard, who became the third world champion of the heaviest class of motorcycling, kept both Honda racers behind him in the last laps with last strength, who eventually finished second and third. The eighth-grader of this year's championship, Valentino Rossi, despite a quick breakthrough from the background, finished the race in fourth place, so he ran out of five points for the title.

Nico Rosberg was also the fastest in the last free practice before qualifying for the Mexican GP. The German is chasing second place in the overall standings after his teammate at Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton, already became the world champion of this season a week ago. In the last practice, Hamilton was a good hundredth of a second slower than Rosberg, and the third was Red Bull racer Daniel Ricciardo. The training was marked by a slippery track, on which practically all racers had problems. The technique, however, tempted Ferrari racer Kimi Raikkonen, who parked his car with an engine failure shortly after the start of training. His teammate Sebastian Vettel finished training in fourth place, with a two-tenths of a second difference. Due to the fast track configuration, there were differences as well
After a demanding German rally for the WC, Tim Novak and Uroš Ocvirk are ready for a new challenge: to compete in the DP race with a Peugeot 208 R2 car. On Friday and Saturday, September 11 and 12, it will roar again in the vicinity of Nova Gorica and on the Banjška plateau, as this year's fourth rally for the national championship will take place there. As the rally will also count for the Mitropo Cup and the Alpe Adria competition, Tim Novak and Uroš Ocvirk will also compete on the slippery coastal asphalt. “I am very happy to be able to get behind the wheel of a race car again very soon after the accident in Germany. It’s also the best medicine to forget about the pitch and accumulate a few more much-needed racing miles. Rally Nova Gorica is also considered Mitropo, where I still occupy the sixth place in the overall ranking and the third place among the race cars that are
An amateur video of one of the spectators of the race in Austria revealed that Fernando Alonso was very close to Ferrari Kimi Raikonen on the way out of the second turn with his McLaren, who lost control of the car a moment later. The accident happened in the second turn of the first lap of the race, and Raikkonen said he simply lost control of the car. However, the footage shows that there was most likely a slight collision between Alonso’s front wing and Raikkonen’s rear left tire, which would also explain why the red car rotated to the left. The commissioners did not penalize either racer, but they are confused at Ferrari about what could have caused the accident. Unfortunately, a video from Fernando Alonso's car, which could explain the cause, is not available this time either. https: //

Those of you who particularly like just about all BMW cars (so far) may frown, while those of the other may finally find a model that will also catch your eye and raise your heart rate. 3.0 CSL Hommage is, according to most fans, something that designers should throw in the trash before it goes from a sheet of paper to the three-dimensional world, but the less strict ones see beauty in it. The original 3.0 CSL went down in history as a legend of endurance racing, and is considered the pioneer of the M sports series. Between 1972 and 1975, 1265 cars were built, and this year BMW decided to create a modern version as a tribute (homage). ) to the original. Not much information is available about what is hidden under the hood, but it is speculated that it is a six-cylinder hybrid
