Formula 1 or Moto GP

If you guys had the opportunity to test the pinnacle of motorsports technology for one day which would it be? Drive a Formula 1 car or ride a Moto GP bike around the track? Personally i cant push either one to its potential but i think i would be more comfortable in the car.

I'd go with the GP bike. There are too many switches on an F1 steering wheel to think about and besides you would need to travel a minimum amount of speed in the car for the aerodynamics to be effective.

Switches? We dont need no stinking switches! Just the gas pedal and the shift paddles!

The bike for sure. To drive the car anywhere near fast, you need like 3 months physical training because of the huge lateral forces involved in cornering. I'd just hop on the bike, pin the gas and ride like a pro ( Ha ha, ya right. In my dreams.).

LOL...i was thinking about posting almost the same poll today after watching F1 qualifing at Monaco this morning. I would without a moment of hesitation drive a F1 car over a motogp bike...not even in the same league of bad awesomeness in my opinion. Those cars are amazing!!

no idea if this will affect the pole but looks like f1 is faster than motogp. It's in spanish but you will get the point when the show the speeds and times.

Schumacher. I am assuming you mean Michael, seeing as how Ralph is pretty much the worst driver on the grid.

I say MotoGP because 2 wheels is my passion.

Oh and F1 is faster than MotoGP. Its all about the cars ability to get the power to the ground, grip the road and create downforce. Those cars have about 20 times the contact patch on the tires as a motorcycle, they don't wheelie and they make enough downforce that you can drive them upside down. Cornering is where F1 is significantly faster thanks to the downforce and contact patch.

I think my bike is more closely related to a Moto GP bike in comparison to the similarity of any car I'll ever get to drive and a F1 car.

Formula One would def be more respected and well known but I think I would have more fun on a GP bike.

Its gonna come down to grid girls.....Although you are going to get paid more in F1. Although the races will be more fun in MotoGP. Its a draw....actually F that Formula one teams hang onto their drives for 1 maybe two seasons. GP bike fo sho.

Even Schumacher, the fast one not Rolph, said GP was insane and he really respects the riders for their skills. MS was the man in F1, my friend.

IS the man... but fret not, Luis Hamilton is going to match Shumy's records, if not break them outright. for a rook, he sure does know how to drive a track he's never been to before...

The word is Luis has skills but maybe compare him to Prost or Senna (stretch) before you talk about besting the Shume. Hey, at least it's not net-car. F1 is skill, brother.
