MotoGP » Pedrosa: Simoncelli's head has nothing but hair


"In Estoril he was laughing about maybe someone will arrest him. Maybe he needs that because I tell you, his head has nothing but hair" – Dani Pedrosa.

Moto GP needs riders like Simoncelli, The racing keeps getting less and less, But you will always get excitment from Simoncelli.

We need more blokes in this sport and less girls

Little man starts talking too much. Little man expected Simoncelli to let him go past him and kneel afterwards before him. Little man should look back to the video carefully, he will see that the mistake was his mostly. Little man not used in close racing, too fragile you see. Little man is in one of the best teams, unable to achieve sth special all these years and gets a lot of pressure making him lose his little mind.

Its only a lie by Pedrosa if it can't be proven:

* Approx 30% crash rate in 10 years from 140 races, possibly the highest ever, though I'd need to confirm that. So approx 1 in 3 races is a dnf. He's well in front of that figure this year so far.

* He's only young and inexperienced, well no he isn't, he's the same age as Ped, Stoner, Lorenzo & Spies and has been in the circus for 10 years. He is not in his rookie year and rides the best factory bike out there...yet still crashes.

* If he doesn't crash or crash someone out he will win for sure, well no, in the lone 2 races that he has managed to not crash he came in 5th and 6th. Race speed and concentration are a whole new ball game to a hot lap.

* He doesn't mean to hurt people, well no, he knows quite well what he is doing, the chop across the bow on Pedrosa was one of his let's say manouvres in the 250's as was his purposely coming in to hot up the inside and running riders off the track.

Pedrosa actually has a low crash rate, ar

@steve,

"We need more blokes in this sport and less girls"

I'd prefer they maintained the status quo with the paddock girls.

...rossi supporter by any chance?

I blame the 800cc bikes for Simo's crashes in the early part of the race, if a rider doesn't get a fast start it is pretty much game over... from there its just follow the leader, next year on 1000cc bikes you will see riders using much different lines and making up lost ground quickly just from sheer horsepower, just hope not too much electronics are involved and tyres cope with the extra power. Even back in the 500 days riders would shorten up the corners by sliding/drifting the bike and make up ground very quickly so much better to watch than today, often you would see 4 riders fighting for the win when was the last time we saw that in motogp ???

I'd love to know what some older riders really think about motogp in the last 2 years. Kenny,Doohan, Foggy etc and also the likes of Mcpint, Amor, Martin, Hutchy etc. would be an interesting chat.
Its not nice to see any of them injured but if you can't stand the heat then get out of the kitchen.

Before the kids have a fit I'm fully aware that Foggy was not a gp rider, good hard racer's is the point I'm trying to make.

I think Dani feels Sic is a threat -Bigtime. Sic has been at least as fast most of the time and faster at others. If you don't have it, you don't have it. But Sic actually has it. Now he just needs the wisdom that he lacks as a sophmore. That's much easier than trying to teach someone how to go fast in the first place. Before long, we'll be seeing Marco own stock on the podium steps...and Dani and *****-HE will have to find something else to gripe about.

I only read the first few comments and they were all telling Dani to get over it because it happens. Terrrible comments by dumb commentators. Simoncelli is dangerous and it has resulted in a broken collarbone for Dani. Just from hearing Simo speak I don't think he's particularly bright and has trouble thinking quickly and even worse he doesn't care that he is a danger to other riders. I hope someone puts him into a wall that may be the only way he learns this lesson.
