I am not sure how can this be a problem with the bike when your own team mate goes almost 800ms quicker. Need to find another excuse or admit to be shattered with the pace. Only man in the world who could give a apple to apple comparison and let all of us know whether Casey or MArquez is fast. To me Later is much faster than anybody motogp has ever seen..he is a phenomenan.

.its not the bike or him..but he's cursed here..Simoncelli cursed!!cz till the end of Simo's life he still can't forget LeMans incident..he can't forgive him..and maybe the curse is more..he cursed to be a biride's maid forever..

“We don't know if the problem is with the tyres, with the bike or with the track surface".

No, no, it's your head.

Nothing ever prepared Dani for Marc Marquez. The Spanish press is not helping him at all, either. So far they have been kind to Jorge, but then again Jorge is a much classier act than little Dani.

If he doesn't win one soon, and also if he fades into the distance again in this race, he's as good as finished.

Lol i thought at last after rossi's good quali kids wont come to crash today but i was wrong... Look at the craps abve.. You guys probably nevr rode anything abv 30mph but talking s**t here.. Dani knws what to do for the race... He knws how important it is to win.. He knws how dangerous can his teammate be... Give him a break..

"All seeing eye"- now you're going all David Icke on us pcxmac!

I kind of agree with you in some ways, but I don't think lizards are selecting Dani's tires..

You could see Dani struggling. He wasn't picking the bike up early to get the power down out of the corners. I saw a couple of unsettling moments when the bike slid more than he expected. Unless you are confident with the grip level you can't push as hard as you would like and that was apparent in the way he was riding.

Never said shape shifting machinations of David Icke's mind are controlling Dani's tire selection. Electronics, and tires are something a rider cannot control, Dani couldnt even bag a podium at Qatar because of these issues even though he might have almost been able to keep up with Lorenzo in 2012. Something stinks, just like it stunk after Dani kept winning race after race when Casey checked out, its not even a kinda if maybe or what ever, its full tilt in your face bang bammm look.

Ask Dani why his front tire went off so quickly in Barcelona? Ask Marquez why he was over 1/2 a second faster than his teammate but waited till the last lap to do anything about it,

MANIPULATION IS IN AFFECT, Marquez wasn't trying to win like he was earlier in the season because people would not have believed a rookie could have won so quickly. Boiling frogs takes time :) and so do good con jobs.

I could see this coming before the season ever started because I know through induction that Bridgestone bought Jorge his second title and that the commentators were completely steering the plot towards Marc vs Lorenzo. Its scripted, its stupid, its drama for the masses, and only maybe lastly is it racing.

btw, Go Dani !!!

pcxmac, I saw this coming too....


...because Dani isn't that great. He's been catered to his entire career. He's been given everything, and he's been lackluster. How has a guy with his talent not won a WC, yet?

His excuse was last year "Oh, I didn't try to win until it was too late to catch Jorge" "I didn't start off fast enough".

Really? Dani, you ride a motorcycle for a living. And your excuse is that you decided to sandbag the first half of the year?? What, you didn't want the championship until after summer break? It's pathetic.


Issues, problems, excuses - or whatever you want to call it (script) - it's always something with Dani.
