MotoGP » Problem solving ‘only goal’ for Redding


It amazes me time and again that people don't realise the impact the TEAM has on a riders performance. Firstly yes, Scott is underperforming given his skill level, and the equipment level and he is always keen to point this out. Said it before, New team to MOTOGP no electronics experience, no motoGP experience, no bridgestone experience, no carbon brake experience. crew chief with no motoGP experience. anyone that thinks a great rider can just jump on and spank it without a team giving him what he wants is deluded. In his open year (with an experienced team) he beat everyone else on the same bike including ex WC Hayden (in the same team).people need to learn the difference between REASONS and EXCUSES

MotoGP » Birthday boy Lorenzo fastest at Jerez test


Guna4699:
matt liddy: Great to see Jorge back in the form everyone knows he is capable of running. The only rider to beat MM in the last three seasons where MM hasn't fallen off or suffered a bike problem. #99 for the championship.
forget Marc's rookie season, in last one and a half season its not just Lorenzo who out paced Marc,, did you conveniently forget another Yamaha name?? Yes Marc crashed twice in misano and Argentina but not while cruising in front opening gap with solid pace, once trying to stick with leader and other while trying to keep the faster rider behind... Also Marc clearly got out paced by race winner in Qatar Even without his mistake...
Didn't forget at all, I mearly made an accurate point. where MM was when he fell off is irrelevant, as we have seen anything can happen in racing. I beg to differ about Qatar, but we will never know.

MotoGP » ‘Positive’ end to poor weekend for Redding


As mentioned, reading has a brand new INEXPERIENCED team. His engineer while very experienced, is a super bike guy. None of the crew have experience of the bike, tyres or brakes. Cals team have a lot of experience (albeit with Bradle last year) in a class where the difference is measured in fractions of a second or points of a percentage, this cannot be overlooked.

MotoGP » ‘Positive’ end to poor weekend for Redding


As the stats go, yes he is under performing. He KNOWS he should be higher up,as do the team. I am objective. At no point have I said he is doing a great job, because at the moment he isn't. You are failing to be objective as you can't seem to get over the effect the teams inexperience has. Moto2 is nothing like motogp in terms of complexity and set up. (Smiths experienced team took chunks off in the test with the right electrics setting and they know the bike very well) Galbusera still took most of the year to make rossi regularly competitive in a very experienced team. The team is a REASON for poor performance so far, not an EXCUSE. They will get there.

MotoGP » ‘Positive’ end to poor weekend for Redding


Realist:
Bryan277: Unfair. Galbusera joined a hugely experienced 9 times World Championship winning team with Rossi at the helm. WSK Pike joined Moto2 runner-up Redding. Where's the comparison?
Keep things in PERSPECTIVE, and manage this discussion on Scott's Open bike results versus his factory bike results. In theory (and all things being equal in Scott's team....with a year of premier class experience), the better machinery should be yielding better results. That's the bottom line. Bradl ran up front. Bautista had his moments in the sun. Crutchlow is up front. Simo RIP ran with the lead pack. Redding ISN'T. He's back there piddling around with Open bikes on a factory supported Honda.
Once again (yawn) all those mentioned had experienced teams. You just. Don't. Get. It... The problem is all things are not equal (the team...) I said earlier about Scott's open bike performance. With equal standing (no team had an

matt liddy: His engineer while very experienced, is a super bike guy.
So is Silvano Galbusera (for the most part). He spent the most recent years of his career in WSBK/WSS and he had no experience with the current GP tires or brakes either. Massimo Meregalli was even concerned when he said, "For sure he [Silvano] will need some time to adjust to MotoGP", but it has been demonstrated that he is obviously a talented Crew Chief, and his lack of experience isn't hindering his ability to assess and set up Rossi's bike. Don't make excuses for Redding AS A RIDER.
The crew chief is inexperienced, but the rider, (9world titles) team (been around a little while) and factory are not. What a very poor comparison. Must try harder With your trolling please.

matt liddy:
Comprehend what you're reading and try to be objective. Redding's team has been around awhile (albeit in M2), so they are NOT new to GP's in general, and they have access to factory data as well. It's not a poor comparison at all. I kept it simple. It's not trolling. Next to his peers Redding is under-performing. You can try to make excuses for it, but it is what it is. Even he knows that he is under-performing and has said it explicitly.....and so has his team. When SR was on the 213-RS Open bike, everybody exclaimed that he'd "be up front" if he had the factory bike, etc. etc., and used the bike as justification for his performance. He has the factory bike now (and a full year in GP), and he's still performing about the same. The excuses while on a good bike only last for so long before you have to start looking at the rider. That goes for anybody.
As the stats go, yes. He is under performing. He fee

MotoGP » Marquez: It's a good start


"How quickly you forget .....it was Dani who stopped the Marquez freight train of wins. If it was Rossi we would never hear the end of it." Marquez' winning streak wasnt stopped by Dani. Dani's win came as Marquez slumped with issues to a 4th place finish. last year no one went toe to toe with Marquez and won. he was only ever beaten by Marquez.
