MotoGP » Dovizioso: I’d give this season nine out of ten


grantrd: Dalligna's last motogp bike was the RS3 cube.......enough said about that........
Sorry to rain on your parade but you should get your facts right. GiGi was not involved with the design & launch of the Cube in 2002. At the time he was involved with the 125 & 250 two-stroke projects ... both notable successes, dominating both classes. He started working on the Cube in 2003 with Colin Edwards and Noriyuki Haga & very quickly (& publically) proclaimed that the bike was fundamentally flawed and the engine design all wrong. He was ultimately proved correct. Moving on he headed the RSV4 project which has secured the WSB title three times since 2010. Sounds like a great track record and a highly competent guy to me.

MotoGP » 'Unexpected problems' spoil Suzuki return


A lot of folk on this site had been predicting that the Suzuki would be instantly competitive but this weekend has proved to offer a reality check. The last time Suzuki competed in GP's (2011), their GSV-R was down on horsepower and notably poor on acceleration out of corners. In the meantime, Honda, Yamaha & Ducati have been racing 4 or 6 bikes every season, accumulating a mass of data, enabling them to develop their machines quickly. So why would people expect Suzuki to have suddenly developed something fantastic when they have been away from racing for a number of years? Simply isn't going to happen. Rather, they are starting way behind the competition and it is likely to prove very hard to catch up with the development potential of only a 2-man team. Where Suzuki is now is the level of an unreliable customer Honda.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: Never write me off


Some folk seem to love having a go at Ducati and writing them off. Dovi finished fifth in the championship only behind the two Repsol Honda's and Factory Yamaha's. He beat every satellite factory Honda and satellite factory Yamaha. Truth is that Ducati has made a sequence of small but consistent improvements during the course of the season and overall have improved faster than both Honda and Yamaha. They still have some way to go but they have a brand new machine coming for 2015, not just an evolution of the GP14. GiGi is highly capable and there is every possibility that Ducati will be closer still to the pointy end in 2015. Cal might come to regret his decision.

MotoGP » Marquez hails 'incredible' end to season in Valencia


TomIvoh: Doohan's stats are not a record !!! If we are just talking about ratios then nobody can beat Agostini in 1968: 10 GPs on the calendar, 10 victories !!! 100% !
True, but let's remember that season was when Honda had pulled out. Agostini was riding the works four-cylinder MV Augusta whilst the 2nd & 3rd riders in the championship were riding single-cylinder Matchless bikes. The difference in quality of machinery was massive. It's a bit like Marquez being the only guy on a RC213V whilst the rest are on Moto2 bikes. Under such circumstances I'm sure Marc would have won every race too.

MotoGP » Redding: Questions answered in 2015


Welshie: To be fair I wouldnt call the RCV1000RR a POS. It was a decent bike, but just not enough power.
True. It was developed to be an inexpensive off-the-shelf CRT competitor and it achieved that goal perfectly. Problem is the rules changed (again) and open class became works bikes with standard ECU's. There was no way the customer Honda could compete with that and it was never intended to do so.

F1 » F1: Button revels in P4 amid future uncertainty


It doesn't come down to money - McLaren / Honda have the resources. Rather, Alonso doesn't want Button there. Imagine if Button beat him - pricked ego & toys would really be chucked out of the pram then. Alonso wants the clear #1 status in the team and a weaker team-mate who will defer to him on every occasion. So Magnussen will get the nod & Jensen will get the flick. Sad but true.

MotoGP » PICS: Jack Miller makes MotoGP debut


hoppy: A good rider and an aggressive rider. He will do well in the premier class if he gets the equipment to prove himself. But his attitude in parc ferme yesterday was poor form. Aiming 4 letter abuse at people will not endear him to his peers or the fans in general.Lets hope it was a one off bit of frustration.
Did I hear correctly that he referred to Marc Marquez as a F***ing pr1ck? That certainly won't endear him to Honda least of all. I was going to say the man has no class, but he isn't a man is he, just a petulant kid.

MotoGP » Maverick Vinales: MotoGP power amazing!


biaggi: I have strong feeling that he will beat the Ducati's next year
You’ve got that strong feeling? Probably a urinary tract infection from taking the p1ss too much. Suzuki beat the Ducati? Seriously? Take a good look at the timings. The 2014 Ducati is blowing the 2015 Suzuki into the weeds. What will the 2015 Ducati do? The Suzuki is going to struggle to match the customer Honda next year. Buckle your seatbelt Dorothy coz Mr. Suzuki is about to go bye bye.
