MotoGP » 'Happy' Rossi planning ‘soft’ race


It's probably not a surprise they are having issues with the asymmetric tyre in cold conditions. Even in a straight line, having half the tyre width softer and more grippy than the other half is likely to cause stability issues. Equally though I can't see how the supersoft can be expected to last race distance after last year's experience. For sure some of the abrasiveness of the track will have worn off but it still seems to be unusually harsh compared with other circuits. Hopefully the forecasts are right for warmer weather but you can't count on it. The last time I went to PI I ended up buying a jacket because it was so (surprisingly) cold!

MotoGP » Dovizioso expresses concern for tyre situation


It's really hard for the tyre manufacturers to come up with anything that really works at this track since it was re-surfaced. If they make them ultra-hard to last the distance then the front end grip is compromised and the back is constantly spinning up. Softer, and they will never last the distance. What on earth did PI surface this track with? Sandpaper?

MotoGP » Moto3: Marquez pole as rival Miller struggles


BoZz: Is Miller becoming another Stacey Moaner?.. Fair dinkum what is it with Aussie Riders and their tantrums?... I'm Aussie, and it's embarrasing to watch. Something doesn't go his way and he pouts like a child. Slack Miller.
Yeah, I was thinking the same. Most of the Aussie riders have been legendary hard men - Gardner, Doohan, Corser, Bayliss etc. But this guy Miller .... something else. As for complaining about others looking for a tow, well they would surely focus on the fast men - Marquez, Rins, not Miller. Yet somehow this guy is in MotoGP next year! WTF? Bet he'll be looking for a tow then!
