MotoGP » Eugene Laverty confirms MotoGP move


I guess there are two realistic options bearing in mind Miller is likely to go to LCR on a customer Honda. 1. Customer Honda with Aspar as Hayden's team-mate. This would be a bit of a kick in the teeth for Camier though. 2. Gresini / Aprilia as Bautista's team-mate. Eugene still has very good relations with Aprilia although Melandri is also talked about for this ride. Talk in the paddock seems to be favoring option 1. We will see.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: We're getting closer all the time


kma55: I don't think we can read too much into today's result. Dovizioso finished 5.5s off the lead. In 2012 Rossi was only 4.4s behind.
Eh??? Your point being? A year ago, Ducati was averaging being 30 seconds plus behind the winner. Quarter way into the season this had dropped to 15 seconds behind the winner. Last race out it was 10 seconds. Now it is 5 seconds. If that doesn't show very tangible progress, then I don't know what does. Actually therefore we can read quite a lot into today's result.

MotoGP » Phil Read presents Yamaha with first title certificate


Well bully for you Pakundo, you've just read Phil Read's autobiography and so are now an expert. And of course Phil Read's autobiography is totally factually accurate? He wouldn't want to put any sort of spin on events to justify what at times was a controversial career? I suggest you do a bit more reading around the subject. Like for example why Read was described as the 'Team-mate from Hell' when he was with Agostini at MV. Or around the history of the TT and why he is far from popular with the fans there, even though he loves to gravitate around the Classic TT events now. Also read up about Bill Ivy who apart from being very talented was a genuinely nice guy who was universally liked & respected and whom I had the privilege to meet once. Keep reading son.

MotoGP » Phil Read presents Yamaha with first title certificate


For those too young to understand the first comment in this thread it relates to 1968. Honda had pulled out of racing leaving Yamaha dominant. Phil Read & Bill Ivy were both factory Yamaha riders (& friends at that point) and Yamaha 'decided' that Read should win the 125cc class and Ivy the 250. Whilst Bill Ivy followed team orders and allowed Read to win in 125cc races, Read ignored the orders and took the 250cc title too, much to Ivy's anger. Yamaha was also furious and Read never again rode for the factory team nor got any support from them from that point. It all means that this 'event' smacks of hypocrisy in my view. As for the second comment from Vilas46, well it just shows he is posting on matters about which he has no understanding whatsoever.
