MotoGP » Moto2: Alex Marquez to Marc VDS


Makes sense. I've often thought that what Honda needs in MotoGP is a professional 'feeder' satellite team that can provide a backup and natural route into the factory team. Yamaha has it with Tech 3. Ducati has it with Pramac. But Honda's effort is split across too many operations (Gresini, LCR, Aspar). A good, well funded operation like VDS would seem to fit the bill.

MotoGP » Delighted Dovizioso breaks 10sec barrier


mrfill: @TrueFan Ducati - their biggest problem at the moment is having a rider who doesn't seem interested in trying.
Hardly. Their biggest problem remains understeer. We all know Cal isn't doing much, but Dovi & Iannone are doing well, getting better race by race, and closing the gap to the front. Yonny Hernandez is doing remarkably well in my view. On the 2013 satellite bike he is consistently challenging the top 10 and regularly beating CC. I really hope Pramac extend his contract for next year and give him a new bike, not a year old cast-off. Overall Ducati seem to be on the up - here's hoping that the 2015 bike will be the step up they need to be genuinely competitive again.

MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps


Joeski: cont'd..... GiGI seems to be speeding things up with new engines and all but new bike still will not be ready til next year at sepang...Yamaha and Honda already tested next year model..... However...I am genuinely excited to see what solutions GiGi brings for next year!!!
Apples & pears. The Honda & Yamaha are just evolutions of the current machine. The Ducati will be a completely new bike. It matters not that it will debut in Sepang. The critical thing is has GiGi got it right? As he said he only wants to do the job once, properly.

MotoGP » Delighted Dovizioso breaks 10sec barrier


Evolution: yes Look ducati has some problems but there problem is not as worst to take extraa benefits. these benfits should be given to the bikes who don't have top speed at all like the bikes of scott, hayden etc. Ducati is more powerful than yamaha in acceleration and in corners also they are not as good to yamaha or honda but they are far better than open bikes. Extra fuel and extraa softer compound tyre really makes the difference.
Actually they don't need the extra fuel and the softer tyres are often a disadvantage in the race. Yes softs are good for qualifying but the Ducati fades when the tyres wear so under race conditions they would benefit from having the harder options available to the factory Honda & Yamaha.

SasquatchBob:
biaggi: Jack Miller has signed a 3 year contract with honda.in 2017 he will be in the factory team.
Where did you get this info?
I read it on twitter. Mathey Birt and David Emmet wrote this on their profiles. it depends on the results.But i believe that Jack will get used to the big bikes fast and wil start beating hiss teammate in the second half of the season.
No chance. Moto3 straight to MotoGP - this is a recipe for chucking it at the scenery big-time. He will be lucky if he manages to walk away without being seriously hurt.

MotoGP » Silverstone ‘extremely disappointed’ to lose 2015 MotoGP


Silverstone are basically saying that COW don't have a clue about the financial realities of running an event like this. They are probably right. But what they don't understand is that they are dealing with Wales and the Taffia. The money will come from the Welsh Government via some route which means ultimately the good ol' tax-payer picking up the tab. Silverstone wouldn't ever get such support but the rules are totally different in Wales.
