MotoGP » Stoner start-to-finish on opening night in Qatar


Great to soo these guys back on Tv. Yes providing Casey stays on the bike he will easily win this race, I would think that Pedrosa should be running in second. Then it's alot more difficult to call it, I think Rossi, Spies, Lorenzo, simoncheli all have the pace to fight for the 3rd spot on the podium, I would have to say that the most likely is spies. I beleive Rossi will be fighting for regular podiums within 4 races, after half way I think wins will be on the cards for him too. Good luck to them all.

MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP - Thursday practice times


We are now just finaly starting to get into the real world, yes testing is important & is abit of an indicator of how things will go. If you look at the times today I would not count out Rossi for a podium finish, there is no way anyone is going to beat Casey, he's on another planet. But just wait untill Rossi's shoulder is done healing & he's 100% with it, he's not far off now. I hope we see some good racing, Lorenzo not a chance I'm afraid unless he can pull something out of the bag somehow. Also as another poster commented, Rossi & Stoner did'nt use a sof tyre tonight so I suspect there is more to come from those two.

Hmm, I can not see Rossi finishing in the top 6 I'm afraid, there is total honda domination here. And as 1 poster put it Rossi is only around 0.300 from Lorenzo which I think is a good marker. As for comparing Rossi to Stoner on the Ducati, well they have completely differant riding styles, Stoner is a damn quick rider & is no where near as smooth as Rossi, & whilst Rossi is smoother he has to learn this bike. As some have mentioned on this forum, some of his fans may desert him, well his true fans won't, even if he finishes off the podium every race this year it wont bother me. Give him a fair chance and it will come good. I expected Lorenzo to be abit higher up than he is but it does go to show how good the Honda package is this year. Dani finaly could win a WC , let's face it those honda riders are sure gonna take points from each other, spies looking good too.

I think that we can see from the test's that at least in the early stages of the season we are looking at Honda doing very well, I think that Lorenzo & spies will mix it up abit but the Yamaha no longer has the title of the best bike. You only have to look at how all the Honda riders are performing & you can see that this bike must be good so credit due where it's due. Can the Yamaha's & Ducati catch up? Don't lose patience with Rossi, he will get the bike working how he wants it to but it will take time. Only 1 week left now before first race, I can't wait.

Yes it's looking like Honda has a good package, we will know more as time goes by. As for Rossi well it appears that he is constantly around the second to 1.5 sec from the top at the moment. From his comments about the bike & how he has to ride it I don't think that he will change anything yet to drasticaly change it. We may see some good improvements once we get going in the season. It may seem like it's a drastic amount of time to catch up to Casey & co but we all know what Rossi is capable of.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi opens up over key MotoGP rivals


Doctor Chocolate, I'm a Rossi fan, but I don't dislike many of the other riders, probrably just Lorenzo. However it seems to me that many fans that hate Valentino are obviously very jealous people, at least most of us rossi fans can bring ourselves to admitt that Stoner, lorenzo, & others are damn good riders. I don't think Rossi is a poor loser either, sure he does not like being beaten & he does like winning. For certain Rossi is going to be lucky if he get's a win in the first 3-4 races but the time will come when Rossi get's it all together & when he does there will be fire works.

MotoGP » Rossi: 2002 was biggest change


Iggyd, what aload of trash you talk. nebar1, now that is more like it, there is some on here who appreciates Rossi for what he is & has done. Before anyone says owt, even though I'm a Rossi fan & will not be deserting him, I do appreciate other riders. There is no denying that Casey looks unsoppable on the Honda, the others on the Honda look good 2. Lorenzo, well I'm sorry but I do not particulary like him, he's proven to be fast but if you want my honest opinion he's going to find it hard to defend his title, infact I think he may get a beating from Spies never mind other riders. I'm not convinced he is that good, it's easy to ride the best bike on the grid to the title, he's not got that luxury this year! Many of the Rossi haters, get your kick's in whilst you can, you won't be doing it for long as Rossi will be fighting for wins this year, many of you have been surprised by him in recent years, many of you may well be surprised again, I wont & fully expect grea
