F1 » Vettel (yes, Vettel) misses Q2 cut


This really confirms alot of peoples views on vettel, he is not the driver we was being told he was, I knew he was know where near as good as he was being made out to be. It was so easy for him last 2 years in a far superior car to anything else. We will see how good he is now, he is nowhere near in Schumachers league, who now he has a car thats capable of competing is back at the front.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi lashes out after Qatar nightmare


I think you will find Honda would take Rossi back any day of the week, I'm certain on that bike he would be more than a match for Casey & Danny, I'm sure that many will disagree but that is up to them. No need to slag me off though just for my views, i'm one of the ones who said Rossi would win on the Ducati, well how wrong I was, no point in getting mad over it though, that's how it is. I don't remember Rossi leaving Yamaha in a huff either so don't be surprised if he goes back to them.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi lashes out after Qatar nightmare


Rossi said he had hoped to stay with Ducati for two more years, but said his current form puts that ambition into question. "I came here at the end of 2010 with the idea of racing for two years and try to win with Ducati. But it's hard. Besides, I'd like to stay two more years," he added. "If we work well we are able to fight for fifth or sixth place. I'm not excited by that: if you must fight for fifth place then little by little you lose enthusiasm. "By racing this way, you lose the joy of riding. Besides the ego, when you know you get on the track and you will regularly get beaten, it gets hard. And if you don't enjoy yourself on the track, everything else gets even heavier. "We need to try, all together, to do the best we can to arrive at the end of the year with a vastly improved bike. It would be the best thing because it would solve many problems."

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi lashes out after Qatar nightmare


Asked about comparisons to Casey Stoner, who collected 23 wins and one championship with Ducati, Rossi said the Australian had adapted because he had evolved with the team. "He Stoner has a very peculiar riding style and he was also young in 2007, so it was easier for him to adapt to Ducati, Rossi explained. "He evolved with Ducati, so he should thank Ducati because if he has learned to ride in the way he rides today it's because he grew up with this bike, which if you don't ride it in that particular way you are screwed."

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi lashes out after Qatar nightmare


The incredible thing is that this characteristic is similar to all the Ducatis I've ridden since 2010: whether it's the version with no chassis, or the one with the carbon-fibre front, of the one with the aluminium front, or the one with the full chassis... it doesn't ever change, that's incredible. "The engine is another very important problem. We need a more manageable engine: ours is very aggressive, more than Honda's and a lot more than Yamaha's. "By looking for top performance you might end up neglecting rideability a bit. That's a mistake. What do you need all that power for if you can't take advantage of it?"

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi lashes out after Qatar nightmare


Here is Rossi's interview. Age penalises you, it's true, but a difficult year doesn't make you forget how to stay with the leading pack. In my opinion, I still know how to do it," Rossi told Motosprint. It's very clear who makes our bike Filippo Preziosi is the boss and the thinking brain behind everything. It's up to him to help us. Our problems are very clear what doesn't work at the rear, under acceleration, in my opinion comes from the front, and the cause is understeering. At turn-entry, because of something we don't know, the front doesn't allow you to tighten the turn. This understeering is the biggest problem. Cont..

MotoGP » Jerez MotoGP test times - Friday (Final)


It's looking like a carbon copy of last year for Rossi, Hayden seems to be quicker too so I think we have to be serious about what we are seeing, whether this is about whether Rossi just can not ride this bike or not or maybe it just is not capable of going that fast the writings on the wall I think. Looking at how fast some are below him I think that he may well be looking at being over taken by some of them too. Other than that we could be in for a good year as it looks as if Honda & Yamaha are fairly even.

MotoGP » Jorge Lorenzo makes 2012 predictions


It's going to be difficult to bet against Casey unless Yamaha or Ducati can pull something out of the bag to give them the edge. I don't think we will see a repeat of the dismal year Rossi had last year, I'm not making any excuses because clearly Rossi could not get to grips with that bike. I'm just going to point this out though, he was comfortable with his last 2 japanese bike's, he was not comfortable with the Ducati last year so therefore did not have the confidence to push it & if he did he would crash it. We need to look at this & I think that this new bike is going to give Rossi his confidence back, you only need to read his comments on the first test of the new bike to see that he is very happy with the new chassis. Only time will tell, but if the Ducati is competetive then I expect nothing less than a much better season for Rossi & I can see him on the poduim a fair few times this year, I don't think the title will be in reach for Rossi in 2012. I would say that the top

MotoGP » British Eurosport extends MotoGP TV deal


Hopefully Dorna will see sense come the end of next year when the damn contract expires. BBC coverage suck's, can't be bothered to check who posted the $hite about fanboys watching on the BBC, I have never heard so much crap, people that are interested in Motogp want to watch it on the best channel with the best commentary team, Mr Ryder, Mr Moody, & of course Mr Spalding, these guys are brilliant. Can't wait for the new season to start.
