MotoGP » Sentul ‘a street circuit’ for 2017 MotoGP

The Sentul circuit has a big lot of passing places, at least six of them and two of them being ideal texbook passing spots. With Tilke's involvement and the requirement to increase the amount of turns I very much fear that this will become another Valencia. Those MotGP chaps sometimes really make me wonder if Tilke is the only person/team in this world able to design a racetrack.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Third MotoGP crown extra special

The "extra" element that Lorenzo referred to is that this is perhaps the first world motorcycle championship that was won by a team effort and the team members riding different bikes. There's absolutely no doubt about Marquez protecting Lorenzo all race long. He was on his wheel pretty much the whole race, never attempted any pass, and when passed by Pedrosa, a rider on a FASTER pace, he immediately counter-attacked with a successful pass. This is the definition of defending another rider. That said, Marquez is surely the worst b******d I have seen on two wheels (and by a big margin) but there's a limit on how much blame can be put on him. I think that Rossi was wrong about PI and his allegations for that race had more paranoia than merit and thus he created a "self-fulfilled prophecy". How better would things have been if he had shut his mouth and ride the rest of the races with only his riding doing the talking.

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden made a MotoGP Legend

Nicky has always been a fair contender, a likeable character and a dedicated racer. He is also a champion. He has been a positive presence in MoroGP, one of the people that made the sport have a bright and positive outlook. Nicky was always with a smile on his face, never said a bad thing about anyone and was a brave fighter on track. I wish him well and I will always remember fondly his heyday in MotoGP, 2006, when he won his championship. That said, the title "legend" has some really special value to it. A legend is someone who is able to stir emotions and create impressions in a way that transcends time. Legends are discussed long after their career has ended. Hailwood, Agostini, Sheene, Roberts, Lawson, Rainey, Schwantz are proper legends, to name but a few. And I have to make this -perhaps bold- statement that Hayden's presence and achievements although certainly very strong, are a tad short of that level.

MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez made me lose the championship

4. Race direction should start giving penalty points not just on the basis of results (crash or no crash), but on the basis of the danger and deliberateness of the move itself. They should have definitely given Marquez penalty points for all his dangerous moves causing contact. Some of his past antics were so impossible that could only be deliberate, yet he never received any penalty points. This is a real shame. Marquez is clearly an animal causing contact more frequently than any other racer I've ever seen racing. 5. The sorest, and most deeply ridiculous party in all of this was Lorenzo. Championship or no championship, his reaction was way off any limit of team, objectivity or anything else. Without having seen ANY of the shenanigans between Rossi and Marquez, he wailed and jumped like a madman upon hearing the obviously too lenient for his taste penalty imposed on Rossi. So whatever the case, what I have lost some respect for is all of them, but mostly certainly for Lorenzo.

MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez made me lose the championship

I think that: 1. As race direction itself accepted the estimation that Marquez did indeed want to disrupt Rossi, I think Rossi was right in being extremely frustrated with Marquez. 2. Rossi allowed his frustration to turn to questionable racing. I'm absolutely sure he didn't intentionally want to kick Marquez, not because of fairness but because he knows this type of move is visible to the camera and he wouldn't undermine himself so foolishly. So Rossi actually lost the mind games that may have started by Marquez in PI or on Thursday, depending on which side of the "Marzuez deliberately undermining Rossi" conspiracy one tends to find himself on. 3. Race direction correctly sanctioned Rossi. He caused a crash after a deliberate move, intentional or no intentional kick.

MotoGP » No relationship concerns for Rossi, Lorenzo

When VR JL were fiat Yamaha teammates. Lethal combo. If Motogp was only about team's championship, then this pair has all the potential to go down in history as the greatest pair ever.
Yes, but the actual fairing-to-fairing duels are scarce and far in-between. It's not enough to have a points duel. It's been 15 races already and we haven't seen a single serious on-track duel between them. I think one of the best (if not THE best) pair so far from this perspective has been Rainey-Schwantz.
