MotoGP » PREVIEW: MotoGP 15 - The Game


The graphics of the series have always been superb but physics-wise... the series has been a complete disaster. Nomatter what realism level you dial-in, the bikes don't seem to turn naturally. In the older games they turned fast without any amend for the gyroscopic effect and in the later ones they overdid it and the bikes turn like lorries - actually even worse. GP500 was -and is- the king in riding physics.

MotoGP » Rossi was further back than Marquez in 2006


What could possibly mean that Rossi was further back than Marquez in... 2006. Absolutely nothing. Circumstances, playing field, technology, psychology were so different then. A totally pointless comparison. Of course there may be a comeback by Marquez, and of course it may never happen. This comparison does not offer any real insight on anything nor does it even speculate on the odds of a comeback either happening or not. It actually does nothing. It may sound harsh but this is nothing but one of the classic "stir the pot to generate page hits" type of entries that does nothing but degrade crash.net.

MotoGP » ‘Over the limit’ Marquez talks Mugello misery


Watching him launch out of the 5th row in such a forceful way I knew that sooner or later something bad was going to happen to him. He was clearly out of emotional control. I just hoped it wouldn't involve another rider. Marquez proved that he is still unable to graft his urge to win with the maturity to regulate his riding and collect thhe most points possible when things don't go very well. In general, from a spectator's point of view I kind of like the "podium or hospital" mentality but since Marquez is Marquez I can't but be wary.

MotoGP » MotoGP finally returning to Indonesia?


It's not just the size of an audience that matters to the manufacturers, it is also the interest that it exhibits. US audiences have tradittionally been mostly indifferent towards motorcycle "road racing" as they call it. Probably this is because Americans have a strong sports culture and familiarise themselves with the sports that saturate their TV channels from an early age and then everything else seems simply alien. Interestingly enough, in the US motorsports in general have never achieved the status and popularity they have in Europe - or other parts of the world for that matter. So, given the limited interest, the manufacturers behind the sport will tend to invest in relatively virgin and emergning markets, exactly like the asian and south american ones.

MotoGP » Dovi: Now the podium is not enough


Hey guys don't kid yourselves. Dovizioso is really fast but not of champion quality. This requires something extra. Remember when HRC ran 3 factory bikes on the grid (Stoner - Pedrosa - Dovizioso) and he rode one of them: he was beaten by Pedrosa more often than not, and of course Stoner was in another league entirely. His battles with Crutchlow when both on the satellite Yamahas were nice. Crutchlow usually held an edge on pure speed terms but Dovi was much more consistent, in a direct contrast to Crutchlow's erratic performances and frequent crashes. He may have matured since then - I'm not sure, but my current impression is this.

MotoGP » Dovi: Now the podium is not enough


I've got to agree with Realist on this discussion. Ducati has mostly an attitude (read: arrogance) problem. They don't admit the need to change something if it will damage someone's ego unless they are absolutely forced to. Rossi has been unequivocal on this matter, more than once and Preziosi's retention of his seat for so many years is another piece of evidence on that. speaking of Preziosi... the guy just wasn't the proper person for the job he had. He even tried to seek help from a former competitor, ex-Yamaha guru engineer Masao Furusawa, on what to do to cure the understeer problems of his bikes. Come Dall' Igna and ta-da! His bike was immediately competitive.

MotoGP » Rossi: Sorry to Marc for pass


(cont) existence of risk alone, regardless of the final results is reason enough for the degree of associated responsibility to be dcreased. Racing is an inherently risky business so risk can not be avoided altogether but it *has* to be managed and some red lines *have* to be drawn at some points. Also, about Simoncelli I do agree that his passing has thrown a veil of mythos over his name, perhaps unjustifyingly. However, although he shared the same "ragged edge" (as you call it) mentality with Marquez, we have witnessed a completely different attidude from the race authorities towards them. The reason behind this obviously unilateral approach is of course that Marquez wins while Simoncelli didn't. And this shows a little bit of hypicrisy on the part of the racing business which for the sake of commerce is more than willing to adopt a "subobjective" approach on rules interpretation.
