MotoGP » Agostini tips Rossi as excitement, pressure rises


Jakel: Ducati is a big dent. The 2 years winless and unable the handle the Ducati have knock Rossi from chances of being the greatest. Regardless of numbers. Couldn't win on a bike that someone else could win on. No GOAT. Hailwood Ago then Rossi
Hey hold your horses there mate. Stoner won on the 2007 Ducati against the 2007 Hondas and Yamahas. From then on he only won occasionally, and more often than not he was falling off. It was his choice to risk so much OK but clearly he just couldn't be consistently there. Nevertheless, need to remind you that bikes change significantly from year to year? Rossi rode the 2011-12 Ducatis, QUITE different to what Stoner rode and against QUITE different opponents to what Stoner rode against. It's not the brand sticker on the fairing that makes a bike go around you know.

MotoGP » Official: Nicky Hayden swaps MotoGP for WSBK


Mark53:
Jack Mordino: Hayden is a likeable chap but his career after 2006 has been like a dictionary definition of "regression".
Yes and it had nothing to do with the lousy bikes he was riding. I guess you forgot Rossi didn't do anything on the Duc as well.
Funny you compare Rossi to Hayden. Because the end of 2006 saw Hayden as the champion and they both had the same general opportunities towards more achievements. What happened after that? Rossi got a couple of championships, a load of victories, and is currently leading the championship. Hayden got systematically overshadowed by all his Honda teammates, then regressed from a prominent factory ride to a not so... prominent one (Honda to Ducati), and then to an Open class bike (essentially the bottom level of MotoGP), achieving nothing. Not quite the same eh? And, to de-victimise Hayden completely, it was his choice to go to Ducati, nobody else's.

MotoGP » Maverick turns Top Gun in fighter jet ride!


tedleaf: I hope they have him a proper "rocket launch" Take f18 to 10000 feet,stand her on her nose,throttle back until she goes into a vertical stall,hit the throttles all the way,engage after burner,scream...and scream and scream. .
Actually if you did this in an F-18 all you would achieve woud be to crash. The F-18 has a Thrust/Weight ratio of less than 1 so it would never accelerate vertically. It would only continue falling. Its engines alone simply cannot support the weight of the aircraft. Get in an F-15, F-16 or an F-22 though and the story changes.

MotoGP » Maverick turns Top Gun in fighter jet ride!


BCTriumph: We had a jet with a greater than 1:1 thrust/weight ratio way back in the 60's. Used to go vertical from ground level. I miss the Harrier.
Yep, it was exceptional for that era to have an aircraft with that kind of T/W. And the Harrier was even more exceptional because of the elegant, and beautifully implemented solution of providing vertical thrust. Turbo stream powers rear outlets, bypass stream powers forward ones. And the heavy engine placed right where the CoG should be. Genius.

MotoGP » Agostini tips Rossi as excitement, pressure rises


Realist: It's very interesting to hear claims of "speed inferiority" and "struggling to make podiums" when referencing Rossi, who has been on a supremely long podium streak since last season (that just ended the last race), and has been leading the championship since race one. His OVERALL speed and consistency is why he is in the position that he's in.
Of course Rossi is blindingly fast. But everything is relative. Relating to Lorenzo, Rossi himself admitted to being marginally slower. And since Lorenzo is the other main title contender everything concerning Rossi's speed tends to mostly get compared to Lorenzo. So... voila you have "speed inferiority".

MotoGP » Agostini tips Rossi as excitement, pressure rises


ondablade does have a point but still the championship to me is a thrilling affair. Because although everything that' has been said is true, Rossi is still leading the ch/ship and despite his speed inferiority, if it had ended in the last race, he would be champion. And that's why it is exciting: because racing isn't just about fair weather and ideal conditions. It's about all possible conditions and circumstances and the extent to which everybody is able to adapt and perform is usually the extent to which success is achieved. So, all in all, maybe, just maybe, Rossi does have a shot at the championship, not aided by the circumstances but aided by his ability to use the circumstances to his advantage, and these two are entirely different things.
