MotoGP » Sepang MotoGP test times - Tuesday (Final)


Codger: Sash.....why are you bashing Dovi ? 3rd in the World on a Honda. Only the 'Aliens' scored more podiums last year. A World champion. I notice that your final list only consisted of 'Aliens'. Maybe only top 4 is good enough for you ?
I am not bashing him, I am just telling that I can not get a good feel on how good he really is. He is a solid finisher but not really a killer / motogp world champion rider. Can he really ride a Ducati or any bike to a WC? That's my question. Last year for example started great and promising but he faded into the background after the first couple of races.

MotoGP » Sepang MotoGP test times - Tuesday (Final)


Last year I already wondered how good is Ducati's lineup really? This is only testing and Ianone showed some good racing last year. But how good is Doviziosio? I couldn't tell on the Honda - not as good as Stoner or Pedrosa for sure-, maybe level with Crutchlow on a Yamaha... Even his 250 years were hard to judge. What could Stoner do on this bike if he ran all season (trained and focussed), what could Pedrosa do? Lorenzo or even Rossi given the current state of the bike?

MotoGP » Sepang test stopped after 290km/h Baz accident


The team ran extremely low rear pressure. Another low pressure rear tire on Baz's machine was also in very bad shape after a previous run. The pic of the tire shows complete delamination of the rubber from the carcass and a large a tear in the carcass itself. Looks like an overheating issue from running low pressure. The stress of the high rotational force probably caused delamination and the "blow".

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi visits Bali


Harris27:
Sasha Alexandrovich: The guy for whom Michelin did night shifts during race weekends to build special race tires and flew them in on race morning.
Michelin did that for other riders who still weren't as fast as Rossi!! (well except Toni Elias, but Toni was a God on 2 wheels, proved himself again and again.... didn't he?) Anyway Go Rossi Go!!! And no not go away, you'll still be mixing it when you 60!!
Elias only did good when he used saturday night specials that Rossi rejected.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi visits Bali


The rookie rule was stupid to begin with. I know of no other type of sport where a rookie was prevented to use the best gear by rules. Does a rookie at Wimbledon have to use a racket from the local shop instead of the best racket available. Does a talent like Hamilton have to start his F1 career in anything but a McLaren. Do rookie socker players have to play on 2nd class kicks when they play their first game in the Premier League? It was a stupid rule. People like Rossi, Lorenzo, Pedrosa, Marquez, Doohan -first race on a Rothmans Honda- really have to start on a B-choice factory machine? Why!? I am happy it is gone and any future talent can go to a top team straight away. Spies and Simoncelli should have been on top machines, but stupid rules prevented that.

Guna4699: @Sasha Alexandrovich: Rossi was the one who was the first to benefit from Honda's traction and launch controls. so you mean to say Marc also won't stand out on equal machinery because he had seamless upshift, downshift and complete seamless tech all before main rivals?
I expect nobody to really stand out except perhaps Dani Pedrosa because of his riding style suiting the Michelins perfectly. Just as Ianone seems to get on with them really well. I expect JL, VR and MM to be very close to eachother. If VR at least gets his qualifying sorted. The only champion who rode 2nd class bikes for a while was Casey Stoner. And Rossi when we count his Ducati years too.
