MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident


People are arguing about dirty tactics from Marc but I just believe it was an ill calculated pass bourne out of passion to win. The real issue is that he could have taken them both out or worse...seriously injured Vale. If MM tried that pass without Vale there he would have ended on his ****..he had both the front and rear sliding. If Vale had resisted and pushed to make the turn both would have gone down..Vale reacted correctly and saved both MM and himself.

MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident


SkyWilk: If Rossi didnt even brake, and went straight through the turn, he would always be ahead, and still win the race Mr. Webb, what kind of an argument is that?... Rossi gained an advantage by not even atempting to make the turn at some point, thats that.
Nice simplification but you neglected the whole "when he got hit" part, with his knee down....he was ahead...

MotoGP » Marquez: I feel that we won the race


So, I am ok with the attempted pass...Rossi expected the attempt from MM, and already had a strategy in hand...that was not to crash and be first. To accomplish this, he would have to hold the line but if the contact was aggressive enough....which it was, I watched MM lose the front completely, sliding the front and rear..he was out of control...when MM got it back under control he was out on the far left curb....so Rossi quickly calculated his only option...through the gravel...he popped the front wheel up to prevent it from burying in the gravel and this is how he kept it upright... YES, Rossi knew since he was ahead at the time of the incident...if he cut (which was his only option) he would win the race...since he never gained a position...only held the one he had....MM attempt to pass can only be viewed as him hitting Rossi since Rossi was ahead...it doesn't matter whether Rossi closed the line or not...he was ahead when the incident happened...good attempt by MM..but Rossi won...

Rossi's knee was down in the right hander when he got hit....how do you suppose he did not attempt to make the turn? They both went wide.. meaning MM was too hot into the turn..he was all the way out to the curb...so where possibly could Rossi go if he was half bike ahead on the outside?.. He was pushed...difference is instead of forcing the impossible turn like Edwards tried in 2006... and crashed...Rossi calculated that he had to run through the gravel...tactically smart if you asked me...

MotoGP » Marquez: I feel that we won the race


PS. Rossi would have done the same if he was behind MM....he said so about his pass on Lorenzo in Catalunya 2009... "That he don't know if he crash but maybe they both crash together...it is the last corner so we must try" ...lol not sure if this was verbatim but dang close....so I cannot be a hypocrite with MM about his attempt...however I am surprise he thought it was Rossi's fault for holding the line or closing..any rider would have done it..I am sure he could not expect Rossi to just crash or park it in the gravel...if Rossi had held the corner both him and MM would have crashed....so, while I like MM, he owes his second place to Rossi...by first been beaten solidly and second for getting off the line when MM was out of control which gave him the room he need to stand it back up and finish second.... Please MM and Rossi and. Lorenzo keep up the tight racing ..loving it

MotoGP » Lorenzo readies himself for ‘big challenge’


Yearby23: I don't ..... Rossi has qualified on the front row once is season and everyone's going mad. Jorge will be there tomorrow and if he wins en there'll be no more excuses from the VR46 camp. This is Rossis race to lose, it's a good track for him. People have a short term memory forgetting that Lorenzo won the last 4 races and discredit him saying it's only because he can qualify....that's part of the game. If Lorenzo qualifies well, "he can onLy win from the front" If Rossi qualifies well "Goat goat,Lorenzo is rubbish blah blah"
Please do not generalize...I am a Rossi fan..but have mad respect for Lorenzo. Lorenzo wins because he is good, and so does Rossi. Both use their strengths to gain whatever possible advantage...for Lorenzo that means excellent Q and breaking away at the front...nothing wrong with that.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: A special feeling


We have all been blaming VRs poor qualifying performance for his inability to close JL down....he now has a perfect starting position and his challenger is in a polar opposite world back in 8th....however, winning is never a foregone conclusion... And if he doesn't win...I am sure we will never hear the end of it...I want him to beat Lorenzo but if he races his butt off and doesn't but finishes on the podium...I understand...racing is like this, tyres, temperature, weather, mechanical..other riders etc... With that said I expect a victory...simply because he is fast, consistent and on form...and the last time he did a weekend like this..through FPs etc...Misano 2014...no one could stay with him...including a dominant Marquez!!!!

MotoGP » Redding: We need to build on Barcelona


I am not a huge Redding fan but I believe the boy is talented...although I am not sure how high up this field that will put him. What I said last year was it will take the whole first half of the season before he got some decent results and he might show a splash in the last half...meaning on one occasion I expect him....of his own merit not due to crashes...to make a top 5 result.. However, I was one that also thought he was running his mouth a bit...by disrespecting Alvaro B, thinking that he could automatically get on a factory Honda and do what Bautista did...he is not even close yet!!!! I think he did not realize that his Open bike was not even of the same pedigree as the factory bike....and is now seeing that. With that said he also has an inexperience MotoGP crew that are not helping him enough because they are busy learning as well...Gresini would have gotten him up to speed faster...IMHO...

MotoGP » Redding: We need to build on Barcelona


HansieMGP: Sooner or later this season he and his team will sorted out I think. The team is new to MotoGP and Scott cannot adapt at the moment. The Honda has some problems, especially with the current tyres and the extra power he has with this Honda. Last year was not too bad, he was a rookie and was the best placed Honda production rider....
Spot on...but I believe he also underestimated the challenge...the fact that he race and beat MM on the odd occasion...he assumed that on similar equipment he could do what MM does and especially...he thought he could do it this year not being a rookie..he did not look past the increase in speed which he thought would solve his issues from the production Honda...only to realize factory and proddy Honda have nothing in common...but with an experienced crew like Gresini he could do much better...

MotoGP » Rossi: Lorenzo race potential equal to mine


SCBonneville: For those that say that Rossi's not being able to top Lorenzo in these last four races is solely down to qualifying. I suggest that you go to MotoGP.com and do a simple lap time analysis for the last four races. If you do, you will find that at Jerez and Mugello, it wouldn't have made any difference were Rossi qualified, Jorge was hands down faster, lap after lap after lap, start to finish. No one but Jorge was going to win those two races. At Le Mans and Catalunya, yes, Rossi's qualifying position cost him a chance at fighting for the victory. He had nearly equal lap times early and had as fast or faster lap times than Jorge in the last half of both races. Bottom line here, unless Jorge or Rossi stumble, it's definitely a Yamaha year.
Agreed...but do not forget Qatar, America, and Argentina... Yamaha in control for sure but of the 7 races so far race pace wise...VR dominant for 3, Lorenzo for 2 and they tie for 2...JL with more wins..so that is a
